Hello My Friends:

I have just be inspired by a picture here on +google, to make a recipe off the top of my head.
Now if this is already your recipe then please let me know and I will give you the credit. Please prove by giving me the recipe site url.

Now until I can make these and photograph them I'm going to give you the url where I saw the picture.

Chocolate Caramel Marshmallow Bites

Chocolate wafer/biscuit on the bottom.
Add a thin layer of caramel or dulce de leche. Just enough to make the marshmallow stick.
Dip bottom in melted chocolate to a little over the bottom of the marshmallow.
Add thin layer of caramel on the top.
Drizzle with chocolate.

For more complex flavour put brown sugar on top and torch lightly until sides are golden and sugar is melted.
Now drizzle chocolate.

Optional: Sprinkle with Edible Gold Dust.

Enjoy!

The recipe you have been waiting for.
 
No more teasing!

This recipe I got from Taste of Home years ago. It has been a family must at Christmas time.
Make this recipe and you won't be sorry! The creamy eggnog flavour without being overly rich is something you will keep coming back for more. Sure to become a family favourite.

I wanted to let you know why I haven't been on my page.

Some know I am looking after my 93 year old Mama.
She was in the hospital for 3 weeks before Christmas and has been diagnosed with early stage Dementia and lung cancer.
I have opted to have her at home, where..please God, she will be able to die at home. We don't know how long she has to live. I am her sole caregiver and needless to say I am run off my feet.
Please keep us in your prayers.
I will get here as often as I can.

The google page was messed up.
I had to shut it down. When I reopened it, it worked fine.
Collections are post you can save. You name a collection.... cats. Then any posts you like with cats you can save to your collection.
You can have as many collections you like.
Beside the share button on a post is a down arrow.
Click this and you can save the picture, recipe etc. to your collection.
It should allow you to name a new collection.
I hope this helps

I have a new recipe my friends!
This one I made up myself,  so remember you found it here First
Yesterday was busy day and I forgot to take something out for supper.
So I used what was in the fridge, leftover chicken, fettuccini and
I made one cheat on this….. I used a pkg. of Knorr Bernaise Sauce.
But I think homemade would be better.  The Food Lab has a good one by Kenji.
This was So good!  I decided that it was worthy of sharing with you.  I pray you enjoy it.

Not a very good pic, but I hope you will forgive me.

Chicken Bernaise Fettuccini 
serves 2

I cup         Leftover chicken
2               Fettuccini nests
1 recipe   Bernaise Sauce

Make Bernaise Sauce

Boil Fettuccini nests  (If fresh only need 2 minutes)

Drain fettuccini, add chicken and mix.

Put on plates, and cover with Bernaise Sauce.

Can be served with Garlic Bread.

Note:   The addition of Broccoli or Grape Tomatoes would also be lovely.

P.S.   If you find Bernaise Sauce rich, you can cut the Butter in half.

Hello my friends!

Here is a cake recipe that someone on the board asked for.  It is so good.
  It looks like a lot of steps, because I break up the instructions for my daughter (type of dyslexia).   It is really easy to do.

Fruchte Schaum Torte
Oetker





Batter

6 Egg Yolks
1/4 cup Sugar  
2        pkg. Oetker Vanilla Sugar  ( I use about 1 tsp. vanilla)  
2 Tbsp Hot Water
5-6 Drops Oetker Lemon Essence  ( about 1/4 tsp. Lemon extract)
6 Egg Whites
1 Cup All-purpose Flour
1 Tsp. Oetker Baking Powder  ( any brand)

Filling

2 Cups Whipping Cream
2 Pkgs. Oetker Whip-it       ( This is a stabalizer,  2-3 Tsp. Cream of Tarter, maybe more)
1/4 Cup sifted Icing Sugar
2 Pkg Oetker Vanilla Sugar  (1tsp. vanilla)
3/4 Cup Strawberry Jam           ( same of macerated strawberries thickened w/ a bit of cornstarch and water;  filling can be doubled)

Topping

2 Cups Fresh or Frozen Strawberries, halved

Glaze

1 Pkg. Oetker Clear Glaze  (any clear glaze will work)
1/4   Cup Sugar
1 Cup Water or Strawberry Juice  ( I use the clear, so that I don't stain my whipping cream)
2-3 Tbsp Brandy  (optional, I don't use it.  I like the taste of fresh strawberries
 on it's own.) 

Note

I put my decoration of strawberries on last and don't bother glazing them.

Batter

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Grease and flour 10 1/2” spring form pan.

Combine egg yolks, 2/3 cup of sugar, vanilla sugar (vanilla), hot water and lemon

essence (lemon extract) in a large bowl.

Beat at high speed w/electric mixer until thick.

Beat Egg whites and remaining 1/3 sugar, to stiff peaks.

Sift flour and baking powder together over egg yolk mixture.

Fold gently but thoroughly.

Fold egg whites, gently into egg yolk mixture.

Turn batter into prepared pan.

Bake at 325F for 45-55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in cake comes out clean.

Remove from pan immediately and let cake cool completely.

Slice cake horizontally to make 3 layers.

Filling

Beat cream in small bowl to soft peaks

Gradually add Whip-it (cream of tartar) , icing sugar, and vanilla sugar (vanilla), 
beating until stiff. 

Do Not overbeat.

Reserve 3/4 cups, for decoration.

Spread jam (macerated strawberries) on bottom of cake layer.

Cover with 1/3 of whipped cream.

Repeat with remaining layers.


Decorate

Decorate top attractively w/ strawberries.

Combine clear glaze, sugar, water, and brandy (optional).

Prepare according to pkg. for glaze.

Spoon hot glaze over strawberries.

Decorate with reserved cream.

Chill in refrigerator until serving time.

Any leftovers, cover lightly w/ plastic film and refrigerate.

Introduction
Welcome to My Joyful Kitchen

I'm Charlie:    A Christian, a Mom and Grandma.               
I love cooking and baking and sharing what I have accomplished.

I am  of the opinion that there really aren't any new recipes.  I believe that recipes evolve with time and as people tweak.  I'm sure if we look in history there is already a recipe that is close to what we are making, from years and years ago, maybe centuries ago is the original.

So please feel free to look and copy recipes.

Please if you make one of my recipes, please put a review about it on the post!

Have a Joyful Day :~D
