Not something you would ever find in a fast food restaurant, these chickies pack a punch of flavor, and are very pretty too, on their bed of fresh spinach. For couth guests only! ;-)
Note: I get the greatest grated ginger (how's that for alliteration?) by freezing the ginger root first and then grating it on a Microplane zester.
Every little Jewish kid who grew up in the States always had a Candy Man in shul. He was the old guy who always had hard candies in his pocket for the kids. And those candies usually were the hard little sesame brittle bars that got wedged in between your teeth and under your fillings. Make some of these to bring back memories.
Intense, dark, fudgy, gooey, everything a brownie should be. You can vary the topping, using chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, toffee bits, nuts, M&Ms, whatever floats your boat. The recipe originally started out as something in the Magnolia Bakery cookbook, but grew into something much more personal. I now make these every week, keeping a stash in the freezer for emergency chocolate needs. Daphna, you asked for the recipe, here it is.
Everyone knows that hot water and a piece of lemon is good for you. This drink started out because I not only needed a hot drink in the morning, I needed a hot drink that would wake me up. For me, this drink packs more of a punch than any cup of coffee, and it's caffeine-free!
I was looking for the perfect coconut ice cream recipe and just couldn't find one, not even here on Zaar! I finally found something close to what I was looking for, and tweaked it to exactly how I wanted my coconut ice cream to turn out. Most of the time I sub non-dairy Rich Whip instead of the cream because we prefer our desserts to be non-dairy for religious reasons. I'm posting the recipe as I make it, feel free to use real cream.
I found this recipe while looking for things to do with my surplus of oranges this season. I've made this several times now and must tell you that this cake is divine! It looks like a lot of work, but really isn't. If you have a Microplane zester it's a dream to make!
One of my favorite food blogs is Brownie Points (http://www.browniepointsblog.com/). The latest entry is for Chewy Brownie Bites. The recipe has simply enchanted me, and the option of adding something different to every single brownie is mind-boggling. The ingredients come directly from the blog, but the directions are mine.
I found this recipe on a site that was promoting an Asian-flavored Thanksgiving. Even though we don't really celebrate the holiday per se, we adore sweet potatoes and we love Indian cuisine, so why limit ourselves? The original recipe called for yams, but I subbed in the sweet potatoes. Feel free to re-sub the yams. I also adapted the recipe a bit to tailor it more to our family's tastes.
Necessity is the mother of invention. I have a collection of blended whisky in the house that my husband refuses to drink, single malt snob that he is. He claimed the stuff was only good for paint thinner or rust remover. Not so. With a little help from Toolie who sent me some maple syrup from Canada, I invented a chicken dish that made everyone happy all around.
I first discovered smoked paprika on a trip to New York back in 2000. My cousin put it in some spaghetti sauce and I was hooked. Thanks to canarygirl and Sackville Girl here at Zaar I was able to get a supply in to my kitchen. This recipe takes the amazing flavors one step further. The stuff is amazing on potato latkes!
This recipe originally comes from Kosher by Design by Susie Fishbein. I've been making this challah every week for the last two months, and it makes a delicious, rich challah. I don't use the bread machine method, making the dough in my Kenwood mixer and giving the final knead by hand, then braiding the challah and baking it in the oven. I'm posting this as a bread machine recipe at the request of Miraklegirl. BTW, I don't use all the water called for in the recipe, I usually add a bit at a time until I'm happy with the consistency of the dough.
Tabbouleh is one of my favorite salads, we eat it all summer long. Some times I use couscous instead of the cracked wheat normally called for in tabbouleh, it makes for a lighter salad. Normally, tabbouleh has mint in it, but I'm not so crazy about the addition, so I've made it optional. This was created for RSC Summer 2005.
