Let’s catch up over a cup of golden milk!

A warm cup of Turmeric Chestnut Latte or Golden Milk (whatever you wanna call it) is all you need to cozy up this winter season, and to fight against the flu season.

Hello there! Remember me?? I feel like it’s been forever.  The truth is, it’s actually been forever. The last you heard from me was in 2018 and just like that we are in 2019 now. Wow!! I still can’t believe it. I wish you all a very Happy new year. Hope this year is filled with peace, happiness, success and good health and that all your dreams come true. After a lot of contemplation as to what I should start my new year with, I decided to go with this Golden Magic Drink aka Golden Milk (Turmeric Chestnut Latte). I wanted to start my year on a healthy and cozy note with something really bright and colorful. You seriously can’t beat the vibrant and happy golden yellow color of this golden milk (Turmeric Chestnut Latte). 

With the new years, the flu season also starts. Yikes! First, January is the most freezing month, and second, everyone around gets sick. The last thing I want is to be sick again after months of being unwell. For this reason I had to take some measures to prevent us all from getting the flu. In my quest, I learnt that turmeric really helps with that. It is one of those magical spices, that besides adding such a beautiful golden yellow color to any dish, it is packed with a tons of  health benefits. You gotta be careful while handling it though, because you do not want the color all over your clothes and hands as it can be stubborn to remove. It has anti inflammatory properties, contains antioxidants and also helps with neuro and heart functioning. Additionally, it is fat soluble; hence, it’s better to take it with some sort of fat. Milk is fatty and therefore helps with the absorption of the Curcumin present in turmeric. This warm and cozy golden milk (turmeric latte) should be your new favorite hot drink.

Turmeric golden milk.

Turmeric milk is very popular in india, but extremely unpopular among kids. I seriously don’t blame them. I was one of those kids who hated this golden milk growing up. We used to call it Haldi Doodh (Haldi meaning Turmeric in English and doodh is Hindi name for milk). I am pretty sure, most kids in India are forced to have this golden milk, especially during winter months or flu season. If you were to ask me 20 years ago about this milk, I would not even look at it. Turmeric has a very acquired taste and growing up, all I knew was it’s a spice used in savory curries. So having it in milk was a little weird. In addition, the turmeric milk that I used to have was unsweetened, plain milk with just turmeric and sometimes cardamom. So you can imagine the plain taste of turmeric in milk.

Also, in India warm milk is very common. It helps with sleep in the night and really feels soothing and calming. The best way to enjoy it, is by adding some cardamom, saffron, fennel seeds, chopped dates and chopped nuts while boiling. The dates add a subtle sweetness to the milk and nuts give a nice crunch. It’s very common during winter months. Going back to my childhood, I remember most of the elder people drinking this milk in the night before bedtime. Hence, adding these flavors to the Turmeric milk makes it so flavorful and delicious. 

Home away from home.

I never thought that this milk beverage would gain so much popularity. After moving to the US, I heard everyone talking about some Golden Milk. Curious and intrigued, I googled it only to realize it’s that same Haldi doodh from home that is known as Golden Milk here. Same stuff, just different name. So here it is the flavorful and soothing warm milk beverage, that will be your new favorite thing.

Some other great stuff that I experienced after I moved to US are the Tree Chestnuts. Earlier I thought all chestnuts are the same. I loved eating the fruit back home. “But why are they so brown here?” I asked myself when I first saw them. “Oh, may be they are a dried version of the fruit”, I thought. “Then why does it say fresh chestnuts on the bag?” I wondered. Again I googled, (isn’t google the best thing in the world) and realized that these are tree chestnuts, and they are completely different. The tree chestnuts are less sweet and tastes heavenly when roasted. So to add a nutty and wintery flavor to my golden milk (turmeric latte), I decided to add some chestnut puree. For the natural sweetness, dates are amazing and add a delicious flavor. 

Mixin’ it up!

I soaked some dates in little water and added the roasted chestnuts. For the spices I used, fennel, saffron, cardamom, black pepper and cinnamon. Of course there is Turmeric as it won’t be golden milk without this key ingredient. Later everything is pureed to a smooth paste so it dissolves fully in the milk as needed. To get rid of the raw flavor of turmeric, it’s important to boil it nicely in milk. However adding all the spices adds a lot of aroma, and the chestnuts add some nuttiness to the milk. 

To make it vegan, you could totally make it with coconut milk. That will add creaminess and sweetness. You could also make it with almond milk. And that might add to the nuttiness. You can’t find chestnuts, or you want to make it in summer when the chestnuts are not in season; no problem! Just make the regular recipe without chestnuts. Add all the spices in milk, boil it and let steep for 5-10 minutes. Instead of pureeing the dates, you could chop them and boil in the milk and add some chopped almonds. That will give a different texture to the milk.  

