Ever made a hollandaise? Or the perfect scrambled eggs? (Modernist Cuisine suggests two whole eggs and one egg yolk) Then you’ve been left with extra egg whites… I found myself in this very predicament this week. For some reason I had a container FULL of egg whites in my fridge.
In my normal trip to the grocery store today, I was pleased to see “Sea Beans”. I discovered these salty seaweed snacks a few months ago and have been enjoying them regularly since. I can’t always find them, so I almost always buy them when they’re available.
Today, I decided to pair them with mushrooms for a “Surf & Turf” salad.
Continuing the surf and turf theme: Veal and Shrimp. Both were on sale at the store… want eat better? Buy what’s on sale… it’s usually in season, delicious, and inexpensive to boot!
Yeah, I said it… Surf & Turf-Dessert. No, I didn’t make Salmon Ice Cream a la Iron Chef America, but this one was hard! Again, I started with a sale item: strawberries. They looked very ripe and were a safe starting point for dessert, the tough part was the “Surf” component.
Welcome to the ALL NEW EatDrinkEXPERIENCE.com! I’ve moved from my little old wordpress blog to a real, self hosted website! I promise this will be the last URL change:) It’s been a CRAZY week for me, let me get you caught up on what’s been going on.
Fiesta! Fiesta! And what’s a party without great food? So today, you get a two-fer… not one, but TWO recipes in one post.
Black Mole Drunken Chicken Enchiladas and Black Bean Soup (also with drunken chicken). Delicious, deep, dark layered with flavors. Just enough heat to warm your mouth but not make you sweat, complimented by the complex flavor-gasam that is Black Mole!
