I guess you could make this without the amazing brie surprise in the bottom of the bowl, but why would you!? LOL! Actually you can freeze this, but I don't know if the cheese would freeze very well. This is another delicious, healthy and easy recipe from the Best of Bridge. You can shorten the cooking time by about a half hour if you microwave the squash, as mentioned. Enjoy!
I adore this little lemon pound cake. It's the perfect size when you just need enough for 2 people. The bonus is... it's quick and easy to put together. I can have this in the oven in less then 5 minutes. How great is that?!? This doubles very nicely for when you need a little more but still don't need a big dessert. When doubling, don't double the baking soda, just leave it at 1/8 teaspoon.
A lovely Cajun berry and wine compote, redolent with vanilla and the unexpected flavor of bay. The restaurant used mixed berries, but if you have an abundance of one kind, this would be a good way to show them off. This was once on the menu at Artesia Restaurant on the North Shore, New Orleans, although I'm not sure it is anymore. Simple and elegant.
I was looking for Cajun seasoning for my New Year's Day black eyed peas. This is based on Julie Sahni's recipe in "Savoring Spices and Herbs" with a few alterations. Everyone loved the peas, btw. NOTES: I ground only 1/2 the herbs/spices for textural effect. I usually grind up a whole nutmeg & store in a jar so there's always an amount of fresh nutmeg on hand.
"Cook" time = grate & mix time.
From Ruth Reichl's Gourmet Weekly to you via my inbox, lol.
Her words: This scalloped potato dish is part of our culinary repertoire, and we hope it will become part of yours too. There is something about the texture of the potatoes surrounded by creamy goodness and topped by golden brown cheese that wows people. It is perfect for a buffet supper or potluck; in our experience, it is the first thing to disappear. The technique of starting the potatoes in a saucepan of half-and-half and ending them in a buttered gratin dish comes from the masterful Jacques Pépin.
Couldn't say it better myself, so I didn't. :) I did make minor tweaks to the ingredients/amounts.
