How to make handmade udon noodles—it’s easier than you might think! I am in love with this udon noodle bowl I got from the company Flavour Design Studio. Isn’t it gorgeous? I love the way it’s designed to be easy to hold, with a hole for your thumb to fit through, and I love the grooves and holes cut out for your chopsticks to sit in so they don’t roll away from you! I decided that I needed to make some homemade udon noodles to properly break in the bowl. It would have been a shame to eat store bought noodles out of such a gorgeous handmade vessel! My favorite bowl of udon was nabeyaki udon—udon noodles in a flavorful broth made from dashi and chicken stock, and filled with lots of vegetables, poached chicken, tempura shrimp, and a poached egg. For my handmade noodles, I decided to make Kake Udon—udon served in a broth, made from dashi, soy sauce, and mirin, and topped with sliced scallions. Take it from me, homemade udon makes for a very happy family! Making udon noodles is a simple process. Then you begin to knead the dough by hand. and folding it. 1.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese A creamy macaroni and cheese recipe that will satisfy both young and old made with Kerrygold cheese and butter from grass-fed cows. This mac and cheese reheats beautifully the next day with just a bit of milk or cream stirred in. Ole pointed out a few weeks ago that our children were growing up with a different food experience than either one of us had. Things like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, mac and cheese lunches and daily desserts are not the norm over here. The secret to this mac and cheese is in the farmhouse cheese that goes into the sauce. While the pasta cooks, get ready for the sauce by shredding the cheese. Once the noodles are ready and drained, melt two tablespoons of butter over medium-high heat and then whisk in flour and cook for a minute. Stir in the Dijon, black pepper and a pinch of salt and stir in the sautéed shallots. Kerrygold did not compensate me for this post. Copyright © Food for My Family.

Balsamic BBQ Glazed Chicken A homemade balsamic bbq sauce is used to glaze chicken as it’s grilling. The result is tender chicken with a slightly sweet, and tangy taste. Summer is one of my favorite seasons for one simple reason: grilling. We finally invested in a Big Green Egg last year and it completely changed the way I think about grilling. This recipe is all about the balsamic bbq sauce that you use to baste the chicken while it’s grilling. While I used a grill pan with great success, I know this recipe would turn out even better using a grill. Is anyone else just itching for Spring to arrive? Prep Time: 5mn Cook Time: 35mn Total Time: 40mn 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts1 cup balsamic vinegar3/4 cup ketchup1/3 cup brown sugar1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce1 tablespoon Dijon mustard1/2 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon black pepper1/2 teaspoon garlic powder In a sauce pan, combine balsamic vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, salt, black peper, and garlic powder.

Vampire Cookies Every year I see lots of Halloween cupcakes and cakes that are rather boring in their decorations. They may have faces of ghosts or vampires painted on top with colored icing, but that really doesn’t do much to set them apart from non-holiday cupcakes. Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I think it’s fun to go over-the-top where ever possible and really take decorations as far as they can go. I did this last Halloween by creating Vampire Cupcakes – cupcakes filled with a blood-red cherry pie filling that “bled” when you bit into them. This year, I wanted to start a little collection of vampire Halloween goodies and opted to try my hand at making vampire cookies. Like the cupcakes, I wanted the cookies to be a pale white color and filled with something bright red. I made the bite marks by poking two holes in the dough with a toothpick before baking. The cookies have a light vanilla and butter flavor to them, and are the perfect color to really set off the red of the filling.

Share Lemon-Basil Ricotta Stuffed Shells in a Champagne Cream Sauce: Can you EVEN believe I almost forgot to share with you this delicious baked pasta recipe? It was back in November when I made this pasta… and I remember the day perfectly… It was real sunny. POW {that’s the sound it makes in my brain when a recipe happens}! Please don’t think I ran out and bought champagne. Butter a baking dish and set aside. On the large holes of your box grater; shred a cup of Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese. Season the ricotta with a little extra salt and pepper if you haven’t already. Combine half of the pecorino with the ricotta and set aside. Measure out 3/4 cup of champagne. Cook the pasta just short of al dente in salted water. Drain and spread them out onto a rimmed sheet pan or some parchment paper. Stuff each shell with some of the cheese and place them in your prepared dish. In a small sauce pan, melt three tablespoons of butter and add some finely minced garlic. Whisk until the garlic softens and is fragrant but not brown. Then pour in the champagne… Ingredients:

Bang Bang Shrimp Time for another delicious football snack! This one would be good for a nice dinner too though! So this is supposed to be like the Bonefish dish with the same name but I’ve never had the dish so I can’t really say how close it is to the real thing. I can, however, say that it is amazing. Not going to lie, it was quite a bit of work because you have to deep fry the shrimp but seriously worth all the time spent staring into the pot of oil. Ingredients 1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined For the sauce: ½ cup mayonnaise 4-5 teaspoons chili garlic sauce, such as Sriracha sauce 1 teaspoon granulated sugar 1 teaspoon rice vinegar For the egg mixture: 1 egg, beaten 1 cup milk For the breading mixture: ½ cup all-purpose flour ½ cup panko breadcrumbs 1 teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon ground black pepper ¼ teaspoon onion powder ¼ teaspoon garlic powder ¼ teaspoon dried basil For frying: 8 to 12 cups vegetable oil Instructions Combine all ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl; cover and set aside.
