Spinach and Feta Empanadas

I was cleaning out my freezer the other day, and came across empanada wrappers that I had bought with the intention of making spinach and feta empanadas.  I was overly ambitious that day, and put them aside for another occasion. I totally forgot about them until now. So now I’m ready to make the spinach…

Empanadas

Over the weekend my friend asked me to make empanadas. He told me about the ones his mom used to make and the ones he would by on the street while traveling in South America.  He wasn’t exactly sure about the type of cheese that was used (I guessed), but he did have strong opinions…

French Frychos

A few weeks ago I tried tater tot nachos for the first time.  I literally thought I died and gone to heaven.  There were so many of my favorite things in one bowl.  Tater tots, beans, sour cream, cheese, and bacon. It was like magic.  When I came home and told Miles about it, he…

But back…

Croissants with Prosciutto and Gruyere

Croissants made with bread flour. Croissants made with all-purpose flour. When I first saw this recipe for prosciutto and Gruyère croissants, my mouth watered and I struggled over whether or not to make them. I remember making them once in school. I took two days and about 2 pounds of butter. When I saw how…

Maple Bacon Popcorn

  I made my favorite grilled cheese for dinner last night (dry rubbed black forest bacon with gruyere), and somehow had a few strips of bacon left over. I was going to wrap them up and put them in the fridge for breakfast, but a few hours later I was in the mood for a…
