Coconut Banana Cream Pie




I have an amazing cookbook by Cook's Illustrated titled, Baking Illustrated. It teaches you how to make the best of every dessert possible. Like a baking encyclopedia. I love it. This original recipe for Coconut Cream Pie came from them - I tweaked it a bit to make it my own, and now Tom's favorite.

INGREDIENTS

1 (14 oz.) can coconut milk, well stirred. (not cream of coconut!)
1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup (1 1/4) oz.) unsweetened shredded coconut
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 t. salt
5 large egg yolks
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 T. unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
1 - 2 bananas sliced
whipped topping

DIRECTIONS

Bring the coconut milk, milk, shredded coconut, 1/3 c. sugar and salt to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon to dissolve the sugar. When the mixture reaches a simmer, whisk the egg yolks in a medium bowl to break them up, then whisk in the remaining 1/3 c. sugar and cornstarch until well combined and no lumps remain. Gradually whisk the simmering liquid into the yolk mixture to temper it, then return the mixture to the saucepan, scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula. Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, whisking constantly, until 3 or 4 bubbles burst on the surface and the mixture is thickened, about 30 seconds (it actually took a few minutes for me). Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla and butter. Pour half the filling into a cooled, baked pie crust. Slice the bananas on top of filling and add remaining filling on top of bananas. Press a sheet of plastic wrap over the surface of the pie and refrigerate until the filling is cold and firm, at least 3 hours.

Serve with whipped topping. You can add toasted coconut on the top of the whipped cream, but I preferred not to. The coconut in the filling was sufficient to my taste.

1 lb. chicken - boneless, skinless breasts
1 stalk celery, cut into thirds
half of lemon sliced
handful of fresh parsley

Spicy Veggie Frittata


Ingredients:

1 t. coconut oil
1/4 c. onion 
1/2 jalapeno (you can leave seeds in or take out depending on how spicy you want it)
1 clove garlic
2 baby bella mushrooms
2 heads of steamed broccoli

Lemon Meringue Pie



This is my Husband's absolute favorite pie.  Being Father's Day I decided to tackle it.  I have always been nervous to make one, I don't know why, it just seemed daunting to get the meringue the right consistency.  This recipe was super easy and made a delicious pie!  Definitely going to make it again real soon.

**Note** The lemon dropped on the side of the pie was an accident turned into a "garnish".  Ha!


Ingredients

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2-3 lemons, juiced and zested, depending on the size
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 egg yolks, beaten
  • 1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
  • 4 egg whites
  • 6 tablespoons white sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. To Make Lemon Filling: In a medium saucepan, whisk together 1 cup sugar, flour, cornstarch, and salt. Stir in water, lemon juice and lemon zest. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to a boil. Stir in butter. Place egg yolks in a small bowl and gradually whisk in 1/2 cup of hot sugar mixture. Whisk egg yolk mixture back into remaining sugar mixture. Bring to a boil and continue to cook while stirring constantly until thick. Remove from heat. Pour filling into baked pastry shell.
  3. To Make Meringue: In a large glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until foamy. Add sugar gradually, and continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Spread meringue over pie, sealing the edges at the crust.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until meringue is golden brown.

Sourdough Starter for Boule Bread



This is a recipe adapted from the book Artisan Bread In 5 Minutes A Day.  I say adapted because of the type of flour I use.  I recently purchased Hard White Wheat, Soft White Wheat and Hard Red Wheat berries and I am working on adapting all my recipes to include these flours instead of the all-purpose white flour.  My changes are in italics.

The purpose of a sourdough starter is one for the flavor and two for the convenience (for me) of having fresh dough readily available to bake bread quickly.  Since we started milling our own flour the time involved in baking bread has slightly increased and for me that is not a good thing.

Here is the recipe. If you can get through all the wording (it does seem extensive) and just follow the steps one by one you will realize making fresh bread every day really is not that daunting.  Once you have your starter you will have 4 lbs of fresh dough to make bread with for the next 2 weeks.

Ingredients:


  • cups lukewarm water

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated yeast (2 packets)

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons kosher salt or 1 1/2 tablespoons other coarse salt

  • 6 1/2 cups flour, unsifted, unbleached, all-purpose (not strong) I used my Hard White Wheat flour





  • 1 Preparing Dough for Storage:



  • 2 Warm the water slightly. It should feel just a little warmer than body temperature. Warm water will rise the dough to the right point for storage in about 2 hours. With cold water it will need 3-4 hours.






  • 3 Add the yeast to the water in a 5 quart bowl or, preferably, in a resealable, lidded (not airtight) plastic food container or food-grade bucket. Don't worry about getting it all to dissolve.



  • 4 Mix in the flour and salt - kneading is unnecessary. Add all of the flour at once, measuring it in with dry-ingredient measuring cups, by gently scooping up the flour, then sweeping the top level with a knife or spatula. Don't press down into the flour as you scoop or you'll throw off the measurement. Mix with a wooden spoon, a high-capacity food processor (14 cups or larger) fitted with the dough attachment, or a heavy duty stand mixer fitted with the dough hook until the mixture is uniform. If you're hand mixing and it becomes too difficult to incorporate all the flour with the spoon, you can reach into your mixing vessel with very wet hands and press the mixture together. Don't knead, it isn't necessary. You're finished when everything is uniformly moist, without dry patches. It takes a few minutes, and will yield a dough that is wet and loose enough to conform to the shape of its container.



  • 5 Allow to rise. Cover with lid (not airtight or it could explode the lid off). Allow the mixture to rise at room temperature until it begins to collapse (or at least flattens on the top), approx 2 hours, depending on room temperature, and initial water temperature Longer rising times, up to 5 hours, won't harm the result.



