Leftover Phyllo Project: Fun with Apple Galettes

pic

A couple of weeks ago, I made a recipe that required a few sheets of phyllo dough and then I was stuck with an open roll in the fridge. What to do? What to do? Well, this for one…

Now, you can make this recipe as written, making one galette of each or you can just double the ingredients for the kind of galette you want to make and make 2 of those. The 5 sheets of dough, 1 apple, squirt of lemon and 1 tbsp of butter will make two galettes, no matter which variation . . . → Read More: Leftover Phyllo Project: Fun with Apple Galettes

Rigatoni with Hazelnuts, Tarragon and Tomatoes

pasta

This is super simple pasta. I first came across the recipe in like, 1997 or 1998 on, of all places, the 4AD mailing list. I know, wacky! I couldn’t find the original recipe when I set out to recreate it but what I could remember was: cottage cheese, milk, diced tomatoes, hazelnuts and tarragon. And I remembered thinking, huh, cottage cheese and pasta? But, it was quite tasty. You could also, of course, probably use ricotta.

So, here’s how I have been recreating this around the house lately. This dish also works excellently as a work . . . → Read More: Rigatoni with Hazelnuts, Tarragon and Tomatoes

Hooray! The Tulips are Alive!

I have been putting off calling the farm where we are purchasing bulk tulips for a crazy-awesomely low price, as I was scared all of the tulips had been killed off in our Freak April snow and 20 degree lows. I wanted to call and ask how the tulips were doing but I was kind of scared to know.

But after a quick check of their field report, it seems the tulips are alive! And the tulip fest has even been extended, as the flowers are in such good . . . → Read More: Hooray! The Tulips are Alive!

Great for Cold, Rainy Weather: Asian Chicken Coconut Soup

title

Here’s a super, tasty soup recipe, especially if your weather is crappy (like ours has been). Or, if there are some sniffles and complaints of sore throats around the house. Oh and last weekend, when it was uh 80 degrees and sunny out, I took the flannel sheets off the bed. Note to self: the flannel sheets stay in the bed until June. Grr.

Ah, hey, I don’t want to scare anyone that’s heading this way in say, uh 2 weeks or so, but it we had hail, rain and uh, snow this weekend. But, . . . → Read More: Great for Cold, Rainy Weather: Asian Chicken Coconut Soup

Salmon in Lemon-Mint Broth with Orecchiette and Pea Puree

title

I have been lazy. No other excuse. With that out of the way — Oh, little big head. You have such big teeth but you usually have such tasty recipes. Coincidence? I dunno.

If you can score some salmon, this is what you should do with it. I picked some up on sale! at Whole Foods. It was Alaskan salmon that was frozen on the boat and only $10.99 a pound. And it was very good here. I added pasta to the recipe to make it more of a one bowl meal. Also, I like . . . → Read More: Salmon in Lemon-Mint Broth with Orecchiette and Pea Puree
