I was hungry and I wondered if there were any quick recipes left in TJOC. I found Cheese toast (p. 182)
This is such a short post! So I will answer a short quiz (and would love you to answer it too!).
Breakfast item: Hash browns--but the little squares, not the shreds. I LOVE the TJOC recipe. Incorporating the cream just makes the even more delicious. Granted, I don't regularly eat breakfast so I usually make hash browns for lunch or dinner.
Soup: Tortilla soup (no chicken). I make it all the time. IMO, it's vital to make your own tortilla chips (it only takes a few minutes!) and your own chicken stock (so that you can control the salt content). I really love soup. I REALLY love soup.
Dessert: I like old-fashioned desserts. I make a great rice pudding and an amazing bread pudding. My blueberry buckle is amazing. And I love pineapple upside-down cake but I can only eat it if it's made with canned pineapple (I'm allergic to fresh--the canning process inactivates the enzyme I'm allergic to).
Spice: I must be bland, because I think my favorite spices are vanilla and pepper (although rarely together). I don't like cinnamon, making me a real anomaly (or so it seems).
Ice cream flavor: Butter pecan or pralines and cream, hands down. Josh makes Earl Grey ice cream all the time and it tastes too much like flowers to me.
Beer: Lindeman's lambic in cassis. LOVE IT.
Ask me more favorites! Tell me yours!
