Blini with Dill crème fraiche & Cooking Blog
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. I’m standing in the kitchen, its window faced out over the narrow street. The kitchen tiles are cool under my bare feet and the laughter of the children playing in the backyard drifts in through the open French doors. 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. Makes approx 50 blini Blini 1.

Favorite Recipes from 2011 Can you believe 2011 is almost over? Where did the year go? 2011 was a pretty great year, especially for this little blog of mine. Over the last 12 months, we have picked up lots of new friends along the way. 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. Easy Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers! With Avocado Crave a veggie burger. One with Panko-crusted edges - infused with tender sweet potato and creamy, rustic white beans. Tall stacked on a toasted grain bun - crisp romaine leaves sprawling out the sides.

Creamy Caprese Pasta Sigh. It’s Monday. I know. You probably don’t have a smile on your face. Maybe you woke up 35 minutes late and couldn’t wash your hair. Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pulls A few weeks ago I shared my recipe for Cinnamon Roll Pulls, a sweet pull apart bread. In the post I mentioned a savory cheesy version. I had several requests for the cheesy bread recipe. Well, you asked for it, you got it! I went with a cheddar bacon ranch bread. I knew these flavors would work well together since they are in my favorite dip, Crack Dip. Cheesy Garlic Potatoes 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.

Baked Wonton Tacos When I was a little kid, around every New Year’s, my mom and grandma would sit down and make Mandu {Korean version of potstickers or wontons} all day to make Teokguk {Korean version of wonton soup} and I’d just sit with them trying to help out. I remember trying to help out making my own Mandu, though not really successfully. Then my mom and grandma made their own mandu skins from scratch… And now… how grateful I am that I can get premade mandu skins so easily… although I think I should try and make my own skins sometime… It’s definitely on my to-do list. But until then, these premade wonton skins would do. I’ve been looking for ways to use these little yummies in different kinds of cooking.

italian sodas June 30, 2011 | Sweet Recipes | Comments Growing up, these Italian sodas were my favorite!! My mom and I would always stop by a little coffee shack on our road trips to Oregon.
