Seafood Macaroni and Cheese – Not a Corporate Food Gift

Cooking with Tristan Seafood Macaroni and CheeseIt is really amazing how food plays such a big part in our lives. We use corporate food gifts to thank our customers sometimes with a logo and sometimes not. We start morning meetings with fresh coffee and danish or to get a large crowd to an Realtor open house or meeting, food usually plays a big part too. I have never really been a fan of cooking. It is the big clean up that I don’t really like. If I make the mess while I am attempting to cook, then I am the one to clean up and that has never appealed to me.  However, the most fun I have had in the past two years is watching my son cook, and filming his “Cooking with Tristan” cooking show.  We have spent two or three hours filming a food segment that might last less than 10 minutes.  It is the bond that has brought us together. The bloopers and the laughing are so much fun and even when I am looking through all the clips to decide which to keep and which stay on the kitchen floor these segments bring a smile to my face or a laugh out loud!  Once again, it is food that brought us together and plays a large part in our lives. I am sure that food does this for your family too.

Tristan’s latest episode “Seafood Macaroni and Cheese” is still a work in progress of his acting abilities. But that doesn’t hurt the fact that this recipe is scrumptious!  As with all recipes you need to make them your own. So add a little more cheese or a little less shrimp because ultimately you know what you like and it is fun to experiment with recipes.

Moist Chicken Breast Dinner – Quick and Easy to Make

Moist Breaded Chicken Breasts – Quick and Easy on Cooking with TristanI don’t know about you but I am not a fan of the kitchen, so anything that tastes great and still takes very little prep time is for me. This time we shot this video in less than a half an hour. Not as many bloopers as we normally have because this is a very simple breaded chicken recipe with only 3 ingredients. You have your chicken breasts, mayonnaise and Italian breadcrumbs. That’s it, very easy. Tristan did a great job showing how this dinner was made, and even young children can make this dinner and feel real good about themselves because it is so delicious. Just a little help from mom or dad to take the chicken in and out of the oven, but other than that a 5 year old could easily make this all by their self.  You can click here for the full recipe and measurements.

Banana Crepes Served for Breakfast or Dessert?

Crepe RecipeSometimes you might just be looking for something a bit different to serve for either brunch with guests or as an unusual dessert. Crepes are not your average dessert faire. These Banana Crepes, also known as French Pancakes, on this week’s episode of Cooking with Tristan are an incredible dish for both breakfast/brunch and dessert. If you like banana’s this recipe is for you. The crepes are easy to make – check out Cooking with Tristan episode 100 for the basic recipe, and then follow the rest of the Banana crepe recipe for the filling and crepe topping.

Tristan made this for dinner one evening and his brothers could not get enough of these. We had to make a double batch just so they could get their dinner and dessert fix. Of course this was one of those nights where you don’t really feel like cooking a “real” dinner, so your kids talk you in to doing breakfast dinner. We added sausage to round out the meal, and of course a glass of milk. Give it a try, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Frozen Citrus Pie – A No-Bake Graham Cracker Crust Pie Perfect for Summer

Cooking with Tristan "No Bake Citrus Pie" The hot days of summer are straight upon us. It is blazing hot here in Florida and this Citrus pie recipe comes at the perfect time. I suggest making two or three pies, one to eat tonight and a couple more to pull out for unexpected guests or your next party or gathering. What I like about this no bake citrus pie is you can use either lemon or lime, I am pretty sure that even frozen orange juice concentrate would work for an orangey dreamsicle flavor.  Check out “Cooking with Tristan” on YouTube, to see how easy this pie is to make, and for the full recipe and measurements go to www.GourmetFoodGiftPeople.com and click on Cooking with Tristan.
