When deep summer comes to the Gulf Coast South, dishes served cold become the most appealing thing on the menu. This brings me to shrimp remoulade, which seems to have been created exactly for this purpose. Two classic New Orleans recipes. The post Shrimp Remoulade Two Ways appeared first on Ann Cavitt Fisher.
Don’t you love a great tasting and easy Chocolate Brownie recipe? This is almost as easy as opening a box mix only without the added preservatives. I love to eat them with or without frosting. I also love to put chocolate chips in them. I think my favorite part about this recipe is not only how wonderful it tastes but that it only makes enough for an 8” pan. Now of course you can double or triple this recipe but I made this for the grandkids and I really didn’t want a ton of leftovers!

Hi, I’m Rachel, and I’m addicted to true crime.
I know I’m like 6 years late to this party, but I am here now with bells on, so giddy up!
I’m just obsessed. I haven’t stopped listening to this “My Favorite Murder” podcast that a stranger told me about a few weeks ago (is it possible she wants to murder me?) and all I want to watch are murder documentaries and (for balance) The Office.
Like, there are human beings out there capable of murdering other human beings and feeling no remorse. How is this possible?! Fascinating. I hope all murderers are signed up to have their minds donated to science. It’s made me like super paranoid, though. More so than usual. Remember, I’m the girl who made her mom leave a movie theatre several years ago because there was a guy by himself with a backpack. I was not…

Lately I have been binge watching old BBC murder mystery series, and one of the recurring themes, aside from the copious amounts of tea and beautifully manicured cottage gardens, are the town bake-offs. I have lost count of the number of people that have keeled over dead after eating a heaping forkful of Victoria Sponge. This, in turn, got me thinking about the fact that I had never actually tried a real Victoria Sponge, either making one or eating one, and so, from the safety of my own kitchen, I decided to experiment. I read through the dozen, or so, Victoria Sponge recipes found on the BBC website, and readily figured out that cake was equal parts butter, eggs, flour, and sugar. It also seems like the more traditional sandwich fillings are raspberry jam and whipped cream, but strawberry jam and buttercream are the more popular ones. I used strawberry…

On my menu for this weekend. Have you cooked with rhubarb? If so, what did you make?
Easy and quick rhubarb pie

3.5 dl cream milk
6 dl wheat flour
3 tsp baking powder
100 g of butter

Beat the eggs and sugar in a mess. You can also choose to float the mixer. Add the cream of milk. Add the flour and baking powder. Finally, add the melted butter and stir. Spread the dough on a baking sheet on a baking tray and sprinkle over the rhubarb. Bake for about 1/2 hour at 200 degrees. Serve with vanilla sauce though. (Google translator)
