I got this idea from a Gwyneth Paltrow cookbook, and while I doubt my Publix pita bread would meet with her approval, it's a really good idea. I can think of all sorts of modifications. Next time if I feel like getting fancy, I may try adding some shredded chicken and spinach.

In the ancestry of this recipe are a Nigella Lawson dish and a Leanne Brown dish, combined because I really needed to use up both sets of ingredients.

These are an incredibly simple recipe I acquired from a family friend a long time ago and are always super popular at parties: they're a small, nibbly form of protein, which is often not a big feature of most party foods.

They don't reheat very well but they taste just fine cold or room temperature. (You can reheat them once and they're fine while hot, but they turn to leather if you let them cool back off at all.)

Despite the spiciness of the sausage, I have not found the end results to be spicy for most people. The cheese cuts through it quite a lot and it seems like you lose some of the sausage flavour if it doesn't have some kick to it.

This makes about 5 servings. It's sort of like vegetarian harira, which means I'm going to be disappointed in the way the frozen portions turn out, I suspect.

I made this salad for supper tonight, as I do quite often in the summer, and it occurred to me that I could also post it here. My version is a slight evolution (or more accurately devolution?) of this 2008 Canadian Living recipe. I also use the dressing/vinaigrette on normal salads.

Cheap, easy, stores well, and can be jazzed up with further additions to vary latter servings - this recipe is one of my fallback staples.

ingredients )

Instructions:
Heat oil in heavy-bottomed pot (you'll need a lid later) and saute onion and garlic until translucent. Add ginger, tumeric and curry powder and saute a few minutes longer. (Can add more oil if necessary.) Add rice and saute for a few more minutes to coat the rice. Add the lentils, stock, raisins, and sunflower seeds, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes.

Excellent served with yogurt, or with Waldorf salad.

Extras my mom recommends:
Would be good with butternut squash...roasted in chunks (with parsnips perhaps? ) or bake the squash, scoop it out and whip it with a bit of orange juice and nutmeg. Saute some dark greens (chard, spinach) with olive oil, garlic, pinenuts as a second vegetable.

Sweetened condensed milk is one of the vastly under-rated wonders of the universe. Cow's milk, reduced in volume by removing some of the water, and with sugar added (both as a preservative, and to create an early type of infant formula), then canned, had many advantages before refrigeration became common. But the processing serendipitously produced a mixture that simplifies making delicious custards. Here are two recipes. Read on... )

This is my go-to muffin recipe at the moment, but every time I've made it so far I've engineered it from a semi-related recipe for much richer and fancier lemon-berry-streusel muffins. It occurred to me that I could write my version down, and if I was going to write it down, why not here?

Dietary and accessibility notes: These are not vegan muffins, and unfortunately, I don't have the vegan baking expertise to suggest how they could become vegan. The recipe requires some stirring/whisking and spooning batter into muffin cups, but nothing so demanding that I feel my lack of an electric mixer, although it would certainly be possible to use one.

Quick, easy, moist cookies adapted from a double-chocolate recipe from the West Wind Pony Club Cookbook.

Makes 30-36 cookies.

Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly grease two cookie sheets.

Cream together:

2/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 1/2 cups brown sugar

Add and mix vigorously:

1 Tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs

Sift together in a separate bowl:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose white flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

Mix dry ingredients into wet a bit at a time, stirring well.

Add:

1 cup pecan pieces

Drop 2" balls into cookie sheets, leaving 2" spaces between cookies.

Bake 9 minutes… cookies will still be soft and a bit shiny when done. Wait maybe 5 minutes then transfer with a thin spatula or other thin lifter to wire rack.

NB: i really can't estimate the serving numbers on this one. No matter how much I scale the recipe down it is always More Than Warranted. Maybe 5-6 as a side dish at these measurements.

So I accidentally tipped WAY TOO MUCH rosemary into the first stage of a recipe that called for thyme, and the result was amazing.

This is a moist, dense, not-too-sweet cake — a birthday favourite around here. Note that this recipe includes raw egg whites. Serves at least 12.

These are adapted from Banana-walnut bread from the Bon Appetit Cookbook edited by Barbara Fairchild, but I wanted muffins and can't be bothered with buttermilk and shortening. The yogurt makes them moist and chewy.

Makes 24 muffins. No special equipment required. Contains egg, dairy and flour.

This is a simplified and budget-ised version of Melissa Clark's Rosh Hashana recipe at the New York Times. (Which, by a co-incidence of menu planning, I have cooked on the first night of same. Happy New Year, anyone observing!) Southern hemisphere folks might want to save it up for late summer / early autumn, when plums are a thing.
