Want To Learn How to Make Gordon Ramsay's Favourite Dessert?-Hot Chocolate Fondant
Posted by Grace Massa Langlois on Friday, 16th July 2010 Gordon Ramsay and his thoughts on Hot Chocolate Fondant – “Whenever I’m asked for my favourite recipe, this is the one. It has a divine melting texture and the liquid centre is sublime.” This recipe happens to be one of my favourites as well. I’ve tried countless recipes for these molten lava cakes but non have compared to this one. When I’ve made these cakes in the past the most difficult part of the recipe was slipping the cakes out of the ramekins without them falling part. You can prepare the dessert ahead of time, chill it in the fridge, and then pop in the oven for 12 minutes just before serving and enjoy (that’s the best part)! Are you planning a romantic dinner for 2? (from Gordon Ramsay Make It Easy) Serves 4 Comments (62) Leave a Reply Related:  cakes and piesCookery

Better-Than-Crack-Brownies I’m sorry for doing this to you. I really am. But see, last Friday while I was on a 10-hour road trip heading for vacation, I received this recipe from a reader named Liz. Liz, I love you. That’s all I have to say. I was tortured by this recipe for a full 8 days before I could make it. So it was the first thing I made when I returned home. These are an absolute sin. I really don’t have any words, other than you must try them. They may also change your waistline too. But that’s okay. It’s all in the name of chocolate. Better-Than-Crack Brownies 1 batch brownies (boxed mix or oooey gooey brownies) 1/2 cup salted peanuts (if don’t have salted, add sea salt) 1 cup chopped Reese’s peanut butter cups 1 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips 1 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter 1/2 tablespoon butter 1 1/2 cups Rice Krispies Cereal Mix brownies according to directions, and bake for 20-25 minutes in a 9 x 13 baking dish. While they are finishing baking, melt chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter. Mr.

Big Red Kitchen: Little Peach Cakes More Food Crafts:Chocolate Covered Strawberry Mallow CandiesRainbow Cupcakes with Rainbow FrostingCandy Cake The title of this post sounds like a term of endearment someone may bestow on a cute little child, but no, the photo is a shot of my Little Peach Cakes made this morning for when my niece and nephew come over to play.

Chicken Pot Pie IX Recipe Black Bean Chili Some recipes you tweak each time you make them. This is not one of those. It’s perfect as it stands. I even whipped this up and entered it into a chili cookoff at work without tasting it first – that’s how reliable it is. (It won third place out of eleven; I didn’t tell the judges that it was vegan.) Of course you can tweak it how you like to make it perfect for your house. This goes out to My Legume Love Affair, created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook and hosted this month by Diana of A Little Bit of Spain in Iowa. Black Bean Chili 2 tablespoons oil 1 large onion, diced 2 poblano peppers, diced 6-8 cloves of garlic, minced 2 15-ounce cans black beans 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes ½ package soy chorizo (6 ounces) 1-1/2 tablespoons cumin 1-1/2 tablespoons chili powder 1-1/2 teaspoons oregano 1-1/2 teaspoons cocoa powder 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon ½ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon black pepper Smoked Tabasco Sauce to taste (Start with a teaspoon; I use a couple of tablespoons.) Serves 4-5

Easy, Delicious (and yes, Elegant!) Pots de Creme | The Pioneer Woman Cooks... Okay, first of all, here’s how you do NOT pronounce Pots de Creme: “Pawts deh Creem.” Here’s how you DO pronounce Pots de Creme: “Po de Krehm”, or, if you want to get really technical, “Po de k(insert phlegmy, back-of-the-throat crackly French sound)ehm”. Okay, now that we have that life-altering issue under control, let’s talk about this delightful dessert! Folks, I can’t begin to express to you how monumentally easy this Pot de Creme is to prepare, and how truly delicious it is. Short of sticking a spoon in a pint of Haagen Dazs and throwing it at my dinner guests, this is definitely the easiest dessert in my arsenal. Hypothetically speaking, of course. Let’s make Pots de Creme! The Cast of Characters: Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips, Eggs, Vanilla (OR Cognac, Grand Marner, etc.), and Strong Hot Coffee. See this? Not really on the rage part. Begin by throwing in 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips. Crack in four eggs… Right on top of the chocolate chips. Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla. OR! I know!

bakerella.com Apple Pies I know, I’ve made a few pies lately. But see how these are different? Look at how adorable these are! I mean, come on. Could you resist? I sure couldn’t. We ate them before I had a chance to think about pictures. Oops. This is why I had leftover dough for that impromptu dinner. Although this recipe is a little time consuming, it’s no harder than making any sort of real pie. It still involves slicing fruit. Rolling out crust and making it look pretty. Mixing fruit and sugar and cornstarch. And taking bites with your eyes closed so you can focus solely on each flavor. Please give these a try. Apple Pies Inspired by Pinterest 1 prepared pie dough, rolled out and sliced into strips 6-8 large apples (really any kind of apple will do) 1/3 cup sugar, plus more for sprinkling onto the crust 1/3 cup brown sugar 1 tsp cinnamon 1/4 or 1/2 tsp cardamom, if desired 1 tsp cornstarch Juice of a lemon or lime, mixed with 1 cup of water 1 tbsp melted butter Preheat the oven to 375F.

Homemade versions of Girl Scout cookies I admit it: We’re Thin Mint addicts in our house. I try to limit the number of boxes I buy each season because they aren’t particularly healthy or earth-friendly. But, I have many friends with daughters in the Girl Scouts, and the Thin Mints are just so yummy. My 7-year-old didn’t even realize there was any other flavor of Girl Scout cookies than Thin Mints. One reason that Girl Scout cookies hold such a spell over many people is that they are only available for a limited time. Whether you’re looking to create a healthier version of the cookies that you like so much or you want a way to get your fix during the off-season, try your hand at these recipes for Girl Scout-like cookies. Tagalongs – Baking Bites has a recipe for these peanut butter patty Girl Scout cookies.
