Posted for [ profile] venivincere who just asked for soup recipe, and I figured I share with everyone.

Every New Year's my sister has a 'theme' of a particular country, and they and their friends spend the entire evening cooking dishes from that country. It's pretty brilliant. You each make a dish and then eat and drink for hours. It was sooooo my thing. While I was visiting this year, their country of choice was Morocco. Each dish was amazing, but this was my fav.

This is a recipe for [ profile] chantefable who requested: fish dish with no wheat, tomatoes, milk/cream, or potatoes involved; I hope this suits. It was incredible hard to think of something that fit all that. I cheated a little. LOL.

Drive-by gifting!

A recipe for [ profile] treacle_tartlet who asked for Pecan Pie. This is a super easy recipe that freezes really well. I’ve also included a huge recipe for pie dough (great for feeding an army! Or if you want to make pie dough only once every 6 months... )

I just made this tonight and it was so delish. And quite easy. Very similar to the Amatriciana Recipe I posted a few weeks ago, but a lot less work. :D

Penne with Pancetta, Tomatoes and Vodka )

The recipe comes from the Food and Drink magazine that is available free here at Liquor Stores in Ontario. The recipes in these magazines are TO DIE FOR. SRSLY.

[ profile] delorispea requested a pie.

This is another Christmas recipe. We have it Christmas Day, after dinner. It goes very well with a nice strong coffee. It is very sweet (obviously) and should be cut into thin slices (something like a two-finger width at the crust).

And look a picture! Yum! The recipe there is not the same as below, but that is what the end result looks like.

Even if something like this isn't your thing, do read the recipe for the total lulz of how decadent this is. But really, it's quite delish. :D

Tarte au sucre (Sugar Pie)
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups white sugar
2 cups whipping cream
bring above to a boil in a pot, then remove from heat and stir in:

1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Corn syrup

Add to an uncovered pie crust. Bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees

eta: I always wondered if 'Treacle Tart' was somewhat similar to this? Anyone?

And on that note, we conclude Maggie's 'gift' recipes for 2009. All 22 recipes can be found under my recipes tag.

If you requested a recipe and I somehow missed you, please let me know. Thanks to everyone the commented and/or tried out these recipes. I had a lot of fun sharing them with you.

[ profile] stakebait asked for something to try out a new crockpot.
I don't cook a lot in my crockpot mostly because I'm really not a morning person so thinking about dinner 8hrs before I have to serve it hurts my head. LOL. But this is one thing I do really enjoy. It's a simple 'Roast Chicken' type of thing, nothing fancy. It can be made in the oven as well.

Crockpot Chicken )

Enjoy! :D

[ profile] queenb23more asked: How about your favorite breakfast recipe?

My favourite breakfast gets made every Sunday after Church. It's nothing fancy, but yeah... it's still my favourite, so here you go:

A simple breakfast sandwich )


Only two more recipes to go. :D

[ profile] isisanubis requested: baking. Here is something slightly more healthy than the brownies I posted a couple days ago. :D

Banana Bread
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3-4 very soft bananas (you can always stick overly-ripe bananas in the freezer so that they are ready for when you want to make this – just peel them when they are still mostly frozen!)
½ cup vegetable oil
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1tsp salt

combine all ingredients well. Add to greased loaf pan or muffin tins.

bake at 350 for 1 hr for loaf

Or 30 minutes if you make muffins

optional – add chocolate chips to make the kids (and adults) love them just a little bit more!


Oof! sorry I am so behind on comments. :/

on a note of weirdness: I got a calendar in the mail yesterday (one of those Re/Max agents advertising themselves). Pretty standard stuff, but the house on the calendar was MY HOUSE! WTF? MY HOUSE! o.O Has Edward Cullen made stalking that cool? Because I was pretty creeped out. On the plus side, the kids think it's damn neat to have a pic of our house all laminated and calender-like. Still, weirdness. o.O *peeks out front window and looks around for cameras*

[ profile] romaine24 asked for 'my holy shit! I need to make something quick!!!' recipe. And I've been thinking on it a lot. Mostly, those days where I've really dropped the ball on dinner means I'm searching through the freezer for something. I get 'gifted' with lots of prepared food from both my mom and my MIL. *loves them* so yeah, that's were I turn. BUT! If I have a bit of time and want to make it looked like I actually cooked something, I go with this:

Chicken Piccata )

BUT!!! I think I might have already given you that recipe! So... here's a bonus.

Homemade Irish Cream (actual Irish people on my flist? please don't kill me if this is a sacrilege!)
3 eggs
1 1/2 tbsp powdered chocolate (or like, chocolate milk mix)
1 can Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
250 ml whipping cream
1 cup of Irish Whiskey

Mix in blender for 5 minutes.
Keep in the fridge for up to a week

[ profile] entrenous88 requested a favourite brownie recipe, and despite this being the 17th recipe I posted this month, it is the one I was most anxious to share because they are BLOW YOUR MIND AMAZING.

I used to make these to bring to the office when I had a major announcement to make. I call them my 'how to make friends and influence people' brownies. Not the quickest brownie recipe, but the results are well worth it. :D

Double Fudge Cream Cheese Brownies )

Go... make friends. ;)

I forgot to post a recipe today!!! a wee bit distracted, sorry!

[ profile] khateh wanted a favourite potato dish. We have potato with nearly every meal, and it's rarely anything fancy. So here's my fall back, make twice a week, do it in my sleep potato dish. :D

Paprika Potatoes )

[ profile] alovelycupoftea requested ... something that goes with tea. :D

This is two recipes in one. The first is a very simple tea biscuit recipe that is great on its own, and the second is Strawberry Cobbler that uses the tea biscuit.

[ profile] wwmrsweasleydo asked for: something Canadian? A vegetable dish, please?
And I honestly cannot think of a recipe that is a 'Canadian' vegetable dish that we eat. So I'm going with the first part. This dish is about as Canadian as you can get. :D

Réveillon – or how we celebrate Christmas
cut for boring backstory )
On to the recipe:

Tourtière (Meat pie) )
Bon apetit!
