Lamb Korma Lamb Korma is one of my husband’s favourite curries. It is a delicious, creamy and mild curry. When cooked well the lamb is so soft that it should melt in your mouth. I have been looking for years for the perfect recipe for lamb korma and, as it often happens, I found it by chance. I have had this cooking book by Madhur Jaffrey on Indian Cuisine for a long time and have tried many recipes from it… I have to say they are all great. There was a particular dish that caught my eye: Mughlai Chicken with almond and sultanas. Recipe adapted from Madhur Jaffrey’s “Mughlai Chicken with Almonds and Sultanas – Shahjahani Murghi” (in Madhur Jaffrey’s Indian Cooking). Grind 4 or 5 tablespoons of the slivered almonds into a thin powder. Put the oil in a wok and brown the cubed lamb on a high flame. In the same oil, sauté the cardamom, bay leaves, cloves and cinnamon for a few seconds. Add the chopped onions and fry them for about 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Bring to a simmer.

Brown Butter Fried Nutella Banana Croissant Sandwiches | Heather Christo I know. I know, I know. I’m sorry. No I’m not. I just needed these right after I saw snow in the forecast. I was sunny today, but it was deceptive sunny, like you throw the windows open to breathe in the warm breeze,and then you freeze your tushie off and run and slam them closed. I’m taking my girls ad hopping a flight early tomorrow morning and heading to LA to soak up some sun. Anyways, as if I am alone. These are very, very naughty, and you will enjoy them thoroughly. To make these, this is what you do: Spread the 2 tablespoons nutella over the bottom half of each croissant. Top the nutella with the bananas, and then the top of the croissant. In a skillet or heavy pan, melt the butter and gently cook over medium heat until browned. Add the croissants to the pan and cook until crispy on both sides and the nutella is melted. I gently pushed down on the sandwiches squishing them together. Enjoy hot or warm! Ingredients Instructions Preparation time: 5 minute(s) Cooking time: 5 minute(s)

World’s Smoothest Chocolate Fudge It’s official, holiday season is well underway. Decorations have taken over the stores, holiday party invitations have been received and here in New England it has been absolutely frigid. As ridiculous as I believe it is that the grocery store had Christmas themed candy on November 1st I am definitely guilty of early holiday enthusiasm including Christmas shopping and streaming my holiday music playlist well before Thanksgiving. Whether you are having trouble getting into the holiday spirit or you’ve been humming Christmas carols since August this fudge is sure to get you excited. This here is the world’s smoothest fudge. I am allowed to make this claim because I have tried every fudge ever made across the globe including the one your grandma made last year. One variation is to add chopped walnuts to the fudge. Worlds's Smoothest Chocolate Fudge Line an 8" x 8" pan with wax paper and set aside. Variation: Add ½ cup chopped walnuts right before pouring chocolate mixture into the pan.

Snowball Cookies Share on Pinterest So where did these cookies originally come from? They are so amazingly good I guess that several different countries want to label them as their own =). Share on Pinterest Ingredients 1 cup butter, softened 2/3 cup powdered sugar 1/4 tsp salt 2 tsp vanilla extract 3 Tbsp cornstarch 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 cup finely chopped Pecans (I just used Pecan cookie chips so I didn't have to do any chopping, just poured them in right from the bag). 1 1/2 - 2 cups powdered sugar, for coating Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Chef in Training | A great place to find easy, delicious and family friendly recipes. What could be better than a chocolate chip cookie? - The Tummy Train Let’s see… A year-long vacation in Europe? Winning the lottery? Having insanely fast metabolism? World peace? Okay, okay, so maybe there are a ton of things that may outshine even the shadow of the idea of cookies– unless perhaps you love them to the moon and back– but do you know another thing that’s even better than chocolate chip cookies? Nutella-stuffed chocolate chip cookies. You see where I’m going here? As we all know, Nutella goes well with pretty much any baked good or dessert in the universe, but whoever came up with the idea of using them as choco chip cookie innards was clearly a genius. Clearly he or she knew what she was doing. Being a huge fan of choco chip cookies I am already pretty happy with a batch of my favourite recipe so far, but I have also amassed a few recipes with mouth-watering twists added to the forever-favourite. I find that chocolate chip cookies always taste a tad better with a sprinkling of salt on top. Nutella-Stuffed Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
8 Mind-Blowing Apple Desserts | What's Cooking Besides—or maybe in partnership with—cinnamon, apple is my favorite fall flavor. I can’t say goodbye to autumn without sipping on a piping glass of cider and visiting a pick-your-own orchard. You can use your fall apple bounty (perhaps from said orchard outing) in countless ways besides placing in a brown bag lunch or on a teacher’s desk. Feel free to use any variety you enjoy—from Braeburn to Honeycrisp to Red Delicious—in these eight delicious desserts that are way more exciting than plain ol’ pie. Consider this your common core for the season. 1. Pineapple? 2. Admit it: You’ve hit the drive-through a time or two to grab a deep fried “apple pie”. 3. Caramel apples are a fall staple, but this sheet cake transforms the flavors into something special. 4. An apple pie I don’t have to share? 5. This bakery-quality cheesecake offers all the same flavors in a classier (and easier to eat) format compared to traditional caramel apples. 6. 7. Rhubarb doesn’t just play nice with strawberries. 8.
Homemade Frosted Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tarts. - Sallys Baking Addiction If you like pop-tarts, you will love my Homemade Frosted Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tarts. 100% from scratch. The frosting “sets” after an hour making them identical to the originals. Hi! (I’m currently wiping pop-tart crumbs off my keyboard.) I made a homemade version of my all-time favorite high school snack food. My high school vending machines never had anything interesting (mixed nuts, stale granola bars) but it did supply pop-tarts. Frosted Brown Sugar Cinnamon – the toaster pastry putting all other toaster pastries to shame. When I was 15, I would eat two brown sugar cinnamon pop-tarts at a time in about 20 seconds, twice a day – not caring for one second about all the processed junk going into my body. It’s been way too long since I tasted one of life’s greatest pleasures, so I set out to make my own. Can ya tell I’m a little excited?! I’m going to be honest. I highly suggest reading each step and viewing each photo before beginning. (just keep scrolling, just keep scrolling…) Pastry1
