Moosehead passed away Monday, 23-Jun-2014, unexpectedly at age 51, RIP Moosey you will be missed by everyone here at RZ!.... Bio to follow --- I I spent most of my adult life on the high cost of living East Coast. But in 2000 I found a little piece of paradise in the Deep South. I'm a professor at a small college in the middle of nowhere, Georgia, US. Low stress, nice climate, easy lifestyle. Winter only really lasts about two months and is never that cold; year-round I have things blooming in my yard. I love flower gardening, especially camellias, asiatic lilies and bearded iris, and I love cooking in my spare time. Married 27 years, no kids (18-year-old college students away from home for the first time are more than enough for my patience level).
I am easily distracted by any recipe involving extra sharp cheddar, cayenne pepper, potatoes, or pecans (I live in a long-abandoned commercial pecan grove with 12 mature, hundred-year-old pecan trees in my yard and often have lots of fresh pecans on the ground - if I can get them before the squirrels and chipmunks do - sometimes in off years I just let the little critters have them - if I were a squirrel, I'd live here too!)
Very good! I added a tad more honey for our tastes. This is very versatile - good not just with salad but as a dip. I did let it marinate a few days in the fridge so all the flavors could blend well. We liked this a lot.
The sauce is incredible! I used mushrooms and onions not peas and carrots, and put toasted sesame seeds on crust before baking. Did half recipe and made two individual pot pies in ramekins. The sauce is absolutely perfect!
Where to begin? How can so few ingredients make something so incredible?! I halved the recipe, using 2 eggs made 8 popovers, and time 30 min, served with raspberry fruit spread. Had trouble stopping myself to take a photo. A real keeper - thanks, dreamer!
Very good - and easy! Served with hickory smoked roasted chicken. I got a little panicky at first and thought I needed more liquid so I added a little chicken boullion. Turned out it wasn't necessary. Thanks, Bea!
