Hasselback Delicata

Sunday, October 28, 2018, 09:13 PM

Meredith tried hasselback delicata from Lifehacker (LOCAL). I think she followed the recipe pretty closely but may have more-than-par cooked them and had trouble not slicing all the way through. I liked the sauce though maybe it was a tad sweet.

Simple Turkey Tacos

Thursday, October 25, 2018, 01:34 PM

We had turkey originally for something else but decided to go for easier. I sautéed an onion and then did the taco seasoning with tomatoes. We served it with some defrosted (and freezer burned...yuk!) flat bread.

Taco Stew

Tuesday, October 23, 2018, 08:24 PM

I made standard taco stew except I went heavy on the zucchini (and updated the recipe to note that you can). I do not think I did anything special but it did come out really good!

Pumpkin Biscotti

Saturday, October 20, 2018, 04:44 PM


My Dad's biscotti recipe is very flexible but I wasn't sure about adding pumpkin puree and not changing anything (especially the oil/fat content). So I picked ten recipes from Google. Basically, any recipe that was not some special diet (e.g. low carb), and actually had pumpkin. Actually, I pikced roughly the top nine and then found The Kitchn's


See the excel sheet for more

A few clear notes:

So, looking at my dad's recipe, it is already very high fat and low sugar. So, with all of that, I think the conclusion is that looking at other recipes did not help at all! So, I will go with 1/3 cup oil (instead of 1/2, 33% reduction). And I will use 2/3 cup pumpkin.

As for spice levels, I think I will use 2 tsp pumpkin spice. The Kitchn uses 1 tsp cinnomen, 1/2 nutmeg, 1/4 clove and ginger. And King Arthur uses 1-1/4

(Also, the cups to weight conversion is way off from King Authur's. But I care most about grams.)


I followed my plans except maybe a bit heavy on the nuts. I think the end result was tasty but still lacked the pumpkin flavor. I do not think adding more actual pumpkin is the answer but maybe more pumpkin spice. Or more of something to give it that flavor.

I am also not too happy with the big air pockets. My dad thinks it may be from the pumpking changing the texture but I do not know

Singapore Noodles

Thursday, October 18, 2018, 08:22 PM

Singapore Noodles using tofu and more spices like last time. I tried to use more salt but it still tasted like it needed more. It also wasn't as good this time but I am not sure what, if anything, I did differently or changed.

Tacos and Brussel Sprouts

Monday, October 15, 2018, 07:54 PM

I made (semi) boring tacos. For the meat, I first sauteed half a large onion plus two zucchinis. I then added seperatly-browned lean ground beef and did the taco-seasoning + water mixture.

I made mustard brussel sprout hash with the other half an onion. I sauteed it and deglazed as needed with white wine. I then added brussel sprouts and let that go for a while before adding mustard.

Soy Chorizo and Cauliflower

Friday, October 12, 2018, 08:58 PM

Our semi-standard Soy Chorizo and Cauliflower except we didn't have capers. I did do (most) of half a red onion.

Served with some green chile bread from Trader Joes

Pretty easy and good.
