This recipe is from an old cookbook I found. Homemade wine or beer was legal as long as it contained no more than one-half per cent alcohol. From Every Woman's Cook Book by Mrs. Chas. F. Moritz (1926) p. 617. If you can find a bootlegger in your area, I think some rum or whiskey would really perk this up. This recipe makes a LOT! Please keep this in mind when preparing this party punch for your local Speakeasy :)
New York's Colony was no ordinary speakeasy. It was where Vanderbilts and Windsors went to dine in a civilized manner, and if that included a drink or two, then bartender Marco Hattem would provide one, no questions asked. http://www.prohibitionrepeal.com/history/cocktails.asp
Along with her husband, Douglas Fairbanks, the golden-haired Mary Pickford was at the pinnacle of the first generation of movie royalty. This 1920s Cuban concoction does her honor. http://www.prohibitionrepeal.com/history/cocktails.asp
You can add some soda to this if you need to, but this is no bathtub cocktail! During Prohibition you cannot waste your time drinking a lighter drink. Lillet is a blend of rigorously selected wines and fruit liqueurs, aged in oak vats for around 12 months. Lillet Blanc has a golden color with candied orange, honey, pine resin, lime and fresh mint aromas. This is the stuff in the James Bond cocktails like the Vesper.
My favorite kind of martini is one that I can eat more than drink! This is not one of those quicky drinks to throw together, but rather it is one you plan a bit for a party or dinner. I found this fabulous little drink online while researching the Greek food of Saganaki which is a fried cheese dish that can be served in various ways. I suggest that you paste the word Saganaki into the search above and check out some of the different styles the great Zaar chefs have here.
This recipe is from an old cookbook I found. This is a Prohibition recipe because it calls for wine, so they had to use homemade wine. Home made wine or beer was legal as long as it contained no more than one-half per cent alcohol. From Every Woman's Cook Book, by Mrs. Chas. F. Moritz (1926) p. 457-458. The amounts in the ingredients look like estimates, much like my Gamma's recipes. She never measured anything so when she gave me her recipes it was all guesses and also from me watching her.
This recipe hails from British Columbia, Canada. It is from the website if the B.C. Tree Fruits Limited company. "Who doesn't love baked apples and cinnamon? They are an irresistible combination especially when served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This rustic apple tart is simpler to make than a pie. You don't have to be neat and fussy with the crust, just simply fold it up over the apples however you please leaving the centre open. The chopped pecans toast while the tart is baking which gives them a buttery taste and help to make the tart look very rustic." http://www.bctree.com/recipes/archive/apple-rustic-tart.php
Sweet, Savory, and Spicy. Not too spicy though. This is good stuff. No seafood involved, although I bet it would be good with shrimp. I think this could use some more meat, but I'm a bit of a carnivore.
These parfaits are beautiful. You feast with your eyes before food ever touches your lips. The parfaits are made with alternating layers of sliced cooked plums, toasted walnuts, and mascarpone whipped cream. The plum preparation involves only a few minutes of cooking. A quick and stunning dish all together that will knock the socks of your guests.
I nice crockpot recipe for a great chicken dish. I use this Recipe #18553 recipe for what is called for. It's great to have made up ahead of time just for dishes like this. The use of chicken thighs instead of breasts makes the dish cheaper and more flavorful. Don't let the long ingredient list scare you away. It only looks like a fancy pants recipe. Once you throw it all together in the crockpot, the most work you have to do is in making the sauce at the end.
Just another way to make a beef tenderloin. This is a very simple recipe that anyone can make. Pan frying the steaks allows them to get done in hardly any time at all. This also makes a very good salad if you slice up the meat and add your favorite greens.
This recipe is from Curly's Pub located in Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers. I love beer cheese soup. This stuff is so creamy and so easy to make with easy to find ingredients. If you have an immersion blender you can blitz this right in the pan. Otherwise you can take it to your blender. Top with some unbuttered popcorn. GO PACK GO!!! :) UPDATED: I checked the recipe and it did call for 6 cans of beer, but it cannot be right. I called Curly's Pub at the stadium and got the correction from them at 2 cans of beer. The recipe they had given out was for the larger amounts made for the restaurant. 6 Cans of beer makes a bit more sense then. LOL.
I like these shakes with fresh roasted pumpkin, but you can use canned if you want. This is beyond easy to make and so very good to eat. I'll bet the shakes would even be good as a malt by adding malt powder. I use Recipe #184985 for the spice called for.
Recipe is by Giada De Laurentiis. I haven't seen the show it was on since we don't have cable tv anymore. Food TV is about the only thing I really miss. I did alter her recipe a bit to add an egg wash. I tried it without it and the flour just fell off in the oil.
I found this recipe when I was looking through a book on Girl Scout activity ideas. I have not tried it, but would like to when we have our next Troop SWAP. Did you know popcorn kernels can pop up to 3 feet in the air?
