Food, lately.

About a week and a half ago, we made a few jars of pickles with all kinds of fresh herbs . I finally got to taste them. They turned out quite good, I think. A bit of a different flavor than most pickles I've had.
I want to try adding some of the pickling liquid to homemade martinis.
I also made these savory tarts last week. They are the easiest thing to make. I use Trader Joe's frozen crust. The top one is tomato, carmelized onion and olive and the bottom is carmelized onion, goat cheese and thyme.

Oh, and tried out Thomas Keller's fried chicken recipe from the Ad Hoc cookbook. 
I didn't take any photos. It turned out exactly as it should and was quite tasty, but 2 days spent preparing fried chicken is too long in my book. I'm adding fried chicken to my list of things best eaten out. Let someone else dirty their kitchen.

Next up on my list: Spicy Chili Pepper Brownies
I cant' find any brownie recipes using actual peppers, only chili powder. I have a ton of peppers from the farmers market and I really only like eating chocolate when it has some spice to it. If anyone has any ideas, pass them along. I'm thinking chili peppers and cardamom or cinnamon and dark chocolate.
