( Chocolate )

Radish top soup improv: leek, radish tops, green onions, celery and an onion bouillon topped with (and mixed in) lemon thyme. I meant to add a potato for body but forgot. Still good. We had it outside but it was a bit chilly so part 2 of meal, inside. Annatto and Japanese rice seasonings. What [...]

Making BanPierocchi on the BBQ

( Bread andChocolate andPasta andRecipes )

The turducken of pasta: a gnocchi inside a pierogi topped with camembert inside bannock. It is an Italian/Ukrainian/Scottish/Native/French with herbs. It looks kind of like Scottish eggs, doesn’t it.

There are a lot of recipes on the site as well including 21 for tofu. Not the recipe he did though. And he diverged from it somewhat with explanation of why. For example, the [...]

Chocolate Pie

Worked from Mayan Chocolate Pie but lost the Mayan part. No cayenne pepper. I made other changes according to ingredients on hand: crust into food processor: [...]

Hallowe’en

I hope we get lots of trick-or-treaters. We already killed a 40-bar box waiting all week. Those who like Kitkats and Coffee Crisps are out of luck. One more 40-bar box and most of a 90-bar box left. We were going to get odd Chinese things like lychee jelly pockets, but I got vetoed. We’re [...]
