Mango Pie

Wednesday, March 13, 2019, 11:43 PM

I made a mango pie for 𝜋-day using this NYTimes recipe (LOCAL) which is also featured in this article.

I really followed the recipe pretty closely with the following notes:

While it took a lot of appliances (food processor, mixer, and blender) and a lot of bowls (since you had to shuffle around), it all came together pretty smoothly. And since it wasn't baked, I didn't have to worry about the larger pan.

I thought the flavor was okay. It really just tasted like mango. Similarly, the texture was very gelatenous (surprise!). I think I would have preffered it be more of a custard with that texture and richness. But it was well received (and got second place in the contest)

Pork Loin

I made Grilled Pork Loin Filet over Corn Salsa and Topped with Chimichurri using the same basic notes as the first time (inluding light on the oil and sous-vide pork).

I think the salsa was very good (made with extra corn and more onion) but the chimicurri was less flavorful (I do not think it was the reduction in oil, but could be) and, even though we sous-vide cooked it, the pork (not the smoked they call for) was surprisingly tough.

Kung Pao

Tuesday, March 12, 2019, 07:52 PM

This was another spice packet meal like Korean Tacos. I follwed their directions pretty closely. My most notable changes were to use more chicken and chicken breast.

I think it was overall okay but not amazing. It could have used more flavor though I also forgot to add the Szechuan pepper until the end (I don't think that was the problem though).

Rice was leftover from Butter Chicken

I liked smaching the cucumber. I think I would do that kind of preperation again

Huevos with Salsa and some deli turkey meat (Makes for a quick thrown together meal). Pretty good as usual!

Tofu Satay

Friday, March 08, 2019, 08:31 PM

I made Tofu Satay using the regular satay recipe. I did it with orange juice and I cooked it with a combination of the broiler and the oven (on a cooling rack inside a tray).

It worked pretty well in the oven but not as good as the grill (though much less work!).

I made the relish with onions since we didn't have scallions. And skipped the cilantro

We had frozen Satay Sauce I guess from last time

Turkey Taco Skillets

Cream Biscuits

Meredith made Cream Biscuits again from The Food Lab. She followed the recipe but used 2 tsp salt (as opposed to 3/4 in the recipe). I think the extra salt really helped!

They were very good.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Tuesday, March 05, 2019, 08:43 PM

I made Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps but with ground turkey. I browned the meat with some unrefined peanut oil for flavor and added a bit of soy sauce. I eventually had to drain the liquid. I used extra sriracha in the dressing but that was about it for changes.
