In case you haven't noticed, my entries have slowed down lately and are now on a bit of a break. I've been living in a home without a proper kitchen, so instead of uploading bad pictures of alright dishes, I figured I'd put a pause on the posts until I'm back in a real kitchen (which is happening in 3 weeks). For now, I'll leave you with some of my beautiful kitchen disasters. I will attempt some of these in the future with a few tweaks, but the rest are so bad that I have given up on them completely.

pretty boring blackberry muffins

grilled chicken with bruschetta: sounds much more flavorful than in tasted

the not quite perfect chocolate cookies

cashew chicken in need of more sauce, and a bit more of a kick

speculoos lacking in the spice department

cumin rubben fish that somehow turned out bland

Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup

This recipe is another one sent to me by my sister. I think she is trying to make me jealous since we don't have ingredients like chipotles in adobo in my village. In fact, we seem to be missing most spices I usually cook with (cumin included). I absolutely love the flavor chipotles in adobo add to any recipe and hope that you can all access this great ingredient. You won't use the whole can of chipotles for this recipe, but they freeze really well if you end up with lots of extra.

My sister found this recipe and tweaked it a bit to suit her preferences, which are usually also my preferences, so the variation I'm posting is hers. She said it makes lots of soup, so you may might want to invite someone over to help you finish off the pot. Hopefully I can try this recipe soon since it seems like a delicious, hearty soup.
