Thank you for checking out my entry. This hardest part to figure out was, how to flavor the dish. I got dragged into doing a Mexican mac and cheese because I had chihuahua cheese leftover from nachos. Plus, there is also always chorizo hanging out in the fridge.

There is one special ingredient, that I don't have on hand, habanero peppers. It can be difficult to find an excuse to use these because they are damn hot. I can also say, from personal experience, they are the most dangerous pepper to get rubbed into your eye. Past the insane heat, there is a beautiful flavor. The noodles are perfectly cooked, so I drain them over the sink and then pat them down with a paper towel. Fresh out of the oven First slice. Vermont Mac and Cheese | Gourmet Gastronomer. Hello everyone! I'm Elle from Elle's New England Kitchen. My entry for Danny's Mac and Cheese cook-off is Vermont Mac and Cheese. It may not seem gourmet, especially with my choice of cheeses, but it's so creamy and satisfying. And most importantly, kids like it. There's no extra stuff like special ham, mushrooms, bacon (though that would be great crumbled over this) or lobster, but I wasn't going to make a whole pan of mac and cheese that only my husband and I would eat, lol.

And besides, a recipe doesn't have to be complicated and expensive to be amazingly good. This was a lot of fun--thanks, Danny, for putting this together!

While most bloggers are posting holiday goodies this time of the year, I still haven’t gotten into the spirit just yet. When most people are busy with their lists of tasks to do and gifts to buy, it has always been real simple in our family. My husband and I are past buying gifts for each other (only on birthdays), but we do give to our kids and other kids. For the rest of our family and friends, we agree on a secret santa game or some kind of gag christmas gift game with them. That way, it’s a mutual understanding that we’re not spending a whole lot of money on things people don’t need or even want. That said, please don’t think I’m La Scrooge.

Kidding aside, these green pancakes are super awesome. I went for the green-and-red christmas look for this dish…thought I’d get into the holiday spirit subtly. As a busy mom, I can attest that preparing these green pancakes is quite hassle-free. Prep time: 20 mins Cook time: 20 mins Total time: 40 mins Serves: 24 three-inch pancakes Share and Enjoy.

Loaded Potato And Buffalo Chicken Casserole Recipe - - 493413. One Skillet Pasta Puttanesca. Pasta Puttanesca – pasta tossed in a light tomato sauce laced with garlic, kalamata olives, capers, and parsley – is made in just one skillet! Think you can snag a man simply with the intoxicating scent of simmering tomatoes, olives & capers wafting from your kitchen window? A few “working” women in 20th century Italy certainly thought so! Dying to share my time-saving take on the Pasta Puttanesca recipe I enjoyed last weekend at the Barilla Interactive Lunch, I did a little research on the origins of the kind of salty, kind of spicy, kind of AMAZING dish to fill you in on.

Because I’m a nerd like that. What I found definitely surprised me! Apparently Pasta Puttanesca – pasta tossed in a light tomato sauce laced with garlic, kalamata olives, capers, and parsley – was invented by a few Italian “ladies of the night” in the 1960s, who would put steaming bowls of the pungent pasta in the windows of their bordello to lure men in. Make sure to get pitted kalamata olives, by the way. Voila! 18 Microwave Snacks You Can Cook In A Mug. Twisted Pepperoni Pizza. Pokelove -- colour co-ordinated two-layer mini cakes!

My recipe makes 12 tamale pie wedges for under 5 bucks! All packaged up in a cute little pie wedge! I made these with pork chirizo this time, but I think I will try a vegetarian variation, or do a playful spin on the chile rellanos and see how that goes!

Sliced baked potato. Baked potatoes are amazing. This variation has vertical slices made before baking, making the top cook to a crunchy, thick-cut potato chip consistency, with a creamy baked potato centre. It's the best of both worlds! This fun trick can be done on almost any tuber. I used white and Russet potatoes, and a sweet potato. Preheat oven to 425°F Using a sharp kitchen knife, carefully start making a series of vertical cuts width-wise through the potato, making sure not to cut all the way through - cuts should only be 3/4 of the way through the potato.

