Another Monday morning links list … and an image from the archives, since I’m still without cameras and am likely to be for the foreseeable future. The image below is from one of my very first Tuesdays With Dorie postings. I still love the way the individual chocolate tart shells turned out.
And here are the things that caught my eye from last week:
Jamie’s Chicken w/ Lemon & Milk: I took a whole chicken out of the freezer this morning so I can make this tomorrow. It sounds heavenly and I know I have all the ingredients on hand. I might be able to snap some images with my camera phone – so I’ll fill you all in later this week.
Cherries in wine: This just sounds heavenly. I can see using these as a dessert, or adding them to something like venison or buffalo after roasting. I have a half a bag of cherries in the fruit bin that I need to do something with anyway.
Food Timeline: This is fascinating. I don’t know entirely how accurate it is, but it sucked up at least 2 hours of my attention the other night. It definitely appeals to the historian in me.
Cold Noodles and Peanut Sauce: Is there anything more to say? This sounds like a perfect summer dish – I need to hurry up and make it before summer is over!
Tomato, White Bean & Bacon Soup: And sliding from the end of summer right into fall – there’s this soup. Doesn’t that sound heavenly? I love soup in the fall and winter anyway. It’ll be nice to have another to add to my menu.
Sweet & Sour Meatball Skewers: I’m not so much on the sweet and sour part (although H is) but the idea of meatballs on skewers definitely intrigues me. With as much as I grill over the summer, you’d think this one would have occurred to me before! I’m definitely trying this with my turkey meatball recipe soon!
Salmon Burgers: I have been looking for a salmon burger recipe forever. Really. Forever. I keep trying ones that just don’t work for me for various reasons. The capers intrigue me and besides, this looks like it would be super easy to make.
5 Reasons Frozen Shrimp is Better: This article really resonated with me. I buy frozen shrimp from Costco at least once a week (yes, I eat that much shrimp). When you don’t live near the coast, frozen shrimp is actually fresher than the “fresh” shrimp that you can buy at the fish counter.
Slow Roasted Tomatoes: I can’t count the number of times I’ve tried to roast my own tomatoes and failed. Either I cut them too thin and wind up with something blackened and stuck to the cookie sheet, or I forget about them, or … something. I’m determined to follow this recipe to a T and make my own slow roasted tomatoes.
Katherine Hepburn Brownies: I’d make these just because I’m a huge Katherine Hepburn fan anyway, but even without that draw, these brownies sound exactly like the kind I love – rich and fudgy (rather than cakey). They’ll have to wait a few weeks, however, since my household is currently on a no-sweets regime. Gotta knock off a few pounds this month.
Salsa Verde: It wouldn’t be a Monday links list here without at least one salsa/spicy food recipe, right? This is another one that I think I might have to try for canning and gifting this year. I just need to find a sufficient quantity of tomatillos.
Non Food Related:
Subway Tiles in the Kitchen: I love the look of subway tiles and I keep thinking that one day I’ll redo my kitchen (or my bathroom) in them. But this picture – I’ve never seen them used vertically before. Now I’m even more determined to find a use for them somewhere in my house.
Oh and a final PS – be sure and check out my new amazon.com store, linked in the header or on the right side of the page. I’m still adding my favorites and will probably be updating for a few days yet!
