Weekly Bread Post

  I was totally out of homemade bread.  So, I decided to get a little ahead of the game this week. Monday, I kneaded up a double batch, baked four baguettes and refrigerated the other half to use later this week.  I’ll probably bake a pizza  and a couple of more loaves between now and…

Lebanese Dinner – Shish Taouk with Toum (Garlic Sauce)

I was thinking of making Chicken Souvlaki for dinner last night but came upon a recipe for another kabob – a Lebanese version on Chicho’s Kitchen. Along with the recipe for the Shish Taouk there was also a recipe for the most wonderful garlicky sauce to serve with the chicken. I marinaded the chicken all…

Mae Dawson’s Hoosier Sugar Cream Pie

We had dinner last night at our next door neighbours.  Dinner was simple, just lots and lots of King Crab. No sides. Just the way we like it.   A real crab feast.    I decided about 8:15 am yesterday morning that maybe I should make a dessert.  I’d seen a picture somewhere of a Sugar…

Going Greek

We had dinner with our good friends and neighbours, Barb and Clif,  last night.  I made Greek.  Greek Salad, which is both Moe’s and Barb’s favourite and slow roasted leg of lamb served with both rice and roasted potatoes.   You’ve got to love the way the Greeks serve both rice and potatoes with a meal….

Bread and Pizza

  I’m still baking bread at least once a week.  Last Tuesday I kneaded up a batch of baguette dough, baked four small baguettes and saved the other half for another day.  Which turned out to be Sunday.  Moe pulled the dough out of the fridge early so that it was at room temperature by…

Texas Cookies

 I had a craving for something sweet.  So I pulled out the recipe for Texas Cookies.  I’ve been making these cookies for over 20 years, but hadn’t made them recently.  The recipe comes from Lee Bailey’s Good Parties Cookbook. Baked on a small cookie sheet or jelly roll pan and then cut into squares, these…

Earlier this Week – Asian Style Halibut

  I wanted halibut again and picked up two nice big steaks rather than fillets.  I prefer the fillet cut, but the steaks were priced at $2.00 per 100g and the fillets at 3.99 per 100g. And since they taste the same I decided to go with the steaks and just bone them out before…

Roast Beef Breakfast

When we lived in northern Ontario we would often go out for a Sunday Breakfast brunch.  There was always the standard breakfast items and usually a couple of meats at the carving station.  Moe loved the combination of rare roast beef and gravy with his scrambled eggs.    I had presalted (see method)a little sirloin tip…
