I follow the blog of a talented woman and wonderful writer. Cynthia Reyes was one of the first blogs I found when I looked into the “blogging” world. I was immediately drawn in by her stunning photography and the way in which she “uses” words to explain her posts.
Her recent post Idiot-Proof Comfort Food had me laughing as usual when she shared she made a 2 ingredient recipe and forgot one of the ingredients! Her book, which is available on her website, is as entertaining and fun to read as her blog. On vacation last summer, I could barely put it down reading into the wee hours of the morning!
I decided to try this recipe yesterday and while it takes time, it was worth every minute! The nice part was I was able to do chores around the house while it cooked.
Here are some pictures of how I made the recipe she shared!
This is the finished dish and let me tell you, for someone trying to watch their diet, this fills just about every food desire you have. It’s sweet, savory, filling and delicious!
I followed the directions using setting 1 on our electric stove. I also used about 1 TBSP of butter and 1 TBSP of olive oil when I started the onions. I covered it as well. The potatoes do get a bit mushy if you stir it when it’s done but I like it that way.
I portioned mine out into small containers and will use it as my “fill in” snack in between meals this week. It may not last a week as my mother has already dug in to get herself a bowl!!
Do take the time to visit Cynthia’s blog. I am sure you will enjoy it as much as I do!
