sharing a recipe or two

These are jello hearts, actually Valentines Jello Hearts, and they are chillin’ in the fridge tonight. You can find the recipe here. I think they will be fun to make with different shapes, different colors.  

My latest copy of Oprah Winfrey’s Magazine has this apple crisp recipe that is amazing.  You will want to read about the person who created the recipe because her story is powerful. Molly Birnbaum is featured in the magazine article as well as here.  If you scroll down at the end of the online article you’ll find a link to the apple crisp recipe.

Yesterday I shared an image of a spice mix, but am unable to find the exact recipe online. It is from the Better Homes and Gardens “Food Gifts” magazine for 2011.  The recipe is for Mediterranean Salt & Herb Rub.  If you search for that, you will find a gazillion different varieties of this mix.  Here is the one I made:

Ingredients:
1 & 1/3 cup coarse sea salt or kosher salt
2/3 cup dried parsley
1/4 cup dried thyme
1/4 cup dried rosemary
1/4 cup coarsely ground black pepper
1/4 cup dried shredded lemon peel
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons dried minced onion, finely crushed

Mix this all together. It makes about 4 cups.  I divided it up into little jelly jars.

To use: lightly brush lean pork, leg of lamb or lamb chops, chicken, or fish with olive oil. Sprinkle with some of the spice mixture 9use 2 or 3 teaspoons per pound of meat); rub in with your fingers. Let stand for 15 minutes. Cook as desired.

Very very yummy…
