Crockpot Grinders

Crockpot Grinders

one round loaf Artisan Italian Bread
18 slices provolone
18 slices Mortadella
18 slices sweet or hot Capicola
18 slices Genoa Salami
sweet pepper rings
thin onion slices
olive oil
oregano and basil
Large 6 quart oval crock pot
Slice bread 13 times, almost all the way through but leaving 1/2 inch space at the bottom. Layer three slices of cheese and top with 3 slices each of Mortadella, Capicola, and Salami. Top with pepper rings and onions. Sprinkle with Italian Seasonings and repeat 5 times. Fold each bundle in half and tuck down between every other slice of bread to create 6 sandwiches. The sandwich may have “arched” its back, gently push down and wrap tightly in one then a second piece of heavy foil. Place in crockpot on top of a small aluminum foil pan or balls of foil, do not touch bottom of pan. Pour in 1/4 cup of water (I never like to have a “dry” crockpot, it just seemed to make sense to me to have a little water in there), it does nothing for the sandwich since it is wrapped up so tightly in foil. Cover and cook on low for 2-4 hours. To serve cut each sandwich apart, drizzle the insides lightly with olive oil, and enjoy. Makes six sandwiches with the center two being quite generous in size.
Note- you may not need all the meat and cheese as the sandwiches on the ends are a bit smaller and will not hold as much.

Christmas Tree Treats

I love cookie cutters but they have many more uses other than cutting out cookies. I have used mini cutters to cut out cheese pieces, fruit and so many other things. Today I wanted to share these crispy treats cut in christmas trees. 

6 cups Rice Krispies cereal
3 tablespoons butter
10 oz. marshmallows
1 teaspoon vanilla
Green food coloring
Random sprinkles and candies

On low heat and in a large and deep sauce pan, melt the butter. Add marshmallows to melted butter, stir frequently to keep marshmallows from burning until mostly melted. Add green food coloring until desired color is reached. Once marshmallows are completely melted, remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Stir in the Rice Krispies.
 Spread treats on a buttered pan or piece of wax paper and spread out until about 1/2 inch thick.
 Using a cookie cutter or knife, cut out tree shapes.
 Decorate with sprinkles or cinnamon candies.

Cookies with Caramel and Nuts oh my

Cashew-Caramel Cookies(Adapted from M.S. Cookies)

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups roasted, salted cashews
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon canola oil
1 stick unsalted butter, softened - 8 tablespoons
3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
24 cubes soft caramel candy
1/4 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl, sift flour and salt together. Coarsely chop 1 cup cashews and set aside. Process remaining 1 1/2 cups cashews in a food processor until finely chopped. Gradually pour oil into the feed tube. Process until mixture is creamy, about 2 minutes.

Put cashew mixture, butter, and sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment; mix on medium speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Mix in egg and vanilla. Reduce speed to low; gradually add flour mixture. Mix in reserved chopped cashews.

Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Place on parchment covered baking sheets about 2" apart. Bake 6 minutes; gently flatten with a 1 cup measuring cup. I tried using a spatula but it was too big - a metal cup worked much better. If they begin to stick when you are pressing down, make sure to wipe the bottom before moving to the next cookie. Bake until bottoms are just golden, 6 to 7 minutes more. Let cool completely on sheets on wire racks.

Melt caramels with cream in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring. Let cool. Using a spoon, drizzle caramel over cookies; let set. The caramel will not get hard so you can't stack these. Store them in single layers for the best result.

Corn Fritters

December is a perfect time to make up a batch of fritters. In the U.S. fritters are small cakes made with a primary ingredient that is mixed with an egg and milk batter and either pan fried or deep fried. Flour, cornmeal or a mixture of the two are used to bind the batter. Corn fritters are often made with canned corn and are generally deep fried.

