I’ve discovered two new (to me) food blogs that I’ve really been digging lately. The first is Ezra Pound Cake, which I was immediately drawn to because of the name. I’ve bookmarked about a million of recipes on there, including this Beer Bread we made about a week ago and didn’t photograph because we were too busy eating it.
Made a Spanish version of pasta carbonara, using chorizo and manchego cheese:
And, because I had a few lonely balls of fresh mozzarella leftover from the last time we made pizza, I decided to give Macheesmo’s homemade fried mozz recipe a shot.
They were a little fiddly to make, and I avoid deep frying as much as possible (I hate the thought of pouring a ton of oil into a pan and then dumping it all out later), so I cut the mozzarella balls in half and fried them in just about 1/4″ of oil.
They turned out fine.
Well, more than fine. Delicious. Easily consumed. Longed after.
Travis and I also made some deep dish pizza for the first time yesterday. We used a recipe that I won’t link to, since the crust turned out kind of odd tasting. Not really tasty. The fillings were fine, and it cooked without any problem, the crust was just weird. I still like making regular pizza better, but I do want to give the deep dish another shot, this time just using our standard pizza crust. I mean, it’s cooked in a cast iron skillet in the oven – surely, using a different crust, it will turn out delicious, right?
