my new recent thing was more of an ingredient than a recipe. i ran out of regular breadcrumbs but found a container of panko in my rummaging through the pantry, so i used those instead.

they worked well with chicken parm, and they really helped keep my ground turkey meatballs light and tender. the best i've ever made, in fact.

to heck with 4c or progresso brand breadcrumbs, i think i'm becoming a panko convert.

I made some carne guisada two weeks ago and it came out great - really tasty. I also tried making a lowfat vanilla bean cheesecake and completely boched it - it came out kind of browned and scrambled. What a waste of two vanilla beans :). After studying I better understand the science of making cheesecakes so I will try again (and will give it a proper water bath).

I like to make new recipes and/or try new skills/techniques at least weekly. There is so much to do and learn that I am afraid of running out of time to try all the things I want! :0

I made strip steaks with a wine reduction sauce. To be honest, I was disappointed in the sauce. I think the wine I used simply lacked enough body to partner with the strip steak. Also, it turned the mushrooms an unappetizing shade of puce. If I try it again, I will use a Burgundy wine or perhaps a Merlot.

I made mashed potatoes with buttermilk. It was good but I like my standard smashed taters better.

I also made some roasted cauliflower with Parmesan cheese, which I will make again. It was scrumptious.

It was a meal to try out a few new techniques from my TCU lessons!

May sound silly, but the standing rib roast I made the other day. I have cooked other cuts of beef but not a standing rib roast. Oh, how did it turn out? Mmmm...nice and rare!

I made a great new appetizer/munchie for Christmas Eve. It is a smoked sausage and bread thing....so good I almost made myself sick eating it. I am making it again for our Fiesta Bowl munchies tomorrow night! Go Sooners!

A friend gave me a couple of frozen fish that had been cleaned by an expert. They were clean, skinned and the meat looked still alive.

The were thawed earlier today, so I gave them a rubdown with EVOO and added a tablespoon of dill to the garlic butter I had made the other day. I added more garlic and spooned the mixture all over both sides and in the body.

I baked it at 350 until flaky. I sure am glad I baked them whole. They were bony! Fortunately, the meat just slid off the bones and I ended up with a skeleton. I love fresh fish.

That doesn't sound silly to me. I made my first standing rib roast, a small one, just last week. I liked it so much I'm making another right now
Gawd I love food
