Thai Red Curry Turkey

Thai Red Curry Turkey Legs

I don’t always shop in what we in the US would consider a grocery store, but when I do I can’t help but be surprised at how much turkey is for sale. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan, it just surprises me.  Oddly, I’ve never seen my in-laws cooking with turkey so either it hasn’t really caught on, or they’re just not big fans. I have seen many really creative cuts that I’ve not encountered in the US.  I think the most ingenious is the “osso bucco” cut (yes, they really call it that). Turkey legs are really…

Sweet Chicken Tajine from Curious Cuisiniere

Sweet Chicken Tajine from Curious Cuisiniere

Today I’m welcoming guest blogger, and fellow Wisconsinite Sarah of Curious Cuisiniere, who cooks, photographs, and writes the recipes that appear on her blog, while her husband (like mine!) gets to weigh in on taste.  This was their first time trying Moroccan food and I’m so happy to find out they loved it! Truly, one of the greatest joys that has come from blogging is introducing the food I love to new people. I hope you enjoy their experience and recipe!  I’m so excited to be here guest posting for Amanda today! Now, I have to be honest here, Moroccan…

Moroccan Kefta and Eggs Tagine

Moroccan Kefta and Eggs Tagine

The blogging community is really amazing.  Over the past five years I have met so many wonderful people through our mutual shared interests.  When I began to prepare for our relocation, I knew that I had to make plans for my blog too, as I’m not sure how long it will be until we have an internet connection nor when our boxes (with all my kitchen things!) will arrive.  Thankfully several bloggers have come to my rescue to provide some guest posts until I am able to get back into the swing of things.  Today I am excited to welcome…

CARROT CHICKPEA SALAD

Moroccan Carrot, Chickpea, Dried Fruit and Almond Salad from Paula of Vintage Kitchen Notes

I’m so happy to welcome Paula of Vintage Kitchen Notes as a guest blogger today.  Paula is one of the uber-talented bloggers I’ve gotten to know through #SundaySupper and a fellow international blogger. Her pictures alone make me want to climb through the screen and into her kitchen. Also, she’s located in Argentina, one of the South American destinations I’m dying to visit, so I guess crawling through the screen might not be such a bad idea? To find more of her great recipes you can connect with Paula on her blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.   Hello from the…

East German Goulash

East German Goulash with Caramelized Onions

I’m so happy today to be guest posting for Beate at The Not So Cheesy Kitchen. She and I met through #SundaySupper and I’ve enjoyed reading her blog ever since. Today I’m sharing a recipe for goulash. After high school, I spent some time in Dresden, the most beautiful city in Germany (my opinion of course!), and formerly a part of East Germany. I have very strong memories of eating goulash with a dumpling, though have found this dumpling impossible to recreate. Instead, I’ve just re-made the goulash pairing it with rice instead. This recipe is gluten free and dairy…

Thai Red Curry Pakora

Vegetarian Thai Red Curry Pakora

My friend Aimee, who blogs at Goa Getter, lives in Hyderabad, India and I am incredibly jealous of her food adventures. Late one night (thanks to a 10 1/2 hr time difference) we were talking about food – go figure. She was telling me all about the different delicious-already-made food she could find by just going outside and around in her neighborhood. The next day I made a 5 course Indian meal because I couldn’t get it out of my head. I didn’t always like Indian food. In fact I’m still intimidated by a lot of curries and other dishes,…

Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Easy Chicken and Dumplings

Soup is a hard sell in our house. But thick, creamy stews, well they get eaten up right away.  Chicken and dumplings is not a meal I grew up with but my sister first made for us about a year ago.  I love it, my kids love it, even MarocBaba loves it. Summer in the Midwest is humid and oppressive at times.  We wait months and months (sometimes 8 or more!) for the sun to finally break through and warm things up. Some nights the humidity lingers making your clothes stick to your back and your tongue thick in your…
