Bobby Flay


I got this from Bobby Flay.

But I had to modify it. I didn't have blue cheese, so I used Blue Cheese salad dressing. And instead of cooking the bacon in a skillet, I did it on the grill. And we were out of buns so I put White Bread in the toaster.

Starbucks Xmas Cup 1


Italian Roast w/Cannellini Beans

I picked up the magazine Cuisine at Home: Slow Cooker Menus and saw this recipe on page 54 - 55. The photo of it looked delicious, so I decided to give it a try.

3 lb boneless beef rump roast, trimmed
1 cup sliced carrots
6 new potatoes, but into thirds
1 medium onion, sliced
4 Tbsp minced fresh basil leaves, divided
4 Tbsp minced fresh oregano leaves, divided
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp Koser salt, divided
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz)
1 can tomato paste (6 oz)
2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 can cannellini beans, drained

Layer carrots, poatatoes, and most of the onion slices in a 4-to6-qt. slow cooker; top with roast.

Mash 2 Tbsp basil, 2 Tbsp oregano, garlic, 1 tsp salt, and pepper flakes in a small bowl; spread on meat.

Combine tomato sauce, tomato paste, remaining basil and oregano, and Italian seasoning in a bowl. Pour tomato mixture over roast; top with remaining onion slices. Cover; cook until meat is fork-tender, on high setting for 5-6 hours or on low setting for 8-9 hours.

Stir beans into sauce and cook on high-heat setting for 10-15 minutes. Remove roast from cooker. Let rest for 5-10 before thinly slicing meat across the grain. Skim grease from sauce. Spoon beans, vegtables, sauce over roast

Beef Stroganoff

I know, it's been awhile since I've posted and I'm sorry. I graduated culinary school and I'm currently working at a seafood restaurant which I just got hired at...basically I'm the salad cook. Which....doesn't involve any cooking. V_V

Anyways, I have this AMAZING OMFG recipe that you ALL must try. I know. You're thinking, " Beef Stroganoff? Seriously? I'll just go get some Hamburger Helper kthnxbai."

BUT DON'T. This recipe...is SOOOO GOOD. I made it TWICE at school (once for regular learning purposes, once for exam) and I wanted so badly to eat it all myself but I had to share the goodness that was this dish with my room mates.

And I KNOW. You're thinking, " Wtf sour cream and dill pickle?" BUT ITS GOOD. The cold crispness of the pickle, the tartness of the brine, the cool creamy sour cream with the hot thick sauce on the noodles UNNNGHHH I think I just came.

You guys have to try this dish PLEASE. I promise you that you will love it.
