Finally I made the Red bean bao..This has been in my todo list for a long long time! I am a big fan of the light and sweet steamed buns, every time I have it for breakfast I always wonder why I haven’t ever tried making this! As always I chose the easy method and got the readymade red bean paste .
Yesterday marked the first day of Chinese new year….. the Year of Rabbit.
Dear Pork, We meet again. This time things got intense.
I did a quick search so as not to clutter this board with redundant posts but only found post about savory filled buns.
This week we're turning away from all the holiday sweets to cook up some classic winter comfort food — food that is a little indulgent, perhaps, but nourishing nonetheless. And I couldn't let the week go by without looking back at one of my favorite biscuit-y breads from childhood: Butter dips!
Try as I might, I can’t make things perfect. I can make one cupcake in a batch look pretty dang awesome. From time to time my junk drawer has all of the pens in the same slot.
March 22, 2011 1:37 pm · Posted by Lauren G I looove refrigerated Pillsbury biscuits, mostly because I like popping open the can, but they're also delicious and easy to make. I wanted something different than just your everyday biscuit, so I looked up some recipes on the Pillsbury website.
Have you given up on making biscuits? Do they seem like too much trouble for the end result? I was kinda in that boat.
Stuffed Baguette A hollowed baguette obviously makes a perfect shell for any filling you are in the mood for. And once stuffed and properly chilled, it becomes a neat appetizer. This particular one is filled with all my favorite things: goat cheese/cream cheese, sun dried tomatoes, olives, spicy salami, crunchy bell pepper, and fresh herbs.
When I was growing up in South Texas we had this neighbor who would, on Saturday afternoons, make her tortillas for the week. Believe me, I made friends with her children so I could make myself available for tortilla day. I think she enjoyed my enthusiasm and always had a few extra tortillas for me to take home. They were sublime! My family would fight over them, and no matter how many she sent home with me they were always gone before dinner.
If you saw Ole’s Greek burger post, you may have been left wondering what kind of summer salad you’d pair that with. (I know you were.) It’s not like a regular, ol’ creamy coleslaw would do the trick there.
I’m totally ready for fall.
My friend Donna Natale Mason…what can I say other than that Texas is not nearly as colorful without her? She is a vibrant, loud, gorgeous bit of Texas stomping through the snow in Indiana in red cowboy boots.
Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite things to eat on Thanksgiving, but this year since I am pregnant and on a really strict low carb diet (for my diabetes) real mashed potatoes are out (bummer).
Not sure if you all recall, but a few months ago a reporter asked Kate Moss what one of her favorite quotes was. She replied with: “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” Umm…isn’t that hilarious…and sorta sad?
