From Food Network's Good Eats: Zen and the Art of Omelet. I remember Alton saying that besides a decent pan, a good silicon spatula was ideal for omelet making. Substitute another favorite fresh herb if you wish;-French tarragon, parsley, chervil, etc. My husband swears by this recipe. Makes one omelet, but there is plenty for two people to share. Here it is, virtually verbatim:
I found this recipe on the web and posted it in response to a request. I have not as yet tried it. The recipe did not specify how much beef soup base to use. I'd suggest starting with enough to flavor the 1 cup of water and maybe a tad more.
These are not popovers and have nothing to do with bread. These are very quick snacks that you can whip up during commercial breaks when you are watching TV and you feel like something cheesy. Vary the taste with different types of cheeses.
This recipe calls for Mexican cajeta (caramel topping). If you cannot find this in your supermarket, substitute Smucker's Caramel topping, however the Mexican cajeta has a richer flavor. This is very easy to make, and super good. Use it with your next Mexican Fiesta!!
Having grown up with these, I didn't realize that most folks have never heard of a wet burrito. It is a meat and bean (or all meat or all bean) burrito with a spicy gravy and cheese on top. They are available here in many restaurants, and no self respecting bar would be without one on the menu, lol! Once you try them, you'll never go back to "dry" burritos again! Don't let the long list of directions scare you, these are easy!
I tested 8 different butter cookie recipes, looking for the "perfect" butter cookie. It had to be buttery, a little crumbly (like shortbread), and not too sweet. This is the winner. I think these are the Worlds Best Butter Cookie, courtesy of Chef Alice Medrich.
This is an elegant dish. The first time I made them, my husband thought I picked them up from a restaurant. Was he ever surprised! This would make a nice romantic dinner with candlelight! The recipe seems long but it includes a recipe for the filling, the Mornay Sauce, and crepes themselves.
This the only recipe I use for everything now. If you live outside Canada your flour may not have the high protein/gluten that our Canadian milled flours have. You may wish to use bread flour. Makes delicious cinnamon buns also.
When we visited Williamsburg VA, we went to all the inns and taverns in the historic district. Then we bought a cookbook and made a new Thanksgiving tradition centered around many of the historic recipes. This is our Thanksgiving soup.
Talk about a simple solution to dessert! No recipe could be easier or more tasty! Chess pie is typically a very sweet pie with a dense consistency. Allow to cool completely. You may want to chill before serving a thin slice. From The Carriage House in Norfolk, Virginia.
This recipe is our favorite from The Williamsburg Cookbook. We had to buy the cookbook after having this at the King's Arms Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg. It is quite tasty served hot with toasted breadsticks (see recipe titled "Colonial Soup-Servers") This soup can be served hot or cold. It is even good re-heated.
