Alton once posted this on his website and said that he always cranks out a bushel or two of it during the holidays. He also said "Dole this stuff out carefully. It is highly habit forming." I totally agree and for this reason have no earthly idea how many servings it makes! Depends on how much you can eat! LOL Especially good to anyone who likes the salty-sweet combination. Cooking time is cooling time.
This recipe came from a children's book that someone at the school that I worked at copied for all the staff. It came with a small story of how an Italian woman in the author's parish would make many of these loaves to give out to the children to celebrate St. Joseph's Day. The bread is very moist and delicious.
If you are having a buffet, think of baked potatoes. Serve them along with three toppings to choose from. Also, this idea makes a great gift to pass along to someone. Decorate a basket and a sign saying "Baked Potato Kit" and in it put 6 baking potatoes and little jars of toppings which you have labeled and tied with pretty twine.
Per Google.com, the #1 recipe for Beer Bread in the world! There are a few recipes for beer bread out there, but none as simple (and tasty!) as this one. You can even mix it in the baking pan for easy cleanup. This is sensational when served with soups or just as a snack, but don't expect it to be around very long when your family gets a taste of it! Be sure to use a sheet pan on the shelf below the pan to catch any excess butter that may drip during cooking.
I made a gift basket using this soup mix. The idea and recipe are adapted from Diane Phillips's book, The Perfect Mix. I put the jar of black beans, jar of spice mixture, and a jar of California Corn Bread Mix, #72132 into a brightly colored basket along with a reggae music CD. Decorated with colorful ribbon. Looked cool and it made a great gift.
Of every recipe ever given to me, I am most grateful for this one. I am happy to share it with you. I can also quit fretting that I will loose the slip of paper it was written on 10 yrs. ago, and find it on my favourite recipe site.
This is excellent, makes a lot, and keeps well. Be sure to follow the directions. I had it go sugary on me once and I believe it was because I tried to mix the water in too fast. Number of servings is difficult to decide - it has so many uses and sometimes I put a tablespoon over ice cream and sometimes I use a cup or more for recipes calling for caramel sauce. But since Zaar makes me pick a number I picked 48.
A great gift or make ahead for a real time-saver for your own kitchen. For vegetarian chili, substitute canned or sautéed mushrooms for the ground beef. Give with my moist northern cornbread mix or serve with Recipe #260739.
This makes an excellent gift. Make sure you make some for yourself too though because it really smells wonderful. Please note, you need to use whole cloves. Ground cloves are much stronger and will definitely overwhelm the other scents. If you aren't a fan of cloves, feel free to leave them out entirely. I do sometimes.
Get ready for the holidays!! I know a company that sells these for $7 each but I like to include them in holiday baskets. I like to make these for the kids to have cider during the fall and winter holidays as a tradition in our very new household. They are very cute and great as a gift. Tie with a festive ribbon and attached to a bottle of apple juice along with the directions. Also these can be made inexpensively if you purchase your spices from a store selling them in bulk by weight.
Once you do the prep, divide into 3 airtight containers, for here it is only 20 mins to the table whenever you need it. I have three-seasoned rice mix recipes see which one you like best. Look for the other two Chicken Flavored and Onion Flavored Rice Mix.
Saw Rachael Ray and Oprah make this on an Oprah holiday party show. It took me 7 minutes, but who's counting! To give as a gift, wrap in cellophane and tie with a bow. Add an ornament or candy cane to make it festive. Variations include Recipe #146386 and Recipe #146387.
