Re: King Arthur Flour Brownie Recipe (with espresso powder)

I found my recipe that is exactly the same as the one up top that Dave posted. I just made these brownies and didn't have a problem mixing the cocoa powder with the 4 eggs, salt, baking powder and vanilla. I leave out the 1 tsp espresso powder but it doesn't seem like it would make that much differe...

Re: King Arthur Flour Brownie Recipe (with espresso powder)

I have a very similar K.A. recipe that has you add the eggs to the mixture along with the cocoa, salt, baking powder, espresso powder, and vanilla, just before the flour and chips. 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened 2 cups light brown sugar 3/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa 1 teaspoon salt 1 teasp...

Re: Benne Wafers - a Southern Cookie

Yes!!! My folks lived in Spartanburg, SC and Benne wafers were a staple among their crowd when having guests over for drinks 'fore dinner. I have had them many times.

Re: Thanksgiving Menus, Recipes, and Ideas

Sounds great tattulip! I found the slow cooker to work well at cooking hard squashes but I don't think it would leave the skins good for another use. I like your idea of using the hardened shells for flowers on the table. Always use a meat thermometer to gauge doneness. Yes! I only use the times to ...

I don't know where I've been all my life but this is the first year I've ever heard of brining a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. Has this been a common practice for years or is it a new twist?

Re: Thanksgiving Menus, Recipes, and Ideas

In my opinion, it is cheating to put yeast in your sourdough starter. Also, the finest waffles can't be made on 'non-stick' coated surfaces. Old waffle irons before 'non-stick' make the best waffles.

Dried beans are cheap and nutritious. You can make lots of soups and chilis using all sorts of beans. They are listed G for all phases in the South Beach guide.

Hi Pixie!

There's a whole section in the Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Cookbook on ribs and wings. They sound really good. I haven't had ribs in ages. I think I'll try making some next week.

Right now I have a whole chicken in the pot. I'm using GoodBoy's coke recipe above.

I'd say a B&B needs some signature dishes to set them apart and keep people coming back for more. Like say, special recipe homemade doughnuts or fruit fritters on the breakfast menu?

Not being from the South, I never could see what's so great about grits. :whistle:
