Ok... so some of us are planning for NaNoWriMo... I'm planning for Thanksgiving (which is also next month for us USA people).

Normally I do the green bean dish thing. With the can of campbells soup and those french onion toppers.

I don't want to do that this year.

So what I want is suggestions of people's favorite veggie dishes. Hot or cold.

Easy basic potstickers, requested by a friend.

Potstickers, Long and Image IntensiveCollapse )

Naturally, there are countless variants. You can use tofu instead of meat, you can skip the sriracha in the liquid mix and use other flavours, you can mix crushed chili peppers in the meat mix... just go nuts and use what you like, feel free to share your favorite ways to make potstickers!

Just did a delicious quick thai curry soup after something I tasted at a restaurant in Austria, so I thought I'd share:

So, I had an excess of peaches. It happens when I spot that 30 peaches are only €5. I've had an excess of other fruits, and sadly they usually go bad before I can bake with them. Or I eat them all. This time I was determined to use these peaches before they went. So I searched through my rarely used baking section of my personal cook book, and I found a recipe for Cobbler. Technically Blackberry Peach Cobbler, but I didn't have blackberries, and I had more peaches than was require by the recipe. I wanted to use as many as possible, so I made this into a straight Peach Cobbler. I made a few other alterations, as well. So, here we go.

I don't think I've posted this before, infact, I know I haven't!

This is really my favorite, and is easy to make.

Hey, guys. We had a bunch of rice left over from dinner a few nights ago, so I decided to try my hand at rice pudding. I'd never made it before, but I found this really easy recipe online and modified it a little bit.

Awesome Rice Pudding

3 cups cooked white rice
3 cups milk (I use a can of evaporated milk and one cup of regular stuff, to make it creamier)
2/3 cup sugar
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup raisins
1 tsp vanilla extract
Zest of 1 lemon, grated
1 tsp cinnamon, divided

Combine cooked rice, milk, sugar, and butter in a medium saucepan. Add raisins and vanilla (if you're using nuts, don't add them till you've taken the pan off the heat). Cook for 25 minutes until most of the liquid is absorbed. Mix in lemon zest and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon (and nuts, if you have them). Spoon pudding into a serving dish and dust with remaining cinnamon. May serve chilled or at room temperature.

I added craisins instead of raisins, orange zest instead of lemon zest, and chopped almonds, and had orange-cranberry-nut pudding. Great stuff!

I'm not going a very traditional route, mainly because it's only two of us. Though I am using turkey...
