Lamb Cashew Curry

You can follow this link for a few words on meat masala.


So, finally I have a lamb/mutton recipe out on the website! Many people, have this confusion over the difference between lamb and mutton. Well, both are basically the same animal i.e sheep but in different stages of life. A sheep older than one year is generally called mutton and the sheep less than a year old is called lamb. Pretty simple eh? Growing up, mutton used to be made occasionally, either in a curry or a biriyani. This is a great, rich curry to serve to your loved ones. I have used Indian spices and flavors with this recipe. Fresh lamb/mutton should be used as it helps in the overall taste of the curry. I have baked the lamb pieces before simmering it in the curry. This helps in ensuring that the lamb is tender and soft. The onions and cashew nuts help in providing the thickness of the gravy…

Time For Fall Flavors

I forgot that tonight begins Rosh Hashanah, followed by a second day on the 1st, the Feast of St. Francis on the 4th, Yom Kippur next week and Sukkot the week after.
I’m not formally Jewish, but I follow out the Jewish holidays (beside the Catholic ones) all year all of my life. For that matter, I am avoiding my rage and anger on the meatless burger at fast foods locations almost everywhere for the month of October, but I will return to it from time to time.

Let the Happy Holidays begin everyone. If spring time sees me returned finally without more mention of it and I doubt it — I will surely begin my lament of anguish on it again. (Thanks.)

Leftover slices of bread make delicious French toast.

Turn the mixer down to low…

Poached egg with girolles, Västerbotten cheese and toasted hazelnuts

Girolles are the same as chanterelle mushrooms (looked this all up) and Vasterbotten cheese is made from that region in Sweden, but has equivalency with cheddar. (I’m wondering if it has to be hard cheese, because otherwise, I would also like to suggest the harder variety of soft, yellow scamorza (Italian soft cheese that comes white or light yellow).



My first attempt at cooking a 63C egg didn’t work too well, as I tried to multitask and wasn’t paying attention the whole time. Big mistake. Huge. So instead I poached eggs. And served it with butter-fried girolles, Västerbotten cheese and toasted hazelnuts. It was delicious but I still dream of perfecting that 63C egg and serve it with girolles. I mean, is there anything better than a runny egg yolk with garlicky mushrooms?! I don’t think so.

Listening to my favourite food podcast (in Swedish) I learnt a new way to toast nuts, in the oven. So much better than in a dry frying pan. It will change your life. I promise. All you need to remember is 150C for 15 minutes.

Fried Egg Sandwich

This looks so delicious. Egg sandwiches ARE NOT all alike!

Brielle's Avalon

Generally a breakfast item, but yummy any time of day…or night.All ingredients are optional, including the egg and many more can be added.

IMG_20190908_134228 Toast 2 slices of bread.

IMG_20190908_134440 Spread with mayonnaise or 100 Island dressing, or ranch or butter and/or the condiment of your choice. Mustard is a traditional choice, but catsup, salsa, piccalilli, chutney, sweet and sour sauce or even BBQ sauce can make this an adventure.

IMG_20190908_134559 Lay strips of cooked bacon on the slathered-up bread. Ham or other lunch meat can be substituted if you like.

IMG_20190908_135316 Add cheese. I usually use American cheese, but this time I had provolone. Swiss is good, too, or you could try muenster or anything your little cheesy heart desires. You don’t have to put it under the broiler to melt, but I did so this picture came from after the egg was done. You’ll notice lettuce under the egg. It’s a nice…

Corsican Spice Bread with Candied Citrus

The more difficult articles to find like chestnut honey and chestnut powder may be found at Supermarket Italy (link on sidebar) or also Yummy Bazaar (link on sidebar). There are probably other places to find those products like and I would bet Walmart also has those items (because Walmart has everything and that is an excellent thing of course), but not being sure, I thought I would mention two places of surety to have.


This recipe brings some of the best ingredients of Corsica together: Wonderfully nutty chestnut flour, fragrant citrus and the island’s dense, dark-golden honey. Making this cake takes my imagination back on a hike through the island’s lush green forests, and I can almost smell the damp forest floor after a violent summer rain. –

Even if your imagination is not quite as (over-)active, or you simply have not yet travelled to Corsica, this not too sweet spice cake may be a wonderful choice for your tea break. And if you like it a bit sweeter, you may choose to drizzle a bit of that honey on top…


IMG_7872Ingredients (for a 20 x 9 x 9 cm cake mold):

  • 20 grams of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of corn flour
  • 120 grams of candied citrus peel, cut into small cubes
  • 30 ml of chestnut (alternatively citrus) liqueur
  • 150 grams of chestnut honey

Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries

I liked this.

My Meals are on Wheels

Today’s Menu: Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start the day. After Breakfast started a couple of loads of laundry. Did some light house cleaning. Then outside for some yard work. I had everything gone and settled in the easy chair and spent the day watching NFL Football! Anyway for Dinner tonight its a Smoked Turkey Sausage Dogs w/ Baked Fries.

I used the always delicious Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. I cut the Sausage Links into Bun length pieces. I absolutely love the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage and I had been wanting some for a while. It’s got such a fantastic flavor and always cooks up just right. To prepare them I used a large skillet, added about a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and preheated it on medium heat. Put the Sausage in the skillet…

Bourbon Maple Chicken ~ The Power of Cheese

You don’t know the power of cheese!!! That’s what’s written on this recipe page over a poster of Darth Vader. What an excellent motto for Wisconsin & Cheese head TV, the Packers station.

The Sixpence at Her Feet

In Sister Madly’s experience, cheeses don’t just pop across the marketplace like champagne corks; so it was something of a surprise when she found herself assaulted by a wedge of Camembert. To find the source of the offending cheese, she had to look no farther than the dreadlocked gent now contemplating the Brie, who gave no explanation other than the Camembert had ‘bad energy.’

Technically speaking, sir, everything has energy, if only potential- Sister Madly learned that much as a wee little thing in Science Class.

But Science doesn’t cover Cheese Energy as far as she knows, except with respect to other objects or situations.

Take gravitational cheese energy, for example: Sister Madly can stuff you full of Brie and throw you off the roof; for electrical, that outlet by the sushi bar appears to be rather volatile.* However, if it’s thermal cheese energy you seek, Sister Madly will…
