Global Eats: Hungary

For the second meal for my Global Eats project, I traveled to the Central European country of Hungary.  I brought the other two members of the Hungry Trio along with me. Hungarian cuisine is quintessential Central European food.  The focus is on meats and cheeses.  Starches like potatoes and noodles are also commonly found.  Of…

Egg White Breakfast Casserole

I have never been that great at eating breakfast.  I typically do actually have breakfast (except for most weekends when I wake up just before lunch).  I just don’t make very good choices when it comes to breakfast.  I would swing between extremes of eating too little or eating too much.  I would often eat…

Cranberry sauce is so versatile.  Not…

Friendsgiving 2018

Friendsgiving is a popular term that popped up around a decade ago.  Of course, the idea of sharing a Thanksgiving meal with friends goes back much further than that, but the term seems to have been coined around then.  I imagine that the earlier end of the Millennial generation were responsible for this fad term….
