A good, productive cooking month for me. Made three cakes for my birthday
10/27 Warm Apple-Cornmeal Upside-Down Cake (BA 2/03) Very good texture. Not a thick caramel & could use more. Reheated beautifully. Also made half a recipe in an 8inch cast iron the next day.
10/20 Chocolate-and-Cream Layer Cake (CL12/18) Really tasty. Nice cake. Need a little more salt everywhere? Good combo and easy.
10/6 Golden Sheet Cake (SK) Very good. Slight tang. Light and moist and rose nicely.
10/6 Baked Three-Cheese Onion Dip with Chives and Peperoncini (BA 12/16) Reduce oil and, since I used our oil-packed peppers, sponge off oil there, too. Very tasty.
10/27 Glazed Red Pepper-Fennel Almonds (BA 2/03) Interesting—didn’t think I would like, but there was something about them. Got sticky though.
10/27 Grissini with Prosciutto (BA 2/03) Needed something—salt? Roll more thickly in cheese? Didn’t really stay stuck together. What do you do with the other end of the breadstick? People left it on their plates!
10/27 Sourdough Bread with Marinated Manchego Cheese and Roasted Peppers (BA 2/03) Used ground cumin and it was very cuminy/oniony.
10/27 Chicken and Andouille Sausage Ragu (BA 2/03) Good—needs all parts (pasta & parsley butter). Not really a sauce, more of a stew served over pasta.
10/27 Campanelle Pasta with Parsley Butter (BA 2/03) With ragu, yummy!
10/27 Broccoli Rabe with Parsley Butter (BA 2/03) Ragu and pasta tamed bitterness in such a nice way. Great together.
10/22 Spicy Pork Noodles with Scallions & Bok Choy (EW 11/19) Used sambal olek and garlic. Tasty, simple.
10/17 Cinnamon-Spiced Caramel Cake (BA 12/01) Needed to be sweeter, more cinnamon, caramel too dark. Wonderful frosting.
10/16 Creamy Leek-Potato Soup and Garlic Croutons (CI 3/10) First soup gone at supper—croutons not garlicy enough. Better with bacon?
10/16 Tortilla Soup (CLBB Rebecca/Stop and Smell the Rosemary) Blended some. Added black beans. Needs lime at end.
10/15 Glazed Agrodolce Ribs (Food&Wine 8/15) Delicious and easy. Might try oven method with my sauce and salt&pepper.
10/1 One-Dish Baked Chicken with Tomatoes and Olives (BA 6/17) Easy, tasty. Try more thyme? Or basil? More salt. Liked toast and garlic spread on toast. Try a stronger tasting olive? [Originally in Make Again, but not good as leftovers—just tasted like chicken and tomatoes???]
