232  Naan in Recipes and Cooking Tips by MissingWillow on: January 13, 2013 08:16:36 AM
I love Indian food so much!  Even though naan is getting more and more easy to find at the grocery store, I always make my own.  It's so fragrant and soft and yummy.  This recipe is adapted from one by Madhur Jaffrey. 



Here are the ingredients:
2/3 cup warm milk (110 degrees)
2 tsp. sugar
1 package dry yeast
3 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
2 Tbsp. canola oil
2/3 cup plain yogurt
1 beaten egg



Start by combining the warm milk, yeast and 1 tsp. of the sugar.  Set aside for a few minutes until it becomes frothy then add to the remaining ingredients and mix together.  Knead it for 10 minutes and put in a lightly oiled bowl.  Cover and let sit to rise for an hour.


Here's what it looks like after rising.  At this point, you should preheat your oven to 500 degrees F.


Turn it out onto a floured surface and cut it into as many naans as you like.  This recipe makes 6 large or 12 small breads.


Roll them to about 1/4 inch thick.


Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.  They go into your 500 degree oven for just 3 minutes. 



Look closely, you'll see they have puffed up a bit.  Switch your oven from bake to broil.  Once your broiler is hot, put your cookie sheet back in the oven on the highest rack for just 30 seconds to brown.  Watch them carefully!


Perfect!

234  Cinnamon Rolls in Recipes and Cooking Tips by MissingWillow on: December 30, 2012 08:51:32 AM

This recipe came from a Family Circle magazine probably 15 or 20 years ago.  It was billed as the T.J. Cinnamon's recipe.  It is so very good, I hope you'll try it!

Start by dissolving two packages of yeast in 1/2 cup of warm to the touch water (110 degrees F.) and 1/2 teaspoon sugar.  Let it stand for at least 5 minutes to get foamy.  In a mixing bowl, combine 3 cups all purpose flour, 1/3 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon salt.   At low speed, gradually add in 1 cup warm milk, 1/3 cup salad oil, 2 eggs and the yeast mixture until well blended.  Slowly add in another 1.5 cups flour and knead the dough for 10 minutes.  I knead mine with a dough hook in my stand mixture but you could knead it by hand on a floured surface.



The dough is smooth and elastic after kneading.  At this point, put it in a bowl with about a tbsp. of oil in it, cover with a clean towel and let it rise for an hour.



While the dough is rising, make the filling.  You'll need 1/2 stick of butter at room temperature, 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon.



Just mix all ingredients until they come together.



Here's the dough after rising for an hour.  Turn it onto a floured surface.



Roll the dough into a rectangle approx. 18 by 10 inches.



Spread the cinnamon filling on top then roll it up on the long side.  You'll end up with an 18 inch long log of cinnamon filled dough.  Cut the dough log into 14 equal slices.



Place the slices into greased 9 inch round cake pans.  This recipe makes two pans.



Cover and let rise for about 45 minutes.  Here's what they look like after rising.



Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes (until golden brown).



I remove them from the cake pan after about 10 minutes and glaze with a mixture of 1 cup confectioner's sugar, 1 Tbsp. milk and 1 tsp. vanilla.   I hope you'll give them at try!

235  Re: Craft Your Daily Reflections--based on Leafcutter Designs Sky Scarf concept in Craftalongs by MissingWillow on: December 17, 2012 10:48:37 AM
I decided to do a small quilt.  Here are the sky fabrics I have so far.  I also decided for each holiday, I will not include a sky observation.  Instead I will include some pattern related to the holiday.  That way, there will be random splashes of holiday color throughout.  So far I've got Easter, Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Fourth of July and Halloween covered.  I'm on the hunt for something for New Years and Groundhog day.   Smiley

236  Cornbread Sausage Cranberry Apple Walnut Stuffing in Recipes and Cooking Tips by MissingWillow on: November 26, 2012 09:21:07 AM
Here is my holiday stuffing recipe.  My family loves it!


I start with cornbread stuffing mix.  I read the back of the package for the recipe (amounts of butter and chicken broth to add) then start gathering other goodies...


I dump the stuffing mix in a huge bowl then crumble up and fry a package of sausage.  Once I drain off the fat, the sausage is added to the stuffing mix. 


An entire bag of cranberries are rinsed, picked over, and added raw to the stuffing mix.


I mince and saute shallots, 3 stalks of celery and a few sliced mushrooms in the amount of butter the stuffing bag calls for.  Add to the mix.


Peel and slice an apple, add it to the mix.  Once I have all of the add-ins, I stir in the amount of chicken broth called for on the stuffing package. 


In my house, half of the stuffing gets walnuts.  Bake for 30-40 minutes at 350.
