40. Warm Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Cake p.740

40. Warm Chocolate Raspberry Pudding Cake p.740

the recipe
I can’t say that I pulled this off with the grace or style of Julia Child, I hope that I honored her commitment to salvaging disasters with this dish. The concept here is basically an upside down cake. The bottom of the pan has a chocolate pudding layer, and then a cake batter [...]

39. Penne with Broccoli Rabe p.206

39. Penne with Broccoli Rabe p.206

I can’t find an Epicurious recipe for this one. If I had this might have been a 4.5 mushroom dish, but I can’t bear not to share this simple flavourful Tuesday night supper with the world. Here it is.
2 pounds broccoli rabe
1 pound penne
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 garlic cloves, sliced
1/2 teaspoon red [...]

38. Roasted Carrots and Parsnips with Herbs p.529

38. Roasted Carrots and Parsnips with Herbs p.529

the recipe
I nip, you nip, we all nip for parsnips!
I love them mashed, boiled, grilled, broiled, sauteed, and particularly roasted. They behave almost exactly like carrots, they look like carrots, they taste quite a bit like carrots, and yet… the carrot is a superstar of the vegetable world, and the poor parsnip is drinking alone [...]

37. Swiss Chard and Chickpeas p.542

37. Swiss Chard and Chickpeas p.542

the recipe
This quick stew was fine, nothing special, but fine. It’s centred around swiss chard and chickpeas, with a bit of tomato, onion, garlic, and lemon juice. It was a bit bland, and the flavours never really came together. The fibrous swiss chard and grainy chickpeas didn’t make for the most appealing texture either. On [...]

36. Basic Polenta p.264

36. Basic Polenta p.264

the recipe
The linked recipe differs from The Books version in the cooking directions. The linked version would have us standing there stirring the polenta for 40 minutes, which is enough to get me to give up on polenta forever. Fortunately The Book’s version is kinder, we’re only asked to stir 1 minute out of every [...]

35. Cranberry Caramel Bars p.691

35. Cranberry Caramel Bars p.691

the recipe
I really enjoyed these bars. I brought half of them to a party, and they disappeared instantly. I enjoyed more of them over the next week, and brought out even more from the freezer a couple months later. All that to say, the recipe make a lot of bars, and they keep and freeze [...]
