Kumquat Nut Bread

Lipby and I went to Florida this past winter to visit his parents. We arrived, coincidentally enough, during the Kumquat Festival, and we just had to go.

Iris got this from an employee of hers.  “It’s fast, cheap and good!” she says (adding with a sarcastic grin, “Much like me!”)   She also says with absolutely no hesitation that it’s much much better than the Empress’ Caesar Salad dressing. I don’t necessarily agree with that, but I’ll be damned if I’m going pass [...]

The Empress’ Caesar Salad

serves 6 The Empress retrieved this recipe from a restaurant in Cancun, Mexico, where it was mixed at her table without measurements, straight from bottles and jars.  She has refined it through long practice to a high art.  She claims to have traded it for others all over the world.  Do not question the veracity [...]
