Fall Recipes

I love getting an email from someone who has just read the blog. It motivates me to keep updating. I'm sure the novelty of the website will wear off in a month, but I hope to keep it going for at least a year. Thanks so much to all of you for being so kind. I'm sure the minutia of our lives isn't very compelling reading but your interest and response mean so much.

A friend just pointed out I hadn't posted a Friday Favorite this week or last. I was so excited about surprising some children in the Republic of Georgia with little bags of goodies, that I completely forgot. If you haven't read that post, please scroll down or click on "A Time To Give" under recent posts. I hope a lot of people will participate, because that means a lot of kids will receive a much needed surprise.

I'm just giving links to recipes today. I love a good recipe, especially when a friend offers it so I know it works. These are three fall favorites:

No Knead Bread, adapted from Jim Lahey, appeared in the NYT's last year, and since then, has popped up everywhere. For good reasons--it's yummy and very easy.  One note: you need to start it the day before you want to serve it. While it doesn't take much time to make, it does take time to rise. The dough is very sticky, which shouldn't be a problem since you don't knead it, but you will have some very messy dishtowels. Lastly, if you don't want a flat bread, be sure the pot you cook it in is small enough. Oh, and I have burned myself (and my sister Elizabeth I think) while making this---which says more about me than the recipe, but watch out when pre-heating the pot.


Pioneer Woman may be the funniest woman on the internet. And her recipes aren't bad, although they are tend to be very butter-happy. These, which she eloquently calls Jalapeno Bacon thingies, are also super simple.


Finally, the greatest fall soup. Seriously, so good. It's called Chililicious, but it is really more like a tortilla soup than chili. Another funny woman, Cathy Z, posted it last spring, and I liked it so much, my family had to eat soup in the summer. If I knew how to link directly to the recipe, you could skip  all the scrapbooking stuff on that post, (though I can't understand why you'd want to), but at the end of the post she has a pdf you can download.

I'm sure it would work just as well with left-over turkey next week. Enjoy!
