Broccoli parmesan fritters

Broccoli parmesan fritters
Last week, it was pointed out to me that among the 750 recipes in the archives, there is but a single recipe that utilizes broccoli. Just one! (It’s a great one, though.) For comparison, there are 11 recipes that use cauliflower and 26 with mushrooms. What terrible oversight could have led to this? I buy broccoli (and its friends) approximately once a week, year-round but this wasn’t always the case. Please understand: this is not one of those stories about how preciously advanced my toddler’s tastes are, how early he took an interest in foie gras and how he turns his nose up at white flour pastas, preferring farro. I have a theory that you can tuck almost any finely chopped or shredded vegetable — be it potatoes, zucchini, or an Indian-spiced mix — into a savory pancake, fry it in small mounds until crisp on both sides, serve it with a dollop of a sour cream or yogurt sauce and they will be inhaled. So, you know where this is going. And with that, I had them for lunch instead.

Scottish Farmhouse Eggs Decided to mix things up and do a recipe. This is one I’ve made forever and I’m not 100% positive where I picked it up. It is always a crowd pleaser for brunch or breakfast. Garlicky Baked Fries I’m never going to make garlic potato fries any other way. These garlic fries, win hands down as the best garlic french fries I’ve ever made. Plus they are baked – so I won’t feel too guilty if I make it every time I’m craving for some potato comfort.

Thanks to my sweet brother, Ramon, who recently came for a visit, I’ve finally learned to make this delicious recipe for homemade Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François. If you’ve been intimidated to make homemade bread, your store bought days are over.

Recipe for Julia Child's Eggplant Pizzas (Tranches d'aubergine á l'italienne) I love this recipe for Julia Child's Eggplant Pizzas made on a base of roasted eggplant. The eggplant pizzas are low-carb, Keto, low-glycemic, gluten-free, meatless, and South Beach Diet friendly; use the Recipes-by-Diet-Type Index to find more recipes like this one. If you're interested in food, you must have heard that August 15 would have been Julia Child's 100th birthday. I was honored to be one of the bloggers asked to share thoughts of Julia in a tribute written for PBS Food, and my friend Lydia completely captured why food bloggers want to honor Julia in her post on Six Lessons I Learned About Food Blogging from Julia Child. Julia was known for her appreciation of bread, butter, and wine, so when you're writing a blog focused on carb-conscious cooking, finding a suitable Julia Child recipe that will appeal to your readers can be a challenge. I must confess that even though this was Julia Child, I did make a few minor changes in the recipe.

over-the-top mushroom quiche This one is personal. Four years, five months and 19 days ago, I was bested by this quiche and as noted by the detailed date count, I may not be over it. Worse, it wasn’t even the quiche that bested me, but the crust. Glossary C-G Cakes - Broadly defined, cakes are any flat, round disk of food. The earliest cakes are believed to come from ancient Egypt but they were really sweet breads. Cake recipes that are similar to today and contain beaten eggs date from the 17th Century. Most of us think of cakes as a sweet, baked confection made with or without fat (butter, oil, or shortening) and usually containing a mixture or batter of flour, sugar, eggs, flavorings and sometimes another leavener such as baking powder or baking soda. The mixture is then poured into a pan and baked until the exterior is firm with a crust, and the interior sets with a crumb.....More on Cakes Cashews - Cashews are a smooth, tan-colored, kidney-shaped nut.

Gnocchi Mac &Cheese Ahhhh mac and cheese. Those mere words stir up feelings of comfort...home....the food you loved as a kid. If you asked a 100 people what their favorite comfort food was, I'm guessing close to half would say mac and cheese. I'm sure meatloaf and mashed potatoes are right up there too. Cookies and Cream Peanut Butter...Midnight Snack Need a midnight snack? Or anytime snack for that matter, my cookies and cream peanut butter might just knock your socks off I was so lucky to have my sister and her family visit earlier this week and I got to have some kitchen time with her beautiful girls. They are just the sweetest things ever. Hope you’ll enjoy this naughty snack that’s good enough to eat by the spoonful!

Easy Calabacitas or Squash with Onions, Chiles, and Cheese I've had a lot of comments from people who like the Easy South Beach Recipes I've been posting which have only five ingredients or less. I'm going to sneak this one in, but you'll need to use a bit of salt and pepper to go with the five main ingredients. Calabacitas is a traditional recipe of the American southwest, and this easy version is so good, I had it for lunch two days last week.

Mushroom-Cheddar Quiche: not all pies are sweet. Remember Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche, that 1982 fun-poking paean to masculinity? Well, thankfully, that statement was never true. I mean, think of the King, with his “four and twenty blackbirds, baked in a pie” – surely that savory (to say nothing of copious) filling qualifies the King’s pie as quiche. Pie doesn’t have to be sweet.
