    Stuffed sweet potato:

    - Sweet potatoes and a small pat of butter, with a slice halfway right down the lane, wrapped in foil, in the oven for 50 minutes @ 375 degrees.

    The rest:

    - 1 onion
    - 1 package of mushrooms
    - 4 cloves of garlic
    - 1 bag leeks (approx. 2 cups)
    - 1 small box or 1/2 of a big bag of frozen broccoli florets
    - Cooking oil
    - Cooking wine (I used lemon flavored sherry)
    - Smoked paprika
    - Chicken Shwarma seasoning
    - Peri peri sauce

    Basically put oil in the pan and heat it up. Steam the broccoli in the microwave for 6 minutes covered so it's cooked and soft already. Put everything into the food processor and chop it up fine, then stick it in the pan and cook all of the water out of the mixture. When it's starting to stick to the pan and brown, use the cooking wine to boil the sticking pieces off and add flavor. Cook until that wine-like smell has evaporated a bit. Turn off the heat, season with the two seasonings. Pull the sweet potato out of the oven, pry it open, and dump a healthy spoonful of the mix into it. Top with peri peri sauce.

    True. We bought a nearly brand new treadmill and elliptical on craigslist a couple years ago this way.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I keep dreaming of opening a small not-for-profit average-joe's style gym. Basically? Find cheap/free/donated machinery to create a small gym that costs like nothing for people to go to and work out.

    Quinoa salad:

    Asian Quinoa Salad | Quinoa Salad Recipe | Two Peas & Their Pod

    I stole it from this place.. and I adapted the ingredients to what I had on hand. It came out extremely good, and people stole it and ate it all when we brought it out to an event.

    1 cup quinoa
    2 cups water
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup chopped red cabbage
    1 cup shelled and cooked edamame
    1 red bell pepper, chopped
    1/2 cup shredded carrots
    1 cup diced cucumber

    For the dressing:
    1/4 cup lite soy sauce or tamari sauce
    1 tablespoon sesame oil
    1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
    2 tablespoons chopped green onion
    1/4 cup chopped cilantro
    1 tablespoon sesame seeds
    1/4 teaspoon grated ginger
    1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    Salt and black pepper, to taste

    Mix that shit up. also, cook the quinoa in a rice cooker first.

    Turkey burgers, inspired partly by Skinnytaste's recipe.

    Put in the food processor:
    - 2 handfuls of baby carrots
    - 1 frozen mini-muffin's worth of onion
    - 2 cloves garlic
    - 1 spoonful of Sambal chili paste
    - Generous dollops of hot sauce
    - 1 spoonful of oil
    - Generous sprinkling (BBQ style) of Uncle Chris's Famous Steak Seasoning
    - Generous dollops of Worcestershire sauce

    Run that food processor until it's all mixed up or sticking to the sides.

    Then dump in a pound of ground turkey, and run it again until it's all paste-y like and well mixed.

    Put about 1/4-1/3 cup of bread crumbs and mix it by hand with a spoon until it's well incorporated. Shape into patties.

    Medium-low heat, use a decent cooking spray between patties, and 4-6 minutes on each side until the turkey meat is completely cooked through. Also you can grill this, but it's snowing outside, soo the stove top it is.

    They came out pretty damn good if I do say so myself.

    Slightly adapted but basically this recipe Zucchini "Meatballs" | Skinnytaste to fit what I have in the kitchen.

    For the meatballs:
    - 2 medium-small zucchini diced fine in a food processor.
    - 1 tsp roasted garlic
    - 1 cup italian panko
    - 1 egg
    - A sprinkling of Uncle Chris's Steak Seasoning
    - 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (I had some fancy pants stuff that goes in the fridge)
    - Salt and pepper

    I took the finely diced zucchini (nearly pulverized and muddy feeling) and fried it in a tbsp of oil until it lost a good amount of moisture. (the healthier not-as-fast way to do this is to just drain it in a colander lined with paper towel for a while with a sprinkling of salt) While I let it cool I assembled the rest of the ingredients. Mix around with your hands until well incorporated and crumbly-wet feeling. Then shape them into small meatball sized balls. Put some cooking spray onto aluminum foil on a pan, and line up the meatballs so they have a few cm between each of them for cooking space. Spray the tops of them. Pop them into the oven at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.

    They'll brown, and get a little dehydrated--which is good because they'll keep their shape. The inside is still a little moist, and so the meatballs will stand up to putting them into a sauce--like marinara.. or the sauce I made:

    - 2 heaping spoonfuls of pepper jelly
    - 1 small spoonful of jalapeno mustard
    - 1 dash worchestershire sauce
    - 1 dash ketchup
    - Pinch brown sugar

    Gently warmed in the microwave for 10 seconds, stir, and 10 seconds more.

    There is a LOT of flavor going on in those meatballs depending on what you use to make them.. italian breadcrumbs + seasoned cheese + seasoning means a lot of zesty-ness. So you can really tone down the sauce if you want.

    Cheaterchata is what we've been calling it. Fake, lazy horchata that is delicioso enough to pass until you get to the market.

    - 1 part rice milk
    - 3 parts vanilla and sweetened almond milk
    - 1/3-1 cup sugar or other sweetener depending on your sweet desires there.. you can really skip this entirely if wanted.
    - 2 cinnamon sticks + 2 tsp cinnamon
    - Optional: 1 vanilla bean, sliced length wise open

    Put all of these in a jug, and shake the jug. Let sit in the fridge overnight. Not as 'gritty' as real horchata, but just as creamy and dessert tasting. Fun fact: Horchata is super popular because a lot of central americans have lactose intolerance. Not as high as Asian populations, but it is still a pretty common thing.

    A ton of watermelon juice without a juicer:

    Cut up watermelon into big chunks and stick in the blender until blended up.
    Use a very fine-mesh strainer to strain the liquid of the pulp.
    Add in some mint leaves and chill the mixture.

    Drink it straight up, or mixed with lemonade.

    This sort of recipe is awesome because it turns something great out of something sad--mainly, getting a mealy watermelon. Sometimes markets will sell mealy watermelons cheaper too, so it's a pretty great way of making lemonade out of lemons.. so to speak.

    I don't have watermelons yet... but I'm excited for summer when they're sold for almost nothing at the market here.

    Cooked a decent spaghetti tonight, and I think I about have the formula I like down...

    If I didn't have the meatballs which have egg in them, I'd add in some ground pork to the sauce. Lots of vegetables, but the tomato still takes over everything, and the bread spices lend the majority of the flavoring vs salt.

    - Start off with San Marzano (I think that's how you spell it?) whole tomatoes, crush them and cook em slow until they turn into sauce.
    - Chopped celery, bell pepper, onion, steamed and crushed carrot, and 5 cloves of roasted garlic go into a pan with 2 tsp of canola oil, cooked until most of the liquid is out of them. Add in broccoli puree and cook until the water is mostly gone.
    - Add in Phoenicia's bread dipping spices, red pepper flakes, and parmesean cheese to the veggies, salt, pepper, and two tsp of vanilla infused sugar.
    - Mix up the tomato sauce with the veggies.
    - Boil the noodles, and spiralize zucchini into noodles and microwave for 1:30.
    - Reheat some frozen Zucchini meatballs from the freezer at 325 degrees for 15 minutes, until hot on the inside and toasty.
    - Serve with half veggie noodles, half regular noodles, meatballs, and sauce on top. Sprinkle with lemon juice.
