DLD 11.22.10—The AN Recipe Repository, or, You're Making Me Hungry!


It's the week of Thanksgiving, and most probably everyone is planning on overeating/indulging/pigging out on Thursday, so I thought we'd do a little food prep and share our recipes, which we've been meaning to do for a long time. Also, dump links (baseball and nonbaseball, who really cares anymore) and waste time, as per usual.

There's some food lore that goes along with AN tailgates. I hope to see some of our most famous recipes here; I'm sure people will be clamoring for them.

Join me below for some food porn.

I'm not really a dessert person (as in making them...) but these are big hits I've made before:

Pumpkin Flan (from Gourmet Magazine)...don't do the pumpkin seeds...strain through sieve twice if you want it to be really creamy and smooth...may need to add an extra egg yolk.

Croissant Bread Pudding with Chocolate (from Real Simple magazine)...add some whiskey or bourbon for a kick. Works a bit better if you do a layer of croissant pieces, then lay chocolate on top, then another layer of croissant, and nestle the last chocolate bits in the top layer. Otherwise all the chocolate tends to fall to the bottom. Let the whole mixture soak together for 20-30 minutes.

This year's new dessert is... Red Wine Poached Pears with Marscarpone (hope it turns out good)

Stolen from skigurl - stand by filling salad Warm Lemon-Cumin Chicken and Bread Salad (I use homemade croutons instead of pita bread...grab a baguette - day old is better - chop it up into bite sized squares, lay them out on a cookie sheet and spray them with some olive oil so they're lightly coated, bake/broil to desired toastiness).

 

Things I can't perfect and would love tips/recipes for -

The perfect poached egg?

The perfect shortbread cookie?

The perfect pie crust?

The perfect tzatziki sauce?

 

I'll add more in the dump, including Mom's chutney recipe.
