little treats

my family likes food. i like food. i wanted to make some nice little foods i could package and freeze to give my family so they could defrost and eat for lunch or whatever at their convenience.

so this is what i made them:

lentil hand pies - whole wheat crust around roasted sweet potato, lentils and kale, and caramelized onions. eat hot or at room temperature.defrost and heat either in oven or microwave. vegetarian.

macaroni and cheese - creamy mac and cheese made with four kinds of cheese, along with onions. includes dairy.

artichocke barigoule - artichokes in broth with vegetables. sunny and light flavor. eat by itself or serve over fish or pasta or whatever you like.  i like mine over angel hair with grated parmesan cheese. vegan.

risotto style pasta - pasta cooked risotto style with carrots and onions. includes dairy (butter).

wild mushroom risotto with caramelized onions - dark and rich risotto cooked in vegetable broth with four kinds of mushrooms topped with caramelized onions. includes dairy (butter).

apple butter - made from feral apples and vermont cider.

vegan thumbprint cookies - mostly toasted almonds and oats held together with some whole wheat flour. lightly sweetened with maple syrup. nutritious and vegan.

cheese crackers - two flavors of cheese cracker: parmesan and mozzarella, and sharp cheddar. includes dairy.

clementine sherbet - mostly just fresh squeezed clementine juice combined with cream. includes a small amount of gelatin.

hot chocolate ice cream - a dark and rich spiced chocolate ice cream. includes egg yolks.

cream caramels - classics. includes dairy.

honeycomb candy - delicate and crunchy.

for my sister i also cured a half pound of salt lox, and my brother-in-law got a selection of jams.

and for the record, "wild mushroom risotto" means "wild mushroom risotto" and not, as at some restaurants "any kind of mushroom that isn't white button mushrooms", because let's face it, crimini and shiitake are not especially wild.
