31/05/2019 pork chop recipes

We eat a lot of pork in this family, even given my father’s Germanic background. Pork is healthy and lean, it’s easy to cook, versatile, and best of all its really economical! Buy thin pork chops and roll them up with a tasty stuffing made from mushrooms, bread crumbs, bleu cheese, and other delicious ingredients. Tender pork chops cooked in the slow cooker with onions, apple and cider, loosely based on the classic Normandy Pork.

Made 8 bone in chops in oven (had marinated them earlier to grill but was too stormy outside so used the oven). Sear the pork chops as-is, or slice them off the bone with a sharp knife for a more elegant presentation. If you like Pork Chops and also like to change things up on how you cook them, then I definitely recommend trying out this great version!

Venison Swedish Meatballs Recipe

31/05/2019 meatball recipe

The problem with meatballs is that their very name implies that meat is required to make them. I have a soup recipe with cream in and if I want to freeze it then I siphon off the amount I need for the meal, add cream and keep cooking, I freeze the rest and then when I want to use the frozen soup I defrost it and add the cream in the cooking process.meatball recipemeatball recipemeatball recipe

I parmesaned them after they cooked in the sauce and served with some plain French baguette for scooped open faced meatball subs. I make a lot and cook them and pop them into dinner sized amounts in freezer bags and use them on nights when time is short, just put the sauce (either the gravy recipe or the spaghetti sauce recipe) and the frozen meatballs into the crock pot.

Sizzling Shrimp Recipes

28/05/2019 shrimp recipes

I get the following question a lot so I thought it would be ideal to make it the highlight of this article. I hope we have more shrimp recipes to look forward to. Shrimp is my favorite seafood. The heat should be high, but not impossibly so- you want to cook the shrimp without too much charring. That way, you can re-learn how to think about ‘what’ and ‘how much’ you eat to lose and then maintain a healthy weight.shrimp recipes

This aromatic Coconut Curry Shrimp Recipe is full of flavor, yet quick and easy to make. Whatever you pair with this simple curry shrimp recipe, don’t forget to top it with chopped cilantro and a lime wedge to round out the flavors. That’s because it makes for a healthy dinner: low in fat and calories, high in protein, and a good way to get more omega-3’s in your diet.

The ancient Greeks cooked their flat breads called plankuntos outdoors on hot stones and topped them with fruits, nuts, and other vegetation for seasonings. From the first time I ate there, I noticed that she took a lot of care in cooking and presenting the dishes, making sure there was a good balance of colors. It was extra glorious right out of the oven (I caught my mom and uncle picking pieces off far before it was ready to be cut!), but I bet it it would be just as good toasted and spread with some butter or cream cheese.

But however informative they are, the handful that I encountered more than anything prove the difficulty of writing about kitchen science in a way that both grabs the reader and feels relevant to actually developing better cooking instincts...

Healthy Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

26/05/2019 ice cream recipes

In a medium heavy saucepan, heat cream until bubbles form just around the edge of the pan. I can’t wait to try this as I have been freezing bananas to make into my own ice cream” for ages. Blue Bunny® makes more ice cream sandwiches in a year than it takes to stretch across the Great Wall of China one and a quarter times—more than 100 million sandwiches!

Lighten up rice pudding for summer with vanilla soy milk, but add some extra creaminess at the end with spoonfuls of sweetened condensed milk. Remove the carton and, using a piece of string or dental floss, cut the ice cream in half lengthwise (long side to long side) and place the two layers side by side on a piece of waxed paper.ice cream recipes

Coconut milk gives it a dairy-like creaminess, but without the addition of any regular milk...

26/05/2019 cake recipes

I adapted this from a recipe that calls for creaming butter and sugar together as I can’t stand doing this. The frosting was amazing and I can see myself using it for lots of other cakes. And that is coming from someone who is not particularly fond of cake due to some very disgusting-tasting cakes I was forced to eat as a child (dry and with frosting that tasted like uber-sweet CHALK).

I can remember 50 years ago waking up in my gramma’s house to smell all the spices and goodness for carrot cake. Pour divided into prepared (as above) 9 inch cake pans, or 9 X 13 pan, or approximately 20 Cupcake liners filled 3/4 full or a 9 X 13 baking sheet sprayed with Pam but no parchment paper needed.cake recipes

Post your recipe and get notifications when other cooks review and add photos to it. I took the cake out when the top domed, and when a toothpick came out with just a couple of moist crumbs sticking to it (no batter). I’ve made this cake several times with hazelnut flour and it is just as delicious! I’ve made this cake a few times and love it but I need to double the recipe for a 33cm rectangle tin to get the depth of cake I want.chocolate cake recipe

Some even say it might go all the way back to the Indians who did make something very similar to the hoe cake, and many still do, called Indian fry bread or a Johnny cake. FYI, the frosting recipe ‘ganache’ in this cake does not require whipping the cream.

I don’t have a 30cm springform cake pan though, so I lined the bottom …

Italian Recipes

22/05/2019 meatball recipe

Nhu Lan make their own chicken liver pate (which they bake) and egg butter (like mayonnaise without vinegar or lemon). Last month, I had a breakthrough which I realize will not sound like anything wild, but the simple act of more than doubling the amount of egg I usually put in made a meatball that stayed together even if not fried first but that was still tender and completely amazing at the end.

So if the recipe calls for 2 tablespoons, I would use maybe 1 1/2 tablespoons, maybe a little less. If you can’t find lingonberry jelly, use cranberry or highbush cranberry jelly. Using clean hands, shape the meatballs into rounds, roll in the breadcrumbs and place the meatballs in miniature muffin tin cups.meatball recipe

You are never too old for ice cream It’s fine if you still have a soft spot for the scoop in the cone that you grew up eating. Dissolve baking soda in buttermilk just before adding to batter along with eggs and vanilla extract, mixing well. I would never submit to using milk in ice CREAM so I used 35 {45d44c7638c99d836c8a8cf1f9391ee9c1971410f5e14b7cf4fa6b38b3db838e} cream instead since I don’t care for ice crystals which is what you get if you use milk.
