Seeing as how just about every recipe you come across these days includes bacon in one way or another, composing this list was a bit of a challenge. An awesomely delicious challenge, but still a challenge. After lots of searching, cooking and sampling, we can proudly say that these are The Web’s Best Recipes With Bacon: The Manwich First off, make sure you buy some solid bread when you’re making The Manwich.
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 pound lean ground beef 1 large egg 1/2 cup finely chopped white onion 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
When I tried the Japanese cheesecake with the very first bite, I have been fallen in love with it ever since. The velvety smooth, creamy, as well as the fluffy texture makes this kind of cheesecake stand out the crowd. The cheesecake is not too sweet, yet just enough to entertain your sweet tooth if you have one. Mind you, the cooking method makes the cheesecake very light, you’d feel you don’t have enough even after having a big slice of it. A case in point, over half of the cheesecake was gone shortly after I placed it in the fridge.
I receive a lot of questions about me and my blog. I thought it would be fun to collectively gather some questions I have been asked so you can get to know me better and maybe find some of the stuff useful for you. Q: What made you start this blog? A: I have always loved to cook/bake and came from a mom who is an AMAZING cook. People were always asking for both mine and my mom's recipes, and instead of always emailing them out, I decided to start storing them on a blog so they were accessible to all my friends and family. Q: Where did you come up with the name "Chef in Training"?
If you don’t love the bubbly wonderfulness of piping hot garlic cheese bread, write this date on your calendar. Because that’s all about to change. Here’s what you need: Butter. One stick. Softened.
Farewell, blue box. You have been forever replaced. I don’t care if you are ready to eat in less than 30 minutes. Your successor boasts gooey, real cheese bubbling underneath a breadcrumb topping… I’m melting just thinking about it. Have I mentioned before how I adore the Smitten Kitchen blog? Well, I do.
From the molten yolk and bacon crunch of a hand-held breakfast, to the gooey charm of grilled cheese for lunch, nothing matches the simple pleasures of well-made sandwiches. They're quick to assemble, infinitely adaptable, easy to eat, and immediately satisfying—the very definition of good food. The 25 sandwiches you're about to meet can be thrown together during the average basketball halftime or, with practice, during the seventh-inning stretch. (Who needs hot dogs, anyway?)
Can you believe 2011 is almost over? Where did the year go? 2011 was a pretty great year, especially for this little blog of mine. Over the last 12 months, we have picked up lots of new friends along the way. And let me tell you–you guys are not afraid to tell me when you HATE a recipe or when you LOVE a recipe.
We can blame lollipops for the undeniable appeal of enjoying a treat on a stick. Then came corndogs and popsicles, and the rest is history. Now delectable foods of many varieties are popping up on cute wooden sticks. When it comes to little hands and messy eating habits, the help of a stick will make sweet treats a bit easier to enjoy. These 16 recipes beg you to think beyond the hugely popular cake pops, to create the Web’s Tastiest: Dessert on a Stick.
“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’ve had a few requests over the last few weeks for some smoothie recipes because I let it slip that Betsy and I generally just have a big smoothie for breakfast everyday. Turns out our daily smoothie recipe is a mix between yellow, red, and indigo, but that’ll make more sense to you later. Smoothies can be so varied I really struggled for awhile on how to present a wide spectrum of recipes in one post. That was, of course, until I saw a guy riding a bike last weekend with a rainbow sticker on his backpack. When I saw the rainbow I thought, now those would be some awesome smoothies!
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.
Helloooo! It has been so freaking hot in Los Angeles the past few weeks it makes me angry to think about it. I have been lucky enough to have a break in work where I have some days off in a row. It’s weird though; I don’t know what to do with myself with all this free time. I have primarily been spending it drinking iced coffee in bed and powering through seasons and seasons of the West Wing.
