Braided Spaghetti Bread & The official blog of Americas favorite frozen dough

Braided Spaghetti Bread & The official blog of Americas favorite frozen dough
We are carb lovers at our house, so when I saw the Braided Spaghetti Bread recipe in the Rhodes Home Baked Family Favorites with frozen dough cookbook I knew we would love it. This is a really simple recipe; it just takes a little planning for thawing the dough. It will take 2-3 hours for the bread loaf to thaw to room temperature or 1-2 hours for the rolls to thaw to room temperature. You will need: 1 Loaf Rhodes Bread Dough or 12 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature6 oz spaghetti, cooked 1 cup thick spaghetti sauce 8 oz mozzarella cheese, cut into 1/2 –inch cubes 1 egg white Parmesan cheese Parsley flakes Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray (or use parchment paper). Roll loaf or combined dinner rolls into a 12x16-inch rectangle. Cook spaghetti according to package instructions. Remove wrap from dough. Make cuts 1 ½-inches apart on long sides of dough to within ½-inch of filling. Begin braid by folding top and bottom strips toward filling. This was fantastic!

Top ten easiest meals for students (or anyone else for that matter) to cook - Finances - Student Life Five quick and easy dessert recipes for students Unfortunately, as delicious as these two dietary staples undoubtedly are, they are neither nutritious nor cheap. And with money tighter than ever before for the Great British Student, it might not be such a bad idea for the old overdraft if you started diversifying your desgustational repertoire - by which I mean 'eat something else'. Studentbeans.com, the specialist student discount and money-saving site, has a bright idea for a solution: cook. No, seriously. Here are 10 great ideas to get you started. 10.

Limoncello Recipe Limoncello While searching for a good recipe for Limoncello, I found a lot of conflicting information. Some recipes use vodka, others use grain alcohol (without specifying the potency, which varies) and others even used rum! The alcohol-to-water-to-sugar ratios also varied widely, and it made me wonder if people had typos in the recipes, or were just posting a recipe they had never even tasted! So I started with the premise that grain alcohol will extract the most lemon oil and flavor from lemon zest. Then I adjusted the water and sugar levels until I had a recipe where I liked the potency and the sweetness balances the tartness of the lemon. Limoncello 3 pounds lemons, preferably organic. 16 oz. grain alcohol, 190 proof (I use Everclear) Wash the lemons thoroughly in warm water, and rinse well. On the 3rd day: 4 cups sugar 4 cups (=32 oz.) water 1/2 cup (=4 oz.) lemon juice Clemencello My latest discovery!

Tom Yum Soup - Tom Yum Soup Recipe Soup to boost your immune system? That's right!

Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie for One & Healthy Food For Living By Lauren Zembron, on July 20th, 2012 I know, I know… it seems as though I’ve been posting sweet recipe after sweet recipe (with a little something cheesy thrown in); but you see, after what seemed like a long time during which sweets were unappealing during my first trimester, (what can I say, pregnancy does some strange things to your body!), they’re apparently back with a vengeance on my appetite’s menu. Sooooo if you’re a sweet freak like me, all I can say about my recent recipe post pattern is: you’re welcome. And if you’re not? Now let’s get to this deep-dish cookie. Jenny from Picky Palate recently posted a recipe for a microwavable chocolate chip cookie made in a ramekin that looked so unbelievably delicious I had to make my own (slightly healthier) version. I cut out half of the sugar, subbed in whole wheat pastry flour, and used grain-sweetened chocolate chips (which have less sugar than semi-sweet chips). Now I’m under no delusion that even my version is healthy.

Thai Coconut Milk Soup - Tom Kha Gai ~ New York Food Journal Dashi and miso soup are staple Japanese soups. Phở is one of the traditional Vietnamese soups. Cardamom infused lentil soup makes for a classic Indian soup. This blog's survey of Southeast Asian soups would be incomplete without Tom Kha Gai: Thai coconut milk soup. The basic recipe, combining coconut milk, fish sauce, chicken broth, and lemongrass is great, but I think it is even better with a few additions. As a classic soup, there are many varieties to the broth; particular disagreement appears to be over the ratio of coconut milk to chicken both. Serve this by itself or with summer rolls or Shanghai noodles. 2. 3.

Crispy Cheese Burger Sliders | CouponClippingCook Crispy Cheese Burger Sliders Have you ever made cheeseburgers when you lifted them off the grill or out of a pan….and there was this piece of cooked cheese that was kind of hanging off the side of the burger. Then when no one was looking you broke that piece off and ate it. And that piece of cooked cheese was so good. Here’s a recipe that has a big piece of that cooked cheese as part of the burger itself! This idea came from one of my fave Food Network shows, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives with Guy Fieri. Guy was visiting a restaurant called the “Squeeze Inn” in Sacramento, CA where they made this delicious cheeseburger with cooked cheese hanging over the entire burger that was served in a regular size bun. Here’s a video clip from the Squeeze Inn that shows how they make this burger at the restaurant using ice and steam. In the recipe below I made a slider version of this cheeseburger with an onion poppy seed dinner roll. Let’s check out the ingredients: Here’s how to make it. For the Burger: Yum.

Idea by Janice Kamide Images Source BuzzFeed How to Make Bagels: A Users Manual at Epicurious.com While making bagels may seem challenging to home cooks, it's actually not as complicated as you might think. But before we get into the specific recipe and bagel-making process, let's explore a few urban myths: Do You Need a Special Type of Flour to Make Bagels? No. Bagel shops often use a type of high-gluten flour to achieve that distinctively chewy texture and to stand up to the rigors of mass production, but you can opt for more readily available unbleached bread flour and still achieve fantastic results. Plus, even though bread flour contains slightly less protein—12.5 percent compared with 14 percent for high-gluten flour—it actually tastes better. Is Barley Malt Syrup Essential to That Distinctive Bagel Taste? Yes and no. Barley malt syrup is available at most supermarkets, but if you can't find it, use brown rice syrup, honey, or agave. Can You Make Good Bagels in One Day? While not a difficult or labor-intensive process, bagel making is a two-day affair.
