15 Best Tequilas Of 2020

Posted in Featured

While margaritas are objectively delicious, tequila can be used for other mixed cocktails and enjoyed neat or on the rocks. But, first things first, we need to go through a little background behind the three main types of tequila: blanco, reposado, and añejo. The difference is all in the aging process. As the name suggests, blanco tequila is the clearest in color and goes well in mixed drinks or as a complement to Mexican dishes. This longer aging process gives it more complex flavors that can be better appreciated when sipped alone rather than mixed into a cocktail.
Banana Banana Bread

Banana Banana Bread

Thumb Up Helpful (3983)Rating: 4 stars This banana bread was very moist, despite the fact that I didn't have enough bananas (I compensated for the remaining quantity with some applesauce). I altered the recipe to make it more healthy--used 1 1/2 c. flour + 1/2 c. whole wheat pastry flour; 1/4 c. butter + 1/4 c. plain applesauce; 1/2 c. brown sugar; added 1 tsp. I'm not a big fan of banana bread, but we had three or four bananas wasting away in the pantry so I decided to give this bread a shot. I wasn't blown away by it, but then again I don't really like banana bread (prefer pumpkin bread, mmmmm!!!!!!! ), but my mom said it was the best banana bread she's ever had and took some with her to work and everyone loved it!

In particular, there were a couple of fancy-pants biscuit tea sets that really blew our minds. We loved Marc’s tea and toast with its brightly coloured tea cup and toast rack. We also love Linda’s delicate Amsterdam high tea set. Channel 4Although, I’m not sure the ‘high’ tea she had in The ‘Dam is the same as the ‘high’ teas other tourists get stuck into. Firstly, a cookie stamp with your preferred pattern is a great way of getting a sweet print on your biscuits.

In the pressure cooker, heat the butter over medium-high heat, being careful not to let it brown. Sauté the pieces of rooster and turn them frequently to brown them evenly, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, add the bouquet garni and close the pressure cooker. While the rooster is cooking, brown the lardons in a large pan, about 5 minutes. When they nicely browned, add the button mushrooms and sauté for 5 minutes over high heat.

Unfortunately, Creole cream cheese isn’t the kind of thing you can go out and buy at every grocery store these days. “Even just outside New Orleans, people don’t know what Creole cream cheese is,” she says. She says “New Orleanians of a certain age” will remember regular Creole cream cheese deliveries courtesy of the milkman. But sometime in the 1980s and ‘90s, “conglomerate dairies started to overtake local farms.” Sightings of Creole cream cheese became rare. Creole cream cheese, which had once been a staple product of his family’s business, just might be the way to bring it back from the brink.

Forget Mini Kitchen Torches, a Full-Size Torch Is So Much Better

Forget Mini Kitchen Torches, a Full-Size Torch Is So Much Better

Posted in Featured

In my cooking life—both as a professional chef and as a home cook—I have frequently used a small kitchen torch. For real flaming help in the kitchen, though, I much prefer a full-size blowtorch. But it's also good for many, many other tasks that a cute little kitchen torch can't really accomplish. A full sized torch makes quicker work of those fancy sugar crusts—as well as toasted meringues. Wave the torch's flame back and forth against the surface of the pepper—you may have to play with distance a bit depending on the output of the torch you're using.

Frangipane Makes the Most of Peak Produce—All Year Long

There may be no better way than with a base of nutty frangipane. Frangipane is a simple custard, made in a food processor from nuts, butter, sugar, and eggs. Raw frangipane is the exact right consistency for nestling pieces of fruit pressed in ever so slightly so that they’re secured to the base. As it cooks, the frangipane puffs up around and under the fruit, forming the perfect little pillow to display your favorite produce. Photo & Prop Styling by Joseph De LeoWhat makes frangipane an ideal dessert is its versatility.

But spaghetti squash…well, it’s not like other squash. Step aside twice-baked potatoes, twice-baked spaghetti squash is in town. Photo by Chelsea Kyle, Prop Styling by Alex Brannian, Food Styling by Anna StockwellHow to Cook Spaghetti SquashOnce the squash is partially cooked and halved, as indicated above, line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment. Plus, in the goal of getting spaghetti squash to behave like noodles, you aren’t looking to get much browning on its surface (a little bit of browning is fine). Sprinkle about ¼ teaspoon salt across the cut surface of each half (if you have a very large squash, you might want a little more; for a small squash, a little less).

We get it, you got mesmerized by how half-and-half swirls into your iced coffee. It's a good rule of thumb to use if you're going rogue and making your own order so you don't overdo it. It's a pro move: Ask for a tall in a grande cup or a grande in a venti. If you want a grande size coffee, order it but ask for it in a venti-size cup. Otherwise, they'd leave you space for all that in your grande cup and you'll get shorted a few ounces.
