ghee is wonderful for baking, frying, even taking straight for ayurvedic medicine. all the good fat is there without the proteinaceous impurities of butter. if you are a vata type like me, eating ghee often is enjoyable and healthful!
I like this recipe because it's simple and uses ingredients I always have on hand. I got it from my dad, I can't say for sure where it originally came from, but maybe from a Betty Crocker cookbook. This dough also works well for making meat pies.
These potato chips are very easy to make in the microwave. Also, they are healthier for you as they are not cooked in any oils. This method has intrigued so many people that have tasted them and then made them for themselves. The younger people just love them.
One of the easiest ways to save money on your family's grocery bill is by purchasing foods in bulk when they go on sale. When ground meat goes on sale, rather than just stocking up to store in the freezer "as is," many cooks find it helpful to prepare meat mixes for using later in their favorite family recipes. By preparing this recipe for All-Purpose Ground Meat Mix, you'll be ready to fix any number of tasty ground meat recipes without needing to brown the meat, onions and spices each time you cook. Not only will this technique save you money, it saves time too. The following recipe is from the book "Frozen Assets: How to Cook for a Day and Eat for a Month"
Easiest chicken marinade that gives you very moist and tasty chicken, especially when grilled. I got this recipe from a person my husband worked with about 11 years ago and I never grill my chicken any other way. Cook time includes marinating time.
I "borrowed" this recipe from the kitchen at my college because I fell in love with these bars. They are so much better than store-bought, and you can add or subtract ingredients as you wish. They make a perfect on-the-go snack; a much healthier alternative to chips or cookies, especially for kids (Great for lunch boxes!)
This wine is ready to drink and bottle in 11 days. The older it gets the better it's quality. I got this recipe from the University of Minnesota. A note with the recipe said it was from a small family vineyard in France. I made a 5 gallon batch one year and gave it for gifts until I ran out 31/2 years later. One of the recipients was my priest. After Christmas mass the year I ran out, He stopped me to thank me for his gift but told me he missed my gift of wine that year. I told him I ran out. He then told me he had to call the local liquor store to open up so he could buy wine for Christmas Masses as he had been using my wine for communion wine on Christmas for the past 3 years. I felt so honored that my wine was used in such a special way. Number of servings is based on number of 4 ounce servings per gallon of wine. I use beer bottles It seems just enough for 2 for a meal. I use quart bottles for gifts. Be sure to store wine bottles on their side so the corks do not dry out.
This is an eggless version of Irish Cream Liqueur which uses Rye whiskey. I would think you could substitute your favorite whiskey (Scotch, Bourbon or Irish) for the rye if you prefer.
