Four Fantastic Julia Child Recipes

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

On what would have been her 105th birthday, we have selected four fantastic recipes from Julia Child herself that definitely warrant space in your recipe box. Take a look below.

Potato & Leek Soup

Enamel Recipe Box

The smooth and creamy consistency of this soup would make a great first course during a dinner party, or a light lunch at home.

Ratatouille

Julia Child’s ratatouille is hearty and delicious, and tastes great freshly made or the day after!

Pâte a Brioche

Light and sweet and rich; you won’t want to ever be without this Brioche recipe.

Apricot Sherbet

Since it is summer after all, we had to include a cool and tasty dessert. While this sherbert recipe does have a long prep time (it needs to be almost frozen, after all), it is so worth it.

Classic Grilled Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

National Grilled Cheese Day

One of the oldest and simplest recipes in the book: The Grilled Cheese Sandwich. Since it’s National Grilled Cheese Day, here is a standard, easy-to-follow recipe with suggestions for adding flavor, a kick or enhanced creaminess to your grilled cheese.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 2 slices Texas toast, or your favorite bread
    (to make one sandwich)
  • 3 slices American cheese

Directions:

  1. Place a medium frying pan over medium heat on a cooktop.
  2. While frying pan is warming, spread half of the butter on one side of one slice of bread, place butter side down in pan.
  3. Layer slices of cheese on the bread in the pan; spread remaining butter on remaining slice of bread and place on top of cheese, butter side up.
  4. Cook on medium heat for about five minutes, flip. If bread starts to burn, lower heat and continue to cook until cheese is melted.
  5. Serve with hot sauce, ranch dressing, a favorite soup or with tomatoes and enjoy!

Easter Recipes

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

Easter is less than a week away, and whether you’re planning breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or dessert we have ideas for all (just in case you need some). Most are recipes we have included here on the blog, but we’ve also added a couple that we’ve found from other bloggers ready to make Easter a deliciously successful day. Enjoy!

Red Velvet WaffleBreakfast and Brunch

Our classic Waffle Recipe makes for an excellent breakfast and brunch item, especially since you can make it your own with toppings, flavored syrups and so much more. We also have a gluten-free recipe so all of your guests can indulge in a deliciously sweet and satisfying breakfast, and don’t forget about our cheerful and indulgent Red Velvet Waffle recipe for a little something extra.

Easter Ham

Lunch and Dinner

One of our favorite casserole dishes is the Ranch Potato Bake with Cheese. A creamy dish full of flavor, and complementary of your Easter ham and other holiday dishes. This Slow Cooker Ham from No. 2 Pencil is almost irresistible, although you can never go wrong with a classic Glazed Pineapple Ham.

We will always recommend a standard dinner roll for either lunch or dinner, although making them look like bunnies, shown here, is a cute touch for an Easter meal.

Easter Egg Chocolate Covered Strawberries Recipe via JoyfulHealthyEatsDessert and Sweets

Think colorful, fun and sweet for your Easter desserts, like chocolate cake with bunny and garden themed adornments or these cute Easter Egg Chocolate Covered Strawberries from Joyful Healthy Eats. If you are looking for an all-in-one mix and recipe, our Lemon Dessert Bread is a crowd favorite for Easter and every occasion.

Easter Champagne Cocktail: Raspberry Lemonade Champagne

We know beverages may be a big part of your day, so besides tea and coffee, try a new lemonade, flavored orange juices, or

mix one part raspberry lemonade and three parts champagne

and toast to the holiday and your loved ones.
