i've also been on a cooking one.
this week, i was all about trying new things.
i made bread from scratch for the first time, as well as dumplings.
the former i will definitely be making lots more of;
the latter, while i enjoyed them, the process was not quite worth it for me.
SUNDAY // buttermilk roast chicken, garlic cheesy bread
& arugula with light ranch dressing
MONDAY // green enchiladas -- i am obsessed with these.
i used leftover chicken from sunday & made my own tomatillo salsa.
the roasted garlic takes it up a notch (the heavy cream doesn't hurt either).
WEDNESDAY // spinach & ricotta dumplings
with shrimp & mushrooms in cream reduction
note :: i used cremini mushrooms & 1 cup more flour in the batter than the recipe calls for.
the measurements in the recipe are in the metric system. let me help you out with that ::
500 g ricotta = just over 1 lb
75 g butter = 6 tbl.. but i probably only used around 3 or 4.
this dumpling recipe made 30+ medium-size dumplings!!
i'd probably cut it in half next time; we still have lots left.
do you have any favorite bread recipes? i'd love for you to share them with me :)
the one i made this weekend was a baguette of sorts,
perfect paired with dinner, but i'd love to try a sandwich bread,
preferably of the whole-grain variety.
