  • Those look awesome! I do wonder how they taste, as the ingredients all seem to have found their way into the recipe purely for how they look and function more than how they'll taste together.

      • Peppered Bacon Breadtwirls






        1lb Thick Cut Bacon

        1 Container of Pillsbury Crescent Seamless Dough Sheet

        1/4 Cup Course Ground Black Pepper (to taste)

        1/4 Cup Mustard & 2 tbsp. Maple Syrup..for dipping.


        Directions:

        Sprinkle the Pepper evenly over the raw Bacon and crisp it up as you normally do, set aside.

        Unroll the dough and slice it into approx. 1″ strips…



        Wrap each strip around one or two pieces of the Bacon and bake on a sheet pan at 350 for 20 minutes, or until they’re golden.

        Let them cool..



        While they’re cooling make up the Mustard Dipping Sauce by mixing the Mustard and the Maple Syrup together!

        Serve them up with some of that Sweet & Spicy Mustard for dipping…

        • Happy Devil's Food Cake Day!

          http://dyingforchocolate.blogspot.co...late-cake.html

          (Vintage recipes included!)



          Devil's Food Cake vs Chocolate Cake
          Since it's National Devil's Food Cake Day, I thought I might revisit a post about the difference between Devil's Food Cake and Chocolate Cake. There are many different interpretations. Some recipes use cocoa, some melted chocolate, some add coffee or hot liquid, and some increase the baking soda.

          According to Wikipedia:

          Because of differing recipes and changing ingredient availability over the course of the twentieth century, it is difficult to precisely qualify what distinguishes Devil's food from the more standard chocolate cake. The traditional Devil's food cake is made with shredded beets much the way a carrot cake is made with carrots. The beets add moisture and sweetness to the cake, helping it to be very rich. The red of the beets slightly colors the cake red and due to the richness of the cake it became known as the Devil's food.

          O.K. That's a beet cake or a 'natural' red velvet cake, and I make a good one, but it's not a Devil's Food Cake in my opinion.

          Devil's food cake is generally more moist and airy than other chocolate cakes, and often uses cocoa as opposed to chocolate for the flavor as well as coffee. The lack of melted chocolate and the addition of coffee is typically what distinguishes a Devil's food cake from a chocolate cake, though some recipes call for all, resulting in an even richer chocolate flavor. The use of hot, or boiling water as the cake's main liquid, rather than milk, is also a common difference.

                            Bacon-Wrapped Salsa Stuffed Chicken Recipe
                            Serves 4

                            Prep Time: 20 min.

                            Cooking Time: 35 min.

                            Ingredients for Chicken

                            4 chicken breasts;
                            12 slices of bacon;
                            Toothpicks;

                            Ingredients for Salsa

                            3 plum tomatoes, peeled and seeds removed, chopped;
                            2 green onions, sliced;
                            1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and thinly sliced;
                            2 cloves garlic;
                            Zest and juice of 1 lime;
                            2 tbsp. fresh cilantro, minced;

                            Preparation
                            1. Preheat your oven to 400° F.
                            2. Combine all the ingredients for the salsa in a bowl and mix well.
                            3. Cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally (see here for pictures), so that you can open them up like a book. Flatten them out with a rolling pin.
                            4. Fill each chicken breast with an equal amount of the salsa mixture and close them up.
                            5. Roll the bacon strips around the chicken, and pin them in place with the toothpicks.
                            6. Once the chicken is wrapped, place it in a baking pan and bake 30 to 35 min or until a meat thermometer reads 170 F. Then broil 5 to 6 min or until the bacon is nicely crisp.
                            7. Serve with some salsa.
