On the Docket- Week of July 9, 2012

July 9th, 2012 by Susan

I think it’s going to be an interesting week.  First, I’ve accepted a “Sweet Genius” baking challenge.  My old boss and I were talking about cooking shows, and he issued me a challenge:  to use three random ingredients and an inspiration in a dessert a la the show.  I could not say no because I thought it would be a ton of fun.  I get my ingredients on Monday, so more to come on what happens there.

Second, my husband wants to try infusing our own liquors.  On 4th of July, while I was making breakfast, he came into the kitchen with six small Ball jars.  Why, might you ask, do we have six small Ball jars when I have never canned or preserved anything my life?  That is an excellent question for which I do not have an answer.  Setting the jars on the microwave, my husband said “I think we should infuse some whiskey.  I’m thinking peach and blackberry.  Would you be willing to look up how to do this so we could give it a shot?”  Once again, I could not say no, so more to come on that adventure.

With those two items in the works, I am once again not sure what will be cooked this week, but here are some recipes I’ve pulled to try.

Blackberry pie:  this is one of my favorite desserts of all time.  I am going to make one before the summer berry season is done.  I’m not sure if I’m going to go with the lattice crust, but we’ll see.

Tom Yum Grilled Shrimp:  Summer grilling season is upon us, and grilled shrimp is always delicious.  This recipe looked nice and spicy, so I added it to the list to try!

Salmon and Peas:  Not sure how this is a 4th of July Tradition, but this recipe looked delicious.
