only explanation for this dinner: @ephonehome has been studying food network without me. sautéed cod with caper, lemon, garlic, white wine sauce over last night’s spinach risotto (which tastes better today??). KILLED IT, MY SIR.
Rolled SUGAR COOKIES are not that hard to make using flexible baking mats and keeping your dough cold. Valentine's Day would be the perfect reason to give these a try. Mine worked out perfect the first time I ever made them. For specific tips check out the recipe description on the blog, link in bio.
1 cup white rice flour
1 cup tapioca starch
½ cup potato starch
2 tsp xanthan gum
1/8 tsp salt
1 cup butter room temperature
2/3 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla
ROLLING - sweet rice flour or tapioca starch
DECORATIONS – icing sugar, melted chocolate or candy sprinkles
In a large bowl whisk together dry ingredients.
In an electric mixer beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add egg yolk and vanilla, mix until combined.
On low speed gradually add the dry mixture just until combined. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and shape into a ball. Divide the dough in half onto 2 pieces of waxed paper. Flatten each one into a disk. Cover with the waxed paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350F and prepare baking sheets.
Gently roll out dough sprinkling with sweet rice flour or tapioca starch as needed. Cover the dough with waxed paper or a flexible baking mat and flip it over. Sprinkle with flour as needed. Gently peel off the paper and sprinkle a bit of flour on the other side of the dough. Finish rolling to the desired thickness flipping a few times if needed.
Cut out cookies and transfer to baking sheets.
Gather remaining pieces of dough from both the original dough balls and shape into a disk. Refrigerate for 10 minutes or so and roll out again. Cut cookies and transfer to baking sheet. Refrigerate unbaked cookies if they are waiting for space in the oven.
Bake cookies in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until just turning golden on the edges.
Allow to cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack. Cool completely before decorating.
Okay, maybe this is more appropriate in the spring, but it was like 50 degrees in Syracuse today, so it feels right. Roasted chicken with potatoes and leeks! For the record, I think leeks are the most underrated vegetable of all time. I used to be a little intimidated by them because they take a little more prep work than onions or scallions, but they're such a good savory sweet and roasting them in chicken fat makes for a super rich flavor. @a___armani got a dollop of lemon dill yogurt dressing on his, and I got... lactose intolerance. Womp womp. But this chicken is so tender and juicy that I couldn't even miss it. It's one of my favorite @nytfood recipes (Melissa Clark is my food crush forever) and, yeah, it's gluten-free. I'll post the recipe in the comments!
(On a side note, I've got to practice my food photography. I promise I'll figure out the right angle to snap chicken thighs from next time 😳)
Monday lunches must always be this simple! I’ve kept these turkey meatballs frozen and it’s the easiest thing to pull out and serve when you’re in a rush. And adding zoodles into the mix is always amazing ☺️ 1 egg
1 pounds ground turkey
2/3 cup gluten free panko
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 t dried oregano
2 t dried basil
1/2 t pepper
1 large onion sweet onion, sliced
two 28-ounce cans crushed tomatoes
Mix everything together, except onions and tomatoes. Roll into small balls. Pan fry until brown on all edges. Simmer in tomatoes for 2-3 hours on medium heat in pan or high heat in crockpot.
I totally copied the @whole30 feed's idea, BUT, seeing that I only have 9 days left is SO motivating!! I. Can. Do. It.!!! // I seriously can't thank you guys enough for your encouragement and messages over the weekend when I was sick and not sure if I would keep up my #januarywhole30 . I was SO close to stopping, but seeing these nine little postit notes is bringing me some major sunshine on this gloomy, rainy Monday. (Confession: @applegate hotdogs and @tessemaes ketchup were the foods that first sounded good 🙄)
Winterse lunch vandaag: drie bonenstoofpotje met quinoa. Het stoofpotje bevat lima-, cannellini- en rode kindeybonen 🍲❄️ Bij de quinoa van Bosto vind ik het handig dat het kookbuiltjes zijn i.p.v. losse quinoa!
