recipes that make me squee #2

Here are some recipes and food news from around the interwebs, i.e. stuff I like. These posts and stories have been selected utilizing a most discerning palate, with an eye towards maturity (bento) and calorie-consciousness (gobs of cheese, peanut butter, and chocolate). Chow down.

Spanish Frittata from A Mingling of Tastes

spanish frittataEver since I lived in Spain, I’ve wanted to made an authentic tortilla de patatas. According to every authentic recipe I’ve read, it’s a finicky, thus daunting, task. This recipe from A Mingling of Tastes puts the essence of tortilla in frittata form, adding some feta and peppers, and has way easier preparation. I want to make this.

Spring 2010 Bento Contest: The Winners! from Just Bento

bento contest winnersBento, or artistic Japanese packed lunches, are my ultimate culinary aspiration. Seriously. I don’t want to make a perfect béchamel or develop a whole wheat sourdough levain that doesn’t cause sinus infections to flare up and eat my face from the inside.

I just want to make a Joss Whedon bento. Just once.

    Let me know how it goes. I haven’t worked up the nerve to make one yet. Afraid it won’t be as I remembered.

    P.S. My mom made the Reese’s things and they were mega yum.
