TASTE OF HOME COOKING SCHOOL

Taste of Home Cooking School at The Forum D

rop your whisks, grab your friends and join us for a night of fun at the Taste of Home Cooking School show, presented live at The Forum in downtown Rome on Oct. 19 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $4 in advance or $6 at the door. During this interactive two-hour event, you’ll watch top culinary expert, Michelle Roberts, demonstrate ten new recipes you can easily recreate in your own home — from a sweet and zesty apricot beef stir fry to scrumptious cookie dough truffles and more. Michelle conducts cooking schools throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida and the Carolinas. Her love of traveling to experience the flavors of different cities, combined with her enthusiasm for cooking allows her to share her culinary passion with people just like you. When did her love for the kitchen start? Michelle grew up helping her grandmother in the kitchen and knew at an early age that she wanted a career in food. And as an accomplished singer she can combine her two loves: being on stage and cooking. The passion continued from there. Michelle earned an Associate of Applied Science degree from CopiahLincoln Community college in Wesson, Miss., and a Bachelor of Science degree in Culinary Arts from Mississippi University for Women in Columbus, Miss. When asked what her favorite part of the cooking school experience is, Michelle replied, “I love being on stage entertaining and informing everyone about my love of cooking.” Michelle resides in Calera, Ala., with her two cats Simon and Madeline. Some of her favorite activities including spending time at

Go long on shortcuts this entertaining season The long and short of it this entertaining season: take time to party at your party! It can be done with handy timesaving tips that allow you to plan, prep, and pull it all off so when the doorbell rings, you can step out of the kitchen and enjoy special time with friends and family. “My grandmother taught me that one of the host’s jobs is to make people feel comfortable and welcome in their home,” explained Katie Lee, celebrity chef and cookbook author. “That means planning ahead is the key ingredient to a fantastic gathering. When the party begins you’re free to welcome guests and enjoy the festivities.” Lee charts out her top shortcuts and two wonderfully easy recipes to get the party started.

Michelle Roberts home when she can and watching good movies. Armed with new culinary tips and techniques, you’ll be sure to impress your family and friends with these sophisticated yet surprisingly easy-tomake dishes. Not only will you leave the event with new recipe ideas, you’ll also go home with a valuable gift bag. Our ever-popular gift bags include an assortment of products and coupons including two “Taste of Home” magazines. And while you’re there, remember to enter for a chance to win one of many exciting door prizes. For more information about the event and how to purchase tickets, visit TasteofHome.com. You cabn also find us on Facebook and Twitter. The Taste of Home Cooking School is an event you won’t want to miss. Let’s get cooking.

The Right Menu. To spend more time with guests, look for recipes that can be made in advance and require few last-minute details. One of Lee’s go-to desserts is petite Triple-Berry Mini Cheesecakes which calls for on-hand ingredients and can be prepped and ready-to-go. It’s also gluten-free, a bonus for guests who shy away from foods containing gluten. The recipe can be found at www.Chex.com/Recipes. Who’s Your Prep Cook? Sure, it would be ideal to recruit a personal sous chef to assist with kitchen detail. Realistically, turn to your handy kitchen appliances and put them to work: Maximize your microwave and create a tasty homemade snack mix, like the Pumpkin Spice Chex® Mix, in about 15 minutes. Visit www. ChexPartyMix.com for a full menu of party snacking picks; Rely on your refrigerator and organize it well beforehand so that platters, containers and beverages are easily accessible; Killer crock pot recipes get rave reviews from guests and hosts alike, especially when they do the cooking – and keep food warm – in one contained pot. Barbeque sandwich meat, chicken wings, soups and appetizer meatballs are just a few of Lee’s many slow cooker favorites. Check It Off. There are many to-dos that can be handled – or shared – in advance of the big day. Some of Katie’s recommendations include: wash and dry vegetables for a crudite platter; give the kids a job, too, like vacuuming and taking out the trash; set small vases of fresh flowers throughout the house; set the table the night before; and gather the serving dishes and utensils you plan to use.

Clinical Breast Exam Because a mammogram isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough!

Mammograms are an important tool in the fight against breast cancer. But, mammography shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be seen as a stand-alone procedure. A Clinical Breast Exam can detect up to 7% of cancers that appear normal on mammography. Some types of breast cancer arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even visible on a mammogram until they become very advanced. When coupled with mammography, a Clinical Breast Exam provides the most comprehensive evaluation and diagnosis. At The Breast Center at Floyd our specially trained professionals take the time to get it right. We use a systematic search pattern to make sure no breast tissue is missed, also taking the time to teach you how to examine your own breasts. If a breast problem is discovered, our physicians and staff work as a team to provide results in 24 hours*.

VEGETABLES / COOKING TIPS Did you smell up your microwave with burned popcorn? Place a few drops of lemon juice in a cup of water and nuke it until it is hot.

Yeast past its expiration date? Test by putting it into a quarter cup of warm water with a teaspoon of sugar. If itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still kicking it will bubble up in a few minutes.

