stay-busy-cation

Lately my motto has been go-go-go in life/work/play. It is catching up with me and I am going to admit that I am tired. Yet, there is still a lot to do over the next two weeks with moving into our new row home. There are also factors I always forget about like packing away a kitchen makes it hard to be ‘Bakey Katey’ and moving into a new place requires setting up internet.

All of that being said, it is time for a 2 week break from The Railways. I wish I was taking this break to travel, take it easy, see new sights and enjoy relaxing activities, but really it is a stay-busy-cation. Be back May 5 with lots of new goodies to share!

Panna Cotta. It’s a doozy to achieve the correct texture. I almost perfected this element in this weekend’s dessert adventure, Coconut Panna Cotta with Grapefruit Gelee. A simple recipe that only requires time for your panna cotta and gelee to set in the fridge. I worked on the recipe throughout the day on Sunday and it turned out divine. Divine as in, I gobbled up one serving in less than 3 minutes regardless of my almost perfect texture.

Best part? This dessert is gorgeous!

I will not lie. This Sesame Garlic Chicken is probably the best chicken dish I have made so far. The chicken was moist and tender and full of flavor. An easy recipe that I am going to put in my arsenal for dinners!

Happy Wednesday! The past few weeks have been extremely busy for me, being out of town on the weekends and getting ready to move out of my apartment and into a row home with my Mountain Man! Once we get all settled, I’ll share photos of our new space.

Last night in between moving a car load of belongings and laundry, I was able to make Tahini Soba Noodles for dinner. I bought Sesame Oil from Trader Joe’s and knew the dish needed a kick since the recipe called for Chile Sesame Oil. I threw in some chili powder and extra fresh ginger, sat back and enjoyed!

Want to know a fun trick? Tahini is easy to make – toast sesame seeds, throw them in a food processor and add in a little bit of olive oil until you have a nut butter consistency. I don’t use tahini that often and this way I can make just enough for the recipe!
