This holiday has been a wonderful time for me to experiment with some favorite comfort dishes. Have you ever wanted to spice up an old dish? One of my family’s favorites is lasagna. But I don’t make it as often as I’d like because it can be time consuming. Especially, when you are making most of it (minus the pasta) from scratch. Luckily, I came across a twist on this favorite comfort dish that makes it quick to make.
My friend likes to have parties. For me, a party always bears the question, what do I bring? So, what do you bring you ask? I usually bring dessert. What’s wonderful about these get togethers, is that usually everyone contributes something. In turn, there’s always a dish or two that becomes the topic of conversation. At one of the parties, I was introduced to homemade cornbread.
Has there ever been a dish that you loved but you just didn’t believe you could make it yourself? Creme brûlée was that dish for me. There are some tips and tricks to get this done. Come make some Decadent Coffee Creme Brûlée with me. You won’t be sorry. Continue reading “Decadent Coffee Creme Brûlée”
My friends know I don’t need a holiday to indulge in food but Cinco de Mayo is this week and I just wouldn’t be a true American if I didn’t make a dish. True American. Yes, I said it. As my Mexican friends have made very clear, Cinco de Mayo is more celebrated in America than Mexico. Americans make a big deal over the Battle of Pueblo because it gives them a reason to party. Of course, it’s also a great opportunity to introduce Mexican culture. Typically with Mexican food and drink. Funny huh. But whatever works.
Waffles… Who doesn’t like a good waffle. Though most of the dishes on this blog are the foods that comfort me and make me happy. This one is for my little. Whether waffles or pancakes, mini me is a fan of carbs and fruit in the morning. I asked him why he likes waffles so much? He said because it’s yummy. Well duh!! What’s wrong with me. So thank goodness for those wonderful people from Sweden who created this dish, so that we could have this type of “yummy.”
The holidays get so busy I did not plan any specific dishes for the blog. But this deconstructed spinach salad was a life saver. My focus has been on trying to make an AIP Paleo dish to bring to my friend’s house for brunch. This dish allowed everyone big and small to get what they wanted and needed out of our brunch meal.
I’ve been on this breakfast kick and I don’t want it to end. Particularly, not after the bacon and egg hash brown cups I made the other day. I love a good “to go” breakfast.
It’s fair to say that fried chicken is a very American dish. That is until I discovered it was more of a Scottish dish brought to North America and remixed. Then it was taken by Southern Americans and made into what it is today. Well thank goodness for the Scottish. Don’t be fooled, this oven fried chicken is crunchy and moist.
