Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread How do you make bread even better? You stuff it with pepperoni and cheese. Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. This bread takes a little bit of time to prepare, but in about half an hour I had filled my bundt pan with little dough balls, each with a piece of pepperoni and cheese stuffed within it. My new definition of bliss: warm dough with a cheesy center and a bite of pepperoni. Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Breadfrom Confections of a Foodie BrideIngredients: -2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced -4 tbsp butter -2 lbs pizza dough (I used 2 balls of Trader Joe's fresh dough) -6 oz. mozzarella cheese, cut into small cubes (about 48 pieces) -pepperoni (about 48 slices) -2-3 cups marinara sauce for serving Directions: 1. 3. 4.

KFC Coleslaw recipe With the 4th of July upon us, I thought I would share with you a fabulous recipe I discovered. My husband loves the coleslaw from Kentucky Fried Chicken. In fact, he’s a terrible mayo-phobe, so it took many, many years just to get him to try other coleslaws. He had even told me one day that he wished I could find a recipe for KFC’s coleslaw so we could have it at home more often. Then I saw it. This recipe is now available for download on Kindle!

All Grown Up: Chicken Fingers for Adults - Food on Shine By David Sax for SAVEUR magazine. This article was first published in Saveur in Issue #141. Though upscale versions of childhood comfort foods-peanut butter and jelly, corn dogs, s'mores-have colonized restaurant menus, there's one glaring exception. Chicken fingers, the ubiquitous kids' entrée, get little respect.

Related: In Praise of Soft-Cooked Vegetables » Still, as popular as chicken fingers are, the consensus among adult eaters was that the food was child's play and would never grow up. But the generation gap is murkier than it appears.

Kaffe ökar energiförbrukning och förbättrar hälsan För ett tag sedan fick jag en förfrågan av en kille som kallar sig Cerberus om att skriva en text om kaffe. Jag är själv en storkonsument av kaffe, jag är både intresserad av det och älskar att dricka det. Jag känner igen Cerberus från forumet Kolozzeum och han är en trevlig medlem så självklart ska jag försöka uppfylla hans önskan om en kaffetext. Texten kommer i vanlig ordning inte kunna inkludera varje aspekt. Jag kommer inte behandla några träningsrelaterade effekter, inga miljödiskussioner och jag kommer inte gå in på varenda hälsoaspekt som någonsin diskuterats gällande kaffekonsumtion. I den här texten ämnar jag att begränsa mig till kaffekonsumtionen i förhållande till de metabola sjukdomarna primärt samt kaffets effekt på energiförbrukning. Historia och bakgrundsinfo Här gör jag det lätt för mig. Kaffekonsumtion och sjukdomsprevention När man studerat sambandet mellan kaffekonsumtion och olika sjukdomar finner forskare ofta en skyddande effekt av att dricka kaffe. Slutord /Nicklas

Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes Recipe As I mentioned on Friday, I have been doing some experimentation with the beer and chocolate combination. The Guinness-chocolate ice cream that I made totally kicked butt, so I couldn’t wait to see how I liked beer and chocolate in my cake. The answer? I like it, a whole heck of a lot. This was my first time doing Guinness-chocolate cakes, and I was totally optimistic that I would love it, and I was definitely right. These cupcakes consist of a Guinness-chocolate cake base, which has a wonderful depth of flavor and is also supremely moist. While you can’t really taste the beer in the cupcakes (it serves as more of a flavor enhancer for the chocolate), you can definitely taste the alcohol in the filling and the frosting. I think I need to start converting more drinks into baked goods, this was too much fun (and way delicious!). Two year ago: Sour Cream Coffee CakeThree years ago: Pot Roast in the Crock Pot

Steak au Poivre - The Showstopper I have a comment on this comment, then I have a comment for the OP. To Amy: Removing to foil is simply a way to keep the steaks warm whilst resting (FOR 5 MINUTES AT LEAST… ALWAYYYS!). When the OP says remove to foil, he/she doesn’t mean to wrap them tightly. They mean to place them in a plate, and form a loose ‘covering’ of foil. This will simply trap some of the heat and allow it to remain warm, without trapping too much moisture. To the OP and to anyone else who decides to try ‘flambe’: It is important to note: When you add cognac or any other high proof liquour to a hot pan, then ignite, you are not burning the alcohol itself, per se. - Never light alcohol while there is an open flame/heat source. - Notice how in the OP, they remove the pan from the stove and then light. - Keep a heavy lidded pan nearby, just in case things Do go awry (if you follow the first 2 tips, they won’t) - Always have at least an ABC rated fire extinguisher within arm’s reach

Pumpkin and Blue Cheese Soup Last week Kate Nash was in Boston and I had some friends over for dinner before the show. Feeling inspired by one of her songs, I decided to make pumpkin soup. A friend of mine told me about a pumpkin and blue cheese soup which he had recently on vacation in the Dominican Republic. He said that it was the best soup he ever had, so naturally I had to try it! The lyrics to her song don't actually have anything to do with pumpkin soup. Bacon first, then take it out. Use the bacon fat for the onions and carrots. Pumpkin simmering Pureeing the soup from a few steps back so I don't get it on my shirt! This is a very blue and orange post. Bit more cheese and some of the bacon floated on top. Chop and cook 3 strips of bacon until crispy. Oh yea, and Kate Nash Rocked!

Crockpot BBQ Beer Chicken What is up with beer and me lately? I can’t get enough of the stuff. If I’m telling the truth, I really enjoy cooking with beer much more than I like drinking it. Best flavor ever. Basically, I love replacing water with alcohol. And now… a peek into what a mess my kitchen appliances really are. You don’t even want to see my stand mixer. Look at that bun. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that this is the best chicken I have ever made in the crockpot. People… I live with a man who seriously eats chicken at least five days a week for lunch and dinner. So, I’m convinced it’s a combination of the perfect marriage between beer, spices (I freakishly love onion powder and smoked paprika together… give it a whirl) and sauce (Bone Suckin‘ is the best) that makes this so amazing. Or is that just me? Crockpot BBQ Beer Chicken serves about 8-10 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 6 large) 1 tablespoon onion powder 1 tablespoon smoked paprika 1 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon salt Notes: 1.
