So Day 170 of my challenge to be more Brazilian, Chicago edition, I made homemade pão de queijo. Well, it kind of depends how you define “homemade.” Say you buy a box of Betty Crocker cake mix, mix it up and put it in the oven, and then take it to a party. Someone asks you, “Hey is that home made?” Do you respond with, “No, it came from a box.” You don’t. You just say yes. (When you create something with only the very basic ingredients from your own kitchen it is making it “from scratch.” FYI for those foreign to the USA.)
So, ok. I made it from a bag. But it was still pretty good. Not as good as when you get it straight from the padaria. But surprisingly good.
