Oh man. This recipe....so good. That's all I can say. It came from Eating Well in Season: The Farmers' Market Cookbook by Jessie Price and the Editors of Eating Well. It was published in 2009. This meal took a long time to cook, but it was super quick to prepare! It was full of flavor and I will probably make this many more times. It was under the winter recipes part of the book, but that didn't stop me!
I love fresh ingredients! We usually go to the Farmer's Market, but this year I wanted to attempt to grow my own! I went to Home Depot and bought all of the things I needed to do so! Including items to build a shelving unit to hold them! I had no idea what I was doing, but when I got there the employees were so helpful! I told them the basic idea I had for the shelf and they helped me design it. We gathered all of the appropriate materials including wood, a drill, screws and planting items and headed home!
This recipe was found in the May 2011 Cooking Light Magazine on page 89. The recipe is fairly simple but I did not care for it all that much. I don't think it had enough flavor. There seemed to be something missing. Although I did not like the meal, I wanted to share the recipe. I think that everything I try (and document) should be shared regardless of if it was a success or not.
This isn't a food related post, but it does have to do with the kitchen! I feel like I never have enough magnets on the fridge in the kitchen. We had a few bumper stickers lying around the house that I had wanted to make into magnets. They could be used in the kitchen or put on the back of your car!
This recipe was posted on Reddit by BeerIsDelicious. I messaged him and asked if I could use the recipe on my blog. He said yes (obviously!) and so here it is! I dedicate this post to him. Thanks for the recipe. :)
This recipe for Lamingtons, an Australian treat, comes from the book "A Baker's Odyssey" by Greg Patent published in 2007. This recipe was absolutely delicious and fairly easy to make! It became a tad messy, but it was so worth it! You do have to let it sit overnight, which is the only sad part about this delicious dessert.
This recipe is from Food & Wine online. A direct link can be found at the bottom of this post. I have never made an Indian recipe before, but I found it quite easy and full of flavor! I encourage everyone to try it. I prepared this recipe for a fellow Redditor and thank them for the suggestion!
The recipe for homemade pasta comes from the Le Cordon Bleu Complete Cooking Techniques book. Ian got me this book for Christmas and I love it!! A warning- this is my first attempt at making pasta. It may not be pretty, but I promise to have nicer looking stuff in the future! The recipe for the lasagna is also included.
This recipe comes from Anthony Bourdain's Les Halles Cookbook- Strategies, Recipes and Techniques of Classic Bistro Cooking. I am a big fan of Anthony Bourdain, so when I received this book for Christmas I was like a little kid with a brand new toy!
