Beer Brats & Caramelized Onion Pizza

What's for Dinner Moms?

Taking those things we love and turning them into something new for us! Brats are always on sale here and with the Super Bowl a few weeks ago sales were really great. I picked up a few packages to have on hand because they are like the hot dogs of the Midwest.

If you read my blog fairly regularly you know I LOVE caramelized onions. The sweetness, the savory taste is just perfect with a nice beer brat. We were out of rolls so what do I do? Improvise! Lets make this into a pizza!


This was delicious! I went simple with a brush of olive oil and a sprinkle of powdered garlic across the crust before baking it for about 4 minutes. Then I put the cheeses on the crust with the sliced beer brats and onions over the top.  This was gone by breakfast the next morning…

‘Diples’ – Honey rolls

Kitchen Habits


‘Diples’ is on of the most typical Christmas desserts in Greece together with ‘kourampiedes‘ and ‘melomakarona‘. I found out recently that in some regions like Kalamata, it’s made throughout the whole year and it’s the typical treat in weddings. ‘My mom made 500 dimples for my brother’s wedding!’, told me my friend from Kalamata, Sophia. The number should be totally true (Greeks+weddings=lots of food!) This dessert is just great in its simplicity. Again, like most Greek food. Even though it looks pretty sophisticated and hard to make it really isn’t. It combines basic ingredients to be found in all Greek kitchens. Honey, walnuts, cinnamon, flour. You eat it with your hands, it always helps to maximize delight as one more sense adds in the experience!


the recipe



  • 2 eggs
  • 230gr. flour
  • 1tsp. baking powder
  • 130gr. orange juice
  • 130gr. vegetable oil
  • 400gr. vegetable oil for frying

Cauliflower au Gratin: Can Cauliflower get any better? Easy dish for a holiday dinner to dress up a pork chop or ham meal

So I always wonder how the winter is going for everyone – we’re going to be up to 58 tomorrow but I’m bummed because it’s supposed to rain. But it was supposed to snow, so we’re lucky for this heat wave. Then down to 15 degrees by the end of the week.

Cauliflower au Gratin Cauliflower au Gratin – simple enough and oh so scrumptious!

Catch More Flies with Vinegar Than Honey


Vinegar is having a moment right now, bolstered by the rising popularity of experimental pickling, increasingly sour drinks, and infused dressings. Perhaps it’s the natural reaction to being saturated in sweetness from morning to night, a palate cleanser in between sugary snacks and unbalanced entrees, that’s driving the trend. Whatever the case may be, it’s hardly an innovative thought; early American pioneers were hip to the vinegar hype way before it was cool.

Imagine those cold, dark days, before refrigeration was even a wild dream, when seasonal fruits were far from reach but demands for dessert were still as urgent as ever. Reach into the cupboard and pull out the first viable flavoring agent, and undoubtedly, you’d find a bottle of good old white vinegar in your hand. Blended into a simple, creamy custard and set inside a golden brown crust, classic vinegar pie is a study in careful contrasts…

Mouhalabiyeh – Levantine Milk Pudding

Hanady Kitchen


Dreamy mouhalabiyeh, a creamy and aromatic pudding flavored with orange blossom, rose, pistachios, and honey. This was one of my favorite desserts as a child and it always brings back festive memories. Such as many Levantine sweets native to Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, and Turkey, this custard-like pudding is characterized by the combination of dairy and orange and rose extracts. The pistachios are another component to the recipe rather than simply a topping. And the final result is absolutely lush. I find that this is a great dessert to make ahead of a dinner party – and one sure to make an impression.


4 cups milk
1/3 cup fresh cream (heavy whipping cream) or more milk
1/2 cup sugar
5 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon rose water
1 tablespoon orange blossom water
honey, for topping
pistachios, chopped, for topping


Simmer 4 cups of milk and sugar in a…
