MIL said it was fine to share recipe!Ingredients:Dough:-4 cups flour-1 tsp salt-1/3 cup olive oil thats meant to be a third!-1/2 cup cold water and thats meant to be a half!-4 eggs

Filling:-1/4lb supresatta sliced thin and cut into small pieces

-1/4lb proscuitto cut into small pieces

-1/2 a piece of pepperoni sliced and cut into small pieces

-1lb ricotta

-7 large eggs

-1/2lb cubed mozzarella

-3 tbsp chopped fresh parsley-1 cup romano cheese

Directions:I dont have the recipe to make the dough, MIL said that “everyone knows how to make dough, just put the ingredients!” I dont know how to make dough but hopefully you guys will!!! When I told her this, she let out this big sigh like she was terribly dissapointed in me!!! Mix ricotta, mozzarella and romano cheeses in a bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add all chopped meats to cheese mixture, along with the parsley and blend well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Line the bottom of a 10 inch pie plate with half the dough; pour in the filling and top with the other half of the dough mixture. Make a small eggwash to brush over the top of the crust. Bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes, then reduce temperature down to 350 degrees for about an hour or until the top of the pie is golden brown. MIL said this recipe could probably make two pies, and that they keep very well.   Share on twitterShare on facebookShare on emailShare on favorites 10-15-2010, 03:25 PM   #15minniebethI count on yall to keep me up to date ;Im ok going up, just cant go down…  Join Date: Feb 2006Location: columbus, ohioPosts: 7,463Awesome, Katieinwonderland!

Buffalo Wings Recipe : Alton Brown : Recipes : Food Network


Place a 6-quart saucepan with a steamer basket and 1-inch of water in the bottom, over high heat, cover and bring to a boil.Remove the tips of the wings and discard or save for making stock. Using kitchen shears, or a knife, separate the wings at the joint. Place the wings into the steamer basket, cover, reduce the heat to medium and

steam for 10 minutes.

Remove the wings from the basket and carefully pat dry. Lay the wings out on a cooling rack set in a half sheet pan lined with paper towels and place in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Replace the paper towels with parchment paper. Roast on the middle rack of the oven for

20 minutes. Turn the wings over and

cook another 20 minutes

or until meat is cooked through and the skin is golden brown.While the chicken is roasting, melt the butter in a small bowl along with the garlic. Pour this along with hot sauce and salt into a bowl large enough to hold all of the chicken and stir to combine.Remove the wings from the oven and transfer to the bowl and toss with the sauce. Serve warm.

Ореховки « Приказки с канела


2 чаени чаша смлени орехи;

2 чаени чаши пудра захар;

4 белтъка;

1-2 чаени лъжички какао (за тен, както отбелязва Пепчо).

Загрявам фурната на 120 градуса.

Разбивам белтъците на сняг с щипка сол като постепенно добавям пудрата захар (поне това научих, че не мога да я кльопна в белтъците от самото начало и да докарам наистина твърд сняг). Внимателно обърквам с орехите.

Покривам тава с хартия за печене и с лъжица изсипвам от сместа (чаена, ако имате нерви, аз използвах супена, за да е по-бързо). Гледам да оставя два пръста разстояние между ореховките. Мятам във фурната за около 45 до 60 минути, за да изсъхнат добре. Мерилото за готовност на подобни целувчести сладки е като пипнете с палец да не оставя следи.
