But as the price of coffee beans climbed, and the quality of instant coffee or espresso powders improved, I switched. One caveat: instant powdered coffee or espresso varies by brand. So taste the warmed cream and milk mixture, and then add more powdered coffee, if desired.</p> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-recipe-instructions"> <div class="field-label">Instructions:&nbsp;</div> <p><strong>Step 1:</strong> Preheat the oven to 300ºF.</p> <p><strong>Step 2:</strong> Put four individual gratin dishes*** on a high-rimmed baking sheet (also known as a jellyroll pan) or in a roasting pan big enough to hold them.</p> <p><strong>Step 3:</strong> In a small sauce pan over medium heat, warm the cream, milk, sugar and salt until the sugar is melted.</p> <p><strong>Step 4:</strong> In a bowl, whisk together the egg yolks. Gradually add the warm cream mixture to the egg yolks in a steady stream, stirring with the whisk (but not too vigorously; you don't want to create foam), until the cream is completely incorporated. Mix in the espresso powder and strain the mixture into a large measuring cup, or another vessel with a spout, then stir in the Kahlúa.</p> <p><strong>Step 5:</strong> Divide the mixture among the gratin dishes. Put the baking sheet of custards on the oven rack and pour enough hot water onto the baking sheet so that it reaches at least halfway up the sides of the gratin dishes. Bake the custards for 20-25 minutes, or until they are just set; watch them very carefully during the final few minutes of baking. When you jiggle the pan, they should just barely quiver. Remove the custards and set them on a cooling rack. (A wide metal spatula works well for lifting the hot custards from the water; be careful, as the custards are hot.) When cool, refrigerate until ready to serve.</p> <p><strong>Step 6:</strong> To caramelize the custards, sprinkle the tops with an even layer of sugar. It should be enough to cover the top, but not too heavily — 1-1/2 tsp for each is about right. Using a blow-torch, wave the flame over each custard, one at a time, until the sugar melts and then browns. You may need to lift and swirl the custard so that the caramel flows evenly across the top. If so, be extremely careful because the caramel is very hot and any drips will cause a painful burn. Serve immediately.</p> <p>Variations:</p> <p>To use six (4-oz.) ramekins (or custard cups) instead of the gratin dishes, prepare the recipe as described above, snugly cover the baking dish filled with ramekins with aluminum foil, and bake the custards at 325ºF for 30-35 minutes, until they are just about set, but still a bit jiggly.</p> <p>To make vanilla crème brûlée, replace the coffee and coffee-flavoured liqueur with 1 tsp of vanilla bean powder or paste. Using paste will make the custard a slightly tawny colour. Similarly, you can split a vanilla bean lengthwise and scrape the seeds out, then place both the seeds and the pod in the warm cream for 1 hour (as indicated in step 3). Remove the pod and finish making the custard with the vanilla-infused cream.</p> <p>*** For those of you who don't own gratin dishes, this crème brûlée can also be baked in six (4-oz.) ramekins. The mixture will not fill them up completely, but that is intended so you get my preferred ratio of caramel to custard.</p> <p>Reprinted with permission from David Lebovitz's <a href="http://www.amazon.ca/My-Paris-Kitchen-Recipes-Stories/dp/1607742675/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1426886383&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=my+paris+kitchen"><em>My Paris Kitchen</em></a> (2014 Ten Speed Press).</p> <p><span class="inline inline-middle"><a href="http://houseandhome.com/food/menus/recipes-my-paris-kitchen"><img src="http://houseandhome.com/sites/houseandhome.com/files/images/MyParisKitchen.jpg" alt="" title="" class="image image-_original " width="225" height="300" /></a></span></p> <div class="image-clear"></div> </div> <p><a href="http://houseandhome.com/food/recipes/coffee-cr-me-br-l-e-recipe" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Food & Entertaining Food Caramel Cream cookbook Creme Brulee David Lebovitz Dessert Dessert dessert French French My Paris Kitchen recipe Fall Spring Summer Winter David Lebovitz Fri, 20 Mar 2015 21:25:14 +0000 gmcauley 2814541-1427129181 at http://houseandhome.com Caramel Pork Ribs Recipe http://houseandhome.com/food/recipes/caramel-pork-ribs-recipe <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-chp-image"> <img src="http://houseandhome.com/sites/houseandhome.com/files/imagecache/node/top-images/recipe/12/meat-MyParisKitchen-TenSpeedPress-EdAnderson.jpg" alt="Caramel Pork Ribs Recipe - House &amp; Home" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-node imagecache-default imagecache-node_default" width="450" height="380" /></div> <div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-recipe-yield"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> Yield:&nbsp;</div> 