I know that for some of you, the corn season has probably been over for a month or two. But for those of you who are lucky and still can find sweet corn in your grocery stores… make these now! Seriously. Growing up in Southeast Asia, I have had a secret adoration toward fritters for as long as I can remember. It seemed to me that everything could be turned into fritters, from fruit to veggies. This recipe is very similar to the type of corn fritters that I grew up eating, except the addition of cheese (which I don’t mind in this recipe). I didn’t have any cilantro on hand (original recipe called for it), so I chopped up the basil leaves and mixed them into the batter (instead of just sprinkling them on top, again like the original recipe called for). They browned up nice and golden, crispy, sweet and delicious. Make sure that you sprinkle some salt at the end, the saltiness added a great flavor contrast with the sweetness from the corn. They were so addictive that we gobbled up two batches in one day. The final caution that I must mention was the popping of the corn kernels during frying, make sure that you wear closed-toed shoes and have a lid or a spatter guard ready to cover your frying pan. I actually wore my safety glasses when frying these :) Nerd right? But oh, they were so good. So worth it.

4 ears of corns, slice the kernels
1/4 cup of all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp corn starch
1 organic egg, beaten
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 tsp sea salt, and more for sprinkling
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1/4 cup of canola oil for frying
~10 large basil leaves, torn up

Mix all ingredients together until well combined in a bowl. Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan set on a medium to high heat. Using 1/4-cup of measuring cup, spoon the mixture into the frying pan in batches. Fry each fritter on each side for around 2 minutes or until they turn a nice dark brown, do not flip before the patty is browned or it will fall apart.
Preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Drain the fritters on paper towel and keep warm in the oven (on an oven safe plate) while you fry the remainder of the mixture.
Yield: 8 fritters

Cheerios Christmas Tree

6 cups Honey Nut Cheerios® cereal
6 tablespoons butter or margarine
4 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
Green food color
Red cinnamon candies or sliced gumdrops

Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper. Pour the cereal into a 4-quart bowl. Set the bowl aside.
Place the butter and marshmallows in a 3-quart saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth. Remove the saucepan from the heat.
Stir in the food color until the mixture is evenly colored. Pour the marshmallow mixture over the cereal and stir until the cereal is evenly coated. Lightly spray your hands with cooking spray. For each tree, shape about 1/4 cup of the cereal mixture into a Christmas tree shape on the cookie sheet. Press the candies into the trees to decorate. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. Store the trees in a loosely covered container.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Balls

3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

World Aids Day //// Day with(out) Art

Day without Art is a movement that was started on December 1 1989. It is a day to take a stand and morn those lost to AIDS. We have learned a lot about AIDS since that time as we have learned that it can touch everyone, inspire positive actions and watched as individuals came together.

The first Day Without Art shut down museums and the staff that would have worked gave the time as volunteers at AIDS services or sponsoring special exhibitions of work about AIDS. Since the first day the movement has grown and now includes museums, galleries, art centers, AID service organizations, libraries, high schools and colleges take part. 

This day later changed to Day With(out) Art and highlights the proactive programming of art projects created by artist living with HIV/AIDS

Red apple trees will bear fruit after the fourth or fifth year. The trees normally live around 200 years so you can expect to get at least 150 years of good red apples from the same tree.

Pie for the Day Cranberry Cream Pie Recipe

This picture helped me recall the days as a teen working the community socials. I would work with my older sister but would talk double the amount of time. I really loved helping out. One of my all time favorite things to do was to work the pie tables. Sitting pies out on the table was one of the duties of the job. The other was smiling, greeting and helping the individuals that came by.

This holiday season why not try a cranberry cream pie. It would be a welcome guest to any holiday table.

9-inch unbaked pie crust
About 3 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
1-1/4 cups sugar
1-1/4 tablespoon flour
Dash of salt
3 eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Coarsely chop cranberries, in a food processor or by hand. Spread cranberries evenly in unbaked pie crust.
Mix sugar, flour, and salt in a small bowl. Beat eggs and add to flour mixture. Mix well and pour over the cranberries in the pie crust.
Bake at 350 about 45-50 minutes until set. Cool before serving.

—3 cups of cranberries is about one 12-ounce bag of fresh cranberries.
—To chop cranberries in a food processor, just pulse it a few times.

