Recipes owed...

I owe Beth, Mom and Julie recipes, so I thought I'd direct them here.

For my older (but littler) sister Beth and my mom:

Ginger Vinaigrette Dressing

Category: Sauces & dressings
Yield: 12 servings of 2 Tbsp.

1/4 c. water
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. canola oil
1/4 c. cider vinegar
1/4 c. honey - (or equivalent amount of agave nectar)
1 1/2 Tbsp. fresh ginger - (I used the stuff in a tube - sorry! I was in a hurry)
2 tsp. stone ground mustard

Add all ingredients to the blender except the oil. MIx well, then slowly add the oil to emulsify. I did add 1/4 tsp. of Guar Gum to hold the emulsification. I did not have to shake the dressing even a week after mixing.

For Julie (This is the way I made it when your daughter babysat - more like bread pudding than French Toast, if you ask me!):

Non-Dairy Baked French Toast

Yield: 12 servings

1 (16-ounce) loaf French bread
8 eggs
2 (15-ounce) cans coconut milk
1/4 cup sugar

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

Cut the bread into 1 1/2-inch slices. Arrange the slices in a single layer in a lightly greased 9x13-inch baking pan. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl until blended. Whisk in the milk, 1/4 cup of the sugar and vanilla.

Pour the egg mixture over the bread. Dot with the butter. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with maple syrup.

For Julie, too:

Marinated Flank Steak

Category: Meat
Yield: 4 servings

1 1/2 lb beef flank steak
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. ginger
1 clove garlic

Put all ingredients in a 1 gallon zip lock bag. I stick it in the freezer for later use OR will marinate for at least one hour.

Either grill or broil for about 7 minutes on each side. Let rest for 5 minutes, covered with foil so the juices settle down. The grain will be obvious (running length-wise). Slice against the grain on the oblique (at a diagonal).

Julie, I still owe you the Low Glycemic Chocolate Chip Muffin Recipe. A friend borrowed the cookbook and hasn't returned it yet (I won't name said friend here to avoid embarrassment.)
