Here's the post:
This weekend I had one successful experiment, one so-so experiment, and one dud experiment in the kitchen.
|chicken wrapped in prosciutto|
- The bomb was the socca bread here. I don't know what I did wrong (maybe it's because I don't have a cast iron skillet), but it turned into mush. (see photo) no matter how long I cooked it. I'll have to ask my friend what her secrets are.
- The so-so one was dairy free nutella here. I only have a ninja blender and not a vitamix so the texture was gritty instead of creamy. But the taste was spot on. I had to put more oil in it than it said to make it seem moist enough.
- I made up a recipe for dinner that turned out well. You take the skin off of chicken breasts, wrap them in prosciutto (kind of like a cross between ham and bacon), drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme. Cook in a sauce pan until golden and cooked through. The other entree was a Food for Life (GF) english muffin smeared with garlic browned in olive oil. Then I piled sauteed zucchini (in garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil), halved cherry tomatoes, and torn bits of fresh basil on top. If it had goat's cheese crumbles on it (which I can't have, much to my shagrin) it would have been just right.
