Dr. Pepper Barbecue Sauce Recipe at Epicurious. I too love this bbq sauce but have added my own twists.

Dr. Pepper Barbecue Sauce Recipe at Epicurious

I only had salted butter so I omitted the salt, then melted the butter and skimmed the butter fats before adding the onions and garlic, so it was essentially clarified butter. I also like a nice cherry flavor so I used a mix of half dr pepper half black cherry soda, but I bet cherry dr pepper would also do the trick. I also didn't have the ancho chili powders, but I did have some scotch bonnet sauce which I used about a teaspoon. My wife doesn't like the spicy bbq sauces, so I gotta keep it on the low, for me, I would probably triple that amount or more.

Punchfork — The best new recipes from top food sites. Crockpot Cuban Pork. Crockpot Cuban Pork When I was in college, after I had put on that extra “freshman 15″, which in my case was actually a freshman 40, I decided to go vegetarian. It wasn’t for any other reason than to lose the extra weight I had put on. I made it a few weeks, and lost a little bit of weight, but my cravings did me in. Not hamburger or pizza cravings, but my cravings for pork. I could go without fried chicken, believe it or not, even juicy hamburgers, but it’s always that beautiful pulled pork, sweet ham and crisp salty bacon that I just can’t live without. This pulled pork is my interpretation of one of my favorite little Cuban dive restaurant’s roast pork they have in their Cuban sandwiches. I served this with sweet Hawaiian rolls to make little Cuban pork sliders and a simple salad. Cooking is fun now. Deal with it. Penniesonaplatter.

Rubik's Battenburg Cake. Why make this cake?

Rubik's Battenburg Cake

The Rubik’s cube is close to my heart as I am a child of the eighties and the Rubik’s cube always brings me back to a time of joy and wonder. It’s hard to imagine kids today being as fascinated as I was by such a simple but clever toy. I wanted to make a cake that epitomizes this ingenious and timeless invention. I knew it would have to be a clever cake that would make you question how it was made. Thankfully I had the help of my other half and his engineering brain to assist with the planning and general maths of this cake. Materials ListOne Basic Battenberg – White coloured and Yellow coloured cake - 6 oz. of butter - 6 oz. of castor sugar - 3 eggs - 6oz of self-rising flour - 2 drops of almond essence (optional for the white) - Zest of half an unwaxed lemon (optional for the yellow) - few drops of yellow food colouring.
