Reviewed maple bacon ice cream

Monday, Jun 9, 2014 on

Made this over the weekend. It has been a horrific day at work, and there were times when I was only able to keep going because I knew this ice cream was waiting for me at home.

"Un-be-lie-va-ble. I would recommend doubling the sauce, however, because there isn't quite enough to "generously" coat the bacon AND baste it later."

"Add edam to cheeses that will work if you can't get taleggio. The sandwich is delicious, and I'm looking forward to experimenting with the red onion marmalade with other dishes. Awesome idea, BB!!!!!!!!""

"Next time I'll double the curd and double the cream--there was way more cake than either. But the flavors made my knees go weak while I was still sitting down!""

But I thought it was "peppered with actual shepherd on top!" ;-)"

"I'd certainly make it again. It's very flavorful and easier than it looks.

As for not liking recipes that add ingredients by the pound, I guess you don't cook a lot of red meat, chicken, turkey, or fish?"

"Pretty good. I might use a little more bourbon next time, because I couldn't really taste it as much as the maple."

Reviewed Brett Fava Beans

Sunday, Feb 6, 2011 on

"I made these just so I could post a review. These are okay - nothing special, but a perfectly serviceable use of fava beans. You really can't go wrong with me if you include Parmesan cheese, so that's always a plus. However, call me a stickler, but there's no real reason to call these Brett Fava Beans aside from the fact that Fava sounds slightly like Favre. Favre is from Mississippi, one of the homes of Cajun cuisine - but there's nothing even remotely Cajun about this dish, and it wouldn't have been hard to include something.

"With the proportions given, the yogurt is really strong; it dominates the flavors instead of blending with them. I'm going to try this again, but maybe cut the yogurt down to a cup and a half or add some brewed coffee to the mix.

Reviewed Pea and Mint Pesto Crostini

Monday, Nov 15, 2010 on Food Network

"I don't remember the exact directions from the episode, but my guess would be this:

Combine the peas, cheese, garlic, mint, salt, and pepper in a food processor or blender and blend until the peas are pureed. Slowly pour in the olive oil while continuing to blend.

Brush the bread with the olive oil and toast, then top with pesto and tomatoes.
