Welcome!

So glad you checked out The Literary Feast’s new blog. Here, I am just sharing some of the more interesting and delicious foods I’ve had the chance to make and enjoy with my family and friends, and you are invited. I am not a professional chef, by any means. Or a professional photographer, though I…

Cajun Salmon Bento

It’s not completely true to southern cooking, but it’s about 98% there. The best order in which to start everything (after the prep work is done) is Red Beans & Rice -> Salmon -> Maque Choux, to maximise your time. Cajun Salmon Bento 4sp per serving, makes 4 servings Red Beans & Rice 4sp per…

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Waffles

These were a big hit with my kiddo, and they’re low-carb and easy to make too. All you need is a waffle iron really. Keep in mind they’re softer than a flour waffle, but they still have a lot of fluff and flavour. You’ll also want to be careful removing them from a shaped waffle…

Peppercorn Beef Stew

“There were footsteps in the hall, and a young man stepped into the room carrying a bowl of stew that steamed and smelled of pepper. He was dark and charming, with a quick smile and cunning eyes.“ – The Name of the Wind I have a soft spot for stews. They’re easy to make, filling,…

Cardamom Doughnuts with Vanilla-Cinnamon Glaze & Sprinkles

‘ “Indeed not, wizard,” the gruff said. “Indeed it would not be.” He bowed his head to me. “Likest thou jelly within thy doughnut?” “Nay, but prithee, with sprinkles ’pon it instead,” I said solemnly, “and frosting of white.” ‘ – Small Favor These aren’t your average sweet doughnut, honestly. They have tang, and depth…

Chicken Mole & Cilantro Rice

This was really good, and nicely spicy. Good enough that it became tacos the next day, and the extra sauce got bottled up for another day. If you want it less spicy, just cut down on the amount of dried chilis that go in. Chicken Mole & Cilantro Lime Rice 8sp per serving, serves 6…

Roasted Salmon Bento

It was time to depart from rice and chicken for a little while, and get some fish on. I think the next fish one is going to be Cajun style. But this one is a simple glazed salmon- everything pretty much went into the oven except the quinoa so it was a pretty simple set….

Finger Sandwiches: Prosciutto & Parmesan, Eggplant Toscana

‘ “It’s always the brain stem with you,” she murmured. But she guided us over to the refreshment tables so that I could pick up a tiny sandwich.’ – Death Masks Sandwiches make the best quick meal, and these are pretty hearty as far as that goes, so they work well for a good dinner…
