Hazelnut Milk Punch

I first encountered milk punch on a trip to New Orleans. And there are a few things I love about it: first, it's super easy to make; second, it's fairly flexible as you can use whatever syrup you have on-hand or can even use maple syrup or honey if you wish; and third, it's a kicked, but simple, no-egg eggnog. And we love eggnog.


You might remember we did an eggnog tasting during the holidays. So, it's no surprise that this cocktail is one of my favorites. Enjoy and cheers! Just beware, it's deceptively smooth and goes down a little too easily.


Ingredients makes 2 cocktails
  • 1-1/2 ounces whiskey or bourbon (you can also use rum, if you like, but I'm a whiskey girl)
  • 1 t hazelnut syrup (my Homemade Hazelnut Syrup)
  • 4 to 6 ounces milk (you can use non-dairy milk, if you like, but we use whole fat cow's milk)
  • fresh nutmeg for serving
  • also needed: ice; large tumbler, cocktail shaker, or measuring cup

Procedure
Place whiskey, hazelnut syrup, and milk into large tumbler, cocktail shaker, or measuring cup.


Stir well to combine. Place ice in serving glasses. Pour milk mixture over the ice. Grate nutmeg over the top for garnish.

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
