Homemade short ribs and churros
I love using my dutch oven to cook. Not sure what I love the most about. The overall appearance, browning the meats, the versatility. Makes me warm and fuzzy inside. This recipe is super easy and delicious. Exactly why I love it. Glad I got to share this with my loved ones tonight <3

Amazingly Simple Churros
So I had puff pastry in the freezer. Saw churros being made on tv and I thought it would be genius to fry the puff pastry for my very own churros.
Simple, simple, simple.
I cut the puff pastry into strips (thaw it 1st obviously). Heat canola oil 370 F. Fry the strips until golden brown. Transfer to paper toweled plate. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar while hot. Serve alongside nutella. If that can’t impress someone, then they are not worth impressing!
