Terong panggang dgn tomat dan ricotta



2 eggplants, sliced
1/3 c olive oil
1 lb. 2 oz cherry tomatoes, halved
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
small basil leaves, to garnish

Preheat the broiler. Brush the eggplant slices with some of the oil. Grill the slices on both sides until they are brown, then lay them in a large, shallow baking dish that will fit under the broiler.

Heat the rest of the oil in a small saucepan, add the cherry tomatoes and garlic, then fry briefly until the tomatoes just start to soften. Pour the tomatoes over the eggplant, season well, and spoon the ricotta on top. Put the dish back under the broiler until the ricotta starts to bubble, then sprinkle the basil leave over the top.

White chocolate almond stacks


Elements by Lie Fhung at ztampf.com


Recipe from "Family Circle" Magazine (Nov. 29, 2006 issue). Originally the recipe calls for green food coloring and green glace cherries but I replaced it with red food coloring and maraschino cherries.

Makes: 30 bars. Prep: 20 minutes. REFRIGERATE: overnight.

12 ounces white chocolate
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/2 t salt
1/2 t almond extract

6 large egs
1 1/4 c all-purpose flour
1/2 maraschino cherries, chopped
red liquid food coloring
1/4 c apple jelly
3 T heavy cream

1. Line two 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pans with nonstick foil, extending 2 inches over short ends.
2. Break up chocolate; in small bowl, microwave 6 ounces of the chocolate on HIGH for 1 minute; stir. Continue microwaving in 15-seconds intervals, stirring until melted.
3. Heat oven to 350 F. In large bowl, beat together butter, sugar, salt and almond extract until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. On low speed, beat in flour until blended; you should have about 5 cups batter. Stir in melted white chocolate untl smooth, then chopped cherries. Spread half the batter into one pan. Tint remaining batter with food coloring and evenly spread into second pan.
4. Bake layers at 350 F for 18 minutes, until toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean. Transfer pans to wire racks; cool 10 minutes. Turn cakes out onto racks; remove foil; cool completely.
5. Place white layer on a baking sheet. Spread with apple jelly. Top with red layer. Cover with plastic wrap and place a baking sheet on top. Weigh down with cans to compress. Refrigerate overnight.
6. In small bowl, microwave remaining 6 ounces white chocolate and cream on HIGH for 1 minute; stir until melted. Remove wrap from layers; spread top with white chocolate mixture. Refrigerate, uncovered, 15 minutes. Trim edges. Cut crosswise in 10 strips, each about 1 inch wide. Cut each strip crosswise into thirds for a total of thirty 2.5 x 1-inch bars.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake

One of my most favorite cake ever is the upside down pineapple cake. I can only eat one slice of chocolate cake, but I can eat one whole pan of this sucker in one day. I love the melted butter taste, the sticky brown sugar and the soft texture of the cake. This has become one of my comfort foods.



Recipe:
1/4 c. butter
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. cake flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. milk
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 can pineapple slices in syrup
maraschino cherries (as many as pineapple slices used)
Use an 8" square or round pan. Drain can of pineapple, saving the syrup.

Melt the butter in the microwave, don't overheat. Place in pan, spread on the bottom and sides.

Sprinkle brown sugar over melted butter. Arrange whole pineapple slices and cherries (with cherries in centers of pineapple slices) over the brown sugar in pan. Cut some of the remaining pineapple slices into half circles, then line the sides of the pan with them (standing up).

In a bowl, combine cake flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, softened butter, milk, egg, vanilla and 2 tablespoons of the pineapple syrup.

Pour batter into the pan being careful not to disturb the pineapples and cherries.

Bake at 375°F for 30 to 35 minutes or until cake is golden and has pulled away from the edges slightly.

Remove from oven and allow to stand for a few minutes to set and then turn it upside down onto a serving dish. Serve while still warm.
