Karl’s Apple Rice Pudding

Jan just had a temporary crown put in so she asked for one of her favorite comfort foods, rice pudding. As usual, I had to change something. Today, I decided to throw in some apple.

Karl’s Lime Apples

Many years ago, when my older daughter got her braces I was left with a dilemma. I had usually put an apple in her school lunch, but with the braces she could not longer just bite into them without pain. If I simply cut the fruit into wedges and put them in  a plastic bag they would turn brown and unappealing by her lunch time.

Karl’s Green Onion and Apple Rice

I am making broiled salmon with dill tonight and I wanted a starch dish to go with it. I thought apples and rice. Then, I thought green onions and tarragon would fit in nicely.

Karl’s Asian Apple Cabbage Salad II

This seems to be my week for trying to improve recipes I have made recently. Last week I made an Asian influenced salad to go with my salmon teriyaki. I am making salmon again and the salad was good enough that I wanted to try and make it better.

Karl’s Asian Apple Cabbage Salad

I had decided to have salmon teriyaki for dinner on a week night. Usually I would serve rice and Japanese pickles with this. I decided that I wanted something different, maybe some kind of Asian salad.

Karl’s Scones with Dried Apples

Jan was using one of her few opportunities to sleep in this morning. I—of course—woke up at 6, like I usually do. I decided to surprise her with scones this morning.

Claudia’s Poultry Dressing

When I left home I copied out my favorite recipes from my mother’s card file. These recipes were limited to what she could fit onto a 3×5 card. They were meant more to remind her how to make a dish, rather than to instruct someone else on how to make them. They were sometimes quite cryptic to the uninitiated. The Thanksgiving stuffing I make today is a direct descendant of Claudia’s dressing. Continue reading

Karl’s Sweet Potato and Apple Casserole

Our Sunday paper has a supplement, the USA Weekend, which usually includes one of those recipes for people who do not really cook—you know the add “can A” to “can B” kind. This week they actually had a recipe for Thanksgiving that Jan thought looked pretty good. Not being one to follow any recipe, I had to make some changes.

Claudia’s Apple Crisp

Before I left home for the first time, I sat down with my mother’s recipe box and wrote down my favorite dishes. She would usually only make this a few times each year, but we always loved it.  Continue reading

Karl’s Sweet Potato Latkes with Apple Sauce

I have always struggled with making latkes. I am forced to limit the amount of oil that I cook with because of Jan’s dietary restrictions. As a result, fried foods are not a common occurrence in my household. Without enough oil in the pan to half-deep fry the potatoes the centers of the latkes never quite get cooked before the outsides are nearing burnt. Thank you cooking shows!  I noticed that professional cooks sometimes “finish off” pan-fried dishes to avoid this problem. Ten minutes in a 350° oven insured that they were cooked and did not destroy the crispness of the latkes.
