Macaroon Cookie Recipe

Posted on 08 January 2012 by admin

Macaroon Cookie Recipe can be prepared with just a little effort. These like all classics are a little temperamental: you have to pipe them out onto the baking sheet. High humidity will definitely destroy the batter, so make them on a sunny, dry day. Despite all that, there’s a big payoff: a moist, domed almond cookie that’s perfect with a bowl of berries. Makes about 30 cookies. Ingredients and simple directions:

MACAROONS COOKIE RECIPE

INGREDIENTS :

One 7-ounce tube almond paste
1 cup sugar
2 large egg whites, whisked until foamy in a small bowl, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon salt, optional

DIRECTIONS :

Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Place the almond paste and sugar in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer at medium speed until well blended, in soft but dry pieces, somewhat like the feel of Play-Doh but not smooth or creamy, about 5 minutes.
Beat in the egg whites in 1-tablespoon increments, making sure each is fully incorporated before adding the next and scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. When all the egg whites have been added, beat until the batter is the consistency of caulk or grout, a little grainy but very smooth, and able to hold its shape.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared baking mat. Alternatively, fill a pastry bag fitted with a 8(5⁄8-inch) tip with the batter and pipe out small kisses that have about 11/2 teaspoons batter in each; swirl the bag at the end of each dollop to create a twisty topknot on each macaroon.
Bake until lightly browned and a little cracked but still soft to the touch, about 8 minutes.

To cool:

Let the cookies stand on the baking sheet for 4 minutes before transferring with a metal spatula to a wire rack to cool completely.

Cool the baking sheet for 5 minutes before making more macaroons; replace the parchment paper if it’s frizzled or browned.

To store:

The macaroons can be kept at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 days; freezing is not recommended.

Chocolate-Dipped Almond Macaroons : Melt 6 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate in the microwave on high or in the top part of a double boiler over simmering water just until there are still some chunks left; remove the chocolate from the heat and continue stirring until fully melted. Lay a large sheet of wax paper on your work surface, then dip the bottoms of the cooled cookies into the melted chocolate. Let the excess drizzle back into the bowl, then set the cookies on the wax paper to firm up, about 1 hour.

Follow the easy directions.Lots of fun preparing Macaroon Cookies  and Bon Apetit.

Cooking Healthy Pork Chops

Posted on 05 January 2012 by admin

Pork chops can be easily churned out beacuse pork is considered to be the most versatile amongst all meats. You can across plenty of pork chop recipes across internet and otherwise. The pork chop tastes good in any way , so its difficult to make it bad. The pork chop recipes can go well with seasoning or sauce.

You can easily come up with tasty pork chops, and if you are going for some astounding recipes then it’s going to be little tricky. Some flavors blend well with pork chops, whereas others make it too marvelous.

On hearing the word pork chop many of the dieters may squeeze their brows thinking how they can have it without adding to their hips. As more and more people are growing conscious about the foods that they eat, but the shortage of time is often driving them to look out for quick fixes. Luckily there are many healthy ingredients which can be added to suck quick fixes to make them tasty too. You can come across strong flavors that go well with red meats such as beef, bu these flavors often cause harm to our bodies than expected. The strong flavors are used to flavorise the meats which would taste dull without their infusion. But in case of the pork chop recipes it is exactly the opposite they taste good with light flavors and every healthy ingredient can be added to them.

Many people enjoy barbecues especially the pork chop barbecues. You can devise your own techniques of developing healthy barbecue pork chops. Most of us use readymade barbecue sauces to save time. But these readymade barbecue sauces are unhealthy and often cause harm to your body than good.

For preparing a healthy barbecue base you can begin with a tomato sauce. The tomato sauce is nice, thick and full of flavors. Normally vinegar or mustard paste is used as the base in readymade barbecue sauce. You can begin with very small amount of Worcestershire sauce. The Worcestershire sauce is utterly unhealthy thing, but you will need it in very minimal amounts to get your sauces started. Then you can add healthy ingredients like pepper, ginger, garlic, oregano and paprika. You can perhaps experiment with various other herbs and spices to prepare pork chop recipes. The interesting deal about these ingredients is that some of them may negate the flavors and taste of the tomato and Worcestershire sauce. The same ingredients may help you to make differently tasting pork chop too.

Chicken Chili with Beans

Chicken Chili with Beans

Posted on 04 January 2012 by admin

When it comes to comfort food, chili  with or without beans has to be way up on the list. I remember from grade school every Wednesday a pal and I would order 4 bowls of chili and wolf it down. My appetite for chili hasn’t changed much since then but my hope to be healthy has caused me to rethink and research how chili is made. Changing from beef to chicken isn’t that much of a sacrifice. If you just can’t give up the beef flavor then add a little lean ground round steak in place of the chicken.

