Here’s a recipe for Pub Sauce from My Tartare. It’s a reduction – a demi-glace – made with beer and perfect for everything from steak to gravy.
In this post, we review Gilbert’s Craft Sausages. We grilled several varieties of chicken and beef sausages and taste tested them alone and with several condiments. Gilbert’s will is one the vendors at Chicago’s Wrigley Field this summer. Go Cubs!
Martha Stewart’s recipe for Salted-Caramel Six-Layer Chocolate Cake uses Dutch process cocoa powder as well as semisweet chocolate, so it’s black as night, but packed with true chocolate flavor. Nothing beats homemade caramel, and the caramel-chocolate pairing is intense. This cake is not for the timid.
Yuh-huh, another lasagna, but this one’s for you, Trump supporters: it’s white. This original-recipe Spinach-Herb Lasagna is a white lasagna, layered with a thyme-infused bechamel, plus loads of ricotta, parmesan, and mozzerella cheeses. And surprise: bacon! It’s delicious fresh, but also reheats and freezes well.
This is a review of Lidia Bastianich’s “Italian-American Lasagna.” It’s loaded with meat sauce, mozzerella, and ricotta. It’s a fantastic recipe. It also freezes and reheats beautifully: so have some now and have some months from now. You’ll get a lot of delicious mileage out of this.
Parmesan and ricotta cheeses combine to create this savory cheesecake. Truffle oil and pesto put it over the top. You’re friends will think you’re freaking amazing – which is cool, because you are.
This molten chocolate cake is the final post in our three-part chocolate cake binge. It’s intensely chocolaty: melted chocolate compounded with a ton of cocoa. It’s best freshly baked, but you can easily re-moltenize the lava, as it reheats well in the microwave.
Chocolate Birthday Baileys Surprise Cake, is a Dutch-process, hot water chocolate, four-layer cake with an espresso-laced Baileys filling and a triple cream (sour, cheese, whipping) frosting. Buttermilk makes it rich, oil (rather than butter) makes it moist, and dark, dark cocoa gives it its profound flavor.
Good things come in threes: this is the first of a trio of chocolate cakes that we’ll present over the next few weeks. Chocolate Stout Cake is a hot water cocoa cake in which the oil and water are replaced by sour cream and beer. Topped off with a cream cheese frosting, it’s quite an impressive cake.
