Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup 2009

Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup 2009

Here are some seasonal ideas culled from Brooklyn Farmhouse for your Thanksgiving meal – from starters to sides to dessert. I don’t include a turkey recipe because I always make Tom Colicchio’s Herb Butter Turkey – it’s the best. Happy Thanksgiving! Starters and Nibbles Spicy Crock-Pot Apple Butter – Serve with cheddar or brie (or [...]

Gooseberry Margaritas with Cayenne-Salted Rims

Gooseberry Margarita with Cayenne-Salted Rim

I like margaritas. A lot. But I’ve come to detest commercial sweet and sour mix, because it is super high fructose corn syrupy. And that just doesn’t taste good. So, aside from making my own sweet and sour mix (easy to do, btw), I like to think about seasonal fruit that can be used in [...]

Bourbon Milkshakes

Bourbon Milkshake

Brooklyn Farmhouse has had a sweet tooth lately, but I couldn’t resist sharing yet another dessert recipe with you – albeit a rather more grownup dessert. I totally stole this idea from a restaurant in Portland, Maine called Fore Street; after having my first bourbon milkshake there, I wondered why this idea had never crossed [...]

Rhubarb Mojito

Rhubarb Mojito

It’s Spring! Rhubarb is here! Yay Rhubarb! OK, sorry. Did I mention I love rhubarb? And have you ever noticed what a weird word “rhubarb” is? After a day of rhubarb experimentation in my kitchen that resulted in rhubarb pudding (my husband: “tastes like baby food”), I decided to drown my culinary sorrows with these [...]

Homemade Candied Ginger, Ginger Syrup, and Ginger Ale

Homemade Ginger Ale

A trifecta of ginger deliciousness! Actually, the candied ginger is a byproduct of the ginger syrup (or is ginger syrup the byproduct of candied ginger??): you can’t create one without the other.  I had a bit of a hankering for homemade ginger ale, because it’s so much spicier than store bought and I felt like [...]

Pomegranate Champagne Punch

A cup of pomegranate champagne punch

Pomegranates, mint, and lemon slices make this champagne punch super festive for the holidays. Pineapple juice adds a bit of sweetness, while rum and triple sec both add a bit of punch to the punch. I made an ice block using mint and pomegranate seeds; instructions are below. This recipe is adapted from Epicurious. Happy [...]

Sweet and Sour Mix

Sweet and Sour Mix

Who really likes commercial sweet-and-sour mix, with it’s high fructose corn syrupy non-goodness? Knock the socks off of your cocktail party guests with margaritas made with a homemade version of the stuff. Or make a killer Tom Collins with it. You probably won’t ever want to go back to the pre-packaged mix. Sorry. Ingredients 1 [...]
