Hot Spinach Dip

Hot Spinach Dip

Pan Fried Cajun Chickpeas You seriously must try these. Over the weekend I was introduced to these little gems. I was at a birthday party where a mom friend mentioned her addiction to “fried chickpeas”…hmmm…sounded good to me. When she told me how she made them I was instantly intrigued. Why haven’t I thought to do this myself? It’s so simple people…and these babies make the best snack, appetizer or even better, topping for a salad (which I experienced for lunch today – holy yum!). To prepare the chickpeas you lightly dust them in seasoned flour then saute them in a little bit of olive oil in a hot pan till they get nice and crispy. Thank you so much for sharing Juliet! Pan Fried Cajun Chickpeas A fun way to serve up chickpeas as a snack or salad topping! Ingredients 1 can chickpeas (I like to use Bush's Garbanzo Beans) 2-3 tsp flour 2-3 tsp Cajun seasoning 2-3 TB olive oil sea salt, to taste Instructions Rinse and dry chickpease on paper towel.

cobbler baked in jars I made these for the Seattle Bake Sale for Share Our Strength organized by Frantic Foodie (thanks Keren!). I had so much fun making pies in jars that I figured this was the perfect opportunity to bake something else in jars. This time I used half-pint wide mouth jars, a nice size for a bake sale. (Half pint jars washed and drying.) I used the blueberry cobbler recipe from Baking Illustrated. (Look! These are great for bake sales because the packing is an eye catcher. The recipe, with notes on actually making it in jars, is below. Seriously, the cornmeal added to the biscuit batter makes all the difference here. I call this mise en jars, I used the washed jars from the overflowing and sticky (but sooo worth it) test batch. For each batch I used a 10-ounce package of frozen wild blueberries and, for the sake of economy, filled out the rest with locally grown (and gorgeous) frozen blueberries that are sold in 48-ounce bags. The scent of these baked goods right here is amazing. 1. 2. 3. 4.

Add water, egg, oil, and salt to well and carefully beat together with a fork without incorporating flour. Continue stirring with a wooden spoon, gradually incorporating flour, until a soft dough forms. Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface and knead, dusting with flour as needed to keep dough from sticking, until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes (dough will be very soft). Invert a bowl over dough and let stand at room temperature 1 hour. Make filling while dough stands: Peel potatoes and cut into 1-inch pieces. When mashed potatoes are cool enough to handle, spoon out a rounded teaspoon and lightly roll into a ball between palms of your hands.

Bring a 6- to 8-quart pot of salted water to a boil.
