There is nothing better than a bowl of warm soup and fresh bread on a day that you need a pick me up, or watching movies on a cold (or warm day). Going through My Culinary Adventure, my next phase is soups. Trying my hand at potato & leek soup and now butternut soup.
I LOVE french toast, my husband not so much but for breakfast yesterday I made these on the fly, and he had TWO. I used what was on hand at that moment and forgot to add the bacon to the egg mixture, so we had it as a side.
These muffins are my first attempt at recipe development and I must say, they are really good. They are filling, not sweet and can be frozen. These hearty muffins are ideal for an on the go breakfast snack when time is against you.
Go ahead and try these delicious, hearty muffins. Best served straight out of the oven with some butter.
This is my one way to make butternut taste even better by adding some extra ingredients. I’ve seen this done with sweet potatoes and adapted it to butternut squash.
These are my absolute favorite cookies of ALL TIME. Whenever I make these I think of my childhood days and Christmas holidays. These are one of the few recipes my mom made and I think the first cookies I’ve made as well.
Mayonnaise, is the latest challenge in my culinary adventures.
I have been wanting to make this for a while now and I finally tried it and here is the result. This is my second attempt and both times its been a success. This recipe is very sour because of the amount of lemon juice, but I love the lemony taste. Added to just cooked pasta you hardly taste it, but if its too sour just substitute some of the the lemon juice with water.
I totally love working in my kitchen and trying new things. This week’s challenge… home made mayonnaise!!! I love mayo with everything… yes… I am one of those… ? Anyway. For this meal I cut the butternut into strips and fried them in about a teaspoon of canola oil. Once fried I sprinkled it with mixed herbs. They taste amazing. You can even leave them slightly crunchy. Delish.
I am not a big lover of eggs, but when I do eat them I like to go all out. This week I wanted to make myself a light lunch and decided on a poached egg. I love these as they are quicker to make than hard boiled eggs and not as oily as scrambled eggs or fried eggs.
