This month Rosie and Maria of Sweet and Simple Bakes ofered us a wonderful and healty...recipe ! I substituted millet for oats but the result was good anyway, the cookies are, as promised, sweet and simple !!
Preheat the oven to 180oC (350oF), Gas Mark 4. Cream the butter in a large bowl or in an electric food mixer until soft. Add the sugars and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the egg, water and vanilla extract while still beating. Reduce the speed and gently mix in the oats, flour, salt and raisins to form a dough. Using your hands, roll the dough into walnut sized balls and place slightly apart on two baking trays. Bake in the oven for 12-25 minutes or until light golden brown but still slightly soft in the centre. Allow to cool on the trays for a minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
This month Shawnee of Delishes Delishes and Temperama of High on the Hog chose flambè as a very nice shiver in our kitchens !! I really liked the meat even if Andrea bought it too thin, but it was really full of nice smells and flavours. Thank you !! And please visit the blogroll for more fire !!
Method 1. Rub the medallions of beef with the mustard, season with salt and pepper and set aside. 2. Heat a large frying pan over a medium heat and when hot, add the clarified butter and Worcestershire sauce. 3. Add the shallots and mushrooms, and push to the centre of the pan. Arrange the medallions around the edge. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring and tossing the mushroom mixture as you go. If you prefer your steak well done, give it an extra minute or 2. 4. Add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. 5. Turn the steaks over and pour in the cream and chives. Tilt the pan slightly (away from you) and pour in the brandy at the far end. Now turn up the heat to high so that the brandy ignites. Swirl the sauce around in the pan and turn off the heat. 6. Put the medallions on 4 plates, pour over the sauce and serve.
Disclaimer:We do not require that you flambé, if you choose to flambé and burn down your kitchen, don't sue us. If you choose to flambé try and get a picture (I recommend getting someone to help). Remember when playing with fire keep a fire extinguisher close and never use water on a cooking fire.
