My Bree Van de Kamp Dinner!

The cast of "Desperate Housewives" with Bree holding a pie, as usual

Hey guys,

I have such an obsession with Desperate Housewives that I purchased the “Desperate Housewives Cookbook,” which has recipes catered to each character’s personality—stuff you think they would cook. For example, Bree, the elegant redhead, has mostly complex, fancy, and rich dishes next to her name, while Susan has easy and quick dishes (basically stuff you can throw into a baking dish and cook).

 On the other hand, Gabrielle has spicier dishes because of her Mexican background, and Lynette has many tips and recipes for mothers, so you can make things that your kids would like :)

Lynette (Felicity Huffman) has to always keep her large family fed ;)

As for me, I’m starting out by preparing a dinner tonight, a meal of the fancier sort à la Bree Van de Kamp because what woman does not want to be an elegant, classy lady like Bree who can cook like her?

Right now, I’m prepping the Tomato Bisque. I hope it will taste good! I’ll be back later when I start cooking that and post a photo =) Then on to the main dish, which is called Chicken Cutlets Saltimbocca, which, by the way, means literally “jump in the mouth,” so I hope the food “jumps in the mouth,” so to speak. Ha! I have to say that the Tomato Bisque smells really good, so I hope everyone will like it :)

Cooking the Saltimbocca wasn’t too difficult, just chicken cutlets with sage leaves and prosciutto on top, cooked on the skillet and topped with a marsala sauce. It was really hard work to finish making the soup because after pureeing it, I had to try to push all the liquid out through the strainer with a ladle…

Just ate my dinner :) Everyone loved it, it was a big hit, and I am so surprised by how good it was! The soup was really, really delicious. I was sad when I was done with it, haha, and the chicken was way more flavorful than I would have thought. I feel so conceited to LOVE my food so much, but damn it was good!! I think I will cook more often ;) Thank you, Bree! Haha
