The July 2010 Daring Cooks’ Challenge was hosted by Margie of More Please and Natashya of Living in the Kitchen with Puppies. They chose to challenge Daring Cooks to make their own nut butter from scratch, and use the nut butter in a recipe. Their sources include Better with Nut Butter by Cooking Light Magazine, Asian Noodles by Nina Simonds, and Food Network online.
I challenged myself to making a mixed almond/cashew nut butter and then used it in a recipe for Chicken with Curried Tomato Almond Sauce. Yummy!
Upside: Turns out I can do this 'cooking thing'
Downside: Mr. Fine says that I make better Indian food than him and am responsible for it from now on. Ooch.
Here's how it all went down:
|Ingredients lined up and ready to go (watermelon for dessert)|
|Without a food processor, the coffee grinder provided a sweet alternative!|
|Cookin' up the onions, garam masala, and such|
Served with some naan from the store, the meal was delicious and definitely a keeper for
Enjoy the kitchen!
