Oh what a week. Stuff happened, and then other stuff happened. I don’t very much want to talk about the stuff, but I am always up for talkin’ about foodstuffs.
Duh, we already knew that, Annie.
But really. When you don’t want to talk about life, food is always a better topic than weather.
White Cheddar Scalloped Potatoes! Y’all know me and my love for cheese. And if you didn’t, now you do.
Chocolate hazelnut shortbread cookies. I wish I could say more, but they speak for themselves. Hey Santa! Look what I got for youuuu.
Salted Caramel Macaroons. Want want want!
Chocolate Coated Cookie Shots. What is life?
Ricotta Polenta Bake? With caramelized veggies? Where’s my spoon?
Gimme donut. Sufganyiot Jelly Donuts.
Non-food related: I just started Netflixing How To Get Away with Murder. I wouldn’t mind sitting next to Dean Thomas in potions class. Er…torts. Um, I hope Jason isn’t reading this. I love you, babe.😘 I only half know what’s going on because I don’t actually watch it, it’s just on in the background while I do other things. Non-Dean related — someone buy me this coat. Actually, don’t, cause I’m not bold enough to wear it, but isn’t it radiant?
This baba ganoush was loosely based off of Kenji’s baba recipe. Y’all know Kenji, right? Jason makes fun of me because I’ll snap in the kitchen and say stuff like, “Kenji says that it works better if you slice it this way. Don’t put it on the heat yet, Kenji says not to. Oh? you liked the eggs, did you? That’s Kenji’s recipe. ”
But I’m actually a bad fan because I haven’t even bought The Food Lab yet. Don’t judge!
This is one of the most amazing dips I’ve ever made, but I have a confession to make. I truly intended it to taste like pizza, but it kinda doesn’t. It has a lot of pizza elements in it, and it’s so savory and good and addicting that I didn’t change the name. Because pizza is savory and good and addicting. If anyone in the western world told me they’d never been in a post-pizza carb coma, I’d probably call them a liar. That’s not always a bad thing, pizza comas can be hangover cures, but if you’re mad busy, you don’t want to be in a starchy haze. And this is a darn good solution.
What are your favorite dips?
