French Toast

I tried to make the fresh toast a little special, I grated some fresh cinnamon to put on top of the french toast. I also had some really good Maple Syrup. It turned out to be a quite simple but good dinner. It reminded me of the french toast I had when I was out in Seattle, they just had a few more ingredients that made it a bit too heavy in my personal opinion.

 

Korean Braised Beef Short Ribs

We got some beef short ribs on a whim just because they looked so amazing. I had never cooked them or done anything with them before in my life though.

After thinking about what to do with them I had this idea of making Korean Style Beef Short Ribs. Well normally when I make Asian food (not Pakistani/Indian) the flavors never turn out quite right since well I have never really experimented with them that much.

Anyway I decided to give this a whirl. I marinated them for 24hrs or so then I decided to cook them in the crockpot and you can see the end results for yourself!

 

Montreal Kebab With Bell Pepper and Onion and Couscous

So we couldn’t figure out what to make for dinner decided to go to the grocery store. I saw some beef that looked great to me and well I was like I’ve never made Kebabs before so lets give this a whirl. As for the starch to go with them I made some Couscous with garlic and olive oil.

It turned out pretty good and only took about 20mins total.

Chicken Tikka Pizza (Semi Thin Crust Edition)

Okay so I decided to see if I could get my pizza crust thinner and maybe it would be a little less doughy in the center and cooked all the way through.

 

Regardless the last pizza still turned out amazing but here is the one with the new technique.

 

So this time what I did was put some cornmeal down on the cast iron skillet, once it started to smoke a little bit I put the dough on it to start cooking it before I put the ingredients on it. In this case I was going to put some fresh mozzarella cheese, bell pepper, onion, chicken breast that was cut up and marinated with some chicken tikka seasoning.

Once the crust reached what felt like its half way point of cooking I put on the pizza sauce, cheese and the rest of the toppings. I finished the pizza off with the broiler on for a couple of minutes (I also have the worlds weakest oven, once an omelet was left under it for 10 minutes and it did not burn the omelet. So you get the idea)

Homemade Stuffed Bell Peppers

Stuffed peppers:

I decided to give them a try since I have always heard how good they are and well I wasn’t a huge fan but I would make them again to see if I could improve.
