GOOD TASTE: Jazzed Up Instant Ramen Noodles

Instant Ramen Upgrade  - homework (2)


You know those instant ramen noodles – the ones that come in a compact rectangle with a little powdery season pack? Ya, those. I always keep packages of those in my cupboard. If I do make them with the season pack, I only use about 1/3 of the packet. But I rarely use the seasoning that it comes with. Instead, they’re a great base for leftovers. Beef, pork, chicken, shrimp… just about anything goes with those noodles. Here’s an example of what you can make.

GOOD TASTE: Peanut Butter Chocolate Button Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Button Cookies via homework - carolynshomework (3)Did I mention we’re having an end-of-summer heat wave here in Southern California? We are. The kind of heat where you just don’t want to do anything. Plus, since we live near the coast, we don’t have air conditioning. We rely on an ocean breeze that has been letting us down lately.

GOOD TASTE: Pistachio Pomegranate Granola

Pistachio Pomegranate Granola via homework - carolynshomework.com

I’ve been trying to be healthier and snack on things like veggies, fruit and granola. It irks me every time I buy granola at the market because it’s so darn expensive. And I don’t even get the really good stuff – that’s just too pricey. I finally had some time and made up a batch and it is so good.

GOOD TASTE: A Rainbow of Granita Recipes

1-Granita Round Up


Every July 11th or 7/11, the 7-Eleven Convenience Stores give away free Slurpees. Have you ever had a Slurpee? They’re a frozen, icy, sugary beverage that tastes so good on a hot day. I didn’t get my free Slurpee this year which made me sad. So I started thinking about how I could easily make something similar. Have you heard of Granita? It’s a fancy Slurpee! Doesn’t Granita sound better than Slurpee? Actually, a Granita is better than a Slurpee and as I was checking out granita ideas, I realized that you can pretty much make them in a rainbow of colors and flavors.
