GREENS! And not the kind that starts with a “K” and ends with
cruciferous christ incarnate ”ale”.
If you don’t already like greens, this probably won’t be the recipe that changes your mind, but it’s definitely my go-to when I need a quick way to shovel greens into my face.
Steam greens in a covered skilled until they’re about half cooked.
Hope all my local Georgians survived Hothlanta*/SnowJam 2014.
My bf, with a shopping cart?—after 6+ hrs in the car he and his friend gave up, parked, and walked another hour to get home. Hot chocolate, tea, and biryani were shoved on them as soon as they made it through the door.
Sorry, just had to mention that. On to the real post. Parfait.
It’s summer parfait because this is what my bf essentially lived off of this past summer. I get that I’m kind of in the wrong season, but I didn’t post it before now because I wanted to have homemade granola and yogurt posts done to link to. It took a few months for me to realize that if I wait for everything to be perfect before I post, it just ain’t happening.
Layers of honeyed yogurt, crunchy pecan granola, and sweet summer berries make this a really simple and fresh dessert. If you lightly honey plain yogurt and make sugar-free granola, it’s mostly healthy too.
We love strawberries+blueberries+raspberries, but ripe peach and blackberry are also great in it.
Now that I’ve embraced the fact that my posts don’t have to have perfectly enumerated recipes, I’ll be spamming your dash more often.
*favorite new phrase.
You can offer my boyfriend a 5-star, top-chef, orgasm-in-your-mouth meal (one that somehow has an ice sculpture and live fire worked into it), and he would turn it down for Grice.
(I think we call it “Grice” as a truncation of “Egg Rice.”)
It’s caramelized onions and peppers, topped with eggs sunny side up, set on a bed of rice, hit with a
downpour drizzle of kecap manis (sweet soy sauce) and sriracha, and garnished with green onion (and a sprinkle of childhood nostalgia).
It’s nothing fancy, but it was his go-to meal as a kid. Not guaranteeing it’s gonna hit your spot, but it works for him so I thought I’d share.
*Not an authentic, painstaking caramelizing, just a light browning to bring out the sugars. But caramelizing sounds better.
Boyfriend says you can’t make a gyro without the meat. Challenge accepted…
…and completed. With a bite in his mouth, he’s like “alright, maybe it’s good.”
That’s some high praise right there.
Made with seasoned and grilled shitake mushrooms and tempeh. MmmmMmmmm.
A billion egg whites later…
Horrible little deformed feet, but feet! I was kind of giving up hope that it was possible to make
ugly macarons with stevia.
I’ve still got a long way to go, but at least I know I’m on the right track. Will post once I’ve got something that doesn’t require a bag over its head first.
On macaron batch 4. Still no feet, but the texture is getting there. Maybe I should have tried mastering a regular macaron before attempting sugar-free? Nah.
you will not defeat me. Bring it on.
Just don’t lord it over me when you do win and I’m left crying in a corner over 17 failed batches, hysterically shoving cracked and ugly macaron shells into my face.
A request? Rock on! I will do my best! Anything in particular you’re looking for?
