My Top 10 Favorite Ingredients

Top Ten {Tuesday}

There are so many flavors, so many textures, so many possibilities to choose from. As a new cook, I am just beginning to discover how to use ingredients, spices, and food in a new way. Here are my top ten so far. What are your favorite ingredients to cook with?

10. Roasted Vegetables – they come out so crunchy and flavorful!

9. Chocolate – Ok, this just has to be in the top ten no matter what!

8. Asparagus – I’m trying to find new ways to sneak this veggie into just about anything.

7. Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese – It’s so much better than the store-bought stuff you put on pasta.

6. Curry – I swear you can throw it in any dish and it amps up the flavor ten fold!

5. Mozzarella and Basil – It reminds me of my honeymoon in Paris. C’est la vie!

4. Olive Oil – I feel elegant when I pour it out of my special bottle, I’m not sure why!

3. Freshly Ground Pepper – same as above πŸ™‚

2. Balsamic Vinegar – It is my go-to for dressing and so delicious to use as a reduction.

1. Freshly Grated Ginger – I used it for the first time recently and it has a perfume that will smack you in the face with love!

  1. Panera used to make this AWESOME asparagus soup! It was sooooo good and creamy and yummy! You should see if you could find a recipe for it, or something like it. I cant remember what else was in it, but it was so good I bought a huge tub of it!
