Recipe Wednesday: Spice of Life

Last week I talked about stocking foods in my pantry.  I like to keep certain staples on hand to use as the basis of meals, and as emergency meals (in a pinch).  Things like canned goods, pasta, frozen meats, etc. … Continue reading

Recipe Wednesday: Apple Butter Of The Gods

People who know me probably know I’m not much of a fruit eater. My mom says I never was, even as a baby. Bananas are the worst. I can’t even take a bite without triggering a gag reflex. I’m told … Continue reading

Recipe Wednesday: Currying Favor

I had a deprived childhood.  I grew up without curry. My dad was never fond of curry to start with, and the fact that he spent several months in Pakistan at one point didn’t help at all.  So Mom never … Continue reading

Recipe Wednesday: Meatballs From History (Part 3 of 3)

For our third excursion into “Meatballs From History,” I present a dish called “Golden Apples”. Medieval and Renaissance-era cookery texts contain numerous examples of “illusion foods” — foods that are disguised as other foods, or even non-food objects.  One of … Continue reading
