17: Appetizers

18: INGREDIENTS 6 or 7 ripe plum tomatoes (about 1 1/2 lbs) Plum tomatoes are best since they are thick skinned and have less juice/seeds! 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar 6-8 fresh basil leaves, chopped Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste 1 baguette French bread or similar Italian bread 1/4 cup olive oil | DIRECTIONS Slice an X into the skin of each tomato. This will make peeling the skins off much easier after parboiling. Parboil, place tomatoes in boiling water and remove from heat, for one minute. Remove tomatoes immediately from water to ensure they do not stew. I let the tomatoes rest for a minute. It doesn’t effect the skin removal so give your finger tips a break! Once skins have been removed, slice each tomato in half and remove stem parts,seeds,pith and juice. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees and make sure your rack is in the top position. Dice tomatoes and put them into a medium sized bowl. Add oil, vinegar, basil, garlic, salt and pepper and toss gently. Slice the baguette on a diagonal about 1/2 inch thick slices. Coat one side of each slice with olive oil using a pastry brush. Place on a cooking sheet, olive oil side down. You will want to toast them in the top rack in your oven, so you may need to do these in batches depending on the size of your oven. Once the oven has reached 450F, place a tray of bread slices in the oven on the top rack. Toast for 5-6 minutes, until the bread just begins to turn golden brown. Alternatively, you can toast the bread without coating it in olive oil first. Toast on a griddle for 1 minute on each side. Take a sharp knife and score each slice 3 times. Rub some garlic in the slices and drizzle half a teaspoon of olive oil on each slice. This is the more traditional method of making bruschetta. Align the bread on a serving platter, olive oil side up. Either place the tomato topping in a bowl separately with a spoon for people to serve themselves over the bread, or place some topping on each slice of bread and serve. If you top each slice with the tomatoes, do it right before serving or the bread may get soggy. | Bruschetta & Classic Tomato topping

19: INGREDIENTS 1 1/2 cups warm water 2 tablespoons light brown sugar 1 package active dry yeast 3 ounces unsalted butter, melted 2 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt 4 1/2 to 5 cups all-purpose flour Vegetable oil 3 quarts water 3/4 cup baking soda 1 whole egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon cold water Coarse sea salt Cheese Sauce (See Recipe) | DIRECTIONS Combine the water, sugar, yeast, and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix with the dough hook until combined. Let sit for 5 minutes. Add the salt and flour and mix on low speed until combined. Increase the speed to medium and continue kneading until the dough is smooth and begins to pull away from the side of the bowl, about 3 to 4 minutes. If the dough appears too wet, add additional flour, 1 tablespoon at a time. Remove the dough from the bowl, place on a flat surface and knead into a ball with your hands. Oil a bowl with vegetable oil, add the dough and turn to coat with the oil. Cover with a clean towel or plastic wrap and place in a warm spot until the dough doubles in size, about 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Bring the water to a boil in a small roasting pan over high heat and add the baking soda. Remove the dough from the bowl and place on a flat surface. Divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, about 4 1/4 to 4 1/2 ounces each. Roll each piece into a long rope measuring 22 inches and shape. Cut the dough into one inch pieces to make the pretzel bites. Boil the pretzel bites in the water solution in small batches. Boil for about 30 seconds. Remove with a large slotted spoon. Place pretzel bites on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Make sure they are not touching. Brush the tops with the egg wash and season liberally with the salt. Place into the oven and bake for 15 to 18 minutes until golden brown. Remove to a baking rack and let rest 5 minutes before eating. Serve with cheese sauce. | Soft Pretzel Bites

20: INGREDIENTS Tablespoon unsalted butter Tablespoon all-purpose flour cup milk 8 ounces Cheddar cheese, grated | DIRECTIONS Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Season with salt and pepper, to taste. *If you want to make cinnamon and sugar pretzel bites-instead of adding salt, sprinkle the bites with cinnamon and sugar. For the frosting mix-soft cream cheese-about 3 T, powdered sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla extract, and a little bit of milk. Whisk together. Add more milk if it is too thick, if it is too thin, add more powdered sugar.* | Cheese Sauce (for Soft Pretzel Bites)

