Homemade Miso Ramen with Chicken

If you've had the chance to have Japanese-style ramen, then you probably haven't been able to put off satiating that craving ever since.

Green Curry with Chicken, Bell Pepper, and Potato

School is now in session. I have one more year with a hanging-on semester. I like to think of it like that so that it doesn't seem too far out. But who am I kidding? It really does seem like a far distance away. I am eager to just jump into work full time since I am in love with my new job. School seems so pale in comparison. I've also been really lucky lately with the people around me. They're my role models of sorts, and asking for their advice, or getting a book recommendation from them, seems so much more beneficial than a classroom setting.

Matcha Green Tea Drizzle Cake

Although I adore hearts and chocolate, this year for Valentine's I'm going for a non-traditional dessert. I wanted something light in texture, with more of a technical process so that I could have fun while baking. Since I typically don't peruse the dessert section in my cookbooks, it was a great excuse to research. I came across this recipe in Wagamama, and I couldn't help but want it. Green tea, especially matcha, has a special place in my heart. I don't know why I love it so much, but it makes me happy. So I gave it a go. Unlike my last post about cutting down the sugar content from my baked goods, this one has a standard amount of sugar, but it's Valentine's right? So why not splurge a little.

Blueberry Power Muffins

During the winter I love to bake, but don't really like all of the over-sugary desserts. Lately I've been trying to sub in healthier ingredients to give my baked goods an extra touch of goodness. With these Blueberry Power Muffins, I started with a fabulous recipe from Damn Delicious (a really great food blog if you haven't checked her out yet), then added a few of my favorite things. The extra goodies include flaxseed, walnuts, and I used white whole wheat instead of regular all purpose flour.
