Hi Everyone,

Gosh... I feel so bad about not continuing with my blog! :-( But it was waaaaaay too much work on top of my full-time job. But like Winston here, if there are recipes from the blog that you enjoyed, but didn't keep the recipe, PLEASE just write a request here, and I promise I will post it for you. (Wouldn't hurt to private message me as well...)

Here's the Lemon Sole recipe for you:

Ingredients
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
4 large sole fillets
flour for dredging
salt
juice of one lemon

Preparation
• lightly salt the fillets
• dredge fish in flour, shaking off excess
• heat a large nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat and add olive oil
• once oil is very hot, add fish to pan; cook for about 4 minutes on each side until fish is nicely browned
• with fish in the pan, add the lemon juice and swirl around until the juice thickens into a silky sauce

Enjoy! And again, I really do apologize for not keeping up with the blog...

I'm sure it was a lot of work....it was beautifully done! :D

Do you still have the instructions for how you made your candles? Also, the recipe for your potato latkes? I'm trying to remember the other recipes that I had contemplated but hadn't printed off. You'll be sorry that you said you would still share. :P

Here is the latke recipe for you! :-)

Ingredients
4 large russet potatoes
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 large onions
2 large eggs
1/3 cup flour
2 tsp. salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
canola oil for frying

Preparation
• Peel and grate onions finely in a food processor.
• Beat eggs lightly, set aside
• Peel potatoes, cut into large chunks and grate finely in a food processor
• Squeeze excess water from potatoes in a tea towel, place in bowl and mix with lemon juice
• Add onion, eggs, flour, salt and pepper to potatoes – mix well
• Heat 1/4 cup oil in frying pan
• Drop potato mixture in frying pan a tablespoon at a time; fry until brown on both sides
• Place latkes on paper towels to absorb the excess oil

*****

For the candles, I basically followed Martha Stewart's method:

http://www.marthastewart.com/273016/teacup-lights

Except she uses old candles that she melts down. I didn't have any old candles, so I bought the soy wax that Michael's sells. And I found it easy if I put the wax into an old soup can (label removed) and place it in a shallow pan with a little bit of water, simmering gently. Depending on how much wax I was melting, I sometimes would have to add in more water.

Hope this helps!

I'll share one for your trouble, found this quite a while back (I can take no credit for it) for pork/chicken friend rice, I have only made with chicken and it is hands down delicious, I use Basmati rice, and add a little more meat than the recipe calls for. I have tried a lot of fried rice recipes, and as simple as this one is, it is our hands down favorite, been making it once a week lately.

The original recipe is as follows, my twists are:

White or Brown Basmati rice
A little extra green onion
More like 1.5-2 cups chosen meat
Portabella Mushrooms (or mini bellas if on sale)
Pepper (I add at the right around the mushrooms being done, and use fresh cracked as everyone should :) )
I have been tempted to add garlic, but haven't yet, I use garlic so much it seems weird not adding it to something, however this is very delicious without it.

Pork/Chicken Fried Rice
Ingredients

2 tablespoons oil
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 cup bean sprouts
3 cups cold cooked rice
1 cup cold cooked pork, small dice
2 green onions with tops, sliced
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon oil
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

Heat oil in large skillet.
Saute mushrooms for 2 minutes.
Add bean sprouts, rice, pork, and onion.
Cook and stir for 6 minutes.
Push rice to the side of the skillet.
Add the 1 T oil; add eggs; cook and stir until eggs are thickened.
Stir eggs and rice together.
Stir in soy sauce and pepper.

Made the lemon sole for supper, didn't really get the "silky sauce" but the lemon flavor was delicious. Also I like to cook my fish a little less than you mention, the thin sole you typically buy only really needs 2-3 mins a side. Simple recipe and very delicious!!

I also made this recently. I got the silky sauce but it was too tart for my palate. I blame that on the lemon as some are "sweeter" than others. Next time I'll taste before adding it and throw in a pinch of sugar if needed.
