One winter, I was able to escape to the Southern Hemisphere to visit a friend in Chile. After a tiresome plane ride, my friend picked me up and we hit the streets of Santiago. The sun was hot and the jet lag was setting in, so we stopped for one of Chile’s favorite treats: mote con huesillos. After we ordered, two cups were filled with cooked wheat berries, dried peaches and finally an icy sweet liquid steeped in peaches, sugar, cinnamon and orange. Standing there, under the hot afternoon sun and drenched in sweat from a day of exploring, it was a most welcome treat that reminded me of one of the reasons I love traveling.

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.
One of my favourite memories of drinking Mulled wine was at the Christmas markets in and around Frankfurt. Although it was bitterly cold there was a lovely smell of spicy warming, wine infused with the cinnamon and cloves. As well as other delicious foods that were being served at the markets.
For the Global cuisine challenge
Ever since I can remember, I've been fascinated by the diversity of culture, language and people groups on our planet. When I joined an international humanitarian aid organization, one of my colleagues became like a sister to me in a short amount of time. An American, her family migrated from Chennai, India when she was young. On one assignment, we were relocated to Uganda due to regional unrest where we were living. We searched high and low to drum up the ingredients to make her family's version of Masala chai, a treat from the daily realities of our working environment . I love the mix of spices, sweetness, and creamy milk taste, drinking it hot especially at breakfast.
This cake is a very fond memory of mine and it is also a local speciality from where I grew up, in the south west of Germany. I tried to translate its name „Kirschplotzer“ and I hope it conveys what it is: a juicy fruitiness combined with cloves and cinnamon that add a mysterious hint of christmas to the late spring season when cherries are abundant and everyone who owns a tree is trying to pack as many as possible into this wonderful recipe – I hope someone tries to bake it!
