31 May

melvin bananaHey Basement Dwellers!  So how do you feel about Arrested Development being back on?  Melvin and I have heard differing opinions from many Arrested Development fans, but I have to say, I’ve been loving it so far.  I’m only on the fourth episode because I’m trying to take it slow, even though Melvin has already watched the entire season.  But anyway, Melvin and I were reminded by our dear friend Laina about the different foods that come up in Arrested Development, so we decided that we needed to make a banana recipe.  What can you make that’s simple and delicious with bananas?  Well, banana cookies, that’s what!  Not only are these cookies easy to make and super tasty, they’re also somewhat healthy!  So read on for the recipe!

Ygritte’s Leek and Potato Soup

17 May

wildling soupOne of my favorite characters in Game of Thrones is Ygritte, the wildling kissed by fire.  Fire isn’t the only thing she’s being kissed by, but that’s a story for another day.  Today, Melvin and I are making a dish in homage to the Free Folk, something that would warm them up on their trek through the north.  But what exactly does a wildling have to eat?  We thought a nice and simple leek and potato soup would be something that you could find cooking in a pot in a wildling camp.  So if you want to reach down to your true northern roots and eat something to celebrate the Free Folk, read on!
