I love cooked plums and raspberries. The orange juice makes this really stand out. I suggest using plums that are just starting to ripen. Also try using frozen raspberries, just let them come to room temp.
For easier chopping, freeze cranberries and chop with food processor fitted with metal blade. Those little suckers like to get away from you. Also, I don't generally like to stuff a bird out of the fear of food poisoning. Other well seasoned chefs know what they're doing though, so I included those instructions too. I like to use Rachel Ray's tip using muffin tins for individual 'Stuffin Muffins'.
Sweet and spicy, just like Me! :) Another take on cranberry salsa. Did you know that fresh cranberries can be stored in your freezer for up to a year? I usually keep them on hand for pancakes or muffins. This is a great addition to any holiday buffet.
Hey I live near Door County, how can I not have a few cherry recipes here? This cake is cool. The cherries sink to the bottom and the marshmallows melt and rise to the top for a glaze on this easy, tasty cake! *Note: I used a Betty Crocker Super Moist White cake mix for this. Other types of Cake mixes with pudding in the mix may require additional baking time. EDIT: The marshmallow flavor isn't really pronounced. It's the magic in how they rise up make everything come together.
My favorite kind of martini is one that I can eat more than drink! This is not one of those quicky drinks to throw together, but rather it is one you plan a bit for a party or dinner. I found this fabulous little drink online while researching the Greek food of Saganaki which is a fried cheese dish that can be served in various ways. I suggest that you paste the word Saganaki into the search above and check out some of the different styles the great Zaar chefs have here.
You can add some soda to this if you need to, but this is no bathtub cocktail! During Prohibition you cannot waste your time drinking a lighter drink. Lillet is a blend of rigorously selected wines and fruit liqueurs, aged in oak vats for around 12 months. Lillet Blanc has a golden color with candied orange, honey, pine resin, lime and fresh mint aromas. This is the stuff in the James Bond cocktails like the Vesper.
This recipe is from an old cookbook I found. Homemade wine or beer was legal as long as it contained no more than one-half per cent alcohol. From Every Woman's Cook Book by Mrs. Chas. F. Moritz (1926) p. 617. If you can find a bootlegger in your area, I think some rum or whiskey would really perk this up. This recipe makes a LOT! Please keep this in mind when preparing this party punch for your local Speakeasy :)
Duck confit - seasoned duck leg quarters slowly roasted in duck fat - is fully cooked and can be found in the meat section of specialty grocers. Look for egg roll wrappers in the international freezer section or near the tofu products. Pomegranate concentrate can be found in many markets and Middle Eastern specialty stores. If plating the Crispy Duck Rolls with a green salad, double the dipping sauce. If there is extra sauce, you can make vinaigrette - whisk in about half the volume of fruity extra virgin olive oil, then season to taste.
This is another one of those recipes that only looks like a fancy pants dinner. This cannot be easier. The tastes combine to make one great steak. Who could resist tenderloin with bacon AND cheese? Vegetarians, please close your eyes. I am not exactly sure on the grilling times, please let me know how long it took.
This recipe is from an old cookbook I found. This is a Prohibition recipe because it calls for wine, so they had to use homemade wine. Home made wine or beer was legal as long as it contained no more than one-half per cent alcohol. From Every Woman's Cook Book, by Mrs. Chas. F. Moritz (1926) p. 457-458. The amounts in the ingredients look like estimates, much like my Gamma's recipes. She never measured anything so when she gave me her recipes it was all guesses and also from me watching her.
