Get a Taste of Peru with Papa a la Huancaína

Papa a la Huancaina recipe

Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite Thanksgiving dishes. Most will be twists on dishes you’ve seen before: stuffing with my favorite fall fruit, brussels sprouts prepared using a new-to-me technique, a cocktail for a crowd, but today I’m bringing you a Peruvian dish that you might not be familiar with. This dish appeared on my Thanksgiving table every single year growing up. My mom, who was born in Peru, treated Thanksgiving as a time to make all of her favorite foods, American and non-American.

Breakfast and a Movie? Try Buttered Popcorn Pancakes

Buttered Popcorn Pancakes recipe

A few weeks ago I was enjoying a late-night marathon of Mind of a Chef (when I definitely should’ve been sleeping), and fell instantly in love with the buttered popcorn grits made by Chef Daniel Patterson. As a person who has popcorn for dinner more than I’d like to admit, it was definitely a mind-blowing moment for me, and I couldn’t wait to experiment with the idea of adding buttered popcorn to everything. If you consume it straight, it tastes like buttered popcorn, but as you add it things like milkshakes (I did this) and pancakes, the flavor becomes a bit more subtle.

Honey Graham Biscotti That Won’t Break Your Teeth

I’m guessing that at least once in your life you’ve had the not-so-awesome pleasure of biting into a slice of rock hard biscotti. You usually fall victim to such a thing at a neighborhood coffee shop, which serves up the “ubiquitous biscotti” half-dipped in chocolate. It’s appealing on the outside but when you bite into it, you realize you may need to take a trip to the dentist.
