The sandwich is an art form. Thought to be invented in the 1700’s, this simple combination of two slices of bread and plenty of flavorful fillings is a great way to showcase your individuality. Unfortunately, sandwiches don’t tend to have complete nutrition information on them. As a result, it’s hard to figure out how many calories there are in a turkey sandwich.
Are you a spicy crunchy shrimp roll fan? Because I was never really a raw fish enthusiast, up until I tried, the Crunchy Sushi roll. I first came across this Japan-inspired delicacy when I was traveling for work in London.
Celiac disease is pretty scary, but the scariest part about it is that it routinely goes undiagnosed. While some cases manifest with obvious symptoms, many people go through their entire lives without realizing that their intestines are being damaged by the gluten in their diets. This makes it all the more important to understand what gluten is, how it’s made, and what types of foods are gluten-free. Questions like “does pudding have gluten?” can make a huge difference in your health.
If you are the type of person who is interested in trivia, or maybe you need to help your kid make something for school, you might have this question: are there any foods that start with the letter X? The answer is a resounding yes, but they are probably foods that you haven’t heard of before now, especially if you aren’t a very adventurous eater. Foods that begin with the letter X are typically from other cultures that use the letter more often.
Cecamariti pasta is intimidating, I will admit. Even pronouncing it is something that scared me off. However, I was able to overcome my fear, and so will you.
It’s always difficult to adapt carb-heavy recipes to be keto, paleo, or Atkins friendly. With tortillas in particular, I had trouble keeping the dough from tearing for many months. Eventually, I found the right combination of ingredients and preparation to make an even, flexible dough.
I have become a big fan of using the carne picada sold in our local butcher shop for taco night. Marinated, thinly sliced beef, ready to cook that makes extraordinarily tasty tacos. Buying this product is convenient and gets a weeknight dinner on the table in a jiffy. However, I got to thinking. What exactly is this carne picada? Why can’t I make my own? And what other delicious dinners can I create using it?
Growing up, one of my favorite things to eat at my grandparent’s house when I would visit was butterscotch pudding. Of course, I could eat it any time, but the flavor reminded me of my grandparents because they were always offering me butterscotch candies to suck on. When I got older, I wanted to recreate that taste, so I started searching for a butterscotch cinnamon pie recipe that I could make into my own. I found several variations of this type of pie over the years, so I thought that I’d share a few of my favorite ones with you.
Living in California while the rest of my family lives in Texas is hard, so I always look forward to going home for Thanksgiving. This year was no different, but when I arrived, I was greeted by strange smells from inside my home. I always looked forward to helping my mother make the last minute preparations, but this year she firmly refused to let me anywhere near the kitchen. At a loss, I wandered into the computer room. Sitting down, what to my wondering eyes would appear but a page with a turkey stuffed with an octopus.
