Put the mixture back in the cooler for another 30 minutes and then hammer again with the exceptional bite into the meat processor. And it will give you a clean surface and will limit any cartilaginous bits.

Add everything left over from the dark pepper, wine, and vinegar. Mix at this time with a Kitchenaid either for 60-90 seconds or with your (flawless) hands. And it is essential to bind the sausage legitimately.

If it is well mixed, put it back in the fridge. Stuff the sausage in the casing. Unwind the joints by pressing the sausage down and bending

First in one direction and then with the following compound, then the other. Or you could tie her again with the butcher’s cord.

Hang the sausages in a cool place for up to 4 hours (the colder it is, the more you can hang). If it is warm, swing for 60 minutes. When they are a little dried, place the fridge until they are needed.

You will stay in the fridge for no less than seven days. If you have the sausages cold, hold several days before doing so.

This will take care of the sausages and help them keep their shape in the deep hold

Cajun Style Andouille Sausage Links

Andouille Sausage Links, Cajun Sty

 

Ingredients

  • One container of onion, diced
  • One tablespoon of fat or nut oil
  • 3 1/2 pounds of game, pork, hamburgers or other meats
  • 1/2 pound pork belly or oily shoulder
  • 33 grams of salt, about three tablespoons
  • Store 4 grams of Instacure # 1, about a teaspoon
  • 25 grams dry drain, approx. 1/3 glass (optional)
  • Three tablespoons chopped crispy garlic
  • Two teaspoons of cayenne pepper
  • Two tablespoons sweet pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • Two teaspoons of dried thyme
  • One teaspoon of mustard powder
  • Add 1/2 container of red wine or brew

 

Directions

Heat the fat or nut oil in a small sautéed container and cook the onions over medium heat until tender, translucent and slightly caramelized at the edges.

Remove from the pan and let cool. While the onions are cooking, take about 10 to 15 feet of the casing (regular three lengths) and immerse them in warm water.

Make sure you emit as much Silverskin as your meat might expect. Slice the meat and fat into 1 to 2-inch pieces.

Granulate the onions, meat, and fat through the course bite the dust. Andouille is usually a nation-style, rough sausage.

If you want, you can even crush the meat by hand. TIP: Mince 1/4 of the meat-fat mixture to get an extra exciting surface for your sausage.

Make sure that the mixture is exceptionally crisp, about 30  -degree F. You will probably need to consolidate it for some time.

When it is sufficiently cold, take it out and put the chilled red wine or brew in the bowl and mix the lowest setting for 90 seconds to 2 minutes or with your perfect hands for 2 minutes and it turns the improved minced meat into a robust sausage.

The appearance of the meat will change as it binds to itself, and it will look more like a fat player than minced meat and fat.

To make links, tie off one end of a package. Pack the sausage in to fill this end. Gently pack the meat into the end joint and this second one.

Turn the second link more than a few times to repair it. Move the lockdown and make two more links.

This time, fold the link back to you to fix the problem. Repeat this process in the loop to the point you get to the end. Bind the end link.

Clean up with the different housings. Hang your sausages dry for an hour or more.

Hang for 1 to 2 hours at room temperature or until medium term where your temperatures are below 45-degrees F.

Such as with a 10mm or 12mm plate, and refrigerate it in the medium term. To stuff, mix the beef, lemon cheer, grease, celery seeds – black pepper, garlic, and basil.

Why only half? You have to add the rest before you make the last mix on the sausage. As a result, the flavors remain larger, and the surface of the sausage is adjusted, which makes the food even more interesting.

Chill the meat to the point that it is 37-degrees F or colder by placing it in the cooler for an hour or close. When you have finished chopping, solidify the sausage until it is near 28-degrees F and 32-degrees F.

At the time when it’s prepared, contain whatever remains of the dark pepper, basil, and garlic

In addition to the wine and lemon juice, mix at this time either entirely with a Kitchenaid on low for 60 to 90 seconds or with your (flawless) Hands for 2 minutes and essential to bind the sausage legitimately.

If it is well mixed, put it back in the icebox while you clean up. Fill the sausage into the casings.

Unwind the links by pressing down the sausage and twisting first in one go and then with the following link.

Or, on the other hand, you could tie them with the butcher’s cord. Make sure you penetrate the packaging wherever there are air pockets and carefully crumble the links to deflate.

Hang the sausages in a cool place for up to 4 hours (the colder it is, the more you can hang). If it is warm, hover for 60 minutes.

When they are a little dried, place the fridge until they are needed. You will stay in the refrigerator for no less than seven days.

Cut the meat slightly better and do the same thing will give you a closer bond in the finished sausage.

Take out some hoard cases and place them in a bowl of warm water. When ready to granulate, mix the meat and fat with each of the herbs and flavors.

If you use the dry effluent powder, mix it in too. Pump through the meat processor (you can use a nutritional processor if necessary

Greek Loukaniko Sausage

Greek Loukaniko Sausage

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound of sheep or venison ingredients
  • 2 1/2 pounds of pork or wild boar
  • 1 pound of pork fat
  • 32 grams of real salt, about three tablespoons
  • 4 grams Instacure # 1, add 1 teaspoon (discretion)
  • 25 grams of sugar, adjusted to 2 tablespoons
  • Five tablespoons chopped new garlic
  • One tablespoon of ground coriander seeds
  • One tablespoon broke dark pepper
  • Two tablespoons of fennel seeds
  • One tablespoon of powdered dried oregano
  • Two teaspoons of dried thyme
  • Three tablespoons ground new orange get-up-and-go
  • 1/2 container of white or red wine

 

Directions

Split your pork and sheep into 1-inch pieces. Add the salt, salt (if used) and refill sugar and chop it by a rough run on the processor.

If possible, refrigerate for at least 60 minutes in the medium term. The progression promotes the sausage binding itself when stuffed.

Put 1/2 cilantro, pepper and fennel seeds in a small bowl. Splash your hoard case in warm water. Put the wine in the fridge.

Make sure all your shredders are cold. Mix the rest of the flavors with the meat and fat and pound the meat a second time in a bowl.

You can beat again roughly or walk well. Your decision. I make the cream. Place the bowl for the meat in another pan loaded with ice if your room is hotter than 70ºF.

When ground, place the meat in the cooler and clean up. Get out your blender and locate the main rudder (not the dough loop).

If you do not have one, place the meat mixture in a large container so you can mix it by hand.

Soak up the orange topping, the rescued flavors, and the wine and combine the sausage for about 2 minutes or until it forms a sticky, strong glue.

If you do it with your hands, you should knock it out of the cold. Get your sausage stuffer, which, if you were smart, has lived in your cooler or cooler for as far back as two hours.

Adjust it with the appropriate tube and fill the sausage. Do it all without a moment’s delay before joining it into joins.

To bend in joints, start towards one side and pack the meat in the packaging, at which point you bind the packaging.

Assign a decent measured link, press at this point with your fingers. Do the same another great valued marriage the Locke.

When you have compressed both, turn a few times to secure the link well. Rattle over to the line of the lock, at this point also bind off the last link after packing.

Once you’re done, hang up the links so your curvature will not be untangled or tie each loop to a string.

Hang your sausages in an ordinary room for about 2 hours. Only 1 hour if the place is hotter than 75ºF. In a perfect world, in the medium term, hang the links at around 40ºF.

How to Make Perfect Pasta : Steps and Procedure

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:21 am

If you love fresh tasty pasta you gotta make it yourself but the question that lingers is – How to Make Perfect Pasta?

Sometimes we get it all wrong when we think that whipping the best batch of silky-smooth fettuccine is meant for the pros.

Well, making perfect pasta is pretty simple and doesn’t require professional skills. With a few practices here and there you will be amazed at what you can achieve.

When it comes to pasta making, the several series of instructors can be very confusing. In fact, chances are, you will get more disoriented after doing a quick search through the pasta recipes, ingredients recommended and the ratios.

Well, let me make it pretty simple for you. There is nothing called the perfect pasta nor does it exist. That doesn’t mean there is no difference between the watery stuff that just breaks your mood and the silky-smooth tasty pasta.

