This is the best Alfredo sauce ever. This is several recipes combined into one. You can also add your choice of meat (chicken, shrimp or even crab). The closest OLIVE GARDEN is an hour away and I will never drive that far again just for Alfredo sauce. I promise this is the best sauce ever. Definitely a dish you would want to impress your guest with.
We ALL have had lemon curd - on scones, biscuits, and tarts, but this is an altogether different taste sensation. It isn't really tart (but definitely NOT sweet. Before you start. sterilize enough small jars with metal caps, (OLD jelly jars) - to hold 4 cups of curd. I usually just put them through the dishwasher on HOT, and leave them in there to stay warm.
Will hold in refrigerator about 2 weeks.
An original recipe from Tabitha Alterman. She says, "This spice blend can be used to impart Thai flavor to meat and seafood, or veggies or grains. You can, also, use it as a dry rub. To make an easy Thai marinade, toss a generous scoop of this seasoning mixture into creamy coconut milk."
Although I included this with my recipe for crab cakes, its many other uses get overlooked. The true garlic lover will use this with any kind of fish cakes or loaves, burgers, sandwiches, meatloaf, wings, veggies, etc., etc.
When you're out of mayonnaise, blend a batch of this Homemade Mayonnaise in under 1 minute. Because of the raw egg, this is not recommended for very young children or elderly persons, although washing the egg shell reduces the chance for contamination.
I went on a cruise and became obsessed with a particular sandwich. It had a very similar pesto mayo to this one. I put it on ciabatta bread with fresh mozzarella, fresh basil leaves, and tomato slices. Enjoy.
Why bother with store-bought purchased expensive Dijon mustard when you can make it yourself and it tastes just as good if not better, I know I make it all the time! --- plan well ahead this mustard needs to marinate in the fridge for 2 weeks before using the longer you leave it in the fridge the better it will be!
This is a recipe very similar to the bread dipping oil they give you at Bravo (an Italian chain restaurant in the USA). My hubby loves it. Serve with rosemary foccacia as they do at Bravo or with your favorite bread (I love french bread or sourdough bread with this). If you like things spicy, feel free to add some crushed red pepper.
This is a recipe for homemade tahini from The Frugal Gourmet Cooks Three Ancient Cuisines NOTE: Since I have not made this, I could not tell you what the amount it yields is. The recipe says 4 servings, but I don't know what that is based on.
Demi-glace is traditionally made by combining veal stock and espagnole and then simmering it until reduced by half to make a thick, rich sauce. Due to the considerable effort involved in making the traditional demi-glace, this simple stock reduction is a common substitute. Julia Child referred to this as a "semi-demi-glace".
This sauce is so YUMMY!! It was originally a topping for bread pudding(check out my recipe for that too!) but this is too delicious to hide in another recipe. I use it to top so many thing but my favorite is for ice cream! I also usually double the recipe.
