A Different Way to Serve Fresh Watermelon. Watermelon ‘Cake’
I saw this watermelon cake idea in the August issue of Martha Stewart Living magazine. This is a cute, fun, unique way to serve fresh watermelon. And I’m not the only one who excitedly tried this; checkout ‘messy thrilling life’ blog who also tried Martha Stewart Living Magazine watermelon cake. Thankyou Martha! Martha Stewart Living Magazine serves the watermelon cake plain, thats what I’ve done too. - sprinkle a little lime juice or lime zest on top - top with chopped basil or mint - sprinkle some feta cheeseand balsamic vinegar over the watermelon “cake” - drizzle a little tequila or rum or cachaca Wash and wipe a seedless watermelon. Lay it down horizontally. Cut about one thirds from the other end. Lay the middle third (the watermelon ”cake”) on a serving platter. Now take the two ends of the water melon. Now arrange these balls on top of the water melon ‘”cake”. This will serve about 8, with left over bits of watermelon from the cut ends. Comments comments Tagged as: watermelon

Homemade Goldfish Crackers There are amazing recipes all over the internets—impressive cakes and cookies, pies galore, delicious pasta dishes, fantastic dinner ideas, and so much more. But what has had me a little stumped were homemade crackers. Homemade crackers? Who in the world has time to make homemade crackers? Let me tell ya, they were pretty darn easy. Wanna see how? Before getting started, decide on what shapes you’ll be cutting out. I had so much fun I couldn’t stop, and made a Pac-Man and a football. You’ll need just a few simple ingredients: shredded cheese, butter, flour, salt and cold water. Begin combining everything, except the water, in a food processor until the dough looks like sand. Next, pulse in the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until combined. Remove the dough from the processor and form into a small, tidy package. Once chilled, roll out the dough. Now, the cutting fun begins! Place crackers on a lined cookie sheet and bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes. Aren’t they cute? Look! Description

Guaranteed Crispy Sweet Potato Fries & Sriracha Mayo Dip Right here, right now I am going to teach you how to make crispy sweet potato fries. But first … Let’s get one thing straight. A sweet potato french fry is not a real french fry. I like them, I’ll eat them … but they’re not a real french fry. They are french fry substitutes to be eaten when a real french fry can’t be found. Yes, I know. I have been eating, making and lusting after french fries for as long as I can remember. Best way to eat a french fry? But … if you’re on some sort of stupid meal plan, or you’re all out of regular potatoes, or you just feel like having something a little different, why wouldn’t you cook up some Sweet Potato French Fries? Because they’re soggy messes. I’ve oven baked them, par boiled them and deep fried them and they don’t get crispy. Finally, I’ve figured out how to make crispy sweet potato fries and the best part is you can do them in the deep fryer or the oven! But like with most things, you’re more guaranteed if you do them in the deep fryer. See?

Panko Mozzarella Sticks! | Tasty Kitchen Blog - StumbleUpon I first discovered panko bread crumbs back in 1999. Please don’t ask me how I know that; I just do. I remember vividly reading a recipe that contained panko bread crumbs, and I remember vividly that I was nursing my second baby, and I remember vividly that I was hormonal and desperate, and the next thing I knew I was ordering panko bread crumbs from some market in Chelsea that the magazine recommended. On the phone, of course, because although I had a computer at the time, I certainly wouldn’t have been cool enough to use it to order panko bread crumbs. Panko bread crumbs, in a word, are delicious. Panko are Japanese breadcrumbs, and are lighter and flakier than regular breadcrumbs. When I set out to make a recipe with panko bread crumbs, I started in the direction of something Asian/exotic. So guess what I did? Let me back up: my family LOVES fried mozzarella sticks. Here we go: Panko Mozzarella Sticks! Grab the panko breadcrumbs. You’ll need a bowl of flour… A couple of eggs… Oh! Yum!

Meatless Monday Meatless Sliders It’s Meatless Monday and we’re havin’ a slider party! And yes, folks that’s a meatless slider. Inside that lovely little homemade dinner roll is a scrumptious little veggie burger topped with smoked Gouda and drizzled with a very tasty tamari soy reduction. More about that reduction later, but the little veggie burger inside our slider was one of the best I’ve had. Our tasty little mini burger is comprised of a combination of breadcrumbs, eggs, grated carrots, chopped mushrooms, toasted hazelnuts, grated onion and a little milk. Of course, you can top these sliders with anything you want, but that tamari sauce may have just stolen the show. Although these sliders would be perfect for your next Meatless Monday Night Football party, I think they’re good enough for any party.
