Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Cooking With Ina

Continuing my
"Cooking With Ina"
for 2017,
I fixed the following:

Blue Cheese Dressing
Make It Ahead
Her salad was iceberg with the blue cheese dressing,
I used romaine because Husband Jim favors it
The blue cheese dressing goes together quickly
and has simple ingredients that one always has on it.
I have a favorite blue cheese dressing that I've had "forever"
This isn't quite as good, but it takes less ingredients and is easy to make.
I would make it again.

We feasted again on beef bourguignon
It makes a lot!
This time I served it as Ina did on grilled bread rubbed with garlic
It was really good that way and liked it much better than the way
I had originally served it.

Picture form Ina -- I forgot to take a picture!

Angel hair pasta with Cherry tomatoes
This is a favorite that I make a lot -- especially in the summer
when the cherry tomatoes come from the Farmer's Market.
It's a favorite and easy summer lunch or dinner for us.

Pain Perdue
Served not as Ina did -- with strawberries and almonds and a shower of powdered sugar --
for dessert
But rather the "American" way -- for breakfast!
We prefer granulated sugar sprinkled on it rather than powdered sugar
I really did like what Ina added to the eggs and milk -- vanilla, honey and orange zest
I will definitely follow this recipe next time I make "French" toast!

Baked Shrimp Scampi
OMG, is this ever good!    Although I've good a lot from Ina, I've not made this before.
But it won't be the last.    It is fantastic!    Husband Jim raved about it as well!
