Recipe: Chili Fries

Take french fries (or really, in this case roasted potatoes) to the next level by adding chili on top of it. This comes together surprisingly quickly and can be topped with anything from cheese to jalapenos and ranch if that’s what floats your boat.

Recipe: Cranberry and Apple Stuffed Turkey Breast

Okay, so this is not your everyday meal but it also isn’t all that difficult providing that you aren’t completely hopeless at pounding out turkey breast and tying things up with string. While it does have a few minutes of hands on work, after that the meal goes in the oven for a majority of…

Recipe: Ratatouille Risotto

This is one of those “best of both worlds” type recipes. Combining all my favorite things about ratatouille and risotto until they meld into one extra delicious food is a feat. This is a bit busy as a recipe but the end result is well worth the effort and it certainly makes sure you’ll get…

Recipe: Gingerbread Cookies

These were so good that I absolutely could not believe it. Please run, don’t walk to make these gingerbread cookies. The best part about them was that they were so delicious it was difficult to stop eating them and the second best part was that they not only held their shape when they cooked but…

Recipe: Sweet Potato Biscuits

Just a little twist on your every day biscuit. I rolled them out too thin (they don’t puff quite as much as without the potato weighing them down). These were really nice but I couldn’t really taste the sweet potato in them. That’s not necessarily a downside but you might want to experiment with adding…

Recipe: Harira

I ran across this Moroccan soup a few months ago and figured I’d eventually get around to it and now it’s easily one of my favorites. With a hearty tomato and spice base it contains what seems like an overwhelming amount of things (chickpeas, lentils, and a small amount of meat as well) but that…

Recipe: Key Lime Pie

Ringing in the New Year a little late with this sweet recipe. Technically this is just regular lime pie as there aren’t any key limes to be found in Estonia but it still counts I think. This recipe comes together with very little effort and is a nice not too sweet dessert for any occasion.

Recipe: Mushroom Hand Pies

These were originally supposed to be empanadas but they got a little confused along the way. They turned out delicious enough that I just called them hand pies and think you should make them anyway.

Recipe: Potato Croquette

If you ever wanted to eat mashed potatoes as a finger food: this is it. These are perfectly creamy and deliciously cheese filled but in the future I might actually not shred the cheese but instead place a small cube inside each ball just for a next texture change. To make them much easier to…

Recipe: Turkey Bolognese

This is such a simple sauce but it’s absolutely delicious. Served with a wide noodle to pick up all those nice chunks of turkey (or chicken or beef or whatever ground meat you end up using) and tomato there’s really something truly delicious about taking good food and making a good meal. You can add…
