Recipes

Shallot Yogurt Dip in bowl with crackers

Shallot Yogurt Dip (Mast Moosir)Mast Moosir is a traditional Persian yogurt dip. It uses Persian shallots (moosir), which you can only get in most places outside of Asia in dried form. They're available online and in many international markets, but if you can't get a hold of them, give this a go with minced fresh shallots. You'll love the refreshing bits of crunchiness mingling with the soft and creamy yogurt.

 

cooling Corn Toaster Cakes on wire rack

Corn Toaster CakesThis is a real NY and surrounding area treat that is hard to find nowadays. It costs about $4 for each pack of 4 when you can find them. This recipe makes 12 for a fraction of the price. The muffin top pans can be used for many other things, and will pay for themselves very quickly, as these breakfast cakes are delicious, and you will be making them often!

 

Pancakes on plate

Pancakes with Jarred Baby FruitI got a free jar of baby fruit at the supermarket. With no one to give it to, I did a search and found this recipe. I substituted a stevia brown sugar blend and I used whey instead of milk. Store leftovers with waxed paper between them. Freeze if you wish.

Reusing a Mattress TopperI had a mattress topper, one of the ones that is held on with elastic straps. The elastic stretched out and didn't stay on very well. I took it and cut the straps off. I put a fitted sheet on my mattress upside down then put the topper on it. When I got it set in the right place, I pinned it in place, took it to my sewing machine and stitched them together. Then I sewed it from corner to corner in a big X.

Growing Profusion ZinniasEvery spring I sow tall zinnia seed directly in the ground. Can I do the same thing with Profusion zinnia seeds or do I need to start them inside first and then transplant? I have been buying new Profusion zinnias each year. I would like to save the seeds and try planting them instead of purchasing every year.
