Easy Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão de Queijo)

Easy Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pão de Queijo)
Print Our tour of Brazil continues. After posting the moqueca recipe, several of you asked if I had a recipe for Pão de Queijo, or Brazilian cheese bread, sort of like a chewy cheese puff made with tapioca flour. As a matter of fact, I do. My friend Bill gave me this recipe years ago, a favorite from his Brazilian wife Silvia. I’ve made it several times, each time with different cheeses. There are several ways to make Pão de Queijo. The beauty of this recipe is that you can make a big batch of batter and just store it in the refrigerator (for up to a week), pouring out just as many mini-muffins as you want to eat. The only weird ingredient is tapioca flour. The recipe as presented is fairly basic. Ingredients Special equipment recommended: One or two mini muffin tins. *It helps when baking with eggs to start with eggs at room temperature. Method Hide Photos 1 Preheat oven to 400°F. 2 Put all of the ingredients into a blender and pulse until smooth. Eat while warm or save to reheat later.

Mozzarella stuffed garlic roll recipe There is nothing better than eating a fresh garlic knot straight from the oven. Its crispy exterior glistening with a slathering of garlic and melted butter coupled with the rolls soft and chewy interior – it’s delicious. Typically, garlic knots have a sprinkling of parmesan cheese over the top of the rolls; however the Norfolk Cooking Examiner wanted to experiment using more cheese. In addition to cheese on top, she stuffed the garlic rolls full of mozzarella cheese. When the rolls are baked, the cheese inside becomes molten and occasionally leaks out forming a brown cheesy crust. elearningvt.org Welcome to the future of Middle School The Tarrant Institute partners with middle schools to improve the education of young adolescents in Vermont through technology-rich learning.

No Bake Chocolate Cake Recipe I don't know about you, but I didn't accomplish much today. I slept in, halfheartedly ran a few errands, accumulated flowers wherever I went, and spent a good amount of time arranging poppies & peonies into a hodgepodge of mason jars and vases. Flowers aside, I dedicated ten minutes making this chocolate cake. It's the ultimate lazy chocolate dessert. And while I think of it as a no bake chocolate cake, you wouldn't be far off if you called it a slice-able truffle.

Individual Blueberry Grunts Yeah, I’d never heard of a blueberry grunt, either. Until I became friends with Sandy. Every since we became friends, I couldn’t use the word “blueberry” without her saying “Mmmm, blueberry grunt…” eyes half-closed and smiling. I knew it was one of her favorite desserts, but I couldn’t bring myself to make something called a grunt.
