Things to Cook – a Graduate Student’s Challenge


I enjoy cooking, but have to balance an intense graduate school life and a miniscule kitchen. See my working list. In the photo above, we are showing off to Mom and treating HER to a holiday meal!  I’m the one without the mask.  by Paul C.   

Crispy Baked Peanut Tofu | Minimalist Baker Recipes
CSAs are fantastic, particularly when cauliflower comes your way, as well as bok choy. And you happen to love experimenting.
ChefSteps Tips & Tricks: Fizzy Fruit
Impress my friends, or make for thanksgiving!
Chef John's Ricotta Pie Recipe
Like a cannoli, minus the frying. Make and share.
Sauerkraut in a Mason Jar
I believe I'm getting cabbage in a couple days, so I'd like to make this
Recipe: Red Lentil Soup — Weeknight Dinner Recipes from The Kitchn
Winter is coming! Also, I have red lentils that I've been meaning to use.
Easy Vegan Miso Risotto
I'm vegetarian, and although my relationship with cheese is sometimes lovely (I love me some cheddar), good parmesan is by definition not vegetarian (let alone vegan), and I really like miso. And risotto.
Fresh Creamy Cilantro Lime Chicken • Bless Her Heart Y'all
Kinda like my typical fajitas, but with cream. Well, coconut cream might work.
Harissa Lentil Quinoa Meatballs [Vegan]
This looks fun! Just need to track down a food processor...
Soup Dumplings (Xiao Long Bao)
Definitely not vegetarian. I'd like to try this with my family, and then maybe alter them to be fish-based? I dunno. I've always wanted to make this, so maybe a special occasion (like thanksgiving/Christmas) won't hurt.

If I ever get squash...
