1. Pulled Pork Sandwiches
I love mushrooms. I love adding them to pies and pasta, casseroles and curries. They add flavour and texture to so many dishes and pair well with so many different foods.
Tasty, delicious and fresh from the oven. As the cold winter nights are just around the corner you are going to need warm blankets, cosy slippers and hot cinnamon rolls for the evenings your going to spend indoors. So here is good authentic American cuisine that will be perfect for this season. These cinnamon rolls are also perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack that you will be craving for. The rolls are also perfect with fresh cream cheese frosting on top, which will be included in the recipe below. It takes roughly one hour and 50 minutes to make, and that includes proving the dough and kneading so you’re going to have to be patient. But don't worry these delicious treats will be worth the wait. So why not do some baking today and make these mouth watering cinnamon rolls that will fill you up in not time. Remember if you don't fancy any sweet goods why not check out some savoury baked goods at Bethany Bakes where you will find gluten free alternatives and vegan recipes.
It's that time of year again. The time of year where the snow is falling, things are becoming icy and cold. This is often know as sweater weather or hibernation weather but it could also be known as soup weather. Soup is one of the best ways to quickly warm up after a long day outside. Maybe it's the fact that I spend my days working outside and need a quick way to warm up at night or maybe it's the fact that I just really love soups and stews.
I didn’t used to be a morning person. I kinda forced it on myself. I had a hard time waking up before 10 AM before. I also was working retail and had no consistent schedule, so it was hard to hold myself to any kind of standard, really. So I started giving myself little things to be excited to wake up to. Usually, it’s a beverage. I have a cold brew drink on most mornings (more recipes for these coming soon), but sometimes I opt for a smoothie. This is one of my favorites. The ingredients are pretty easy to find, and if you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you know what I’m going to say: freeze your produce. It takes virtually no time to do, and it preps you for groggy mornings when you deserve something special but don’t want to take the extra time to make it. This is easy. You just throw everything in a blender and pulse it up. Even though this is a simple recipe, it took a few tries before I got it perfect. It was a journey. Strawberry and kiwi is an elite combination on its own, but I wanted to take it over the edge and give it some subtle enhancements. I’m extremely proud of this drink, and I’m happy to share the recipe. Also, truthfully, I don’t even like strawberries very much, so I took concocting this drink as a personal mission to make it balanced. I usually find strawberries too acidic on their own without the right balance of flavor to acid ratio. They’re too hit or miss, in my opinion, and they don’t stand alone well enough as a Good Fruit. But I’m not here to argue.
1. Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate
We have just two more months until 2020, and already I’m thinking about my new year resolution. Now let's be honest, how many of us has had at least 20 different new year resolutions and within the first two weeks of the new year they have been forgotten about?
I know I said that last week was my final summery drink recipe, but this week I recreated a watermelon drink I made back in July and wanted to share it. This is another simple one, but it’s fun and good so I’m going to walk you through it. Also, watermelon juice is available from a few different brands year-round, so while this is summery in essence, it isn’t relegated to any specific seasonal enjoyment. I juiced this watermelon myself, but if you need a store-bought recommendation, Wonder Melon makes a great watermelon juice. They have a couple of flavors but I really like the watermelon-cucumber-basil one. This was a more spur of the moment recipe, so it was only prepared for one, but the measurements are so simple that you could easily make this for more people.
What, you may ask, is Soup-Sauce? I’ll tell you. It is a soup that is so rich, thick and flavoursome that you’re not just limited to eating it out of a bowl using a spoon, but it can also be used as a pasta sauce, on a homemade pizza or in a lasagne. In fact, any recipe that you might open a tin of chopped tomatoes for, consider this instead to give delicious depth and complexity of flavour.
Sometimes, I come across a net of citrus fruit for around a quarter of the full price. Even if I’m buying full-price citrus fruit, it’s usually cheaper to buy several rather than a single. While it’s handy to keep lemons and limes in the fridge, there comes a point when they need using before they get old and shriveled.
Sometimes Hunter Gathering opportunities come along when you least expect them.
For awhile, it seemed like it might be summer in Nashville forever. Luckily, the weather has finally started to cooperate and fall is here!
