The Cooking In Sanity Project: Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Puree de Pommes de Terra a l'Ail

Hey everyone!

Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I decided to make garlic mashed potatoes.  I don’t know about you, but I am a big fan of mashed potatoes.  However, I am pretty picky about my potatoes!  I like my mashed potatoes to be slightly chunky and not super buttery.  I was definitely interested to see how Julia’s garlic mashed potatoes would turn out.


The garlic mashed potatoes ended up being super tasty!  I love the fact that the potatoes still had the skins on them – I think it added a great texture to the mashed potatoes.  The garlic was subtle but added a delicious hint of flavor.  I loved pairing these potatoes with Julia’s braised shoulder of lamb with beans recipe (definitely check out that video too) for a delicious and hearty meal.

The Cooking In Sanity Project: Braised Shoulder of Lamb with Beans, Gigot ou Epaule de Pre-Sale Braise aux Haricots

Hi everyone!

Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I cooked up some braised shoulder of lamb with beans.  I think lamb is one of the most underrated meats, and it’s one of my favorites.  Some people don’t like it because of its distinct, game-y taste, but I personally enjoy it, so I was super excited to make this dish!


This dish turned out to be absolutely amazing!  The lamb was tender and had a delicious flavor and the beans really complimented the texture and flavors of the meat.  This is a great dish to make during the winter because it’s filling and flavorful. 

Thanks for watching and I’ll see you next time!

The Cooking In Sanity Project: Scrambled Omelette, l'Omelette Brouillee


Hi everyone!

Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I made a scrambled omelet.  I must admit, I am not the best omelet-maker and am generally too scared to make omelets.  However, Julia’s method did seem pretty straight-forward so I decided to put my fears aside and give it a go.

 
I definitely think with some practice I can become a decent omelet-maker.  Julia’s method was easy
to follow and I will definitely use it next time I make some omelets.

The Cooking In Sanity Project: Variation of Eggs Baked in Ramekins


Hey everybody!
Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I did a quick variation on eggs baked in ramekins by adding some herbs.  Here’s how I did it:
 
I think adding the herbs to the eggs gave them a great flavor, and they ended up being pretty darn tasty.  Thanks for watching, see you next time!

The Cooking In Sanity Project: Eggs Baked in Ramekins, Oeufs en Cocottes


Hey everyone!
Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I made eggs baked in ramekins.  For those of you who don’t know, a ramekin is basically a mini dish (similar to something like a mini casserole dish) that can be used to bake single-serving foods, whether it’s something like mac and cheese or a cookie.  Or, in this case, eggs!

 
This method did take a little while as it involved baking with an actual oven so I don’t think I’d make it on a regular basis, but I do think the eggs turned out tasting pretty good.  I think I’ll stick with scrambled eggs for now!

The Cooking In Sanity Project: Braised Lettuce, Laitues Braisees

Hi everyone!

Today on the Cooking in Sanity project I decided to make braised lettuce.  When I first read this recipe I thought it meant braised cabbage, but nope!  They meant real lettuce, like the kind you use in salads.  Pretty weird, right?



I actually like boiled cabbage, especially with some simple seasoning like olive oil and salt, but braised lettuce was a bit too weird for me.  It wasn’t particularly bad, but I think I’ll stick to boiled cabbage for now!
