We cook at home pretty much every night thanks to having a dog with separation anxiety. Usually it’s a mix of new recipes, repeats and staples that need no recipe. We typically need some leftovers for lunch and a variety of meat or veggie mains. It feels like we made a lot of new recipes this week but maybe I’ll start a tally have a better sense of the crazy.
I saw this recipe in the December issue of Bon Appetit, which always has a few holiday cookies. I’m not necessarily into holiday cookies but I’m always into salt and butter!
The ingredients list is awesomely simple and the batter is so good I considered eating it by the spoonful. The finished cookies are pretty good too.
I’m not the best meat cooker. I love it but veggies were less scary when I was learning to cook. But by now I’ve followed enough recipes that I feel confident cooking with meat and even found a couple preparations that I think are rock stars. This is one of them!
Not as shortbready as a pure shortbread cookie but there’s lots of butter flavor. Plus peaches and some crumble on top, it’s so good. Remember to share.
These are pretty awesome kebabs, super flavorful, sticky, almost too spicy for me. When we remember to make rice, we serve these with rich coconut rice which helps cut through the spice.
I’m going to try something a little different with the blog. A little less polished, more review / stream of consciousness cooking. Hopefully this will mean less internal pressure and more doing. You’ll see more of what I’m cooking, where the recipes are coming from and whether or not it’s working.
So about these cookies! If you have all the equipment, this is a super easy recipe that generates a lot of dishes. The texture fits a sandie description, almost crumbly and tastes extra buttery.
This is a favorite summer salad. You could make this in winter, but it is really better when everything is in season and super fresh. It’s sweet, savory and has some heft to it.
You could top this with some leftover chicken, steak, tofu, but it stands well on it’s own. The only commitment is a lot of chopping. …
Love this Raspberry Ricotta Cake recipe from Bon Appetit.
It was so refreshingly easy to make plus the Raspberries really did add a nice summery taste.
This is just what I needed last weekend. To resist the temptation of another large baking projects! Enjoy your cake and your weekend too! And maybe a nap as well.
