2 1/2 C pecans

1/2 C butter (I use salted)

1 C brown sugar

1/2 C light corn syrup

7 ounces sweetened condensed milk (1/2 of a 14 ounce can)

1/2 t vanilla

1 (12 ounce) package milk chocolate chips

1/2 t shortening (I use butter flavored Crisco)


Toss 2 1/2 cups of pecans into a large skillet. Toast them over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until they have darkened just a bit and smell fragrant and wonderful. Should only take a few minutes

Find yourself 2 large cookie sheets. Line them with parchment paper and spray it with cooking spray. Arrange your pecans into clusters, three to a group works well. You want to leave some space (about an inch) between each cluster.

Make your caramel (full tutorial with pictures found here). Place 1/2 C butter into a medium-sized sauce pan. Melt it over medium high heat. Add 1 C brown sugar, 1/2 C light corn syrup and 7 ounces sweetened condensed milk to the pan. Increase the heat just a bit and stir it continually. Cook and stir until it reaches 235-240 degrees. I generally remove it from the heat when it reaches about 234 degrees. It will continue to rise in temperature just a bit even without the direct heat, making the caramel just the right texture.

Stir in 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.

Carefully drizzle about 1 1/2 teaspoons of caramel over each nut cluster. You’ll want to work quickly, as the caramel will begin to set up. Be sure there is caramel touching all of the nuts in your cluster. The caramel works like glue, sticking the nuts together.

In a microwave safe bowl pour 12 ounces of milk chocolate chips. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds at a time, stirring after each cooking interval.

Add 1/2 teaspoon of shortening to the melted chocolate. Allow it to sit for a minute or two (so it can melt and make the chocolate chips more spreadable). Stir it all together.

Spoon about 1 1/2 teaspoons of melted chocolate over the top of the caramel and nuts. Swirl it around along the top making a pretty swoop with your spoon.

Allow the chocolate to set up. Once it has hardened and cooled you can serve them immediately, or transfer them to an air tight container.

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 lb chicken legs about 3-4 large chicken legs

2 tablespoons olive oil

10 oz mushrooms each sliced in half

3 garlic cloves minced

1 tablespoon olive oil if needed1 cup chicken stock

In a small bowl, combine the flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper.   On a large plate, dredge chicken legs in this seasoned flour mixture

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat.

Add chicken legs skin side down and brown for about 4 minutes until the skin turns a nice golden color.

Flip chicken legs over to the other side and brown the other side for about 3 minutes.

Remove browned chicken legs and set them aside. Also, remove those parts of olive oil that got too dark from browning the chicken with flour mixture.

To the same, now empty skillet, add mushrooms (sliced in half) and minced garlic, add an extra tablespoon of olive oil (if needed) and saute them together on medium heat for 2 minutes.

Add chicken stock to the skillet, scraping up the browned bits at the bottom of the pan.  Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt and stir.

Place chicken legs back in the pan.

Bring the chicken stock to boil, cover, and reduce heat to simmer on low-medium.

Simmer chicken legs for 25-30 minutes, until the chicken is completely cooked through and the juices run clear when chicken is cut in the middle.

Remove the cooked chicken legs to a plate and keep warm.

Turn the heat under the skillet to medium-high, and simmer the mushroom sauce for about 4 minutes until it is reduced by about a third.

Stir in the 1/2 cup heavy cream into the mushroom sauce and simmer for another 2 minutes on low-medium heat, constantly stirring and scraping from the bottom of the skillet, until the sauce gets thicker.

Add chicken legs back to the skillet to warm them up.

  • 1 and 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 and 1/2 cups fresh pineapple chunks
  • 2 and 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 and 1/2 cups milk + 1 Tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. Place the butter in a 9×13 glass baking pan. Place pan in the oven to melt it. Once melted, sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the melted butter, followed by an even layer of the pineapple chunks. Set pan aside.
  2. In the bowl of a countertop mixer, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix by hand, using a wire whisk.
  3. Add oil, milk and vinegar mixture, eggs, and vanilla. Using the whisk attachment, mix on low for 30 seconds just to combine ingredients.
  4. Then, turn the mixer to high and beat for 3 minutes, scraping the downsides of the bowl a couple of times during the process. Pour batter into the cake pan over pineapple.
  5. Place cake pan on a jelly roll pan or line the rack with aluminum foil, for the love of all that is HOLY. 
  6. Bake for 55 to 65 minutes or just until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out with a couple of moist crumbs on it.
  7. Once done, remove the cake from the oven. Gently loosen sides of cake from pan using a butter knife.
  8. Place a clean jelly roll pan or large rectangular platter over the cake pan and carefully flip the cake over while still in the pan.
  9. Allow the cake pan to rest over the cake for 3 minutes prior to removing it so the caramelized brown sugar can drizzle over the top of the cake.
  10. Serve warm, at room temperature, or cold with sweetened whipped cream and maraschino cherries.

