I grew up in the deep south in a family of fun loving, passionate cooks. Now I am one.
Dishes, no you don't salt and pepper each bite before eating, but hopefully you don't bring the whole plate of food to your mouth?
Molly is correct. And I for one am thrilled to see the subject of etiquette discussed.
Thanks for great ideas!
Beans are probably my favorite food. So versatile, healthful, affordable, and delicious. I have beans on my list of things to cook this week, just not this weekend. I do look forward to the roundup on Wednesday so I can see what others are making.
The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover.
I am not a breakfast eater, but I love breakfast food. I make breakfast for dinner on a regular basis. I enjoy cooking it more in the evening; I can relax and enjoy it because we are not on schedules.
I love this. Thank you.
This sounds so delicious. Too late for this weekend, but I think I might make it for supper one night this week!
I have never, ever, heard of adding raisins to cornbread but I am so intrigued. Like others, I would suggest tossing them with flour or cornmeal.
With the bone from my Easter ham and a $2 bag of dried navy beans, I made a pot of Senate Bean Soup.
Carrots. Others on my top 10: collard greens, fresh lima beans, green beans, brussels sprouts, cauliflower, okra, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, and sweet potatoes.
Huge. As in, I'm a huge chocolate fan. I'm a huge lover of corn. My aunt was a huge jam maker. I recently saw a blogger say, "I am a huge pumpkin freak".
I have been cooking for many years and have certainly had my share of failures in the kitchen. And yes, they are discouraging! Whenever I get into a slump, I like to check out new and different food stores and markets. Better yet, I ask my husband to please do some food shopping. He is always a good sport and this does the trick for me. He always brings home the most beautiful and inspiring foods. Plus I don't have to go through that tired old, "what do you want for dinner"/"I don't care" conversation.
I plan ahead for leftovers. I love having homemade food to take for lunches at work and also reinventing them for another dinner. I recently used some take-out smoked, pulled pork, to season and flavor a Crock Pot of black beans, with delicious results.
Calling all cooks! Get yourself some "advanced healing" bandaids, they are amazing, as I learned when I sliced off a large portion of my thumb pad on a mandoline. They stop pain; they are amazingly flexible to fit over and around various hand and finger parts. You can leave them on for a couple of days (protect them with finger cot). And the healing process is accelerated. They are also recommended for burns, but I haven't had to use them for that--yet.
I love beets too. Over the weekend, I made one of our fall favorites--Beets in Citrus Sauce.
Last Christmas, my Brother gifted me with subscriptions to 3 different food magazines. I'm still loving the food every month!
A friend once asked for a recipe which I happily shared. Later, my husband and I were invited to her home for dinner. She served my recipe. Yes I do believe in sharing recipes, but I thought that was a little weird. She even told me how she made it like it was her own creation. She did a good job and we were served something we enjoyed, so, so what?
I made a salad with baby romaine lettuce, fresh cherries, and homemade blue cheese dressing.
I tried 2 times to add my comment about the pizza I made, but it never showed up.
I made a Crazy Crust pizza!
Not traditional. I am making fish tacos for two, with a pineapple and mango salsa and homemade tortillas. I decided the fruit sounded like spring and there is something satisfyingly biblical about serving fish.
Those cheeks look like they are full of sweet ambrosia. The dog is cute too.
An omelet. Or if need be, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
I love her.
Thanks for featuring my Naan photo!
