Day 4 – Flapper Pie and a Blue Prairie Sky by Karlynn Johnston | 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!

Sundays are best for rolling around in bed, going to church and for baking sweet treats with a glass of milk with ice cubes! Even better if the milk itself is grass fed and hormone free too! To be honest, I don’t have much of a sweet […]

Day 4 – Bake with Anna Olson | 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!

We love HGTV, Food Network and Netflix at the Lui household. And if you are like us, chances are you’ve baked with Anna Olson a handful of times. How could anyone resists baking classic chocolate chip cookies or citrus Madeleines?!

Citrus Madeleines
by Anna Olson

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp finely grated orange or lemon zest
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted (still warm)
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil

 

DIRECTIONS

1. Whip the eggs with the sugar, citrus zest and vanilla with electric beaters or in a stand mixer fitted with the whip attachment on high speed until the eggs are thick and pale and hold a ribbon when the beaters are lifted, about 3 minutes.

2. Sift the flour and baking powder together and add this to the eggs while beating on medium-low speed, mixing until blended. In a separate bowl, whisk the butter, milk and oil together. Spoon about a cup of the batter into the butter and whisk it in. Add this all back to the base batter and fold until blended. Cover and chill the batter for 2 hours, to set the butter.

3. Preheat the oven to 375 °F (190 °C). Lightly grease and flour 2 madeleine pans , tapping out any excess flour.

4. Stir the chilled madeleine batter gently to deflate it slightly (this is key to help getting the little bump that a well-made madeleine has) and with an ice cream scoop or a piping bag fitted with a plain tip, fill the madeleine molds (they will fill ¾ full). Bake the madeleines for 10 minutes, then bang the pans down (again, for the bump) before returning to the oven for another 5-7 minutes, until the madeleines are golden brown at the edges. Remove the madeleines from the pan immediately and enjoy warm or at room temperature.

The Southern Vegetarian Cookbook – Brussels Sprout Salad with Smoked Feta and Candied Pecans

 We were recently sent a few Southern cookbooks from the good folks at OMG Publicity. This was one of the books, the other was In a Snap!: Tasty Southern Recipes You Can Make in 5, 10, 15, or 30 Minutes by Tammy Algood where we featured the Red Pepper Cheese […]

Cookbook - In a Snap

 

 

We were recently sent a few Southern cookbooks from the good folks at OMG Publicity. In a Snap!: Tasty Southern Recipes You Can Make in 5, 10, 15, or 30 Minutes by Tammy Algood author of Farm Fresh Southern Cooking. I love the fact that it is aimed for meals under half hour. In fact, most recipes can be made in 5, 10, 15, or 30 minutes as the title suggests. Ingredients for the recipes are affordable unlike the Thomas Keller – The French Laundry Cookbook that we so often drool over and holds a permanent spot on our coffee table.  The pictures in the book also includes some colorful photos and is sectioned and color coded. It is great for people like me with OCD.

Cookbook - In a Snap

 

 

Red Pepper Cheese Dip
Yields: 1.5 cups

Ingredients:
1 package (8 ounce) cream cheese
1 tbsp milk or half/half
1/2 cup chopped, roasted, sweet red bell peppers
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

 

  1. Place cream cheese in a glass bowl and microwave on high power for 20 seconds to soften.
  2. Add milk, bell peppers, and feta cheese.

  4. Serve asap.
  5. Storage Note: Store leftover in the refrigerator and consume within 5 days.
