Brazilian Hotdogs

Brazilian Hotdogs

My husband lived in Santa Maria, Brazil for two years when he was younger, serving a church mission, and while he was there he discovered Brazilian hot dogs! He has made them for me countless times over the past decade we have been together {not to make me sound old or anything!} And every time he does, he tweaks the recipe ever so slightly to improve it. Today they were SO spot on delicious, that we decided to write the recipe down so we can make them this way every time! We added pommes frites, but you can make these quickly and simply without, and even add peas or corn, which is a pretty traditional thing to do! Has anyone else out there tried Brazilian hot dogs before? How do you eat them?

Brazilian Feijoada

Brazilian Feijoada

A little while ago I mentioned that I was going to post my favorite feijoada recipe. My husband served a church mission in Brazil, so he lived there for a couple of years, and while he was there he really grew to love this dish. I hadn’t really thought about making it before, but then two or three weeks ago we had a karaoke party and Brazilian themed dinner at our church here in Mattawa, and our friend Dan made the most AMAZING feijoada, and I instantly fell in love with the dish too. Honestly, it kinda looked black and freaky and I was pretty convinced it would be bland like a lot of other plain white rice and beans I have had in the past… but this dish is deceptively delicious and bursting full of flavor. I was so excited when Dan shared his recipe with me, because it’s pretty perfect!

Brazilian Cheese Balls: Pao de Queijo

Brazilian Cheese Balls: Pao de Queijo

My husband lived in Santa Maria, Brazil for a couple of years while he served a church mission, and while he was there, his Brazilian room-mate would make pao de queijo (cheese balls) fresh every morning for breakfast. Well, the other day I came across a recipe for them from ourbestbites.com, that looked so simple and delicious, I thought I would have a go at making some for him, and I think I found one of my all time favorite recipes!
