Hot Cross Buns Recipe for Easter and Lent

Monday April 14, 2014

Hot Cross Buns are a traditional favorite for Lent and Good Friday before Easter, but they are enjoyable year-round. These yeast rolls are studded with currants or raisins and hazelnuts, then topped with a cross of glaze frosting. You can make Hot Cross Buns in advance and freeze them without the glazed cross. Thaw before adding the icing. You may add candied fruit in addition to or in place of the nuts.

Crunchy Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Thursday April 10, 2014

This variation of traditional chocolate cookies gets a crunchy flair from crispy rice cereal. These cookies are quite crunchy, much like biscotti, making them perfect for dipping into coffee, tea, or milk. They hold up well, so they are an excellent choice for gifts. It is important that the dough be very cold and hard or they will spread into puddles when baked. Most importantly, do not over-bake.

Best Crab Cakes Recipe

Tuesday April 8, 2014

My daughter loves crab meat, and this is her version of the best crab cakes ever. They are well-seasoned, yet the sweet flavor of the crab still shines through. Crab cakes may be served with cocktail sauce, tartare sauce, or remoulade sauce, but frankly, these stand on their own without the need for any dipping sauce. May be served as an appetizer or main course entree.

Honey Mustard Parmesan Chicken Recipe
Chicken thighs are an inexpensive choice for a protein entree. They are more flavorful than chicken breasts and retain moisture. Honey and mustard are perfect flavoring choices, and here they are augmented with balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and a spiced panko coating. Toss in the oven, and you have an entree that is pleasing to kids and adults alike, with little preparation time. Tips are included if you prefer drumsticks or chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs.
