Chocolate Chili Bites. On Saturday night, we had the pleasure of attending the fourth edition of the Paris Potluck, hosted by Alisa and her husband Jean-Yves.

Chocolate Chili Bites

This time around, Alisa had suggested that we follow a theme : no more random assortment of everyone’s current food obessions! And as she (and I and pretty much everyone else) had been suffering from terrible Mexican food cravings since moving to Paris, her theme of choice was Mexican, as announced happily in an email with multicolored letters. As always, I toyed with different ideas for a while, and waited until the very last minute to decide what I was going to make. I asked Alisa what everyone was bringing, and she told me that appetizers and main courses were well covered, so a dessert would round out the menu nicely. So. Those little bites are a delightful rollercoaster in taste.

Bread. Crusty Bread. Jan. 1, 2015: Just released.

Crusty Bread

Instructional video for the Crusty Bread recipe. Crusty Bread 3 cups unbleached all purpose flour 1 3/4 teaspoons Kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon Instant or Rapid-rise yeast 1 1/2 cups water In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt and yeast. I must begin by saying where the recipe originated, if in fact it originated anywhere...really. Remember before beginning to create, that this bread is highly forgiving. You do NOT have to have an enamel covered cast iron pot. You DO NOT need to oil the pot. In a large mixing bowl add 3 cups white unbleached flour. To the flour add 1 3/4 teaspoon salt (I use kosher I like it) and 1/2 teaspoon rapid rise or instant yeast. Whisk the flour, salt and yeast together.

Add 1 1/2 cups water. Mix in the water. That's it! Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it set for 12 - 18 hours on the counter top. After 12 hours the dough will look like this. Meet my blue Le Creuset. Now, please disregard that this dough has stuff in it. Naan Recipe. Naan. Owning a dairy goat means having a lot of dairy products on hand at all times.

Grill Recipe: Flatbread Stuffed with Curried Potatoes, Spinach, and Chickpeas

It's really more like an Indian-style calzone than the stuffed naan I've ordered in restaurants. But once those potatoes go all creamy in their spiced sauce and the flatbread bakes into a perfect toasty pocket on the grill, I'm pretty sure all those distinctions become moot. The pita bread is a good sturdy dough to use for this recipe. Roll the dough to maybe a fourth-inch thick or else the curry inside will start to poke through and you'll have a mess on the grill. Make sure the edges are firmly sealed and poke a few holes before baking them to allow steam to escape.

If you don't have a grill or just prefer something else, these can also be baked in the oven. Flatbread Stuffed with Curried Potatoes, Spinach, & Chickpeas Makes 8 stuffed flatbreads The curry is adapted from Orangette's Chana Masala For the Flatbread:2 cups warm water2 teaspoons yeast4 1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour2 teaspoons salt.


Apartment Therapy The Kitchn. Last night, our daughter's school held a lantern walk.

Apartment Therapy The Kitchn

To the uninitiated, that means dozens of two, three, and four-year-olds singing and walking with lit candles in an otherwise dark and chilly community garden in the East Village. Believe me; it's beautiful, and no one gets hurt. To take the edge off the rather extreme conditions, each family was asked to bring a dozen muffins. Muffins at 6 pm? Not exactly part of our preschooler's usual evening routine, so for my dozen, I reached for some savory ingredients.I choose a cornbread base, and amped it up with buttermilk and sharp Dubliner cheddar cheese.

Leftovers? Cheddar and Leek Muffins Makes 12 muffins Preheat the oven to 375° F. Sift all the dry ingredients together into a large mixing bowl. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, buttermilk, 5 tablespoons of the melted butter, and honey. Make a well in the dry ingredients and incorporate the wet ingredients. Spoon the mixture into the muffin cups, filling each about three quarters full.

Zucchini and Olive Breakfast Cake, French-Style

The bread keeps very well; my husband and I have been nibbling on this for breakfast for several days straight, and it still tastes fresh and moist. The extra eggs and olive oil in the bread also seem to make it a little more filling and substantial than your average morning quick bread.
