Truth prevails - the motto of the Czech republic. The truth is that I don't know much about this European nation.

It would take a little … Continue reading Cooking the Bible: Cooking Genesis: The Book of Beginnings
This was a fun and easy dinner for us to prepare and enjoy together. Hart really likes bell peppers so he thoroughly appreciated our variation on this nation's dish. Growing up in England, I was very much so not exposed to Mexican food. We would make chicken fajitas at home using a popular brand kit … Continue reading Honoring the food of my readers: Mexican Chiles en Nogada
I went for the runnier version of nshima. My kids definitely enjoyed it, and it's a quick, easy, and cheap breakfast. We sprinkled a little brown sugar on ours as a treat, but you don't have to. This reminded me a little bit of the blue corn mush that my Hopi friends would make when … Continue reading Honoring the food of my readers: Zambian Breakfast Nshima
