One of Cole’s and my favorite restaurants in this whole world in Samoeun’s Happy Wok in Plover, Wisconsin. If you are looking for someone who is the master of making authentic sauces for stir fry, they have it figured out. We go there every single time that we travel to visit my parents. Seriously, someContinue reading “Honey Garlic Stir Fry”
Before retirement my mom was a teacher, and one of my favorite cookie recipes is from the school cook at her elementary school. Pudding cookies are a spin on the regular chocolate chip cookie, but instead of using just the traditional cookie ingredients, a pudding mix is added into the batter to make the cookiesContinue reading “Pudding Cookies”
I’m one of those people who meal-plans one week at a time before grocery shopping. Occasionally, I will ask Cole if he has any preferences for the week. (Sidenote, I should ask him more often…whoops.) Usually when I ask this question he will shrug and say, “Doesn’t matter,” but if he ever does have aContinue reading “Four Ingredient Cheez-It Chicken Nuggets”
There are two items in life that Cole and I will always completely agree on. First, sleeping in until 9:30 on the weeknd is the perfect schedule, and second, that brunch is always better than having both breakfast and lunch. This combo of events means that I have practiced making many different breakfast dishes overContinue reading “Cinnamon French Toast”
One of the easiest ways to cook for a crowd is to buy a large roast and shove it in the oven. Many people are intimidated by large beef roasts because they take a substantial amount of time to cook, but overall, they are one of the fastest items you could prepare, so if youContinue reading “Sirloin Tip Roast”
It is my personal belief that all cookies are better when they are super soft. There is nothing more disappointing than picking up a cookie and discovering it’s crunchy. This summer I was in charge of baking a dessert for a family reunion. Cole’s family reunion is a very active event, with people grabbing snacksContinue reading “Super Soft Peanut Butter Blossoms”
Everyone has a favorite way to eat potatoes, and I believe that mashed potatoes are the winner. However, mashed potatoes can be a bit of a let down for people that don’t like gravy considering that is the typical topper for the dish. Cole is one of those people that strongly dislikes gravy, and heContinue reading “Cheesy Monterey Mashed Potatoes”
Cole and I typically only have steak a couple times per year on special occasions such as our anniversary and New Year’s Eve. It’s the one red meat that Cole truly seems to enjoy. Because of this, I typically buy too much when I’m shopping for these special occasions, and we end up with someContinue reading “Steak Quesadillas”
Before the pandemic, I heavily preferred cooking to baking. While this is still true today, one of the items I have enjoyed baking is various different kinds of bread. In fact, it has gotten to the point where I no longer buy bread from the store and stick to making my own instead. When IContinue reading “Homemade Bread”
As I mentioned in my last post, one of the elements of cooking I am trying to perfect is being able to utilize leftovers to minimize my grocery budget. My favorite way of achieving this goal so far is by roasting chickens. Cole and I only like the white meat when the chicken is initiallyContinue reading “Roasted Cornish Hens”
