This exotic martini is made with Amarula Cream Liqueur from South Africa. After watching the great fun the chimps were having eating the Marula fruit on a cable program, I had to buy a bottle. If you enjoy the flavors of caramel with hints of chocolate and vanilla -- this liqueur made from a special fruit found only in one location in Africa is for you -- Go buy a bottle ... You can thank me later.
These eggs are poached in a delicious in a pepper ragout. This dish, with many variations, is a popular breakfast in North Africa, especially in Algeria and Tunisia. Most recipes include the eggs, but they can actually be left out as well for Vegetarians that do not eat eggs. VARIATION: Sometimes fresh shrimp or a spicy lamb sausage called merguez is added to the simmering peppers along with the eggs.
When I was a bartender people always commented that I made the best mixed drinks. One of my requested mixed drinks was my version of the Amaretto Sour. My “secret” was the addition of 7-Up which I think gave the drink a gentle fizz that broke up the syrupy sweetness of the drink. I usually made my own sour mix, which was nothing more then Country Time Lemonade (another “secret”) or would mix lemon juice with some granulated sugar -- and shake vigorously. You can also use store bought sour mix.
This is a delicious coffee Adult milkshake! The recipe uses Amarula Cream Liquor from South Africa. It is sold at most liquor stores. The frappé looks great in a highball glass with a long stem or large mouth wine goblet. If you love chocolate and coffee... this shake is for you!
For our 5 year olds lunch box for either snack time or lunch for his first year at kindergarten that are reasonably healthy but will bring a smile to his face when he finds them. Snacks cannot have peanuts or peanut butter this year. This recipe would also be good for long car trips.
This is a favorite around here! Wonderful flavor! This recipe makes twice as much dressing as you will need for the coleslaw. Keep the extra on hand for tossing with rice noodle salads, serving as a dip for crudités or spooning over broiled or sautéed fish. So good. This recipe is from July 2004 of Food and Wine. MAKE AHEAD: The dressing can be refrigerated for up to 1 week.
Easy salad or appetizer that can be doubled or tripled for a crowd. This salad is really pretty when using the red jalapeños. Can also be made with diced red pepper for those afraid of the heat. Ensalada De Aguacate Con Jalapeños
I purchased some Black-Olive paste for the Stocking Swap with mama's kitchen (Hope)and of course had to get one for myself. This is a recipe I found and adapted that uses the wonderful paste. The original recipe was by Jimmy Bradley, co-owner of of Chelsea's wonderful Red Cat at The Mermaid Inn.
This a pretty layered shot using Absinthe, Bailey's and Kahlua. It was pretty smooth and the absinthe has a surprisingly light liquorice finish. Pour liquor on an upside down spoon over glass to keep the liquors separated.
This is such and easy way to dress up a baked potato, visually and deliciously! The recipe is by Marcia Kiesel from Quick Flavor Fixes. Recipe Variations: You can use the butter on roasted baby potatoes, pasta or even grilled seafood. Note: I made this recipe with frozen corn in the past. I think it is better with fresh....but in a pinch frozen (completely thawed) would do.
I created this layer shot after trying an Amarula drink recipe with these liquors. Pretty shot and tastes great too! Amarula can be found along side Kahlua in most liquor stores. It is a creamy liqueur with a caramel flavor made from the marula fruit.
After playing around making several layered shots using Amarula, I decided to make one that I thought would be pretty and certainly taste good! It is a 5 layer banana split and it is yummy! It just seems like Amarula makes everything taste so good! If you have never tried it... I would suggest getting a bottle!
This recipe is like a cross between crisp waffles and warm banana bread. I like my waffles crispy and the amount of butter in this batter gives these wonderful waffles a nice crisp. Beverage Recommendation: The toasted pecans and the sweet waffles pair nicely with a frothy cafe con leche (steamed milk added to a shot of espresso) or a mug of your favorite java.
