What I’m Reading Today

The start of a new era! Things may be changing politically but, Mmm…that’s good will remain the same. Here’s what I’m reading today…

Maybe I’m just itching to get to Asia but, in today’s SF Chronicle there is a delicious looking recipe for Vietnamese Beef with Lettuce Wraps. This is a great dinner-healthy, fun to put together, and something for everyone. Works great with chicken or shrimp too.

Slow and low is the trick to cooking perfect caramelized onions. Today’s LA Times dissects the perfect meltingly sweet onions. Read the article and then try a recipe or two. They all look good-Potato Gratin with Caramelized Onions and Rib Eye with Caramelized Onion Marmalade. Heck, I like the things on my eggs so you can do anything you like with ’em.

This Cajun recipe in today’s NY Times looks rich and almost over the top but, the combination of eggplant, Merguez sausages, and a bechamel might just make the splurge well worth it. Eggplant and Merguez Casserole-yum!

Of course I could not leave you with out one sweet treat today so, today’s Washinton Post, amongst the glittering photos of Barack and Michelle, has a recipe for Soft Centered Chocolate Pudding with Espresso. It calls for injecting hot espresso into the pudding with a turkey syringe (who has one of these?) or a turkey baster-sounds very Alinea-like but, doable too.
