  1. Lamb tagine with carrots, apricots and dates. Served with couscous ( not traditional I know but not in the mood to make bread. And a side salad
  2. Granddaughter has egg and dairy allergies and looking to make a cake or cake like fruit dessert .
  3. Last night NYT recipe for Thai inspired chicken meatball soup https://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/1020631-thai-inspired-chicken-meatball-soup Added lemongrass, galangal and makrut lime leaves to the broth and increased the broth/coconut milk ratio to favor the broth. It was delicious but most surprising were the chicken meatballs, which I baked rather than fried. I’d never thought about making chicken meatballs but used Bell and Evans ground chicken breast and they turned out great! I think I’ll try making Italian seasoned meatballs next.
  4. NYE It’s been a year like no other and I decided to treat myself and Mr. to a caviar sampling. And then because I had just made chicken soup the day before, I decided to try my hand at pho. Of course it wouldn’t be authentic but I had all ingredients on hand and we miss our local pho dinners. And for dessert we were gifted a box of Mallomars which we microwaved to perfection-
  5. Has anyone ordered caviar from Browne Trading Co.? Or order from Black Salt? A treat for this NYE seems to be something to look forward to since we have not dined out nor ordered takeout since March.
  6. David Lebovitz recently had a recipe for chocolate marshmallows that looked interesting.
  7. I have been baking with this for at least a year and have been very happy with the results, especially in butter cookies and shortbread. It goes on sale from time to time at Harris Teeter.
  8. Cookie baking time. Using the 1995 Gourmet Magazine Basic Butter Cookie recipe and all it’s varieties, I made mocha butter balls and coconut sticks (which are my favorites.) https://www.caskata.com/blogs/news/new-blog Also Greenspan’s world peace cookies. Now to deliver to friends
  9. Sheet pan chicken thighs- with apple, shallots and kalettes which were tucked under the chicken which kept them from burning for the 45 minutes at 425.
  10. Thinking about trying to recreate Black Salt’s Thai Coconut seafood stew- which might be mor like Tom kha goong- but the green or red chili paste might be good to add Today’s lunch was from Bon Appétit turkey leftover recipe- but I subbed poached chicken thighs for the turkey. https://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/mouthwatering-turkey-with-glass-noodles
  11. Comfort food dinner last night. My Twin Springs produce order included an enormous cabbage and I decided to make stuffed cabbage with a side of mashed potatoes.
  12. My daughter has a Thanksgiving Birthday. Every year she requests this Chocolate Raspberry Layer Cake from Epicurious.
  13. While I am sorry to hear about the economic fallout of the business, the last Greenberg turkey I ordered 2 years ago was basically inedible- too much smoke and too much salt.
  14. Garlic crumb crusted oven baked halibut with roasted Brussels sprouts and small purple potatoes. To me, fresh halibut is most delicious when cooking time is very carefully monitored, otherwise it can become dry. Today is set aside for comfort food- chicken soup grandma’s way.
