Those eggs @blue_dolphin - what's your, as rotuts would say, Rx?

My standard 6.5 min egg. Large eggs, direct from the fridge into boiling water for 6.5 min, then ice water til cool enough to peel.

The nice orange yolks are courtesy of my farmers market egg peeps who pasture the chickens in an organic orange grove so they get to run around and eat grubs & bugs and other tasty stuff.

According to  Moe, this was the best breakfast sandwich ever.( I love feeding him)


I had planned to roast this small Sterling Silver prime rib for dinner. I pre-salted it a couple of days ago.

Instead I roasted it this morning and


made Beef Dip Sandwiches on homemade baguette for breakfast.



I'm taking the same thing for lunch.

Good grief, I'm following that gorgeous, crusty bread and glistening, succulent beef with Boiled Kale on Toast!


From the Zuni Café Cookbook, this is one of the 4 ways this boiled kale is used.  The thick slices of bread (I used the Pan de Pueblo from a local bakery that uses some of their own milled corn), rubbed with garlic,  float on the boiled kale long enough to soak up some of the pot liquor and are topped with the kale, ribbons of prosciutto, shaved pecorino Romano, black pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.

meatloaf sandwich on rye.  as far as I am concerned the ONLY reason to make meatloaf is for the sandwiches later.

My meatloaf is labor intensive. The "night of" I don't appreciate it nearly as much as my husband and guests. I don't even care about it.. But the next day and the next after that is an unadulterated--and adulterated-- thrill. That's when dijon mustard comes a knockin'.

made a scramble this morning. Steak, potato, jalapeño, and onion




high falutin' eggy potatoes😁


sour cream(Julia Turshen's) pancakes with blueberries when John eventually wakes up.  In the meantime - maybe should be snacking while eGulleting - some Utz's fried dill pickle chips.  Made a quick trip to the Shoprite for the blueberries,  some Ben and Jerry's non-dairy ice cream for John, chips for him and saw those dill pickle chips and had to have them...

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

Not that I would turn my nose up to this meal at any time of day, here's a fairly breakfast-y breakfast:  an omelet with some fruit on the side. 


Specifically, Madeline's Omelette with Mustard Croûtons & Beaufort Cheese from The Zuni Café Cookbook   

The salad is also adapted from the same cookbook - arugula, fennel, toasted almonds and Cara Cara oranges in a sherry vinaigrette.

Onigirazu with egg, tomato and crawfish tails

Obviously my mold hasn't arrived yet.



My mold just arrived! Timely, too, considering it ships from Japan. Very cute, but the push-out flap doesn't look like it will last forever. I ordered it before I discovered the Italian Ashtray technique; area in two dimensions is almost identical. Of course I have already noticed a design flaw: the press-top is fitted, so you can't really adjust the thickness of the rice if you happen to want your rice squares a bit thinner. C'est la vie. On the other hand the life expectancy of an ashtray that routinely gets slammed on a wooden board may not be so great either. Next up is probably a Lox Omelet Onigirazu.

I would never have thought of cornbread for strata!  What a great idea.  It looks and sounds marvelous!  Care to share the recipe?

Thank you. I had made some cornbread the other day that was a bit on the dry side, and it definitely wasn't improving with age. There wasn't much left, but I really dislike food waste so I didn't want to just throw it away. I googled a few ideas, e.g. cornbread crumbs or croutons, but the idea of a strata appealed the most.


In addition to the cornbread, I used two medium sized eggs and I had the tomatoes, deli ham and swiss on-hand so I added those in. I don't normally keep milk or cream around because I don't use much of it, but I do have buttermilk powder from Bob's Red Mill, so I used that in conjunction in with some almond milk, just enough to soak everything. Salt and pepper of course, as well as nutmeg. After letting it sit overnight, I baked it for about a half hour at 350 F.


I was hungry and started to eat it immediately after taking it out of the oven, right after taking this picture. It was a bit soupy (which you can see in the pic if you look closely), so I should have let it rest for about ten minutes. It tasted better as I continued to eat as more of the liquids were absorbed into the bread.