Grilled Ice Cream. In this instructable I am going to show you, how to grill ice cream. With its crisp crust and soft, ice cold inside, it will provide the perfect ending to your BBQ. When I had the idea to grill ice cream I did a little bit of research and found this recipe, which uses an egg and coconut crust to prevent the ice cream from melting.

While I like the idea it definitely requires a lot of practice and perfect timing, since solids aren't very good thermal insulators. If you take a closer look at insulation materials, you will notice, that most of the time they are made out of a foamy material and consist of lot of air. That's because gases have a lower thermal conductivity and therefore a higher insulating capability. So all I needed to do was to find a tasty, foamy material to apply around the ice cream to prevent it from melting. As some people pointed out in the comments, the idea to bake ice cream is not new and was invented back in 1876. Marshmellow peanutbutter bananabarbequeboats with honeydip. Microwave cake. This is absolutely, 100% the best microwave cake I have eaten in my life.* It takes 5 minutes to throw together and it tastes like sugar cookies and the texture is like REAL CAKE.

I was watching Masterchef AU last night and Matt Preston was making a microwave sponge cake that involved passionfruit pulp for the liquid in the recipe. I was instantly excited. It looked great, and I needed it! But there were problems: how much liquid is one passionfruit? So I stayed up and experimented and then - PROBLEMS SOLVED *Full disclosure: I am pretty much an expert in microwave sweets. P.S. Traditional Chicken Pot Pie. Perhaps there's no comfort food as comforting as a nice hot chicken pot pie. It's also a breeze to make. Chicken Pot Pie is composed of three recipes: the topping or crust (Pie Crust or Biscuits), Creamed Chicken, and additional vegetables. Since the topping can be anything fluffy or flaky (I like a basic rolled biscuit top), I won't cover this recipe here.

Let start with the creamed chicken. We'll need two cups chicken broth, 4 tablespoons of butter, 1/2 cup all purpose flour, 1-1/2 cup whole milk, 2 tablespoons sherry, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, lemon juice and white pepper. Cube (or shred) previously cooked chicken (1-1/2 whole chicken breasts [3 breast halves] work well) into bite size pieces and place on side. Melt butter in sauce pan or saucier over low heat. After one minute, remove from heat and add 2 cups chicken broth. Whisk until smooth. Add milk and whisk over medium heat until simmering. Turn off heat and mix in chicken & sherry until evenly distributed. Anghelika's Tsatsiki (Tzatziki) A few weeks ago, Tina and I went to a garden party hosted by our friends. A variety of authentic Greek foods were available for tasting and enjoyment as we had a good time chatting with friends, meeting new people, and watching children play.

In particular, we found that we kept going back to the blend of spicy garlic and cool cucumber in the tsatsiki. We asked Anghelika for the recipe, and she related the procedure to us as taught to her by her grandmother, Anghelika. The ingredient ratios are pretty flexible with this recipe. Start with 1 pint (470 mL) Greek-style yogurt, 2 cloves garlic, 1 medium cucumber (we'll actually only use half a cucumber), 1 tablespoon (15 mL) red wine vinegar, and 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil. Anghelika says her grandmother kept telling her to make sure to remember the vinegar (as if it was the secret to her tsatsiki recipe). The amount of garlic used in this recipe is up to the individual's taste. Peel the garlic cloves and cut off the woody ends.

That is all I have to say. Okay not really all I have to say because these are my dream dessert, I have such a soft spot for Italian and French pastries so, really I have plenty to say about these.

First of all, the cups for these are made from a cannoli dough (I made it a bit thicker than I would for a cannoli shell that would be wrapped around a flute and fried, simply so it could hold it’s shape a little better). If you have sweet Marsala wine on hand you can use that in place of the juice and vinegar (so just omit both of those and replace it with 1/2 cup Marsala wine). That first cannoli bite, always mine =).

Ingredients Cannoli cups: Cannoli Filling 12 oz whole milk Ricotta cheese, strained 8 oz Mascarpone cheese 1/2 cup powdered sugar** 1/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips powdered sugar, for dusting (optional) Optional toppings: Melted chocolate, chopped pistachios, sprinkles, toasted sweetened coconut Directions.
