There has been an ongoing battle in my household for a few years now. I must tell you, this post is hotly contested in my household. Samuel and I are at a strong disagreement over what “Indian tacos” are actually called. I have grown up calling and hearing these fried breads Indian tacos. Samuel, on the other hand, has grown up knowing these as Navajo tacos. I have never, ever heard Indian tacos called Navajo tacos. So we continually bicker over what these should actually be called. I’ve heard others just refer to them as fry bread. No matter the name, I’ve come up with an easy and delicious way to make them.
I have come across a few recipes which stop me in my tracks. This was one such recipe. I was entranced by the cheesy look of this flatbread. Now, this isn’t a traditional flatbread. It is made from puff pastry, so it is incredibly flaky and buttery. It’s also topped with some delicious things. So, if you are searching for a new twist on pizza and flatbread, you have stumbled across the perfect recipe.
Confession time. I love green beans. Now this may not seem like a confession. However, I must admit I love canned green beans. You know, those soggy, lifeless green beans? Yeah, I love those. I know, they aren’t even really flavorful. So, I wanted to explore the green bean more. I mean, I love canned green beans, so fresh ones had to be even better right? Right. Fresh green beans are 100% more delicious than the canned ones. I know, I know. You can say, “I told you so,” now.
Recently a posted about how much I love chocolate desserts. However, Samuel generally prefers less-sweet desserts with fruit in them. Sounds easy right? Wrong. He’s pretty picky, whether he admits it or not. So, when I decided to make a delicious, apple crisp for dessert, I was surprised when Samuel said he wasn’t really a crisp fan. Well, I was determined to change his mind by making a perfect crisp.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Instead of posting a recipe related to something romantic or something Valentine-y, I promised you a post on breadsticks. Now, this may not seem like a post fit for Valentine’s Day. However, these breadsticks are the Crock Pot Pot Pie Soup’s soul mate. These breadsticks are the soup’s one true love. And I love these breadsticks. What could be better than a post based on a love between foods, two foods I happen to love together?
One of the best parts of eating at Mexican restaurants is the free chips and salsa. I will never be able to turn down chips and salsa. However, the chips at the restaurants aren’t all that great for you. They are often fried. So, I wanted to implement my oven fried foods idea on the tortilla chip. I have to tell you, these were better than the restaurant tortilla chips and way better than the bagged chips at the store.
This is the first post of the week featuring some delicious food I made for Super Bowl Sunday. Who says Super Bowl food has to be fattening, fried, or full of calories? Not me. My football snacks are low in calorie and full of flavor. Not only are these snacks and foods perfect for football, they are great any time of the year.
A few weeks ago Samuel and I were watching a food show, big surprise as I love food shows. Well, this time the feature of the show was empanadas. I’ll preface this post by saying I’ve never made empanadas before. After watching the show, it was kindly suggested I try to make empanadas sometime soon. So I did some research on empanandas.
This post fits well in my unintended series of oven fried foods. I didn’t know I would have so many posts about oven fried foods, but here I am. Only this time, I’ve been making this recipe for a few years. This is one of the cheapest and easiest side dishes to create. It is also low calorie and very filling. These oven fries are a cherished recipe of mine, and I would love to share!
Before turning to a lower calorie lifestyle, I was a connoisseur of fried foods. I still occasionally have fried food here or there, but I am not eating as much fried food as I once was. I’ll admit, the lack of fried foods has left a deep fryer shaped hole in my heart. So, I decided to make an oven fried version of one of the best fried foods ever invented.
