From "Brassicas" by Laurel B. Russell. Greens substitute for the more familiar escarole in this soup. Alas, the rabbits found my Chinese broccoli, so this will have to wait until I get to market. I anticipate possible reducing the amount of salt.
From The Perfect Pantry blog. Author Lydia Walshin lives in a log cabin in Rhode Island and relies upon pantry staples. I hope to make this soon, as pomegranate molasses is an ingredient I really like.
From the blog "Foodie with Family". I have not made this, but this would be great for a potluck, picnic or party. The blogger says that it makes a lot, but that it will keep for about 5 days. I took a guess at servings, for all I know it may serve more.
I have to admit that I have never even heard of this - I guess I just did not party enough when I was young! And the few times I did, I just might have appreciated this soup. This is a sweet-and-sour sauerkraut soup - I am looking forward to trying it once the we have a cool night. Adapted from gourmantineblog.com
From "Baking Sourdough Bread" by Goran Soderin and Georgel Stachal. This is a very interesting new book that explains the sourdough process very well. I have not yet made this bread, but hope to, as I just love rye. Prep time does not include the rising time. The dough requires two days to make! These have to be rather small loaves, given the amount of flour.
From "Baking Sourdough Bread" by Goran Soderin and Georgel Stachal. This book is very informative regarding sourdough baking. These rolls are slightly sweet - I have not made them yet and times are estimated. Rising time is not included below, but is about 1 1/2 hours.
From Food and Wine Magazine. Vadouvan is a French-style curry powder, with members of the allium family adding flavor. It is a mild curry. There is at least one recipe posted, and you can also get it online and from specialty shops. The ribs do release a fair amount of fat, so you want to be sure to use a pan with sides. The overnight marinating in the dry rub is not included in the prep time.
From "The Great American Slow Cooker Book" by Bruce Weingstein and Mark Scarborough. I have not made this yet, but it looks enticing. This cookbook scales recipes for all sizes of slow cooker, which is great, plus they focus on fresh ingredients, rather than processed. Servings are estimated.
These biscuits look awfully good and I cannot wait for my herb garden to come up after the winter. The recipe suggests ham, but these biscuits would be good with pretty much any kind of filling, I would think. By chef Sarah DiGregorio published in Parade Magazine.
From the blog "Surfing the world cuisine", whose author is a Lithuanian woman living in Turkey. She explains that this is not a traditional recipe, but in the Turkish tradition and using seasonal ingredients. Turkey exports most of its dried tomatoes, but they are available and why not use them? I have not made this, but it sounds quite appealing.
From Oakland CA chef Tanya Holland, published in Sunset magazine 4/14. She developed this to serve with smoked brisket, but I imagine it would be good with any number of things. Prep times are estimated.
