Craving by Ree

We found something neat to do with tasty food so we wanted to show it for you! Enjoy!

I’ve been in Colorado with my family this week, and we’ve had a wonderful time together. The only thing about family trips to Colorado, however, is that due to the absence of pots and pans and a pantry full of staples, I don’t get to do a lot of cooking. On one hand, the break is kind of nice; on the other hand, I miss being able to spend time in the kitchen making the things I’m craving.

And then eating the things I’m craving. (The eating part is kind of key.)

And speaking of that…here are some things I’ve been wanting this week! Some of these are oldies-but-goodies you may never have seen before!

comfortComfort Meatballs. They aren’t fancy, but man…they are good for the soul.

fancyFancy Macaroni. Goes with steak, goes with a salad, goes with an appetite. Truly a treat!

4835843705_abf1ff7779_bPasta with Pancetta and Leeks. I have had a serious hankering for this over the past few days. I blame skiing. I need carbs!

quesadillasQuesadillas de Camarones. I blame skiing. I need cheese!

tacos1My Brother’s Chicken Tacos. If you’ve never tried these, you gotta. Just lay newspapers all over your whole house first.

tpw_82341Pasta with Whiskey, Wine and Mushrooms. This is simple and glorious!

5278973957_3f9f9a21c2_o1Pizza with fig, prosciutto, and arugula. My word, I love this pizza. Haven’t had it in awhile!

granolabars1I know this sounds funny, but one of the first things I’m going to make when I get back is a big batch of granola bars. I’ve had some ideas for different variations on my original ones—the mountains do that to a person—and I’m ready to go for it.

8377655803_708755f55f_zSunday Night Stew. Of all the things I’ve been craving this week, this one’s at the top. And it’s ironic, considering I made it just a few days before we left on our trip! I guess I just didn’t get quite enough.

Enjoy your kitchens! I’ll be ready to get home and enjoy mine. 🙂
