Nostalgia turned into a lovely meal! With everyone making plans for Easter, I remembered Mom making Chicken Waikiki Beach every year and I just had to have it.
I went to a at a BBQ this past weekend and one of the fellas made these absolutely wonderful red velvet cupcakes. They were just perfect – moist, even texture and the frosting was even edible. I’ve never been a big fan of red velvet cake though I’ve always assumed it’s because I’ve only had it from big grocery stores. Always too much sugar in everything especially the frosting. But
I forgot about this photo a few months ago when I made my first recipe with shallots. I remember loving how smoothly and easily the shallots gave under the knife and how pretty they were. The purple skins and the white insides against the texture of the cutting board. This photo is a happy rediscovery. Now, what WAS that recipe… I do remember it was quite tasty!
