Mini Sweet Potato Casserole Nests

Mini Sweet Potato Casserole Nests | Passion for Cooking | Scoop.it
Not every Thanksgiving dish has to be larger-than-life-sized. Sometimes it's the little things that make the biggest impression. Take sweet potato casserole, for instance. Wouldn't it be better if, instead of an oversized casserole dish full of sweet slop, every person at your table got their own petite package of crispy and caramelized sweet potato, each nest topped with their own roasty toasty melty marshmallow? Sounds pretty awesome to me. The spiralizer makes easy work of this otherwise tedious dish, no peeling, boiling or mashing involved. Even with a 15-20 minute soak (our trick to getting crispy sweet potatoes) this dish easily comes together in under an hour. To make these bite-sized casseroles, simply toss spiralized sweet potato with an egg and flour mixture, and arrange in muffin cups. The cups bake up crisp on the edges and creamy in the center, with a perfectly toasted marshmallow to top it all off. While this recipe is a twist on the classic sweet potato casserole

Bourbon Chocolate Sugar Cookies

Bourbon Chocolate Sugar Cookies | Passion for Cooking | Scoop.it
Rich and chewy double chocolate sugar cookies spiked with bourbon and rolled in bourbon-infused raw sugar for a satisfying crunchy finish. The result is a brownie-like chocolate cookie with a beautifully crinkly top that'll knock your socks off! At this point, I've baked bourbon into bundt cakes and brownies, bourbon balls and caramel sauce... it's about time it made its way into some cookies. This is one of those recipes that exceeded my expectations on the first try. I wanted a soft, chewy chocolate sugar cookie, and boy did these deliver. And the beautifully crackly top? Well, that was an unexpected bonus. I incorporated the bourbon in the dough itself as well as in the bourbon-infused sugar in which the cookies are rolled. To make bourbon-infused sugar, combine raw turbinado sugar with a few teaspoons of bourbon in a mason jar, and then shake the dickens out of it until the sugar is evenly moistened with fragrant Kentucky gold. Even with such a small amount of bourbon, the sugar

Pickle Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Pickle Grilled Cheese Sandwiches | Passion for Cooking | Scoop.it
If you thought grilled cheese couldn't get any better... try adding pickles. Golden toasty bread, gooey cheddar cheese and sweet and salty bread and butter pickles combine to make the ultimate grilled cheese sandwich. The classic grilled cheese gets a flavorful update with the addition of tangy bread and butter pickles. The pop of vinegary sweetness is the perfect compliment to the rich, melty cheddar cheese and golden toasted bread. I love me a good grilled cheese. There were few things that pleased me more than a classic grilled cheese sandwich, with toasted white bread and American cheese (yes, I was one of those picky kids who survived on starchy beige food for most of my childhood years). The *only* concession I ever made as far as additions was a bit of sliced avocado, and only then at Boogie's restaurant in my hometown (paired with a cookies 'n cream milkshake, well, it was pretty much my idea of heaven). As an adult, my tastes have matured a bit, preferring quality aged

Peach, Goat Cheese & Balsamic Pizza

Peach, Goat Cheese & Balsamic Pizza | Passion for Cooking | Scoop.it
Fruit, on a pizza? It might sound weird, but the sweet-and-savory combination here is surprisingly delicious. With a drizzle of balsamic glaze and a sprinkle of coarse salt and pepper, it's perhaps the perfect pizza for summer. It might sound like a strange combination, but, if you think about it, tomatoes are actually fruits so why not treat them as such? And if one fruit goes well with cheese (goat cheese, in this case), it seems logical that others would too: peaches in particular. They're not going to last forever, so make the most advantage of the tree-ripened peaches while you still can! So I realized after testing this recipe a few times that we had made something very similar years ago. The main difference between that pizza and this one is that the peaches were cooked. Here, I've opted to preserve the bright freshness of the ripe peaches by placing them on the pizza after it comes out of the oven. This version also has tomato sauce, which makes it an actual pizza in Taylor's

Cherry Lambic Beer Milkshakes

Cherry Lambic Beer Milkshakes | Passion for Cooking | Scoop.it
I bought these cherries with the intention of making a Cherry Garcia inspired milkshake, with chunks of fresh sweet cherries and flecks of chocolate chips. But Taylor was eying my cherries, determined to get in on the #MilkshakeWeek action, and even joked that he was going to hack the blog and post his own milkshake recipe on Saturday. When I heard his idea, though, I was sold, and decided that his contribution to Milkshake Week should be part of the official roster. Inspired by his favorite sorbet at Jeni's, these Cherry Lambic milkshakes are so much more than just cherry. The lambic imparts a unique flavor and depth to these milkshakes that you can't quite put a finger on unless you know what's gone into them. It's cherry, but so much more. And that's due entirely to the lambic. Even if you are not a beer lover (which I am most definitely not), you will find this milkshake appealing. A lambic is a belgian-style sour beer, fermented with wild yeast, aged in Sherry barrels, and