What I actually mean is that there are hundreds if not thousands of pasta types that exist. Feeling completely ripped after trying it all and you don’t seem to get there? Well, pasta comes in different shapes, texture, and shapes.

Most importantly, there are perhaps a hundred plus styles for mixing the ingredients. Therefore, we cannot settle on one pasta type and simply rebrand it as the best. We could perhaps be insane to do that!

 

Steps to Make Perfect Pasta

Well, let me take you through the science of pasta making and break down the main steps as follows:

 

  • Ingredients
  • Mixing & kneading the dough
  • Resting dough
  • Rolling
  • Cooking

 

Well, before we go into that, I guess it is better to know what we need to make pasta.  Even though there are several pasta making tools existing in the market today, many of them are completely unnecessary.

As long as you got eggs, flour, a rolling pin, and a working surface, you are good to go.

 

Ingredients

We all know that the basic ingredients for making pasta include flour and water. The other manipulations such as eggs to yolk to white ratio, salt, olive oil and much more are just beyond the basics.

What am going to talk about is the flour because it is the major ingredient here and therefore determines the end results. Flours are categorized into:

 

  • All-purpose flour
  • Semolina

 

For the purpose of this guide, I am going to use all-purpose flour. You can dig deeper and understand much more. However, kindly note that most folks use a mixture of type “00” flour and semolina.

 

Eggs and Oil

The debate over white eggs, egg yolks, and oil will definitely vary across pasta makers. However, pasta made with both of them gains more golden color, flavor and doesn’t break apart easily.

 

Olive oil, on the other hand, makes for the softer and mushier recipes. Assume I have the following ingredients:

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 egg whites (beaten)
  • 2 egg yolks (beaten)
  • ½ tablespoon water
  • Large pinch of salt

 

The procedure for making Perfect Pasta

 

  • Mix everything together, the flour, salt, and the eggs on the working surface. If you have a mixer the work will be much simpler.

 

  • Alternatively, you can use a fork to combine the eggs and the flour. Mix the dough with hands until it gets clumpy.

 

  • Make circular motions using your fingertips while stirring the flour. Stir until you achieve a dough you can bring together.

 

  • Add more water if the dough is too dry and more flour if it is too soft. Continue kneading to the point where the dough springs back when poked.

 

  • Wrap the dough in a damp cloth and allow one or two hours of rest.

 

  • Next, unwrap the dough and flatten it. Focus on one edge so the pasta can be rolled through the pasta maker

 

 

  • Run the dough through the machine repeating the process in each setting for a smoother silky pasta.

 

  • Repeat the process as you adjust the settings to the thinnest. Dust the rollers and your hands to avoid the pasta from sticking.

 

  • When you finally get the pasta of your desired thickness, use the cutting attachment to cut the pasta into strips.

 

  • When you have made enough of these strips, hand them on a pasta hanger and allow them to dry.

 

  • You can decide to cook them or store them in the freezer.

 

Well, that is the complete procedure for making the perfect pasta. Within a few weeks into practicing the same, you will become a pro and develop intuitive pasta making skills. All the best!

Spinach Lasagna and Turkey Sausage Pasta Bake

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:15 am

Spinach Lasagna

I have only made lasagna once or twice before this. So I was a bit nervous and wanted to do something different since I am not a fan of meat lasagna and so I decided to make spinach lasagna.

I took the good parts of a few recipes that sounded tasty and came up with this. It actually turned out super delicious, even though it looked a mess!

 

Ingredients:

  • Lasagna Noodles (I used about 14)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Chopped mushrooms: 1 cup
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 3 to 4 cups fresh spinach
  • 3 cups cottage cheese
  • Dried oregano: 1 teaspoon
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt: 1 teaspoon
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3 cups pasta sauce
  • 1 ½ cup grated parmesan cheese

 

spinach lasagna

Directions

That list seems much longer now after typing it all out! Most of these are ingredients I keep on hand at all times but feel free to take away or add to this recipe as you see fit.

Also, you can use ricotta cheese instead of cottage cheese. I’m not a fan of ricotta cheese, it’s too rich for me.

Cottage cheese is also a bit healthier, but use whichever you prefer. As for the pasta sauce, you can use any type you want. It really doesn’t matter so use what you like!

First, you need to preheat your oven to 350°. Now you want to get your lasagna noodles going. You could use the kind of noodles that don’t require you to boil them first.

In fact, I would highly recommend it because the worst part about doing this lasagna was the stupid noodles.

I am no expert and since I never make lasagna, it was an adventure, to say the least. I’d suggest not boiling your lasagna noodles until you have almost everything else ready.

My noodles took about 8 minutes until they were al dente, which is about how you want them. While your water is boiling, sauté your mushrooms, onion, and garlic in olive oil over medium to high heat.

I used less than I have listed because I have mushrooms and onions in my sauce and didn’t want to overdo it.

You just want to get these tender. Drain the excess liquid once you are done and put them in a bowl to cool.

Now you want to get your spinach ready. Clean it and cut off any big stems. You can cook your spinach in a few different ways, but I prefer to use a sauté pan.

You could also boil the spinach. If you choose to sauté it, just add it to the pan you had the mushrooms, onion, and garlic in. It doesn’t take too long to cook.

You can either cover it and let it cook up for about 1 minute, or you can stir it around until all of the leaves have shrunk and turn a dark green.

Also, I used about 2 ½ cups of spinach and I wish I had used more. It might look like a lot before you cook it, but it isn’t! I would definitely suggest using 3 to 4 cups of fresh spinach.

Once your spinach is done, make sure you drain it well. This is probably what I didn’t do correctly, so learn from my mistake! Squeeze the heck out of your spinach. Once it is well drained, chop it up.

Now you want to combine your cottage cheese, ½ cup of your parmesan cheese, spinach, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, and egg. Mix it all up.

Now you have everything ready to go. Grease a 9×13 pan and layer your noodles…

Ok, I need to make a note here! I pushed my noodles to the top of the pan and added part of a lasagna noodle at the bottom.

You want to make sure your pan is well covered with the noodles. My camera has been having some issues lately, so I guess that picture went to picture heaven. Ok, so now put about a third of your cottage cheese and spinach mix….

Followed by 1 cup of your mozzarella cheese and ⅓ cup parmesan cheese… And then, spread 1 cup of your sauce…

Make two more layers then top with noodles. I put sauce on my top layer and I would have put more cheese, but I ran out (bummer!).

Finish it off however you’d like and then cover with foil. You need to bake this for about an hour. I was iffy about this spinach lasagna… until I took a bite.

It’s not picture perfect, but I am telling you, the spinach and cottage cheese mix was awesome! My husband absolutely loved it, which is a huge plus!

 

Turkey Sausage Pasta Bake

Ironically my hot dinner was inspired by my freezer.  I like to keep Italian turkey sausages in the freezer – they come in very handy.

You can grill one and add it to sauteed peppers and onions, slice one to top your pizza or crumble it and add to pasta.

I also love to keep these in my freezer – pop one out and add it to anything…no stinky hands from chopping fresh garlic!

Last night I went for the turkey sausage/pasta combo

Turkey Sausage Pasta Bake

Ingredients 

  • 1/2 cup chopped zucchini
  • 1/2 cup chopped button mushrooms
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1 Italian turkey sausage link (sweet or spicy), crumbled
  • 1-2 oz whole wheat pasta (shape of your choice!)
  • 1/4 cup jarred tomato sauce
  • 1 oz mozzarella cheese (equal to one string cheese stick)

 

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Cook the pasta according to package instructions. While the oven is heating and the pasta is boiling, heat a pan sprayed with olive oil over medium-high heat and add the turkey sausage.

Cook for a few minutes until the sausage begins to brown.  Lower the heat to medium and add the veggies and garlic.

Season with salt & pepper.  Saute together for 5 more minutes to combine the flavors and allow the veggies to soften.

