Over the summer, I cooked a lot of meals for just me. I also went for a period without eating any dairy or meat products, so found a lot of relatively simple, vegetarian meals that were tasty, good for you, and easy to do on small scale. Since I was on my own for dinner … Continue reading K: Quick and Easy Dinner
Also known as, I’m making swans! Kat of The Bobwhites was our August 2012 Daring Baker hostess who inspired us to have fun in creating pate a choux shapes, filled with crème patisserie or Chantilly cream. We were encouraged to create swans or any shape we wanted and to go crazy with filling flavors allowing … Continue reading K: Filled Pate a Choux Swans
This is gross. Thanks (I think?) to K’s mom for the link. Update: Here are some more, weird but less gross ice cream flavours, again courtesy of K’s mom. Parmesan gelato? Sign me up!
Yesterday was a beautiful day at the Farmers’ Market! It was lovely and cool, and full of some of the early fall produce. This week features some new produce for us: Chinese squash (which I’ve never heard of before, but it looked cool, so I bought it!), a heart of gold squash (which is like … Continue reading K: Farmers Market
So, uh, I’m pretty sure this post is the reason that K is squealing with glee in the corner right now. Because I can’t think of anything else that would be making that happen. Um, right, so menu planning. I don’t like it. I don’t want to do it, and pretty much ever since I’ve … Continue reading The Menu Plan: First Installment
This is officially the last CSA post of the season! It seems like the 18 week season flew by, and now we’re starting to head in to winter. In honor of the last week, I thought I’d throw up a picture of our pickup location. You can’t quite tell from the picture, but there have … Continue reading K: CSA September 28
Or maybe biscones? Our Daring Bakers challenge this month was to go back to the basics and make biscuits/scones at home. Audax Artifex was our January 2012 Daring Bakers’ host. Aud worked tirelessly to master light and fluffy scones (a/k/a biscuits) to help us create delicious and perfect batches in our own kitchens! What I … Continue reading K: Sco-biscuits
Saturday morning at the farmers’ market was lovely – great weather, and excellent looking fall produce. We hit a few really cold days at the beginning of the week, but now we’re back to highs in the 70s, and it’s wonderful. Our haul was pretty small this week, so this is just going to be … Continue reading K: Farmers’ Market Week 20
I tried to make adobo once. I didn’t have any garlic or coconut milk, so I substituted chili powder and 1%. Needless to say, it wasn’t one of my better dishes.
As part of our CSA shipment this month, we got a big bunch of kale. I’d never had kale before, but it has a really nice flavour to it. It’s a little bit bitterer than normal lettuce, but not too bad. Anyways, K’s mom sent us this recipe for baked kale chips. It sounded a … Continue reading D: Baked Kale Chips
