Magic Cookie Bars
Posted on 09.15.07 by itscrazydelicious @

Here is a great recice for Magic Cookie bars. I like walnuts rather than pecans and I don’t like the coconut flakes – but that is just me. Here is a great recipe I have found from Southern Food. Great for treats for the kids too – and one of my favorite desserts too.

1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
1 pkg (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 can (3 1/2 ounces) flaked coconut, or about 1 1/3 cups
1 cup chopped pecans (Personally I like Walnuts)

Preheat oven to 350°.
Melt butter in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Sprinkle crumbs evenly over melted butter; pour sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumbs. Top evenly with remaining ingredients; press down firmly.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Posted on 09.10.07 by itscrazydelicious @

It is that time again and I just love to roast those pumpkin seeds. It is messy yes but it is a lot of fun and it is just so good. And pumpkin seeds are actually quite healthy too.
I got this recipe from Fabulous Foods.

1 1/2 cups pumpkin seeds
2 tsp. melted butter or oil (olive oil or vegetable oil work well)
salt to taste
Options To Taste:
garlic powder
cayenne pepper
seasoning salt
Cajun seasoning blend

Preheat oven to 300° F.
While it’s O.K. to leave some strings and pulp on your seeds (it adds flavor), clean off any major chunks. Toss pumpkin seeds in a bowl with the melted butter or oil and seasonings of your choice. Spread pumpkin seeds in a single layer on baking sheet. Bake for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.

Mix Brownies with Cookies
Posted on 08.18.07 by itscrazydelicious @

Ok…I just love Brownies and I just love Cookies so why not put them together. Make your brownies and then get a toll house cookie roll. Follow the directions for the brownie mix and put it in the 9X9 pan. Then just put 16-20 balls of cookie dough on top and bake it for 25 minutes at 350 – it is so delicious!

Portuguese Bacon Pudding with Caramel and Figs
Posted on 03.18.07 by itscrazydelicious @

This recipe is by Alan Coxon from Great Food Live…I have yet to try it but I love bacon! And it sounds simply wonderful!

Alan Coxon’s sensational bacon pudding is served with honey-baked figs flavoured with orange and brandy and topped with an intriguing bacon toffee

Servings: 6-8
Level of difficulty: Intermediate
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 45 minutes

For the pudding:
390 caster sugar
300ml water
1×7.5 cm piece lemon rind
1 bay leaf
1 cinnamon stick
80g smoked bacon, rind removed and finely diced
12 egg yolks, well beaten
2 tbsp port
For the baked figs
1 fig, per portion
50ml Honey
100ml orange juice
50ml Brandy
1 tsp grated orange zest
500g toasted flaked almonds
For the bacon toffee
210g caster sugar
125ml water
40g Bacon, finely shredded and blanched in boiling water for 1 minute

1. Heat the sugar with the water, lemon rind, bay leaf, cinnamon and finely diced bacon.

2. Bring to the boil and cook steadily to 104°C/220-225F on a sugar thermometer, or when a little of the mixture separates into threads when dropped into cold water. Remove from the heat, and strain through a sieve and allow to cool.

3. Preheat the oven to 240C/gas 9.

4. Add the egg yolks and port to the syrup and stir well. Then pour the pudding mixture into a large pudding basin or individual basins or dariole moulds.

5. Place the basin(s) in a bain-marie (or roasting tin filled with hot water to come half way up the basins) and cook in the oven for about 1 hour, if using a large pudding basin or about 35 minutes if using individual moulds. The pudding should be set and slightly golden, then remove from the oven and leave to cool until lukewarm.

6. To bake the figs: trim the tops and bases of the figs and prick all over with a toothpick. Stand the figs upright in an ovenproof dish. Mix together the honey, orange juice, brandy and orange zest and pour over the figs.

7. Cover and bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes basting from time to time.

8. For the bacon toffee: mix the sugar with the water in a small pan and stir until dissolved. Bring to the boil and simmer until amber in colour. Add the blanched bacon.

9. Using a fork or spoon, drizzle the bacon toffee into patterns on non-stick parchment and leave to cool and set.

10. Turn out the lukewarm pudding(s) and place a fig on top of each pudding. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and drizzle with a little of the pan liquor. Top with the crispy bacon caramel and serve.
