This past weekend my husband, Nick, and I went to hang with my mom and step-dad at their Keys home in Big Pine Key. Weekends there generally consist of full breakfasts, packed lunches for the boat and dinners using the catch of the day. My mother, who is equally gourmet took on most of these tasks, but here are a few I pioneered.
Peanut Butter Pecan Biscotti’s
Recipe c/o @joythebaker
This recipe was easy and fun, given it was my first time making biscotti’s. I also under baked them a little since I prefer them to be not so tooth-braking.
Mediterranean Pressed Picnic Sandwich
Recipe c/o @food52
I made a traditional Pan Bagnat recently for another boat trip and it was delicious, savory and kept really well. However, something about eating fish while out at sea was sickening. So, for this go-around I went for a different recipe. While still a pressed sandwich, this one offered Mediterranean flavors such as artichokes, olive tapenade, roasted red peppers and artichokes, and lovely prosciutto.
And this photo is just for fun. It also makes me feel like my parents are bad asses.
