    Nice looking work, Courtney. Simple recipes, fresh ingredients, good execution = Food Porn!

    Btw, I feel ya on the overcooked broccoli. I love the stuff, but damn there is such a fine line between it being al dente and overdone.

    They both look great but that turnip casserole looks soooo yummy.

    I made a hot and healthy chili tonight that I'm rather happy with. I've learned that you can't go wrong by adding more chili powder than you think you need.

    Depends how hot you like it. Adding a couple extra tbsp and letting it simmer makes it come out nicely.

    Sorry for the blurry pic, but this was my first attempt ever at making rack of lamb. I made it for Christmas dinner, only to find out that most of my family doesn't eat lamb. Out of 17 slices, only 5 were eaten.

    OH NO THAT IS SO WRONG

    I LOVE lamb. Robin, it looks beautiful. I certainly would have enjoyed it. Maybe your family doesn't like rare to med rare meat? But still, that's just rude.




    And Courtney, send me some lime curd!

    Lol. Thanks! I'm glad I also made a beer infused chicken. My family knew I was making lamb. I wish they would have told me earlier that they didn't eat it at all. I would have saved a bit of money.

    None. I only eat chicken as a meat.

    I ended up bringing most of the leftover lamb to my regular pub for the bouncers and bartenders working that night.

    "Very similar to our traditional chicken noodle soup except that it has chicken testicles instead of chicken meat. The soup simply made from testicles and vegetables is cooked in broth until tender. The testicles are creamy on the inside and very soft, similar to tofu but with tight skin like a sausage. Others have compared it to an under cooked egg with a custard consistency."

    I have made this a few times. It is quite good.


    Beef Daube with Wild Mushrooms

    http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/b...wild-mushrooms

    1 cup dried porcini mushrooms (1 ounce)
    1 cup boiling water, plus 2 cups at room temperature
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    3 pounds trimmed beef chuck, cut into 2-inch cubes
    Kosher salt
    4 medium carrots, thinly sliced
    3 medium onions, halved and thinly sliced
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 cups red wine
    3/4 cup tomato paste
    2 bay leaves
    1 thyme sprig or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    Freshly ground pepper

    1. Preheat the oven to 325. In a heatproof bowl, soak the dried porcini in the 1 cup of boiling water until softened, about 20 minutes. Rub the mushrooms together to loosen any grit, then remove them from the water and coarsely chop. Let the soaking liquid stand for 5 minutes to settle, then pour it into a clean bowl, leaving any grit behind.

    2. Heat the olive oil in a medium enameled cast-iron casserole. Add one-third of the meat at a time, season with salt and brown well on all sides over moderate heat, about 6 minutes; transfer to a plate. Repeat with the remaining meat.

    3. Add the carrots and onions to the casserole and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.

    4. Discard any fat in the casserole. Sprinkle the flour over the vegetables and cook until it browns lightly, about 3 minutes. Gradually stir in the wine and the 2 cups of water, scraping up the browned pan juices. Return the meat to the casserole. Add the tomato paste, bay leaves, thyme and the porcini and their soaking liquid. Bring to a boil.

    5. Cover the casserole tightly and bake for 3 hours, or until the cubes of beef are very tender. Discard the bay leaves and the thyme sprig and skim the fat from the sauce. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

    Make Ahead The daube can be refrigerated for up to 2 days. Serve With Boiled potatoes.

    I'm cooking a beef stew in the crock pot as we speak. I don't have a lot of experience with stews. How much liquid should there be in relation to the rest of the stuff? At the moment I have 2cups of onion soup & 1/2 cup of red wine. And the liquid barely peaks out from under the meat and veggies. I figure that will change, but if I wanted to add more what would I add?

    Also at the moment the sauce is not that flavorful. (again I hope that will change as it has 4 hours more to cook). The spices that the recipe called for were parsley, pepper, and salt. What would I add to give it more flavor and how long should I wait before making any of these decisions?

    Sorry, I really don't know what I'm doing.
