Karl’s Salmon Toasts Points with Dill Sauce

This week, I am doing Sunday brunch for Mother’s Day and Miriam’s birthday. Miriam and mom agreed that something with salmon would be good. I decided on salmon toast points with dill sauce.

Karl’s Corn, Poblano and Crab Tamales

23andMe is a powerful, but dangerous tool. Jan has assumed she had one father, when in fact there were two. According to her genes, Jan’s ancestry is ¼ Iberian and ¼ Cora—although they refer to themselves as Naáyarite—an indigenous tribe that lives in the mountainous region of along the Jalisco / Nayarit border of north Pacific coast Mexico—although much of Jan’s extended family has moved to the coast.

Karl’s Sopa de Camarón

Jan’s newly discovered Mexican family lives/lived on the boarder of Jalisco and Nayarit. Jan decided on a Mexican Christmas feast of crab tamales, I though a shrimp soup would go nicely as a starter. I found a site on Nayarit cuisine that described a caldo de camarón (shrimp broth).  Adding some tomatoes, fresh shrimp, and cilantro makes it soup.

Karl’s Lox Schmear

I’m trying to catch up on my postings. While I did not stop cooking while Jan was working on her book, I did not have time to write them up. We were going to a party and as my contributions I thought I would bring crackers and schmear. My thought was to make a schmear that would be reminiscent of a classic lox bagel—lox, cream cheese, onions and capers.

Karl’s Cellophane Noodle Salad with Shrimp

The NYTimes sends me emails with recipes several time a week. A recent email was all about cold noodle dishes. As I read through them I got a hankering for cold noodles, but none of their dishes really suited me. I borrowed a few ideas from their cellophane noodle salad, but mine is based more on my Vietnamese summer rolls.

Karl’s Leftovers: Salmon Salad with Raspberry Radish Slaw

This Sunday we had a complex soup, cioppino,  that would take up most of my attention. I did not want to have just a plain greens salad, but it needed to be simple. Fortunately, yesterday was Jan and my 33rd anniversary and I had made salmon wraps for dinner.

Karl’s Salmon Lettuce Wraps with Raspberry Radish Slaw

Jan has been working 70-80 hour weeks lately—if only she would get paid for some of that overtime. It is hardly surprising that she has ended up working on our anniversary. Today is Jan and my 33rd anniversary. We are having the major celebration with cioppino tomorrow with the kids, but there is still tonight’s dinner to make special.

Karl’s Szechuan Pepper Shrimp and Arugula Salad

The mushroom hater is on an overnight at a friend’s house, so Jan asked for a mushroom dish. She really liked the last one I did, so I thought I would do a variation. Soup calls for salad and crackers.

Karl’s Leftovers: Salmon Cake

When I make my Sunday meals, I usually make enough for one to three leftover meals. Sometimes this means just the same meal again. Other times I use whatever is left over as the basis for a new dish.
