Cooking With Huckleberry Book Week 2

I’ve been a very busy cooking bee, happily cooking my way through the Huckleberry Cookbook.  I’m also testing out crusts for the KCRW 6th annual pie contest in October, so there’s been a lot of good food happening here.  Here’s what this week brought us:

Muesli.  Made with a boatload of raw whole grains that were soaked overnight with dried fruit in whole milk and yogurt.

“My Dad’s Pancakes”.  These were made with whole milk, flour, egg yolk, and beaten egg white (last step before frying).

Quinoa and Eggs with Sprouting Broccoli.  Healthy, hearty and packed with superfoods!

Avocado Toast.  Zoe’s take on the very au courant phenomenon of avocado toast adds an anchovy dressing, that I added butter to and turned into a sort of “bagna cauda,” and drenched my toast in.  Whoa was this ever an epic lunch.

“Green Eggs and Ham.”  Sunny side eggs on english muffin with proscuitto, pesto and arugula.

Beer Braised Pork (this one’s still in fridge soaking up sauce and waiting to be finished  . . . stay tuned!).  Ridiculously easy to make and made my house smell like an umami porcine palace.  I plan to serve it to Patty and Sofia who are visiting me here in Los Angeles tonight!!

  11. Sue, again, thank you so much for the book. Going to watch her bake and receiving the book, and seeing Huckleberry itself makes such great memories. Now I know exactly what these dishes you’ve been making are about (yum!!). I was reading the book on the plane on my way to NY, it’s really great, very educational and so funny at the same time. Have to try the green eggs! xxx
