Mostly homemade pumpkin pie

Pumpkin pie, truly the reason for the season.

Other than the crust, everything is made from scratch! Including the whipped cream.


Oven sheet omelette

Cooked something worth blogging about, if only because it’s so easy.

Ingredients

  • Ground beef (cooked and seasoned)
  • 3 small potatoes
  • A dozen eggs
  • An onion
  • Cheese

Recipe

  • Preheat oven to 425℉
  • Slice the potatoes thinly (I used a food processor)
  • Pre-cook the potatoes for 5 minutes in the microwave
  • Spray a deep oven sheet
  • Put down a layer of potatoes and onions, then the beef
  • Pour eggs over the whole thing
  • Bake for 10 minutes
  • Slice and server

In progress, we have everything ready to go in the oven:


Cheesy chicken a la slow cooker

To continue our weekend of cooking, we tried a recipe from the slow cooker recipie book I got for Christmas (or maybe my birthday, I don’t actually remember which): four ingredient cheesy chicken!


Popcorn chicken

We cooked something new this weekend (or at least something I don’t think I’ve blogged about it before), so I figured I should dust off this category and post something for once. What did we make? Popcorn chicken!


Pizza omelette

Want to make a pizza but don’t have a crust?

Bam:

Pizza omelette.


Tortilla espanola

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any cooking, so I figured why not have something new. This time, we decided to make a tortilla–and not the Mexican sort (although that would be interesting to try some time), but rather the Spanish sort. Instead of a floury disk of tastiness, we have potatoes and eggs (also of tastiness).


Umm... soup?

Half on a bet, we made two dishes this weekend with only a single difference: the sauce. The original goal was to make Indian and Mexian, but the Kroger where we picked up supplies this time around doesn’t have the same selection of Indian sauces. So instead we went with Chinese. Turns out, that was a really interesting decision… 😄


Chicken and tomatoes

Today we have one of those simple recipes when you’re short on prep time but still want something delicious.

You’ll need:

  • chicken
  • rice
  • tomatoes
  • herbs and spices (we used basil and oregano)
  • olive oil


Portobello pizzas!

Love pizza but concerned with the number of calories in the standard pizza crust? Why not make portobello pizzas! it’s just like a pizza except you use a mushroom instead of the crust. (Disclaimer: If you don’t like mushrooms in the first place, this *probably* isn’t the best idea for you…)

You’ll need:

  • portobello mushrooms
  • pizza sauce
  • cheese
  • other pizza toppings
