Calling all poets! [21 Jan 2018|01:47pm]

[ mood | amused ]

As many of you know, one of my goals this year is to expand my writing skills and give poetry a try.
To that end, I recently wrote my first haiku and posted it over at [livejournal.com profile] poetic_hp.
Anyway, it occurred to me that we could use a similar com here on DW, and after some discussion, the mods, [personal profile] enchanted_jae and [personal profile] herumtreiber agreed!

Thus, they have created [community profile] poetic_hp. *g*

Consider this post my invitation to you *pointedly eyes [personal profile] shaddyr, [personal profile] smallhobbit, and [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith* to join the community and post your poetry! Let's make 2018 more poetic. <3


Instant Pot Herbed Chickpea Plov [21 Jan 2018|07:57am]
101cookbooks

Plovs. I started cooking them last year pretty regularly, locking onto one in particular early in my exploration. It was the Green-herbed Plov with Chickpeas in the Samarkand cookbook by Caroline Eden and Eleanor Ford. It is the lone vegetarian plov they included in that book, because, as noted, it's hard to find a plov in Central Asia without meat as its central component. If you love robust one-pot rice dishes, and you own an Instant Pot, you're going to want to dig in here, this recipe is for you.

If you've never experienced a plov, its heralded as "the undisputed king" of Uzbek cuisine, a steaming pilaf cooked in layers, served everywhere in Central Asia. Think of plovs as the perfect all-in-one-pot preparation, and this is the version you'll want to start with if you're vegetarian or vegan. It has rice, and chickpeas, fragrant spices, spinach, herbs, saffron, garlic, and olives. It's the epitome of family style - served on platters, for visitors, for celebrations, for holidays.

Instant Pot Herbed Chickpea Plov

In the beginning I was cooking my plovs in a big cast iron Dutch oven, but quickly moved on to a kamado-san rice cooker donabe. I won't do the donabe deep-dive here, but nailing a plov in a kamado-san donabe, consistently (keyword), is master class stuff. Which is why I thought this recipe would never make it onto the site, it was one for the personal collection ;). To cook plovs in the donabe isn't for the faint of heart, and for every three times I nailed it, there was one time I really didn't. And then(!)....then I bought the Instant Pot, and decided to try my plov in that. Guess what? SO much more consistent, likely because there's no variation in temperature and heat from one attempt to the next in the IP. The results are great, and relatively predictable. So here we are - an Instant Pot Plov. Give it a go! It's great day after as well.

Spicy Rainbow Chop Salad with Peanuts [20 Jan 2018|08:21am]
101cookbooks

The base of this winter chopped salad is a new-to-me, homemade, red curry paste. I can't stop using it, and it was perfect in this chopped salad situation. The curry paste went in the dressing. Once you've made the dressing, blood oranges, crispy shallots, peanuts, radicchio, herbs, brown rice, scallions, and tofu are tossed with it. I'll be honest, this isn't the most weeknight-friendly recipe (here's a link if you're looking for the easiest dinners, or quick recipes in general), but it's so good, you'll want to give it a try at some point when you aren't crunched for time.

I'm posting the red curry paste I used on its own page, it's the A.P.C.P. - All-Purpose Curry Paste from Kris Yenbamroong's Night + Market Cookbook. If you're inclined to make your own curry pastes, you're going to want to take this one for a spin. I love it, and have been using it in everything lately - curry pots, this salad, spring rolls, etc. Enjoy!

Night + Market All-Purpose Curry Paste [20 Jan 2018|08:15am]
101cookbooks

I'll start by telling you I love this curry paste. But, before you read any further, you need to think about where you might buy galangal. Also, if you can track down makrut lime leaves, your curry paste will be that much better for it (some store might still label it kaffir lime). This is the A.P.C.P. - All-Purpose Curry Paste from Kris Yenbamroong's Night + Market Cookbook. It is wildly aromatic and mildly spicy, with citrus and pine notes built on a garlic foundation. I've been using it in weeknight curries, as a je ne said quoi note in every soup I've cooked this week, and as the flavor base for a number of salad dressings (in this Rainbow Chop Salad with Peanuts, for example). This recipe makes two cups, the perfect amount for using some / freezing some.

I did his vegan variation, omitting shrimp paste, seasoning with a bit of extra salt or thin soy sauce. As far as tracking down ingredients, if you have access to an Asian market or grocer, start there. You should be able to source the lemongrass, galangal, and (maybe!) the lime leaves. Check the freezer section for leaves if you don't see them fresh. I suggest substitutions down below if you get stumped by any of these. Pro tip: buy extra ingredients, because you're going to want to make more. It's a perfect red curry paste to keep on hand. You can freeze the galangal, trimmed lemongrass, and lime leaves until you're ready to use them.

Title: In The Closet

Characters/Pairings: Severus/Remus
Rating: NC-17
Kinks/Themes Chosen: Everything old is new again!: Cleaning up, Quickies, Oil
Other Warnings/Content: Canon Divergent, Party Games, Spin the Wand, Seven Minutes in Heaven, Mild Homophobia, Repressed Sexuality, Coming Out, Virginity, Underage Drinking, Recreational Drug Use, Magical Drugs, Underage Sex, Snogging, Frottage, Premature Ejaculation, Humiliation, Handjobs, Dub-con, Ravenclaw!Marlene
Word Count: 8,642
Summary: Severus Snape was staring at him from the other side of the circle. Remus looked into his wide eyes and thought that he might be sick. His breathing was harsh and loud to his ears, his heart thumping against his rib cage. The wand was pointing straight at him, shining like a beacon, sure in its selection in a way that Remus could never be. And yet Snape didn't look outraged or offended. He looked scared, scared beyond belief. Remus thought with a bubbly flip of his stomach that it must be like looking in a mirror.

A/N: In the theme of "everything old is new again," I thought it'd be fun to take us way, way back to my very first ship! The truth is, I haven't been crazy about this pairing since I was probably about fourteen or so, and I've never written fic about it (at least not exclusively) ― so this was actually a challenging and yet refreshing thing for me to explore.
