Almost the whole spice cabinet goes into this Ethiopian recipe, perfect for jazzing up anything on the menu (I love it on cauliflower and potatoes!).

This year's mincemeat - I made 2 1/2 litres of it this morning, letting it simmer away for a good 3 hours or so before canning it for Christmas baking! This season's incarnation used both green tomatoes (like my winning mincemeat recipe) and rhubarb, along with fresh apples, honey, molasses and a hefty dose of rum. Hey, you can't go wrong with booze, right??

I finally get to make Christmas cookies with my son this year. Here's an egg-free version - which is kind of a cross between a sugar cookie and a butter cookie I guess. Either way, it's delicious.

 

I tried a glace icing recipe from Our Best Bites to decorate these cookies instead of royal icing. Afterwards I painted them with food coloring.

 

Please visit my blog for the recipe.

Even the gaping hole! I know there are ways upon ways of preventing the "pie dome", but you know what?? we don't add anything to our apple pies but a teensy sprinkle of cinnamon! Not even sugar - and we've always had it like that!

On the way to our weeky Bible study potluck, I took a photo of the cupcakes Annalie and I had made for dessert because they're on the red tray that my friend Erin gave us for Christmas a couple of years ago. I'd been meaning to tell her that I use the tray all the time and love it, so while I was thinking of it I snapped a shot and emailed it to her from my phone.

 

Since a couple of people in our Bible study have allergies, these cupcakes were made with this dairy-, egg-, and nut-free recipe. I didn't have any non-dairy margarine on hand so I just made the icing with 3 c. powdered sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a couple of gradually-added tablespoons each of water and lemon juice till it was of spreading consistency. Despite being egg- and dairy-free, these cupcakes were really yummy!

I don't have an Italian grandmother. If anything, I come from Irish / Scottish / English stock (with a few rogues thrown in there). But I do like my marinara, and I like it to be made right. Mom's old wooden spoon included.

 

I adore roasted tomatoes, in everything from salads and pizza to soups and sauces like this garlicky delight! Roasting concentrated the sweetness of my homegrown heirloom tomatoes, hot and sweet peppers, and carrots. It also really upped the richness and caramelly, buttery note of the (13 cloves of) garlic and a Vidalia onion. Pureed and canned (after an obligatory 10 1 bowl of pasta), it is a delight for the long winter ahead!

Now I just have to figure out what to do with batch #2...

I used some of the leftover mincemeat and pie dough from my apple-mince pie to make this mini-pie for Andrew, who helped me out a TON with this year's baking!

Who doesn't appreciate a tasty, sweet-and-savoury jam now and then? I blended a bunch of recipes I had from books and blogs and came up with a delicious mix of dark brown sugar, chili flakes, pineapple sage, lime, ginger and cinnamon that the tomatoes cooked in until they were a rich, thick, caramelly mass. Now I just have to figure out what to do with batch #2of those tomatoes...

One of the 4 pies I made for my wonderful professor and friend - delicious and (as always) without sugar!

Happy holidays, everyone!

 

A layer of crisp, tart apple slices lines the bottom of this mincemeat pie, made with my vegan, home-made green tomato mincemeat and a part-buckwheat crust. It'll be a welcome addition to this year's Christmas dinner!
