Monday Recipes


Bunny Mary


I've long been a fan of Bloody Marys as evidenced by my Beefed Up Brown Mary, Charred Bloody Mary, and probably a handful that I haven't bothered to post. This adults-only Easter cocktail is a slightly sweet, slightly spicy Bloody Mary made with carrot juice instead of tomato juice...hence the 'bunny' part. Cheers! 

Ingredients makes one cocktail

  • 1 lemon wedge (I used a Meyer lemon)
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 4 ounces carrot juice
  • 2 dashes hot sauce
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pinch salt (I used a Habanero salt) + more for rimming the glass
  • 1 pinch pepper flakes
  • 1 pinch smoked paprika
  • olives
  • pickle ribbon
  • Also needed: ice, cocktail strainer, pint glass, toothpick

Procedure

Pour some salt onto a small plate. Rub a lemon wedge along the lip of a glass. Place rim down in the salt and roll until every edge is coated. Spear pickle ribbon and olives onto a toothpick and set aside.

Place ice in a pint glass and squeeze the remaining lemon juice from the wedge. Drop in the lemon. Add in the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Strain into prepared glass and garnish. Serve immediately.

    1. I'm serving up a rabbit recipe on Wednesday! But I've served mini sliders as a bloody mary garnish; I guess I could do rabbit skewers. LOL.

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
