I once saw a cooking show where an old French woman in Provence made the most amazing homemade aioli using just five ingredients (garlic, lemon, salt, egg yolk, and olive oil) and a mortar and pestle. What she was doing looked so effortless and old-school. And it looked so delicious when she was done. I knew someday I'd have to try it, to see if it actually was that effortless and delicious.
I love cooking in summer. All I have to do is throw something on the grill, add a simple marinade (or not) and whatever I cook, typically ends up tasting good. And for entertaining, it's such an effortless and casual way to go. Plus, I like that it usually gets messy, which I think just adds to the fun. I always make sure I have plenty of napkins available.
Charred smoky flavors make my mouth water. To me, there's nothing better than the smell of grilled food -- from steaks to hamburgers to shrimp to chicken to veggetables... and even fruit. That's why I loved compiling this collection of grilled dishes from Foodie.
We were asked by Kraft to add our spin to one of their spring dessert recipes. So here's our take on their Luscious Lemon Poke Cake. Instead of "poking" the cake with holes to get the Jell-O flavor inside, we decided to create a cupcake with an actual Jell-O filling surprise inside! I can't wait to serve these to guests to see their reaction!