Store freshly cut basil on your counter in a glass of water so that the water covers the stems and not the leaves. It will keep for weeks and even might grow some roots.

Spray a small oblong dish with cooking oil spray. Layer tomatoes in pan, then layer onion slices. Add salt, pepper and a pinch of Italian seasoning. Repeat until you use up all tomatoes and onions.

Cool the cakes in the pans for 5 minutes, then turn the cakes onto wire racks to cool completely. For the frosting, combine the cocoa powder, butter, corn syrup, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add the warm water; mix well. Beat in the confectionersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sugar in two batches. Beat until smooth. Place one layer top side down on a large, flat plate. Spread with 1 cup of the frosting. Top with the remaining cake layer, top side up. Frost the top and sides with the remaining frosting, swirling with a small spatula. For the topping pack the white icing down into an icing bag. Then, squeeze the bag and go around the border of the cake with the icing. Next, garnish with the strawberries in the center of the cake. Rebekah Giddens Cedar Bluff, Ala.

Heat oven to 350 F. Coat two 8 x 2-inch round cake pans with nonstick cooking spray, line bottoms with was paper and spray the paper. Beat butter, sugar, strawberries, baking powder and salt in a large bowl with mixer on high for one minute or until well blended. Add eggs; beat 2 minutes or until fluffy. Reduce speed to low and beat in milk and vanilla (batter may look curdled), then beat in flour just until blended. Divide batter between prepared pans; spread evenly. Bake 30 to 35 minutes until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean (Do not cover cakeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;this will give you a dry cake). Cool cakes in pans on wire racks 10 minutes. Run a small knife or spatula around edge of cakes to release and invert cakes onto a wire rack. Remove wax paper and cool completely. Using only 1 cup of boiling water, prepare strawberry gelatin according to package, but do not let jell. Using an ice pick, or similar utensil, punch holes in each cake layer and gently drip each with the liquid gelatin. Frosting ingredients: 1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese 1 stick of butter 3 1/2 cups confectionerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sugar 3/4 cup mashed strawberries (drained) Combine cream cheese, and butter and mix on low speed for a minute. Add sugar and strawberries. Blend frosting on low until sugar is incorporated. To assemble: place one cake layer on plate and spread top with frosting, add the other cake layer and frost the top. Use remaining frosting for the sides of the cake. Frances B. Herron Rome

Kitchen tip Because the refrigerator is humid, storing herbs and spices there is not a great idea. To keep larger quantities of spices fresh, store them in the freezer in tightly sealed containers.

Gallo women dish on favorite dishes

Change is always in the air during the fall season – temperatures begin to drop, leaves turn color and holiday plans are set. For many families, fall is also the season to change over to special seasonal family meals. Whether it’s a quiet Sunday with the grandchildren or an impromptu lunch with friends, those ordinary moments can become a memorable time for all. Gallo Family Vineyards is dedicated to preserving its own rich family heritage and inspiring others to do the same. “I’ve discovered over the years that you certainly don’t have to sacrifice quality for quantity,” said Ofelia Gallo. “A good soup is a great way to feed a full house without losing flavor.” Fall also offers a wealth of holiday meal opportunities and extended family occasions. With many root vegetables and squash hitting their peak of flavor, there’s no better time to try new recipes and bring new traditions to your family table. And don’t forget the perfect wine pairing; a detail the Gallo family knows a thing or two about. “Chardonnay’s crisp citrus and ripe fruit flavors are a nice complement to fall produce such as butternut squash. Pairing fall’s savory soups with the right wine helps complete the experience,” said Stephanie Gallo. Try serving the Gallo Family Vineyards Chardonnay alongside another Gallo family favorite, their recipe for Butternut Squash Soup with Amoretti and Soft Cream. This flavorful pairing will insure that your meal is bursting with freshness of the season. The Gallo family stands behind the quality of its products. If you aren’t satisfied with your wine, they want to hear from you. For more recipes worthy of a pass down the family tree and to learn about their Best Taste Promise, visit www.gallofamily.com.

Toss the squash with 2 tablespoons of olive oil and place on a roasting pan. Roast in a 400°F oven for about 20 minutes, or until the squash is tender. When the squash is tender, add the Gallo white wine to the roasting pan and let cool. Slice the onion and sauté with the remaining olive oil in a pot large enough to hold all of the ingredients. Add the squash and wine mixture to the sautéed onions in the pot, mix in the chicken stock and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and in two batches purée in a food processor with the butter. Season with salt and pepper to taste. When ready to serve, reheat the soup and half whip the cream in a small bowl. Drizzle cream over the soup. Crumble the amoretti cookies and sprinkle over the top of the soup. Serve immediately.

