When the town’s villain, Archibald Snatcher (Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley), comes up with a plot to get rid of the Boxtrolls, Eggs decides to venture above ground, “into the light,” where he meets and teams up with fabulously feisty Winnifred (Elle Fanning). Together, they devise a daring plan to save Eggs’ family.

Classic British Dishes for You to Try at Home

This post may contain affiliate links.
Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

British cuisine takes a bit of a bashing sometimes. Former French president Jacques Chirac had a go at British cooking way back in 2005. It’s best to ignore Mr. Chirac. British food can be nourishing and delicious. London has a growing gastronomic reputation that rivals even Paris. (Take that, Chirac!) Brits have long loved dining on foreign food. We can’t move for Indian, Chinese and Italian restaurants in the UK. That means we sometimes neglect our own culinary masterpieces. With that in mind, here are some great British meals for you to try as soon as possible.

Sunday dinner

It’s for good reason that much of Europe calls the Brits “rosbifs.” A roast beef dinner on Sundays is part of the British culture. Sitting down with the whole family around an enormous dinner table is one of the great joys of British life. The beef is the key component of any Sunday dinner. You must be thorough when cooking it, so it’s tender and full of flavour. After that, you’ve just got all the trimmings. Roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy are all fantastic. Everyone does their Sunday dinner in their own special way. Make it your own.

Toad in the hole

toads in the hole(Image link – Google Images)

The name may be peculiar, but don’t let that put you off.  Toad in the hole is classic British comfort food. It consists of sausages mixed in with homemade batter. The sausages should be succulent and meaty – pork is the best. The batter must be crisp around the edges, but fluffy too. It’s tricky to get right, so you’d be better off buying some to try before attempting it yourself. It’s a wonderful addition to any family dinner table.

Balti

Balti is a variety of curry served in a thin bowl, known as a “balti bowl.” You may not think of curry when you think of British cuisine. Au contraire – Balti first originated in the UK, gaining popularity in Birmingham. That’s a classic example of the British cultural tradition. The UK adapts to other cultures better than any other nation. That adaptability is part of what makes Britain great. Balti is variable. It’s another dish that you can make your own. Some say it’s impossible to get a true Balti outside of the West Midlands. Don’t listen to them – give it a try.

Victoria sponge

Fancy some dessert? Named after Queen Victoria, the Victoria sponge cake is another British classic. It’s a simple recipe, but that doesn’t make it any less tasty. Just whip up a soft sponge mixture and stick a layer of cream and jam in the middle. It’s a good recipe to try with new bakers or young children. You can also have fun with the topping. A dusting of sugar is traditional, but you can alter it if you like. You may add fruit or icing, perhaps, to make it special.

Have I got your stomach rumbling yet? I hope so. British food is simple and delicious. Anyone can have a go at cooking British. That’s the beauty of it. Have fun in the kitchen, and you’ll soon be serving up a whole range of tasty British treats.

Pineapple Coconut Smoothie with Lifeway Kefir PLUS How to Cut a Pineapple with Ease

Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

I am a member of the Collective Bias Social Fabric Community.   This Pineapple Coconut Kefir Smoothie recipe post has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and Lifeway.  All opinions are 100% my own.  #KefirCreations  #CollectiveBias #Shop #Cbias

If you have been following my blog recently then you probably already know that I have really been trying to make healthy lifestyle changes to combat my fibromyalgia and other health problems.  I have been using essential oils, trying to be more active (that’s a hard one for me), and most importantly, I have been learning how to eat healthier.  Don’t get me wrong, I have a long way to go, but I’m making daily changes for myself and my family.  One of these changes is adding more fresh fruits and veggies to our diet.  I usually have a variety of fruits and veggies in my kitchen so I decided to turn some of them into smoothies.  My girls and I headed over to Winn Dixie to grab some Lifeway Kefir to add to my smoothie to kick it up a notch on the healthy scale.  At the store the Lifeway Kefir is kept in the same refrigerated case as the almond milk, soy milk, and coffee creamers.  Once you see my recipe you’ll want to get some for yourself.  Make sure to sign up for Lifeway Kefir coupons before you shop!

