Crunchy vs. Creamy


Crunch! That first crisp bite awakens you. Your senses are on fire....the fragrant scent, the sound of the crisp crunch, the feel of the texture in your mouth. The crispy crunch is alluring. It beckons you. It's addictive. It's so pleasurable that you just can't stop. It's just SO DARN CRUNCHY!

You lick your lips in anticipation......the creaminess is calling to you, waiting to bring you comfort and total satisfaction. You take your first bite and the luxuriously silky smooth texture rolls around on your tongue, dancing on your taste buds. You close your eyes and savor it. It's SO CREAMY! It warms your heart. It gives you peace. It brings you total pleasure.

Crunchy vs. Creamy
. Could you pick if you had to? Would one win out over the other?


Maybe you're feeling greedy and want to indulge in both!
Crunchy or Creamy. Crunchy and Creamy together in one dish. There's sure to be a Mark Bittman recipe for you! Just cook it up and post it by Sunday, September 5th. Don't forget to add your link to Mr. Linky and leave a comment so that we can all see your fabulous recipe!

I hope Mark doesn't read my blog (hahaha, like he would). I had to call him out on a major recipe step omission!

lexi said...

I hope Mark doesn't see my post, LOL. I had to call him out on an important step that was missing from my chosen recipe.

Natashya KitchenPuppies said...

I left mine open to interpretation.

Hey Chaya! I'm sorry, I had to remove your link because you used a Taste of Home recipe, not a Mark Bittman recipe. I do love sweet potatoes, though ;)
