I was playing in a book, Ovenless Desserts, and came across a Roasted Marshmallow Milkshake. That sounded fabulous. I made it and tasted it and was immediately transported to a campfire out in the woods. I’m a barbecue fanatic. I was out back at 7 this morning getting the fire going to smoke dinner. I adore injections of smokiness wherever the opportunity strikes. Smoky marshmallows. What if you added a little more smokiness with a shot of mezcal? Oh gosh, is that ever good! I’d like to introduce you to my favorite boozy milkshake, the Roasted Marshmallow and Mezcal Milkshake. Thank you to Mamie Fennimore for the inspiration and thank you to Cider Mill Press for letting me share it with you! If you’re making this for small people, omit the mezcal and make it as the author intended! 😀 I’ll tell you more about that book after the recipe.

All across the state of Texas, tamales and queso are on every Christmas Eve table. I thought I’d start off December with a big tamalefest!

Those fresh, delicious tamales are quite a treat!

Oh, this time of year puts me right in the mood for Scandinavian baked treats, so I grabbed Trine Hahnemann’s Scandinavian Baking: Sweet and Savory Cakes and Bakes, for Bright Days and Cozy Nights. She never disappoints!

Are you obsessed with gyoza, potstickers, and dumplings? Me too!
Paradise Yamamoto’s book, Gyoza: The Ultimate Dumpling Cookbook: 50 Recipes from Tokyo’s Gyoza King – Pot Stickers, Dumplings, Spring Rolls and More!, gives recipes for the classic chopped meat and meat and vegetable fillings that everyone knows and loves. Then he shows you all the things possible with gyoza. The book is filled with 50 wildly creative, delicious potstickers. He shows 7 different ways to fold them, and 6 ways to cook them. The folds have a definite learning curve to them, but they will be delicious right away. You’ve got plenty of time to improve those folds! And it gets a little easier each time. Especially if you obsessively cook your way through the book! 😀 Continue reading “Paradise Yamamoto’s recipe for Bacon & Egg Carbonara Potstickers and Cookbook Review: Gyoza”
I have a *massive* food crush on Samin Nosrat. She has the enthusiasm and food joy of Julia Child. She’s a natural teacher. She doesn’t want to impress you, but rather wants to demystify everything about the kitchen so that you can cook well. And by you, I mean everybody. She doesn’t want you to follow exact directions. She wants you to actually understand. That’s pretty powerful stuff! Continue reading “I have a massive food crush on Samin Nosrat. Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat.”
