Yvette is the Martha Stewart of the JCC, but capable of normal human interaction
I'm a pretty good cook. Maybe i'll post some pics later.
Please do post some!
I'm an absolute foodie & I was wayyy too excited to see this thread on the front page. I made Italian meatball burgers on Monday, stir-fry garlic pork with tomatoes & green onion on Tuesday, soy-ketchup-sesame flank steak on Wednesday, & mozzarella and green onion risotto yesterday. Right now I'm working on some red velvet cupcakes for a bridal shower. I can post some pictures once I'm finished!
Sorry for the double post, guys, but I wanted to share some photos
Red velvet with cream cheese frosting for a bridal shower. I would have used a different frosting & I would have decorated them differently, but I just fulfilled the bride's requests.
Cut-outs with royal icing
S'mores cupcakes with marshmallow frosting
Mini vanilla cupcakes for a baby shower
Chocolate cake with awful Wilton buttercream frosting
Chocolate chip tiramisu cheesecake
Banana cupcakes with cinnamon honey boiled frosting
Sorry for so many...I like to bake, haha.
That is amazing.
Will you marry me?
make me a key lime pie
Thanks, everyone! My baking has never elicited a marriage proposal, but I suppose there's a first time for everything hahah.
And Whitey, I've never made a key lime pie. My family isn't crazy about lemon/lime. I'll have to try that sometime anyway.
Today I made poached barramundi with lemon-sauteed mushrooms and a cream sauce.
Thank you Julia Child for the recipe! But NO THANKS for turning me into a sauce freak.
Another dinner compliments of Julia Child.
I made boeuf bourguignon and it turned out really well considering it was my first attempt ever.
sausage and grits
So jealous!!! It looks delicious Yvette!
I made some spicy three cheese (Cheddar, Colby, and Pepper jack) macaroni and cheese today with whole grain spiral pasta, it is yummy delicious but the whole grain pasta makes it look weird
Thank you! It did turn out pretty yummy.
And I love macaroni and cheese. Your post reminds me it is time for it again.
Macaroni and cheese is delicious and comfort food!!
Winter comfort foods!!
Beef Stroganoff (thank you Paula Deen!)
Braised lamb shanks (kudos to bestrecipes.com.au)
Agree with Rummy, mmmmm
One of the perks of winter is all the yummy comfort foods.
I have quite a few pics to add to this. During my little timeout, my social life decided to come back to life and this has been the best summer i've had since 2003.
tomorrow i will post a few pics of the bushel of blue crabs my friends and I caught and steamed the other day. And a few pics of a stingray, but we didn't eat that,I would like to think that steve irwin would be happy that it died. I hope they aren't endangered or anything, because the guys who caught was too scared to throw it back and I got a little knife happy since it was going to die anyways.
At the request of Andrew, I'm sharing my recipe for banana peanut butter chocolate chip bars.
1/2 c unsalted butter, softened
3/4 c packed brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 overripe banana, mashed
3/4 c peanut butter
1 c flour
1 c chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 370 degrees. Grease an 8x8, 9x9, or 11x7 pan.
Cream together butter & sugar, then beat in the eggs. Add banana & peanut butter, mix to combine. Stir in flour until well combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
Pour into the greased pan & bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Insert a knife or toothpick into center to check for doneness [if it comes out clean, bars are done].
I am so saving that Erin!!
Wanted kabobs on the grill and put together what I had in the frig.
Steak, onions, red pepper and bacon. Marinated the steak in teriyaki then wrapped it in turkey bacon.
On the grill.
Dinner is served with a vanilla snapps laden pineapple smoothie.
It was most delightful.
That looks scrumptious.
I made curried, roasted, mixed vegetables in the toaster oven, mixed them with whole wheat couscous, and stirred in almonds, hazelnuts, raisins and cranberries.
No pictures though.
That seriously sounds yummy! I love nuts and berries in foods. I'm planning on making a chicken salad that has pecans and craisins in it.
That looks delish, Frieda! And I notice you are drinking out of a Captain Kirk glass?
