The other day, I made some meat sauce with a view that I’d make some lasagna. I dragged my feet on making the lasagna, however, because I really don’t like the taste/texture of ricotta cheese. But, what if I could make my own?
Last night for dinner, we had roast beef. It has actually been quite a while since I’ve cooked a roast. Not surprisingly, we had leftovers! I’m not a fan of leftover roast beef at all, so was in a bit of a quandary in terms of what to do with it.
It’s been a long time since I’ve made Cottage Pie (not Shepherd’s Pie). I thought it would be good for dinner tonight.
When Susan and I were in Paris, we ate a lot of Croque Monsieurs. At one little café, the Croque Monsieurs were paired with the most incredible fries. Unfortunately, we’ve been unsuccessful in finding the fries here, or figuring out how to cut them.
For dinner tonight, I decided to try Julia Child’s Suprêmes de Volaille aux Champignons (Chicken Breasts with Mushrooms and Cream) from Pages 268-270 of Volume 1, Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
Some time back, Chris told a story of a friend who worked in the kitchen lab of a major food producer. This friend had worked on developing the most economical Cornish Pasties for commercial production.
We’ve had nothing but rain for almost a month – that is until yesterday. Even though it’s hot and humid outside, I’ve decided to take advantage of the dryer weather and grill some chicken for dinner (actually, the master taste-tester will do the grilling!).
It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on Pudge Factor – we’ve been out of town! Before we left, I had some ground turkey that needed to be used up, and wanted to try something different.
For Mother’s Day, Susan gave me, among other things, an 8-inch square baking pan. To christen it, I decided to make brownies. It’s been years since I’ve made from-scratch brownies.
This is the ultimate recipe for french bread. It’s a breeze to make with a bread machine, and consistently produces amazing french bread. I’ve been told by both Susan and the Master Taste Tester not to try any other french bread recipe!
