Karl’s Kefir, Lime and Mint Sauce

Miriam was specific on what sauces she wanted for her kofta. She wanted a sauce with kefir, mint, and lime. The recipes on-line were either too simple or had way too many ingredients. I wanted something that was cooling, clean, and fresh.

Karl’s Pesto

Karl’s Weekday Thanksgiving with Dried Cranberry Sauce

Jan really loves turkey and she has been running her legs off at work (literally, yesterday she walked 7 miles back and forth across campus, as recorded by her Fitbit).

Karl’s Mole Poblano

A few months ago I had tried making molé for the first time, based on a recipe by Ty and Juels. This was one of our Sunday challenges before I started writing this blog. I found Ty’s recipe, but I could not help myself, I had to make some changes. That is just the kind of cook I am, I even have trouble following my own recipes. I rarely make the same dish the same way twice, I am constantly tinkering.
