Succulent Seared Scallops Recipe in a Citrus Sauce | AmazingSeafoodRecipes

Succulent Seared Scallops Recipe in a Citrus Sauce | AmazingSeafoodRecipes | American Food | Scoop.it
This recipe makes a delicious appetizer, or you could double the quantities and serve it as an entrée with rice or with pan-fried potatoes.
Christine Szalay-Kudra's insight:

These lovely scallops are great to serve as an appetizer because they please the palate without being too filling or rich. The delicate sauce has a really good flavor – a nice combination of sweet and tart. Scallops are not hard to cook although many home cooks avoid them because they are unsure exactly how to cook scallops for a perfect result. It could not be easier. Once your oil is hot, add the scallops and cook them on one side until golden brown, then flip them over and do the other side the same way. They only take a few minutes.

Christine Szalay-Kudra's insight:

The sky is the limit when it comes to hamburger side dishes, and you might wish to stick to a classic side dish such as potato salad, fries or coleslaw, or you might prefer to try something new such as homemade onion rings or a 3 bean salad recipe.

 

Hamburgers can be served without any side dish, and it is perfectly possible to make a standalone burger, especially if it includes extras like cheese, bacon, salad and relish. Such a hamburger would certainly be enough for a meal on its own, but offering side dishes adds to the whole hamburger experience, so it is worth finding out which other side dishes you can prepare to offer alongside the hamburgers for a complete meal.

A Guide to Pizza Stones and Pizza Pans | Amazing Italian Recipes

A Guide to Pizza Stones and Pizza Pans | Amazing Italian Recipes | American Food | Scoop.it
Pizza is fun and easy to make but it can be confusing to see all these new products around, such as pizza pans in different materials and pizza stones. Gone are the days when we put a pizza on a plain tray in the oven and removed it when it was done. Now we have a choice of pizza pans and pizza stones but how exactly do these make our pizzas better? How to Choose a Pizza Pan Different kinds of pizza are suited to different kinds of pizza pans so there is no best pan for making homemade pizza because it depends on the pizza. If you usually make thin and crispy pizzas, for example, a perforated pizza pan might be best because the holes in the base of the pan allow the air to penetrate, which crisps the crust for you. On the other hand, if you like deep-dish pizzas, deep dish pizza pans are great. A square pan is for making Sicilian style pizza. Look at the material the pan is made from. If you decide to get a perforated pan, choose a non-stick metal coating. For Sicilian or Chicago style
Christine Szalay-Kudra's insight:

A pizza stone is optional and you can make pizza without one. However, if you are really into great pizza which has a crispy crust, a pizza stone might become a must-have in your kitchen. Compare a pizza cooked in the oven on a pizza pack or oven rack with one which has baked to perfection on a pizza stone, and the difference will be clear.

Discover how to use a pizza stone and where to buy one. You will soon find you want to make pizza more often because the pizza stone gives you pizza which is better than any you have ever made before. Try the pizza stone test on your family. Cook your first pizza stone pizza and serve it, without telling them you used a pizza stone. They will definitely remark on the extra-crispy crust!

Baked Tilapia with Panko Breadcrumbs | AmazingSeafoodRecipes | American Food | Scoop.it
Out of all the easy fish recipes you can choose from, oven baked fish recipes are some of the most delicious. Not only does baking mean less fat...
Christine Szalay-Kudra's insight:

Tilapia is a very popular fish right now, the reason being it is so much more affordable than cod but just as tasty. Cod has a unique flavor and big flakes which people love. Tilapia has a delicious flavor of its own and medium flakes, which are also appealing. To transform tilapia filets into a marvelous meal, all you have to do is give them a panko breadcrumb coating and fry or bake them until they are crispy and delicious.

Serve this treat with mashed potatoes or French fries, as well as one or two portions of vegetables, and you will have an incredibly satisfying dinner. Have you tried tilapia yet? It always goes down well in this household, and it is healthy as well.

