I was so grateful that family came to visit for Thanksgiving. I was super sick, but Liam definitely needed some distraction and play time with cousins. My brother-in-law Thomas came with his wife, Cheryl, and their two kids Daniela (7) and Joseph (4.) What a big help everyone was the entire week. I felt like the worst host in the universe, but Thanksgiving went off without a hitch thanks to Cheryl! It was the perfect way to spend the holiday.

Hey there! What do you put on your ice cream? I found this recipe and it had my name written all over it: vanilla ice cream with sea salt, lemon zest, and olive oil… ! Yes, olive oil. I was reading the comments below the recipe on The Kitchn and people were adding their two cents about strange and amazing things to put on their ice cream: scotch and ground black pepper (amazing…), balsamic vinegar and nuts… I know, it’s almost too much to handle. I love this kind of unexpected food combination.

Full recipe:

Olive Oil, Lemon & Sea Salt Sundaes
serves 4

 

1 pint vanilla ice cream
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
zest from 1 organic lemon
1/4 teaspoon coarse, flakey sea salt

Place one scoop of ice cream in the bottom of a jar, or ice cream dish. Tamp down the ice cream gently with a cocktail muddler or the back of a spoon. Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon olive oil on top. Add a few pinches lemon zest and a tiny pinch of salt. Repeat these layers two more times. Serve immediately, or freeze until ready to serve.

 

I’m deviating from my usual trinity of chocolate, cheese, and bacon. But I have to honor the little Latina girl that lives inside me. She’s taking Latin ballroom dancing, too… No joke:) This Mexican Street Corn recipe looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it. What could be better than cilantro, lime juice, and chili powder?

Mexican Street Corn:

Ingredients

4 large ears corn

butter
sea or kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 + 1/2 cups Queso Fresco, crumbled or Cotija or Parmesan cheese, grated
4 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced
4 teaspoons chile powder
1 lime, cut into four wedges

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Brush corn lightly with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast 20-25 minutes. Alternately you can grill or boil it.
  2. Working with one ear of corn at time brush with mayonnaise, sprinkle with cheese, cilantro and chile powder, pressing it onto the corn to help it stick. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve with lime wedges.

Is it crazy how quickly a week goes by?! Judging by my past Sunday posts you can pretty much bet on my recipes containing and one of the following: bacon, cheese, or chocolate.

These little bacon and egg cups make me happy. There are a few too many recipe steps for my liking, but when bacon is involved I’ll do it.

Recipe from: The Girl Who Ate Everything

 

Bacon and Egg Toast Cups:

Ingredients:
6 slices of bacon, uncooked or precooked
6 slices of bread
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 eggs
Salt and pepper

Instructions:
Preheat the oven to 400° F. Spray large muffin pan with cooking spray. \
In a frying pan, cook bacon about 3-5 minutes, until partially cooked but not completely crispy (if using precooked bacon skip this step). Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Cut out circles (about 3 1/2 inches) in each piece of bread using a cookie cutter or a drinking glass turned upside down.

Press the bread rounds into the greased muffin wells. Curl a piece of bacon around the periphery of each piece of bread, positioning it between the bread and the muffin tin to help keep it in position. This can be a little tricky until you get the hang of it. Sprinkle a small amount of shredded cheese in the center of each piece of bread. Crack one egg over each piece of bread being careful not to break the yolks. You may not want to use all of the egg white. If you do you may need to adjust the cooking time to a little longer.

Once all the bread pieces have been topped with eggs, bake until eggs are cooked through to your liking (about 15 minutes for me) and bacon is crispy. Run a knife around the edge of each muffin well and pop the egg cups out. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.

So I guess it’s safe to say I like all things cheese, bacon, and chocolate. I hope I never have a heart condition…

Anyway, this recipe from How Sweet It Is looks to DIE for and I cannot wait to try it. If you were looking for something amazing to bake this Sunday, this is your recipe! Have a wonderful day!

Hi there!

I love Sundays and I love to cook a big meal on Sundays. Usually I roast a chicken, make mashed potatoes, roast some vegetables, and make some kind of fruit tart. Yes, I spend most of the day in the kitchen, but I think it’s a great tradition to start with a family. I would love for my son to grow up looking forward to big Sunday dinners.

From this Sunday on I will be sharing a recipe with you to enjoy. It could be something I’ve made on my own, or something I’d love to try in the future. Let’s make Sundays special:)

This Sunday’s recipe is for fresh baked cinnamon rolls from A Dash of Sass. What is better in the morning than fresh cinnamon rolls with frosting?! Really… Enjoy!
