Meatless Monday! French Onion Soup, Easy, Flavorful Soup, Winter Winner Soup

In the winter there is nothing like a warming bowl of soup. It was cold on Sunday. But, today at the Delaware Beaches the temperatures will rise to the upper 40’s. I’ll take that.

Over the years I have bought tons of magazines. A lot of them have been food oriented. I go through them many times and then I start cutting recipes out and putting them in folders. With a morning coffee I go through them and if something catches my eye, I take it out.

I picked an Onion Soup Recipe that got my attention back in 2013 in a Food & Wine Magazine. It is a healthier version of the traditional French Onion Soup. Traditional soups are fantastic but making them healthier while conserving flavor it’s the trick. That hunk of bread and thick layer of melting cheese makes it high in calories and sodium. Sorry, but it is true.

For Meatless Monday and being that it is a cloudy day this onion soup might be just what you need. I made it yesterday and it is a keeper.

Meatless Monday is a worldwide organization trying to have folks like us eat meatless at least one day per week.

The Recipe

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 large onions, (sweet or regular) halved and thinly sliced

Kosher Salt

1/4 cup of dry white wine

1 tablespoon soy sauce

6 cups of beef stock or low sodium broth

Baguettes (either cut your own or buy prepared ones) I used small ones for my large bowl.

Gruyere shredded cheese. I packed that cheese on the baguettes.

In a large pot heat oil until shimmering. Add the onions and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the onions are softened and just starting to brown. Maybe about 7 minutes or so. Taste the broth and add a bit of salt and continue to cook over moderate low heat, stirring occasionally until the onions are soft and golden. I would say 20 minutes?

Add the wine and soy sauce to the pot. Cook for a few more minutes.

Add the stock and bring to a boil. Then, simmer over low to moderate heat, again stirring occasionally until the onion broth is well flavored and slightly reduced. Taste again and if needed add more salt.

You can make the soup ahead of time until this point.

Then pre-heat the broiler and arrange the baguettes on a baking sheet and top with the Gruyere cheese. Broil until melted.

To serve this onion soup, ladle it into bowls and top with the cheese toasts. You may sprinkle a little bit of cheese all over the soup prior to placing the cheese toasts, as well.

Hope this will be a keeper for you too. Remember AboutMyBeaches has a FB page just in case you want to chime in.

This blog started in 2009 with the idea of offering the readers who want to be in the know about events, restaurants, reviews, where to shop and what to cook for dinner.

My Sister’s Fault, Bakery, Take Out, Milford, Delaware, Puerto Rican Bakery, Empanadas, Sandwiches, Cubanos, Pastries, Southern Delaware

My Sister’s Fault a Puerto Rican “antojitos” delight. The 2 sisters are from Puerto Rico and have been in the area for some time. One bakes and that would be Rous and one cooks; that would be Angie.

Puerto Rican cooking is full of flavor and spices. And yes there is a lot of fried food, as well. As I am Puerto Rican myself, I can tell you that when I visit Puerto Rico I love eating the food…..fried plantains, pastelillos or turnovers made with meat, chicken or chapin which is a small fish.

The cooking can be very simple or it can be very exotic depending what local ingredients, fruits and veggies you use.

My friend Susan called me the other day to see if I wanted to visit My Sister’s Fault in Milford, Delaware. It is right in town on 10 SW NW Front St. Their telephone is 302-503-7446. And the website is http://www.mysistersfault-milford.com. Take Rt. 1 North and from Rehoboth Beach it is only about 25 minutes or so.

The menu is on the board and desserts are in cases. You can also order cakes for any special occasion.

We had 2 empanadas (turnovers) Puerto Rican style. The real deal. Flavorful, reminding me how good they truly are. We ate them there but you can take them to go and fry them in the comfort of your own kitchen.

We decided on a Cubano or Cuban Sandwich. The bread was warm but not pressed. The pork was delicious, homemade. This Cubano was very big so we had them cut it in half and as you can see it was definitely shareable.

Puerto Rican desserts like flan, pastelillos (pastry) de guayaba which is guava are also available.

It is a small place and the sisters are so friendly. They are open Wednesday through Saturday. They cook and bake on Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday through Friday the hours are 8:30 to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday8:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.

