Delectable Musings: Mozzarella: Urban Farm Handbook Challenge, March Oh man am I glad I did! Mozzarella is pretty straight forward as long as you read the recipe through in advance and have all your ingredients and tools ready to go before you start. Ricki Carroll is the Cheese Queen and her Home Cheesemaking: Recipes for 75 Homemade Cheeses is the cookbook source that I used. I really like her website version of 30 Minute Mozzarella with all the great photos and very clear step by step instructions as well. I was worried about doing this so I will confess I consulted both sources, more than once.

The Odd Food Dude In pretty much any habitat you can find sharks, there are people eating them. Obviously coastal regions tend to have a much higher presence of shark activity, which is why you see plenty of them in Japan, Australia, China, and Scandinavian countries. One particularly noteworthy dish from Iceland is hákarl, which is shark that has been pressed and fermented under sand, gravel, and stone for up to three months, then hung to cure for an additional five more. Hákarl has really made the rounds with celebrity chefs: Anthony Bourdain described it as "the single worst, most disgusting and terrible tasting thing" he had ever eaten; upon trying it, Gordon Ramsey spewed out a Technicolor yawn; and for a guy whom I've seen relish raw testicles with hedonistic abandon and orgasmic moans, Andrew Zimmern sure had trouble getting past the ammonia smell.

The following recipe is for a great pie with Greek Origins called Spanakopita. It is made of layered sheets of filo pastry (with plenty of melted butter or ghee) with a filling in the centre made of spinach and feta cheese. You can change the filling as you like, for example using mince meat, or other vegetables. The sheets of filo pastry are drenched with a mixture of eggs and milk which soak up into the pastry giving it a soft dough texture which is very easy to bite through and melts in the mouth. This pie is dangerous in that you can eat quite a number of pieces without realising how much you just ate. Spanikopita Recipe - How to make spinach and feta cheese spanikopita | MongolianKitchen.com

December New Taste Market Just the thought of holiday shopping makes me feel exhausted. I am a pretty resilient and fiesty woman, but honestly, I sort of crumble in the face of pushy crowds, forced shopping deadlines and endless mental sales calculations to figure out how much money I am spending. This year, my family has opted for a Christmas Eve dinner with a singular $20 gift exchange (distributed according to my mom’s favorite gift exchange game). My gift, not surprisingly, will be food-related (any suggestions?). In an effort to avoid chaotic holiday shopping, I'm thinking I might either make gifts or pick up some locally-made gifts to celebrate the talents of others who make some fine products. I started collecting some local goodies and DIY projects to give away as gifts.
Recently I shared with you my vanilla syrup recipe...the way I have always made it. Looking to lower the cost of making a few dozen bottles, I altered the recipe from using a vanilla bean for each batch to using pure vanilla extract instead and OMGoodness was it good! Now if only I can figure out how to make these into lollipops...I would be a happy, happy gal!
