Onion Strings

Onion Strings
Please note: This is one of my all-time favorite recipes. Thank you for listening. But lawsy mercy, ladies and gentlemen. I know they don’t look it, but these teeny tiny, thinly-sliced fried onions are so pleasantly flavorful and crisp, and such an utterly perfect accompaniment for so many different main courses, they really need to be placed on some list of Culinary Triumphs of All Time. Yes Siree. Right next to homemade sweet lime pickles and Tiramisu. No, I’m not pregnant. Making these fried onions is so simple folks, but there are two crucial steps. And besides, I don’t really know the reasons. The Cast of Characters: Onion, Buttermilk, Flour, Salt, Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, and Canola Oil. Begin by peeling a large onion and slicing it very, very thinly. Notice that you can see the knife through the onion slice. Next, separate the onion slices into rings and place them into a shallow dish. Measure 2 cups of buttermilk and pour it over the onions. Next, add 2 cups flour to a bowl. Criminis?

Easy Appetizer Recipe: Baked Ricotta with Lemon, Garlic & Chives Recipes from The Kitchn Last month Megan declared baked ricotta "the best appetizer you haven't met yet." Intrigued (who wouldn't be?), I gave it a try and suddenly baked ricotta is the best appetizer I've only recently met. It's the new thing, the current crush, the little bite that perfectly straddles the divide between old-fashioned, stodgy hot appetizers and fresher, more modern tastes. Ricotta, Mushroom, and Herb Stuffed Chicken Breasts Ricotta, Mushroom, and Herb Stuffed Chicken Breasts I found this recipe on 365 Days of Food that I adapted and made for dinner. This chicken was a huge hit with my husband and my friend who was over for dinner. The chicken was moist and tender while the ricotta/mushroom mixture inside was flavorful and so delicious. I loved this dish and will be making it again and again. This recipe is a little more difficult and time consuming to make but it is worth the extra work.

Kalofagas - Greek Food & Beyond For those that have been fortunate enough to visit Greece and enjoy some of the world’s freshest seafood, you would have been offered calamari either fried or in this case, grilled. I didn’t always eat calamari (squid) but the deep-fried variety is what converted me. However, grilled squid (or calamari) is what cemented my love for this cheap, easy and delicious seafood dish. Squid can be found at practically every fish & seafood store and most of what’s available has been frozen at some point. The 34 Simple Two-Ingredient Recipes Posted by admin on May 22, 2013 in Recipes | 0 comments Cooking doesn’t get much easier than this. BTW, these are mostly desserts. Avocado Egg Salad Before Radd and I had kids, there would be nights that we weren’t able to have dinner together. School, work, and friends sometimes just got in the way of sitting down for a full meal with each other. Now if I happened to be home on one of those nights, there was absolutely no doubt about what my dinner plan would be– egg salad. Wild, right? You see, I was never able to make egg salad for the both of us because– and I still don’t understand this– Radd despises hard-boiled eggs.

Chicken Rollatini with Spinach alla Parmigiana Baked chicken breasts rolled with spinach and ricotta topped with pomodoro sauce and melted mozzarella. A dish the whole family will love! Since making chicken rollatini stuffed with prosciutto and cheese a few weeks back my husband has been craving chicken rollatini the way he grew up eating it, stuffed with cheese and topped with sauce and more cheese. I had to sneak some spinach in them against his will, but he was very pleased with the final results. I guess you can say this is a cross between my Chicken Parmigiana and Spinach Lasagna Rolls. Perfect for a large crowd, or to feed a hungry family.

Grilled Stuffed Squid Recipe with Feta Cheese The flavours infuse in this stuffed squid recipe with a creamy filling of marinated feta cheese. Squid or Calamari as it is called in Greece, is a popular fish dish served in the summer months in Greece. It can be cooked in many different ways.

Whipped Ricotta with lemon and olive oil I guess some weekends are more about practically understanding the meaning of fun… and then keeping your head down and working your way through. Like whoa. That’s ok. Some Wednesdays are more about doughnuts than emails, so I guess it all evens out down the line. Healthy Baked Chicken Nuggets Chunks of all white meat chicken breasts coated in breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese then baked until golden. An easy chicken recipe your whole family will love. What can be more kid friendly than chicken nuggets, even the pickiest kids like them. Serve them with ketchup, bbq sauce or whatever you like to dip your nuggets into.

The possibilities are endless of the varieties you could make (check out the Apple Dessert Braid!), but the recipe below is for a very basic hamburger and pepperoni braid.

Kids: Healthy Lunches & A Happy Budget Making Healthy Choices and Minimizing Food Waste Trying to balance healthy lunches and the grocery budget is much easier than you think if you eliminate the convenience. Having a picky eater in your house can certainly present some challenges when it comes to ensuring healthy lunches at school for your son or daughter. I swear my son has been a picky eater since the minute he was born so when it came time for him to go to school the thought of him not eating his lunch or not having enough to eat while at school had me worried. Time for change Beer-Battered Fried Pickles I’m fairly certain there is nothing more satisfying to eat than a fried pickle. The sad part is that it took me 29 years to discover this. Last year I tasted my first fried pickle in an Irish pub in California and I was forever transformed.
