You're Invited: Marvel-ous Sips and Nibbles #FandomFoodies #MarvelUniverseEats


I am hosting a month-long homage to the Marvel Universe, in conjunction with Fandom Foodies, as we prepare for the release of Avengers: Endgame near the end of this month. April 26th, in case you didn't know.

I used to just say that I liked the Marvel movies because I am a permanent resident of Testosterone Land...with two teenage sons and a husband. But, it's more than that. I actually really love the story-telling in Marvel movies. It's hard to pick a favorite, really.

So, I'm inviting you to watch - or rewatch as the case may be - any of the Marvel movies and whip up something inspired.

How to Participate
Check the announcement post to see what the theme entails. Done. You're already here! If you’re already a fan of the Marvel movies and have immediate inspiration, great! If not, watch/read/play relevant things to drum up inspiration for a recipe.

Cook up something or make a recipe! Foods can be taken directly from a Marvel movie or even just loosely inspired. Do you have something you think a specific character would love to eat? Is there a food in the show you’ve always wanted to try in real life? As long as it’s related to the theme, it’s fair game. Everything else is up to you. Get creative!

Post your food photo or recipe on your blog or on social media. Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, or a blog… it’s all good. Be sure to use both the #fandomfoodies tag and #MarvelUniverseEats for this month’s theme, and @ Fandom Foodies if possible! Each submission should include a link to Fandom Foodies, a link to the hosting blog, and the month’s hashtag. If you post a recipe on your own blog, submit it to the link-up.

Make Something MARVEL-ous
Back in 2017, I posted A Mutated Kyushiki + Ginger-Miso Petrale inspired by Wolverine.

 

Maybe you'll be inspired by some Hulk-hued cocktails such as my Kale Margarita or Captain America-colored Chia Pudding.


How about a cocktail that Black Widow would be proud to make...



...or a salad with scarlet pomegranate arils? Will you join me in my April quest to share Marvel-ous Sips and Nibbles? I hope so and look forward to what inspires you.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
