One day my girlfriend asked me to make her a smoothie. So I did. I don't really have a recipe for it since it was the first time I've ever made one and I really didn't feel like going online and digging one up. So I took a bunch of frozen berries, some yogurt, some milk and a bit of sugar and made her one. I did it like this.
First, I filled up a pint glass with frozen berries. I've found frozen berries to be a bit tart and they wind up getting squishy or just disintegrating if you try to cook with them. They are easy to use in sauces because of that, but I wouldn't suggest trying to make a crisp with them. Anyway, I dumped them in the blender. Followed them up with about a half cup of yogurt, about a half a cup of milk and a couple tablespoons of sugar. Then I just whizzed it up and poured it out. She enjoyed it very much. A bit of vanilla wouldn't have hurt, or fresh berries. Or for that matter, a splash of vodka. Well, if it wasn't her breakfast anyway. Heh. Does anyone make smoothies on a regular basis? Any advice for a newbie?
So I've decided to work on my one pot baked ziti recipe. It's a good recipe, but I want... something more from it. I recently made some pasta and sauce and decided to just whip up a little baked ziti the normal way (the normal way being: mix together some pasta and sauce, cover it with cheese and bake it). It was really good. But it made me want to do my one pot ziti wicked bad. No point to that little story, other than padding out the post a bit. Heh. Although if anyone has any advice on the baked ziti that would be cool too.
