If you are in Portland for a weekend which dinner or restaurant you wouldn't miss to visit ?
So here is the deal, I am not a professional baker or cook or chef. Just another food blogger, who started the cooking craziness just about 2 months back .. or 3 ? whatever !
I need help guys .. when to use brown sugar and when should we use white sugar ... seriously ?? does it make too much of a difference !! Give me some gyan here .. please !!
For back up, I had few frozen foods in the refrigerator and pizza delivery on my speed dial. For stuffing, I used Shrimp and Portobello mushroom and made a basil pesto sauce, which is one of our favorite pasta sauce.
I was never that big a fan of garlic but recently, I have started adding garlic to all my dishes. I just love the aroma when it starts sizzling in hot oil !! I use it in curry , in salsa sauce, in pizza , pasta .. every possible dish I cook... not in desserts .. no ! LOL !!
In India you get this garlic pickle , tiny cloves of garlic dipped in oil and some masala and we saw that in an Indian Store and immediately picked it.
How bad is it ?? !!
Remember the nursery rhyme that goes, "Little Miss Muffet, Sat on a tuffet, Eating her curds and whey..."? Guess what she was eating cottage cheese ! :) In fact, a little known fact about cottage cheese is that's how it got it's name. It was named "Cottage Cheese" because it was made in cottages, which are small country houses. That was my lesson for the day !
Paneer as we call it in India is a very common dish among North Indians and if you Google, you will find a zillion ways of preparing them. My initial plan was to prepare chilly paneer but then yesterday night we had some real spicy dinner; so I thought of making it tangy with a little bit of kick! ;)
Chicken Kebab with lots of herb. Delicious and juicy in every bite !...
