This throwdown was with Lou Malnotti and can be found on foodnetwork.com. I didn't include his entire recipe as it would have appeared long and intimidating. This crust is more buttery than normal pizza dough and looked very authentic. Unusual assembly of toppings: the cheese goes UNDER the ingredients and the sauce goes on last.
Do NOT reject this recipe without trying it!!! One of the most unusual and tasty pizzas I've ever tasted. (I originate from Chicago, btw). I can't believe this is the first time I've tried ricotta on a pizza. Full credit goes to Smitten Kitten and her blog. I didn't change a thing, apart from not making homemade ricotta.
From the awesome Reboot Your Life website. Affiliated with Joe Cross from "Sick, Fat and Nearly Dead". If you are, like me, are among those who are seriously questioning the food and lifestyle choices which are producing such negative results, I recommend Joe's movie as a starting point, and the website is loaded with recipes for juicing, and vegetarian meals for those not ready to take the full plunge.
Take along snack for the healthy brown bag. From Fat Free Vegan, an unbelievably beautifully prepared website for all things healthy. While this recipe is not low fat, most of her recipes are. Check out her blog page.
This won on Food Network's Utlimate Challenge, courtesy of Brigitte Nguyen. Looked and was judged overly spicy with the sliced jalapenos as posted, so I suggest at least seeding them, if not halving the quantity. Apart from that, I called it the winner before the dishes were even made; can't wait to try them.
OK, so there was a great closeout on holiday mixers, 24 cans for $2. Problem was that half of them were tonic water, not a fav. Couldn't find a really tempting recipe, and there are no gin drinkers in the house, so improv time. Had some stragglers hanging around the fridge, and they conspired to make one great tasting spritzer/punch. Could be enhanced with gin or vodka.
I've been looking for a simple no-cook egg nog using egg substitutes. This sounds easy enough: no cook, blend, chill and serve. The recipe called for 1 cup non-dairy creamer (not my favorite), so I'm going to add some chia seeds to give it more body. Some alternate ideas include using dates and bananas in place of some or all of the sweetener. Might also work as a base for a tasty green smoothie.
