As an adult I still love DIY projects. Saying something is DIY is just a grown up version of arts and crafts. Yesterday I invited a few friends over, and we spent our Sunday dying Easter eggs – it was a fun, mindless activity and I loved getting to feel like a kid again. Whether you’re an adult, a kid or somewhere in between this spring craft is fun for the whole family.
Steelhead is a great alternative to salmon because it tastes very similar (just a bit more mild) and it’s a more sustainable option. It’s an easy swap and can be found at many grocery stores or fish markets - plus it has a gorgeous bright color.
Diner-style pancakes are those “big as a plate” type pancakes that are delivered to the table when you order a “short stack” at a diner. The pancakes are thin and cakey – kept moist from the buttermilk.
This chili con carne builds smoky heat from the roasted and reconstituted guajillo, ancho and arbol chilies -- the base of the deep reddish/ brown sauce (also known as “bowl of red” because of the signature color). The goal of Texas chili is to develop a rich and hearty stew starting with beef and chilies and coax complex flavors out of those few simple ingredients.
