I stumbled upon another helpful website today - Foodieview. It's a great site where you can put in the name of a dish or the ingredients you have on hand or a kind of cuisine or a chef or... you get the idea. It's immensely helpful for the ingredient search. Allrecipes has this feature, but only for its site - Foodieview searches all over the web. I'm currently trying to empty my pantry of its contents, and so I've been using this feature quite a bit to find recipes that I can make with what I have on hand.
I'm also frustrated with myself - we had our first cooking club last night, and I completely forgot to take pictures for the blog! It's a surprise as far as what everyone is making, so you have no idea what you're going to get. We're currently working through the Jr. League of Birmingham's Tables of Content, and I think it's going to be a blast! Last night we had Hot Feta Cheese & Artichoke Dip (p 54), Edamame Salad (p 100), Grandmother's Texas Barbecued Brisket (p 184), Cheesy Beer Bread (p 130), Artichoke Broccoli Casserole (p 252), Butternut Squash with Apples and Bourbon (p 271), and Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting (p 296). It was delicious! We have a Tex-Mex theme for next month - so excited!
