Obsession: Garlic Popcorn!

My new food obsession is garlic popcorn.  I use a Presto 04830 PowerPop Microwave Multi-Popper. A whole batch uses a teaspoon of oil or less (just enough to make the flavor stick).  I add salt and garlic powder in with the popcorn, cook for 2 minutes 30 seconds, and toss in some unsalted whole almonds.  Fiber + protein + crunchy = whole food deliciousness.

Pecan Pie with Kahlua and Chocolate Chips

I know this is a departure from my typical 1 Bowl Eating recipes, but it's Thanksgiving and this is soooo yummy!


from Bon Appétit | December 1996

Serves 8 to 10.

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup ( 1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
3/4 cup dark corn syrup
1/4 cup Kahlúa or other coffee liqueur
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large eggs
1 cup chopped pecans (toasted is best)
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 purchased frozen deep-dish 9-inch pie crust
2/3 cup chilled whipping cream
Pecan halves (optional)

Preheat oven to 375°F. 


Beat sugar and butter in medium bowl until smooth; beat in flour. Gradually beat in corn syrup, then Kahlúa and vanilla. Mix in eggs, then chopped pecans. Sprinkle chocolate chips over bottom of crust. Pour filling into crust.

Bake pie until filling is puffed around edges and just set in center, covering edge of crust if browning too quickly, about 45 minutes. Transfer pie to rack and cool completely. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)


Beat cream in medium bowl until peaks form. Drop whipped cream in small dollops around edge of pie. Place pecan half atop each dollop, if desired.

Awesometasticness (my tribute to the ever-growing vocabulary of Elizabeth Potts Weinstein)

Last night I roasted a selection of veggies from my recent Boston Organics deliveries. By the way, I am a total fan of theirs.

So here's my latest success formula:

Awesometasticness =

   Beets
+ Leeks
+ New potatoes
+ Mushrooms
+ Parsnips
+ Carrots
+ Garlic cloves
+ Shallots
+ Rosemary
+ Salt
+ Olive Oil
+ Grated Parmesan

Chop vegetables, toss together with oil, herbs and cheese, and roast at 425 degrees.

Put in bowl with 1.5 ounces goat cheese + .5 ounce toasted pine nuts.

Delish.

Big shouts out to my sister-in-law Lauren for suggesting I roast my plethora of potatoes, and to my dear friend Barbara for looking up how to prep leeks for roasting.

Enjoy!

Apparently I'm Not the Only American Who Spends Little Time Cooking

I read this interesting article this morning in the New York Times. Apparently I'm not the only American who spends very little time cooking these days. I guess I'm less into food gadgets than this crowd though. Ever tried making toast and egg at the same time, with one appliance? Soon you can!

Tonight's recipe, no cool gadgets required:

6 oz vegetarian black beans
4 oz grilled chicken strips (I buy these pre-cooked at Trader Joe's or Costco)
6 T. guacamole
12 oz chopped lettuce, tomatoes, assorted grilled veggies and salsa

Delicioso!

Happy Discovery!

A few weeks ago I found myself thinking.... "I wish there was a way that a fresh supply of high quality vegetables would just show up at my doorstep every week." I've tried and liked using grocery delivery services (Peapod, the now-defunct ShopLink, and the sadly-named Roche Brothers), but I don't need $100 worth of groceries every week - just the produce. Last night, thanks to my friend Michelle F., I learned about Boston Organics. I read about it and registered in less than 10 minutes. Starting next Wednesday, $24 worth of fresh organic produce will turn up on my doorstep weekly. I'm psyched! Have you ever used such a service, in Boston or anywhere else?

Here's what I prepared in 5 minutes for lunch today:
- 6 oz basmati rice (cooked last night while I was cleaning up from dinner)
- 6 oz. peas
- 6 oz. grape tomatoes
- 1 T. Smart Balance Light
- 3 oz. tuna (drained)
- 1 oz. grated Parmesan

It tasted like a healthier version of tunafish casserole, one of my favorite meals as a kid.
