Dessert from the Amateur Chef

Earlier today I created a delicious dish that was the main part of my dinner menu. I made it up as I went along combining rainbow chard with beef brats. Baked sweet potato fries was added to the menu. I didn’t make the corn muffins.

My sweet tooth started kicking up so I decided to make dessert. A simple dessert came to mind. It was one that I’ve only baked once. There was no recipe in my stash so to the internet I went and found an easy one. I had everything in the house so I got busy and the Madeleine’s were in the oven in less than fifteen minutes. So in about twenty-nine minutes I had great tasting little cakes. This is a great dessert if you have company coming.

Creative Cooking of an Amateur Chef

My stomach started growling feed me. I didn’t know what it wanted to eat because it didn’t tell me. Standing in front of the refrigerator with the doors wide open, I started scanning the occupants. There was half a cabbage, two bunches of rainbow chard and grass-fed beef brats. It was a toss-up between the cabbage and chard. The chard won.

I decided to slice the brats in bite size pieces and cook it with the chard. Home Run!

First I combined the chopped chard stems and brats and sautéed together in coconut oil until stems were tender. Seasoned with a little sea salt and pepper and added the chopped leaves and topped with a lid for a few minutes. After the leaves began to wilt I gave it a stir and added a tablespoon of butter. The lid went on again for a few minutes. Removed the lid and seasoned with a little more salt and pepper and a small amount of red pepper flakes. Beef Brats and Rainbow Chard

I was so hungry that I inhaled a small plate of brats and chard-nothing else.          Delicious!

For dinner I will add sweet potato fries.If I feel energetic I might make corn muffins. 

I made this dish up as I went along. That’s what I consider fun cooking. Check picture out.
