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!

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
