Made this up when I had a glut of both ingredients one summer. It's very moist and is best, I think, when served cold from the refrigerator. Makes 2 loaves so you can share with a friend. This is actually easier to mix by hand than with an electric mixer.
Saw this on Paula Deen's show and had to try it. Uses refrigerated biscuit dough. I reduced the amount of sugar - the original recipe called for 1/2 cup sugar with the blueberries which was very sweet. The warm, bubbling blueberries are just wonderful.
This is so simple, but looks so pro. I looked at other recipes for puffs, but they seemed very involved. Suzi was the mother of 4 children under 4 (years of age) when I met her, and she always managed to have something special to share from her kitchen. I use these for appetizers and fill with chicken salad or egg salad.
Mini treats with the flavor of fresh blueberries and loaded with fiber. A wonderful way to begin your morning! Adapted from a weight loss websites email newsletter.
Prep Tip: Color, not size, tells you which blueberries are the ripest. Look for berries that are deep purple to blue-black.
Serving Tip: Spread the warm halves of each muffin with a little mashed, ripe banana instead of butter.
These lovely little cornmeal muffins have quite a kick to them, it's the jalapeno peppers! A very simple and easy recipe that goes so well with chili, stews, soups, chilli con carne or when served as an appetiser snack - split them in two and spread with savoury butters or serve with dips. I made these up as an experiment, and they turned out so well, that I am on my third batch already!
This banana bread is "number one" to me. I used to throw banana bread away after the first couple slices, since it never lived up to my expectations. I save the last sliver of this one, carefully wrapped in plastic, and savor the last bite. The loaf bakes up evenly in the pan, making less of a peaked top. I believe it is the 3 eggs that does this. You will not find a gummy center in the middle of this loaf. Look on the Williams Sonoma website for a photo. To ensure consistency I use very ripe bananas and measure them mashed.
This recipe was given to me by a dear friend, who passed away a couple of years ago. I liked it so much that she used to give it to me as a birthday present! It's very rich, so I like to cut it into very small squares for serving. It also freezes very well.
This is really more a tip than a recipe - It is so ridiculously easy. After hunting high and low for the recipe for restaurant yeast rolls/bread that are served in many chain restaurants & steakhouses, I was astonished to learn that very often they merely use pre-made ordinary yeast dough and honey flavored margarine - The secret "recipe" I had been searching for was actually just a method.
This quite possibly might be the best cornbread you will ever have, it bakes out high, light and fluffy, it really should be called a corn cake lol! The jalapenos can be substituted with one small finely chopped green bell pepper, or one 4-ounce can green chilies, drained. Since I prefer the taste of olive oil I used that instead of the melted butter, this is a recipe of Paula Deen's tweeked slightly I think for the better ;-)
