I liked the breakfast in a glass. I really thought they tasted good and were good choices of things to eat. I liked the Ministrone the best because it was a fairly good tasting and fun to make. I loved the Homemade Mac n’ Cheese. I really liked the white cheese sauce. I would seriously recommend making this recipe again with another class.

 

I disliked the grain salad the most. I disliked it because I found the grains didn’t taste that great and I think we used the wrong dressing. Otherwise it was ok. We could have cooked the carrots longer though. I didn’t really like the apple sauce because it turned out chunky and didn’t taste that great. If we had more time in class to make the recipe it may have turned out better.

 

I would have liked to make more smoothies, beef tacos, and French fries.

 

I think tacos would be an excellent addition to the course. I think it would be because it would be easy to make and most people would probably enjoy making them. They would also probably taste great. http://www.melskitchencafe.com/2008/04/tacos-supreme.html the only downside to this site is that it is in imperial but it is the only one I found.

 

I thought how we made the white sauce was very interesting because it was a very new concept. I found the portion distortion interesting because it was fascinating to me about how the calories in foods have increased, along with portion sizes. I found the knife safety and learning the different cuts interesting this I learned about over the past two weeks. I found it most interesting because the different cuts were new and they fascinated me.

Hope you enjoyed this blog and that it met the criteria.

 

Signing off for the final time in the forseable future.

I loved the Homemade Mac n’  Cheese. It was one of the best recipes we have made all year. I really liked the white cheese sauce. I would seriously recommend making this recipe again with another class.

 

I disliked the Spicy Penne the absolute least. I disliked it so strongly because I am not one for spices. I think just making plain Penne like this one:  http://www.food.com/recipe/creamy-garlic-penne-pasta-43023?scaleto=4&mode=null&st=true                               would be better.

What is comfort food?

I liked the Ministrone the best because it was a fairly good tasting and fun to make.

 

I disliked the grain salad the most. I disliked it because I found the grains didn’t taste that great and I think we used the wrong dressing. Otherwise it was ok. We could have cooked the carrots longer though.

The closest suggestion to a similar recipe would be a simple green salad like the salad buffet we did in class.

 

I found the portion distortion interesting because it was fascinating to me about how the calories in foods have increased, along with portion sizes.

 

How long would you have to rake leaves to burn 210 more calories?

The recipe I liked the most was the recipe for the Pita Chips. I thought they turned out wonderful and wish we had more of them.

 

I disliked the Salsa the most because it had jalepenoes and cilantro in it, which I don’t like; plus, truth be told, I just don’t like Salsa. But if it didn’t have jalepenoes or cilantro I would have probably liked it. So my suggestion for a recipe is, well, the same recipe as we did in class just minus the jalepinoes and cilantro.

 

I found the making of the Pita Chips the most fun and interesting thing over the last two weeks. I found it interesting because the way they were made fasinated me for some reason. I could have probably made a lot more of them and not have become bored.

 

Review Question:

 

What is the definition of boil?

I liked the breakfast burrito the best because it was filling, the egg was well cooked, and it had a lot of cheese.

I didn’t really like the apple sauce because it turned out chunky and didn’t taste that great. If we had more time in class to make the recipe it may have turned out better. http://chefmichaelsmith.com/recipe/cinnamon-applesauce/ I think would be an imporved recipe.

I found the knife safety and learning the different cuts interesting this I learned about over the past two weeks. I found it most interesting because the different cuts were new and they fascinated me.

Review question:

What is one (1) quart in metric?

I liked the breakfast in a glass and the crepe recipes. I really thought they tasted good and were good choices of things to eat.

I didnt really like the potato latkes because i found they had way to much onion in them and didnt really taste that great. I think the recipe itself would be better if it had a little less onion in them, insted of a full onion, maybe only half an onion would be better.

I found making the crepes the most interesting, and tasty thing I learned how to do over the past two weeks.

What is one (1) teaspoon (tsp) in mililitres (ml)?

The recipe I liked the least in the last class, Thursday, was Chocolate Chip Cookies (a.k.a. Kathy’s Cookies). I didn’t really like them because I don’t like chocolate, seriously, I don’t like chocolate. From what I’ve heard though other people in the class really liked the cookies. So I won’t discredit them that much. A link to a recipe I thought would be better then this one but not that different is http://allrecipes.com/recipe/classic-peanut-butter-cookies/.

 

I found learning about converting the recipes between metric and imperial the most interestinjg thing over the last two classes.
