About Me

My photo
hey! My name is Kyle Cook. Recently me and my girlfriend Stephanie have had to be parted while she's working in Austria, and Me here in New york city. We thought it would be fun to keep a blog of the different meals we make since when we are together our lives are heavily influenced by cooking. Steffi is going pescaterian and gluten free right now. So she should be posting some really cool stuff. We will be posting various different recipes we have done on our own or together, as well and restaurants we have tried. This is the closest we can get to cooking together and keep that part of us alive and well. Hope you enjoy it. - k+s

speedy lunch

I felt like I was going to collapse from hunger when I was helping my mom move today! She didn't have much in her fridge either so I threw this thing together. I actually ended up liking it allot, and it only took ten minutes to cook.

2 boiled potatoes
some kidney beans
1/2 zucchini

I cubed the zucchini and threw it in a pan with some sunflower oil and fried it for a couple minutes. Then I added the beans, stirred and covered, checking on it occasionally. Chop up some parsley in the meantime. I found some left over boiled potatoes in the fridge, cut them up into somewhat bigger pieces so they would't fall apart, and threw them in with the other veggies when the zucchini seemed to be almost done. At this point I also added the parsley, and covered the veggies for another couple minutes. Thats it! take it off the heat, pour in a little yogurt, and salt to taste.
I thought it turned out pretty good, but then again I was also starving :)

You can buy really good gluten free bread in austria, it's pretty amazing. I never had allot of luck with bread in the states, they are fine at making white bread, but none of the dark bread really hits the spot for me. When I started eating gluten free in NYC, I pretty much just stopped eating it for the most part. My brothers fiance, Claire, who has celiac disease, had some of her favorite gluten free bread brands that were defiantly alright. http://www.udisfood.com/
Austrians however have mastered their bread-making skills, even in the gluten free section. So I am back to stuffing my face with it!
Here is a open faced sandwich I did. I just used some sliced goat cheese, sprouts, and radishes. It looked really pretty and was super delicious
