Those cranberry skins can get in the way of enjoying the cranberries. So what do we do? Make a pudding-like sauce that smooths the edges making the entire cranberry experience one to savor. Cilantro – in ground seed form and fresh leaves – now becomes something to talk about. You could call it the Halfway Cranberry Sauce – both jellied and whole in the same elegant sauce!
Before taste-testing I only had one question for Steve. Muffin or cupcake? What do you think? Upon tasting he said, “a muffcake”. So, MuffCake it is! I agree.
Not a pudding cake, not an air-stuffed bakery bought cake. Homemade, dry enough, moist enough, dense enough, flavorful enough, whereby you don’t taste the flour, crispy enough. Buckwheat adds something; I just don’t know what – yet!
Steve added, “and P.S. it tastes great.” Steve already warned me to put his MuffCakes aside for today’s game as the Browns take on the undefeated Patriots at Foxboro!
On his way out to the grocery store I hollered to him, “you better get some Tofutti cream cheese to have with them”.
A variation of Harvard beets, this version when combined with dried cherries and berries in a sauce of apple cider and ginger beer raises the status of this once traditional side dish to a necessary elegance! It not only completes the meal; it completes every other dish in the meal!
Ever wonder why the people over at Kraft foods didn’t expand the JELL-O brand? They make a gelatin, a pudding and a pie filling for cream pies. For three separate desserts. Why didn’t anyone try to combine the qualities of gelatin with the qualities of pudding? Well, tradition never stopped AFC Global from experimenting with a new concept. Here are the results! Combining a juice with the cream produces a gelatin-like cream. You don’t need the actual gelatin nor agar to produce something unique yet familiar and enjoyable!
Oh, and served in a carob cookie cider pie crust! Topped with dairy free whip cream!
