Karl’s Breakfast Pan Quiche

I made mini quiches for wife Jan’s Ethnobreakfast. Since I had never done this before, I was unsure how much of the egg mixture I would need to fill the mini muffin cups. I whipped up a dozen eggs, but found out that I only need to use ten. This left me with two eggs worth of my egg mixture. I decided to use it for my own breakfast.

Karl’s Dubliner Guinness Bread

In past St. Patrick’s days, I would make quick Guinness beer bread. This year my wife bought me a Fourneau Bread Oven for my birthday, as a result, she gets the recipe updates, not me. She forwarded this one for St. Patrick’s Day for our Sunday dinner with the family. I, kind of, followed their recipe.

Karl’s Mac & Cheese with Bacon and Leek

Eilene is having some friends over. I decided to make their favorite Mac & Cheese. When she and her friends make this for themselves they, of course, use the “orange stuff in a box.” This is just starch, fat, and chemicals, not a meal.

Jan’s Challahpeños

Jan and I were discussing what to have with the challah I was making. Jan wanted me to make super-mini challah in the mini-muffin pan. Jan piped up with you could put jalapeños in it and they would be  challahpeños! How far will this family go for a good pun? Apparently quite far.

Claudia’s Cheese Strada

Before I left home for the first time, I sat down with my mother’s recipe box and wrote down my favorite dishes.  I have referenced  my mother’s strada before, but I did not post the original recipe. Today I am posting another variation, so I thought I would put up Claudia’s family recipe. My memory is she was making this in the Fifties, long before it became a fashionable dish in the Seventies.

Karl’s Italian Sausage Lasagna

Son-in-law, Chris, is leaving on another trip, so the kids are not coming over for Sunday dinner. Jan requested something forbidden by his ketogenic diet, lasagna. Since this is also our anniversary week (31st) I agreed to make it for her. I also made her favorite salad, carrot, to go with it.

Karl’s Roasted Cauliflower Leyden au Gratin

Jan’s first fieldwork was with the Kwinti Maroons of Suranam. To follow up on the records of this people she had to spend some time searching the colonial records in Holland. While she was there she fell in love with Leyden cheese, which is a Gouda cheese with cumin seeds.

Karl’s Palak Paneer

From my research on the web I understand that the difference between Palak and Saag Paneer is that if you only use only spinach it is a Palak and if you use a mixture of greens it is a Saag. When people come to Silicon Valley, they bring their food with them. As Californians we often feel it necessary to mash these recipes up with other cuisines. Today, I am doing an Indian shepherd’s pie, a mash up of Indian and English cuisines. I am thinking of making my palak a bit more French by adding wine.

The French girl goes home tomorrow. Eilene is planning to have a bunch of her friends over for dinner, because Jan is teaching tonight. The question is what to feed them.

Karl’s Cheese Strada

Before I left home for the first time, I sat down with my mother’s recipe box and wrote down my favorite dishes.  Mom’s Cheese Strada apparently had eggplant in it (I don’t remember this being the case, but it is clear on the card that I typed up at the time). Since that time I have discovered that I am allergic to eggplant (No moussaka for you!), so I have rewritten the recipe to suit myself.
