Bananas Foster

Posted by on Aug 11, 2011 in recipe | 0 comments

From Famous Foods from Famous Places (1964), which is filled with pretty much any kind of mid-century fanciness you can think of.

Commander’s Palace (New Orleans) Bananas Foster

This classic is super easy and a great use for that bunch of almost-rotten bananas that’s going to start attracting fruit flies any second.

June 29: Bananas Foster

Slice 6 ripe bananas lengthwise. Brush with lemon juice.

1 c sugar and 1/2 c butter — cook over low heat until dissolved, add bananas, cook awhile til soft.

Serve as is or with ice cream or whipped cream or whatever. You are going to lapse into a sugar coma either way.

Some recipes I like that I was telling J. about at coffee yesterday:

Zucchini Crab Cakes. These are super delicious and EASY and healthy except for being fried, but that just makes them that much more tasty. Serve with Creole-style remoulade [there are a million ways to make this; I mix catsup, mayo, seedy mustard, cayenne, and whatever else to taste].

Beer pizza dough. Chad makes this once a week, he rolls out two doughs and we put our own toppings on. Mine usually has some or all of the following: pesto, mushrooms, artichoke hearts, fresh mozz, parmesan, prosciutto, garlic, olives, oregano and basil, red pepper flakes, whatever else is around. Here are some photos from Tuesday’s batch. Do not view on an empty stomach.

Fish with onions and the delicious bacon spinach

Posted by on Apr 8, 2010 in photo, recipe | 0 comments

A dinner I made last week, everything was quick and easy and delicious.

Fish with onions and the delicious bacon spinach

Bacon spinach

Chop up 4 slices bacon, crisp in tall pot, add in about 1/3 c. shallot or onion, cook til translucent, add 2-3 bags fresh spinach and toss until steamed to taste.

Fish with Onions and Mushrooms
This was super good and easy, recipe from John Ryan

1 slice bacon
1 cup sliced onion
4 ounces mushrooms, sliced
Salt and pepper
1 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 fish fillets (about 6 ounces each)
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 tablespoon butter

Crisp bacon, set aside, then sauté the onion until translucent, add mushrooms. Add salt and pepper to taste. When the mushrooms are almost cooked, add the wine and vinegar then simmer half the wine away.

Lay fish on top, cover, and maintain a steady simmer 5-10 minutes until fish is done. Remove fish to warm platter. Stir butter into pan drippings [this is where i squeezed in half a lemon, but it was overwhelming and I would skip this step next time, or use less] then pour over fish and crumble bacon on top.

This may not be entirely accurate:
Cooked rice in rice cooker with half water, half stock, a smidge of saffron, a handful of pistachios, a drizzel of olive oil, and…some kind of herbs, I don’t remember which. There was no bacon in the rice.
