Google IO Conference Cookies

05.12.11 by Jackie
Finally, there are Google cookies that we can all enjoy regardless of our privacy settings. :) My husband smuggled these out of the 2011 Google I/O Conference after-party so that I can share them with you. Plates of these treats emblazoned with YouTube, Google TV and Chrome (I think) logos were gobbled up by hungry geeks along with many other sweet and savory snacks.

Indian Sweets from Hyderabad

09.19.10 by Jackie
Family friends from Hyderabad (India) came to visit us last weekend. They brought with them delicious specialties from Lulu's father's hometown. They're called "fruit biscuits". The texture is crumbly, just like a shortbread cookie with a strong rose flavor and a variety of dried fruits.

Breaded Tilapia (Nori Crusted Fish Recipe) Recipe

Tilapia is an easy fish to prepare but can be pretty bland on its own. To enhance the flavor, I breaded the fish with a blend of shortbread cookies, white miso paste, wasabi and nori sheets. I covered the fish fillets with nori-flavored breading, pan-fried it and finish the cooking in the oven.

If you're trying to introduce seafood to your children, I think tilapia is a good fish to start with. It's mild in flavor and the other plus is it's inexpensive.

Lemon Crusted Fish (Baked Mahi Mahi Recipe) Recipe

This lemon crusted fish recipe is my attempt to create a savory dish using the Walkers shortbread cookies I recently received. Instead of using bread crumbs, I finely ground shortbread cookies that I blended with sun-dried tomatoes, parsley, candied kumquats, lemon zest and a few other spices.

I used mahi mahi because it's a great way to introduce fish to children, as the flesh is more subtle in flavor than any other fish. When properly cooked, mahi mahi is flaky with bright, firm flesh. To make the dish, I very briefly seared the fish, covered the fillets with the lemon crust and bakes them for a few minutes. It was as simple as that!

The shortbread crust has a buttery flavor and mild sweetness that really accentuates the fish. I set some aside and the girls were eating the crust by itself. It was such a hit that I’m thinking of recreating the dish with fried tofu instead of fish. Stay tuned.

Earl Grey Ice Cream Sandwich Recipe Recipe

I made Earl Grey ice cream sandwiches today with homemade Earl Grey tea ice cream. One member in my family is allergic to eggs, so this recipe suits her perfectly, as no eggs are involved in this dessert. I used chocolate chip Walkers shortbread cookies, which are eggless as well. At the same time, I thought I'd experiment a bit in advance of my little munchkin's big birthday party at the end of the month. She's been such a good girl, helping me out all week long since she's on vacation. I thought this would be the perfect treat to reward her because the sandwiches are perfect for little hands and fingers!

I absolutely adore the flavor combination; the bergamot in Earl Grey tea has a truly distinctive flavor which, -interestingly- tastes almost like Fruit Loops cereal when mixed in ice cream batter. For convenience, and because they taste great, I made ice cream sandwiches using packs of Walkers chocolate chip cookies. If you have time, you could also make homemade chocolate chip cookies for the sandwiches.
