    It couldn't be easier to make and everybody thinks my version, with fresh brewed espresso, is better. The recipe is sized to refill one bottle. If making several, just put the right amount of espresso and sugar in each bottle and fill to the brim with milk. Try variations: A friend loves these with decaf espresso and vanilla soy milk sweetened with splenda. If you don't have an espresso machine, get one. The money saved making this drink alone would quickly pay for an inexpensive but quality machine from Briel or other manufacters. (I found a good used machine on eBay.) Avoid the machines that force water throught the coffee with steam; a machine with a pump will make much better espresso.

    Recipe #93649

    We Googled Gatorade after realizing how much the cost of this product adds up. This is the result of much trial and error. The envelopes with non Kool-Aid drink mixes (like Wylers) are usually more like Gatorade. Kool-Aid seems to have its own distinct flavor. I often double the recipe to make a gallon jug. Fructose and citric acid might require going to a good health food store or brewing supply co. but yield a product more like the original. It is very good with the substitutions mentioned if you like the lemon flavor.

    Recipe #93652

    Ok, it's not perfect but it's so close that no one noticed a difference in my tiramisu. Mascarpone costs about four times as much as these ingredients at our local markets. Give it a try if you face the same costs and I doubt you'll have any regrets. The yield is almost 2 lbs. and of course a half recipe is right at a pound. Prep time doesn't include the hour or so needed for ingredients to reach room temp.

    Recipe #72555

    This recipe was created to frost an ice cream cake but it would be wonderful for a refrigerated cake too. Most frostings are designed for room temperature so I adapted a truffle recipe because truffles freeze well. I think this frosting is heavenly, light and similar to a mousse. FYI, I brush my chilled cakes with a simple syrup (equal parts of espresso and sugar heated together) to insure the frosting adheres well. Many thanks to Lisa Simon who posted espresso truffles #16357, the recipe adapted to make this frosting.

    Recipe #104287

    The distinct flavor of leeks makes a wonderful light soup. Even though I have Scotch ancestors, I've never made this using prunes. Its so good in its simple form, I just hate to tinker. (From an old Doubleday Cookbook.)

    Recipe #69793

    We call this "Ham and Peppers" but there's onion and pineapple too. This is a great quick meal and an excellent use for leftover ham. The recipe was originally from a Doubleday Cookbook but has evolved during the past 12 years to suit our taste--we like the ham and onions slightly browned and the peppers crisp/tender. Serve over steamed rice and add soy sauce to taste. Note that this dish is best just after it's thickened and it doesn't reheat that well, but there's rarely any leftovers.

    Recipe #69792

    The Gazebo Restaurant on Maui is known for their macadamia nut pancakes and I've tried to copy them to the delight of my friends here on the mainland. I think they're just as good without the nuts and that the real secret is serving them with coconut syrup and a dollop of coconut flavored whipped cream. The pancakes are based on Kittencal's Recipe #82094 with some alterations. If you like cream in your coffee, be sure to try a cup with coconut whipped cream on top!

    Recipe #353047

    This is the easiest cake imaginable! Try it if you're looking for a low-fat cake or if (like me) you're wondering when the Cream of Wheat will ever get used up. The texture is like a muffin merged with pudding. It's different than most cakes but well worth trying. I thought of Najwa's Basbousa #12957 when I saw this in the Arab section of RecipeLand. Both are similar but this version has a thicker syrup and calls for Cream of Wheat and yogurt rather than semolina and buttermilk. The almonds on top are a nice touch. I like both recipes and personally think its best to bake them a day ahead so the syrup can thoroughly permeate the cake. It's great with coffee or tea--if you're concerned about fat in your diet, try this and you might not miss those high fat coffee cakes!

    Recipe #72469

    I've enjoyed zucchini cakes, cobbler, and breads that I've found here and hope that you'll enjoy these moist, cake like brownies--they disappear fast here! I love them with the glaze but they're very good without it too. My garden is in zucchini overload and I thought this recipe would be helpful to other zucchini lovers. The brownies were inspired by Monica Resinger's Black-Bottom Zucchini Bars and the glaze is based on a recipe from the Cake Doctor's book.

