I have talked before about the evolution of cooking in my life.
I went from loving it, to hating it and now...
I have a newfound love for it, once again.
There's been a lot going on in the kitchen,
and I have not done a "food/cooking" post in a while.
So here we go, if you are hungry,
you have been forewarned.
One morning I decided to make Eggs Benedict with Fried Potatoes.
This took forever, I'm pretty sure we ate it for lunch,
I used every pot in the kitchen and
I don't think I will ever make it again.
The recipe is here, but I really don't recommend it.
It was delicious!!
We ate a lot of BLT'S this summer, the garden was
very generous when it came to tomatoes.
I used up what I thought would be the last of the tomatoes,
on October 1st to make
which the hubs loves and asked for.
All the fresh basil came from the indoor herb garden, this is so easy,
creamy and really good.
I add heavy cream in at the beginning and that is not in the recipe.
This next dish I saw on a cooking show, but could not find the recipe.
They used a whole chicken, I used one split, bone in breast
because it was huge and plenty for both of us.
Thick slices of yukon gold potatoes, seasoned, started on the stovetop,
in olive oil and butter, in an oven proof fry pan.
I think I cooked these for about 10 minutes.
The seasoned chicken is placed on top of the potatoes
and finished in the oven.
The chicken looks like this when it's finished,
and this when it's plated.
That's a big piece of skin, stove top (shame on me),
chicken and potatoes.
This was so good, so easy and I will definitely make this again.
My niece Emily brought me some apples.
A little water in the baking dish, cored apples...
and stuffed with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon...
they were delicious on their own but for the purpose of this picture,
they could have used some ice cream!!
I love fall, I get my cooking juices flowing again!!
