These little puffs are wonderful as a pre-dinner nibbler, appetizer or as part of a buffet table. You can make them ahead and re-heat in 5-7 minutes. For some reason the amount of garlic does not show up in the recipe - it is 2 tsp or to taste (I add more)
We have a lovely lady at my workplace that spoils us rotten. She will make cookies in our kitchen and come around with these little treats mid mornings. She makes the cookies with margarine - the recipe calls for butter. The recipe also called for 1/2 cup walnuts in the last step which I have omitted.
My daughters (8 and 6 years) have been experimenting with different smoothies and this is their favorite 'potion'. Any fruit can be used in place of the strawberries. The flaxseed meal adds a nice crunch and is also a great substitute for fish in the daily diet as it carries same benefits. It is tasteless and can be added to many different kinds of foods (cereal, yoghurt, smoothies, meat sauces etc)
These pancakes are served as a dessert in Denmark and the traditional filling is jam and sugar; but you can really add anything to your liking. We also eat them for breakfast. They freeze well for up to 3 months, I place parchment paper between the pancakes and you can easily remove them from the bag even when frozen
This receipe is simple, yeast, water, flour and salt. The key to the crustiness is to brush the bread with water just before it is placed in the oven. I brush the baguette lightly with salted butter just after baking; it adds a little something
Really yummy. From Cooking Light. In the recipe below I have increased the baking time from the original recipe by 15 min. You should check the cake while cooking to find the best time of cooking for your oven.
A super delicious dessert from Mexico; easy to prepare and pretty to look at. The dessert salsa takes advantage of whatever fruit is in season, but it traditionally includes at least some strawberries. Spoon it over ice cream or pound cake. Preparation time does not include 1 hour needed for chilling. From 'Salsa Cooking'
This is my mother-in-laws recipe and it is hands down amazing. You can find the recipe for the crust among my other recipes.Some pie trivia - pies with no top should have the crust prebaked; but pies with a top should not be baked prior to filling is added.
These muffins are very quick and easy to make. I have gradually reduced the oil in this recipe to 1 tbsp to have a lower fat muffin. You may want to start with more oil (2 tbsp) to find your preferred texture.
This is my Mother-in-law's recipe and it is amazing. A delicious, flaky crust. The yield is for 3 pie shells. You can freeze the pie dough in balls or rolled out and placed in pie tins.UPDATE April 2011 - I am changing the yield to 6 pie shells instead of 3, since this is what you can get if you roll them thin and have no top/lid on the pie. If you want your crust thicker then you would get less yield
These cookies are our very favorite Christmas cookies. My husband has been making these with our kids since the oldest was just 1 1/2 years. They are amazing - chocolaty, fudgy and moist. A true winning combination. The dough needs to be refrigerated for 2 hours which is not included in the prep time. Cookies can be frozen for about a month and will last in airtight container for about a week (although we never actually have been able to test this time because the cookes are gone in no time).

These cookies are a stable at any Danish baker's shop. We always make these as part of our Christmas cookie selection. They are small and yummy. If you can you should weigh the ingredients instead of using cups, as the original recipe is measured by weight. Prep time does not include 30 min for cooling of the dough. When buying the marzipan try to look for Danish 'Odense' marzipan in your baking isle. Marzipan from other countries, such as Germany, tend to be sweeter than the ones from Denmark. The marzipan makes the difference in this cookie and adds to the wow factor. You can also make 20 larger hats instead of 40 mini
These chocolate trees are beautiful on top of cheese cakes, other desserts or as a garnish for ice cream. The possibilities are endless, really. I added water (for boiling) as an ingredient becasuse Zaar will not let me enter a recipe with only one ingredient ;)
