Due to recent developments in my life, I won't be getting home until late, and I thought the slow cooker would be a perfect way to still get a delicious meal on the table for our family to share. The problem is that all the recipes I can find are extremely minimalist, retro, and unappealing. I am usually comfortable improvising without recipes, but I'm unfamiliar with crockpot cooking and basically at a total loss. Any gourmet slow cooker recipes you would be willing to share?
I'm making David Lebovitz chocolate ice cream for a party tonight, but I guess I thickened the custard too much b/c when I opened the fridge it was a totally congealed mousse-like substance. Anything I can do?
I recently blended up a batch of homemade hummus for which I bought a large container of tahini, and now I'm at a loss for what to do with the rest...
Yesterday a post advertising a contest to win a 250 dollar whole foods giftcard was removed from the site before I had a chance to record the info. Does anyone else remember what site is sponsoring this contest?
There are few foods I absolutely won't eat, but prime among them is that disgusting concoction known as mayo. I have tried everything from the lowest quality (miracle whip...shudder) to the highest quality (home-made aiolis), yet any semblence of mayo never fails to make me gag. However, I've been DYING to devour some fresh, crunchy summer slaws and would appreciate any FABULOUS mayo-free recipes! thanks!
I am creating a fathers day feast including:
duck breast in wine reduction with candied kumquats
potato, celery root, and chanterelle gratin
and some sort of vegetable side which I cannot decide upon...
I would like something sort of light and fresh as the gratin provides enough richness to the plate. My only idea is a cauliflower and green olive salad (with capers, parsley, and sherry vinegar), but I'm not sure if this will clash with the rest of the meal. Do you think this would harmonize with the other dishes sufficiently? Any better suggestions?
