I’m drooling just typing that title. This stuff is seriously good. I developed the recipe after dining out one night and eating the most delicious creamy pasta dish I had ever encountered. It was served beside bread with rosemary baked right in and I came home determined to replicate the taste combo. I think I [...]
I thought seriously about not posting this recipe. Not because it isn’t a great recipe, but because it isn’t a very photogenic one. As I snapped the photos of the finished dish, I couldn’t help but think that not one of you out there is going to try this, because based on looks alone, I wouldn’t [...]
I’ve been trying to think of somthing new to do with all this Zucchini that is overtaking my kitchen. We have made my Zucchini Au Gratin a few times over the past week, and although it IS tasty, we are ready for something new. I gave away a big bag of Zucchini to a friend today, but I still [...]
I made these again tonight and asked my son, after he ate one of these muffins warm from the oven, what I should name this post. He came up with the “So Berry Delicious” thing. I guess that is endorsement enough! These muffins rival any gluten-filled blueberry muffins out there. It took all my willpower not to fire up [...]
Update 11/18/2011 – Here is a message I received from my good friend Julie about making this crust right on a sandstone:
“I made the delicious pizza crust the other day, and I wanted to post that I had no problems making it directly on my sandstone. This is a [...]
Way healthier than any store-bought version, this simple Granola makes a great topping for fruit and yogurt, ice cream or served straight-up in a bowl with fruit and milk for breakfast. It’s versatile, too! You can substitute pecans and maple syrup for the almonds and honey, or add seeds, coconut or dried fruit to the mix. Just be sure to [...]
I like pickles.
But not the mushy kind that you find in the middle aisles in the grocery store.
I only like the crunchy refrigerated ones.
And the best pickles are the ones I make myself from my own garden’s pickling cukes.
Refrigerator Pickles are very easy to make.
You just need pickling cukes…
Kosher Salt, Peppercorns, Garlic, Vinegar and [...]
What goes better together than tomatoes and basil? This super simple dish just says summertime, and is perfect to bring along to your next picnic/potluck, or to serve beside your next grilled dinner.
Tomatoes, Basil, Red Wine Vinegar, Olive Oil, Salt and Pepper
First, cut tomatoes in half, then in wedges, then in half again.
Place in serving [...]
In part three of our Indian Night Trifecta, we’ll be tackling the simplest of the three dishes. This doesn’t even require step-by-step photos, so my obvious lack of coordination in terms of cooking and remembering to take pics at the same time won’t even come into play.
Green Beans (about a pound), washed and trimmed
Canola or Olive [...]
Before this Indian Cauliflower came along, we’d eat our Spicy Lentil Dal with our Spicy Green Beans (recipe to follow soon). It was a great meal, but the discovery of this sweet and flavorful cauliflower dish completes it perfectly, and now my husband won’t let me forego this dish on Indian Night, even if I’m feeling lazy.
