Sorry about the lack of posts, life has been incredibly busy, with little time for cooking and blogging. But with summer (AKA grilling season) in full swing, expect more warm weather recipes coming up.
Anyway, I’ve always associated trifles with being a decidedly British dessert. But despite the British origins, this trifle would be a delicious addition to a 4th of July celebration. Continue reading
Another soup recipe? Yes, another soup recipe. Mostly because the weather has been so un-spring-like and unseasonable cold. Jeff and I have been trying to use the grill as much as possible (grilling recipes are forthcoming) but it’s just been too dang cold out. Excuse my language. Continue reading
I LOVE Panera’s Broccoli Cheese Soup!! It is soooo good. And served in a soudough bread bowl, ohmagod. So when I decided to make Broccoli Cheese soup at home, I looked up the recipe for the Panera version. It turns out that the reason the soup is so delicious is because there is almost a whole stick of butter, 2 cups of half-and-half, and a whole block of cheese in this soup! Holy Fat Bomb Batman! I try to be health conscious when I’m cooking so I couldn’t make this recipe and look myself in the eye (or fit into my skinny jeans) after eating/serving it. Continue reading
I love lazy weekends when I get to wake up late, stay in my jammies, and whip up a tasty brunch. This is a recent brunch I made that made Jeff say, “It’s like we’re at Yolk (our local favorite brunch spot)!” Needless to say I was pretty proud of myself. This is a quick and easy recipe that doesn’t seem like a quick and easy recipe, meaning it’s fancy enough to serve to guests or that special someone. Also, you can make the syrup the day before, keep it in the fridge until morning, and warm it just before serving making it easy to serve to a crowd. Continue reading
My mom made this for me and my brother a lot when we were kids. But when we were little, we knew this dish as Beef Steak. I always thought it was a redundant name for the dish but what did I know, I was 8. Only until later did I find out that the official name of the dish is Bistek, which is basically Beef Steak without the “f”. Yeah, it’s pretty Pinoy. Continue reading
I love having little bites of food available when we have company over for drinks. Gougères are the perfect nibbly bit to accompany cocktails, wine, or beer. Gougères are basically a fancy cheese puff, nice and crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside, packed with cheesy goodness. And don’t ask me how to pronounce gougères because I have no idea. Continue reading
I love quiche. It’s so versatile, you can fill it with whatever meat, veggies, and cheese you have on hand and you’ve got yourself breakfast, lunch, or dinner. This quiche is more of a dinner quiche. I’m not exactly sure what makes a dinner quiche a dinner quiche but it felt right to me. Continue reading
