  1. Frozen Lasagna. BLECH!!!!!

    March 3, 2012 by Tori

    So I was feeling a little lazy for dinner, so I made a frozen dinner. Wrong move. I followed all of the directions for a frozen lasagna dinner and waited for the allotted time. When it came out, it looked pretty, but it tasted awful! The sauce was bland and thick. There was no meat and no cheese, it was pretty much floppy pasta with rubber band flavored sauce. Do not buy it! It is a huge waste of your money, and takes an hour to cook!Don’t buy frozen lasagna! Coconut flavored La Croix for dinner.

  2. Lunch time! Asian inspired salad.

    March 3, 2012 by Tori

    For lunch today, me and my dad made salads. But not just any salads. Asian salads! We started out chopping the vegetables. You can use left over vegetables from breakfast (see “Sautéed Veggies with English Muffins”) Or you can start with new vegetables. These are the ones I used. 1/2 a bunch of Romaine Lettuce. 1/2 large carrot ,1/4 cucumber and 2 green onions. Chop them up and put it in a salad bowl. Next I made the dressing. Mix in Worchicire, Soy sauce, White Rice Vinegar , Toasted Sesame Oil,Salt and Pepper and Ginger Paste. Eyeball all of it to your liking. Mix in sauce to the vegetables and enjoy!

  3. Sautéed Veggies with Toasted English Muffins

    March 3, 2012 by Tori

    So today for breakfast, (My little brother and his 2 friends made roman noodles) I made sautéed vegetables. Its a simple concept, but super delicious! So first I started chopping the veggies. You can use any type you want but this is what I used. I chopped up one large carrot. One stalk of green onion. 2 large Baby Bella mushrooms. 8 stalks of asparagus. 1/4 of a green bell pepper, and some leftover potatoes. I heated up a medium skillet with butter and put my veggies in. While they were cooking I took some Havarti cheese and grated it one the top. After about 5 min, I took out my veggies and sprinkled even more cheese onto them. I toasted an english muffin and “TaDa!” A delicious breakfast for 1. Enjoy!

  4. I’m making waffles! (And white gravy)

    March 3, 2012 by Tori

    So today I tried making a white gravy that I saw someone make on “Chopped”. The recipe is super basic. Equal parts flour, equal parts butter and then you add milk to the right consistency. Then you Salt and Pepper ALOT! So I tried to be different and add a little chicken bouillon. It came out way to salty. I mean like its like a chunk of salt kissing a chunk of salt while salt was raining from the heavens. With salt on the side. BLECH! I tried to cut the saltiness by added some pepper. Didn’t work. Next I tried cutting it with some lemon juice. Didn’t work. So I added water. Messed up the consistency. Oh well, I’ll try again tomorrow…. My mom just made waffles at 11 o’clock at night. Picture of batter below. They are yum yum yummy! Recipie follows…

    1 3/4 cup of flour

    1 tablespoon of baking powder

    1/4 teaspoon of salt

    2 egg yolks

    1 3/4 cups of milk

    1/2 cup cooking oil

    2 egg whites

    Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. In another bowl, beat egg yolks slightly. Beat in milk and oil. Add wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. In a small bowl beat egg whites until whites are stiff. Pour into a greased waffle iron. Cook according to the waffle iron directions. Take them out and garnish with fresh fruit, syrup and powder sugar. Enjoy!

  5. Update!

    March 3, 2012 by Tori

    Hey everyone! Happy March! So since I haven’t been on my site in FOREVER! I decided to give everyone a quick update of whats been going on. I made the CYT (Christian Youth Theater) producing of “Fiddler on the Roof”. Then I was in “The Little Mermaid”. I also took to cooking! I L-O-V-E cooking! I will be starting separate posts just for cooking, food or anything culinary related. I will also be starting seperate just for theater blogging! Ok now prepared to be shocked. I lost my turtle. Thats right. How can someone LOSE a turtle! Long story short, my little bro was showing my sisters friend my turtle and forgot to put him back in his cage. 1 month later and we all assumed he was dead. Imagine this. A turtle with no water, no food and 2 cats and 2 dogs prowling around the house looking for a snack for 1 month. Wouldn’t you assume that said turtle would be dead? Well he wasn’t! He is fine now. All hydrated and fed. Anyway, I think I’ll start on my cooking blog soon. Auf Wiedersehen!
