I love to try out new recipes no matter if they are ones I created in my head, ones I found on-line or in a cookbook. Over the years, I have tried recipes from a lot of chefs, one who seems to match my cooking style is Rachael Ray. As a mother, you've got to appreciate the concept of a 30 Minute Meal! Rachael Ray often says that her recipes are just methods. She encourages her viewers to take her recipes and make them their own. I "Lori-ize" almost everything I cook, tayloring the recipe to my families taste. I decided to combine these two ideas and what you see here is the result. Each week I'll create a meal based on a recipe and let you know what we thought. I will give you the original recipe and let you know how I "Lori-ized" it. Hope you enjoy Tasty Tuesday!
Blake's birthday party is this Saturday, so preparations are already in full swing. I am making the ice cream to go with his cake. I decided that I didn't want to use my usual chocolate ice cream recipe because it makes a LOT of ice cream. I decided to try turning my vanilla ice cream recipe into chocolate. I used Emeril Lagasse's Old Time Vanilla Ice Cream recipe
ok... not my best picture, but I didn't want to dish it up at this point.
