This is a recipe from my friend, B. This acorn squash is very light and serves as a great change from the traditional heaps of brown sugar and marshmallow mix. This is sweet, yet not overwhelming.

This was a failed experience of sorts. I’ve tried in the past to make Pad Thai, and there was just something missing. So when my friend B tried the following recipe with a good review, I figured that I try it myself. Part of the problem, for me, was the fish oil. I figured that maybe fish oil was as essential to Pad Thai as beef broth is to French Onion Soup. Instead, I just made myself sick from smelling fish oil and remembering every reason why I don’t eat fish and protest fellow “vegetarians” who do.
Jason, being the omnivore in the house, did like this recipe. Which is good as he had to finish cooking it and eat it.

This was a meal that I sliced and diced together. Or maybe pasted in a better word: Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce recipe, Tex Asian BBQ Tofu recipe (my recipe so does not look like Chef Erik’s picture as I rather just used the frying instructions), and Honey BBQ Sauce recipe I’m not a big fan of bbq sauce and neither is Jason, so I had to resort to making my own. This is a true what’s in the fridge today meal.

Jason and I both love Indian food, so I’ve made it a goal to better learn how to cook it. I tried a recipe for Cauliflower, Potato, and Pea Curry, minus the peas because I’m allergic to them.
Overall, we enjoyed it, but thought it could be a little spicier. The recipe is relatively simple and quick to make. Serve with rice.

I bought a French Fry maker kit. (Yes, I make French Fries, not Freedom Fries.) It works to a varying degree, but I still got delicious fries out the gig. In fact, I should actually call this Cooking with Jason as I was cooking our actual dinner while he was frying fries. Delicious!

Also for Jason’s birthday, I broke down and made a cake. I almost ended up not making it when I knocked my mixer’s large glass bowl off the counter and it crashed on the floor, breaking into a thousand pieces. I guess it was better that I didn’t have anything in the mixer yet…
This cake came out really well. It’s very moist and delicious. The original recipe is from Favorite Brand Name’s Cake Mix.
