Eggses, Precious!

This morning I treated myself to duck eggs, purchased yesterday at the Asian Pacific Market. They cost twice as much as the nicer-than-common chicken eggs I usually use, with bright orange yolks that make standard chicken eggs look positively anaemic! Duck eggs are tougher-shelled than chicken, not... Sign in to see full entry.

I am thinking of making a custard today. It has been years since I made it, then I saw something online, a recipe that is just eggs and condensed milk. As it happens, today's episode of the British Baking Show is all about custard. I remember mixing up the ingredients, pouring them into little pyrex... Sign in to see full entry.

Kind of a Frittata

Just made a most tasty lunch! Two eggs, beaten, with some thawed cocktail shrimp mixed in, poured into a small pyrex dish... zucchini and onion--sauteed with a dash of Yoshida sauce--added on top of the egg mix... then 4 minutes in the microwave. Turned out on a plate, a bit of ketchup on top. Yum!... Sign in to see full entry.

Best Party Plans!

Adnohr mentioned home-made pizza in a comment, and that reminded me of one of my favorite lunch or dinner party things: I provide little individual sized pizza crusts, and lay out a selection of sauces and toppings, and heat up the oven. Everyone makes their own pizza to their own taste! An... Sign in to see full entry.

It builds up so gradually, it's hardly noticeable if you are not like my Mom who noticed every thing and cleaned constantly. She had a Bachelor's Degree in Home Economics, even, though she was not proud of it, and one of her life-long sadnesses was that she fell only a couple of credits short of the...

TV kitchen shenanigans

There are so many cooking shows these days, and some are goofy, some are more educational, some are just plain fun. The Great British Baking Show is one of my favorites from way back: With all its changes over the seasons, one thing that has been reliable is the courtesy and kindness of the group of...

The Leftovers

Yesterday's experimenting worked out and made two tasty meals. Both the perked-up sauces worked out, and the ketchup was better than I thought it might be. I don't generally add ketchup to chicken, but it was okay. I think next time I will try them as marinades, not just on the skin. Cauliflower... Sign in to see full entry.

playing with the sauces again...

I've just put into the oven some big pieces of cauliflower. Some I brushed with the spiced-up sauce I made the other day. Another I dressed up with some balsamic vinaigrette. Then I put in another pan with some chicken thighes, one with the spicey sauce, one with just ketchup, and one with the... Sign in to see full entry.

Inventing a saucy sauce

This morning, after putting some basic flavors--smoke, Yoshida sauce, crushed garlic--on some pork loin, and popped that in a slow oven, I looked at the remains of the crushed garlic in its big jar, and got the idea of making some cooking sauce of my own. Into the jar went more Yoshida and smoke... Sign in to see full entry.

Recommended: Trader Joe's Vegetable Masala Burgers

There is this idea that vegetarian food tends to be bland. If you like Indian flavors, this is one you might really appreciate. Trader Joe's Masala Burgers are spicy without being mouth-burning. They are 19 carbs each, with corn and potatoes in them, if that's something you need to take note of. I... Sign in to see full entry.
