Bites from other Blogs

  • No Special EffectsDulce De Leche Flan is described as being a dessert for dessert lovers. It is very sweet and very rich, made with lots of homemade dulce de leche. This recipe takes a bit of patience, since the milk caramel itself takes several hours to make and the egg yolk-rich flan takes another couple of hours to bake. Patience pays off with this recipe, though, because the flavors and textures aren’t quite like anything you’ll find in other dishes.
  • What could be more indulgent than a rich, chocolate brownie? How about a rich, chocolate Butterscotch Brownie Tart, like the one that Back to the Cutting Board made. This tart is drenched in a decadent butterscotch sauce that really adds a lot of sweetness to the dessert as a whole. The filling for the tart is a fairly standard brownie recipe, and the same can be said for the crust, and they come together quite easily. Try serving this with vanilla ice cream.
  • Pizzelles can be used as cannoli wrappers, and can also be used to make easy ice cream sandwiches. It would be easy to combine the two desserts by making a batch of Cannoli Ice Cream and sandwiching it between to of the flat waffle cookies. One Ordinary Day‘s recipe uses cream, ricotta cheese, pistachios and chocolate chips. It’s heavy on the ricotta, giving it a real cannoli flavor that fans of the Italian dessert should really appreciate.
  • It’s not a dessert, but if you’re growing tomatos this summer and are looking for a way to use up some of them, try making fried green tomatoes. Ms. Glaze’s Pommes D’Amour created Fried Green Zebra Tomatoes with Poached Egg & Basil, which turn the simple tomatoes into a meal. Green tomatoes are breaded and deep fried. They can be eaten on their own and are great as an appetizer, but here are stacked up with slices of juicy red tomato and topped with a perfect poached egg that creates a sort of sauce for the tomato tower if you like your yolks soft.
  • A simple fruit cake is one of the best ways to use up summer fruits – and I mean fruit cake as in cake packed with fresh fruit, not the rum-drenched holiday cake. Such cakes usually look quite simple and rustic, and while that isn’t a bad thing, Food Gal found a great way to dress up a Stone Fruit Tea Cake, made with peaches, by baking it in a tart pan. This makes the cake look a little bit more elegant, both to look at and to serve, and gives it a lovely fluted edge. You could easily experiment with different types of fresh fruits for this recipe, and I suspect that berries would work as well as stone fruits.
