Daring Cooks

Daring Cooks September 2009|Dosas!


Oh how I love the world wide internets. Even though I’m halfway around the world (and missing home terribly, I’m sure), here I am, posting my September Daring Cooks Challenge! Thank you WordPress and delayed posting feature! It’s August 29 as I write this (so ahead of time for once!) and I’m thrilled to tell you all about the dee-licious Challenge that Debyi at The Healthy Vegan Kitchen gave us for the month of September 2009. “But Kathlyn, isn’t vegan kind of…um, against your religion or something?” That’s a fair question – “untasty” definitely gets my hackles up, but there is a lot of great vegan food (so good you don’t have to tell finicky omnivores about the vegan part!) and that’s exactly what Debyi is doing over there at her blog. If you have food-related issues, or have people you love with food-related issues, be sure to check her stuff out!

Daring Cooks August 2009|Rice with Mushrooms, Cuttlefish and Artichokes

Spanish artichokes and seafood with rice-01

Hey it’s August 15th…which means I’m late posting for Daring Cooks…again! And I’m short on time today, which means this is going to be short and sweet (a lot more delicious than sweet, really), again. I thought summer was supposed to go at a more relaxed pace than the rest of the year…

This month our Daring Cooks host was Olga from Las Cosas de Olga and Olga’s Recipes. She chose a delicious Spanish recipe, Rice with mushrooms, cuttlefish and artichokes by José Andrés. And if you make it, you’re gonna love it.

Daring Cooks June 2009|Pot Stickers!


~This is the twelfth post in a series running through the month of June 2009 in which I attempt to post once a day for the month.~


Ricotta Gnocchi (aka “yum on a fork”)|Daring Cooks Inaugural recipe (and I missed it!)


~This is the fourth post in a series running through the month of June 2009 in which I attempt to post once a day for the month.~

May was the kickoff month for the newest funtime in the kitchen project from the darlings of daring Lis and Ivonne at The Daring Kitchen – The Daring Cooks.  And I missed it!  I kaflooy, looy, dewy blew it.  The post was due mid-May and I was out of town.  Which is really a shame because the challenge was Ricotta Gnocchi and gnocchi is as much of a staple in our diet as the scale will allow.  Generally we make potato gnocchi (tres economical), but this challenge proves that you can make delectable and boilable dumplings out of cheese – yay!
