Modified Tom's Chicken Soup
So we found a recipe called "Tom's Chicken Soup" in one of my cookbooks that looked really good. But, being me, I couldn't just FOLLOW the recipe... So this is my version. It's got Chicken, Fake Bacon, Potatoes, Shallots, Garlic, Chicken Stock, Mushroom Stock, Milk, and "Cream" (reconstituted dry milk at high concentrations...). It was good and hearty. Served with Italian Herb and Cheese biscuits. Yum.
Mini S'mores Bears
Fourth of July. No marshmallows, Hershey's bars, or graham crackers anywhere in the apartment. What's a girl to do? Pull out the chocolate frosting, marshmallow fluff and Teddy Grahams!! Cute and tasty!
Coffee Baked Alaska
This was the one specific food request Dante made for his birthday. And I was only too happy to oblige. This is pound cake and coffee truffle ice cream covered in coffee-flavored meringue, baked for just a couple mins, and drizzled with chocolate sauce and mini chocolate chips.
Red Velvet Pancakes
These were the breakfast part of Dante Birthday celebrations! They have cocoa powder and such in them. Found the recipe online here: http://cookingequipment.about.com/od/breakfastrecipes/r/Red-Velvet-Pancakes-With-Cream-Cheese-Glaze.htm Mine turned out rather PINK instead of red, but... it takes a LOT of food coloring to get them even this red. And I was using paste colors.
I think that's all of the highlights, at least that we have photos of. Hope you enjoyed!
