Mixed Bag Mondays: Seeking Flavor

I actually haven’t been making as many new recipes as of late. With us traveling this summer, and then getting ready for the start of the school year, I’ve been sticking with more of our regular flavors. Also, I did lots of grilling these past few months. Lots of the same marinades/recipes for that since we like them and can only get them for part of the year.

With the title mentioning flavor you might see where this picture came from…

Mixed-Bag Mondays: Mostly Fails

Here I am, not at home yet when I’m writing this, but getting excited to do cooking when I go back. I am probably remaking some recipes (like my lasagna!) but also some new ones. The risks of making new recipes are always high. Sometimes the recipes are just okay but sometimes they can turn out almost awful. Today I am sharing mostly fails…

Mixed Bag Mondays: Warm Weather Baking

There is no common theme today. Sorry. I feel like I haven’t been this tired in a long while. Basically, the Chiplet has been continuing to wake up at night, but coupling it with not great naps and waking up super early. It’s been fun. So, my brain is pretty fuzzy. But, I have still been cooking and baking a bunch, so here are some results of those efforts.

Mixed Bag Mondays: Curiously Successful

Sometimes I make recipes and want to try making them again not because they were completely satisfactory but because I am curious about how they turned out. This is a bit hard to explain, but basically the recipes are not overly complicated/weird, the end result is edible and potentially pleasant, but there is something not quite right which might require further experimentation.

Let’s start with donuts!

Mixed Bag Mondays: Unnecessary

It’s been a couple months, so it is time to share some more recipes that were just “eh.” Happily, like last time, these are mostly okay and we even enjoyed them but I doubt I would make them again for reasons I will share below.

Mixed Bag Mondays: Near Misses

I remember learning about near misses in science class and I always find it such a strange phrase. It makes sense, but it is also confusing. Maybe it’s just me. I believe I first learned it around middle school which is when I had lots of random confusing information. Such as, the word “inclement.” We learned it in a vocabulary unit but our book had the wrong pronunciation and as a result, I find it hard to remember which way is correct because both ways sound wrong now, oops.

Anyway, let’s get back to food.

Mixed Bag Mondays: Bread in 5

I will be sharing more soon…I’ve been super happy with all of the recipes I have been making from this Bread in 5 book. Basically, the premise of this book and others in the series are that you spend about 5 minutes prepping the bread dough, then you bake it later and can have fresh bread on a more regular basis.
