Rosh Hashana

Happy late Jewish New Year! I hope this year of 5775 has been good to you already. 🙂

If you’re reading this, you likely have some idea of Jewish religion or at least the holidays and traditions related to them. If not, then you should know Rosh Hashana is the Jewish New Year. Rosh Hashana has some awesome food traditions- like apples and honey (which, if I may say, the BEST fruit combination in the world) and round challah. So for Rosh Hashana, my family was treated with an amazing meal consisting of potato latkes (what’s a Jewish holiday without them?), apples and honey, and some meat. Let’s focus on those latkes though. Latkes- some of the most beautiful creations in the world. Salty, potato pancakes that are irresistable, and usually gone before dinner (not even kidding-this has happened a few times).

Ah, latkes. They may be the death of me…

This time we made fresh latkes out of potatoes, an onion, some salt and some oatmeal. That’s really it, it is one of the easiest pancake recipes I make. 🙂

Sourdough Toast topped with Sauteed Mushrooms and Scrambled Eggs

Hello! I felt like making a savory breakfast this morning, so I decided to make some sauteed mushrooms with eggs and toast. Of course, it had have all of the flavors wrapped all together, so I put them all together in this eye-pleasing (and tummy-pleasing) dish. The only change I would have to this is to add some green, likely spinach because I love the mushroom-spinach pairing but possibly kale(?). Feel free to share your thoughts.

How to Fold a Burrito

Hello! How are you today? I know it’s been forever since I posted but I’m working on drafting all of the many (many) foods I have created. Instead of a recipe, you get this handy guide of how to fold a burrito. I know, a recipe is far cooler but unfortunately all of you will have to wait. Anyhow, I decided to make this post after a friend who had checked out my blog, informed me she attempted to fold a buritto and didn’t feel it turned out as well as it could have. Because of this, I took pictures of each step of the way I fold a burrito (which proved to be difficult). For these pictures, I made a Hamburger Breakfast Burrito.

Hamburger Breakfast Burrito

Hello! Yesterday I posted Cheese-filled Hamburger Sliders. Well, if you have leftovers… You could always eat it as is, make a breakfast burger out of it or you could attempt a meat version of my Vegetable Scramble. You could use this as a topper for toasted bread, in a breakfast burrito, or even alone. The ideas are endless.

You may be asking, “How?” Elementary, my dear watson, elementary.

All you have to do is crumble leftover hamburger and just make the scramble as usual, adding the meat in with the vegetables. If you would not like to click my lovely link above, the full instructions are below:

Dexter-themed Strawberry Crepes

Hello! How has your Mother’s day been going? This morning I made a Dexter-themed Mother’s day brunch. Each year for Mother’s day I have a fandom theme. Previously I’ve done Nightmare Before Christmas and even Alice in Wonderland, but this year I chose to do Dexter. For those of you who have no idea what Dexter is, it is a brilliant TV show about a serial killer killing other serial killers. I highly recommend it. Anyhow, each year I make a menu and my mother picks exactly what she feels like off the menu and I make it for her.

This year’s menu:
