After getting married, one of the first things we learned to make was fried chicken. With a husband whose Grandmother had award-winning chicken frying skills, it was a quick realization that we too would soon be learning the trade. Even though a fryer lives in our pantry, we don't bother. With techniques that are simple and are sure to produce perfect results each time...just make sure to lock the front door so you don't have neighbors following their noses into your kitchen!
Bread Pudding ranks up there with rice pudding for me. And when I say "ranks up there", I mean, "YUCK". I have a thing with soggy carbs. They just shouldn't exist. As I was growing up, my father used to pour a bowl of Fiber One cereal and let it soak on the counter for a half an hour before eating it every morning. I would walk through the kitchen and gag.
There are just some things that were made to be together. Peanut butter and jelly , tomatoes and basil and best of all, caramels and bacon. There was a caramel bacon fad a year ago, but we wanted to change things up a bit... The bacon caramels that swept the internet last year had the bacon fully submerged into the caramel before cooled. We made a batch or two of this method and weren't too fond of it's mouth-feel. The bacon was soggy and didn't hold it's own against the sweet and full bodied caramels.
Have all of you apartment dwellers been waiting for a new Grilling Month recipe that can be made indoors, on a grill pan ? You have? Well, here you go. We made these peaches on a charcoal grill at a friend's house AND on our own grill pan once we got home.
It all started with a craving for bread pudding and an emergency substitution of coconut milk for regular milk ... One idea led to another, and pretty soon we were whipping up a dessert rich with the Indian-inspired flavors of coconut, cardamom, and pistachio. In fact, we loved this coconut version so much that we never returned to making bread pudding with plain old cow's milk! The first time we made this, we added golden raisins but those have since been replaced with candied ginger, which pairs even more wonderfully with the pistachios and cardamom. We also like using jaggery , a full-flavored, unrefined sugar found in Indian markets, but if you don't already have it in your pantry, regular granulated sugar is fine.
When we're feeling indulgent, nothing quite hits the spot like a buttery, flaky turnover. Particularly one stuffed with such delicious offerings as this this one. The secret weapon to these turnovers is store-bought puff pastry. It's super easy to use and ever so slightly easier than making our own.
When I decided to visit Taiwan for two weeks to learn about their food culture, my boyfriend could not have been more excited. He's the type that can eat Asian cuisine 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week. (Unfortunately I'm the opposite. I could survive off of pizza for the rest of my life but only prefer takeout every few months.) He eagerly hoped that I would return with not only a new found passion for Chinese food, but all the secrets to their cooking, as well. Luckily for him, I did return with a few new tricks up my sleeve and an arsenal of recipes to try.
What if you could turn banana pudding into ice cream? Or pie? Even better, what if you could turn banana pudding into ice cream pie? Well guess what, it's your lucky day! I've had a lot of bananas around lately for various recipes I've been testing, and there's only so many loaves of banana bread this girl can make.
We don’t know what we’d do without baked apples! If we’re not feeling like making something elaborate and just want an easy, fresh dessert to top off the evening, this is where we turn. Take a look…
My boyfriend (wait, make that fiancé!) recently made a special request. He asked to purchase a wok, in the event that it remain exclusively his.
What do you do with old bananas? Do you throw them in the freezer, to wait for a batch of banana bread? Lately, instead of banana bread, I've been making this banana cake. It's moist and luscious, and it is a very easy dessert for a crowd; it will feed at least 10! And lately, since blueberries are everywhere, I've been adding ripe, juicy blueberries, too.
Some days you just have to go all out. Maybe you have soft cheeses and crackers before dinner, open a bottle of good wine, make spaghetti and meatballs and then decide that garlic bread is also important. When you can't stop thinking about garlic bread, this is the recipe for you.
Potato latkes are such humble little things , yet so incredibly addictive. This version puts the traditional applesauce topping on the inside, where it gets warm and wonderful as the latkes cook. We love adding cubes of cheese to the filling, too. They melt into pockets of cheesy goodness and add extra savory depth to this classic dish. For this recipe, we’re essentially making a fresh applesauce and sandwiching this between two layers of potato pancake.
