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.

I made what I consider a delicious batch of vegetarian friend rice for supper tonight, and since I was writing it up anyway in the hope of being able to reproduce it in the future, I thought I'd share it here as well.

Dietary note: I made this with egg, so it's not vegan, but it would probably be pretty tasty without egg, with extra cabbage, or with some crumbled tofu.

Accessibility note: This dish involves several preparation steps including pre-cooking the rice and pre-making the sauce. It also requires chopping (although you could use pre-chopped or grated carrots and pre-shredded cabbage to cut down on that) and ten to fifteen minutes of standing over a hot wok or skillet stirring.

The sauce I used come from my favorite cookbook, Audrey Alsterburg and Wanda Urbanowicz, ReBar Modern Food Cookbook, and it's great for general stir-fry purposes too. Here's the recipe:

This is less a recipe to make on its own as a meal idea to be made for when you're batch cooking in the slow cooker or stove top or oven, and are browning huge amounts of mince (ground meat) in the morning or around noon and are noticing you need to eat but also need to finish the prep for the batch cooking DAMMIT!

This meal idea is low-spoon, almost-instant, high-protein, doesn't dirty any more dishes except for a fork, requires only 2 EGGS in additional ingredients, and is pretty much guaranteed to fix your hunger pangs within 5 minutes, give or take.

This is a very very very fine pie. I'm not a huge chocolate person, but the texture of this pie works for me. It's a pie where you can hold a slice of in your hand as you run out the door in the morning.

Also! It uses 3 eggs, and the mixture that you get from blowing an egg out to dye its shell for Easter is just exactly right for this pie!

-1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
-3 squares (1 oz each) baker's (unsweetened) chocolate
-1 cup sugar
-1/3 cup dark corn syrup
-1/4 cup flour
-1 tsp vanilla
-1/4 tsp salt
-3 eggs
-graham cracker crust

In a 2 quart saucepan over very low heat, stirring constantly, melt 1/2 cup butter and 3 oz baker's chocolate. Turn off heat. Stir in 1 cup sugar, 1/3 cup dark Karo corn syrup, 1/4 cup flour, 1 tsp vanilla, and 1/4 tsp salt. Stir in 3 eggs, slightly beaten. Pour into 9 inch graham cracker pie crust. Bake in 350 F oven 30-35 min (or until filling is puffed and center is firm).

If you wanted a fudge nut brownie pie, stir in 1/2 cup chopped walnuts before pouring into crust.

It uses only 1 pot! It takes about 10 minutes to prep!

Modified recipe from upstate NY, USA. Original recipe author listed as 'Mrs. Gary Brockway'; changes are my own mother's.


1/3 cup shortening (e.g. butter)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 bananas mashed (the riper the better)
1-2 carrots, peeled and grated
handful of walnuts, grated
handful of raisins
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking power
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cup flour

***For a dessert version, substitute diced dried apricots for all or most of the raisins, and it becomes apricot banana bread.***

Good with peanut butter, cream cheese, butter, and cheese of most any kind, or just plain. The carrot gives it its characteristic golden color that distinguishes it from ordinary grey banana bread.

ETA 9/15: for an even more dessert variation, combine this recipe with the topping + method from [personal profile] kaberett's excellent variation on upside down pineapple cake:

(same ingredients as above for batter)


3.33 Tbsp butter
5 Tbsp dark brown sugar
1tsp cinnamon
splash of Cointreau/rum/whatever (optional)
1 tin of pineapple slices or chunks


Set oven pre-heating to 325°F and grease up & flour a 9 x 9 pan.

Place topping ingredients (except pineapple slices) in the pan and stick in the oven.

While that's heating, getting bubbly, etc, prepare the banana bread batter as in instructions above. Once the batter's ready, remove the tin/tray/whatever from the oven, mix the bubbling butter-sugar mixture to combine, and spread the pineapple slices out across the bottom. (You can drink the juice. If you are not that way inclined, you can add it to the other topping ingredients before the tray goes into the oven.) Then pour over the batter, spread out as you would normally, and bake for approximately 45 60+ minutes, until golden brown & set. (Knife can be inserted and removed cleanly or only pulling up particulate, not liquidy stuff.)

 Its christmastime in the south, and the heat is afoot. But whether its 20 degrees or 70 (wahoo, Texas) outside, you can always enjoy this family classic: Corn Casserole.

Its about the easiest and most delicious thing you can make, and makes a fabulous side dish to go along with your Christmas Ham... I hear some families make turkey, but in my family, you eat (deep fried) turkey only for Thanksgiving. I'm sure the casserole'd taste awesome with both.

I'm doing up the grocery list for next week's menu planning, and thought I'd share one of my fav vegetarian meals, a Leek, Pepper and Pea "Tortilla" (we usually call it a frittata). It's basically an egg & veggie dish where the eggs are much firmer than in most egg dishes. Also, it has sweet potatoes!

I got this recipe from "You Are What You Eat: The Meal Planner That Will Change Your Life!", by Carina Norris. It's on page 57.

The recipe is typed up with random asides because I'm bitter. I've also got a version without the random asides.

 So, I'm bored out of my mind for various reasons, and go on a journey of discovery through our less-used cabinets. What do I find? An almost empty, still good bag of cornmeal that I haven't touched in far too long.

Due to lack of cheese to make jalapeno cornbread, I settled for cornmeal pancakes!

Successful experiment below... )

Last seen here, a recipe for chocolate/berry goat's cheesecake. This is the actual as-made recipe tonight, a bit tweaked from the last version. I cannot declare it a total success yet as it's still sitting in the oven but the skewer came out pretty clean and the top felt right, so I do think it came out right.

Follow the yellow brick cut, for recipe: )

Alternatively, you could use 2 oz. unsweetened baking chocolate, rather than the cocoa/oil, or even semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Next time, I will probably up the lemon juice to 1 tbsp. but overall, this is the best consistency I've gotten yet! This has been an ongoing experiment. :D

ETA: Oh, I forgot to mention a few things. This recipe is for a 6" springform pan. Also, you could substitute just about any berry or berry combination you like, and you can leave either the chocolate or preserves out -- they do add some volume, but not enough to matter too much.

This cake. I have quite a love affair with this one. It can be a bit dense, but the older I get, my love for it grows at the sam-ish rate. It's a recipe from my paternal grandmother, who would bake one every year without fail for my dad's birthday, since it was his favourite. She doesn't bake any more, which is a shame, but she handed us some of her recipes.

Prep time: 15 minutes, Cooking time: 30 minutes.

Genovese Bread )

* I have absolutely no idea whether or not it is a Genovese speciality. It's what my Grandmother and the rest of my family call it.

** You can totally cheat and not foam the eggs white (add whole eggs in step 2 instead). But the resulting cake will be denser, and will feel heavier in your stomach. Either way, it's quite tasty.

This is a really simple food, but so easy and quick and delicious that my roommate and I eat it at least once a week for breakfast. It fulfills many nutritional requirements, and is vegetarian (if you eat eggs).

Leafy Dark Greens Quiche
Serves approximately 6

Note: This recipe was cobbled together from bits and pieces of four other recipes (two from this comm!) and then completely changed and modified by yours truly. The measurements are far from exact, and, unfortunately, this time are strictly American (generally I work in metric or provide both) as my references were in Imperial measurements.

Details this way... )

So I've been meaning to post this for ... about a month, I think. At least. Um. Oops?

This is the recipe for my dad's sweet potato souffle, which is not ... really ... the same as his mother's version. Both (and a half) are included here. This is vegetarian if your working definition does not exclude eggs or butter.
