Recipes and food posts to bookmark; January 4th list

I am very fond of parmesam-crusted chicken, though I’ve never been able to make it myself… at least not to my satisfaction. So I’m sharing this recipe for Parmesan-Crusted Chicken With Kale And Chard Greens, Since I just discovered Kale, I thought this was worth bookmarking and keeping in case I want to take another crack at the chicken… or in case I can convince someone else to make it for me. 

Every once in a while I see a photo of food online and just salivate. The accompanying photo for the MARMALADE GLAZED BABY BACK RIBS recipe accomplished just that. The recipe looks simple enough, I’ve never made ribs before, but I’m giving this recipe a long thought, based on the photo. 

Here’s a recipe I’m actually going to make myself: Gnocchi with Sun Dried Tomato Cream Sauce. The ingredients list was short and the instructions look simple. I love love love pasta, especially with a creamy sauce and parmesan. They’re so satisfying, and they “keep” well as leftovers. 

If I were the type to actually make cookies, then I’d start with this Mexican Oaxacan chocolate cookies recipe (found on the Voxxi site). Definitely looks yummy. 

Or maybe I’d try these Dark Chocolate Chunk Ginger Cookies.Ok, with this recipe I’d definitely need someone to make them for me. But I’m more than willing to beta test the results. 

I love pumpkin pie, pumpkin pie cheesecake, etc. I found a recipe for Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal that looks good, and not too hard to make. There are a few variations, even one recipe to make with a microwave. 

For dessert, if there’s some sort of cheesecake as an option, that’s usually what I’m going to choose. The Muy Bueno Cookbook site has a great-looking Mexican Chocolate Kahlua Cheesecake. Sounds a little bit involved to make, but looks delicious. 

Even though the holidays are over, I thought I’d share this not-quite-traditional Tamales Dulces de Pasas, Piña, Coco y Nuez recipe (in Spanish). I love sweet tamales, and the idea of adding coconut, pecans and pineapple sounds divine.
