Saffron Cookies

INGREDIENTS

24 cookies roughly

2 tablespoons milk, slightly warmed
1⁄4 teaspoon a pinch saffron strand, slightly crushed
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 cup butter, softened (1 stick)
1 cup granulated sugar
1⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup white chocolate chips (optional) or 1 cup slivered almonds (optional) or 1 cup chopped cashews (optional)

DIRECTIONS

In a little bowl warm the milk and add the saffron strands, slightly crushing them. Set aside and let steep, the longer the better. This can be done several hours before-hand. The saffron will turn the milk a lovely sunny yellow.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Sift or whisk flour, baking soda and salt together; set aside.
Beat butter until softened. Slowly add sugars and beat well until mixture slightly increases in volume.
In a small bowl mix together saffron mixture, egg and vanilla. Add egg mixture to butter mixture and beat, scraping down bowl as needed.
Add flour mixture to butter mixture gradually, stirring until flour is incorporated. Stir in optional mix-ins if using.
Chill until firm (30-45 minute up to overnight) or be lazy and stick in the freezer for 15 minute like me.
Drop by mounded tablespoonfuls onto baking sheet and bake 12-14 minutes. Let rest on baking sheet for a couple of minutes then transfer to wire racks to cool.

Poseidon's Tuna Melts

Simple recipe for when you want to make tuna melts but don't want to skimp on it being hella awesome...

Ingredients
1 can of White Albacore Tuna
2 Tbps of Your Favorite Mayonnaise (I use "Just Mayo")
1 tps of Dill relish (do not use sweet relish - this is the main difference compared to most tuna melts)
1 tbps of Dijon Mustard (don't use too much)
1 boiled egg (chopped)
1 dash of paprika
Finely chopped spring onions (amount to your own desire)

Directions

Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl. I know some people prefer to put some sugar into their tuna melt if you are one of those types of people - make sure you try it before you add any sugar to it (I'm not one of these people).

Get your bread/roll/bun and place a slice of Colby Jack cheese on the bottom. Put some of the mixed tuna on top of the slice of Colby Jack, making sure to evenly spread it throughout your chosen bread. Then place a slice of Muenster cheese on top of the tuna.

Toss it into the oven at 350°F for about five minutes.

Moammar Rice

An Egyptian dish that is made from rice, milk, and soup. It's a domestic dish that you won't commonly find in restaurants.

Ingredients

2 cups of rice
1 cup of milk
1 cup of broth
2 Tbps of Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 tsp of black pepper (freshly ground is superior)
1 tsp of various spices (up to you - I normally use some paprika and saffron)
1 tsp of salt
Your desired amount of meat

Directions

Wash the rice and soak in water for 15 minutes, then drain and dry the rice.

Add spices and black pepper to the rice. Add the heavy whipping cream and mix well.

Move rice into either a clay bowl or Pyrex casserole bowl.

Boil the milk and broth together, add salt. Add this to the rice. Add any meat (I usually use slices of beef, bacon, or lamb).

Stir rice and pre-heat your oven at 350°F. Add bowl/casserole of rice to the oven once it's done preheating. Spread about a teaspoon of ghee or butter to the top of the rice, just for additional flavor.

Remove rice from the oven after 15 minutes.

Turkey Patties in Mushroom sauce
Serves 4
Ingredients:
2 tsp. Butter
3 Scallions, chopped
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 tbsp. Garlic, minced
2 sprigs fresh Thyme
1/8 tsp. Kosher Salt (or Sea Salt)
1/8 tsp. Ground Black pepper
1/2 tsp. Dried Red Chili Pepper
Sauce:
2 Tbsp. Organic Plain Yogurt
4 FL Oz Heavy Whipped Cream/or Half and Half
Salt to taste
Turkey Patty:
1 lbs. (453g) Ground Turkey
1 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
1/4 onion, shredded or minced
1 tbsp. Olive Oil
Garnish:
Chopped Chives OR Scallions

First, in the large mixing bowl add ground turkey and season it. It can be in the fridge covered overnight. Make patties and cook in the fry pan with a few tbsp of oil, or grill it. It's done when it is golden on the outside, and internal temperature of the turkey patty is at least 165° F, to kill potentially harmful bacteria. Once patties are done cooking, set them aside. In the saute pan, or frying pan, add butter and let the butter slightly melt. Add chopped scallions, stir for a few seconds, then add minced garlic. Stir fry for a minute or so, then add washed and sliced mushrooms and thyme leaves. Season with salt, black pepper and red chili pepper. Cook for about 10 minutes on medium high temperature, stir frying it to prevent from burning. Meanwhile, mix ingredients for sauce. Pour over the mushrooms and turn down the heat on low, let it cook for 15 more minutes. Make sure to mix sauce and watch closely, do not cover it will bubble up. Once the sauce thickened and it's reduced to almost half, add cooked/grilled patties. Turn patties few times while sauce is bubbling, before turning off the heat. Cover with the fitted lid and serve hot with rice, potatoes or macaroni.