We only had a tasting but they offer Puerto Rican rice dishes, slowly cooked pork, stuffed deep fried potatoes and so much more. Check their Face Book Page or give them a call to see what they are offering on a particular day.

Their custom cakes are amazing.

Who’s fault is it? It is My Sister’s Fault.

Meatless Monday, Delaware Beaches, Recipe, Spinach Pie, Easy, 5 Ingredients, Southern Delaware Eats, Rehoboth Beach, Lewes, Bethany, Fenwick Island, Healthy Eating, Recipes Begged, Borrowed & Stolen

 

I got into not eating meat on Monday.  Following the Meatless Monday campaign if you want to know.  This is an international campaign nonetheless.  It is just a way of not eating meat one day of the week to improve your health.  This organization was founded in 2003.  There is also a Facebook Page called Meatless Monday. To know more about it, please visit http://www.meatlessmonday.com.

A few years ago I was visiting my cousins on the island of Culebra.  Gorgeous beaches, beautiful scenery.  On the photo a look at Luis Pena from their balconies.  One of the recipes they prepared was a Spinach Pie.  Not only was it good, but it was so easy with 5 ingredients.  The chopped frozen spinach I was buying for this recipe had a lot of water but I found a few months ago a spinach that is steamable and to tell you the truth it is so much better.  You can get it in all supermarkets.

 

I have shared this recipe on my website before so I decided to do it again as I remembered that this summer, here in Rehoboth Beach, Sharon, Amantha, Debbie and I would have impromptu dinners on the beach. This is one of the recipes I took.  You can eat it hot, warm, room temperature or even cold.

Recipe – Spinach Pie

1 package or bag of spinach – 10 ounces

1 block cream cheese.  You can use the less fat one or regular one.

1 onion (Cut in chunks.)

4 eggs

1 cup Parmesan cheese

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease lightly a pie dish.  I use a glass one.  Let spinach defrost and squeeze it to get all the water out.  Take the cream cheese out of the refrigerator and let it soften a bit.

In a blender put eggs, spinach, onion, and cream cheese.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  I usually add just pepper since the cheese has plenty of salt.  Blend.  Pour into a pie dish.

Place in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top to cover.  The cheese will make a crust and will add taste to the pie. Don’t be shy and sprinkle on.

It will take another half hour or so to be ready.  Test it with a knife and if comes out clean then it is ready.  It should have a nice rich crust.

You can really use this spinach pie for breakfast, lunch or dinner. And even for an appetizer.  I would cut in squares instead of wedges if that is the case.

When I joined my friends this summer for our Rehoboth Beach dinners, I think they loved it.  Don’t you think?  They are smiling!

Remember that these recipes are begged, borrowed, and stolen…..please make them your own.

Until next time!

Meatless Monday, Global Movement, Eggplant Parm, Recipe, Easy, Make it Gluten Free!!, Delaware Beaches, Coastal Delaware

It has been a while since I have posted a recipe for Meatless Monday.  This is a “global movement, created in 2003 by Sid Lerner in association with Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health”.  It is a way to eat just one day a week free of meat….go vegetarian for just that one day will help in our overall health.  For more information, and recipes, as well, please visit http://www.meatlessmonday.com.

I had a couple of good size eggplants and decided that today, being Monday, I would use them to make Eggplant Parm.  I have made this dish so many times, and every time I either add something or delete something.  I always make recipes my own.  So should you, it is fun to experiment.

2  medium to large eggplants

3 eggs

Oil for frying

Italian Breadcrumbs (If manking it gluten free, please make sure you buy some of the many available breadcrumbs that are gluten free.)

Spaghetti Sauce (I tried Mia’s Kitchen Bistro Marinara from Safeway and it is all natural and gluten free, made in Sonoma, California.)

Mozzarella Cheese (I used the already shredded cheese, but you can shred your own if you are eating gluten free. Make sure to read the labels.

1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese.  I grated it myself, which is great if you are eating gluten free.  The packaged cheeses already grated might have an additive that contains gluten.

Basil

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees

Slightly grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.

Put about a cup of the spaghetti sauce and spread.

Cut the eggplant in round slices.  I do not peel the eggplant.  I think the skin looks great and it is where your vitamins are, as well.

