Pears with Warm Orange-Ginger Sauce - Easy



Sometimes I come up with a recipe all on my own.  Sometimes the ingredients are thrust upon me.  Like this recipe for the Improv Challenge, where participants are given two ingredients and sent off to create a masterpiece.   This month's challenge is to use orange and ginger.  My entry?  A dessert (of) course.

Helen's Delicious Pesach - Gluten-Free Cookbook Review

Until recently, there was this myth that a Passover recipe must either be bland  ("everything with flavor is forbidden") or the cardboard taste of matzoh is prevalent.  Neither are true in the slightest.   Such as the flavorful dishes Helen Goldrein provides in her Book Delicious Pesach (available now as an eBook).

Helen from family-friends-food provides many recipes that prove Passover recipes do not require  matzoh to be called a Passover recipe.  Her recipes are also 100% gluten-free.   If you have invited a guest with celiac disease who demurred due to the prevalence of gluten cooties in the usual Passover dishes, go ahead ... reinvite 'em.  They will certainly not starve at your Seder.  And neither will anyone else!

Meatballs with Lemon Ugly Sauce


I wanted to serve another batch of those amazing porcupine meatballs from just the other day, but one of our guests was not a fan of tomato sauce in any form.  Not even ketchup (yeah, what's up with that???).  Luckily, another sauce recipe happened to be waiting in the wings.  Unluckily, I made a slight error during the cooking procedure and the sauce came out looking quite gross and disgusting. 

But happily, it tasted quite delicious.  When you make this sauce, try not to make my jaw-dropping mistake.

Porcupine Meatballs - Easy


Hey, remember me?  Have you ever had one of those months where everything fell into place?  Where you had plenty of time to do anything you set out to do and nothing unexpected jumped into your path?

Me neither.

Black Sesame-Studded Tahini Cookies


I've shared peanut butter cookies.  I've shared almond butter cookies.  Today I am sharing tahini (ground sesame seed) cookies.

Tahini?  In a cookie???  Yes, Dear Reader.   A savory cookie for you to savor.
