Homemade Pretzel Dogs: No Chopping Needed!

  • Food: homemade pretzel dogs
  • Ingredients: flour, yeast, sugar, salt, baking soda, hot dogs
  • Prep Time: 1 hour
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
Having given up any facade of eating healthy, Jill and I chose a delicious, easy, and cheap meal this week: Pretzel Dogs! Pretzel dogs are my favorite food in the whole world (except for potatoes, of course). I had never attempted to make them at home before, so thank goodness Jill is an amazing baker. The dogs turned out so good that we have decided to open up a pretzel dog food truck and sell them on the mall. We should be billionaires soon enough…

Bacon and Potato Potpie: Pie Day Extravaganza!

  • Food: Bacon and Potato Potpie
  • Ingredients: bacon, potato, pie crust, cream, thyme, puff pastry, salt and pepper, swiss cheese
  • Prep time: 1 hour
  • Cook Time: 1 hour
In honor of pie day this week, Jill and I made pot pies! Jill had the idea, but there was one problem: I don’t like potpie! After a little searching, I came up with a recipe for bacon and potato potpie, and figured there was absolutely no way I could dislike it. I was right! It is impossible to create bad food out of bacon, potatoes, pie crust and cream!

Lentils and Italian Sausage

  • Food: Lentils with Italian Sausage
  • Ingredients: lentils, chicken broth, carrots, celery, shallots, italian sausage, diced tomatoes, salt, pepper, cinnamon, clove
  • Prep time: 25 minutes
  • Cook time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
After our delicious overdose of carbs and steak last week, we decided to keep this week’s meal a little healthier. So we did the unthinkable and cooked a meal that included vegetables! Right now you are probably about to close the tab and move on to another blog because you don’t believe anything with vegetables could ever taste good, but wait! It was actually tasty, I promise!!

It may look like something that's already been digested, but I promise it tasted good!

Oscars Special: Beef Wellington

  • Food: Beef Wellington
  • Ingredients: 4 cuts of beef, shallots, mushrooms, crepes, puff pastry, salt, and pepper
  • Prep time: 30 minutes
  • Cook time: 1 hour (30 minutes per part)

I promise we did not steal a picture from Wikepedia, this is OUR food!

Just in case you are unaware, this Sunday was the most important day of the year – OSCARS SUNDAY.  This Sunday beats all others.  Thats right, I claim that it is better than Super Bowl Sunday, Easter Sunday, and that rare time when your birthday falls on a Sunday – Sunday. This occasion transcends sports, religion, and birthdays – its all about the movies.

Just in case you were wondering…this is my favorite acceptance speech of all time 🙂

That would be me, except my voice would probably crack more and I would definitely be jumping the entire time!

Harira: Moroccan Spaghetti-O’s

  • Food: Harira
  • Ingredients: diced tomatoes, tomato paste, lentils, chick peas, vermicelli, flour, lemon juice, ginger, cinnamon, parsely, beef stock, salt and pepper
  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 1 hour

We got exotic this week, and attempted to make one of Jill’s favorite dished from her study abroad trip to Morocco. We also had a special guest cook: Renee from Renee’s Kitchen! You can read her version of the events over at her blog.

Harira is a yummy tomato based-soup that actually tastes nothing like Spaghetti-O’s. It was surprisingly easy to make and turned out flavorful and filling.

Look, garnishes! We are fancy food photographers now.

Super Bowl Chili Fail…

  • Food: Chili
  • Ingredients: Lots of tomatoes (sauce, paste, and crushed whole), beef, kidney beans, chili powder, salt
  • Prep time: 1 hour
  • Cook time: 6 hours

I don’t know if any of you were aware of this, but last weekend was the Super Bowl.  I try to get together with friends and watch the game every year.  And by watch the game, I do in fact mean eat lots of crappy game food and hang out while the tv is on in the background.

Yup, I'm not even going to pretend I know this person's name...go Football!

This years game was fantastic.  My roommate Bob threw an awesome party with some fantastic food (seriously it was fancy game food this year!!).  Kelly and I decided that we needed some classic Superbowl food that everyone would love – and who doesn’t love a good hearty chili!?
