I make a delicious mac and cheese with goat cheese and caramelized onions. It's SUPER rich, but quite delicious in small portions.
chipotle mashed sweet potatoes. yum!
hands down...sweet potato fries. although i am also very fond of chipotle mashed sweet potatoes.
@carriebw, that recipe is from bon appetit. i made it for the first time on friday, but substituted 1% milk for the half and half. it's so amazing that i'm making it again tonight and contemplating it for thanksgiving.
the sweetness of the caramelized onions and the tangy-ness of the goat cheese really set it apart.
roasted chicken and roasted veggies. perfect at this time of year!
the food processor, of course!
shopping at the farmers market and sourcing meat from a local butcher.
new orleans, no doubt. all 6 times. :)
i'm excited to get a new oven this weekend. so, i plan to spend this fall baking up a storm! especially pumpkin.
maybe this is a bit passe, but i would love to do a column on cooking with fresh local seasonal produce from the farmers market.
chicken and andouille sausage gumbo.
really good tomatoes are best plain. or just a touch of salt.
pretty much any african cuisine.
in the north end in boston. yum!
i love making preserves! i have already made strawberry-marsala jam with rosemary, black forest preserves, plum-ginger jam with lemon, and garlic mustard dill pickles. but plain old strawberry jam is my all-time favorite.
a friend recently gave me plums from her brother's tree. i have never had a plum that ripe before! they were amazing.
omg, mardi gras dinner in new orleans 4 years ago. it is still the best meal i have ever eaten.
other than rick bayless? either bobby flay or michael chiarello.
blueberry crumble. both the blueberries and the simplicity of the crumble are so very american.
calvados! hands down.
