Cranberry-Topped Baked Brie #ThanksgivingLeftovers


One of the best things about being part of a food blogging community: all the great recipes! There is never a dearth of ideas on how to make something or how to use a particular ingredient. So, when Ellen from Family Around the Table suggested a Thanksgiving Leftovers event, I raised my hand to help coordinate. You can never have enough ideas on how to transform leftovers into other dishes, right?

Cranberry-Topped Baked Brie

This is so easy that I'm almost embarrassed to call it a recipe. It's more of a procedure than anything. You can swap in any kind of rind cheese; you can use any cranberry or other fruit compote; and you can serve it with crackers instead of bread or just as is. Really! It's that simple.


Ingredients

  • round of brie
  • leftover cranberry sauce or other fruit compote (I actually used the Pickled Cranberries from our Moroccan Thanksgiving!)
  • leftover bread, sliced (or use crackers)



Procedure
Preheat oven to 350° F. 

Place brie in a small baking dish; I used a cedar-lined baking sheet. Bake until warm and just softened, approximately 10 minutes). 

Transfer brie to a plate with cranberries. Serve immediately.

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
