Avocado Shrimp Ceviche-Estillo Sarita

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Avocado”. Avocados are one of my favourite fruits and I have made many dishes with it so I had to dig deep into my brain parts to think of something to make. Then I saw this recipe and I was glad I did because of how easy and delicious it was. Ceviche is one of those dishes that I love, not really difficult to make, and yet I very rarely have it. To be the fact that food can be cooked in citric acid is so interesting. That and yeast, I cannot wrap my mind around yeast. Confession time, I might have bought martini glasses just for this dish. I have been making more drinks lately so they will go to good use though. Just more excuses for martinis.

Poutine-Style Twice-Baked Potatoes

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Potatoes”. For a person who hates these boring themes and not the fondest of potatoes, I am really glad I made this. I found this theme boring because so many dishes have potatoes in them, I feel like they are like onions in that regard. Also, I was hesitant to make this because of the time commitment just for a baked potato but god damn it was so worth it.

St. Louis Style Spicy BBQ Chicken Drumsticks with Blue Cheese

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “American Midwest”. While I usually do not go for chicken when cooking, I have always had a soft spot for wings, drumsticks, and thighs. Also, the fact that these were cooked “St. Louis” style intrigued me because I want to go to St. Louis just for the food. Hell, I have traveled for worse reasons before.

Stuffed Jalapenos

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “Presentation”. I definitely dreaded this theme since my plating is kind of crap so I decided to make something simple and tried to make it prettier. Enter these Jalapenos stage right. These can go well as a side dish or if you are like me, just scarf them down for no damn reason.

Manhattan Clam Chowder

This dish was created for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “chowder”. The first thing I thought of was clam chowder because I love it but then I realised that I have never even eaten Manhattan Clam Chowder. After looking online, I found that most people either love or hate it and there was very little in between. I decided to give it a shot since looking at the ingredients, it seemed like it would taste really good.

Curried Pumpkin, Red Lentil, and Chicken Soup

There was supposed to be this big storm coming in over the weekend so I immediately thought about movies, video games, soup, and Gluehwein. Well the storm was less than impressive but dammit I wanted some mulled wine, a Pabst onesie, and soup. I also, wanted this to be filling enough to take to work for lunches. This soup was just the thing, spicy, filling, and delicious. Continue reading “Curried Pumpkin, Red Lentil, and Chicken Soup”
