I love yorkshire pudding. I eat them plain, even. They're flour, milk, eggs, and shortening. I can't remember the exact measurements, but google it and you'll get about a million recipes for it.

Any meat, but I like pork tenderloin, marinate for freaking ever in lemon juice w/ seasoning of your choice (I use greek seasoning), roast with tons of fresh rosemary.
Or oven-roasted potatoes with fresh rosemary, onions, and seasoning. Seasoning counts as an ingredient right?
Or smashed potatoes with kale, onions, garlic, and seasoning, if the seasoning doesn't count as one.

Can you tell I like rosemary? And onions and potatoes?

This may be for sale on my etsy:

I'd recommend that the less ingredients you have- the fresher they should be.  If you have a farmers market in town, get your produce there! (Madison Ohio: Woodworth Market 6401 Middle Ridge Road, Wed & Sat only)

The 'Ole Traditional Carrot and Raisin Salad

Peel and clean a bunch of carrots.
Grate into a large bowl.
Toss in a handful of raisins (to make soft, soak in hot water for about 5 minutes).
Spoonfuls of mayo, just enough to combine all the ingredients.
Optional: add some drained crushed pineapple.

Black and Blue Balls: Black Sesame Blue Cheese Balls

In a skillet, toast 1/4 cup black sesame seeds until fragrant. Set aside to cool.

Mix together in a bowl:

    * 8 ounces softened cream cheese
    * 4 ounces blue cheese
    * 1/4 cup chopped parsley

Adjust the cream cheese to blue cheese ratio according to the strength of your blue cheese and taste preference.

Place the cheese mixture in the refrigerator to harden. Using a melon baller, scoop out the cheese mixture and roll into small balls. With dry hands, roll the cheese balls into the toasted black sesame seeds and place on your serving platter.

Strawberries and Whipped Ganache for Dipping

Place 12 ounces of  chopped chocolate into the bowl of a food processor.

Heat 12 ounces of heavy cream in a quart-sized, microwavable container and microwave for 3 to 4 minutes on high, or until it just begins to simmer; be careful not to allow cream to boil over. Pour the cream over the chocolate and let stand for 2 minutes. Add 2 tsp of vanilla extract or a Tbs of your favorite liquor. Process by pulsing several times until chocolate mixture is smooth. Can be used as is. To make it softer and fluffier, allow it to come to room temperature, approximately 2 hours. Once at room temperature, place in the bowl of a stand mixer and whisk on high for 2 to 3 minutes. Scoop into a bowl and serve with fresh strawberries.

Honey Ice Cream

In a sauce pan heat:
  * 1 1/2 cups of whole milk
  * 2/3 cup of local honey (a light variety)
heat this while stirring until it almost boils, then turn off the heat.  The goal here is to get the honey dissolved.

In a bowl whisk four egg yolks.  Temper in the hot milk and honey mixture, by slowly adding a ladelful of the hot mixture to your yolks, while whisking.  Add another ladelfull in the same manner.  Now add all of the egg mixture back to the sauce pan and stir over medium heat.  Cook until the mixture has thickened, but don't let it boil..  When thick, strain into a container and stir in 1 cup of cream and refrigerate until cold.  Now it is ready to be put into an ice cream maker.

Is it edamame (green soybean pods) season?

Bring a big pot of water to boil.
Add one pound or more of edamame (in their pods!), and 2 tbs of salt and boil for three minutes.
Drain well (don't rinse) and maybe sprinkle a touch more salt on them and serve.  Make sure to serve with an additional large bowl for the pods.  Take a edamame pod in your mouth and bite down, scraping the beans out.  Don't eat the pod.

do seasonings count? you could always opt for a casserole of some sort- meat/fish, a sauteed veggie, cooked pasta and cheese, plus seasoning? you could also cheat even a little...  Grin

you are not the boss of me
