Michele Wray of Ellicott City wrote a brief note. "My mother-in-law is searching for the recipe that she used about 30 years ago in central Pennsylvania. It is for a burnt-sugar cake which has caramelized sugar mixed through the batter. The result is a caramel flavor. You can use any icing you want to." Jackie Lee Eng of Cooksville responded. "When I read the request, it sounded familiar. So I went to my grandmother's recipe box and indeed there it was in Grandma Leeper's handwriting. I do not know the origin of the recipe, but Grandma was born in Missouri in 1904 and moved to Washington state during the Great Depression of the 1920s.

I just bought a cookbook that has various recipes calling for brown sugar. One recipe wants light brown, another, dark brown. Then, I also need white. I just can't see myself buying three types of sugar. You can make do with two: dark brown and white. Brown sugar is a funny product, and to appreciate the joke you need to know how sugar is made: After sugar cane is crushed, the impurities in the "juice" are filtered, boiled and skimmed off before the clear liquid is crystallized into white sugar.

What is Demerara sugar and what can I use as a substitute? Demerara sugar is a type of semi-unrefined sugar named after the Demerara River in Guyana. A Dutch colony on the river's banks, also called Demerara, was the site of one of South America's earliest sugar-cane works. Sugar must be laboriously extracted from plants - either sugar cane or beets. Sugar cane is a tall, fat grass whose stalks are woody and jointed like bamboo. Once harvested, the cane is crushed and the "juice" is subjected to a battery of refining operations to remove impurities before being crystallized into white sugar.

Take a walk on the wild side with homemade Chocolate & Chilie Cookies.They start, of course, with theobromas (food of the gods), better known as chocolate. Chocolate was the favored drink of the Aztecs, who believed it had aphrodisiac properties.To spice things up, I add a shot of ground chilie pepper.So there's no mistake: I'm talking about ground peppers, not chili powder, which contains other spices than peppers. I'm talking about the mature capsicum or pepper, harvested, dried and ground into a rich full-flavored compound.

Strawberry margarita Serves 1 This is my version of the margarita. It’s like a margarita got stilettos. 1 oz tequila blanco 1 oz fresh-squeezed lime juice Splash of lemon-lime simple syrup (see recipe below) 1 C strawberries and 1 C ice Combine all ingredients together in blender and blend until smooth. This recipe is a little light on the tequila, as I have some tequila horror stories I’m still living down. Feel free to ramp it up if you’re of stronger stock.
