pack a punch. [mini potato, pepper & chorizo empanadas]

May 10th, 2021 by | comments

These mini empanadas are addicting. And since they’re so small, you can eat as many as you want…right? The filling packs a punch with the kick of the United Harvest chorizo and is delicious inside the crispy, yet pillowy fried dough. These make for a perfect appetizer, side dish, or entrée. Serve alongside your sauce of choice, but I prefer and recommend a vinegar-based dipping sauce!

wingin’ it. [creamy potato salad]

Some of my favorite days are spent in the kitchen cooking with my mom. Last year, we were preparing for a summer picnic and tasked with making a potato salad to accompany the rest of the BBQ food.

Consequently, I decided to make a homemade potato soup that I hoped would be much more enjoyable to eat—and that it was.

My mom and I used a few recipes as a starting point and ended up making up our own. What was even better was that we were able to use ingredients already in the pantry/fridge, instead of purchasing unnecessary ingredients at the market. Our soup was absolutely delicious—and I say was because we polished the leftovers off last night. The subtle saltiness of the potatoes complimented the hint of sweetness from the sherry brilliantly. My dad couldn’t get enough of the soup, and that definitely says something when he is a fan.