The recipe has a couple of items you don’t always see in chili, such as brown sugar and Mexican style chili beans (they have some green chiles). You could use Mexican style refried beans in place of the chili beans.

This substitution will give you a thicker and heartier chili.

By all means use this recipe as a starter and add some ingredients of your own. Who knows, you may come up with a chili to enter in a regional chili contest.

Ingredients

1 small onion, chopped

(1) 14 1/2 oz. can diced tomatoes

(1) 15 1/2 oz. can Mexican style chili beans

2 cloves fresh garlic, minced

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoon butter

6 oz.boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 1/2″ cubes

Instructions:

1 – In a cast iron skillet (Wagner chicken fryer) heat oil on low, saute’ onion until translucent, then add
garlic and cook about 1 minute

longer.

Note – garlic may taste bitter if cooked longer at this point.

2 – Remove the onion and garlic to a plate and set aside.

3 – Melt the butter in the same skillet, coat the chicken pieceswith chili powder and cumin, then stir-fry about 5 minutes

4 – Add salt and the onion-garlic mixture, then deglaze the pan

by adding the diced tomatoes along with their juice.

5 – Add brown sugar, then chili beans

6 – Bring to a boil, then turn heat down to just below boiling and

simmer for 15 minutes

.7 – Serve over cooked brown rice.

Comments – This is a really great tasting chili!

The Vegetarian Chili Recipe Using Alternatives to Animal Ingredients

Posted on 02 January 2012 by admin

Missing the taste and texture of meat in your meals? You may not be able to use meat in your vegetarian chili recipe, but who says you can’t use a meat substitute? Believe it or not, there are many vegan alternatives to animal ingredients. And, while it’s true they don’t taste like the real thing, they come awfully close. Below are some of the safe vegan alternatives to common animal ingredients.

Meat. Try portobello mushrooms, textured vegetable protein or TVP, tempeh, tofu, beans, eggplant, or seitan. If you can’t think of a single vegetarian chili recipe that will complement any of those perfectly, take your search online. You’ll be surprised at the number of recipes you can find.

Parmesan cheese. Make your own fake Parmesan cheese by blending 1/4 tablespoon salt, 1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds, and 1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes.

Blend until everything has been completely ground up, and use the same way you would the regular Parmesan cheese.

Mayonnaise. Most vegans live in fear of mayo but not you, and not with this tofu mayo. Simply blend 1 cup silken or firm tofu, 1 small garlic clove that has been minced, 1 teaspoon good mustard, 1/4 tablespoon salt, and 2 tablespoons cider vinegar. Continue blending while you pour the canola or olive oil.

Sugar. Fruit juice, sucanat, and natural sugar are great alternatives to the usual sugar households use.

Eggs. Instead of eggs, you can use flaxseed, tofu that has been pureed, soy eggs, or egg substitutes.

Milk. Can’t use regular milk in your cooking? Improvise with almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, or rice milk.

Don’t limit yourself to this list, though.

Experiment with different ingredients so you can come up with textures and flavors uniquely your own. In the same way there is more than one way to skin a cat, there are 101 ways to whip up one vegetarian chili recipe after another.

Salmon Appetizer Recipe For Your Next Party

Posted on 02 January 2012 by admin

This is one of our best recipes for appetizers. My favorite way to serve this is in the shape of a ball, like a cheese ball. Once the overnight refrigeration has been done, cover the salmon ball with freshly minced parsley. It makes a beautiful centerpiece and the parsley is a nice contrast for this creamy appetizer. Just follow the recipe below.

This one really is tops on our list of make ahead appetizers. You can make this in any shape you wish. I have made this in the form of a salmon loaf recipe, just use a square container instead of the rounded container. Add the parsley just as you would on the rounded version. This can also be used as a salmon dip. Leave it in your container and serve with crackers.

You just can’t have too many appetizer recipes and a salmon appetizer recipe can jazz up your party. Everyone gets tired of the same old cheese ball at every gathering.

This adds a little imagination to the mix. Finally, a salmon recipe with a kick.

