Favorite Foods


Once again, I've been a bad blogger. I intended to blog the Chicken Sesame Noodles and even took a picture of it, but was just too lazy to actually blog it. Last weekend when I made the cream cheese chicken, I took a picture of that too, with the intent to blog it since my original didn't have a picture. Nope, didn't get to that either.

Wednesday I was extremely tired and didn't bother to cook dinner. Last night I make the pork and pears and didn't find it that appealing (overall it had a good taste, the recipe just needed some modifications to the cooking time, quantities, etc.) so I didn't bother to blog that either.

Tonight I AM going to blog the Shrimp w/ Pasta. I promise. Since it is a very slow day at work and I've already planned out my menu for the week (I'll have that up by Sunday), I figured we could discuss favorite foods.

  • Popcorn. You already know this, but I have a love affair with popcorn. I could eat it daily. 
  • Cream cheese. I love most cheeses equally, but I would have absolutely no problem with eating a tub of cream cheese by itself. 
  • Corn on the cob. Nothing says Hello Summer! like corn on the cob. I'm pretty sure we ate it twice a week last summer when it was in season.
  • Strawberries. Another sign of spring and summer. I just love strawberries cut up with sugar.
  • Garlic. Part of me wonders if I'm not somehow secretly Italian considering the love I have for garlic. I love cooking with it. Hell, I even like opening the jar just to smell it. If it were socially acceptable and created, I would probably wear garlic perfume. 
  • Pepperjack cheese. On a club cracker with a grape. One of the best snacks ever created. 
  • Pretzels. Utz pretzels will always have a soft spot in my heart but I am willing to try other brands. I've been known to eat and entire bag of pretzels in two days. 
  • Sushi. :sigh: California rolls, Philly rolls, Shrimp tempura, spicy rolls....drool... For someone who is not a big fan of fish, I love sushi. I could eat it once a week and never complain. It has been quite some time since we've had sushi. I wonder if I can talk Tom into it for his birthday. 
  • Steamed Crabs. I'm from Maryland, I can't help it. There's nothing like going to Mr. Bill's Terrace and getting some gigantic steamed crabs stuffed with meat and covered in Old Bay. 
  • Risotto. The first time I had risotto was back when Tom's brother's restaurant was a fine dining establishment and not a fun bar with just as good food. My first risotto attempt was quite disastrous, but hey, we all learn. Mushroom risotto is currently my favorite, but thats because I have yet to make the lobster brown butter risotto recipe I found. I'm sure that will completely throw mushroom risotto to the back of the line. 
  • Caramel-flavored coffee. In the winter, a large Dunkin Donuts coffee with caramel swirl and skim milk. In the summer, a small iced coffee with caramel swirl and skim milk. I heart caramel in coffee. Its way better than hazelnut, french vanilla, or any of that other crap. 
  • Jalapenos, habaneros, chipotles. I love spicy foods. I can't have a sandwich from Subway without hots on it. Or a cheese steak. 
  • Chicken cheese steak. Very few places have the ability to make this correctly. Shredded chicken, melted American cheese, caramelized/fried onions, lettuce, tomato, light mayo and hots on a sub roll. That is the ONLY way I'll eat it.
  • Mango Habanero Chicken Sandwich. I had this from Domino's the other week and I instantly fell in love. It was spicy, sweet, and overall UNBELIEVABLE. I'll let you in on a secret, I'm going to make it next week!! 
  • Steak. My favorite steak meal is a medium filet with a loaded (sour cream, butter, cheese, bacon, chives, salt and pepper) baked potato and a garden (romaine, carrots, lettuce, tomato, cucumber) salad with croutons, Salad Supreme seasoning, bacon bits and Hidden Valley Ranch dressing. YUMM!
  • Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing. No one makes ranch like Hidden Valley. I'm pretty sure I could almost drink the bottle. I dip pizza crust and baby carrots in it. I pour it on salads, use it in dips. The saddest part, Tom hates it so I can't make ranch burgers. :-(
  • Crab cakes. Another MD thing. Do you want to know the best recipe? Honestly, just follow the directions on the side of the Old Bay can. 
  • Crab Dip. I make a mean crab dip. I don't know if I'll ever give up that recipe. I created it all on my own and haven't shared it with anyone. Its just that amazing. I've had people tell me that it rivals the crab dip served at local MD seafood restaurants.
  • Chicken Noodle Soup. There's just something comforting, warming and great about some homemade chicken noodle. It makes me instantly happy. 
I'm sure there are more foods that I would consider my favorites, but after writing this, now I'm starving and need to go find lunch!

So tell me, what are your favorite foods?
