estro: little blue imp (lil imp icon)

Since 10/31/15:

List new to me recipes (and a handful of made up as I go recipes):

  • Alphabet soup, a kludge. Used tiny chuncks of tofu marinated in veggie oyster sauce, soy, and miso as the protein element. The rest was the standard veggie broth with kale ribbons, misc tubers, onions, and a bell pepper.

  • Mushroom broccoli quinoa casserole Also known as looking up recipes on the internet based on what needs to be used before it expires. While it is essentially a mac & cheese with quinoa instead of mac, it was sufficiently tasty to repeat as a single dish dinner.

  • Beet, kale, and quinoa salad from Thug Kitchen.

  • Tartine's pumpkin pie

  • Ermine icing with bourbon. This was a kludge that didn't go so well. It was tasty, but I suspect I didn't get the boiled milk part thick enough.

  • ( A buttermilk pound cake) from Bake it Like You Mean It

  • Butterscotch pie - First Prize Pies (This one had a brisket spilled in it, so did not get to experience it as a pie).

  • Butterscotch Pie with Marshmallow Thyme Meringue - Homemade Decadence

  • Ginger Pennies - Rose's Christmas Cookies

  • Brownies - Tartine

  • Jumble - Roses Christmas Cookies>
  • Bourbon Spike Russian Tea

  • Chicken Cacciatore - Art of the slow cooker

  • jerk chicken

  • cranberry sauce

  • blackberry lemon ginger

I am putting this here so I can close the damned tab*: Excellent lemon ricotta pancake recipe

This I am posting for the all of you (as I have it in an actual paper cookbook):Brown Sugar Kitchen's cornmeal waffles

Ages ago I was doing thrice a year posts listing all of the new recipes I had tried. Part of me wants to return to that documenting; part of me is sheepish about publicly displaying just how often I make sweets. (That being said, I now have an ice-cream maker so my meringue game has gotten really good).

*Sadly, over a decade's worth of unsorted and unsearchable bookmarks made a tagged LJ post the more reliable option for saving links.
Some historic places you really have to visit to understand; Fort Sumpter is not one of those. That being said, I had to actually go to find that out and think I am going to make it a goal for the next year to visit a lot more National Parks and Monuments. (Seeing dolphins in the harbor on the way back was a nice bonus).

Some people have a night out and come back to their room with something inadvisable that keeps them up half the night. I do this too, but my impulsively chosen nocturnal companions have page counts rather than pulses. Usually it is sci-fi or fantasy novel, but this time I ended up with cookbooks. The same store that mugged me, took my wallet and left me with those also left me with Microwave Spicy BBQ Pork Rind Pellets. I am appalled that these things exist (but really need to inflict them on others).

Got into Chicago this morning and hopefully my normally beloved boss will be in an improved mindset now that we are here, but I have my doubts.
