New York is having a surprisingly chilly week, so we've been craving comfort foods, like tomato soup with a gooey grilled cheese sandwich . There's nothing cozier and more bolstering on a cool day, or a lazy Sunday evening at home, don't you agree? Luckily, Helene from Tartelette has agreed to share her recipe for the perfect warm-you-up-and-hit-the-spot tomato soup... The Best Roasted Tomato Soup With Tomato Parmesan Croutons By Helene from Tartelette
“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.
Happy 2011 everyone! I’m currently suffering from mild depression since school started up again yesterday, but I’m very thankful to have had such a relaxing break. Puerto Rico was a blast, Christmas was great with my family, and Ryan and I celebrated NYE in NYC with some of our closest friends. I read good books, watched plenty of trashy TV (new addiction: American Pickers, anyone else?) , and of course did some baking.
Going back to yesterday… I want to clarify something in: Tips for Food Bloggers . It’s not that anyone else said anything, but when I re-read the post, I felt like one of my messages was unclear.
I had an epiphany this morning: My priorities are wack. A typical day for me starts with rolling out of bed when I finally feel too guilty to stay in bed any longer. Then I immediately pop open the laptop and check my multiple email accounts, facebook, reader, and news settling myself in our oversized chair which is much easier to climb into then climb out of.
Hello everyone! Welcome! Thanks for stopping by! Here is my version of a pepperoni roll. It is soooo delicious! I have learned that there are some pretty fantastic pepperoni rolls in West Virginia...I would love to try one some day.
I've seen this adorable Easter birds nest recipe many years in many places, but never got around to making them until this year. Could be because I have a three year old, could be because of this website, or both, but I made them, and everyone loved these cute little nests. Ingredients: 4 cups Chow Mein Noodles 3 cups Marshmallows ¼ cups Margarine Or Butter Candy Eggs Directions:
I found these helpful charts last week and just had to share! Both of these beauties are from Chasing Delicious (aka one of the most fab foodie blogs out there)! Aren’t they faaaaabulous?! Buy them here . (Note: There are lots of little charts like this online, but these are my favorites).
I went to see tUnE-yArDs on Monday night with some friends, and as always we wanted to cook a meal that somehow related to the show we were heading to. Sometimes this is hard to do , but other times it seems to come naturally . Finding culinary inspiration in Merrill's lyrics seemed like it would be tough, but my sister knew what she wanted to make without hesitation.
Valentine's day is exactly one month away and I'm elbow deep in chocolate recipes. I've been searching for ideas and inspiration for sweet, edible tokens of affection. Recently while watching a food show on TV, I saw chocolate soup being served at a popular chocolate bar/buffet.
I am definitely a Fall and Winter person. I love feeling all snuggly in a hoodie and throwing on lots of cozy layers. So even though it hit 95 here in Denver today, I couldn’t get my mind off of making some soup in a bread bowl! My garden has been overflowing with ripe Roma tomatoes, so a creamy tomato soup just seemed right. For the bread bowl, I just used this recipe from my previous French Bread post , except this time around I used 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 all-purpose.
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.
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?
This ganache is different. It is special. It is not like a normal ganache with just heavy cream and chocolate. It has brown sugar added to it. Just that one simple component makes it ridiculous (in a good way). A rich, caramel-y taste that just melts the minute you bite in.
Ya know, I really should start paying closer attention to where I get my recipes from. The online recipes are easy cause I usually just email them to myself, but whenever I get something from outside the Internet, I never seem to remember where it came from. This I found in a magazine...I want to say Women's Day, or Family Circle...maybe Cooking Light. I don't know.
