Cooking In Pajamas


I am something of a potato aficionado. I have eaten far more than my fair share of potato, roasted, baked, chipped, fried, stir fried, mashed - you name it, I have probably tried it. I love potatoes, and today I decided I wanted to eat potatoes for lunch, and this is what I came up with.

These are not especially nutritious, but they're not necessarily bad for you either. I would, however, recommend adding a vegetable or something somewhere on the plate. Or you could just eat potatoes for lunch. Nobody in this corner will judge you.

These potatoes are the easiest thing ever, and you have no reason not to make them. Go make them!

Easy Microwave Potatoes

These potatoes get a lot of flavor from the type of potato you use, so use your favorite. I used Idaho potatoes and really enjoyed them.

Yield: 1 bowl; 2 side

I'm sure most of y'all have been on a bar crawl - you have a list of bars, and you hit them up one after the other, sipping a little of this and a little of that at each one.

This is similar, but with FOOD. While you are certainly welcome bring booze into the mix, these are instructions for figuring out an all food crawl; it's an excellent way to explore a new city!

It's also a really good way to spend a couple of hours with friends without spending a ton of money; if you're on a budget, this is a great way to try lots of different food, and see quite a bit, without breaking the bank. We each paid for one entree at one place, and it came out perfectly for us!

First, you need a walkable city. I myself did this with my friends Eden

My brain feels scrambled. I've thrown all sorts of information in there and given it a good shake, and things are tumbling about pretty wildly right now.

Exam season is upon me, and I am not bearing up well under the stress. Just don't ask me how many hot Cheetos I've consumed, because that could get super embarrassing super fast. My food consumption these days in 50% leftovers, 30% eggs, 10% random free food, and 10% cheese, so you could say things are a bit mad right now.

I'm so excited to finish the semester and start cooking again. In the meantime though, I want to leave this recipe I made a bit ago here.

I'd never made tofu scramble before, so there was quite a bit of googling involved. In the end, I came up with a recipe that hit all the right spots, and was healthy to boot!

So I haven't been cooking much lately, but I have been reading a ton of recipes for when I get my life back post-finals! So, I'm starting a new feature! The "Quick Recipe Fix" - your dose of some of my favorite recipes that I've found on the interwebs.

Enjoy the recipes, and cut me some slack, internet. I've been busy :)

1.) Love and Lemons is one of my favorite food blogs; they have gorgeous pictures, and I love their fresh approach to food. They have a cookbook out right now that everyone should totally get. I'm also waiting for the day when I can try this recipe for Chickpea Flour Pizza Crust because YUM.

2.) Minimalist Baker hits it out of the park every time. They have a real talent for finding fresh, simple recipes with easy (and short!) cleanup! Check out their recipe for Gingery Thai Kale Salad

Hey y'all, we're back! Sorry for the brief and awkward hiatus; it was certainly not our intention, and won't be happening again! Sumu was moving, and I was letting law school rain on my parade. But we're back now!

Sumu's all settled into her new apartment in the city, and while law school is still kicking my ass, I've decided to chill out. Law school itself was never the point, and forgetting that is the number one cause of stress for me.

So, we're kicking off our triumphant return with a throwback recipe. When I got to California to visit Sumu, we made fresh rolls. I'll be honest and say that I don't know the difference between a spring roll and a fresh roll. What I do know is that fresh rolls, full of bright, delicious veggies and sauces, feel like spring time to me.

This recipe is easily customizable,
