When we got butternut squash in our Misfits Market Box I wanted to do something different. Then I got inspiration from a recipe for cabbage and mushroom pies. Yes, my brain jumps in random directions, but this time it landed on something delicious!
As our way to celebrate the Inauguration (for some celebration for others a dismal day) we popped the champagne we’d bought for New Year’s and I roasted a turkey with citrus stuffing. This one is definitely a keeper recipe… and maybe be the perfect “summer” turkey if things keep going in the direction they are with the pandemic.
This is a heavy dish but so flavorful. When it’s time for a meal that includes lamb, and not a lot of fuss, this is the one for you! Cooked in my new tagine, but a heavy bottomed casserole would also work.
I recently got way more zucchini than I could use. So I made a zucchini bread, but added figs and pumpkin seeds. Sooo yummy. Just mix up the wet ingredients, mix up the dry, stir them together and bake. Easy and done in under an hour!
Making a special dessert for Christmas in 2020 brought back so many memories of life in the business world back in the 80s and 90s, and memories of “business lunches” in and around Boston. But I couldn’t not include the recipe that brought these memories back! A simple Berries Pavlova and a sneaky recipe for Strawberries Romanoff if you’re paying attention.
I love lemons, and the more I cook the more I realize they have a place in pretty much every recipe! With this recipe it’s an opportunity to add tangy sweetness to any dessert. Well, maybe not chocolate cake, but then again, your choice! A simple recipe for citrus curd, with some alternatives and some ideas for using it. Why not check out my pavlova recipe, too? The perfect place for a zingy curd like this.
We started using Misfits Market for fruits and veggies. A great deal and lots of inspiration for future recipes. Read more about my experience and maybe take a walk down memory lane if you loved Rudolph. Yup, I tied them together!
Babka is a “wow” recipe, and rightly so. It takes time, patience, and the ability to really read a recipe. But it’s so worth it when you’ve finished. I hope you enjoy my version featuring white chocolate, apricots and almonds.
Homemade applesauce is one of the easiest recipes, and a great way to use up apples when your day of picking turned into way more apples than you can eat!
Have you ever seen pears, ready to pick, but figured they were so hard you’d break a tooth, or end up throwing them all away? This recipe is the perfect solution for a delicious flaky dessert, filled with the taste of Fall Pears and a bit of cinnamon.
