Lucky us. Right before Christmas a new olive oil tasting bar and store opened up in downtown Littleton. EVOO Marketplace is located right next door to Savory Spice Shop and is packed full of shiny stainless steel vats of clever and exotic infused oils and vinegars. They offer an aged balsamic that I could chug from the bottle. It’s omg good. I’m going to write more about it soon, but for now wanted to share a little something I dreamed up after I grabbed a bottle of their chipotle infused olive oil.
Remember my little baking adventure? The one where I made Jalapeno, cheddar, chive biscuits while following along with Joy the Baker Cookbook challenge? My floured-up kitchen mess and the time it took to restore it back to it’s pristine condition is quite clear in my memory.
Anyway, that recipe made quite a large batch, so the remainder of these muffins have been in the freezer. I decided to thaw them out and turn them into a cheesy, creamy, sausage-y southwestern style strata.
It happened on Easter. We were invited over to Greg and Cauleen’s house for brunch where we were presented with a buffet table full of beautiful breakfast casseroles. Needless to say, I’ve been in a strata, quiche-y, cheesy kind of mood ever since. Let’s take a look at this potato quiche.
Carrots, what a great side dish for any meal. This recipe, which simmers sliced carrots in chicken broth, sugar and butter until a shiny glaze appears and then tossed with red grape halves and chunks of walnuts…Let’s just say there was a mummering at the table that this was a better side dish than the companion Herbed Mashed Potatoes. Can you imagine???
Herbed Mashed Potatoes, my side dish for Roasted Lamb with Garlic sherry and thyme au jus..
A very special meal for any occasion. For us, this was Easter Dinner. Roasted Leg of Lamb with braised garlic, sherry and thyme au jus, Herbed Mashed Potatoes and Glazed Carrots. Let’s take a look.
I prepared this meal years ago for a mid-winter dinner party. I’ve been wanting to recreate it ever since I started this blog and nothing like Easter to inspire an elegant and delicious meal featuring leg of lamb.
This is a quick, easy, and delicious dish for using leftover pork roast.
We’ve just returned from a trip back to Kansas to move my mom out of her assisted living apartment and into the nursing home. An exhausting whirlwind trip which left us mentally and physically worn down.
