Aïoli Provençal


Eric & Cécile’s
L Aïoli Provençal
*******

Serves 10
Cécile Crosnier and Eric Villalonga invited the Aglaure’s, Stan and I, Daniel Hieremente, Devin, and Gil’s mother, Paulette, over for dinner in Cannes, France.  They served us this AMAZING Aioli.  What a spread!  Paulette had fractured her foot days earlier, so Gil had to carry her piggy-back into their apartment in Mougins, near Cannes.  We laughed so much.
Dinner started at about 10 and we left at 1 a.m.
This is the recipe that Cécile mailed to me from France.
My nephew, Dwight, later had the opportunity to meet them, teach them and take them to church
when he was a missionary in the Toulouse, France mission.

10 cloves garlic
2 egg yolks
Pinch of salt
2 pints (1 litre) olive oil
*
Boiled salt cod
*
Steamed vegetables:
Potatoes
Carrots
Green beans
Beets
Artichokes or cauliflower
Hard-boiled eggs

1.     Steam vegetables, and prepare salt cod.
2.     Using a pestle and mortar, pound garlic and add egg yolks and a pinch of salt. 
3.     Gradually add olive oil.  Stirring in the same direction with the pestle until a thick mayonnaise forms.  Should the sauce begin to curdle, add a spoonful of hot water.
4.     Serve in a bowl with all of the traditional accompaniments (vegetables, eggs, etc)

I have no idea how she steamed everything to turn out perfectly tender!

Easter Babies (Croatian Easter Bread Dolls)

  Easter Babies                                                     ******* Makes 12 Easter Babies These Easter Babies (Croatian Easter bread dolls a.k.a.   primorski uskrsne bebe )  are a new tradition in our family. The egg dying, dough mixing and braiding is so fun for children and grownups—it’s contagious. Traditionally, they are made with red-dyed eggs, but we use the colors we already have dyed. They make sweet gifts and they also look charming laying next to each Easter dinner plate.  This lady  uses naturally dyed eggs for her Easter babies. If you're already making  challa bread , use extra challa dough for these babies (simply make enough dough for 2 loaves, only bake one challa, and use the remaining dough for the Easter Babies).

How to Freeze Avocados to Use in Smoothies

                                              How to Freeze Avocados to Use in Smoothies We add an avocado to our daily smoothies, but it's nearly impossible to have a "just right" ripe avocado every day since they go bad quickly. Sometimes we only needed half an avocado. Here's a simple way: a smooth purée. For every avocado you need 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and it keeps its bright green color if you purée it rather than mash it like you would for guacamole. Each avocado = 3/4 cup purée (12 tablespoons). Sometimes I will make a big batch, like 18 avocados, so I need over 1 cup lemon juice for that quantity of purée (4 tablespoons = 1/4 cup). Now it's easy to have that daily avocado! 6 avocados, ripe 6 TBL lemon juice, fresh-squeezed 6 sandwich-sized zip-loc plastic bags  1 ice-cream scoop that measures 1/4-cup servings 1 large tray Wash avocados. Make a cut around each avocado starting at the stem end, and cut all the way around. Twist to

Or coconut milk) 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted (more for greasing your griddle or pan) 1 tsp vanilla extract The How To’s Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Mix the wet ingredients together in a bowl. Add the wet to the dry and whisk well. Refrigerate for about 10-20 minutes. If the batter is too thick just add a spoon full of milk at a time until it’s the proper consistency. It should be about as thick as a muffin batter. Heat your griddle to 350 degrees. Add some coconut oil to your griddle to keep the pancakes from sticking. Use a 3/4 oz ice cream scoop or a large tablespoon to drop the batter on the greased griddle. Cool for about 2-3 minutes then flip carefully and cook an additional 2-3 minutes. Keep
