Miso Lime Noodles

I made these for a side for July 4. Colorful and refreshing, though I wasn’t totally wowed (the miso clumps a bit). I did like how adaptable the recipe was.

Butter Tofu

Excellent meatless Monday meal (went great with naan, too). Would totally make this again. I think I slightly overdid the turmeric.

Herbed Garlic Butter Naan

This is one of the best things I’ve made lately. Note that the dough is quite sticky to work with. I also made pseudo-gyros with the leftover breads which were pretty delicious.

Levain-Style Chocolate Chip Cookies

These giant cookies are pretty epic and turned out really well. Note that they’re a serious caloric investment, hehe. I was short some chocolate chips, which led to the recipe only yielding seven 8 oz cookies.

Dry Fried Eggplant

This is a dish we really love from Peter Chang. Our homemade version didn’t quite live up to the original (I missed the optional second fry step and made another error, so I’d try this again) but was a fun way to use up some eggplant.

Sambal Noodles

This recipe made it through my virtual cooking group. I would say we liked but didn’t love it (we did really like the noodles reheated in broth as “ramen” for leftovers) – I do think I should have rinsed my noodles a bit more before coating in sauce. I omitted the pork and topped with some fried tofu (didn’t realize until after the fact that there’s a veg adaptation with crumbled tofu), but I’ll include the original recipe here. Pictured with dry fried eggplant (recipe to follow).

Shrimp and Crab Et Touffe

Excellent way to use up leftover crab we had from getting crabs this weekend. I halved the recipe when I made it.

Bolognese

I tried the Smitten Kitchen bolognese recipe. I thought it turned out a little greasy, but John loved it.

Parker House Rolls

These were so good! I need to work on my shaping game a little bit, but I loved how these turned out.
