Top Recipe

I just came across this recipe for Stephanie's Mixed Fruit crumble thingy from Bravo that everyone went ga-ga over last night and thought I'd share. Honestly, I'd like to just snack on the Cinnamon Gyoza, but that's beside the point. And for the life of me I don't know what chiffonade is in this recipe. Oh well. Enjoy.

Kwana, I have to admit that I sometimes have to avoid your blog because we watch ALL THE SAME TV but I catch up on weekends via DVR, so you're quite a spoiler for me! But this week I'm pretty up to date, and this is JUST the recipe I wanted from TC last night. Yay! Thanks!

Kwana said...

Well I'm glad to have it for you, Melissa. Please stop by and give comments after you watch on the weekends. I'd love to hear your take on the shows too.

Good to hear you have such fine taste in TV!

Chiffonade basically means thin strips. In this case, you'd lay the basil leaves on top of each other, roll them up like a cigar then slice through the cigar so that you end up with long thin strips of basil when you're done. Does that make sense?

Eileen said...

Looks yummy!!! When are you making it for me???

Kwana said...

Oh, Kristen you are a wealth of info! Thanks.

Eileen, I was hoping you'd make it for me!

I thought you made it! I have to admit, I am very curious about it. I thought the smores was a little more fun...

Kwana said...

Hi Nova. No, I didn't make it. I'm more of a recipe finder:)
I agree smores are always fun.
