What a way to end a meal . . . sinfully delicious! If you don't have a double-boiler use a heat proof bowl that will fit a sauce pan. The bottom of the insert or bowl should not touch the boiling water. The first couple crepes may be unusable but don't worry you, should have enough batter to make at least 14 six inch crepes. Top with either Caramel-Rum or Chocolate-Kahlua sauce. UPDATE 03/11/2010: Please note that this recipe was developed as an entry in RSC #15. I have since updated the recipe to incoporate some of the recommendations of the reviewers.
This is Cook's Illustrated method of cooking a filet mignon. If you're cooking for someone who insists on well-done steaks, use a thinner cut of meat. I recently cut small steaks from a petite fillet and cooked in this manner and they were fantastic . . . so cute too!
The difference between California Rolls and Maki-zushi is the way it's rolled. The California Roll has the sushi rice on the outside with the nori on the inside. A Maki roll has the sushi rice on the inside with the nori on the outside. For directions on making the sushi rice see Recipe #383636. This is a combination of recipes found on Food Network. Special equipment need is 2 bamboo sushi rolling mat plus a bowl of water with ice.
Sushi is meant to be finger food, quick and tasty. It is preferable to eat sushi with ones hands rather than with chopsticks, but both ways are acceptable in America.
Eat the whole sushi roll at once. It is not appropriate to eat part of a piece of sushi and place the other piece back on a plate. Once you have picked something up you should eat all of it.
Do not dip the California rolls into the Soy sauce as the rice portion of the sushi will become too moist and can cause sushi to fall apart. Maki rolls can be dipped into the Soy because the seaweed (Nori) is on the ouside and will hold it together. Simply dip into the soy sauce before eating.
These moist muffins bake up great in muffin top tins or mini muffins too. Maskes 12 muffins, 10 muffin tops or 24-30 mini muffins. Use very ripe bananas. Recipe was found on the internet -- Diana's Desserts, however I have made a few modifications.
Hard to believe this delicious soup is made with canned tomatoes! Besure to use whole tomatoes packed in juice, not puree; you'll need some of the juice for the soup. DO NOT SKIP the roasting of the tomatoes; a little more effort, but worth it! Recipe comes from Cook's Illustrated with a slight modification.
Great for breakfast, snack or a brown-bag lunch. Adjust baking time accordingly if making regular muffins. Original recipe comes from William and Sonoma, however I've made a couple additions. UPDATE: The recipe has been changed to incorporate suggestions from reviwers. UPDATE #2: Also changed the instructions to reflect the previous changes.
So easy to make and healthy too! Recipe came from the Rennet package, which is available at health food store, and some supermarkets. Please read all the insturctions before beginning. I've found it easier to use a crockpot, however I've included the directions for preparing on the stovetop. Note however, you will need to assemble a double-boiler of sorts. It's for this reason that I found the crockpot worked best.
The best part of the muffin is the top! The kids will love them! Started out as a William and Sonoma recipe however I made modifications. The only special equipment needed is a muffin-top pan, or they could be baked in english muffin rings.
