  • 10-minute salt cod (for two)
    We have always wanted to try bacalao - the dried and salted cod fish that is then rehydrated when cooked in stew. Since this recipe salts the cod for just 10 minutes, we decided to give it a shot. We plan to make this again the next time we find cod and little neck clams. Recipe adapted from foodandwine.com. Proportions adjusted from 4 servings to 2 servings. codkosher saltcornunsalted butterlemon juicewhite pepperolive oilflourlittle neck clamsgarliccilantrothymewhite winepaprikaparsleycrusty bread
  • aglio e olio
    When a minor flood kicked us out of our home for about a week, this dish was part the first meal we made from start to finish after we moved back in. Our menu included iceberg wedge salad with blue cheese, bacon, tomato, marinated red onion, green onion, and italian parsley and aglio e olio: pasta with a garlic-parmesan base which we enhanced with bacon and fried Italian parsley. We of course served it with pinot grigio. Mortimer, we’re back! :) pasta olive oilpancettagarlicanchoviesred pepper flakepasta waterparmesan cheese italian parsley

  • baby back ribs
    In May 2005, when Carm's younger brother, Butchok, graduated from San Francisco State University, Collin and Carm threw a party in Butch’s honor at their home. Collin and Carm made Mrs. Oguro's recipe for ribs. Everyone loved the ribs. onions and garlicsalt and pepperbaby back ribsbarbecue sauce
  • baby chili
    In this scaled down version of the Cook's Illustrated chili recipe, the portion is smaller and the seasoning is lighter. Spicy elements have been eliminated. This recipe is perfect for babies who have already been introduced to solids (about 8 months old). The meat is so tender they can easily chew it with their gums. Plus the meat consumption helps with their iron intake. :) ground beefwatersaltpepperbaking sodaground cumingarlic powderground corianderdried oreganodried thymewhole peeled tomatoesvegetable oiloniongarlicwatersugarcider vinegarcilantro

  • BBQ Buckwheat & Chickpea Veggie Burger
    This veggie burger is so delicious and full of good-for-you ingredients. You'll want to set aside some time to enjoy preparations. It's not quick to put together, but they freeze well so you may even want to make a double batch for a quick meal later. After you try these you won't want to go back to the supermarket frozen variety. buckwheat groatsyellow onioncarrotred bell peppercelerygarlicsalt & pepperchili powdergarbanzo beansswiss chard leavessweet potatoBBQ saucechia “egg”
