Blini with Dill crème fraiche

Blini with Dill crème fraiche
19th July 2012By EmmaPhotography by Emma My first encounter with these bite-sized pillow-y morsels dates back prior to the turn of this brand new century. To an afternoon in early autumn in a suburb on the outskirts of Paris named Fontenay Sous Bois. It was a Friday or Saturday, the afternoon light long and low as it stretched across an autumn sky streaked red and gold. We warm the blini and pile them high with toppings; salmon, caviar, soft French cheese. I will never cease to be surprised by the power of food to stir memories and to create them anew.

Crash Hot Potatoes Man, do I love Australia. First, my oldest daughter was conceived there on our honeymoon…and while we’re on the subject, have I ever shared with you that we almost named her “Sydney” as a nod to her point of origin? In the end, I chickened out, though—I thought that might be a little corny, and truth be told, I think she was actually conceived in Brisbane. But I’ll stop there. This is a family-friendly website. Anyway, I just love Australia. They’re so simple, it’s terrifying. For now, though, let’s take a chill pill and make Crash Hot Potatoes! The Cast of Characters: New Potatoes (or other small, round potato), Olive Oil, Kosher Salt, Black Pepper, and whatever herb you like. Begin by bringing a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make, and cook them until they’re fork-tender. Oh! Next, generously drizzle olive oil on a sheet pan. This will mean the difference between the potatoes sticking and not sticking, so don’t be shy here. Or something. That’s it!

Idea by Janice Kamide Images Source BuzzFeed Cheesy Garlic Potatoes | The Crepes of Wrath The weather has been beautiful for the past two days here in New York! We went to the park yesterday and did some shopping, and all I had to wear was a sweater. Who would have thought? Not that I’m quite ready for it to get really warm yet, but I’ll stick with the high 50s for now. This is a recipe that I tweaked a bit from Gourmet magazine. Your ingredients. Boil your potatoes until tender, about 15 minutes. Place the garlic in a small pot and add the olive oil. Remove the garlic from the oil and mash with a fork until as smooth as possible. Grate your cheese in a medium bowl. Combine the cheese with the garlic, mayonnaise, and basil. Hollow out the potato with a teaspoon, just enough to fill with the cheese mixture. Fill the potatoes with 2-3 teaspoons of the filling and sprinkle with paprika. Cheesy Garlic Potatoes Cook time: Total time: Place the potatoes in a large pot and cover them with water.

Ridiculously Easy & bakerella.com I mean it. Easy. E…..Z…. Peach Crunch Cake. You need some sliced peaches in syrup. Just dump them in a 13 X 9 dish. Note: this can also be called a dump cake.

Keep sprinkling until it’s all covered up. Then layer 1 stick of butter right on the top. For some reason this photo makes me smile. And this really makes me smile. Oh this is looking good.
