Chicken with shallots and wine

I sauteed chicken tenders with shallots, salt and pepper and herbs de provence in olive oil and when they were cooked and caramelized I added some rose wine and reduced it down.  Turned out pretty strong flavored but good.  Making tacos with the leftover chicken and roast pork tonight.  Next post.  

Shallot Oregano Cheddar Fried Eggs

This was experimental and delicious.  I sautéed some shallots in olive oil to mix into scrambled eggs but I decided to just crack the eggs right over the shallots and cook them slowly.  The caramelized shallots were imbedded into the egg crust and the top had melted cheddar with fresh oregano.  It was such a good combination.  Kind of rich…

Roast Pork Quesadilla on Moroccan Flatbread

I discovered these delicious Moroccan Flatbreads at the Union Square Farmers Market.  They have plain and this kale, shallot and cheddar version that is so good!  I used my shredded pork from before to make a quesadilla with it.  It was really great!  I also garnished it with some of the light colored sautéed veggies from before and the classic…

Roast Pork Nachos

When we were in Utah for Kenzie’s wedding, we stopped by our favorite neighborhood Emigration Market.  We were talking to the butcher about this roast we used to buy called a spoon roast.  He told us that we could use a Pork Boston Butt or Shoulder or a Beef Chuck Roast.  He gave us a container of the seasoning they…

Sauteed Vegetables (light version)

I got my teeth whitened the other day and they said I had to eat light colored foods for 2 days!  How is that possible?  It was torture.  I walked by the farmers market and picked up a potato, an onion, a yellow squash, fresh garlic, a white bell pepper and a yellow heirloom tomato.  It was all cut up…

Baked Canadian Salmon on Vegetables

I bought a piece of Canadian Salmon at Fairway.  It was more expensive than their regular salmon but tasted amazing.  I think partly because I didn’t overcook it.  350 degrees for 15 minutes.  I cooked it in Trader Joes Island Soyaki marinade which is really good.  From the ingredient list it has soy sauce, pineapple juice, ginger, garlic, onion, vinegar,…

Blueberry Raspberry Peach Bread Pudding with Caramel Sauce

I had so much delicious summer fruit that I didn’t want to waste I came up with this variation of a recipe I like to make.  I used lots of eggs maybe 6 or 8 and regular milk and buttermilk.  I used my homemade vanilla since it seems to be almost ready.  I wanted to see if it was effective…

Frozen Waffle Batter Experiment

I found a recipe for the ultimate waffle.  I don’t have pictures from the original experiment but I do remember there was a lot of cornstarch in the batter.  Anyway, I saved the leftovers and decided to find out what would happen if I cut up the frozen batter and cooked it directly on the waffle iron.  This is what…
