I love fresh baked bread. There is just something about the smell of baking bread that takes a person home. Even though we didn’t bake bread much when I was growing up, I think the smell just makes any place feel like home. After mastering focaccia bread, I have been feeling confident in my bread baking abilities, so I decided to move on to another, more complicated Italian bread: chibatta.

There has been a bottle of tequila sitting on my fridge for about 3 months now with just about 2ish shots left in it. I am not a tequila drinker that often, and I honestly can’t remember why I bought it in the first place, but it has slowly been emptied whenever I get in the mood for a margarita. This week though I had a coupon of $2 off a seafood purchase at the store and since $2 worth of shrimp is just right for one person, I figured it was time to make a recipe that I have been wanting to try for a long time. I am calling this dish “Saucy Shrimp”, but it really is a tequila lime shrimp pasta, but does the title really matter? A rose by any other name…

Mexican Rice and added some corn and green onion to it for some added freshness. It was a perfect, quick meal that took my mind off the world at large and the things that have been making my life complicated in recent days. Enjoy!

this recipe on Pinterest and decided to spend a night and modify it into some kind of pizza roll-up with tasty fresh ingredients. Apparently though, Astoria grocery stores do not believe in egg roll wrappers so I had to go with plan B: phyllo dough. Not a big deal, nothing is better then improvising in the kitchen, some of my favorite meals have come from cooking this way. Not only was I feeling adventurous, but it was the Civil War basketball game and I knew I wanted some kind of finger food to enjoy while watching the game.

AllRecipies. It called for chicken to be marinated in a curry yogurt sauce and then breaded and fried in butter. Sounded good but it seemed so heavy and I knew if there was a way to lighten it up I could find it.
