If you want to have ready-to-bake cookies, you can drop teaspoonfuls of cookie dough onto a baking sheet covered with wax paper or parchment paper and place in the freezer until the dough is firm. Then, place frozen cookie dough in a plastic bag and keep frozen until ready to bake. Drop oven temperature to 350 degrees when baking, and expect the cookies to take a little longer to bake than normal.
This is a delicious wild rice recipe we tend to serve around the holiday season. It's a nice dish because after preparation you just set it in the oven for an hour or so, which leaves you more time to visit with your guests and/or do other things.
Try these as a special treat for the holidays, everyone will love them. They are quite rich so I would suggest to cut into small pieces. I like to use a good quality chocolate, such as Callebaut dessert chocolate chips. These keep well in an airtight container.
This is a rich and sweet cranberry sauce. Great for the holidays.
It is flavored with orange, but has no bitter orange peel, unlike traditional cranberry-orange relish. The port adds substantial complexity to the background.
This soup is a little bit of work, but well worth it in the end. Garnish with lime wedges, sour cream, diced avocado, cilantro sprigs on top. Recipe was adopted and has been edited by me February 2005. This recipe is courtesy of Souther Home by Design.
We always have a lot of people visiting during the holiday season and it's always nice to have a little something homemade on hand to offer. This bread is nice to give away as gifts during the holidays. Delicious plain, with butter or with cream cheese (<-- my personal favorite). Thank you mom for this recipe. :)
Biryani is a combination of rice with meat, chicken, shrimp, vegetables or fish. It is a meal within itself. Don't be put off by the long list of ingredients, it is really an easy dish to prepare and tasty too.
This dish is excellent served with Basmati rice since there will be a little extra sauce to spoon over the chicken and to flavor the rice nicely. This recipe is courtesy of the "Spice of Life Cookbook" by Treva Davis (no longer in print).
