Pita Bread

Pita Bread
Pita bread is a great bread for beginning bakers or for making with kids. The entire process of making them only takes about two hours too, so it is also a great one for people on a tight schedule. Flat breads can be made in dozens of different ways. Anyone who grew up in a household where flat breads are an essential part of every meal knows will attest that they are a hundred times better when baked fresh than when bought from the store wrapped in plastic and already two or three days old. I wasn't brought up in such a house, actually, but a year or two ago I started going to a local Lebanese restaurant solely for the fresh pita bread that they baked. There are only 6 ingredients in this recipe for pita bread, and you even have quite a bit of flexibility in choosing which of those to include. If you are using active dry yeast, follow the instructions on the packet to active it (see the note on yeast above). While the dough is resting, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. That's it. Yum!

ratatouille’s ratatouille Tell me I’m not alone in this: You saw Ratatouille, fell in love with Remy (though you still jumped a foot in the air when you saw a significantly less-charming rodent scamper across your path on the way home) and found yourself with a pressing craving, not for the heavy and too-often soggy traditional Provençal ratatouille, but that kaleidoscope of spiraled colors they served to the haughty and (spoiler!) soon-humbled restaurant critic. I can’t believe how well this worked out. We’re just getting to the point in the summer where all of the vegetables are readying themselves for their farmers’ market close-up, so the timing couldn’t be better. There are a lot of things not traditional about this version of ratatouille–the lack of herbes de province, that it’s baked and that we ate it with both couscous and a dollop of soft goat cheese–but if you’re like me, and the chunkier authentic stuff has never done it for you, it’s time for this re-creation. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Hokkaido Milk Bread with Tangzhong Every now and then you learn a new technique in the kitchen that really knocks your socks off. Tangzhong is one of them. Tangzhong Tangzhong is the technique of heating a portion of the flour and liquid in your recipe to approximately 65C to make a paste (roux). It is really easy to do a tangzhong. Once it is evenly thickened, remove from heat and allow to cool down some before making your final dough. Reportedly you can cover it and keep it in the fridge for a few days before using it, but I baked with it immediately. Hokkaido Milk Bread We have some great Asian bakeries in Vancouver and they all make some version of a Milk Bread. My recipe is a hybrid of a bunch of different recipes I found online and credit below. 1/3 C all purpose flour 1 C liquids (I used 2/3 C water and 1/3 C milk) Final Dough 800g (around 5 C) all purpose flour 1/2 C sugar 50g (1/2 C) milk powder 1/2 C half and half 3/4 C milk 2 eggs 4 T butter 4 t instant yeast 1 t salt all of the tangzhong Look at that crumb!

Faire ses pâtes fraiches maison, aux oeufs et à la semoule de blé dur J’adore quand je peux cuisiner un maximum de plats 100% maison ! L’idéal pour moi serait de pouvoir manger que ce que j’ai fait avec mes petites mains ou que je fais pousser dans mon jardin. Le soucis c’est que ce n’est pas évident pour tout… (d’autant plus que je n’ai pas de jardin !) Le fromage par exemple, je doute pouvoir faire mon Comté moi-même dans ma cave (avec les bons gaz d’échappement des garages d’à côté, miam !) mais je me débrouille tout de même pas mal je pense. Il faut savoir que cette machine m’a été offerte pour mon anniversaire… Il y a 6 mois ! Je pensais que ce serait long, je pensais que ce serait compliqué, en fait je pensais ne pas m’en sortir. Semoule de blé dur ou farine ? La semoule de blé dur est la plus adaptée pour réaliser des pâtes fraiches, elle assure une meilleure tenue des pâtes à la cuisson. Mais j’ai vu un tas de recettes de pâtes qui utilisent de la farine, je n’ai pas l’impression que les gens se plaignent que leur pâtes « ne tiennent pas ».

Ratatouille recept Doe olijfolie in een wok en maak dit goed heet. Voeg de uien en de knoflook toe en wok een paar minuten tot lichtbruin. Doe dit dan in een grote vuurvaste schaal. Doe ditzelfde met alle ingrediënten (paprika, courgette en aubergine) en voeg onder het roosteren wat peper en grof gemalen zeezout toe. Als alles is geroosterd en in de vuurvaste schaal ligt, doe dan de tomaten erbij en een kwart van de Soffrito. Verwarm de oven tot 160 à 170 graden celsius en plaats de met aluminiumfolie afgedekte schaal in de oven voor 35 à 45 minuten. Strooi er voor het opdienen wat peterselie overheen. Lekker bij gegrilleerde vis (poon, dorade, zeebaars, victoriabaars, roodbaars, tonijn, zwaardvis) of met lamsvlees. Tip!

Drying will never replace canning and freezing because these methods do a better job of retaining the taste, appearance, and nutritive value of fresh food. Recommended methods for canning and freezing have been determined by research and widespread experience. With the renewed interest in gardening and natural foods and because of the high cost of commercially dried products, drying foods at home is becoming popular again. Although solar drying is a popular and very inexpensive method, Illinois does not have a suitable climate for it. Drying food in the oven of a kitchen range, on the other hand, can be very expensive.
