Similar to Zingerman's yummy loaf...a not-too-sweet bread studded with bits of bittersweet chocolate and dried cherries. Add some toasted pecan pieces for some extra crunch, or leave them out; your choice. Prep time does not include 2 to 3 hours of rising time.
Chocolate and Raspberry - a match made in heaven. This is a plain cheesecake filled with chocolate-raspberry "truffles" and gilded with a chocolate ganche on top. Rich! Use chocolate cookie crumbs for the crust (I've used Oreos, filling and all) or the alternate chocolate shortbread crust given below. Cook times includes cooling and chilling time.
An elegant but simple way to serve asparagus, this timbale is like a sturdy souffle that holds its "breath". And you can use up less-than-perfect spears; use a vegetable peeler to peel the tougher stalks so they will be tender. A stick blender does a nice job pureeing the mixture.
While visiting my daughter in Germany, we were given a basketful of fresh red currants, a sweet-tart berry, and tried this recipe on a whim. It was wonderful! The currants kept their fresh flavor and the pie/cake was a perfect base. Back home, I'm going to try the same recipe with fresh strawberries, then fresh blueberries, then fresh raspberries...
An old-fashioned twist on the classic apple dessert. You may replace the sugar with splenda, if you like - or reduce the sugar to your tastes - it's the cream that makes this pie special. Guild the lily with ice cream at serving time, but its very rich and can stand on its own!
Here is Alton's method for making a nice creamy bowl of hearty steel-cut oats. His recipe adapts perfectly to overnight soaking. I followed the recipe through adding the boiling water, then cover it (heat off) and head to bed. In the morning, I add the milk and simmer for 10 minutes. Delicious!
Hamburger and baked beans atop a soft bun loaded with cheese. It sounds strange but my daughters all loved these growing up, and it wasn't easy finding something they all would eat. You can put this filling on any kind of bread - I've used hotdog buns in a pinch, English muffins, or left-over split Parker House rolls. You can also use any cheese you prefer, including slices of American or Velveeta.
This is Purdue's Master Mix, enriched with whole dried milk. Ive posted the large batch as well, but not all households are as big (or hungry) as mine. Substitute whole wheat (pastry) flour for up to half of the all-purpose flour, if desired. To use the large batch recipe, see recipe #360070
This is Purdue's Master Mix, enriched with whole dried milk. Use 5 lbs. of flour and 2 pounds of shortening - no need to use measuring cups! Substitute whole wheat (pastry) flour for up to half of the all-purpose flour, if desired.
The Vineyard restaurant serves this salad as its house salad - but I've been making this low carb salad long before I had it at the VIneyard. I post it here to keep it handy - and to verify the carb count.
