Two-ingredient maple soufflé

Two-ingredient maple soufflé
I know, I know. You read that post title and thought to yourself, Katy is clearly messing with us this morning. And then you thought, Seriously, Katy? You got us all excited for what is obviously some kind of very cruel joke, because who on this planet can craft a soufflé out of two ingredients? Well, I can. And I thought I’d share the recipe with you, but if you’re going to be like that, I’ve changed my mind. But… I suppose if you really want it that much. It sounds weird to pair eggs with maple syrup, but eggs in soufflés are essentially an invisible ingredient — they give structure and density to something that otherwise tastes like flavored air (in fact, if your soufflés taste like egg, you’re probably overcooking them). You may notice that in this recipe, I don’t ask you to butter and sugar the ramekins. Please. two ingredient maple soufflé recipe INGREDIENTS 2 eggs 1/3 cup maple syrup (I use Grade A Dark Amber) DIRECTIONS Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. Serves 4.

Cheesecake in a Jar Recipe I’m fairly certain that I’ve discussed my lack of love for the great outdoors, so it’s safe to say you’ll never hear me writing about long hikes in the woods or camping anywhere other than on a deck chair at a five star resort (Hey, I can dream, right?). Not to say that I am not fond of the fresh air and scenery, I just like to keep a screen between me and the bugs. Needless to say, I don’t last long at picnics in the park or anywhere outdoors for that matter. Usually an annoying fly or buzzing bee will send me into a fit within 20 minutes and I’ll sit there contemplating my escape route or the idea of eating in my air conditioned vehicle. Problem is, I am a big pan of picnic food.

Kiss Pies Only 5 days before Christmas! Woohoo, is everyone ready? What a great time of year. 2 Ingredient Flourless Nutella Cake I am so so so excited to share this recipe with you today that I created. Yes, it’s only 2 ingredients. And I mean really two ingredients. Not one of those recipes that say two or three ingredients and then one of the ingredients is something like “pre-made dough” or “cake mix.” (Not that there is anything wrong with those recipes.) All you need is Nutella and eggs.

new york cheesecake New Yorkers have a reputation for being pushy and over-the-top — these are things you learn when you leave the city for a weekend, and a ticketing agent at the airport in Tulsa, for example, informs you that you’re so much more polite than she thought a New Yorker would be. We apparently like things bolder and taller and shinier and more intense and while I’m not sure if this really applies to your average straphanger commuting from walk-up to cubicle and back again everyday, I am absolutely certain that it applies to our cheesecakes. (No, the other kind, silly.) How is a New York Cheesecake unlike any other cheesecake? To begin, it’s very very tall. Confession No. 51 — Why sweat the big things? Worry about the small (really important) stuff. I’ve been accused a time (or six) of being a complainer. While I’m not ready to accept that, I do admit to griping about certain things in life that are worthy of being bitched about. Along with my high cholesterol and blood pressure, my tendency to sweat the small things will probably shave some years from my life. Some of my biggest day-to-day frustrations involve mustard. When I squeeze the bottle and get a couple drams of yellow-colored water — instead of the thick yellow contents — it almost ruins my day. Brown mustard is even worse.

How to Make Wine Jelly I don’t know if the American Psychiatric Association has a list of personality traits for first-born children, but if they do, I’m sure “entitled” would be near the top. My “what’s yours is mine” instinct has led me to appropriate a Miss Piggy doll from my sister, bracelets from my mom, a toothbrush from a college roommate (not my proudest moment), and, on a daily basis, anything on my husband’s plate or in his glass. My commandeering knows no bounds. Case in point: The canning set that my father-in-law received for his birthday last year now resides in my kitchen closet. Truth be told, he gave it to me after I spent countless hours in my in-laws’ kitchen pickling cucumbers and zucchini from their garden, sealing sour cherries in liqueur, and infusing batches of strawberry jam with lavender. Spring and summer are the prime seasons for canners, but I’ve figured out how to get my fix during the off-months with recipes like wine jelly.

strawberry summer cake It is not summer yet. In fact, it’s been raining for more than a week, and another week — the one in which I presume we’ll be introduced to our new mosquito overlords — is promised. In fact, it was so cold that I met a friend for lunch today and had to wear both a light wool sweater and a jacket. It’s almost like summer looked at New York City and said “pbbbblt!” But I know it’s coming. Advent Day 8: Eggnog Muffins I created this recipe after seeing Ice Cream Bread on thekitchn.com. I figured if one could make that bread using ice cream, then why not use eggnog in place of ice cream- it’s eggs, sugar, and milk too. These little muffins are a breeze to make and a serendipitous discovery as well. Have you ever had a French Cruller? Red Wine Poached Pears - Ang Sarap (A Tagalog word for "It's Delicious") Red Wine Poached Pears Red Wine Poached Pears is a dessert made out of pears poached in sweet red wine, sugar and spices syrup, it originated from a French dessert called Poire belle Hélène which is a nearly similar dessert where pears are poached in sugar syrup served with vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup and crystallized violets. The dish was created during the 1860’s by Auguste Escoffier and was named after the operetta La belle Hélène by Jacques Offenbach. A really simple yet an elegant desert, it is sweet but not overpowering, it is fruity with hints of red wine and its really great after a very tasty meal as it give you that clean fresh flavours that lasts.

Soda Can Cupcakes These crazy simple Soda Can Cupcakes involve only a can of soda and a box of cake mix! It’s magic! I am all about a shortcut and these cupcakes are the epitome of shortcuts!! Spaghetti All’Ubriaco (Drunken Spaghetti) 2 quarts inexpensive (but tasty and drinkable) red wine, plus ½ cup for the pan (2 bottles)1 lb. thick spaghetti or linguine2 fat cloves of garlic, or four small cloves2 tablespoons butter, salted or unsalted1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oilPeperoncino, or dried red pepper flakes to taste, optional (I used 1 teaspoon)1/4 cup chopped, flat-leaf Italian parsley (I used 2 Tablespoons dried)Pecorino Romano or Parmigiano-Reggiano (I shaved it over the top) Procedure1. Add the water and red wine to a 6-quart stock pot and place it over medium-high heat. Season the liquid generously with kosher salt and cover the pot to bring it to a boil.

Death By Oreo Cupcakes They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried. A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor.

Tuna Stuffed Peppers Macnifique! Sunday was my cheat day. Marking the end of my 4 week primal challenge. I could go on and tell you in detail about how my day went, about the foods I ate and how it all made me feel, but I wouldn’t want to bore you. So, in short: I confirmed that pasta is pretty insignificant in my life, as is bread. I felt no urge to buy anything ‘forbidden’ whilst on a trip to the supermarket. Only fresh fruit, veg, meat and fish really appealed to me, and the one thing I had been craving for 3 of the 4 weeks of my challenge, ice cream, really managed to hit the spot!
