I may look for more things to shred just so I can keep playing with my food processor. This was two #zucchinis. One became the chocolate zucchini bread I posted last night. One is baking right now as #GF #oven #fried zucchini #latkes. #keepitcute #ladieswhocook #ladiesthatcook #foodie #veggies #squash #foodporn #yougottaeatthis #yget #Brooklyn (at la cucina mia)

I know I’m #lateboots, but I FINALLY tried a #Ramen #Burger & Ramen #fries yesterday. I’m a little ashamed I didn’t get a second one it was so good. I may have to stop by Berg’n today after #brunch to get a second one. Being the #tater lover I am, I was particularly surprised by how good the fries were. 
If we’re going to be completely honest, I wanted another two but figured that gobbling them up like White Castle burgers may not have been a good look even if in the name of a #epicurious adventure. #food #dining #cuisine #keepitcute #Brooklyn #foodie #foodporn #diningout #CrownHeights (at Berg’n)

Fat Salad…
(it’s a working title. Lol)

Found some green #tomatoes at the grocery store yesterday. #Fried them in #GlutenFree #flour, #cornmeal, & #panko. Sliced up some baby #spinach & dressed it w/blush wine #vinaigrette. 
I ran the tomatoes under the broiler w/nitrate free #bacon & #pepperjack #cheese. Laid the tomato stacks on top of the spinach. Since I had some breadcrumbs & egg left I dropped some yellow #onion in & fried those too. 
I convinced myself that the breading was better than croutons, especially since it was a #GF breading…
You know how they say the heart wants what it wants? I guess my heart is in my stomach. Lol 
Oh! I almost forgot! I rinsed the seeds out of the tomatoes to keep them from getting too soggy in their breading.

Clever. I may keep him around. 😍 That word play made me cackle like Miss Sophia for a solid 3 minutes & simultaneously swoon. #Pie is store-bought but that’s some of the #icecream I made last week. #dessert #sweets #apple #keepitcute   (at la cucina mia)

TMNT: Teenage Mutant Ninja Taters!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
These are THE largest #sweet #potatoes I have ever seen in my life. Seriously @fancythatphotography & I almost fell over in the grocery store laughing at these potato #turkeys. One #tater would be enough for a whole #pie! #food #yams  (at Foodtown of Kensington)

Guilt AND #GlutenFree #Pizza? Yes please!
INGREDIENTS
*1/2 of one container of @Pillsbury #GF pizza dough. I got the thin #crust kind. (I dunno if there’s another option.)
*1/2 cup premade #pasta #sauce
* 1 cup shredded #mozzarella
* 2 cups baby #spinach
*3/4 cup #pepperoni.

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Lay pepperoni on cookie sheet & allow to crisp.
3. Follow the directions on the container to transform the dough into crust while the pepperoni #toasts.
4. Remove the crust from the oven, cover with sauce.
5. Lay a bed of spinach on top of the sauce.
6. Remove pepperoni slices from the oven & lay on a paper towel to blot excess oil.
7. Cover spinach with shredded cheese.
8. Top with a layer of pepperoni and a handful more of #cheese.
9. Return the pizza to the oven for 5-7 minutes to allow the cheese to melt.
10. Remove from the oven, slice & serve.

5 years ago @lonniemcq & I discovered a Middle Eastern #restaurant in #Atlanta. While there we had a delicious dish that was essentially phyllo dough filled w/cream #cheese, #pepperjack, & #feta served with something like a #sweet #Thai #chili #sauce. 
Wouldn’t you know when I next went to #ATL, that restaurant was closed? *sigh* 
Since then, that dish has become one of the foods that haunts my dreams. 

I think I finally got it right. I subbed #eggroll wrappers for the phyllo dough & dubbed them Dedos de Queso-Cheese Fingers. This #salty, #spicy, #cheesy, #fries goodness is JUST what I needed tonight for #dinner…
I ate it w/a #spinach & #tomato salad topped w/#grilled #chicken & #sauteéd #onions. #food #grub #ladiesthatcook #ladieswhocook #dining #cooking #frying #cheeses #meal #yummy  (at la cucina mia)
