Adventures with my Dad’s old copy of The Moosewood Cookbook. This isn’t the NewMoosewood Cookbook either. No, sir — this one came from 1977 when my dad was a student at Cornell in Ithaca, NY (where the Moosewood restaurant can be found). “It was a great restaurant, but not an all-the-time restaurant” for poor college student Dad. Fortunately, the majority of the recipes are interesting, tasty takes on affordable ingredients.
I was planning to cook on Wednesday night, but remembered halfway through the day that I had made dinner plans with a friend that night! I had to make the heartbreaking phone call to my mom to tell her that, no, I would not be cooking dinner for her that night. But the seafood risotto I had that evening was a good replacement for home cooking.
Okay — fast forward to Thursday. Time to tackle three recipes from Moosewood. Stuffed Zucchini, Turkish Style (the one I will be sharing), along with Spicy Tomato Soup and Carrot Loaf for dessert. They were all delicious and incredibly straightforward recipes. Just how I like it!
