Do you go through cocktail phases? For a while, I was really obsessed with any cocktails made with sparkling wine—like this white sangria. Then it was my orange whiskey sour. And now, well, it’s margaritas baby. I can’t stop making them. Like, I have to really force myself to only mixing up this margarita recipe on the weekend.
5 Ingredient Recipes
So…how’s everyone doing? It’s the beginning of a new month and I’m starting off strong with (yet again) another post about breakfast food. Cue Demi Lovato’s “Sorry Not Sorry” because I couldn’t help but post these sourdough crepes immediately. And y’all are going to thank me for this recipe. Did I scarf down an entire crepe as I was making the others? Maybe. Just maybe.
When my mom brought home a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store, we always knew what was coming next: zucchini fritters. It’s one of those easy sides she loved throwing together when she needed to get dinner on the table quickly, and while we tried to leave them to enjoy with the meal, it was hard to not gobble them up while cooking them. They are just that good.
After posting my orange whiskey sour on the blog, I very quickly learned something: ya’ll like to drink! That cocktail recipe is probably one of my most popular on the blog right now, and since posting it I’ve had numerous people reach out to me about making more simple cocktail recipes. One person even asked for a spring cocktail that would be great for Easter, so I figured I would make one of my favorites: heavenly lemonade!
I have been completely overwhelmed by news of the pandemic lately. Anyone else? It probably doesn’t help that I actually work in journalism, but still, I needed a break. So teaching a class on how to make gnocchi online seemed like a way to blow off steam. I called it “Cooking with Kes” and wow, what a blast we had.
Things are pretty scary right now, I get it. I know the news can be tiring and Twitter is relentless (hot tip, just stay off Twitter right now), and I want to virtually comfort you with some chicken. I know, emotions shouldn’t be attached to food, I’m aware of that. But a good meal can be comforting in a way that words can’t, and this three-ingredient baked pesto chicken will soothe your soul.
