To refresh your memory, here is the list of ingredients I want(ed) to use up: pine nuts, lemon curd, oat flour, soy flour, corn meal, sesame tahini, rice vinegar, sesame oil and cider vinegar.I tried many recipes using these ingredients and appreciate those who gave suggestions. I've learned that the reason we still have the last 3 ingredients is that we don't seem to like them in anything! The first 3 ingredients are now gone, and I'm plugging away on the others. Here are a few recipes we tried that I can recommend:
Creamy Citrus Tartlets (These were light, easy and delicious. Thanks, Elaine!)
Oatmeal Cookie Waffles (Won't replace our standby recipe, but was a yummy way to use up the random oat flour we were given. Note that there are 6 yummy waffle recipes in this link!)
5-Minute Hummus (I've tried numerous hummus recipes over the years, and finally found one I like, though I added several extra cloves of garlic. It's extra yummy paired with these simple homemade pita chips.)
When I was making a new bread recipe over the weekend, Eric asked me why I don't just stick with ones we already know we like, instead of trying new ones. It's a good question. I find I'm somewhat of a recipe collector: I frequently tear pages from magazines or print recipes from the Internet, even though I have a binder full of winners already. Anyone else do the same?
*In the same June post, I also requested your recommendations for a book to give Eric for Father's Day. He browsed the list of books you suggested and chose Sacred Parenting. Thanks, Amy, for sharing your review! Eric really liked the book and now it's been sitting for months in my massive reading pile. =)
