easy veggie pasta stir fry

makes 1 serving

ingredients:

half a carrot

half a zucchini

half a bell pepper

1 onion

a lot of garlic

butter

salt and pepper

soy sauce

pasta of ur choice (i use spaghetti but u can use anything u have! id recommend it to be a long type of pasta tho)

start making the pasta according to package instructions (some pastas r different so it's best u guide urself by the package instructions!)

while the pasta's cooking, chop all the veggies. slice the zucchini, cut the carrots into sticks and dice the onion and pepper. peel and cut the garlic into tiny pieces.

turn on the stove on medium-high heat and on a sauté pan (or a big skillet if u don't have one) put in some vegetable oil. when that's hot add in the veggies. add the onions and garlic first and when that turns into a golden color add in the rest of the veggies, cook until theyre soft. add in salt, pepper and butter, then stir one more time. add in some soy sauce and stir.

strain the pasta and toss it into the pan with the veggies. add more soy sauce, and salt if needed. stir quickly to incorporate everything together and serve.

carrot cake

makes 1 cake

ingredients:

2 eggs

1 cup sugar

½ cup sunflower oil

vanilla extract

1 cup flour

1 tbsp cinnamon

2 cups shredded carrots

crack two eggs in a large bowl and add in the sugar. start mixing till the mixture gets fluffy and its color becomes a light yellow. add in the oil and vanilla extract and keep mixing. add the flour and cinnamon bit by bit and mix until just incorporated. be careful not to overmix tho or the texture will get screwed up!!!! then add in the carrots.

(optionally, at this point u can add stuff like raisins and chopped walnuts if u like that kinda stuff. go crazy.)

pour the batter into a mold (i use a 21x9.5 cm silicone mold) and bake at 180°c/350°f for about 25 minutes or so. id advice u keep an eye on it tho.

let cool and serve. u can add cream cheese frosting if u like but i myself don't. i like serving mine with ice cream tho!!!

pizza

makes 2 25cm (9in) pizzas

dough:

1 ½ cups flour

1tbsp yeast

1 cup warm water

1 tsp sugar

oil

salt

put yeast and sugar in 1 cup of warm water. let sit for a lil while. meanwhile put the flour and salt in a bowl and mix very thoroughly. add yeast mixture. mix and knead very well. let rest for about a half hour. knead again and make into pizza shapes. u should have enough dough for two small pizzas.

sauce:

3 tomatoes

many many cloves of garlic

half an onion

butter

salt n pepper

oregano

cumin

wash and cut up them tomatoes. wash, peel and cut the onion and peel the garlic. you can toss it into the blender for a smoother sauce or throw it into the saucepan without blending for a chonkier sauce. either way you gotta throw it into a saucepan. whatever. add in all the seasonings. and butter. lots of butter. then let it cook and when it's cooked turn off the stove and add oregano.

toppings:

mozzarella cheese

a few bits of butter

anything u like hehe!! :]

start adding the sauce, then cheese and then all the toppings. (my personal favs r bell peppers, onion, canned corn and bacon bits). add in tiny bits of butter too cuz it gives it a nice taste. then it goes into the oven at 180°c/350°f for about 10 minutes or until it gets nice and toasty and the cheese is melted.

once it's out of the oven, u can add in some basil, extra oregano, pepper and other kinds of stuff like that for a better taste. cut into slices and serve.
