Caramelized Kohlrabi Chips : eat in my kitchen After I stared at this stunning vegetable, a glowing purple kohlrabi, for about five minutes, I could see them right in front of my eyes: sweet, caramelized kohlrabi chips! Thin and sticky with crispy edges! Normally I buy green kohlrabi as that’s what I find at the market most of the time and to be honest, there isn’t really a difference in taste, but the deep colour, somewhere between red, blue and the faded green of the leaves makes me grab this one whenever I see it. As soon as it’s cut and sliced there isn’t much left of its outstanding beauty but that doesn’t matter, the taste makes up for it. Caramelized Kohlrabi Chips For a sweet nibble for 2 you need kohlrabi, peeled and thinly sliced with a cheese or vegetable slicer, 160g / 5.5 ounces butter 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar 1 tablespoon In a large heavy pan, melt the butter and sugar on a medium-high heat, add the vegetables and spread them flat next to each other.

bella eats - sharing food + photography from charlottesville va We have a special category for certain types of meals in our house: BHubb meals. As in, 'that's a BHubb dinner', which tranlates to 'that's the kind of dish that makes Brian, aka BHubb, a happy man'. Typically a BHubb meal is rich and heavy, and most often has some sort of pork product involved. Examples of BHubb meals from the past include Slow-Cooked Carnitas, Pappardelle with Spicy Pork Ragu, and Bacon Garlic Marinara with Homemade Meatballs. I knew going in that this Orecchiette Carbonara would get such a nod. This is a dish that I feel certain will make a frequent appearance at our table.

How to Make Cheese Straws Without a Recipe Here at Food52, we love recipes—but do we always use them? Of course not. Because once you realize you don't always need a recipe, you'll make your favorite dishes a lot more often. Today: Melina Hammer from Licking the Plate shows us how to make cheese straws worthy of the title "The Ultimate Finger Food." First, a disclosure: Being ignorant to the fact that cheese straws are originally Southern (by way of England!) Cheese straws are a lovely marriage of snacks of two opposing varieties: the most sophisticated—puff pastry (fancy, right?) The last point is perhaps the most important: As you season, fold, and twist, the dough can become flabby, and that makes it a lot harder to work with it without distortion. With those tips in mind, you're ready to make cheese straws: 1. It's important to use high-quality ingredients: Choose a good store-bought puff pastry (unless you’re in to making your own). 2. Then mix the cheese with the seasonings of your choice. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Crispy Baked Onion Rings. - Sallys Baking Addiction This is how I make onion rings in the oven, not the frier. They are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside without getting soggy. Like most of us, I made a resolution to keep January on the healthy side. To me that means not saying “no” to any food, but rather watching my portions. Other resolutions? One thing on my planner this month is onion rings. Have I ever told you about my love for onion rings before? True story: my sister almost bought me an “I put ketchup on my ketchup” t-shirt. I’m pretty sure we all can agree that onions taste so much better when they’re battered, fried, and dunked in ketchup. Don’t believe me? I’ve often wondered why onion rings cost more than French fries, but after making these at home, I can now appreciate the work that goes into making the perfect batch! Fried or not, there are a few things you must know ahead of time before making onion rings. Onion rings are so easy to make a little lighter. There are a lot of step-by-step photos for you today.
Soul Warming Butternut Squash Soup for #SundaySupper (gluten free) — Cupcakes & Kale Chips The #SundaySupper Group is amazing! Isabel, aka Family Foodie, our fearless leader, is often asking us for theme suggestions. When it was suggested to do a #SundaySupper to help get the word out about relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy victims, the crew jumped in. As a Jersey girl to the core (minus the big hair), this really touched my heart. Although my family and friends got through the storm safely, with only minimal losses (other than a loss of power, some for up to a week and a half), many of the places that I know and love have been devastated. At my house, we had a few small branches in the yard, and only lost power for about 40 hours. There is actually a story as to why I chose this soup as my recipe for this Sunday Supper. By the next morning, we were hearing reports of it potentially taking days or weeks to get power back. I ATE THE SOUP! 24 hours later, the lights came back on. The first time I made it, I used chicken broth, and the second time, I used veggie broth. Enjoy!
