garlic rosemary steak

Happy new year everyone! Thank you for following me on my food adventures. It has been hard finding time to cook these days but it is one of my resolutions to try and find more time to cook, try new recipes, and host more gatherings. For my first post in 2015, I wanted to try a new steak recipe. I usually just season my steak with olive oil, salt & pepper but I wanted to try something different this time. I saw this recipe on Bon Appetit for garlic-rosemary steak and gave it try. This would be perfect for anyone who likes rosemary and garlic- lots of strong flavors here. I think I want try making herb butter next time. Let me know if you have any suggestions! ๐Ÿ™‚ Recipe for garlic-rosemary steak courtesy of: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/garlic-rosemary-steak Ingredients: 3/4 cup plus 7 Tbsp. olive oil, divided 1/4 cup 1-inch pieces rosemary sprigs 1 1/2 pounds hanger or flank steaks, cut into four 6-ounce steaks Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper 6 large garlic cloves, sliced Coarse sea …

tonight’s dinner: steak & soba stir fry

I love steak. I can eat it anytime, anywhere. Tonight, I ate it at home and in a stir fry and it was GOOD. I’ve made something similar before {https://delishthoughts.com/2014/01/31/my-friday-night-dinner/} but this time, I tried a new recipe from Bon Appetit. I didn’t use almonds & carrots because honestly, I had all the other ingredients at home & didn’t want to go to the market. I was lazy & hungry! ๐Ÿ˜› The sauce was so flavorful. And I just realized that I don’t think I ever had steak with noodles but I mean, steak tastes good with anything! ๐Ÿ™‚ Recipe for Steak & Soba Stir Fry courtesy of: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/steak-and-soba-stir-fry Ingredients: 2 tablespoons sliced almonds 8 ounces soba (Japanese-style noodles) or spaghettini Kosher salt 1 tablespoon plus 3 tablespoons vegetable oil t 12 ounces skirt or flank steak Freshly ground black pepper 2 scallions, whites and greens separated, chopped 4 medium garlic cloves, chopped 1 tablespoon grated peeled ginger 2 heads baby bok choy, quartered t 1 medium carrot, peeled, thinly sliced on a diagonal 3 …

toast two ways

I love trying different toppings on toast. It’s not just butter and jam on toast now.. there are so many other things you can put. Here are two different ways from Bon Appetit to make toast more interesting and tasty. The first is savory toast with Greek yogurt, radishes & scallions. I like the freshness and crunch from the radishes & scallions. The second is scandi toast with butter, smoked salmon and cucumbers. Smoked salmon is so good and tastes good on anything. If you’re bored with butter & jam, try these recipes! ๐Ÿ™‚ Recipes for savory toast and scandi toast courtesy of Bon Appetit: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/savory-toast Spread sprouted sourdough or whole wheat toast with Greek yogurt. Top with shaved radishes, sliced scallion, and flaky sea salt. http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/scandi-toast Spread pumpernickel toast with salted butter. Top with smoked fish and cucumber coins.

a perfect meal by the pool

I love long weekends especially when I get time to relax by the pool. It’s the best when you lay out and lounge around, and of course eat delicious food! I wanted to make some kind of sandwich and already had shrimp at home so I decided to make shrimp rolls. This recipe is easy and quick- you can also buy cooked shrimp to save time. I liked how fresh the shrimp tasted with the lemon juice & chives. The rolls along with radishes, pineapple slices & beer made for a wonderful meal by the pool. Happy Labor Day- hope everyone had a great weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚ Recipe for mini shrimp rolls courtesy of: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/mini-shrimp-rolls Ingredients: Kosher salt 1 pound medium shrimp, shelled, deveined 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon mayonnaise 1 small celery stalk, peeled, finely chopped (about 3 tablespoons) 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh chives 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish Freshly ground black pepper 24 mini soft dinner rolls (each about 1 1/2 x 1 1/2-inch; such …

my first time making a galette

I was excited to try making my first galette and found this great recipe from Bon Appetit- a galette with swiss chard & mushrooms. Galettes are so pretty especially ones with fruit (that will be my next challenge). So I took the easy/lazy route and bought dough from the market instead of my own. I’ll try making my own dough someday but why make it when it’s ready for you? ๐Ÿ™‚ This galette was fun to make. It’s like making a pizza and you can be creative with your toppings. It didn’t turn out as pretty as I wanted it to be but it tasted good! It was savory and the herbs added a fresh touch. Can’t wait to make more galettes! ๐Ÿ™‚ Recipe for swiss chard & mushroom galette courtesy of: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/swiss-chard-and-mushroom-galette Ingredients: WHOLE WHEAT DOUGH 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup whole wheat flour 1 teaspoon kosher salt ยพ cup (1ยฝ sticks) chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar GALETTE 1 cup ricotta Kosher salt and freshly ground black …
