I MISSED YOU GUYS SO MUCH! LET’S MAKE NICE :)

17 Nov

Hi to all of my followers and others who have visited my very inactive blog over the past few months. I have been going to school for Skin Esthetics since September and this is why I have been MIA for so long. I have had many tests and lots of no sleep so keeping up with Salt Pepper Brilliant has been pretty much impossible…but I definitely missed it. So I am here to tell you that SPB will be back on track shortly. I am learning to manage my time better and I am currently working on new posts for you guys. The posts won’t be as abundant as before but there definitely won’t be such a large gap in between. The goal is at least one post a week. I will try my best to stick to this goal. Also I will start posting photos of what I am up to in school during the practical portion of my day. Yesterday we worked with paraffin it was pretty awesome.  So let’s make nice and have some cake and sushi with the Host Club <3—Christina

Have some cake from Honey 🙂

Giving the baked potato a seriously delicious makeover…yum!

30 Jan

       Ah, the baked potato in its sour cream and cheddar cheese topped glory. It is an American staple that is simply delicious, but what if you gave this quick lunch a makeover? One day I was craving a baked potato really badly. After seeing my father on my most recent visit have a baked potato every day for lunch I was really craving a spud.  However, I wasn’t really in the mood for the same old baked potato toppings. I wanted something exciting; something to really make the culinary angels sing. So I grabbed my bag and set my sites on the grocery store.

       The second I arrive I make my way to the cheese case. Now when it comes to cheese I am not picky. I don’t discriminate against any of these dairy delights, but I wanted something I don’t usually stock in my kitchen. There it was a wheel of triple cream goat cheese brie, what a beauty. So what can I have with this brie? Honey would be nice, but I’m not really seeing honey in my baked potato future. Then it hits me, dates! They would be perfect for my delicious experiment. Now I only hoped this store carried dates, and to my complete and utter joy they did.

       The second I arrived home I went to work, and so should you (hehe):

Date and Brie Stuffed Bake Potato

(AKA Best lunch ever!)

 

A potato per person medium to large in size

A wedge or a wheel of brie cheese

Dried dates, soaked in a little warm water so they can soften a bit

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Scrub and rinse your potatoes, leave the skins on. Prick your potatoes all over with a fork and wrap in foil. Bake your potatoes for one hour. Let them cool slightly then cut them lengthwise down the center without breaking the bottom skin. Season them lightly with salt and pepper. Now take a fork and stir up the flesh of the potato slightly. This will let all of the brie melt into all of the crevices.

        Add as much cheese as you like, and then add the dates. I leave them whole but you can chop them if you like. Close the potato around your filling and rewrap in the foil and place back into the oven until the cheese melts. I usually leave it in for about ten minutes. When finished unwrap and enjoy.

 

       This is one of my favorite things to eat for lunch. The melting oozing brie with its salty goodness, coupled with the rich honey flavor of the dates is amazing. When I first came up with this combo (I’m not going to lie) I ate this for lunch three days in a row. It is just that good. Try it out for yourself and tell me how you like it! —-CMY
