Glühwein Recipe. Glühwein originates in Germany but is also very popular in Austria, which is not surprising as Austria is essentially like a holiday province of Germany if we have to be honest. Glühwein is served in the snow on ski slopes, in mountain huts and at European Christmas markets. Always drink Glühwein hot, and you’ll enjoy it best when the temperature around you is very low, for example around a campfire in the Kalahari or Karoo, while you’re freezing your backside off.

Magic Custard Cake Recipe | Magic Custard Pie. Update! A Chocolate version of this magic custard cake. Get the Chocolate Magic Custard Cake Recipe Here When I saw a magic custard cake recipe on Pinterest two weeks ago, I was floored. I mean, it left me in a state of delicious shock that something so simple could create an incredible piece of dessert. It looked so easy and like magic, it separated into three layers: a cake layer on top, a custard layer in the middle and another dense cake layer on the bottom. I was so obsessed with this cake but couldn’t get to making it because we were so busy with back to back shoots and a White Party (more on this later). For two weeks, my obsession grew for this cake and I stalked Mabel’s site everyday and with the help of Google Translation, was able to follow almost every word and praise from her readers. So, to make up for all the years of being void of this wonderful magic custard cake, I inhaled two slices in one sitting.

Be still my heart, I love this cake so much. Love, diane Ingredients: Myths About Wine. Rachel Kerswell Share on Facebook Share on Twitter When it comes to appreciating wine, there is as much myth as there is truth. Page 1 of 2 Common questions about wine service and etiquette — the right temperature for red and white, how long the wine needs to “breathe,” what exactly is a corked bottle, why we use descriptors like flowers, fruit and bizarre words such as "tar" and "forest floor" to talk about wine — are all typical concerns for guys who love wine. That’s because when it comes to appreciating wine, there is as much myth as there is truth. What's the deal with "aromas" in wine? Just because descriptors of fruits, flowers, spices, and vegetables are often used to differentiate wines does not mean that these actual products or their artificial flavor were ever added to the wine.

What's the right temperature for wine? Everyone will have a different opinion about the ideal temperature that wine should be kept and served at, especially when you’re talking about reds. Pairing Beer With Food | Men’s Journal. One-Pan Dark Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie.

The post after this one on “black rust” describes why you should heat the pan before applying oil for seasoning. This helps the seasoning to adhere and makes the pan pleasantly black. In a previous post, I illustrated how I cleaned and reseasoned an antique cast iron popover pan. This was my first attempt, and my seasoning technique was somewhat haphazard because I couldn’t find consistent, science-based advice. I used a combination of organic avocado oil and strained drippings from organic bacon. I wanted to understand the chemistry behind seasoning so I’d know how to fix this, but there is nothing that addresses this issue directly.

The pictures below are both of the same antique cast iron skillet. Start With the Right Oil (It’s Not What You Think) I’ve read dozens of Web pages on how to season cast iron, and there is no consensus in the advice. They are all wrong. The Recipe for Perfect Cast Iron Seasoning. Beer Info - Brews News Service plus Craft Beer and Homebrew Library. Everyday Chocolate Chip Cookies - Baker by Nature. For a while now I’ve been on the search for a perfect everyday chocolate chip cookie (also searching for the perfect ballet flats, but that hunt is still on!). Not so much a cookie that should be eaten everyday – although that would be sweet!

But more of an everyday chocolate chip cookie that appeals to a fearless baker as much as it does to a quite terrified one. A chocolate chip cookie that my picky pants toddler of a niece will devour as quickly as my bosses fancy friends. A cookie that doesn’t need days on days parked in the fridge trying to develop personality and charm.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Ya know, it’s just sometimes I want a cookie, and I want it NOW. I’m sure you know that feeling… right? I’ve been toying with my family recipe for a few weeks now, and finally – after many very good buuuuut not quite perfect trial batches – I found the one! They’re thick!
