Shinae Choi Robinson879,680HOW COOKALONGS WORK:http://ridiculoushungry.blogspot.com/p/cookalongs.htmlHey, Cookalong Peeps!Since we voted overwhelmingly for African cuisine for this Cookalong, African it is!As you can imagine, with Africa being vast as it is, we are really just getting our feet wet with this month’s recipes, but I’ve tried to come up with two separate balanced menus, and choose solid recipes that appeal to a wide range of palates, for you to cook from. Both meals are totally adaptable to make with or without meat.I think you’ll find the ingredients fairly accessible and inexpensive for the most part, but if you have any questions as to substitutions, I am happy to call upon the collective wisdom of our foodnik community to help you find a solution.As always, if you'd like to share an African dish in the event that's not on the menu, please include a description of the dish in the comments under your photo. If you can provide a recipe, even better. :)So with no further ado:SUGGESTED MENU 1- AFRICAN GROUNDNUT (PEANUT STEW (maafe/maffé) - I’ll link to both a chicken and a vegetarian recipe. If you prefer seafood, that’s an easy substitution, but you would add the protein MUCH later in the cooking process.Recipes:https://plus.google.com/u/0/105466596306740968847/posts/8hHzsrrbwbM- PLAIN STEAMED LONG GRAIN OR JOLLOF RICE WITHOUT ADDITIONAL PROTEIN (West African rice pilaf)Jollof Recipe: http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/03/28/recipe-for-jollof-rice-t_n_2972442.html- YE'ABESHA GOMEN (Ethiopian Collard Greens)Recipe: http://www.saveur.com/article/Recipes/Yeabesha-Gomen-Ethiopian-Collard-Greens- BANANA FRITTERS (which I think will go beautifully with a little vanilla bean ice cream and a drizzle of honey)Recipe: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Banana-Fritters-104781SUGGESTED MENU 2- CHICKEN OR VEGETABLE TAGINE (if you don’t have a tagine, that’s fine - you can just use a Dutch oven or stockpot).Recipes: https://plus.google.com/u/0/105466596306740968847/posts/DtwL9aNRqrU- BASIC COUSCOUS (You might like to add toasted nuts such as African Food Cookalong2013-04-21 09:00:0047

Chef Dennis Littley634,701Join me as we learn to make Cannoli's!  I might even have a few extra tips on how to make them even more festive, so you better not miss my #Holidayhangout  !Cannoli Cream1 cup marscapone1 cup ricotta cheese1/3 cup super fine sugar1 tbsp lime zest (lemon or orange is ok)1 tsp pure vanilla extract1/2  cup bitter sweet chocolate (chopped into small bits, or use mini chocolate chips)12 large cannoli shells1.  Drain ricotta very very well, it must be extremely dry, if possible make your own ricotta. 2.  Mix ricotta and mascarpone together until blended, do not overmix3.  Add in superfine sugar, lime zest, vanilla, and mix until blended.4.  Add in chocolate and stir to blend5.  Place cream mixture into refrigerator until ready to use6.  Place cannoli cream into pastry bag (or ziplock bag with end snipped off) and pipe into cannoli shells.The secret to keeping your cannoli filling thick and not having it get watery is using  Superfine Sugar,  Most recipes will call for confectioners sugar, but an old Italian Grandmother told me her secret, and it works!  If you can’t find Superfine (aka Bar Sugar) you can always pulse your regular sugar in your food processor for a bit, just don’t pulse too much or you’ll end up with 10x.#Holidayhangout   #holidayhangout   #italianpastry  Holiday Hangout - Let's Make Cannoli's2012-12-21 00:00:0034

