  1. Wanted something chocolatey, so I made a small chocolate Bundt with glaze. I usually half the recipe, and it fits perfectly in this little pan I got years ago. Since there is only two of us, a regular Bundt is way too much cake.

    Thanks, they came out really good. A little tedious, but I knew what I was getting into 😊. That's not the one. Here's a link for the one I used. Stuffed Arancini

    Decided to try making potstickers. Came out really good. Pork, Napa cabbage, scallions, garlic, Ginger. Cleaned out there produce drawer for a veggie stir fry (pretty sad ), and brown rice.

    You know, they aren't that hard to make. It just takes patience stirring risotto, which doesn't take that long. I used a recipe from Epicurious, and there is a video of how to make them as well. Give it a shot 😊. I breaded all of them, cooked what we needed, then put the rest in the freezer.

    Breakfast 2020!

    I would do the grits, tomato and egg, but I guess I'm not a proper Southerner. I can't do collards or turnip greens. The smell would run me from the house πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ˜†
  6. Make the waffles, they are great! It made eight Belgian waffles. I froze the leftover ones, and they reheat great.

    Breakfast 2020!

    Had a small get together with my mom's cousin. Decided to try a recipe I had saved in my Epicurious recipe box. French toast BLT. Challah, bacon, tomato, avocado, gruyere, arugula and a roasted garlic vinaigrette. Nice change from sweet French toast. Also, roasted Yukon gold potatoes and Mumm's Rose.

    Made arancini tonight. I tried a recipe from Epicurious. Really good, I like the lemon in them. I stuffed with a cube off fontina. Served with simple marinara, and a salad of lettuce and tomatoes from our garden. And a Chardonnay 😁.

    I am removing. Just do, doesn't appeal to leave it for some reason. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ I might try it next time. Right now I have about 5 fresh blossoms in the fridge, the only zucchini growing right now are about 2" long. I'll check tomorrow and whatever flowers I get, I'm going to stuff them then.

    Still trying to get thru the blossoms and squash. Squash blossoms pizza with fresh mozzarella pearls, shaved zucchini, light tomato sauce, garlic oil, lemon zest and chile flakes. Also, sausage and pepperoni pizza.

    Chipotle Pork Sliders and store bought onion rings. A few years ago, I found this recipe on Epicurious. It's a nice change from beef burgers. We tend to like slider size over a huge burger, so I started making them like that. And Trader Joe's has slider buns now that we keep in the freezer. The burger is ground pork, Chipotle, garlic and adobo. I make a Mayo with adobo, lime and cilantro, and it's garnished with avocado, fresh tomatillo slices , cilantro and cheese.

    Haven't had a steak in probably a year. Picked up a ribeye, made a compound butter. Roasted Vidalia onions, and made potato cakes a la Cook's Illustrated. My mother is not a big meat eater, and if she has beef, WELL done πŸ˜‘πŸ˜•. Oh well. Probably why we don't have it much.

    Not the best photo, but, Pan seared salmon with polenta and a warm tomato salad. Sauteed zucchini (what else? πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ) and one of the seared scallops I made for my mom since she doesn't eat fish.

    I just fried this time. I would like too stuff with goat cheese, but my mother doesn't like it. So, maybe ricotta next time. I'm still experimenting with the batter, this was with club soda, gonna try beer next time. I really cut the leaves back on ours. The flowers were getting hidden, so once I did, the bees were getting back to work. When I removed the stamens, I was considering doing just that, but there weren't any flowers ready. We've only had about 5 so far, but that's been plenty. I've got two now I'm trying to decide what to do with. I would rather have the blossoms though ☺️.

    Raided the squash plant and made fried squash blossoms. It's only had a few zucchini on it, so I'm eating the blossoms. More taste anyway 😁.

    Pesto Pizza! Basil and early girls from the garden. Crust is the master dough with starter from The Pizza Bible (Tony's pizza in North Beach is my favorite). Cooked on the grill on a pizza stone. Drizzle of arbequina and fresh basil. So good!
  18. Try the CI blueberry recipe. It's different from a lot of scone recipes. It's got a little bit of a lamination technique. And the liquid is a combo of sour cream and milk. I've made cream scones, butter and cream, buttermilk. Tried a lot of different versions. My mother loves scones, and she said this one is her favorite. They are soft, and not dry at all.
  19. American Scones to me seem similar to a southern biscuit, just with added stuff. So, no need for the jam, etc. They can be either sweet or savory, I make one with gruyere, dill and scallions that is very popular, and I'll make bacon, cheddar and chives. Anything really. I remember my grandmother asking me for "one of those sweet biscuits." So, that's why I think more biscuit (not an English biscuit 😊) than anything else. And I agree with you about Migoya πŸ˜‘πŸ˜Š.
  20. Back when my mother had to pick fresh cherries (20lbs), I decided to help use them up by making Cherry Almond Scones. I used the blueberry recipe from Cook's Illustrated. Added a little almond extract to the dough, then topped with sliced almonds before baking. Made a double batch that's stashed in the freezer.
  21. Happy 81st Birthday to my mom's cousin Peggy! We had a pizza party and cake. She loves white cake, so I made a scratch WASC and the 3 types of pizza. Sorta Margherita, one with a lot of stuff, and arugula and prosciutto.
  22. If you are spraying on dark chocolate, you'll need to add titanium dioxide to make the colors show up. As is, you will only see the color on white chocolate, and it may still be light.
  23. Made a couple quick things for my dad for his birthday/Father's Day this week. Beer caramels, some just wrapped and a few dipped in milk chocolate with smoked Maldon flakes. This was a recipe that I hadn't tried before, and they came out too soft. So, I chilled a few as I was dipping, but they will probably have little blow outs. I used an aged Belgian style beer called Allagash. And, the other was a request from my mom. Spanish red skin peanut clusters with white chocolate. But, my dad loves them too.
  24. I think there is too much liquid in the recipe. From the combo of the egg, milk and yogurt. And, the sugar seems a little low, which could affect browning. Also, I brush the top with either cream or melted butter and sprinkle with sugar. Most scone recipes bake at a higher temp as well. I usually bake at 400F convection. I have made several types of scone recipes over the years, and my favorite that I have found for any type is the blueberry recipe from Cooks illustrated. I've made savory, Cherry, etc with it, and it works great. In this recipe, the butter is grated on a box grater. Makes a big difference in flakiness and also doesn't need to be worked in as much.
