Killed by Dessert, Part 2

Hopefully a break over the weekend was sufficient time to recover from all that dessert. I only had about 20 minutes before embarking on the second half of the 12 course dessert feast so imagine how I felt. Here's part 1 in case you need a refresher on where we left off. After six desserts, we got our sixth savory course (the one that we thought was missing from the cocktail hour). Intermezzo Spaghetti pomodoro Brooks Headley Paired with Budweiser (in an 8 ounce can) Spaghetti pomodoro - when made well - is one of my favorite dishes. So I was really excited for this course, especially because it was coming from Brooks Headley, the pastry chef at Del Posto, and also because I needed something savory after six courses of dessert. Not to mention the whimsical presentation and beverage pairing

ROLLINSFORD Chocolate lovers could not have found a better place to spend their time Saturday afternoon than the Public Library, which held one of its biggest fundraising events of the year the second annual chocolate tasting. From brownie bites and truffles to toffee crunch and chocolate-dipped strawberries, chocolate treats of all kinds, donated by local businesses or baked by members of the community, decorated the tables of the Public Library for two hours Saturday, as visitors were free to sample the treats and vote for their favorite dessert. "I've been eating some really awesome homemade chocolate," said 11-year-old Rollinsford resident Jackie Kovalcin. She said that like many in attendance at the chocolate tasting, she enjoyed the Shaker Pond chocolate ice cream being offere

sweet pleasure : plaisir sucr: ptes de fruits

apple, raspberry and pear ptes de fruits Lately I have been busy with life and work, so unfortunately I havent had much time to blog. I did however make time to research and make one of my favourite confections, ptes de fruits (fruit jellies). My post this week is my entry for two different blogging events. First, Canadian Blogging By Post #2 hosted by the lovely and wonderful Jasmine of Confessions of a Cardamom Addict. The theme for this second installment of CBBP is Our Seasons Bounty, which is where I got the inspiration for making ptes de fruits in the first place. I started with apples because they are in season, inexpensive and contain lots of pectin. The other blogging event I am participating in is Sugar High Friday #24, hosted by Jeanne of Cook Sister!.

Cooking Books: Charlotte au Chocolate

Charlotte au Chocolate, sounds so fancy doesn't it? And it kind of is. If you start from the beginning, by making your own ladyfingers, it's not the simplest of recipes. But R gave me my very own charlotte mold for Valentine's day last year (and by gave me, I mean I ordered it on Amazon and then announced that I loved his thoughtful v-day gift) and as a reward I made a chocolate charlotte. So when we had some friends over for dinner the other week, and I asked R for his input as to dessert, he immediately asked for chocolate charlotte. And I couldn't dissuade him, which I kind of wanted to do. Not because this dessert isn't delicious (It is. I thought R was going to lose it in the silent and completely non-dramatic way he tends to lose it when I suggested I make something else.), but becau

Watermelon Chiffon Pie Recipe -

This feather-light chiffon pie has the subtle but distinct flavor of watermelon; as well it should, since there are nearly three cups of watermelon juice in the filling. That juice is thickened with gelatin, and then blended with whipped cream and beaten egg whites to give the filling that airy chiffon texture we all love. The pie makes a luscious summer dessert for any gathering of friends or family. It looks cool garnished with watermelon balls, but dont garnish until the last moment to prevent juice buildup on the plates. This recipe is best made at the height of watermelon season. Cooking time is fridge time.

Delightful Dessert: Chocolate Raspberry Tarts

I found this recipe on the Food Network site and could not wait to try it. The recipe yields 6 regular muffin size tarts, but I thought that would be too much richness for one person. I ended up making two in the large size so I could put a raspberry in the center like the recipe calls for and then made 12 mini ones as well. Overall, I didn't think they were sweet enough. I wish now that I would have used semi-sweet chocolate instead of bittersweet. Ingredients 1 1/2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs (I used Oreos) 6 tablespoons melted butter 1 recipe Dark Chocolate Truffle mixture, recipe below 6 fresh raspberries, plus extra for serving Mix together the chocolate wafer crumbs and melted butter. Spray the cups of a 6-muffin tins (or mini tins if you choose) with a vegetable spray. Line the cups

Food review: Chapada offers appetizing slices of Brazilian cuisine

So far, the Brazilian steakhouse concept hasnt worked in Wichita, and Ive always been skeptical that it could. The churrascaria of dining style where gauchos serve gut-busting quantities of shaved meat tableside is popular in bigger cities, and its expensive. A night at Fogo De Chao in Kansas City, Mo., or Texas De Brazil in Dallas could easily cost $50 to $75 a person. El Gaucho Steakhouse, the restaurant that operated from late 2007 to early 2009 at 8550 W. 21st St., tried a version of the concept, but it didnt fly. Now, Chapada Chophouse and Churrascaria, a restaurant that entrepreneur Tad Fugate opened in the old Teds Montana Grill space at 2142 N. Tyler last October, is testing whether Wichita is ready for a churrascaria. Id put off visiting the restaurant, m

Zellers: Rosies Italian Grille offers pizza and elegant favorites

Rosies Italian Grille 606 N. McCord Road (419) 866-5007 Open: Mon./Tues. 11:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Wed./Thurs. 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Fri. 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Sat. noon to 11 p.m.; Sun. 4 to 9 p.m. We went to Rosies Italian Grille knowing that it wasnt going to be exactly like the old Rosies restaurants that were scattered about the Toledo area just a few short years ago. Of course, having a restaurant with Rosies in the name and not having pizza served in it would be like Two and a Half Men not having Charlie Sheen in it ridiculous. So, yes, they still serve their great-tasting pizza. They also still have the famous Rosies Hot Mama Bread that at one time was so popular, they sold it in local grocery stores. While
