What a beautiful surprise to find out that the first prompt was inspired by the lovely Shell over at Things I Can't Say! #BONUS It's an inquiry of the top ten things that make you smile. Perfect! I love this idea!
And then I thought. And thought. And viola! Novel idea from me ... wait for it ...
So, you know how people (ehem, who? me?) tend to share pictures of what they are eating and/or cooking and/or want to be eating and/or drinking on all aspects of social media?
Well, I decided to do a culinary documentation here, and dig through Facebook and Instagram and find you some of my favorite culinary treats. Maybe it's because The Next Food Network Star is over and I'm feeling a hole in my life? Or something. But here goes!
Dad's Chicken Soup
And you can't have chicken soup without ...
Whoop whoop! From scratch! Go, me!
Fried Green Tomatoes
Kale chips with a little parmesan cheese. Ah! YUM!
Marinara sauce from scratch.
It's a big deal, people. I used real garlic cloves.
Real ones! Woo hoo!
Black and White Cookie.
New York City style.
Only I haven't made one yet.
This one's pretty cute, though, right?
I'm gonna stop there.
Anyway, I think this goes to show you for sure that I'm a Jewish Southern girl from New Yawk, all the way. Hushpuppies, fried green tomatoes and chicken soup with matzo balls and homemade marinara on the same list? That's me. In a nutshell.
Hope you enjoyed my masterpiece collection. Stick with me. I'm sure to have more to share in the coming months. I'm really working at cooking from scratch more often, so maybe next time ALL of my pictures will contain food made by me ... what? You didn't think I made that cookie, did you?