Mango Thumbprints with Spicy Hibiscus Sugar

Mango Thumbprints with Spicy Hibiscus Sugar | Passion for Cooking | Scoop.it
Tender, buttery shortbread cookies filled with a dollop of tangy mango jam and a sprinkle of hibiscus-cayenne sugar. Inspired by the mangos-on-a-stick you often see served in tropical resorts, carved into delicate flower shapes and sprinkled with lime juice, salt and cayenne pepper. It's an unexpected combination, sure, but the sweet-meets-spicy elevates the intense flavor of the fruit to an entirely different level. So if you don't have a tropical beach vacation on the horizon, these cookies are quite possibly the next best thing. This recipe is a variation on similar shortbread thumbprint cookie recipes I've made before, proving once and again that shortbread is perhaps the most versatile vehicle for just about any flavor you can imagine. Homemade fruit jam? Check. Lemon poppyseed? Yes, please (the recipe's in our book if you're curious). Dulce de leche? Double check. Chocolate ganache? oh heck yes (and gingerbread spiced, to boot!)

Chilaquiles (Breakfast Nachos)

Chilaquiles (Breakfast Nachos) | Passion for Cooking | Scoop.it
Traditional chilaquiles feature fried tortillas in a spicy ranchero sauce. We like ours extra crunchy and topped with scrambled eggs, two kinds of cheese, sour cream, fresh radish and cilantro. Most often thought of as a breakfast dish, we like to think chilaquiles can be served any time of day and customized with whatever toppings your tastebuds like best. You can use jarred enchilada sauce if you like, but our homemade version is easy and flavor-packed. But are they chilaquiles, or are they nachos? Traditional chilaquiles are a Mexican breakfast dish born out of necessity: to use up leftover tortillas from the night before. Normally the tortillas are fried until crisp and then cooked in a spicy sauce until no longer crisp. I personally dislike soggy tortilla chips, which is why our version has noticeably less sauce than most so the chips retain their crunch. If you're a stickler for tradition and refuse to call these true chilaquiles, then breakfast nachos it is! Noted and

Matcha Mint Ice Cream Pie

Matcha Mint Ice Cream Pie | Passion for Cooking | Scoop.it
Matcha mint ice cream pie, anyone? Featuring homemade fresh mint ice cream with a hint of matcha for color and flavor, frozen in a sweet and salty cookie crust with a hidden layer of fudge sauce. The fresh mint flavor of this ice cream pie is what makes it truly unique, and so much better than the jarring, mouthwashy mint flavor that comes from mint extract. Once you've tried fresh mint ice cream you'll never be able to eat anything else! Matcha & mint. Mint & matcha. They just sound good together. But they taste even better together. The idea to add matcha started with a desire for a green mint without food coloring. What better natural green color is there? But in the end, the matcha does so much more than that, adding another layer of flavor to the bright, fresh mint. The easiest way to make ice cream more impressive? Put it in a pie crust. I mean, a heaping scoop of fresh mint ice cream would would be lovely and all, but when you get a crisp triangular slice of ice cream in a

The Michelangelo (A Milkshake Masterpiece)

The Michelangelo (A Milkshake Masterpiece) | Passion for Cooking | Scoop.it
This milkshake, and its name, was inspired by a uniquely memorable cup of gelato I had in Italy back in 2011. I swear, that trip (our belated-honeymoon) has provided more inspiration for this blog than anything else; I feel like I've recreated (or tried to recreate) just about every delectable morsel we enjoyed there. And this gelato is no exception. The gelato from La Sorbetteria in Bologna was by far the most remarkable gelato we had the entire trip (and believe me, we ate a lot of gelato, so that's saying something.) Dubbed Creme de Michelangelo, it was a true masterpiece, with a base of creamy (possibly chocolate? I can't remember) almond ice cream and bits of candied almond praline mixed in. Needless to say, it made an impression on me. And I figured recreating it in milkshake form was the next logical step. How can you go wrong, really, with a vanilla ice cream base, a hearty dose of marzipan, and sweet caramelized chunks of almond praline? It's not perfectly smooth, rather
