Homemade Tagliatelle For Dinner

We made a large batch of pasta a while ago and stored the extra in the freezer. Once thawed and brought to room temperature, it was easily rolled and cut. A couple of minutes in the pot and it was ready to eat. Quite nice.

Lentils With Rice, Leeks, and Spinach via Epicurious

Based on a Middle Eastern mujaddara, a homey mix of spiced simmered lentils and rice, this easy, meatless dish is rich with allspice, cinnamon, and sweet browned leeks. The handful of baby spinach stirred in toward the end turns it into a one-pot meal, and adds a bit of welcome color, too. If you don’t have leeks, use an onion or two instead.

PREFACE

This little book is the result of careful practice in teaching beginners how to make attractive, wholesome, and palatable varieties of home-made candies. As a rule, these are made from uncooked sugar and white of egg, and, while they may be palatable to some persons, to the connoisseur they are coarse and heavy.

The aim has been to meet the wants of the masses, who, from various causes, cannot obtain the best con- fections, and must eat the sugary “French Mixtures,” or deny themselves the pleasure of an occasional sugar plum.

The excellency of the recipes consists in their simplicity and faithfulness to minutiae. Homely repeti- tion makes them more valuable to those who are totally ignorant of the vagaries of sugar.

Practice is everything. If you fail at first, try again. A few of these failures will teach you more than all the directions I can possibly put on paper.

PREFACE.

IN no other land has the baking and consumption of bake-stuffs grown to such an extent as it has within the past few years in this country. Even in the household of the most humble workman, as in the mansion of the rich and prosperous merchant, the American cook and housewife is generally more praised and esteemed for her good bread, pastry and desserts, than for meat cooking. In looking over the numerous cook books that are now placed so freely before the public, the inexperienced can find no way of learning how or why the recipes read as they do. Before any success in baking can be expected, the cook, baker or housewife must be educated to all the particulars of the materials they are about to use.

It is the main object of this work to show in plain language all who are interested how to become successful in baking; the theories of how to put together and how to change recipes, when the same grades or brands of materials are not on hand. Judgment and common sense must be displayed to insure success. Did you ever hear a woman say, “I had good luck to-day with my cakes,” but alas, the next time, “Oh, I had such bad luck with my baking”? There it is; one day good luck, the next time ashamed to show the result of her labor, and all the good materials wasted. It is the lack of theoretical knowledge about baking that brings the bad luck, and many a professional baker is not able to explain the real cause of the mishap. The theories herein laid out plainly before the reader are all the result of careful, practical experiments, and are based upon accomplished facts. Being confident of the success of my efforts in demonstrating some new and practical points to all interested in baking, and wishing to prepare delicious desserts, I shall herewith give my recipes in several parts, each part treating upon a different branch in the art of baking.