Drain your cooked pasta and add to a small baking dish coated with cooking spray.  Top with the sausage/veggie mixture, the tomato sauce and top with cheese.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cheese is gooey and melted.  I also broiled mine for a few minutes in the end to get that crispy baked pasta topping.

The shells were a perfect pasta shape for this – they held in all of the yummy goodness of the veggies and sausage.

I cleaned that casserole dish…yum!  Totally worth raising the temperature of my apartment with my oven to make this.

Coconut Curry Throw Together and Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:15 am

Coconut Curry Throw Together

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb chicken, cut into cubes
  • ½ butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • ½ sweet potato, cubed
  • 3 heads of broccoli, roughly chopped
  • ¾ can coconut milk
  • 2-3 tablespoons curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon gm marsala
  • 4 tablespoon coconut flour
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Coconut Curry

Preparations:

Preheat that wonderful little oven of yours to 350 degrees.

Pull out a 9 x 11 glass baking dish and throw all your chopped meat and veggies into it.

Pour your coconut milk over it along with dumping your spices on top. Use a large spoon to mix everything together until the broccoli is coated.

Now plop a bit of coconut flour on top of it all and mix one more time until everything is coated. If the mixture looks a bit thick (which may occur because coconut flour is so incredibly dense) add a bit more coconut milk to the mixture and stir it up!

Top it off with a bit of salt and pepper.

Cover the baking dish with foil and put in your oven for about 25-30 minutes. This time will range depending on how thick you cut your chicken chunks. Mine were pretty small so they cooked up quick!

 

Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup honey, raw
  • ¼ cup coconut butter** (check out this link for a cheaper way to make your own coconut butter)
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, warmed
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup shredded unsweetened coconut
  • ½ cup coconut flour sifted
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life—they are soy and dairy free! And flipping delicious)

 

coconut chocolate chip cookies

Preparations:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

If you are making coconut butter my way, follow the link and make your coconut butter before you walk through the rest of the step.

In a medium bowl add the eggs, honey, coconut butter (break up the butter with a whisk or fork, if needed), oil and vanilla. Whisk until thoroughly combined.

Add shredded coconut, coconut flour, almond flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix together until everything is combined and stir in chocolate chips.

Use a spoon to drop little dollops onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. I like mine a little darker on the bottoms so check at 15 minutes.

Let them rest on the cookie sheet before removing to cool completely. The coconut butter is hard to get out of the jar.

It is really solid, unlike coconut oil, so when I add the coconut butter to the other ingredients I break it up with a whisk into tiny bits.

You can also heat it in the microwave to get it more of a liquid texture. If you use my way, you won’t really run into this problem.

Steve’s Recipe: Taste The Homemade Tortillas

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:15 am

I use tortillas for a lot of meals, even snacks, but I never tried making my own until recently. It’s not super simple as it takes some work to get the dough going.

But it’s far from hard as well. When you taste your first homemade tortilla, you’ll understand why I say that I will never use store-bought tortillas again. They are worth every bit of effort!

 

Ingredients:

 

homemade tortillas

Methods:

Before I get started, I will say that I kind of made this recipe up. When I first looked for a tortilla recipe, all I could find were ones that used lard.

That is something I wouldn’t use in my kitchen for anything else, so I wasn’t going to buy any. I read that vegetable oil can replace it, so I gave it a try. I think it came out wonderful.

First, you want to get a clean, smooth work surface. I work on my counter and do everything there. You could mix some of this in a bowl and then move it to your work surface, it’s up to you.

So now, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, and oil. Once it is mixed, you want to slowly add in your milk.

I literally add just a tiny bit at a time and make a little well in my dough, pour in some milk, and then work it in.

I repeat that until I have used all of the milk. You can kind of see in what I’m talking about in this picture.

This will form a very sticky ball. Make sure your work surface is well floured. You will have to knead the dough for a few minutes.

It should be a little firm and much less sticky. You can place your dough in a bowl at this point, or leave it on your work surface. Cover your dough with a damp cloth or paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes.

Afterward, you want to break it off into 8 pieces. Roll each of these into a ball. They don’t have to be exact!

Place them, without them touching, on a surface and cover them with the same wet cloth or towel. You want to let these sit for 10 minutes.

Now it’s time to roll them out. Go back to your work surface and make sure it is well floured. Place one ball on your surface at a time.

With your hands, flatten it a bit. Then, with a rolling pin, you want to roll them out until they are about 8 inches in diameter.

I normally make mine smaller than that, but they are very thick, so I suggest rolling them out to 8 inches and if you want them smaller, next time rolls them out a little smaller.

 

My biggest tip here is:

Don’t work the dough too much. I have made tons of things with dough, from bread to pizzas to tortillas and the thing that really is the worst is overworked dough.

flour tortillas

It turns very stiff and is unpleasant once cooked. Just try to be quick about it and don’t try to make them perfect.

They don’t need to be exactly round or all the exact same size. This is what makes them unique and homemade!

After each tortilla is rolled out, place it back under the damp cloth or towel. Heat up a skillet on high. Iron skillets work the best, but they aren’t required.

The skillet needs to be dry; I learned that the hard way! Don’t add anything to it. Place the tortillas in the skillet one at a time, cooking for about 30 seconds on each side.

They should start to puff up a bit when they are done. Keep your cooked tortillas wrapped. I usually cook the tortillas, wrap them in foil and place them in the oven to keep them warm.

You can store the leftovers in the fridge, just keep them tightly wrapped. Mine have never lasted for a day in the fridge (we eat them pretty quick!).

But I don’t think you should keep them much longer than that. You can reheat them on the skillet, over a gas burner or in the oven as I mentioned above.

These tortillas are very delicious and well worth the effort! If you have the time to make them, I highly suggest giving them a try.

Once you do, you won’t enjoy the store bought tortillas anymore, that’s for sure! These are just wonderful.

Steve’s Recipes: Craving Broccoli and Lentil Soup

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:15 am

Craving Broccoli: Broccoli Salad

 

Weird, I know…who craves broccoli?  Me, apparently.  It’s all I wanted this week and I wanted it in the form of this lemony, tangy, crunchy salad.

This is seriously the easiest side dish and is perfect for summer.  Usually when you hear “broccoli salad”.

You think mayonnaise-laden broccoli florets with cheese and bacon…not the healthiest thing in the world.  This salad is quite the opposite and really tasty.

Craving Broccoli

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 large head of broccoli, cut into florets and steamed
  • 1 tbs fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbs white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp lemon zest
  • 1/2 t salt
  • Pepper
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • Thinly sliced lemon & red onion

 

Preparations:

The quick trick for steaming your broccoli – place the clean florets in a zip-top plastic baggie and cut a few slits in it.

Microwave on high for 1-2 mins- check the doneness of the broccoli by poking it with a fork.  I prefer mine to stay a little crunchy so I cooked it for a shorter amount of time.

Started off by making the vinaigrette for the salad in the bottom of a large bowl – mix together the lemon juice, vinegar, mustard, zest and salt and add a dash of black pepper and hot sauce.

Threw some thin lemon slices in there too. Next,  I poured the just-steamed broccoli into the bowl and tossed.  Add some thinly sliced red onion last, as much or as little as you like.

My mom always makes this salad in the summer and serves it with grilled chicken, or grilled sausage – moral of the story is that it can be added to any summer menu.

Last night, I obviously knew I was eating broccoli salad for dinner because there’s a big bowl of it in the fridge but I needed something to go with it…

Yup, that’s baked beans on top of a baked sweet potato.  I have seen this combo all over the blog world lately and it sounded really good – guess what, it is really good!

Makes sense that the sweetness of the baked beans would go well with a sweet potato.  It may not be the prettiest of things, but it really is quite delicious.

I have never bought canned baked beans, thinking they would never taste as good as homemade, but I highly recommend Whole Foods brand organic baked beans if you’re curious to try this creation too.

 

Lentil Soup

What I mean is sometimes you think you don’t like a certain dish because you’ve had so many bad versions of that dish.

But then suddenly you encounter a recipe for that dish that takes you by surprise and you find yourself–against your best instincts–loving that dish.

lentil soup

But certain weather demands that you make soup, and if ever there was the weather for soup–and if you live in the Northeast or the Northwest, you know what I’m talking about–this is it.

