How to Make Marshmallow Fondant. This time I decided to make it with those mini fruit flavored marshmallows. I had to sort them by colour first. I figured they would add a little bit of flavor to the fondant so I wouldn't have to add much flavoring oil. I use gel colours to dye my fondant but regular food colouring will work too. You won't be able to get really dark colours without making your fondant sticky, but for lighter colours you can just even it out with more icing sugar. I also had lemon oil and coconut flavoring on hand.. oh la la the value brand (which still works fine). Step One: Take a couple of handfuls of marshmallows and put them in a microwave safe bowl. I like to make smaller batches because its easier to add the colour to the melted marshmallow than it is to work the colour into the fondant later.

Step Two: Stick the marshmallows in the microwave for ten seconds at a time until the are puffed up and easily stir into a goo with a wooden spoon. Step Three: Step Four: Fondant with the icing sugar kneaded in. Baked Eggs with Bacon and Spinach. Do y’all remember the scene in Runaway Bride (that’s an Oscar contender if I’ve ever seen one…) where Julia Roberts realizes that she doesn’t know how she likes her eggs? You know, because she’s always turning herself into the girl that the guy she’s marrying wants to be with? Yeah. That’s not me. I know how I like my eggs, although I will say that it depends on the day. If it’s a scrambled kind of day then I want them scrambled with NO MILK, a tab of butter, and salt and pepper.

Cinnamon Toast&Rolls - Circle B Kitchen - Circle B Kitchen - StumbleUpon. The USDA released its new food pyramid the other day (which is actually a plate now instead of a pyramid), and I am sorely disappointed to report that cinnamon rolls did not appear anywhere on that plate. I think by now most of us know what should be on our dinner plate in terms of healthy, well-rounded nutrient-laden meals, but it is my considered opinion that our breakfast plate should include cinnamon rolls now and then. And not just any cinnamon roll, mind you, but how ‘bout a homemade cinnamon roll hybrid that is a cross between a cinnamon roll and cinnamon toast, is super easy to make and gosh darn delicious.

Roasting peppers is one of those intimidating techniques that becomes amazingly simple once you try it a few times. And it’s not only easy, but kind of fun as well. I learned how to roast a sweet pepper from that culinary masterpiece, “The World According to Garp” by John Irving. No really – I did! The main character roasts a pepper to make a vinaigrette, and I was so intrigued that I put the book down and tried it immediately. My first few attempts were less than completely impressive, but I am going to help you avoid my early mistakes. There are other ways of doing it, but 30 years later, this is still my favorite. Use metal tongs to turn the pepper as the skin on each side begins to char a bit.

Just keep watching and turning, and go back over to get all surfaces nicely charred. Don’t forget the top and bottom. You can do one on each burner, though you have to pay a bit closer attention. If a side won’t sit level by itself, hold it with the tongs until that part is done. See? Tofu Noodles (Shirataki) with Peppers and Shrimp. 166 (2 servings) Tofu noodles, OMG! They are absolutely delightful! I've read complaints on the Internet about them smelling "fishy" and having an odd texture.
