Hey, folks! I know there are a bunch of you following me who seem to be interested in my recipe posts (because you click the “like” button). I’m currently working out a schedule for things I want to make for the fall and winter, and there are some empty spaces. Go have a look at my Recipe Pointers pages and let me know in comments here if there’s anything you’d be interested in seeing. (Not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged game pieces. The decisions of the judges are final. Void where prohibited.)
I’ll be sticking primarily to things that are (a) practical for a single guy to make, (b) under 500 calories per serving, and (c) don’t require exotic ingredients that I’ll be stuck with for a long time. Some exceptions may be made for special occasions, and at least two more cookbooks’ worth of Recipe Pointers are in the queue. I have seven weekends open for the rest of the year, and will probably fit five recipes in, possibly more depending on the sweet/savory balance, cost, and overall level of effort required. The first open weekend is October 4–5, so you’ve got some time to get your requests in!

Faubourg Pavé” (p. 17) – Dorie Greenspan, Chocolate Desserts by Pierre Hermé (Little, Brown, 2001; ISBN 0-316-35741-3)
Something that may have nutrative value & sounds interesting (though Jay may implode):
“Moroccan Stuffed Tomatoes” (p. 225) – Elaine Louie, The Occasional Vegetarian (Hyperion, 2011; ISBN 978-1-4013-1036-3). Based on the author’s New York Times column, with all (good and bad) that implies.
See told you I was thinking about it.
