Erin Cooks the Internet: January 12, 2008

January 12, 2008

Le Creuset has had a big sale going on at amazon.com for a while now and it made me wonder if perhaps, just maybe, that might possibly mean they’re going to introduce a new color. And wouldn’t it be a lovely thing if that meant they finally released a pink version of their dutch oven […]

Christmas Fettuccine

December 24, 2007

There’s a brief scene in the movie The Holiday where Kate Winslet decides to cheer up Jack Black by making him Christmas Fettuccine (start around 3:20 on the video above). So if it’s good enough for Kate Winslet, it’s good enough for me. I attempted searching around a little bit to see if this was […]

Chocolate-Hazelnut Smooches

October 17, 2007

When I originally saw these Chocolate-Hazelnut Smooches aka Witch Hat Cookies on YumSugar I thought they were absolutely adorable. We’ve all made the peanut butter version before and I thought the reinvention of the recipe for Halloween was too cute for words. Unfortunately, while the cookies turned out picture perfect I had numerous problems with […]

Erin Cooks The Internet: August 10, 2007

August 10, 2007

So that Hell’s Kitchen finale — how cool was that!? Yeah, I’m kidding. I should have suspected that this week wouldn’t be the finale, but I let FOX blindly convince me that Rock and Bonnie would duke it out to the death. I was wrong. I honestly started to get panicked half way through the […]

May 19, 2007

Who else is super excited about Food Network being available in HD? I’ve been waiting for this day since we bought our HDTV last summer. Comcast kept me in such suspense! And just for all of you people who reach my blog by searching for “Giada’s Breasts” I’d like to point out that yes, her […]

Garlic and Citrus Chicken

March 5, 2007

I’d only baked a chicken once before, last year on Easter, but it came out fine so I figured when I decided to roast another chicken (using the same recipe I might add) that I’d be an old pro by now. Unfortunately, overconfidence in the kitchen is not a good thing. It all started out […]

Farfalle with Turkey Sausage, Peas and Mushrooms

November 19, 2006

We’re obviously all more than aware that I can cook, but I bet you didn’t know that CK can also hold his own in the kitchen. The below dish is actually a reenactment of the first meal that Chris ever made for me. We both had a bit of a crush on Giada de Laurentis and spent […]

Giada’s Chicken Ragu

October 24, 2006

It’s fairly obvious from the selection of recipes I’ve featured so far on erincooks.com that I am a Food Network addict. When I was living on my own after college for the first time I was made thoroughly aware of the fact that I was extremely deficient in the cooking department. After living on Pasta […]
