FFwD: Mme. Maman’s Chopped Liver

FFwD: Mme. Maman’s Chopped Liver

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie is one of those liver ones – the type that some people like to sit out. And I don’t blame them at all. I’m okay with liver, but I must admit to always skipping the sardine recipes.

For this one, my plan was to just make a half recipe (there are only two of us), but my chicken livers came frozen, in a one-pound tub. So…made the full version and froze half the finished chopped liver (without the egg), to bring out sometime in January.

Yam and Quinoa Cakes from Portland's Sunshine Tavern

Yam and Quinoa Cakes from Portland's Sunshine Tavern

Sunshine Tavern 3111 SE Division Street Portland Oregon 97202

Seeing that we live just a few blocks away, occasionally we will head out to Sunshine Tavern for pizza and burgers (and of course cocktails and maybe even some candied hazelnuts to start). This is just what happened last Tuesday when we ended up splitting the Garnet yam and quinoa cakes w fennel and almond as a snacky beginning to our meal. And wow – they were so good.

I’m always on the hunt for new quinoa/interesting whole . . . → Read More: Yam and Quinoa Cakes from Portland's Sunshine Tavern

FFwD: Tuna Packed Piquillo Peppers

FFwD: Tuna Packed Piquillo Peppers

This post will be fairly short and sweet as I’m on location in Seattle for IFBC tonight. In fact, just now, coming back up to my hotel room, I walked right past Dorie in the lobby!

Anyway, I liked these peppers a lot. I ended up using a can of Trader Joe’s smoked trout for the tuna, but only because I had that and I didn’t have any tuna (and it seemed close enough). Plus, I think the smoked fish complimented the peppers quite well. The only other thing I . . . → Read More: FFwD: Tuna Packed Piquillo Peppers

FFwD: Socca from Vieux Nice (with Red Onion & Cherries)

FFwD: Socca from Vieux Nice

This week’s French Fridays with Dorie was Socca, which, believe it or not, I’ve made before. And because of that, I already had some Bob’s Red Mill Garbanzo Fava Flour. I know the Dorie recipe calls for Garbanzo Flour only, but since I had the mix I decided to go ahead and use it. It worked just fine.

I liked this socca version better than my previous attempt as it turned out much thinner and crispier. I made a half recipe and used two small pans. Also, because I need to . . . → Read More: FFwD: Socca from Vieux Nice (with Red Onion & Cherries)

Saucy Mama's Sliced Recipe Contest: Cream Cheese, Dill Mustard & Bacon Wontons with Apricot Chutney Dipping Sauce

Saucy Mama's Sliced Recipe Contest: Cream Cheese, Dill Mustard & Bacon Wontons with Apricot Chutney Dipping Sauce

So, I am a participant in Saucy Mama’s Sliced Recipe Contest…hooray! If you haven’t heard of Saucy Mama, they are a Pendleton, Oregon company that makes wonderful mustards. I first heard of them last year, around the time of IFBC in Portland.

So, for this recipe contest, there’s the mustards (the new Dill, Creamy Garlic, and Hatch Chili), of course, and then a secret ingredient — bacon! I have tried all the mustards at this point and they are . . . → Read More: Saucy Mama's Sliced Recipe Contest: Cream Cheese, Dill Mustard & Bacon Wontons with Apricot Chutney Dipping Sauce
