Great recipe -- super easy, and very flavorful. We really enjoyed it. Sabzi -- I think it would work with thighs, you'd just want to watch them as the cooking time would probably be different.
Salted caramel pumpkin cheesecake!
Fabulous! I tried this for a quick snack and it was SO tasty! I don't think I left mine in the broiler quite long enough but it was still awesome...next time I'll let it get even crispier/browner. :)
Pounded thin and pan fried :)
Love this! One of my favorite cocktails and harder to come by now that I don't live in the Bay Area anymore. So happy I can make it at home...well worth it to seek out the Amargo bitters (they're pretty inexpensive on Amazon).
German potato salad
I tend to think this is rude. Partly because there is no right or need to order a gin and tonic at any particular restaurant. You have so many other options: fix yourself a drink at home before going out (bonus: cheaper!), go to any nearby bar that stocks the G&T you like and get drinks before dinner, order a cocktail that does not include tonic water, order a glass of wine, don't order any alcohol at all, go out for a drink at a nearby bar after dinner, etc. etc. etc. Any and all of these options will be way less fussy and will still get you the outcome you want (not having to drink a tonic water you do not prefer).
Among other things, assuming you are not dining alone...please consider your dining companions. Whether it is technically rude or not, I would be absolutely mortified if someone at my table decided to do this sort of thing. I think you have overthought this situation and thus perhaps don't have the best perspective on it. Would you really want to dine with someone who was acting like this? If not, please don't inflict it on your friends.
super rich brownies :)
My mom's mac and cheese with peas
Hmmm. Got to go with banana cream. Ew.
biscuits and gravy
So cute! I would do it with a port wine sauce...love.
I really liked this recipe! Very quick to make, and good flavor. Plus, I like any recipe where everyone gets to build their own bowl with their preferred ratio of ingredients. :) I subbed in 1 T soy sauce for the fish sauce because I discovered at the last minute that we were out of fish sauce, and the broth was still delicious. I also sliced the chicken - just seemed easiest and it was very tasty!
