My grandparents gave me a beautiful Canon DSLR camera on the day that I graduated from college. I jumped with excitement, and then proceeded to use it on automatic for a few years. When I started blogging, I realized it would be good to actually learn how this thing works so that I could be more in control. I signed up for an online course, and then read/watched the lessons a few times. For me, I'm a visual learner, and studying something very technical at home was a challenge. I was able to pick up some basic terms (ISO, f-stop) and tricks (natural light is always best) but then I got sidetracked.
I chose chicken with mustard sauce for my Parisian dinner because I love the complexity of the thick mustard sauce, and the subtle tartness that crème fraîche provides. When planning parties, I limit the time-consuming dishes to one or two, max. I want the evening to feel special, but I don't want to be so exhausted by the time people come over that I'm ready for bed. And while this chicken require a few extra steps, you will be repaid handsomely for your efforts.
As young children, we are taught to believe that hard work will be rewarded in the long run. Reap, and you shall sow. Put all of your effort into what you're doing, and somehow, someway you will succeed. I believe this principle with all of my heart. However, when planning a party this excellent life philosophy can be gently set aside.
Typically, when I make salads at home, they are busy. They have many ingredients, textures, and complex dressings. But not this guy, oh no. This salad is a lesson in simplicity.
My mom loved sgushenka (sweetened condensed milk) and so we would eat it right out of the can- sorry, dentists! This recipe for flan uses 3 types of milk, and has never failed me. It requires little notice, money, or expertise. And it's the perfect ending to a Cinco de Mayo party! If you make it in a deep pie pan, you won't even have to stress about flipping it.
These micheladas make beer bearable, even enjoyable, for anyone. If you like bloody marys you'll love micheladas, mainly because you can drink more of them. They are thirst quenching, savory, satisfying, refreshing, I can go on.
Matzoh Brei is squishy, salty, eggy matzoh cake and I have been hooked ever since I first tried it. It is the only other way I like matzoh, besides when it's smothered in cream cheese. It's beauty and secret lies in the form.
Two secret ingredients make these baked chicken cutlets crispy + delicious...
When entertaining, it's not convenient to be standing around making lattes for everyone, foaming milk a la minute.
