The cooked custard base assures eggs are safe while making a divinely thick and decadent holiday drink.
Call us old-fashioned, but as the weather turns cooler, we crave homemade bread, fresh out of the oven. Of course, we're still modern enough to want to avoid the hassle of rising and kneading, so a dense, rich (but easy to make) zucchini bread is the perfect solution. Like other quick breads, zucchini bread has a few basic components -- zucchini (of course!)
When temperatures climb and the daylight hours stretch long into the evening, you can bet the "lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer" are here. And what better way to mark the most relaxing part of the year than to break out the ice cream maker and learn how to make homemade ice cream? Different than store bought varieties, homemade ice cream tends to have a softer consistency. It's also cheaper per serving, allows you the opportunity to use purer ingredients (and leave out preservatives or other additives) and offers great potential for experimenting with flavors and add-ins.
Had lots of eggnog so far this season? If not, what are you waiting for? Whether you whip up your own recipe at home or make a Christmas Eve run to the nearest grocery store, the holidays just aren't the holidays without a little nog.
Eggnog is a little like fruitcake: Everybody has it on hand but does anybody really want to partake of either of these two laugh-line Christmas classics? There's just something so ... so ...
You scream, I scream -- wait a sec ... why is everyone screaming? That's not going to get us any closer to a cold creamy bowl of homemade ice cream.
The holidays are a golden ticket to indulge a little, so don't waste your Christmas dessert hour on ho-hum sweets. We like Christmas cookies as much as the next person, but who wouldn't bypass a sugar cookie for a plate of rich, gooey Black Forest trifle? With all of the dazzle and sparkle of the season, you have to make a little magic in the kitchen to get noticed.
Let's talk about Jell-O, shall we? Technically, we're talking about gelatin, because Jell-O is a brand name. And it's taken a bit of a hit in recent years, with mostly kitsch appeal among the hipster foodie crowd (while remaining a popular delivery system for grain-alcohol shots among frat boys and their pals, which does not help matters).
Candied apples aren't old fashioned, they're in fashion! Indeed, candied apples are making a comeback for grown-ups and kids alike, and they can be as traditional, sophisticated or wild as the occasion merits. For a kids' Halloween party, maybe you want to try the "shrunken heads" or the double-dip chocolate-and-caramel coating; for a dinner party (or an office Halloween party), go with the dark chocolate, the toffee, or the cinnamon candy coating (you can serve them on the stick, or cut them into wedges so guests can try different kinds).
Enjoy homemade frozen treats including ice cream, gelato, sorbets, and more with these easy recipes. Bonus: Some don't even require an ice cream machine!
Yeah, we keep hearing how popular frozen ice pops are this summer. And you'd pretty much have to be crazy to turn down a Dairy Queen Blizzard, an orange creamsicle, or a good old-fashioned ice cream sandwich when the temps start soaring. But a root beer float that's been spiked with alcohol?
Lemons might have a "sour" reputation, but they're a key ingredient for many sweet recipes. Maybe it's because of their tart flavor; for those of us without a hardcore sweet-tooth, lemon desserts are the perfect treat. Their citrusy tang is equally delicious in cakes, tarts, sorbets and -- of course -- lemon bars.
