the food around here lately

I bet you guys were thinking we haven’t been eating much interesting stuff around here lately, huh? Since I had a couple people mention they miss me posting about food, I decided to give it a go once more. We have been eating some yummy and crazy stuff! Although, I must say, I’m not near as vigilant about getting pictures of everything we’re eating these days, so you’ll have to settle with just the links.

We had a vegetarian friend over for lunch one day so I made these Grilled Goat Cheese Sandwiches with Fig and Honey. They were really more like dessert but so yummy. And perfect with curried carrot soup.

And for you gluten free folks, these are some of the easiest gluten free cookies I’ve made and they are SO yummy: Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies. Mine were about half almond butter too. Very crumbly, but it didn’t matter because they tasted so good.

A surprise hit were these Quinoa ‘Burgers’, which really aren’t burgers at all – more like pancakes but more filling. And they freeze well too. Sadly, I am not sure what to do about quinoa since it’s come to light that Bolivians aren’t getting to eat as much of their staple food source because of the rising global prices of quinoa. But the farmers are getting paid more . . . It’s quite the conundrum.

Just in case we were starting to be suspected of being vegetarians, I made Balsamic and Whiskey Steak which then lead to the leftovers becoming Steak and Eggs for breakfast, complete with crispy hash potatoes. Naturally.

And to ward of all the vampires we have in Austin, I gave the Vampire Steak a try. Nice and garlicky.

And another surprise hit? Balsamic Roast Beef. I strained off the cooking liquid after it crock potted all day and put it in the fridge to remove the layer of fat and then cooked it down to make a thick sauce and reintroduced it to the shredded pot roast. Much more flavorful than your standard pot roast.

And seriously, if you don’t think you like cauliflower, try roasting it. I could eat a whole head of cauliflower like popcorn when it’s prepared this way. I’ve been eating it several times a week. (And really, isn’t every vegetable better when it’s roasted?)

And finally, a little something Jude and I whipped up (literally) for dessert at a friend’s house, a Cannoli Tart. It was surprisingly similar to a true Cannoli and not very sweet at all.

Honey Butter French Bread

So, you can see in the background of that picture my brand spanking new (to me) Kitchen Aid mixer that I used to create these little sandwich size baguettes of French bread. Really, I made these just to exercise my new machine, but I thought they turned out great, just like French bread you would buy at the store.Yum! I can’t wait to figure out other great creations to create with this wonderful machine. I may have to revisit those marshmallows again!

Individual Butter Cakes With Honeyed Pears

Oops. Sorry if you saw this post a little early. The WordPress interface didn’t quite understand that when I hit publish, I wanted it to publish Thursday morning!

I love seasonal desserts. Well, really, I just love dessert in general, but this time I will claim that it is just the seasonal dessert that I love. 🙂 These were very delicious – they had sauteed, honeyed pears tucked into the middle so it was almost like having a little pie. Now you’re actually supposed to remove the cake from the ramekins but mine were not being cooperative so they got served still in the containers. So if you follow the recipe, the cake would be served almost like an upside down cake (and it would have served 8, but I split the recipe so it would serve 4) . . . but oh well – it still tasted yummy!

Honey Chicken Skewers with Grilled Corn Salad

Continuing my cooking new recipes spree, I tried this recipe out on a couple of friends. It’s funny because I notice myself gravitating towards honey and soy glazes. What can I say, I like the combo. 🙂 This glaze was almost like a honey barbecue sauce since it had the addition of ketchup (which now I have in my head to try and make ketchup from scratch, thanks Sheri – I’m still waiting on that recipe!).

Overall, this recipe was quick and easy. I did change one thing since I had limited grill space since we were grilling inside – I cut the corn from the cob and then put it in a skillet with melted butter. I didn’t stir, I just allowed the corn to caramelize for awhile before I stirred it. Once it was done, I stirred in the scallions. I think that’s my favorite way to make corn. Anyways, it’s a nice, quick, weeknight meal (although we ate it on Sunday) that I would recommend for people to try out if they like they like honey BBQ sauce.
