SWEET POTATO CASSEROLE WITH BACON


INGREDIENTS
* 4 large sweet potatoes, quartered
* 4 slices bacon
* 3 tablespoons butter
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1/2 cup light cream
* 1/4 cup milk
* salt and ground black pepper to taste

* add to shopping list Add to Shopping List
* add a personal note Add a Personal Note

DIRECTIONS

1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 2-quart baking dish; set aside.
2. Place the sweet potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry until cool enough to handle.
3. Meanwhile, place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned and crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Chop the bacon coarsely; set aside.
4. Slip the skins off the potatoes and discard; blend the potatoes in an electric blender or food processor until smooth. Stir in the butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, cream, and milk. Mix well; season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread the potato mixture in the prepared baking dish.
5. Bake in the preheated oven until heated through, about 18 minutes. Remove from the oven; sprinkle the potatoes with the bacon. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

my fave christmas delicacy

Trinidadian Beef/Chicken Pastelles

To prepare fig leaves, steam them in a large pot of boiling water for ten minutes until they become pliable and soft. They may also be softened by waving them over an open flame. You can also use sheets of tin foil.

2. Add water and process to make a soft, pliable dough.
3. Divide the dough into 12 balls. Cover with a damp cloth to prevent drying.
4. Place one piece of dough on a greased fig leaf and press into an eight-inch square.
5. Spoon two tablespoons of filling onto the middle of the dough and fold and seal pastelles.
6. Wrap in fig leaf and tie into a neat package. (you can also use foil)
7. Steam pastelles for 45 minutes until cooked.

Makes 12-15 pastelles.

2 onions, finely chopped
2 tbs olive oil

Apricot Almond Rugalach


* 1 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled
* 4 ounces cream cheese, cold
* 3/4 cup apricot jam
* 1/4 cup white sugar
* 1/2 cup toasted and chopped almonds
* 1 teaspoon lemon zest
* 1 egg
* 1/3 cup chopped almonds
* 1/3 cup sifted confectioners' sugar

* add to recipe box Add to Recipe Box
My folders:
* add to shopping list Add to Shopping List
* add a personal note Add a Personal Note

DIRECTIONS

1. To Make Pastry: Place the flour in a bowl. Cut the butter into the flour and blend until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Cut the cream cheese into small cubes and rub into the flour-butter mixture. Knead until the dough forms a ball. Cut dough in half, wrap each half in plastic wrap and refrigerate.
2. To Make Filling: Stir the apricot jam until it is spreadable. In a bowl combine the sugar with the chopped nuts and grated lemon peel.
3. To Assemble: On a lightly floured surface roll out each half of dough. The larger and thinner the circle the crisper the cookies will be. Each circle should be at least 9 inches in diameter. Spread each circle with jam and sprinkle with the almond mixture.
4. Cut each circle into twelve wedges. Roll each wedge up tightly from the outside edges. Turn edges slightly to form a crescent. Place crescents on a parchment lined baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Repeat until all cookies are shaped.
5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
6. Beat egg and brush cookies with beaten egg. Sprinkle with nuts. Bake cookies for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cookies cool on wire wracks then dust with sifted confectioners' sugar.

it's a French cake call Pain d'épice: it's sweet, and good to eat with a glass of hot wine ( a French Christmas speciality too ). It's my favourite Christmas cake:
for 8 persons:
preparation: around 10 min
baking:45 min

*You need: 250 gr of flour + 200 gr of honey + 50 gr of brown sugar + 10 cl of cream + 1 packet of baking powder + 1 packet of vanilla-flavoured sugar + 1/2 coffee spoon of 4 mixed spices ( ginger, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg ) + 1 coffee spoon of star anise.

*In a robot, first, mixed all the ingredients.
*butter a cake pan and pour the mix into it.
*bake it at th.6 (170°C) for 45 min
if you add vanilla ice cream, it's even better!
hummmmmm so delicious!!
enjoy!
( sorry if they are some mistakes but I had to translate it! )
