Brunch on the Bayou

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
I had a Champagne Bunch party in my home, and did what no sensible person would ever do: made three things for the first time, without "test-driving" the recipes. And also refused to actually measure anything. Har-har! One of the three was this dish. I used a full 1lb. roll of sage breakfast sausage, added some cayenne to the eggs, topped the sausage layer with sliced red bell pepper (GENIUS!) and didn't measure the cheese...I just sprinkled the amount I thought seemed reasonable. (Also, I used cheddar instead of Monterey Jack.)I suspect it was less than the allotted amount. My bread was day-old Ciabatta, also not measured, and also maybe less than the suggested amount. Whatever, I just sprinkled bits about until it seemed like enough. It was DELICIOUS. Top-notch. And I am SO picky about good-quality food! My guests complimented my cooking, and my husband took the left-overs to work the next day for a holiday pitch-in, and came home empty-handed. FIVE STARS. Would go with six if it were allowed. :)

Lemon Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2013
OMG, this is soooo yummy! I like my pumpkin/banana/zucchini breads to be super-moist and not too "bread-y," so I used 2 small zucchini (about 1/2 cup more than the recipe calls for) and substituted unsweetened applesauce for half the oil...I didn't measure the lemon zest either, just zested one whole lemon. YIKES! Utterly, sinfully, irresistably delicious! THANK YOU for sharing this recipe; I will never need to search for another! :)

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
I just ate the whole bunch of kale as it came out of the oven and no one else even got to try them! (on my way to buy more kale in a minute...) I used several of the various tips together and got great results on the first try: ~oven at 340 degrees ~line the pan with foil ~blot each leaf dry ~remove thick stems ~turn curly side down, like a tent ~mist with olive oil (I didn't have a Misto, so I used a cheap water spray bottle, like a hairstylist would use. Came out kind of spurt-y, but it worked.) ~sprinkle LIGHTLY with sea salt, garlic salt, Old Bay Seasoning... ~bake 5 minutes and then rotate pan 180 degrees, bake 5 minutes more (no need to drain on paper towels, as there was so little oil to begin with.) Light and crisp, like little green clouds, only yummy and loaded with goodness! I also tried it with purple kale, thinking my kids would find that entertaining...worked okay, but not as well as the green. Purple kale is less curly, so it lies down on the cookie sheet more and doesn't get as crisp (it seems air flow it crucial.) Also, it loses some of its lovely color in the baking process, so the chips come out more brown than purple. Not tragic, but not outstanding, either.
