Green Beans with Sesame Dressing

9 ounces green beans

Sesame Dressing:
1 ounce white sesame seeds
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon sake
1 teaspoon sugar

Clean green beans and cut into 1 inch lengths. Simmer in boiling water or steam until cooked to taste. Drain and cool. Toast the sesame seeds in a hot dry frying pan until they start to pop. You want the color to darken only very slightly. When they're ready, you should be able to smell them. Whizz the toasted sesame seeds to a rough paste in a blender, there should still be some texture to it. Stir in the soy sauce, sake and sugar. When the beans are cool, arrange them attractively on a large dish and drizzle the dressing on top.

Powdered lemon rind is hard to find and pretty expensive in Scotland.

Blend well and store in a glass salt shaker. Add a few grains of rice to stop moisture.

Be vigilant, whilst cleaning up I found a small salt cellar in a strange place, behind a cushion on my lounge sofa. Of course it must have been there since the whole family were here at Christmas mmmm?

For a quick side I cut each squash in half lengthwise put a little salt and pepper on then and put them in a shallow dish with some water in it and microwave them until fork tender.

Again I need help for an upcoming event. I have hundreds of dessert and cake recipes but can’t decide. What I need is something to awe the crowd that doesn’t take me two days to make. I’m sure all of you out have been there. How did you solve it? Help appreciated.

For Boots who inquired about Trisha Yearwood’s gravy. The ratio for making the gravy is 4-4-2. This would be 4 tbsp . pan drippings, 4 tbsp. flour. Stir in skillet till flour has browned. Add two cups liquid meaning broth, milk, or water. Season with salt and pepper and any other seasoning you like. Stir till thickened. That is the basic idea but can be varied with additions of seasonings and the liquid.

Does anyone have a recipe for Mini Cheesecakes using a whole Oreo cookie as the base? My husband had them at a work function and he has been raving about them. They were topped with some sort of cherry stuff but he didn't think it was cherry pie filling. Thanks for your help.

For Grams: I make rivels just as you said with an egg and a little salt and stir in flour till the egg will absorb no more flour. It will be a very dry dough, not soft or kneadable. Then I rub pieces of that dough between my palms as though you were warming or washing your hands. Do this over your boiling soup or broth and it should fall into the pot as little pieces not much bigger than grains of rice. It cooks quickly and tastes very similar to homemade noodles and also thickens the broth nicely. I have heard of methods that force the dough through a potato ricer or a sieve, but the traditional and simplest method is rubbing.
