Thanksgiving just passed us by and I’m sure there was a lot of tradition and innovation in all of your kitchens. Our kitchen was more of a collaboration than usual. The reason I say that is because when I was little it was basically my mom cooking. Then when I learned how to cook and learned that I enjoyed cooking, I took over. My mom would step in from time to time to answer a question or two but she very gladly handed it over to me. One of the dishes I did own, however, was the cranberry sauce. Continue reading
This year, we are pleased to share this post with all the Nutty Food Lover readers our Go-To post for Roasting a Turkey. Over the course of years, both Seth and us (Helga and Kitty) started our own food blogs – based in Guatemala, and often shared tips and recipes on our Twitter accounts or Facebook pages.
The Foodies’ Kitchen is a blog that not only helps us to broaden our recipe book but also share all the recipes (along with some of our own!) with all the foodies from around the world. We believe that you do not need expensive or sophisticated ingredients to create a great dish, so what you will find in our blog are recipes that we have tested in our kitchens which we have collected from food magazines, TV shows, food websites, cookbooks, and even our own original concoctions.
We have recipes that range from quick and easy for when you have 30 minutes (and sometimes less) to get food on the table, to fantastic meals for that special dinner, healthy and not so healthy… but delicious recipes.
We hope that you enjoy this post which includes general guidelines for roasting a turkey which we got from Williams-Sonoma and Epicurious’ websites. We’ve added some of our own comments as well.
Part of being on a budget means not going out to eat. I have acknowledged the fact and have focused on cooking. So why no cooking posts? Mostly because I completely forgot that I had a camera to take the pictures with since I used to do it with my iPhone which I no longer have. So after a beautiful and meditative walk with my wife in a Lancaster park yesterday, I decided to take some great food pictures. What better recipe to start with than my blackened cod (though today we substituted for another white fish).
So part of being on a budget means cooking at home and since I’ve been home quite a bit more recently I was able to make one of my favorites: Risotto. This rice dish is made with arborio rice and requires quite a bit of attention. The first thing I did was fry up the rice with some great olive oil.
I should probably start this off with a warning: this is not the quickest recipe in the world but is great for those times when you really want to put together an amazing meal that takes more time than effort.
It’s a great to be back in the groove of cooking again! For supper, and possibly straining the bounds of our diet, I decided to make a Spanish tortilla (a Spanish style omelette). We really like it because it’s tasty, satisfying, quick and easy to make and it just tastes so good. Don’t sweat, don’t fret, I’m here to guide you step by step. First peel a russet potato (that’s the baking kind) and cut it into cubes. Pour about 2 cm of olive oil and fry the potatoes. You’ll know they’re ready when the turn a delicious golden brown.
So it feels like forever since my last post. We’ve had one computer die on us, another one refuse to revive and thankfully I have my super secret backup which is dragging me towards the light. Dice we’re on a budget lockdown, we’ve been eating at home more and more so today I have a few really easy and delicious recipes for ya!
So as I mentioned a few days ago, we decided to start cooking more and eating out less. So I’ve really started having a chance to cook a lot more than I had. With that in mind I took my Christmas gift certificate from my SIL Katherine and took a look around House & Green for some new stuff for my kitchen. Continue reading