Where Did Hamburgers Come From | Recipe Publishing Network | American Food | Scoop.it
Ground meat has been enjoyed since ancient Egyptian times, often in the form of pressed meat patties, although hamburgers have different names...
Christine Szalay-Kudra's insight:

Hamburgers are one of the best-known examples of American food ever, and around the world they are enjoyed on a daily basis. If you ask people where hamburgers come from, many will reply "the United States of course" but just because hamburgers are considered an American food staple, that does not mean they originated there.

If you fancy learning more about your favorite comfort food, you might be interested to learn how hamburgers originated and when the first hamburgers appeared. Trace their history, from the 13th century when the Mongol army would tenderize meat patties under their saddles, into a later era when the hamburger's fame spread into Russia and finally Europe. Hamburgers did not reach the United States until the 18th century, so you might like to discover how they finally reached our shores.

Today there are so many varieties of hamburgers to choose from and you can also make vegetarian burgers. There are even healthy options. Have a look at this intriguing hamburger history and you might be surprised how far this mouthwatering treat dates back.

Homemade Pizza Cookers - Homemade Pizza Makers Reviews | Christine's Product Reviews | American Food | Scoop.it
Although you will not get quite the same results from homemade pizza cookers as you will from a brick oven, this makes healthier pizzas than what...
Christine Szalay-Kudra's insight:

Have you ever seen a homemade pizza cooker at work? These machines are fantastic, and anyone who enjoys eating pizza on a regular basis will love them. A pizza cooker will cook your pizza to perfection and you can make your own crust or use a readymade one. Pop the pizza on the pizza cooker plate and it will slowly rotate, rather like an LP on a record player, while the overheat heat cooks it.

You can watch the pizza turn round and round and actually see the cheese begin to melt and the toppings start turning golden brown. The base crisps up too. Homemade pizza cookers make fun gifts but they are also a great addition to any kitchen, especially if you love making your own pizza recipes.

Baking a pizza in the oven is also possible but this takes much longer, and it also means your oven cannot be used for baking oven-fries, garlic bread or another pizza side dish, so take a look at the best pizza cookers and you might just decide you want one.

Clam Chowder Wars | Amazing Soup Recipes | American Food | Scoop.it
The best recipes for chowder are those that involve the careful blending of fresh ingredients, with the right amounts of seasonings.
Christine Szalay-Kudra's insight:

Everyone has their own opinion as to which is the best recipe for clam chowder, with many people favoring the rich, creamy New England style, and others preferring the tomato-enriched Manhattan style or another type altogether. The key ingredient in clam chowder though is of course the clams, and everything else is added to complement the seafood content.

 

Other popular ingredients in clam chowder recipes include diced potato and onions, bacon, salt pork, and more. I love the creaminess of New England clam chowder but I am always happy to try new things in the kitchen and work on new recipes, so experimenting with clam chowder is a pleasure for me, and my lucky family gets to enjoy the results.

Some of the Best Hamburger Recipes | Recipe Publishing Network

Some of the Best Hamburger Recipes | Recipe Publishing Network | American Food | Scoop.it
The whole world loves hamburgers but they are especially dear to American hearts. There are so many ways to make a hamburger and so many variations.
Christine Szalay-Kudra's insight:

Blue cheese is fantastic with burgers, in my opinion, because it adds a wonderful salty touch which complements the meat so well. Blue cheese is one of those ingredients people seem to either love or hate. This recipe is nice because the blue cheese is added to the patties rather than being crumbled over the finished burgers.

Blue cheese does not slice or melt neatly like mozzarella or cheddar, so adding it to the patty mixture is perhaps the best way to incorporate it in a hamburger recipe.

I would serve these with some crispy bacon on top as well as the salad, and I might even add a slice of avocado too, to make this a gourmet burger. This is one of the best grilling recipes and I bet it tastes phenomenal.
