Cheesy Parmesan Spoon Bread

One of the things I love most about Southern food is that it draws flavor inspiration from cultures all around the world, yet still maintains a unique identity of its own. It truly is a melting pot of tastes—hot, sticky, spicy and sweet—all boxed up in one.

Take spoon bread for example, a quintessential down-home dish. Its name may not turn any heads (or open any mouths), but one bite is enough to convert even the biggest of skeptics. Spoon bread, in fact, has a pretty distinguished pedigree if you ask me. It’s part French soufflé, part English Yorkshire pudding, but once you add the cornmeal, it’s all Southern.

If you still can’t wrap your head around this old-fashioned recipe, just imagine a rich, custardy version of cornbread worthy of scooping up with a spoon. Or better yet, picture the lightest, fluffiest grits casserole you’ve ever had. I mean, what’s not to like?

Sifted: Christmas Doughnuts, Fool Proof Dinner + More

  1. These Christmas wreath doughnuts by Leanne Bakes are just as pleasing on your taste buds as they are on the eyes.
  2. Sippity Sup says you can’t screw up braised short ribs. So go ahead and test that theory with his recipe for Cabernet braised short ribs with swiss chard and orecchiette.
  3. If you love nutella, we’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll be a fan of The Chocolate Hog’s hazelnut hot chocolate.
  4. Know what you’re making for Christmas dinner, but not for supper tonight? This skillet baked ziti by Tracey’s Culinary Adventures is easy to whip together and absolutely delicious.
  5. A Couple Cooks’ recipe for peppermint ice cream and hot chocolate affogato is a wintry delight perfect for the holiday season.

A Danish Dessert: Æbleskivers

If you were to cross a pancake with a popover, you’d get an Æbleskiver. I love eating these traditional Danish pancakes —  they aren’t too sweet, have a fluffy texture and are usually served with a variety of jams. I think they would make the perfect breakfast food, served with hot chocolate or coffee. In Denmark, though, they are usually enjoyed around Christmastime paired with glogg, a Scandinavian mulled wine.

Most of you might remember Candace Cameron Bure from her days as DJ Tanner on Full House — at least that’s how I remember her. These days she’s a best-selling author, mother and avid philanthropist. This holiday season, she stars in The Heart of Christmas, which premiered on GMC on Saturday, Dec. 4. Her New York Times best-seller, Reshaping It All, chronicles her lifelong struggle with food and the physical and spiritual changes that she underwent to make the public transformation from chubby child star to one of the hottest moms in Hollywood . Candace is an avid supporter of many causes, such as Skip1.org, Compassion International, Sheraton House and Children’s Hunger Fund, and she’s also the national ambassador for National House of Hope.

Thirsty Thursday: Jamie Oliver’s Christmas Spirit Cocktail

Christmas Spirit Cocktail

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. Last time we toasted with a Ginger Cranberry Cocktail; this week we’re back with something even better suited for the holidays.

Festive little guys, few foods pack as much holiday cheer as pomegranate seeds. Each bite bursts with sweet pomegranate juice — bright red and beaming — imbuing dishes and drinks with a distinctly Christmas-time feel. It’s no wonder then that Jamie Oliver chose them to star in his Christmas Spirit Cocktail. Simple and easy, all it takes is ice cold tequila (preferably silver), a frosty (shot) glass and a handful of pomegranate seeds. Just make sure you’ve crunched the pomegranate seeds before downing your drink. Bottoms up, folks.
