Sourdough Biscuits and Sausage Gravy

image_pdfimage_print

I’m loving my sourdough starter! I’ve got ideas a page long to incorporate those sour notes from the live starter into a variety of sweet and savory breads. And here is one that didn’t disappoint.

My husband loves biscuits and gravy. I decided to give it a try as sourdough biscuits. Bread is a fermented product. The yeast is what facilitates the process. In sourdough, the yeast that is created is a wild yeast. That’s what gives it that unique tang, or sourness. When that dough is used for biscuits, it gives the biscuits a unique, rustic flavor that just seems to pair perfectly with the saltyness of the pork sausage. Add an egg to balance it all out and viola! You have a breakfast fit for a biscuit loving spouse!

Does it sound good? Continue reading

It’s National Corn on the Cob Day!

image_pdfimage_print

Corn on the Cob day? Yep. A special day to celebrate that summer treat we all look forward to. Grilled, roasted, or boiled, these golden gems grace our barbecue parties, picnics and dining room tables. So what’s the best way to serve it up?

Well, I say keep it on the cob. It’s the butter that gives it the flair for the party. And here are a five delicious ideas to dress up your corn!

I like to grill or roast the corn still in the husk. If you soak it in warm water for a bit, it helps to steam the corn and keep it moist and juicy. Another delicious method is to remove the husk and cook it up directly on the grill, but watch it. You don’t want to dry it out! Boiling and steaming are other popular methods. And contrary to some reports, corn is good for you! It’s rich in fiber, thiamin, niacin, folic acid and more. There are more than five essential minerals found in corn – and it tastes good!

So keep reading to find some great buttery ideas for your corn. Continue reading

Cheese Stuffed Morels

image_pdfimage_print

Farmer’s market had lots of morels!! Lucky for me the season ran late this year. What beauties they had – and huge! Needless to say I bought enough to sauté with some steak as well as make a delicious appetizer for the next day.

What is a morel you might ask? It is an absolutley beautiful wild mushroom that grows like crazy here in Oregon. It is meaty and moist with a hollow interior. The flavor is a mild, woodsy, nutty flavor. Some folk call them bland, but I don’t think so.

Baby Artichokes with Garlic Scapes

image_pdfimage_print

I had never heard of using garlic scapes until a few years ago. The scape is the bud that starts to form at the top of garlic. This is removed late in June to encourage the bulb to get bigger.  

These green stems have a slightly garlicy onion flavor and are fantastic used like green onions – cooked or raw! I found some at the farmer’s market (along with the baby artichokes) and decided to cook it all up with dinner.
