Re: Canelé - a little advanced baking

OK, I made these yesterday and they were fantastic! I started out with a 475 degree oven, then immediately turned it down to 450. They bake at 450 for 15 minutes, then I turned them down to 375 for 45 more minutes. They came out crispy/chewy on the outside and custard-like on the inside. I have mor...

Oh, my gosh, by the time dinner was served I was full from the Gruyere rolls!!!!
That's the cheese I use for my mac and cheese. Very good, and very expensive. But worth it.

Re: Browned Butter Cocoa Brownies

Just made a batch of brownies from the latest issue of Bon Appetit magazine. And, it calls for browned butter. I also made a cookie recipe back in December that also had browned butter. It creates a darker, nuttier flavor in baked goods. The Brownies turned out very well. I found that they were a s...

Re: Graham pecan chews

I probably just added too much sugar. I didn't pre-measure, and as easily distracted as I get, I wouldn't be surprised if I lost count and added too much. The only substitute I made was the coconut oil for the shortening, because a) I didn't have and shortening, and b) I didn't have any coconut fla...

Re: Spicy Chili Recipe / Chili Recipe

See, I don't understand why people refuse to share recipes... it makes no sense to me. TT, I have never seen a chili recipe using potato flakes to thicken it so, I can be of no help. I don't understand that either! What is the point of that? It just seems selfish and mean spirited. :grrr: I don't u...

Re: Graham pecan chews

.... No wonder you thought the coconut cake was too sweet. It was the coconut oil that made it so. Not possible. Coconut oil is not sweet. Not at all. And I deleted the coconut flavoring that is in the original recipe. So if anything, I used LESS sweetener. I just don't like to use shortening. I kn...

:lolh: I didn't know that. No it's not healthy. Butter is much better for you just don't eat more than a pat or two a day. Hey I knew a guy that would eat one pat of butter for every piece of steak he ate. His name was "Big Brad." He was a friend of my brother in laws. He swore it was true. :teehee:

So we wrapped the individual cuts in bacon and loaded them in BBQ shake. They went into a pan on the gas...
