Every once in a while the universe has a way of saying it might be time to slow down. Some times it is a gentle nudge and other times it is a full on slap you in the face kinda way. When you have that time, movies seem to be the comfort for many. And now with so many movies streaming online, you can watch them in the comfort of your own home. But maybe you still want the movie theatre snacks. How about a Movie Night Charcuterie Board. Like a wine and cheese board (although that would still be top on my list), but with movie snacks instead.
Charcuterie boards are made up of a variety of different foods, all on one plate or board. Charcuterie is the art of prepping and assembling cured meats. The word originates from France and is translated to Pork Butcher Shop. But today we use the word loosely and we can assemble anything on a board or plate to eat and make it a charcuterie.
With the current happenings in the world right now, I felt a little stuck for what to post on the blog. Dani and I spent some time talking about how, in times like this, humans seek comfort – often from food. So today, I bring you my 10 most requested recipes.
These are recipes that I consistently get asked for and that I have either modified for my family, or sometimes just make straight from the cookbook.
Some are healthy, some are not. But they are my most requested from friends and family – which generally means they are a hit!
When possible, I have included links to these recipes.
Fun fact about Danni..I am not really a dessert person. I would pass on the sweets for a salty chip any day. Although if that dessert happens to be Creme Brulee, then bring it on. So as St. Patrick’s Day approaches, I was trying to think of a green food, that I would love with out the green food colouring. So why not a Matcha Creme Brulee dessert. Yum!
You would really be surprised at how easy this dessert is to make. With a name like ‘Creme Brulee’ (in my french accent), you would think it is difficult, but not so.
