Red Beans and Coconut Rice
A really quick, cheap, and simple recipe I made for dinner tonight because we’re on a budget. It came out pretty delicious and fragrant. I added baked chicken to give it more protein but instead you could add a second can of beans if you prefer. :] Ingredients: 1 can unsweetened coconut milk 1-2 cans red kidney beans 3 cups cooked white rice (tip: 1 cup uncooked makes 3 cups cooked in...
(Fried) Spam Musubis
Spam musubis are pretty much a daily thing where I live. They’re cheap (spam, rice, seaweed), they’re tasty & salty, and they’re real easy to make. If you don’t have a musubi mold, you can make a ghetto one like we did by cutting the bottom off of a spam can! Ingredients: 2 cans of Spam! If you’re not from Hawaii you can probably find it in camping food...
I’m making apple strudels for my German101 class tomorrow because we’re having a end of the semester party and we have to bring something to eat.

Ingredients: 3 regular sized apples chopped into small (maybe 1/4...

Ingredients: 2/3 cup sugar 1/3 cup butter 1 cup dark corn syrup 1/2 tsp...
If you’ve ever seen the Pixar movie Ratatouille, you know where this recipe is from. Its really healthy, super flavorful, and pretty easy to make.

Ingredients: 2 tbsp olive oil 4 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped up 1 eggplant, sliced 2 bell peppers, sliced 1 onion,...
