Last night I made an acorn squash and sauteed onion mash. No salt, no pepper. It was so delicious!

How about some habanero pineapple salsa over ice cream to go with? 

    1 can pineapple chunks
    1 habanero pepper, minced
    4 fresh mint leaves, cut into chiffonade
    1 cup corn oil
    2 large corn tortillas, cut into wedges
    1 cup sugar and cinnamon mixture

In a small saucepan, combine pineapple chunks, habanero pepper, and mint leaves. Simmer for 5 minutes. Cool thoroughly and remove mint.

In a large saute pan, bring 1 cup of corn oil to 325 degrees F. Add wedges of corn tortillas and cook until golden brown on each side, approximately 3 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Liberally dust warm corn wedges with sugar and cinnamon mixture.

Serve pineapple salsa over ice cream with the fried corn tortillas.

Sriracha Peanut Butter Cookies


I've had them before and liked them, the sriracha with peanut butter gives a slightly thai flavor.  But I may not be the best subject for this.



From The Oatmeal.  Read his stuff.  It is hilarious.

I haven't made the cookies yet, but it's still on the agenda

I also worship at that altar. Alton Brown makes cooking fun and sciency. I love watching his shows and I have a bunch of his books. I love his concept that cooking is like reading directions and having a map. Directions are a great way to take you from 'A' to 'B', but having a map is great way to be able to pleasantly take a detour.

I'm not evil. I'm corporate.

I just whipped up a batch of chocolate carrot cupcakes with chocolate cream cheese frosting that are chilling in the fridge.  I used carrots I just plucked from the garden today. 

On a side note, I looked at a bunch pf recipes before settling on the one I chose, in large part because it uses cardamom, and ever since reading Throne of The Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed in which the main character loves cardamom tea, I've been interested in the spice.

Since this thread popped to the top, if anyone ever has any allergy/food restriction questions, let me know, my wife has been egg, dairy, and wheat free for three years now, so I've had to come up with some interesting substitutions.

That's intense! I'd imagine that food is a pretty scary thing when you can't eat any of those.

She gets an IGG reaction(stomach/gut), not an IGE reaction(throat closing, swelling), so it isn't the end of the world if she eats those, but it is not pleasant for her.  We've found a lot of interesting substitutes, like applesauce as an egg replacer, and that Asian markets have rice noodles at 1/5th the price of normal markets.

I heart Asian markets!

Thanks for offering up wisdom, Gamercow!  I know quite a few people with various food allergies and aversions, so I may hit you up one of these days!

I made some home made butter this morning so now I'm about to make some biscuits with the buttermilk.

We've also got a pizza dough rising :)

I love when the weather turns cool.  It makes me want to heat up the oven!

I made lemon curd last Sunday. Last night was cowboy beans and cornbread. I think tonight is soup.

We made acorn squash stuffed with quinoa and sausage last night. Today I'm going to make a nice chicken tikka masala, and maybe get going on Christmas baking. :D

Taking a break from cooking today, because yesterday, I made a roast duck with a spiced pomegranate sauce and some spiced mashed potatoes.

Don't have a recipe for the potatoes, since that's one of those things I have just made so often that I have no idea what the measurements are anymore, but here's the duck.

It was amazing, btw. No tweaking this recipe at all, it's perfect.

Um. You might have just given me part of my Christmas Eve menu. Oddly enough, I've been looking for a good pomegranate sauce recipe this week! Thanks. :D
