i cooked! and other stuff, too.

First things first: expect a mini-giveaway on the Rinse Repeat Facebook page today! So, pop over and keep an eye out. When you see it, all you have to do is comment on the photo be entered to win!

Also:

Bought this apron. C'mon, are we surprised I chose the ruffled pink one?

Made Minty Couscous Salad...would make it again. Maybe sans chickpeas, as they didn't do much for me. Overall though, deliciously bright thanks to mint and orange zest.

Tested this Easy Rice Pudding for dessert. Anyone else really dig rice pudding? It seems like a seasonal dish, but I adore it year round. This recipe would do in a cravings pinch, but it ain't like grandma's.

Driving to Minneapolis tonight to see Brian Regan, one of the few stand up comedians who doesn't give me a rash. Actually, the only one I could name at the moment. Clean topics + language, but still hilarious. And so delightfully sarcastic. Gabe and I cannot travel without quoting little bits of his routine about airports.


Happy weekend, friends! Whatcha up to?

  2. Looks great! I've only made couscous from a box, so color me impressed. While I Love Love Love to bake, I'm in the same boat when it comes to cooking. Luckily, my boyfriend is a wonderful cook, but I hate feeling like I don't carry my own weight when it comes to putting food on the table and not just adorable mini desserts and appetizers.
    I actually do freelance writing for the website Examiner.com as both a Restaurant and Food/Recipe examiner. If you're looking for some easy (and I typically try to keep the meals healthy since I love baking) recipes, check them out. I also usually try to do a lot of recipes that are good for two people, or are great leftover since I'm typically just cooking for the two of us.
    Here's a link to one of the first recipes I ever mastered, and it makes me happy that my (bit of a culinary snob) bf asks me to make it often.

  4. Oh my gosh, I'm a huge Brian Regan fan. I'm always surprised when people don't know who he is, because I've found his bits hilarious. My favorites are "Back seat, middle, with my feet on the hump!" and his spelling bee bit. So funny!

    Have fun! <3

  5. That mint couscous salad looks amazing. Funny enough, we had couscous last night and I was disappointed with how incredibly average it was, because I am a terrible cook and had no idea what to add to it. I'll have to refer to this next time. :)

    Have you ever seen the walkie-talkie bit? "It's the rootie tootie, aim and shootie!"

    Have so much fun!

  14. I adore rice pudding! I got sick last October and haven't been able to handle dairy since, so no rice pudding for me :(
