‘ve been thinking about smoothies a lot, lately. I usually allow myself one bolthouse smoothie a week, but those bad boys are expensive and many are from concentrate (which means I’m getting more water than I’d like from them). So I looked up some healthy smoothies (aka I listened to YouTube tutorials on smoothies for an entire work day), and decided to make my own recipe. I was originally going to call them Lion Lickers because my hope was that they would be pink, but they are brown, so it doesn’t work.
Fangirls, I made falafel last week, and I’m incredibly proud of myself for doing so. It’s not that it was super labor intensive, or wildly difficult, but it was something that I wanted to make, and I got my s together and made it! It’s a very fulfilling feeling. I don’t know if this falafel will make you feel as strongly as it made me feel, but it’s worth a shot, right?
Gotta eat ’em all ’cause he’s Danny Phantom.
Danny Phantom was a pretty rad show about a dude in high school who accidentally turned into a half ghost and he had to deal with his ghost hunter parents along with other teenage nonsense. It was a fun show, and awhile back someone suggested that I make something Danny Phantom themed for Nerds Gotta Eat. And here we are.
Fangirls, I struggled with these. Not the cakes themselves, but the frosting. I got incredibly frustrated and was so down on myself, but when I brought them in to work, they were a hit. I’m really glad I pushed through with this, because they were incredibly tasty, and reminiscent of one of my favorite Big Hero 6 characters, Honey Lemon!
I messed this recipes up in about 50 different ways, and it stressed me right the heck out because not cooking well does that to me. But I followed through and finished it, and we ended up with a pretty good meal!
I was a bit frustrated with the difficulty of the other Blue Apron recipe I tried last week, but this one was much easier! This casserole (though not quite as fancy as the one they show) was tasty and we got 4 servings out of it instead of 2. Let’s get cookin!
For ages now, I’ve been curious about Blue Apron. They sent me ads through email and mail, and I finally took the plunge, and with a pretty good deal (around $35 for a service that costs about $60 on average). I was excited about a couple things right from the start; you get to tell them you’re vegetarian and pick out your three recipes, awesome. So when I went onto my laptop to edit my preferences (their mobile site is finicky to say the least), I learned that as a vegetarian, I had to have a mushroom dish in my box. I don’t like mushrooms, unless they are well hidden, but I ended up with my only option being a mixed mushroom situation. With that, I was excited for 2 of my 3 meals that I would be getting.
