Cinnamon Roll Cookies

Cooking Is My Sport


Its funny; I’ve made hundreds of holiday cookies, but I don’t think I’ve ever participated in an actual cookie swap. Not a single one.

You guys know what those are, right? Cookie swaps are sugar overload get-togethers where each of the attendants bakes up a large batch of cookies and brings them to share & ‘swap’ everyone else who’s brought their own recipe of cookies to the party. Everyone is supposed to bring a different type so that there’s as much variety as possible. Sometimes there will be recipe exchanges along with the cookies. Sometimes people will vote on which cookie at the swap is the best tasting.


It’s probably just in my competitive nature but if I did actually go to a cookie swap, I would want MY cookies to be the favorite. If all of the cookies were laid out together on a platter, I’d want MINE to…

Onion Naan

Cooking Is My Sport

Onion Naan 1

So, it’s been over two years since I last made naan-style bread.

That’s a long time for me to wait to make something that I enjoy so much. But there was a pretty valid reason for it.If you’ve been following me and my blog for a while then you might remember this story. But if you haven’t been following and/or don’t remember then…what the heck? I’ll recap.

See, the last time that I did make naan, I kiiiiiinda started a fire in my oven.

Onion Naan 5

Oh, yeah. You read that right.

I made one or two pretty serious (and in retrospect, quite silly) mistakes and those mistakes ended up starting a fire. Not to worry. It wasn’t a huge one. No extinguisher was needed. 911 was not called. Everyone is fine. But it still kinda freaked me out.

Since it was my first time making naan I had done some research…

Báhn Mì Pizza

20151215_182330editI think I’ve found a new hobby, turning delicious foods into pizza. Like this incredibly, insanely delicious Bahn Mi pizza.

I am a big time menu planner and I usually try to plan at least a weeks’  worth of meals at a time, and sometimes more. I made this delicious carnitas recipe and knew I would have leftovers. That, on top of the fact I had this delicious aioli sitting in my cupboard just waiting to be used, randomly inspired this bomb a** pizza. 20151215_185919editThe first time I had Bahn Mi was several years ago at Saigon Sisters in Chicago and I think I just stopped drooling over it like… last week. Hands down one of my favorite flavor combos is south east asian flavors….scratch that, most asian flavors are my favorite.  But Thai, Vietnamese, Korean ❤ ❤ ❤ maybe it’s the rice, ginger, lemongrass, curry…
