A few days ago I tried to make my first pickled anything, which were radishes because I grew far too many of them. I tried this easy recipe from Epicurious and while they were ok, they were too sweet, and not salty and sour enough for me. Does anyone have a fool-proof recipe they like for salty sour pickled stuff? Am I using the wrong kind of vinegar? I was thinking next time I'd omit the sugar altogether, increase the salt, and add some herbs (dill and bay, maybe)? Please & Thank You!
Hey everyone! In the end of July I'm staying with some friends and I want to make them dinners while I'm there. However - she is lactose free, soy free, and can't have egg yolks. I'd like to make stuffed shells, but I can't find a good substitution for 'ricotta', any ideas for that?
Also - any general ideas for dinners I can make? Fish isn't well liked by them either, and I don't eat beef.
Just imagine one ginormous, cake-size chocolate candy! This is precisely what this cake is - chocolate layers, chocolate filling, home-made chocolate truffles for decorations. The biggest challenge is to find good quality chocolate. I used to use President's Choice chocolate chips before, but does not seem like they contain any cocoa powder or cocoa butter anymore. Last time I tried it - it tasted like caramel and looked like caramel while being melted. Had to toss the entire thing away and go find real chocolate....
One of my "lazy" dishes for busy days. I am cooking it in different variations depending on the contents of the fridge. Original recipe calls for mushrooms. Ooops, had non of those! But here is the original recipe.
