Quiche!

I’m making quiche! I’m so excited right now. My mom always makes a quiche when I come home and it is probably my favorite breakfast food.
I’ve had a plan to make one for a long time and I’m finally doing it! (I feel like I have been using that phrase a lot in these posts, but I guess that makes sense because I have been doing a lot of things lately.)

Lots of yummy bacon, onion and spinach covered in egg and cheese.

It’s in the oven right now and I hope it comes out well. Yay for cooking!

Baking Gone Wrong

So the recipe said bake at 350 for 60 minutes which I somehow read as 450 for 60 minutes. Thank God I was checking it every 10 minutes or so. When I saw how quickly it was baking I though to myself “this is weird, let me check the temperature in the recipe again”. 350!
I called my mom so she could tell me how to fix it.
I hope it still turns out alright. But I’ll be double checking every recipe from now until the end of time.

Cinnamon Rolls

I love cinnamon; it is probably my favorite flavor (and smell). Cinnamon rolls are the way to my heart, specifically Cinnabon rolls. Bring me one of those babies and I will love you forever.

I’ve been wanting to make my own homemade cinnamon rolls for a while now but I have been too lazy to do so yet. I don’t really have anything else to do for the moment though so I might very well bake them in the next couple weeks. Just imagine how great the house would smell! That is definitely a huge motivation for me.

Today I took the easy way out and bought a roll of Pillsbury Cinnabon rolls and popped them in the oven. The house still smells wonderful and they taste great but there is no substitute for original Cinnabon or made from scratch.

Cooking Day

I have had a pound of ground turkey sitting in my freezer for a few months now. Today I finally used it. I made mozzarella stuffed meatballs (you can find the recipe I used here http://bakerbynature.com/30-minute-mozzarella-stuffed-turkey-meatballs-with-homemade-marinara/). They ended up tasting really good, but could have used more salt, which was a bit disappointing. I’ve been cooking a lot more than I usually do and I’m really enjoying it. It is a very satisfying feeling when you take a pan of something out of the oven that you made yourself. Even if the dish does not turn out exactly how you think it was going to, it still feels good because you know you put the effort into it (and there’s always the next time). Trial and error baby.

Baking is something I would like to start doing more though. Brownies and cookies and banana bread and Carmelitas and blueberry muffins and lots of other chocolate things preferably. Pinterest is my favorite site of all time and I have tons of food pins that range from crockpot recipes to homemade Cinnabon cinnamon rolls. Speaking of which….cinnamon rolls are at the top of my list of things to bake. The best part about baking (for me at least) is the smell of whatever it is that’s baking, while it is baking. I should stop saying baking… But anyway, the smell of cookies or brownies or whatever, is so amazing, almost better than actually eating them, but not quite ;).

Now I am seriously craving chocolate so I’m gonna grab some ice-cream. Ta-ta for now!