What I liked so much about this soup is that the flavors were clear and bright; it wasn’t that muddy, gunky mass of water and mushy beans that normally passes for lentil soup.

All of the elements–the lentils, the onions, the greens (I used swiss chard)–stand firmly on their own and even though it’s hardy enough to be a winter dish

It has all the brightness of summer too. And if you make it spicy (and I did) you’ll feel like there’s a campfire in your belly, which is just what you want on a cold winter’s night.

 

Here’s an Amateur Gourmet summary of what you do:

  • Buy a bag of lentils and boil 2 cups of them in plenty of water for 20 minutes or until they’re cooked through (at the 15-minute mark, start tasting.) When cooked, drain them.

 

  • Wash out that pot dries it. Add some olive oil (Heidi says 1 Tbs, I used more because I’m a glutton), turn up the heat, and add one chopped onion.

 

  • Here’s where Heidi and I go down different paths: she has you add spices at the end of the recipe, but I added them with the onion while it was sauteing.

 

  • So in this step, I added salt and a sprinkling of cumin seeds, a sprinkling of cayenne pepper, a sprinkling of curry powder, and some red pepper flakes. It’s all to taste so if you want it aggressive and spicy, add a lot.

 

  • If you want it mild and subtle, add a little. As Heidi says: you can rewrite this recipe as much as you want to suit your own needs.

 

  • When the onion is translucent, you add 1 28-oz can of crushed tomatoes, 2 cups water (I used the empty tomato can for the water so I got all the remaining tomato shmutz in there too) and the cooked lentils to the pot.

 

  • Bring the soup to a simmer and taste; this is a good time to adjust the salt. I added quite a bit, but I’m a salty guy.

 

  • After a few minutes, add 3 cups of a finely chopped “big, leafy green”–either kale or chard–which you wash well and separate from the stem (don’t use the stems.) Let it wilt a bit in the soup and then that’s it. You’re done!

 

It’s just the kind of food you want to eat at the start of a cold, miserable winter; which means the time to eat it is now.

Steve’s Recipes: Pad See Ew, Cake Pops and Fresh Homemade Pesto

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:15 am

Pad See Ew

For most of my life, I believed I didn’t like Thai food.  In the last few years I’ve realized how wrong I was.  My favorite Thai dish is pad see ew (pronounced “pad see you”).

Pad See Ew is made with rice noodles, sweet soy sauce, egg, vegetable of choice, and protein of choice, and it can range from mild and sweet to very spicy.

 In restaurants I order chicken.  At home, I use tofu, because it’s different and it’s a fun challenge to try to cook it well.  The vegetable is always broccoli because that’s practically the only vegetable we eat in this house.

The biggest change I made was how I was cooking the tofu.  The first few run-throughs, the tofu was awful.

It was soggy, it was mushy, it fell apart, and it tasted like, well, mush.  Now I dry fry the tofu and use a marinade.  The tofu is now flavorful and has a much more pleasing texture.

Also, I cut the recipe in half.  I don’t have a pan big enough to make the whole thing so I always ended up cooking in stages and dumping it all into a mixing bowl.

It’s not the best strategy.  The original also made at least 8 servings.  There are only two of us so we were quite sick of pad see ew by the time we finished it all.  This is the smaller version that I now use.

pad see ew

 

Ingredients

  • 7 oz extra firm organic tofu
  • 1 crown broccoli cut into florets
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 package rice noodles
  • 4 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons black soy sauce, dark soy sauce, or thick soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon Red pepper flakes, to taste
  • 1-2 tablespoons sugar to taste
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature

 

Preparations

First, put the noodles in a bowl of hot water to soak.  This time I forgot that step so I used a pan of boiling water instead at the last-minute and rinsed the noodles afterward.  Both methods work, but soaking is preferable.

Next, mix your marinade in a shallow bowl.  I used a 9×9 baking dish.  Combine the soy sauces, white pepper, red pepper flakes, and sugar.

Now, drain and press your tofu between two clean dish towels or paper towels to remove as much water as possible.

When your tofu is dry, cut it into pieces of the desired size (just remember, you have to flip each one) and put them in the bottom of a frying pan on medium-low heat.

Make sure to use a single layer with space in between each piece.  Do not use any oil.  Fry the tofu on each side until it turns golden, like this.

When the tofu is done, add it to the marinade.

While the tofu marinades, check the noodles and add more hot water if needed.  Then cut the broccoli into florets and place them in the hot tofu pan with a bit (about 1/4 cup) of water.  Cover them until the water evaporates.

Push the broccoli to the side of the pan (or pour it into your nearby mixing bowl like I did) and put the sesame oil and garlic in the pan to brown.

Increase the heat to high.  Then pour in the drained noodles and the tofu and all the marinade.  Stir-fry.

Make a space in the middle of your pan to scramble the eggs and add them to the stir-fry.  Add the broccoli back in if you took it out (or mix it all in your mixing bowl) and you’re done.

Note, there are no pictures of the last part because I didn’t have time to stop in the middle.  The stir-frying only takes a couple of minutes altogether.

 

Getting Ready to Bake the Cake Pops

The Cake Pop instructions said to use the cake mix (strike two! on their way to storage).  So I chose a recipe from The Moosewood Book of Desserts. Specifically the Festive Celebrations Cake.

So I could use the egg whites I had in my frig from another baking project. That recipe makes the cake for 50.

 cake pops

 

Ingredients

Here’s the recipe adjusted to make 36 cake pops:

  • 1 1/4 cups sugar (I always measure scant on sugar)
  • 2 cups flour (I used whole wheat. I meant to buy white–in honor of all things fussy–at the store, but my subconscious must have revolted and picked up the whole wheat flour instead)
  • 3/4 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter  at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used buttermilk)
  • 1/2 cup egg whites
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I make my own: 4 vanilla bean pods chopped and soaked in 1-quart brandy for 6 weeks)

 

 

Preparations

In a large bowl,  combine the sugar,  flour,  baking powder and salt. With an electric mixer on low speed,  beat the butter into the flour mixture.

Add 1/4 cup of the milk and continue beating for another minute or so. In a medium bowl,  lightly whisk together the rest of the milk,  the egg whites, and the vanilla.

Pour 1/3 of the milk mixture at a time into the butter mixture,  beating well and scraping down the sides of the bowl after each addition.

Spoon the batter into the greased cake pop cups. Fill evenly to the top edge. If you underfill they won’t raise enough to make a perfect sphere.

If you overfill,  the dough spooges through the air hole in the top pan–leaving your children with yummy tidbits to nibble when you pull them out of the oven. So I’d err on overfilling.

Put the top tray on,  fasten with heatproof clips. Bake 18 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Cool on racks for about 10 minutes and then remove the top tray. Loosen the balls in the bottom tray and temper some chocolate.

Dip the plastic lollipop sticks into your tempered chocolate and gently insert into your lovely cake balls. Let set. Then provide more tempered chocolate, sprinkles and what not for children to decorate.

 

Fresh Homemade Pesto

Choose your favorite crusty bread as the base for this Italianized veggie version of the “croque-monsieur,” the bistro classic grilled cheese.

Fresh homemade pesto is always best, as red peppers roasted in your own oven, but store-bought versions will be fine in a pinch.

Any of the brands of shredded soy Mozza we tested will be delicious. Make sure you give them time to melt well and brown.

Serves four

homemade pesto

 

Ingredients

  • 4 slices crusty bread, minimum ½ in. thick
  • 4 tbsp. basil pesto
  • 2 red bell peppers, roasted, peeled and sliced ( see Note)
  • 8 oz. shredded mozzarella flavored soy cheese
  • 1 clove garlic coarsely chopped (opt.)
  • ¼ cup olive oil

 

Preparations

  • Pre-heat the broiler.
  • Combine oil and garlic and let infuse for 10 minutes. Place the bread slices on a heavy baking sheet and brush with oil. Broil for a few minutes until lightly toasted. Remove and repeat on another side (can be prepared ahead)
  • Top each toasted slice with 1 tbsp of pesto, and cover with strips of roasted red pepper. Cover completely with shredded cheese and return to broiler.
  • Broil five to 10 minutes, or until cheese has melted and is lightly browned.

