The original recipe doesn't have kale in it. Adzuki beans are a little sweet and nutty. I think kids might like this. I would also leave out the sesame oil. Good luck.

Yes, I am sort of glad they have such a short season for that reason. I do love the taste of them.

I love fresh Spring peas. maybe you will let me try one this year. :-)

They are good. They might be a little spicy for the kiddies, though you can control the heat. I would love to get a package from your CSA on my doorstep. I think cabbage travels well and keeps forever. It's kind of like having a leafy gourd in your crisper.

The coconut milk is what might appeal to Camila. I'm not sure she will like the curry. But, you could use a nice mild smoky paprika instead. I do like the idea of adding carrots or maybe winter squash to sweeten it up a bit. Might have to try that.
I might suggest that you use 1/2 WW flour and 1/2 unbleached white for a lighter baguette for Camila. Mine are hearty. To answer your random question, I rarely use brown sugar, but I do use molasses. Molasses is great in steamed breads or non-yeast breads with nuts, or squash, or (dare I say it) raisins. I also have cooked with molasses when braising or barbequeing. Blackstrap molasses is nutritious, unlike sugar.

Yes, it was an iron skillet, but not the black kind. It is still there. Gumma used to take the entire pork roll, score and glaze it, and bake it like ham. With a salad and potatoes, that was dinner. It was pretty funny.

Yes, just on the edge of burned - good memory. I like my toast that way too. The problem with pork roll is that it smells too good while cooking to wait for it to get to Don's crispy stage. I wish he were here to cook me another breakfast and teach me patience.

Happy Anniversary & Happy Birthday! Bourbon and M&Ms - LOL. Our unhealthy habit was Haagen Daz (sp?) right out of the container. I enjoy black eyed peas. I may have to resurect an old recipe for those and play with it. I think it is called Hoppin' John.
Thanks, T.

Thanks so much for that link. Camila is a lucky girl to have a chef as a mother. I rarely eat pancakes because they are so dense and filling. I am for sure going to try these.

I will check out the roasted recipe. Thanks. I toyed with doing the raw salad that someone did on Top Chef - Casey? If that recipe could get kids to eat brussels sprouts, it had to be good. Oh, I corrected my recipe. I forgot that I added garlic.

I haven't eaten at Blossom. I will add it to my list of places to go. Candle 79 also has a take-away place. It is the original Candle 75 on 3rd Avenue and 75th.

Looks like I have to approve of your comments before they get published - my fault. I will surely remedy that so your fabulous comments appear. ;-)

Beth: Thank you for your comment. If you would like to make comments public, I think you can by clicking on "publish". I love that you tried to write a paper on "mystical experiences inspired by nature", even though you say it was a flop. Not all of my early mornings are stunning and inspirational. They are often rudely interrupted by a snow plow or a garbage truck, or some other mechanical noise. But, there are those quiet dawns with great sunrises that just start the day out right. As for escaping the chaos - mi casa e su casa.

Thank you for this. I also do the squishing with my hands until the bread and milk are quite soft like a pate. I like the sound of soft meatballs. I think I'll try the poaching method and see how mine survive. Since I do a lower fat version by using turkey, lean beef, and almond milk, I am pretty sure my recipe would do will with Mario's technique. Love your comments, Chef!

Good question, Dibbie. Pattypan squash is a young Spring vegetable. But, with great greenhouse technology, we can get it all year here in the US. It is rare to find it now. When I do see it, I grab it. That said, it won't last as long in the crisper drawer of your fridge this time of year. I think the Spring grown ones are hardier.

Oh, me too, and the little guys are so sweet. They carmelize while roasting. I was given a giant Italian squash this summer, cuccuza I think, that challenged me. I will do a post on how to deal with that soon. Simple is good. Thanks for the comment.
