When my Sis & I were kids back in Iowa and way back about 40 to 45 years ago, Hamburgers au Poivre was a huge favorite at our house. My Mom had this recipe on rotation for a while, and there’s good reason!
If this “recipe” for Cheesy Sauerkraut Toast is a surprise to you, I gotta tell ya it was a surprise to me, too! I came across the concept quite by accident on the New York Times website and immediately latched onto it as a way to use up a little sauerkraut leftover from making my Reuben Sandwiches.
I have been having a love affair this year with…Julia Childs Berry Clafoutis. Maybe someday I’ll complete that sentence with news in the romance department but in the meantime, I’m not complaining a bit about settling with this simple, custardy fruit dessert. Clafoutis is kind of a cross between a cake and a pudding and it is everything, This year it’s a simple pleasure that’s been like a little salvation.
Happy Independence Day! I hope you had a wonderful celebration! I really had full intention of making a Red White & Blue 4th of July dessert (I usually make these Mixed Berry Shortcakes every year) but in typical ADD fashion, I appropriated the strawberries for something else! These No Bake Lemon Custard “Possets”. I’m so glad I did because these truly are one of the best things I’ve ever tasted!
Just the other day I got an email from the New York Times “What to cook this week.” Do you get them? They charge a subscription for their site but you can view the recipes in the email at no cost, at least for a while. They’ve become kind of a highlight for me, just a minute or two of reading editor Sam Sifton talk about food. One of the food items he mentioned recently was German Chocolate Cookies.
