Mushroom Herb Gravy and Car Shopping

Holy fuck you guys. I bought a new car just in the nick of time. It’s a fucking winter wonderland out there, and I am fully prepared with a car that has working heat (and a fully functional engine that doesn’t threaten to stop at any given moment). Hallelujah! I bought a purple Honda Fit,… Continue reading Mushroom Herb Gravy and Car Shopping

Vegetarian Stuffing

I spent my Thanksgiving watching the parade, drinking champagne, playing Sorry, drinking more champagne, cooking awesome food, eating awesome food, and oh, did I mention drinking champagne? And then we ended it with cake! Best. Day. Ever. And I fucking cooked Thanksgiving dinner. I mean, minus the turkey, obviously. But still! It was a success.… Continue reading Vegetarian Stuffing

Gingerbread Cake for Thanksgiving

  This is my very first Thanksgiving without my mom. She’s not dead or anything – she just opted to stay in Florida. Who the hell could blame her? Sunny beaches and no one demanding anything? Fuck yes. I totally fucking get it. But now I don’t have a Thanksgiving meal being cooked for me.… Continue reading Gingerbread Cake for Thanksgiving

And it was nice to have something fairly easy/fool-proof to cook on election night, when my anxiety was peaking,… Continue reading Election Night Anxiety Cooking

Eva’s Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

I’m constantly trying to be healthier. This is contradicted by my excessive cookie and donut consumption (not to mention my drinking), but I do the best I can (no I don’t). I have developed this habit of eating snacks instead of meals lately. I don’t know how this happened… I’ve never been the type of… Continue reading Eva’s Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Pinto Bean Burgers

It all started with a craving for a cheeseburger. There is no meat in my apartment because I’m practicing cooking without it, plus I’m on a budget. Meat is expensive. Beans are cheap as shit. My burger craving was getting out of hand, I was running out of food at home, and was very worried… Continue reading Pinto Bean Burgers
