The magic of Ponzu is possible in your own kitchen - Fresh is the secret; don't settle for the bottled stuff.
Ponzu sauce is great with all kinds of fish, seafood, meats, and vegetables too. It's also used as a dipping sauce for appetizers and such - Your imagination is your limit.
I don't use Wondra® enough to warrant buying. I found this recipe and it worked so well on fried shrimp and made for a lovely, delicate coating. Can be used in any recipe calling for Wondra® brand instant flour.
If you bake and cook everyday then this is a must to have in your cupboard, it's so much cheaper than using cooking spray and works even better than Pam cooking spray, no chemical fumes and will not leave burnt on black residue on the edges of your pans like cooking spray will and will keep forever in your cupboard --- for baking recipes using chocolate you may use 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder in place of white flour or 1/4 cup each cocoa powder and flour --- this may be increased or decreased sucessfully just make certain that *all* three ingredients are the same amounts or the mixture will not work as well ;-)
An old family recipe from St. John Lutheran Church member, Lillie Kauitzsch, Bartlett, Texas. A much better taste than store bought. I also remember my great-grandmother making noodles like this when I visited her in Oklahoma, many moons ago. Preparations time is an estimate.
It's next to impossible to find ricotta cheese here in Mexico so decided to try the recipe in my Cruising Cuisine cookbook and it's WONDERFUL, and so easy too! Plan to continue to make my own Ricotta even when we get back to the states! I make mine in the crockpot, which pretty much eleminates the possibility of scourching the milk, however it can be made on the stove top, but watch it carefully.
This is a fantastic clone for the store-bought marshmallow fluff and one I have used for years, it's easy to make and so much cheaper than the store-bought, I always use this instead of the real thing and it freezes well also, see note on bottom --- use this in any recipe calling for marshmallow fluff, I have also made this using dark corn syrup it is just a little darker in colour but it works just as well :)
I created this recipe to make Thai Chicken Wings this weekend, and it was great! Use this sauce in any of your Thai recipes asking for Sweet Chili Sauce. This recipe is medium hot, so use the chilis according to your taste! I also use it on my sushi, egg rolls, and spring rolls, and it is incredible!
When your recipe calls for a can of condensed soup, just make your own! This makes the equivalent of one can of condensed soup (10.5 ounces). Note the suggested variations that can be made to this recipe.
Once you have made homemade candied orange OR lemon peel, you will never go back to using commercially produced peel again! This is such an easy recipe & yields enough freshly candied peel to accommodate most of my recipes using peel for quite a few months. You just need to be organised and have an airy & dry room available for the drying process. This peel enhances any recipe calling for peel, and actually TASTES like oranges! I often keep the peel from fresh oranges in a container, in the fridge for up to 3-4 days, until I have enough to handy to make a batch.
Sometimes a recipe will call for a box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix. Here's a clone recipe you can make at home. If another recipe calls for a box of corn muffin mix, leave out egg and milk from this recipe.
This recipe is equal to one 8.5 ounce box of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix. Makes 1-1/2 cups dry muffin mix.
Okay, okay I know. True tiramisu uses mascarpone, but just in case your local Safeway or whatever doesn't carry it, which is often the case, this is a good substitute. I used it in Emeril's tiramisu recipe and it came out very nicely. Just thought this might help someone.