 

Serve immediately.

 

Note: To roast red peppers, rub each pepper with olive oil and place in a shallow baking pan. Broil, turning frequently until the skin is black and blistered.

Transfer the peppers to a small plastic bag, seal and let steam 15 minutes.

Using the back of a knife, pull away from the charred skin, interior veins, seeds, and stem. Store in a dish of olive oil (with garlic, if you like) until use.

Peanut Butter Cookies, Citrus Lime Steak and Cider Poached Pears

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:15 am

Peanut Butter Cookies

I’d like to start off with some personal news and a bit of a plug. Last week I was made redundant. It wasn’t out of the blue but I had a weeks notice & no indication that I wouldn’t have to work out my notice period.

The extra free time is a wonderful treat, but it can’t be for too long! With all this spare time, I plan on doing a fair bit of baking.

So if you’re looking for some baked treats for a cafe or restaurant, need to increase your Gluten Free range, or want something for a special occasion, please let me know.

I’d love to make something just for you. Ok, end plug. Let’s get to the recipe huh? Today we are making COOKIES! These are a perfect after-school treat, or just because of the treat.

I would know, I’ve eaten two today! What? They were asking for it. They’ve got this beautiful texture, slightly crunchy, a little soft and almost like shortbread, it just melts in your mouth.

We recently put the call out for requests and our friend Simon from Simon Says Eat suggested Peanut Butter Cookies.

This recipe has been sitting in the “To Make” list for a little while & I couldn’t resist. Four ingredient cookies? So simple. There’s no excuse not to make these.

Oh and there’s a bonus! They’re gluten & dairy free for those of you with allergies or diet restrictions. The other bonus is that they take almost no time at all to make.

Twenty minutes, from getting your ingredients out, to getting those cookies in your belly!

Peanut Butter Cookies

These are the ingredients you’ll need. Sugar, peanut butter, egg, and baking powder. 1 of each (cups of the big stuff, a teaspoon of the small stuff)

You beat them all together, then start rolling them into balls. Make a pretty pattern on the top. Then pop them in the oven to bake for a little while.

And once they’re done, let them cool for a little while. Then gobble them all up!

 

Ingredients 

Makes about 2 dozen

  • Sugar: 1 cup
  • Good quality peanut butter, crunchy or smooth: 1 cup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp baking powder

 

Directions

  1. Beat sugar and peanut butter together until smooth.
  2. Beat egg and baking powder together lightly & beat into peanut butter mixture.
  3. Roll dough in 1 tablespoon sized balls and place 5cm apart on a lined baking tray.
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden and puffed.
  5. Remove from oven and allow cool for 5 minutes.
  6. After five minutes, move them to a rack to cool.

 

Need Variations? Try the following:

  1. Mix some smooth & some crunchy peanut butter.
  2. Put a chocolate chip/M&M on the top as soon as they come out of the oven.
  3. Once fully cooled, paint the underside with chocolate.
  4. Add a chocolate square & a marshmallow on top before they go in the oven. Peanut butter more!

 

Citrus Lime Steak

I’ve just recently become fond of steak. It’s just really chewy, like really. I feel like my jaw becomes so tired that my stomach gives up all hope of ever being satisfied. But there is still hope stomach, don’t give up now!!

Citrus Lime Steak

My cute little old man (that’s my father if you didn’t get my jist) showed me what a london broil was a few months ago and I’ve fallen in love.

If you can’t get a guy, get a steak, right? That sounded weird. I just totally made you uncomfortable, didn’t I? My b. But I’m serious.

So now that it’s summer and comfort food just seems a bit hot and overbearing, it’s time to find a dish that is crisp and refreshing…Well DAMN, you are lucky that you’re reading this paragraph this very second.

Lucky I tell you. Because this meal is delicious, refreshing, and sets your taste buds into pandemonium.

 

Ingredients 

  • 1.5-2 lb London broil
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • Tarragon: 1 teaspoon
  • Parsley: 1 teaspoon
  • Garlic powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Onion powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Salt: 1 teaspoon
  • Black pepper: 1 teaspoon
  • gallon sized Ziploc bag
  • ⅓ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup olive oil (I used a mild flavor)
  • Juice of 3 limes
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • Juice: 1 orange
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Italian seasoning: 1 teaspoon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

 

Directions

  • Grab your Ziploc bag, add your London broil to it along with all the other ingredients below. Not the citrus dressing ingredients you weirdo.

 

  • Shake the bag, push all the ingredients together, knead the steak. KNEAD IT! Just give it some loving. Then set it in the fridge to marinate for 2+ hours. How long did I marinate mine? Freaking 48 hours people. You know why? Because that’s how sh*t goes sometimes people!

 

 

  • Now, you have 2 options. #1 If your grill has 2 burners, turn one on HIGH. You will sear both sides of the steak on the HIGH heat burner.

 

  • This will just take 1-2 minutes per side. #2 Or, if you don’t have a grill with multiple burners, sear your steak in a pan over very high heat with a bit of fat in the pan. This will only take 1-2 minutes per side.

 

  • Once you’ve seared both sides of the steak, flip it to your medium heat burner and close the grill. Let this side cook for about 4-5 minutes. Then flip to the other side

 

  • While the steak is cooking, head in the kitchen to make your citrus dressing.

 

  • Add all your ingredients for your dressing together and whisk together.

 

  • Once your steak is done cooking–you can poke at it to tell if it’s done–if your finger sinks in deep, it’s probably not quite ready.

 

  • If the meat has a bit of pushback when you poke it, that chunk o’ meat is ready!! It all depends on how cooked you’re like yours. I like mine pink. I know you cared.

 

  • Once the steak is done, set it on a plate to rest for at least an hour. That means leave it the hell alone and let the juices meld together.

 

  • After it has finished resting, cut it thinly with a SHARP knife and add it to your dressing. Mix thoroughly. Store in the fridge for a more crisp and refreshing flavor.

Cider Poached Pears

Peel your pears. Use a melon baller to take out a couple of ‘balls’ from the base. This will remove the core & seeds while keeping it presentable.

Cider Poached Pears

Place them all in a large pot, it’ll need to be big enough to have a cup of liquid per pear.

You’ll need dry cider, while I don’t like to drink Strongbow Dry, I think it worked well in this recipe.

Add in the nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon.

Simmer until they’re beautiful and soft.

Once they’re done, remove the cinnamon and pears and boil down the liquid until it’s halved. The best thing about this recipe is that it’s served cold, so all of this can be done the day before!

Serve cold on rich honey yoghurt (we only ever buy Mundella, SO good) with the syrup poured over the top.

It’s simple but delicious and a great dessert to serve at a dinner party without too much hassle.

 

Ingredients 

Adapted from Food for Weight Watching

Serves 4

  • 4 pears, peeled and core removed
  • 4 cups of unsweetened cider
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 6 cloves (or 1/2 t of ground cloves)
  • 1/4 t ground nutmeg
  • 2 tbs honey

 

Directions

  • Place pears, cider, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg all in a large pot and bring to a simmer over a medium heat.

 

  • Simmer slowly for around 25 minutes (if the pears are not fully covered, turn them over at the halfway point) until the pears are soft enough to easily pierce with a fork.

 

  • Remove the pears, cinnamon and cloves (if using whole cloves).

 

  • Add the honey to the liquid and boil gently until it reduces to a syrupy consistency or by half.

 

  • When ready to serve, spoon yogurt into a bowl, top with a pear and spoon over a few tablespoons of the syrup.

Alternatives:

  • Serve warm with ice cream or custard.
  • Poach apples instead of pears.
  • Try poaching in different ciders with the range available at the moment there are a lot of combinations!

