Nothing has changed in the last two weeks when it comes to the hunger inducing posts from fellow bloggers (much to the detriment of my waistline). The ohhh so delicious photos and awe inspiring recipes continue to force me into exercise…of running to the kitchen. Running to see if I have the necessary ingredients or even suitable substitutions to pull off a yummy concoction. One of my shout outs goes out to a blogger who posted a recipe that I made and was digging into within 4 hours of her post…and it was bread…and that allowed for rising time!
Julie of Hostess at Heart shared a recipe for English Muffin Bread that absolutely taunted my mind. Initially, I intended to make it a weekend project. Then the snow started flying, putting my plans of venturing out on hold. Seemed like the perfect time to make bread to me…and I had all of the necessary ingredients on hand. I have a lot of food loves I consider comfort foods, and warm bread from the oven is at the top of that list. I wasn’t disappointed one iota…it was superb! Visit Julie and witness all of the glory she shares…there’s no doubt in my mind that she is truly a Hostess at Heart!
When lunch hunger pangs set in one day recently, a post from Lina at Strictly Delicious tapped away at my brain. It was for Paleo Cranberry & Beef Stuffed Acorn Squash. Her photos were gorgeous! My sad attempt at photography of my own creation doesn’t do her dish justice…click on over to see why her dish called out to me! The stuffed acorn was packed with great flavors, was filling and satisfying. Lina proves once again that she won’t let her allergies take away taste from her kitchen creations, for they are indeed strictly delicious!
A few posts ago I shared a recipe for Toffee Bit Cheesecake I prepared in my pressure cooker. It was through that post I met Chef Amy of Come Cook With Me. Amy also has an electric pressure cooker and we had a conversation about said cookers. I started to explore her archived posts and I found a heavenly Macaroni and Cheese…pressure cooked. Remembering me mentioning comfort foods? Mac n’Cheese just so happens to numero uno on my list. I had to make her recipe! It seems I forgot to take a photo of the plated macaroni and cheese, so please forgive my “in the pot” photo. I’m so glad my electric pressure cooker helped me connect and cook with a new friend. Head on over to Amy’s and you can cook with her too!
