Thousand Dollar Bars: King Arthur Flour

1) FOR THE CRUST: Preheat your oven to 300°F. Spray a 9" x 13" pan lightly with cooking spray, or line with parchment, and set aside. 2) In a medium-sized bowl, beat together the butter, sugar and vanilla. Add the flour. At first the mixture may seem dry, but will come together as you continue to beat at medium speed. 3) Take the dough (it will be somewhat stiff) and press it evenly into the pan.

Sweet Pea's Kitchen - StumbleUpon Brownie Cookies This time of year I love to go on my annual Holiday baking spree and bake all kinds of cookies. From the new cookies that I find to my all time favorites. This year my baking spree is a bit different. You see one of my favorite parts of my annual baking spree is having my mom and my friend Beth right there alongside me. Baking, decorating and boxing up goodies for our neighbors and coworkers. Coconut Lime Noodle Soup Even though Southern California enjoys warmth and eternal sunshine most of the year, it’s beginning to get colder, especially in the mornings and nights. In colder days, I love preparing myself a piping hot noodle soup or rice dishes. The warmth from cooking in the kitchen and the noodles or rice never fail to warm me up. One of the recipes that I have meant to try is this coconut lime noodle soup. Its taste is very similar to tom kha gai or Thai chicken and coconut soup.

60 Second Chocolate Chip Cookie A la Mode I had so much fun developing this recipe. Talk about kinda dangerous though. This baby is baked in 60 seconds, no lie!! CHOCOLATE GUINNESS CAKE This cake is magnificent in its damp blackness. I can't say that you can absolutely taste the stout in it, but there is certainly a resonant, ferrous tang which I happen to love. The best way of describing it is to say that it's like gingerbread without the spices. There is enough sugar - a certain understatement here - to counter any potential bitterness of the Guinness, and although I've eaten versions of this made up like a chocolate sandwich cake, stuffed and slathered in a rich chocolate icing, I think that can take away from its dark majesty. Besides, I wanted to make a cream cheese frosting to echo the pale head that sits on top of a glass of stout.

Tootsie Roll fudge I mentioned in one of my recent posts that I have many favorite types of candy. Candy, candy, candy, oh how I love my candy. If you peek inside my mouth you will go, "Ahh, yes, you do, indeed!" I had a dentist growing up who (I believed) took pleasure in my constant need for fillings. I'm sure my memory of him is distorted, but I remember him grinning as he poked giant needles into my mouth.

Traditional Homemade Beef Stew Beef stew is one of those recipes I make a lot in the winter. I love all the vegetables, the heartiness and how it warms my body on a cold winter’s night. It brings back many childhood memories from when my mom made it. The funny thing is she now asks for my recipe. This recipe is very basic and pretty easy if you have never made it. It’s a traditional homemade beef stew and is also delicious over brown rice or mashed potatoes. Roasted Broccoli Recipe Kids don’t usually beg for broccoli, at least not the kids I know. So I was quite pleasantly surprised when my goddaughter Piper and her sisters Alden and Reilly not only raved about roasted broccoli, but insisted on making a batch for me during a recent visit. We sort of threw it together and the oven wasn’t working very well, so that particular incarnation of roasted broccoli wasn’t a raging success, but it was eaten with great enthusiasm nonetheless. Now home with a more reliable oven, I’ve recreated what I think the girls were trying to achieve. And if this were how broccoli was always served, I would beg for it too.

The Londoner: Salted Chocolate Truffles Recipes» Salted Chocolate Truffles Also fondly known as... Chocolate Salty Balls! I whipped these little love nuggets up for a dinner party last night. A table full of chocolate lovers eyed me suspiciously as I handed them round. Truffle Torte - Chocolate Recipes This recipe is quite simply the best chocolate dessert I have tasted in years – and quite the easiest to make. The recipe was generously given to me by Derek Fuller, formerly executive chef at the Athenaeum Hotel in Piccadilly, and has proved a winner with everyone who has tried it. It is very rich, though, so serve small portions!
