Recipe Review: Brown Butter Brownies from Handle the Heat

Recipe Review: Cacio e Pepe from Joshua Weissman

The original recipe is from Joshua Weissman's new book, but this Australian site has written it out for you! My husband absolutely loves cacio e pepe (and he's lactose intolerant, so go figure). He orders it at most of the Italian restaurants we go to (not the super-fancy Italian places, just like, our local lunch … Continue reading Recipe Review: Cacio e Pepe from Joshua Weissman

Recipe Review: Chocolate Chip Scones by King Arthur

Original Recipe can be found HERE. I got a scone pan for Christmas, and the scone pan came with a blueberry scone mix (from King Arthur, of course). It was delicious, and we used it for breakfast within three days of me getting the pan. And then we wanted scones again. I decided to just … Continue reading Recipe Review: Chocolate Chip Scones by King Arthur

Recipe Review: Tandoori Chix from Sorted Food

Similar recipe located here. This is actually from one of the Sorted cookbooks (CBA2C2), and it's slightly different than the recipe that's available on their site. The major difference is that the recipe in the cookbook uses skewers to cook the chicken under the broiler for about 20ish minutes until they're cooked through. Ingredients: 1 … Continue reading Recipe Review: Tandoori Chix from Sorted Food

Recipe Review: Oreo Cheesecake from Handle the Heat

Original Recipe from Handle the Heat I got a springform pan for my wedding last year, and I hadn't had a chance to use it yet, so my brilliant plan was to make a cheesecake for myself and my husband, without realizing just how big a ten-inch springform pan is. Note: if you're going to … Continue reading Recipe Review: Oreo Cheesecake from Handle the Heat

Recipe Review: Best Chocolate Cupcakes from Handle the Heat

I went to visit my friend for her birthday back in March, and decided I wanted to take her something fancy (since we hadn't seen each other since my wedding in November), and I didn't want to make a cake (I'm not great at cake), but figured that cupcakes would be amazing since they're smaller, … Continue reading Recipe Review: Best Chocolate Cupcakes from Handle the Heat

Recipe Review: Holiday Tortellini Soup from Taste of Home

Yes, we're back in the giant Taste of Home cookbook this week to talk about another favorite of ours: Holiday Tortellini Soup. I think this is the one that we've made the most changes to: by not adding in one of the major listed ingredients. What We Changed: I've never liked sausage-like meats in my … Continue reading Recipe Review: Holiday Tortellini Soup from Taste of Home
