Tres Leches

Friday, December 13, 2019, 09:37 PM

Meredith made Tres Leches for a Mexican Themed party. She used the recipe from Pati Jinich (LOCAL). Overall, we liked it a lot. Someone else also brought a tres leches cake. Theirs, unlike ours, was more spiced which was better at first but then became too much. If we make this again from this recipe, we may add some more spices including nutmeg

Stuffed Mushroom Casserole with Quorn

Thursday, December 12, 2019, 09:17 PM

I made Stuffed Mushroom Casserole using Quorn instead of real meat. I prepped it last night. Just the onions and mushrooms. I used pre-sliced mushrooms which made it so much easier but also meant I had to cook it sooner.

I basically 1.5x everything!

To make it, I added the cheeses (using Romano instead of Parmesean left from the meatloaf) and then made the breadcumbs sans crushed red pepper (for Caroline).

It needed lots of extra time. Initially baked for about 20 min but it wasn't enough (though a good temperature for Caroline). I put it back in at 400°F for about 30 minutes, then covered it and left at 325°F for another 30 or so!

Also, some of the fried onions were regular ones and others were garlic-pepper flavored.

Overflowing the pan! It made a lot Before going in the oven

Crab Dip

Tuesday, December 10, 2019, 06:46 PM

Meredith had been craving crab dip for a while so she finally broke down, bought a thing of crab ($$$) and made some. She used the recipe from Sprinkle Bakes (LOCAL) and followed it pretty closely. It was very good and seemed to have hit the spot!

Cranberry Crumb Bars

Tuesday, December 10, 2019, 06:21 PM

Meredith made Cranberry Crumb Bars again. She cooked them a bit longer than last time giving them a very rich flavor!

Meredith made the Ottolenghi Simple Meatloaf with her usual replacement of beef for lamb. This time we used 88% lean beef since we got it at Costco. Meredith made one regular and a few (three?) small ones to freeze.

It was very good as usual!

Hot Dish

Saturday, December 07, 2019, 07:09 AM

Meredith made Minnesota Style Hot Dish from Molly Yeh's Recipe (LOCAL). She said she mostly followed the recipe but should have stopped cooking the sauce sooner since it got even thicker upon cooling.

It tasted great too! We probably could have cooked it a bit longer to get even more crisp on the tater tots.

Before the oven Being served. You can see the fillings

Roasted Gnocchi

Wednesday, December 04, 2019, 09:00 PM

Roasted Gnocchi with fennel. We roasted it for 20 min before adding the gnocchi and sausage and then just 10 more. Should have either put the gnocchi on sooner and/or let it roast even longer. The gnocchi was soft but we missed the slight crunch.

We made pizza for dinner. I had forgotten to buy the crust at Trader Joes so this was some kind of "fresh" crust from the grocery store. It came rolled up so it was super easy to just unroll. However, I strongly suspect it was not a yeast-based crust as it didn't rise at all while waiting. It was also not as flavorful as we usually have. But it was a nice fallback. And super easy not having to roll or shape it.

We topped it with salami, cheese, and ricotta. We also used actual pizza sauce (Trader Joes' brand).
