Queso Blanco

Monday, June 29, 2009

24 Comments

There are certain foods that I crave and am completely unable to resist.    One of those foods is queso blanco.  This creamy cheese dip is finding its way on to the menus of  Tex-Mex restaurants next to the traditional orange chili con queso.  It is made with a variety of white cheeses and spices depending on where […]

Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin Roast

Friday, June 26, 2009

15 Comments

I love pork products, and I love finding new ways to cook with this most versatile ingredient. I am not a big fan of pork roast, however.  Most of the pork roast I have had has been dry, tough, and flavorless.  Even with elaborate stuffing, injections, and coatings I have found most pork roast to be boring.   It is […]

Five Spice Roasted Chicken Thighs with Peanut Rice Noodles

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

I don’t pretend to be an expert on Asian cooking.  Far from it. However, I know what I like, and I know what tastes good, and this chicken and noodle dish certainly does taste good!  The chicken and the noodles could stand alone as separate dishes, but I adore the spiced chicken with the peanut […]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

 It is a wonderful thing to have a good, trusty cookie recipe. It’s good because a trusty recipe can be changed, added to, and amended to create all kinds of different cookies.  I have a lot of recipes that are what I consider ‘base’ recipes.  They are fine on their own, but add a little […]

Cinnamon Roll Bread

Is there anything more comforting than the smell of warm cinnamon rolls?  If there is, I can’t think of it right now.       While I love the traditional cinnamon roll, and believe me I do, I thought it would be fun to take my cinnamon roll dough and make it into a swirled […]

Chocolate Loaf Cake with White Chocolate Glaze

Wednesday, June 17, 2009

I don’t know about you but I love humble desserts, and of those desserts there is just something special about loaf cakes. They are not the prettiest desserts out there.  Often they are served unadorned or simply glazed.  Sitting next to a flaky croissant, a glistening napoleon, or a fluffy mousse they wouldn’t win the beauty prize, […]

Pot Stickers with Pork Filling – Daring Cooks June 2009

Sunday, June 14, 2009

24 Comments

 I decided, because I don’t have enough to do, that I would join The Daring Kitchen.  I know.  I know.   This month’s Daring Cooks Challenge is by Jen from Use Real Butter who challenged us all to make homemade pot sticker wrappers.    Overall, it was not terribly difficult, but it did take a little time […]

Grilled Mushroom and Ricotta Pizza on Sourdough Wheat Crust

Friday, June 12, 2009

15 Comments

I have been on something of a pizza kick lately, and not those commercially prepared pies with flavorless cheese and mushy veggies. I can directly pin-point when this all started.  It began at the Mushroom Council lunch when Chef Kent Rathburn made us a grilled mushroom pizza.  I knew in that moment that I would […]

Baked Fish Tacos with Chipotle Dressing

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

I love warm weather food!  There is nothing like it, and when the temperature breaks the 95F mark I pull out my favorite Summer recipes. One such recipe is fish tacos.   Cool and crisp lettuce, creamy avocado, and crunchy fish wrapped in a corn tortilla is perfect for a light afternoon lunch, or a dinner […]

Banana Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Monday, June 8, 2009

Do you have some ripe bananas that aren’t good for anything other than baking?  Are you tired of the same old banana bread?  Then keep reading! I had some extra bananas that I had forgotten to eat with my breakfast cereal.  They were pretty black and really soft, and I knew that they were only good for […]
