Warm Andean Lemon Verbena Chocolate Pudding #sponsor

 
Last week, I posted several recipes for #BrunchWeek, and online event that was hosted by Terri from Love and Confections and Shaina from Take A Bite Out Of Boca. Those gals worked really hard to rally all of the bloggers; and they lined up some generous sponsors who provided us with inspiring ingredients.

But the days were short. And though I posted all but one of the event days, I have more recipes to share with you! This doesn't really qualify as a brunch dish anyway.

Tonight I was craving something sweet and decided to whisk together a chocolate pudding with some of the Anden Lemon Verbena Chocolate from Pacari. I also used products from Nielsen-Massey and Dixie Crystals.*

So easy. So rich. I like my chocolate pudding warm. It would be just a delicious chilled, I'm sure.

Ingredients
  • ½ C flour
  • dash of salt
  • ½ C granulated sugar (I used Dixie Crystals)
  • 2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3 C milk
  • 6 oz good quality chocolate (I used the Anden Lemon Verbena Chocolate from Pacari and  65% chocolate from Trader Joe's), chopped
  • ½ t vanilla paste (I used Nielsen-Massey)
  • ½ t pure vanilla extract

Procedure
Pour the milk into a heavy sauce pan. I actually made this in my Dutch oven. Whisk in the flour, salt, sugar, and cocoa powder until there are no lumps. Place the pot on medium heat and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring continuously. Scrape the bottom and sides of the pot to keep it from burning.


When the mixture had thickened, add in the chocolate, vanilla paste, and vanilla extract. Stir continuously for an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until the chocolate is completely melted and the pudding smooth. Spoon into individual serving dishes.

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!

#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
