Coffee Crème Brûlée

This coffee crème brûlée from David Lebovitz comes together almost effortlessly from coffee, cream, sugar, eggs, and liqueur in the traditional Paris way, which is to say, it leans toward more caramel and less cream. What results is reminiscent of Vietnamese coffee in the best possible way.

leitesculinaria.com: Leg of Lamb with Moroccan Spices

«This leg of lamb recipe can be your savior on those evenings when you’ve got a bunch of strangers around the table and the mood feels as lighthearted as a dentist’s waiting room. Serve up the dish Moroccan style, with its bowls of table herbs and spices, and a plate of lettuce leaves. The idea is that everyone has permission to eat with their fingers and try the lamb with different combinations of spices, fresh herbs, pan sauce, and even honey all rolled up in the lettuce. Conversations can’t help but take off.

Start the leg of lamb a day before by marinating it. Start the oven the day of about 2 1/2 hours before you want to sit down to dinner, as the lamb takes a total of 1 1/2 to 2 hours to cook and needs to rest before serving.»

Eggless pancakes


So. One of the kids needed to be egg-free for a while. Swedish pancakes are a necessity though so we had to figure out how to make a good version. These are just as good as "regular pancakes", but can be a little harder to flip. I'm sorry - no great pic - but the recipe is worth saving.

Eggless pancakes
serves 2-3

200 ml flour Pinch of salt Pinch of sugar 1 tbsp corn starch 3 tbsp oil 375 ml milk

Stir together all the dry ingredients, add oil and milk. Fry in butter until starting to turn golden at the edges, flip and cook through.
