Margaritas Congeladas de Danilo, (Dan’s Frozen Margaritas) uses a homemade sour mix made from freshly squeezed lemon and lime juice. A really good tequila is important, but I think it’s the Cointreau that kicks this recipe into “world’s best” league. A great blender will whip this into a fabulous frozen cocktail with minimal effort.
It’s fall, and I’m thinking of apples. How about a pork tenderloin with a cider reduction? Along side it, white asparagus, and a potato/celery-root/cauliflower mash. For dessert, apple crisp. Now that’s dinner!
The recipe for this raspberry rum shrub cocktail goes back to colonial times. It’s made from fresh fruit, ginger ale, and, uh … vinegar – but don’t let that get to you. It’s an adventure in a Collins glass. Finally! A better answer to “Bring me a shrubbery!”
Yuh-huh, another lasagna, but this one’s for you, Trump supporters: it’s white. This original-recipe Spinach-Herb Lasagna is a white lasagna, layered with a thyme-infused bechamel, plus loads of ricotta, parmesan, and mozzerella cheeses. And surprise: bacon! It’s delicious fresh, but also reheats and freezes well.
This is a review of Lidia Bastianich’s “Italian-American Lasagna.” It’s loaded with meat sauce, mozzerella, and ricotta. It’s a fantastic recipe. It also freezes and reheats beautifully: so have some now and have some months from now. You’ll get a lot of delicious mileage out of this.
Parmesan and ricotta cheeses combine to create this savory cheesecake. Truffle oil and pesto put it over the top. You’re friends will think you’re freaking amazing – which is cool, because you are.
