I usually turn leftover pancake batter into crepe batter by adding an egg or two, maybe milk if it needs it.

By crepe, do you mean a very thin item you can roll or fold up around delicious fillings?

I'm currently eating dinner. While it's not fancy, it's good and I made it!

Boneless skinless chicken thighs brined with shallots, garlic powder, and thyme served with sautéed mushrooms and spinach.

I just kind of threw together some stuff to flavor the chicken earlier today, and I'm pleasantly suprised at the results!

I could've dried it a bit better before putting it in the pan though...

It's not gourmet, but it's great for a dorm meal done in a single pan!

Saturday I made:
  • Chocolate cake with caramel filling and ganache topping
  • Some sort of berry and gin cocktail I have yet to name
  • Red velvet cookies sandwiched with white chocolate cream cheese ganache

Yesterday I made:
  • Roast pork with roasted apples, roasted root veg, brocolli and rice and a pretty good gravy
  • Choc chip marshmallow cookies with the Mooling

Of those things everything was ok except the cookies which were excellent by virtue of being fun to do with the Mooling. OK the white chocolate cream cheese thing was pretty great too. Would've been better on the chocolate cake than the dark choc ganache, I think. The cake was nice but not what I'd hoped.

Chocolate ganache is so easy to overdo. I feel you. Your whole body is anticipating a bite of cake, when suddenly you've got a bunch of too-rich chocolate in your mouth.

Recently I've started to include a ton of veggies when I make mac & cheese, I'm not sure why I didn't do that in previous times. Yesterday's (whole-grain) mac & cheese included onions, garlic, mushrooms, poblano peppers, lots of other peppers, kale, and spinach.

Later that night Alex was doing a thing in Zelda involving carrots and was like "You know what would be good? Carrot cake." So I made some carrot cake. It's pretty ugly (broke apart when I tried to take it out of the pan for some reason I can't fathom at the moment) but it's yummy.

Baked up a pan of Dublin Coddle, or bangers and potatoes with onions. Bangers are British suausages. The recipe I started from suggested using bratwurst instead, but I'm glad I can get the real thing. The textures of the two are completely different.
In the morning I may end up doing a full English breakfast, if I can get a can of the proper baked beans. Bangers, fried potatoes, fired mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, eggs over easy and baked beans with toast. Yum.

Ooh, I should find a source of bangers around here. I've tried bratwurst and American breakfast sausage as substitutes, and they aren't the same. Some nice British-style bacon would be good too, and maybe some blood pudding.

The tomatoey baked beans are the one component I can find easily around here. It's kind of weird how rare British-style bangers and bacon are in the Bay Area, despite how many options there are of other sausages and cured fatty pork products.

I made a red curry with tempeh and veggies (over pink rice, weirdly), and also a bean soup, and have been reminded the extent to which I think tempeh is terrible.

I really need to find a place convenient to my new home where I can reliably get reasonably priced baked tofu. I feel like baking it myself never ends up right, and I never want to put in the time investment.

Last night, sourdough bread.

This morning, sourdough pancakes.

It was the first time I've made sourdough pancakes in ages. They were delicious. Slightly chewy, but still with nice fluffiness. They were slightly sweet, with a nice, mild tang.

Excellent with butter and syrup.

They are also fun to make! I don't use a recepie, per se. I make a poolish the night before that is thin enough to stir, but not thin enough to pour. In the morning I add an egg, some vegetable oil, some salt, and enough milk to make it pancake-batter consistency. I then add sugar to taste and enough baking powder (or soda) to make it nice and bubbly.

Did some oven braised ribs finished on the grill with a sticky sauce. Alas, they stayed on the grill too long and got dried out. :cry: will try again when I've restocked my charcoal supply.
For tonight it's a batch of gnudi, with brown butter and crispy sage leaves. I think there will be sautéed shrimps too. And maybe spinach.
Seder is coming up-we are hosting on Tuesday, so there will be much cooking tomorrow.

For lunch yesterday, we made some fattoush to go with leftover rotisserie chicken, along with a simple tahini sauce. Decent fattoush is surprisingly hard to find in restaurants here.

For dinner, asparagus risotto, then a salad to go with some store-bought bourbon sausage.

So, it was seder:
Chicken soup
Vegetable soup
Matzah balls
Hard boiled eggs in salt water
Chopped liver
Gefilte fish
Charoset
Salmon coulibiac
Vegetable coulibiac
Asparagus
Noodle kugel
Chocolate whipped cream roulade

Coulibiac is a layered terrine wrapped in pastry. In many ways it isn't kosher for Passover, but we are so not-kosher that I was feeling it would be hypocritical to worry about it now.
We have such hard-drinking friends that with 11 people at the table and a prescrpiive requirement for four glasses each, we opened two bottles of red wine and two bottles of not-wine fancy fizzy grape juices.

That sounds great! I made this vegetarian matzo ball soup for the friends we're seeing tonight (not a seder, just having dinner). It was my first time making matzo ball soup, I think, and it turned out pretty well. I was surprised at the addition of saffron but it really did bring an additional flavor I think. I did end up just slicing new carrots and celery for the final soup -
I thought her suggestion of separating them from the rest of the stock was ridiculous.

