#BrunchWeek 2014 Shout-Outs: Courtney, Ashley, & Alice

And the 2014 #BrunchWeek blogger intros continue...

Courtney at Neighboorfood  has an entire gluten-free section of her blog. While I am not gluten-free, several of our close friends are. So, I'm excited about trying Courtney's GF Strawberry Lemonade Valentine Lintzer Cookies. And her Tomato-Bacon Jam had me longing for a jar. As soon as I see some fresh tomatoes, I'm making it!

Ashley runs the blog Quarter Life Crisis Cuisine. Her favorite foods are tacos and sushi. And I adore her To-Cook List. I, too, plan to attempt homemade bagels one of these days. Check out her Greek Lemon Chicken Soup, Campfire Quiche (I'm taking that recipe on our annual 10-day camping trip), and Gruyere Apple Tart. I've always wanted to make a cheese + apple dessert; I just never got around to it. I will now.

Alice is one Hip Foodie Mom. And she freely admits "I am hopelessly addicted to coffee, chocolate cake and any and all Asian inspired recipes." As luck would have it, one of the first recipes I found on her blog is one that I had at a brewery last weekend...and I was wondering where to start to recreate it. Thanks, Alice...this is perfect: Pork Belly Lettuce Wraps. Her Extra Spicy-Honey-Sriracha Chicken Wings are also calling my name. And on the chocolate cake side of things, her Chocolate Mini Bundts are drool-worthy.

Looking forward to the recipes that this trio will be posting next week. Hooray for #BrunchWeek.

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found." Read her invitation here. And there won't be a Twitter chat for this event, so you will have to dive into the articles themselves to read about our pairings and findings. Here's the line-up...
