Hi Everyone
I made Tiramisu (delicious - and even used Nespresso capsules). I also made a strawberry/berry Trifle with Cointreau liquer, fresh cream/mixed with natural yogurt (out of this world delicious). My husband was nervous that I was taking desserts to his relatives that I had not made before, but they turned out brilliantly and everyone was pleased!.

Congratulations Minis! That Strawberry Trifle sounds lovely.

I made homemade granola nut and fruit bars yesterday and gave them to several friends today. They're wonderful and pretty easy. Got the recipe from a food blog I love called Sweet Pea's Kitchen. She has some wonderful recipes.

Thanks Mizerello, the trifle was my favorite, surprisingly quick and easy too which is always a plus. I'm going to check out Sweet Pea's kitchen later tonight when kids are asleep.

I third the request, Am please post the recipe when you get a chance.

I've never had bourbon cake but being gluten free I did a quick search found a recipe for Banana Bourbon cake. Yum it sounds good, uses almond flour. interesting.

I'm going to try the bourbon cake and have that for dinner - I'll have my salads/vegs another day!!

Made a nice simple marinade for steaks, olive oil, good quality, juice of lemon, rind of lime, add oregano, sage and thyme, salt/pepper - and literally soak the meat in the marinade overnight, I mean absolutely drench the steaks in it. It was the most popular meat at our recent bbq along with homemade salami and prosciutto that in-laws home-made.

BIC - nothing beats a yummy home-made roast especially during winter - all time favourite of mine.

Ooh, theminis, that steak marinade sounds yummy! I tend to do rubs on my steaks but that sounds like something I'd like to try!

I recently found a recipe for shrimp that was a big hit at a party we had a few weeks ago. I got several pounds of gulf shrimp--jumbo ones. Cleaned and de-shelled/tailed them. It's an easy recipe. You put even amounts of flour, corn starch and panko (that I crushed a bit first) together. I added a little salt and garlic powder to the mixture. Rinse your shrimp in water then dip into the flour mixture.

Heat up peanut oil--about 2 inches in the bottom of a heavy pan. It needs to be hot so the test I usually use is to take a wooden handled spatula and dip the wooden handle in the oil. If it bubbles around the wooden handle, it's hot enough.

Then cook the shrimp on one side until golden and flip it over and cook to golden on the other side. I place them on a plate with paper towels to get rid of as much oil as possible. They should be crispy. While they're still hot, drizzle plain lemon juice over them.

I served them with pasta and homemade pesto sauce. Ooh la la! But very fattening. Spent the next week eating salads, fruit and vegis. But well worth it!

Shrimp recipe sounds fantastic, will definitely try that over summer, love shrimp, especially in salads and pastas. The steak comes out so soft and yum, a friend gave me the recipe and its the only marinade I use now, just adds a really nice freshness to a bbq.

Amaretti - Its always a good time for a martini!!

Not waiting for summer, so will be cooking my shrimps later on for dinner tonight, shall let you know how it works out. Confess I had not heard of panko but figured out it was breadcrumbs.

This is an excellent thread, thanks everyone for sharing

OOOOOH Love the picture Razz never had a martini.......

I made this the other day- it turned out really good. i added hot chilies, some chili powder, garlic onion cumin oregano...I forget what else but it was really really good.

Edit to add- i used leftover rotisserie chicken instead of canned. (picked the carcass clean Razz )

Vegetarian Butternut Squash Soup with Apples



Sweet butternut squash is lightly spiced with chipotle seasoning and flavored with crisp fall apples. You could also make this butternut squash soup recipe vegan by using a vegan margarine or olive oil instead of butter. This soup makes quite a lot, so plan on having leftovers!

Ingredients:
2 tbsp butter
2 tbsp olive oil
3 large onions, finely chopped
2 tsp chipotle chili powder
4 pounds butternut squash, peeled and cut into chunks (approx. 6 cups)
2 pounds apples, peeled and cut into chunks, about 5-6 apples
2 cups apple juice
2 cups vegetable broth
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Preparation:
Heat the oil and butter in a large soup pot and cook the onions and chili powder until onions are tender, about 10 minutes.

Add the squash, apples, apple juice and vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, cover and cook over low heat until the apples and squash are very soft, about 30 minutes.

Puree the soup with an immersion blender or in a food processor, return to the pot and adjust the seasonings, thinning with apple juice or water until it is at the desired consistency.

Garnish with fresh diced apples, sour cream and parsley if desired.

do it virtually bake some then share a photo...someone did that to me about 2 months ago, I was offended though it was from a guy...it's like if I knew someone had a drinking problem and sent them a virtual bottle of liquor, I was having a bad day, first a virtual hug then a virtual cookie as if that would take care of my pain......I would have preferred real hug, flowers, card or even a real cookie would have made it more sincere.....but I think this guy with today's technology has lived in cyberworld so long and used same plays on others that he thought it would work on me....NOT!

This isn't a recipe but a real easy way to peel a potato without scraping your hands. I don't normally cook but I'm always looking for an easier way to get things done. This really works.

Thanks for the tip cindigirl! Interesting chemistry with icy water peeling potatoes.

I am lazy, I cook all the time, but prefer potatoes just brushed, peel has all the nutritions...That is my excuse Very Happy

Perhaps some of the more experienced cooks here can answer this question

I've found now that I'm older and my damn hormones and body chemistry are changing that I've become allergic to tomatoes.

Does anyone know a veggie that can substitute for tomatoes in recipes?

For instance, chili uses tomatoes as a base and I've racked my brain but can't figure out a substitute. Same for barbecue sauce. Goes without saying I can't use any products with tomatoes in them.

Tomato paste is often used as a thickener in many Italian based food so I've had to stop eating a lot of Italian food.

It's really frustrating and I've got to be so careful whenever I go out to eat. Even a simple salad becomes a exercise in ordering. Forget soups even some you wouldn't think had tomatoes do in one form or another.

So any suggestions would be appreciated!