Pineapple Honey-Glazed Ham

No comments

Saturday, December 11, 2021


Ingredients :

Deselect All

One 9- to 10-pound bone-in fully-cooked smoked ham (butt or shank half)

1 tablespoon whole cloves, optional

Two 20-ounce cans sliced pineapple

20 maraschino cherries

2 cups honey

2 cups light brown sugar

Directions :

Let the ham sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Trim off any skin from the ham. Use a sharp paring knife to score through the fat in a diagonal crosshatch pattern without cutting through to the meat. Push the cloves into the ham, if using, placing them at the intersections of the cuts. Put the ham, flat-side down, on a rack in a roasting pan.

Drain the pineapples, reserving the juice. Arrange the sliced pineapple all over the ham, securing with toothpicks. Add a maraschino cherry to the center of each pineapple slice and secure with a toothpick.
Pour 1/4 inch water in the bottom of the pan and tent the ham with foil.

Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the ham (avoiding bone) registers 130 degrees F, about 2 hours 30 minutes (or about 15 minutes per pound).

Meanwhile, combine the honey, brown sugar and reserved pineapple juice in a large saucepan set over medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, syrupy and reduced to about 3 cups, 25 to 30 minutes. Set aside.

Increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees F.

Uncover the pan and carefully brush a third of the glaze all over the ham. If the water in the roasting pan has evaporated, add more. Bake the ham for 15 minutes more. Brush with another third of the glaze and bake for 15 minutes more. Brush the remaining glaze over the ham and cook until the glaze is shiny and the skin is dark golden brown and crispy, about 15 minutes more. Let rest for 15 minutes.

Enjoy !!!

How to make Lunch Lady Brownies



– 1/2 cup butter, melted

– 1 cup of granulated sugar

– 2 eggs

– 3 teaspoons vanilla extract

– 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

– 1 cup all purpose flour


– 2 Tablespoons butter, softened

– 3 Tablespoons milk

– 2 Tablespoons butter, softened

– 3 Tablespoons milk

– 2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

– 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar


– Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line a 9”x9” baking pan with foil, making sure that foil comes up over the sides somewhat.

– In mixing bowl cream together the sugar and butter for the batter, making sure to stir or blend until the mixture has lightened in both color and texture. Add in eggs and vanilla and stir until fully incorporated.

– Slowly add in flour and cocoa powder and mix just until color is uniform. Pour batter into baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out mostly dry with only a few moist crumbs. For the best texture do not overbake.

– While brownies are cooling begin to make the frosting. In a medium bowl combine butter, milk, cocoa powder, and powdered sugar until a smooth frosting texture is reached. If mixture is too dry add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time. If too runny, add in one tablespoon of powdered sugar at a time.

– Once frosting is the right texture spread over brownies while they are still warm so that some of the icing melts into the brownies. Cut into squares and use the foil to help lift the brownies out of the pan.

Enjoy !!

For the Crust

4 c unbleached all purpose flour
½ c sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 c (1/2 lb) salted butter, softened
4 eggs
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 Tbsp milk

For the Filling

2 lbs firm baking apple (Gala, McIntosh, or Pink Lady), peeled, cored, and sliced
2 lbs soft baking apple (Braeburn, Red Delicious, or Fuji), peeled, cored, and sliced
2 tsp cinnamon


For the Crust

Preheat the oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, and baking powder. Cut in the butter, using a pastry blender or a fork, until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract until the mixture is evenly moist.
Add the milk, 1 Tbsp at a time, mixing with your hands after each addition until a firm but slightly sticky dough forms. (Add extra milk if necessary.)
Turn the dough onto the counter and knead a few times, quickly (it may stick to the counter a bit) to finish bringing the dough together.
Divide the dough into two pieces, roughly 2/3 and 1/3 of the dough. Wrap the smaller section in plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 30 minutes, while you continue working. Press the larger section into a greased 9” spring form pan.
Bake the bottom crust in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, until it is puffy and starting to turn golden around the edges. When the crust is done, remove it from the oven to a cooling rack.

For the Filling

While the bottom crust is baking, mix the apples and cinnamon in a large sauté pan or large pot. Heat the apples over medium-high heat and sauté for 5-7 minutes, until the apples soften slightly and the mixture becomes fragrant. Remove the mixture from the heat.

