You is kind. You is smart. You is important. -Aibileen Clark
Kind of like a frittata/omelette thing, if you’ve never had one of these. First time I ever had one was in Barcelona in a bar late one night while I was drinking absinthe. Tastes yummy hot or cold. I usually eat mine with sriracha sauce for some kick and a little smoked paprika sprinked on the top for some smoky flavor.
French Onion Soup
Remember that beef stock from a while back? Well, this is a great way to use it! This is also a great way to get rid of crusty ends of baguettes that are too hard to save and tiny bits of cheese that are questionably old (and that you’d probably end up throwing out eventually anyway). In other words, this is the perfect winter soup!
Fish Curry Soup
I made this recipe up one day when I was trying to figure out what to do with some tilapia I bought because it was on sale. I had some frozen seafood/shrimp stock, so I thought I would experiment a bit.
I started with a similar base to the Jamaican curry goat I learned to cook back when I lived in Flatbush, Brooklyn (potatoes, onions, curry powder, cilantro) but then substituted fish instead of goat and added stock to make it more of a soup. Success! I have made this soup many times since then. Sometimes I add in other things: fresh corn chopped off the cob, chopped bell pepper, chopped jalapeno/chile, etc etc.
Cobbler is something that represents summertime desserts in the south to me. I grew up eating cobblers of various varieties, but peach was always my favorite.
Cobbler is something in between a cake and a pie. More fruit than a cake. The batter goes around the fruit unlike a pie. Some people make them more like biscuits floating over a filling, but this is the type of cobbler I grew up with. The juice from the fruit mixes in with the batter and makes a flavor that you can’t get any other way.
It’s summertime, and peaches (and other fruits) are plentiful (at least where I am). Cobblers are a great way to use fruit that is a little overripe/bruised. You could experiment with different fruits, too. Apple or pear would substitute easily into this recipe. Also, berry cobblers are common (and delicious!). I find that the whipped cream or ice cream adds a nice way to smooth out the sweetness of this dish. But if you don’t have any (or don’t like that), it’s great plain!
