Chocolate Bella Chow Biscotti, sinfully delicious



Cooking Demonstration in Baton Rouge, Louisiana
My marathon baking day concluded with Chocolate Bella Chow Biscotti. I am baking cookies for my birthday and freezing them, which coincidentally enough got me to thinking about Edward Cullen and his ability to be immortal. Well these cookies are good, and they may even go into the history books, but they aren't immortal, enough while you are a mortal and they are good for even the Vegetarian Vampire in your family. Well, maybe.

Chocolate Bella Chow Biscotti

2 cups of flour
1/2 cup of cocoa, unsweetened
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
6 tablespoons of butter, melted
2 eggs
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

Directions: Blend all ingredients in a mixer on low speed, except the flour. Gradually add the flour and form into two balls. On an greased baking sheet and with your hands, form into a ball and then on the cookie sheet shape to look like a loaf and continue to pat down until it is about one and a half inches in thickness. Add colored sprinkles. Place in a 350 degree preheated oven and cook for 10 minutes or until loaf is cooked through, but still a little doughy. Next, with a serated knife, cut diagonally and place on one side. Return to oven and bake on sides another 10 minutes. Cool and eat.

Mushroom Ravioli, Stir Fry ala Swan, Charlie's Catch of The Day Crab Cakes, Time for Tea Cake Cookies, excerpts from Love at First Bite, by Gina Meyers

Love at First Bite Cookbook, something yummy to sink your teeth into.


Mushroom Ravioli

10 ounces mushroom ravioli or cheese-filled ravioli
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 ounces shiitake mushrooms, sliced
4 ounces button (table) mushrooms, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup brandy
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Directions: Prepare ravioli according to package directions; drain. Next, over medium heat, pour olive oil in a skillet and cook mushrooms until tender. Add garlic and brandy, and cook for 2 minutes. Slowly stir in heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. When cream has thickened, stir in 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese. Then, stir in cooked ravioli, and gently simmer for 1 to 2 minutes. Serve with parmesan, garlic bread, and salad. Makes 2 servings.

Bella left Charlie a note on the table explaining again where to find dinner.

Stir Fry ala Swan
½ Tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 Tablespoon of sugar
1 pound of lean hamburger
2 teaspoons of minced garlic
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium head of cabbage shredded or cut into slightly larger than bite size pieces.
1 can (10 ¾ ounces) of tomato soup
1 can (8 ounces) of tomato sauce
¼ cup of water
1 Tablespoon of soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of salt (optional)

Directions: In a skillet, over medium heat, add 1/2 Tablespoon of vegetable oil. Next, add 1 Tablespoon of sugar, the uncooked hamburger meat, diced onion, and minced garlic. With a spatula, break apart hamburger meat and cook uncovered over medium heat until hamburger meat is thoroughly cooked. Once the hamburger meat is browned, take off the stove top and remove the excess fat. Wash the skillet out with lukewarm water and place the cooked meat with garlic and onion back in the skillet and add the cabbage, tomato soup and tomato sauce (optional: may add salt and soy sauce). Cook covered over low heat until cabbage is tender, about 20 minutes. Makes 6 to 8 servings and can be complemented with white or brown rice.

Helpful Hint: To remove excess oil from hamburger meat, scoop hamburger meat over a plate lined with paper towels, this will absorb the excess fat.

Apple Oatmeal Bars, easy and sinfully delicious



Recently on an airplane leaving Charlotte, North Carolina, I met Dorothy Pfeiffer, a beautiful woman in her mid-seventies. She was heading to California to visit her niece to go to a bridal shower and camping! We immediately hit it off and ended up talking about being a Christian (she shared her love of the Lord and the awesome things he has done in her life), and FOOD, of course. We exchanged recipes, I conveniently had a copy of my Cook Like a Hot Italian Mama Cookbook Buy Today!  and she had this winner of a recipe, Apple Oatmeal Bars. She talked about how she made it for a church function one afternoon and how all of the people at the party were raving about this simple recipe. She also confided in me that the engaged couple had requested that each person coming to the bridal shower bring along a time treasured recipe. They were going to collect them and use them as staple recipes after the nuptials. Pretty cool I thought.
We graciously exchanged a recipe book for a recipe. :)

Apple Oatmeal Bars
1 cup of oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of butter (cube)
1 cup of flour (if gluten allergies, use gluten-free flour, such as rice flour)
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
2 1/2 cups of chopped Gala Apples (3 medium sized apples)
1/2 cup of sugar (if diabetic, substitute for sugar for a sugar substitute like Truvia)
Directions: Combine first five ingredients and pat half into an 8-inch by 8-inch pan. Layer apples and sugar. Crumble remaining mixture on top. Bake for 35-45 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Cool, cut, and serve.
