#BrunchWeek 2014 Shout-Outs: Courtney, Ashley, & Alice

And the 2014 #BrunchWeek blogger intros continue...


Courtney at Neighboorfood  has an entire gluten-free section of her blog. While I am not gluten-free, several of our close friends are. So, I'm excited about trying Courtney's GF Strawberry Lemonade Valentine Lintzer Cookies. And her Tomato-Bacon Jam had me longing for a jar. As soon as I see some fresh tomatoes, I'm making it!

Ashley runs the blog Quarter Life Crisis Cuisine. Her favorite foods are tacos and sushi. And I adore her To-Cook List. I, too, plan to attempt homemade bagels one of these days. Check out her Greek Lemon Chicken Soup, Campfire Quiche (I'm taking that recipe on our annual 10-day camping trip), and Gruyere Apple Tart. I've always wanted to make a cheese + apple dessert; I just never got around to it. I will now.

Alice is one Hip Foodie Mom. And she freely admits "I am hopelessly addicted to coffee, chocolate cake and any and all Asian inspired recipes." As luck would have it, one of the first recipes I found on her blog is one that I had at a brewery last weekend...and I was wondering where to start to recreate it. Thanks, Alice...this is perfect: Pork Belly Lettuce Wraps. Her Extra Spicy-Honey-Sriracha Chicken Wings are also calling my name. And on the chocolate cake side of things, her Chocolate Mini Bundts are drool-worthy.

Looking forward to the recipes that this trio will be posting next week. Hooray for #BrunchWeek.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

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

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