Cauliflower Broccoli Cheese and Heart Healthy Pumpkin Flan

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:16 am

Cauliflower Broccoli Cheese

What do you say about cauliflower cheese? It’s the kind of dish I associate with growing up, however, we didn’t usually get it growing up. I know the few times we did, I loved it!

For some reason, it’s seen as unhealthy when in reality, it’s not that bad. Cheese is ok, milk is ok, and it has a little butter in it. If it gets the kids to eat their veggies, hey, why not?

You melt a little butter. Add plain flour until it turns into a paste then add milk, a little at a time so it’s incorporated before adding the next slurp (do as I say, not as my photos show that I did)

Once you’ve got it to a slightly thick but still pourable consistency, add salt, pepper, and mustard, to taste of course. Then you add your cheese. It can’t be a cheese sauce without cheese, can it?

While that’s been happening, I hope you’ve steamed your cauliflower and broccoli until they’re just a little less crunchy. You pop them in an oven-safe tray.

Then spoon the delicious cheesy sauce all over the vegetables.

Cauliflower Broccoli Cheese

Sprinkle breadcrumbs and a little extra cheese on top before popping it in the oven for about 30 minutes, until the top is slightly golden and crunchy.

You can serve it with anything you like, but it goes great with a roast, corned beef (silverside) or with some additional ingredients, you could make this a meal in itself.

Ingredient 

  • 2T butter
  • 1/8 C plain flour
  • 1 1/2 C milk
  • 1 t dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 C grated cheese + 2 T for sprinkling
  • 2 T bread crumbs
  • 2 heads of broccoli or cauliflower

 

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 180C (375F)
  • Chop your vegetables into florets and steam until they’re just tender, they’ll cook more in the oven
  • Melt butter in a saucepan
  • Once fully melted, add flour and stir until a paste forms
  • Slowly add milk a little at a time, making sure it’s fully incorporated before adding more
  • Once all the milk has been added, add the mustard and salt and pepper to taste
  • Add in the 1/3 C cheese and stir to combine, take it off the heat until ready to use
  • Layer the vegetables in an oven proof tray and spoon the sauce over
  • Sprinkle breadcrumbs and extra cheese on top & pop into the oven for 30 minutes
  • For extra crispiness, use the grill to toast the top in the last five minutes
  • Serve warm with whatever you, please

You could add shredded chicken, extra vegetables (carrot, asparagus, spinach) or cooked lentils and make it a meal in itself.

Place breasts in a shallow glass or ceramic dish. Place mustard, vinegar, garlic, honey, thyme, salt and pepper flakes in a small bowl; stir with a fork to combine.

Add oil a little at a time and whisk to combine marinade. Pour marinade over breasts. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate in refrigerator, turning once or twice in the marinade, for at least 2 hours, or up to 4 hours.

Scots Crumpets

scots crumpets

These are soft pancake-like fare but made larger and more thinly than pancakes. They can be spread with butter and/or jam and they are traditionally rolled up before eating. The quantities below will make about 16 crumpets

 

Ingredients

  • 8 oz plain flour (2 cups all-purpose flour)
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar/fine granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs, separated into whites and yolks
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 15 oz milk- a pint in the US is 16 fluid oz; a UK pint is 20 fluid oz.
  • Note: American tablespoons hold 14.2ml compared to UK 17.7ml

 

Method

Beat the egg yolks and blend in the sifted flour, sugar, salt. Then add in the melted butter and milk to make a thin batter about the consistency of thin cream.

Beat the egg whites to the soft peak stage and quickly add to the batter, folding with a knife or metal spoon.

Heat a lightly greased griddle or a frying pan and pour in large spoonfuls of the batter. Each crumpet should spread thinly to about 4/5″ in diameter and you may have to roll the pan to achieve this.

When the batter is brown underneath and slightly bubbly on top, turn and cook on the other side. Keep them warm by stacking on a clean tea towel and eat soon after

Big Little Cheesecake

If you love easy cheesecake recipes this one is it, its creamy silky desserts then cheesecake would be your dessert of choice.

My favorite would be cheesecake made with graham cracker crust. However, there are cakes made with walnut, pecan or even peanut crust.

There are filling made with vanilla, chocolate, caramel, mint chocolate, I have made this easy cheesecake recipe with ricotta cheese.

I have also seen recipes that call for goat cheese anything and everything is possible. There are even some cheesecakes that you don?t have to be baked, and the topping, anything goes.

For example, I have a friend that makes a great cheesecake and tops it with blueberries. I happen to love peach, strawberries, and mangos. Shaved chocolate or white chocolate draped with whip cream, Hmm?

I owned a coffee shop not too long ago and one of the items I wanted to create was a great dessert. The Coffee shop was named? Dazzy?s Coffee and Deserts? it is still my dream to create great coffee and desserts.

One of our best selling product was the mini cheesecakes they were an instant hit, they were a kind of bit size cheesecake you could eat without feeling too guilty, but our motto was? go ahead enjoy you know you want it?.

We sold them in what we called the cheesy six packs or the eight packs. They were simple to make and we used several topping cherry, strawberry, peach, orange, chocolate and chocolate caramel.

A lot of our customers use them for parties and meetings. They are great for a small delicious dessert. I have included the recipes; we had to recreate the original recipe to give it the better balance of creamy taste, be careful not to cook too long.

To make the easy cheesecake recipes mini cake you will need a mini cheesecake pan is the most important, there are two that I found to work very well.

The NorPro and the Chicago Metallic seem to be the best ones. This is a fast and simple recipe. Here is the recipe.

Here where you can get the pans: Chicago Metallic 12-c. Mini Cheesecake Pan

The tops will fall then lightly loosen the cheese tarts around the edges with a knife. Carefully remove the by pushing the handle of a spoon through the hole at the bottom of each cup.

When cooled, take the disc off the bottom of the pan using a butter knife. Place any topping you desire on the top. Refrigerate until ready to serve this easy cheesecake recipe.

 

Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe

buttermilk pancakes recipe

These are my favorite weekend treat. I’m not a big fan of the big, fat, fluffy pancakes and while I love crepes, they’re a lot of effort.

Buttermilk pancakes are a perfect combination of the two, they’re a little bit thick, but not stodgy and they’re a little bit thin, but have some substance. I love them.

The best part is? There’s no real prep or waiting for half an hour. Just mix it all up & you’re good to go!

You’ll need some ingredients, of course.

  • Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl & whisk together.
  • Add the egg and the buttermilk
  • Whisk it all together until it’s smooth

Pancakes aren’t hard to make either. Use a non-stick pan over a medium-low heat (this is important!) and spoon it in. A ladle works well & helps to keep them a consistent size.

Once it gets bubbly, and the bubbles stay popped (the mixture doesn’t close them over), they’re good to turn.

Depending on how long you’ll wait until you serve them, you can just stack them up or pop them into a very low oven to keep warm.

Serve them with whatever you like. Jam & cream, maple syrup, and ice cream, fresh fruit, chocolate sauce. The possibilities are almost endless.

I decided to try the kiwi jam I made recently. It was delicious!

Serves 2 hungry people or 4 sensible people

 

Ingredient:

 

Directions

  1. Whisk dry ingredients together until well combined
  2. Add egg and milk and mix well
  3. Heat a nonstick pan on medium-low and spoon in mixture
  4. Once bubbles form and hold shape once popped, flip and cook for another minute or so
  5. Keep warm in a low oven or serve immediately

 

Note: Buttermilk is soured milk Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar into the cup measure before adding milk & let it sit. For 1 1/4 cups add a little more than 1 T of vinegar. Do this first, then get the other ingredients ready. This will allow it time to develop.

 

Earl Grey Tea Cakes

earl grey tea cakes recipe

Tea is not my most favorite drink unless it’s a long island iced or a plain iced, I’ll generally stick to coffee.

The idea of Earl Grey Tea Cakes tickled my fancy though, add in the whimsical purple frosting and I just couldn’t resist. The tea bags found their way into my basket at the store & I came straight home to make them.

This does have me wondering though, what else can I flavor the milk with…?

The cake is cake, I’m sure you’ve seen the step by steps before. Butter & sugar, add eggs, alternate milk & flour, et voila.

