Recipe News: Chewy Cornflake Cookies

Wilma Stoffle of Knoxville, Tenn., was looking for a recipe for cookies like the ones her mother made many years ago using cornflakes, peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk.

She remembered that the cookies were "sticky, very tasty and somewhat chewy," but neither she nor her mother could remember exactly how to make them.

Debbie Iverson of Pasadena, Calif., thinks she has the recipe that Stoffle wants. She got it from a call-in radio show when she lived in California in the 1980s.

These rich little goodies certainly match the description. They are almost irresistible; my son and his buddies didn't even wait for them to cool before downing them. Iverson says that her kids like them even better made with Rice Krispies in place of the cornflakes. Maybe next time, I'll try that.

Recipe News: Recipes for a hot chocolate party

Nothing takes the chill out of the air like a mug of hot chocolate. Let it be the inspiration for your next party, whether you're hosting a full-scale bash or a gathering of girlfriends for an episode of "Grey's Anatomy."

Create a hot chocolate bar where guests can serve themselves the cocoa flavor and ingredients of their choice.

SETUP: Before guests arrive, make three types of hot chocolate, suggests Christopher Elbow, owner of Christopher Elbow Artisanal Chocolates. Stick to the basics -- dark, light and white -- so guests can fashion their own exotic concoctions. Keep the hot chocolate warm in thermal carafes or slow cookers.

Includes recipes for:


  • AMERICAN HOT COCOA

  • FRENCH HOT CHOCOLATE

Recipe News: Recipes To Keep Hikers Fueled

Yes, it's true. You can, on occasion, manage to get a pizza delivered while backpacking the backcountry. All you need is a credit card, a robust phone signal and a willingness to hike to the hard road for your rendezvous with the delivery angel.

But more often than not, your phone will be as silent as a tomb, and your credit card will be more useful as an instrument for removing the barbed stingers of bees. In circumstances such as these, a large deluxe pizza - pineapple, no anchovies - is most likely to be enjoyed in your dreams.

But not necessarily; as the popularity of backcountry travel has grown, so has the number of delicious recipes that will satisfy not only the body's requirement for fuel but also the taste buds of the most discriminating deep-woods gourmand. And believe it or not, one of these is for pizza.

A Caloric Inferno

Hiking, even over the mild topography of Florida, expends a respectable number of calories. According to several different Web-based calculators, a 180-pound trekker burns in the neighborhood of 3,900 calories during the course of an eight-hour walk.

  • GORP

  • CHICKEN AND RICE

Recipe News: Recipe for Easy Egg Rolls

No matter how delicious they are when you pick them up from your favorite Asian takeout, egg rolls always seem to turn to cold, oily logs by the time you get them home. Like so many fried foods, egg rolls are meant to be eaten hot and almost immediately after cooking. Getting them at their prime means either eating them at the restaurant or making them at home. The latter isn't as daunting as it sounds. Great egg rolls can be made in less time than it takes to get takeout. First, the wrappers. Wontons, which can be found in a variety of sizes in the produce section of most grocers, are best. Large square wrappers are the easiest to fold around a filling. It is important to seal the edges of the wrapper when folding. Otherwise, they can open during frying. This recipe uses egg, but water also could be used.

Recipe News: Hotting up: Skye Gyngell's zingy ginger recipes

Slightly oddly shaped, like fat misshapen hands, ginger originated in China before spreading to India, South-east Asia, West Africa and the Caribbean. Its very distinct flavour is not hot exactly, but nonetheless it has the ability to lend heat and freshness to dishes. Chameleon-esque, it works with almost anything – from meat and fish to fruit and vegetables.

It is also a perfect partner to the heat of fresh chillies, the sourness of tamarind or lime and the caramel sweetness of palm sugar. Added to just one or two spices, such as cardamom and mustard seeds, and finished with a glug or two of fish sauce, this versatile ingredient can very quickly give you the base for a simple but delicious curry.

Ginger's sprightly, lively flavour is a particularly wonderful addition to food cooked during these cold winter months. An explosion of pure, unadulterated, zingy heat in the mouth.

When buying fresh ginger, the skin should be tight, not wrinkly and soft, and it should snap crisply when bent and ooze a sharp, watery juice that is capable of making the eye squint with its heady, powerful flavour. A spice indeed in the true sense of the word: exotic, warm, and fragrant – and utterly particular in flavour.

Includes recipes for:


  • Colchester native oysters with ginger, mirin and soya sauce

  • Halibut with braised fennel and ginger

  • Ginger syllabub

Recipe News: Recipes for Sloppy Joes and spaghetti boost whole grains simply

Eat more whole grains! We hear it everywhere these days. We've made the switch to whole-grain bread, but we're still having a problem switching to whole-grain pasta. Some we've tried tasted like we might as well be eating the box.

Manufacturers heard consumer complaints and are developing tastier whole-grain products, so check them out. Here are some tips to make the conversion easier to swallow.

•Begin by substituting one-quarter of whole-grain pasta mixed in with regular pasta. Work your way up to a higher percentage every time you serve pasta. Soon, your family will be accustomed to the new look, feel and taste.

•Look for products that are high in fiber. Some brands boast as much as three times more fiber than their regular-pasta counterparts.

•Look for fresh, refrigerated whole-grain pasta. Its texture tends to be softer than dried pasta. Follow the package directions carefully to avoid over- or undercooking.

•If your regular supermarket doesn't sell whole-grain pasta, ask the grocery manager to order it. National brands such as Hodgson Mill and Creamette have lines that include whole-grain pasta and pasta with whole-grain blends.

  • SIMPLE ITALIAN SAUSAGE SPAGHETTI DINNER

Recipe News: Let it snow: We've got cheesecake

The plan was to take pumpkin cheesecake to the Goble family Christmas celebration earlier this month.

I'd tasted a sample of this delicacy around Thanksgiving, and quickly discovered that pumpkin and cheesecake make a mighty fine combination.

ADVERTISEMENT
I'd started looking around for a recipe when lo and behold, an online reader from Ayer, Mass., e-mailed one to The Clueless Cook.

"My mom (Justine Chappell) and sister (Ellen Hiser) live in Lexington, and I often read the Mansfield News Journal online to see what's happening out in their area," Susan Chappell wrote in an e-mail. "We all love to cook and enjoy sharing recipes. I enjoyed your article and wanted to share my favorite cheesecake recipe -- it's easy and it is a great holiday recipe! I hope you get a chance to try it."

Includes recipes for:


  • PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE

  • BROWN SUGAR PENUCHE

  • UPSIDE-DOWN PIZZA

  • SEAFOOD DIP

  • POTATO AND CHEESE SOUP
