    I didn't make it - my wife did, sheet gelatin is a must. Otherwise I know it's not too crazy, she got the recipe from Peach Melba in Patisserie: A Masterclass in Classic and Contemporary Patisserie. Which is a way fancier dessert that incorporates panna cotta. This is an awesome cookbook full of very fancy desserts that are amazing! If you like to bake it's highly recommended.

    Lunch 2020

    Lunch today, "Quick" tomato sauce with peas and potatoes, from our 1000 indian cookbook I've posted from before. It's quick because she calls for tomato sauce instead of starting from tomatoes, thee's more then 3.5 tbls of spices in here. 2 Serrano peppers for heat. My wife got pureed tomatoes instead of tomato sauce, still worked fine - added plenty of water (usually her recipes add more water then we like) and got the consistency really good. This was much better we even expected so we'll be making it again. Oh and it has Fenugreek leaves in it - which I am so happy we discovered years ago when we got this cookbook. Did you know this is what can be used to make imitation maple syrup with?

    Lunch 2020

    Best Vegetarian Chilli from one of the america's test kitchen / cook's illustrated cookbooks. It has bulgar wheat and mushrooms so it's "meaty" I made a small loaf of basic french lean bread from modernist bread. This is the 2nd loaf so it's had more time in the fridge, thus the nice air bubbles on the crust.

    Dinner 2020

    A few years ago Saffron closed down. It was one of our favorite restaurants in Minneapolis. Lucky for us the chef/ owner published a cookbook. We finally tackled making Duck Kefta Tagine with Sweet & Spicy Tomato Sauce. It took ordering a lot of unique ingredients but we recreated close to what was served at the restaurant! It's SO GOOD!!!! Here's our "tangine": And then my bowl: We'll be making this again and again

    Lunch today, Fish and Chips! Fish is cod. Bit more involved then we usually do for lunch, but my wife teaches in the later afternoon/evening so can't do this mid week and we picked up groceries too late on Sunday to make this on the weekend. Very nummy

    Dinner 2020

    Dinner today was totally Japanese. つくねとごはんとてりやきを食べます My attempt at Japanese lol, it's Tsukune (chicken meatballs), Rice, Teriyaki dipping sauce and I was drinking sake (not mentioned in my Japanese). The rice is in a rice bowl we picked up in Japan, the sake cups / bottle as well. Even the sauce is a small bowl we got in Japan, I should have put it on my plate, that's how I used it. This is a recipe in Modernist Cuisine and it's my goto recipe for dark chicken meat.

    Lunch 2020

    Once in a while I pull a recipe out of a cook book and try it, this is Corn Cakes with Creole Shrimp. It's from Sara Moulton Cooks at Home. We won't be making this again. My wife liked it, but the corn cakes remind me of potato pancakes my mother would make and I couldn't stand.

    Butternut Squash Tart with Goat Cheese My wife saw this in a catalog, and decided to make it. Next time we'll add some more complexity to the filling, it's mostly all sweet.

    We like AB's Shakshuka so much we've made it a few times. This is just my 3 eggs, my wife eats 2 eggs. We only put 5 in. It makes more then the 2 of us can eat so we save the left over sauce and eat with Nan and it's very tasty.
  20. This is on their site: (https://www.nomiku.com/) Not surprised, I backed in the KS, had problems with it and was told clean it much more often. So I rarely use it - our polysci model has larger tubing or something for the water so it just keeps on trucking other then the electrical problem I had to send it in to get fixed. Though it's a real work horse for us.

    Lunch 2019

    For Lunch Saturday I made Alton Brown's Shakshuka, we've made Serious Eats Version before, AB's required more planning. I started the lemons 6 weeks ago. We did 7 eggs, this was amazing, way more complex in taste then the SE version, bit more work to plan, but once you make the prerequisites you have quantity for making quite a few of this.

    New Orleans–Style Red Beans and Rice Made this yesterday, let cool down and reheat today - recipe says this is for optimal texture - and had some for lunch - this was excellent. Our first time trying this - it was mentioned on reddit at the top of a thread about making once and enjoying all week. We should get 5 servings out of what I made yesterday. I used a smoked ham hock for the first time - brings some nice smokiness and complexity! I replaced the andouille sausage with hot italian and it works well IMO.

    Tonight, I winged something - Our Indian cookbook has a Pilaf with Caramelized Onions and Broccoli We make a smaller amount of rice then one would want to do in a pot, so I made the rice in the rice maker, made the caramelized onions w/ cloves, green cardamom, and cinnamon. The broccoli is fried with black mustard seeds and cumin. This is all tossed with the rice, and was REALLY GOOD. We'll be amping up the spices even more next time.

    Lunch 2019

    Decided to try something we've never tried from our Indian cookbook I've posted pictures from many times. It's supposed to be a boondi curry. But we don't have a boondi jahara - so we used a spoon w/ holes from a spherification kit. Alas the boondi are not spheres, but they still taste good. It's fried chickpea batter. The sauce is tomato, onion (minced and sliced), turmeric (of course - look at the color), cumin, cilantro, yogurt, and cayenne. We didn't put the boondi in the sauce until it was at the table, wanted to make sure they were as crisp as possible. This took a while to make but was really quite tasty. Keeps on with the Indian cuisine can look strange vibe 😉

Savory was represented by Ricotta cheese, zucchini, tomato, with garlic and olive oil: Desert was a honeycrisp apples with cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar: Not overly sweet, just GOOD! I told my wife we could do these again She found the recipe for the savory in ATK's recipes for 2; winged the apple tart, I provided knife skills.