Amount Measure Ingredient — Preparation Method

16 Ounces Salmon, Fully Cooked, Pieced and Chilled

8 Ounces Cream Cheese, Softened

4 Tbs Lemon Juice

4 Tsp Onion, Grated

2 Tsp Horseradish, Grated

1/8 Tsp Worcestershire Sauce

1/8 Tsp Liquid Smoke

1 1/2 Cups Parsley, Fresh, Minced

1. Mix all ingredients, except the parsley, together in a mixing bowl.

2. Line a rounded storage bowl with plastic wrap and pour the mixture into the bowl. Press mixture firmly into the bowl and use a spatula to smooth the top to make a solid base.

3. Refrigerate overnight.

4. Just before serving, mince the parsley. Lift the salmon ball from the storage bowl and put it flat side down on your serving platter.

Cover the ball with the parsley, pressing it all around the sides and the top to make it stick to the ball.

A Crock Pot Chili That You Can Easily Make at Home !

Posted on 05 January 2011 by admin

Do you have a crock pot in a closet or kitchen cabinet someplace in your house? Are you a throwback to the 70’s? I am! But what the hey! When was the last time that you used it to actually cook something? The crock pot is not some old “fad” that has come and gone you know! The crock pot is alive and well today! Just take a look at how it has evolved over the years when you go to the big retail outlets in your town. I remember when they were strictly “manually” operated. A manual knob for warm, medium and high. Today, they are all glitzed up with fancy electronic controls and readouts. Today, they are like the crock pots that you would expect on the starship Enterprise! The crock pot is not a lazy way of cooking, on the contrary it is so efficient as to be able to prep the ingredients you want then put them in the crock in the morning and when you get home, viola! dinner is served. It is an economical way of cooking. If you are a chili lover as I am then you know that the crock pot is a great way to make your best chili recipes quickly and easily! So let’s make some chili shall we!

The ingredients:

3 pounds of steak. You can use round, flank, skirt, chuck if on a budget. Any cut you want. I like to cube and shred the meat for texture purposes.

1 15oz can of beans. Any will do, kidney, small red beans, pinto beans. No white beans for this recipe though!1 large onion finely chopped either a brown or red onion the choice is yours.

1 large green bell pepper finely chopped.
4 bulbs of garlic finely chopped.
1 small can 6-8 oz tomato sauce.
1 small can 6-8 oz tomato paste.
1 6-7 oz can of diced green chilies.
1 big can 28oz of fire roasted tomatoes plain or with green chilies mixed in or 6 to 8 large tomatoes that you have roasted on the BBQ.

1 tablespoon of California chili powder.
1 tablespoon of New Mexico chili powder.
1 teaspoon of smoked paprika.
1 1/2 teaspoon of cumin.
3 tablespoons of olive oil.
1 1/2 teaspoons of salt or season salt.

OK, Let’s get cooking!

I love large skillets! my fave is a cast iron skillet. I am old fashioned that way! So, get a large skillet and put your beef in it to brown it up  in the 3 tablespoons of olive oil. When the beef is all browned it is time to toss it into the crock pot and then toss the rest of your ingredients in there as well! Cook this mixture for 6 to eight hours, and if you are home at the time then taste it every now and again to see if you want to add something to it or not! As an aside as always I suggest cooking this mixture or any chili recipe a day in advance as the flavors get to mingle together, but if that is not possible that is OK too! This meal is ready to eat and enjoy!

In this article we have looked at one of the best chili recipes you can make, simple crock pot chili recipes that are easy, creative and fun to make as well as being healthy and quite satisfying!

Quick And Easy Recipe Ideas Using Cream Cheese

Posted on 04 January 2011 by admin

If you’re a cream cheese lover then you’ll want to know how to incorporate it into every meal and snack of the day. Here’s a few ideas to try out:

Breakfast

Spread fruit toast with light cream cheese; top with fruit.

Spread 2 slices of bread with light cream cheese spread. Top one bread with 1/2 banana, sliced and the other bread with raisins. Close together to make a breakfast sandwich you’ll remember.

Cut apple into slices; remove and discard core. Spread with light cream cheese; sprinkle liberally with your favourite cereal, chopped nuts, or raisins. Yum!

Appetisers

For quick and easy appetizer nibblers, spread cream cheese on flour tortillas. Top with desired sliced deli or cooked meats and vegetables; roll tightly. Slice on the diagonal.

Spread cream cheese on water crackers, toasted pumpernickel or dark rye rounds. Sprinkle with chopped dill or chives; top with smoked salmon. Works a treat!

Try mixing together 1/2 cup cream cheese with 1 grated carrot and 1/4 cup dried cranberries – or maybe give some dried fruit a try? Fill stalks of celery with mixture; cut into bite-size pieces.

