Wife Jan asked for another Noom recipe for dinner, Curried Sweet Potato and Apple Soup—which I determined was identical to one from Prevention. As has been the case over the last week, I have found I had disagreements with Noom’s ideas about recipes—not enough vegetables or spices. I adapted the recipe to my tastes.

Karl’s Lime Apple Sauce
Wife Jan is on the BRAT diet—bananas, rice, apples, and toast. We had a basket full of apples and she decided to turn it into apple sauce to make it easier to eat. The idea in her head was to make a sauce version of my lime apples. While this produced an excellent, tasty apple sauce, I could not help but make some “improvements” when I made another batch for her.

Karl’s Lime Apples
Many years ago, when my older daughter got her braces I was left with a dilemma.

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
