As much as I love cookies, cake and ice cream, a smart chica can’t survive on sweets alone. That’s probably why some of the savory recipes I have recently featured here have been getting lots of amor lately. Here are some of my favorites.
Pernil (or roast pork shoulder) – enjoy this Latin delicacy the next time you’re in the mood for some down home roll up your sleeves good cooking. As far as I’m concerned, in my kitchen, it doesn’t get better than this. And the secret to my pernil is this seasoning blend, handed down to me by my mami.
To keep it authentic, have some Tostones (double fried green plantains) to go along with your pernil.
If Italian is more your idea of comfort food, then look no further than this Pasta Bolognese. It’s a labor of love to make but will give you that warm and fuzzy feeling inside like nothing else can.
Or try this 4-ingredient Tamari Roasted Salmon for something a bit more figure friendly. Healthy never tasted so good.
If you still want to bake, I’ve go two show stoppers for you. First, this Potato, Onion and Gruyere Galette. It’s potatoes, caramelized onions, gruyere cheese and pie crust – what’s not to love about that.
There’s also these Cheddar Black Pepper Biscuits. Because who doesn’t love a warm, fresh baked biscuit. They may not look like a show stopper. But they surely pack a flavor punch.
