Biscuit Bread Pudding

It can be difficult to get around to making bread.  Then with all the yeast (with the gluten and sugar) it really can be detrimental to sensitive systems.  However, if you can still consume wheat products, biscuits are pretty manageable as far as prep time is concerned.  If the recipe is good, you'll end up with a nice medium weight to light biscuit.

Biscuits have become a real favorite around here.  My wife prefers I made at least a double batch so they can have some for snack-time and/or some to save for bread pudding.  Bread pudding made with biscuits instead of bread has become our family favorite for both savory AND sweet bread puddings.

Have you ever had bread puding made with biscuits?

This is an amazing piece of software that will get your recipes organized like you wouldn't believe. The Cook'n Recipe organizer allows you to pull recipes from just about anywhere - webpages, blog posts, Pinterest, scanned recipes, word or notepad documents, even a picture of a recipe - and import it into the program for easy organization! You can also purchase any of their large selection of cookbooks to add directly into your program.

But more than simply organizing your recipes, Cook'n does so much more. Have some veggies you need to get used up before they spoil? Use the search function to find recipes that call for them. You can plan out your menus days, weeks, or even MONTHS in advance - and Cook'n will generate a shopping list for you based on your menu plan. It even organizes your shopping list items by aisle and estimates how much your list is going to cost! You can also click for nutritional information on any recipe - Cook'n has nutritional facts from the labels of over 10,000 food products. You can even compare different brands to choose the best option for you and your family.

The Cook'n program also comes with free companion apps for your Android, iPhone, iPad, or Kindle. Rather than have to print out a recipe (or drag your laptop into the kitchen!), you can just view that night's recipe on your smartphone or tablet sitting on the kitchen counter.

Make sure you check out Tara's full review of the Cook'n Recipe Organizer!

One lucky reader is going to win a download of this great program to get organized in the kitchen. The giveaway will run from February 22, 2014 to March 7, 2014 at 11:59pm EST and is open to U.S. and Canadian residents ages 18 and older.

Cowboy Candy; The Only Candy Tough Enough for a Cowboy

I tried some Cowboy Candy about a week ago.  I was amazed and surprised at how good it was.  Hot stuff is something I really enjoy.  I also like sweet stuff.  And, of course, I'm a pretty tough guy.  So this combo is awesome.

Although I enjoy a complicated recipe just as much as the next Chef, I decided to see if I could come up with something similar to what I tried, but not require as many ingredients.  I'm pretty pleased with what I came up with.  I've come up with a few spin-off recipes as well.  I'll work on having some photos for you of the main marvel as well as some of the others in which I've used it.

I think you will be impressed.

Recipe
6 cups sugar
1 gallon jalapeno slices, drained (reserve 1 cup of the juice)
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup reserved juice from jalapenos

In a large pot, combine the sugar and vinegar and the reserved juice from the jalapenos.  At medium heat, bring mixture to 190 degrees.  Put jalapenos in a heat-proof container.  Remove the sugar mixture from the heat and pour over the drained jalapenos.  Set aside to cool.

When it's reached room temperature, pick up a spoon and enjoy.  If you like spicy and sweet stuff, you're really going to love this.  You won't want to stop eating it.  I almost couldn't tear myself away.

By the way, there's some pretty cool stuff out there, only a Google search away, about why this stuff was named Cowboy Candy.  I'd be happy to share what I've found if you like.  Just let me know.

Alternative Pancakes

Have you ever tried making pancakes without flour?  What if you couldn't use any grain?

My wife used the Simple Carbohydrate Diet to heal her damaged GI tract, so she's made lots of gluten-free AND grain-free pancakes.  They can be amazingly tastey.  How?

She used navy beans.  I'll have to share more about that sometime soon.  Let me know if you want to hear more about that.  If you do and tell me, I'm more likely to get a post out about it sooner than I have planned.

Day Three of Making Amends

This is the last time I'm going to write about making amends for being neglectful on Valentine's Day.  That doesn't mean I'm not going to do any more stuff for my lady.  I'm just not going to write about it here, after today.

Hopefully you've taken my advice and washed the dishes (probably should do that more than once) and maybe you made your lady some pancakes with special sauce today based on my suggestions yesterday... I hope so (make sure you tell me how you both liked that breakfast treat)!

So, today... today we need to do what we should've done for Valentine's Day.  Whatever you do should be really specific to the lady you love.  For help determining what you should do, please refer to the post I shared pre-V Day.

I'm pretty sure that post is really the problem, actually.  I mean, my wife has never seemed to mind that I didn't do anything for V. Day before.  I think asking for advice for that post did me in... I think she thought I was thinking about doing something special.  Too much thinking, man!  Well, live and learn, right?
