Our maple tree has officially been stripped naked of it’s leaves and more water has fallen from the sky than I ever thought was possible. We are definitely in the middle of fall! Cabbage has been making it’s way into nearly every meal along with all of it’s seasonal companions. At this time of year this is my go to hash… the sweetness from the apples compliments the bitterness of the cabbage and it’s all cooked up with tender potatoes and sautéed onions. The perfect fall dish that can be eaten for any meal!
Our first autumn on the east coast has welcomed us with all sorts of vivid shades of oranges, reds and yellows. And as the cool fall weather is setting there is nothing more comforting than a warm breakfast. The first time I had dutch baby was a little over six years ago, when my partner and I took a trip to the Kootenays to visit some of his family. Adrian and talked of dutch baby stating that it was one of his favourite breakfasts, but I didn’t quite understand what all of the fuss was about. What is a dutch baby anyways? Adrian’s step-mom, Jill, whipped one up on our first morning with them and I have been hooked ever since. The crispy edges, puffy and eggy texture makes the dutch baby somewhere between a waffle and a pancake. Simple to make, requiring only a cast iron pan and a blender, means that dutch baby the perfect dish for weekend brunch.
