"GORP" is actually an acronym that means Good Old Raisins and Peanuts. These "cookies" aim to be a cheaper on-the-go meal/snack option than something prepackaged like a Cliff Bar. This recipe is also vegan, if you groove that way.
I've been on an Asian-inspired cooking kick lately, and with the winter weather I set out to create the perfect eggroll. (Well, technically these are spring rolls.) This recipe is very flexible. Use any ground meat you want and it should work just fine. Add any other veggies you like, but don't use too many wet ingredients. Don't fear the deep-frying! It is worth the trouble. I recommend corn oil. These freeze very well, and in just 4 minutes fry to perfection in 350 degree oil. Enjoy them wrapped in a lettuce leaf with some shredded carrot and chopped fresh basil. The best sauce for dipping these is a sweet chili sauce with a dash of vinegar and nuoc mam.
Caffè Gelato con Buccia d'Arancia. A traditional gelato with the refreshing flavours of espresso and oranges.
I whipped up this recipe as a way to use up some whole milk on a hot spring day. You'll need some sort of ice cream maker to freeze this properly. The ground espresso adds a speckled colour and interesting texture, but is optional.
Deliciously remixed Asian-styled dumplings, simmered gently, and then pan-fried to golden perfection. I made these with my mother on a whim. I make no claims to its culinary authenticity, just some foods I thought would go together.
This is a twist on a simple key-lime pie recipe, I invented it for a family reunion, about one hour ago. One advantage it has over the traditional recipe is that it is naturally greenish, not yellow. The other advantage is that it is very, very tasty. You can dress this up any way you would like, and you may use any crust you wish. I just didn't feel like a store-bought crust today.
I wanted a burger, but didn't have any meat handy. Then this inspiring use for my homemade hummus popped into my mind!
Serve like a burger, or any way you like.
Excellent on dark rye, and beautiful too!
This is a vegetarian knock-off of an amazing version of Basil Chicken someone made for me. The colours are breath-taking. I adopted her main ideas for my Basil Squash, but my version is so much lower-fat and healthier!
My sister's favourite cake. This one only took three tries to get everything right, but WOW.
A new family favourite that made a splash with its 2007 Christmas dessert table debut.
(Note: This is NOT a traditional recipe, this MY interpretation of a traditional recipe. Therefore, this recipe DOES NOT and WILL NOT ever correctly include "goats milk" because I don't like it, and I don't cook with it.)
For years, my grandmother has made her special lasagna for occasions. Since she doesn't get to do this as much anymore, I figured I should invent my own signature lasagna to fill in the void. I experimented with this recipe all fall; I think this is a treat to be reckoned with! The different steps all take time and planning, but can be done over the course of a few days. This is totally worth the wait.
This basic chocolate cake uses less sugar, and extra cocoa. The coffee adds depth to the flavour. I left out extra oil in favour of applesauce, and chose whole-wheat flour for a more healthy cake, as well.
I developed these to be hearty, healthful, and delicious. The flaxseed is good for you in all sorts of ways. You may cut the sugar out entirely if you like to increase the healthful apsects of the muffin.