73: Desserts

74: INGREDIENTS 10 wonton wrappers 3 Tbsp Nutella Hazelnut Spread Ripe banana, thinly sliced 1 egg white 1/2 cup vegetable oil confectioner’s sugar | DIRECTIONS Lay out the wonton wrappers and put about 1 tsp of Nutella in the center of each wonton. Place a banana slice on top. Brush all of the edges with the egg white. I dip my finger into the egg wash and “draw” along the edges. I find it quicker and one less thing to wash! Fold the wonton to form a triangle and press the edges together firmly. In a small sauce pan heat the oil over medium-low. Place 1 or 2 wontons into the hot oil. Flip the wontons over after 5 seconds. Let the wonton cook for another 5 seconds, or until golden brown. Place on an paper towel to absorb excess oil. Serve warm with a sprinkle of confectioners’ sugar on top. | Banana Nutella Wontons

75: 35 | INGREDIENTS 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter 2 1/4 cups sugar 4 large eggs 1 1/4 cups Dutch-process cocoa (I didn’t have any on hand so I used half regular cocoa and half dark chocolate cocoa) 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon espresso powder, optional 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour 2 cups chocolate chips | DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. (Make sure you don’t grease the sides otherwise the brownies can’t “climb” up the sides.) In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, or in a saucepan set over low heat, melt butter, then add the sugar and stir to combine. Return the mixture to the heat (or microwave) briefly, just until it’s hot (about 110F to 120F), but not bubbling; it’ll become shiny looking as you stir it. Heating this mixture a second time will dissolve more of the sugar, which will yield a shiny top crust on your brownies. While the sugar heats a second time, crack the 4 eggs into a bowl, and beat them with the cocoa, salt, baking powder, espresso powder (I didn’t have any on hand but I do encourage using coffee/espresso to enhance chocolate!), and vanilla till smooth. Add the hot butter/sugar mixture, stirring until smooth. Add the flour and chocolate chips, again stirring until smooth. (I only added half of the chips and let those melt.I let the mixture cool for about 20 minutes and then added the other half so that the chips would remain intact inside the finished brownie) Spoon the batter into a lightly greased pan. Bake the brownies for about 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with only a few moist crumbs on it. Cool on a rack before serving. To get nice, clean cut brownies you’ll need to let cool for 2 hours. Don’t worry they’ll still be nice and warm to eat though! | Fudge Brownies

76: INGREDIENTS Raspberry Curd 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter Two 1/2-pints ripe raspberries or one 12-ounce package frozen raspberries, thawed 5 large egg yolks, lightly beaten 3/4 cup sugar Pinch of salt 2 to 3 tsp fresh lemon juice Cake Nonstick cooking spray 1 1/2 cups + 2 Tbsp granulated sugar zest of 1 lemon 2 1/4 cups cake flour, plus more for dusting the pans 1 cup + 2 tablespoons whole milk, at room temperature 6 large egg whites (3/4 cup), at room temperature 2 tsp almond extract 1 tsp vanilla extract 4 tsp baking powder 1 tsp table salt 12 Tbsp unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), softened but still cool | DIRECTIONS Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the raspberries, egg yolks, sugar, and salt and cook, mashing the berries and stirring frequently at first and them constantly at the end, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour the mixture through a coarse strainer set over a bowl, pressing hard on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible. Cool to room temperature; the curd will continue to thicken as it cools. Stir in lemon juice to taste. Refrigerate, covere, until ready to serve, or for up to 1 month. Set oven rack in middle position. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray two 9-inch round cake pans with nonstick cooking spray; line the bottoms with parchment or waxed paper rounds. Spray the paper rounds, dust the pans with flour, and invert pans and rap sharply to remove excess flour. Or, do what I do. Buy some Wilton’s Cake Release and never flour another pan! Pour milk, egg whites, and extracts into 2-cup glass measure, and mix with fork until blended. Put the sugar and lemon zest in a mixer bowl and rub them together with your fingers until the sugar is moist and fragrant. Add cake flour, baking powder, and salt to mixer bowl and mix at slow speed. Add butter; continue beating at slow speed until mixture resembles moist crumbs, with no powdery streaks remaining. Add all but 1/2 cup of milk mixture to crumbs and beat at medium speed for 1 1/2 minutes. Add remaining 1/2 cup of milk mixture and beat 30 seconds more. Stop mixer and scrape sides of bowl. Return mixer to medium speed and beat 20 seconds longer. Divide batter evenly between two prepared cake pans; using rubber spatula, spread batter to pan walls and smooth tops.
