Say It With Carbonara
Hello and welcome to Five week meal, Although actually my thoughts today are with sweets, especially chocolate desserts. It’s sunday Valentine’s Day, And while I have zero plans to cook an elaborate dinner, and may even order takeout, I’ll grab the moment to make some pornographic chocolates. Current Contenders: Chocolate Lava Cake, Double Chocolate Cookies, Chocolate Chocolate Or maybe even one Chocolate Caramel Tart.
But sadly it is not a dessert newspaper. (Unless you want a special dessert version? If so, let me know: [email protected].) This is a newspaper about which you cook before getting sweets.
All but one of the recipes below is very simple, although I think special, too. If you don’t want to do something “romantic”, but they don’t want to love anyone, they are good for weekdays and also work for Valentine’s Day. (Specially spaghetti carbonara. Say “I love you” with carbon.)
And a very happy lunar new year to all! Mouthwatering recipes for the holiday are perfect this way.
Here are five recipes for the week:
1 is Chicken piccata
You can easily make Ali Slagel’s recipe for this Italian-American classic after work as you can cook it for Valentine’s Day before watching “Moonstroke.” Some people don’t like whole lemon slices, with peels and pits – very bitter – so you can either blanch the slices before adding them to the pan, or try using lemon zest instead Huh.
This recipe is adapted from Chef Krrish Yenbaumrong’s Pad Thai with his reverence Night + market Restaurant in Los Angeles. Ali Slagle uses the simple sauce from that recipe – equal parts sugar, fish sauce and vinegar – to boil the shrimp quickly. So delicious, so easy.
