Spicy microwave popcorn PDF E-mail

When I was a little girl in the 70's my parents made popcorn every Sunday with Jiffy-Pop. When I was an adolescent in the 80's we made popcorn with our hot-air popper. When I was a teenager we made popcorn in the microwave in those little pre-fab bags. And now that I'm an adult I'm sending out a little shout-out to my parents with a popcorn technique I learned from Mark Bittman – just take a quarter cup of popcorn and microwave it in a plain paper bag. The joy of this technique is that it costs pennies a bag, and you can make it as plain or spicy as you want.

 

Remember the Orville Redenbacher “Mexican flavored” popcorn we used to buy? This is better.

 
Summer latkes are the fruit of zucchini wars PDF E-mail

(A version of this post originally appeared on Let My People Grow.)

Ah, summer. The sun, the heat, the glorious fresh vegetables, and the curse of the zucchini.

We live in a rural area and “The Zucchini Game” is a fierce contest in August. People with gardens are over run with zucchini and they will do anything; 1) not to have to make another zucchini bread; and 2) not to let the zucchini go to waste. So as the growing season kicks into its highest gear, my friends and family play “hot potato” with bags of zucchini. In late summer, breaking and entering doesn’t mean people break into your house to steal from you. People will sneak into your house, and “gift” you with 5 pounds of zucchini and it’s up to you to figure out what to do with them.

But this year I'm being sneaky too. Why wait until December for latkes? I'm making summer latkes with my abundance of zucchini and carrots. And then to fully exact my revenge, I'm inviting friends and family over for a cocktail party where I will serve them. Mwa, ha, ha! My delicious revenge will be out of a hot frying pan and sprinkled with kosher salt.

This is what we received in our Maplewood Organics CSA this week. In January I'm going to remember this week with jealousy.

Basil and thyme

We received some beautiful beet greens in our Maplewood Organics CSA, but there weren't enough to make a full side dish. So I decided to try something different. Instead of spinach with pasta why not have sauteed beet greens with orzo and a spicy basil sauce? It was a delicious combination of fresh greens and a decadent cheese sauce.

 

 
Green olive hummus and spicy naan PDF E-mail

This is our 100th recipe and to celebrate we made a rich hummus and a spicy naan to use for dipping. Traditionally hummus is a garlicky chick pea dip. But this is a fresh hummus without garlic, which allows the lemon, olives and fresh herbs to shine.

 

The naan is a little different here too. The tumeric gives the bread a lovely mild yellow color and the cayenne and cumin make it a little fiery – and addictive.
