Recipes I've Shared:

Oatmeal Pancakes

These don’t have the usual cakelike crumb that most cakes do, but they taste wonderful. Use coarse-textured rolled oats for the best texture.

Cottage Cheese & Nutmeg Pancakes

These are wonderful! They tend to stick a little, so plan to add some oil or butter to the pan each time.

MISO SOUP WITH SHITAKE MUSHROOMS AND SESAME SEEDS

Because miso soup should never boil, it is remarkably quick and easy to prepare. Simply bring water almost to a boil, stir in the miso (I have chosen the most pungent variety, but you can use golden or white miso if you’d rather), and add a few flavorings. In this case, tamari, sautéed shitake mushrooms, and toasted sesame seeds fit the bill. Shredded raw carrots or daikon radish would be equally appropriate, as would chunks of tofu.

PORCINI MUSHROOM AND BARLEY SOUP

Porcini are dried Italian mushrooms that are especially flavorful and well-suited to making soup. A handful of barley gives this soup plenty of heft.

BLACK BEAN SOUP WITH CUMIN, CHILES, AND LIME

Jalapeños, chili powder, ground cumin, and fresh squeezed lime juice enliven this spicy Mexican classic. If you like, omit the beer and increase the water to 2 1/2 cups. Use three 19 –ounce cans of black beans, drained and rinsed, or soak and cook 2 1/2 cups (1 pound) of dried black beans. If you like your food less spicy, seed the jalapeño before chopping it.

SPLIT PEA SOUP WITH CARROTS, LEEKS, AND TARRAGON

A combination of herbs- fresh parsley, anise-flavored dried tarragon, and a dried bay leaf- flavors this split soup that is enriched with carrots and leeks.
