Spanish Tortilla Slice

Spanish Tortilla

Surprisingly, food is a big part of my life.  (I know, complete shocker, right?!) Technically, it’s a big part of everyone’s life, as we need substance to fuel our bodies.  However, I’m not just talking about a food for livelihood’s sake.  I’m talking about the more adventurous side of food.  The exploratory side, as it were.  Which is why living in Spain was such an amazing experience! 

Besides the culture and amazing sites, food was such a mind blowing experience when I lived there.  With jam√≥n iberico, cochinillo (baby pig) and a variety of tapas that would make your mouth salivate so much it would make Pavlov proud, it’s not hard to understand how someone could grow a spirit of culinary curiosity.  That’s why I decided to tackle one recipe that I always loved ordering when I went out: Spanish Tortilla, also known as Tortilla Espanola! (Spanish accent required.) Continue reading

It’s that time of the year again, where your calendar is filling up with BBQs and fun plans with friends and family!  With that, comes the slight pressure of figuring out what dish to bring.  Ahh!  Memorial Day passed recently and I was trying to figure out what dish to bring to a friend’s BBQ when I had the urge to make fresh salsa.  I scoured through my fridge and found all of the ingredients readily available, so that’s what I’m going to share with you all today! ūüôā Continue reading

5-Minute Artisan Bread

I have a confession…  The last few weeks I’ve been obsessed with watching the Great British Baking Show on Netflix.  Not just the actual show though, but the Masterclass series where the judges, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, bake their interpretations of the challenges from the show.  (Didn’t know there was a Masterclass series, eh?  Well, you’re welcome.)

To be honest, it was something that I originally started to help pass the time while recovering, however it’s actually SUPER fascinating!  All of those baked cakes, torts and breads. (Drool…) It actually reinvigorated my love of baking and got me itching to make a homemade artisan bread!  Which is the recipe I bring to you all today!  Continue reading
