    Recipe Blogging: Joojeh Kebab

    Well, as threatened, I’ll be putting up a few recipes over the holiday season, in the spirit of “Never trust an organic chemist who can’t cook”. This one is a classic kebab recipe from my wife’s side of the family – ask any Iranian, and they’ll know about joojeh kebab. I keep thinking it would… Read More

    Pecan Pie, Of Course

    I’m taking the day off from work, in preparation for Thanksgiving here in the US. One of my activities will be to engage in this Holiday Organic Synthesis prep of chocolate pecan pie (the comments to that post have several refinements, especially for non-US readers who may have to do some ingredient substitutions). I make… Read More

    Recipe Blogging: Bean Soup With Country Ham, and Cornbread

    I’m reposting some food preps from a couple of years ago, since this was last night’s dinner around here. These are two posts combined, soup and cornbread. The cornbread was also my breakfast this morning – I started the day with some of the batch that I’d added cut-up jalapeño peppers to, which caused my… Read More

    Holiday Blogging: Gingersnaps

    As I type this, I am eating one of these cookies, so that should be an endorsement. We often make these during the holidays – I found the the recipe online about fifteen years ago (source lost, as you’d figure, even if it’s still up somewhere), and it’s been a reliable performer. The ingredients are… Read More

    Cold-Weather Chicken Soup

    Since the weather forecast around here is for snow, and temperatures down to -9 F (-22 C), I thought a recipe or two for some cold-weather food might be appropriate. Here’s a chicken soup recipe adapted from Craig Claiborne that I’ve been making for twenty years now – that is, it’s pretty reliable. 1 chicken… Read More

    Russian Soured Cabbage

    Here’s a recipe that I’m trying out this year from The Joy of Pickling, an excellent book full of all sorts of pickle recipes. I have a good-sized batch of this going right now, and samples so far confirm that it’s good stuff. 1 2 1/2 pound cabbage (1 kilo), shredded 1 tablespoon salt (17… Read More

    A Quick Recipe: Lime Sorbet

    This is not a complicated thing to make, but it’s terrific. My family and I polished off a large batch of it last night – it’s still warm and humid enough around here to make it an excellent dessert. The only thing you need is some sort of stirring ice-cream freezer – we have one… Read More

    A Fourth of July Recipe: Pork Tenderloin and Sour Onion Salsa

    In keeping with tradition around here, I wanted to put up a recipe for the holiday. It’s pretty hot out there for standing next to a grill (but I’ll be doing that later today anyway!) Here’s one that gets made around here at Pipeline Headquarters fairly often. It’s not something that can be whipped up… Read More

    Another Recipe: Cornbread

    Here’s the cornbread that I made to go along with the bean soup – in fact, I’m eating a piece now as I write this. This is adapted from the Cook’s Illustrated people, and I’ve found this to be one of the better all-cornmeal recipes I’ve tried (a lot of recipes have half wheat flour… Read More
