Bake Desserts

Cherry Salad – two words you might think don’t belong together, make my heart sing! My family always adds the 8 ounces of cream cheese and cup of powdered sugar creamed with the cool whip…then we freeze it in cupcake papers for individual servings. To make the cake batter, in a medium saucepan over low heat, stir together the remaining 5 ounces of bittersweet chocolate and the butter until melted and smooth.

I made it for Easter & am going to make it again to take camping for Memorial Wknd. This impressive restaurant-quality dessert is surprisingly easy to whip up at home. We’re going loco for the coconut dessert recipes as summer rolls in—everything from coconut-pandan cake to coconut cookies and coconut ice cream.

It’s another messily delicious pastry fest, its golden brown top scattered with fennel seeds. Spoon batter into a zip-lock bag or pastry bag and then secure …

4 Gift Ideas for Aspiring Chefs

Attempting to find the perfect gift for an aspiring chef can be an arduous task. There are so many cooking tools and accessories to choose from, it can be overwhelming to choose the perfect gift.

To simplify this task, here are 4  gift ideas for aspiring chefs:

Chef Coat. Obviously, the first thing an aspiring chef needs is a chef coat. Designed to protect the chest and stomach from hot liquids and to protect clothes from stains and smells, this coat is a must-have item. These coats are usually some type of polyester and cotton blend with long or short sleeves. These coats retail for as little as $15 and are also available in various colors and sizes.

Chef Knife. Every great chef needs a great knife. The way that ingredients are cut can alter the taste and texture of food. The Duo-Glide knife from Dexter is 8 …

Vegan Crunk

Today’s post was actually yesterday’s post until I mentioned that my sister-n-law shared her recipe with me back in January at which point a profusion of thoughts and memories of events surrounding that month suddenly whirled around my brain and flowed out onto the paper, or technically speaking, the monitor. So what I think you’ll learn, as I did, is to use the Weight Watchers point system as a guide, a great starting point, but not to obsess whether the specific values are right on, or not, ESPECIALLY for what is obviously a low-calorie healthful soup or salad or whatever.vegan recipes

We stayed at a sweet spot near South Congress, and on our morning walk we came across this beautiful cafe called Manana They always have at least one vegan baked good for sale, great coffee (with nondairy milk choices), and they carry this very lovely and fancy local brand of …

5 Simple Mexican Sauces ~ Drick's Rambling Cafe

Spiked with cayenne, this addictive chili recipe is easy enough to throw together on a weeknight. If you enjoy making freezer meals, I would suggest using the first recipe as it freezes well for future meals. Cook it in a crock pot or Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring, until the meat is done. It’s best to let it simmer uncovered, but that’s totally impractical because it sputters and bubbles and makes a big chili mess.

Boneless chicken breasts and a variety of canned beans make the chili super easy and convenient. Rachael fuses two camping classics — chili and baked beans — for a smoky, bacon-infused main dish. Dry beans are about half the cost and don’t contain all the sodium that the canned varieties do. To cook your beans: Soak beans in a large pan for at least 6 hours, or overnight.

Add the onion and garlic, and …

Easy Chili Recipe

There’s something about eating a nice, hearty bowl of chili that warms us down to our toes. This is a quick and delicious low fat chili recipe that chili lovers will devour. After numerous creative but pretty dissatisfying attempts to make some really SOUL satisfying, gourmet chili over the past few years, I resorted to telling her what I remembered learning to make as a teenager at home.

I would recommend soaking the kidney beans overnight to ensure they are cooked properly. Add onion, garlic, red bell pepper, chili powder, cumin, coriander, oregano, red pepper flake, and cayenne pepper. Stir salsa, chili powder, cumin, salt, black pepper, paprika, and cayenne pepper into the broth; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook at a simmer until the chicken is tender and no longer pink in the center, about 20 minutes.

Untamed Outdoors

Cook first 4 ingredients in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until beef crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. A single serving of black beans contains 100 percent of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for folate and 14 grams of fiber. When beef is browned and peppers and onions are softened, add the rest of the ingredients. Actress Katherine Heigl makes a hearty four-bean chili that’s perfect for fall and for feeding lots of people.

You can use coarse or regular ground beef, stewing beef, or a mixture of ground beef and ground pork or bulk sausage. Due to the saltiness of the hot sauce, I don’t find it necessary to add any salt to the chili outside of what goes into the meatballs. Start saving time and money in your kitchen with these easy family-friendly recipes, packed with flavor.

Pick from our wide selection of dessert recipes including homemade ice-cream, mousse and cheesecake that will make the ultimate after-dinner treat. Add dry ingredients to butter and sugar mixture, beating gently until well combined. The great news is I think this homemade sour cream tastes even better than store bought. The milk bun is soft but still still sturdy enough to hold the chicken, salad, sriracha and pudding of molten smoked mozzarella cheese.

For Filling – In a mixing bowl, blend together Ricotta and Mascarpone cheese to mix well and remove lumps. If your kiddos or friends have food allergies, these vegan and gluten-free cookies are a great dessert alternative. Guaiwei strange flavour sauce is straight outta Sichuan province, more commonly used with cold chicken, but oddly complementary against the cold creamy lusciousness of mozzarella …

Ultimate Vanilla Ice Cream

If you’re thinking that I’ve already posted a video recipe for vanilla ice cream, I have, but for what I consider a real” vanilla ice cream, which means no eggs. WHITE CHOCOLATE: Use white chocolate chips in place of the mini chocolate chips. I’m so into it, in fact, I recently brought some in a tea thermos along to the movies and I couldn’t have been happier (or warmer) sipping my golden milk during the film. However, it also increases the likelihood of iciness as the ice cream sits in the freezer, so we recommend eating this the same day you make it.

Don’t let its stark white color fool you: Hints of peach preserve help add subtle flavor to Alton’s vanilla ice cream. Hi Anna, I really enjoy you series The Free Range Cook- currently showing on our TV. I tried your Lemon-and ginger- ice cream and every one was …

A Special Meal For My Valentine

Last summer when we were visiting my sister in Oregon one of her neighbors had some overflowing cherry trees and we were offered whatever we could pick! After quite a number of batches, I was finally happy with my homemade Mango Ice Cream. Egg-Free Ice Cream, from the Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams cookbook, has become so popular it warrants its own bullet point. The ice cream is very rich, and the next time, I will try foregoing the additional 1/4 of sugar.

And from the snowy fields back to the Homemade Mango Ice Cream (honestly, I have to suppress a laugh it must look so ridiculous to you!). Combined with maple syrup, coconut milk and a hint of vanilla, it makes a treat so lovely, you’ll never want to stop eating it.
