Cooking What I Crave

There was a lot of stuff I was craving that I could not get in London. Every time I ran into this situation I am so glad that I was not scared of cooking things myself. Everything on this list is funnily something that I have never made before. So the list goes:

  • Peanut butter cookies: this is funny since I never had a craving for them or even really liked them when living in the US.
  • Avocado pizza: I've always made this on English muffins but I made it with this time with hand thrown dough. I think I was craving the dough more than anything.
  • Enchiladas: This I actually made before but I couldn't resist since my friend brought back tortillas from their US visit.
  • Fish tacos: It's weird I've never made this before as restaurants make it with the shredded cabbage and such. But I had this craving since I had the corn tortillas from my friend I felt I needed to savor.
  • Horchata: made for the Mexican party.
  • Hand-made tortillas: made for the Mexican party.
  • Chicken noodle soup: craving the home-made thick noodles.
  • Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies: My sister sent me Oreos and I didn't know what to do with them.
  • Gingerbread men: Christmas craving.
  • Cheddar biscuits: Famous from the restaurant Red Lobster. I had this craving for Christmas too.
  • Cornbread: I bought corn meal for the first Thanksgiving I was here but didn't get around to making it until my second Thanksgiving.
  • Pumpkin pie: Thanksgiving craving with a home-made crust too.
  • Persimmon pudding: I've made this before but I couldn't resist making this since I had access to persimmons.
  • Biscuits and Gravy: Every time hearing about British biscuits I got the craving for American biscuits.
  • Macaroni and Cheese: I thought this was not an American food so I found it funny when I could only find this at the American grocery store. I didn't feel like paying £4 for what would cost less than a dollar in the US.
