Compass Group USA. Strawberry Cheesecake Chimichangas Recipe. Tomorrow morning I’m flying to Austin, Texas for the annual BlogHer Food conference, and I could think of no better sendoff than a southern-inspired sweet that pays homage to a Tex-Mex favorite: chimichangas. For all those unfamiliar with the dish, chimichangas are essentially deep-fried burritos filled with a variety of savory fillings, such as pulled pork or beef, beans, rice and cheese. But given that I can’t go a day without a bite of something sweet, I dreamt up a dessert version that stars a homemade strawberry cheesecake filling rolled inside flour tortillas.

The stuffed tortillas go for a quick dunk in boiling oil and a final swish in cinnamon and sugar. The result is a twist on traditional cheesecake that swaps pillowy tortillas for the classic graham cracker crust. But the sweetness doesn’t end there! I’m headed to Austin with the KitchenAid team, and they’re extending a pretty sweet giveaway with the chance to win a KitchenAid Stand Mixer, color of your choice. Oreo Mousse - BigOven 497498. Caramel Apple-Brownie Cheesecake Recipe. 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly toasted and fragrant, stirring halfway through. Reduce oven temperature to 325°. Sprinkle pecans over bottom of a greased and floured shiny 9-inch springform pan. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. Soft Boiled Egg in a Biscuit. Today I’m going to share with you, one of the best things I’ve put into my mouth this year.

It may not be much to look at from the outside, but crack these babies open and the fluffy cheddar and chive biscuit parts to reveal a soft boiled egg with a molten gold core. It may look like some kind of sorcery, but I assure you, there were no spells involved in the making of these magical biscuits. I wish I could lay claim to this brilliant idea, but I first saw something like this at Craftsman and Wolves in San Francisco, and I belive the idea comes from Texas baked eggs, where muffin tins are lined with biscuit dough and filled with a raw egg before being baked. The trouble with baking the eggs without being covered is that the top inevitably gets a little rubbery by the time the biscuit dough cooks through. By enclosing the whole egg in dough, it protects the egg, keeping it from drying out. Equipment you'll need: Votes: 74 Rating: 4.42 You: Rate this recipe!

Can't find an ingredient? Better-Than-Fried Chicken Thighs with Lemon—Genius Recipes. Every week—often with your help—Food52's Executive Editor Kristen Miglore is unearthing recipes that are nothing short of genius. Today: Kristen is gallavanting around on the Genius Recipes cookbook tour, so she's sharing an excerpt from the book (and a new favorite chicken recipe). "Short of turning chicken on a spit over live wood embers, I know of no better process for cooking chicken, nor one that delivers more satisfying or true flavors,” Paul Bertolli wrote of this technique, which he calls "bottom-up cooking," in Cooking by Hand. You don’t sear, and you don’t roast, and you don’t grill—you don’t do any of the things we’re taught to do to chicken.

Instead, you lay the chicken, skin side down, in a barely hot pan. Then you leave it mostly alone for about 30 minutes, flipping only once. Bertolli’s is a worthy technique to play with, but Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer of Canal House have streamlined it for us.

We thought we were brilliant when we thought we had come up with Green Goddess Grilled Cheese, but realized that another TasteSpotter had beat us to the green, herbaceous, garlicky punch… We love PaniniHappy’s version with the green goddess herbs mixed directly into cream cheese, but ours is a little different. We made a fresh herb pesto with the standard Green Goddess herbs, plus a sneaky handful of kale (which is now going to be a staple condiment in our kitchen), spread it onto the bread, added sliced avocado, fresh baby spinach, and goat cheese. Green Goddess Grilled Cheese Sandwich based on all those gorgeous green goddesses out there… makes 1 sandwich.
