Chili Cheese Dip

Like I told you last week, I got a brand new cast iron skillet and keep looking for excuses to use it. So today is another skillet recipe! hahaI took out the chili I made a few months ago from the freezer (I stored it in two 32 oz containers) and decided to do something new to it. It’s also perfect for those of you who enjoy making quick snacks for game night!

I grew up eating it only at my aunt’s house (my mom mostly made Pakistani food at home) which was one of the few non-Pakistani dishes I enjoyed back then.

Last year, I decided that was a stupid reason not to make something so I started looking up recipes. I found one that seemed to be a good base to start on allrecipes.com. If you click here you’ll see the original. However, here is my version: Ingredients: -2 lb ground beef -2 (29 ounce) cans tomato sauce -2 (15 ounce) cans…

Easy Cheesy Veggie Quesadillas

My first recipe, yay! Let’s see if I can manage to write out the measurements and instructions properly because I usually end up putting a little bit of this and a little bit of that and just eye ball things when I’m cooking. I’m going to share this very simple recipe because it was one of the first things I learned to make as a kid, when I was still a FOB (fresh off the boat). I didn’t grow up eating cereal or pop tarts or luncheables etc. I ate paratha egg rolls and dhaal chaval (rice and lentils). I even took that stuff to school. In middle school we had to take a home economics class which included a cooking unit. I was a bit hesitant about the cooking unit because I knew we would be making things I didn’t really like eating at the time. I obviously couldn’t…
