In October and November, I had a great time cooking along with French Fridays with Dorie. Then life got busy and hard, and I took December off, and then January.

This week, I’m back, and tomorrow, you’ll see a lovely Basque dish that’s straight out of my childhood, with a surprise cooking co-star.

It’s niggling at me, though, those two months I missed, so I figured I’d have a little fun playing catch-up.

Here’s how it works:

Comment below and tell me which of these recipes you want me to make first. I’ll make the dish that gets the most votes this weekend. Then, on Sunday, I’ll choose one of you at random to win a tacky fabulous prize package.1

Sweet and Spicy Cocktail Nuts
My Go-to Beef Daube
Leek and Potato Soup
Speculoos
Spiced Butter-Glazed Carrots
paris mushroom soup
gnocchi a la parisienne
michel rostang’s double chocolate mousse cake
chicken b’stilla

C’mon, you know you want to see what nuttery I’m up to THIS time, right?

1: one wacky vintage cookbook from my collection2; one recipe card with the winning recipe written on it in my own handwriting; and one silly little cheesy gift of my choosing
2: (Previous winners have gotten such gems as The Joy of Jello, and the Cut-up Cake Cookbook.)

Elandon Roberts’s fumble forcing shot on Jets running back Khiry Robinson felt like the first play he’d made since Jamie Collins was traded at the end of October. The Patriots linebackers played well even as the best among them, Dont’a Hightower, missed the game with a knee issue. This was the rare occasion when he wasn’t especially missed.That image shows the so called “water massage” that was used to treat the condition. For women who didn’t like being shot in the crotch with a jet of high pressure water, the doctor could use his fingers to create the same mysterious effect, which they referred to as “hysterical paroxysm” before someone explained to them what an orgasm was.Oddly enough, the Patriots, winners of the last Super Bowl and of three additional titles this century, have angled themselves as Cheap china Jerseys an underdog of sorts. discount football jerseys At least, that’s the mentality the players are adopting. Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman’s preseason hype video, released Wednesday, analogized the start of the American Revolution with the beginning of the Patriots’ 2015 season.More formal ball games were eventually developed by British schoolboys, but each school had their own set of rules. When different teams played against each other, they had to compromise on the rules used for that particular game. In 1848, representatives from many schools met at Cambridge to try and create a unified rule system, and several more meetings held over the next two decades formed the basis of modern soccer. The football community was divided, however. Some preferred a rougher game in which the ball could be carried, while others were playing something akin to today’s soccer. The two sides eventually split, with the other game becoming rugby [Source: Murray]. The soccer clubs formed an organization that would codify and regulate the rules the Football Association. Thus, the game became known as Association Football. Today, most of the world simply calls it football, but Americans refer to it as soccer, a term taken from part of the word association.Work hard and be patient. Becoming a professional athletic scout cheap jerseys china is the epitome of the classic phrase, “give more than you’re paid for now and in the future you’ll be paid for more than you give.” Colleges and professional teams are very conservative and deliberate when considering employing scouts. They cheap nfl jerseys must have high confidence in the player evaluations they cheap nba jerseys receive. There are often large sums of money involved either through full scholarships or professional contracts. It is imperative that schools and teams minimize the risk of signing the wrong players for their environments.

I run The Mom Food Project, which was born out of love for my mom and a desire to preserve the recipes of my childhood, which didn't actually exist in written form until I quizzed my mom and wrote the recipes down.

  1. I vote for My Go-to Beef Daube cuz the first time I read it I thought it said “My Go to Bed Daube” and as tired and hungry as I am right now, that sounded wonderful.

  2. Sweet and spicy cocktail nuts. I’m in party food mode because I hear there’s this big event involving some sort of game this weekend…

  3. Another vote for the Daube!

    It’s good to see you up and posting again. Hope things continue to improve for you!

  4. Speculoos!

    I used to use the Joys of Jello cookbook in the early ’70’s before I became a vegetarian. I remember one recipe where you would put shredded coconut and jello powder into a container and shake them up — good for people who like coconut and Pixy Stix and so on!

      1. Thanks for the cookbook! I had completely forgotten about it until about a week ago when I was thinking of FOGCon and a vague memory started to surface. :-)

        I just made the “Danish Applesauce Cake” recipe (though substituting dried apricots for the raisins because I don’t much care for raisins), and am enjoying some hot slices!

        Thanks for the push-pins as well … I have a big corkboard in the kitchen that I put them on — for some reason they smell like coconut!

        1. I am SO embarrassed it took me so long to mail that. Lesson learned; I’ll offer virtual gifts in the future, because I can’t be trusted to go to the post office. (They probably smell like vanilla; they were packed with a vanilla bean for the first six months, but then I felt bad about giving you an ancient vanilla bean.)
