Cruft: Lasagna Cupcakes When Intelligentsia Coffee opened in Pasadena recently, I was intrigued the lasagna cupcakes they served. The cupcakes are made by Heirloom LA, a catering business. About the size of a muffin, a single lasagna cupcake was a delicious meal. After seeing how much my daughter enjoyed them (she ate my entire cupcake and I had to order a second one), I decided I had to try making them at home. After a bit of research, here is my method. The girls love them and take them to school as lunch.

Greek Quesadillas Though we love spending time in our kitchen, most weeknights we’re not up for much of a challenge. We generally save our cooking adventures for the weekend (though sometimes we find some unexpected mid-week inspiration!). Here’s some mid-week inspiration for a dish that’s incredibly easy to put together, but seems inspiring none the less. (And, you can capitalize on local winter greens, if they’re readily available in your area!) Quesadillas are a common go-to meal for us, but we’d never tried them with Mediterranean flavors. Turns out the quesadilla lends itself well to ethnic interpretations (much like our experiments with Mexican and Greek pizza).

Strawberry Ginger Ale Terrine For the first time in many months, strawberries taste good again! During colder weather when fruits have to be shipped in from far away places, they are usually much too sour. I find them inedible. In our region, winter strawberries may be perfectly red and beautiful on the shelf, but they just don't taste ripe. Trickery! I don't like it. Almost-Famous Spicy Fried Shrimp Recipe : Food Network Kitchens Directions Make the sauce: Mix the mayonnaise, chili sauce, honey, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 tablespoon water in a large bowl; set aside. Prepare the shrimp: Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350 degrees. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs in a shallow bowl. Whisk the flour, cornstarch and 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper in another shallow bowl. Working in batches, dredge the shrimp in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess, dip in the beaten eggs, then return to the flour mixture, turning to form a thick crust.

Two Tiny Kitchens Salty and sweet. Crunchy and melt-in-your-mouth. Peanut butter and chocolate. Dangerous and delicious (you know what I mean). One little bite, so much to experience. Why did I wait so long to give these a try?? Greek Garlic-Lemon Potatoes Recipe About a month back, a dear reader Sudha asked me for a Potato recipe which is my all time fav. She said she loved roast potatoes and that which makes it often. She asked me if I had a twist to regular roast potatoes. This recipe "Patates sto Fourno" is a Greek recipe for Garlic and Lemon Potatoes. It is a staple in taverna menus and I read that it is usually served with roasted chicken/grilled fish dishes.

veg manchurian dry recipe, how to make dry vegetable manchurian veg manchurian dry recipe with step by step photos – an indo chinese starter dish of fried veg balls in a spicy, sweet and tangy sauce. veg manchurian is one of the dishes that we order when we have a dinner in a chinese restaurant. its one of my favorite chinese dishes from childhood and a recipe i would make from my teens. this veg manchurian recipe as the title suggests is a dry version. there is no gravy in the recipe. on occasions i make this dry version as a side dish with veg noodles or mushroom noodles. the veg manchurian gravy version i make with steamed rice or veg fried rice. the only time taking part in making vegetable manchurian is the grating/chopping the veggies. so the recipe does take time to prepare with frying the vegetable balls and then preparing the sauce. for less work you can make the veg balls a day before and use them the next day.