Cheers!

So to make the year full of beautiful colorful memories, here it is, the most flavorful and delicious warm milk beverage with the bright, vibrant, and happy color.

Mashed Potatoes with two kinds of cheese? Ummm yes please! For this recipe potatoes are boiled and mashed then you toss in parmesan and mozzarella cheese and bake them until they’re deliciously golden and fluffy. These are perfect for holiday parties and a fun change from the traditional mashed potatoes.

Everyone has had mashed potatoes and gravy but how many of us have tried mashed potatoes with a cheesy Italian flair? They’re deliciously flavorful and oh so comforting!

Plus this is a great recipes to make when you don’t have drippings from a beef or poultry for gravy.

This is one of those homestyle recipes with an exciting makeover people will love!

Ingredients You’ll Need for This Recipe

  • Yellow or russet potatoes
  • Unsalted butter
  • Garlic
  • Whole milk
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Parsley (optional)
  • Salt

How to Make Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 13 by 9-inch baking dish.
  • Place potatoes in a pot and cover with water until potatoes are covered by an inch or two.
  • Bring potatoes to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium low and simmer until very tender when pierced with a fork, about 15 – 25 minutes.
  • Meanwhile melt butter over medium heat. Add garlic and saute 30 seconds, set aside.
  • Drain potatoes, return to pot and mash well.
  • Add butter mixture to potatoes along with, milk mozzarella, 3/4 cup parmesan, and 2 Tbsp parsley. Stir, thin with a little more milk if desired, season with salt to taste as needed.
  • Pour mixture into prepared baking dish, spread into an even layer.
  • Bake in preheated oven 20 minutes, for better browning on top move closer to broiler and broil briefly (1 – 3 minutes.).
  • Garnish with 1/2 Tbsp parsley and serve warm.

Tips for This Recipe

  • This recipe will work great with both yellow (yukon) potatoes or russets so use what you prefer. Yellow are a little creamier and russets are a little starchier.
  • Try not to overwork/over-mix the potatoes or they can turn out gluey.
  • The parsley adds a very light flavor and a nice color but feel free to omit it.
  • The golden brown topping is best achieved by broiling briefly, it’s optional but that golden brown cheesiness is delicious!

Can I Reheat These Potatoes?

I recommend serving this just after preparing for best results.

Have you planned out your Thanksgiving menu yet? This would be the perfect side dish to add to the feast this year!

Turn plain french bread into cheesy, garlicky perfection with this epic Cheesy Garlic Bread. With three kinds of cheese, herbs and tons of garlic, this is the homemade garlic bread you’re going to want to make over and over again.

Homemade Garlic Bread is one of those recipes that everyone seems to know how to make. It’s pretty easy to make a basic garlic bread. I mean, butter, garlic, bread, right? That’s what I used to think…until I started making this Cheesy Garlic Bread.

This is the homemade garlic bread recipe to end all homemade garlic bread recipes.

The easiest garlic bread recipe known to man is basically soft butter, granulated garlic, and bread. This recipe takes that basic principle and kicks it up about 27 notches. There are 6 cloves of fresh garlic mixed with a stick of softened butter. You have to have soft butter. Make sure you take that butter out of the fridge at least an hour before you plan to make this bread. And for the love of all that is good and garlicky, do not microwave that butter.

Are you ready to make the most epic Cheesy Garlic Bread?

So you’ve got 6 cloves of garlic and soft butter. You’re also going to stir in a generous tablespoon of fresh chopped parsley. You could use dried here, but use the same amount. It’s just as much for color as it it for flavor.

Now slather all that buttery goodness on some french bread. I try to get the freshest loaves I can because they just taste better. But even a loaf from the discounted, day-old section will work fine. Slice it in half lengthwise and slather that butter and garlic mixture all over. As Jeff Mauro says, “crust to crust!” You want the butter to reach all of the outside edges. As you can see I didn’t do a very good job.

Next pile on the cheese. We’re using a luscious combination of Mozzarella, Parmesan and sharp cheddar. The Parm and cheddar have a nice sharp bite that compliments the smooth creaminess of the Mozzarella. Sprinkle on a little more parsley for color.

Now bake those lovely loaves in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes, then flip on the broiler (no need to move the rack) and broil for several minutes to get that cheese nice and golden brown. As Anne Burrel says, “brown food tastes good!”

I know, I watch too much Food Network.

But you will forget all about that when you get your grubby little hands on this Cheesy Garlic Bread. And then all will be right with the world again.

