Cooking extravaganza!Posted: November 12, 2012
Thanks to my new addiction to Pinterest, I have a whole new world of recipes to explore. And with the crisp fall weather, I have been inspired to spend some time in the kitchen, creating all kinds of amazing food. Last night the hubby and I made braised short ribs, garlic mash, carrot puree and roasted cabbage. And paired perfectly….a bottle of Barolo – one of my most favorite wines. We topped the evening off with a vanilla bean and salted caramel cheesecake. Enjoy the pictures and if you are interested, I have given you the recipe and/or links below….
I don’t have a recipe for the garlic mash but I use both the yellow and red potatoes – skin on – boiled with garlic cloves (you can also roast garlic and add after if you want). Once the potatoes are cooked, I mash then add butter, marscapone cheese, sour cream, whipping cream – and lots of salt and pepper. And the carrot puree…..carrot and parsnip, or carrot and turnip, boiled together, mashed with whipping cream, butter, salt and pepper. No low-fat here!!
