You will need a cookie cutter in the shape of a peep for this one, or use a bunny/egg shaped cutter. You can use this recipe year round to make heart shaped peeps for Valentines' Day, tree shaped ones for Xmas, and pumpkin shaped ones for Halloween. The possibilities are endless. I have made this and it tastes great! Try dipping them in chocolate too!
I make this lasagna vegetarian by using "mock" ground beef crumbles. Use one package of frozen mock ground beef crumbles - made by Morningstar, Boca or Quorn. This can also be made for meat eaters, too, by using 12 oz very lean ground beef instead.
This risotto recipe is a masterpiece, a fresh musical overture for your palate - dining on this risotto is akin to hearing a symphony played by the world's greatest philharmonic, performed in a glorious baroque concert hall.
This is a copycat recipe I made to taste like the (expensive!) Creme Brulee dipping sauce sold at Le Gourmet Chef stores in the USA. This is great over ice cream or cheesecake. You can also eat it as a dip with animal crackers or grahams.
It may look daunting, but this is worth the effort! I've made this for some very picky eaters and I have yet to hear a complaint! If you cannot find Manchego cheese (it is a soft Spanish cheese) or Gruyere, you can use mozzarella and Swiss instead. I have done this before with good results.
This fudge is a British recipe - it is similar to soft caramels but includes rum-soaked raisins. YUM. It's not the type of fudge that you get at American amusement parks. It is different, but JUST as GOOD! Demerara sugar is also known as cane sugar. (the coarse brown stuff, sometimes sold as "Sugar in the Raw")
This gelato recipe is made the old fashioned way but you can use an ice cream freezer if you have one. Use green creme de menthe for the lovely green color. Allow up to 7 hours for freezing. You can add 2/3 cup chocolate chips at the freezing stage for mint chocolate chip gelato if desired.
This is a no-fail stir-fry sauce made with fruit juices. Add this to chicken, beef or vegetables in your wok when they are 75% cooked. You can also use this as a dip for spring rolls or other appetizers!
Decadent, vegetarian and relatively lowfat!!! What else could you ask for? I used a bag of frozen Quorn fillets. These are available in both the USA and UK. In the USA, they are called Quorn Naked Cutlets and in the UK, they are called Quorn Surprisingly Lowfat Fillets. Same tasty product, different names. This is a very impressive dish that's easy to create.
A peppermint biscotti recipe that is suited to the holidays but is a year round hit! You can make these using green food coloring and green peppermint candies instead of the red! And if peppermint is not your thing, try adding vanilla extract and 1/2 cup white chocolate chips…OR coconut extract and 1/2 cup flaked coconut….OR experiment with other flavored extracts/flavor combinations. This is a great biscotti recipe that is easily adaptable to suit anyones preferences.
Comfort food with an unusual twist for lovers of Turkish Delight. Looks beautiful garnished with fresh rose petals. Note regarding pudding rice: pudding rice is a type of rice sold in the United Kingdom. If you can't find it, use a short grain rice. It doesn't have to be soaked beforehand. Do not use Basmati rice, that's a form of long grain rice!
Orange Blossom Water, also known as orange flower water or orange water, is a perfumy distillation of bitter-orange blossoms. It is often used in Moroccan and Middle Eastern cuisine as a flavoring in baked goods, sweet and savory dishes and a variety of drinks. You can find it for sale in specialty groceries or make your own from orange and white wine (I have seen recipes posted on this site).
