About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since I am never in the States for Thanksgiving, my family and I celebrate it when we are all in Massachusetts for summer vacation. And that is how our "Thanksgiving in July" tradition started!

Golden Sweet Cornbread
Hooray for this recipe! I live in Europe, so if we want cornbread, I have to make it from scratch. I had tried several recipes, but they weren't quite "it" (perhaps because the Romanian cornmeal we use is a bit different from American cornmeal). But this recipe did the trick and my kids love it. Thanks!

Sopa de Lentejas (Andalucian Lentil Soup)
To make this a bit more traditional, salt-cured ham hock pieces are used for more flavor (hueso de jamón serrano), but I imagine these are hard to find in the US. Also, instead of bacon, in Spain we use panceta. In addition, Spanish paprika is missing. Spaniards typically make a "sofrito": in a small pan, sauté chopped onion in 2T olive oil, then add chopped tomoatoes and allow to reduce, then add about 1/2T Spanish paprika. Add this mixture to the pot. ¡Buen provecho!

Crema de Calabazines
Correction: "Crema de Calabacín" or "Calabacines" This is an authentic Spanish recipe, although instead of onion I usually use a leek. To give the soup more flavor, I sauté the onion or leek in about 2T of olive oil until golden-brown, then add in the remaining ingredients. My mother-in-law adds the cheese, as you do, but my kids don't like cheese and I leave it out. Some milk may also be added instead. ¡Gracias por subir una auténtica receta española!
