Homemade Dandan noodles. A noodle dish originating from Chinese Sichuan cuisine consisting of a spicy sauce containing preserved vegetables, chili oil,Sichuan pepper, minced pork, and scallions served over noodles. This however is a vegetarian version so the minced pork was omitted!
The name refers to a type of carrying pole (dan dan) that was used by walking street vendors who sold the dish to passers-by. The pole was carried over the shoulder, with two baskets containing noodles and sauce attached at either end. The noodles cost almost nothing, and gradually local people came to call them dandan noodles. Literally, the name translates as “noodles carried on a pole,” but may be better translated as “peddler’s noodles.”
Homemade Vegan Ramen
Started with a few cups of vegetable stock and few cups of water. Placed about a cup of sliced shitake mushrooms, 2 cloves of garlic, and about an inch piece of ginger into the stock. Brought to boil, let reduce about 20-30 minutes. 
Roasted the broccoli and onions with a little bit of olive oil, sesame oil, and salt/pep.
Once stock was reduced I put the noodles in to warm up, then served once heated thoroughly, topping with the broccoli, onions and shitakes.

Low Fat Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
I made these cookies for Christmas this year. Aside from the recent bread endeavor and a weekly batch of dough for some pizza, I wouldn’t call myself a baker.
I got the recipe from this blog, Julia’s Album, and the only change I made was to add a 1 1/2 tbsp of peanut butter, 1/2 tsp of ground nutmeg and 1/4 tsp of ground clove. Very easy to make, simple to follow. Here it is below, as copied from Julia’s Album.

1 and 1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 ripe banana
1 egg
2 tablespoons oil
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup regular granulated sugar
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 and 3/4 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup chocolate chips
 sprinkles, for decorating

makes 30 cookies
1) Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
2) In a separate bowl, mash the banana. Add the egg, oil, brown and granulated sugars, yogurt, and vanilla and whisk to combine.
3) Add the banana-egg mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Fold in the oats, then fold in the chocolate chips.
4) Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Take a tablespoon of dough, form a ball and drop the cookie dough ball on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat, spacing the cookie dough balls about 2 inches apart. At this point, I would refrigerate baking sheets with cookie dough balls for about an hour to chill the dough. This will ensure that cookies, when baked, will not flatten out, and that they will remain tall, so that we end up with thick and chewy cookies!
5) Bake for 12 minutes until cookies are slightly golden brown. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
