Snickerdoodle Buttermilk Muffins

I needed a quick grab-and-go breakfast while the boys ran off to Surf Camp and I headed to the office. Next time, I'll double this; it only made 6 muffins.

[printable recipe for Snickerdoodle Buttermilk Muffins]
Cupcake Ingredients
  • 6 T softened butter
  • 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 C flour
  • 1 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 C buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 t  organic hazelnut extract

Topping Ingredients
  • 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1 T ground cinnamon
  • 2 T butter

Procedure
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 6 muffin cups with butter; I used my stoneware baking dish.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat till lightened and smooth.

In another bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and ground cinnamon. Add to the butter mixture, alternating with the buttermilk and hazelnut extract. Stir until just moistened. The batter will be slightly lumpy.

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling each hollow about three-fourths full. Bake until the muffins are golden and springy to the touch, approximately 20 to 25 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 5 minutes. Unmold the muffins and let stand until cool enough to handle.

For the topping, in a small, shallow bowl, blend together the sugar and cinnamon. Melt the butter and pour it into another small bowl. Holding the bottom of a muffin, dip the top into the melted butter and, then, into the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Coat as evenly as possible and tap to remove excess sugar. Let cool completely before serving.

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
