Breakfast Cookies

I am never going to make these myself, but I am going to try and find someone else to make them for me… Breakfast Cookies! Made with apple sauce, oats, flax seed, pistachios, dried cherries and other good stuff.

Cooking Tips

This post at The Splendid Table covers five cooking tips, with instructions:

  • Never drop potatoes into boiling water;
  • Preheat the pan before you roast vegetables;
  • Cut onions vertically if you want them to hold their shape;
  • When mixing a batter, alternately add wet and dry ingredients; and,
  • Press tofu to achieve a golden crust.

Curried Cauliflower

Cooking with curry is something I’ve started doing more in the last few years. I’ve made it a rule to keep yellow curry powder and coconut milk as common items in my pantry. This recipe for Cauliflower Chickpea Curry looks like something I will definitely try.

Fried Chicken

Want the secret to great fried chicken? This the kitchn post tells us to pre-cook the chicken before frying, so you only have to concentrate on browning and crisping. Sounds good to me.

Herbs

Grilled Peaches

If you’ve ever wanted to make grilled peaches, then this recipe from Modern Mami is a must-read. Basically, you halve and pit the peach, grill (yes, on a real grill), then cut and toss with brown sugar. Top with ice cream. Check out the recipe for additional do’s and don’ts, and some luscious-looking pics.
