I posted this recipe on the Preston/Child website earlier today and got some very good responses to it. I thought that you guys might like to have it as well. It's about the best bar recipe there is - BAR NONE!

Ahaaahaaahaaaa ...... I slay me!!!

The Original Nanaimo Bar

Although there is a lot of speculation surrounding the origin of the famous Nanaimo Bar treat, since little solid evidence exists today, the city of Nanaimo has offered its theory about the three layered treats. Sharing its namesake with the bar, Nanaimo's history reveals that these homemade bars were sent by miners' families to their loved ones in the field as a sweet treat to brighten their day. Whatever the case, Nanaimo Bars have become a Nanaimo staple, offered in most restaurants and cafes throughout the city. There have been many versions of Nanaimo Bars made over the years, but the Original Nanaimo Bar recipe still stands as a favourite.

THE ORIGINAL NANAIMO BAR

Bottom Layer
1/2 cup unsalted butter (Euro-style cultured)
1/4 cup sugar
5 tbsp. cocoa
1 egg beaten
1 3/4 cup graham wafer crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds
1 cup coconut

Melt first three ingredients in the top of a double bolier.
Add egg and stir to cook and thicken .
Remove from heat.
Stir in crumbs, coconut and nuts.
Press firmly into an ungreased 8 X 8 pan.

Second Layer
1/2 cup unsalted butter
2 tbsp. and 2 tsp. of cream
2 tbsp. vanilla custard powder
2 cup icing sugar

Cream butter, cream, custard powder and icing sugar together well.
Beat until light.
Spread over bottom layer

Third Layer
4 squares semi-sweet chocolate (1 oz each)
2 tbsp. unsalted butter

Melt chocolate and butter over low heat.
Cool.
Once cool, but still liquid, pour over second layer and chill in refrigerator.

Classic Lasagna

Take one microwave Lasagne - stick fork in film lid a few times - open microwave, throw it in, slam door, select 8 mins (full power) - hit COOK!!!

Stop after 4/5 minutes, remove film lid (but leave attached at one end), take knife, unstick parts that are stuck to the side of the plastic container - stick knife in a few times to vent excess steam - lick knife clean (yummy) - replace film lid, throw it back in microwave, slam door, hit COOK again.

After the BEEP BEEP BEEP, remove lasagne from microwave, remove film lid completely, take one plate, empty contents into plate - add any optional extras (salad etc), throw packaging in garbage pail - retire to living room, hit PLAY on DVD player (choice of movie is yours), and enjoy.

Welcome to the board, SqueezeRLZ! That Red Velvet Cake with Raspberries and Blueberries sounds tasty! :D

************

The discussion got around to the topic of Dessert items on a UK based forum I that I tend to lurk at. It seems that most of them had fond memories of something called "Gypsy Tart" from their days at boarding school. I guess because of its ease in making, it was a popular thing to be served for Pudding there. Here's the recipe:



Ingredients

1 14oz tin of Evaporated milk.
12oz Dark muscovado sugar.
1 10in shortcrust pastry case Pre baked.

Method

Pre heat oven to 400 /F.
Whisk evaporated milk and sugar together for 10 - 15 minutes until light and fluffy.
The mix should be coffee coloured.
Pour the mix into the pastry case and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
The gypsy tart will have a slightly sticky surface
but will not be set completely until it has been left to cool.
Serve cold.
Servings: 6

************

The unPCness of the term "Gypsy" got me Googling for the more PC term of "Romany". (I guess because I'm part Welsh Roma.) As a result I found this recipe that sounds even more delish:



Ingredients

200 g Romany Creams
180 g instant chocolate pudding
800 ml cold milk
250 ml cream, chilled
20 g chocolate Flake, crumbled
glacé cherries for decoration

Method

Place the biscuits in a plastic bag and crush with a rolling pin. Spread the crumbs evenly in a 21 x 27 cm pie dish. Beat the instant pudding and milk together until smooth and spread evenly over the crumb layer. Whip the cream until stiff peaks are formed and spread over the chocolate pudding. Sprinkle with the crumbled chocolate and decorate with glacé cherries. Chill until set. Serves 6.
Servings: 6

************

And if you want to make your own Romany Creams for the recipe:




Cookie

1/2 lb. butter plus
1 tbsp. butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups shredded sweetended coconut
2 ozs. semisweet baking chocolate - melted
1/2 cup boiling water
1 tsp. baking powder

Butter Cream Filling

1 lb. confectioners' sugar
1/4 lb. butter - softened (not melted)
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3-4 tbsp. milk

Make the cookies: Cream together butter and sugar; add flour, coconut, and baking powder. Dissolve melted baking chocolate by whisking into boiling water; add to mixture. Roll mixture into small 1-inch balls. Place balls on greased cookie sheet and, using a fork, press criss-cross to flatten. Bake in a moderate oven, preheated to 350F, for 10 to 12 minutes until desired doneness (some people like them crispier than others); let cool on a wire rack.

Make the butter cream filling: Cream one-third of the confectioners' sugar with softened butter and salt in large bowl. Blend vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons milk and remaining sugar into mixture. Gradually stir remaining milk into filling until desired spreading consistency is reached. When cookies have cooled completely, sandwich them together with the butter cream filling.

If desired you can melt some squares of high-quality milk chocolate and coat one half of the completed cookie by dipping.

CHICKEN MARSALA

yieId:: 8 servings ( I find even if you use less chicken to keep everything else the same, more of that delicious sauce)

8 whole large breasts, skinned,
boned, and each cut in half
2 eggs
1 cup dried bread crumbs
1 1/2 sticks Butter or margarine
4 garlic cloves, sliced
4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1 cup water
3/4 cup Marsala wine (good quality, not cooking marsala)
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 mushroom caps, sliced

1. In small bowl beat eggs slightly: place breadcrumbs on plate or wax paper. Dip chicken pieces into egg and then into bread crumbs to coat them evenly.
2. Put 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) butter or margarine in 12” skillet over medium heat, cook garlic until starting to slightly brown and add 3 breaded chicken pieces until chicken is golden brown on both sides, about (6 minutes). Remove chicken to warm platter, keep warm. In same skillet with garlic, melt 2 more tablespoons butter or margarine (I/4 stick); cook 3 more chicken pieces. Remove to platter and keep warm. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces and more butter.
3. In same skillet, melt 4 tablespoons butter or margarine (I/2 stick). Stir in flour, scraping to loosen brown bits from bottom of skillet. Grad-ually stir in water,Marsala, pepper and mushrooms. Cook, stirring, until mix-ture thickens and boils. Put chicken pieces back in as sauce is thickening. If you don't like mushrooms they can be omitted but I really feel they add to the flavor and sauce texture.

SqueezeRLZ also makes a killer Rum Cake (with Mount Gay, of course.) I requested it for my birthday last year and she came through gloriously. Ask her nicely and maybe she'll post the recipe.

While on recent trip to Boston, I roamed the North End (kind of a little Italy) and made the mistake of consuming a pistachio nut macaroon from Mike's Pastries.

I have never, ever, in my entire life put anything that tasted that good in my mouth. Since then, I've searched for a recipe for pistachio nut macaroons and can't come up with anything close to Mike's. They were like eating a cross between a gooey butter cake and spumoni ice cream.

If anyone has anything close, let me know. I'm pretty talented in the kitchen and I figure if I get a recipe that comes close, I can figure the missing parts out on my own - given enough practice batches.

In the meantime, I've ordered some from Mike's and they should be here today or tomorrow. Sad, isn't it.
