SRC May Reveal: Baking and Boys

Secret Recipe Club
It's time for the May Secret Recipe Club reveal...

What's the Secret Recipe Club? It's a group started by Amanda of Amanda's Cookin'. Each month, every participant is assigned to someone else's blog from which they pick a recipe - or two - to make and post, but it's all a secret until the big day. Today's the day. I always love a kitchen challenge and some culinary adventure.

This month I was assigned Baking and Boys. Katrina, a fellow resident of Testosterone Land, writes "My life as of late is lovin' these four boys and my husband, too. Oh, and I bake, too." I can relate. And bake Katrina does. Along with two friends, she created a recipe for Hard-Boiled Egg Cookies. How about Chocolate Truffle Tartlets with Andes Mint and Oreos? Her Apple Tartlet for Fall looks delectable. I think I gained ten pounds just by reading her blog!

From her chicken pot pie post, I made this version. I followed her instructions pretty much to a 't', so click over there for the recipe. I did change up the vegetables, using parsnips, fresh peas, leeks and rhubarb. And I used fresh mint as a seasoning. Apologies in advance for not creating a more thorough post, but I'm out the door for a funeral right now. Sorry. Thanks to Jane for posting this into the link-up for me.


Thank you, Katrina, for the great inspiration. I can't remember the last time I made a pot pie


  1. Hi Camilla! I was assigned your blog this month and made Funky Monkey S'mores. So yummy!

  2. Ah! Thanks for baking from my blog. So fun. And yes, baking is my forte. ;) Your post makes me want pot pie for dinner! I have never put rhubarb in something savory. Sounds like a must try! Sorry you've had to go to a funeral. :)

  3. Rhubarb - I've never thought to put that in a savory dish, let alone a pot pie. Fabulous idea, Camilla. Sending you good thoughts for today.

  4. mmm, chicken pot pie. i'm sorry for your loss.

  5. This looks delicious! I made chicken pot pie for my SRC post this month for group C--great minds, huh?! :-)

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
