Mushroom picking in the forest is a favorite outdoor activity in Poland. My grandmother and her sisters loved picking mushrooms here, too. I enjoy hunting for mushrooms but would love it even more if only I could teach my dogs to sniff out the mushrooms, ala truffle pigs. My aunt started making this recipe 30 or 40 years ago. I don't know where the recipe originated. If anyone recognizes it, please share the source!
GLOBAL CUISINE: Memories of this dish were brought to mind after all the olive harvesting going on in our village last week I can’t quite get this recipe exactly right, but if make it & we eat it outside on a nice summer day, it can feel pretty darn close to being in Italy😋
Southern Fried Apples for the Global Cuisine Challenge.
This winter recipe comes from my part of the world, the mountains of the Southern USA. These sweet fried apples are an easy and comforting dish to whip up on a cold evening, and the cinnamon gives them a warm holiday flavor. Our family loves to eat them as a side dish to pork, roasted vegetables, or bacon and eggs. I created this illustrated recipe with watercolor, oil pastels, colored pencil, and digital media. The title lettering was created by my mom Shelley in watercolor, ink, and digital media, and was inspired by the iconic print shop Hatch in Nashville, TN.
When I was a kid, I loved all the Christmas smells and scents coming from the kitchen! From the french toast that we would eat for breakfast to the delicious roasted chicken, not the boiled cabbages (ugh), the house smelled like cinnamon, spices, and pine. I called my mom to ask for her Drunken Pears recipe because the Holidays are coming and I want to fill my house with those smells from my childhood. Except that now I might eat the pears instead of just drinking the hot syrup, like when I was kid :D
For the Global cuisine challenge.
I am very fond of South Indian cooking! It has such a great variety, many different vegetables are used, as well as many spices – and most of all because it is cooked with coconut oil and freshly grated coconut. So here is one of my favorite curries, acutally very simple to make and sooo tasty.
Miso-glazed dishes are called Dengaku in Japanese. This classic Japanese side dish, Nasu(eggplant) Dengaku is very popular especially this time of year since eggplant is seen as a tasty autumn delicacy in Japan. The juicy eggplant and rich miso flavor really go well with each other!
I love the peanut butter so much that I decided to make a healthier version, as tasty as the normal one.
I love the natural flavors of the food without oils, sugar and added dressing and this simple recipe was a discovery for me.
Peanuts, like all the trail mix, have their own natural oil and it doesn't need to add anything to get a creamy and delicious result :)
And if that's not enough, the greediest palates can always add a little maple syrup and a pinch of salt... et voilà, a creamy appetite to everybody!
Favourite Memory: Diwali is almost around the corner so I would like to share once of the recipes that my mother made during this festival. Ofcourse there where so many other dishes that were made around this time of the year but Rasmalai would always be me and my brothers favourite treat. During Diwali we all used to cook as a family, everyone had a task to do and then by the time we were done there was a pleasure in enjoying the food that we made (as kids we thought we made everything but of course that wasn’t true haha) we made so many kinds of desserts, snacks and food items it’s crazy to think how we pulled that.
All of out family friends know these are one of my favourite meals. One time I was visiting Corinthia with my dad we had them three days in a row. Everyone made them because they wanted me to be happy. I was really happy. My dad appreciated eating the same thing three days in a row less than me.
