Smitten Kitchen Recipes I MUST Try

In Uncategorized on December 2, 2009 at 4:32 am

I love Smitten Kitchen Food Blog.. it must be in my top 10, without a doubt. Here are a few photos and titles of recipes I will be trying within the next month I am home and scratching my head with what to do with myself…. NO more papers or exams, at home, AKA I will be baking and cooking immensely. GET READY TO SALIVATE…

BRAISED BALSAMIC BRUSSEL SPROUTS WITH PANCETTA

Thank you for combining two of my ABSOLUTE favorites… Balsamic Reduction and Brussel Sprouts — I’m sure these are so highly addictive. My mentality with sprouts are as such… they’re a VERY healthy veggie, regardless of the amount of butter you may or may not lather on top!

HAMANTASCHENS

We used to make these Passover Treats at my day school, except mine looked NOTHING like these, nor did they taste as good I’m sure. I love the fruit filling in the center and the never ending options for the fruit filling.

SUMMER PEA AND ROASTED RED PEPPER PASTA SALAD

I am such a sucker for pasta salads — I love heating them up with a quick chicken dish, or even having it cold with some Feta sprinkled on top… This one specifically caught my eye for its incorporation of peas and orchiette pasta, YUM.

ASPARAGUS, ARTICHOKE, AND SHIITAKE RISOTTO

Risotto + Artichokes + Mushrooms + Asparagus = WHY are you asking any questions? GO MAKE THIS RIGHT NOW. You literally cannot NOT like this dish. I guarantee it.

THE BEST BIRTHDAY CAKE

My family isn’t big on getting or making me birthday cakes, but I assure you — If I wanted one, they’d buy or make me one… depending on my own preferences. While I HATE chocolate itself, and prefer white ‘fake’ chocolate, I would love a crisp and clean yellow cake with chocolate icing and mutli colored “sprinkles”.

CREAM CHEESE POUND CAKE AND STRAWBERRY COULIS

Whenever I go out for dinners, my typical after dinner order is as follows: a nonfat cappuccino and any dessert that incorporates cake and strawberries and whipped cream. While this dish is lacking the whipped cream, the cream cheese incorporated into the pound cake is a good runner up.
