Vegetarian Cheeseburger Pizza

Sometimes… I just really want a cheeseburger. A pure, simple, McDonald’s $1 meal cheeseburger. No frills. No black beans.

When I was younger, one of my favorite foods was the Orange Chicken from Panda Express.

Cuban Beans

Most of the recipes on Noms for Noobs were created by either Mel or I; this recipe is one of the exceptions. These beans….Oh my God…these beans. A friend of ours took a trip to Cuba once and watched these beans being made by a petite abuelita with a gray bun and work worn hands. She…

Curried Lentil Soup

This delicious Curried Lentil Soup, like many of our kitchen concoctions, was born out of the struggle between wanting to eat a tasty home-cooked meal and feeling too lazy to brave the journey to the grocery store. Most of the ingredients are items that Cass & I keep stocked regularly (*cough* LENTILS *cough*) combined with savory spices and…
