Maple & Pine Nuts Crust-less Roasted Carrot Pie

By HomeRearedChef, published on Jan 3, 2013

By HomeRearedChef, published on Dec 10, 2012

Recreating this recipe, of eggs, cheese, milk, flour and butter, with actual hands on and following the easy step-by-step recipe, made me realize all the hard work, endless hours and love that Julia poured into everything she did.

Not N’awlins Andouille & Seafood Gumbo

By HomeRearedChef, published on Nov 3, 2012

...to the very last bite!

You can blindfold a connoisseur of Cajun gastronomy from Louisiana and bring him to San Jose, California, but when he eats this Gumbo he’ll swear he never left home. But I hereby promise that though we’ve dared to jazz and tweak Paul Prudhomme’s original recipe, we have committed no sacrilege here; we have but practiced pure alchemy! Chef Prudhomme still is, and always will be, the undisputed genius of Cajun cookery.

Gumbo is a very intricate dish, time consuming to put together, to say the least, but in the end so worth the time and effort to... (more)

Chorizo & Stout Cream Gravy N' Biscuits Recipe

By HomeRearedChef, published on Nov 1, 2012

Gravy should be thick, rich and delicious. And what could be better for a Sunday brunch than creamy, country gravy n’ biscuits. But for this revamped recipe zesty pork chorizo has been used in place of sausage, with the addition of hearty Stout.

The South is known for their wonderful biscuits and gravy, but here in San Jose, well, I’ve begun a new tradition with my family, and these are here to stay.

For this recipe, Mexican chorizo was used; a type of chorizo that lends more toward a slight vinegar flavor which makes for the desired gravy for this recipe.
