Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers

Today’s Menu: Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Cloudy and 54 degrees out today, rain moving in overnight. Went to Walmart for a few items and to finish off my Christmas Shopping for the year. Back home I got the rake, leaf blower, and cart out and raked the front and side yard. Spent the rest of the day watching NFL Football. For Dinner tonight I prepared a package of Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers.

So I wanted something easy to prepare but I still wanted a hot good meal. So since I’m always in the mood for some Skyline 3 Way – Chili, Spaghetti, Cheese w/ Side of Oyster Crackers that’s what we had tonight. Nothing says comfort food more than a Skyline 3 Way! As…

Turkey Liver with Creamy Giblet BBQ Sauce | Overindulgence Blog

Turkey Liver with Creamy Giblet BBQ Sauce – Overindulgence Blog

I’m agreeing with anyone who might have this to say about this, that this isn’t the prettiest looking dish. You might have to cover it up in chopped green salad maybe to hide it to say it’s beautiful. But I’m aware of too many poultry liver and gizzard lovers to pass up the chance to re-blog this recipe. And that is my entire reason in doing it.

Hazelnuts and Dried Cranberries Oatmeal Cookies

Tasty Eats

Oatmeal cookies are a favorite of mine: quick and easy to make, they can have a chewy or crispy texture, and can include many additions, such as dried fruits, chocolate chips, nuts and more.
When I was asked to develop a gluten-free version of these tasty cookies, I’ve decided not to include any unknown flour substitute mixes, and instead, experiment with an “all oats” version.

Lemon Oatmeal Cookies with Dried Apricots and Pecans

Tasty Eats

The following tasty cookies are another version of my earlier all-oats gluten-free cookies (find the recipe HERE).
This time, I decided to rely even more on both oats flour and rolled oats, instead of using nut meal in the dough. I chose to add a lemony flavor to the cookies, which worked well with the other additions, of chopped pecans and dried apricots.
The cookies can be baked to a chewy texture, or a bit longer, for crispier ones. Either way, they will delight anyone who loves oatmeal cookies and/or lemon cookies. The cookies’ texture is light and crumbly, and the fact that they are gluten-free, is an added bonus.
Another layer of flavor and aroma can be obtained by drizzling lemon icing and lemon zest on top. Try them and enjoy.

Prep time: 10 minutes
Chilling time: 2 hours

Züri Leckerli

artandkitchen

SONY DSC

Läckerli (also called Basler Leckerli or Läggerli) are traditional spiced famous biscuit originating from Basel, Switzerland and are made with honey, hazelnuts, candied peel, spices, and Kirsch and then topped with a sugar glaze.

The name “Leckeli” came from the old German “leckon” (English: leak), as these cookies are really delicious.

Züri Leckerli or Zürcher Leckerli however are completely different as they consist of baked almond paste (marzipan) and flavored with chocolate, orange, cinnamon, hazelnut, vanilla and sandalwood.

I substituted the sandalwood powder with hibiscus flower powder as this is what I had on hand and the reddish color would fit with in the set.

The dried hibiscus flower were intended for teas: I used the mortar to reduce them into fine powder.

For the pattern I used a Springerle hand carved maple wood rolling pin.

You need:

Basic recipe:

  • 600 g almonds, peeled finely grounded
  • 500 g powdered sugar

Homemade Basler Leckerli – Swiss Gingerbread from Basel

artandkitchen

This year I did not prepare Christmas cookies, but know I really wished to prepare something special, something from my town (Basel, Switzerland) where it is popular in bakeries and even grocery stores.

I’ve already prepared Leckerli, or better in Swiss German “Läckerli” or “Läggerli”, several times, but it was long time ago as I prepared them. Once I also used this recipe to build a cute gingerbread house.

This year I’ve revised my old recipe and I’ve decided to propose these cookies into small bites for longer pleasure.  I love to take one, let turn soft in the mouth and then melt!

These cookies are dense, quite dry and wonderfully flavored with honey (I used the honey of our bees!), spices, citrus and almonds. They are something like “hard gingerbread” combined with candied fruits; no candied ginger is included in this traditional recipe. You are free to add some…

Quick Chicken in Pastry

Mouth Brothels

When pulling a prepared pie crust out of the freezer for a pie, I found it was broken in half. While I could have thawed it and pressed it back together, I decided to hold on to it for a quick dinner instead. After a day of working in the yard (who knew the trees had so many leaves in them!), I wanted something uncomplicated but delicious.

You can coat the chicken in most any pesto sauce you like – I had a small jar (6.5 ounce) of A.G. Ferrari sun-dried tomato pesto that I used but feel free to use a more traditional basil pesto or even artichoke pesto. What you are looking for is a good flavored sauce that will go well with chicken.

I parboiled a sliced potato while the oven was heating, then drained them and tossed them with olive oil and rosemary salt and put…

Cheesy Chicken Calzone

Mouth Brothels

I had been watching soccer all day Sunday (and don’t get me started on FIFA scheduling men’s final games on the day of the Women’s World Cup Final – here’s an article on why it is insulting. Here is another.) so I needed something I could eat in front of the TV. I decided a  calzone (basically a pocket pizza) was the way to go.

The entire dough recipe will make 4 good sized calzones. I divided the dough in half so I could have one calzone to eat, one for dinner later in the week and made pretzels with the rest.

I started on Saturday with an easy pizza dough in my new-to-me bread maker:

I had a chicken breast thawed that I decided to use instead of more traditional sausage and pepperoni. After a quick browning of the chicken, I made a basic marinara sauce in the same…

Boursin and Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Mouth Brothels

I had a package of Boursin Gournay Cheese that I found in the back of the fridge and boneless chicken breasts were on sale, so we had basically all we needed for a chicken dinner. Toss in half the package of portobello mushrooms and we upped the deliciousness factor by twelve.

I used the Garlic and Herbs style of Boursin but every kind they have would work in this dish. If you don’t have Boursin, you can approximate your own by whipping half a package of cream cheese and mixing in garlic and herbs and a little salt.

This is a two person dish but can be scaled up for a larger dinner.

Meatloaf Stuffed Mushrooms

Mouth Brothels

I found a pack of mushrooms on sale – they were larger than usual and had pretty deep caps so I knew they’d be good for stuffing. I’d also had a craving for meatloaf and decided to put it all together. I started with my basic meatloaf recipe, then stuffed the mushrooms and molded the remaining filling into a loaf.

If you’re making this for a party, use more than a single pack of mushrooms. You’ll get a smaller meatloaf but the stuffed mushrooms are worth the sacrifice.

I was out of diced tomatoes but I had a blister pack of cherry tomatoes and, after a spin in a food processor, they were perfect in the dish.

You can add the cheese after 30 minutes for a prettier presentation but I like it when it is a little crunchy, so I put it on before sliding the baking tray in…