You have the cake mix. The same goes for this, BUT you add an extra step. Warm the milk on the stove & steep the tea bags for about half an hour. Then you used the steeped milk.

 

Ingredient

Makes 12 Cake

  • 125 ml milk
  • 4 Earl Grey tea bags
  • 110g butter
  • 225g sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ tsp vanilla essence
  • 125g self-raising flour
  • 120g plain flour

Icing

  • 115g butter
  • 60 ml milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 500g icing sugar
  • Purple (or blue and red) food coloring

 

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 180C and prepare a 12 hole muffin tray.

 

  • Heat milk in a small saucepan over a low to medium heat until it begins to boil. Remove from the heat, add in the tea bags, you might need to stir them to get them going, then cover with a lid and allow to steep for about 30 minutes.

 

  • Cream butter and sugar in a bowl until the mixture is smooth. Add the vanilla extract and eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

 

  • Combine the flours in a separate bowl. Add a third of the flour to the butter mixture and mix well. Pour in a third of the steeped milk tea and beat.

 

  • Alternate until all the flour and milk has been added. Carefully spoon mixture into papers, filling each one two-thirds full. Bake for 25 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

 

  • To make the icing, beat butter, milk, vanilla and half the icing sugar until smooth. Gradually add the rest of icing sugar until there are no lumps.

 

  • Add coloring using a teaspoon until the desired color is reached. (you can try without the teaspoon like I did, but you might end up with a really dark blue-purple icing, rather than a nice soft lilac/lavender color).

 

  • Once completely cooled, ice the cupcakes and enjoy.

Chorizo Pasta Recipes – Cooking With Steve

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:16 am

Chorizo pasta recipes are actually hard to come by. You’ll be hard pressed to find an excellent chorizo pasta recipe for you to make.

The reason is simply that pasta recipes in itself can have their meats replaced by Spanish chorizo.

So in reality, you could take any old spaghetti meatball dish and turn it into the chorizo pasta recipes we have on the left!

That’s what many people forget when making chorizo recipes, just a simple substitution of meat can cause such a huge change in taste.

But today, we’ll be focusing on a specialty of chorizo pasta recipes, and that is spaghetti and chorizo.

This recipe will be similar to our last chorizo pasta recipes, but with slight variations. We hope you enjoy our chorizo pasta recipes.

 

Chorizo Pasta Recipes Ingredients

  • 80g pack sliced chorizo sausage
  • 300g bag fresh spaghetti
  • 20g pack flatleaf parsley (a good handful)
  • 2 red peppers from a jar, in brine or oil
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 50g finely grated fresh parmesan

 

This recipe is an easy recipe and can be completed in 10 minutes. Serving size of the listed ingredients is 4 people.

Generally, with most pasta and Chorizo, the nutritional value is always on the healthy side. Be sure not to add too much oil when cooking.

Also, when purchasing Chorizo, always read the contents and nutritional value and determine how many grams of fat it contains.

 

Method for Today’s Chorizo Pasta Recipes

First, set up a boiling pot of water and start cutting up the chorizo into smaller sizes, and cut the parsley and red peppers to prepare.

Add in the spaghetti to the boiling water and let it rest until fully cooked for about 3 minutes. During this time, cover a frying pan with olive oil and heat it up.

Add your chorizo slices, peppers and black peppers (as much as you deem fit for your tastes). Allow it t cook for 30s to 1 minute until you see some of the chorizo juices to be secreted.

This juice is very rich in paprika juices and will serve as part of your sauce. Now, drain your spaghetti and place in pan.

Add a handful of salt in for seasoning and add parsley and parmesan. Note that you’ll want to add water from your pot into the pan in case of drying out.

Now serve with extra parmesan! We hope you enjoyed today’s chorizo pasta recipes.

Frankly, I have not tried the recipe with regular flour type used here, but if you fear you will not leaf out due to lack of this type of flour, we recommend setting up a normal sponge dough, one that you have already made.

In a bowl rub the butter foam and add the contents of the can of condensed milk. Mix enough to homogenize. Strawberries wash them and clean them after they dried off between paper towels.

After cooling the leaf we clean tray I baked ( as I realized later that I should have used baking paper ) and then I started to assemble the cake.

Steve’s Tomato Sauce Recipe From Scratch

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:17 am

Tomato Sauce Recipe

Making tomato sauce is a little labor intensive, but the real reason I haven’t done it in years is that it’s just not economical.

No matter how good the sauce comes out, it takes a huge volume of tomatoes to make a respectable amount of sauce.

Even mediocre fresh tomatoes tend to be pretty expensive, and good fresh tomatoes are really, really expensive if you buy them in quantity.

Maybe you’ve got a great big garden, but the odds are you don’t have enough tomatoes to make the sauce.

If you do have that quantity of tomatoes to spare, you’re living the good life.  That’s why, if you ever get a good deal on a big box of tomatoes, you should pounce.

Because these tomatoes weren’t great, but let me tell you, they made a damn good sauce.  Most of them had huge, ugly bruises; a couple was starting to turn fuzzy, and several felt too hard when I cut into them.

 

Preparations

But once I chopped them up and cooked them down, some sort of magic happened.  They tasted like the most tomato-ey tomatoes you’ve ever had.

And that’s the reward for spending a rainy afternoon chopping tomatoes and making the house smell delicious – the best sauce you’ve ever had.

There are two keys to making sauce (besides having lots of tomatoes): peeling them and seeding them.  Neither of these things is hard to do.

But, they can take a little time if you are doing them a lot.  It helps to crank up the music or bring a friend if you can.

Peeling tomatoes is actually a neat trick if you’ve never done it en mass before.  The secret is blanching: dipping the tomatoes in hot water long enough to release the skins.

First, get yourself set up with a pan of boiling water, deep enough for a tomato, and a bowl of ice water.

Then just cut a small, shallow ‘x’ in each one with a serrated knife, dunk them one at a time in boiling water and let them sit just until the skin starts to pull away – about a minute.

Then, move them quickly to the ice water, and let them sit until you can handle them.  The skin will just slide off: magic!

Seeding is similarly easy: slice the tomato in half along its equator, and then squeeze each half over a bowl until the seeds and pulp come out.

(Did I mention it helps to get meaty tomatoes, the kind that is more flesh than juice?  No surprise, but it helps!)  You don’t have to be a perfectionist, either.

 A few seeds in your sauce won’t hurt you.  Once the seeds are out, just coarsely chop the flesh.  (When you’re done, you can strain the seeds out and save the tomato juice, which you can drink or use in place of stock; it’s like a bonus.)

Then, you get cooking.  There are lots of variations on tomato sauce, and you can get as creative as you want.

My rendition was, I feel, pretty classic: I sauteed an onion and a few cloves of garlic in olive oil, until they were just starting to brown, then added the tomatoes, along with some basil, oregano, salt, and pepper.

I let it simmer for about an hour and a half, until most of the liquid cooked off, and was left with a nice chunky, flavorful sauce.

The best part was that I served the sauce over homemade gnocchi – but that’s a story for another day.  The moral here is that homemade tomato sauce is amazing.

And if you get a good deal on a couple pounds of less-than-perfect tomatoes, you should take it!

Struffoli Recipe – Cooking With Steve

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:17 am

If You have never encountered  Struffoli Before, they are best described visually at any rate as the croquembouche of southern Italy: small dough balls.

I mean really small, the size of marbles, that is deep-fried and then rolled in honey before being assembled into a cone as in the French piled-up profiteroles model or a bulging wreath.

Since I was taught the recipe by a pair of Calabrian sisters, I make mine as their mamma makes hers; and this takes the wreath form.

 

Ingredients

  • 2  Tablespoons Semolina
  • 6 Eggs
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar
  • Zest 1 Unwaxed Lemon and Finely Grated
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 3–3⅓ Cups Flour Plus More For Rolling
  • ½ Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 2½–3 Quarts Flavorless Vegetable Oil for Frying
  • 1½ Cups Honey
  • To Decorate use 2 Teaspoons (Approx.) Christmas Sprinkles

 

Method

  • Get out a large, rimmed baking sheet and shake the semolina over the base. And get out another tray (it doesn’t have to be a baking sheet) and line it with a double layer of paper towels. Set both aside while you get on with the dough.