In a shallow bowl cracked the eggs and mix.  In a plate put the Italian breadcrumbs.

In a large frying pan put enough vegetable oil in order to fry the eggplant.  It does not have to be too deep.

Dip the eggplants in the eggs and then dip in the Italian breadcrumbs.

Fry them until lightly brown.  I usually get them out and let them sit on paper towels, but you can just transfer them directly to the prepared baking dish, as well.

DSCN2684

Arrange them on the baking dish as you wish.  You will be making two layers.

DSCN2687

Spread spaghetti sauce on them and also half of the mozzarella.  Repeat the process and at this point you will also sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top. Sprinkle some Basil for color too.  Then to the oven.

DSCN2688

Bake for about 45 minutes or so until they look like this…….

DSCN2690

This dish has so much color….it should also be the center of attention on your plate.  A green salad or green veggie is all you need.

For dessert, well, it is that time of the year when you just have to think that summer is around the corner but if you feel like living dangerously, well, go ahead and maybe go visit Edie Bees on Second Street in Lewes, Delaware, and grab something sweet and sinfully delish.

“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.”  booker t. washington

With that quote I begin my post by reminding you that Delaware is a Small Wonder with a Big Heart.  Fundraising events happen all year round, but it seems that as the Second Season takes hold of all of us living in Southern Delaware, we set records for fundraising.  It is incredible the amount of money raised to help others.

I got an invite to a Kick Off Party for the Southern Delaware Wine, Food and Music Festival which will take place on Saturday, October 17th (noon until 4:30 p.m.) at Independence Hall located at 23767 Samuel Adams Circle in Millsboro, Delawared.  Even though the address is Millsboro, it is, actually, closer to the beaches.

DSCN0349DSCN0350

The Kick Off Party took place at (a)Muse on Baltimore Avenue in Downtown Rehoboth Beach, on Thursday, 9/17.  My friend, Susan DiMondi came with me to see what all the commotion was all about.

Let me tell you a little about What is Going On…

This event is being billed as the “ultimate wine, food and music event on DelMarVa”.  It will be hosted by former Bad Company bassist, now food, wine and music aficionado, Paul Cullen.  It will be a fun and refined afternoon of food, beer and wine samplings and pairings, cooking demos, and a great musical line-up.

This is a benefit for Rotary’s Global Polio Eradication Initiative and Lewes-Rehoboth Meals on Wheels.

This is an inaugural SoDelFest.  The culinary Theater will host the chef showcases/demos, where you will find Neil Fuentes, The Singing Chef and Food Rewrapped Champion and 5 of our top local chefs including: Hari Cameron, Lion Gardner, Doug Ruley, Ronnie Burkle and Sean Correa.

The festival will also offer wine and food pairings with 13 local restaurants including; Abbot’s Grille, Bluecoast, Seafood Grill, Bramble and Brine, Cultured Pearl, Grandpa 9Mac), JD Shuckers, Lupo’s Italian Kitchen, Michy’s Relaxed Dining, Nage, Palate, Semra’s, Summerhouse and Touch of Italy.

You will be able to experience the Man Cave….don’t worry we are all welcome for cocktails, a raw bar and Cigars!  Join Rob Bagle from Bramble & Brine and representatives from Wigle Whiskey, Dad’s Hat, Benromach Scotch, George’s Bloody Mary Mix (a new local favorite from Berline, Maryland) and 16 Mile Brewery.  There may just be oyster shooters there!

30 wines will be offered by Teller Wines and the distributors for pairing and additional tastes.  Dogfish Head and Mispillion Breweries will be pouring their fall favorites at the bar!

There will be 2 special wine education seminars in the Wine University; Mike Zygmonski (Level II Sommelier, Sodel Concepts) will present a blind tasting and John McDonald (Wine Columnist, Cape Gazette) will present Wine 101 for anyone who wants to learn about the art of Wine Tasting.

