Quite a while back, I was visiting my friend Katy, and started flipping through pages of her Kenmore microwave book. At that time I was "playing" with all kinds of Chinese recipes, so I copied this recipe for hoisin sauce. I've had a request to post it here on Zaar.
I love ranch dressing, but it's not available in Israel. They've never even heard about it! I found this somewhere on the Internet about 10 years ago. My veggie daughter loves this on tomatoes. I like it on potato latkes, of all things.
Freezing is a simple and excellent way to preserve fresh culinary herbs. Packing in ice cube trays makes it easy to always have fresh herbs on hand, adding fresh herb flavor to soups, sauces, and drinks. Some people prefer to freeze in a good quality olive oil, I prefer the boiling water method, which is listed in this recipe here today. You can freeze herbs individually or in combinations of other herbs.
Smokey chipotle chiles in a rich tomato sauce spiced with vinegar,garlic and onion and lightly sweetened with dark brown sugar. Refrigerator in an airtight container. To make a spicy sauce blend cooked, seeded chipotle in a blender till smooth. You can add back some seeds for heat and texture.
This is a favorite of my mom's. She is a cooking show fanatic and on 'farmer vision' this was practically the only one available to watch! Unsure about actual serving size, depending on what it is used for.
Here's a recipe for roasted garlic without added fat and roasted in it's own skin to retain moisture. This is a great for roasting garlic, so it can be ready when you start cooking in the evening. I've even done it overnight and started cooking in the morning. Mashed potatoes, add to some extra virgin olive oil a touch of salt for a great dip in bread, mix into dressings for veggies or top some broiled fish or meats. Roasted garlic goes great with mashed potatoes, on pasta, or simply spread on crusty bread. Perfect for making garlic bread! I've made 1/3 the recipe in a mini crock pot with great results!
This takes only minutes to make, it's a great addition to top off your almost finished store-bought syrup to increase the quantity although I must say it's actually good enough to use on it's own just as a syrup, this will thicken in up the fridge --- you will love this!
This recipe is from www.kitchenmixes.com. It is a great substitute for the boxed onion soup mix. It equals one packet or about 1-1/4 ounces. You can add garlic powder or other seasonings if you wish. It also makes a great gift for cooks. Make up some packets of onion soup mix, add a soup ladel, soup bowls, soup spoons, recipes, and some non-perishable ingredients. Place in a basket or pretty box wrapped in a tea towel.
