    Remembering Anna N

    It is so sad to hear. Anna was truly an amazing person, clever, funny, talented. It was a pleasure knowing her, joking about our opposite food opinions, and admiring the delicious food she made. I will forever remember her fondly.

    Lupini beans in a slightly sweet curry with plenty of coriander seeds and tamarind, cashew. Okra in yogurt sauce with turmeric, garlic and hing. Black pepper rice. Not pictured - home made mango chutney.
  4. I would say that for me, mac and cheese indeed implies a shape of pasta, but much more, it implies a specific kind of cheese sauce - one made of a somewhat sharp cheese such as cheddar, is on the rich side, and often made with a roux base. It is likely so because "mac and cheese" is a term I'll use untranslated to Hebrew, and so is distinct to me from just any pasta with cheese. Think of "shrimp scampi" which makes little sense to an Italian speaker, but perfect sense to Americans.
  5. The nuts are toasted. I chopped everything medium fine. You could also do a rough chop. I liked how they are all shiny off white outside and marbled brown inside. Do try, nuts are great in meringue. I also added a touch of almond extract. There are also cookies combining meringue and shortbread popular in Israel. E.g. https://www.onesarcasticbaker.com/butter-meringue-cookies/ (haven't tried this recipe).
  6. Ugly but tasty meringue cookies with hazelnuts, almonds and dark chocolate.
  7. Mac and cheese with Gochujang and peanuts.

    Yeah, that's a thing. Potato filling is also common. Looks decedent, if messy
