I have been asked to film a 6-part series of Web-isodes for Hood Dairy. I love Hood. We New Englanders stick together. Hood has been a New England company that has been around for over 100 years.  I have been using Hood Dairy products since I was a little girl so it is an honor that they asked me to film this. Hood requested that I use sour cream in every recipe. Sour cream is a great ingredient to add to food, it is occasionally used as a substitute for mayonnaise, which I also love but it can be very heavy at times. Saturday I filmed the Web-episodes and we did all the recipes in a total of 7 hours and then I even added a seventh recipe, which is crazy. Everything went so smooth, no technical problems and the crew was amazing. Let me tell you what I came up with… The first two recipes were “party” or “game day” recipes. Those were lamb sliders with a sour cream tatziki sauce (because I’m a Greek) and chili empanadas. Then, on to side dishes. I made spring broccoli salad and an orzo and asparagus salad. Hood wanted an entrée where sour cream is the star, so I decided to bring back an old favorite – chicken paprika with a beautiful sour cream wine sauce.  For desert I made mixed-berry sour cream Panna Cotta. The  seventh recipe was shrimp scampi using sour cream in the sauce. All the recipes came out great and the crew was thankful they got to eat a lot of delicious food. I just want to thank Hood Dairy for thinking of me and I will let you know when they are on-line and ready to go. Thank you Hood!
