tortilla flipping

October 25, 2011 § Leave a comment

This video will show you how to flip a tortilla. By the way, don’t cook tortilla in the oven.

ETA: One reader asked, “Why doesn’t she just flick her wrist to flip the tortilla, like you would with a pancake?”

Tortilla is much thicker and heavier than the average pancake. It often contains large chunks of potato and onion, plus the egg is rather liquidy, so it’s not as cohesive as a pancake. But if you think you can flip a tortilla pancake-style, I’d like to see it. Post a link to video in your comment.

eggplant and red pepper dips

October 24, 2011 § Leave a comment

The other day I made two really good tips. I mean dips. For the eggplant dip, I roasted the eggplant whole with fork holes in the oven, removed the skin and  up with sauteed onion, green pepper, garlic, salt, cumin, and coriander. For the roasted red pepper dip, I roasted red pepper halves, removed the skin, and blended it with salt and a bit of natural Greek yogurt. I might be forgetting some ingredients…either way, it’s a good base to start with and add stuff to as you wish!

setas, leeks, and red cabbage

October 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

The other day my housemate (pictured above) made setas, leeks, and red cabbage for dinner. Setas is basically the word for wild mushrooms, it’s not a specific type. Anyway, so delicious! The red cabbage was sauteed with pimenton, garlic, and salt. The setas were sauteed with herbs (I think dried basil or oregano) and salt. And the leeks with just salt. Simple and full of flavor! Also I love the color of red cabbage, it’s so beautiful!

apple autumn

October 9, 2011 § Leave a comment

Johnny Appleseed was a pioneer nurseryman in the midwest in the early 1800’s. Some stories have him starting his wanders here in Pittsburgh, where we do indeed have a lot of crab apples and apple orchards. It’s apple season! And I made little apple tarts with honey crisps I picked myself.

Where Am I?
