I've been looking for a white chocolate and raspberry cookie recipe for ages... This hits the sweet spot. These are soft and fudgy white brownies, dotted with red raspberries. They can be made up to 3 days ahead and stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
This recipe is from Easy Entertaining with Michael Chiarello on Food Network. You may make this ahead and reheat. Make sure to either whisk it or blend it in a blender to make it light and foamy before serving.
This is one of those make loads and eat for days recipes - easy and tasty. If you absolutely must, you can use canned tomatoes - but only if you can't get fresh tomatoes. I got the original recipe from Australian Women's Weekly Low Fat Meals in Minutes book.
Here's chocolate cake with a difference! This isn't a dare - jalapenos work absolutely beautifully with chocolate... And it's not as far fetched as you might think as Mayas used chili with cocoa thousands of years ago. (The amount of baking soda/powder has been changed to 2 based on the reviews.)
This is some gorgeous finger food, I got the recipe from some food magazine ages ago. Would go well as a apetizer to a Chinese or maybe Mexican dinner. I would suggest using small tortillas, but if you only have bigger ones you also need a bigger frying pan.
This is a fabulous sturdy picnic or BBQ food that's guaranteed to please the meat lovers. Traditional British dish, this would have been made in the morning, put on the bottom of the shooter's bag and eaten for lunch. The orignal recipe if from Two Fat Ladies.
This is originally a Swedish recipe, but it has been a Finnish favourite for a long time. It's unsure who Jansson was - some say it was a pastor and this dish was his only temptation - but suffice to say that it's quite delicious. Traditional recipe has julienned potatoes, but if this seems like too much work you can thinly slice them too.
If you love ginger, you'll love these. If you don't - you can just omit the ginger. The mixture of dried and fresh pears is just perfect - the fresh ones give it moisture, the dried ones intense pear flavour. This recipe is from Starbucks' Passion for Coffee book.
Here's a very traditional Finnish bread recipe. Typically this would be made into rolls, but no reason you couldn't make it into a loaf too. It has a great orange-yellow colour and a mild carrot flavour. It's from my trusty baking book Suuri Leivontakirja - Kotilieden parhaat leivonnaiset.
Creamy and delicious pasta that vegetarians and carnivores alike love. You can also divide the pasta into serving plates after step three, and instead of mixing the yolks etc. you can put them into little piles on the pasta - looks very pretty. Original recipe is from Conrad Gallagher's "In 3 easy Steps" cookbook.
This is a Sunday favourite - very tasty and easy, just put the whole meal into the oven and wait. Use whatever pieces of chicken you have available - bone on is good, I typically use legs. The recipe is my modification of a typical English Sunday roast.
