Savory Dutch Baby

Bacon, cheddar cheese, and m... Bacon, cheddar cheese, and mushrooms.
Seattle has a restaurant popular for serving a dish called a "Dutch baby." They are basically egg pancakes and look like a cross between crepes and omelettes. Mine is not as fancy looking as Seattle's Tilikum place. I will have to work on the recipe and bake temperature to get more of a brown crust.

Nonetheless, this dutch baby in my mini cast iron skillet (5-inch skillet) hit the spot this Friday morning. I am particularly fond of the bacon and cheddar flavor combo!

Taco Tuesday

Today is Taco Tuesday! Here... Today is Taco Tuesday! Here are some tasty ground turkey tacos.
I've never intentionally celebrated this weekly tradition, but today is Tuesday and I did make tacos. I enjoyed all 3 tacos for just 500 calories.

In an effort to improve my cooking skills and save money, I've been challenging myself to prepare most of my meals from basic ingredients instead of purchasing canned or pre-packaged foods.

I made the corn tortillas with Maseca corn flour, Jacobsen's onion salt, and fresh garlic that I shaved with a microplane and added to the dough. The salsa was created with fresh farmer's market tomatoes, peppers, and onions that I roasted, peeled, and then blended with Jacobsen garlic salt and freshly squeezed lime juice. Each taco is filled with ground turkey seasoned with Jacobsen's garlic salt and freshly squeezed lime juice. Lastly, the cheese is Seattle's famous Beecher's Flagship cheese that I grated myself.

The end result is an explosion of flavor thanks to seasoning with garlic, lime, and salt at every stage: I added garlic and salt to the tortillas, salsa, and turkey, plus I squeezed fresh lime juice into the salsa and ground turkey to create a complementary flavor profile. The garlic and lime work with the tomato, turkey, pepper, and corn flavors without overpowering.

I'd say that the hard work is definitely worth it for delicious tacos! Food doesn't get any better than being fresh, nutritious, and flavorful.
