I made these sometime this week. These were fabulous. Patrick loved them. They were crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and fabulous! Served with a mayo/ketchup dip with cayenne, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, and lime juice. I’m going to be making these again.
I made this earlier in the week — we had it one night with grilled cheese, and then at least once more for lunch (also with grilled cheese). It was fun to make, just watch out for squirting tomatoes when you mash them with the potato smasher. There is no cream, so it keeps well … More Creamless Creamy Tomato Soup – keeping this one too
The other night I made fajitas, because I could, and because when we get Mexican takeout, I’m partial to chimichangas, so it has been ages since I’ve had fajitas of any kind! This particular recipe comes from the Cooks Illustrated Modern Classics 2012 (p. 20-21) — yes, this is part of my attempt to work … More Fajitas! because, why not?
In a fit of organizing passion, I recently cleared out 7+ magazine files of Cooks Illustrated magazines dating back to 2007-8, paring down my top picks, mostly the yearly Best of and Seasonal Entertaining, and pulling out the 1-3 recipes from each issue that I might actually make. The pull-outs have been slightly trimmed for … More a fit of organizing passion – Baked Goat Cheese Salad
There has been a fair bit of build up to this. First, I had a wave of inspiration and I made blackberry kolaches, then I made American Cheese, today I finally got things together and made savory kolaches. I changed things up a little, I quartered my polish sausages, and used American cheese instead of … More savory kolaches
After making blackberry cream-cheese kolaches, I set my sights on making savory ones as well — they’re called klobasnek, but as I have no hopes of pronouncing that, I’m going to call them savory kolaches. I found Lisa Fain’s (The Homesick Texan) klobasenk recipe on epicurious.com, and after reading through it, I decided I wanted … More first you make the cheese
Every once in a great while I have an overwhelming need to make kolaches. Sometimes it is to put off the stress of moving and procrastinate on doing other things, other times it is because I really need comfort food. This time? I’m not sure, but I know there are other things I probably should … More Blackberry Kolaches
It has been warm and my limited freezer space has made it difficult to get out my ice cream maker bowl attachment. What follows are some no-ice-cream-maker-needed ways to enjoy something cold, inspired from various sources on the internet, books and a recipe vaguely based off what came in our CSA box. Peach Sorbet Some … More Peach Sorbet, Strawberry Sauce & Peanut Butter Ice Cream
Last Friday we went to Costco and on a whim I bought a giant bag of Kirkland Trail mix. It’ll be great! I thought. We can have it for snacks this summer, and it’ll add something fun to their lunches. When we got home, I gave each boy a small bowl of trail mix. They only … More trail mix bars
Gavin’s birthday is today, which means, for one whole month we are the same age. To celebrate I made a Raspberry Charlotte, because I could. It was not as complicated as I feared, and I’m saving the recipe in case I need an impressive dessert to share again. The only thing I would do differently … More Happy Birthday Gavin, Enjoy the Raspberry Charlotte
