Spring Pasta with Ramp Pesto

I made this a couple of weeks go, so I’m having trouble remembering the exact recipe, but it turned out well, so hopefully this will at least make for a good guide.

Ramp Pesto

Good use of ramps! I loosely followed this recipe for inspiration. I used this later in pasta (recipe to follow) and it was delicious.

Parmesan Wedge Salad

I really liked the salad dressing here. It was fine as a wedge, but the dressing was a little scant given that much lettuce.

Cubed Steak, Cuban-Style

Cubed steak was one of my least favorite meals growing up (keep in mind it’s a cheap cut of meat, and my parents didn’t help by grilling it to a char and serving it with my childhood nemesis, ketchup). Regardless, I haven’t really seen it much in the grocery store around here. When I spotted it in the store recently, and saw a recipe blog that I generally like also had a recipe for it, I figured I’d give it a try. I thought this recipe was quite good – John liked the flavors but not really the cut of meat, which I get. Pictured with a parmesan wedge, recipe to follow.

Note: I’ve been traveling, and I’m a few weeks behind on recipe uploading, to the point where I’m having trouble remembering specifics for a couple of made-up recipes. We’ll see how it goes catching up.

Wonton Meatballs

Why yes, I do still make new meatball recipes. I thought these would have a bit more flavor, but my friends liked them well enough, and it’s an interesting recipe.

Kara-age

This has been something I’ve been excited to make for the Japanese food challenge (it’s one of John’s favorite foods). We had a friend coming over who loves fried chicken and avoids gluten – so this recipe using potato starch is great for her. Beyond involving deep frying, this is a pretty easy recipe. From the “Tokyo Cult Recipes” cookbook.

Cucumber Cooler Punch

To go with our Indian feast, I adapted this cocktail recipe into a punch and it was really terrific. There is some estimating here, so keep that in mind.
