This is more of an adult brownie with an unusual twist to it. Look for the boxes of Mexican chocolate with the international foods in your grocery store. This recipe is from "Select", a cooking magazine from my local grocery store chain.
Great for breakfasts, chilly nights, "I don't feel so good" days, and just when you want to relax! Sometimes I like to mix this half and half with coffee. Other times I like to let it cool down and pop it in the blender with some ice cream and make a milkshake! Hot chocolate isn't just for snow-days, you know! ;)
This is a tasty alternative to the pre-made spice mixes with who-knows-what in them. You can adjust the sodium or heat this way, or like me, add extra cumin or whatever you like. It's equally good on vegetables as it is with meat.
This is in response to a recipe request, although I think I've fallen in love with the ingredients! I can't wait to try out this cake, the combination of cream cheese and Mascarpone sounds heavenly! Prep time includes chill time, and the only cook time is to bake the crumb crust.
This is a friend's recipe for Kahlua - it will make several bottles. The alcohol content works out to about 16% (32 proof). A note - this does need to steep for about a month, so if you're planning on making it, start early.
My mom and I have been baking these for as long as I can remember. They are delectable butter-type cookies served as favors at traditional Mexican weddings. They also make a wonderful addition to any Christmas goodie platter.
Great munchies for a party, or just to keep around to snack on or sprinkle over a salad. Don't think of pumpkin seeds just as a Halloween treat--they taste delicious and have many health benefits as well. Adjust the cayenne to suit your own taste and heat tolerance (I used the full amount and next time will probably add more). Adapted from Bon Appetit.
These bars are so very delicious! A little is a lot - if you get my drift? Found this one on the Pillsbury site, as well. We tried these because we were able to do a lot of experimenting during all the Holidays and we are now settling back to normal, with a bunch of new recipes added to our repertoire.
This was prepared at the Pillsbury test kitchens and they named these very, very rich Mexican-inspired bars as a favorite. I did not include the cooling time of 2 hours & 15 minutes.
