Wondering What to Grill Today? How About Herbed Lamb Burgers!

Herbed Lamb Burger

These were truly epic lamb burgers. A few factors that made them so good — the lamb was very local. I got it a couple of weeks ago (frozen!) at the Flying Fish Company, which is conveniently located about five blocks from our house on the weekend. Yeah, I know it’s lamb and not fish but if you stop by there you’ll find they have all manner of delicious and local things in the freezer that you can buy.

The lamb was from Hawley Lamb Ranch in Cottage Grove, OR. They don’t . . . → Read More: Wondering What to Grill Today? How About Herbed Lamb Burgers!

Cornflake-Crusted Halibut (or Salmon) with Chile-Cilantro Aioli

cornflake crusted fish

Hello! Yes, I am back from hiatus, otherwise known as Big-Spring-SW Roadtrip! So, come back blog traffic, come back… Um, hello?

Yes, well, anyway. The other day I was leafing through an old Cooking Light magazine (from 2007, I think) and I came across this recipe. I was intrigued. Cornflakes…on fish? Sure! Why not. I am a big believer in crusting stuff with stuff. And hey, this was really good! I’ll also quote the twitter here — @genoapdx — “looks like Halibut is not just for breakfast anymore!!” Indeed.

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberries & Toasted Walnuts

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

Ah, Oregon! Where it’s pancake weather until at least mid-June! This was a very nice brunch after our return from vacation and it was honestly very awesome to cook in my own kitchen again. Sigh. I missed you kitchen!

These pancakes are very light and flavorful, with just a hint of nutmeg and a good, lemony flavor. This recipe will make 2-3 servings (okay, maybe one serving if you really like pancakes).

They also go really well with mimosas. I’m just saying.

Really Late FFwD: Bacon, Mushroom & Spinach Quiche

Quiche

Oh, this French Fridays with Dorie is so late! I knew we would be on vacation when it was due but my plan was to post about it while on vacation. Yeah…didn’t do that. So here it is, 2 weeks later. I guess better late than never?

A link to everyone’s quiches. And here are my notes below:

1. I made the tart crust as written in the book, but I subbed 1 tbsp of the flour for 1 tbsp parmesan cheese. 2. I added sauteed mushrooms to my quiche, so good! 3. Oh yeah, . . . → Read More: Really Late FFwD: Bacon, Mushroom & Spinach Quiche

FFwD: Tourteau de Chevre

tourteau de chevre

Short and sweet today, because I am tired. French Fridays with Dorie: Goat cheese cheesecake edition. Delicious! Go!

1. I was the lazy this week and used store bought crust. Oh, the shame! 2. But to make up for that, over half the chevre I used was homemade! In that mound, I layered in dried lavender and orange zest so my tart had those flavors too. 3. Berries on top were delicious! 4. I hope it freezes okay, because half of mine is now sitting in the freezer. 5. My springform pan is . . . → Read More: FFwD: Tourteau de Chevre
