Our 14 Favorite Go-To Websites For Making Home Cooked Meals Last week, I wrote about my top 10 favorite cookbooks that have taught me to love home cooking. After posting that article we had a commenter ask us to reveal what our favorite online cooking website were, which could serve as cheap alternatives to the more expensive hard (and soft) cover cookbooks. Personally, I’ve spent a ton of time over the last couple of years perusing food blogs — some VERY fancy ones meant for far more experienced chefs than I, and some simpler ones (which are more my speed). I go weak in the knees for beautiful food photography, and I’m always intrigued to see how food bloggers use text, lighting, and unique props to make their recipes sing. Unfortunately, I do not live inside the picture-perfect world of a food blogger, and a lot of the food that Chelsea and I create doesn’t look as appetizing as the food produced by professional food bloggers — and that’s OK!
Baked Caramel Apple Donuts & shutterbean When you find yourself shopping online at 2AM, mini donut pans sound like a brilliant idea. That’s not something your sharp witted, practical 12PM mind allows you to consider–especially when your husband begged you not to add anymore items to the kitchen. When you wake up the next morning with a confirmation that your donut pans have shipped, you might find yourself wondering what else you’ve ordered online…Japanese steak knives? The Nifty Foodie I can’t believe that I’m typing out this recap right now. For weeks, I was anticipating attending this conference, and while I had a feeling it would be over in the blink of an eye, I still can’t believe it’s really over. Inspiring sessions, meeting amazing fellow bloggers and of course, seeing Mickey…it’s hard to put into words how wonderful this conference was, but oh man, if you ever have the opportunity to attend this conference, do it. One of the biggest things that happened for me is that I walked away from this conference so inspired to make a huge change to this blog, and hopefully in the coming weeks, you will see those changes actually happen. I was waivering on making these changes for a while, but one session in particular let me know that this change is a good thing. I just hope you guys will be as excited about this as I am.
Dulce de leche, so easy to make I was at my mom’s house this past weekend watching college basketball and helping her cook. She was going to make dulce de leche to use in several things she was making. Dulce de leche is incredibly easy to make. All you do is heat a can of sweetened condensed milk in water for several hours until the condensed milk transforms into this amazing caramel treat inside. My mom usually does this in a pan of boiling water for a few hours, but I told her I had seen it done in a crock pot. We were both intrigued by the idea we saw on A Year of Slow Cooking, so thought that we would give it a try? 28 Muffin Recipes You’ll Want to Try I love muffins. I love them even more than cupcakes. Probably because they are so quick to make. It’s almost instant gratification from the time the muffin idea pops in your head until you’re pulling them from the oven.
Piccadilly Carrot Souffle Recipe This is an amazingly easy recipe to follow and very delicious. None of my family was able to guess that it was carrots. I made this for our Christmas Dinner last year and everyone loved it, including the children. “Homemade” Dulce de Leche NOTE: Please read all instructions below. It’s very important to keep the water level above the cans at all times, as well as keep the heat on very low. (See alternate methods at the bottom of this post!) Dulce de Leche is a heavenly substance. At first glance, it looks a little like caramel, but it’s actually sweetened milk that’s been heated long enough to cause a caramelizing to occur. The Baker's Daughter: Polka dot cheesecake I saw someone wearing the greatest polka dot rain coat today and it inspired me to make this cheesecake. It needs to be refrigerated overnight so make sure you make it the day before you want to serve it. I find that popping it into the freezer for about 1/2 hour makes it a lot easier to cut. Using a knife dipped in hot water between cuts also helps to make clean edges.
