Brown Sugar Stuffed Apples Recipe




What You Will Need:


Three-quarters cup of oats

Three-quarters cup of flour

Two-thirds cup of packed light brown sugar

One tsp of ground cinnamon

One-half tsp of ground ginger

Pinch of kosher salt

One stick of diced cold unsalted butter

Four Braeburn or Fuji apples

Four tsp of honey



What To Do:

First, get a bowl and combine all of your dry ingredients and the diced butter. Now, rub your mixture quickly between your finger tips until small moist clumps are formed in a loose and sandy mixture. Refrigerate your mixture while preparing your apples.

Then, preheat your oven to Three-hundred Fifty degrees. Get your apples and cut off a small layer from the bottom of each apple to make a flat, stable bottom surface. Take a small paring knife and cut a cylindrical shaped cone out the top of the apple, moving about 1-inch outside of the core. Think in the manner of removing the top of a pumpkin when carving a Jack O’Lantern. Remove the apple top and discard. Using a melon baller or a teaspoon, scoop the remaining core and seeds. Make sure not to puncture the base of the apple.

Place your apples on to a baking sheet or pie dish and fill each with your teaspoon of honey. Spoon in the mixture, packing lightly until it is heaped and overflowing over the sides of your apples.

Place the apples on the top or middle rack, and let bake for forty minutes or until your filling is golden brown and the tip of a paring knife can be inserted into the side of the apple with little or no resistance. Let your apples sit for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Low Carb Foods Clam Chowder Recipe

These days everyone is trying to be healthy while still being able to enjoy great tasting foods. Here is a healthy twist on a classic New England recipe, low carb foods clam chowder. For additional references, see sources sited below. Do not forget to come back to find more great low carb seafood recipes.



Low Carb Foods Clam Chowder



Low Carb Clam Chowder Recipe


What You Need:

3 strips of thickly sliced bacon

1 med onion (chopped into small pieces)

2 med stalks of celery (chopped into small pieces)

2 cloves of pressed or minced garlic

1/4 tsp of black pepper

3/4 tsp of Old Bay Seasoning*

Low-carb thickener

3/4 cup of heavy cream

3/4 cup of unsweetened soy milk**

1 cup of clam juice

3 cups of cauliflower (chopped)

2 6½ oz cans of chopped clams

1 tsp of dried thyme or 1 Tbsp of fresh thyme

2 Tbsp of fresh parsley (minced)


* If you like your soup a bit spicy you can use 1 tsp.

** If you prefer to not use soy, you can use regular milk, half and half, or water.


What To Do:

First, chop your bacon into little cubes and cook them until they are crisp. I prefer to cook them in the soup pot. Then take out your bacon (I find that a slotted spoon works best) and pour out all but a Tbsp of that rendered fat. Next you’ll want to fry your celery and onion until it starts to soften. Then add garlic and your spices EXCEPT for the thyme. Stir everything and cook it for a good minute. Now add your liquids and stir it. Then you’ll need to add your low-carb thickener at this point. I really like adding it slowly. I shake it through a strainer and also whisk it in to keep it from clumping. You’ll want to stop a bit before it is as thick as you like it. It keeps thickening as it continues to heat. Then turn off the heat when it begins to simmer.

Next, you’ll boil, steam or microwave your cauliflower until it is fork tender, and drain. Now add the thyme, parsley, cauliflower, bacon and clams to the mixture. Bring up the heat a bit again until it is just at a simmer.

This recipe yields 6 servings.

Nutritional Info: Each serving has 6g effective carbohydrate plus 2g of fiber (not including the low-carb thickener), 12g of protein, and 226 calories. If you used half and half add 30 calories and 1g of carbohydrate. If you used milk, see the Carb Counts in the Milk and Milk Substitutes.

So I gave it a try and WOW, I honestly didn’t think I’d like it as much as I did! So to all the skeptics reading this, come on over to the light, it is delicious!

The Best Recipes of French

Despite new trends, hype and marketing, tradition has never been stronger. In France, good food still means authentic cooking by using natural products from diverse regions. This is how we celebrate human being by offering the best food to all our senses.
For more details go to:  www.tailgating-recipe.com cooking home-made food and eating at the table make your appetite grow stronger. The challenge is to combine ingredients together to get the best taste out of them. However anyone from anywhere can explore the world of french cooking. To start with, let’s find out what french people enjoy to eat.

Here are the top 10 most popular recipes in France:

Roast Chicken
Indeed roast chicken is not a notorious french recipe but cooked everywhere around the world from Asia and Africa to America. However it is the most popular french dish. Roast chicken is not stuffed inside. The secret is to baste the poultry several times during roasting with butter and cooking oil and to add an onion in the roasting pan. Roast chicken is traditionally served with potatoes and green beans.

Boeuf bourguignon
The most famous beef stew in France. Boeuf bourguignon is a traditional recipe from Burgundy. A recipe that French people use to cook at least once every winter. The beef meat is cooked in a red wine sauce, obviously a red wine from Burgundy. Bacon, onions, mushrooms and carrots add flavor to the recipe. But thyme, garlic and beef stock are essential to cook a good boeuf bourguignon.

Mussels mariniere
A typical summer recipe very popular along the Atlantic and Mediterranean coast. Mussels are fresh and cooked in a white wine sauce with parsley, thyme, bay leaf and onion. For help visit: www.apples-recipes.com it takes only 5 minutes to cook a tasteful mussel’s mariniere. The secret is to season carefully the meal and to discard any mussels that don’t look good enough.

Sole meuniere
Although sole is an expensive fish, the taste is so elegant that it is considered as the noblest fish. Sole meuniere is a recipe from Normandy. The fish is cooked in a butter sauce with a little bit of flour and lemon juice. Sole is traditionally served with rice or green vegetables.

Pot au feu
A typical family meal coming once again from Normandy. Pot au feu is a boiled beef with pork, chicken and vegetables. It takes about 4 hours an a half to cook as the beef has to simmer slowly to extract all its flavor. Pot au feu is also called Potee Normande in France.

Quite similar to the german sauerkraut, the french sauerkraut called choucroute comes from Alsace. However the French recipe can be traced back to 6 centuries ago! Sauerkraut is a fermented cabbage. Commonly sauerkraut includes sausages, pork knuckle and bacon. Two essential ingredients are Alsatian white wine and juniper berries.

Veal stew
Called Blanquette de veal in France, this is another stew recipe from Normandy. The veal meat simmers in white sauce – as Blanquette from Blanc stands for white in French – with mushrooms and onions. The white sauce is made of egg yolks, whipping cream and lemon juice. Veal stew is usually served with rice.

Lamb navarin
Another stew but this one is made of lamb meat. It is also called spring lamb as it comes with green vegetables available in spring. Navarin comes from navet which stands for turnips in French. Other ingredients are tomatoes, lamb stock and carrots. This stew takes less time to simmer than any other.

A strange recipe that English people often confuse with their traditional breakfast! A traditional meal from south west of France. Each village has its own recipe but it always includes beans and meats. Cassoulet is a rich combination of white beans and depending on the village lamb, pork, mutton or sausage meat. Cassoulet is the cornerstone of the French paradox study describing why people from south west of France suffer less than others from infarcts.

Bouillabaisse is closely linked with the city of Marseille on the Mediterranean coast. The recipe is a fish soup from local fish and seafood products including crabs, scorpion fish, monk fish and others. Provencal herbs and olive oil are essential. For a long time, the recipe was a secret jealously kept by the people from Marseille.
