I found a new cooking blog through Erin that I am absolutely in love with!! I tried three recipes of hers last week and they were all fabulous.
Berry Risotto Oatmeal. Creamy and delicious!!
Buttermilk cookies. I love to work with buttermilk and her description grabbed me when she mentioned the subtle lemon flavor provided by the lemon zest. These were light as air! I thought this was a really cool recipe. It's kind of like a recipe for cake batter, because you add the buttermilk and the flour mixture alternately, beginning and ending with the flour. (Just like any good cake recipe. :)
Macadamia Nut-Crusted Chicken with Mango Salsa.
This was AMAZING!! It calls for an entire bottle of macadamia nuts. I just ground them up in my food processor. I went to grab my bread crumbs and they were the Italian style we buy for schnitzel, seasoned with thyme and parsley. I didn't think they would work for this particular recipe. I just took out six slices of regular rice bread, placed them on a cookie sheet and baked them at a really low temperature for about 10-15 minutes until they dried out. Then I pulverized them in the food processor. It worked really nicely. I served this with Rebecca's Sticky Rice with Mangoes. DELISH!
