This log looks amazing cut into slices. Choose a good quality chocolate for this recipe. I use this recipe sometimes as a christmas log. Some amaretti biscuits are naturally gluten free because they are made with apricot kernels, sugar and egg whites so this can easily become a wheat free recipe.
Figs, dates, pomegranates and grapes were the only fruits that could be grown in the hot climate. From: Ancient Egyptian Food and Drink. This recipe was from 1600BC and was found on an ostraca. *NOTE* There are no times given but I'm thinking it would go pretty quickly with the food processor.
What could be a more romantic way to end a dinner than with truffles. I came across this quote recently-
"The truffle is not exactly an aphrodisiac, but it tends to make women more tender and men more likeable." - by French gastronome Brillat-Savarin
These are so good, and best of all they are quick and easy to make. They are also very easy to double...and believe me, after you taste these you will wish you had doubled the recipe...I hope you enjoy these amazing squares as much as we do. Please note* there is no baking time.
Someone gave us a gift of these delicious orange slices. These tangy oranges and creamy chocolate are an unbeatable combination. They look fancy and colorful, and are easy to make. A Christmas favorite. These do take a while to make but are well worth it. The orange slices are delicious even without the chocolate. Drying time not included in time. NOTE: When cooking the orange slices DO-NOT STIR. If someone is helping you make sure they do not stir just them push down on the orange slices as recipe says. :) I cut the slices in half again after cooking.
from rachel ray magazine october 2010. like the old school candy buttons you'd pull of of the long white paper strips! :) time is 30 minutes prep time, NOT including standing time. playing with different food colorings is highly encouraged!! i cant wait to add my own flavorings!! :)
