My First Recipe Ever
What’s the first recipe I’ve made? Answering that question brings me back to way back in time, way back when I was only nine years old.
Garlic Mushroom Gnocchi
Merry belated Christmas! Christmas baking is done for this year, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves – New Year’s is just a few days away, and more cooking must be done. An amazingly cheap and fast dinner that the whole family can enjoy is Gnocchi, in all of it’s related recipes.
This particular Garlic Mushroom Gnocchi is extremely time-and-cost efficient, healthy, and full of flavor. Gnocchi takes only 3 minutes to boil, and don’t cook it too long otherwise it will get chewy and harder to consume.
Christmas Cookies – Whole Wheat
’tis the season for enriched bleached flour, refined white sugars, and other desserts!
Why not try making sugar cookies with whole wheat?
Ever tried to make biscuits and they just come out of the oven like dry pieces of cardboard? Or they carry a taste reminiscent of baking soda?
Beer Bread is one of the quickest bread recipes out there, with a distinct flavor and an awesome moist texture.
Beer has rising agent in it already, but most store-bought beer will not have enough of it to make the bread rise; for this, most beer bread recipes include baking powder, which reacts with the beer to lets the bread rise and develop air pockets. Because of this process, Beer Bread is certainly a ‘quick bread’ – the recipe consists of mixing the dry ingredients together, then mixing in the melted butter & beer, then baking right away. There are no rising times or kneading.
Dutch Apple Pie
Dutch Apple Pie combines the best of both worlds: the even slices and crust of the Apple Pie and the delicious crumb topping of the Apple Crisp.
Many, including me, prefer making apple crisp when they are in a rush – this can be solved by purchasing frozen pie crusts and thawing them ahead of time. However, some also make apple crisp for the sole reason of that sought-after golden crunch: the brown sugar and oats Crumb Topping that layers Apple Crisp and probably gives both of its names; the American name “Apple Crisp” and the British “Apple Crumble.”
Homemade BBQ Sauce
This BBQ Sauce has a fringe of spicy tang and a balancing sweetness. Caramelized onions are blended into the mix, giving the sauce a bit of a smoky taste.
There’s not right or wrong when it comes to adjusting ingredients; what you add more or less of depends on your desired end result for different tastes.
Don’t be afraid to use the little bit of hot sauce listed in the ingredients; it is an addition that brings more to the flavor but remains mild enough for anyone, being a very small amount.
A delicious dessert (especially with ice cream), this apple crisp is loaded with apples and topped with an irresistible mixture of sugar, butter, and oats.
The types of apples you use are up to you, and each produces a slightly different variance in flavor.
