A multi-purpose sweet spice mix redolent of flavors
in Mexican cooking. I use this spice mix for, but not limited to flavoring coffee before brewing, in a mug of warm rice milk, all sorts of desserts such as brownies, cakes, cookies; baked squash, etc. Gives whatever you're cooking a dash of the exotic.
Bear with me on these, this is one of those recipes that I just throw together and don't really know the exact amount of ingredients I use. So I took a gander here, the best I can tell you is keep tasting and add more of this or that until you get the taste you like. Once you do I promise these will be a BIG hit, they are DELICIOUS! I have made them both cold and warm--I prefer them cold. Enjoy.
Good hot, cold, room temperature. These do not taste like lima beans. They are from my favorite Chinese cookbook, The Key To Chinese Cooking, by Irene Kuo, copyright 1977. I have made nothing from the cookbook that isn't entirely wonderful.
This is a good, basic way to cook cabbage. Sweetened by cooking in generously salted water (believe it or not), meltingly tender and sparked with tasty vinegar and black pepper, this cabbage is good hot or at room temperature. And it holds a week in the refrigerator! Adapted from HGTV website.
A very quick way of cooking carrots for when time is short! I have been using this recipe for 30years LOL.
Edited to add:
I now have a julienne peeler (like a potato peeler only it cuts nice slim sticks) and this recipe is ideal for cooking carrots shredded with it. :)
