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.

The Londoner: Slutty Brownies Now I don’t want to over sell this, so I’m going to be conservative and simply say, that these are… The Best Brownies In The WORLD. I know, big statement. They’re called Slutty Brownies because they’re oh so easy, and more than a little bit filthy. They’re best served warm from the oven, with good quality vanilla ice cream (devastatingly I didn’t have any in the freezer this time, so I guess I’ll just have to make them again). They take about 45mins to make, including baking time. The ultimate comfort food, whipped up within the hour. You will need… 1 Box of cookie mix, 1 Box of brownie mix, 2 Eggs, 2 Packs of Oreos (double stuffed ones are even better if you can find them) Some oil & your favourite ice-cream (optional) Preheat your oven to 350F, 180C, gas mark 4. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper. Squidge (technical term) the cookie dough into a lined baking tray, until it covers the bottom. Cover this layer with your Oreos. Mix up your brownie batter. & pour over your Oreos. Bake for 30mins.

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? 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: 20-24 small red potatoes10 garlic cloves⅔ cup olive oil⅔ cup Asiago or Parmesan cheese, grated (I used Asiago but I think Parmesan would be much better)½ cup mayonnaise1 teaspoon dried basilpaprika, for sprinkling

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. I remember ordering the blueberry Italian soda in the summer instead of ice cream because they were so refreshing. Photo Credit: Sugar and Charm Chicago Deep Dish Pizza I have been making pizzas quite a bit on the blog. My old roommate Mark asks me each time I post a pizza, when are you going to write about the Chicago style pizza you used to make back in college. Well Mark, this one is for you.

Orgasmic Mac ‘n’ Cheese Inspired by the Mac-n-Cheese Off, we’re eating an earthy ode to mac-n-cheese. This dish is made with a bechamel based sauce that’s filled with herb goat cheese, sharp cheddar, parmigiano reggiano, sauteed shitake and crimini mushrooms deglazed with sherry vinegar, truffle oil, fresh rosemary, thyme, and sage. Since the actual macaroni and cheese is extremely rich, we went with a crispy top-layer made from panko and parmigiano reggiano rather than the standard ooey gooey cheesey top layer. this is not from a box T: I gotta say, Amanda, this mac and cheese was out of this world. mac and cheese happens to be one of those foods that i find totally decadent and just absolutely love (when it’s made well).T: you know, i grew up eating boxed mac and cheese like 95% of the time. i never had much real mac and cheese. i’m sure if you did any research before you made the macaroni and cheese you wouldn’t just do that. there are tons of recipes out there.T: if I did any research. mac-n-cheese-off
