My brother, Andy, gave me Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill cookbook for Christmas and I’ve already made a handful of recipes from the book. Needless to say, I’m obsessed. Everything has been incredible so far, including the meal that I made on NYE. This short rib recipe didn’t let me down either–it was deeeelicious! I decided to make some cilantro oil as well, to give the dish a pop of color.
It’s finally Friday!! Even though work has been super busy, this week went by painfully slow. I’m looking forward to the long weekend and plan on indulging in this banana trifle tonight. :-)
For some reason, I’ve never made Indian food. After making and eating this delicious chicken tikka masala, I wonder why I waited so long. This dish was so good, with just the right amount of spice! I’ll definitely be making it again soon.
Happy New Year! I made this incredibly delicious (and time consuming!!) pork tenderloin for New Year’s Eve dinner and it was an absolute hit. Not a drop was left on anyone’s plate! I highly advise splitting the workload up into two days, since the sauces can be made a day ahead. :-)
I can’t believe Christmas is only a few days away. Fortunately, I only have to buy one more present, and already wrapped all of my other gifts–that’s a first for me! Considering the past few months have been extremely busy, I’m really looking forward to relaxing at home with family for the next couple weeks. :-)
It’s finally starting to feel like winter in LA, now that it’s cooled down and we’ve had some rain. I couldn’t think of a better meal to eat while bundled up inside than hearty chili. This southwestern chili was full of flavor and unbelievably delicious. It’s even tastier the next day for leftovers!
My roommate and I are hosting a white elephant party tonight and are providing some of the appetizers. I wanted to make something with ground beef, since I had some on hand, so I decided to make a velvety and delicious beef queso dip. I speak from experience when I say that this dip is addicting…I couldn’t stop “taste testing” it last night!
Happy belated Thanksgiving! I spent the holiday at home with my family eating mass amounts of food and drinking copious amounts of wine. We typically celebrate Thanksgiving at a family friend’s home, but since they were out of town this year, we gobbled up the turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes at my house. I made this decadent pumpkin pie for dessert and it was a huge hit. Although time-consuming, the pie was absolutely worth all the effort!
I hope everyone is having a great Thursday! Can you believe Thanksgiving is already next week? Next week! This month has flown by, and since work has been insanely busy, it’s made the time go by even faster. I worked the Hollywood Film Awards last weekend, and am working the American Music Awards this weekend. I can’t wait!
I almost can’t put into words how incredible this sandwich tastes. Its complexity of flavors is ridiculous, from the sweetness of the honey ham to the bite of the Jarlsberg cheese to the savoriness of the pesto aioli. The crispy, tomato basil bread from Panera makes the sandwich even more delicious, if that’s possible.
