Steak & Cheese Popover Pancake With Crispy Fried Onion Strings

Steak & Cheese Popover Pancake With Crispy Onions, www.goodfoodgourmet.comI had been craving a steak and cheese sandwich all day, and could not wait to get home to prepare one for dinner.

I had recently come across a recipe for a popover pancake on an adorable little blog called Tongue In Cheek, and I had made a mental note to give this recipe a try. I loved the idea of this recipe because you could create a quick dessert that was comforting and delicious. The blog showed how to make the sweet version, but I wanted to see if this would also work for a savory version. The huge well that forms in the center of the pancake as it is baking would be perfect to fill with just about any delicious savory ingredient that you could think of.

Wonton Lasagna,

What do you do when you love the taste of fresh pasta but don’t have the time to make it? Well, many have resorted to using prepared wonton skins to make things like ravioli, so why would you not be able to use large eggroll sheets to make lasagna? Had it ever been done before? […]

Semi Homemade Falafel

Semi Homemade Falafel,

As I get older, I find myself drawn to memories of the past– foods, people and surroundings that evoked a certain comfort and familiarity. My family worked hard to put food on the table and a roof over our head, and after all of the bills were paid, there was little left over for much […]

An equally delicious but lesser known Greek dessert is something called Revani (pronounced as written, re-va-ni)– I have also seen this spelled ravani. On the rare occasion that I find it at […]