Cheesy Garlic Bread

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 8

Serving Size: 8

Cheesy Garlic Bread

Ingredients

1 loaf french bread
1/2 cup butter softened
2 tablespoons chopped parsley divided
5 cloves garlic minced
1 cup fresh grated Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup fresh grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan Cheese

Instructions

  1. Slice French bread loaf in half lengthwise. Place each half, cut side up, on a foil line baking sheet. Set aside.
  2. Stir together softened butter, minced garlic and 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley. Spread evenly on each half of the french bread loaf. In a small bowl combine cheese then sprinkle evenly on top of the bread. Sprinkle remaining parsley even over the cheeses.
  3. Bake in the 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. Turn on the broiler to high, move the rack to the top position, and broil for the last 2-3 minutes until cheese is golden and bubbly. (*The broiling step is optional - you could just let it bake for the 10 minutes and call it good).
  4. Allow bread to cool and cheeses to set for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

An easy and delicious recipe for Broccoli and Cheddar Twice-Baked Potatoes!

I mean… don’t they just look crazy good?! ↓

 

You can try to resist the temptation of comfort food this time of year… or, you can be like me, and just lean on into it. I vote lean. These broccoli and cheddar twice-baked potatoes are just waiting for your embrace. Aside from making you drool, these babies are sure to satisfy any cheesy/carby/cozy food cravings.

 Confession: My first broccoli and cheddar twice-baked potato was from a Wendy’s (drive-thru). Have you ever had one of those? Actually… they may just be broccoli and cheddar baked potatoes. I can’t remember. Point is, they were pretty good, but my homemade version is 1,000,000 times better!

 

  • Creamy
  • Crispy
  • Cheesy
  • Comforting
  • And convenient

Each little potato boat is loaded with silky smooth mashed potatoes, broccoli (for our veggie fix!), and tons of cheesy goodness. These are the best!

 

 

Wondering what the heck a twice-baked potato is? Read on!

Twice-baked potatoes, much like biscotti, require two – almost back to back – baking sessions. Thus, they are “twice-baked”. The first baking session is to soften the potatoes; you’ll need their centers to be soft enough to be easily scooped out.

 

 

 

P.S. This is where things get really delicious. First you mash the scooped out potato with butter…

then you add in Greek yogurt, milk, cheese, broccoli, and spices. ↓ Mmmm!

 

 

 

 

 

The second baking session is to warm the newly stuffed potatoes, crisp up their skins, and melt the magical cheese piled on top.

P.S. I kept these vegetarian, but if you feel inclined to get meaty, go ahead and toss some bacon bits on top of these bad boys. I won’t judge.

So much texture! So much flavor! So much YUM.

 

 

 

 

 

This recipe makes 8 twice-baked potatoes, which is a TON of potato if you’re a smaller household. That said, if you’re serving a crowd or have a wonderfully large family, this recipe can easily be doubled to suit your needs.

Twice-baked potatoes are totally make-ahead friendly!

 

Remember earlier when I said these where convenient? Well here’s why! Twice-baked potatoes can be assembled, stuffed, and stored in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can also individually wrap each potato (minus the cheese) in aluminum foil and pop them in the freezer for up to two months. In my experience, cheese does not hold up well in the freezer, so you’ll want to save that step for baking day. The frozen potatoes will need about 12 hours to thaw before baking, so remember to transfer them from the freezer to the fridge the day before you plan to use them.

 

 

I really, really hope you make these! Paired with a light salad, you’ve got yourself a whole meal. Maybe you can even skip the salad and just eat two potatoes…

Just an idea ?

 

 

 

 

Broccoli and Cheddar Twice-Baked Potatoes

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 20 minutes

Yield: 4 Servings

Serving Size: 4

Broccoli and Cheddar Twice-Baked Potatoes

Ingredients

4 medium russet potatoes, washed well and dried
1 teaspoon olive oil
3 and 1/2 tablespoons salted butter, very soft
1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3/4 teaspoon chives
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dried onion flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 and 1/2 cups cooked broccoli, chopped, divided
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded, divided

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F). Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Place potatoes in a small baking dish and bake for 1 hour, or until soft. Remove from oven and set aside to cool. Once the potatoes are cool enough to safely handle, slice each one in half, lengthwise. Scoop out the potato pulp and place it into a large bowl, being careful to leave the skins intact. Rub the outsides of the potato skins with a little olive oil. Place the skins on the prepared baking sheet and set aside.
  3. Add the butter to the potato pulp and mash - using an electric mixer or a potato masher - until fairly smooth; add Greek yogurt, buttermilk, salt, pepper, chives, garlic powder, onion powder, dried onion flakes, dill weed, paprika, broccoli and 3/4 cup of the cheese. Divide the filling evenly among the potato shells then top with remaining cheese. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the potatoes are heated through. Serve at once!

Notes

You may use sour cream in place of the Greek yogurt. You may use almost any other cheese in place of the cheddar.
