Spicy Southwestern Chicken Soup

So… I could offer all sorts of excuses as to where I have been and why I haven’t been blogging, but I’m not a big fan of excuses, so I won’t. I guess I didn’t think that anybody would notice I haven’t been writing new posts and I could just start posting again as if … Continue reading

Weekend Shennighans

This weekend I am cooking up something epically fabulous for Father’s Day. I hope I can make something awesome to make my dad proud. I knew that I would have to go “all out” on this one. Not that I didn’t for Mother’s Day (hi, Mom!) but cooking for my dad is totally different. I … Continue reading

A Specific Recipe for a Specific Guy

Today I woke up in one of those crummy moods. It happens to the best of us. Sometimes all it takes is one minor thing going wrong, no matter how small, to throw the whole day out of whack. Today happen to be my day. The last week of the month is always a little … Continue reading

Jamaican Curry Lamb

As if it isn’t glaringly obvious to everyone around me, I think my boyfriend is pretty awesome. Which means I wanted to cook him an awesome dinner. Not that I haven’t been doing that all these weeks, but I wanted to do something that would be an extra special surprise. I know this is a … Continue reading

Mother’s Day Feast

My oven is still broken. And my vehicle. And various other things that should be in working order, all of which my mom has heard me complain endlessly about. Sometimes when I call her, before I even say anything, she asks me “oh no, what happened now?!” because she is awesome like that, and also … Continue reading


Well, it is a landmark day here at the 29andhungry kitchen. Let me preface this by saying no, I have not finally made my perfect cheese that I’ve been attempting. No, I haven’t gotten my broken oven fixed. BUT what I did do is manage to make a recipe by myself. Not that I haven’t … Continue reading

Beef Stir-Fry – Wait, No

So, I had made a beef stir-fry and worked very hard on it and of course was going to make a post about it, but every time I tried to write the post it wound up something like “I made stir-fry and it was fast-paced and hard and if my boyfriend wasn’t there to help … Continue reading

Third Time’s a (sorta) Charm

I really love cheese. I am definitely one of those people who believes everything is better if there’s cheese on it, and if there already is cheese on something it would be better with more. Given my success with making paneer for my palak paneer recipe, I started looking at other types of cheese that … Continue reading

The Saag Spiral

I often say “Eww, I don’t like [insert food here] ” which is a secret code for “There’s something weird or gross or smelly or just ugly about said food, I don’t want to try it because I’ve already made up my mind that it will be disgusting.” Such was the case about a year … Continue reading


Katharine Hepburn once said “If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.”  I do tend to agree with her, but I also know myself well enough to know that if I don’t place some sort of rules on what I’m doing here, everything will go out the window and in a week’s … Continue reading
