HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

Happy Valentines DayValentine’s Day is a truly subjective menu.  Not everyone wants or dreams of the same foods.  So, awhile back when we were just sitting around I quizzed hubby in a round about way and was able to come up with his favorite romantic menu to create a romantic meal.  What are you doing for Valentine’s Day this year?
STRAWBERRY MARGARITAS
2 cups crushed ice
1/2 cup fresh strawberry puree
1 cup tequila
2 limes, juiced
Splash Triple Sec
Splash simple syrup (equal amounts sugar and water heated until sugar dissolves completely and then cooled)
  • Combine in a blender, ice, strawberry water, tequila, lime juice, Triple Sec and simple syrup.
  • Puree until smooth.
  • Pour into rocks glasses, garnish and serve.
CAJUN SHRIMP COCKTAIL
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup chili sauce
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons finely minced onion
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
Juice of 1 lemon (save your rind to make the cute serving dish)
2 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon Frank’s red pepper hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
salt to taste
plenty of fresh medium-large shrimp, cleaned and chilled
  • I use my mini food processor to mix it all in until well blended.
  • Chill for a day or so before needed to allow flavors to meld together.
CAESAR SALAD DRESSING
6 cloves garlic, mashed and minced
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Champagne Vinegar
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
1/3 cup canola oil
Sea Salt
White Pepper
Juice of 1 lemon
Minced anchovy fillets (optional – I usually leave them out)
  • Combine garlic, mustard, vinegar and two pinches of salt in a blender and mix thoroughly.
  • Add mayonnaise and blend together to form a thick base.
  • In a slow stream add oil.
  • Scrape dressing with spatula into a bowl and season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon juice.
  • Optional – Add anchovies to dressing to create a deeper, saltier taste.
PARMESAN CHEESE CROUTONS
6 slices thick sourdough bread
butter, melted, enough to coat bread
½ cup Fontina Cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Place bread slices on oven rack and bake until dry and golden.
  • Melt butter in flat bowl.
  • Combine cheeses in flat bowl.
  • Dip first in butter and the cheese mixture.
  • Bake on cookie sheet 8-10 minutes until cheese is bubbly and melted.
  • Cut to desired size*
*If I’m in a hurry I will sometimes cut these ahead of time and toss with the butter and cheese which coats all the sides better.
GARLIC STEAK
Steak of choice (hubby choose T-bones)
2 cloves of garlic per steak, minced fine
1 tablespoon champagne vinegar per steak
1/2 tablespoon canola oil
sea salt
white pepper
  • Pierce each steak with a marinater.
  • Whisk together the garlic, oil, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place steak side by side of a large plate.
  • Pour marinade over top.
  • Turn steak and make sure each is well coated.
  • Cover and marinate overnight.
  • Take steak out of refrigerator an hour before grilling, turn several times making sure still well coated in marinade.
  • Firmly press garlic pieces into the steak.
  • Grilled to desired doneness – mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, medium rare….
TWICE BAKED POTATOES
4 large baking potatoes
8 slices bacon
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Bake potatoes in preheated oven for 1 hour or until done through.
  • Meanwhile, place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  • When potatoes are done allow them to cool for 10 minutes. Slice potatoes in half lengthwise and scoop the flesh into a large bowl; saving skins.
  • To the potato pieces add the sour cream, milk, butter, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup cheese and 1/2 the green onions. Mix with a hand mixer until well blended and creamy. Spoon the mixture into the potato skins. Top each with remaining cheese, green onions and bacon.
  • Bake for another 15 minutes.

You Scream, We Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream

July 31st is Joy’s Ice Cream Round Up over at Joy of Desserts so in preparation I am doing a bit of an ice cream review if you will covering the basics and a few yummy recipes too will soon follow.

  • Ice cream at its most basic is sweetened, frozen cream and milk. The amount and type of butterfat used will determine the richness and creaminess of the ice cream. Adding eggs increases the creaminess. The butterfat chart ranges from using skim milk at less than 1/2% butterfat through low fat milk, whole milk, evaporated milk… to heavy cream at 36% butterfat.
  • You can use sugar, maple syrup or honey to determine the sweetness. Each sweetener has its own specific flavor. The darker the syrup or honey the stronger the flavoring.
  • Eggs or egg yolks are used as emulsifiers to bind the butterfat and tend to make a richer, creamier ice cream. This ice cream also stores longer. Many commercial companies use Polysorbate 80 in place of “real” eggs.
  • Air is a hidden ingredient in ice cream and necessary to some extent to prevent ice cream from being a block of ice, but a little goes a long way and the less air the creamier the ice cream.
  • One of the keys to a good ice cream is using COLD ingredients. All ice creams start out soft. It can become icy if allowed to ‘harden” too long.
  • You always start with a sweet cream base and the flavor is then determined by the additives. Some of the basic flavorings such as vanilla or chocolate are added in the beginning of the freezing process while your ‘chunkier’ additives (chocolate chips, bits of heath bar, fruit pieces, etc…) are added towards the end, but before the freezing process is completed.
  • Salt is added in very small amounts to enhance flavors by many, but is a personal preference.
  • If you are using liqueurs in your ice cream the freezing time will be extended and always be a soft ice cream. Less is more when it comes to adding liqueurs. If you add to much, it will never freeze.
  • When using fruits, use a HIGH butterfat sweet cream base to counteract the additional moisture found in fruits. Also when using fruits chop them and toss them with a bit of sugar several hours or a day or so in advance, keeping them totally COLD.
  • A few basic fruit to sugar ratios to remember are: bananas 1:no sugar, raspberries 2:1, apricots, cherries or blackberries 3:1, peaches or strawberries 4:1

BASIC BASE for a rich and creamy ice cream
2 JUMBO eggs
3/4 cup superfine granulated sugar
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 cup whole milk

  • In a large mixing bowl whisk the eggs until light and fluffy.
  • Gradually add the sugar while whisking.
  • When sugar is dissolved add the cream and milk until well blended.

TUNE IN THIS WEEK AS I POST MORE ICE CREAM RECIPES. Hubby really looking forward to being a taste tester over the next couple weeks!