General Admission tickets are $75 and there is a VIP upgrade that includes two special tastings at 95+ point wines and exclusive cheeses and a seat on-stage during one of the chef showcases.  The press is invited at no charge with advance notice.  Please visit http://www.sodelfest.com

Presenting Sponsor:  Ocean Atlantic Companies

Major Sponsors:  Schell Brothers, Sysco, SoDel Concepts, Coastal Style

Sponsors:  Good Clean Fun Life, Sposato Family Vineyards, Active Adult Realty

Event Chair is Stacy LaMotta

Event Coordinator is Carlene Roche

Volunteer Coordinator is Meg Gardner

Arriving at (a)Muse Susan and I were invited to taste some of the wines offered by Sposato.  For 6 years the Sposato Family researched, studied and visited South America.  In 2012 the family purchased their farm in the heart of Argentina’s wine country, Mendoza.

DSCN0340

Based on their 23 years of experience in working with land, soil irrigation and plants, by running their top rated landscape company, Sposato Landscape Co., they saw this as a great opportunity to further their experience in the agriculture industry.  The farm was purchased as virgin ground.  A new irrigation system, electric and other improvements have been installed with more to come.

The farm is 250 acreas located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, 3,000 ft. above sea level.  Sposato Family Vineyard has some of the best and most popular wineries in Argentina as neighbors.  The farm is located between two notable wineries, Bodega Septima and Vina Cobos by Paul Hobbs with more just around the corner.

DSCN0345

We tasted 2015 Chardonnay.  This fruit focused Chardonnay has an attractive color with aromas of tropical fruit, apples and peaches.  Also a 2015 Sauvignon Blanc, from their prize winning high elevation vineyards has aromas of grapefruit, passion fruit, herbs, species and orange blossom notes that are persistent through the finish.  The 2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has intense red with blue shades. Another one was their 2013 Reserve Malbec…intense violet color, typical of Argentine Malbec.  And the 2014 Malbec had deep purple color, with high intensity of black fruits, raspberries and violets.  Please note that you can get the wines in the Rehoboth Beach and Lewes area.

A presentation was given by all of those that are involved and making sure that this will be an unforgettable event.

Destination? Milford, Delaware, Causey Mansion Bed & Breakfast, Small Town America has its Charm!! Southern Delaware

dscn6115

Not sure if you got stuck in one of the traffic jams this holiday week-end.  If you did, I feel your pain.  Some of us that live here year-round take a road trip to other towns in Southern Delaware, where life is a little more calm during these holiday week-ends.  My destination with my neighbor, Chris, was the town of Milford, Delaware, known as The Heart of Kent and Sussex.  It is just less than half hour from Rehoboth Beach going north.

dscn6080

Milford is a community with respect for its past and great promise for the future.  It is the gateway to Southern Delaware.

For some years, Downtown Milford has been going through a revitalization, which brings residential streets in small towns back to life.  It has coffee shops, art galleries, restaurants, and a Riverwalk.

dscn5889

The Mispillion Riverwalk is a greenway space that preserves the town’s waterfront.  Milford has over 2 centuries of shipbuilding.  At one point there were 7 shipyards, located along this walk.  And, between 1680 and 1927 they produced over 600 wooden sailing ships.

dscn5936

The displayed boat sculptures around town are all decorated with the theme of Milford’s “River town”, “Art Town”, “Home Town”.

dscn6074

The inspiration was the Augusta, a private yacht built in 1927 at Vinyard Shipyard.  In 2010 it was restored to its original beauty.

dscn6113

I grew up in a small town on the eastern side of the island of Puerto Rico.  Sundays were so quiet.  You could take a leisure stroll through the town and maybe not see a single person.  Sundays were days for worship and family time.  Arriving in Milford on Sunday brought back those memories of so many years ago.  So, I took the photos of a quiet Sunday in Milford.

dscn5887

CAUSEY MANSION BED & BREAKFAST

dscn5933

I remembered that a few years ago I stopped at this mansion to take some photos.  There was a “for sale” sign.  Well, let’s see what happened to this historic home.  First let me tell you a bit about this home.  It is on the National Register of Historic Places.  The original part of the house was built in 1763.  The rest in 1865.  It was the former home of two Delaware governors.

