Thanks for giving my pregnant self a new craving, and I haven't even tried it! Love the idea of shrimp in there too
@monopod, if you put the fish stick in a cabbage leaf, it's like having the slaw without the chopping, aka "lazy mommy's fish tacos" around here
Just made this as a test run for a baby shower desert, and it was great! I used home pasteurized egg whites (doubled the recipe) and I still got the nice fluffy texture.
I was inspired by the buttercream post and figured if I could whip yolks to safe over simmering water, the whites would work too. Held at 145 for 10 minutes with a bit of sugar.
Smoked tofu is pretty fun to play with later. I will put a block or 2 on after I pull of the whatever I was smoking (on a weber kettle) while we eat and it gets such a nice flavor twist for a meal later in the week
I would love to see more vegan recipes which don't require mushrooms, cause I just can't stand them, or nuts, as we are a nut free home due to allergies. So many of your vegan recipes we can't have, which is rather frustrating.
Made these and added about a cup of semi sweet chocolate chips as my husband was skeptical of just a ginger cookie. Very tasty. I will make these again.
Something tells me I will be messing around with this and a lemon meringue cake will be the result. And a well written article too!
I'm in charge of deserts for SIL's baby shower, and she LOVES chocolate and coffee. Except she's GF due to celiacs, so I switched out to King Arthur's GF all purpose for a test drive. Tastes great, but the thing overflowed like crazy while baking (might have been related to letting a 3 year old help with the baking powder) I only had semi-sweet chocolate on hand, and it's still chocolaty, but I will make it again with the "good" stuff.
Help My Apartment has a kitchen!
Do you think a basil and thyme combo would work instead of the sage? Sage and I just don't agree. . . which is a bummer
Yum! Almost a BBQ sauce flavor I wasn't expecting, but SOOO good. Left out the brown sugar for a more tangy sauce, and didn't bother with the blender as I was worried my vitamin might over process. Topping for burgers tomorrow's dinner for sure!
Roasted radishes. My kiddo would eat a pound if I would let her.
Smoke a turkey breast, monitoring my temps with a british racing Green thermapen.
@kathleen: I like greek basil in grain salads. It's not as overwhelming a flavor as "regular" basil can be. I have a plant every year just for that purpose.
Fresh picked raspberries
Space permitting, I try to keep the sandwich bread in the freezer so Mr Ecca can pull out the 2 slices he needs and the rest stays fine. Defrosts by lunch and the rest of the loaf lasts longer.
I was making most of our bread from scratch, but then the kiddo happened, we moved (new place just not good for kneading) and he has more lunch meetings out/catered, so we aren't going through bread as fast. It's cheaper to have a freezer loaf which doesn't spoil than tossing half a loaf of homemade every week.
The easiest way to store cut up watermelon/cantaloupe/pineapple is a cheap plastic pitcher. A 2 quart holds a pineapple or a cantaloupe and a 3 will hold about 2/3 of a standard seedless watermelon.
I use the core pieces to infuse vodka. I don't like to eat it, so now there's less waste and more beverages
As it's hard to find here, I have to ration my Crabbies. This might be worth the splurge
Most VFWs have a Friday fish fry in WI. The night before my Grandma's funeral (Lomira, WI) we were at the VWF, where my parents' wedding reception had been almost 40 years ago, having their friday fish. It was like coming home. I'm sure there are better ones out there, but it was about being together with friends/family over good (fried) food and a great way to remember her. Also neat to teach my English aunt about fish fries. My now very urban uncle is still a farm kid at heart
I used the marinade/rub on boneless skinless chicken breasts, and we have a Winner! Going to try it with pork chops too, at some point.
The sauce, my fault as I did a lot of substitutions, it was just a bit not our tastes. Going to try it as a spread for burgers tomorrow. Mr Ecca liked the chicken so much he didn't want to add the sauce.
Add another vote against social media replacing talk. Not on social media, and SE isn't going to convince me to give it a go
Bought one before this review came out and it's really handy, especially when trying to keep gluten free utensils away from cross contamination (my SIL has celiacs, I want her to want to eat my food. . .)
Water. If we are at a beer place, I'm the DD. I've tasted, smelled, so many, I've found it's not worth the calories. I'll make up a cocktail at home later
If you are the evening's DD, married to a beer drinker, I appreciate a good by the glass. Since I'm only having one glass, it's portion control
