cinnamon raisin omeletThis is one of those rare sightings. It was moving so fast that I almost used the high speed shutter on the photo. Its a /sugar cinnamon omelet with raisins. The Kashkaval cheese just happened to be in the neighborhood.


throwrug pancakeThis is the family throw rug just before I ate it. Tried to make a stack of very thin pancakes. Failed and I will tell you why in a minute. First, I was sitting there looking at it and said to myself, the person who does not benefit from the experience of those who have gone before, is a fool. And then I said self defensively. Or trying to prove something. O.K., trying to prove that he is a fool. I do not use recipes – as far back as I can remember. Which means that I am actually winging it most of the time. The base of knowledge is what I have eaten in the past, logical deductions as to how it was prepared and got to look like it did, my basic fear of poisons, folk knowledge of what to avoid and what works or does not work. Which is all fine until we get to the part where a lot of time and material can be wasted in re-discovering what everyone except you knows. On the other hand, and this is my main point, if no one tried things for themselves, there would be no advancement. But still there must be a base. How you come by that base is important and it just might be that not only is it prudent to learn from others but necessary when tackling such problems as providing water for a village in a developing country, working in the field of medicine, not to mention nuclear physics, and also in cooking.


burger saladDecided that I was not getting enough greens, or enough protein, or enough vegetables in my life. In short, I was not getting enough. You see the remedy. The burger prompted the dressing which is mayonnaise with ketchup, pickle in salt water (you need something crunchy in the dressing), sweet basil, crushed black pepper, garlic powder, vinegar, soy sauce. Not all of it got on the salad before the photo. Very good. Oh, the two vegetables and you only see the tomato? Don’t forget the pickle. The tomato is what? To settle the argument, I refer you to the U.S. Supreme Court decision of 1893 which settled the controversy and declared the tomato a vegetable (but only for purposes of placing an import tax on it at the time). From Wikipedia Everything you wanted and probably didn’t need to know about tomatoes. Fascinating read.


pan muffinsBanana-Cashew-Cinnamon Muffins in a frying pan. Suddenly had the desire to make something round and tall. Had no metal shapes and decided against using ceramics or glass in the frying pan. Finally took aluminum foil and made circles. Batter was very thick. Cooked on lowest flame with cover on. When cooked, took off the foil and with extra butter, rolled them until browned on all sides. Could only eat one. I take that back, I ate both. Thought I would show the finished process. The first picture is the two of them waiting to be covered in syrup. The second is after. And the after-after – there was nothing left for a picture. Moral of the story? Nothing is impossible. And I am not talking only about cooking here.

Photo to come

Thought I would show the form: Aluminum folded several layers thick about the height of the finished scones after rising during the cooking process. Just be sure the form is not higher than the frying pan cover. Used a cup to get the round shape. Anchored it shut by twice folding a part of the top on the seam. Fill form only a third of the way up. That way it will not rise over the top and will be more sure of being cooked on the inside.


ginger raisin sauce and blue cheese riceThat was the best I have eaten so far. I just hope the picture comes out because now it is too late. The sauce on the burger squash is a raisin-ginger-sugar-maple syrup sauce. Very little ginger – it bites, and very little maple. Make enough to form a pool under the burger. The rice is a peak. It’s blue cheese rice with peppers, mushrooms, garlic, and butter. The type of meal that even when you are full, you want to eat it again. Also, serve this with a table spoon. Have you ever tried to scoop out squash with a fork. Very frustrating, and frustration does not go well with this meal. Re mushrooms, see warning beginning of site.

    I intended to put you a tiny word to help give thanks as before for your personal stunning tricks you’ve shared here. It’s certainly incredibly generous of people like you to allow freely exactly what many of us could have advertised for an e-book to earn some profit for themselves, most notably given that you could possibly have tried it in case you desired. These pointers as well acted like the good way to be aware that many people have the same dream just as my very own to learn more and more with regard to this problem. I believe there are lots of more fun moments up front for people who look over your site.
