But this isn’t a recipe for pesto - I make mine different every time – no, this is a recipe that takes pesto and makes it something more, something special. How do you make pesto, already chock full of robust herbiness and garlic, better? Two words: goat cheese. Think of this humble sandwich as a stage.

Whats on the menu? With approximately 45,000 menus dating from the 1840s to the present, The New York Public Library’s restaurant menu collection is one of the largest in the world, used by historians, chefs, novelists and everyday food enthusiasts. Trouble is, the menus are very difficult to search for the greatest treasures they contain: specific information about dishes, prices, the organization of meals, and all the stories these things tell us about the history of food and culture. To solve this, we’re working to improve the collection by transcribing the menus, dish by dish.

Free Delicious Italian Recipes The local market ran Cornish hens on sale so I took advantage of the opportunity and decided on preparing this Baked Cornish Hen with Cumberland Sauce Recipe for supper. Up until this time I was not real familiar on exactly what Cumberland Sauce consisted of so I guess I kind of prepared this recipe out of curiosity; it kind of reminds me of a sweet and sour sauce, except the ingredients are a little different. Because this is a sauce I don’t normally run into I went to “Wikipedia” to get a little bit of a history on it. “Cumberland sauce is a fruit-based sauce, usually used on non-white meats such as venison, ham, and lamb. Created sometime in the late 19th century, the sauce was named for the Duke of Cumberland, who had ties to Hanover, Germany, where the sauce was invented.

Yes you use an entire package of Oreo Cookies, but what you get in return is a marshmallow-y Oreo treat that is worth every bite Rinderrouladen - A Beef Rolls Recipe - German Culture The origin of the word "roulade" might be French but Rinderrouladen served in a red wine sauce, slices of beef rolled up with a special filling which in English are often called Rolled Beef or Beef Rollups, are a classic and favorite German meal that used to appear only on Sundays, or for special occasions.

Chicago Style Italian Beef Sandwich We wanted to make many different things for this party but a lot of the ideas fell through. One of the ideas was cheesesteaks but we didn't want Mandi to be on the grill all night. We were watching Man v. Food on the travel channel (have you seen it? Think Diners Drive-ins and Dives minus awful catchphrases, frosted tips, and backwards sunglasses, and plus a fun eating challenge) and they were in Chicago (another plus to MvF, one city at a time.) On that episode Mandi and I saw a sandwich we had never seen before.

po' man meals - cheesy roasted broccoli patties the love for broccoli in my house is...divided. me and my girls will steam some broccoli, throw a little butter/salt on it them and eat a big o' HUGE bowl of it, content as can be. my boys? not so much. when the broccoli comes out of the fridge, they take off running in the other direction. at best, i can cut it up into little itsy bitsy pieces and stir it into some rice and my eldest son with eat it. but i had a plan. you can't mess with momma. i made these delicious patties with cheese and panko breadcrumbs for some crunch. then i roasted the mess out of them until they were browned and crunchy, yet cheesy in the middle. roasting the broccoli made it taste nutty and extra good. the result? no division now exists in the smith household! united we stand!
