Ok, I know Turkey day is just right around the corner, so who’s thinking about tacos? The answer, my husband. Any day that ends in Y is Taco Day for him. He could seriously eat tacos / burritos every single day and be happy about it. I even tried calling his ‘bluff’ on that statement and made a batch of Homemade Flour Tortillas and then made him burritos for 7 days straight for dinner. And by the end of it, he was sad we were out of tortillas.
Snacks! Ahhh sweet, salty, crunchy, crispy, chewy, easy to pop in your mouth, finger food deliciousness. I. Love. Snacks. But buying the bags, boxes, or cans these snacks come in at the store, well, they’re filled with a bunch of un-pronouceable unnecessary ingredients. That’s why I’m bringing you the ultimate round up of round ups: 32 Snacks From Scratch!
I’m re-posting this recipe today because not only is Peanut Butter a staple food that should be in every good American’s pantry, but it’s also the best introduction From Scratch condiment. It’s only 4 ingredients, is ridiculously easy, but will still have your friends saying, “Wow, you made this from scratch?!” To which you can coyly answer, “Oh yeah, it’s actually really easy,” ‘Cause it is!
There are some things that you just cannot say no to. Seriously, no matter the day, time, or star alignment, it is impossible to say no to a fresh out of the oven cinnamon roll. How hard is it to walk by the Cinnabon in the mall? It’s torture. But these cinnamon rolls, not only are they homemade and from scratch, but they’re made with our sourdough starter, Herman, and they’re topped with candied walnuts and a delicious sweet frosting. Dare I say, significantly better than any cinnamon roll you’ll find in a mall. ‘Cause really, isn’t homemade always better?
Soup Season is here! Also known as boot season, also known as big cozy sweater season, also known as the season I usually gain 5-10 lbs because I begin living in tights with winter dresses / skirts and avoiding buttoning pants so I can live in happy cozy comfort food denial. Like rich winter soups.
Well, apparently I’m on a sweet tooth kick. But trust me, my husband is not complaining. He came home the other night with a peppermint patty that he had succumbed to in the grocery store line, which immediately made me want to make them from scratch!
