Grilled Feta

2 comments:

Take a block of feta. Drizzle a little olive oil over the top and spread it out. Add garlic all over the top. Wrap it in foil. Place on the grill until it's nice and hot.


Don't worry, it won't melt. Just be careful it doesn't stick to the foil on the bottom. You may want to put some olive oil down there too just to be safe.

Pickled Onions

No comments:

You need to make these. If you've never had them in some awesome Latin American (or any other) cooking, you've been missing out. You'll soon be putting these on just about every darn thing you make. Burger, pizza, tacos, you name it. Enjoy!

Burger Buns

2 comments:

There's something truly satisfying about making things from scratch. Things just seem to taste better and you're happier with the results. Such is the case for these burger buns.


They may feel heavy and dense in your hand, but cut them open and splay your burger upon it, and you will realize these are the perfect burger buns. They do exactly what you would want a bun to do, AND they taste amazing. Enjoy!

Pickled Ginger

Beautifully crunchy, sweet, and spicy. This pickled ginger will have you wondering why you ever bought the pre-made stuff ever again. What's even better is that ginger is great for digestion. Enjoy!

Challah Bread

2 comments:

A wonderful, light, soft, and beautiful challah bread. You will not be able to get enough of this bread. Try it with peanut butter and banana or as french toast.


Challah is easier to braid than you think, and it's even fun! Your mouth will water as it's baking. Enjoy!

Borscht

No comments:

Borscht. Try and say that again. It's not that difficult or anything but there are 5 consonants in a row. That's a lot of consonants with only 1 vowel. Anyway...

Where was I? Right, Borscht! This is some awesome Ukrainian Borscht. Not sure what borscht is? It's a beet soup with a couple other veggies in it. That's what gives it the wonderfully dark red (almost blood-like) color.


We made a couple tweaks on a traditional recipe, and it turned out to be a huge hit! Like the sweet and salty together? Then you'll love this. Enjoy!
