Hola! Once again, I am back from a long hiatus… Truth is I recently got back from Mexico, and then there was St Patrick’s Day, and then I ran a half-marathon, and overall I’ve just had so many pre-graduation things to do that my blog has been slipping through the cracks of my schedule. But all good things come to those who wait and so I finally picked up the slack and took a 30 minute break today to share this post with you. Continue reading “Breakfast Burrito Bowl of Champions”
For this final edition of my sweet potato series, I decided I’d make a quick stop to Asia and incorporate the last third of my potato into a delicious noodle soup. Since I hadn’t roasted it earlier, I figured I’d switch it up a bit and boil it instead. Now the thing is that boiled potatoes usually taste quite bland.

Another week, and two other sweet potato recipes to come! Using the second third of my *gigantic* spud, I chose to make some delicious Sweet Potato-Spinach-Millet patties.

A few weeks ago, I took a great cooking class at school! Not only was I extremely happy to learn new recipes, but I also loved the idea of cooking at school. Unfortunately, we can’t ordinarily take cooking classes here. Wouldn’t it be amazing to bake a cake, grill a steak, or poach an egg for credit? I certainly would love to! And I truly believe that cooking is a lifelong skill that should be taught like sciences.
