Sweet Potato Fries

This fries will blow your mind!

Here, David used a neat trick. You noticed? Yes, he did use whiskey for in the tempura batter! But we would like to discuss the cooking process 🙂

First, David fried the potatoes for a bit unbattered. Then, he took the batter and applied it on the potato pieces. Finally, David fried the battered potatoes. Yummy!

In his professional kitchen, David used a simple pan for frying. We do not recommend it for a regular home use since it produces too much undesirable odor and oil splashes that may cause harm to you or your relatives around you.

To cook perfect fries, we suggest to use a proper deep fryer. Read these Cool Daddy deep fryer reviews to find out which deep fryer suits your needs the best!

Enjoy your fries!

Christmas Meal: Prancer’s Peppers

Prepping for the holidays!

Linda from Oroville, California is making a recipe that humans and reindeer alike will enjoy.

Prancer’s Peppers got their name after a reindeer in a wonderful holiday movie Prancer. In this movie, a farm girl named Jessica takes care of a wounded reindeer that she thinks is one of Santa’s. Touching story.

Low Carb Club Sandwich

Knowing the obsession of low card diet of some of our readers (looking at you, Lance!), we were very happy to see this submission with a low card club sandwich recipe.

Jen Mattson from Austin, TX makes the bread entirely out of cheese! How amazing is that!

To make her cheese bread, Jen used a silpat, a silicone baking mat that can be found in any kitchen appliances store. You can also by a pan +silicone mat together. For example, Artisan Metal Works make great mat & pan sets that have a commercial grade quality promising a long life.

For making this kind of “bread,” it is important to take hard cheeses like Parmesan or Parmigiano, Grana Padano, Pecorino Romano because they grate well and provide the proper texture to keep the sandwich in place. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, you can use an aged Cheddar or an aged Gouda.

Tell us in the comments about your cheese experiments!

 

Spicy Mexican Potato Soup

Soup always hits the spot!

In this recipe, Amanda used munster cheese. Munster cheese is a strong tasting, soft cheese named after a French region Munster where the first rounds of cheese were produced.

A tip: If the soup turns out to be too spicy for you, you can always follow Amanda’s advice and add some lime juice in the soup. Also, you may want to keep these jalapeno seeds out of your dish 😉

Bonne appetit!

Mile-High Quesadilla

Stack ’em high and open-wide! This is another video from Amanda who has recently shown us how to make a delicious cocktail.

Quesadillas came into our cuisine from the central and southern regions of Mexico. Mexican quesadillas are usually cooked on a comal, smooth, flat griddle. As a variation, the quesadillas can be deep fried in oil. The fried ones are prepared more like a pastry with the filling made of vegetables and cheese.

Amanda showed us a more traditional variation cooked in oven.

Bonne appetit!