4 servings </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-recipe-ingredients"> <div class="field-label">Ingredients:&nbsp;</div> <p>3/4 cup granulated sugar<br />1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar, light or dark<br />3/4 cup beer<br />1/4 cup bourbon<br />3 tbsp cider vinegar<br />2 tbsp ketchup<br />1 (1/2") piece ginger, peeled and minced<br />2 tbsp soy sauce<br />2 tsp Sriracha sauce, or another hot sauce<br />1 tsp Dijon mustard<br />1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper<br />4 lb. pork ribs, cut into 3- or 4-rib portions</p> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-recipe-instructions"> <div class="field-label">Instructions:&nbsp;</div> <p><strong>Step 1:</strong> Preheat the oven to 350ºF.</p> <p><strong>Step 2:</strong> Spread the granulated sugar in an even layer over the bottom of a large pot with a cover, such as a roasting pan or a Dutch oven. Cook the sugar over medium heat until it starts to melt around the edges. When the liquefied sugar just starts to darken to a pale copper colour, stir the sugar inward and continue to cook, stirring until the sugar is completely moistened. Continue to cook the sugar, stirring infrequently, until all of it is a deep copper-coloured liquid, similar in colour to dark maple syrup, and smoking (but not burnt). Tum off the heat and stir in the brown sugar, then add the beer. The mixture will seize and harden, which is normal.</p> <p><strong>Step 3:</strong> Let the mixture cool down a bit, then stir in the bourbon, cider vinegar, ketchup, ginger, soy sauce, hot sauce, mustard, and pep­per. Put the ribs in the pot and turn on the heat until the sauce boils and bubbles up. Turn the ribs a few times in the liquid, cover, and roast in the oven for 1 to 2 hours, until the ribs are tender. During the roasting, remove them from the oven and turn the ribs over two or three times.</p> <p><strong>Step 4:</strong> Remove the lid from the pot and continue to roast, turning the ribs a few times, for 30 minutes more, or until the juices have thickened a bit. Remove from the oven, skim any visible fat from the surface of the liquid, and serve.</p> <p>Reprinted with permission from David Lebovitz's <a href="http://www.amazon.ca/My-Paris-Kitchen-Recipes-Stories/dp/1607742675/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1426886383&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=my+paris+kitchen"><em>My Paris Kitchen</em></a> (2014 Ten Speed Press).</p> <p><span class="inline inline-middle"><a href="http://houseandhome.com/food/menus/recipes-my-paris-kitchen"><img src="http://houseandhome.com/sites/houseandhome.com/files/images/MyParisKitchen.jpg" alt="" title="" class="image image-_original " width="225" height="300" /></a></span></p> <div class="image-clear"></div> </div> <p><a href="http://houseandhome.com/food/recipes/caramel-pork-ribs-recipe" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Food & Entertaining Food Pork barbecue BBQ cookbook David Lebovitz Dinner Dinner & Main Course French French My Paris Kitchen Pork pork recipe Ribs Summer Barbecue party Canada Day Spring Summer David Lebovitz Fri, 20 Mar 2015 21:15:21 +0000 gmcauley 2814526-1427129077 at http://houseandhome.com Paring Back For Spring http://houseandhome.com/design/tips-paring-back-spring <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-chp-image"> <img src="http://houseandhome.com/sites/houseandhome.com/files/imagecache/node/top-images/articles/12/sept2014-pg75-andrerider.jpg" alt="Paring Back For Spring - House &amp; Home" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-node imagecache-default imagecache-node_default" width="450" height="380" /></div> <p><a href="http://houseandhome.com/design/tips-paring-back-spring" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Design Tip of the Day Decluttering minimal organizing Spring Cleaning Tip of the Week tips Jennifer Koper &amp; Gwen Matsell Fri, 20 Mar 2015 04:00:00 +0000 gmcauley 2814521-1426885802 at http://houseandhome.com Tom Blachford's Architectural Photo Series http://houseandhome.com/design/news-tom-blachfords-architectural-photo-series <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-chp-image"> <img src="http://houseandhome.com/sites/houseandhome.com/files/imagecache/node/top-images/articles/11067056/midnight-modern-palm-springs-house-and-home.jpg" alt="Tom Blachford&#039;s Architectural Photo Series - House &amp; Home" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-node imagecache-default imagecache-node_default" width="450" height="380" /></div> <p><a href="http://houseandhome.com/design/news-tom-blachfords-architectural-photo-series" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Design News Architecture California mid-century modern News palm springs photography Tom Blachford Stacy Lee Kong Fri, 20 Mar 2015 04:00:00 +0000 Stacy Lee Kong 2814311-1426857338 at http://houseandhome.com Eclectic L.A.
