lisa's blog http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/articles/lisa en Sunday Brunch: Popovers http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/sunday-brunch-popovers <p> There is a certain charm to something absurdly easy and impressive. That sort of thing that you can be known for whipping up on a Sunday morning to impress your friends who don't cook, and how no idea that it takes no talent at all. This thing is called a popover. It is delicious. </p> <p>For popovers:</p> <p>1 Tb oil or melted butter, plus more for greasing muffin pan<br /> 2 eggs<br /> 1 cup milk<br /> 1 tsp sugar<br /> 1/2 tsp salt<br /> 1 cup flour</p> <p>For serving:<br /> Jam, butter, honey, etc.</p> <p>Heat oven to 425. Put the pan into the oven to heat while mixing the batter. </p> <p>Mix the first five ingredients in a bowl until inportated. Add the flour little by little, making sure batter is smooth.</p> <p>Remove pan or popover tin from oven (with care). Fill each cup 1/2 way.</p> <p>Bake for 15 minutes at 425, then reduce heat to 350 for another 15 minutes.&nbsp; The popovers should be golden brown and puffed up.</p> <p>Makes 10-12, depending on tin. </p> <p> <img width="300" height="225" src="/sites/default/files/IMG_1133.JPG" alt="" /></p> <p><img width="300" height="225" src="/sites/default/files/IMG_1135.JPG" alt="" /></p> <p><img width="300" height="225" src="/sites/default/files/IMG_1136.JPG" alt="" /></p> <p><img width="300" height="225" src="/sites/default/files/IMG_1137.JPG" alt="" /></p> <p><img width="300" height="225" src="/sites/default/files/IMG_1138.JPG" alt="" /></p> <p><img width="300" height="225" src="/sites/default/files/IMG_1139.JPG" alt="" /></p> <p><img width="300" height="225" src="/sites/default/files/IMG_1140.JPG" alt="" /></p> http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/sunday-brunch-popovers#comments bake bread breakfast easy popover quick sweet Meals In Minutes Mon, 20 Apr 2009 16:31:35 +0000 lisa 192 at http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com Potatoes with White Wine and Paprika http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/potatoes-with-white-wine-and-paprika <p>This isn't even really a recipe, but it's delicious, and deserves to be spread around. My roommate Shayla has lately gotten me into filet mignon. The grocery store near our house will cut it to order, which sort of evens out the rediculous prices, becuase you can ask for a piece just the right size. A little salt and pepper and a good sear is all that they need. And, of course, a side.</p> <p>I love me a boiled potato. You may have noticed. They are creamy and simple and good, and can take a range of flavors. This one is perfect because it works warm, or you can prepare it a day ahead and take it as a picnic or lunch. It works for one or ten. What more could you want, really?</p> <p>For Potatoes:</p> <p>Good quality potatoes, think four small or two medium per person<br /> A dry white wine<br /> Good, fruity olive oil<br /> Hot paprika<br /> Salt<br /> Fresh ground pepper<br /> Scallions, about 1/2-1 per portion</p> <p>Set potatoes to boil in well-salted water. While they are boiling, chop the white and light green parts of the scallions in small rounds. When the potatoes are soft and easily pierced with a fork, drain and quickly spalsh with white wine. (Measurements are hard here--1 tablespoon or a bit more per portion? Start with less. You can always add). Follow with a glug of olive oil (again, you can always add more). Sprinkle with 1/3 teaspoon of paprika per portion, or more to taste. Add salt and pepper. Toss, taste, and add more as needed. Eat, cold, hot, or standing. </p> http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/potatoes-with-white-wine-and-paprika#comments cold easy paprika picnic potato quick salad side warm Meals In Minutes Mon, 13 Apr 2009 05:54:22 +0000 lisa 189 at http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com Sandwich for dinner, s'il vous plait. http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/sandwich-for-dinner-sil-vous-plait <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Every now and then, you just get a yen for something. My housemate Shayla and I&nbsp;were walking through Propect Park after work today, which was shady and damp and beautiful in that rainy day way. We got lost for a while in the trees, taking dead-end paths by the lake, and suddenly she said &quot;I&nbsp;just got the strongest craving for a tuna sandwich.&quot;</p> <p>Odd, perhaps, but that reminded me of the sandwiches you get in Paris, simple baguettes with tuna and egg that hit the spot. And the dinner was on.</p> <p>This can be made for one, or a group, and adjusted as needed (as usual!). Similarly, good ingredients go a long way, because you really taste what goes in there. A leaf of lettuce would work nicely. You could leave out the tomatoes, or the anchovies. You might add a cucumber, or put it on a roll instead, and make a <a href="http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Pan-Bagnat-109797"><em>pan bagnat</em></a>. The world is your oyster.