    Cauliflower with Spiced Tahini and Garlic Chili Sauce (Milk St.)

    Boy, Middle-Eastern cooks sure know how to flavor up a bland dish! This one had an explosion of flavors! And it was nice since all I had to buy is a head of cauliflower. BTW, steaming the whole head of cauliflower in the oven worked very well! I would definitely do this method again, and...

    Moroccan Meatballs Tangine with Olives and Lemon (Milk St.)

    These were OMG great! A keeper! I omitted the cinnamon, but otherwise made as written. I cooked the whole pan of meatballs in sauce in advance, then reheated 4 meatballs for me, cooked one egg in them and could only eat 3. Delicious! I would have loved naan with this, but I served it with...

    French 75 cocktail

    Saw a chef on Milk St. on TV make a cocktail called a French 75 (named after a 75mm gun used in WWI). He used agave instead of simple syrup (another online recipe called for honey) and said to add 6-10 grains of coarse salt. I made it his way. The only thing I had to buy is a tiny bottle of...

    Beets with Feta

    I had some leftover baked feta from another recipe, and saw this recipe in a supermarket flyer. Using store-bought cooked beets made this a quick and delicious side dish! I had the herbs, too. I did heat it up in the microwave for a minute, because I wanted the feta to be a little gooey...

    Peppadew Peppers

    Turbo Turkey Breast

    I wanted to roast a turkey breast, mainly for lunches, and looked up recipes for a 7 lb. breast. I found this one, and though I was skeptical about keeping the 425 oven temp throughout, I read the reviews and others loved the results. I did use a probe thermometer and it only took an hour and...

    Spinach and Ricotta Gnudi

    This recipe was in my latest issue of Cook's Illustrated. I don't recall ever hearing of gnudi before. What a great idea - the flavors of ravioli without the pasta! Brilliant! The original recipe called for 1/4 teas. of grated lemon zest, which I put in. I thought the lemon was too much...

    Stone and Jonah crab claws

    Since I saw medtran's photo of stone crab claws (and I think Silversage has posted about them in the past as well), I've been interested in trying them. Today, I saw bags of frozen Jonah crab claws that are evidently similar. Didn't note the price, or look at the heating directions (I assume...

    Bacardi Rum Cake

    This is truly my favorite dessert! My beloved stepmother, Gerry, made this every Christmas and gave me a big chunk of it. It lasted in the fridge for months, never drying out, always delicious! Gerry made more glaze than the original recipe, and I've written her amounts in the recipe below...

    Turkey Meatloaf with Mushrooms, Spinach and Feta

    I keep trying to like ground turkey, but I keep thinking I wish it was ground beef or ground lamb. This was okay. The original recipe said to top the meatloaf with BBQ sauce before baking, but I just couldn't see doing that. I made a thick tzatziki to use when serving, which made for a messy...