#shop  #KefirCreations  #CollectiveBias #Cbias

So what exactly is kefir?  I’ve only recently discovered this tasty cousin to yogurt.  It is a cultured probiotic beverage that is similar in taste and texture to drinkable yogurt but Lifeway Kefir has significantly more live and active cultures.  It is cultured for 14 to 16 hours (compared to 2 to 4 hours for yogurt) to give it a unique effervescent taste and high probiotic count.  Each cup contains 12 different probiotics and 7 to 10 BILLION CFU’s (colony forming units).  That’s a lot of healthy, good for you, LIVE probiotic cultures that have a wide array of health benefits.  Lifeway Kefir comes in a HUGE variety of flavors and the store I went to had 2 of those flavors available, Plain and Strawberry Banana.  I knew both would go with all the fruit I already had so I bought one of each so I could decide when I got home which direction I wanted to take my recipe.
#shop  #KefirCreations  #CollectiveBias #CbiasAs we got home the weather started looking ominous.  I was determined to not let the black clouds overhead ruin my good mood so I decide the best way to chase the dark clouds away would be to make a tropical pineapple coconut smoothie with the juicy pineapple I had been trying to decide what to do with.  The only problem was that it was a whole pineapple.  I have always been a little intimated by having to slice up a whole pineapple so I usually buy them already cut up.  But I was determined to figure out just how to cut up this delicious looking pineapple and it came out pretty good if I do say so myself.
 #KefirCreations  #CollectiveBias #shop #cbiasHere’s how to cut up a whole pineapple:

I only needed 2 cups of cut up pineapple for the smoothie so I froze the rest.  I love frozen pineapple or any frozen fruit for that matter.  Often if I have a headache I will reach for a cut of frozen fruit to chew on before I reach for pain relievers.  The frozen fruit often helps my headache go away naturally.  With my pieces of pineapple cut up I was ready to make my smoothie.

Pineapple Coconut Kefir Smoothie
Makes 2 smoothies
2 cups cut up pineapple (I used fresh but frozen would be great, too)
1 cup coconut water
1 1/2 cups Lifeway Kefir Plain (SHAKE WELL FIRST)
1/3 cup of unsweetened finely shredded coconut
3 1/2 cups of ice
#shop  #KefirCreations  #CollectiveBias #CbiasPlace all ingredients in a high power blender.  (I like to use my Blendtec because it has a smoothie setting.)
#shop  #KefirCreations  #CollectiveBias #CbiasBlend until smooth and enjoy!
For an added kick, add some rum!

Viola!!!
#shop  #KefirCreations  #CollectiveBias #Cbias
Now what shall I do with the Lifeway Strawberry Banana Kefir Smoothie I bought?
Time to make some smoothies for my girls.  Maybe I’ll sneak in some spinach, too. 😉

Red, White, and Blueberry Salad with Raspberry Lemon Vinaigrette

Thank you for visiting Cori's Cozy Corner! Please make sure to like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our E-mails!

Disclosure- I received the product mentioned below in exchange for posting my recipe and review.  I received no other compensation and all opinions are 100% my own.
Red White and Blueberry SaladIt’s summertime which in our house means LOTS of fresh fruit.  I was so excited to receive a Good Cook 3 Piece Cut Fruit Bowl set to try out.  It is the perfect bowl for fruit because it keeps watermelon and cut fruit fresher longer.  It consists of a very generously sized bowl on the bottom, a colander that fits inside it, and a lid.
fresh fruit bowlWashing fresh fruit is such a breeze with the Cut Fruit Bowl.  The bowl on the bottom has a pour spout making it so easy to pour out any liquids.  Since fruit doesn’t sit in liquids it stays fresher longer which means saving money on wasted fruit.  This Good Cook product is exclusively available at Bed Bath and Beyond.
P1220185Once all my fruit was washed I was ready to create my yummy salad recipe that is just perfect for The 4th of July or any summer day.   I used the bottom bowl to assemble the salad ingredients.

Salad-
Spring Mix Lettuce
Baby Spinach
Strawberries (sliced)
Raspberries
Blueberries
Feta Cheese Chunks

dressing ingredientsDressing-
1/4 cup Raspberry Balsamic Vinegar
1 Tablespoon Spicy Brown Mustard
2 Tablespoons of Honey
1 Clove of Garlic- pressed
Juice of 1/2 Lemon (fresh is better but you can use about 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice)
1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/8 Teaspoon Sea Salt or Kosher Salt
1/8 Teaspoon Black Pepper

Whisk together raspberry balsamic vinegar, spicy brown mustard, honey, garlic, lemon juice, salt, and pepper.  Slowly stream olive oil into vinegar mixture while whisking briskly.  Transfer to a container you can close and store in.  Shake well before pouring over salad.  A little goes a long way with this dressing so pour slowly.

Makes about 8 servings.
