Chicken Fricassee

Well, well, well…just a couple days ago, I flew in under the wire of Cook the Books Club, so now it’s time to do the same thing with the Food n Flix pick!

But this one wasn’t my fault…ish.

Balsamic-Thyme Roasted Carrots

Well, here we are again, the end of the month and just barely flying in with a recipe under the wire.  This time, I just barely finished with Cook the Books Club book in time.

This month's book pick was The Food Explorer: The True Adventures of the Globe-Trotting Botanist Who Transformed What America Eats by Daniel Stone.

I started the book in plenty of time, and it was interesting.  Yet, it was a slog at the same time.  It was almost like reading a textbook - fascinating, but so slow and dry inbetween!

I loved learning about David Fairchild and all of the other great minds of the time.  According to the book (and the ostentatiously long subtitle), David Fairchild is responsible for the introduction of literally thousands of plants (many of them edible) to the United States in the late 1800's and early 1900's.

Egyptian Ghorayebah Cookies #eattheworld

It’s time for our taste buds to travel the world with the Eat the World Recipe Challenge and today we’re heading to Egypt!

Funny story…

I’ve actually had this recipe sitting in the “to be blogged” pile for almost two years!  Yes, you read that correctly.

So back in December 2017, Dude had to do a Christmas around the World report.  Plus he decided that he needed to being cookies when he gave his report (and why not?)  Dude had chosen Egypt as his Christmas around the world country, so it was up to me to find an Egyptian Christmas cookie to make.

So why didn’t I post them?  Well, that year I made then right before Christmas and Christmastime is insanely busy, so I never got to it.  Then last year, it slipped my mind.  And now we’re at today when we’re traveling to Egypt and I totally have a recipe that I never blogged!

Back to School Pencil Cupcakes

Who starts school tomorrow??

Now that I have one in middle school (omg – middle school – how the heck did that happen?!?) and one in elementary, we have different start times!

Elementary started before Labor Day and middle starts after, so I’m on both sides!  Lately I’ve been inundated with school open houses (meet the teacher), back to school potlucks, orientations, and registrations!  This is the first time my kiddoes have been on two different schools, and let me to tell you – it’s intense!  Last week, we had middle school open house and elementary back to school picnic/potluck on consecutive nights.  Being the baker I am, it is expected that I bring cupcakes to the potluck.

I was nine kinds of exhausted, and kinda wanted to phone it in and just bake some cupcakes and squeeze some frosting on top, but I just couldn’t do it!

So I spent open house at one school googling easy back to school cupcakes.  Instead of getting creative with the cupcake flavor, I went with a creative cupcake topper instead!
