Recipe Round-up

February 1, 2013 , , , ,

It’s taken me way too long to realize what to do with all the recipes I get in my inbox everyday. I can’t possibly make them all and I have never quite figured out how to properly share, without sharing with my hips.

It never dawned on me to just put a weekly recap up here. It’s always the simple things that get you… so here we are! Welcome to the new weekly feature – Recipe Roundup!

I’ll be pulling from whatever pops up in my email, so please enjoy! Also, if you have a source that you think would be fun for me to start receiving, give me a shout in the comments and I’ll be sure to sign up.

January and February are always my least favorite months. They are the deep bowels of winter. The fresh, local veggie situation is rough. And it’s not only too cold to go anywhere (except when you have a rare 60 degree day – hello last Tuesday!) – there is little reason too. But what do you cook when you’re holed up catching up on your week’s Hulu Queue?

PS. Along with the recipes I’ll probably be posting weird random pictures from China. Because…well… why not?


This week, month actually, it’s been kind of fun to see what the chef’s are popping up with to make these winter months a little more fun. I think, there’s been a bigger focus on Super Bowl food, which is ok by me.

Check out Food52’s recipe for homemade Nacho Cheese sauce. Am I the only one who thought that you could only achieve this with Velveeta?

California Ranch Olive Oil gave me a lot of great recipes this week but the one that takes the cake is their Olive Oil Walnut Brownies. Check out that recipe here.

I keep going back to Tasting Table’s feature on Mortedella Bolognese with Pistachio Gremolata from Texan chefs Terrence Gallivan and Seth Siegel-Gardner out of The Pass and Provisions in Houston. The pistachio addition is weird and oddly mesmerizing. I’m into it.