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Here's a rough outline:</p> <p>1/4-1/3 of a baguette</p> <p>1 egg per person, hard boiled</p> <p>1/3-1/2 a can tuna, preferably of good quality, packed in olive oil</p> <p>2-4 anchovy fillets, optional</p> <p>2-4 black olives (nicoise or kalamata)</p> <p>good mustard</p> <p>good mayonaise.</p> <p>veggies of choice</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I like to toast the bread slightly, until still soft in the middle but a little crunchy outside. You can toast it whole, and then cut all the way or only part way through the baguette--in the latter situation, open it like a book to fill it. Spread mayonaise on one side, mustard on the other, then add tuna, flaked in big chunks. Put the slices of anchovies if using, then the egg. Add desired veggies, then the olive, sliced or whole, in a little line.</p> <p>Add a simple, lightly dressed salad, and there you go. <em>Bon appetite</em>.</p> http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/sandwich-for-dinner-sil-vous-plait#comments dinner egg lunch sandwich tuna Meals In Minutes Tue, 07 Apr 2009 02:35:16 +0000 lisa 182 at http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com Warm potato salad with smoked trout and arugula http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/warm-potato-salad-with-smoked-trout-and-arugula <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" style="width: 387px; height: 258px;" src="http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/sites/default/files/IMG_0029.JPG" />&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/warm-potato-salad-with-smoked-trout-and-arugula" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/warm-potato-salad-with-smoked-trout-and-arugula#comments arugula cheap fish french main potato quick side trout vegetable Meals In Minutes Sun, 29 Mar 2009 23:30:52 +0000 lisa 176 at http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com Taste of Home (in green) http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/taste-of-home-in-green <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" style="width: 297px; height: 223px;" src="http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/sites/default/files/IMG_1236.JPG" /></p> <p><img src="file:///Users/lriordanseville/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems/moz-screenshot.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p><img src="file:///Users/lriordanseville/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems/moz-screenshot-1.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p><a href="http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/taste-of-home-in-green" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/taste-of-home-in-green#comments Cheap Eats cheese easy Mexican recession gourmet tomatillo Mon, 23 Mar 2009 12:54:07 +0000 lisa 174 at http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com Recipe for a Housetoasting http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/recipe-for-a-housetoasting <img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-1015" src="http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/img_1232-225x300.jpg" alt="img_1232" width="225" height="300" /> I only have a sec--this weekend got away from me, and I am already late for a workshop I have this morning--but I wanted to share with you a marvel of the modern world--the Peep. We had a "housetoasting" on Saturday (named after the three toasters we inherited, along with one pull out sofa and vitually nothing else when moving in to our new house).<p><a href="http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/recipe-for-a-housetoasting" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/recipe-for-a-housetoasting#comments Cheap Eats Fancy Food Tue, 17 Mar 2009 03:37:37 +0000 lisa 169 at http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com Fresh Made Pasta http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/fresh-made-pasta <img class="size-medium wp-image-963 alignnone" src="http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/img_1199-300x225.jpg" alt="img_1199" width="369" height="276" />.<img class="size-medium wp-image-964 alignright" src="http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/img_1200-300x225.jpg" alt="img_1200" width="368" height="276" /> It began with a stew hen.

We were too busy eating and talking to document, which is something you can never be too sorry about. Plus, as usual, I learned that I wanted to tweak the Moroccan lentil soup a bit, change spices, add salt, smooth it out to make it velvety.<p><a href="http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/at-the-masthead" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/at-the-masthead#comments Global Hidden Gems Taste Education Mon, 02 Mar 2009 17:30:15 +0000 lisa 161 at http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com Chicken Bun http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/content/chicken-bun <img class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-624" src="http://www.gourmetgastronomer.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/img_1137-300x225.jpg" alt="img_1137" width="300" height="225" /> When I think of the house where my friend <a href="http://kitchensidecar.blogspot.com/">Katie</a> grew up, I think of her kitchen.
