I read through the recipe for that bread and it is very similar to the Artisan Bread in Five technique. I should go make some bread. Tomorrow I am making some Double Crunch Honey Garlic Pork Chops that I found on Pinterest since I didn't get to celebrate tempura day today. I'll let you guys know how it turns out.

STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE SALAD

Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of this before it got eaten.

Recipe found here.

Verdict: Seriously yummy. It was so good. Marshmallows, strawberries, and bananas in a whipped topping, yogurt, cheesecake pudding mix. Even my picky two year old ate it (well the marshmallows anyway). I'll be making this again.

I made another loaf yesterday that had garlic and parmesan cheese in it.  Seemed like it didn't rise up very well but it may be cause my honey did the actual baking when I wasn't home.  Who knows if he did it right LOL!

I made some bread today. I used the basic recipe from Ratio and the dutch oven method for baking. It's sort of like the no-knead bread except that the bread dough is kneaded like normal bread. But like the no-knead bread, you bake it in the dutch oven for the first 30 minutes which keeps moisture in and makes the crust awesome.



It came out really well! We ate is with some beef stew for dinner tonight.

The recipe is here, sort of. http://ruhlman.com/2009/12/making-sandwich-bread-with-the-53-ratio/ I mean, the basic ingredients are here, but the book goes into more detail and he gets into the fundamentals a lot more. I found it really helpful.

Homemade Marshmallows



recipe:  http://www.joyofbaking.com/candy/HomemadeMarshmallows.html
verdict:  Very good, very insanely sweet but good.  Excellent melting in hot chocolate.  Texture is different than store bought as it's much more smooth.  Almost feels like it melts in your mouth.  Recipe was easy enough, though the end goo was terribly sticky.  But it was worth it to show off for a party I went to.  No one had seen homemade marshmallows before, so it was the delight of the night.  I'll probably make them again, but it will be for special occasions.


Snow Ice Cream

Ingredients:
3/4 - 1 cup sugar, to taste
1 teaspoon imitation vanilla or 1/2 teaspoon real vanilla
2 cups heavy whipping cream or half-and-half
3 quarts clean, fresh snow (fluffy, not packed)
Directions:
In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, vanilla, and whipping cream.
Add snow, 2 cups at a time.
Stir until mixture is ice cream consistency.



Verdict:  With 8 new inches of snow today we decided it would be a fun day to try this out.  Girls had a blast decorating with sprinkles, chocolate chips, cherries, whatever, but only one girl actually ate it LOL.  It was a grainier texture in your mouth with the extra ice crystals and you basically had to mix the snow in and then eat it.  It was melting fast, but it was fun for a family night and something different to do.  I might do this again next year just for the fun of it, but we have an ice cream maker and that makes a better textured ice cream.

I have a delicious recipe to share! I found this recipe for Fried Goat Cheese and Salad on Pinterest.



Sorry for the crappy photo...I was in a hurry to eat it! The cheese was gooey and crunchy and perfect. I didn't actually make the salad listed in the recipe, but I think the pomegranate seeds would be a fantastic complement to the cheese. Instead, I sauteed some sliced brussels sprouts in balsamic vinegar and then added some marcona almonds on the side. Tasty!!

I love fried goat cheese and just put a batch of chevre in the fridge (I'm milking much earlier than normal this year).  I'm making that this weekend!

I'm on an experimenting kick. Tonight's dinner:


http://www.craftster.org/pictures/data/500/164265_02Jan13_DSCN0327.JPG

Recipe found here.

Verdict: Super yummy. Will definitely be making again. That being said, however, I did end up making some small changes. The biggest change was that I doubled the entire recipe EXCEPT the shells. I still had a few shells left over, and I didn't even stuff them super full. Also, I didn't use enough taco sauce, because I ended up not having enough. Still everyone loved them and they didn't even leave any left overs.

Strange coincidence, I made this same recipe just last week. I also made some minor changes. I believe my shells were smaller than 'jumbo', so I used 24 shells instead of 12 and those filled my 9x13 pan. I didn't double the rest of the recipe.

I made my own taco seasoning instead of buying a packet (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/taco-seasoning-i/ this recipe makes one packet) and I also used my own homemade tomato sauce instead of the taco sauce and salsa.

We also liked the dish very much. It does taste very taco-ish!
