Rosemary Fig Preserves

We're blessed that the house we're in came with a fig tree. The problem is only two of us eat fresh figs and not a lot at that. I decided to use them up this year. Some are chopped in the freezer to make bread later and some I made these preserves with. The thing about these preserves is that they have converted two fig "haters" sure they still don't like them off the tree but they do like them prepared this way.

Chocolate Chip Toffee Cookies (Chewy)

Rich, flavorful, chewy with crispy edges. I love chocolate chip cookies and this recipe has all the elements I just mentioned. The browned butter and dark brown sugar give these cookies a butterscotch toffee flavor and the dark brown sugar makes them chewy. I do have quite a few other recipes on this blog.  I can't help it. This one, the Gideon cookies, the Kiss Me  Chocolate Chip Cookies, so many yummy ones. Just pick one, the Skillet Chocolate Chip cookie is the easiest.
As far as this recipe I will definitely make them again. With or without the Toffee chips. I would love to put nuts in them, but my child can't eat nuts. I use less chocolate and toffee in these than most people would but we love the cookie like this.
This is a great batter to customize.

Mexican Hot Chocolate Fudgy Skillet Brownie

I was craving Mexican Hot Chocolate donuts and the Chocolate Chili ice cream from Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour at Universal Studios. Of course we can't get there so  made these brownies and they always hit the spot. 
If you are looking for a fancier brownie, try these Fudgy Cheesecake Brownies.

Japchae is an easy noodle dish to make and it travels well. This is vegetarian, if you don't garnish with the egg it can be served as a vegan dish. The ingredients are fairly simple and can be found at major grocery stores or the Asian market. If you can't find the noodles however you can still make this, use a thicker rice noodle or soba. The sauce is the perfect marinade for the tofu recipe at the bottom of this post also. It's also great for chicken, beef, or pork.

Jeaow For Sour Fruits

This is one of my favorite snacks. It's sweet, spicy, and salty, the mangoes and fruits are tart. My mouth waters everytime I think about it. It makes me crave baby mangoes and sour fruits. My cousins when I used to visit them loved this. Julie used to make this sauce for us and we would go pick fruits like crab apples and other fruits around the neighborhood to snack on. So much fun.

Coconut Cherry Pandan Cupcakes

These cupcakes are made with this Pandan Sponge cake batter here. My favorite cake. For the frosting, I made it as written but added coconut cream, a drop of red food coloring and almond extract along with the coconut extract. The pipette is a shot of cherry juice. SO yummy.
Nice and fluffy inside.

Yorkshire Pudding (Sous Vide Bone-in Rib Roast)

Yorkshire Pudding. I have made these before. I haven't updated though that I love the combination of both ghee and drippings the most in these. They are so flavorful and I wouldn't make them any other way. You can, however, use either or as far as ghee and fat drippings. But both make such a great combination. 
I am also including my sous vide method for a bone-in rib roast (Prime Rib depending on the grade you have purchased.) It really is a foolproof method to cook the roast to get it cooked to your likeness all the way through.

Metal Stamped Garden Labels

I found these blank garden labels on Amazon they are from Bosmere USA. A great company, I contacted them with questions and they got right back to me. I recently ordered a second set from them. I used my metal stampers to stamp names on them then used a sharpie to fill in the letter indentations. They came out so cute.