dscn5893

The address is 1 Causey Avenue, Milford, DE 19963  Tel. 302-422-0979  Website?  http://www.causeymansion.com

dscn5929

Delaware is becoming the place to retire.  Among the many benefits of living in this small state is the fact that our property taxes are low.  Jan Broulik and Joe Phillips decided that moving from the Chevy Chase area to Milford was going to be just perfect.  They are the new owners of the Causey Mansion.  We met Jan who took us through the gardens and gave us a tour of this historic home. Later on we met Joe.  Please visit the above mentioned website for more information on the history of Causey Mansion, rates, and events happening at the Mansion.  You may also find Causey Mansion Bed & Breakfast on Facebook.

dscn5894

They moved in and then their work has been non stop.  Jan loves to work in the garden and he is laying all the stone in the property.  Causey Mansion is the perfect place for a wedding so they are making it just right for that special event in someone’s life.

dscn5895

The Boxwood is over 150 years old, from some of the rooms you can see them.

dscn5926

At the present time there are 4 rooms for rent.  They are spacious and with their own bathrooms.  Following are 3 of those rooms.

dscn5927

dscn5915

dscn5918

Every nook and cranny has a story, just like every piece of furniture has one, as well.  The majority of the furniture is French, Japanese, and some Italian.

dscn5900

dscn5906

The Grand Piano caught our attention.  It was a 1904 Steinway Grand Piano.  Jan picked the music, sat down, and began to play All I Ask of You from Phantom of the Opera.  He brought us to tears.  The sounds were amazing.  It was truly so beautiful and totally unexpected.

dscn5909

Causey Mansion is a Greek Revival, Georgian Style home.  Governor Peter Causey modified it to Greek Revival when he lived in this house from 1849 to 1871.  He served as Governor of the State of Delaware from 1855 until 1859.  It is still believed that he roams around the home.  He is a friendly ghost

dscn5902

There is a dining room with a big round table for easier conversation.

dscn5896

And a friendly kitchen area.

dscn5928

The Causey Mansion is about 5,000 square feet so you will feel comfortable and at ease in any room.

dscn5913

Jan and Joe are so easy to talk to.  They have immersed themselves in the community and are enjoying the fact that Milford is now their home!!  Please stop by to see all the work they are doing to this beautiful historic home.  If you feel like getting away from it all…..then, make a reservation!!

dscn5934

Thanks Jan and Joe for making our day!!

Meatless Monday!! Black Bean Burgers, Easy, Tasty, Rehoboth Beach Eats, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware, Recipes Begged, Borrow & Stolen

I don’t even know when I decided to put recipes for Meatless Monday.  Some Mondays I do not follow this global movement.  But others, like tonight, made me want to construct a Bean Burger….The recipe is stolen, adding my own twist.

Meatless Monday started in 2003, launched in association with the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.  It has been catching on.  The movement is active in about 36 countries.  Every nation brings its uniqueness…culture, customs, and cuisine to the table in meat free dishes.  To learn more, please visit http://www.meatlessmonday.com.

Monday is the chosen day because we see it as the beginning of the week.  I get it, I get it….I always start my diets on Monday.  It is a fresh start.  Yeah, and at times is downhill from Monday on.

This recipe is so easy.  A little bit of this and a little bit of that.  I am sure you can make it your own, as well.

A BLACK BEAN BURGER FOR MEATLESS MONDAY

2 cans black beans, divided, rinsed and drained (I bought low sodium beans)

1 small chopped yellow onion

1/4 cup chopped parsley

1 minced garlic clove

2 teaspoons cumin

1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt (optional)

1 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons oil for frying pan (your preferred oil)

3/4 bag of frozen peas and carrots

1 cup panko (I bought Chipotle Panko)

2 eggs

Puree 1 can beans, onion, parsley, garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper in a food processor until smooth.  Mine looks a little chunky because I do not own a food processor.  The blender was a pain, but I did it, somewhat.

dscn4478

To the burger mixture, add the other can of beans, the peas and carrots, the panko and the eggs.  Mix to combine.

dscn4479

Heat a skillet to medium heat.

In the meantime form the burger patties.

dscn4482

Place them in two batches in the skillet and cook until browned.  About 4 minutes on each side.

dscn4483

Serve on rolls….I chose this Pretzel Roll.  Add lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard and avocado.

dscn4489

Or serve on a salad if you are not eating carbs.

dscn4492

Enjoy!!
