Turnip Baked Fries

Michelle made this tonight from our first turnip harvest. We’ve discovered that there’s more to turnips than mashing or steaming them! Turnip prep. First, peel three good sized turnips; slice them a little less than a half-inch thick, and cut them into french-fry shapes. Next, coat them in olive oil (or the oil of your choice). The dry mix In a separate bag, combine half a cup of grated parmesan cheese, and a teaspoon of each of the following: garlic salt, paprika, onion powder, and a dash of what seems best to you. Combine and bake Shake the turnip fries […]

Tomato Dream Pie

Use a pre-baked pie shell to keep the pie from bottom sogginess. Layer with tomatoes and top with herbs of your choosing. Use 2 cups of shredded cheddar (Michelle uses extra sharp and 1 cup of mayonnaise mixed together). Top the first layer of tomatoes with half the mixture and then do a second layer of tomato and mixture with the rest. Bake at 425 for 35 minutes; let cool about 15 minutes, and enjoy. This is highly recommended by Michelle and Brendan. 🙂

Peanut Sauce!

I was surprised how great my improvised peanut sauce turned out. Veggies sautéing. I added a couple-to-four tablespoons of peanut butter – all natural, chunky. I don’t have soy sauce, so I used teriyaki – about 1-to-1.5 Tbs. Finally, I added a couple squirts-worth of hot pepper paste. Wanted to add ginger, but didn’t have it. Would have added water, but my zucchinis were already adding a lot. Added whole peanuts, salt, and pepper to the sautee, too! The result?: Mmmmm! Great.

Gluten-Free, Casein-Free Southern Cornbread

When I was off gluten for experimental purposes, I was dismayed that I could not eat bread – until I found I could make my own rice flour with a grinder, and substitute it for wheat flour. Hooray!  This was my tasty substitute, found on the glutenfreecookingschool.com site. Cornbread should really be made in a cast-iron skillet, but you can use a glass casserole dish in a pinch. The crust won’t be as crispy, but that’s the only difference. Ingredients 1 Tbsp shortening or oil 1 1/4 c. white cornmeal 1/2 c. brown rice flour 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. […]

Rhubarb Pie

“It doesn’t take much to make rhubarb sing: Some sugar, a bit of flour, and a pat or two of butter. When this lovely double-crust pie emerges from the oven, it’s golden outside and sweet and luscious inside. It’s especially nice with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.”   Ingredients: 4 cups chopped rhubarb 1 1/3 cups white sugar 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon butter 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie Directions: Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Combine sugar and flour. Sprinkle 1/4 of it over pastry in pie plate. Heap […]

Enjoy.

Bredan Recipe (Brendan-Bread)

Here’s how I re-started making bread, maybe around 2005-6. Yes, it’s a bread machine recipe; but for me at that time, the machine made the difference between baking and not. As of the beginning of the year, I’ve converted to pretty much all oven-baked, “Kneadless Artisan” bread. Mmmm… (But people still remember and request this Bredan; so here’s how to make your own with a cheapo thrift-store bread machine.) The base Active dry yeast: 1.5 Tbs + a little Bread flour: 3 c Granulated sugar: 2 Tbs Salt: 1.25 tsp + a little Non-fat dry milk (optional): 2 Tbs Butter […]
