Had Ann over for dinner Sunday, and Abby made fancy Macaroni and Four Cheeses. I forgot to photograph it Sunday, but Monday night leftovers were delicious.

Four-Cheese Macaroni and broccoli

Abby also made fancy flourless chocolate cake that was great.

And tonight, I made pretzels! They didn’t turn out quite right (I think I need to de-gas them more and also boil them in baking soda water, I was trying for Bayrisch hard pretzels and really they’re like rolls with salt)


New Direction

This is changing directions, Little Sis is going to join in and we are going to do a bit of food blogging for cooking-lazy kids on a budget. I’m just starting out in life, and Wanna is just moving in to a house for college. This means that we are in a not-so-unique position of cooking for ourselves with not much time to be fancy and a desire to be somewhat healthy. Hopefully, by documenting some of our favorite recipes (or some of our flops), we’ll cook in greater diversity and healthier than otherwise.

I am going to try and post pictures of what AB and I cook, along with recipes as much as possible. To give a vague idea of budget constraints, we’re living in Maryland (way more expensive than the Midwest we’re used to), allocating about $85/week to groceries for 2 people. It was more expensive at the beginning, but as we stocked up on some of the staples, each week has gotten a little better.

I also hope this gives a little bit of insight into what my little sis is doing at college, since I can’t check up on her this year. :)
