Things I've Cooked this Winter

-Baked salmon with red peppers in a cilantro, sriracha, peanut butter chili sauce.  Pretty good!

I got this recipe here.  In lieu of PB Co. peanut butter, I used peanut flour from Trader Joe's, which has about as 1/4 as many calories as peanut butter as the fatty oils have been dehydrated from it.  Would it have tasted better with regular peanut butter?  Oh for sure, but then you'd have more calories on your hands.  And by hands I mean stomach.

-Coffee Biscuits: Sounds fun, right?  I made these for the first time for a party.  Because I didn't pay attention to the ingredient list, I neglected to realize that these were actually going to be cookies.  Fucking British people* with their silly terms for things.  So next time, I'm going to get a regular ol' fluffy biscuit recipe and just add powdered instant coffee to it and see how that goes.

-For breakfast the other morning, I threw something together from the random elements at my disposal and came up with a coconut milk french-toasted parma loaf from SCRATCHBread with grilled zucchini and eggplant, morbier cheese, cilantro, Peter Luger Steak Sauce, and sriracha:

Wow, sorry about that.  I was in such a rush to eat it I guess. :D
It was quite the yum bucket of a breakfast.

-Trader Joe's Mandarin Orange Chicken on Challah bread with kumato tomatoes, cilantro, and a sriracha sesame oil mayo:

If I had a Mac Book Pro already, this would be so much better.
It was freaking delicious.

*Yes, yes I know, etymology and the rest of the world is on their side.  Also, I actually can't help automatically liking all British people 3 notches more than I otherwise would, upon hearing their accents.  So don't take offense, Brits.
