This summer we are having camp Shor!  And as part of the fun activities we do, we do a lot of children friendly recipes (and pre-school crafts – if you know fun ones, let me know).  The following chocolate syrup is easy and delicious.  It’s from the Scharffen Berger’s cookbook (Scharffen Berger is a boutique chocolate – which can be bought at The Chocolate Publishing company, as well as other locations).   It’s a small amount and little hands can do a great job mixing and pouring (and then drinking milk chocolate – it’s a win/win all around). Is this recipe cost effective (i.e. is it cheaper to make than shoprite chocolate syrup?) – I have to work the math out on that one, but it’s better for you (i.e. no corn syrup, and no preservatives).  This recipe keeps about 1 month in the fridge, and is…

I am a fan of eggs.  I particularly like Eggs Benedict, Basted Eggs, Eggs with potatoes. So, when I came across a new recipe that made eggs with a technique I had never used, I immediately made them.  I have since (in the 3 days of learning about this recipe) have made 20 of these son-in-law eggs.  The recipe was inspired by Dani Venn- a talented Australian chef. Her sauce used tamarind (which you can buy at 7 Mile) and is tasty, but I changed it to cranberry sauce because I thought that would be more likely that people would make it (and I like cranberry sauce). The original recipe is from Thailand. The concept is simple enough, yet, I’ve never had even thought of soft boiling an egg, peeling it and then frying it. It adds a level of complexity to boiled eggs.  It opens up a whole bunch…

Ohh la la! Crepes are delicious and French. Which of course, gives one permission to speak in a horrible (or not so horrible, as the case may be) “Frunch” accent. Crepes  are super easy, relatively healthy, can be made gluten free, and can house just about any filling you would be willing to eat.  Crepes can be savory or sweet, can be used as an appetizer, main entree or dessert.  They can be gussied up to be “Fancy Nancy”-esque or can be (dare we say it) pedestrian- and eaten as street food. What’s the recipe you say? Serve some up – you say? Well if you have an immersion blender (or a whisk if not), flour (corn starch for gluten free), water, eggs, and approximately 5 minutes, you can have crepes. (Other ingredients are optional – see below) Basic Recipe (makes 6-8 crepes): 3 large eggs 1…
