The Internet Kitchen: Sniffles

by Nick

I woke up yesterday with a little case of the sniffles. I wouldn’t say that I’m sick, but I think my body is just grumpy that it’s no longer 70 and sunny every day. It’s like my body is just unhappy with the weather situation and can tell that it’s only going to get worse!

I’m using what I believe to be an old-time cure for mild sickness which is simply to ignore it. I’m going to the gym, doing work, and generally doing everything I would normally do to hopefully fake out said case of sniffles.

If you don’t hear from me by Monday, it’ means I have lost the battle.

The Poll

I made a big pot of chicken noodle soup for my sniffles, but I’m looking for other cures. Pick something and I’ll make it.

The Links

Turkey Drumsticks – This reminds me of the local fair. Turkey drumsticks are one of my favorite fair foods just because they are so ridiculous. These, of course, look substantially better and would be a fun alternative Thanksgiving dish actually. (@ Sippity Sup)

Andrew Zimmern Interview - This is a fun little interview with one of my favorite food celebrities. I did not know he is starting a food truck business. That’s pretty cool stuff. A great listen in the background segment if you have 10ish minutes. (@ No Recipes)

Whole Wheat Croissants - These just look perfect and the photos actually help me realize how I could maybe, just maybe, make them. I’ve tried croissants three times in my life and they have always destroyed me. (@ David Lebovitz)

Edible Chocolate Shot Glasses - Ok. This post looks delicious, but what I mainly love is the glasses you can eat! I want this recipe, but I want it to be boozy. (@ Sprinkle Bakes)

Sweet Potato Latkes – This is a lovely recipe and one I’m saving for later. I maybe will make them for Thanksgiving or a lazy brunch, but I’ll definitely be making them. (@ Food Loves Writing)

  1. What always helps me is to take a mug and put water in it, then put the water in a small pan on the stove. In the water, put about three cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed, about 1/2″ of fresh ginger, peeled and cut in chuncks and bring to a boil and turn heat off. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon in your mug. (You may add honey to your mug as well.) After taking out the garlic and ginger, pour the water in your mug and sip away. I usually only need three mug fulls to eradicate my sniffles. Hope this helps! (PS.. I DO NOT like the taste of ginger, but I will do this every time the sniffles come around, as it works for me so well.)
