Roasted Cauliflower and Leek Soup

This is roasted cauliflower and leek soup that I made last winter. I never gotten around to posting about it. We are supposed to get some serious rain and snow this coming Sunday and Monday. Okay, I don't know how serious it is really going to be but the local news is forecasting 90% chance of rain on Sunday and 50% chance of snow on Monday and that sounds really serious to me. At least it kinda ruined our weekend plan of being outside and enjoying Spring.

Happy New Year and Walnut Biscotti


Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you all had a good holiday and started off your New Year with a bang.

As for me, I started it lazily. Take this Walnut Biscotti for one. I photographed this... oh, 3 moths ago.Had all the photographs ready to go on a draft post and it's been sitting there waiting for me to write something.

This biscotti recipe is from Mark Bittman's The Food Matters Cookbook. You can find the recipe here. I was a bit skeptical whether it will turn out because it contains no eggs or oil. But it was really good. It is more crunchy and dry than other biscotti that uses eggs/butter/oil but we like the crunchiness. Hubby especially loves it and he likes to dunk his piece in coffee.

Homemade Marshmallow


Short post today. I just wanted to share some pictures on the marshmallow that I made a couple of weekends ago.

I am not a big marshmallow fan. But I am curious about making it. There's a recipe for it in one of my cookbooks: Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It. I've made several recipes from this book and they turned out successful so I thought I tried.
