A simple cookie for when you are in the mood for chocolate and coconut but want something fresher than a candy bar that may have been sitting on the store shelves for three months, these are made with one of Californias favorite nuts, the Almond.
We do love our BBQ here in the south as much as the South westerners love the spicy sauce. While many areas claim Pulled meat should be only Beef and others may say Chicken or even lamb, I will always go for the rich and spicy taste of Pulled Pork
I was surprised when I didn't see this on here. It is beyond simple and perfect for any sort of occasion where you need small snacks, I.E. super bowl parties, graduations etc. Just serve from the crock pot by putting a cup full of toothpicks nearby. Also, you can substitute sliced smoked sausages quite easily for this. And it can be done over low heat in a large covered pot if you don't have a crockpot.
Wonderful on a cold rainy day like I have here today. I have made this about 5 times since finding the recipe last year & always love it. I changed it from the original a little in the matter of spices & adding some flavoring. This is different than most other pumpkin cranberry breads in that it uses canned sauce so it is good year round if you don't have a frozen stash of cranberries. I haven't yet made it with the glaze. It is great without it spread with butter or Pumpkin Butter. You can sub 1 1/2 tblsp pumpkin pie spice for the spices but personally I like to be able to add a little more or less of whatever I may or may not be in the mood for.
We ate a lot of Pork when I was growing up in Chicago. The midwest, with it's many generations of Europeans, loves the richness & homey appeal of dishes like this. It is awesome. If you like the combo of sauerkraut and pork you will love this. When it's done it is fall off the bone tender and very flavorful. I made a few changes from the original but not much. It was fine almost as it was. Can be doubled easily if your crock pot is big enough. Makes a lot of sauce that is great over noodles.
I got this from a recipe group I'm in. Haven't made it yet & wanted to save it here. It was getting raves in the group. Also, a lot of people were saying that they substituted dried sweetened cranberries for the cherries. Where it calls for milk chocolate, I plan to sub semi-sweet because it sounds as if it may be too sweet with white & milk chocolate IMHO
This is a recipe I found in a Taste of Thai Cookbooklet I got in the mail from the Taste of Thai company...it is a good twist on regular southern corn cakes and I love them. Don't let the long ingredient list turn you away. This is quickly put together and inexpensive, and the dipping sauce is of course optional.
I just made this up today...so far it seems to be either a love it or hate it proposition. Out of 8 of us, 5 think its good, 3 say ehhh, its ok..but its kind of tangy, very refreshing and not too sweet, though easy to sweeten up if you wanted it sweeter. Cooking time is steeping time
