How to enjoy an abundant harvest of cucumbers if you don’t want pickles I cannot believe that I didn’t blog about spicy frozen cucumbers last fall! Maybe we’d finished putting them up before I started talking to myself. Spicy frozen cucumbers are an excellent fresh salad substitute, especially this time of year. Believe it or
Here’s the recipe for Hot Chicken Salad III (and yes, that means there are at least two other hot chicken salad recipes in the Big Food Manual) that was the basis of a nice Sunday supper and will be today’s lunch. HOT CHICKEN SALAD III Serves 6-8 2 C cooked chicken, cubed ½ C slivered
Adapted! We had some leftover sub sandwiches so Mr. Big Food put them to good use. Great Sunday Supper! Recipe coming shortly.
Or something like that. It’s supposed to be “To your health” in Hungarian. But you know, I don’t know you. Or better said, I know some of you better than others. So, assuming the subject line is approximately correct– in a sort of gender-neutral, familial-neutral sense– some of the characters will change, depending on how
It really was this yellow! Unfortunately, I could not find saffron threads at the “Hog” (a much larger version of our “Piglet” Piggly Wiggly) and so Mr. Big Food substituted turmeric. He made other adjustments as well. The sausage is homemade Linguica, a Portuguese sausage. He tells me that when he made it a while
One of the 500 Delicious Dishes from Leftovers is Bread Crumb Griddlecakes. We had some leftover bread crumbs from something or other this past week so we had Bread Crumb Griddlecakes for breakfast. Frankly, I had my doubts, but I was pleasantly surprised. They were very light– not at all like a standard pancake. I
Edited by Ruth Berolzheimer, Director, Culinary Arts Institute; Published in 1952 by Consolidated Book Publishers, Chicago Rare indeed is the day when a modern housewife could not find in her refrigerator all sorts of odds and ends in the way of food. Indeed. Mr. Big Food has begun working on putting some recipes from the
Delicious Very crispy. I’ll need to ask Mr. Big Food what was translated! ~~ “Marie Novak Matejka. Translated by Jannie Petter, Sophie Edmundson, and Helen Vrla.” MAREN’S SUPREME BONELESS CHICKEN BREASTS Chicken breasts, deboned Milk (to soak boned breasts) Salt, pepper, paprika, to taste Homemade bread crumbs Flour 1 egg, beaten into a little milk
another supper here at The Farm. CRISPY The beans with paprika look like a big glob here but they were very good. Paprika:Bean was excellent. (As is the custom, recipe tomorrow.) The breading on the boneless, skinless chicken breasts was so light it fell off as soon as it was touched. So tasty. ~~ I
A jambalaya we’d never had before. SHRIMP JAMBALAYA 3 large onions, chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced ½ C bell pepper, diced 1 C uncooked rice ½ tsp red pepper ¼ C parsley, chopped 3 Tbsp oil ½ C diced celery 2 C peeled shrimp 2 C stock (preferably homemade—see recipes in Basics section) 1 tsp
There’s a smudge on my camera’s lens. Sorry ’bout that. This is interesting, we thought. Jambalaya with no tomatoes? No ham? Neither Mr. Big Food nor I understood until we saw it. It’s beautiful. With no tomato distraction, the translucent onions and cream colored rice make a wonderful background for the shrimp. The green onions
While I was fretting over my act of stupidity (deleting photos from the blog) and then later paying attention to Tibow, Mr. Big Food was fixing a fine Sunday Supper–Oven Barbequed Beef for Sandwiches, and Spicy Green Bean Salad. Tonight Mr. Big Food is making jambalaya from a recipe he’s never made before. I’m excited.
This was the fifth entrant our Fall/Winter Soup Contest. Photo and analysis here. (Mr. Big Food was very impressed. I liked it very much but argue it’s not a Fall/Winter Soup at all.)

Tomato rice soup with pesto in a slow cooker, garnished with Parmesan, photographed the way Kat instructed me to photograph food This was an outstanding soup. I’ll post the recipe tomorrow. UPDATED: Here it is. I want to first characterize this soup. (I do this for me. I can’t possibly remember all of these
What remains of this evening’s supper Here at The Farm, we enjoy Big Food of all sorts. Last evening Mr. Big Food set some food on fire and we had Creative Cooking Steak Diane. This evening we had peasant food, wurst-kohl eintopf (translated by Mr. Big Food as “sausage-cabbage dish stew”). The manner in which
“Hurry!” Sprinkle 2 Tbsp. Palinka over meat; light match Of course, I did not holler exactly this to Daughter C. We are family. We call each other by our Christian names. She did come quickly. I tossed her my camera, and sprinkled some apricot Palinka over the pounded steak. Mr. Big Food lit a match
but I’m footballed-out! Artichoke squares and party piggies oriental spareribs provided nourishment as we watched the games yesterday.
while we were eating crazy good Diner chicken pot pie for supper– the last supper we’ll serve on Christmas dishes until Christmas season, 2012 (Good Lord willing & the creek don’t rise). It’s baked in a 9″x13″ pan with only a top crust of flour, butter, cheese & ice water. It was delicious. The recipe
Not chili, chili soup!* For me, it’s a tie. Mr. Big Food is still thinkin’ on it. I’ve got it tied with Slow Cooker Potato Cheese Soup with Wieners (here, and here). If you are new to this game, we’re having a Fall/Winter Soup Contest. This is the 4th entrant. There have been several disqualified
Good morning! I love family traditions. My mother, who is not especially superstitious but who has no problem passing along superstitious traditions, taught me that the way in which one ends an old year and rings in a new year will be way in which one will end the new year and ring in a