  • 6 You can use a portion of the dough any time after this period. Fully refrigerated dough is less sticky and easier to work with than dough at room temperature.



  • 7 On Baking Day:



  • 8 prepare your loaf tin, tray, or whatever you're baking it in/on. Sprinkle the surface of your refrigerated dough with four. Pull up and cut of a grapefruit-size piece of dough (c 1 lb), using a serrated knife.



  • 9 Hold the mass of dough in your hands and add a little more flour as needed so it won't stick to your hands. Gently stretch the surface of the dough around to the bottom on all 4 sides, rotating the ball a quarter-turn as you go. Most of the dusting flour will fall off - that's fine, it isn't meant to be incorporated. The bottom of the loaf may appear to be a collection of bunched ends, but it will sort itself out during resting and baking.



  • 10 The correctly shaped final product will be smooth and cohesive. The entire process should take no more than 30 - 60 seconds.



  • 11 Rest the loaf and let it rise in the form, on the tray/pizza peel, for about 40 minutes Depending on the age of the dough, you may not see much rise during this period. That's fine, more rising will occur during baking.



  • 12 Twenty minutes before baking, preheat the oven to 450°F Place an empty broiler tray for holding water on any other shelf that won't interfere with the rising bread.



  • 13 Dust and Slash. Dust the top of the loaf liberally with flour, which will allow the slashing knife to pass without sticking. Slash a quarter inch deep cross, diagonal lines, or tic-tac-toe pattern on top using a serrated knife.



  • 14 After a 20 min preheat you're ready to bake, even though the oven thermometer won't be at full temperature yet. Put your loaf in the oven. Pour about 1 cup of hot water (from the tap) into the broiler tray and close the oven to trap the steam.



  • 15 Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the crust is nicely browned and firm to the touch.



  • 16 Store the rest of the dough in the fridge in your lidded (not airtight) container and use it over the next 14 days.




  •  


  • The flavour and texture improves, becoming like sourdough. Even 24 hours of storage improves the flavour.



  • 17 This is the standard bread. There are loads of variations - both savory and sweet - in the book.



  • I would highly recommend buying this book or borrowing it from your local library.

    Whole Wheat Strawberry Poptarts


    I found a really cool blog Cheekykitchen.com.  I cannot wait to try more of her recipes.  This recipe for poptarts was amazing!  This is her recipe with a few of my own changes in italics.

    Crust:
    1 C whole wheat
    1/2 C white flour (I used 1 1/2 cups of soft white wheat berries, milled)

    2 t sugar (I used brown sugar)
    1/2 t salt
    ½ c. cold butter, sliced
    4-5 Tbsp. cold milk 

    In large bowl, stir together flours, sugar, and salt. Cut in slices of butter using a pastry cutter (or fork, if you have to) until the largest pieces resemble peas. It’s important that you don’t touch the crust with your bare hands, no matter how tempting that mixing option might be. You want the butter to stay as cold as possible and your hands will warm it up and make the crust less flaky. Pour the milk over the mixture, one tablespoon at a time, just until moistened enough to hold the dough together. Use a fork to stir the dough after you’ve added each Tablespoon of milk. Quickly form the crust into a ball. Refrigerate until ready to use. (I stuck it in the freezer for 20 minutes and it was perfect!)
    1 prepared batch of  Whole Wheat Pie Crust (listed above)

    Fresh Strawberry Filling:
    1 T. butter, sliced
    1 c. strawberries
    1 tsp. lemon juice
    ½ c. sugar (I cut this in half)
    1 T. cornstarch (I did not have cornstarch on hand so I substituted whole wheat flour)
    Glaze:
    2 c. powdered sugar
    1 T. honey
    1 tsp. vanilla
    2-3 T. heavy cream (I used whole milk and it came out fine)
    Pink Icing gel
    Sprinkles
    In a small saucepan, combine all Strawberry Filling ingredients. Heat over medium-high heat until mixture begins to thicken. Allow to cool. On a lightly-floured cutting board, roll pie crust ¼” thick. Use a pizza cutter to cut pie dough into same-sized rectangles, approximately 4” tall x 3” wide. Spoon a 2-3 Tablespoons of the strawberry mixture on top of one of the rectangles. Gently place a second rectangle of pie dough atop. Secure edges together by pressing them gently with the tines of a fork. Transfer to a cookie sheet and bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges of the tart begin to brown slightly. Remove and cool.
    To make the glaze, stir together all ingredients until a thick, spreadable consistency is reached. Spoon a thin layer of the frosting on top of cooled strawberry tarts. Allow frosting to harden before serving.

    ENJOY!

    Fruit Leather



    This is easy, but it takes a long time so you have to be patient.

    Prep Time: 15 minutes
    Cook Time: 12-15 hours
    Serves: Probably 8 to 12 depending on big you cut them


    Ingredients:


    2 1/2 C. Chopped strawberries (or any other fruit)
    1 T. Sugar
    1/4 C. Water
    1 T. Freshly Squeezed Lemon (about half of a lemon)

    Cut strawberries and combine all ingredients in a sauce pan.  Bring to a boil and let it cook down until fruit is soft.  Pour fruit mixture in a food processor or blender and blend until pureed.

    Line baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon mat.  Spray generously with cooking spray.  Spread fruit mixture over sheet and place in a warm oven.  I put my in my warming drawer on the low setting, you could also turn your oven on 170 and dry it in there.  I would prop the door open though for ventilation if you used your oven.

    Then you let the waiting game begin!  I put mine in the oven at 7:00pm and it was ready the next morning by 7:15am.  Most recipes say you have to flip it half way through the process, but I didn't want to bother with it so I just let it be and it came out just fine!  So no extra work, always a plus! :)