Food media begins to make switch from ‘broth’ to ‘stock’ We have heard the question asked over and over “What is the difference between stock and broth?” but NOW we are starting to see a true switch in the media, food media especially, within recipes and nutrition. What is the difference between stock and broth? The US Department of Agriculture, the agency charged with defining these terms, views the two interchangeably, so to them, there is no difference. Of course that leads to the next question, if there is no difference, then why do we need two words to describe the same thing? The answer is that for most of the 20th century, chefs, food editors and cookbook authors viewed stock as a homemade ingredient made from cooking bones, meat, vegetables and herbs then strained and stored for later use, while broth was viewed as a commercial product made from leftover liquids to which salt and enhancers like MSG were added before canning. In other words, stock was richer and better, but broth was easier and faster. That changed in 1996, when Kitchen Basics launched the first commercially available product called stock, made with the goal of replicating the quality of a homemade stock but with the readyto-use convenience of a commercial broth. Instead of putting it in a can, they picked the novel and environmentally superior Tetra Pak carton. The inspiration for this new line was provided from the childhood memories of our founder, Paul Hamerly, eating soups and other dishes made from his Belgian Grandmother, Denise Loriaux. (Lor— ee-o means oriole in French). Mrs. Loriaux made her stock by slowly simmering meat and meat bones, vegetables and herbs for hours. Once cooled in the fridge, she removed the fat from the top, digging down to scoop up the rich gelatin underneath as a key ingredient to her soups and sauces. Over the past 15 years, many other stocks have been introduced. While there is no guarantee of quality, most are better than the broths on the market. As a group, they tend to be richer and with less sodium. Many of your favorite Food editors are writing about stock and now understand that a commercial product can be high quality. On television cooking shows, in cooking competitions and in magazines, we now see recipes and nutrition guidelines that call for stock, not broth. We know that it’s hard to make healthy food choices with confidence. Kitchen Basics® embraces the very basic fundamentals of homemade stock and brings you Ready to Use Cooking Stock without added or produced MSG, additives or excess salts in 11 flavors and 3 convenient sizes. Better yet, Kitchen Basics best selling chicken, beef and vegetable stocks—both Original and Unsalted--

Keith Clark, owner of West Rome IGA, is donating two $25 gift certificates.

Directions Drain and rinse beans. In a stock pot combine beans, stock, carrot, and garlic in a sauce pan. Bring to boil, cover and simmer until soft, about 3060 minutes. Add all remaining ingredients. Reheat gently and serve. For a thicker soup: after beans, stock, carrot and garlic has simmered 30-60 minutes transfer ½ the simmering mixture from the stock pot to a blender and purée (make sure you separate ½ equally). Stir the remaining ingredients and pureed mixture into the stock pot and gently heat through and serve. Serving Suggestion: garnish with sour cream For more recipes visit www. kitchenbasics.net

King Arthur Flour: recipe for success Baking success begins with quality ingredients. King Arthur Flour is America’s #2 bestselling unbleached all-purpose flour. Known for its consistent baking performance and lack of chemical additives, it’s the #2 flour brand nationwide, # 1 selling organic flour, and #1 whole wheat flour. Visit our blog, Baking Banter (http://blog.kingarthurflour. com/2009/02/12/serious-browniepoints/), to see step by step instructions with photos of this recipe and many more. Semisweet, combing a fudge brownie’s ultramoist texture with a subtle cake-like rise, this brownie recipe delivers the best of both worlds. King Arthur Flour supports its quality ingredients with a passion for educating bakers. Can you spot the King Arthur Flour secret ingredient in this brownie recipe? You don’t taste the espresso powder, but it heightens the flavor of the chocolate. Bake with the best and earn some serious brownies points with your friends and family.

Directions

Fudge Brownies Ingredients 1 cup (2 sticks, 8 ounces) unsalted butter 2 ¼ cups (15 ¾ ounces) sugar 4 large eggs 1 ¼ cups (3 ¾ ounces) Dutchprocess cocoa 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon espresso powder (optional) 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 ½ cups (6 ¼ ounces) King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour 2 cups (12 ounces) chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9” x 13” pan. On the stove or in the microwave, melt the butter, then add the sugar and stir to combine. Return the mixture to the heat (or microwave) briefly, just until it’s hot (about 110°F to 120°F), but not bubbling; it’ll become shiny looking as you stir it. Stir in the cocoa, salt, baking powder, espresso powder, and vanilla. Whisk in the eggs, stirring until smooth. Add the flour and chips, again stirring until smooth. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Bake the brownies for about 30 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean or with just a few moist crumbs clinging to it. Remove them from the oven and cool on a rack before cutting and serving. Yield: 24 brownies, about ¾” to 1” tall. Baking Tip: Run a knife around the edge of the pan as soon as the brownies come out of the oven. This will help them cool flat, rather than with a tall ridge around the edge and a center that is sunken.

Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen brings excitement back to chicken dinner Fresh chicken is an ingredient that comes up time and time again on grocery lists, sometimes every week! And for a good reason: not only is it affordable and versatile, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most commonly prepared protein for main dinner dishes, according to a recent study conducted for Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kitchen. However, it can often be a challenge for home cooks to liven up their chicken repertoire, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to fall back on familiar, standby recipes. To solve this ongoing dilemma, the experts in Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kitchen developed exciting ways to prepare contemporary chicken dinners at home using ingredients that are likely already in the pantry or refrigerator. Not only do these meals taste great, they are at an affordable price that will fit the family budget.
