I shared these Baked Polenta Triangles last week on the blog What’s Cooking with Ruthie, where I will be a monthly contributor on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. I made these for a recent open house that was being held at 2 in the afternoon. I always find that any party or special occasion in the middle of the afternoon can be a bit tricky to plan a menu for. It’s a good bit after lunch, but not quite dinner, so some sort of light snack is in order, but then you have to figure out if you should put out something sweet for the sugar craving guests or something a bit savory for those who are holding off on dessert until dinner……..so why not have both?! These baked polenta triangles that are adapted from a Woman’s Day recipe are definitely the perfect savory for your menu. Baked Polenta Triangles | High Heels To Hot Wheels
I first discovered panko bread crumbs back in 1999. Please don’t ask me how I know that; I just do. I remember vividly reading a recipe that contained panko bread crumbs, and I remember vividly that I was nursing my second baby, and I remember vividly that I was hormonal and desperate, and the next thing I knew I was ordering panko bread crumbs from some market in Chelsea that the magazine recommended. On the phone, of course, because although I had a computer at the time, I certainly wouldn’t have been cool enough to use it to order panko bread crumbs. Panko Mozzarella Sticks!

Everything you love about a baked potato loaded with cheddar, bacon and chives, in the form of a soup! I've had several requests to make-over this soup (You really like to challenge me, don't you!) I was a little stumped on how I was going to take something as carb rich as potatoes, with added fat like sour cream, cheese and bacon, light! I knew I had to hide a vegetable in this soup to bulk it up without added calories. My first attempt was parsnips, but the flavor was too overwhelming. My second attempt was cauliflower, knowing how much you all love my Creamy cauliflower puree recipe and it was a winner. Baked Potato Soup
Something about spring makes us want to set out fresh linens, bake up something dainty and sweet and sit down for afternoon tea. What better way to commemorate springtime celebrations like Mother's Day and wedding showers than with tea and stacks of delicate scones? Well-made scones are a wonderful thing, moist and tender, with buttery crumbs that cling to your chin. "They are fattening, indigestible and quite glorious," writes Jane Garmey in "Great British Cooking" (Random House, 1981). Like biscuits, their American counterpart, scones are as easy as pie for experienced cooks, but can be intimidating to everyone else.

On Wednesday my sister and I volunteered to make the soup supper to go with the Advent service at church. Before you go thinking I'm some kind of charitable, goodhearted soul, I must tell you that the only reason that I do it is because I LOVE COOKING. In case you hadn't figured that out yet.

Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes | Tasty Kitchen Blog - StumbleUpon “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.
Pupusa & Exequy's Blog i Rate This A pupusa is a traditional Salvadoran dish made of thick, hand-made corn tortilla (made using masa de maíz, a maize flour dough used in Latin American cuisine) that is usually filled with a blend of the following: cheese (queso) (usually a soft cheese called Quesillo found in all Central America), cooked pork meat ground to a paste consistency (called chicharrón, not to be confused with fried pork rind, which is also known as chicharrón in some other countries), refried beans (frijoles refritos), or queso con loroco (loroco is a vine flower bud from Central America). The two most common pupusas are the pupusa de queso (cheese) and more popular pupusa revuelta with mixed ingredients of queso (cheese), frijoles (beans), and chicharrón. Pupusas are typically served with curtido (lightly fermented cabbage slaw with red chilies and vinegar) and a watery tomato salsa. Pupusas are similar to the South American arepa.
Tea Etiquette In order for one not to spill the hot liquid onto oneself, the proper way to hold the vessel of a cup with no handle is to place one’s thumb at the six o'clock position and one’s index and middle fingers at the twelve o'clock position, while gently raising one’s pinkie up for balance. Tea cups with a handle are held by placing one’s fingers to the front and back of the handle with one’s pinkie up again allows balance.

This has been at the top of my list for nearly a year, a barely legible scratch of pencil on a half-sheet of printer paper: make onion dip. In my mind the task was straight-forward - do an onion dip make-over, a version that doesn't require ripping open a packet of soup mix. As a kid my grandma would often whip up bowl of onion dip before we would visit her house. She would serve it alongside a bowl of corn chips, and I suppose this is where my taste for it developed. I decided to do a grown-up version here by using lots of deeply caramelized onions along with a Greek yogurt and sour cream base. I used dehydrated onions to give my dip that signature onion dip flavor, and to counter-balance the sweetness of the caramelized onions. Caramelized Onion Dip Recipe

Did you know that popcorn has more protein than any other cereal grain, more iron than spinach, more phosphorous than pretzels, and almost as much fiber as bran flakes? Yeah, me neither. I already knew that popcorn was a healthy snack choice to make because it so low in calories, but wow! With impressive credentials like that, I am beginning to think I should eat popcorn more often.
