These delicate cake-like cookies are glazed with icing and topped with colorful candy sprinkles. They have a mild anise flavoring, which is very typical of Italian baked goods. My family always served these cookies at holidays, weddings or special celebrations, but now that I know the recipe, I can enjoy them all year long!
I couldn't believe how dirty my watch and silver jewelry were when I tried this. Yuck! This saves money and is safe for you and the environment. The solution can be very drying to your hands so consider using rubber gloves or even tweezers to handle the jewelry. This recipe is from wire-sculpture.com.
An old recipe from my MIL Libby.The directions for baking are not here as she used a wood stove. Watch them as I am guessing on the time and temperature. She made these a lot when Rudy was growing up. They are wonderful. She loves anything with coconut. Her Mother kept a jar of it just for her.
This is my grandmother's recipe which I have adapted slightly - my Mum also makes this regularly! There is no fat, butter or oil in this lovely, moist Tea Bread, making it a treat that can be enjoyed on a regular basis. Feel free to use your favourite tea, I often make this with Earl Grey and Lapsang Souchong. Also make sure that the fruit soaks for at least 12 hours - that's what plumps up the fruit and keeps this Tea Bread so moist. I have never felt the need to add spices, the taste of the tea and the fruit is tasty enough. This makes two loaves - they keep well in a tin or can be frozen with great success.
These eggs are poached in a delicious in a pepper ragout. This dish, with many variations, is a popular breakfast in North Africa, especially in Algeria and Tunisia. Most recipes include the eggs, but they can actually be left out as well for Vegetarians that do not eat eggs. VARIATION: Sometimes fresh shrimp or a spicy lamb sausage called merguez is added to the simmering peppers along with the eggs.
The "chili" in this recipe comes from Thai sweet chili sauce and it gives this dish both sweetness and a very slight touch of heat. When I make this for my family I omit the spinach and cilantro, and I often substitute a sweet onion for the green onions. Easily doubled. Adapted from Bonnie Stern.
Great with Salsa, Guacamole, Hummus, whatever you like to dip! Super fast and easy with oil spray. Makes great cinnamon sugar chips for kids and desserts, too. *** Can substitute pita bread for pita chips or corn tortillas for corn chips.
