Chocolate brownie cookies Not more than a few days ago I had my Mother's Blessing. The women in my life gathered to share their stories of motherhood and to give me strength (and many freezer meals) when the time comes that I too will experience the journey of birth. We talked and laughed over mugs of hot chocolate and bowls of plump, cerise strawberries. My husband and I also gave a bead and the following blessing to our unborn child; I wish for you to find strength when days seem dark. I wish for you to be warmed by happiness as the Earth is warmed by the sun. And lastly, I wish for you to find love as your father and I did. After a day filled with sweetness, it ended with a glass of milk and the most delicious morsel of a cookie. ease: 4/5. prep time: 25mins. cooking time: 8mins. total: 33mins. taste: 4/5. I first made these beauties almost 3 years ago and yet I never forgot them, and am quite uncertain as to why I waited so long to make them again!

The Last Course: The Desserts of Gramercy Tavern Random House Grilled&Avocados Avocados have been a mainstay of my culinary life for about as long as I can remember. Growing up in Southern California in the 60's, avocados were locally grown, plentiful and part of just about every party and celebration, usually in the form of guacamole. But all that changed and guacamole became the springboard for a host of dishes, sweet and savory, but for me, nothing beats a plain slice of perfectly ripe avocado. The other day as I was listening to one of my food podcasts, Evan Kleiman was interviewing an avocado grower who mentioned that one of his favorite ways to eat avocados is to grill them. THAT night I’m so grilling an avocado. Remove it from your grill and and sprinkle with a little lime juice and salt. Here's a quick and easy salsa recipe. Dump it all in the blender and process until it becomes a harmonious blend of salsa goodness. Taste and add more salt, cayenne or cilantro if needed.

Unfettered F-U-N . . . Rainbow Jelly Shooter! Rainbow Jelly Shooter Its been a whirlwind at the test kitchen. The book is progressing (crossing fingers that it is going to press in early December!), we have been working on a little something (three little somethings, actually) for Saveur.com, and about a million more actions items cropping up here and there, many of which have not received appropriate attention and are currently housed in a bin marked "anxiety provoking". One of the highlights of our week was a lovely chat with Erin over at Tablespoon.com, who mentioned that they were hosting a Double Rainbow Week, which sounded like such fun! So, when the weekend rolled around, rather than trolling cocktail books for jelly shot inspiration, we decided it was high time for a bit of unfettered f-u-n . . . I love the "rainbow" gelatin technique - borrowed from the popular recipe for kids' finger gelatin. Cheers, Michelle Rainbow Jelly Shooter Suggested pan: 9" x 13" cake pan, or molds Yield: about 45 jelly shots Red Layer Yellow Layer

cheesy baked artichoke dip in college i was a waitress and bartender at The Loring Bar & Cafe in Minneapolis. it is where i met alex, so it will always hold a very special place in my heart. it was a really great place to work - cool co-workers, great customers and excellent food. the one thing that we were known for was artichoke dip. i can't tell you how many times i ate that for dinner. it was incredible but since The Loring closed no other artichoke dip has even came close to replacing it. i have tried several recipes for artichoke dip that really sucked. too dry - to heavy - not enough flavor - i have covered them all. but this recipe is the last artichoke dip recipe i will ever need. it is similar to the Loring recipe - dare i say - it might be even better. let me put it this way - this is THE BEST artichoke dip! i apologize for the weird measurements - i doubled the original recipe because it just didn't make enough! alex did a beautiful job of modeling the dip :) Yield: Makes about 2 2/3 cups Preheat broiler.

Baked Parmesan Zucchini Sticks I got kinda hooked on these this summer. I’ve always loved the zucchini sticks my parents served at their pizzeria and used to eat them often when I worked there. But let’s be real, though they are a “vegetable”… the deep fried part kinda trumps the veggie part don’t ya think? I started making these at home this summer…not sure why it’s taken me so long to put this zucchini recipe together. I love zucchini, but get kind of bored of the usual ways I cook it and am always on the lookout for new recipes for zucchini. Baked Parmesan Zucchini Sticks Ingredients 3 large zucchini, sliced longways, halved and cut into sticks 2 eggs 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated 1 tsp dried oregano 1/2 tsp dried garlic powder Olive oil spray Instructions Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Crispy Potato Roast Recipe Hey Guys! So…it’s still really hot out…wtf! I’m totally ready for fall…forget this, “I just don’t want summer to end” BS…I’m OVER IT! Okay, I apologize for being aggressive right there, but man does this weather make me grumpy. There are a few things that get my mood up during weather like this: 1) My Dog (always) 2) Frequent Fro-Yo and Hawaiian Ice trips with the boyfriend 3) This Roasted Onion Dip. Remember when you were a kid and sleepovers were still the best thing ever? If you are willing to brave a hot kitchen for about an hour (woof, I know), this dip is totally worth it and a delicious treat to help keep you cool (once you’re sitting and enjoying it) and leave you feeling guilt-less afterwards! xx Jenny Roasted Onion Dip Serves 5 to 6 Ingredients: 2 large sweet onions, quartered 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced 1 tablespoon light brown sugar 3 garlic cloves, minced 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt 1/2 cup sour cream 1/2 teaspoon cumin

A-Freaking-Mazing Artichoke Dip A while ago, I posted another recipe for artichoke dip, but let me tell you – this one blows that one out of the water. This one is thicker and richer, thanks to the cream cheese, and it also has a zing of flavor from the seasonings I added. This one is also grain-free (the other one used flour as a thickener). Plus, it has yummy spinach swirled throughout it. Score! Spinach artichoke dip has always been one of my favorite appetizers to order in restaurants, but I basically never order it anymore because it’s always served with chips/bread/crackers. Another great thing about this dip is that it can be made very quickly by microwaving the ingredients sort-of-separately, mixing, then broiling in the oven. You will need: 8 oz. Mix all ingredients in a baking dish, and sprinkle on a bit more mozzarella, then broil until the cheese is browned. Now you can get down to the business of eating and enjoying your delicious dip.
