This is an adopted recipe. I did a bit of Googling and learned that it is a Polish cookie! The spelling should be 'bugija' and it means "liar's cookies" as in "Have you been eating the cookies?" "No! Honest, I haven't." "Then what is all that powdered sugar doing on your chest?" Bugia, or liar's cookies, leave a telltale trail.
Nifty, huh? Enjoy!
We ate at Bar Americain where I had a perfect rib eye steak & the 7 of us shared every side dish available - YUM! I had their Pear Martini, then I had another, then I asked for the recipe & our server got it for me!!! Here it is...
I found this on the web when I found no recipes using cardoon/cardon/Khorchef/Wild Artichoke/Spanish Artichoke. This ingredient is highlighted as a typical North African/Middle Eastern ingredient in 9/07 Topic of the Month. Seems there should be at least ONE recipe here. ;) Besides, it looks really tasty!
A Beninese (West Africa) peanut recipe posted for Zaar World Tour II. 'Cooking time' includes sitting time. Don't be put off by the 'time to make'- most of the time it is just sitting! I am not sure how many sticks of peanut butter you get from this...if you try it, please let me know!
I made this for a ham tonight but it would work for any other kind of meat or maybe even fish. DH's comment, "this stuff ROCKS!" It is loosely based on many recipes I saw on the internet, none of which were quite right, imo. A very simple but sublime sauce. You could add fresh pomegranate seeds or use them as garnish or just eat them as my 6yo did.
I saw something similar on a buffet in Las Vegas. So I decided to make my own version. This feeds a crowd & multiplies/divides easily. Time to cook the grains is not included. This can be served hot or cold. Feel free to use different ingredients according to tastes & availability. This recipe was invented for substituting - it's a blueprint for a fabulous fiber-filled lowfat salad.
