Karl’s Shrimp and Wild Rice Stuffed Mushrooms

Timing is always a challenge when making a Thanksgiving’s day meal, so an appetizer or two is always a good idea to keep the hordes at bay. While Eilene hates mushrooms, everyone else loves them. This is a dish you can cook slightly ahead and quickly re-warm just before serving.

Karl’s Brussels Sprouts with Wild Rice and Pancetta   

A meat and carbohydrates heavy Thanksgiving dinner calls for at least one green vegetable side. This year, I decided on Brussels sprouts, one of Jan’s favorites. However, being a holiday meal I wanted something more than just plain steamed sprouts.

Karl’s Wild Rice Salad

Jan wants to go to a movie for Mother’s Day, Avengers: Age of Ultron. For me this means making dishes that I can prep ahead. To go with my steamed mussels, I decided that a rice salad would be nice. In days past I would probably have used white Jasmine rice, but with my diabetes I am going with whole grains.

Karl’s Asian Mushroom and Wild Rice Soup

Adapted from an Americas Test Kitchen recipe

I am incapable of following a recipe, even my own. I know that the chefs at ATK have spent days perfecting their recipe, but I have to make changes. I cannot help myself—I watch cooking shows more for tips and techniques, rather than instructions.

Karl’s Wild Turkey Barley Soup

Jan’s new job is very stressful. When she is stressed, she wants comfort food. For her this is soup, today it is turkey. The “wild” in this title is the wild rice, not the alcoholic beverage—although if you feel cheated, it would not hurt the dish to add it when you add the leeks and carrots.

Karl’s Mediterranean Wild Rice Pilaf with Chicken and Shrimp

Eilene has settled into a routine of a video night on Thursday. Three to five of her friends will show up to watch the Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones or whatever they are into that week. I, of course, am delegated to feed the masses. It is a struggle to think, “What will I feed several starving teenagers this week.”

Karl’s Black and Wild Rice Salad

When Jan was visiting her friends, one of them made a salad out of the January issue of Bon appétit. She bought the magazine and asked for this salad for dinner. While the salad looked good, I wanted to make some changes. I do not like cooked squash, especially cold cooked squash.

Karl’s Wild Rice Pilaf

This is one of those recipes where I took a cooking technique from another recipe that completely changes the dish.  I have been making variations of this dish for most of my cooking life, but it rarely came out how I knew it should be.  For me this has been a dish in constant evolution, I do not think I have ever made it the same way twice.  This is the first time I have even written it down.
