    I recommend this dish

    We made this last night and it was awesome!
    From http://dinnerwithjulie.com/

    Roasted Chick Peas with Garlic and Chard

    Chick peas:
    1 19 oz. (540 mL) can chick peas (also known as garbanzo beans), rinsed and drained
    1 head of garlic, separated into cloves and peeled
    2 shallots or 3 green onions, roughly chopped
    2 bay leaves
    1/3 cup olive or canola oil [Richardson, Catharine] (I cut it down to a little less than 1/4 cup )

    Chard:
    2 Tbsp. olive or canola oil
    1 large bunch Swiss chard, center stems removed and leaves coarsely torn
    6 garlic cloves, crushed
    1/2 cup vegetable, chicken or beef broth

    Preheat oven to 400įF. In a baking dish or cast iron skillet, combine the chick peas, garlic, shallots or green onions, bay leaves and oil. Roast for about 45 minutes, shaking the pan once or twice, until everything is golden.

    If you used a cast iron skillet, pour the chick pea mixture into a bowl and set the skillet on the stove top. (Otherwise, pull out a skillet.) Drizzle with oil and when itís hot but not smoking, saute the chard and garlic for about 5 minutes, until itís wilted. Pour the stock overtop, cover and cook for another 10 minutes, until the chard is tender. Remove the lid and drain any excess liquid away.

    Add the chick pea mixture to the pan, season the whole thing with salt and pepper, toss around (add a little extra oil if you need to) until heated through, and serve

    Further notes from Julie
    "After making it close to ten times I have distilled the recipe somewhat - I roast the chick peas, garlic, oil and bay leaves (the last few times without onion), then take them out with a slotted spoon and saute the chopped chard in the uber-garlicky oil, then return the chick peas to the pan. No need for more garlic or chicken stock, really.

    This is a disgusting blog.
    I got as far as the tattered recipe for Chinese Cookies, thinking of the remainder of my working year going down the tubes as Brunos grocery across the street sucked the last banknotes out of my wallet, and then I got to the post with the photographs of the blue cheeses and fell off my chair, fainted, I think, with delight.

    I'll try your distilled garlicky chick peas, because chick peas is one of my staples, what I buy in huge bags from Bulk Barn.

    But I'm not looking at another recipe from that blog.
    Ever.

    Well, all right, just one more.

    The chocolate truffly things.
    I do have a tub of powdered cocoa ...

    I might add that photos like this don't help, either

    Oh. Well. Then you most definitely would not want to look at this page. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    As usual Jefferson, you're absolutely right.
    Your candies are sliced through, whereas Catherine's are bitten through.
    The image tells the story of quality.
    plus there's only part of one of Catherine's left, whereas your samplers seem to not have liked any one candy enough to finish it off.

    Catherine,

    Thank you very much for sharing this website. I am already planning on preparing some Sticky Drumsticks this weekend and the TourtiŤre Turnovers are definitely on my short list as well.

    Re: I recommend this dish

    she also references a lot of other great food/recipe blogs.

    I have an ever growing list based on my now faithful reading.

    But I like how she talks realistically about creating meals from ingredients she has on hand. Rather than a special shopping trip for each meal.

    Oink, oink!
    It's the sort of web site that could suck me right away from computers and back into the kitchen.

    creating meals from ingredients she has on hand....

    Exactly right! It is tiresome to see a recipe that really sounds good only to find in the list of ingredients, items that are totally non-existent in my pantry. And worse, hard to locate in the grocery. Thanks for the link! It's a keeper! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>
