Guacamole

Apparently it only takes 7 years of coaxing to get a kid to realize that guacamole is delicious. And then it only takes a couple more days for said kid to demand guacamole pretty much all the time.

Riding in the Car with Kids

I love riding in the car with kids. NOT.

My Favorite Salad Dressing

I love salad but I hate almost all typical Western salad dressings. They’re all either too vinegar-y (anything Balsamic, ugh), too thick (xanthan gum, ugh), or too dairy-based (ranch, ugh). In my picky opinion, THIS is what salad dressing should taste like.

Flautas

My longest recipe to date – 3 pages of dragon cooking. I got really silly with the first page and then kind of lost the ridiculous DnD theme halfway through. They still taste good tho.

Dragon Kefta

Sometimes I make stuff and the kids like it way more than I expect. Obviously that’s good but then they’re also eating my food so maybe next time I’ll make more.

Meet Nana Dragon. She might have some strong opinions about your cooking. You’ve definitely heard them all before.

Oat Bran Pancakes

If I were a fancy food blogger, I’d say the oat bran gives them a complex, hearty flavor that goes perfectly with delicately scalloped, hand-dyed Shetland wool hand warmers wrapped around a freshly poured cup of locally roasted fair trade coffee rim-lit by the warm rays of winter sun streaming across a rustic wood kitchen table. Or something like that.

Quick Thin Crust Pizza

Friday night is pizza and movie night at the Dragon house. After a couple years of experimentation with different flours and techniques, Papa Dragon stumbled across the basis for this dough recipe on the back of a bag of all-purpose flour. It’s quick and easy and we can all make our own pizzas exactly the way we want them.

Algerian Breakfast Porridge

A big thanks to my friend Mouna, who shared this week’s recipe with the Lil’ Dragons. Super yummy, super easy and super comforting, asida can be customized lots of ways – use coconut milk instead of milk, choose your own fave dried fruit and or nuts, serve communally or hoard it all to yourself!
