An Improvised and Compromised Béarnaise Sauce

An Improvised and Compromised Béarnaise Sauce I’ve had my fair share of failures. Like the time I cut my finger with a hand blender. Or the time I could’ve killed my husband with pork meatballs and red sauce. And then there was the time I used steak rub instead of pepper. Oh, memories. This post is about the time I tried to make a Béarnaise sauce, but ended up with melted butter instead. Hmmm. I guess when I put it that way it really...

A Last Supper Before Dieting: Bacon Tomato Sauce

A Last Supper Before Dieting: Bacon Tomato Sauce If you are going on a diet in a couple of days and are looking for one last way to indulge, I’ve got the dish for you. It comes in the way of sauce, a bacon and tomato sauce. Everything tastes better with sauce…and bacon. Right? This little gem came to me in November while I was spending a crazy amount of time on the couch waiting for baby. Giada De Laurentiis on the Food Network made it. And...

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Butter

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Butter When I say “butter,” you say “dairy spread.” You say that because that’s what we most often think of when we hear the word butter. We think of that fatty cream that gets churned and churned until it’s a nice yellowy spread perfect for our muffin or roll. But there’s more than one kind of butter. There’s actually dozens. There’s all the different...

A Basic Mornay for Macaroni and Cheese

A Basic Mornay for Macaroni and Cheese Mornay sauce = becahamel sauce with cheese, usually swiss or Gruyere. Mornay sauce = perfect sauce for vegetables or noodles. Morney sauce = the sauce that gives mac ‘n cheese life. We grilled steaks and I didn’t want an ordinary French fry or baked potato. I know, so unlike me. Instead I made a very unhealthy and quite tasty macaroni and cheese composed of elbow noodles, spinach, bacon, and...
