12 green grapes? Greens and peas? Round foods? Marzipan cakes? Do you have any New Year's food superstitions? Do you know their origins?
I'm not a snobby cook at all - I use cans of beans and sometimes I'll use frozen vegetables (but only peas and corn!) - but I was thinking the other day that there are a few things I'm picky about, and when I see a recipe that doesn't specify these things, I don't trust the whole cookbook. For instance, if it calls for "lentils" but doesn't tell you what kind, or calls for "curry powder" rather than a mix of specific spices (unless it gives you a recipe for curry powder!) I know there's no real rhyme or reason to these things, but there it is. Do you have certain things you're snobby about? or pet peeves that will spoil a recipe for you?
My son invented this pizza with his own spicy sauce. The secret ingredient is toasted beets! So it's called "beezza." It was absolutely delicious, and his little brother (who doesn't like beets!) happily ate 4 slices.
It's always fun to make pizza with little ones, and this was the most fun, because it was his recipe!
We recently saw an Uruguayan/Argentinian movie in which a character ordered pizza with faina. I was so intrigued I did a bit of research. Turns out faina is a baked chickpea flour batter, with lots of herbs and black pepper. I made a pizza and some faina to go with it. Delicious together!
Has anybody tried/heard of anything similar? It was such a new & interesting idea to me!
I bought a bunch of garlic, and it turns out to have many tiny tiny cloves. I can't see me peeling and chopping each one. Does anybody have a suggestion for using them up in a more efficient manner?
