Three little piggies!


Just up - Foxloft recipes page!


An example of what's there:

Thanks to a link to a picture from primaldog I discovered pig pirozhki! I couldn't wait to try this out but unfortunately the recipe was in Russian. So, after a bit of digging and some creativity on my own part I cam up with a recipe that is fun and delicious. :) Of course, I had to make it into boars.


Three little piggies!

You could really make these into any shapes you wanted to, or if you felt lazy you don't have to shape them at all. They are an awesome way to use leftover meat (I used ham from a spiral ham) but you could use pretty much anything - or just veggies and no meat at all.

I also started adding some other recipes for my most requested items - I'll note here when I update in the future. :) I've got a whole lot of things I'd like to put up but writing the recipes out from scratch is extremely time consuming.

Bon apetit!

I need to try this sometime, it looks so yummy. I believe I had these at Pike Street Market in Seattle though not as creative as you made them and as well done! More work though then I would want to do. ;D
Love the coon pic too!

Ham... inside the pigs... too precious! ANd it looks like a decently easy recipe. I've been thinking about trying to make various breads (never have played with yeast before), and this looks like a very good way to start. Thanks for posting!

Daaaw :3

This would be an interesting thing to try to make gluten free. I made the best bread recipie the other day, it actually rose like normal wheat bread, that might do the trick XD

Oh hey speaking of baking, do you know if water is better than say butter or milk for brushing on an unbaked loaf for a hard french bread kinda crust?

I've never done any gluten-free cooking but I've always meant to try. :) We've got a great local food co-op that has tons of different ingredients for it.
Water is the best for french bread crusts, you just need to get a spray bottle set to mist and use lukewarm water in it. Spray lightly before you bake then every 10-15 minutes while cooking! It's really the spraying while cooking that does this (crunchy outside soft inside) - egg or butter/milk will just give that smooth golden brown outside.

I knew you'd know XD thanks- I have a loaf rising in the kitchen as I type XD

If you wanna try the gluten free cooking, feel free to ask me anything about flours or differences or recipes :3

Do you have a favorite recipe for it? I've got a few friends who are sensitive to gluten and I'd love to be able to make something nice for them. Plus I think it's just better to eat way less gluten anyways, wouldnt be a bad thing for me to do!
Thank you. :)
