More Tester Recipes, Breakfast and Barbeque. All the Basic Food Groups

This is just a quick round-up of some of things I’ve been cooking lately.  First off a couple more tester for Diet, Dessert and Dogs making an appearance.  First off is a frittata with zucchini and chard, looking incredibly bright in my afternoon lit apartment .    If you didn’t get it from the blush color, [...]

Pineapple Collards over Polenta Stuffing and Brussel Hash

More adventures from the wild world of Appetite for Reduction…I’m moving on to other things soon, I swear.  As far as the collards go, these were pretty good and they’re a nice change from my standard collards recipe so I’m sure I’ll come back to it at some point, although a bit of spice would’ve [...]

It still smelled great on the plate, but the flavors weren’t quite as complex as they seemed. In addition to that, something is giving [...]

Cornmeal-Masala Rousted Brussel Sprouts with Spiced Yogurt Sauce over Chickpea Basmati Rice

This one isn’t a looker, but boy was it filling and delicious. This was a combination of three V’con recipes (count em!) and not one steered me wrong. I did fail on my secondary mission of getting my other half to like brussel sprouts, although I won a small victory as he DID enjoy the [...]
