Another New Find & Cooking Club

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!

I can't wait to look at that site. I was hoping there was something out there like that. My pantry/fridge needs cleaning out! Cooking club was delicious. Thanks again for hosting...we definitely need to take pictures next time!

This cooking club sounds like a LOT of fun! What could be better than cooking, eating and socializing with good friends?

Since your theme is Tex-Mex next month, will you all be trying your hand at homemade tortillas? It's a pretty fun challenge!

I'm a huge fan of homemade tortillas, but I don't think any of the recipes call for them. I have a side dish this time, so I won't be. :) But they're so easy to make and so worth the time - there's just not much better than a warm fresh tortilla. With cheese. I don't even need all the other stuff!

Jennie also made the cheddar beer bread (I think that was the name of it). Wanted to make sure it was mentioned :)

Ahhh... thanks! How did I forget the bread???? That's my favorite thing! :) And I will be making those little biscuits. Very yummy.
