Lazy Weekday Dinners: Chicken Teriyaki

These days I’ve been super obsessed with oven-baking basically almost anything. I consider this method of cooking to be the easiest, simplest way to have a nice dinner without having to stand in front of the stove for your dish to cook for 20-30 minutes. All you need is to prepare the ingredients, throw everything…

Gratin de pâtes au boeuf haché et champignons

Whoa… that’s quite a mouthful, right? Don’t worry though, it’s basically just a fancy name for pasta gratin with minced beef and mushrooms. As you can probably tell, yes, it’s French. I found this dish while I was traveling in France a couple of months ago. Some of you probably not know this, but I…

Precious Pumpkin Soup

WINTER FOOD! I hope you’re excited about this recipe as I am 😀 If this isn’t the first time you’re following my blog, you know by now that some of my recipes are highly influenced by my experiences with my friends. That’s why I have been thinking of doing a “Friends’ Recipe Session” for this…

Simple Riz au Lait

I say nothing is better than a nice bowl of rice pudding on a cold rainy (or snowy) day. If you like desserts, of course. But then again, you can’t really trust people who hate desserts, I’m just saying. For some of you who are not familiar with the idea of sweet rice, let alone rice AND…

Homemade Hamburger Helper

First of all, let me start by saying… Happy New Year 2016!!! I hope you all have spent your new year’s eve well, but mind you that it was only the beginning. There are still a lot to face in 2016 and I sure hope that not only we will survive this year, but we’ll…

B.O.C. Grilled Sandwich

I really really wanted grilled cheese sandwich when I was watching Glee where in one episode Finn (played by the late Cory Monteith) was making one and found Jesus’ face printed in the burnt section of the bread (the episode was called “Grilled Cheesus”). Yeah obviously, plot of the episode is second to the food featured in it…

Glorious Gratin Dauphinois

  So I stumbled upon gratin dauphinois when it was a winter time and I was missing French comfort food A LOT. I found this dish and another one called Gratin de Pâtes (I’ll give out the recipe for it some other time) and I had the urge to make it right away that night….

Classic Creamy Comfy Mac ‘n Cheese

I think we all can agree that Mac and Cheese is one of THE ultimate comfort food ever existed. So I figure it would make sense to start off with this recipe. Sure, we all can make Mac and Cheese since Kraft is generous enough to bestow upon us that classic little blue box (that is not…

Prologue

I fell in love with cooking and baking on my first year of college. At first, I was just following the other girls in my dorm who OBVIOUSLY had an experience with a knife before and I thought, “Well, there’s no way I will only eat cafeteria food for the next 4 years of my…
