Cider Vinegar Braised Chicken Thighs & Legs with Onions and Raisins This savory rhubarb thing seems to be working. So, I am going to give it another whirl. But, what next? Let’s see… We did an exotic chutney flavored braise with rhubarb and served it with pork. It seemed like an obvious first swat at using rhubarb in a savory way. Next we really pushed hard on the sour nature of rhubarb and pickled some as a garnish on a crunchy, nutty, creamy white asparagus and goat cheese salad.
A Fast Way to Bake Cookies: Use a Waffle IronFine Cooking | Apartment Therapy The Kitchn We don't have a waffle iron. It's one of those small appliances that's only good for one thing, and we don't eat that one thing often enough to warrant owning one. But if we could use it to make cookies? We saw this tip at Fine Cooking and were immediately intrigued. However, if you're someone who rations out her dough, baking just a couple of cookies at a time so that they're always hot and fresh, this could be a great method. We haven't tried this recipe, and we can't (see above note about not owning a waffle iron), but we're curious if anyone else has made cookies this way. • Get the recipe: Oatmeal-Chocolate Chip Waffle Cookies, from Fine Cooking Related: Fudge and Walnut Oatmeal Cookies (Image: Alexandra Grablewski)
Baked Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes & The Craving Chronicles I might be harboring a slight pumpkin obsession right now.

I’ve seen this one particular recipe popping up here and there for muffins that are supposed to taste like donuts. Now, I love donuts. Love love love.

Skinny Mashed Potatoes - StumbleUpon 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). I recently started researching alternatives to some of my favorite dishes because there is NO way my plate will be without a big ole pile of mash potatoes. I came across this recipe that uses cauliflower instead of potatoes. Hmmm not a big cauliflower fan so I wasn't sure. ***BEST MOCK mashed potatoes I have ever had! What you will need: 1 head of cauliflower 1 tablespoon of cream cheese1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic1/2 teaspoon of salt5 or so dashes of pepperChives for garnish Directions:Wash and cut cauliflower into small pieces. These were seriously unbelievable!
Magic Sauce Recipe I call this the magic sauce recipe. In part, because it makes everything it touches shimmer with deliciousness. It's magic like that. Technically, it's a riff on a chimichurri sauce - one that veered off the rails in a big way. Much tweaking has rendered it a distant second cousin. If that. Let's just start by putting one thing out there. It's as versatile as a black dress. - More Herb Recipes - - More Paprika Recipes - - More Quick Recipes - 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary leaves 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves 1 teaspoon fresh oregano leaves 2 teaspoons sweet paprika 2 medium cloves of garlic, smashed into a paste 1 well-crumbled bay leaf pinch of red pepper flakes 1/4 teaspoon + fine grain sea salt 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice Gently warm the olive oil over medium-low heat in a skillet or pan, until it is just hot.

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs Recipe TGIF, friends. Hope that you all have had a lovely week, and that a relaxing weekend lies ahead. I’m looking forward to some friend’s-birthday-celebrating, farmers-marketing, coffee-(friends)-dating, cake-baking, church-enjoying, and sleeping-inning here in my little corner of the world this weekend. OH, and the thing I’m perhaps most excited about — choir-directing. Did I mention on here that I’m leading an Easter choir at my church?! I’m kind of over the moon about it. Anyway, warm wishes coming your way for a good weekend ahead. Read more Ever since my friends and I met for a tapas happy hour at our neighborhood Spanish restaurant a few weeks ago, I’ve had sangria on my mind. So of course, when I found myself in the fruit section at the market this week trying to decide what kind of sangria to make for our weekly neighbor night, I immediately thought of sangria. …oh good grief, why had I never thought of this before? Sangria with All The Colors. The only reasonable solution, of course. ;)
Avocado Fries I have a particularly tragic memory of looking at rental houses with my friend when he first moved to LA and finding one that actually had an avocado tree in the backyard. I mean, a tree that was taller than the house and was heavy with ripe avocados This memory is tragic because my friend didn’t rent the house. If he had, I would have had a never ending supply to feed my avocado addiction.BTW – what are avocados, a vegetable? Tagged as: Aioli, Appetizer, Avocado, Fries
