It's National Pigs-in-a-Blanket Day!

When was the last time you had some pigs in a blanket?...




Pigs in a blanket refers to a variety of different sausage-based foods in the United States, United Kingdom, Denmark, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Russia, Canada, and Japan. Many are large, but other recipes call for a dish that is small in size and can be eaten in one or two bites. For this reason, they are usually served as an appetizer or hors d'oeuvre or are accompanied by other dishes in the 'main course' section of a meal.
In the West, especially in the United States and Canada, the bite-sized variety of pig in a blanket is a common hors d'oeuvre served at cocktail parties and is often accompanied by a mustard or aioli dipping sauce.



Pigs in a blanket are usually different from sausage rolls, which are a larger, more filling item served for breakfast and lunch in parts of Europe, Australia, and, more rarely, the United States and Canada.

Tips 'n Tricks(#8): 6 Great TURKEY-cooking TIPS worth knowing!

So you'd think by now one would know how to cook the perfect turkey with all the info out there, well guess what? I don't. I still dry it out and I can never seem to get the skin crispy enough. Once, I even baked a turkey upside down (purely by accident) and it actually turned out pretty moist but it looked atrocious! But that's a whole other story.

Now, I've decided to take the time to put together a few tips to make things easier because it's not just about how to cook a turkey, but how to cook a turkey safely!




Now let's hope I can get it right once and for all! If you have any tips let me know!

TOAST TOPPER #3 - Nutella with Sliced (or Mashed) Bananas... and Toasted Walnuts

Because it's not just about peanut butter and jam anymore...

Topped my toast today with:
  • Nutella
  • Sliced bananas (or mashed)
  • Toasted walnuts



For this toast topper, I wanted to try the famous Nutella-with-banana combination but unfortunately my bananas were a wee bit too ripe. Then all of a sudden a light bulb went off in my head; 'Hey, why not mush it all together then pipe (or spread) over my Nutella?!' So that's what  I did.
