Cranberries, Almonds, in Blondies - Oh My! Be sure to toast the almonds before you put them in for a nice nutty flavor. The ones you scatter on top make this dessert over the top beautiful. Trust the process, this batter is very thick. I use my Kitchen-aid mixer to do the heavy work for me.
I really like risotto. The trouble is that I am the only one in the house that likes it, until now. Everything is better when it is sweet. also, you cannot live near Door County without having a few cherry recipes on here. I used Recipe #229437 #229437 by the lovely and talented Chef #58104 for the cherries called for in this recipe. Yes, I still add the vanilla because my DH loves vanilla. You can skip this step if you use Rita's cherry, since it already is flavored.
Ok, bear with me. Beer stew? I assure you that if you have ever enjoyed a beer with a nice cut of beef, then you will like this. If not, try it anyways. I go with a light beer, just because that is what we usually have on hand. You can use any kind of beer you like. This is great because it cooks up in one pan, from the stove to your oven! A nice stew to chase away the cold in the house and warm your belly.
I love tea. I love apples. This only makes sense for them to come together in this great tea. This makes enough to serve to others, but I usually end up saving it all for myself. You can drink it hot, just skip the step about the ice. I prefer this particular tea over ice though. I sometimes add a bit of honey as well. Note that you need 1/2 cup of mint leaves, plus 4 sprigs of mint for garnish.
There are many crisp recipes on the site, but I didn't find one quite like this one. There are no cans of cherry pie filling here. Yes, you too can make a cherry crisp from scratch, using real cherries! You could use this filling for many other things like ice cream topping, or Toast-tites on the campfire! Yummy!
Very moist and cheesy burgers! Perfect for your cookout or anytime. These were featured on the local news for tailgating recipes for the Packers at Lambeau Field. I usually use kaiser rolls for the buns, as these are nice and juicy. If they are in season, be sure to throw some sliced Vidalia onions on top.
This is almost like dinner and a dessert in one. It's not quite that sweet, but I love the flavor of the honey and pecans. Sorta like a praline, but not quite. The chicken comes out moist and tender. It's so easy to make too. I like to throw all the seasonings into a ziploc bag, then put the chicken in and shake until coated. Then you can just throw the bag out.
This is another one of those recipes that only looks like a fancy pants dinner. This cannot be easier. The tastes combine to make one great steak. Who could resist tenderloin with bacon AND cheese? Vegetarians, please close your eyes. I am not exactly sure on the grilling times, please let me know how long it took.
This recipes is directly from #56 Nick Barnett of the Green Bay Packers football team. He was on the cooking segment of the local morning news making this really great drink. Nick Barnett owns a club in Green Bay called Five Six, so he knows his drinks.
This is a drink that's as pretty as it is a sweet indulgence. In fact, we like to call it dessert in a martini glass. It tastes a bit like those Chocolate Orange Cream candy eggs, but a whole lot better and more grown up. Wanna really make this pretty? Drizzle some chocolate syrup lightly across the finished drink in a zig zag pattern. Oh yummy!
Adapted from "Peterson's Holiday Helper," by Valerie Peterson (Clarkson Potter, 2008). This is a blend of all the favorite holiday flavors, not really a true sangria. You can use a sparkling cider or grape juice, or even a champagne if you'd like to. Cherries are an excellent addition to this drink as well. This is best left to sit for overnight to let the flavors blend well.
Duck confit - seasoned duck leg quarters slowly roasted in duck fat - is fully cooked and can be found in the meat section of specialty grocers. Look for egg roll wrappers in the international freezer section or near the tofu products. Pomegranate concentrate can be found in many markets and Middle Eastern specialty stores. If plating the Crispy Duck Rolls with a green salad, double the dipping sauce. If there is extra sauce, you can make vinaigrette - whisk in about half the volume of fruity extra virgin olive oil, then season to taste.
This recipe of sorts smells indulgent and it really feels wonderful. For cleansing and revitalizing the feet, while soothing aches and pains. Cedarwood is calming and has fungicidal properties, and also to relieve muscular aches and pains. Tea Tree oil has fungicidal and strong antiseptic properties.
