Recipe Roundup

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is a pretty common Friday night at our house: cooking with my brother in our messy kitchen with my son strapped to me. Nothing could make me happier. 😀

It’s been a loooooong time since I’ve done a recipe roundup – Thanksgiving was the last one, I believe. Having a baby kicked my mom gear into overdrive (yes, having three younger siblings I already had a mom gear in place) and I can not stay out of the kitchen. I’ve been super busy baking and cooking since our son was born and I’ve been venturing further and further out of my tried and true comfort zone. Maybe binge watching The Great British Baking Show has something to do with it… read the post

I live for food holidays. Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas – my moms’ family prepares the same thing each holiday and it’s my favorite food ever. If I could eat the food we eat those three holidays every day, I’d be one happy girl! Here are some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes. Get ready to gobble ’til you wobble!

Swiss Corn Bake
Now, I have only made this once because in our family everyone has a designated dish to prepare and bring – mine is deviled eggs and a dessert and my moms’ is Swiss Corn Bake. I live for my little mamas’ corn bake. Swiss cheese, onions, corn and bread crumbs – what could possibly be tastier? This recipe is almost exactly my moms, except she uses 3/4 cup swiss cheese in the mixture and 3/4 cup swiss cheese in the breadcrumb topping – everything else is identical.

Two three of my favorite things to do are: cook, bake and eat. Sounds to me like a match made in the kitchen. Cheeseball status: elevated.

Everyone always asks for my recipes, quickly followed by “where do you find your recipes”. To address this, every month I’ll be doing a roundup of my favorite dishes I prepared the previous month. Sweets, savouries, beverages – anything goes. Join me on my culinary adventures and perhaps you’ll pick up a new recipe on your way. (And now I sound like I’m in my own show on Food Network.) 😀
