Hi everyone! I’m Katharina from Katharina’s Food Adventures. I recently had the honor of being asked by Angharad herself if I could write up a guest post. Of course I could! Now what could I write about? I didn’t want to bore you all, so I thought I’d get a little creative and maybe inspire some of you to do the same. Here goes!
Since I can remember I’ve always been asking myself “what if”. In fact, when I was younger, people called me the “what if girl”. I’m not sure if it was a good thing back then, but I carried that title proudly. Still living up to it today, when it’s time to eat my mind races through flavors, ingredients, and the ever-present question, “what if”. What could I add to really make this meal pop?
Rather than making this grilled cheese with cheddar alone, I added some mango chutney. If you’ve been reading my blog then you know that this is my favorite grilled cheese!
One day my mom really wanted me to make huevos ranchers while I was visiting. (Hey mom shouldn’t you be cooking for me?! Just kidding!) I only had a couple ingredients on hand so I improvised. Since we didn’t have tortillas I baked some homemade polenta to a crisp. So if you don’t have something on hand you can always pull a MacGyver.
Now because it’s always a great idea to end on a sweet note, I’ll leave you all with this to feast your eyes on:
I wrote this in one of my posts a long time ago, but I think it’s very appropriate to how I cook: “Just think about what flavors you want to come out, and taste as you go.” Try it out folks; think of all the possibilities! Who knows what wonderful concoctions you will whip up. Maybe you’ll end up making the best BBQ sauce ever because you put a dash of creativity in it; do I hear the word patent? Just follow the motto from the movie Fried Green Tomatoes, “the secret of life? The secret’s in the sauce.”
