Tonight for dinner, I’m trying my hand at sous vide steak. The master taste tester requested coleslaw and baked potato to go along with the steak. I’ve been making this coleslaw for as long as I can remember, so I don’t know where I found the original recipe that I’ve adapted here.
For the past several months, Susan and I have been experimenting with making pizza. We thought that we had discovered the perfect pizza crust until we tried America’s Test Kitchen Thin Crust Pizza.
Several weeks ago, we had a Mexican dinner consisting of chicken enchiladas, Mexican rice and refried beans. All of the recipes were first-timers from the Allrecipes site, with some adaptations, of course! Everything was absolutely incredible. What stuck in my mind the most were the refried beans, which I decided to make again.
Dinner tonight was chicken schnitzel with mustard cream sauce. A perfect accompaniment is mushroom risotto. My job was taking care of the mise en place, or getting everything ready. Susan took over from there and actually made the risotto.
For some time, I’ve been wanting to try Dorie Greenspan’s Sablés recipe from Baking: From my home to yours. One of the reasons for my procrastination was that the recipe called for egg yolks.
Lately, the weather has been pretty yucky – warmish, humid and rain mixed with fog. This afternoon, however, the weather broke and all of a sudden we had 70° F weather with blue sky and a light breeze.
King Arthur’s 2015 recipe of the year is Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies. I’ve been looking at this recipe for about a month, and finally decided to give it a try. It did not disappoint! As I often do, I read the reviews before making the cookies.
Flourless Chocolate Cake is amazingly dense, rich and decadent, with every bite packed with intense bittersweet chocolate flavor. Well, it’s the weekend, and time for me to spend most of my day in the kitchen making stuff. Originally, I had planned on making a Doberge Cake using Gambino’s recipe.
One of my absolute favorite things to make is bread and rolls. The fact that one can add a little bit of salt and yeast to what I used as paste when I as a kid is totally captivating. I don’t think that there is a time when I don’t marvel at the magical powers…
One of Susan’s favorite websites is Pinterest. I have to confess that I spend a lot of time there as well! Given her passion for cooking, Susan spends a lot of time looking at different things to try. One such thing is tonight’s dinner – Chicken Mozzarella Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes.
