Around the Web

by Nealey on November 1, 2011

Happy Halloween, gang! It’s been a minute since I did a recipe roundup, so I’ve got lots of yummy links to share! Sometimes it’s hard to keep track of all of the amazing content out there on the internet, but I’m having fun using Pinterest to try and wrangle it all.

Football Sandwiches, winner of Saveur Magazine's Home Cook Challenge

For the most exciting news first, Dixie Caviar’s Football Sandwiches won Saveur Magazine’s Home Cook Challenge. These tasty sliders are famous around my parts; I’m so excited they are finally getting the national attention they deserve! Be sure to bring them to your next tailgate to guarantee confessions of love and undying devotion.

Here’s my latest at The Kitchn

pumpkin spiced krispie treats

I developed these Pumpkin Spiced Krispie Treats as a last minute Halloween snack, but the addition of warm and toasty spices make them perfect for any occasion all autumn long.

Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup

I may have saved my best Taiwanese recipe for last! This Beef Noodle Soup is pure global comfort food. The Asian Pickled Cabbage is pretty tasty, too

Apple Cinnamon Toaster Strudel

Recently it was “autumn fruit” week at The Kitchn, so I celebrated with my favorite fall flavor – Apples! For breakfast, try my homemade Apple-Cinnamon Toaster Strudels, which in my personal opinion are better than the real thing.

Baked Apple Dumplings

For dessert, try my spin on Baked Apple Dumplings.

Pastitsio (Greek Baked Pasta)

Need a soothing pasta dish to feed a crowd? This Pastitsio a.k.a. Greek Pasta Bake should do the trick.

Glazed Turnips

I love fall vegetables, but for some reason turnips don’t seem to get a lot of love. These Glazed Turnips will impress even the pickiest eaters.

Here’s my latest at Cooking Channel

Bacon and Corn Jalapeno Poppers

I’ve amped up traditional Jalapeno Poppers by adding corn AND bacon. Try them baked or fried.

And elsewhere around the web

You all know my love for deep-frying. These potato rings with homemade buttermilk ranch just got added to my bucket list. (At Spoon Fork Bacon)

One of my favorite kitchen hobbies is making “processed” ingredients from scratch. I can’t wait to try this homemade chocolate syrup. (At Brave Tart)

Strawberry cake rocks, but all the recipes available online start with boxed mix or food coloring, This version promises a delicious cake without the toxic additions. Yummy! (At Look I Made That!)

Chicken fried steak with cream gravy. Enough said. (At Use Real Butter)

Every girl needs a perfect vanilla cake. I made this a few weeks ago paired with a chocolate malted buttercream and it was perfection. (At Sweetapolita)

I’m a big fan of both the book and movie The Help. My aunt recently made Minnie’s chocolate pie, which was fabulous. I want to try the fried chicken, as well. (At Food & Wine)

I’ve been contemplating starting a cookbook club for the ladies in my life. It seems I’m not the only one. (At Everyday Food and Tea and Cookies)

This is a great point from Marcella Hazan about why fresh isn’t always better than canned. I completely agree. (At Educated Palate)

I can spend my whole life trying for these garlic-chopping skills (at New York Times)

I’ve never actually tasted chicken tikka masala but this post makes it look pretty damn good. (At Tasty Kitchen)

One can only hope to have a love like theirs. Swoon. (At Snippet & Ink)

Those little sandwiches look tasty, and what’s not to love about sandwiches you can assemble the night before!

Congrats on winning the Saveur contest! That’s terribly exciting!

Wow, these all look incredible! Congrats on winning the Saveur contest! So exciting! And I just love all your pieces for the Kitchn. Can’t wait to go through and pin a bunch of these recipes (I’m likewise obsessed with Pinterest)

Congratulations on your win! I’ll definitely be trying your football sandwiches…maybe this weekend for Alabama & LSU :) Those bacon and corn jalapeno poppers would also make my day!


Ally Garner November 3, 2011 at 4:08 pm

I’ve made your football sandwiches for a tailgate before and they were wonderful! Can’t wait to try those jalapeno poppers – I love the addition of corn. And that pastitsio is next on my list of dishes to try as well. Can’t wait to peruse through some of these other recipes & Foodie blogs. Thanks so much for sharing!
