If you're a chocoholic in need of a rich, chocolately fix, then this recipe is for you! These are a hybrid between the richness of a brownie and the texture of a dense, chewy cookie. Enjoy with a tall glass of cold milk or favorite brew of coffee.
We received an ice cream maker attachment for our KitchenAid mixer last Christmas. We also had a spare can of coconut milk left over from a curry recipe. After a few ice cream batches, I began wondering how to use the coconut milk in an ice cream recipe. This is the result. My favorite thing about homemade ice cream is the delicious taste from only a handful of ingredients, so this one is a simple, Philadelphia-style ice cream (no eggs).
It has a rich coconut flavor that isn't over-powering. The banana and (optional) rum complement the tropical theme.
My mother's award-winning chili recipe. Yes, this recipe actually won her a new refrigerator. While I can't guarantee this chili will win you fame and fortune, it should earn you complements and gratitude. This recipe makes a large pot of chili that keeps well in the refrigerator and reheats in the microwave.
This is an oft-requested dish in my family. It comes by way of my mother's boss, hence the recipe title. You can make this in a single session, or assemble the dish and refrigerate until later when you're ready to bake and serve... for example, assemble it at home, then take it to a get-together to bake and serve hot. Well worth the effort, and you'll be the hit of the party.
From a friend who recently traveled to Switzerland and returned with this recipe. She says this recipe is more authentic (i.e., Bavarian) and less "mall food court" than other recipes (all are good, but it's a matter of preference). I don't know whether to believe her - I haven't been to Switzerland to sample their goods, and I won't make this recipe until after I have posted it here. I like surprises.