The amounts in the recipe are tiny, I ended making two batches of matzo balls. The first batch turned out perfect, the second wasn't nearly as good. The issue was I didn't have matzo meal so I had to crumble matzo in the blender, and by the time I got to the second batch I didn't feel like washing everything so I just crushed them by hand for a bit. They're OK and taste fine, but they're not nicely shaped. I might post pictures tonight.

It's going to be a weird evening - I have to get back from work, clean the apartment a bit, pack things for our vacation tomorrow (just a long weekend), then entertain people.

Last night I made:

Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Pizza
Gluten Free Goat Cheese Pizza

The former was a typical sourdough crust, the latter was an experiment of mine. I had a friend visiting who, due to an autoimmune disease, can't have gluten, but is also lactose intolerant. I made the crust from cup4cup flour, with a sourdough starter that I converted to gluten free flours, and baked it pan-style in a cast iron pan. The cheese was ricotta salada and a goat gouda. It was lacking that wonderful gluten chew, but the taste was right on. she said it was the closest thing to real pizza that she has had in years.

That sounds really great.

I've never had any good gluten-free pizza or bread. I'm very glad I can eat gluten. It's amazing stuff and adds a nice texture.

Speaking of which, I did sourdough pancakes again. I love it because they are light and fluffy, but still have a bit of chew to them that is nice. Of course, the taste is great too. They're also really easy and my friends enjoy them, which is always nice.

I made a bunch of stuff this weekend for a Passover potluck and friends brunch and also just for food for the week. Charoset (Ashkenazi style, but with pecans 'cause I'm not that fond of walnuts, and no wine for reasons), sweet potato, chickpea and kale stew, pear maple bread (yes, it's not Passover-friendly), lentil soup with escarole, anda palak, red lentil dahl and some basmati to go with.

After all that I still have a ton of produce leftover, too, so I suspect I may need to cook more and freeze some stuff at some point.

Chili-lime chicken thighs.

They were good -- kind of last minute. I marinated them with lime juice, a roasted jalapeño, and garlic. I wish I'd had a tomatillo to use instead of the lime, but tomatillos are hard to find in the middle of Iowa, and I didn't want to walk to Walmart on the off chance they had some. Also, all the tomatillos I've seen for sale there and anywhere else here have not looked good.

It came out pretty good! It could've been spicier, but I got unlucky and picked out a fairly mild japaleño.

Made a salad of fennel, blood oranges, pecorino, red onions, and pine nuts, in vinaigrette. Followed by a sole meuniere variation with pine nuts again, sort-of-chateau potatoes, and blanched asparagus in vinaigrette.

And the day after: stir-fried cod with ramps and fermented black beans. Been a fishy week.

Today I'll be making: poached white fish (depends what the fishmonger has when I get there after work) served with flageolet beans and roasted asparagus.

Today I'm prepping: The newest twerked version of my gluten free pizza crust, replacing about 20% of the liquids with egg white, and using a sourdough pre-ferment that's been fed teff flour (30% of the total flour amount).

Sourdough pizza crust (usual recipe, 20% flour as durum wheat)

Made Japanese curry with whole grain rice. Pretty simple (the seasoning is literally Japanese curry cubes and ketchup (don't knock it 'till you try it)), but very tasty.

If you have not had Japanese curry, you should know it's a very different dish than Indian curry.

It is the Japanese version of the British idea of Indian curry. Still very tasty.

Yup, being the Japanese version of the British version of the Indian version makes for a quite different meal. (Pastrychef beat me to it.) Exhibit one: the default meat ingredient in Japanese curry is beef.

I like the "Vermont" Japanese almost-prefab curry (it's a sub-brand of "House" curry). And I usually leave out the potatoes (rice is enough starch) and add some other veggies instead. And add a bunch more pepper, because even the "hot" flavor is safe for Minnesotans. I have not tried adding ketchup, but that sounds like a very Japanese thing to do...

Yes! The Vermont version is great. Where that idea came from-apple and honey flavored curry mix-I'm not sure I want to know.
Not made yet but on the schedule for today: brasicole with spinach, tomato sauce, and polenta. Maybe a batch of bread as it's chilly and grey around here.

Yesterday I made some delicious pasta with spinach and asparagus. I also made a strawberry rhubarb pie - it turned out good, but there was too much liquid in the mixture. The recipe just called for mixing strawberries and rhubarb with some flour and sugar and let them sit for half an hour. Maybe in the future I should let them sit and then drain them, or cook them a bit... Any advice is appreciated.

A local pie place here puts tapioca balls in theirs to absorb up the liquid. A little unexpected, but seems like a nice shortcut.

Banana Bread. Used the first recipe on google, except things like "x cups brown sugar" became "use remaining brown sugar" and "2 cups sliced bananas" (wtf kind of measurement is that?) became "three bananas of widely varying sizes" and I didn't bother to measure out the flour precisely, but it turned out well despite all that. Quickbreads tend to be forgiving enough.
