Reader Comments


A reader at More Thyme Than Dough recently left a comment at the Sly Lemon Pie recipe post. Actually, the comment was really a recipe.

This is what Crystal wrote: “That is such a funny coincidence. I just made the same thing this morning using mango juice concentrate and vanilla ice cream. I’ll be serving with a blueberry coulis.”

 Isn’t that a great recipe? What a delightfully fresh fruit combination. I wanted to share this with you in case you wanted to try it. I know I want to, and will!!!

Thank you for sharing, Crystal.!!!!

I really appreciate the comments you all leave. Several of you mentioned you too like the TV show, Burn Notice. I always knew visitors here have intelligence and class.

Thank you also for the many compliments about my writing. I only wish you had been my teachers when I was still in school.

Thank you also for the comments about the pictures I show with the recipes. I am glad you like them and find them helpful.

More Summer’s Bounty

I have done quite a few fruit recipes in the Summer’s Bounty series, so I think it is time I did a vegetable recipe. I know I did asparagus in the Spring Vegetables post several months ago, but I have another wonderful and quick and easy asparagus recipe that is simply delicious. It can be used as either a side dish or as a salad. This recipe comes from Cooking For One Is Fun, by Henry Lewis Creel. All I did was increase the amount of the ingredients.

Featured Recipe: Asparagus Vinaigrette 
This is what you will need for 3-4 people:

1 bunch of asparagus

Dressing Ingredients

4 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon wine vinegar*

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon chopped shallots

½ teaspoon minced parsley

Here is what you do:

Cut the woody ends off of the aspapragus.

Steam the asparagus till crisp tender. (I do this in the microwave. You can do it on the stove in a steamer basket.)

Mince the shallots and parsley.

Now assemble all of the dressing ingredients in a small jar with a lid.

* Mr. Creel does not say what kind of wine vinegar. I use red wine vinegar. Use what ever kind you like. I have played around with various wine vinegars, but my favorite is red wine vinegar.

Shake well, and pour over the asparagus. Serve at room temperature.


1 bunch of asparagus                        $1.78

4 tablespoons olive oil                       $0.70

1 teaspoon wine vinegar                   $0.05

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard                 $0.02

1 teaspoon chopped shallots             $0.18

½ teaspoon minced parsley              $0.05

Total Cost = $2.78
Cost per person for 3 people = $0.93

Sometimes I eat this as a meal with a whole grain roll and some butter. It is quite filling that way.

However you eat it, Bon Appetite!!!!
