~13 Going on 30...Week-End




Phew it's been a busy last few weeks for me. I haven't been able to blog much, but I still wanted to get out your week-end movie. So here it is ! I love this one let me say...13 going on 30!

A 13 year old girl plays a game on her 13th birthday and wakes up the next day as a 30 year old woman.



"Flirty, Fluffy at 30 Kiss Marshmallow Cookie"

* 3 tablespoons cornstarch
* 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
* Vegetable oil cooking spray for pans
* 1 package (2 1/2 teaspoons) unflavored gelatin
* 1/3 cup cold water for gelatin, plus 1/4 cup for syrup
* 1 cup granulated sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* Red food coloring
* 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted

Directions

1. Mix cornstarch with confectioners' sugar in a small bowl. Coat two rimless baking sheets with cooking spray. Cut parchment to fit pans, draw 1 1/4-inch circles, and place on baking sheets, ink side down; spray with cooking spray. Dust with cornstarch mixture to cover completely; shake off excess. Sprinkle gelatin over the 1/3 cup cold water in a mixer bowl. Let stand to soften, about 5 minutes.
2. Heat remaining 1/4 cup water and the granulated sugar in a small pan over medium-high heat, stirring, until dissolved. Place a candy thermometer into syrup; wipe sides of pan with a wet pastry brush if crystals have splattered up. Boil, without stirring, until temperature reaches the soft-ball stage (238 degrees). Remove from heat; add to softened gelatin. Hand-stir with the whisk attachment a few seconds to cool; place bowl on mixer stand. Whisk on medium-high until soft peaks form and mixture holds a shape, 8 to 10 minutes.
3. Whisk in the vanilla and a small drop of red food coloring (for pale pink). Transfer half the mixture to a pastry bag with a 1/2-inch tip (such as Ateco #806), and pipe kisses inside circles on baking sheets.
4. Add another drop of food coloring to the mixture in the bowl, return to mixer, and whisk to blend. Transfer marshmallow mixture to the pastry bag, and pipe remaining kisses.
5. Let stand at room temperature until set, about 4 hours. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 2 days.
6. To assemble, place a small dab of melted chocolate on each cookie, and top with a kiss. Let stand to harden. Store airtight at room temperature up to 1 day. Serve at room temperature.

Makes 100 cookies

* 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
* 6 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
* 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* 1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
* 1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions

1. Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla in a mixer bowl on medium speed. Beat in flour and salt until just combined. Shape into a disc; wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours or up to overnight.
2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to about 1/8 inch thick. Cut out with a 1 1/4-inch round cookie cutter; transfer to prepared pan. Freeze 30 minutes to harden.
3. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bake until cookies just begin to brown around the edges, 16 to 18 minutes. Let cool briefly on parchment, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 5 days.

~Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood...Week-End



Yay the week-end is here again! Time for your movie & yummy treat. Have a good one!
Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood
After years of mother-daughter tension, Siddalee receives a scrapbook detailing the wild adventures of the "Ya-Yas", her mother's girlhood friends.



Sandra's Bullock's Ya-Ya Pumpkin-Banana-Mousse-Tart
PUMPKIN- BANANA MOUSSE TART
www.RecipeGirl.com

CRUST:
2 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 14 crackers)
1/3 cup granulated sugar
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ lb (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

FILLING:
½ cup half and half cream
15 ounce can unsweetened pumpkin puree (not pie filling)
1 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
¾ tsp kosher salt
½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp ground nutmeg
3 extra-large egg yolks
1 package (2 tsp.) unflavored gelatin
1 medium ripe banana, finely mashed
1 tsp finely grated orange zest
½ cup cold heavy whipping cream
2 Tbs granulated sugar

TOPPING:
1 cup (½ pint) cold heavy whipping cream
¼ cup granulated sugar
½ tsp pure vanilla extract
orange zest, optional

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. Prepare crust: Combine crust ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour into an 11-inch tart pan with a removeable bottom and press evenly into the sides and then the bottom. Bake for 10 minutes and then cool to room temperature.

3. Prepare filling: Set heat proof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Add half & half, pumpkin, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg to bowl. Whisk until mixture becomes hot, about 5 minutes.

