I haven’t been so attentive to my sourdough lately, so I had a lot that hadn’t been fed recently. I love this recipe because it calls for two whole cups of unfed sourdough. It is great when you need to use a lot up. The recipe made enough pancakes for my boyfriend and I to… Continue reading Easy Sourdough Pancakes
I grew up eating Indian food, and rasgulla is one of my favorite Indian desserts. They are usually for special occasions, because they take a bit of work, but they are delicious. Unfortunately, I forgot to take photos of the final plated product, because I was too busy eating. The process photos will give you… Continue reading Rasgulla: Indian Cheese Dessert
Purist’s Bagels I made some delicious bagels a few days ago. I found the recipe online, it seemed pretty straight forward and authentic. They are really good. I definitely recommend making this recipe: Jewish Purist’s Bagels My Delicious Snack I got up this morning, brought two of my friends to the airport, bought some… Continue reading Bagels!
Lactic Cheese I’ve bought a new book! It is Home Cheese Making: Recipes for 75 homemade cheeses by Ricki Carroll and it is excellent! The book not only gives many recipes for soft, hard, italian, whey, and mold cured cheeses, but it also teaches technique, and teaches the importance of knowing where your food comes from.… Continue reading Say Cheese!
Ain’t She Purdy! Yesterday, I realized that I had three apples that had to be used. Instead of making my usually butter loaded tart or pie, I decided to try to make something delicious and low fat. What I came up with was both special and delicious. It still isn’t 100% guilt free, but it… Continue reading Apple Cinnamon Bread Pie
These are DELICIOUS. They are my favorite cookies, for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. They also happen to be vegan, and very good for you. They can be made wheat and gluten free. Talk about a wonderful recipe! And the best part is, they don’t have that odd “I’m missing something delicious” taste that so… Continue reading Thumbprint Cookies
Poultry Stock is one of those things that I’m always needing when I cook. There are many good organic low-sodium stocks you can buy, but nothing quite tastes the same as making your own. Don’t be overwhelmed, it is actually quite easy. This is a good staple to have around the house at all times.… Continue reading Poultry Stock
I made two different batches of eggnog this Thanksgiving. One was a cooked eggnog, since I didn’t want to be responsible for feeding my whole family raw eggs, and one was made with almond milk for the lactose free among us. Here is my recipe for cooked eggnog; it really tasted like drinking custard. What a… Continue reading Cooked Eggnog and Almond Cooked Eggnog
This is a rich sauce. I serve it over green beans for Thanksgiving, in place of the more traditional casserole. I think it would also be delicious over baked chicken breast. You could eliminate the sherry, but it really won’t be the same. It gives a lovely perfume, and the alcohol cooks away. So good… Continue reading Mushroom Cream Sauce
Easy Roast Chicken Roasting poultry the old-fashioned way in a large pan is very beautiful, but it takes a lot of basting, and it gets your oven greasy. One of modern technology’s greatest inventions (okay that’s perhaps a slight exaggeration) is the Oven Bag. It is a nifty way to cook a bird without the… Continue reading Roast Turkey and Roast Chicken
