Baked Spinach Dip Mini Bread Bowls
Baked Spinach Dip Mini Bread Bowls anyone? These are cute aren’t they. I thought it would be fun to share some fun Superbowl/party food this week to get ready for game day. It’s no secret that I am only interested in the commercials and half time performances of Superbowl but I do LOVE to make party food, so let’s celebrate with fun food Stay tuned for some great NYC pictures coming this week, I had so much fun in the big apple last week. Here are your ingredients, nice and simple. I LOVE that Pillsbury put out a “Simply” line of products. Unroll your french bread loaf and cut into 10 equal slices, about 1 inch thick. Flatten each slice with the palms of your hands about a 3 inch round. Press in the bottom and up the sides of your muffin tin. Time to cook the spinach, watch it wilt in seconds Now add your garlic and stir it all up for a good minute or so. Place your cream cheese, sour cream, spinach and parmesan cheese into a mixing bowl. Here’s the yummy part. Don’t forget the garlic salt. Related:  Food

Honey Lime Shrimp | The Dough Will Rise Again On Sunday, my husband decided he wanted me to pick up some fish at the grocery store for dinner that night. Now, I am not the world’s biggest fish fan. I can tolerate it in some cases, but most types of fish are unappealing to me (with the exception of shellfish, which I love – our collective love of shrimp is well-documented on this blog). Honey Lime Shrimp serves 2 1/2 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined 1/4 cup olive oil 2 T honey juice of one small lime, or half a large lime (2-3 T) zest of one small lime, or half a large lime 2 cloves garlic, smashed 1/2 tsp kosher salt 1/4 tsp black pepper 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes 1.) 2.) 3.) 4.) I am a big fan of these shrimp – the sweet honey got a little caramelized and crunchy in the hot pan, and the red pepper flakes and lime add just enough kick to cut through the sweetness. Shrimp: they’re the fruit of the sea! Like this: Like Loading...

Equivalencias: de tazas a gramos y mililitros - Lujos Cotidianos Los americanos tienen excelentes recetas de galletas, bizcochos, madalenas... pero, desgraciadamente, ellos miden los ingredientes por su volumen, en tazas, en vez de por su peso. Desde mi punto de vista es mejor comprar un set de tazas (taza entera, media, cuarto y tercio de taza) para no complicarse la vida. Pero si encontráis una receta que queréis hacer de inmediato y no tenéis el juego de tazas a mano, aquí está mi lista. Esta lista de equivalencias la he hecho pesando los ingredientes. Sin más rollos aquí os la dejo. Harina y azúcar glass Por otro lado, con las tazas también se pueden medir líquidos. 1 taza= 240 ml.1/2 taza= 120 ml.1/3 taza= 80 ml.1/4 taza= 60 ml.Espero que os sea útil. Hasta la próxima semana.

Easy Oven Roasted Potatoes I served these potatoes with our Honey Lime Chicken. I am not a huge potato fan, but I really liked these. I like my potatoes crispy, so I made sure to slice them really thin. This was a really simple side dish and I am already planning on making it again. There are so many flavors that could be used on these potatoes. Easy Oven Roasted Potatoes(Printable Recipe) 2 large potatoes, scrubbed 3 Tbsp olive oil 1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning 1 tsp salt 4 Tbsp Parmesan cheese Slice potatoes into very thin slices (1/4 inch). big ziploc bag to coat the potatoes. Yogurt Griego Casero Vale aclarar que si bien se lo conoce como griego, no es patrimonio únicamente de ese país, sino que se prepara de la misma manera en muchos otros lugares. Queda delicioso endulzado con un poco de miel. Sólo, o como acompañamiento de frutas frescas o compotas. Como dip, condimentado con un poco de sal, pimienta y aceite de oliva, y también en ensaladas, como por ejemplo, la Raita, típica de la India. Como el yogurt griego tiene la base de una yogurt natural casero, voy a explicar primero como se hace el yogurt natural. Yogurt natural casero Para 2 litros: * 2 litros de leche * 1 pote de 200 grs. de yogur natural Para mayor precaución, estilizar la cacerola y las cucharas que se van a usar: acomodarlas dentro de una cacerola más grande, cubrirlos con agua y hervirlos durante cinco minutos. Poner al fuego la cacerola esterilizada y verter en ella los dos litros de leche. Pasado este tiempo, los dos litros de leche se habrán convertido en yogur. Ahora si, pasemos al yogurt griego:
