leave your inhibitions at the door
Way, way, back in the beginning of this blog I used to do pro football predictions. To tie it in with the site, I spun a fruit or vegetable to pick winners of the games. Don’t laugh – those essentially random predictions often beat a panel of ESPN experts. If I chose more winners than the produce, I would feature it in a recipe or two.
I hope you all are having a terrific start to 2016!
I skipped posting last week’s #TBT recipe, but I had a great excuse. We were hosting an intimate gathering for New Year’s Eve and I was busy trying to decide what the theme of the party would be. It was a tough choice between this
We actually combined the two!! Unfortunately I was too drunk to take pictures/video of how we did it. AND I didn’t get pictures of the scallops I made. AND I guess I should’ve warned you that second one was NSFW.
Yes, I suck. But this recipe doesn’t.
I got this recipe from “The Gastrokid Cookbook”, creators of GastroKid.com. I picked up the book when Borders was closing and it’s easily the best $4 I’ve ever spent. It’s not so much a cookbook with recipes that kids can do, although there are a few that they can. It’s more of meals that lean toward the adventurous that everyone in the family can enjoy. It’s definitely not the usual family cookbook. Everything I’ve made from it has been a solid hit with everyone in the family and were very easy to make – salmon saltimbocca, Spotted Pig’s Gnudi (gnocchi made with ricotta), roasted chickpea bruschetta.
