blondie ice cream sandwiches ~

I happen to love ice cream sandwiches and am particularly fond of blondies. It's kind of like a cookie bar and ice cream all totally portable! For this particular recipe I browned the butter and added it to the brown sugar. I thought it added a particularly wonderful nutty flavor. I used my favorite brand of Italian Gelato Talenti but whatever type of ice cream you love, enjoy these compact little treats. Here is a link to a video we did of this recipe. ingredients ~ 2 sticks of butter 2 cups dark brown sugar (Muscavado is my favorite) 1 t [...]

brownies meet cake ~ still fudgy

This was a bit of an experiment which turned out perfectly in our house.  I used our Sweet & Savory Sous Salt but you could easily use our Pinot Noir Sous Salt to sprinkle on top. The recipe proportionally works in an 8 inch square baking dish. Double the recipe for a rectangular dish.   ingredients ~ 1 1/2 c chocolate chips 1 stick butter 1/2 c brown sugar 1/2 c white sugar 1 egg 1 c flour 1 t vanilla 1 t Sous Salt Sweet & Savory directions ~ Using a square baking dish line the dish with parchment paper [...]

chicken curry ~

I love a good curry and always thought they had to simmer for hours. This one doesn't! I did you a combination of curry ingredients to develop the richness. I used green curry paste and our Sous Salt Curry spice blend which is a wonderful compilation of  12 seasonings that add a balance to the flavor without a lot of heat.  If you want it hotter you can use red pepper flakes or a hot variety of red curry paste. I garnished it with crispy garbanzo beans that I put in the food processor to pulverize and then sautéed in olive [...]

brownies ~

All the credit for this recipe goes to Tieghan Gerard at Half Baked Harvest. One of my go to Instagram follows. I've got recipes for brownies that are a bit fudgier but I loved the crackle top and crunch of these brownies. The only thing I did differently is sprinkled them with our Sweet & Savory Sous Salt when they came out of the oven. Powder sugar dusting..optional!     ingredients 2 sticks (1/2 cup) salted butter 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 2 teaspoons espresso instant granules 4 large eggs 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 t Sous Salt Sweet & [...]

meyer lemon marmalade ~

This is the best condiment I've made recently...well besides the Harissa, the Sun Dried Tomato Pesto and the Carrot Top and Arugula Pistou... but then I love to cook things that taste terrific and don't require a tremendous amount of prep time.  That's one of the reasons we started our Salt business so that the home cook could prepare a tasty meal using a salt and spice blend already prepped for them.  The condiments I make I prep usually on the weekends when I have time or a rainy day works too.  Then they are in the fridge during the week [...]

lemon and lime cake ~

This is a dense luscious lemon pound cake with a lime take on key lime pie meets cake. This recipe I found on Food 52 by Joanna Sciarrino. It's lovely even without the frosting.

cauliflower sauté

As tasty as this is colorful....a terrific vegetarian stir fry. Any of our Sous Salts would work in this recipe. Our Sweet & Savory has turmeric in it so if you use that one no need to add the additional spice. ingredients - 1 cup raw cashews 1 large fennel bulb, plus ½ cup fennel fronds, divided ⅓ cup virgin coconut oil, melted 1 tablespoon whole black mustard seeds 6 scallions, thinly sliced 2 medium sweet potatoes or garnet yams, unpeeled, cut into ¾-inch pieces 1 medium head of cauliflower, cut into 1½-inch florets 2 green chiles (such as serrano or [...]

chocolate chunk shortbread cookies ~

I love a chewy gooey chocolate chip cookie.....but I'm also a sucker for a terrific dense shortbread with chunks of chocolate. I shaved some of the chocolate chunks into flakes which marbleized the cookie. Rolling the cookie dough log in coarse sugar gives it a crunch on the outside with a sprinkle of our Sous Salt Sweet & Savory on top for a salty, sweet treat.   ingredients ~ 2 sticks of ice cold salted butter cut into small pieces 1/2 c granulated sugar 1/2 c dark brown sugar 1 t vanilla extract 2 1/4 c flour 1 c semi sweet [...]

tea cakes ~

These lovely little tea cakes are yummy either with or without icing. Slightly sweet and delicate they are terrific for a snack cake, wonderful with fruit or ideal for breakfast with some jam. I made these in a muffin baby bundt pan but you could use a square or round muffin pan as well. These were done for Easter so I colored the icing spring green...your choice of coloring or natural whichever you prefer.  Using purple beet juice gives the icing a terrific brilliant fuchsia color which can be fun. Or orange for Halloween. Limitless possibilities. ingredients 3 c cake flour [...]

blondies & toffee chips

I know most peoples downfall are brownies but mine are blondies... love them... chewy with a hint of coffee flavor, the lusciousness of a dark brown sugar dotted with little Heath Bar and chocolate chips. When they come out of the oven they are warm and gooey perfect with a scoop of ice cream. I love them the next day after they've been in the fridge. The chocolate chips harden providing a perfect chocolate crunch to the blondie. As with all of my recipes feel free to alter the chips with nuts or different chocolate bits. I use Dark Muscovado Brown [...]
