In my kitch..

Cheez crackers

These crackers are delicious, a mix between goldfish and saltines. I’ve been wanting to make crackers for awhile but was searching for the “right” recipe. These hit the spot, plus their tiny! I suppose you could make them however big or small you wanted but these are about the size of a dime.  Perfect for soup!

(Fluffy) Graham crackers

Not too delicious or easy on the eyes. I came up with this recipe based on a few I’ve been eyeing up. I don’t know exactly what went wrong.. too short baking time? not enough oil? But they were sort of… disgusting. Or maybe thats too harsh. I’ll use them in a graham cracker crust, and try my hand at it again some other time.

Maple walnut granola with flax

This is soooo good! My mom and I made some back in November and I’ve been hooked ever since. There are no added oils, and it is sweetened with pureed dates, making it the healthiest granola on the planet.. (maybe?) It is beyond delicious raw too, like cookie dough delicious.

Sticky Spicy Seitan

Very spicy! And so so good. I just mixed a few spices and liquids together and poured it over seitan strips and pan-fried. I make this weekly.. and it never gets old.

Oatmeal Chip Coffee Cookies

These were eh. Being the coffee lover I am, I substituted coffee extract for maple extract and the result was not as amazing as I thought. In fact. they’d probably be 10 times better without it. Oh well. I just really want to make those balsamic chocolate cookies again.

It’s way too hot outside for march… supposed to be almost 90 degrees in a couple days?? I want our 50 degree apartment back. On a better note, I did get pounds and pounds of red grapes today for 99 cents/lb, which I was super excited about.

Favorite grains

Brown rice, quinoa, irish oats, bulgar wheat

However, quinoa, pronounced keen-wa and technically a seed, is number one for a few reasons. It has a very high protein content, making it a healthful choice for vegetarians and vegans. But unlike wheat or rice, quinoa contains a balanced set of essential amino acids, making it an unusually complete protein source. Which is important! Quinoa has a pretty strong earthy taste, sort of nutty and vegetabley..? It is a delicious accompaniment to any meal, and a stellar nutritious breakfast when topped with honey or berries.

On a side note, Josh is going to see Watchmen tomorrow at midnight, leaving me here alone in our cold apartment. I’m not used to being myself, let alone at night! I would go but it’s almost four hours long and my attention span peaks at about 45 minutes. I guess I’ll snuggle up on the couch, tea in hand, computer in lap and watch a netflix movie.

I am pretty terrible at remembering my passwords. I like wordpress better than blogger anyhow.
