Matcha-White Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a very classic chocolate chip cookie recipe, with a few minor changes. The addition of matcha green tea is the most obvious one, and matcha goes particularly well with white chocolate. As usual I have reduced the amount of sugar normally called for, with the result that they are slightly cakier and also slightly less obnoxiously over-sweet than …

Mincemeat Cake

It seems I only just mixed up and canned my mincemeat, and here I am using some already. One of the reasons I decided to make mincemeat was that I had been seeing so many ideas for things to make with it other than pies or tarts, which I usually find to be a bit too intense. This cake, however, …

Lo-Bak Pancakes

I love dim sum! It’s such a pity the nearest purveyor is mighty close to 2 hours away by car. Whenever we go, we order 2 dishes of lo-bak go; that is to say radish patties. One of them is just for me, and the other is for the rest of the table. Yes! It’s my favourite! It’s also kind …

Basque Chicken Terrine

Yes, it’s basically a chicken meatloaf!  It did not work out quite as I hoped, but the problem was mainly one of texture; I don’t believe I chopped my chicken enough. So, be sure to chop the chicken fairly finely. It was certainly very flavourful and we enjoyed it very much. We have arrived at a pivot in the seasons. …

Turkish Eggplant & Potato Kofte

These were yummy! And a rather different take on the theme of Turkish patties. They make a good appetizer or vegetarian main course. Serve them with rice and salad. If you had leftovers, I think they would make a different and interesting sandwich filling. Not that we had leftovers.  In addition to being vegetarian, these are gluten-free. 4 servings1 hour …

Broccoli Cheddar Casserole

It is beginning to become clear to me that we have been eating too much cheese lately. Still, I regret nothing! Well, a little bit. But it’s hard to regret something as tasty and satisfying as this. It was also quick and easy to make, and pretty much a full meal in itself. We had it with just one of …

Peach Custard Pie with Coconut Crumble Topping

It’s getting pretty late in peach season, but on the other hand it is getting late enough that the idea of turning on the oven and baking a pie is feasible. And this is so good it would be worth turning on the oven for even in the heat of summer.  There are a lot of stages to this, but …

Fried Cauliflower with Mushroom & Onion Sauce

I am not quite sure this lived up to the vision I had of it, but it was eaten with considerable enthusiasm, so, okay? The cauliflower is a slightly more robust (and possible gluten-free) version of this Mexican Cauliflower, and I wanted a vegetarian sauce for it that wasn’t based on cream or tomatoes; always a challenge. We had just …

Monster Zucchini Lasagne

We’ve been pretty careful about checking the zucchini daily this summer, and so we haven’t suffered from too many monster zucchini. Last week, though, we must have taken our eyes off the prize, because 3 of them rolled into the kitchen. This seems to be the time of year when you are most likely to see very large zucchini at …

Cheesy Corn & Poblano Chile Pudding

And here they are! The first of the Poblano chiles, along with corn, cheese, and eggs. The cheese, milk, and eggs make this a main dish; all it needs is a green salad or steamed green vegetable to keep it company and dinner is ready. Actually, a nice selection of sliced heirloom tomatoes sounds like a good plan too. You …
