Rösti

Rösti

I’ve been trying out more simple recipes nowadays. This one requires potatoes, salt and butter. The directions couldn’t be any simpler either; boil potatoes, peel and shred, pan fry and salt. Rösti is a Swiss potato pancake. The dish is similar to hash browns or […]

Beer Battered Veggies.

Beer Battered Veggies.

Beer battered veggies. I never made them before. I usually use tempura, Panko, or Italian seasoned breadcrumbs when deep frying veggies.  Reason being that beer batter is thicker and ends up mushy if not done right. Add more flour if you find that the veggies […]

Pizza Week – Day 2 – Roasted Veggie Pizza

Pizza Week – Day 2 – Roasted Veggie Pizza

Well, it was a good idea in my head. But not in reality. The roasted vegetables were fantastic. I just wish I didn’t use this dough: I thought I would get the same results (bubbly, crisp crust) but it didn’t turn out the way I […]

Cowboy Caviar

Cowboy Caviar

I don’t eat beans. I think I’ve only used beans in, oh wait, I’ve never used beans! Maybe I’ve eaten soybeans or green beans, but that’s it. I never grew up with canned beans so I never think to buy them. Then I tried something […]

Insalata Caprese (or, Caprese Salad).

Insalata Caprese (or, Caprese Salad).

  Bear with me, I’m not feeling my greatest this morning. Not that you really want to know about it – this is a food blog, and if I told you I’m sick to my stomach and my entire body aches, well, that doesn’t sound […]
