A Vegetarian take on Moussaka Occasionally I take catering jobs for my friends family's special occasions. Normally I don't take pictures of these events, but this most recent one, I snuck the camera in because some of the dishes I was making were really unique. I was asked to cook a Greek feast for 20 people, from apps to dessert! In the past, other people have brought some dishes, but this time I had to do everything. Cooking the middle bulgur layer. Eggplant is the bottom layer. Some feta on top of the bulgur. Creamy mash potatoes on top. I also made some piroski which is like a greek mini calzone that has a sweeter almost pretzel like dough. I rolled out the dough and used my favorite cookie cutter to make the rounds. Sealed with a fork. One perk of my current job is a membership to Restaurant Depot. My friend Nick was able to help me a bit at the party. The dough on these was nice and light, and barely sweet. Perfect 2 bite snacks. The broccoli variety. The fully cooked moussaka. Eggplant on the bottom.

Food Sunday - Marbled Vegetable Bread Happy Sunday Bread Heads! This week we are going do a recipe that is a little more advanced than some of the others.

This bread is made by making three completely separate dough’s, then rolling them together. It is not hard but if you don’t have your bowls ready and don’t stay focused it can be pretty frustrating.

This bread is a combination of white bread, spinach bread and tomato bread. Let’s get baking!

Gluten Free Garlic Cauliflower Pizza Crust Posted by Sia Cooper Yum is not the first word that comes to mind when I think of cauliflower.

Thanks for visiting! A little leftovers magic today – I made a bunch of quinoa earlier in the week, and while it is tasty stuff all on its own, I was craving a change.

10 American Foods that are Banned in Other Countries Americans are slowly waking up to the sad fact that much of the food sold in the US is far inferior to the same foods sold in other nations. In fact, many of the foods you eat are BANNED in other countries. Here, I’ll review 10 American foods that are banned elsewhere. Seeing how the overall health of Americans is so much lower than other industrialized countries, you can’t help but wonder whether toxic foods such as these might play a role in our skyrocketing disease rates. #1: Milk and Dairy Products Laced with rBGH Recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH) is the largest selling dairy animal drug in America. It’s injected into cows to increase milk production, but it is banned in at least 30 other nations because of its dangers to human health, which include an increased risk for colorectal, prostate, and breast cancer by promoting conversion of normal tissue cells into cancerous ones. Where it’s banned: Australia, New Zealand, Israel, EU and Canada #2: Genetically Engineered Papaya

Stove-top Macaroni and Cheese | Evil Shenanigans - Baking & Cooking Blog Forget the boxes, the mixes, and don’t even think of waiting an hour for macaroni and cheese on a week night. I have the super-fast solution for homemade macaroni and cheese, and it is SO good. I have something of an addiction to macaroni and cheese. When I was a child I ate mac & cheese from the blue box at least once a week. My mom just did not always feel up to making homemade side dishes every night, and I never complained! The recipe I am about to share with you makes the creamiest macaroni and cheese I have ever made, and it is nearly as fast as making the stuff in the box. One thing I feel I must add is that you really should grate your cheese fresh. Also, if you are watching your figure, as so many of us are, you can use reduced-fat cheese (this you must grate yourself, reduced-fat ready-grated cheese will not work).

Thai Recipe: Son In Law Eggs | Dianasaur Dishes This Thai recipe for Son In Law Eggs is one of my favorite ways to use boiled eggs. It’s a pretty unique boiled egg recipe that most Americans don’t know about. The first time I made them for my husband he literally yelled “WOW!” at how good they are. Although this isn’t a completely authentic Thai recipe, it’s really close and easy enough for any home cook to make. I first had Son In Law eggs in the 7th grade. There are a couple different stories on the history of Son In Law Eggs, but the most common is that if a man wasn’t being a good husband, his mother in law would come over and make this dish of deep fried boiled eggs. What makes this dish really amazing is the tamarind sauce spooned over the top of them. You can buy this soup base at most grocery stores, and I often toss one in my cart to use a seasoning in different sauces, soups, or curries. So when you’ve got some boiled eggs on hand (here’s my post on easy hard boiled eggs) give this recipe a try. Ingredients Instructions
