Schnittlauch treibt im Frühjahr relativ früh aus. Der erste Schnitt ist farblich hellgrün und besonders fein. Daraus lässt sich ein wunderbarer Schnittlauchsalat zubereiten. Dieser Salat ist übrigens auch ein schöner Begleiter beim Biergartenbesuch. Münchner Schnittlauchsalat
Crispy Yogurt Chicken I love chicken legs. So does Marlboro Man. So do the punks. This means I’m always looking for new and interesting ways to cook them, since I’ve fried so many chicken legs in my life, I could fuel Airforce One for a year with the leftover oil.
Today I’m back with yet another Chinese-American dish – Orange Chicken. It seems as though you can find orange chicken almost anywhere you want to eat these days. It is most commonly found at fast food restaurants, but don’t worry, this is so much better than anything you will find there.

My mother makes the best apple cake, and has for as long as I can remember. Big cinnamon-y chunks of apple nestle into a coffee cake I would call “unbelievably” moist, but really, should not be hard to believe considering that my mother is also the one who brought us another of the best cake recipes on this site, The Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Cake . The cake gets better the second day, when the apples juices seep further into the cake and I have seen the conviction of many a chocolate-obsessed/fruit dessert non-believers crumble upon trying a single slice of it. The apple cake, it’s some good stuff. mom’s apple cake
This was our breakfast Sunday morning. Aren't they cute? They were very, very good.
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Slideshow
Steak au Poivre is one of those gorgeous meals that fills the house, is showy to make in front of guests and makes you want to curl into the couch after dinner, completely content and satisfied. Tenderloin filets are pan fried and then added to a rich, creamy pepper sauce. Sometimes you need a showstopper.
A homemade balsamic bbq sauce is used to glaze chicken as it’s grilling. The result is tender chicken with a slightly sweet, and tangy taste. Summer is one of my favorite seasons for one simple reason: grilling. We finally invested in a Big Green Egg last year and it completely changed the way I think about grilling. I could go on and on about it, but I won’t, because I’m sure I’ll be talking plenty about it in a few months when it’s not cold and wet here in the Midwest, and we actually get out to use it.
I call this magic sauce. In part, because it makes everything it touches shimmer with deliciousness. It's magic like that.
This morning I was looking at my home page and I realized that there is a lot of orange sweet potato and pumpkin going on. Considering the time of year I think it is very fitting. Maybe I should go red and green when Christmas comes around? Got any green and red recipes that I can try out for Christmas? In keeping with the autumn orange theme I got the idea to try a sweet potato gnocchi covered in gouda cheese sauce.
Do y’all remember the scene in Runaway Bride (that’s an Oscar contender if I’ve ever seen one…) where Julia Roberts realizes that she doesn’t know how she likes her eggs? You know, because she’s always turning herself into the girl that the guy she’s marrying wants to be with? Yeah. That’s not me.
441K+ A dd bacon to anything and it will fly off the table. That’s what a caterer once told me and I believe it. Certainly applies here. Whether you’re planning a cookout this weekend or cooking indoors (rain predicted here in Texas), grill up a few of these sizzling treats for a quick appetizer or serve as an entree. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than with a big plate of these spicy and cheesy , smoky and crispy chicken nuggets .
Roasted potatoes are pretty much my life. I’ve been told that I make one mean batch of roasted potatoes, and so I feel like it’s my civic duty to share the recipe with you today. There really isn’t anything that crazy that goes into these potatoes but I guess they are pretty much like crack. People, including my boyfriend, just can’t get enough of them.
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.
