April Fools' Crab Cakes: Fried Ice Cream Recipe : Food Network Kitchens.


I?m rich, I?m rich! Thousand Dollar Bars. Have you ever baked something that made you do the Daffy Duck?

I?m rich, I?m rich! Thousand Dollar Bars

You know, the cartoon scene where Daffy runs about yelling, “I’m rich, I’m rich, whoop, whoop, yippee, I’m rich!” He’s bouncing around on his head, feet, hands, and rump in a spastic outpouring of sheer joy. Yep, the Daffy Duck. Not everything we bake here in the kitchen gets us to do the Daffy Duck. Sometimes we do the swoon, the table grip (hold me Ralphie, I’ve died and gone to heaven). On a bad day, we do the wine taster (small taste and a spit) or the Emily Post (napkin over mouth, remove offending food, weak smile). But on a really really good day, we do the Happy Dance (personal taste rules here;mine includes foot stomping and mmm mmm noises); and the Daffy Duck. These Thousand Dollar Bars did just that for us here at KAF. These bars definitely remind people of Twix® bars, both in shape and taste, but OH, so much better when top-end caramel and chocolate is used. Preheat the oven to 300°F. Marshmallows 101. A step-by-step guide to getting your marshmallow mojo on.

A few months ago, I promised a marshmallow tutorial –WITH PHOTOS!

Marshmallows 101. A step-by-step guide to getting your marshmallow mojo on.

– to Laura and Karen, to prove that, YES! , they can make marshmallows at home. Big, soft, happy, puffy marshmallows that taste much better than any you’ll find at the grocery. Marshmallows that actually MELT in hot chocolate instead of bobbing around looking stupid. Are you ready for the challenge? Let’s go! There are many marshmallow recipes out there, but my favorite comes from the December 1998 issue of “Gourmet.” So, let’s get started! Adapted from Gourmet (December 1998)1 cup confectioner’s sugar (a.k.a. powdered sugar)3 1/2 envelopes (2 tablespoons plus 2 1/2 teaspoons) unflavored gelatin1/2 cup cold water2 cups granulated sugar1/2 cup light corn syrup1/2 cup hot water (You want it to be around 115°F, which takes about 15 seconds in the microwave. )1/4 teaspoon salt2 large egg whites (or meringue powder reconstituted according to the manufacturer’s directions) 2 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1. 2.

Cookies. Brownies. Dulce de Leche Brownies. Dulce de Leche Brownies At seven o’clock last night I had a chocolate craving.

Dulce de Leche Brownies

I approach the pantry and see a can of Dulce de Leche and instantly think caramel brownies. I have been wanting to try a new brownie so I did a quick Google search and found these babies. Being seven at night and the fact that I live in the middle of nowhere, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips because that’s what I had. If you have fancy- shmancy chocolate feel free to use it, I am sure it would elevate these already fantastic brownies!

If you aren’t familiar with Dulce de Leche it is basically caramel, like caramelized sweetened condensed milk (I can eat it straight out of the can). Dulce de Leche Brownies Adapted from The Sweet Life in Paris (Broadway Books) David Lebovitz Cooking Directions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 8-inch square baking dish with a sheet aluminum foil that covers the bottom up over the sides. Pour half of the batter into baking dish. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes. Enjoy! Miss.
