The Taste - TV Review
The Taste just concluded it's premiere season, and as a fan of many, many cooking shows I also predict it will be the last season as well. This in spite of the true industry power of Anthony Bourdain, the most real chef on television, and Nigella Lawson, the British beauty of a home cook who steals the screen in voluptuous fashion without breaking a sweat in the kitchen.
Guacamole is one of the most flavourful dips or spreads on this planet. The key is having healthy, slightly soft avocados. And yes, you will need some cilantro and lime juice, and also chopped tomatoes, garlic, red onion and salt and pepper. I made this for a snack initially, but it turned out to be my dinner since I was not able to stop dipping tostitos in it.
A lot of Chefs turn their nose up at using short cuts. Usually they are the same snobs that get weeded every time there are more than 3 order on the line at work. But I digress. This short cut is for at home that allows you to add risotto to your recipe skill set, and end up with a healthy, tasty and versatile dish - risotto.
Simple but classic dessert. Basically a custard that is set and cooled and drizzled with a warm caramel sauce.
Check out this quick microwave recipe for Mac and Cheese. Found it on Pinterest.
Made this tonight. So easy and so tasty.
You would not believe how good these frites were. And made without deep frying too!!
How to make French Onion Soup
I absolutely love French Onion Soup. Yeah, it may sound like a throw back to the 1970's but slurping up a spoon full of this gooey goodness really has the power to make everything about your day just a little better. Not only that, it's one of the most simple soup recipes to tackle, and can make you look like a pro because the presentation of this French Onion Soup recipe is really amazing! [See video recipe]
Just the seeping aroma of a chicken stock can make your lousy apartment come up just a notch higher, because it smells so good.
I know I have made these before but these are such awesome, tasty and quick meals when all you have to do is grill a fresh chicken breast and then add some flavour using spreads, veggies and cheese. Pretty hard to go wrong.
