You start testing recipes for another cookbook and what happens? You totally forget your regular Wednesday blog post. Thanks to a friendly reminder for my mom, here we go…
I’ve made a recipe like this before and it was fanstastic. I’m excited to try Bar Bambino’s recipe for Polpette de Melanzane (meatballs of eggplant) from today’s San Francisco Chronicle. The polpette can be made ahead and cooked at the last minute-in fact I’d bet they’d hold together better this way. Only thing I’d do differently is to add a little piece of fresh mozzarella inside each one. Yum!
If you’re already making your holiday list, read this article in the Los Angeles Times. There are some amazing new cookbooks out and Amy Scattergood reviews a handful. On my list: David Tanis’ “A Platter of Figs and Other Recipes” and Jamie Oliver’s “Jamie at Home” (record this show on the Food Network-it’s amazing).
Julia Moskin, of the New York Times, wrote a well researched article on the new wave nutrient packed processed foods. Is eating a ‘fat burning waffle’ or a beet powder fortified peanut butter really as good as eating the real deal? See for yourself…
You thought I’d actually get through this post without a link to something sweet? Right! The Seattle Times has a recipe for Pecan Brickle Bars. Love the combo of pecans, chocolate, and caramel. Mmm…that’s good!
Happy Reading and Happy Cooking