 

  • Beat the eggs, sugar, finely grated lemon zest, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil until frothy.

 

  • Gradually add about 2⅔ cups of the flour and the baking powder, and mix to a dough. If it is too sticky then add more flour and keep kneading.

 

  • Using either your hands or a freestanding mixer fitted with a dough hook, until you have a smooth, pliable dough. This doesn’t take very long: probably around 3 minutes or 5 by hand.

 

  • Flour your work surface and turn out your dough. Then divide the dough into 10 roughly equal pieces, each about the size of a golf ball. Take 1 ball and roll it into a rope approx. ½ inch thick.

 

  • Then with floury hands divide this into about 20 small pieces, and roll each piece between your hands (flouring them again if this helps) to make marble-sized balls. Place the formed balls of dough on the semolina-sprinkled baking sheet, as you shape them.

 

  • Repeat the process with the remaining golf-ball-sized portions of dough: you should make a staggering 200 of the tiny balls!

 

  • Heat the vegetable oil in a wide, heavy pan—about 11 inches diameter and at least 6 inches deep—and then when the oil is at 375°F but no higher (you can leave a preserving or candy thermometer in if you want).

 

  • Or a piece of bread sizzles and browns immediately when dropped in the pan, you can begin to cook the dough balls. Regulate the temperature and keep a careful eye on the pan and the oil all the time.

 

  • Gently lower, using a mesh scoop or perforated spoon, about 15 little dough balls at a time. At first, they will sink and then, as they cook, they’ll float to the surface and begin to turn golden brown.

 

  • This will take up to about 1 minute depending on how many you have in at a time, but be ready to fish them out with your mesh scoop or perforated spoon onto the paper towel-lined tray as soon as they become the right golden color. And keep watching your pan.

 

  • Continue to cook them in batches—making sure the oil returns to the correct temperature but doesn’t get too hot or bubble too vigorously—until they are all fried; you can pile them up on the tray without harm. Now turn off the heat under the oil pan, and move on to the adhesive and assembly stage.

 

  • Pour the honey into a roasting pan that can go on the stove, and heat very gently until it becomes runny—a matter of moments, so do not leave the pan—then take it off the heat.

 

  • Tip all of the fried dough balls into the warmed honey and, using a soft spatula, turn them gently to coat them. Get out a large plate or cake stand with a slight lip or rim and with wet hands

 

  • Check the balls are not too hot then pick up the sticky balls and arrange them around the outer edge of the plate in the shape of a bobbly wreath, leaving just a small empty circle in the middle. Do not worry about symmetry or perfection or counting dough balls here, please.

 

  • Wash the honey from your hands and shake your chosen sprinkles over the sticky wreath, then stand back and admire, before placing your creation where others can do likewise.

 

  • These Struffoli are best, to my mind, eaten on the day they’re made. Use a scoop or spoon and fork to serve. It will be a sticky affair, but that’s part of their charm.

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:17 am

These need almost no introduction. Just look at them. They’re bite-sized, perfect to put together while you’re watching TV, even over a couple of days.

They’re the ultimate party food, slightly fancy, just enough to impress and simple enough that people think “Oh, what a great idea! Why didn’t I think of that?”

You take some peanut butter (you have to test it, just to make sure it’s ok). Then mix it with some sugar and a little butter.

Mix it real good & squish it between two pretzels. That’s stage one done. If you want to take it easy for the rest of the night or head out, that’s alright. They’ll keep just fine in the fridge or freezer.

When you’re ready, dunk half of them in some melted chocolate. I used dark and I think it pairs up well.

And then let the chocolate set. Back in the fridge or freezer until your ready to eat them. And I say ‘them’ because it’s nigh on impossible to simply eat one.

We took them to a ‘bring a plate’ occasion, so we decided to put them in individual patty cases. It worked perfectly.

 

Peanut Butter Pretzel Bites

 

Ingredients

  • 1 C peanut butter, smooth is best, but if you have crunchy, go for it!
  • 2 t butter at room temperature
  • 2/3 C icing sugar
  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • Pretzels (you’ll need at least a bag of the Parkers’ brand)
  • 1 block good quality dark cooking chocolate

 

Process

  • Mix the peanut butter, butter and sugars together until smooth

 

  • Using about 2 tsp worth of mixture, shape them into balls & flatten them slightly (You can put them in the fridge at this point to harden up a little)

 

  •  Sandwich the peanut butter mix between the pretzels

 

  • Place them into the fridge/freezer until you’re ready to coat them in chocolate

 

  • Melt the chocolate over a double boiler (or in the microwave if you’re more comfortable doing that)

 

  • Dunk half the pretzel bites in the melted chocolate and put them on a tray lined with baking paper to set

 

  • These will keep in the fridge or freezer for about a week (if they last that long)

 

Enjoy!

Scandinavian Holiday Bread – Bread Recipe

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:17 am

Ingredients

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour (4 to 5 cups)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 package  Active Dry or Rapid Rise Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk

OR

  • 3/4 cup whipping cream

OR

  • 3/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 3 eggs — at room temperature

 

Procedure

In a large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, cardamom, and salt. Heat milk, water, and butter until very warm (120 to 130 F). Butter does not need to melt.

Gradually add to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.

Add 2 eggs and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. With the spoon, stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.

Knead on the lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 4 to 6 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease top.

Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until almost doubled in size, about 1 to 2 hours. (For Rapid Rise Yeast, cover kneaded dough; let rest on floured surface 10 minutes. Proceed with recipe.)

Punch dough down. On the lightly floured surface, divide dough into 3 equal pieces; roll each to 22-inch rope.

Fold one rope in half; place in the center of the large greased baking sheet with an open end at the bottom. Coil ends up, using one-third of dough at each end.

Wrap second and third ropes around first rope; coil ends up. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until almost doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes.

 

Baking Process

Lightly beat remaining egg; brush on dough. Bake at 350 F for 35 minutes or until done, covering with foil after 25 minutes to prevent excess browning. Remove from baking sheet; cool on the wire rack

Easy Cinnamon Buns Sometimes Called Pull-Aparts – Bread Recipe

Last updated on December 10th, 2019 at 05:17 am

This recipe is so easy a monkey could make it. Hence the name monkey bread, you think? There is a similar recipe called Breakfast Pull-Aparts.

The main difference is nuts and cherries in place of raisins, and corn syrup replaces some of the brown sugar. Both are listed here. Both are equally easy and delicious.

 

“Land of Nod” Cinnamon Buns

  • 20 frozen dough rolls
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1½ cup vanilla instant pudding
  • 1 to 2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1½ cup raisins (optional)
  • 1½ to 1½ cup melted butter

 

Before you put the cat out and turn off the lights, grease a 10″ Bundt pan and add frozen rolls. Sprinkle with brown sugar, pudding powder, cinnamon, and raisins. Pour melted butter over all. Cover with a clean, damp cloth. (Leave out at room temperature.)

Turn out the lights and say goodnight. In the morning, preheat oven to 350� F. and bake for 25 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes and then turn out on a serving plate.

Who would think you could be this organized so early in the a.m.

 

Breakfast Pull-Aparts

  • 20 frozen bread dough rolls
  • 1½ cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup corn syrup
  • 6 tablespoons butter or hard margarine
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1½ cup sliced almonds
  • 1½ cup halved glazed cherries

 

Process

  • Buns can be cut in half for smaller bites.
  • Melt butter in small saucepan. Stir sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.
  • Dip frozen dough buns in butter. Roll in sugar mixture.
  • Put in 10″ greased 12 cup Bundt pan.
  • Sprinkle with 1½ almonds and 1½ cherries. Repeat.
  • Mix corn syrup with remaining butter. Drizzle over top.
  • Cover with the damp tea towel. Let stand for 6 to 8 hours or overnight.

Bake at 350 F. for about 30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Turn onto the plate.
