Krystal Keith in the Kitchen: Bananas Foster Pancakes

Krystal Keith's Bananas Foster Pancakes

This is one of my favorite indulgent breakfasts. It combines one of my favorite breakfast foods, pancakes, with one of my all-time favorite desserts, Bananas Foster. If you haven’t ordered Bananas Foster at a restaurant, go ahead and put it on your foodie bucket list because it is a must! Bananas sautéed in brown sugar, butter and rum. They light the mixture on fire, which is always fun, and serve it over vanilla ice cream. Sounds like the perfect topping for pancakes, too, huh? I also thought so.

It’s International Waffle Day!

International Waffle Day
As the wise, inspirational Leslie Knope once said, “We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles and work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter but work is third.” Since today is International Waffle Day, it only seems appropriate to remember and repeat her words. Wherever you are and whatever you do today, at least make sure to eat a fluffy, warm waffle.

Waffle Day originated in Sweden due to confusion over similarly pronounced words Våffeldagen, meaning “waffle,” and vårfrudagen meaning “Our Lady’s Day.” March 25 traditionally celebrates the Feast of the Annunciation, a Christian holiday when Mary the mother of Jesus learned she would bear a son. Swedes also celebrate the beginning of spring on March 25. So, the Swedish people simply combined the holidays, celebrating Our Lady’s Day and the start of spring by eating waffles.

Krystal Keith in the Kitchen: Green Chile Refried Beans

Krystal Keith in the Kitchen: Green Chile Refried Beans

Y’all that know me, know that I love, love, love Hatch Valley green chiles. My family puts them in everything including eggs, mashed potatoes, soups…. Don’t be surprised if I bring out a Hatch green chile ice cream at some point! But one of the most classic Mexican side dishes is the perfect place for these flavorful chiles.

This is my absolute favorite side dish when I’m serving Mexican food. Forget plain-old canned refried beans. Ten minutes of prep time and a few hours in a Crock-Pot and you have a healthy, homemade side of refried beans that will knock your socks off. And, as a bonus, you get to bag it up and store it in the freezer for the next few times you need refried beans as a side dish.

Krystal Keith in the Kitchen: Baked Spaghetti Squash

Krystal Keith's Baked Spaghetti Squash Recipe

Happy New Year!! I hope that y’all had a cozy and festive Christmas and kicked off 2015 in style. I enjoyed some much-needed downtime at the beach with the family, but I’m glad to be back to making music and sharing dishes with you. I’m not usually a fan of New Year’s resolutions, but this year mine was to challenge myself in the kitchen, to introduce new ingredients and make delicious healthy swaps, and just try new things.

So, I’m starting the new year with spaghetti squash, one of my favorite underused vegetables. Ditch the regular pasta for this healthy substitute and you won’t be sorry. Once cooked, this squash turns into strings of “spaghetti,” which you can toss with your favorite pasta dish ingredients, and Voilà!  This is a low-carb lover’s best friend, but if you aren’t dieting or watching what you eat, you’ll still love it…. Yes! It is THAT good.
