Burgers with Lime Mayonnaise

The intent was to successfully finish our epic fish marathon.  Our game plan was extensive and detailed.  The tilapia would be blackened to hide the fact that we were still eating fish.  As a further precaution, the tilapia would then be served with lime mayonnaise and as a sandwich to mask the texture and taste of tilapia.  And in celebration we invited Cedric to aid in the disappearance of the tilapia.

At least… that was the plan.

If I had a nickel for every plan I made, I’d be a very, very rich person.

5 Minute Chocolate Sauce

Have you ever reached the point when you’ve done so much homework that you want a chocolate fix so badly but at the same time you are too lazy to drive to the closest McDonalds to buy an ice cream sundae?  I have.
One night during a homework rush, all I had to satisfy my sweet tooth was bread and butter pecan ice cream with no chocolate sauce.
Thus, I humbly present to you a 5 minute post for a 5 minute chocolate sauce.

Grilled Salmon with Mushrooms and Shallot Sauce

Facts of life: I love salmon.  I love mushrooms.  And I love shallots.  So when I saw a recipe that included salmon AND mushrooms AND shallots I pretty much passed out from anticipation.

In fact, I was so excited that I neglected to read the recipe.   You think I’m kidding?  I’m completely serious.   But I’m going to blame this on the fact that I was craving mushroom stroganoff.

Little Italy in Thailand

So, there are two stories that relates to this recipe – I promise you it will only take two bullet points, and less time it took Ted Mosby to tell his kids how he met their mother or the number of women he slept with before he met their mother (honestly, if you didn’t get the reference, go seclude yourself under a rock and watch all seven seasons of the appropriately named show, How I Met Your Mother).

Bread Pudding with Vanilla Sauce

It was 10 o’clock at night and I had to listen to my tummy, the block of hardened Ciabatta lying on top of my toaster, and my homework sitting pathetically on the living room floor. Thus, I decided as a responsible college student enrolled in summer school, it was completely logical to not suppress the urge to make bread pudding with vanilla sauce.

I mean, you can’t work on a disgruntle stomach – right? Tell me otherwise. I dare you.
Without further ado, I humbly present my first entry onto The Kitchen of Requirement!
