I've never been a fan of summer pudding. In fact this photo makes it look good by omitting most of the bread. I ate it once in a good restaurant, and I didn't like it.

What I do like is lean rice pudding - milk, sugar, rice, with a nutmeg crust. To hell with rice pudding that is full of butter and cream and fruit and more butter.

I bet the goat cheese recipe would be good with one of those semi-soft, salty Mexican cheeses too. (I am not really up on my names of Mexican cheese. Cotija maybe?)
Or Schloss, a salty soft ripening cheese - I think it's base is the same as brie. It goes really well straight on crackers/baguette with a good beer. As a goat cheese substitute, I think it would do very well too! And of course, this means a romantic trip to the Marin French Cheese (formerly Rouge et Noir) factory in Marin County.

In terms of "summer recipes", this is a good outing. They have a picnic table near a lake with ducks wandering around begging for tidbits. I think I'll make up some of the recipes listed in this thread, head to the cheese factory, get some schloss and a baguette, and have a pleasant outdoor lunch with my sweetie.

I can see you like food to. I will try the almonds. Food is a good thing, one does not have to ask what it is good for, it is recycled in glance and there are always potential clients around for it.

You may want to try out this summer starter: 4-5 persons

8 ripe figs, I like the dark ones, but the green works fine
200 gr. of white cured goat cheese ( just take what you can buy in your place, the rather salty cured stuff -not hard cheese- works best)
Pumpkin jam
4 walnuts

Cut the goat cheese in appropriate pieces of about 1 ½ square inches, and place half a fig on top of it. You can peal the figs if you want, but this is not necessary. Put a spoon full of pumpkin jam on top of the fig and place a quarter of a walnut on top of it. Then place about 3 pieces per person on a plate and serve as a starter. You can use them also on a buffet of course..

Thank you again for this delicious recipe! I fixed a variation of it last night for a party....didn't have figs, so I substituted "Nut Thins" crackers, goat cheese, walnuts, fig preserves and peach & apricot jam. It was very good, and I received a lot of compliments

Lovely thread! A good friend taught me this simple salad - avocado, diced cucumber, some finely chopped red onion, and diced tomato (make sure they have good flavour). Sprinkle some dried oregano, dress with olive oil and red wine or balsamic vinegar. Nice contrast of textures and flavours; the red onion/tomato and avocado/vinegar with cool cucumber.

I guess I need breakfast 😀

Hugh F-W's Three Good Things has a recipe for a salad of cucumber, orange and strawberrries. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm very tempted.

Hi, I am glad you like it. I had it also from a friend in the Algarve who used to make these as a starter. You can make a lot of variations of it and I am sure yours worked fine!

Must work fine. I used to go to a place where they make a fennel/apple/orange salad with raisins and I love it

Kitchen is an unlimited creativity space and I absolutly love advocado dishes. I use to make a kind of guacamole but I mix the advocado with youghurt or white cheese and olive oil and spices and salt and put it into the mixer. Ideal to eat with cooked potatoes. Some make sweet advocado mousse which I don't like at all. The good thing with food is that it is recycled pretty imediately, you don't need to ask what it is good for, and there are always new possible "clients" around who don't complain either

Due to the fine weather we've been having in London lately (and to celebrate the Royal Wedding) my wife decided to have a barbecue. Seabass brushed in butter, burgers and salad. Delicious.

So here we go:

This is a simple but delicious recipe for a fast dessert. Even better, it is gluten-free :lol:

It is called "indecent proposal"

You need: a big tin of mango puree (850gr)and mix it with 1 kg of Greek yogurt and add a tin of condensed milk 450 gr. and a bit of cardamom in powder and a bit of curcuma (turmeric) in powder, and a bit of ginger in powder if you want. Mix all well and add in the end 200 gr of whipped cream and cool it in the fridge. This will serve about 12-15 person

Interesting taste with the mango and the spices but not low in calories. You can make low calorie versions of it using soft white cheese, and other ingredients for sweetening and lubrification as you prefere

I know it's not summer anymore, but I thought of this thread when I was fixing this last night, to take to a party.
About 20- 30 ginger snaps
A package of lemon jello. (gelatin....not pudding)
Whipped cream cheese
Frozen dairy topping (Cool Whip)
Mandarin orange slices
Double ended toothpicks

Fix the Jello, and before it sets up, whip in about equal quantities of cream cheese and Cool whip.
Line a large flat pan (cookie sheet) with plastic wrap and pour mixture onto it.....about 1/4" thick.
Chill until the mixture stiffens.
When you're ready to assemble, place ginger snaps on a serving tray.
Drain the juice from the Mandarin orange slices.
Flip the pan with the jello & cream cheese over onto a sheet of wax paper and lift the pan off....peel off the plastic wrap.
Place "slices" of the mix onto each ginger snap, and top with a slice of Mandarin orange, and stick a toothpick thru the slice of orange and into the jello mixture, to keep the slice of orange from sliding off.

Pour about 3 fingers of a single malt scotch into a whiskey glass.
No ice, no soda, no nothin'. Neat.
Enjoy.
