BAM Brownies {for Bacon S'mores}


When the editors of Bacon S'mores put out a call for recipes to their writers, I took the challenge. Demi wrote: The recipe has to be for some variant on the idea "bacon s'mores." Okay.

Here we go...

BAM Brownies. BAM = Bacon + Aleppo pepper + Marshmallow

This makes a 9"x13" pan full of chocolatey, gooey, deliciousness.

Soft butter, for greasing the pan
6 large eggs
2 C organic granulated sugar
1 t ground Aleppo pepper
12 oz melted butter
2 C unsweetened cocoa
2 t pure vanilla extract
1 C white whole wheat flour
1/4 C organic, raw cacao nibs
4 T maple syrup marshmallows, unset - still in cream state
1/4 C  oven-crisped bacon, chopped

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Butter an 9"x13" baking pan. In a large mixing bowl add all ingredients, except flour, nibs, bacon, and marshmallows, and mix to combine. Add the flour and nibs; stir till just  moistened.

Pour the batter into a greased and floured pan. Spoon dollops of the marshmallow cream onto the top and swirl to marble. Sprinkle chopped bacon over the top and bake for 45-50 minutes.

Check for doneness with a toothpick method. When it's done, remove to a rack to cool. Resist the temptation to cut into it until it's mostly cool.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!
