Recipe: Pineapple Lime Chicken

Posted by Andru Edwards
Categories: Dinner, Recipes, Fruit, Meat, Poultry, Carribean, Baking,

Chicken is a great meat because it holds the flavor of spices really well, while maintaining the original flavor of the chicken itself on the inside. This makes it a great base for recipes like this Pineapple Lime Chicken, where we are using a couple of different fruit acids, along with a few spices, with the end result being a nice, island-y dish. To make this one a little easier come preparation time, you can …

Quick Palmiers Recipe

Posted by Jenny Lewis
Categories: Dessert, Quick Meals, Recipes, Sugar, France, Baking,

File these under “Super Easy, Still Impressive” - palmiers (light, sweet puff pastry cookies) are criminally cinchy to make and an impressive and tasty way to end a meal on a high (and not too heavy) note. I love to eat these with chocolate sauce or whipped cream, and every once in a while I get a little crazy and add some cinnamon to the sugar. Ingredients: 1 cup sugar 1 sheet of puff pastry …

Recipe: Summer Berry Muffins

It’s time for fresh berries! One of my favorite ever weekend breakfasts (okay, most weekend breakfasts are my favorite) is a nice warm blueberry muffin. Or a few. And yes, there are plenty of mixes and bakeries around who will hook my breakfast up right for just a little bit of time and money, but I’m still firmly of the belief that everything tastes better when it comes from my personal oven. These muffins are …

Cinco de Mayo Dessert: Mexican Chocolate Icebox cookies

Cakes are great, pies are good, anything gooey and sweet is fantastic. But cookies? So underrated. Cookies are, in my opinion, the best way to end a party. Put a big plate of cookies out at the end of a party and people will eat them up! I made these Mexican Chocolate Icebox cookies the first time a couple years ago, and they’ve been the sleeper hit in my repertoire. 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour …

Cookbook Review: CakeLove: How To Bake Cakes From Scratch

Warren Brown’s first foray into cookbook writing, “CakeLove: How to Bake Cakes from Scratch”, was published on May 1st, and like many dessert lovers and home bakers, I could barely contain my enthusiasm when I finally got to plunk down my $27.50 for the oversized tome, full of beautiful photographs by Renee Comet. If the name Warren Brown sounds vaguely familiar to you, it may be because you’ve seen him on Oprah or Today, or …

Recipe: Birthday Brownies

I have a friend who requests one thing for his birthday every year - brownies. After a few trial and error batches with various recipes, I discovered this recipe two years ago and have never looked back - the combination of easy preparation and a texture that falls somewhere between a cake and a piece of fudge make this recipe a winner. Ingredients: 6 oz 70% bittersweet chocolate, chopped 3/4 cup cold butter, cut into …

Recipe: Copycat Red Lobster Biscuits

Seafood is not that big a thing around Gear Live’s virtual offices. And while I can’t speak for the other editors, I’ve been known to hit up the neighborhood Red Lobster solely for the biscuits. Unfortunately, the staff at the ol’ RL didn’t take kindly on a person who goes in alone and has nothing but biscuits, a side salad and water. That left me trying to recreate the little starchy wonders at home. Ingredients: …

Ranch Oyster Crackers Recipe

Posted by Jenny Lewis
Categories: Appetizers, Snacks, Recipes, Baking,

Some people can take or leave oyster crackers. Often overlooked when they arrive with your soup or salad, I say that these little hexagonal nuggets of salty, starchy goodness are completely underrated. This recipe, passed to me by my mom via her godmother, has been not only a party hit but a comfort food when I’m craving something savory.  ...
