Typically when you think of French toast, you think of caramelized cinnamon sugar goodness. Right? Well, I hate to break it to you, but French toast is as good when you make it savory, and it’s one of my favorite meals to make. Brunch? Lunch? Dinner? You name it, it works.
After posting my orange whiskey sour on the blog, I very quickly learned something: ya’ll like to drink! That cocktail recipe is probably one of my most popular on the blog right now, and since posting it I’ve had numerous people reach out to me about making more simple cocktail recipes. One person even asked for a spring cocktail that would be great for Easter, so I figured I would make one of my favorites: heavenly lemonade!
Does anyone else have something they’ve just been throwing themselves at lately? I seriously can’t stop cooking. I mean, I love to cook, and I do it often. But last week I developed nine recipes for this blog. NINE. Guys, I usually do one a weekend. Apparently I have all this built up energy from not doing things in the outside world, and making new food has fueled my creativity. Gnocchi was the first one, so here’s number two: shakshuka!
I have been completely overwhelmed by news of the pandemic lately. Anyone else? It probably doesn’t help that I actually work in journalism, but still, I needed a break. So teaching a class on how to make gnocchi online seemed like a way to blow off steam. I called it “Cooking with Kes” and wow, what a blast we had.
I’ve shared a rendition of this recipe in a lot of places. It’s in my e-book “Easy Eats” (which you can buy here), and was also one of my first featured recipes on Eat This, Not That!, but it felt strange to not have it on my website where I could easily refer it. So here we are—the simplest peanut butter overnight oats for your meal prep.
Cooking for one (or two) seems impossible when all of the recipes online are typically for four servings or more. Want to know my little secret? Any meal can be made a meal for one—you just don’t have to cook as many meals for yourself. So when prepping a meal, say like this cottage cheese lasagna, you bake a pan of it and eat it for dinners throughout the week. Easy, peasy.
