Dinner is Served!

I've found the perfect way to procrastinate homework! COOKING!!!! Yay!

Again I turned to my new friend Super Cook and today's result is Double-Baked Broccoli Cheese Potatoes :D

So simple I didn't really measure anything
you need:
  • potatoes
  • milk
  • cheese
  • garlic salt (optional) **Garlic salt happens to be my favorite spice**
  • pepper
  • broccoli
  • butter
First bake the potatoes: clean them and poke holes and then make a small/shallow cut all the way around so that it's easier to cut them in half later, don't cut too deep as it will make the guts kind of.... hard. then either bake them in the oven or if you're impatient like me use the microwave.

while that's going on mix a little milk; roughly 1/3 c per 2 potatoes, two dollops of butter (hey, I didn't say this was a healthy meal :P ), finely chopped broccoli; about a stem per potato, 1/3c of cheese, pepper and other seasonings to taste.

when the potatoes are done baking carefully cut them in half and scoop the guts in with the cheese and broccoli mix and mash mash mash! once it's mixed scoop it back into the potato skins.

Place in the oven at 350 for about 15 min and enjoy!

and I really do mean enjoy, I loved them! plus they're totally affordable on a college budget, yay for starving student meals outside of top ramen!!!

Cooking! YAY!

Ok so I was bored and my class got canceled so I naturally decided to cook something, but alas, I had no idea what to cook so I turned to Google :D Happy 40th Anniversary Sesame Street BTW

Anyways I found a cool website called: Super Cook (www.supercook.com)
You tell the recipe engine what ingredients you have and it pulls up recipes with only those ingredients! Kinda fun :)

I came across Dutch Babies, read the instructions; looked easy enough, turned on some Owl City and set to work.

You need:
Preheat your oven to 425 and while you're waiting mix the salt, milk and flour until smooth.

add the sugar and eggs one at a time until each is blended well.

when the oven is warm melt the butter in your pan and when the butter is melted pour in the batter. Now you wait 25 min:
I literally sat on my kitchen floor looking through the oven door as my Dutch Babies baked, I'm such a little kid!
Once they finished I quickly opened the oven door only to get a blast of heat to the face and had to wait for the fog on my glasses to clear.
This is the result ^

after adding a little syrup the vote is in: I will certainly make these again and Griff will get to taste them :) plus they have the Carbs for quick energy and protein for muscle recovery (pretty much every meal includes chicken in one form or another for Griff).

Overall I would cook them for about 20 min and possibly use a smaller pan.
