Just as the title says, this ranch dip is crazy easy to make. You just stick it in the processor and VIOLA! It's done. Just like that. It's nice and creamy with just enough spices. Use some of the chopped scallions as a garnish. I also sprinkle some sweet paprika over top.
This is a wonderful warm soup to warm the heart in these last cold days of winter. Being in Wisconsin, warm soup is always a welcome thing. This is a very simple amish soup, so it has very simple ingredients. It's perfect for a beginner cook or someone like me who just wants something easy.
I love GORP. I'm always looking for different ways to make it in different flavors and textures. It's good to try using what you really like in it. I like cranberries and sourdough pretzels, so I came up with this one. It's a nice sweet change of pace. I hope you enjoy it.
The cream cheese plus the asiago cheese in these biscuits are a great combination. The flavor is different from the usual Parmesan cheese biscuits. You could use other cheeses too. If you don't have the whole wheat flour, just use regular flour in it's place.
These are nice bars that are a little different from the regular crispy treats. I like the nutty flavor and all the different textures in them. You could very easily frost them with some melted chocolate chips too.
This romantic tart comes together in no time at all with the use of a premade tart shell. Feel free to make your own of course, but I stick with the premade ones on account of being pastry-challenged. As far as a rich and indulgent dessert, you cannot go wrong with warm chocolate and red wine! Perfect for valentines day, or any day that you just want to treat yourself and the ones you love.
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!
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.
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.
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
