What to do with goat cheese crumbles?

Great in omelettes with your choice of additions, chopped roasted veggies or herbs would complement.

Looking for recipes for vegetable dishes!

Greek salad. My version is chopped cucumber, red onion, kalamata olives, tomatoes, optional peppers or pepperoncini, optional feta cheese, vinaigrette with oregano (fresh is nice). Yesterday I had a more substantial version on romaine with chopped chicken breast.

Bon Appetite says Sirarcha's "Totally Over." Agree?

Maybe I'm late to this party, but I just noticed Sriracha ketchup (Heinz?) in a store yesterday. Pretty silly.

What Unusual or Uncommon Vegetables Do You Eat - And how do you prepare them?

DH bought some turnips the other day, trying to find best use. Saw a vid of southern prep, they peeled and boiled with some kind of sausage, then mashed. I wonder what the sausage was, though. Perhaps salt pork or bacon could substitute.

Does anyone have a good macaroni and cheese recipe?

Reporting back on this one, made for lunch today. Verdict is: good, but needs tweaking. The mustard was unnecessary, it was too sharp in flavor. There was too much sauce and it thickened a lot, much like a roux. Next time, I'd use 2 T butter, only one egg, and maybe 6 oz of cheese to see if it would still work. Alternately, I suppose it could be thinned with milk. It's certainly easy, definitely worth trying again.

Does anyone have a good macaroni and cheese recipe?

I'm not fond of m & c with a roux, and like simple recipes. This sounds worth a try, thank you! Shall try Alton Brown's also and compare them.

MEH for the sriracha garlic BBQ sauce. I know my palate is not 100%, but it just didn't taste like much other than sweet with a bit of heat. I marinated chicken breasts for two nights, and they didn't have much flavor. I might use the rest on salmon and add some citrus juice.

Sorbet, ice cream, and other frosty treats

I've used the method at the provided link to make sorbets of many kinds (concord grape, yum!), it's pretty foolproof. The last time I made it, I had heirloom navel oranges to use and a bunch of chervil in the garden. When I made the invert sugar syrup, I steeped a handful of chervil in it while it cooled. I think I used 2 cups orange juice and one cup lemon juice to counter the syrup. It was still too sweet and syrup could have been halved, but the flavor was amazing. The chervil added a flowery background note. If you try it, please post!

Thank you for sharing your knowledge, Ms Fant, it is much appreciated!

MEH on the watermelon cucumber cooler, too sweet, would be an okay mixer. YAY for the fresh mozzarella cheese sticks, soft and tasty. I generally dislike rubbery bland string cheese.

Do a search for "fruits de mer", the classic cold preparation. Sounds at least partly like what you desire. Attached an example pic.

Pasta Sauce Cookbook?

I have an old book (from the 90s) called 365 Ways To Cook Pasta, by Marie Simmons. It has some outside the box ideas, as well as classics. Not sure if it would still be in print, though. Other than that, I'd have said Hazan. Thanks to everyone for the other sources.

Simple is Best

Sounds good! The other day I was starving at lunchtime and thinking of going out, but decided to hit the pantry for pasta sauce. Sautéed briefly one clove garlic and one anchovy, added one small can good diced tomatoes, whizzed with stick blender, s & p, and a few torn leaves of oregano, simmered 10-15 min. I happened to have a few small frozen meatballs, but just as good without. Think I got the tip on the anchovy from you, caia, so thanks!

Stuffed mushrooms [Recipe,please]

I have a similar recipe born of convenience, using one package Stouffer's spinach soufflé, thawed. Add parmigiano cheese and breadcrumbs, maybe a little sautéed diced onion, garlic, stems, herbs, etc. to your taste to make the stuffing and bake until soft. I prefer smaller mushrooms that are about two bites.

Love roasted/grilled veggies for cold leftovers, these both sound similarly good. Thanks!

Salmon banana

My best grilled (or broiled) method is a marinade of equal parts fresh oj, brown sugar, and soy or teriyaki sauce. Optional bit of grated ginger or Dijon mustard. Marinate filets for several hours. Even kids like this.

Trader Joe's Bolognese Spaghetti Sauce

I didn't know they had a canned version. I know they have Turkey Bolognese in the frozen section, it's not bad. Could you write TJs and ask for this particular product info since it's discontinued, can't hurt.

How Do I Thicken Buffalo Wing Sauce?

How Do I Thicken Buffalo Wing Sauce?

Frank's and butter, that's it. May have reduced awhile. Fry wings to desired doneness, then shake in covered container. I think the shaking required some vigor and duration. Maybe some vinegar on the side, if you need extra?

- born in Buffalo, ate many wings in the '80s

Spring Pies

This sounds too simple to be good, but it is. I like it with whipped cream for contrast.

No-Fuss Lemon Pie

3 lg eggs
1/2 c lemon juice
1 1/4 c sugar
1/4 c melted butter
1 unbaked pie crust

Combine first 3 in blender, blend 1-2 minutes. Add butter, blend 30 seconds. Pour into pie crust. Bake at 350 F for 30-35 minutes.

I've tried it in a quick-fix chicken soup with boxed broth and fresh veggies. Tasty and the texture is better than their frozen grilled strips, which were tough.
