Thursdays around here are now Thirsty Thursdays, where I’ll share recipes for cocktails, mocktails, and just plain old nectar of the gods like this Cold-Brewed Iced Coffee. (See also: Meatless Mondays and Tuesday Tips . It’s gettin’ all crazy and stuff here on the Kitchen Treaty blog.) I started making my iced coffee this way a couple of years ago, thanks to this New York Times recipe that convinced me to do so. You add coffee grounds to cold water and let it sit at room temperature for several hours.
I love a good stir fry and they are a great way to use up odds and ends of meat, vegetable and noodles. And let’s face it, they are a quick and easy dinner solution. Simply cook up some rice or throw in some noodles and it’s a family-pleasing meal.
I came across this cauliflower crust pizza on Pinterest, and was instantly intrigued. A low-carb pizza? Sign me up! I was skeptical, of course, but curious enough to try it and see how it tasted. I was pleasantly surprised by the results.
My sister-in-law Missy first introduced me to the concept of fruit pizza years and years ago, and here’s how: she brought one to my house and I proceeded to eat the whole thing. But it was small. And I was nursing. My mammary glands made me do it.
When Intelligentsia Coffee opened in Pasadena recently, I was intrigued the lasagna cupcakes they served. The cupcakes are made by Heirloom LA , a catering business. About the size of a muffin, a single lasagna cupcake was a delicious meal. After seeing how much my daughter enjoyed them (she ate my entire cupcake and I had to order a second one), I decided I had to try making them at home.
“Scalloped” is an attractive word, isn’t it? When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty. And of course scalloped potatoes also comes to mind, which carries my imagination to a land of crispy potato skins drenched in a sea of cheese and cream. I can think of no better place to exist, actually. So when I came across TK member Shelbi Keith’s recipe for Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes , I knew we were going to become fast friends.
I am so in love with these darn chocolate lava cookies! What is it about a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie stuffed with decadent, rich, melted chocolate that makes it so irresistible?? Especially when topped with vanilla ice cream. These are one of Kev’s favorite homemade treats, and he usually asks me to make them at least once a week. They are so simple to whip up, and such a treat!
Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries Can I just say that I have died and gone to heaven. Cheesecake stuffed strawberries….how have I not made these before?! I’m serious. They are amazing!
Today during my poetry writing class, I wrote my first poem about…blueberry yogurt. Isn’t it convenient that “dreamy” and “creamy” rhyme? And so do “bite” and “tight”? (“Tight” as in the synonym for “cool” used by people these days.) You can really learn a lot from poetry class.
Spinach and Goat Cheese Rolled Omelet After several weeks of nothing except smoothies and herbal tea for breakfast, you’d better believe that I’m craving some typical breakfast foods hardcore. Unfortunately bacon and sausage are out for just a couple more days, as are gluten-free waffles, pancakes, and the like. But organic eggs, spinach and goat cheese do make the cut. Only stipulation was it had to be after 5 p.m.
February 24, 2010 | By Adam Roberts | 111 Comments My mom loves Regis Philbin. Growing up, she’d watch Regis & Kathie Lee religiously; she even once went to a shopping mall, somewhere on Long Island, to get Kathie Lee Gifford to sign a copy of her book.
I’m always looking for easy and delicious recipes that can be made quick and with ingredients I already have. This next recipe is one of those. They turned out so gooey and yummy – you will definitely have to try it out for yourself! They will come out super gooey and delicious.
Jun 29 Not to sound full of myself, but I’m pretty sure this is the be all, end all of popsicle roundups. There’s a little something for everyone: the foodies, the purists, the ones who prefer frozen yogurt, the ones who prefer a little alcohol, everyone. Tweny-five options to be exact.
Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits. I like to order bacon with whatever I’m eating. I like eating potatoes with ketchup.
There’s a thing in my house that when you have ripe ol bananas either you make banana bread or banana fritters. These delicious tasty treats can be eaten morning, noon, or night, as a snack or as dessert. These fritters are so easy to make and will satisfy any craving you may have. So if you have a few of these bananas lying around your hose… don’t toss them, put them to GREAT use! Enjoy!
