Sesame Panna Cotta #TakeTheChallenge #SimplySesame #Sponsor

This is a sponsored post written on behalf of Simply Sesame. All opinions are my own.

I joined in the fun for the Simply Sesame Blogger Challenge and received three flavors of Simply Sesame to try: Vanilla with Almond Bits, Pistachio Morsels with a hint of Cardamom, and Pure Roasted Sesame.

First, I decided to try using it as I would tahini and made Charred Cauliflower for Thanksgiving.


Then, I whirled it into hummus; and we slathered it on toast. But, for the challenge, I wanted to try my hand at a Simply Sesame sweet and settled on creating a Sesame Panna Cotta. I made this recipe three times with each version of Simply Sesame I received. And, hands down, the family loved the batch made with Pure Roasted Sesame.



Ingredients makes eight 2-ounce servings

  • 1 envelope gelatin
  • 1/4 C cold water
  • 1-3/4 C organic heavy cream
  • 1/4 C organic whole milk
  • 1/2 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • 3 T Simply Sesame paste
  • black sesame seeds for garnish

Procedure
Dissolve the gelatin in cold water in a medium mixing bowl.
  
Place all the other ingredients in a medium saucepan and heat till it begins to steam. Do not let it boil. Whisk until smooth. Let cool for 10 minutes, then pour the warm cream into the gelatin and stir till completely dissolved.
 

Pour the mixture into your serving containers, leaving a little bit of space at the top - in case you want to top it with any sauce or whipped cream.


Let chill until set, but at least four hours. Serve cold.


To serve, garnish with black sesame seeds.

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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
