Warning: if you try this recipe, you'll never again trust a bartender to mix your mojito.
I was fed up with mediocre bar mojitos, and decided to learn to make a traditional one myself. After much research, I think I've arrived at perfection. Try it for yourself!
Notes: Real sugar cane syrup really does make a difference. Any good liquor store will have it. Use mineral water with a high effervescence, like Perrier. You want a bit of texture to your mojito to balance the sweetness.
This recipe for shrimp cocktail is way better than any cold recipe I have ever tried! I saw it on Food Network by Ina of Barefoot Contessa... The shrimp is so flavorful!! The original recipe also included a cocktail sauce, but they were so good, we didn't even need sauce!
I have not tried this recipe. I got it from Copy Kat Chat. Pam Chamberlin submitted this recipe. "The use of lemon cake mix, lemon gelatin, lemon extract and fresh lemon juice make this cake a lemon-lover's dream. It's also amazingly easy." This was made for an employees birthday and she requested a Lemon Pound cake like Publix makes. I found this recipe and we were all very greatful I did. It was extremely moist and flavorful. Changes made, I used pudding instead of jello and I didn't use the lemon extract. I also reduced the cooking time to 40-45 min. The glaze was perfect by adding a little zing to the bite. After I glazed it I dusted it with powdered sugar.
Yeah Mon! This cool and refreshing fruit salsa is a perfect side accompaniment for tempering the heat of your favorite grilled jerk seasoned meat. Cooking time is the time to chill. Submitted for RSC #8.
