Somewhere in the vast universe of cooking videos, I watched Jacques Pepin create 3 vegetable salads. I was riveted as I always am when watching this great man cook. But here was the shocker: the third recipe he demonstrated in the video was a Cream Dressing that his mother used to make. While making […]
Missing a lot of items in my newly moved into kitchen, so I flavored the sautéed onions, carrots, celery with fresh garlic, dried thyme, salt and pepper and ketchup. Sprinkled flour to sautéed veggies, poured over some beef broth (from Better Than Bouillon). Simmered till carrots were done. Added frozen peas. Then topped with previously […]
