I am taking a 1/2 day to celebrate and cook today! The corned beef has been brining in the fridge for a few days. I found the recipe through Craftzine’s Blog. It was really pretty simple, you just have to give it at least 3 days to brine. The real recipe is here at Chow.com. I hope to have some good photos of it tomorrow.
I’ve actually been spending quite a bit of my free time cooking lately. I think the spring weather has me wanting to try new fresh recipes. Last Friday I used Martha Stewarts Lime Meltaway recipe to make orange meltaways.
I just basically substituted orange whenever the recipe called for lime. I’ve done this with lemon too, these are so nice with a cup of tea!
On Sunday I made a couple different things…. First was the cranberry lime scones I made for breakfast.
Here is my recipe :
~preheat oven to 500 degrees
1 1/2 cups white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. sugar, I use turbinado sugar
cut in 1/4 cup very cold butter so you have little butter particles that are about the size of a small pea.
zest of one lime
Juice from 1/2 of the lime
Enough milk to make 1/2 cup when added to lime juice, I use soy milk
1/2 cups chopped frozen cranberries
Round up on a floured surface. Knead very lightly. Pat out to about 1/2 inch thick. brush with 2-3 Tbs of milk and sprinkle 2 Tbs more sugar over top. Cut into wedges. place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8 minutes until golden brown.
Then on Sunday evening I used this recipe from RecipeZaar to make tortilla crusted tilapia.
The recipe worked out really well, I’ll be making this again and again!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a very nice St. Patrick’s Day!
