Flour Bakery’s Japanese Cotton Cheesecake

I kept seeing airy cheesecakes that were super fluffy and I finally decided to try making one. It was easier than I thought and turned out well!

Mixed-Bag Mondays: Mostly Hits

I am always happy when recipes turn out well, but sometimes they are still not worth remaking, or I know I just am not likely to remake them. Today, I am sharing some of those.

Let’s start off with something I seem to share a bunch on here: biscuits.

Tips-y Tuesdays: Simple Egg Quiche

I’ve been making so many breakfast foods lately…waffles, pancakes, eggs, and so on. Whenever I can mix it up a bit, but still keep it easy, I am happy. I am making this a tips post instead of a recipe just because I don’t have a full recipe to show you.

What did I do?

Fish (Tilapia) Tacos

Now you could certainly make these tacos with other fish, but again, pandemic things. We haven’t been able to buy our normal fresh fish this summer. Usually I am getting lots of salmon from the store and grilling it. This year, we are getting our fish fix with frozen shrimp and frozen fish fillets. I normally don’t buy tilapia because I prefer non-farm fish, but I can’t be as picky right now. So, when I found a bag of reasonably-priced frozen tilapia fillets, I bought it. I was going to make different things with them, but each time I ended up wanting them for fish tacos. It’s so easy and fast.

Easy Creamy Dill Dip

Let’s start off this week with a super easy recipe. We like to get fancy burgers from a local restaurant here, but the Chiplet gets chicken strips instead because he prefers them. I don’t mind, because the chicken strips come with a dip that is some sort of buttermilk/ranch kind of flavor and it is amazing with the chicken, but also with fries, or any fried foods. I wanted to try to make something similar. I actually had buttermilk on hand and was planning on using it, but then I forgot and used it to make pancakes. Oops. Well, it turns out that I didn’t need it. I might still try using buttermilk instead of milk in the future, but let’s say you don’t have it, this was still good. Now, I don’t always have sour cream on hand, but I might need to start.
