    On my cooking front, I recently whipped up a large batch of lime curd made with the organic tahitian limes in my parents' front yard, and canned it to give as gifts. I also used the leftover egg whites to make coconut and macadamia macaroons dipped in dark chocolate. I'm not a huge fan of macaroons, but people seemed to like them.



    I've got a whole bunch of things bookmarked to try out next, once my CSA delivery comes in tomorrow, including:
    Turnip Casserole with Porcini Crumb Topping
    Lemony Broccoli Salad
    Baked Acorn Squash with Chestnuts, Apples and Leeks
    Quick White Bean Stew with Swiss Chard and Tomatoes
    Quinoa Salad with Sweet Potatoes and Apples
    Roasted Beets and Carrots with Goat Cheese Dressing
    Creamy Polenta with Kale and Ricotta

    I am not entirely sure I did the canning right because this is my first foray into the matter, but yeah dude I am going to slather that curd over every single thing that goes into my mouth for the next month. Scones? Check. Ice cream? Check. Roast beef? Check.

    The recipes you listed below sound fantastic, particularly the Quinoa salad and the veggies with goat cheese dressing. Please post photos when you get around to making these.

    Nice looking work, Courtney. Simple recipes, fresh ingredients, good execution = Food Porn!

    Btw, I feel ya on the overcooked broccoli. I love the stuff, but damn there is such a fine line between it being al dente and overdone.

    Your food photos always give me an appetite.
    Whiskey Sour

    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    They both look great but that turnip casserole looks soooo yummy.

    I made a hot and healthy chili tonight that I'm rather happy with. I've learned that you can't go wrong by adding more chili powder than you think you need.

    Depends how hot you like it. Adding a couple extra tbsp and letting it simmer makes it come out nicely.

    Thanks, but my food photos from now on aren't going to be very good -- I got rid of my professional camera when I entered grad school, so I'm just going to be using my cell phone now.

    I've got a Tupperware party later this week - I know it's pricey but there is some great stuff online.

    Sorry for the blurry pic, but this was my first attempt ever at making rack of lamb. I made it for Christmas dinner, only to find out that most of my family doesn't eat lamb. Out of 17 slices, only 5 were eaten.

    OH NO THAT IS SO WRONG

    I LOVE lamb. Robin, it looks beautiful. I certainly would have enjoyed it. Maybe your family doesn't like rare to med rare meat? But still, that's just rude.




    And Courtney, send me some lime curd!

    Lol. Thanks! I'm glad I also made a beer infused chicken. My family knew I was making lamb. I wish they would have told me earlier that they didn't eat it at all. I would have saved a bit of money.

    None. I only eat chicken as a meat.

    I ended up bringing most of the leftover lamb to my regular pub for the bouncers and bartenders working that night.
