This is inspired by a place by my work that does something similar, but with pear compote.

Ingredients:

* Sharp white cheddar (mine came from CostCo, the Coastal stuff)
* Rosemary bread (mine came from Trader Joe's)
* Lemon curd (another thing from Trader Joe's)
* Butter (I did unsalted, the cheddar is plenty salty enough)

Tools:

* Toaster Oven
* Frying pan and oven

Steps:

* Lightly toast one side of the rosemary bread in the oven
* One one slice of rosemary bread, put a pile of chopped up white cheddar chunks on the toasted side. Put it back into the toaster oven until the cheese gets pretty melty.
* While that's going on, spread lemon curd on the other piece of bread, on the toasted side.
* Put a pat of butter in your frying pan and melt it
* Take your melted cheesy bread out of the toaster oven, put both pieces together so the cheese of one side is against the lemon curd of the other
* Put your sandwich into the pan, swish it around, flip it to the other side--this will make sure that both sides have butter as you pan toast.
* Toast both sides of your sandwich in the pan with the butter, flipping as necessary. When it's toasted to your liking, put it on a plate.
* Tada! Fancy grilled cheese.

This is a vague recipification of a thing I throw together for the majority of my lunches because it will make Sunday dinner and lots of leftovers. It is good if you like lemony things and need something that makes a ton of hearty leftovers with little effort. I use a large 6 quart slow cooker to manage the following, but it can also be baked in the oven for around 45 minutes without the rice involved.

Instructions ahoy )

There are a few steps but this is fun to make with the kids.

Hi everybody,
I first found this recipie in Martin Yan's Culinary Journey Through China  and modified it to suit my family's tastes. Like most Chinese food recipies there are a few steps and it behoves you to do all the prep work before you start cooking.  I start this in a frying pan and finish in the oven to avoid burning the crust before the center is done.  I also soak my chicken in buttermilk for 12 hours first which tenderises the chicken and ensures it stays moist through the cooking.

From the Co-op's homemade cookbook binder.

Wash and de-stem 1 bunch KALE; chop finely. Pour on 1 TBS OLIVE OIL and 1/4 TBS SALT. Roll up your sleeves and toss and squeeze the kale until it wilts, about 3-5 minutes or so. Let sit 30 minutes.

Dice 1/4 RED ONION. Whisk the juice of a LEMON into a TSP DIJON MUSTARD a pinch of SALT, a grind of PEPPER, and the ONION. Let sit 15 minutes.

Slice or dice 1 AVOCADO & salt lightly; toast 1/2 c[up] ALMONDS and chop; grate/shred 1 peeled CARROT and 1-2 peeled BEETS.

Whisk enough olive oil into mustard-lemond mixture to make a dressing. Add avocado, almonds, and root vegetables to kale and toss. Dress to taste.

Variations:
(1) Use 3-4 beets instead of the carrot. Substitute some grapefruit or orange juice for the lemon juice, and add the flesh of a grapefruit or orange.
(2) Add scallions, sesame, and toasted nori; make the dressing from mirin, sesame oil, tamari, and rice wine vinegar; substitute a very little ginger for the onion.
(3) Substitute for the root vegetables a diced tomato or two and some shaved parmesan.

Every since finding this recipie on BBC Good Food, it's become our household's go-to recipe for cheesecake. It's light and not at all cloying and, bonus, if you can get quark cheese, this is lower in fat and calories than a lot of other cheesecakes.

While the estimated time is quite long, this is largely to let the cheesecake set -- this can be easily done in the evening and the cheesecake left to set overnight.