I think a strata is an excellent use of old cornbread and I'll definitely make this again if I have leftovers. But, it didn't quite have the same custardy texture compared to a strata made with regular bread.

      When my mother recently passed away, because we are a scattered family, one of my younger brothers had the great idea of setting up a private Facebook page for the immediate family to talk in – mainly about funeral arrangements but also just in general.
      One topic, which I inadvertently started, was about her cooking. It’s fair to say, and she would agree, that cooking was not her forte. She was able to feed us but it was never exciting. That’s me being respectful.
      So we were joking amongst ourselves about that when the subject of her two most ‘original’ recipes came up and we each tried to remember exactly what was in them. Here, to the best of our ability, is what we agreed on.
      Pasta Mish-Mash
      Pasta. This had to be Marshall’s macaroni, a Scottish speciality and the only pasta I ever ate until I was about 18 years-old, apart from tinned spaghetti, usually in the form of spaghetti hoops.

      Bacon. This would normally be unsmoked Ayrshire back bacon. Not American bacon!

      Onions. White onions. We didn’t know they came in other colours.
      Tomatoes. Scottish tomatoes are surprisingly good.
      Salt. Common iodised table salt. You know. Natural salt. None of your fancy sea flavoured salt nonsense!

      Pepper. Black pre-ground and stale.

      Boil pasta according to pack instructions. Or a bit longer if you get distracted. Drain.
      Cut bacon into pieces. Chop onion approximately finely. Chop tomatoes into eighths. Fry bacon and vegetables. When ready add drained pasta and mix. Apply seasoning if you remember. Even if you remember, under season.

      Polish Salad
      During WWII, around 17,000 Polish soldiers were stationed in Scotland, first temporarily in the border areas but later in east Scotland where my mother lived. (Her elder sister married one of them). Family lore has it (from my mother) that she learned this recipe from one or more of those soldiers.

      I’m fairly certain that there was little if anything Polish about it, but suppose its possible it was those soldiers’ attempt to recreate something from home without really knowing the recipe and having to use whatever they could find in the way of ingredients.

      If anyone here is Polish, of Polish descent or just knows more about Polish food than I do knows of any Polish dish that this could even vaguely resemble, I’d love to know. It was memorably distinctive - bright purple. I'm sure it glowed in the dark.


      Hard boiled eggs

      Pickled beetroot (store bought and pickled in malt vinegar)

      Heinz Tomato Ketchup

      Brown Sauce, preferably HP Sauce.

      Chop all the ingredients except the ketchup and brown sauce into small pieces and mix together.
      Mix ketchup and brown sauce in a 50:50 ratio, and fold into the other ingredients. If too dry, add a little of the beetroot pickling liquid.

      I've already polished off half a box of Harvest Crunch Granola today. I haven't really eaten cereal in years, but these crunchy granola clusters are hard to resist.
      What's your favourite cereal, and what do you eat with it?
      (Big bowl, big spoon, and 2% milk for me.)

      Most of us take lunch boxes to the office. Some lucky people can warm their food up at work The rest have to eat sandwiches. Sandwiches are great, but even if we absolutely love them we could get fed up with them in the end. Regardless of where we work we can save the situation with salads. Every day we can prepare a different one and we have an entirely new lunch. If we also take an attractive dish, we have something that is not only tasty but also glamorous.

      I would like to share with you the recipe for a salad which looks equally as beautiful as it is yummy. The chickpeas and groats make it a satisfying and balanced meal, after which we won't be hungry. I think that if you prepare your lunch in the morning and plan to eat it at lunchtime, we should keep the salad and the dip separately. Otherwise, after a few hours in the jar, we have an unappetising dish with squishy lettuce, which isn't what we want, is it?

