Cast Iron Pizza I’m not really sure why it never dawned on me to make pizza in my cast iron skillet. After all, Chicago pizzerias use cast iron to make deep dish pizza and it has qualities that are sure to make for good pie. Namely, it gets really hot and stays really hot.
My, it's a busy week over here at Runs With Spatulas. Not only are we in the middle of a giveaway , but have also made homemade bagels and now have been awarded not one, but two Stylish Blogger Awards from Vanilla Clouds and Lemon Drops and Picture-Perfect Meals . Rules, rules.
A lot of folks have asked me for this recipe. It’s one of The Angry Chef’s signature dishes, and I was lucky to pry it away from him. This recipe is a dream come true for garlic lovers like me. It’s tart and garlick-y and oh-so-fragrant in all the right ways. (As a bonus, you’ll surely be safe from vampires for the evening.)
Written by Jenny - Now is the time of the year where graduation and other family celebrations, both inside and outside the house are happening. I do have a list of recipes that I keep to make for these occasions but sometimes I like to change things up a little by providing something new. This new Creamy Vegetable Lasagna recipe does the trick! It’s meatless, colorful, creamy, easy to make and delicious.
Featured in Gourmet Live’s Weekly Roundup: The Best of Beef You know you want it. It’s another installment of Oma’s cooking class. Like all of Oma’s meals, Oma’s One-Hour Homemade Spaghetti Sauce is simple, hearty and delicious. However, as I’m sure you know by now from my posts on Oma’s Old-Fashioned Pot Roast and Oma’s Cheesy Tuna Casserole , Oma isn’t fancy. And I’ll be the first to admit that I’m sort of a foodie who likes the occasional flash of fancy in her meals.
Posted March 24th, 2011 by scaron It’s pizza night! (No, really, it is. We’re having pizza tonight!)
Lasagne is on my top 5 comfort food list. It's been one of my favorite meals since I can remember. This vegetarian recipe is simply divine. The four cheeses are Friulano, Parmigiano Reggiano, sliced fresh mozzarella and ricotta. If you can't find Friulano cheese, you can use any italian mild cheese such as Fontina.
Steamed Dumplings…a food from my childhood. Not just any type of food though – the kind I would get super excited about whenever they were in my future. It was an event – not just a meal. We had a long counter where all the dumpling wrappers would be laid out – we would scoop some filling into the center of each, then take some water – and with our fingers dab water on the edge of half the circle.
A few months ago a friend of mine started an email recipe exchange with several of her friends. Although I’m not exactly hurting to find new recipes, I was excited to join the group and see what everyone would share each month. I’m embarrassed to say that since I have so many recipes already bookmarked from cookbooks and food blogs, I haven’t had a chance to try hardly any of the new recipes from the email exchange.
There was a cooking program that I used to love called Simply Magic. It is an Australian cooking show presented by Kylie Kwong and it features Chinese food. Her recipes are healthy, made with fresh ingredients, and they are attainable in a home kitchen.
A long time ago I shared a house with a friend of mine who was of Italian descent. Part Sicilian, part Neapolitan his parents always made sure the house was stocked with home made goodies. Every month there would be a delivery of bottled tomato sauce, home made lasagna , crostoli and his mothers home made gnocchi .
When my husband asked me what we were having for dinner this past Sunday, “pot stickers” came out of my mouth before I really even thought about it. Apparently, my stomach knew what it wanted before my brain had time to register it. Once I said it I was committed which really isn’t a bad thing. I’d actually had making homemade pot stickers on the back burner since I started my food blog, so we are going on three years. That’s a pretty long time to be meaning to make something.
I was scrolling through my photos the other day and realised that I had never posted this piece about sushi I wrote the Irish Independent last year. There are some really nice little sushi recipes, which even if you’ve never tried making it yourself, make it seem all a little more manageable… Laura Kenny, an architecture student from Sutton, Dublin, likes to run her cook club a little bit differently.
If there was one thing I could eat almost every day and not get tired of, it would probably be pizza. A thin, crisp base topped with almost anything you can imagine, what could be better than that? It helps too, that it is so easy to make from scratch.
Here’s a goody from the archives. A number of you have tried this recipe for Coca-cola Chicken wings that I first posted in March 2011. You wouldn’t guess just how delicious it is based on the simple ingredients.
