Football Appetizers: Hoagie Dip

hoagie_dip_8

Are you ready for some football? Good, cuz I’m not. To be honest, I know nothing about football. I only watch one game a year, and sadly since Janet Jackson decided to flash a stadium full of people and several million all age viewers via cable, I can’t even say it’s for the commercials. (Come on! They have not been nearly as amusing as they used to be.) But on that one cold day at some point in 2012, I’ll be into football. I’ll pick a team based on little knowledge of the players, who else is in the room, […]

In a pinch appetizer: Caprese Sticks

caprese_skewers4

Remember those chain emails that asked you a billion questions so your friends could get to know you better? Yeah, after the 900th time I had to answer that my favorite color was red, I gave up. Filing those emails in spam every time I got one and begged my friends to stop. We were in junior high school, I’m sure that had something to do with why these were so fun for a while. In the blogging world, I see similar things spread like wildfire and often don’t participate, haunted by the memory of those emails. But I have […]

Pesto Sticks and Carapelli Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Giveaway

pesto_stick16

I’ve been on a bit of a pesto kick lately. Not sure where it came from or why, but I can’t seem to get enough of the fresh green sauce. Olive oil on the other hand – I don’t know much about. Handsome and I know we need to experiment with a few brands to find one we enjoy dipping our bread into but we really haven’t been looking for a new olive oil. However, I was really excited when Carapelli asked me to sample their olive oil. Knowing nothing about the differences between olive oils, I am not sure […]

Redemption with Fried Pot Stickers

Things may look all peachy keen when you come to visit Pass the Sushi but my kitchen is like everyone else and some days things just don’t work out. Those days are always when we have company. Of course, witnesses. And always when I’m serving pot stickers. Go figure. When I make these for Handsome and I, they are perfect. Wonderful little steamed pockets of ginger spiced pork. When my parents are headed over and I need to put something together in a pinch – they all froze together and wont come apart. When Handsome’s cousin is coming over and […]

Hoisin Pork and Asian Slaw Egg Rolls

eggroll8

Sometimes it’s all about a good concept. I had seen several times before the idea of a BBQ egg roll and lately the idea of a hoisin pork had been running through my head. Hoisin pork teamed up with an Asian slaw. All wrapped up in an egg roll wrapper and fried. Yeah, that idea has been tempting my pallet for a few weeks on the to do list. Hoisin Pork Asian Slaw Egg Rolls A little mix of me and some Emeril, Guy, and google. Hoisin Pork Ingredients: For the Pork: 1/2 cup hoisin sauce 1/4 cup soy sauce […]

Panko Mozzarella Sticks

mozzerella sticks3

I saw this recipe a while ago while cruising food sites and knew I had to try it. I love mozzarella sticks – especially the horrible ones they serve at the bowling ally. The problem was, when to make it? Talking myself into actually making the deep fried cheesy delight was a hard one. It was totally worth it though.   Add this to the favorites tab because your going to love it.   Panko Mozzarella Sticks Adapted from http://une-deuxsenses.blogspot.com Ingredients: 16 pieces string cheese, removed from wrappers 1/2 cup flour 2 eggs 3 tbs milk 2 cups panko bread […]

I should have known better….

Oh, did I mention now my parents are coming tot he BFs house with me? Sure why not (this would be when its […]
