The best of Food Porn Weekend

I'm still recovering from this weekend's Food Porn festivities, where 15 friends and I cooked and ate our way through an entire issue of Cooking Light magazine. It was epic, to say the least.

I know it sounds insane to think about doing every single recipe, even those from the ads, in a single weekend. But it really wasn't that horrific. Actually, it wasn't horrific at all. I'll let you know later in the week how we pulled off the logistics, but for now, let me give you the highlights from the food side of things.

Everything was delish. Truly, everything turned out well. (My friends are excellent cooks and bakers. What else can I say?) But there were some real winners from the group. My favorites included:









OK, I know that's a pretty big list for my "favorite" dishes, but seriously, everything was a stunner. And now that I'm looking at things, it's not that surprising that I was only responsible for one of those dishes. After all, what doesn't taste better when someone else cooks it?

Some of these dishes were amazingly straightforward. Sliced chicken on waffles? Yep, but it was dressed up with a special sauce. And believe me, it was unexpectedly good. I'm now planning on having waffle sammies on the regular. And asparagus wrapped in dough and prosciutto? It was a party for your mouth.

If you want to know how to make the recipes, all of those photos are links. Click away, my friend.

Anyway, I'll give you a rundown tomorrow of what I was responsible for, and the tips I learned from trying these dishes out myself. Stay tuned!
