Hot Buttered Rum Cookies

Thursday, December 29th, 2005

Here’s a great extra credit assignment for kitchen geeks… making baked goods out of unsuspecting base ingredients. I can’t remember my inspiration, most likely just contemplation of rummy goodness… adding flour to hot buttered rum mix equals great cookies! Hot Buttered Rum Cookies With a mixer combine: 1/3 cup hot buttered rum batter 1/3 cup [...]

Thom’s Hot Buttered Rum

Tuesday, December 27th, 2005

One more drink to add to the list of holiday liquid ambrosia: Thom’s amazingly good, warming tonic to heal that which ails you, aka Hot Buttered Rum. This isn’t that premade Tom and Jerry’s Batter… I know this Thom! Hot Buttered Rum is his Christmas specialty, a great drink to add to Thom’s repertoire. Warning, [...]

Spirited COoking- EggNog

Thursday, December 22nd, 2005

My Mom is a large player in influencing the favorites of my tastebuds. Eggnog is a big cherished taste bud memory in my child hood flavor storage. Mom would whip up a batch of the fluffy stuff over the stove and I would sneak a sip of it while still warm. As good as that [...]

Spirited Cooking- Framboise Lambic Brownies

Monday, December 19th, 2005

I‘ve been brewing a very special relationship with Framboise Lambic this winter season. It’s become a drinkable dessert of choice. One that when consumed in 2 pints, allows one to forget about the stresses of the day. Us cheap dates have it easy this way! Lambic is a surprising class of beer. It is made [...]

Award Winning X-rated Cupcakes

Monday, October 24th, 2005

My weekend trip to Portland was fantastic! And the cupcakes have a new descriptor to add in their title, as they won the coconut category. We rode up quickly Saturday morning with a stop in Albany to buy new riding gear (Happy Birthday to me!) from Mr. Ed’s Moto. The new jacket and pants made [...]

Have you ever noticed how things taken with a flash just look… dirtier? I still can’t believe my computer now has a recipe folder labeled pussy… I’m on my way out for a trip up to Portland tomorrow morning and am burning the midnight oil on this entry. Sweets and I are heading to a [...]

Vegan Gussied Up Chocolate Mousse Kisses

Thursday, October 6th, 2005

For the sweet finishing touch to our vegan meal, I decided to play up some chocolate tofu mousse. In cute tiny cordial glasses, I piped in a tower of tofu mousse made up with raspberry liquor and then drowned each tower with a flavorful moat. Raspberry Cordial with Chocolate Mousse Kiss The key to this [...]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Tofu Ice Cream

Thursday, September 22nd, 2005

I seem to work in progressions or themes in my cooking. No sooner did I taste the Chubby Hubby Tofu Mousse, did I realize I wanted to test out tofu in its ice cream making abilities. The chocolate peanut butter mousse, Chubby Hubby Goodness, is a variation on a ubiquitous tofu mousse recipe that is [...]

Chubby Hubby Mousse

Sunday, September 18th, 2005

I just read of a great version of the infamous tofu mousse in the latest Vegetarian Times. Unfortunately their website doesn’t seem to list the recipe (doh!), and their search engine is rather lame. However it was a pretty easy recipe to remember. I haven’t made it up yet- but plan on indulging myself with [...]

Garlic Hazelnut Caramel Corn

Saturday, August 27th, 2005

I was recently sharing with fellow foodies my discovery on how to roast garlic on the stove top. Filling a pan with peeled whole garlic cloves which are covered with olive oil and simmered yields two amazing products- the roasted garlic and wonderful garlic oil. Its a fun process to watch as the garlic turns [...]
