Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner! So to celebrate, thought I would do a quick round-up of some favorite Gimme Some Oven recipes that might be perfect for the occasion! Read on below for great appetizers, salsas (apparently I’ve post on these often), soups, salads, main dishes, desserts, beverages and more…
It’s “Smoothie Week” here at Gimme Some Oven! Check back here and on Facebook each day for a yummy (and colorful) new recipe to enjoy. Plus, we’ll conclude the week with another rockin’ giveaway. Oh-so-creatively-named recipes to come will include:
Have you ever done an explanation on your site about the differences between cooking oils? I always tend to default to using olive oil, but I’ve heard it’s not always the best to use since it has a lower smoke point. But I’m really don’t know much about the other oils out there. (My eyes get crossed staring at all of the options at the grocery store!!!) Any advice you can offer would be great! Thanks again for this site.
And…to follow up the list of YOUR ten favorite 2010 recipes from Gimme Some Oven, couldn’t resist adding in an extra ten of my own. It was so hard to choose, and many of my favorites overlapped with yours. But to highlight ten more delicious ideas for your next year of cooking, I narrowed it down to this yummy list.
Thanks so much again for being such rockin’ readers this year! Looking forward to another year of some more deliciousness. :)
Most Wednesdays, my lunchbreak usually consists of a sack lunch and me at my cubicle editing endless pages of sheet music. But this past Wednesday, I was able to slip away for a few hours and attend a sweet (literally!) cookie exchange with some fellow Kansas City food bloggers. So fun!!!
Overcrowded shopping malls? Endless holiday parties? Wayyyy too many sugary treats calling your name? Presents…upon presents…upon presents…to buy? Adorning your puppy with bows and ribbons that have even him wanting to bark, “Bah Humbug???”
This year Chipotle switched up their Halloween theme. Instead of having everyone dress up as burritos to win a free burrito (been there, done that – see below), the theme this year was “horrifying processed foods”.
Do you have any advice on what kinds of apples are best for baking? There are so many recipes out there I want to try this fall, but it seems like most of them don’t specify which kind of apples to use. Any quick tips would be really great!
Hi Ali! I absolutely love your food blog and all your hard work. I especially come here when I need some tips on photography. Anyway, you mentioned that your set up was a foam board and fabric. I was just wondering that when you photograph with fabric, how do you lay it out? Does it hang on the foam board or do you just lay it out on the table and let the board reflect the light? And when there isn’t any natural light handy, what do you do? Sorry for all the questions, but your blog has been a favorite with me, and I come to it when I’m looking for recipes and tips. It’s proven so helpful!
