Hummingbird Cake

Thursday, July 11, 2019, 07:34 PM

Mereditg nade the Hummingbird Cake from Souther Living (LOCAL). However, that recipe's frosting calls for an insane amount of powdered sugar so instead she used the recipe from Add a Pinch (LOCAL)

Eggplant Marinara with Grilled Chicken

Tuesday, July 09, 2019, 07:43 PM

Meredith made Eggplant Marinara Sauce with only a few minor changes including:

and I flattened then grilled chicken breasts. I did it with Montery Chicken Seasoning. I tried something different for coating the chicken. I used a brush with a small bowl of oil (so that I could double dip) to coat the chicken before adding the seasoning. I still oiled the grates (not that it mattered, it burns off immediatly) but this also helped keep things from sticking.

It all came out pretty good. Not too difficult of a meal; very healthy; and tasty.

Tofu with Chraimeh Sauce

Monday, July 08, 2019, 08:23 PM

We made Tofu and haricots verts (green beans) with chraimeh sauce from Ottolenghi Simple.

Meredith had prepped the spices a few days earlier but then we made the rest for dinner. We doubled the recipe and also steamed the green beans (~7 min)

While we basically otherwise followed the recipe, I think the pan was too hot when I added the spices. They started to smoke right away. We ended up adding a bit of water to them to try to cool it back down. The kitchen filled with cough-inducing smoke.

We ended up mixing it all with the tofu rather than afterwards. It made a good bit of food.

We mostly liked it. It was very spicy and burned to make it but the flavor was pretty good. Next time, Meredith wants to try it with smoked (but not hot) paprika to (a) change the flavor a bit and (b) tone down the heat.

While it is nice (and easier) to use tofu, I think this would be really good with chicken too.

Birthday Layer Cake

Sunday, July 07, 2019, 08:19 PM

Meredith made (or is still making) Birthday Layer Cake by Momofuku Milk Bar. Since the edges of the sheet pan were more puffy, she carefully layered it to be level as you can see in the side-view picture. She also took it out of the ring and didn't use acetate but it seemed to work well!

This is a work in progress so it will be updated later.

Deviled Eggs

Southern Deviled Eggs

Next time, do more like 14-15 minutes steaming.The 12ish for this was good for just eating but the yolks could have used a bit more for deviled eggs

Played around with different tips. Tip 199 was the winner!

Amba Chicken

Tuesday, July 02, 2019, 07:58 PM

I made amba chicken similar to the first time. I had about 2.5 lbs of chicken so the pan was a bit more crowded. And I tried to cook the sauce less. I think those tow (especially the latter) made it not as good. Not bad, but it was missing the crunchy bits from the sauce.

Meredith made caprese with burratta

Super Easy Coconut Shrimp

Monday, July 01, 2019, 07:55 PM

Super simple meal (considered not posting it) using a 5-Ingredient Trader Joes reciep from A Cup of Jo (LOCAL). It was pretty easy but we didn't love it. The coconut shrimp was good but as good as we would have hoped.
