Key Lime Pie Milkshakes

You know how I’m always going on about recipes that are so easy, they’re impossible to screw up? Well. I think I might have to go back on my word, because I have done the inevitable. I have screwed up Kraft Dinner.

We all know distracted driving is extremely dangerous, and I think distracted cooking might be venturing into that dangerous territory. I was just on the phone with my mom and managed to make two major mistakes in the KD process. Instead of boiling the water first, I dumped the pasta into a pot of cold water, and then left it on the stove where, not long afterwards, saw out of the corner of my eye the white foamy volcano on top of the pot that can only indicate one thing: the pot had boiled over.

As I type this, I’m snacking on a bowl of KD, so I guess it all worked out in the end. But I would like to say, if you make mistakes I did, know you are not the only one. I am the king of distracted cooking (I once nearly started a kitchen fire).

Brown Sugar Curry Chicken Wings

Things that happened while making these chicken wings: I separated chicken wings for the first time, leaving me to resort to a high-pitched squeal every time I sliced through bone (former vegetarian, here) I whined “THIS IS DISGUSTING!” like, 5 billion times My partner (eyes rolling at my squeals, probably) found a YouTube video of…

No-Bake Boozy Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake

Are you an indoors or an outdoors person? I used to consider myself firmly in the outdoors camp, but I think that may have changed after last weekend. I went out to a music festival just outside the city and it was a mostly miserable experience, thanks to heavy rain. I guess I am a…

No-Churn Reese Puffs Ice Cream

Tonight I’m heading out to a small music festival and I couldn’t be more excited. Last summer was actually the first year that I had ever been to a music festival that involved camping and staying overnight. As someone who is quite introverted, I was so nervous about going to a large place with tons of people…

Pizza Hash Browns

Pizza hash browns. Pizza. Hash. Browns. Pizza hash browns!!! I considered just leaving it at that but my fingers wouldn’t stop typing (read: I’m a chatterbox) so there’s some words before this recipe. You know those small things you discover upon moving out for the first time? Those things that feel weirdly adult and grown…

Frozen Chocolate Coconut Fudge Pie

A hilarious coworker of mine coined the term “fear of restaurants” to describe this kind of customer. It’s the person who wants the salad with the dressing on the side, peppers instead of tomatoes, a big fork instead of a small one, etc. etc. I will admit that I have been this person at one…

Cheddar Bacon Popcorn via @mydishisbomb

Cheddar Bacon Popcorn

Food scents inspire strong emotions, differing from person to person. I remember one Christmas morning, my little sister, my uncle and I devised a plan to wake up my parents as they decided to “sleep in” (it was probably 6 a.m. but this certainly felt like “sleeping in” to an eight-year-old on Christmas morning). We…
