Call this Act 2 of Cinnamon Toast Bread. The original Cinnamon Toast Bread has cinnamon IN the dough and called for a ton of toasted walnuts. We tested it a few ways and in the end, left out the walnuts. Our New Zealand tester, Leone Lamb, got a test version that called for NO cinnamon in the dough, toasted walnuts and the sugar/cinnamon topping. (Give Leone a bread to test and you hear from her but two hours later, singing bread kudos from 17 hours, and several time zones away). She raved. That was good news. So, we made it her way in our second test. Wow! Great bread again. This is not a variation; this is a new recipe. It has less yeast than some of my breads so be patient. It is a slower rise but the bread is very tender, and moist – light but not feathery – more delicate. We are sorry - this marvellous recipe is now in the new cookbook, upcoming in late 2006 or early 2007. Thank you for your understanding. We suggest Cinnamon Swirl Bread while you wait.
These are the real deal - true Irish steel cut oats. Make a big batch once a week and store it in the fridge. This is also bolstered with some wheatgerm and ground flax but you can leave those out if you like and sprinkle them on top on each single hot cereal serving or as I do - sprinkle on some hemp hearts. Just scoop out as much oatmeal as you need, microwave for a minute and lace it with milk, Greek yogurt and maple syrup. The mellow taste of vanilla and maple extract only showcase the natural, buttery taste of the oats. Real oats lower your blood serum cholesterol and a small bowl anchors your appetite so that you don’t have cravings or snack your way to lunch. McCann’s Irish Oatmeal is the best for this; it still comes in a beautiful collector can/tin of white, gold and black. Visit www.mccanns.ie
There are many versions of this standard pastry wrapped mashed potato entrée. This is pretty traditional and as good as any knishes off a New York street vendor. If your kids or anyone else doesn’t like onions or a pronounced onion taste, omit the sautéed onions and use the onion powder called for. This makes tons of little knishes or about 2 dozen hefty, grandma styled knishes. If you were really busy, you could even use boxed mashed potatoes for a shortcut and still have amazing knishes. You can also use storebought puff pastry or Sour Cream Mock Puff Pastry.
Date squares may seem so yesteryear but frankly, between the goodness of dried dates, the wonders of tasty/healthy oatmeal, butter and brown sugar, and a touch of orange, they are state of the art baking. Many foods are called comfort foods but this one has earned it halo. When's the last time you made date squares? It's that time again.
Warm, slightly spiced with cinnamon and oranges, this is a heart-warming brew after you rake the leaves. It features spice, apples and a few other goodies and is the most soothing exlixir you can imagine. Makes a wonderful Fall gift too.
These are great for Easter, Passover or a gourmet picnics. A Middle Eastern inspiration and a conversation piece just because they look so unique, these bold-flavored hard cooked eggs are simmered in onion skins, and tea leaves. The flavor is great but the beautiful mosaic of design that results on the egg white packaging is what sells this beauty. Serve with cheese and bread, or cold side salads. If you prefer a pinkish hued egg, check out my recipe for Pickled Eggs.
A 9 cup food processor can handle this recipe but if yours is smaller, switch to your stand mixer for this adult and kid-charming recipe. The Oreo cookie bottom bakes right into the batter making a sweet solid base and nice change of texture as you bit through these gems. Use any type of Oreos you like (Double Stuff or Chocolate or special editions). These are a delicate, black and white cupcake, studded with chopped Oreos on top and a drizzle of chocolate glaze. Great summer food or party fare for kids.
Nothing beats a tender, crispy, slightly sweet, golden corn fritter. This is a summery morsel that is a meal on its own but it is intended as as side dish or appetizer. Fresh corn is best but even canned corn comes up shining in this delicious teaser. Serve with hot sauce or go sweet with a spritz of pure maple syrup or peach chutney.
These are a must with Restaurant Style Caesar Salad.

This is one of those secret ingredient recipes that makes all the difference. These succulent (no other word) meatballs are zesty and full of bite and always get eaten before the meal for which they are intended so plan on making two batches. These are so good that 1990 people downloaded this recipe in 11 minutes last fall. It's not up to 2500 hits.
I call that a winner.