Putting It All Together

Spread the warm filling over the warm crust. (It will look like you have A LOT of apples. Don’t worry; they cook down.)
Take the last 1/3 of the crust out of the freezer and grate it over the apple filling using a cheese grater (or crumble it over top of the apples using your fingers).
Place an aluminum foil lined baking sheet in the oven on the rack below where the pie will go, to catch any dripping from the spring form pan.
Return the pie to the oven and bake for 40-45 minutes, until the top is golden.

Cooling and Serving

Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool completely on a cooling rack.
Once the pie is cool it can be served or covered lightly with plastic wrap and left on the counter overnight, to be served the following day. (This pie is great when made a day ahead of time, because the flavors develop and the crust softens overnight.)

Enjoy !!

Baked Sweet Potato Frittata

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 35-40 minutes


Non-stick cooking spray

2 T. extra virgin olive oil, divided

1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced

1 medium red bell pepper, diced

½ medium red onion, diced

½ t. garlic powder

1 t. dried basil

1 t. dried parsley

Sea salt and black pepper, to taste

6 large eggs

3 T. half & half

1 c. gouda cheese, shredded, divided

2 c. fresh arugula or spinach


  1. Position top oven rack in the center position and pre-heat oven to 350°F. Spray a medium-sized baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add sweet potato, red pepper, onion, garlic powder, basil, and parsley. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and stir to combine.

  5. Add the remaining olive oil to the same skillet over medium heat and toss in the arugula or spinach. Cook, stirring occasionally, just until the greens wilt, approximately 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and spread evenly on top of the other vegetables in the baking dish.
  6. Pour the egg mixture on top and spread with a rubber spatula, if necessary, to cover the entire surface. Sprinkle remaining cheese on top and season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired.
  7. Place in pre-heated oven and bake until the egg is set and the top starts to turn golden brown, approximately 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool slightly before slicing. Garnish with fresh herbs, if using, and serve immediately.

Chicken Egg Roll

No comments

Chicken Egg Roll


1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, minced very finely

2 cloves garlic, pressed through a garlic press


Black pepper

Peanut or avocado oil, plus more for frying

2 cups fresh, baby spinach leaves, chopped

1 tablespoon chopped, flat-leaf parsley

1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

¼ cup grated parmesan cheese

Pinch red pepper flakes

1 tablespoon cornstarch

3 tablespoons water

10 egg roll skins (8 x 8-inch size), cut in half on the bias to create 20 triangles

1 ¼ cup grated gouda cheese


To begin, prepare the red pepper salsa: place all ingredients up to and including the cilantro into the bowl of a food processor, add in a couple of good pinches of salt, process until smooth, then check to see if any additional salt is needed. Keep cold, or serve at room temp.

To prepare your filling, add your minced chicken to a medium-size bowl, and to it add the 2 garlic cloves and a couple of good pinches of salt and black pepper, then toss these ingredients together until well coated.

Place a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, and drizzle in a little of the oil; once the pan is hot, add in the chicken and saute until cooked through, about 2-3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, scoop the chicken out of the pan, leaving the juices behind, and spoon into a paper towel-lined plate or bowl to cool completely.

Once the minced chicken has completely cooled, add it to a large bowl; then, add in the chopped spinach, parsley, cilantro, parmesan and the pinch of red pepper flakes, plus a tiny drizzle of oil, and mix to combine well. Taste to check if any additional salt or pepper is needed.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper, and set it nearby.

Whisk together the cornstarch and the water to create a slurry, as you will use this to seal your egg rolls closed, and set this aside.

To roll your egg rolls, take a triangle (half of an egg roll skin) and place it in front of you with the point facing upward; add 2 tablespoons of your chicken filling into the center along the bottom part of your triangle, and shape it into a log shape. Sprinkle about a teaspoon or so of the gouda cheese over that.

Next, fold the bottom left corner toward the center, then the right corner, making what looks like a little envelope; next, roll upwards as tightly as you can, and tuck as you go (try not to leave any air gaps or bubbles,); then, dab the top corner with a little cornstarch slurry and seal.

Place the egg rolls on the parchment-lined baking sheet, keeping them covered with a piece of plastic wrap so they don’t dry out, and repeat until all are rolled.

Heat about 3 cups of the oil in a small pot or saucepan, and bring up to 360°; then, carefully add about 3 egg rolls at a time to the hot oil, and fry for about 4 minutes. Drain on a wire rack to maintain crispness.

Serve the chicken egg rolls nice and hot, with the red pepper salsa on the side for dipping.

Enjoy !!
