Here's a tried-and-true and totally easy dessert. I made it tonight, and it was a hit, like it usually is. It's not like the apple crisp recipes you find in current cookbooks - they all try to be so "healthy" and use oats and not enough sugar. My recipe says - screw oats! Gimme sugar! I don't eat dessert for the health benefits and I hope you don't either. :)
4 1/2 cups of peeled and sliced apples (I like gala or pink lady, but any semi-sweet apple will work) 1/4 cup water 3/4 cup unbleached white flour 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp salt 3/4 cup sugar 1/3 cup margarine
- Heat oven to 400. - Grease an 8" square pan and spread apples in the pan. - Sprinkle apples with the water and set the pan aside. - In a separate bowl, mix everything else other than the margarine. - Once combined, use a pastry blender, fork, or whatever you have to mash in the margarine and make the dry mix into a big bowl of sugar-cinnamon-crumbs. - Sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the top of the apples, using all of the mix. - Bake 35-40 minutes or until no longer runny.
The following recipe is from a great little book I've just discovered, The art of tofu, by Akasha Richmond. It has lots of yummy entrees and things - but of course I went straight for the deserts. I like this recipe because it does not require an egg substitute (like enerG). This gingerbread recipe is very simple and rewarding recipe. Prep doesn't take long and you end up with a nice treat afterwards. This "gingerbread" is very similar in consistency to a brownie - so its not at all like a cookie or a gingerbread house. ;)
Does anyone know how to make the citrus-flavored rice they serve at Chili's or Mexican resturants? I'm cooking a pot of brown rice right now, and I'm guessing just drizzle it with lime/lemon juice, maybe a little oj, and pepper. I'm pretty lost on what spices to use... I checked the memories and vegweb.com but to no avail.
My mom just bought me a ton of super fresh, sweet mejole dates and I'm not sure what to do with them. I usually just cut up one or two dates and put them in my oatmeal, but now I'm in possession of about a pound of them! I'm open to any and all recipes.
Ok, so I'm looking for some new fun recipes so I thought I would ask:
What is the recipe for your absolute FAVORITE dish to make? You know, that one recipe you just cannot live without and that I shouldn't live without either. I'm really looking for main dishes and easy snacks but if you have a to-die-for dessert feel free to share it too :)