4. Whisk egg yolks in a separate bowl. Stir a spoonful of the hot pumpkin into the egg yolks to heat them. Then stir in another spoonful. Keep adding spoonfuls until the egg mixture becomes warmed. Scrape the pumpkin/egg mixture back into the heated bowl and stir well. Heat the mixture over the simmering water for another 4 to 5 minutes, until it begins to thicken, stirring constantly. You don’t want the eggs to scramble. Remove from heat.

5/ Dissolve gelatin in ¼ cup of cold water. Add the dissolved gelatin, banana and orange zest to the pumpkin mixture and mix well. Set aside to cool.

6. Whip heavy cream in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment until soft peaks form. Add the sugar and continue to whisk until you have firm peaks. Carefully fold the whipped cream into the pumpkin mixture and pour it into the cooled tart shell. Chill for 2 hours or overnight.
7 For the topping: Whip the heavy cream in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment until soft peaks form. Add the sugar and vanilla and continue to whisk until you have firm peaks. Pipe or spoon the whipped cream decoratively on the tart and sprinkle, if desired, with orange zest. Serve chilled.

Servings: 10

~Arsenic and Old Lace...Week-End



Happy Halloween Week-end Everyone! In Hour of this week-end I bring you a great film with the one and only Cary Grant!!!I hope you enjoy!
Arsenic and Old Lace (1944)
A drama critic learns on his wedding day that his beloved maiden aunts are homicidal maniacs, and that insanity runs in his family.


"Apple Cupcakes With Carmel and Not Arsenic "
http://cupcakeblog.com/?p=60
Apple Cupcakes
9 regular cupcakes / 350 degree oven

2-3 apples, granny smith
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup apple juice
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Rinse and core the apples. Place them on an ovenproof pan or baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes until soft.
2. Remove the apples from the oven, let cool slightly, then remove peel and mush the apple with the back of a fork. Measure out 1 cup of apple mush and set aside to cool.
3. Combine flour, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt in a medium sized bowl and whisk to combine.
4. Crack the eggs into a separate, medium sized bowl and beat with a form to break up. Add the oil, apple juice, vanilla, and cooled apple mush and mix to combine.
5. Combine the wet and dry ingredients until all ingredients come together.
6. Scoop into cupcake papers about 3/4 full so cupcakes will have a significant dome. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-22 minutes, rotating the pan after 15 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.

Cream Cheese Filling

4 ounces Philly cream cheese
1/4 stick butter
2 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

1. Be sure to bring the butter to room temperature by letting it sit out for 1 or 2 hours. Then beat the butter vigorously with an electric mixer.
2. Scrape the bowl and add the cream cheese and beat until combine.
3. Add the sifted powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until smooth.

Fill Cupcakes
1. Cut out a cone from each cupcake. Flip the cone and cut off the excess. Set the top aside.
2. Fill each cavity with the cream cheese filling.
3. Replace each top.

Thick Caramel

1/2 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
6 ounces sweetened condensed milk
1 tablespoon heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Bring the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and sweetened condensed milk to a boil over medium-high heat stirring to combine.
2. With a wooden spoon, stir all ingredients together and then slowly add the heavy cream.
3. Continue to stir for about 20 minutes until the caramel reached 248 degrees. It is important to continuously stir the mixture and to allow it to reach temperature.
4. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and salt. Transfer to a bowl and continue to stir for 2-3 minutes allowing the caramel to cool slightly.

Final Assembly
1. Using a small offset spatula, frost each cupcake with the caramel.
2. If desired sprinkle warm caramel with any number of toppings, like coconut or crushed nuts.
3. Transfer the cupcake into the freezer to allow the caramel to set without dripping over the edge of the cupcake paper.
4. Continue frosting and topping the cupcakes and try to work fast. As the caramel cools, it becomes less spreadable. If possible work in pairs and let your helper top the cupcakes and transfer them to the freezer. By the time you reach the last few cupcakes, you will not longer need to freeze them and you can take all the cupcakes out and transfer them to the counter.
5. Top off each cupcake with a popsicle or craft stick to finish off the look.
