There are so many things to do and only 16 days to enjoy ;-)

We are flying into Liberia then moving to visit (no particular order) Monteverde / Tortuguero / San Jose and Arenal mostly + maybe 2 days at the beach. Any recommendations are welcome ;-)

Yes, that almond roca rocked my world this morning
The fluffy potato rolls turned out awesome! They have a perfect bread texture and are quite tasty. As well they are visually appealing with a nice golden colored top. I ate them before I read your post so will have to take a pic the next time I make them... but if you have any potato puree kicking around- try them!!- you won't regret it...
I eyeball the ingredients for the taco dressing but roughly
1tsp oil
2-3tsp ketchup
2-3 T apple cider vinegar
And however much Frank's floats your boat... I love spice so I'm pretty liberal...

I'm dreaming of low carb Indian food... have already found a low carb naan recipe that I will be trying out the very first night of Phase 4 hits again! In the meantime the coconut curry rice is assuaging my craving for Indian...

Liz - the 'Blanket' in the Pig in a Blanket is also an IP food. BTW - probably won't make this recipe again.

Any suggestions on how to tenderize Flank Stk? That's what I used in this recipe, and it was really tough.

Ah - gotcha on the 4th IP food - I guess I am blind!

As to tenderizing a cut of meat - you are talking to a butcher's daughter (he just retired after 39 years!). I grew up on meat! There are a few ways - before you cook it you can pound the h*ll out of it with a meat mallet to break down the muscle fibers or you can score the steak diagonally with a knife ~1" apart. Marinading is another way, but that can be tricky with IP, since a lot of 'commercial' marinades include sugar and you need some time (~1 hour, not much longer though) - you can DIY an acidic marinade with spices and soy, apple cider vinegar, or lemon juice. Also if you overcook it then you will end up with a dryer/tougher cut regardless of tenderizing. Honestly - I usually use a mallet combined with a 30-minute garlic, spice, & soy marinade when I deal with more muscular cuts.

Capricious.....gee the recipe sounds so good.....can you put in enough batter to make the rolls a size for a hamburger....if so is there a difference in how long they stay in the oven? Ohhh I'm so making this this weekend
