Food: Baked, Wonton-Wrapped, Mozzarella Sticks

September 24th, 2012 Comments off

I am always looking for a way of getting that bad, bad, (yet good) taste in a good, better, healthier package. While these are certainly not something you would want eat every day, it is a lighter, baked, version of traditional deep-fried mozzarella sticks. I have made some baked mozzarella sticks in the past, which were OK, but I think these wonton wrappers would give them a nice crunch and percent the cheese from oozing everywhere, too. Definitely something I am going to try.

Learn a couple of simple tools for online debunking and learn why people sometimes “lie” on the Internet.

Food: Polenta-Pistachio Cake

September 15th, 2012 Comments off

This looks to be such a leap above the typical box cake. I will be making this as soon as I can. I love cornmeal and I love pistachio and I love the idea of combining them into — what I consider — a fairly rustic cake. I could see the Sicilian relatives making a cake like this. Simple, unadorned, but wonderful.
