Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Scrub the potatoes, cut them in half lengthwise, then cut each half in thirds lengthwise. You'll have 6 long wedges from each potato. Place the potatoes on a sheet pan with the olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and rosemary. With clean hands, toss all the ingredients together, making sure the potatoes are covered with oil. Spread the potatoes in a single layer with one cut side down.
Bake the potatoes for 30 to 35 minutes, turning to the other cut side after 20 minutes. Bake until lightly browned, crisp outside and tender inside. Sprinkle with salt.
If you don't have fresh rosemary, these chips are delicious with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic.
Yield: serves 6.mp and the top triangle....
Beef Rendang (Indonesia)
Put the Onions, Garlic, Chilies, Ginger, Paprika, Turmeric and water in a food processor and make into a smooth paste. Dice the meat in small pieces and mix with half the paste.
Set aside. Add the curry leaves and marinate for 30 minutes.
Put the other half of the paste into a heavy sauce pan and add the coconut milk, add Sereh powder and Lime juice and boil without the lid for about 30 minutes until mixture is reduced to half.
Add the meat mixture and return to boil.
Reduce heat and simmer uncovered, stirring regularly for a further hour till the meat is tender.
When the mixture becomes to dry, add some water.
Serve with white boiled rice.
Basic Butter Cake:
Brush two 8 inch sandwich tins with melted butter. Set oven temperature to moderate (350 degrees F/180 degrees C)
Cream shortening (butter or margarine) and sugar with vanilla until mixture is white, light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the lightly beaten eggs. If using an electric mixer add eggs one at a time and beat well after each.
Sift flour and salt three times and then fold into creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with flour. When mixture is smooth pour into prepared tins. (Beating at this stage will cause tunnels through the cake).
Lightly smooth top and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a fine skewer will come out clean. Cool on wire racks. Fill and ice as liked.
Note: This is an Australian recipe, so it's in metric measure (measure by weight instead of volume).
1. Place the cake in the refrigerator or freezer for about 1/2 hour or so before icing. Cut into squares.
2. Sift icing sugar and cocoa together.
3. Make into a smooth icing with boiling water, butter and vanilla.
4. Pierce squares of cake with a fork and dip into chocolate icing for a few seconds, then toss into the coconut. If the icing becomes a little thick, heat over hot water or add a drop or two extra hot water to the icing.
5. Best if allowed to mature in a sealed container for several hours before serving.
Periodically while cooking meat....
Use any type of vegetables, cook until suace is thickened.
1. melt butter.
cook onion util browned and add a pinch of water.
add garlic, curry, salt and pepper.
2. add broth, water, pumpkin...mix well.
Reduce het to low - cook, stir occasionally 20 mins - stir in coconut milk.
Simmer over boiling water...
whisk eggs, sugar, vannilla bean seeds. Mxture should reach 140 degrees.
hold at this temperature for 2-3 minutes.
allow the mixture to thicken.
Stir this mixture into the milk. Stir in the cinnamon.
whip cream and put on top of drinks.
Garnish with nutmeg and cinnamon.
Heat for 20 minutes.
You mix together into a dough.
put a damp towel over it and let it sit in a warm place.
Once it has risen, roll out pizza squares.
Base should be of cheese ~ one whole packet of grated cheese or a whole block of cheese.
Toppings are up to you....
Mix thoroughly. Then use a spaetzle making machine to drop the dumplings into boiling water. They should rise to the top.
Strain them and shake some salt onto them too.
If you can make the spaetzle, then all you do is add half a block of tasty cheddar and 1/2 an onion chopped, AND melt altogether in an iron pan.
bring milk - rice - 1/2 cup -1 tbl spoon of vanilla sugar mixture to a boil, in a pot, on the stove.
Then pour in rest of sugar and vanilla.
You must watch over this constantly so that the rice does not burn at the bottom !
When the rice pudding is like syrup in texture, taste it ~ it should not be crunchy !
Variations include adding rum, saltanas (raisins) and pineapple.
Dunk bread in the egg beaten, milk, sugar, vanilla mixture.
As an option, some maple syrup could be mixed in as well.
Then fry in a pan, using the butter as a layer so it doesn't wreck the pan, on both sides until brown.
Do a second time for the other piece of bread and blah the meal with nutmeg and pour maple syrup over it.
Boil the milk on its own ! Until it starts to frothe (scorched look ;-) )
Use a blender and blend the egg, salt, sugar, essence, cornstarch until the mixture has a frothy look.
Pour milk into this mixture and blend for a bit (< 1 minute).
Pour through a strainer to get rid of the bubbles (for consistency, if you don't care about the look then avoid this part) into the ramikens.
Put the ramikens into a tray of hot water.
bake at 400 F for 10 minutes, then 300 F for 20 minutes.
Pull out and let it sit on the counter for 10 minutes.
Put in fridge for at least an hour to two hours.
I made this recipe 6 times before I understood the custard.
You should not heat the mixture altogether in a pot, because the egg part turns into scramble egg and when baking you'll discover the bottom is too tough.
You must scorch the milk on its own.
Do not overbake the custard. It is better to underbake than over bake. If you have a larger quantity, be wary...if a knife slides in and out clean, this means the custard is over cooked.
Use the salt to amplify the flavour. I omitted this and the custard originally tasted bland.
The use of alternating temperatures in cooking custard is used first to set the outer layer in a sort of mold and the lowering should set the inside parts (longer temperature without overcooking the outerlayer).
I alternated the quantities of the ingredients and I found the more cornstarch the tougher the dish, the more milk the weaker the custard.
I used egg beaters (substitute for egg) without the alternating temperatures and the custard came out smooth but unset. It tasted great but didn't have the consistency needed for a custard tart.

Poppyseed Roll Coffee Cake
For the Filling:
For the Egg Wash:
Combine water, yeast and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
Scald the milk until heated but not boiling. Stir in the butter until melted. Add egg yolks, lemon zest and salt then combine in the bowl of a mixer with the yeast. Stir in the flour a little at a time to make a soft, sticky dough. Knead on medium speed until a smooth, soft dough forms, about 8 minutes. Cover and let rise until doubled.
Combine the poppy seed filling, cream, raisins, cinnamon and lemon in a small bowl.
Flatten the dough on a well-floured surface. Roll it out into a 12-inch x 20-inch rectangle. Starting from the longest edge, spread one half of the dough with one cup of the poppy mixture. Starting from the longest edge, fold over the dough just to cover the filling. Spread the remaining filling evenly over the remaining dough. Start rolling the dough from the longest edge and roll it up into a tight log. (Alternately, you may roll from the shorter, 12-inch edge, to make a shorter, plump loaf.)
Place dough on a greased baking sheet. Brush the dough with egg wash. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise until doubled, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Bake in a preheated 350ºF oven until well browned, about 35 to 45 minutes
