Apple Rose Tarts October 2, 2012 Say that you are having a party. Say, a large party, one with lots of guests. The kinds of guests you want to impress, but are svelte health-conscious types, so you don’t want to go overboard with dessert and serve a seven-layer chocolate cake or something. This. This is what you should serve. Not only are these tarts impressively beautiful, they’re something of a Cinderella dessert: despite all their frills and puffs, at their hearts they’ve got the honest flavor of down-home apple pie, all cinnamon and sugar and sweet homey reminiscence. Ingredients 1/2 recipe pie dough/pâte brisée1 cup apple butter 1 teaspoon cinnamon 6-8 medium rosy-skinned gala apples juice of 1/2 lemon 1/2 cup sugar pinch salt powdered sugar for dusting Directions Heat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

Mel's Kitchen Cafe | Homemade Ciabatta Bread {And The Best Garlic Bread On Earth} What is ciabatta bread and why on earth should you make your own? Excellent questions… First of all, ciabatta is an Italian bread that is long and flat-ish, somewhat in the shape of a slipper (which is what the word “ciabatta” literally translates to). It is slightly crispy on the outside with a deliciously tender and airy crumb. I can personally eat an entire loaf myself, that’s how much I love the almighty ciabatta. Now why should you make it yourself? Panini Garlic Bread Ok, that was officially three. So make it already! Note: this dough requires a “biga” or a starter to be made the night before so plan ahead! Ingredients Overnight starter: 1 1/2 cups (6 ¼ ounces) unbleached or regular all-purpose flour 1 cup cool water 1/16 teaspoon instant yeast Dough: all of the starter (from above) 1 teaspoon instant yeast 1 1/2 cups (6 ¼ ounces) unbleached or regular all-purpose flour 1 1/4 teaspoons salt 1 teaspoon sugar 1 tablespoon nonfat dry milk 1/4 cup lukewarm water 2 tablespoons olive oil

Chocolate Stout Cake « Cooking Blog - Find the best recipes, cooking and food tips at Our Kitchen. 10th September 2012By KatePhotography by Adam There has been quite a buzz around beer in the office lately, but being seven months pregnant, I decided that it was only fair that I should be allowed to get in on the action even if it meant putting the beer in a cake! As it turns out, the beer in the cake trick resulted in a deliciously rich, bittersweet treat, of which I must confess I had a second slice. Serves 12 -- 250g unsalted butter 2 1/2 cups flour ¼ cup dutch press cocoa (plus extra for the pan) 3/4 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 3/4 cup stout beer 350g dark chocolate, chopped 3 eggs 1 cup sugar 1 cup molasses sugar 1/2 cup sour cream 1/2 cup cream -- 1.

New York-Style Bagels | New York-Style Bagels Recipe | The Sophisticated Gourmet This is the story of an amazing New York-Style Bagel Recipe. But it doesn’t just start there. It began with food blogger’s block (writer’s block, but for food bloggers)… The most frustrating thing for any food blogger. Many of us will not admit that we sometimes get it, but I find no problem with admitting that I occasionally get food blogger’s block. Why? Well, I am not *that* normal. Okay… Exaggerating a bit… But I seriously do bake a bit too much… This past weekend, I decided that I was going to use all of the baking energy that I built up over the past couple of weeks to create some edible masterpieces to share with you all. The first edible masterpiece (I love how I call bagels edible masterpieces…) that I decided to share (out of the billion things that I baked) is an awesome bagel recipe that I adapted from a cookbook that I recently “borrowed” from my aunt, Ultimate Bread. At this point, you’re saying- “WHAT?! Why? 10.

These Exist!? Zipzicles Are Ziploc Bags Designed For Popsicles We’re getting a bit nostalgic here today. What did you call the ice pops that came in a sealed plastic tube and that you generally bought in a box of at least 50? At Brit HQ some of us knew them as Otter Pops, others as Flav-or-Ice, and still others as freeze pops. Whatever you called them, we can all agree that they were delicious, especially when eaten poolside or at a backyard BBQ. That’s why we were excited when we came across Zipzicles, a new product that makes it easy to make your own ice pops. What could be better than getting a bit buzzed off of an ice pop? The first step for all the recipes is to make a batch of simple syrup, which like its name implies, is actually quite simple. You can make as much simple syrup as you like, just use a one to one ratio. You can’t go wrong with a classic strawberry margarita. Strawberry Margarita ZipziclesIngredients:1 cup sugar 1 cup water 1 1/2 cups strawberries, sliced juice of 1 lime 6 tablespoons tequila 1 tablespoon triple sec 1.

Homemade Bread: Cheap, Delicious, Healthy, and Easier Than You Think Over the last year, I’ve gradually moved more and more towards making my own food at home. There are several reasons for this: it tastes better, it reduces preservative intake, it’s more nutritious, and it’s often substantially cheaper than what you find in the store. It does take time, but once you get used to it, most food preparation doesn’t take much more time than going to the store, buying it, taking it home, popping it out of the package, and following the directions. Breadmaking is a prime example of this phenomenon. Homemade bread is substantially tastier than store-purchased bread, isn’t laden with preservatives, is very inexpensive to make, and doesn’t take all that much time, either. The Problems With Industrial Bread Most people in the United States today view the bread purchased at the supermarket as what bread should be. There are two big explanations for this. The other bothersome part of industrial breadmaking is the appearance of a healthy dose of preservatives.
