deliciousness as of late

No, I don't have that food blog up and running yet. Personally, I don't think a food blog is quite the same without pictures. And I don't got no camera.

However, I still have this here blog, and I can still put up my faaavorite recipes. I've been cookin' up a storm all semester, you know.

Some things that I make all the time:

"Bad Breath" Salad-yep, I named this one, but that's because the ingredients are simply black/white beans, feta cheese, red wine vinegar, dry basil, tomatoes, cilantro, and red onions. Try getting a smooch from your luvah after eating this one.

Spiced Butternut Squash Soup-I actually just ate this one for lunch. With some of these deeericious applesauce oat muffins. Try it for an easy Sunday dinner. Or whenever dinner. It's just good, okay?

One-Bowl Brownies-according to one recent taster, these were "the most delicious brownie specimens in the history of brownies." Uh-huh. Direct quote, people.

Bacon-Egg Tomato Sandwich-a Kenzie creation, which is basically one piece of whole grain toast, a little bit of whipped cream cheese, a few f.a.t. slices of tomato, two slices of bacon, and a fried egg w/ fresh rosemary and thyme cooked on top. Oops, I just drooled on the keyboard.

Famous Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies-if you want success in life, all you have to do is make these cookies. 2 boxes of spice cake mix, 1 big can of pumpkin, and 1 bag of chocolate chips, bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.

Cure-All Smoothie-1 C. milk, 1/2 C. Greek or plain yogurt, frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, 1 frozen banana, flaxseed, drizzle of honey or agave

Chicken & Black Bean Tacos-I made this one up on the spot last night. I also accidentally added cinnamon to it (chili powder looks like cinnamon, ok) but it still worked! Chop 1/2 red pepper, 1/2 onion, saute in olive oil with chili powder, cumin, and a pinch of cinnamon if you're feeling adventurous. Then add a can of black beans and some chicken breast, cut into strips. This would've probably been even more yummy if I had marinated the chicken before. Then you warm up corn tortillas directly on the burner until brownish, throw the chicken mixture on top, sprinkle with avocado, salsa, and cilantro. DELISH! I made this for breakfast the other day, too, but I took out chicken and added eggs, and I didn't add the spices.

Spinach and Zucchini Pasta-cook whole wheat pasta, saute zucchini and spinach in olive oil with a pinch of red pepper flakes and Italian seasoning. Add your favorite tomato sauce and put it on top of the pasta. Sprinkle with fresh parmesan. Yes, it must be fresh for the sake of your taste buds.

Turkey Chili & Cornbread-I LOVE this turkey chili recipe and it makes a TON. Also, this cornbread recipe is super good and it's from my gluten-free days. Usually I've found that cornbread is crumbly and dry, but these muffins hold together really well and they are moist. YUMMERS.

I guess that's all for now. But I'll be back with mucho mas sabroso foods!

love, kenzie

I want a Kenzy Kooks class. These sound so much more adventureous than my college foods.

Yum. I agree with Terri- that's some fine college cuisine.
