These days simple do-able recipes with a high pay off have been my mainstay. Do Homemade Canadian Donair qualify? I think so. And while these sandwiches might look restaurant quality (and the idea DID come from one, Occo Kitchen & Bar, I saw on Diner’s, Drive-Ins & Dives and here’s the video) these lovely Canadian versions of the Gyro are much easier than you’d guess,. especially if you view it as a mostly a “make ahead” meal. Gotta love that!
The other day I made the most marvelous (if I do say so myself, and I do, I do) Bahn Mi Street Tacos. If you haven’t seen that post, take a peek! One of the defining elements in that recipe is these Quick Vietnamese Pickled Carrots, a little sweet with tangy undertones from the vinegar, and they’re a little addictive!
I’ve had Feijoada on my mind for a long time. I made Feijoada years ago but it was one of those “Hey, it’s not you, it’s me” kind of things. It was ok, but not great. It wasn’t until I tasted a lot more Brazilian food that I “got” not just the flavor but the spirit of the dish and what a difference that has made. But guess what? This time I did it in my Instant Pot. And it was easy! So here, for your dining pleasure is Instant Pot Brazilian Feijoada!
I gotta say, I’m pretty much all over the place, today. Yesterday it was a down-home dish of Easy Cheesy Chili Mac and today? Today, I’m going to Bulgaria, in my mind at least, and serving up Bulgarian Cheese Pot – Сирене по шопски в гювече. If you are from Bulgaria or know Bulgarian, please feel free to correct my translation if it isn’t correct! Google translation has not always done me right!
I have a new favorite “Salsa”, Roasted Sweet Corn Salsa. This salsa is like everything good in the world all combined into one beautiful, corny, creamy, cheesy, spicy dip.
