Hi team! Over the week-end I discovered the recipe thread, and was thrilled... Now I can't find it (damned!).  Anyway, here's what I wanted to pass along.  One of my favorite recipe sites ( no, I'm not about to sabotage your efforts!!)is http://www.courier-journal.com/lifestyle/food/   It's the newspaper from (drum roll please..) Louisville Kentucky.  Great recipes.  Have fabulous ideas for veggies and salads, etc.  which you may enjoy. 

Once you all have reached your goals and are showing off your svelte figures and giving the latest supermodel a run for her money, check out the rest of the site.

To get there, log on then go to lifestyles then click on food

Enjoy!

Only because it was suggested instead of Champagne to toast to the death of my fantasies in another thread... I give you a review of Prosecco!

The purchase suggestions are his - I know none of these bottlers nor do I get any commission from sales (which is a real shame I tell ya! HA!)




Fred Tasker: Prosecco easy to drink


By Fred Tasker
McClatchy-Tribune


Published: Wednesday, Aug. 13, 2014 - 12:00 am


The king is dead; long live the king! The French invented the term long ago to bid farewell to a deceased monarch and pledge fealty to a new one.

Today it has a whole new meaning. Today French Champagne – elegant and expensive, long the most popular bubbly wine in the world – has been overtaken in sales by a brash pretender. It’s the simpler, lower-in-alcohol, easier to drink (and easier to afford) sparkling wine from northern Italy called Prosecco.

Created in Roman times but almost unknown by wine fans only 20 years ago, Prosecco by the end of 2013 had soared to outsell Champagne by 307 million bottles to 304 million, according to the Italian Sparkling Wine Observatory.

The worldwide economic downturn of the late 2000s was a major cause. Champagnes can cost hundreds of dollars a bottle; Prosecco is seldom over $20.

Today it’s considered “cooler” than champagne by America’s iconoclastic 21-somethings, a helpful boon by their economically challenged elders.

Also, many say Prosecco is easier to drink. It’s feather-light, with bubbles that are gentler because they’re under only about half the atmospheric pressure of the bubbles in Champagne, making it feel creamier in the mouth. It’s less alcoholic, often 10.5 to 11 percent alcohol. It’s sometimes a bit sweeter than Champagne. And it’s often served a little cooler – maybe 40 degrees – so its feathery bubbles will hold together.

Champagne lovers bristle, of course, saying Prosecco will never approach the august heft and yeasty, flinty character of the bubbly made of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meuniere in the Champagne region northeast of France.

I agree this is true, that there is no finer wine in the world than top Champagne. But still, Prosecco has pulled off its coup.

Today Prosecco is the aperitif wine for America’s drinking-age youth, its picnic wine, its wine for seafood and shellfish and risotto and chicken and fish, and even not-too-sweet fruit tarts.

So while you might not safely serve Prosecco to your affluent in-laws, you certainly can pop open a celebratory bottle when your kids graduate from college and move back into your basement.

Highly recommended:

• Nonvintage Mionetto Prosecco Superiore Valdobbiadene DOCG: floral aromas, soft bubbles, green apple flavors, lightly sweet; $19.

• Nonvintage Col Credas Brut Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore “Rive di Farra di Soligo” DOCG: lightly fizzy, crisp and tart, with flavors of green apples; $22.

Recommended:

• Nonvintage Mionetto Prosecco Brut DOC: foamy bubbles, feather-light, floral aromas, green apple flavors, crisp and lightly sweet; $14.

• Nonvintage Mionetto “IL” Prosecco, “The Gentle Sparkling Wine:” semi-sparkling, aromas and flavors of pears, hint of sweetness; $12.

•  Nonvintage Mionetto Organic Prosecco di Treviso DOC Extra Dry: lightly sweet, with soft bubbles and tropical fruit flavors; $16.

• Nonvintage Prosecco Valdobbiadene Superiore di Cartizze DOCG: light, creamy and dry, with aromas and flavors of peaches and citrus and a hint of minerality; $35.

• Nonvintage Bosco di Gica Brut Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG: persistent fine bubbles, light body, aromas of camellias, flavors of ripe peaches, dry finish; $18.

•  Nonvintage Vigneto Giardino Dry Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore “Rive di Colbertaldo” DOCG: lightly sweet, light body, frothy bubbles, floral aromas, apricot flavors, spicy; $22.

• Nonvintage Lamberti Prosecco Extra Dry DOCG: frothy bubbles, light and slightly sweet, aromas and flavors of green apples and spice; $14.

Found interesting item on my Facebook account yesterday!  It concerns cooking Corn on the Cob in the Microwave with husk still on..

Cut off stalk end about 1 inch above last kernels.  Microwave 2-4 minutes.

Hold uncut end of cob and squeeze and shake till cob comes out of husk, free of silk.

