Pão de Queijo

Greetings from Brasil! I arrived in February and will be spending the next year in Lavras, Minas Gerais teaching English at Universidade Federal de Lavras, and doing research on food security! Importantly, I’m researching food! And guess what, we’ve got some tasty treats from this wonderfully warm country. This pão de queijo is a naturally gluten-free…

Bacon, Brie, and Basil Breakfast Galette

Every time I come home for a trip, my mom loves it when I make my galette recipe. It’s dynamic, makes great desserts, appetizers, and here, breakfasts, and you can throw in whatever you like! This time, we just had too much fun with alliteration and decided to use bacon, brie, and basil. It was…

Green Eggs and Ham

Everyone loves Dr. Seuss. Everyone loves green eggs and ham. If you’ve tried them at least. This recipe necessitates pesto. That’s how my eggs are green.
