Lasagna!

May 30, 2016

We made lasagna! After wanting it for years, I found sheep's milk cheeses and finally made some delicious lasagna! We used sheep ricotta, pecorino perfetto and pecorino toscana in place of the cow's milk cheeses in the recipe and it turned out TO DIE FOR!

Proscuitto and Acorn Squash Risotto

March 25, 2016

This isn't a recipe I made on stream, but I made it for the biffle Renee and was pretty proud of the changes I made, so here you go. 

 

I nixed the radicchio salad completely, because radicchio is gross. The squash I cut the rind off, scooped out the seeds and large diced, before putting them in the oven. I didn't use sage but instead fried prosciutto strips to use in the risotto and as garnish. I also added a few garlic cloves in with the onions, and cooked them until they were browned.

 

Once the risotto was finished, I added some chopped, fried proscuitto, the acorn squash, and an aged goat cheese instead of the piave cheese.

 

But it ended up being delicious, so WORTH

Chicken Cacciatore

April 01, 2016

We altered this recipe a little bit. Instead of the parmesan cheese, we used an aged goat cheese. We added half an onion, thinly sliced, in with the garlic and mushrooms. And we deglazed the pan when we added the tomato sauce with about a tablespoon of red wine vinegar.

 

We also included a basic green salad. We made the dressing by soaking one minced shallot and one minced garlic clove in a tablespoon of champagne vinegar for about 10 minutes, then whisked in extra virgin olive oil (about two tablespoons? IDK) and added salt and pepper to taste. 

Adobo Style Chicken

This chicken was delicious and made for good leftovers as well! I think we may have overcooked the bok choy a bit but it was still wonderful!

Pork Mazemen

March 14, 2016

This recipe was something I had never tried before, but it ended up being delicious! The glaze was very rich and flavorful, but I would have added a little more spice to the dish myself! Great rainy day meal!

Seared Salmon & Spinach-Walnut Pesto

March 13, 2016

Dinner tonight was a delicious Salmon with mind-blowing Spinach-Walnut Pesto. We replaced the cheese in the recipe with an aged goat cheese, and it was absolutely phenomenal! I will definitely be making this again. 

Pretzel Burgers

March 05, 2016

These burgers are very simple, but we definitely mixed it up and made them our own! We didn't use the cheese sauce at all, and instead of raw onion on the burger, we coated it in a bit of rice flour and made crispy fried onion rings. All in all, I felt really proud of how this came out.
