Not because they're jamie-proof, or panhype-proof, but i always preferred thin slices of pork loin chop, escalope etc. I know those are less juicy. But they are tastier. Now because German butchers are used to sell thick pieces of meat i always had problems to make myself understandable about what i wanted. I said 'really thin', 'about 3 millimeter' etc.. and got looks as answer with plenty'o questionmarks ... till i found that saying 'for making escalopes Italian style' usually gave them the right idea lol I always knew why i love Italian kitchen

More recently i have given up on pork and buy chicken breasts most of the time. Then i take a sharp knife and cut them across 2 times, giving me 3 thin chicken breasts. Perfect minute chicken breasts

Jamie-

Could you sub bread crumbs for the flour? I don't bake much so I don't often have flour on hand but I always have breadcrumbs!

Jamie's photos look straight out of "Eating Well" magazine. Yum! And this thread has sent me on a quest to find Jersey tomatos, I'm sure I can find them around here.

my breakfast: kashi honey oat waffles with peanut butter and pineapple. I need protein in the morning otherwise I crash and turn into a cranky platypus. One issue though--kashi waffles are expensive. Does anyone have a good recipe for whole wheat waffles? My boyfriend has a waffle iron, I figure it would be cheaper per serving to make them at home and just freeze them.

Pan...oooh, you have given me an idea, I had not thought to tr that with chicken breasts. Sometimes I cut it in cubes, but I would like to expiriment with thinner pieces.

Half-full: I think the flour is only there for binding, so I am not sure why bread crumbs wouldn't work. These are almost pancake/latke like and yours would probably have a different texture...might be a tasty expiriment though!

MissT: I haven't tried those waffles - are they any good? The pineapple has me salivating over here.

Turn the heat on medium and stir it around a bit until it gets cooked through. I like to leave it on a bit so it gets a little color to it. I also add some red pepper flakes and it makes it sweet and spicy. Very simple, very quick. The key is to not add too much of anything, because the corn is sooo good right now.

There you go. You are in business .
I love fried corn...on the cob as well. I just got hip to fried corn on the cob last week and I love it.

Default Carbonara v1.b (actually Amatriciana lol)

The recipe i'm using is kinda 'around' since the 70s and it's titled 'Carbonara'. Now i did a little research and learned that the original Carbonara just consists of pancetta (speck) and eggs while the version i was making has tomatoes (instead of eggs) and actually is called Amatriciana. Both have their origins in the north of Roma, hence the confusion maybe. Both are SUPER-easy to make, here are links to recipes with great explanations (Italian site in English language).
Amatriciana - that's the way i'm making my 'Carbonara', but i'm adding a few dashes of balsamico vinegar
Carbonara - should be worth a try as well


Carbonara-pot.jpg
Yes, you're right. I'm making a big pot of it and will store 6 portions or so in the freezer

i'm having my Amatriciana usually just with Italian bread. Or French bread

Does anyone have a good recipe for whole wheat waffles? My boyfriend has a waffle iron, I figure it would be cheaper per serving to make them at home and just freeze them.

**************************************************

This is a Martha Stewart recipe, very nice!

Oat and Whole Wheat Waffles with Mango Sauce

Using nonfat buttermilk and egg whites will eliminate a substantial amount of the fat usually found in this classic breakfast fare.


Ingredients
Serves 6.

3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons cake flour, (not self-rising)
3 tablespoons instant nonfat dry milk
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 large whole egg
2 large egg whites
2 1/4 cups nonfat buttermilk
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Mango Sauce
1 1/2 pints assorted fresh fruit, such as raspberries, blueberries, boysenberries, and peaches
Vegetable-oil cooking spray
Directions

Preheat a waffle iron. Place oats in the bowl of a food processor, and process until coarsely ground, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a medium bowl, and whisk in whole-wheat flour, cake flour, dry milk, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.

In another medium bowl, whisk together egg, egg whites, and buttermilk. Pour into the dry ingredients, add melted butter, and whisk together until thoroughly combined.