Dips

Tuna and Salsa Dip:
Combine 1 pkg (250g) cream cheese with 1/2 cup tuna, or perhaps some prawns, 1/4 cup salsa, and 2 Tbsp. chopped coriander. Serve with crackers, doubt you’ll regret it.

Tuscan Dip:
Blend 1 pkg (250g) cream cheese, softened, with 2 Tbsp. sour cream. Add 1/2 cup finely chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained, 1/2 cup chopped black pitted olives, and 1/4 cup finely chopped red onions. Glass of Chianti optional.

Dill Sauce/Dip:
Ready? Place 1 sliced green onion, 1 garlic clove, and 1 Tbsp. fresh dill in food processor; process until finely chopped. Add 1 pkg. (250 g) cream cheese, 3 Tbsp. lemon juice, 1 Tbsp. olive oil, and a pinch of salt; process until smooth. Spoon over grilled vegetables, or place in a bowl for dipping. Hey presto, you’re a domestic goddess (or god, as the case may be!)

Snacks/Sandwiches

Fruit and Nut Bites:
Try topping crackers with cream cheese and jam (strawberry’s good!); sprinkle with a few toasted sliced almonds. Works for me!

Croque Monsieur (AKA Fancy Toasted Sandwich):
Spread 1 Tbsp. of cream cheese on a toasted thick slice of crusty bread. Top with sliced ham and shredded cheese; grill until cheese (or partner’s heart) is melted.

Party Cheese Ball:
Blend 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese with 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened. If you like, add 1 Tbsp. port wine. Wrap in a sheet of plastic wrap and shape into a ball. Refrigerate about an hour or so before unwrapping. Roll in paprika or very finely chopped toasted nuts. How’s that for a block party? Sorry, couldn’t resist.

Try this: spread flour tortilla with cream cheese. Sprinkle with grated carrot and a few raisins. Roll up tightly, cut in half, and devour!

Paleo Cookies ? Even the Cookie Monster Would Approve this Paleo Cookie Recipe!

Posted on 04 January 2011 by admin

If you’re looking for a yummy paleo cookie recipe, then raise your hands in delight right now because that’s what I’m going to share with you today!

But I got a little story to tell so hear me out please…Just feel like getting it off my chest is all.

You know, I was watching Sesame Street with my niece recently and the cookie monster came on screen bellowing his infamous lines:” Me want paleo cookies!”, “Me eat paleo cookies!”

Well…Alright, he didn’t actually say “paleo” cookies. My mind was kind of messed up at the time. I was so obsessed about finding paleo cookie recipes!  

You see, the Paleolithic diet lifestyle was driving me nuts!

Now, this is a very healthy diet and after being a “caveman” for a couple of months, I see marked improvement in my physique as I’ve finally lost some body fat and feel more energetic.

But the problem is…

I was getting a little tired of eating boredom-induced paleo meals. I couldn’t find any decent dessert recipes done caveman style. Specifically, I wanted cookies for dessert…

So I asked myself, “For the love of everything holy, how on earth do I make some paleo-friendly cookies?” And I also wanted some decent dessert recipes.  I had enough of eating fruits after every meal (healthy yes, but I wanted something new for a change)!

Luckily, I found several paleo diet cookbooks containing hundreds of recipes and guess what?

They got paleo cookies in there (JOY)!

The cookbooks are available as download only. If you’re crazy about paleo desserts like me, then rejoice again because they have great stuff like choco and coconut custard, marzipan, nut balls etc along with paleo breakfast, dinner and lunch recipes. It’s all there.

Follow this link if you’re interested in those cookbooks…

Okay that said; let’s learn how to make some sinfully delicious hazelnut paleo cookies ASAP!

Ingredients:

•    Hazelnut meal (2 cups)
•    3 egg whites
•    2 tsp of ground cinnamon
•    1 ½ tsp of ground nutmeg
•    2 tbs of melted honey

Directions:

•    Use a fan-forced oven and pre-heat to about 180 °C.

•    Drop everything in a mixing bowl except for egg whites. Combine those ingredients well.

•    Use another bowl to beat the egg white until stiff peak forms. Now, nicely and gently fold the beaten egg whites into the hazelnut meal.

•    Lay a sheet of baking paper on a baking tray. Put small pieces of mixture on the tray and finally, bake in the oven until it looks brown and crispy (approx 15 minutes).

Now enjoy some hazelnut paleo cookies that I reckon even the cookie monster would approve!

And if you’re interested in making more delicious Paleolithic recipes like rustic, hot and spicy chicken salad, mango sorbet, along with other fancy paleo desserts like lemon tarts, cherry balls etc. Follow this link: http://www.paleorecipecookbooks.info/
