I don’t claim to be an incredible cook or a foodie. I like to cook, and I try to cook as often as I can. The other day Bethany and I finally whipped up a spinach-artichoke dip using GH’s recipe. Yuuuummmmyyy. I added some parmesan cheese and upped the garlic, btw.
But what I really love are super easy recipes for yummy food to enjoy and make for my friends and family. I’m starting with brunch because sometimes I can’t decide between breakfast and lunch – sweet and savory. And I just hosted a brunch for a lovely group of friends and it was a lovely way to “build community,” as one of my friends would later say, from morning to afternoon and talk about books, marriage, children, gardening and goals.
We have no food allergies in this home, thank goodness! But, I don’t own a stand mixer or food processor. I know. You’re surprised because apparently I look like someone who would own those two kitchen appliances. Well, I registered for them when I got married, but no luck. Breadmakers were really big in the early 90s so my friends chipped in for one of those and a full set of everyday dishes for eight. (I still break out the breadmaker every now and then, and I still use those everyday dishes every day!) So, no recipes that require a stand mixer or food processor.
Remember. The easier and yummier the better. Links are fine. Ready? Set? Brunch.
