So we are being asked to help only with your labor cost ... You have all the food and equipment and paper supplies PLUS your profit already in line? Just askin' is all. mimi
We call this candy Angel Food and is one of my fave guilty pleasures. Pete posted his recipe during this last holiday season. Looks to be a good one and I really like the addition of the chocolate dip. mimi
Having so much fun so will add one last slow cooker item. How about a slather of apple butter on a hot and buttery biscuit? Gave most of the jars away but found this one hidden behind a box of yogurt in the "drinks" fridge. The apple butter from last fall. The biscuit and butter a bit fresher. mimi
Moving right along..... Wanted to add another dessert so started digging thru my well stocked pantry and came across a can of condensed milk that was just this side of expiration and had another brilliant idea. Sorry if I am bragging but there were so many "not" hits that I thought I was due for some luck coming my way lol. The easiest way in the world to make caramel is to take a few cans of condensed ( not evaporated) milk and submerge in boiling water for a few...
After the disastrous first attempt I decided to think out of the box. Was up late last nite and the last thing I did before retiring was to throw together a slow cook breakfast. Who doesn't love oatmeal...right? After my previous experiments decided to skip right past the quick cook kind (which are barely usable for cookies IMO) and went straight to the steel cut. Added water, salt, raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon and cranberries to the crock set on low and went to...
Dessert from a crockpot is not only delish but simple, or so I was promised by not only countless blogs but also one grey haired lady pushing her cookbook in the middle of the nite. Always have been gullible and told myself if those people can take a can of this and a jar of that and toss a box of whatever on top then I should be able to do it . No sweat.....right? Was able to salvage the last 2 jars of home canned cherry pie filling from one attempt and about half of a...
I had logged out and was merrily on my way when something stopped me in my tracks. Did he say aluminum pan? Came back, logged back in and yep you posted aluminum. Aluminum pans are considered to be reactive and therefore not a good choice when using a recipe that contains baking soda. Stainless steel as well as enamel are better choices. Even an enamel coated aluminum would work. Had a bit of a problem trying to post a link so if you want the science just google it. Lots...
Sounds like you need that thermometer and may also try with a different recipe. Say..... one that uses temps for each stage. So look over a few (recipes) while you wait for FedEx to show up. mimi
Welcome to Chef Talk!You will find many members with your same interest...... me for one lol.Not only is there an endless variety of flavors to be combined but the end product can provide a huge bang for the buck.Did I mention the endless hours of entertainment provided when you combine the ingredients for this sticky treat and a kitchen full of kids?mimi
@EverydayGourmet my brother has a big watch party every year and there is ALWAYS friend turkey along with some substantial snacks . Pulled pork in jus with my sister's homemade BBQ sauce on the side, homemade rolls for sliders, a TexMex station with stuff for tacos or nachos and burritos. Salads and of course desserts. Over the years as we get older and drink less booze it seems the amt of dishes on the buffets increase . mimi
