Mushroom Melts with Mustard Aioli What if I told you that this was the best thing I’ve eaten in weeks? I mean, I know I’m dramatic and all and according to some people, use the term “the best” way too loosely. And I’ve eaten many things over the course of the last few weeks, including but not limited to my fair share of burgers, multiple sushi rolls, pizzas upon pizzas and wine. I think I had wine for dinner one night, actually. It happens. But yeah. This is my absolute new favorite spread. It has pretty much changed my life. These are slightly similar to those red wine roasted mushroom and goat cheese toasts I shared a few weeks ago, except, um… they are totally different. Can you tell I’m in love? I know some of you may not be down with eating a raw egg yolk, so if you’re young or old or with child or just not thrilled with that idea, Bobby Flay has one without. In the meantime, you might want to try this for breakfast or lunch or dinner or a snack. Or e). all of the above. Print Mushroom Melts with Mustard Aioli Ingredients:

Bourbon Sweet Potato Bisque with Brown Butter Cinnamon Sugar Croutons Hi hi. How are things? How was your weekend? What did you do? Where did you go? How annoying is that? Here are some things I did that you probably don’t care about but I will force feed you anyway. I watched the Beyonce HBO special, which I’ve only been waiting to watch for, oh, like the entire three months they’ve been advertising it. Also, I totally drove around blasting the Josh Groban CD and singing along, only realizing once I was pulling into my driveway that “singing along” meant I was belting some slow music with a weird opera-like face because when you sing along to Josh Groban and you don’t have a Josh Groban voice, you look like a cartoon character or a cast member of an SNL skit. Yesterday I spent 35 minutes fishtail braiding my hair, which is epically pointless because my hair has about five thousand layers. Oh and I single-handedly consumed a whole wedge of humboldt fog chèvre and decided it might be an every weekend splurge. This soup can be in real life though. So do you.
How to Make Bagels: A Users Manual at Epicurious.com - StumbleUpon While making bagels may seem challenging to home cooks, it's actually not as complicated as you might think. But before we get into the specific recipe and bagel-making process, let's explore a few urban myths: Do You Need a Special Type of Flour to Make Bagels? No. Bagel shops often use a type of high-gluten flour to achieve that distinctively chewy texture and to stand up to the rigors of mass production, but you can opt for more readily available unbleached bread flour and still achieve fantastic results. Is Barley Malt Syrup Essential to That Distinctive Bagel Taste? Yes and no. Barley malt syrup is available at most supermarkets, but if you can't find it, use brown rice syrup, honey, or agave. Can You Make Good Bagels in One Day? While not a difficult or labor-intensive process, bagel making is a two-day affair. Must True Bagels Be Boiled or Can They Be Steamed? Well…some successful bagel companies use steam ovens instead of boiling kettles.
How To Make The Creamiest Nacho Cheese - The Huffington Post Have you ever wondered how the pros at restaurants make cheese nachos? It always seems the cheese sauce is creamier than anything else. That's because the cheese they use is top-quality and the recipe starts out as a sauce. It isn't just melted cheese. Don't get us wrong, there's nothing wrong with melted cheese on nachos. But you have to eat them really fast before the cheese solidifies, otherwise it's like eating chips with yellow rubber on top! The secret to making great cheese sauce to top your tortilla chips is first by making a roux, which is basically whisking flour into melted butter (see our how-to on making roux). Watch the video and get the recipe below. 2 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons flour 1 cup milk, warmed 8 slices cheddar cheese 1/2 teaspoons salt Tortilla chips Jalapeno peppers, optional 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
Chocolate Cheesecake Cake | RecipeGirl.com - StumbleUpon Chocolate Cheesecake Cake You know how some people really don’t get along well with their In-Laws? How visits with them are stressful and awkward and generally awful for many people? Yeah, not me. It happened to be my dear Father-in-Law’s birthday last weekend. If you followed my blog over the holidays, you may have seen me make that oh-so-yummy Red Velvet Cheesecake Cake. I always, always bake my cheesecakes in a “water bath.” That baked cheesecake is popped into the freezer and allowed to freeze up nice and firm. In case you’re wondering how I got my cake layers to bake up so even and flat… nope, I did not trim them. The frosting recipe I used is also from the Piece of Cake cookbook- Sour Cream Chocolate Frosting. It’s a pretty fudgy frosting, so I’d say it’s not great for trying to pipe decorations. And I shaved some chocolate on top. I guess I have to say it. So… I’m curious…do you get along with your in-laws?
Honey Mustard Chicken with Bacon and Mushrooms | Everyday Home Cook - StumbleUpon “This is probably my favorite way to eat chicken.” That’s a quote from my husband the last time I made Honey Mustard Chicken with Bacon and Mushrooms for dinner. Marinate some chicken breasts in honey, mustard, and lemon, then top with bacon, mushrooms and cheese… How could that go wrong? I love to serve this dish with a side of oven fries and a crisp lettuce salad. It’s a meal full of flavor! Begin by making the marinade for the chicken. Here’s what you’ll need for the toppings: sliced fresh mushrooms, mostly cooked bacon (it will cook more when baked in the oven), grated cheddar, and fresh parsley. After the chicken has marinated, heat a small amount of oil in a large skillet. Scrape out the pan, and toss in the mushrooms. Assemble the chicken in a large baking dish. After baking for about 20 minutes, chop up some fresh parsley and sprinkle atop before serving! Honey Mustard Chicken with Bacon and Mushrooms 1 to 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
A Cozy Kitchen Broccoli and White Cheddar Mac & Cheese & The Craving Chronicles - StumbleUpon Mac & cheese. Oh how I love mac & cheese.
