TWD – Tuesdays with Dorie

Make-Up Day

The beginning of 2013 was a bit crazy for me, so I have quite a bit of make-up to do.  There were some recipes I made, but didn’t get a post up in time.  Here are 5 of the missed recipes, with a brief over view.  I still have 6 more recipes to go before I am fully caught up.

Black Beans with Onions and Andouille Sausage

This bean and sausage dish is a great pantry meal and quick and easy to pull together.  Plus, the leftovers are even better.  Keep sausages in the freezer for quick weeknight dinners.  Just defrost for a minute or two in the microwave before cooking.

Steamed Vegetable Salad with Lemon Sesame Dressing

This steamed vegetable salad is a light, refreshing, and healthy meal.  Plus, it’s a quick and easy week night dinner.  If you cannot find different colored carrots, of course you can use all orange.  I just like the variety of colors.  Serve warm or cold, with a side of wheat berries, quinoa or slice roast chicken.  Leftovers make a great lunch the next day.

Challah

This was my first time making challah.  This particular recipe was a lot like making brioche dough, but with a bit less egg.  Although, this challah dough was a bit stiffer than the brioche dough I’ve made previously.
