Diastatic malt powder, the history of bagels, and a bagel shaping lesson... all covered in this post! Plus some of the best bagels I've ever eaten.
This is an amazing soup with ginger in the chicken broth. This is from my participation in Wok Wednesdays, where we are cooking our way through Grace Young's amazing book, Stir Frying to the Sky's Edge. Actually, there are just two of us bloggers left, but we are mighty, and we've agreed not to post the exact recipe. Still, you visited this post!
This one kind of surprised me. I made this to go with these Cheddar Cheese Crackers with some ingredients I had on hand (don't you love it when it works?) but wasn't particularly happy with the photos. I posted it anyway, and, of all things, it took off on Pinterest! Goes to show you that folks just like good food. Thank you for that.
True confession time.... when I posted this bread, I had no idea I had actually posted this exact recipe nearly 2 1/2 years ago. Doh! I discovered it when I added this post to my Recipe Index. I even talk about how I've never posted this recipe before.
I'm glad I posted it again. I'm pretty sure it's my cousin's gorgeous homemade jam from home grown berries that made the difference!
I'm pretty excited about these rolls, and so were you. Bread using a tangzhong has always fascinated me because of the soft, fluffy bread it produces. This recipe was shared with me by my friend Dave from across the pond, and I'm so glad you liked these.
P.S. I just got my Jan/Feb 2016 copy of Cook's Illustrated, and guess what they featured? Tangzhong dinner rolls!
I love fish, and this halibut prepared in parchment paper was one of my favorite recipes of 2015. It's pretty foolproof, flavorful, and very healthy. I used some amazing Alaskan halibut too. This one is perfect for company.
These things are ridiculous. They are coated in a bag of Kettle potato chips. That's all I need to say.
I made this ice cream for my oldest grandson's birthday at his request. I'm so happy you liked it too.
This is another Wok Wednesday post without the actual recipe. This one took off on StumbleUpon for some reason. Maybe it's because I captured steam in the photograph!
The pork in these spring rolls is prepared in the slow cooker! These are so fresh and flavorful, and the dipping sauce is fabulous. They make an amazing appetizer or light dinner.
These are delicious, fluffy, and include pineapple juice in the recipe. They are reminiscent of the Portuguese style breads first introduced to Hawaii in the 19th century by Portuguese immigrants.
This was my most visited post for 2015. I got a little boost from Yummly on these, when they featured them in a newsletter. Have you heard of Yummly? It's an amazing site to explore and collect (or "yum") recipes from around the web. They even give you the ingredient list and nutrition information for each recipe. All you need to do is "Yum" a food recipe post, and it will end up in your Recipe Box. It's pretty cool. Here's my page!
Here's to a flavorful 2016!
