Husby + I have been intrigued by the cookbook Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentine Way by Francis Mallmann. What we wouldn’t give to have a large backyard to build a fire pit in + grill a whole pig, or half a cow. One of the recipes from this week was taken from this book + even without the backyard grilling pit, it turned out excellent. I highly recommend this book!
On to the recipes:
Pork Tenderloin with Burnt Brown Sugar, Orange Confit, + Thyme via Seven Fires
Root Beer Float Cookies via Six Sisters’ Stuff
Perfect French Toast via Food Network
Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treats via Gimme Some Oven!
I love to cook + bake… a lot. Especially while husby is deployed, I do more baking so I can send him care packages. Here is a roundup of a few of my favorites as of late:
Spiced Cider Whoopie Pies w/ Cinnamon Cream Cheese Filling via A Beautiful Mess
Asiago-Garlic-Herb Bread via Draft Magazine — this recipe calls for spent beer grains, which I saved after husby’s last brew session!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel “Rice Krispie” Treats via Food Coma – I don’t personally like chocolate, but this was a big hit with the boys overseas
Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies via Food Network Magazine
Apple Pie Pop-Tarts via A Beautiful Mess – I cut mine into hedgehogs… why not!
I hope you try some of these recipes! They are all well worth the kitchen time and delicious.