Gotta get me so corn and give it a try.

Grilled Asparagus Salad with Fried Eggs
Contributed by Mark Broadbent

  • TOTAL TIME:  30 MIN
  • SERVINGS:   6  


  • •FAST
  • •HEALTHY
  • •VEGETARIAN

The East Room • London
Chef Mark Broadbent upgrades the standard lemony arugula salad by topping it with grilled asparagus, butter-fried eggs—duck eggs, when available—and freshly shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano.
 More Substantial Salads

  1. 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  3. 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  4. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 1 pound medium asparagus, trimmed
  6. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  7. 6 large eggs
  8. 6 cups baby arugula
  9. 3/4 cup freshly shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (about 2 1/2 ounces)  


  1. In a small bowl, whisk 3 tablespoons of the olive oil with the lemon juice and mustard. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. In a large bowl, toss the asparagus with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the asparagus over high heat until tender and charred in spots, about 5 minutes; keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, melt the butter over moderate heat. Working in batches if necessary, cook the eggs sunny-side up until the whites are firm and the yolks runny, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. In a bowl, toss the arugula with the lemon vinaigrette and transfer the salad to plates. Top with the asparagus, fried eggs and cheese shavings and serve at once.

I've been doing a spot of baking this weekend.  I assume three-layer cakes are in at the moment (I seem to be seeing a lot of them around).  Great for those, like me, who don't really like cake (I know, I know) or those who love cake so much they can never decide which one to choose.

This (bad photo, I know - it slipped out of my hands as I put it into the freezer after decorating and got smooshed) is my triple decker decadence:



Bottom layer:  chocolate chunk rocky road fridge cake (use half the recipe amount unless you like a massive wedge of chocolate base to your cake, which I do!).

Middle layer: lemon and almond cake

Top layer: white chocolate chip and caramel swirl cheesecake (obviously don't bother making the base or the marble-effect chocolate swirl on the top - instead I added chocolate coffee beans and dollops of caramel sause swirled through).

To finish: smother with cream cheese frosting (buttercream or icing would be too rich and sickly, so pick a fairly neutral flavour) and decorate as you please.  I used chocolate coffee beans and chocolate popping candy.

The recipes [mouse over the above to see links to each cake recipe] are dead easy to make - I'd assembled this within two hours.  The only thing you need to know is it makes a large, very heavy, very rich cake so a little goes a long way.  We've got 24 slices out of a 9-inch cake so you'll need space in your fridge or freezer for it.   I made a no-bake cheesecake because I don't really like the baked versions but that does mean it has to be kept refrigerated until it's all eaten.

The cheesecake looks fabulous, smooshed or not.  Cheese became an inspiration for a pot luck cocktail party I'm attending this week-end.  Permit me to share.   Having computer issues so will have to do this in 2 postings.  pale

Greek Feta Spread (Kopanisti)

Feta cheese whips up into a smooth, creamy spread when blended with olive oil in the food processor. The Greeks like to flavor it with garlic, mint and pickled peppers to make a piquant dip for pita bread. Serve it with radishes and cucumber spears for dipping, too.

Ingredients:


  • 1/2 lb. Greek or French feta cheese
  • 3 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbs. minced fresh mint or 1 tsp. crumbled
     dried mint
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes, plus more as needed
  • 6 Italian peperoncini (pickled green peppers),
     chopped, plus more as needed

Directions:

In a food processor, combine the cheese, olive oil, garlic, mint, the 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes and the 6 chopped peperoncini and process until smooth. Taste and add more red pepper flakes or peperoncini, if needed. Transfer to a serving bowl. Makes 1 1/2 cups; serves 4.

Williams-Sonoma Kitchen
ps... for those unfamiliar with peperoncini, they're the little peppers that are in an antipasto and Greek salads.

Ooh, that looks good. I'd eat all that in one sitting (yes, half a pound of cheese, no problem!) including whatever you've made to dip in it.

Has anyone ever made a salted caramel apple pie?  If so, is it terribly sweet?  Looking forward to trying new adventures in the kitchen.

Got a message from the thread saying it was too long, so here's the rest of it... End of tomato season, and the produce is good quality and inexpensive.  This is a favorite of mine.  Use it on chicken breast, fish and pasta.  Low in calories.  Enjoy
   Thread won't let me post photo.

Here's another way I use it... this recipe is really versatile...


When you're making pasta sauce, make 1/2 a batch of these tomatoes and add them to your sauce before serving.  Makes an awesome chunky sauce for linguine, rigatoni.  Or serve it in individual pasta bowls with large shells and alot of garlic bread.  Yummy.

Doen't hold up well with delicate pasta like angel hair.

  • That roasted cherry tomate thing sounds good..


This is one of the "dips" I make..


