Brownie in a mug with home made vanilla ice-cream

Brownie

1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
Pinch of salt
2 Tbsp olive oil
3 Tbsp water

Add all dry ingredients in a mug
Add oil and water
Mix but only until all the ingredients are combined. Mix should be lumpy
Microwave on high for 1 minute 40 seconds. Allow to cool a few minutes before eating.

Vanilla ice-cream

1/2 cup light cream
8 ice cubes
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla essence.

Put everything in a blender like the bullet. Blend until all the mixture is think and creamy. Usually about a minute.

Insane Cheese Crackers

2 Cups of grated cheese. (I use Mexican four cheeses)
1/4 Cup of unsalted butter (softened)
1 Cup of all purpose flour (you could use whole grain flour)
1/2 tspn salt
3 Tbspn milk

In a food processor put cheese, flour, butter and salt blend until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. (sort of) add the milk 1 Tbspn at a time. Mixing it inbetween. You will end up with a dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for about 20 minutes.

Roll out the dough until it is about 1/4 of an inch thick. cut into small squares and stick each one with a folk twice. This will stop it from puffing up too much. Bake at 375 degrees for about 15-18 minutes. Let cool. Lightly salt and serve. If you can get to serve them. Store in an airtight container for up to about 3 days.

Crab Dip

 

When my husband tasted these he said DAMN Honey!!! I took that to mean it was good. lol

8oz Real crab meat
4oz softened cream cheese
1/4 cup of sour cream
1/4 cup of mayo
2 Tbspn of diced shallots or scallions (same thing just different names for it)
2 cloves of minced garlic (be generous here)
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbs lemon juice
1/4 cup of grated asiago cheese
another 1/4 cup of grated asiago cheese

Mix it all together put it in an oven proof dish (holding back one of the 1/4 cups of grated cheese), sprinkle remaining grated cheese over the top and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes. Pop it under the broiler (griller) for a few minutes until the top is browned.

I served this with one of the begets I baked this morning. See the recipe below for peasant bread.I then made little bread bowls out of the dinner rolls I made this morning, filled them with hot dip, replaced the lid and served with extra bed. Makes an interesting starter.

Peasant Bread aka Crack!

 

This is the best bread EVER!!!!! Not to mention the easiest.

4 Cups of plain flour
2 tspn salt
2 1/4 tspn of dry yeast
3 tspn white sugar
about 2 cups of luke warm water

Mix all the dry ingredients together. Make a well in the middle and pour 2 cups of luke warm water. Using a folk mix it all together. If the dough is a bit dry add a little more luke warm water. This dough will be a little on the wet side. Cover with a damp cloth and put somewhere warm until it doubles in size. Usually on a couple of hours. Using another fold fold the dough in on itself working from the outside until most of the air comes out. Using two folks separate the dough into halves. Place in two oven proof dishes generously greased with butter or you can use canola oil in a mister. Allow to rise again. Not too long this time. Only about another hour. Bake in a hot oven 425 for about 20 minutes and drop the temperature down to 375 for another 15 minutes. The bread will be golden and crusty on top. Drop the bread out onto a cutting board straight out of the oven to cool.

Here are some other things you might want to know. If you want the bread to stay crusty leave it uncovered. If you want the crust to be soft then cover it once its almost cool with plastic wrap.

For bread rolls, using the folks again keep dividing the mixture in half until you get the dough about the size of rolls. Reduce the time in the oven by about 5 minutes for each cycle. 5 minutes for the 425 and 5 minutes for the 375. You can adjust the size of the bread to meet your needs.

Awesome recipe. One the family just love.
