Crêpes, Stuffed Manicotti-Style: June 11, 2013
Where to put this recipe? I made this version vegetarian, though the original called for a meat sauce; and in place of pasta tubes, we’re using crêpes, those lovely, thin French pancakes. *sigh* Just resign yourself to finding this, praticular recipe in just about every section of this here table o’ frikkin’ contents. We strive for nothing if not overkill.

Pretty darned spiffy for burgers, if you ask me.

Savory Shortcrust Pastry: June 12, 2012
Another take on Pie Crust, but tailored for savory fillings, and well suited to filling, rolling, and then baking the slices. Just trust me, and step away from the anchovies.

Stuffing Balls: January 21, 2016
The original recipe called for making these tasty balls o’ seasoned bread and stuff in 1/2 cup servings. That was a lot of stuffing ball; so next time, I plan on cutting back to a 1/4 measure – or mebbe even go mini with a one tablespoon scoop to make appetizer stuffing balls.

Tamale Casserole: June 3, 2021
