It's magic like that. Technically, it's a riff on a chimichurri sauce - one that veered off the rails in a big way. Much tweaking has rendered it a distant second cousin. If that.

15 Minutes to Fame - Gnocchi for Beginners. And for Braggarts. May 19th, 2009 I just don’t know where to start. Sometimes a proper introduction to a recipe is so far out of reach & the spark just won’t catch – not so today. Too many options, which one to choose? I could tell you about bad timing. First things first, and most importantly: These gnocchi are heaven in a bowl… velvet-like cushions to your bite… a revelation to your tongue… I could go on and on and on. This is why I chose this recipe for a little cooking get-together in our kitchen two weeks ago, my ulterior motive: could I convince my friend Ulrike to take home this recipe and give it a shot herself? Armed with a new serving of confidence I called my friend Hande in Rome the other day. Meanwhile she and her husband not only called to report back – Hande was totally delighted with her gnocchi results and couldn’t stop raving – she made them in less then 10 (!) Now what about bad timing? Quick Ricotta gnocchi Recipe source: own creation, inspired by many others Prep time: ~15 minutes.


Peas and Crayons: Irish Nachos. One of the few things that can rival my love of veggies, is my love of cheese. If it came down to choosing between 6-pack abs and a daily serving [or three] of cheese, I'd choose the cheese. Hands-down. End of story. Actually I'm fairly certain this is why I don't currently rock a 6-pack. Crap. I work out. This is clearly the worst intro in the history of blogging. Irish Nachos [easily serves one, two, or an entire herd of hungry hungry hippos!] What's in it? T-rex chefs add some shredded chicken or pork and have at it vegansaurus chefs skip the cheese or add some daiya instead -- this dish is easily veganized and oh-so flavorful either way.

Toppings cheese [I grated two cheddar/mozzarella string cheeses] fresh or pickled jalapeno peppers greek yogurt guacamole ranch salsa tomatoes black beans black olives chopped green onion bell peppers or sweet mini peppers dried parsley, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, to taste ok that's cool and all... but how do I make it?! Set your oven to BROIL on high. Spicy Popcorn | Bake Your Day. Friday, January 17, 2014 Spicy Popcorn There are only a few things I love more than my multiple-night-per-week helping of popcorn – and that’s reader comments that give me amazing ideas to spice up my popcorn – literally. This month I was featured in our local magazine in an article talking about food bloggers.

The magazine featured my Cilantro-Lime Popcorn. I received some comments and emails after that feature and one included an idea for spicy popcorn…I immediately fell in love. When it really comes down to it, I am a butter-and-salt kind of girl but every now and then, a little spicy is right up my alley. I was thinking that this might be as good a time as ever to share it too because this treat will make the perfect football food. Or maybe you are like me and not so concerned with football, but will eat a bowl of this stuff while watching the latest episode of Parenthood or Nashville.
