I may love making just about everything from scratch, but I am not above “just add water” pancake mix. However, I rarely “just add water”…I almost always add something amazing to it so that I’m actually enjoying my dusty box of pancake mix. This is a great recipe for those days when you’re out of everything you need to make homemade pancake batter — like I usually am…
I wish you could see the intense bodyroll action these amazing cookies have bestowed upon me — followed by a super happy mouthgasmic jig. The fact that I can now make an amazing chocolate chip cookie in the privacy of my own home and thighs…is so heartwarming. This recipe comes from New York Times, and will definitely test your patience. I tried this same recipe a little over a year ago and they came out terrible. Why? Well, I was too impatient and baked them almost as soon as I made the dough. Don’t do what I did. You absolutely have to let these babies rest a full 24 hours, up to 72 hours for the goodness your mouth awaits. Believe when I say it’s worth the wait.
These are so good, you’ll slap your mother and ask yourself why in the hell you wasted so much time at Red Lobster when you could have been making these delicious cheesy morsels at home! I am so serious. That is not a joke.
Every time I visit Wegmans — my holy grail food shopping mecca, I am guaranteed to overspend and buy stuff that isn’t even on my list. Something I always get, that’s never on my list is their big ass container of pre-washed mixed greens in the produce section. It’s a salad lovers dream. I am admittedly bad at eating vegetables every single day, so this salad is my savior. I basically grab a handful, toss it with about a tablespoon of whatever vinaigrette I want to seduce my senses, and keep it movin’. I had a few leftover shrimp just relaxin in my fridge and realized I had a few other yummy fixin’s to throw together. So I tossed a few shrimp with some seasoning, and lightly coated them with panko (Japanese breadcumbs, for those of you not in the know) and seared them until cooked thru and crisp. It turned out to be one of those yummy last minute dishes that you can prepare in minutes.
I’m a complete sucker for creamy pasta dishes. Don’t get me wrong…the red stuff is awesome too, but the creamy, buttery, fatty sauces? Sign me up, please! Pure comfort 😀 Here is a great basic alfredo recipe that is stupid easy and minimal on ingredients. The best part of this recipe is that you can make this in about a half hour, great for those short on time. You can add all sorts of vegetables, meats, or seafood to this dish and really make it your own. In other words, go nuts!
