Freshly made batch of pazcki. Ingredients 3/4 cup milk 1/2 cup sugar 1 envelope yeast 3 egg yolks 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1 Tablespoon grated […]

Paczki

Today is Pazcki day, which is basically a jelly donuts eaten by the Polish before Lent. I have made them before, but not for a few years. It’s a very time intensive and daunting process. This year, I made the dough the night before and then fried them up the morning of. It worked out […]

Fermentation

So apparently there is a new seasons of┬áChef’s Table out on Netflix. Ellie and I really love this show. It’s fascinating to see how chefs from all over the world approach food. Often, they have very similar approaches and that usually means finding a way to modernize their country’s traditional dishes and prove it can […]

Changing Diet

In the past six months, my diet has been overhauled for the better.im finally eating the way I have always wanted to eat, but usually made the excuse that it was too expensive to do so. Don’t get me wrong, I still eat tasty and crappy foods, I just consider the food I eat to […]

Dinner Last Night

Wasn’t great. Sometimes, I get a great idea of what to make for dinner but the execution ends up being off for some reason or another. Last night, I made a coconut chicken curry soup. I thought no it could have been good, but I used cream of coconut instead of coconut milk. The cream […]

Daydreaming

Sometimes I wonder if I really missed my calling in life. Most of my day is centered around emailing and de elopement and other tech related things but my mind wanders to what I’m cooking for dinner. Like a ton of my resting mind thinks about food. Yesterday a co-worker of mine mentioned she tried […]

Sausage

Bland?

Every day, I wake up and go for a walk, shower, and then get ready for work. I make a sandwich for lunch, oat bread with three slices of turkey, three slices of Wauwewaga sharp cheddar cheese, and a spread of Mayo on one slice. I wrap that up and put it in my lunch […]

Cat Feeding

I love that when I wake up in the morning, there’s a cat sitting on my chest, waiting to be fed. I love that she sits in between the shower curtains while I shower, waiting to be fed. I love that once she’s fed, she purrs. I really love that once she’s fed, she still […]

Body Fat

I’m getting older. I’m not old, but I’m older than I was and it’s starting to show. For years, I’ve not really had a problem with my hair graying. In fact, I’m looking forward to it. I’m not sure why exactly, but I think I’d look good with it. Today, however, I’m not concerned with […]
