It’s time for another installment of a segment on the blog that I like to call The Candid Appetite Classics. I know, I know, it’s been so long since the last one, you’ve probably already forgotten about it. Say it ain’t so! It’s a great series, so please don’t forget about it. Hopefully you’re still interested. This post will make you a believer again. Anyhow, I digress. Yes, in this segment we explore classic dishes that all of us should have under our belt. These are the important ones. They’re easy to make without any complicated ingredients or steps. Just simple and straight to the point. I started this series last year because I wanted something that was attainable by everyone. So often I get lost in fancy complex dishes on this blog that I forget to take a step back and appreciate the small things in life. Dishes don’t have to be fancy or over the top in order to be delicious. With just a handful of ingredients, you could have the best show-stopping meal you’ve ever had. And the best part about it is that you made it, or will have made it. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and make this soup.
Just in case you need a little refresher course on what some of the other classics have been, I’ll remind you. Perhaps you missed a post or one slipped right by you. Regardless of what happened, you should worry not because I’ve got your back. What are friends for? Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Bacon Cheeseburgers, Cinnamon Rolls, Apple Pie, Yellow Cake with Chocolate Buttercream, Chili Cheese Dogs, and Strawberry Shortcakes. There’s a nice balance of everything we need in life, so be sure to pick and choose whichever you like better, or whichever you need in your life right this moment. Perhaps you need two of them or all of them. Who am I to judge? They’re here to help you out. To make you a rockstar in the kitchen.
While I’m at it, I’ll also remind you that I’ve started a hashtag for my classics posts. Follow the #TCAclassics hashtag to be in the know. I love to see the images you share so don’t be shy. Go ahead and share away. If you make any of these classic recipes, be sure to share them on social media using that tag. Even if you don’t make one of the classics, but you cook or bake up something else from the site, be sure to tag your photos with #TheCandidAppetite or #CandidAppetite. I follow both of those tags closely and whenever one of you posts something on it, I instantly fall in love with you (not in a creepy way) and get super excited and show it off to my family. It’s a big deal. All of this just to tell you that I’m very appreciative of you all. You guys are the best. I’m listening and I’m paying attention.
