Oh hellooo SnapChat! Are you guys on snapchat? I AM! Ha! I finally bit the bullet and got “thekitchenpaper” on snapchat! Um, follow me, please? I have *no* idea what I’m doing, but it seems every other food blogger decided to get on snapchat last week, so I figured I’ll hop on the trend, too….

Neiman Marcus $250 Cookies

Neiman Marcus $250 Cookies |

It’s throwback Thursday! Every Thursday I’m going to be re-making, and re-photographing, a recipe I posted waaay early in this blog’s life. It’s time to have better pictures for some of my favorites! I originally posted these cookies three years ago, and they’re STILL my go-to cookie for every occasion. I make them for ski…

Chipotle Corn Almond Soup

Chipotle Corn Almond Soup |

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Hellooooo soup! Being back in Portland has meant a few things: I have an oven (!!!), I can’t drive on the left side of the street anymore (at least not safely…), and I have cold toes. In Bali I had a few pairs of socks for running, which I haven’t…

Vietnamese Sticky Pork Noodles (Bún Thịt Nướng)

Vietnamese Sticky Pork Noodles (Bún Thịt Nướng) |

I think Vietnam should hire me to be their #1 fan. I often find myself in conversation (like, all the time) saying “Vietnam this!” and “Vietnam that!” and “YAY YAY VIETNAM #1!” … It’s probably a bit annoying. I’ve had multiple friends and acquaintances recently approach me for travel advice, most of them coming to…

5 Minute Huevos Rancheros

5 Minute Huevos Rancheros |

I’m in the best possible rut ever: HUEVOS RANCHEROS! Last week, I managed to have them 5 of 7 breakfasts. Catapulted by a ridiculously delish brunch out, and then by having made these tacos and having leftover beans, huevos rancheros = MY JAM. I realize huevos can vary greatly — whole beans, refried beans, various…

GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS!? I probably don’t even have to tell you. You’re probably so excited already! I know it’s been a while, but it’s MOOTHIE MONDAY! Wooop! In all honesty, there has been a lack of moothie mondays because my blender broke! Boo! It’s been a very Bali experience: the connection between the…

Garlic Spinach Potato Pancakes with Poached Eggs

Garlic Spinach Potato Pancakes with Poached Eggs |

Let’s talk about TV. It’s been a while, and if you watch House of Cards: TOMORROW IS A HUUUUUGE DAY! SEASON 3! Oh em gee for reals. I’ve been seriously considering re-watching seasons one and two, but I realize that’s a total waste of my time and I absolutely should do it. Right? Right. Keep…

Guinness Chicken Tacos

Guinness Chicken Tacos |

I just realized that I haven’t worn shoes — proper shoes — for nearly three months. THREE MONTHS?! All I’ve worn are flip flops! The last time I wore my sneakers was hiking Mt. Batur, which definitely called for real shoes, but since then it’s been wild toes for me! Occasionally I’ll throw on my…

Curry Tofu Breakfast Scramble

Curry Tofu Breakfast Scramble |

Before you run away screaming, from fear of tofu, just let me TRY to convince you that this is beyond edible. You might even consider it delicious! At least, I do. I’ve tried my best over the last six months to introduce you to tofu in a non-offensive way — and I hope you’ve tried…

Black Pepper Tofu and Shiitake Mushroom Soup with Ginger Lemongrass Broth

Black Pepper Tofu and Shiitake Mushroom Soup with Ginger Lemongrass Broth |

Every time. EVERY time! Every time I make a recipe like this with a freaking monster title I feel so guilty and like I need to apologize… Which I probably don’t. You’d probably be okay with it if I just let it rock on up there like run-on sentence in all its glory. But, I’m…

Sesame Chicken Soba Noodle Stir Fry |

If you want to find Nemo, which I think you probably do, I highly suggest you come to Bali and go diving off the Northwest corner of the island. NEMO IS UP THERE! Seriously! I went diving up there this week and was BLOWN AWAY! I’d heard that this was *the* spot to go diving…

White Cheddar Sage Queso Fundido

White Cheddar Sage Queso Fundido |

By this point, you guys don’t need a preamble from me about how much I love cheese. You KNOW I am full blown, 100%, absolutely crazy about it. I’m a wee bit afraid to go to France for fear of never leaving — the cheese will suck me in and never spit me out, I’m…

Flat White (Coffee) Pudding

Flat White (Coffee) Pudding |

If you’d ask me one year ago what a “flat white” was — I would have had absolutely no idea. I’m guessing a lot of Americans are in the same boat right now, as Starbucks has recently introduced the flat white to America… and now it’s catching on like wildfire. But really — Australia and…

Rosemary Parmesan Vegetable Pasta

Rosemary Parmesan Vegetable Pasta |

Another recipe where I have ten bajillion potential titles in my head! Rosemary infused butter pasta? Easy one-pot pasta? Lazy person yummy pasta? Veggie butter herby carbs? I could keep going… but I’ll spare you. This is, literally, the one and only thing I cooked during my month of teacher training. THE ONLY THING. I…
