I have tried out several new recipes in the past week & while I won't share all of them with you now, I will be soon! The first one was Andrea's Coconut Milk Vanilla Pudding. I'm normally not one to make pudding because it requires standing & stirring over the stove: I'm too much of a multi-tasker to stand for that! (Translation: I walk away from the stove & it burns or curdles.) But for the sake of my son, who loves vanilla pudding, I gave it a go.
You bring it to a simmer, stirring & scraping constantly, over medium high heat, then reduce to medium and continue cooking & stirring til pudding "coats the back of a spoon" (I never can tell what that means, but since she also said "two minutes" I just did that).
I have also been trying out some new recipes for different greens this week: kale, spinach, even rainbow chard (which I had never tasted or bought before in my life).
I didn't buy that much- just once bunch. Photo credit to Alex (eflon)I ordered the greens from our produce co-op and went right over to allrecipes.com to see what I could find. I tried two different highly rated recipes with the chard and have to tell you that both of those were rejects- no more chard! But I found a way of cooking kale (or spinach) that my daughter loves & now she is actually asking me to cook kale everyday- seriously! Who would have thought? I will share more of our "green" adventures tomorrow.
For my final Tuesday Twister thought, I'd like to share a picture with you that I will entitle "I thought it wouldn't happen to me"
Here's hoping you enjoy your kitchen adventures this week!
P.S. You'll notice over on the right hand side of my blog is a white box that says "Feeling Overwhelmed?" and it links to the ecourse at GNOWFGLINS. This is different than the Online Cooking Class from the Nourished Kitchen, whose banner is running at the top of my blog.
Wardeh (of GNOWFGLINS) has felt compelled to offer her ecourse on a donation only basis. This is a step of faith that I highly respect, and I hope that everyone who takes her course realizes the hours and hours of her time that she has put into the curriculum. Blessings Wardeh!
