I had some challah leftover from the challah and cherry panini, I posted this about two weeks ago and hopefully you checked it out and even more so, you actually made one for yourself. It’s certainly not difficult and completely worth your time and energy. After making the challah and cherry panini I had plenty bread, cherries and goat cheese leftover. I’m sure you’ve heard me go on and on about waste and bad management. I think it’s a crime to just throw away food and be wasteful or just lazy.
Here is the roasted pineapple recipe. You can make this and store it in the fridge for the week. Finely chop it and use it in cakes or what not. Put it on toast in the morning or on a bagel with some cream cheese…Yummy! It’s great stuff, I keep this in the fridge myself. It really livens up a lot of dishes, including savory. Try it with some chicken and rice or on a pizza. It’s awesome!!
Here is the cider caramel again. This time really getting the attention it deserves. This whole dessert came together while I was working at Mapuyampay in Chile. The pecan cake, which actually Ruth used walnuts, and the date ice cream I saw in a cookbook in Chile as well.
Strawberry shortcake though delicious does not tempt me on a dessert menu. I had a friend once tell me never to order strawberry shortcake off a menu. They said it is a way restaurants get rid of fruit, especially fruit that is going bad. I myself don’t believe this, however, I personally wouldn’t order a strawberry shortcake at a restaurant.
I don’t believe I’ve ever met a crisp I didn’t like. I grew up in Ohio so a crisp is pretty much at every BBQ, funeral, game night or intervention. Hell it’s Ohio, a crisp is a reason just to get together. This is why I love crisp and I love Ohio.