Brian Buckley57,655Sharing My Sept 29 Engagers ShowcaseHappy Monday everyone. How about a Monday morning circle share?This is my Engagers Showcase Circle - a group of people who I interact with regularly, or who have engaged with me by commenting on one or more of my posts. This is my way of thanking all of these folks. They are largely responsible for the enjoyment I get from Google+.If you received a notification you are in the circle.The Showcase part means that I am encouraging anyone who is a member of this circle to share a link to favorite post of their own in the comment section. We always have a lot of fun with that and learn more about each other, especially the newer members of the circle.I have gone back to a smaller circle this time after experimenting with some larger ones the last few times out. For a few weeks I was trying some larger circles. It really did not increase engagement, so I have sharpened my pencil again. the hardest thing for me to do is exclude someone, but because your inclusion in the circle isd a recommendation by me I have to be tough ;)Enjoy meeting the new people that you meet in this circle, and yes there are some new faces. Have a great week. #engagementshowcase   #engagementshowcasecircle   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircleoftheday  2014-09-29 16:05:402011493284

Ian Archibald30,884A Circle of Major SharersGood Morning.  Today (September 20) is my birthday, so I decided to change things up a bit and give you a present!  In the past, this share has taken me hours to curate, because I was investigating 100's of circle shares, 1000's of posts, and seeing who was sharing and giving the post some love.Nonetheless, this share contains people who are simply awesome. They are great sharers, contributors and engagers.  Having taken a peak over the past year - these people are enjoying great success. There are a handful of new people to Google+ that I have also included - hoping to get them some additional exposure.I have no rules pertaining to this share, other than to be considerate of others.  I will encourage you to add it, though you would be losing out on connecting with some great people if you didn't. I hope you all have a wonderful day today!May All Your Successes Be MajorIan AKA "Major Twister" 2014-09-20 14:57:00177522654

Ian Archibald19,730People I Learn FromWe all have people we like to learn from, who we might look up to to act as a mentor and people we connect with.  This share is people who meet these criteria for me.I haven't crafted any circle shares of late, and those who remember the shares that I created during Christmas took a lot of effort - sorting through 100's of posts, locating the top people/posts/engagement, etc.  The last significant one I did took me over 7 hours to produce.  I really enjoy creating them, but alas I don't have that much time.Who's in this circle?A lot of people you likely know and may already have circled. There are educators, scientists, speakers, developers, SEO Experts and just plain awesome people.I know many people like to add rules to their circle shares. Personally, I don't. There are many reasons for this, but let's just say, I don't like spam and the countless BS Community requests that surely follow. In short, don't blindly add people just for the sake of doing so.How Can I Get Into This Circle?I don't add people blindly.  Each person in this list has been vetted. If there needs to be some rules to end up here...• Be active - No activity = no circle.• Create Quality Content - I want to hear what you have to say• Be Original - Be Awesome• Engage with people. If you're not being seen, who will find you?Hope you all have a great week!2014-03-31 01:02:36186182123

Why Google+ is the place for passions

The single biggest controversy about social media, and one that has persisted for two or three years now without resolution, is whether Google+ is a dying wasteland of non-activity, or a hive of conversation and engagement.

It can't be both. So which is it? And why can't this fundamental question be answered?

I believe I have the key to the puzzle, and I'll attempt to solve it once and for all.

Here what the Twitter people and the Facebook people don't understand about the Google+ people:

Cane sugar free, egg-free, dairy-free (and #glutenfree ) wedding cake on the roster today

Vanilla cake layers, with honey sweetened strawberry jam and rustic honey "buttercream" ribbons.  The cake was going to be decorated further with flowers matching the bride's bouquet.

Pork cutlets for dinner

because we needed to rotate out our freezer stock of $1 pork chops ... and because comfort food seemed in order.

Method for these is to pound them out to an even thickness, and then dredge in 1. egg wash 2. seasoned #glutenfree  flour 3. egg wash 4. seasoned crushed gluten-free rice crispies.

"Criminals cannot and will not dictate to us how we act as a nation, how we govern ourselves or how we treat each other."

Three leaders, three speeches in the wake of today's attack in Ottawa ... only one of them comes across as the words of a true leader.  Harper's words sound almost adversarial, which I find coincidental given government was poised to introduce new anti-terrorism legislation with some troubling civil liberties implications. 

So much opining and positioning on social media today, as people jostle to hitch their wagons to the media coverage following this.  I've had the radio on most of the day, and at this point, I've hit my saturation point for the day.  I do think though that Justin Trudeau's words are some of the better things to come out of this day.

