From The Lady and Sons Savannah Country Cookbook. This is definitely not a traditional Red Velvet cake, but it's very moist and sweet and it was highly complimented when I made it for my family. Some people sub a container of marshmallow creme for the mini marshmallows. I have seen versions of this recipe with 9" rounds and 8" rounds--I used 8". UPDATE: Other sources on the web, including Food Network and Paula Deen's site, list 2 Tablespoons of cocoa rather than the 1 tsp listed in the cookbook. I also have a penciled note on my copy saying to add 1/2 cup applesauce (for moistness).
From the back of a box of Hodgson Mill wheat bran. I like this recipe because you can make the batter in advance and store in the fridge in an airtight container for 2 to 4 weeks. That way I can bake a few fresh muffins whenever I want without having to break out the mixer.
From Ruta Kahate's 5 Spices 50 Dishes. This curry has an interesting sweet/sour/spicy flavor. I strongly advise that you prepare this in a well-ventilated area and open a lot of windows--the aroma from the cooking spices will definitely clear out your sinuses (or, at least, they cleared mine!). I used diced chicken breast and served over basmati rice.
From Nancie McDermott's Real Thai: The Best of Thailand's Regional Cooking.
If you want to save time you can grind the spices and combine the rest using a food processor instead of a mortar. I have been using this recipe lately and with the exception of the fresh lemongrass (you can substitute 4 tsp dried) all of the ingredients are easy to find. I sometimes also substitute a little lime juice for the peel and green onions for the shallot. You can also roast batches of seeds ahead of time--just don't grind them until you're ready to use them.
Southern Living, March 2006. I was looking for something a little more exciting than traditional banana pudding and this did the trick. Very rummy, so I wouldn't go past 3T. I used 3 bananas. Eat it fast, the first day is the best. You can also serve cold by allowing it to cool 15 minutes, then chilling 4 hours.
