Best baked potato ever: Preheat oven to 425 degrees Wash potato thoroughly, and dry with paper towels Poke 4-5 holes in potato skin with a fork Rub potato with light olive oil Place potato directly on oven rack (DO NOT, whatever you do, wrap it in foil) Bake for 1 hour (I said it was good, not that it was fast) Remove with tongs, split with fork, add your favorite toppings, and serve.

Five Best Recipe Organization Tools Trust me, I was just as surprised when tallying the votes for the top five. I thought more recipe organization apps would be in the running, but - as mentioned several times above - they just weren't nominated. Managed to get a few into the honorable mentions though. My fault also, I keep running across the finalists for these things instead of the original nomination article. Devil’s Food Cake for Design Sponge : Cafe Fernando – Food Blog - biscoff - devil's food cake - Cakes October 30th, 2010 | Category: Cakes, Chocolate I am a big fan of Design Sponge‘s “In The Kitchen With” column. Every Friday, they feature talented cooks, bakers, photographers and food stylists from all around the world and publish a recipe for the rest of us to drool over. So when Kristina asked me if I’d like to contribute a recipe and photos for the column, I was simply floored. Here’s what I came up with: Devil’s Food Cake with Whipped Biscoff Ganache and Chocolate Shards. Moist and fluffy cake layers with a velvety ganache in the middle.

Oreo Cheesecake Cookies If you know me, you know that I absolutely, positively love cheesecake. Cheesecake anything. Cheesecake everything. The Web’s Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches If we had to choose one simple comfort food to eat for the rest of our lives, it would be grilled cheese. Sure we would eventually have to pay for two airline seats and purchase a Neti Pot to keep our nostrils clear, but you know what, it’d be worth it. If you’re in the same boat, here are The Web’s Best Grilled Cheese Sandwiches that you can cook up and enjoy too.

The Best, Non-Crazy Ways to Use Grocery Coupons I use the circulars from our favorite grocery store each week to plan our weekly menu. Our circulars are included in our Sunday paper and we have a subscription for just that day. Then, I use coupons included in the paper or those I've stumbled across and sometimes I'll go online to coupon.com or similar to scan for items of interest. bake sale week: raspberry lemonade bars I know this seems like a bit of a cop out, seeing as last year I made those lime bars, but the name of these just makes you want one, doesn’t it? It’s like one last throw back to the summertime captured in a cookie. raspberry lemonade bars for the crust: 9 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick, plus one tablespoon) 1/4 cup (50g) superfine sugar (or regular granulated) 1 cup (100g) of unbleached all-purpose flour pinch salt for the filling: 1 1/2 cups (287g) superfine sugar (or regular granulated) 3 egg whites 1 egg 2/3 cup (150mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 3 lemons) 2 tablespoons lemon zest (from 2 lemons) 2/3 cup (65g) unbleached, all-purpose flour pinch of salt 1-2 cups (150-275g) of frozen raspberries, defrosted 1 tablespoon confectioner’s sugar

Cookies and Cream Cheesecake My husband has always been a big fan of cookies and cream ice cream and cheesecake, and I’ve always been a big fan of making him food that he loves. It’s only taken me nine years of marriage to come up with the idea of combining his favorite ice cream with his favorite dessert. I was both pleasantly surprised and quite dismayed to realize that cookies and cream cheesecake is quite possibly the best dessert out there. Pleasantly surprised because I’m normally not a fan of cookies and cream unless it’s just a plain ol’ Oreo and dismayed because I couldn’t stop sneaking into the kitchen to take just one more bite. This cheesecake is dangerous. That’s okay though, because life is pretty boring without a bit of danger.

15 Minutes to Fame – Gnocchi for Beginners. And for Braggarts. May 19th, 2009 I just don’t know where to start. Sometimes a proper introduction to a recipe is so far out of reach & the spark just won’t catch – not so today. Plan Your Weekly Meals, Stress Free I've been planning my recipes and doing my shopping for the week ahead for years now. Awesome idea. One thing I've learned - you just cant set meals for specific days. Even choosing tomorrows meal is a bit wonky. I used to try at first, but there are just way too many things that crop up to stop you - meeting a mate for a drink after work, small (or missed) lunch so you're starving when you get home and your meal takes an hour to make, 'accidentally' snacking mid-afternoon so not hungry when you get home, delayed journeys, too tired when you get in to start faffing around with big recipes.
