    Hot chocolate is the best when we are sick... It can never go wrong, and we can even trow in a few marshmallows.:popcorn:

    lol, they are amazing.

    I just made breakfast, I had planned on it just being the maruchan yakisoba. I ended up going gourmet. I am now sitting here with egg fried yakisoba with portabello mushrooms.

    Made a veggie noodle stir fry with chicken tonight... Nappa, Korean Mustard Greens, carrots, green onions.... lots of love
    Chicken was marinated with Gochujang, sesame oil, soy sauce, minced garlic, minced ginger, and vinegar (Didn't have chinese rice cooking wine or else I'd have used that)... AMAZING

    @Saltwater Croc Have you ever tried edamame noodles? I've taken a liking to them. They have 25g of protein. Aww, yis.

    Anyway. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day and I realize I don't think I've shown any of my breakfasts. They usually have eggs involved. Eggs are nothing short of obsession to me. Below there is a sweet potato hash and a teriyaki tofu with a chop salad. I love having vegetables with my breakfast!

    Woah, I haven't posted much of my cooking lately! I think it's time to change that a bit. Here are a few of my recent favorites. A vegetable and noodle curry that I made with those edamame noodles I was talking about. Also, this cake is actually a flourless protein powder recipe and also uses zucchini puree. Topped with chia seed jam and fresh fruit. So, protein? Check! Fruits and vegetables? Check! AND CHOCOLATE? Woah, this is a winner, winner.

    • 1 scoop unflavored protein powder (except whey, I tried this for Nick and every time I try to apply heat to whey protein, bad stuff happens)
    • 2 TBSP cocoa powder
    • ¼ tsp baking powder
    • pinch of salt
    • ¼ cup of any granulated sweetener you prefer
    • ½ TBSP of any mildly flavored oil (such as grapeseed or canola)
    • ½ cup zucchini puree (zucchini and a couple TBSP of water blended together)
    • ¼ cup almond milk (or whatever milk you use)
    • dash of vanilla extract
    Bake on 350F for about 20 minutes, once the middle has set. Since it's flourless, it won't "set-up" nearly as much as a normal cake, but it does get sufficiently cakey. It keeps kind of a mousse-y texture. Flourless cake has pretty much been a thing for a long time from what I can see, so I'd probably Google up a recipe for a non-protein powder one for proper cake reasons. XD

    <3 Thank you as always! I think I have vanilla protein powder. I'm wondering if it would taste okay to use that and omit the cocoa powder, for a vanilla cake. Hmmm, I think experiments are in order. :D

    Let me know how it turns out! This was an absolute experiment of mine and I was pleased with the results, but I imagine since everyone has such different protein powders that results could vary. If your powder is sweetened and can omit the sweetener, you'd probably have to adjust the wet ingredients.

    I'm baking some huge chicken breasts. I've never done this before. I'm usually a beef person.

    I'm already making a mess because I put the chicken on an aerated pizza pan.

    :kaoback:

    I'll post again later how they turn out.

    Oh goodness, yes, sounds like you will have a mess in your oven - watch that it doesn't catch fire.

    Also, a tip for large chicken breasts - it helps a whole lot if you butterfly them first. They cook a lot more evenly and in less time.

    Instructions said 30 minutes, and I did 50 minutes. They still look kinda pink to me.

    EDIT: Yep. Back in the oven they go. I like my chicken moist, but not gooey.

    EDIT/EDIT: @mlogan Yeah, I put down tin foil when I noticed they were dripping. These actually turned out really delicious. :kaoluv: It just took about twice as long because I have a tiny little bachelor oven.

    @mogwai Raw chicken is my nightmare fuel. Sounds like you got it figured out now, though. XD

    So, who else is ready for summer food? I started a little bit early.

    Soon, I will have my 15th anniversary of graduating high school, if it is warm enough I might try grilling out.

    Did someone say Cheesecake?

    I make Cheesecake! Maybe I'll share some pictures if anyone is interested.

    I have made plain cheesecake, chocolate cheesecake, chocolate chip cheesecake, German chocolate cheesecake, Candy corn cheescake, Maple pecan cheesecake, Peppermint cheesecake and a chocolate cheesecake with chocolate cake layers covered with a candy coated like icing.


    I've made other things from scratch like Cookies, Brownies, lemon bars, Pies, chocolate haystacks. I love the challenge of making something new!

    I can't find my chocolate chip cheesecake. This make me mad.

    Also your cheesecake looks very interesting.

    It is mascarpone cheesecake. 16 ounces of cream cheese, 8 ounces of cool whip, 8 ounces of mascarpone cheese, half a cup of orange juice. I made it in a store bought graham cracker pie crust but I have also made it in a spring form pan and made my own crust. Can't remember how long I cooked it for. Think I put it in for 30 minutes but that was too long as you can see it split. 20 minutes would be better.