      Ingredients (for 2 people)
      1 beetroot
      200g of tinned chickpeas
      100g of bulgur
      1 carrot
      1 fresh green pepper
      4 lettuce leaves
      200g of natural yoghurt
      handful of minced chives
      1 small chili pepper
      salt and pepper

      Clean the beetroot and bake or boil it. Grate the beetroot and carrot. Cut the pepper into thin strips. Boil the bulgur in salty water. Arrange in layers in a jar the beetroot, chickpeas, pepper, bulgur, carrot and lettuce. Dice the chili pepper. Mix the natural yoghurt with the chives and chili pepper. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Add the dip to the salad just before serving.

      I hate getting up in the morning. My household knows that before 8 o'clock I'm unbearable, and because almost every day I wake up much earlier, I tend to be unbearable more frequently than I want. Every extra five minutes of sleep is priceless, so I appreciate a good breakfast that is not too complicated and is quick to prepare.

      Recently, I have been preparing breakfast with groats and flakes. This time I chose cuscus. This product is a cross between pasta and groats, and it doesn't need long to prepare. It is enough to add hot water or milk and leave for a few minutes. I added some fresh pineapple, cranberries and banana. I spiced it up with some hot chili pepper .

      Ingredients (for 2 people)
      125g of cuscus
      400ml of almond milk
      1 tablespoon of honey
      1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
      2 slices of fresh pineapple
      1 teaspoon of minced chili pepper
      150g of fresh cranberries
      2 tablespoons of brown sugar
      1 banana
      4 tablespoons of flaked almonds

      Wash the cranberries and put them into a pot. Add two tablespoons of water and the brown sugar. Boil, stirring gently until the cranberries burst and the sauce has thickened. Boil the almond milk with the vanilla essence. Pour the milk onto the cuscus and leave for 5-7 minutes. Slice the banana and roast the almond flakes. Peel the pineapple and dice it. Mix the pineapple, chili pepper and honey. Add the pineapple to the cuscus and mix it in. Put the mixture into two bowls. Put the cranberries and banana on the top and sprinkle with the almond flakes.

      Enjoy your meal!

      I developed this recipe for a friend who wound up with many cans of Solo brand apricot filling and was wondering what to make with them. I adapted this recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum's Sour Cream Coffee Cake, found on page 90 of the Cake Bible. The apricot filling works it way down through the cake and winds up near the bottom of the pan, making an attractive top later when the cake is inverted. Please use some sort of ring pan that holds at least 9 cups. You may substitute butter for the toasted almond oil, but remember that the oil adds flavor. I specifically developed this recipe with the home cook in mind, regular salted butter, and AP flour work well here. To reduce the sodium, use unsalted butter.  
      113 grams (1 stick) salted butter
      26 grams toasted almond oil
      200 grams sugar
      6 grams vanilla extract
      4 egg yolks
      160 grams regular sour cream (do not use low fat or fat free)
      50 grams almond meal
      175 grams all-purpose flour
      2 1/2 grams baking powder
      2 1/2 grams baking soda
      12 ounces (1 can) Solo Apricot Filling
      12 Servings
      Preheat the oven to 350°
      Spray a 9+ cup tube or Bundt pan with non-stick spray or grease with an oil & soy lecithin blend.
      Lightly toast the almond meal in a frying pan on the stove top until it has a light beige color and has a mild fragrance. Allow to cool.
      Cream together the butter, oil, and sugar. Add the vanilla and egg yolks, mix until the mixture is even and creamy. Add the sour cream and mix well. Add the cooled almond flour and mix well.
      Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture and mix until it everything is evenly incorporated. Do not overmix the batter.
      Place 2/3 of the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Place the apricot filling in an even layer on top, keeping a small space between the filling and the pan's edges. Place the remaining batter on top and smooth to create a relatively even surface.
      Bake for approximately 50 minutes at 350° or until the top is dark brown and springs back to a light touch.
      Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Invert the pan onto a serving plate. Cool and serve. Be cautious about serving this hot, as the apricot filling can cause serious burns. When fully cooled, cover or wrap in plastic wrap to store. Will keep for several days in a cool, dry place.
