Bloomin’ Onion Bread

Bloomin’ Onion Bread
My husband and I waited tables at Outback Steakhouse while we were in college and ate our share of Bloomin’ Onions. But the funny thing is we never actually ordered them. If a table ordered a Bloomin’ Onion and canceled the order, the onion would sit in the window until another table ordered one which was usually just a matter of minutes. But every once in a while there would be a lull where no orders would come in and the “Bloom” was pronounced “dead”, meaning it would not be served to customers, and all the servers got to eat it. For some reason we always came to work starving so when this happened we ate our little hearts out. I don’t know if there are other servers out there but I still have reoccurring nightmares where I’m in the weeds with all of my table – everyone needs a drink refill and all of my orders are wrong. This naughty Bloomin’ Onion Bread has cheese stuffed in every crack and is cut just like the Bloomin’ Onion from Outback. Ingredients Instructions Notes

My Adventures In The Country When I heard this month’s Kitchen Bootcamp Challenge was potatoes, I was pumped. Originally, I had great plans for the sweet potatoes still in my basement from last fall, but after researching and chatting with the hubby, I decided to go with Yukon Gold potatoes instead. My husband isn’t a huge fan of sweet potatoes and I wanted to make something he would enjoy too, so that’s how I settled on this oven roasted potato recipe. Yukon Golds are our favorite potato to grow in the garden and they absolutely melt in your mouth when freshly dug from the garden. But oddly enough, I’ve never actually roasted them in the oven. Of course, I’ve added them to a roast with carrots and onions and celery, you know the usual, but never on their own.

The Pastry Affair - Home - Garlic Parmesan Pull-Apart Bread I once made the driest pancake in the world. I can see you sitting at home, staring at your computer screen, and scoffing at my bold statement. Driest pancake in the world? Dijon Chicken Club Sandwiches By the time I get home from work, I often don't feel like cooking a big meal. But if I've done some of the prep work in advance, it becomes really easy. This is pretty much my weekday plan. If I didn't do this, we would end up eating out a lot more often, or making frozen pizzas. When ever I grill chicken, I make a couple extra pieces so that I have leftovers for salads or sandwiches during the week. If I'm making a meat sauce for pasta, I like to double the meat and put half of it away to make a pizza or tacos later in the week.

Penne with Roasted Asparagus and Balsamic Butter Let me take the liberty of ordering you around for a second: 1) Get yourself to the store and buy some fresh asparagus. Now. (Pretty please.) 2) Come home. Deep Dish Spinach Pie My kid and husband are big fans of Ina Garten’s Spinach in Puff Pastry recipe. We’ve made it many times making little adjustments along the way. This time turned it into a deep dish pie and my kid went wild. The birthday boy was pretty pleased as well. Beer Battered Onion Rings One day, months ago, after Ben and I were watching a show on the Food Network about fried foods, Ben had asked me to recreate the beer battered onion rings that were featured. Knowing I’m not one to frequently bust out a vat of oil to “waste” on frying, I quickly filed his request in the very back of my mind. No, seriously, the very back shelf of my brain that is probably full of dust and other undesirable recipe requests. Onion rings have never been one of my favorite foods. The only time I’ve ever had them was when someone else ordered them at a restaurant and shared one or two with me.

Homemade Stuffed Pizza Crust Recipe I think there are very few who can vouch and say that they DON'T like Pizza! Its not the healthiest thing to be munching around all the time, but then on occasion when you enjoy it, nothing competes the heartiness and deliciousness of a yummy pizza! I have had my share of pizzas and am at a stage when I can look at a Pizza and not go Ga-ga over it. There is no more salivating or uncontrollable drooling over a dominoes pizza crust. But sometimes on those rare occasions that it does - I need to devour a pizza right then and there. I cannot wait for those 45-60 minutes for the pizza man to arrive!

Roasted Baby Potatoes Wow...these look like little pillows of perfection! I am such a potato junkie! Love this recipe! Artichoke bottoms with pasta and shrimp This dish (concocted at the spur of the moment) reminded me of a conversation I had with a foodie friend in Beirut; we were discussing artichokes and that exquisite Lebanese dish of stuffed artichoke bottoms with minced lamb and yogurt; I mentioned I used frozen bottoms imported from Egypt. His reaction was: “What? You are supposed to get fresh artichokes and (slave over) peel them and clean them up and then get their bottoms” is what he said. Yeah, right!
