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. Obviously studentbeans.com is big on beans. Now, it says on some tins to not let the beans boil because it impairs the flavour. 9. An omelette is quick and easy and can be tailored specifically to your tastes. 8. Yes yes yes, you can buy cans or cartons of soup (watch out for high salt content). 7. We know the microwave is right there, but seriously, potatoes are rubbish when you cook them in that fast-food machine. 6. 5. 4. Et voila!

Crash Hot Potatoes | The Pioneer Woman Cooks Man, do I love Australia. First, my oldest daughter was conceived there on our honeymoon…and while we’re on the subject, have I ever shared with you that we almost named her “Sydney” as a nod to her point of origin? In the end, I chickened out, though—I thought that might be a little corny, and truth be told, I think she was actually conceived in Brisbane. But I’ll stop there. This is a family-friendly website. Anyway, I just love Australia. They’re so simple, it’s terrifying. For now, though, let’s take a chill pill and make Crash Hot Potatoes! The Cast of Characters: New Potatoes (or other small, round potato), Olive Oil, Kosher Salt, Black Pepper, and whatever herb you like. Begin by bringing a pot of salted water to a boil. Add in as many potatoes as you wish to make, and cook them until they’re fork-tender. Oh! Next, generously drizzle olive oil on a sheet pan. This will mean the difference between the potatoes sticking and not sticking, so don’t be shy here. Or something. That’s it!

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! Tom Yum soup is currently under study for its ability to fight off cold and flu viruses, and perhaps even cancer (see link below for more information). So try my delicious version of Tom Yum Goong, which is basically Tom Yum soup but with a little coconut milk added ("Tom Khaa"). The coconut milk gives it a little more thickness and flavor while still keeping it healthy. It's an easy recipe, and quick to cook up, but tastes like Thai restaurant quality. Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 25 minutes Yield: SERVES 2-3 Ingredients: Preparation: For a simple step-by-step version of this recipe, see: Easy Tom Yum Soup Recipe. About Tom Yum Soup and Coconut Milk: Depending on which Thai chef is cooking, evaporated milk may be added instead of coconut milk (this is often the case in Thailand). For more on the immune-boosting benefits of Tom Yum soup, see: Thai Soup Under Study.

Better Than Takeout Orange Chicken Yesterday as I stood in the kitchen trying to figure out what to make for dinner I wondered to myself, how do those people do it on those shows where they are given random ingredients and are suppose come up with something genius. I think I stood there for a solid 20 minutes looking in the cupboards and staring into the freezer hoping that I would be struck by some ingenious idea. Then I saw the oranges, and it hit me “O-raang Shh-ikun”….that is orange chicken if you can’t understand the accent. I love orange chicken, and I almost always order # 14 Orange Chicken when we order Chinese take out and I wondered to myself if I could make it better at home. This recipe most definitely delivered! The sauce is sweet, tangy, there is no lack in orange flavor, and the red pepper flakes give it just a touch of heat. Combine corn starch, salt, and pepper. As you finish each batch, drain cooked chicken in a paper towel lined plate. Better Than Takeout Orange Chicken Ingredients Chicken 2 eggs, beaten

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.