Bleak news out of Ottawa this morning with guys with guns running around shooting people at the War Memorial and in Centre Block on Parliament Hill.  

Meanwhile, there's donuts in the kitchen today.  In the midst of the chaotic news, there's something quiet and meditative about rolling out and cutting donuts, and listening to the bubbling oil as they fry. Food is a big part of what ails us as a civilization, but food can also be healing stuff. 

The fact is, you can only control the things you can control! Take some time out today to do something within your control - connect with the ones you love, over a donut, or whatever's your fancy.

Here's the lineup from last night's dinner that I managed to get pictures of.

Caramelized onion, slow roast tomato + goat feta tartines; Falafel with cilantro pesto; and crudite with butternut squash hummus to start.
Baked salmon with roasted red pepper relish; quinoa taboulleh; Roasted beet salad with Oranges, Black olives & mint; and Warm cauliflower salad for the main event, birthday cake for dessert.

Menu was gluten-free, with no cows milk, tree nuts or soy

Leftover quinoa taboulleh with some goat feta sprinkles = lunch.

This (without the feta) was one of the dishes from last nights #catering  dinner.  Recipe in the link: with a few modifications ... we just tossed everything together and chopped the cilantro with the other herbs rather than make a pesto, and diced cucumber rather than fennel.  The coconut milk takes the place of olive oil, and blends into the background https://plus.google.com/+JaniceMansfield/posts/cvAka3HvTJH

An unfortunate policy to hit the headlines in the wake of Microsoft's CEO's comments about women not asking for raises but rather relying on "karma" to reward their efforts.

Some interpret this as a signal that women's issues are being taken more seriously in the workplace.  I see this rather as a signal to women that our single greatest worth as persons is our reproductive capabilities, rather than our minds.  Yes, we've come a long way since the days we were not considered persons under the law, but there's still a long way to go!

Fall means we break out the pressure cooker a couple of times a week

Beef stew tonight, prepared with about 2 lbs of marked down blade steaks.  I find that often pre-cut stew meat can be quite lean and cook up tough, so I often use chuck roast, or finger meat and cut my own stew meat.  With more connective tissue and fat, it makes for a more tender, and more flavourful stew in the end IMO.  Tonight's stew included mushrooms, a dollop of tomato paste added early on while deglazing the bottom of the pan, leeks, celery, herbs de provence, bay leaf, turnip, carrots and peas.

Well this is interesting! Blake Lively, or one of her minions, writes (poorly I might add!) about the "Allure of the Antebellum", Gawker opines about it and gets slapped with a cease and desist letter from the Preserve legal team!

who the heck uses phrases like ... with the ease of a hummingbird relishing a pastoral bloom?!  And it didn't occur to anyone on the team that people might take offense at the notion that its easy to ooze "social poise" and hospitality when you've got a squadron of slaves at your bidding.

wording below is ALL theirs ... verbatim

Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese muffins

Just in time for Thanksgiving!

These are actually a little more cakey than muffin-ey, but Jeffrey pronounced them a hit.  I had one out all night to see how they would hold, and it has remained nice and moist and fluffy.  This is also a hasty transcription from my scrawlings on sticky notes, so I decided to put it into a link in case I need to make any edits.

RECIPE is in the link - its in a Google doc so please LMK if you have problems viewing it.

One of the best explanations of how Google+ differs from FB and twitter I've seen yet, thanks to +Mike Elgan 

"They've tried it. The Twitter people come to Google+ looking for Twitter type engagement, but they don't find it. Likewise, the Facebook people come looking for Facebook-like engagement (family and friends) and don't find it.

It's like a Chinese tourist going to France looking for Chinese food and concluding that the food in France is terrible. Or a Hawaiian surfer bringing her surfboard to New York City and, finding no waves, concluding that there's nothing to do in Manhattan."

Why Google+ is the place for passions

The single biggest controversy about social media, and one that has persisted for two or three years now without resolution, is whether Google+ is a dying wasteland of non-activity, or a hive of conversation and engagement.

It can't be both. So which is it? And why can't this fundamental question be answered?

I believe I have the key to the puzzle, and I'll attempt to solve it once and for all.

