I made your recipe for Cream Cheese and Chive Biscuits ahead of time and froze them to make Christmas breakfast easier. Instead of cutting them in squares, I used a larger circle cutter. Then Christmas morning, I cooked up an egg mixture in round silicone rings of the same size as the biscuits. The ‘McBiscuits’ were a big hit! Those stuck in the kitchen starting preparation of the main dinner meal wrapped their biscuit in waxed paper and appreciated their portability. Thanks again for such a great recipe. I look forward to more recipes coming soon.
Beautiful photos, Tim!
Love the pics! It finally stopped raining here in No CA, and the sun has graced us with its presence. I made a homemade cornbread dressing/stuffing for Christmas Eve. Hadn’t tried it before and it turned out marvelously. It included homemade cornbread, freshly made sausage, mushrooms, water chestnuts,carrots, and so forth. Quite tasty. =)
Jen- so glad the mondel bread was a success!
Renate- That sounds like a delicious Christmas breakfast, nice work!
Skye- That cornbread dressing sounds so good. I made stuffing for the first time this year, and found it really satisfying. Will definitely be trying new recipes in the future.
Tim, absolutely gorgeous photos. If you ever find yourself in NYC, check out Wave Hill Gardens…and if you make a dinner here, sign me up!
I’ve been making: beets with blood oranges, arugula and macadamia nuts (Five Leaves Brooklyn); spinach and sheep’s milk ricotta gnocchi with asiago (Convivium Osteria); mushroom barley soup…and the best of comfort sweet, Belgian Sugar Waffles (Gaufres de Liege), which I will post on Sunday. Happy 2011 and keep up the great work!
Such great news! my friend’s “save the date” is actually the weekend before, so I won’t be able to fly out to chicago for this but what a great idea! And another vote for an nyc event. :)
Lately I’ve been eating a lot of mel clark’s kale salad, fennel and apple salad, and the lamb stew with a base of shallots from arabesque served 10 people with leftovers.
Speaking of the recipe you posted before this, panna cotta – my sister and I just made mario batali/amanda hesser’s panna cotta (from cooking for mr. latte). My whole family loved it and it wasn’t as low in fat as your version but simple, great. Thanks for all your recipes this year, and your great taste. Happy new year!
