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.

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

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

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!
