• ...and other tasty treats!

    Feminist bible scholar by day...chef extraordinaire by night. Here are some of my favorite recipes for your enjoyment: savory enough to tempt your brother, sister, significant other, friend, or enemy into despising their birthright:

    "Once when Jacob was cooking a stew, Esau came in from the field, and he was famished. Esau said to Jacob, "Let me eat some of that red stuff, for I am famished!" Jacob said, "First sell me your birthright." Esau said, "I am about to die; of what use is a birthright to me?" Jacob said, "Swear to me first." So he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob. Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew, and he ate and drank, and rose and went his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright." (Genesis 25:29-34)

Lemon-Ginger Veg Soup

This soup is both light and hearty, and it was a great soup to make at the end of summer moving into the fall. With the kale and root vegetables, it is an ideal winter soup, but the tangy lemon and ginger spice invokes a certain sense reminiscent of summer. Advertisements

Enochic Apple Pie

Many apologies for the long delay: I’ve moved and started a doctoral program, and things have definitely been hectic. I finally took a study break this week to get back in the kitchen, and in honor of the text from which I delayed reading, I’m naming this apple pie after the apocalyptic 1 Enoch.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcakes

Certainly not a light dessert, these light white cupcakes contain a cookie bite in their center and are topped with a browned butter icing and a cooked cookie for decor. As heavy as they sound, it’s hard to limit consumption to just one!

Avocado Deviled Eggs

Make sure you sample one or two first: these no mayo deviled eggs disappear as soon as you put them out! They have all the delightful texture of deviled eggs without the mayonnaise flavor, and the avocado taste is a wonderful bonus.

Rosemary Cornbread

The addition of fresh rosemary makes this light and buttery¬†cornbread a savory treat at a cookout, but it also crumbles well as a side with Jacob’s Stew. The coarse salt added to the top prior to baking is a fantastic flavor enhancer.
