Burmese Golden Egg Curry

To all the shakshuka lovers out there:  I think you guys are really really going to like this one.  It’s the same basic format as the famous Israeli and North African dish, with eggs nestled in a fiery, chile pepper-laced tomato sauce. But that’s where the similarities end.  Instead of cracking uncooked eggs into the sauce,

40 Cloves of Garlic Quiche

The bar, my friends, has officially been raised. From this point forward, this quiche will be the benchmark against which all others will be judged.   But I should have known that magic would ensue when you combine forty cloves of sweet, caramelized garlic and tangy goat cheese and then surround it with rich and creamy

Julia Child’s Quiche Lorraine, Gluten-Free

I’ve noticed over the past year and a half that I tend to shy away from trying and posting recipes from the revered masters, which means you won’t find many of Diana Kennedy, Marcella Hazan or Julia Child’s recipes on Girl Cooks World. Partially because most of their recipes have been blogged to death already

Roasted Balasamic Strawberry Parfait

For years I’ve been hearing about how strawberries and balsamic are an amazing flavor combination.  And just recently came the slew of roasted strawberry recipes from food blogs, or food blogger cookbooks.  Since I’m behind the times on both, I thought I’d kill two birds with one stone in order to get myself up to

Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes with Fresh Strawberries

Over the past year or so ricotta has transitioned away from being something I use only in lasagna or stuffed shells to being a favorite baking ingredient.  Ricotta is an essential ingredient in Nonna’s Lemon-Ricotta Muffins and these Mini Ricotta Doughnuts with Bittersweet Chocolate and Salted Caramel Dipping Sauces, magically keeping things light and moist.

Lättyjä- Finnish Gluten-Free Buttermilk Crepes

It’s pretty much impossible not to have positive memories associated with crepes.  Whether you’re strolling down a Parisian cobblestone street with a banana and Nutella crepe from a street vendor (or one from this great/creepy clown themed creperie.. trust me, it’s not a place for the anybody with coulrophobia) or just enjoying a stack at

Jamaican Festival Fried Cornbread

Some of you might remember that my last attempt at fried cornmeal fritters didn’t go so well.  But try, try again I say.  Plus, with a name like festival, I had the feeling that these might be just the things to turn my cornmeal fritter luck around. Festival is new but popular addition to the

Pan Boxty, Irish Potato Pancake

I’m sure you guys realized that a potato recipe would be coming sooner or later.  One of Ireland’s favorite ways to use their most famous vegetable is by making boxty.  Boxty recipes vary widely: some included mashed potatoes or milk while others didn’t and some had just a smidgen of flour while others included more