Christmas Fudge

An extra half block (100g/4 oz) or so of chocolate to melt on top
A spoonful of liqueur (if you like) Creme De Fromboise (or any raspberry flavoured liqueur), kirsch, even a little of something orange flavoured would be nice too – like Cointreau.
Icing Sugar to decorate.
200g (7 oz) Dark Chocolate, Broken (I like the Nestle Plaistowe 70% Cooking Chocolate)
110g (4 1/2 oz) Unsalted Butter, Cubed
A good handful or so of fresh or frozen raspberries (best is thawed first)

You will also need: A small baking pan (or a tupperwear container) – I used a 15cm x 15 cm (6″x6″) one here, grease proof (baking) paper, a small saucepan, a wooden spoon, a mixing bowl,
Measure out ingredients. Line baking pan with grease-proof (baking) paper.
Bring about 1 1/2 cups of water (1″ depth of water or so) to boil in the saucepan and let it simmer at a low temperature.
Place the broken chocolate in a bowl over the saucepan. I like to prop the bowl up on a spoon (like pictured) so steam can escape easily from the side. (You could melt this is the microwave too of course).
Stir chocolate with a wooden spoon until it has melted.
Add the butter and keep stirring until that has melted too.
Take the bowl off the heat (use oven mits as bowl can get hot!) and stir in raspberries. It’s nice if some remain whole while some break apart so you get a mix of both. Add some liqueur at this stage too it you like.
Pour mixture into baking pan. Cover, and let it set for a few hours or overnight.
Once it’s set it’s ready! If you like though you can melt some extra chocolate to pour on top. Let it set again and cut with a sharp knife. 
Serve with a dust of icing sugar and good Christmas cheer. This fudge does melt in warmer temperatures so make sure to store in fridge.

Butternut Squash Pudding

Butternut Squash also sometimes referred to as butternut pumpkin or butterscotch squash depending on location. This type of winter squash grows on a vine and has a sweet nutty taste that is similar to that of a pumpkin. The tan yellow skin and orange fleshy pulp with a compartment of seeds in the bottom. As the fruit ripens the flesh will become more and more orange and the taste sweeter and richer. This type of squash is great source of fiber, vitamin C, manganese, potassium, vitamin A and E.

Butternut squash is a fruit but can be cooked as you would a vegetable. Via process of roasting, toasting, puree for soups or mashed and used in casseroles, breads and muffins.

The recipe that we will make today is for butternut squash pudding. My grandmothers loved the delicious recipe and made it around the many reunions and holidays. In the days of my childhood I can remember no large delis like they have today and instead the family bakers and cooks took pride in showing off their latest dish.

3 T butter
3 T flour
1 shallot, very finely chopped
2 clove of garlic, roasted and smushed (see below)
pinch of thyme
pinch of sage
1 1/4 cups milk
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon, well chopped
1/2 cup goat’s cheese, crumbled.
3 eggs – separated
pinch of cream of tartar
1 cup roasted butternut squash purée. (Cut the squash in half, scoop out the seeds. Place it face down on a tray, with a few garlic cloves set in the spaces where the seeds were. Roast at 450 for 40 minutes or more, until the outside is starting to brown and it collapses when you press on it with a knife. Let it cool, and then peel the skins off. Put it into a processor with the garlic and whirl it up. This recipe uses a cup, but you can use the rest in soup, or in Butternut-beer-pies, which I’ll tell you about in a little while…)
salt and plenty of pepper.
Warm the butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. When it’s bubbling and just starting to brown, add the flour, and whisk well. Cook it through for a few minutes.
Add the shallot and herbs, and continue cooking till everything looks dry and like it’s starting to brown.
Pour in the milk. Whisk well, and stir for a few minutes till it’s thick and smooth. Take it off the heat and very carefully whisk in the egg yolks. You don’t want them to cook and curdle. I’m a coward about cooking egg yolks in this type of dish, so I returned it to the hot burner, but left the burner off, and cooked it a few minutes more. When it’s nice and thick and cooked through, take it off the heat and scrape it into a large bowl. Stir in the squash, the goat cheese and the tarragon. Don’t worry about getting it perfectly smooth. Add salt and pepper.
Whisk the egg whites till they’re quite stiff but not dry. If you have cream of tartar, whisk in a pinch of that, it will speed the process.
Very very carefully, fold the egg whites into the squash mixture.
Pour into a casserole dish or wide flat bowl that’s been greased and floured.
Bake at 400 degrees (preheated) for about 1/2 an hour, till it’s puffed and brown and crispy on top.
