A Tasty Tate’s Bake Shop Giveaway Just for You!

Cookie lovers rejoice, I have a scrumptious cookie to tell you about!

You may recall that the first Tate’s Bake Shop giveaway on my blog was last December and now I’m honored to say that Denielle from Tate’s Bake Shop just offered me another of their super giveaways for all of you wonderful readers out there!  

Tate's Bake Shop, Southampton, NY

Kathleen King, owner and founder Tate's Bake Shop

Just when I thought it couldn’t get any better - Kathleen King, owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, located in Southampton, NY, created her Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookie.  In fact, it is so delicious that it won ~ GOLD ~ in the Cookie category in the 2011 sofi™ Awards, presented at the Fancy Food Show (known as the Oscars® of the specialty food industry) in Washington, DC. 

Yum!  My new fave cookie!  Tate's Bake Shop Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip!

So, I was thrilled when the 3 bags of Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies arrived on my doorstep!  Sophisticated and delicious fits them perfectly!  The cookies are like the original Tate’s Chocolate Chip variety ~ thin and crispy ~ but incorporate whole wheat flour and sinfully rich, dark chocolate chips.  

The result is an incredible deep, full-bodied taste packed with healthy whole grain, tempting both healthy cookie aficionados and chocolate lovers also.  

These cookies amazed both Bill and I ~ they are exceptionally delicious and you will not believe that something this heavenly can come out of a bag!

Now for the fantastic giveaway - here’s what Kathleen and Tate’s Bake Shop have for you if you are the lucky winner:   3 bags of the Whole Wheat Dark Chocolate Chip cookies and a copy of The Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook, signed by Kathleen King with the foreword written by Ina Garten of the “Barefoot Contessa” fame.

I love, love The Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook!  It’s chock full of tantalizing recipes, such as:  Mocha Pecan Muffins, Pear Crisp, Sweet Potato Pie, Cranberry Crumb Cake, Tres Leches Cake, Multigrain Muffins, Crème de menthe Pie, Persimmon Cookies, Orange and Oat Chewies and Lemon Pound Cake which to Bill’s delight,  I will be baking soon.  Watch my blog for that in the next week or two.

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!

Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts 2 eggs, beaten 1 cup Parmesan cheese 1 cup Italian bread crumbs ½ tablespoon garlic powder ¼ teaspoon salt ¼-½ teaspoon seasoned pepper ¼ cup Wishbone Robusto Italian Salad Dressing 4 teaspoons butter

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 

The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …

The Best Lemon Pound Cake ~ I’m Telling You the Truth!

On my September 27th post, I told you I would be baking the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook that Bill had been yearning for.  I finally got around to baking it and now I’m trying to figure out what took me so long…

You know how foodies say, “I swear, it’s the best I’ve ever eaten?”  Sometimes I try the recipe, sometimes I don’t.  Everyone’s taste is different and you just never know; however, I can honestly say, “this Lemon Pound Cake is the best pound cake I have ever eaten in my life.”  And Bill echoes the same.  NO LIE!!!  It is outstanding!!!
Here’s what Kathleen King, the owner and founder of Tate’s Bake Shop, says about her cake, “The lemon flavor really comes through in my lemon pound cake.  It keeps well and freezes well, and is exceptional on its own or with fresh berries and cream.”

Here’s what I say about it:  Enjoy it on its own!   If you love lemon and love pound cake, you will fall hard for this one!  It’s so good that after having a slice of it, …

Crispy Spicy Jicama Chips

It’s a “Mexican potato” that is in season year-round, looks like a turnip; has either tan, brown or gray skin, with a crisp juicy, refreshing, slightly white, flesh on the inside, resembling an apple.

It’s as easy as a potato to peel and I’ve discovered, it’s just as good roasted as it is raw.It’s jicama ~ Spanish: hee-kah-mah.

Jicama is traditionally served raw, dunked in chili powder, lime and salt to boost its mild flavor; or in a salsa or salad.I’ve only had jicama raw, in a salsa, so I had a big surprise when I bit into a slice of roasted jicama!

A friend, Yvonne, gave me this recipe and I’m glad she did.   Jicama is quick and easy to roast, and retains its crispy crunch and sweetness when it comes out of the oven.  Thinly slice it, dredge with a spicy mixture and roast it to a crunchy chip-like texture.  Roasted jicama is a great substitute for potato chips!  
Here are some jicama tips:
Choose jicama with smooth, thin unblemished skins, a slight shine is an indication of freshness.

“He toasted his bacon on a fork and caught the drops of fat on his bread; then he put the rasher on his thick slice of bread, and cut off chunks with a knife, poured his tea into his saucer, and was happy.”
