Whole Wheat Cinnamon-Raisin Bread

https://youtu.be/ggGh3g2WKtA This is the raisin bread I've been searching for all my life.  This is so exquisite, so soft, so lovely, and incredibly healthy as well.  It's not just whole wheat, it's also got lots of grains in it as well, making it one of those super breads.  Once you…

Mexican Beef Soup

  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2BvCB2niBM&index=1&list=PL8JR24XiMN4gPXwjDe1JyUH6wF3ZAgJw4 This is a great soup that pretty easy to make, and it's not thickened in the least.  It's got a lovely piece of really tender roast beef  in the bowl along with rice, or potatoes and any veg you like.  The broth is really beefy and you can…

Horchata

https://youtu.be/tc7cyghk9qc Horchata is a beautiful Mexican rice drink that lovely and refreshing, and it's so simple to make you do yourself a disservice if you don't try this. It's also incredibly easy... no cooking necessary. This is another one of those recipes that's more of an idea than a strict…

Buttered Potatoes

https://youtu.be/Gq-RoLv8mN4 This is one of the best recipes you'll ever make and it's so simple I almost feel stupid writing it down.  But this is so overlooked by most cooks because it's so simple.  Everyone's so busy looking for new and exciting ways to cook things, that they've forgotten how…

Lemon Curd

https://youtu.be/tUZ_3rFfDK8 Lemon curd is really a type of pudding usually made out of citrus, but I've also seen cranberry, mango and the like.  But the ones that are the most popular are lemon, lime, and orange... the tart citruses.  That said, it's definitely kind of a pudding, but it's also…

Grilled Ribs

https://youtu.be/2xApEq145L8 Today we're making grilled pork ribs.  Only we don't do it like so many others do.  I don't like to smoke my ribs for hours and hours.  I prefer to grill them for a short time to get a lovely grill tasts as well as a mild char and…

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

https://youtu.be/uu_sBh05x5s   This recipe makes DELICIOUS dough, incredible cookies loved by all. They’re cakey, not too rich, and very fluffy. One of the MAJOR keys to good cookies is to have the butter at room temperature (which is actually slightly cooler than a Texas room): the butter should still keep its…

Chouquettes

https://youtu.be/f2QW2gYqlhA   A chouquette is a lovely little French pastry.  It's easy to make, and very lovely in its simplicity.  A chouquette is really just a ball of pate a choux that's been sprinkled with pearl sugar and baked.  And while sugar is often used, you can also use mini…

Pate a Choux

https://youtu.be/Q8bQYdslwrU Pate a choux (pronounced "paht ah shoe") is a staple of French pastry and extremely versatile so I'm filing it under basics because I believe every cook should know how to make this basic pastry.  It's used to make éclairs, profiteroles, and a host of other things.  It can be…

Another Great Bread Pudding

https://youtu.be/n54ahEh5XTc I love this method for bread pudding because the unsoaked bread on the outside gives it a great contrast both in taste and texture to the creamy custard inside.  You're going to love this version.  The rest of this post is mostly like the last one because there's not…
