It’s salad week in @thekitchensinkblog kitchen and I’m starting off with the most loved, go-to summer bbq and picnic salad ...... potato salad. I’m sure you were thinking that I would post a big green salad or a Caprese salad. Not to worry, those are coming up this week as well.
I’ve moved on from creamy, mayonnaisey (is this even a word) potato salads. This is the Best Potato Salad Ever! I love the flavours of the Dijon mustard and white balsamic vinegar based dressing poured over warm potatoes, along with kalamata olives, tomatoes and fresh herbs making this a deliciously different style of potato salad.
The recipe is in the archives of my blog.
We interrupt this regular scheduled Saturday to bring you ... #nationalmacaroniandcheeseday.
Yup it is...
For a brief description of all of these awesome variations, visit my stories.
And now back to Saturday.
Doing laundry and ...
As I do more laundry, nudists seem less crazy to me.
French fries showing up all over my feed for #nationalfrenchfryday.
It’s Fryday and National French Fry Day, so I pulled this one from the archives. Oven baked crispy sweet potato fries with my go-to #PCBlackLabel habanero aioli from @preschoice (not sponsored) because I love that stuff!
so long as i’m reminiscing about sweet treats, i will return to this strawberry almond tea cake. i absolutely love almonds, but there is a fine line to tread when using almond extract in desserts. too little, and each bite can fall flat. too much, and it’s overpowering to the point of being perfume-y. but when you get it just right, it’s floral and sweet and heady and just right paired with the summer’s best strawberries in a moist and delectable cake. recipe again by @bromabakery .
One of the things I love to eat the most are crispy, chewy cookies fresh out of the oven, with a glass of cold milk. Yummm. The blog has been updated with these browned butter malted milk chocolate and macadamia cookies. Go check it out! (Also, swipe to see the cookie dunking!)
This peach cobbler checks all the boxes for a perfect summer dessert and it’s up on the blog! Sweet peaches mixed with spicy ginger topped with a warming gingerbread biscuit. You could sub in blueberries or apples and it would be equally delicious. Plus cobbler is so easy to make. I’m not a huge fan of rolling out dough, so dropping blobs of biscuit dough on top and having it come out just right works perfectly for me. Click the link in my bio to check it out —>
A friend asked me what fruits I used for topping on my Almond & Lemon/Orange Cake. I told her all the fruits but when I got to the paraguayos...cricketsHow in the world do you pronounce paraguayo??
I am utterly convinced there is nothing more wonderful than potatoes covered in cheese + bacon. Recipe coming soon!
