Honey Baked Ham

Honey Baked Ham

I love the honey baked ham from the honey baked ham store. But come on the prices are ridiculous high. So here is a copycat recipe of the Honey Baked Ham and it’s not that hard to make at all. You just need the right instrument which is a blowtorch. I bought mine at Marshals.

Green bean Casserole

Green bean Casserole

Saw this Green Bean Casserole recipe on food network good eats and just had to make it, instead of the can of mushroom soup recipe. I am trying to stay away from the can goods and buy the fresh stuff. Not to say that this is a healthy dish, but it can be if you leave the half and half out and just use broth ;).

Appelflappen (Apple Beignets)

Appelflappen (Apple Beignets)

Confusion about apple fritter and apple turnover. Is it appelflappen or appel beignets? Depends who you ask, and it depends where you are at.  If you have appetite for an apple fritter or an apple turnover you should wait and see what you get from the bakery. Both contains apple but how is the apple packaged. In puff pastry and baked in the oven or batter fried? It seems impossible to put an end to this confusion. Because how do you get everyone involved so far as to use the same definitions for apple fritters and apple turnovers? As for me I’m still calling these appelflappen because that’s what they were called where I grew up, even though officialy they are called appel beignets 😉 Appelflappen (beignets) are next to the oliebol the most popular treat on New Years Eve. Every Dutch family will have some oliebollen and or appelflappen.

Ingredients
  • 1½ cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Salt
  • 1¼ cups beer (Heineken)
  • Vegetable oil, for deep-frying
  • 4 Golden Delicious or which ever apples you got available
  • Granulated or confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
 

Instructions
  1. Peel and core the apples slice in ¼ inch rings and put them in cold water so they wont turn brown.
  2. In a bowl, whisk the all-purpose flour with a pinch of salt; gradually whisk in the beer until completely smooth. Allow the batter to rest for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 hour.
  3. In a large deep skillet, heat 3 inches of the vegetable oil to 370° over moderate heat. Stir the batter. Working in batches, dip the apple rings in the batter and fry them, turning occasionally, until golden and crisp, about 6 minutes. Using a slotted spoon or a wire skimmer, transfer the beignets to a baking sheet lined with paper towels to drain. Keep the cooked beignets warm in a low oven while frying the rest. Sprinkle the beignets with granulated sugar or sift confectioners’ sugar over them and serve hot.

Prime Rib Roast

Prime Rib Roast

Prime Rib Roast. The above Prime Rib Roast is a bit overdone in my opinion but never the less it was still juicy and tender. Next time cook it shorter.