Spray waffle iron with cooking spray. Quickly pour about 1 1/2 cups batter onto center of grid. Use a rubber spatula to spread the batter evenly out to the edges. Bake waffles until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a warm oven. Repeat until all batter is used.

Cut waffles into squares; serve two per person topped with mango sauce and fruit.

************************************************** *******

Whole Grain Waffles

INGREDIENTS:
2 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cups skim milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup flax seed meal
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

DIRECTIONS:

1. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, applesauce, and vanilla. Beat in whole wheat pastry flour, flax seed meal, wheat germ, all-purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt until batter is smooth.
2. Preheat a waffle iron, and coat with cooking spray. Pour batter into waffle iron in batches, and cook until crisp and golden brown.


************************************

Another thing to try is to add some protein powder to your batter...one scoop of flour for one scoop of flour

Eggo waffles and pancakes are now available whole wheat and non trans fat. The kids at my preschool LOVE them.

After seeing lovely melons on the fridge thread, I had to have some. So a couple of nights ago I just had some melon, prosciutto and danish blue cheese for dinner. It was ambrosia!

Tonight was tandoori chicken kebabs. I wasn't happy with the taste of them, they seemed salty to me although I hadn't put any salt in the marinade. However my son loved them, so he had my three! I also made Kimberleigh's couscous salad, slightly adapted for the ingredients I had to hand, and it is deelish! So I just had extra couscous!

I need to work on styling a little bit. It looks a little bland just lying there.
I usually buy the extra thin pork steaks too, I like to slice them up for chinese dishes. I LOVE the look of these courgette fritters, I am definitely going to try them very soon, they look so simple but tasty, thankyou for posting the recipe!

I didn't use the green tagliatelle for any particular reason, except maybe that they were looking at me, telling Take me Italians might even say that green tagliatelle are outright wrong with that sauce. I have no idea So using Spaghetti instead would be the proper choice.

You know...I don't like red sauce very much...but for some reason today...that pan of it looks so comforting and homey...I am actually craving pasta.

Jamie, The kashi honey oat waffles are quite good. I don't like eggo, I find them to be way too sweet. These are slightly sweetned and full of nutrients.

More recent photos:

Carrot cake. My boyfriend kept taking tastes of it. I wish he bought his own damn slice. It was extremely moist and had plenty of frosting.





The second is a cheeseburger with fries from a Manhattan mini pub chain-ette called Blarney Stone. The place is a real dive, but the food is decent and cheap. The burger was cooked to order (medium rare!) and the fries were freshly fried with the skins intact. They did scream out for salt though. I had a Stella Artois with it. The goblet makes it classy.

Carrot cake. My boyfriend kept taking tastes of it. I wish he bought his own damn slice. It was extremely moist and had plenty of frosting.





The second is a cheeseburger with fries from a Manhattan mini pub chain-ette called Blarney Stone. The place is a real dive, but the food is decent and cheap. The burger was cooked to order (medium rare!) and the fries were freshly fried with the skins intact. They did scream out for salt though. I had a Stella Artois with it. The goblet makes it classy.
2 killer pics. Yowzers!

Toodles, I definitely want to share a New York meal with you sometime. Just so you know. I hope that cheesecake will be involved in some way.

A trip to the really really good local bakery today. Yeah, my eyes are bigger than my stomach.

My roomie, Nancy got this:


It's a checkerboard cake. You can see we each cut a piece from it...



Here's her piece.


Here's what I got (this is really scary because I don't eat a lot when it comes to bakery goodies. So, anyone want some pastry??)



A "peach flan" which turned out to be 1/2 apple and 1/2 peach, and it wasn't really the texture of flan - it was more of a soft, creamy custard, which I liked even better than traditional flan.







Close up - apples on the left, peaches on the right.



Here's the inside.



I also got:




German chocolate cake bar with coconut, nuts, etc. I only ate about 1/3 of this.





Chocolate silk pie with cheesecake and chocolate mousse, etc. YUM. I only ate some of it.


Why is this starting to remind me of a Weight Board post? hehe



And....I got cream puffs. Only ate one so far.




Chocolate chocolate chip, chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies. (These I will save for tomorrow)
