Amazing Homemade Bagels!

They're so easy and fun to make, and I guarantee these are the best bagels you will ever have. Store-bought bagels will never taste the same. And I swear they have healing properties, which is why I'm making them today despite being sick.

Bagels!! (Makes 8)

* 1 package active-dry yeast
* 1 1/2 cups water, lukewarm
* 3 Tablespoons sugar
* 1 Tablespoon salt
* 4 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 tablespoon molasses

[EXTRA NOTE: I combined parts of this recipe from various online recipes, with my own modifications thrown in.]


When winter rolls around I always crave gnocchi. Last night I made homemade gnocchi and served it with a Boursin garlic cheese sauce with grilled portobella mushrooms.

You can find the recipe for easy homemade gnocchi at my blog, matzo&rice. In the past, I've served gnocchi with kielbasa, onions, and spinach. It's really vesatile. I sometimes just love them plain with a sprinkling of curry powder, Sriracha, and sour cream.


Lemon Basil Chicken etc

I wanted to make something new tonight, and this is what it ended up becoming (like some sort of Frankenstein... the world's most DELICIOUS Frankenstein, lol). My goal is to cook way more from scratch in the new year, so  here is a good start that tasted wonderful and is way better for me than fast food!

Recipe Under CutCollapse )

Dec. 13th, 2010

So, hopefully this is okay - I have no other place to even think about posting this! My boyfriend's mother got us a covered cooker from Pampered Chef, and I have no idea what the hell to do with it. I was thinking about treating it like an electric slow cooker - it's fairly heavy-duty stoneware - and throwing it in the oven for a few hours, but I don't know at what temperature I should be cooking in! I really want to try a pork tenderloin dish like this one, any idea on how to convert the cooking times? Advice and tasty dishes to try are appreciated as well!

The Best Soup I've Ever Had in my Life!

I made this last night, and HOLY SMOKES! It's the best soup I've ever had in my life (and possibly the best soup ever made in the history of mankind)!

I got the recipe for this Greek soup from the amazing cookbook, The Best Soups in the World by Clifford A. Wright. I've made slight changes to the recipe but most of it is copied verbatim from the book. Try it--you won't regret it!
