So for those that don't know, i like to believe myself as a fairly computer and technology literate man. I can work my phone (somewhat) and know how to work my computer (at least until i got to Windows 8). Just about a day ago now, a report came out that YouTube was looking to revamp their online streaming services to compete with who might be the undisputed king of streaming services, Twitch.
So this morning, i went down to my local Tri-C campus (That's Cuyahoga Community College, typically shortened to Tri-C for those of you not from the area) to take a test. This one was for the Internationally Certified Food Safety Manager Certification from the National Registry of Food Safety Professionals. I'll let the paper do the rest of the talking for me...
Eggplant is a vegetable that is so versatile but it's never much in the spotlight. Always a bridesmaid, if that's the correct saying...But give this recipe a try.
This salad uses popcorn chicken for it's crunch (hench the name 'crunch salad') but could easily be substituted with a grilled, baked or sauteed chicken for a less calorie laden option. Otherwise, this is a salad that satisfies plenty of appetites.
So i said my main goal was get certification with the ACF and the ANFP. I found that the ANFP offered a practice test as well for their certification and (while im waiting on them to ship me the books i ordered from them) decided to take a crack at it. Yep...
You gotta have that one go-to sandwich for your party right? The one that says, 'This sandwich here? THIS is why you came to my party instead of...Ralph's...or whomever...'
This is a sandwich that will take a little bit of doing to get it prepared. The pork can be made in advance and i certainly recommend that you cook it the day before your party. Like most sandwiches, the bread you choose is an essential part of its construction and taste. I chose Ciabatta for its ability to stand up to the moist components of this sandwich and it's rustic, crispy outside when it's toasted. You can choose others,but this is definitely not something you would slap on your normal, run-of-the-mill white bread in your cooler.
Probably the most famous iteration of 'Freckled Lemonade' i'd wager comes from the Red Robin line of restaurants. Pretty good restaurants actually. But as far as your Super Bowl party goes, with everything you're eating, you want to have something to wash it down with. This recipe is a 'virgin' style drink, which means there's no alcohol in it. But you can take what's here and add a little nip of something if that's your cup of tea.
Potato salad a lot of time gets the bad rap of being that 'ho-hum' side at any party that its at. This recipe hopes to liven that up a bit with some hearty ingredients and fresh perspective! From a technical perspective, potatoes for potato salad are typically boiled. The biggest problem with that is all of the nutrients and, more importantly, the flavor is washed away into the discarded water. I prefer to bake them; i lose nothing as far as the nutrients, baking results in a firmer, more flavorful potato cube, and it doesn't get that 'gummy' taste.
Time for something a little bit different. The giant subs and super-human stackers are what you usually associate a 'sandwich' with when you think of this week. Lets go small, simple and tasty. These pinwheels take really no effort to make and really relies on you finding a good grocery store to get you nice, tasty turkey.
