Viking Soup

While I as on a book tour I meet a woman who add immigrated to the United States and brought with her many recipes. She started a restaurant and served old Viking meals.

She created a soup and hadn't properly named it. Since she served it in her Viking restaurant, I call it Viking Soup.

I noticed that many of the ingredients help with weight-loss and warding off colds and other illnesses.
Go a head and try it.
It took me a little bit to convert the recipe over into American measurements, but here it is:

Part One:

2 Big Onions
2/3 C. Olive Oil
2/3 T. Ground Cumin
2/3 T. Ground Turmeric
1 t. Ground  paprika
1/2 t. Ground  All Spice
1/2 t. Ground Cinnamon
2 T. Salt
1/2 t. Ground Black Pepper
2/3 T. Whole Mustard Seeds
1 T. Whole Coriander Seeds
8 Bay Leaves
1/2 t. Red Pepper Flakes
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper

Chop Onions and fry golden brown in olive oil.
Add all spices and coat well.

Part Two:

8 Cups of broth
1 24 oz can of crushed tomatoes
A piece of fresh ginger
2 cups of red lentils

Boil 35 Min

Part Three:

1 1/2 T. of Red Wine Vinegar
3 1/2 T. of Lemon Juice

Bring to a boil for 5 min

Part Four:

 Add a bit of chopped cilantro and parsley before serving.

Zombie Ice Cream

I saw this in a dream and asked my hubby to pick up a few ingredients for 
Zombie Ice Cream

I used walnuts for the brains!!!
Added coloring and flavoring.
And used strawberry topping for blood.

It was so awesome I shared it with the neighbors and they loved it too!


from the Monks of The Holy Trinity

3 cups water  2 packages active dry yeast  1/4 cup Trinity Abbey liquid honey (or light brown sugar or molasses)  2 teaspoons salt  2 tablespoons olive oil  2 cups white bread flour or all purpose white flour  6 cups unsifted whole wheat flour (more or less)

1. In saucepan, heat water to 100 F. Stir in honey. Pour into mixer bowl; sprinkle yeast over warm water/honey and stir in.  Wait for bubbles to appear.

2. Thoroughly mix in 2 cups white flour with spoon until smooth. Let mixture rest for half hour in warm place; mixture will foam.

 3. Using mixer or spoon, slowly mix in 1 cup whole wheat flour. Add olive oil and salt

4. Continue adding whole wheat flour until dough reaches right consistency (just slightly sticky). Check consistency with clean, dry hands. If too dry, add a few drops of water. If too wet, add a little more whole wheat flour. Knead dough for ten minutes on floured surface. Place dough in large greased bowl. Turn greased side up. Cover and let rise in warm place (85 F) until doubled in size (about an hour).

5. Knock down dough by pushing fist into center. Fold outer edges into the hole and push fist into center again. Repeat this knock down two times more. Turn dough upside down and shape into round ball. Divide in two loaves and place in greased pans, 9 1/4 x 5 1/4 x 2 3/4". (Optional:) Brush top with oil or soft butter for darker crust.

6. Final rise and baking. Cover pans and return them to a warm place for second rise. Preheat oven to 350 F. Let loaves rise until pans are almost entirely filled with dough (less than one hour).

Bake in middle of oven at 350 for 35 - 40 minutes.

Turn baked loaves out of pans onto cooling rack. Enjoy!

Thank you to the Monks of The Holy Trinity for sharing.

Goblin Tacos

My family has been on a big Goblin food kick lately, much like how some families like Mexican or Korean food.

Goblin Goulash and Goblin Tacos have been our fave so far. Almost everything else has way too much animal fat, squash, eggs from exotic animals, mushrooms, and onions (which we are not a big fan of in the Eden-Boyd household.)

This is a pretty good recipe that I've modified a bit for humans (and to be healthy.)

Goblin Tacos

3 C shredded cheese
12 tortillas
2 cans black beans (rinsed and drained)
2 cans of corn (rinsed and drained)
1 red pepper diced
1 orange pepper diced
1 yellow or green pepper diced
12 oz turkey bacon diced and cooked

In a hot ungreased pot, cook turkey bacon for 3 minutes. Stirring often.
Add corn and beans, cook 3 minutes. Stirring often.
Add peppers, cook 3 minutes. Stirring often.
Add cheese and cook until melted. Stirring often.

The mixture will make its own sauce.  
Add mixture to tortillas and eat like a taco or roll it to make a burrito. 

Zombie Jello
Here's an easy way to freak people out at Thanksgiving.

1 package of cherry jello
1 can of lychees drained and rinsed

Prepare jello as directed on the box then pour the drained and rinsed lychees into the liquid jello.
Refrigerate 2 hours to set.

I almost fainted when I saw what this looked like. I'm not posting a picture because it wouldn't do it justice and because I want you to try it.
