What I've Made Lately

The text edition! As I've misplaced my camera battery charger and I've run out of batteries, there has been a sad lack of picture taking in my kitchen. So, I've decided to provide the links to things I've made lately instead of lots of boring wall-of-text posts.

Acorn Squash Quesadillas
From Smitten Kitchen. I added some refried beans and regular jarred salsa rather than homemade. Verdict: delicious.

Skillet Carrots

From Orangette. I made these as a side dish to some perfectly grilled lamb chops and ate them on my balcony with some red wine and a good book. Verdict: extremely tasty.

Stir-fried Celery

From The Wednesday Chef. I put these on some chow mein noodles and managed to choke down half the bowl before I gave up and made dumplings instead. Way too salty, way too spicy. Verdict: skip it.

Artichoke, Asparagus and Mushroom Risotto
From Smitten Kitchen again. I used regular mushrooms and canned artichokes instead of shiitakes and fresh. Verdict: meh. I prefer my asparagus lightly boiled or roasted and crispy, I'm not a big fan of artichoke and the mushrooms turned the rice kinda grey. I ate it all but won't make it again.

French Toast à la Baldini
Two pieces of French toast with peaches and brie sandwiched between. I usually add chives or green onions or sub in frozen mixed berries when I can't find cheap peaches. Topped with Dad's maple syrup, bien sûr. Verdict: amazing, as always.

Pizza with Mushrooms, Onions, Tomatoes, Olives, Bacon, Green Peppers & Anchovies
From my lovely neighbourhood pizza parlour. Because occasionally I am too lazy to make dinner. Verdict: heavenly.