Here what the Twitter people and the Facebook people don't understand about the Google+ people:

Quick pressure cooker carnitas for dinner tonight.

with salsa, guacamole, lightly pickled red onion, and sauteed peppers on white corn tortillas.  

There's no real recipe for these - you cut boneless pork shoulder into large-ish pieces, season, brown in some oil in the pressure cooker, add a bit of liquid, chipotle if you like, onions if you like, and cook under pressure for 35-45 minutes or so.

If you have the time, you can reduce down the juices, and add the shredded meat back in, giving it a quick pass under the broiler if you like the crispy bits.  Generally when we do carnitas, there's lots left over to do this with.

This mornings baking is a refined sugar-free order. These are spiced pear muffins with some amazingly fragrant Bartlett pears, personal pumpkin pies are in the oven.

Its Thanksgiving weekend up here so people are running around like crazy people preparing for giant turkey dinners. I actually had an elderly fellow accost me wild-eyed, in the supermarket last night demanding to know how to make stuffing from scratch (turns out he told his prospective TGiving dinner date he could cook and was starting to panic). Rest of today is mostly heads-down getting through the list.

What are yall up to today?

What do you have for a Monday that feels like a Thursday? An ounce of so of Merridale Ciderworks Apple Brandy

Apple cake

that started life as +Jules Shepard's apple pudding dessert here http://www.gfjules.com/gluten-free-apple-pudding-dessert-recipe-low-fat/

but got modified to be more cake-like with a bit more oats and one more egg when I realized I had no applesauce on hand. I also used a mix of tapioca starch, potato starch and buckwheat flour, combined with 1 1/2 tsp psyllium husk.

Its lightly sweet, so makes for a great weeknight dinner dessert, or baked for a shorter time on a sheetpan would make a lovely baked pancake for a weekend brunch

Blue plate special

AKA "All the proteinz" aka "All the streaky bacon" (to the tune of All the single ladies)

We haven't had pancakes for a couple of weeks and Jeffrey was looking sufficiently disappointed at the prospect of a pancake-less Sunday morning that I decided to kill 2 birds with one stone.  Try out the last of the #glutenfree  Bisquick as pancakes ... and get pancakes into his hangry maw.  Verdict: it makes up reasonably fluffy pancakes as simply as the regular version, although I did tinker with the egg/milk balance, going scant on the liquid.  It is however, fairly bland in flavour, which is I think more a function of the fact that we normally make things like our pancakes and breads with more flavourful GF grains such as buckwheat, sorghum and millet.

Cane sugar free, egg-free, dairy-free (and #glutenfree ) wedding cake on the roster today

Vanilla cake layers, with honey sweetened strawberry jam and rustic honey "buttercream" ribbons.  The cake was going to be decorated further with flowers matching the bride's bouquet.

Bendy flat bread is bendy

Working on a new gum-free #glutenfree flat bread (that's nice and pliable for wraps!)

Happy #FRYday peeples!

Has it been as long a week for you as it has for me? 2 more days to go here, but we're in the home stretch ... and there's donuts! #glutenfree  old fashioned donuts that are craggy on the outside, fluffeh on the inside :)

Do you think you could survive on a food budget of $3 per day?

The Raise the Rates challenge is happening again in a couple of weeks and +Bif Naked has signed up to help put a spotlight on the issue.

The fact is that 1) people end up needing welfare for all kinds of reasons, including some beyond their control 2) we live in a country that purports to care about its most vulnerable citizens and 3) B.C>'s welfare rates have not changed since 2007 despite significant changes in key prices for things like food, transportation and fuel.

You can read former MLA Jagrup Brar's first person account of his month on welfare in the Downtown East side 2 years ago with approximately $5 per day to spend - also a really interesting interview on CBC's Definitely Not the Opera of his experience.  Since that time, most SROs charge $450 per month rent rather than the$... more »

And before you shake your finger and espouse how easy this would be, bear in mind that most of these folks are starting from scratch - no pantry to rely on, and certainly no buying in bulk, and few, if any cooking facilities at their disposal in the rooming houses.
