For those of you who didn’t figure it out (hopefully that’s nobody), yesterday’s post was an April Fool’s joke. (Seriously, did you not watch the video of my thumb being sewn back on?) I still have all 10 digits. So far. Though I do have to say, I was pretty proud of the site banner … Continue reading D: April Fool’s!
If one of K’s favourite things about fall are the apples, one of mine has to be the squash. Butternut squash and pumpkin, to be specific. So, I thought that I would share one of my most favourite recipes, for butternut squash soup. The first time I ever had butternut squash soup was at a … Continue reading D: Butternut Squash Soup
And all through the house No other creature was stirring Not even the spouse The ingredients were stored In the fridge with great care With hope they’d be used For tomorrow’s affair The menu was planned Not a detail ignored There were drinks in the fridge Awaiting to be poured And as the sleepy awoke … Continue reading K: ‘Twas the day before Christmas
When we were in undergrad at Harvey Mudd College, one of the big traditions of the on-campus dining hall was to have a huge Halloween dinner, where the dining hall would be decked out in ghosts and spiders and motion-sensing zombies, the chefs and kitchen staff were dressed up, and — of course — the … Continue reading D: How to make Halloween food right
Dave and Linda from Monkeyshines in the Kitchen chose Soufflés as our November 2010 Daring Cooks’ Challenge! Dave and Linda provided two of their own delicious recipes plus a sinfully decadent chocolate soufflé recipe adapted from Gordon Ramsay’s recipe found at the BBC Good Food website. I’ve made a couple of soufflés before, so I … Continue reading D: Pumpkin Soufflé
“On the ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me nine ladies dancing.” This is, I suppose, a morbidly appropriate cookie for the nine ladies. =] I normally only have lady fingers as a part of other desserts, so it was interesting to actually make them from scratch. And… they were weird. It … Continue reading K: 12 Days of Cookies – Lady Fingers
Pies! We are a household that loves pies. We love them so much that when D had his birthday earlier this month, we made pies instead of cakes. Luckily, this paired perfectly with the Daring Bakers’ June Challenge. Rachael from pizzarossa was our lovely June 2013 Daring Bakers’ host and she had us whipping up … Continue reading K: Pies!
It’s perhaps slightly too wintery to do this particular pie justice, but we had leftover limes, whole milk, and whipping cream in the fridge, and this pie just popped out! It was delicious, and I think it would be even better in the summer. Crust: 18 graham cracker squares (1 package inside of a box) … Continue reading K: Cream Pie with a Twist of Lime
The February 2011 Daring Cooks’ challenge was hosted by Lisa of Blueberry Girl. She challenged Daring Cooks to make Hiyashi Soba and Tempura. She has various sources for her challenge including japanesefood.about.com, pinkbites.com, and itsybitsyfoodies.com I have to say, I think this is my favourite challenge thus far. It’s pretty easy to make, and it’s … Continue reading D: Tempura and Cold Soba Salad
First off – I can’t believe we haven’t posted in a week! Yikes! We’ve done some yummy meals in the past week, so hopefully those will go up soon! My only excuse is that I’ve been on jury duty this week (which is incredibly tiring), and after hearing lawyers talk about various things, well, it’s … Continue reading K: Farmers Market Week 2
