Recipes that include lemon juice

Fresh Ginger Bundt Cake with Lemon Glaze

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

Who am I to question Nick Malgieri? He is only one of the best cake bakers in the world. Well, in my humble opinion, he has this incredible recipe (in his book, Perfect Cakes) but I think half the glaze is enough. Look at the picture. Is that not enough? By the way, that’s what it looks like in the book too. Also, I used more lemon juice so here’s my slightly altered version that I think is pure heaven. I didn’t touch the cake one bit though. Like I said, one of the best cake bakers in the world, and amongst the many recipes I’ve tried, this is one of his best!

Buttermilk Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Berries

Monday, April 20, 2009

Top of Cake Slice

We had to make a cake super fast yesterday. Luckily, we had left-over frosting from the Red Velvet Cake. I also wanted to use up the buttermilk (bought for the Red Velvet Cake), so a plan was born. I found a Nick Malgieri Recipe for Buttermilk Cake Layers. I would use the left-over frosting, and I’d throw in a strawberry and blueberry filling/topping of my own, to dress it up. It seamed like an easy plan in my head. Ok, so it turns out, it’s not THAT easy, but it’s not really hard either, just a few more steps… We were just in a real rush and had to throw it all together so fast that the frosting job wasn’t gorgeous but it tastes REALLY good. It’s now one of our favorites and will probably be frequently made as a birthday cake.

Wild Blueberry Hand Pies

Saturday, April 18, 2009

blueberry hand pie

I want just about anything made with blueberries. Along with cherries, they share the pedestal for my favorite fruit, so when I saw a recipe for Blueberry Hand Pies on A Southern Grace, I bookmarked it right away. I did tweak the recipe a bit to my liking, but how can you go wrong with a portable pie, you can eat without a plate and fork?

Lamb Pizzaiola

Wednesday, March 25, 2009

Inspired by a recipe for Wine-Braised Lamb Shanks on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives (prepared at Giusti’s Place), I created this recipe for lamb shanks. A little bit of spice and acid go a long way in my version. Their idea to serve the lamb with sauced, wet polenta inspired me to serve with a grilled polenta cake.

Crawfish Gumbo

Sunday, March 22, 2009

Crawfish Gumbo was, by a good margin, the winner of the FoodMayhem Reader’s Choice: Crawfish Season, receiving 35.7% of the votes. There are many recipes already available online for Crawfish Gumbo, so my goal was to write a definitive guide. I’ve made gumbo quite a few times in the past, so I have a few tips to share. This post is more about the tips than anything else.

The number one tip I have for you is (Tip #1): Don’t attempt to make gumbo unless you’re planning to spend the whole day making it!

Cascabel Ground Beef Sauce & Spaetzle

Wednesday, February 4, 2009

If you paid me a million dollars I wouldn’t be able to truthfully tell you where the inspiration for this dish came from. Jessica asked me a dozen times while cooking what I was making and repeatedly I answered “dunno.”

Lazy Chicken Sausage Soup

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

Lon and I aren’t feeling that great today so we didn’t want to go buy groceries. We didn’t want to spend a lot of time cooking. So this is what we got, Lazy Chicken Sausage Soup. It’s made with all things we had and takes a max of 10 minutes to make, and tastes quite good.

Two More Barbecue Sauces

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

What’s better than barbecue sauce? Two barbecue sauces! In continuing our Pulled Pork fest, I made two more barbecue sauces. The first is a nice and spicy sauce that features molasses and heat. The second is a super basic sauce, similar to one my mom used to make for chicken.

Blue-Pear-Y Crumb Pie

Tuesday, January 6, 2009

I’ve been working on this recipe for a while, trying several variations. The hard part (at least for me) was that pears give off a lot more water than apples. This is finally a version worthy of your eyes and taste buds. It’s a simple fruit pie that can be made in winter months since it uses pears and dried blueberries.

Cheddar Crust Apple Pie

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

I’ve seen a couple of recipes for apple pie with cheddar cheese in the crust, intending to try it out at some point. I finally got around to it and found this recipe that used a 9X13 oval baking dish. I happen to have one and have never seen a recipe using it. Boy, was I ecstatic!

After reading the recipe more carefully, I realized a couple of problems. I didn’t want the raisins in this recipe (no general prejudice against them) and I wanted a double crust pie, not just a top crust. Luckily, it seemed this recipe made more then enough dough for a double crust, and you’ll still have left-over. (I’ll try to do something with this another day.) Lastly, I like tall pies. (Have you heard of Mile High Apple Pie?) So, I increased the apple filling.
