I live in Southwestern Indiana and am amazed by how many Hoosiers adore anything "Red Velvet". I have been making this cookie recipe for the holidays for friends, family and clients, and I can't make enough. Please enjoy this recipe as much as they do.
My Grandma Marion always had gingersnap cookies ready for our visits during the fall. I recently found this recipe in Cook's Illustrated Magazine Nov-Dec '11and it made my mouth salivate. I've made this recipe many times with consistant results. I hope that you enjoy this recipe as much as I do.
My wife wanted some new "comfort food" recipes, and as diabetics we needed to watch the carbs and calories. This is my take on recipe 21706. My "taste test dummies" all have wanted more each time I have made it. Please enjoy!
I found a zucchini cookie recipe in the newspaper, made it for my wife and she ate three cookies before they had cooled. I decided to change some of the ingredients without changing her desire to eat them as fast as I can make them. This recipe has "it's a keeper" from all of my "taste test dummies" that have volunteered to try them. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. P.s. my neighbors 3 year old son won't eat zucchini, but stuffs himself with these cookies.
I was making my usual pancakes for my wife birthday when I decided to try something different. I added unsweetened cocoa powder to the pancake mix. The next thing I know my wife is peering over my shoulder saying "I smell chocolate!!" We had no left-overs that day, and hardley any since. These freeze well after cooking and make an excellent quick breakfast when toasted from the freezer.
My wife and I wanted French Onion Soup that was simple and tasty. This recipe was made with regular yellow onions and our home made bread, BUT the real taste is caramelizing the onions and garlic. This will make the onions very sweet with no additional sugar. Please enjoy this soup that made our taste bud tingle.
I found this cookie recipe in the local newspaper courtsey of Sarah Wade. It sounded wonderful, however she didn't include raisins in this oatmeal cookie recipe (which to me is wrong on so many levels). I also felt that 1 tablespoon of baking soda had to be a mistake, so I made a few adjustments and a major compromise with my wife (about the raisins) to create my version of her "Almost Everything Cookies" We will add 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans to the recipe occasionally.
I wanted a simple baked donut recipe, and created this recipe from a couple of other recipes. My wife found Petit Donut Baking pans (they are about the size of the Hostess Mini-donuts). I bring powdered sugar in a shaker for those that want extra sweetness, however I don't taste a difference.
This recipe is as close to foolproof as I have ever made. I have never made an edible cookie, and my wife of 32 years has always had difficulty makeing sugar cookies, so when I found this recipe in Cook,s Illustrated, I was amazed with how well this worked. I made some tweeks to lower the sugar amount and added cinnamon to change the flavor and look. Please enjoy!
