Parmesan Garlic Straw recipe. These babies are the perfect little pre dinner appetizers. They are super pretty, especially if you nail the twist pre bake. I prefer to serve these in a glass, or a something like a weck jar to show off their long slender shape. You could totally pair these with a myriad of dipping sauces if you wanted, but they are also just perfect by themselves. They also keep really well, and in my opinion would make a great vehicle to consume things like mashed potatoes. They are really an elegant and delicious addition to any kind of meal.

Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe. Thibeault's Table: Italian Garlic Bread with Gorgonzola. Last night we had dinner with our wonderful neighbours Barb and Clif. Barb is only home one week a month as she works out of town. So when she is home we usually have dinner together at least once or twice. Since it was a work day for me, I decided to make my favourite pasta sauce - Sausage and Rosemary - something I could put on in the morning and then just reheat. For a quick appetizer we had little cocktail toasts topped with warm goat cheese, a toasted walnut half and a drizzle of olive oil. A nice little bite that goes well with a glass of red wine. And with the pasta we had our favourite Gorgonzola Garlic Bread. We lived in Dunkirk, NY for a couple of years and would often go into Buffalo for lunch or dinner.

This bread is my recreation of their Gorgonzola bread. I mentioned this bread once before in a one of my earlier blog entries. Long loaf of Italian Bread or long crusty rolls.

A few ingredients creates a soft, but dense bread. The basic principle is to use the beer as the yeast. Although beer is great in this capacity, adding a leavening agent like baking soda, or self rising flour, is important to help keep the bread from becoming too dense. The simple ingredients open the possibility to so many different types of flavorings.

Beer bread can be sweet or savory. I got my hands on a few bottles of the Gingerbread Ale from Bison Brewery for this batch of beer bread.

Jalapeno Pale Ale Cornbread. The past few weeks I’ve been craving summer. I live in Los Angeles, so feel free to laugh at my inability to cope with a mild seasonal chill.

It isn’t so much the weather of the Summer months that I miss, but the culture of the season. Backyard barbecues, a slower life pace, vacations and water related activities. There is something about the way that summer feels in my bones, the feeling of endless possibilities that the days bring that I miss. Beer is a great way to add a new dimension to cornbread. I chose Stone 11.11.11 Vertical Epic Ale because it has a beautiful chili flavor, without the heat, a hard thing to accomplish.

Tortillas are easy, and you probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen already.

Bloomin' Onion Bread. My husband and I waited tables at Outback Steakhouse while we were in college and ate our share of Bloomin’ Onions. But the funny thing is we never actually ordered them. If a table ordered a Bloomin’ Onion and canceled the order, the onion would sit in the window until another table ordered one which was usually just a matter of minutes. But every once in a while there would be a lull where no orders would come in and the “Bloom” was pronounced “dead”, meaning it would not be served to customers, and all the servers got to eat it.

For some reason we always came to work starving so when this happened we ate our little hearts out. I don’t know if there are other servers out there but I still have reoccurring nightmares where I’m in the weeds with all of my table – everyone needs a drink refill and all of my orders are wrong. I’m sooo happy when I wake up from that dream! Ingredients Instructions Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Notes. Texas Roadhouse Sweet Rolls and Special Butter.
