My friend Kelli is going to have a baby in less than 10 days (well, if the mystery-gendered little one decides to come on time). I posted the cupcakes from her shower last month, but now I thought I would share something that I fell in love with at one of her showers. All in all, this is a snap to mix together.

The day is cold, gray, cloudy, the rain comes and goes, and I plan to spend the afternoon under the blankets, with a bowl of popcorn and a good movie.

Makes about 1 quart (950ml) Crab and Asparagus Quiche by Tomayto Tomahto « Roti n Rice. 77EmailShare While I am away visiting my parents in Malaysia, I have asked a couple of friends to guest post for me. Today, we have Ruby of Tomayto Tomahto with this elegant Crab and Asparagus Quiche.

As with most group-oriented activities, blogging tends to create a sense of camaraderie among rookies who started at the same time. After a while we can still relate to the trials and tribulations associated with the time of our start up. I first discovered Ruby’s blog through a friend way back in the “early days”. The title of her blog caught my attention as I often wondered how tomato should really be pronounced. I hope you will visit Ruby soon. And now, please welcome Ruby… I honestly can’t remember when the blogosphere first brought me Biren.

Here in the UK, asparagus season is almost as eagerly-awaited as the summer’s first Pimm’s.

We love pancakes over here at Plum Pie. In fact, they are a staple on our weekend brunch rotation. And since bikini season snuck up on me yet again, I decided to pull out my trusty, no-fail, grain goddess cookbook by none other than the Kim Boyce. (I love her as you can see here and here) You can totally justify dousing your ‘cakes with butter and syrup when you have added whole grains and oats to your batter. Or at least that is what I am going with. Don’t be intimidated by the extra step of cooking oatmeal. Your waistline will thank you.

Portuguese Girl Cooks: Blueberry Limeade Cocktail. Whole Foods Friday: It's all about ice cream! Now that the weather is warm, I'm in ice-cream-making mode. The great thing about making your own is that you can make any flavor you like - from plain vanilla to odd flavors, to loaded with add-ins. The sky's the limit. I'll admit it. Sometimes I'm not that creative. Inspired By Irish Cream Liqueur The first ice cream idea struck me when I was browsing through the liquor store and saw a bottle of an Irish cream liqueur with mint.

For the mint flavor, I decided to use a chocolate mint, and picked out a bar of Green & Black's mint bar. Irish Minty-Chocolate Ice Cream 1 quart half-and-half 3/4 cup sugar Pinch salt 6 egg yolks 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 4 tablespoons Irish whiskey 3.5 ounces Green & Black's mint chocolate (1 bar) Heat the half-and-half in a saucepan. Slowly add some of the half-and-half to the eggs, whisking as you do so, until you've got a least a cup of the hot liquid added to the yolks and the yolk mixture is warm. Turn off the heat and stir in the vanilla and whiskey. Salted caramel ice cream. « martetatin. The combination of sweet and salty is one I absolutely adore. I can’t seem to find the proper words to describe my love for the tartlet with salted caramel and dark chocolate ganache, the salted pecans in butterscotch pecan ice cream or the sugar-salt crust on top of the Bo Ssäm.

The taste is just terribly addictive and whenever there is something sweet and salty, I can’t stop myself from eating it (let’s be honest – when can I?). Salted caramel is one of the easiest things to make (that is: once you’ve discovered that making caramel is in no way terrifying). You’ll only need to heat up some sugar and a tiny bit of water in a pan and wait till it starts to colour.

Don’t whisk it, just move the pan a little bit. This recipe is different from other ice cream recipes I’m used to making. Recipe adapted from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream on Makes about 1 quart *Jeni uses a dry-burn technique to make the caramel, but I prefer using some water to the sugar. Like this: Like Loading...

Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry. Blackberry Mojitos. Kids always think that being grown up is soooo glamorous. Adults can do what they want, eat all the candy and junk food they want, stay up as late as they want, etc. And yeah, I guess that’s all true. But, being an adult is also expensive. Really expensive. Like… “holy crap, how did this routine car inspection turn into $1800 worth of repairs” expensive. Yeah. Needless to say, after the car-repair fiasco at the dealership this morning, Dan and I were feeling a little tense. Mojitos are one of my favorite cocktails, not only because they’re delicious but also because they require so few ingredients and are so easy to make. Sushi adores Dan. After a few mojitos and some homemade nachos, we’re definitely feeling a lot better about things.

Maryland Crab Cakes with Quick Tartar Sauce l Once Upon A Chef. When you live in Maryland, you eat crabs.

It’s a summer pastime: picnic tables covered with brown paper, silver buckets, buttered corn, french fries, and the unmistakable scent of seafood and Old Bay. It’s that time of year, and my mind is already drifting to all those weathered crab shacks at the Eastern Shore, where you can look out over the bay and put your feet in the sand. Is it August yet? Some people might be so daring, but I would not attempt an all-you-can-eat crab feast at home. (Live crabs, giant steamers…yikes!) I would, however, make crab cakes, which are just as delicious and super easy to prepare. The most important thing when you’re making crab cakes is to use fresh, good quality lump crab meat.

The other key to great crab cakes is to go light on the filler. I love them with the tartar sauce below, but you could also serve them with lemon wedges or cocktail sauce. Enjoy!
