Homemade Ramen

I have been hiding this one for a while. Homemade ramen. Yes, I said it. HOMEMADE RAMEN. This is not for the instant ramen fans, or the “I want ramen to make some”. No, this ramen took Kodi and I, a solid 3 days to figure out. Trial and error, add more water, boil it…

Easy Roast Veggies

Roast veggies are something I love to do all the time. They are fast to prepare, set and forget (well not really) and they go with everything. I made these to go with a Sunday roast chicken and used the leftovers to add to my salads during the week.  The Trick with these is to…

Lentil Spaghetti and “meatballs”

For some reason, about 4 cans of canned lentils have ended up in my pantry. How? I am not even sure myself, but as my new year’s resolution has been to cut down on food waste, I had to figure out something to do with them. I have been researching and nothing came as an…
