Thanksgiving Traditions & Recipes; Like It or Not
When it comes to Thanksgiving, you know right out the gate what your favorite foods were growing up and the ones that grace your "table of giving" today. Almost everyone from a young age remembers that aunt, uncle, cousin, friend or grandparent that made a special Thanksgiving entre or dessert just the way you like it. That being said, you couldn't imagine it being served any other way, or could you?
Stranger Things...Created in the Kitchen
Stranger Things...Created in the Kitchen
"stranger things" referenced here is the out-of-the- ordinary food concoctions we allow to enter our digestive systems. We all have interesting food cravings that others simply don't understand. Some people keep their cards close and don't want others to know about their quirky, not-so-common meal choices. Others have no problem putting their habits and unusual food creations out in public. I lean more towards being "shy" about sharing my crazy food combinations, but luckily, (depending on how you look at it) I'm ready to spill my guts on a few of my edible idiosyncrasies.
Mayonnaise: Friend or Foe?
Mayonnaise: Friend or Foe?
Come on; mayonnaise is a stigma! You're either ostracized for liking it or worshiped for making the most fantastic salad and other recipes with it. For over two decades, up until about 2019, I boycotted mayonnaise like the plague. Initially, it stemmed from food poisoning "I think" I got from a macaroni salad left out too long at a birthday party (the perishable egg theory is accurate). From then on, it was me against mayonnaise! Unless it was used in a particular baked goodie, I happened to master in the mid-90s that family and friends raved about over the years. (I'll say it made the dessert in question very moist...no secrets revealed...yet).
