This is a post from my son, Nathan, who is 9 years old. It’s his very first post!

 

When I grow up, I want to take over Steamy Kitchen and teach kids how to cook. Dad will like to teach kids how to garden and grow their own food with aquaponics.

But, I’m not going to talk with Dad about it right now, he’s very upset because 12 of the biggest koi fish just suddenty died.  He’s still trying to figure out what went wrong and is not in a very good mood right now.

I think that baking bread is important. My brother and I learned to bake bread when we were just 4 years old. A loaf of crusty heaven is what I call it.

We’ve decided that hamburger buns should be first on the list – a lot of kids love hamburgers and pork burgers and bacon burgers!

How to make hamburger buns by Nathan

Making the dough was really easy with the mixer. Just dump all of the ingredient inside and turn it on.

hamburger-bun-recipe-1933

Use the regular paddle first, until it gets a little sticky.

hamburger-bun-recipe-1938

Then you can change to a dough hook and let it knead for 3 minutes.

hamburger-bun-recipe-1942

The dough will look like this:

hamburger-bun-recipe-1947

Put it back into the bowl and cover with a towel. Let it sleep for at least 1 hour in a warm spot.

After the dough rests, then it will be a bigger like this:

Take the dough and flatten it and shape it like a square.

Cut in half.

Then cut in a total of 8 equal pieces.

Then roll them into a ball.

Then flatten them into a hamburger bun shape. Kind of squatty.

hamburger-bun-recipe-1956

Brush with some melted butter.

hamburger-bun-recipe-1957

Bake at 375F for 15-18 minutes until nice and brown.

And then you cut in half and have hamburgers! Or salmon burgers! Or pork burgers! Or bacon burgers!

Meyer Lemon Clouds with Lemon Whipped Cream and Fresh Blueberries

by Miri Leigh

Oh, what an honor it is to be guest posting here on Steamy Kitchen! You’re probably wondering who I am and what I’m all about. Obviously, I’m all about food, probably just like you. I’ve been cooking and baking since I was old enough to push a stool up against the kitchen cabinets and pull down my older sister’s long-since-abandoned 1960s Betty Crocker Cookbook for Boys and Girls. As the child of working parents, I used to come home from school to bake chocolate chip cookies while my younger sister played in the other room with Barbies. Later I went to culinary school and then owned my own business making wedding cakes and birthday cakes. Today, as a blogger [ttp://www.mirileigh.com/], develop recipes, teach pastry classes, and occasionally make (very amateur!) cooking videos that I post on YouTube [http://www.youtube.com/user/miriamleigh?feature=mhum]. Recently, I’ve starred in two pilot television projects for cooking programs and am hoping (hoping, hoping, hoping!) for a network deal soon.

I’m a food person. I’m an eater. I’m a gardener. I’m a teacher. I love to make beautiful things that taste good to eat, and I love to bring together the people I care about for seasonal, healthy meals. I love the connections and conversation that are fostered by food and the togetherness of eating.

And another thing I am? A brunch-a-holic. I love the concept in general – sunshine, good friends, plenty of food, and… an excuse to overeat early in the day when there’s still time to nap work it off later. There are dozens of excuses to host a brunch this time of year, Easter of course being the first one that comes to mind. But if you can’t wait for the holiday, or if you don’t happen to celebrate it, just pick any ol’ sunny Sunday morning to whip up a hearty meal, invite some friends over, and pull some chairs out onto the patio. That’s what I do pretty much every chance I get. You see, I live in a tiny cottage apartment that isn’t even big enough for a kitchen table, let alone formal dining. If I have friends over for an evening meal we eat on the couch, a couple of folding chairs and some cushions on the floor. But what I do have is a garden. And a patio. So brunch is pretty grand. I set a formal table outdoors (as formal as an outdoor table might be, anyway), break out my grandmother’s silver, and pop open a bottle of champagne.

And for dessert, always my signature springtime favorite: Meyer lemon clouds with lemon whipped cream and fresh blueberries. They’re light, perfectly sweet and require less than ten ingredients. Brunch just isn’t the same without them.

Meyer Lemon Clouds with Lemon Whipped Cream and Fresh Blueberries Recipe

Servings: 6 Prep Time: Cook Time:
recipe for meyer lemon clouds whipped cream blueberries

Recipe from Miri Leigh.

Ingredients:

For the meyer lemon clouds:
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
3 large eggs, separated
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons fresh Meyer lemon juice
2 tablespoons finely grated Meyer lemon peel
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons 2% milk at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon saltFor the whipped cream:
1 cup chilled heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon finely grated lemon peel
2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 cup fresh, washed blueberries for garnish

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter six 3/4-cup custard cups or ramekins. Combine just 1/2 cup sugar, egg yolks, flour, lemon juice, and lemon peel in large bowl; whisk until well blended. Whisk in milk.

Using electric mixer, beat egg whites and salt in medium bowl until frothy. Gradually add remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and beat until soft peaks form. Fold beaten egg whites into lemon mixture in 2 additions. Divide mixture among prepared custard cups. Place custard cups in roasting pan. Pour enough hot water into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of custard cups. Bake puddings until tops are golden and spring back when lightly touched, about 30 minutes. Remove cups from water and set aside to cool.

To prepare the whipped cream, combine the whipping cream, sugar, grated lemon peel, and fresh lemon juice in a chilled bowl and beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.

Serve each “cloud” warm or chilled, topped with the whipped cream and a handful of fresh blueberries.
