Ode to my Box Grater

March 10, 2010

Oatmeal Raspberry Scones

I was packing up my kitchen this afternoon and I got to thinking.

I got to thinking about my box grater… which is totally weird.

As if thinking at length about my box grater weren’t odd enough… I’m now going to shovel my box grater thoughts onto your lap.

There’s butter.  There’s cheese.  There’s roots and veggies.  All the drama and intrigue you could want from one little box grater.

aaaand… seriously… thanks for playing along.  I realize I’m ridiculous.

Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Dulce de Leche Buttercream

First things first: carrots.

These are Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Dulce de Leche Frosting.  These are best when unwrapped and shoved into your face.

Pizza for you face

Cheese.  Just say yes.

Homemade pizza and a movie rental with your honey… just the best night ever.  Take note.

Cheddar Black Pepper Biscuits

Cheddar Black Pepper Biscuits.  Because biscuits are the answer to every problem.

Zucchini Sweet Potato Bread

Grated greens and roots for Zucchini Sweet Potato Bread.  It’s the goodness.

Zucchini Pancakes

While we have the zucchini out.   Pancakes.  Zucchini Pancakes.

No Roll Pie Crust and a Sugar Pie

Take frozen butter to the box grater.  It’s a wonder in pie and scone dough.  It’s a secret weapon from me to you.

This No Roll Pie Crust recipe I came up with… it’s dang amazing!
