Let’s talk serious stuff here folks… COOKIES! That’s right… we caught you binge eating those little suckers, just like we are. Hey, it’s okay… times like these we get away with it and say, ’tis the season. So go ahead and munch away. We are not going to spoil it for you.
So….on the topic of cookies….do you have a go to cookie recipe for the holidays? If, so please share! We are always looking to try out new combinations and creations.
We were not sure how these little guys would turn out, but man are we pleased we gave it a test-run. They are not the pecan tassies that Mr. B grew up on, however they are a very easy and delicious substitute. SCORE! If you decide to give it a go as well, give us a shout and let us know what you thought. Don’t forget that tall glass of cold milk too. Hey, just remember, ‘Tis the season!
This dish has been on my Culinary Bucket List, and I’m a tad bit embarrassed to say that it intimidated me and it kept getting pushed towards the end of my must make or bake list. Eek.. Speaking of bucket lists, do you have any? I use an Iphone and keep a huge list using the notes app of culinary things I want to try to make, and that way it’s always handy when I’m getting our shopping list together.
After actually making the dish, I realized that there is quite a bit of prep work before actually getting to cook it. BUT First, don’t make the same mistake that I did… forgetting the beef needs to marinate over night. Oops. It delayed our dinner by one night. Double oops. Secondly, prep all your ingredients the night before. Trust me! Major time saver if trying to serve on a work/ school week night. And third, enlist someone to help or do the kitchen cleanup along the way. (Thanks Mr. B). HUGE HELP!
We just received our new Le Creuset Dutch oven as a Christmas gift to one another, so I figured what better way to break her in than with an extra special meal like boeuf bourguignon.
Maybe you haven’t tried, or are unfamiliar with the dish. That’s okay! Together lets dive right into in with our forks and spoons. This rich beef stew is made with beef braised in red wine and beef broth, it’s flavored with thick cuts of bacon batons, mushrooms, garlic, onions, carrots, and salt/ pepper to taste. Oh my stars, it is out of this world d-elicious! We ended up serving it over some nice buttery Cavatappi noodles.
