The King’s Chicken Pesto Sandwich

Hello, from Hershey, Pennsylvania! Land of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Kisses, and the Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. I am currently in my first week as a visiting student at the Penn State-affiliated hospital. However, this is not my first time visiting “The Sweetest Place On Earth.” As a child, whenever we flew “back East” (as…

David’s Chicken Paprikash with The Rheinlander’s Spätzle

This is kind of a 2-for-1 recipe post. Chicken paprikash is another dish that David introduced to me early in our relationship. It has quickly become one of my go-to recipes for its ease and amazing flavor. As you might imagine, paprika is the main ingredient in this dish. Paprika originated in Central Mexico and…

The King’s Chilaquiles

My third year of medical school has flown by! We finished all of our rotations in the core clerkships: Internal Medicine, Neurology, Psychiatry, Surgery, Obstetrics & Gynecology, and Pediatrics. While our third year far surpassed first and second year, it did not leave a lot of time for blogging. I am just now entering my…

Nani’s Oatmeal Cake

When I was home for Christmas, I was able to visit Nani a handful of times. The visits get harder and harder, as her memory goes little by little. For those who haven’t experienced the slow loss of a loved one to Alzheimer’s disease, I’ve found it helps to reflect on the parts of them that…

Gnocchi with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

So medical school got a little busy and while I was still cooking a lot and taking pictures of said cooking, I didn’t have time to write posts to share with you all. But, I’m back and ready to provide you with some more delicious recipes. I’m sure you’ve noticed that The King’s Kitchen Blog…

The King’s Chili Chicken Tacos

Tuesdays can be pretty crummy. It’s still the beginning of the week and you have a ways to go until Friday. However, Tuesday is redeemed when it is Taco Tuesday! I first started celebrating Taco Tuesdays when I was living in San Diego. I always looked forward to going to a different taco stand or…

Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons

So, last week I introduced you to the deliciousness that is Coffee Ice Cream. However, you may have noticed that the recipe called for six egg yolks, and one thing I hate doing is throwing good ingredients away. I think it is such a waste! So, I turned to the internet for some ideas and…

Coffee Ice Cream

Coffee and med school. Sometimes it feels like these two things go hand-in-hand. When I first started in August, I was drinking a lot of coffee in the morning and sometimes throughout the day. I’m pretty sensitive to the stuff and so if I drink too much I get really wired and am bouncing off…

Ice Cream Makers

I haven’t posted about a great kitchen gadget in a long time! Seeing as it has been quite warm in Florida, I felt that ice cream was in order. So naturally, I decided that a post about ice cream makers was in order. There are two different types of ice cream makers that I use…

Sriracha Hummus

Every now and then I find a recipe that just feels like it’s missing something. That’s what happened when I made the recipe for Restaurant-Style Hummus from the Cook’s Illustrated Cookbook. David and I made it for an appetizer before dinner one night, and we were both left a little underwhelmed. So, one evening I’m alone,…

Shrimp Scampi

So in my haste to get some of these posts out, I forgot to mention some vital news! Ok, it’s not really that vital, but for anyone else out there that is also a photography enthusiast, I got a new camera lens! The Nikon AF 50mm f/1.8D to be specific and it has taken some…

Shrimp Fra Diavolo

Back to the blog! School is crazy busy, so it doesn’t leave a lot of time to cook, take pictures and then write a post. I have been stockpiling a lot of pictures of different things that I make so that I can roll them out when I get a chance. So, I’m taking a…
