Do you know what I love the smell of? Fresh coffee beans… melted chocolate…fresh baked bread…and Roasted Garlic. There’s just something about that sweet yet pungent smell wafting through the house, because you know that something delicious is going to be made with it. For us today, this is the first step towards what I hope is going to be……..
Who loves croutons? No salad would be complete without some delicious, Crunchy Garlic Croutons. I originally made these croutons as a garnish for my Split Pea Soup, knowing full well that the leftovers were going to top every salad that I made for weeks to come….and they did! I love the added crunch mixed with my favorite Homemade Ranch Dressing for the perfect dinner salad……..
I’m back with another simple, yet dreaded recipe…..Turkey Gravy! People have a love hate relationship with gravy, but I am here to show you how incredibly easy it is to make. Not only is is easy, it turns out perfectly every time. Gravy is one of those recipes that takes a little bit of patience, and you need to follow directions. Take a deep breath, and you will have delicious Turkey Gravy in about 10 minutes……..
Cooking 101: Coconut Whipped Cream. I’m sure you have probably seen Coconut Whipped Cream before on pinterest, or other blogs. In fact I have used it in the past on my Dairy-free Chocolate Cream Pie, but I still felt that it needed it’s own post. Being lactose intolerant causes you to miss out on all kinds of fun desserts. This whipped cream has been a lifesaver for me……..
When I am short on time, I usually grab a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store to make my Southwest Chicken Salads and wraps. But when the stars align and I have more time, I cook my own chicken breasts that have been seasoned with this Southwest Seasoning mix. It adds some additional flavor, and makes them extra special….
It always surprises me when people complain about making gravy. They flat out dread having to make gravy, because it comes out lumpy…or it tastes like chalk…or they just have no clue how to do it. Take a deep breath, this Beef Gravy is so simple to make that you will be the one that is surprised! This is the same Beef Gravy that I made a couple of weeks ago to go with my Slow Cooker Pot Roast……..
Pizza is one of my absolute favorite food groups, and yet I don’t usually make Homemade Pizza Sauce…until now! I finally have a sauce that is perfect, and actually better than the Dei Fratelli sauce that I normally buy. I can add as much garlic as I want, or switch out fresh and dried herbs. The possibilities are endless……..
I am back again with yet another flavor of simple syrup! Yes, yes, I know you are all jumping up and down with joy and anticipation. Okay maybe you’re not, but this Blackberry Simple Syrup is happening either way. I will be honest, I was expecting a deeper flavor, but it is delicious none the less! Have you tried any of the other simple syrups yet?…
