Tiny Taste Tester Special Edition 10.18.19

Welcome to the first Special Edition of the Tiny Taste Tester.  It’s special because we combined culinary pursuits with face making exercises.  The Tiny Taste Tester ate everything we put in front of her.  I would call that a success.

The relative success of making faces training is not for the trainer to decide.

High-protein Ricotta Pancakes — Hurry The Food Up

High-protein ricotta pancakes. Even just writing that sentence makes me happy. We love pancakes, and when they’re simple, tasty and packed with protein we love them even more. Protein is important, and many people don’t get enough. If you’re not sure exactly how much protein you need then there’s a free guide and meal plan…

I thought I’d re-post this post from Hurry The Food Up featuring several ricotta pancake recipes.  When I mentioned to a friend I gave a sample of my Ricotta Buttermilk Pancakes to the Tiny Taste Tester I got the following response:

“Ricotta what?

PANCAKES!  You have to start them young.  Hopefully if you raise ’em right they get to the peanut butter and pancake pinnacle of pancake heaven.

Tiny Taste Tester Tries Ted’s

I moved to Texas when I was 25 years old. It didn’t take long for me to develop a taste for Tex Mex. If you’re from Texas you crave Tex Mex. If you’re from Texas and you find yourself living in Oklahoma, you still crave Tex Mex because the restaurants in this state don’t make or serve Tex Mex. We have Okie Mex. Some restaurants do Okie Mex better than others. One of those places is Ted’s. The original Ted’s location near NW 63 and May Avenue in OKC opened in 1991. There are multiple locations in the OKC metro and the closest to us is 0.5 miles from the house. For the final installment of our Tiny Taste Tester series from this weekend we present:

The Tiny Taste Tester Ted’s Review

Tortilla chips. Very small pieces, thin, salty. Good chips. Four stars.

Small hand torn pieces of fresh flour tortillas dipped in queso. Each piece was savored for several minutes. Four stars.

Smashed Mexican Spiced Potatoes. Green chilies provide the predominant flavor profile. OK but not her favorite. She made a face. Two stars.

Refried beans. Mild flavor. Very tasty example. Four stars.

Guacomole. It’s green but doesn’t taste like any other green mush that comes in small jars. I don’t know what this is but I like it and I like it a lot! Five stars.

Overall 3.8 Stars. Tiny Taste Tester Approved.
