recipes with herbs and cress
I have finally got my computer up and running again having had a nasty virus (the computer, not me, thank goodness) - so here are a couple of recipes I tried using some fresh herbs from the garden. The weather has been very mild this Winter (so far, knock on wood) - temperatures around 9 during the day! we are still gathering lettuces, beets, kale and chard, all of which have sweetened up nicely from a frost. rye bread with purple kale cream cheese and cress from the garden. Here's the bread recipe I used: http://www.essortment.com/all/germanryebread_rtye.htm the bread went well with the candied salmon a friend had given us, and a good, cold German beer. stuffed mushrooms with parsley from the garden ~ these are your basic garlic butter baked mushrooms, with a little herbed cream cheese and parmesan on top. I really just wanted to make fresh bread crumbs with my new food processor! Happy New Year! may your 2010 be filled with many wonderful garden adventures!