1 cup of cashew nuts
 
1 lemon squeezed


1 clove of garlic


handful of fresh herbs (basil, coriander and mint but    e.g. parsley works nicely)


1 tea spoon of soya sauce


pinch of salt & black pepper


coconut water


Blend all the ingredients together. I add just enough coconut water to keep my blender going as I like my dip quite thick, but you can adjust that….

Pullman is an architectural term for a long, narrow space within a structure. It is most often used to refer to a small kitchen ("a pullman kitchen") or, sometimes, a narrow hall.
The word is derived from the long sleeping cars on passenger trains created by the Pullman Company during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Pullman kitchens are most common in apartments, where space is limited, to minimize the kitchen's impact on living spaces.  Sad

  3. 3 ounces thinly sliced pancetta, torn into thin strips

[*]Preheat the oven to 450°. Make a cut in the center of each mushroom stem down to the cap. Insert a garlic slice in each stem, wrap a pancetta strip around it and secure with a toothpick. Spread the mushrooms on 2 large baking sheets, brush with the olive oil and bake for about 14 minutes, or until browned and crisp. Remove the toothpicks, transfer to a platter and serve.

ooooops, forgot to mention-- soak the toothpicks for a few minutes before popping in the oven, so they won't burn.

Yield:
4 servings

Level:

Ingredients

Frosting:
1/4 cup mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the Santas: Using a paring knife, cut off the leaf-end of each strawberry to make a flat surface. Cut a 1/2- to 3/4-inch piece from the pointed end of each strawberry and reserve as the hats.

Place the strawberries, wide-side down, on a work surface. Pipe a 3/4-inch-high swirl of frosting on each strawberry. Place the hats on top and pipe a small ball of frosting on top of the hats. Press two chocolate chips, pointed-sides inward, into the swirl of frosting to make eyes.

With several of my pals at COH looking for gluten free ideas, thought I’d send this along.  In the words of Julia Child  “bon appetite”  ( looks like a lot of work, but it isn’t.  Recipe comes with a lot of words.  Basically it’s cook the eggplant, make some sauce)

Julia Child's Eggplant Pizzas (Tranches d'aubergine á l'italienne)

(Makes 3-4 servings or 6-8 appetizer servings, recipe adapted from one found in From Julia Child's Kitchen.)

Ingredients:
1 globe eggplant, about 8 ounces and 9-10 inches long


about 1 T salt, for drawing water out of eggplant


about 2 T olive oil, for brushing eggplant before roasting


about 2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning, for sprinkling on eggplant before roasting


10 large basil leaves, cut in chiffonade strips (optional)
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1/3 cup finely grated low-fat mozzarella blend
hot red pepper flakes for sprinkling finished pizza (optional)

Sauce Ingredients:
2-3 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
3 large garlic cloves, very finely chopped
1 can good quality petite diced tomatoes with liquid (or use 3 cups peeled and diced fresh tomatoes)
1/2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning blend
1/4 tsp. dried oregano (use Greek or Turkish oregano)

Instructions:
Cut off both ends of the eggplant; then cut it into 3/4 inch thick slices (trying to make them the same thickness!) Put the eggplant pieces on a double layer of paper towels and sprinkle both sides generously with salt. Let the eggplant sit with the salt on it for about 30 minutes to draw out the liquid. (After the eggplant sits for 15 minutes, turn on the oven to 375F/190C.)

While the eggplant sits, make the sauce. Heat 2-3 tsp. olive oil (depending on your pan) and saute the finely chopped garlic just until it becomes fragrant. (Don't let it brown.) Add the petite diced tomatoes, dried Italian seasoning, and dried oregano and let the sauce cook at a low simmer until it's thickened, breaking up the tomatoes with a fork as it cooks. (Add water as needed, a few tablespoons at a time as the sauce cooks, keeping it hot by simmering at very low heat until it's needed for the eggplant slices.)

After 30 minutes, wipe the eggplant dry with paper towels (this also removes most of the salt.) Spray a roasting sheet with olive oil or non-stick spray, lay eggplant slices on, brush the tops of the eggplant with olive oil, and sprinkle with dried Italian seasoning. Roast the eggplant about 25 minutes (but "not so long that the slices become mushy and lose their shape" as Julia says.)

While the eggplant roasts, thinly slice the fresh basil leaves (if using) and combined freshly grated Parmesan and low-fat mozzarella blend. After 25 minutes or when eggplant pieces are done, remove eggplant from the oven and turn oven setting to broil. Spread a few tablespoons of sauce on the top of each eggplant slice, sprinkle with thin basil slices (if using) and top with a generous amount of cheese. Put pizzas under the broiler until the cheese is melted and slightly browned. (This took 6-7 minutes for me, but I was using a toaster oven and in a more powerful broiler it would probably only take a few minutes.) Serve hot, with red pepper flakes to sprinkle on pizza if desired.
