Recipe: Moco Loco

I saw and ate a lot of Hawaiian food back when I lived in Seattle but I never had the privilege of eating moco loco which is basically something like a trash plate style dish: hamburger patties with mushroom gravy served over rice with a fried egg on top. Feel free to make this vegetarian…

Recipe: Mushroom Stroganoff

My husband loves mushroom dishes lately and he also loves stroganoff (which I hate) so I figured it was worth it to give this a try and what do you know? He loved it. I find it kind of weird but it comes together easy enough with things I usually have on hand that it…

Recipe: Breakfast Braid

Basically just another twist on making a breakfast sandwich of meat, cheese, and eggs. This is great if you want to make grab and go slices for breakfast and freeze them or if just want to look like you made a fancy version of breakfast for dinner. This is a super easy recipe that comes…

Recipe: Chicken Satay Salad

This is a really delicious salad even though I’m someone who usually doesn’t like savory applications of peanut butter. This has just the right amount of heat and sweet that makes it delicious. My suggestion would be to prepare everything ahead of time except the rice noodle and just make these right before you serve…

Recipe: M&M Cookies

These are classic and easy and since I’m not actually a big fan of peanut butter I like these better than the peanut butter m&m cookies I previously made. This is a single bowl, no wait cookie that comes out absolutely perfect every time and is so simple you probably have everything in your house…

Recipe: Vegetable Biryani

This is not a difficult recipe but it is time consuming. The weird part is before I finished making this I was sure I’d never make this again but after eating it, it might just be worth the hassle. I will probably try other biryani configurations in the future but this dish will make you…

Recipe: Cucumber Carrot Sushi Rolls

These are actually a lot easier to make then you’d think and while it’s a bit like pancakes (your first roll while likely not look great) each roll will keep improving. I’ve never particularly talented with my hands and these come out impressive anyway. The nice thing is that they have no fish or cooked…

Recipe: Picnic Pie

I think of this as a perfect representation of what I think British food is like. It’s straight forward and to the point. A hunk of cooked sausage stuffed with some boiled eggs and wrapped in pastry. Nothing fussy or complicated, easy to carry in a lunch, easy to eat with one hand. It’s so…

Recipe: Crunchwrap Supreme

Since there’s no Taco Bell here in Estonia I’ve got to make do by making my own weird junk not-quite-Mexican food. Never mind that I’ve never had a Crunchwrap and I’ve been to Taco Bell exactly once in my life, it seems like a noble goal. This is basically an upgraded strange version of a…

Recipe: Aloo Matar Gobi

This is a super simple curry made from plenty of vegetables so that it is really filling. It’s a really dry curry so it’s especially good with some nice chewy bread or even yogurt as a side but it doesn’t end up with a gravy so there’s nothing to sop up. This would work really…