    Recipe #133383

    These have a delightful flavor and are a satisfying alternative to fries that are fried. Note that you'll need to soak and scrub the pan but it's well worth the effort. Use a non-stick pan if you have one available.

    Recipe #66707

    A unique, good tasting, somewhat exotic dessert. Called "Gelo di Melone" if you use all the ingredients, a summer treat in Sicily. In making this the first time, I imagined soaking sliced sponge layers to make a true watermelon cake; or using this instead of raspberry jam in a trifle. This recipe is paraphrased (with apologies) from Nick Malgieri's book: Great Italian Desserts.

    Recipe #67676

    Finally I found how to make a favorite treat from the Middle Eastern store. Nick Malgieri calls this "Cubbbaita di Giugiulena" or Sicilian Sesame Brittle in his book, Great Italian Deserts. He says this recipe is true to its Arab origins.

    Recipe #68019

    This creamy pudding seems much richer than it actually is. I prefer making it with low-fat (2%) or whole milk, but it is very good using fat free. Substituting unsweetened coconut milk for a cup of the milk makes an interesting variation. Note that smaller pearls will cook faster than larger ones so the cooking times will vary. Responding to Mianbao, I found that small pearls require more milk, say an extra cup during cooking. The mixture should be similar to oatmeal cooking. Keys to success are maintaining a very low heat, stirring often and cooking until the pearls are completely translucent--no white spots in the center! (Prep time assumes you already soaked the pearls and NOTE: This recipe doesn't work with "minute" tapioca).

    Recipe #66363

    If you love coconut cream pie, you've got to try this! This recipe is for a small, countertop freezer but it doubles easily if you're using a larger 1/2 gallon freezer. I recommend using fat-free cream cheese since the thickeners will make the ice cream less runny. You can substitute half and half for all or part of the milk to make this even more yummy! Cooking time = 10 minutes toasting coconut and 45 minutes freezing.

    Recipe #90237

    While lower in fat than most Lemon Pudding Cakes, the buttermilk gives this dessert a rich, full bodied flavor. Try it both warm and chilled. The cake is light as a feather while warm and the pudding is runny, more like a sauce. When chilled, the cake has a firmer texture and the pudding thickens and permeates the cake. Its good served with whipped cream; or a raspberry sauce.

    Recipe #69980

    This is a variation on my favorite Pizza Dough recipe from an old Doubleday Cookbook. You'll find the dough more elastic and the crust more chewy than regular pizza. The key ingredient is Vital Wheat Gluten that shows up in many low carb foods. Be sure "Vital" is on the label since it has more protein and fewer carbs than other types of gluten. This recipe is more suitable for people on Weight Watchers or the Zone Diet than on Atkins. The 50/50 mixture of bread flour and gluten provides roughly half its calories from protein while the other half are from carbs. Vital Wheat Gluten is often available as a bulk item in health food stores. For more information, enter it as a keyword on the USDA food composition site:

    Recipe #104079

    I love the honey flavor of these biscotti as much the almond aroma while they bake. Based on "Biscotti Napoletani" from Nick Malgieri's book, Great Italian Desserts, the three flavoring ingredients are just honey-almond-cinnamon. They're wonderful in this pure form but I mention the optional ingredients since they please my American tastebuds. Since there's no butter or egg, these biscotti are exceptionally light--imagine a crisp, honey almond toast. They're different but definitely worth trying.

    Recipe #68711

    If you like seeing some "red" in your meat, this recipe is for you! Since the goal is to sear the natural juices inside the roast, you'll get very little in the pan. Gravy lovers might want a can of beef broth or packaged mix. You'll love the aroma as it cooks and how the caramelized onion flavors the juice!

    Recipe #67238

    This recipe is from Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream and Dessert Book and it got many ooo's and ahhh's at a dinner recently. It is sized for a countertop freezer but you can double or triple the recipe for a larger ice cream freezer. The "cooking" time is an estimate for chilling and a "soft" freeze. It will take longer if you want it hardened. I use only 1 cup of sugar and still find this sorbet plenty sweet. Also I prefer using a blender or food processer to process the raspberries, sugar, lemon juice and water. I refrigerate the result and add the wine and corn syrup just before freezing. You can't taste the wine but I think the tannins add to the complexity of the flavor which is truly excellent in my book.
