Red And Black Cake Recipe

1 pound dark chocolate
3 large eggs
18 ounces cottage cheese with high fat content
3 ounces flour
1-1/2 tablespoons potato starch
1 teaspoon baking powder
3-1/2 ounces sugar
5-1/2 ounces heavy cream
3-1/2 ounces butter
Pinch of salt
9 ounces strawberries, hulled

Sift flour with potato starch and baking powder. For ganache, bring 3-1/2 ounces of cream almost to boiling. Break up 7 ounces chocolate. Pour hot cream over chocolate pieces and mix well until chocolate is completely melted. Refrigerate for 4-5 hours or overnight. For batter, melt 3-1/2 ounces chocolate with half of the butter in a double boiler or in the microwave oven. In a mixer, beat eggs with half of the sugar and with a pinch of salt until stiff, white and fluffy, about 10 minutes. Add dry
ingredients. Pour in the butter/chocolate mixture. Mix on low speed until uniform. Pour batter into a parchment-lined 8-inch round cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, or until a wooden pick comes out clean. Turn over onto a rack, remove parchment and cool the cake completely. Cut cooled
cake into 2 layers. For filling, melt remaining chocolate in 2 ounces warm cream, let cool and carefully stir into cottage cheese. Mix in remaining butter and sugar. Assemble the cake: Cover the bottom layer with 1/3 of the filling, place strawberries on top and cover them with another 1/3 of the filling. Top with the second cake layer, coat it with remaining filling and refrigerate overnight. Whip the ganache and evenly spread over cake.

Our family is always happy when I bake this very simple (and yummy) when they come to visit. It does call for the larger 18.25 oz. cake mix, so will have to add 6 tbsp. cake mix extender or 6 tbsp. of a 2nd dry lemon cake mix, storing the rest to use another time.

Apple Lemon Cake Recipe

1 (18.25 oz.) lemon cake mix
3 eggs, beaten
1 can apple pie filling

Crumb Topping:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp. butter, melted
1 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup chopped pecans

Mix by hand in large bowl, the cake mix, eggs and apple pie filling. Put batter into greased and floured 9 x 13 inch pan. Combine crumb topping and sprinkle over the top. Bake at 350 for 40 to 45 minutes till tests done.

Vegetable Casserole Recipe

1 whole spaghetti squash
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 red pepper, diced
1 zucchini, diced
1 carrot, shredded
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tomato, diced
16 ounces tomato sauce
4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Poke spaghetti squash all over with a knife and cook in the microwave for eight to 12 minutes until soft. If you don't have a microwave, place the poked squash on a baking pan and bake at 375 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes. While that's cooking, add the oil, garlic, pepper, zucchini, and carrots to a pan, cooking over medium heat. Cut the squash in half, scoop out the seeds, and with a fork, scrape the flesh from the peel. It should flake off easily in strings, resembling spaghetti. Place the spaghetti squash flesh in a casserole dish. Add the cooked veggies, diced tomato, sauce, and most of the cheese and mix well. Sprinkle leftover cheese on top and bake for 30 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly. Allow to cool for five minutes, serve, and enjoy

US Food and Drug Administration latest recalls. 

For ~ Donna.

Summer squash (zucchini & yellow & pattypans if small) don't need peeled before cooking & are even good raw, in salads or marinated & chilled.

Winter squash (there are lots of kinds but acorns & butternuts are probably most common) DO need to be peeled if being cut up, then cooked. But acorns especially can just be halved, seeded, filled with something yummy, then baked till tender in 1/4 - 1/2 ' of water. No need to peel to see if you like them.

All are delish & good for you, too, and there are oodles of ways to cook them. Have fun!
Marilyn in FL

For Donna,
Summer squash like yellow squash, zucchini or patty pan squash need not be peeled before slicing and boiling for 5 or 6 minutes or sautéing in butter until tender. Winter squash like acorn squash or butternut squash should be peeled and boiled or peeled and cut up used in a recipe or to put into soup OR simply cut it in half, unpeeled, scoop out the seeds and fill the cavity with a couple of tablespoons of butter, a pinch of salt and a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar or honey and bake for 1 hour at about 350 degrees or until tender when pricked with a fork in the center. The following is a microwave recipe for a delicious soup that I have served both hot and cold.

Spinach Rolls Recipe

1 lb. fresh pizza dough (or store bought)
1 lb. fresh spinach, washed, drained and coarsely chopped (frozen spinach wont work; too much water)
1 small onion, chopped
grated cheese to taste
pinch of red pepper
olive oil
1 egg beaten

Roll out pizza dough into thin rectangle and place on greased cookie sheet.

Spread chopped spinach evenly over dough. Sprinkle with chopped onion, cheese and pepper. Drizzle olive oil over, then gently roll dough jellyroll fashion, making sure the seams is on the bottom shape into a crescent.

Using a fork, poke 8 to 10 holes in the dough, so it can breathe and brush roll with beaten egg.

Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Slice and serve cold or hot.

Tip: you may use chopped broccoli or shredded mozzarella for spinach.
