Cooking with Coffee

cooking-with-coffee-ebookThe reason for this book is my love of Gourmet Coffee. There are so many countries that produce excellent coffees. I have spent most of my adult life seeking out and trying new countries and new flavors.

Every country has their own unique flavors. Every degree of roasting, from light to darkest French roast, creates a new taste experience.

Good coffee is like good wine. Savor the bouquet and unique body and flavors. If you drink coffee and you haven’t embarked on your own journey you are missing out on a wonderful experience. You owe it to your self to start today.

A natural result of my love for gourmet coffee was using it as an ingredient in cooking. Coffee’s rich, smoky flavors can enhance all manner of dishes.

Coffee flavoring is distinctive in most dessert recipes, but when adding to meat dishes, it tends to bring out the meat flavor without an overpowering coffee flavor. Try some of these coffee recipes to perk up your home cooking. The coffee in these recipes may be in brewed, whole bean or granulated form so be sure to read the recipe thoroughly before beginning to be sure you have the proper ingredients.

How To Make Wine At Home

HowToMakeWineAthome-219x150When I was in high school, me and a friend of mine heard this rumor that we could take some grape juice,
add some sugar,
throw in some yeast,
put a balloon over the bottle and then wait a month and we would
have – ALCOHOL!
And that is what we were after at that time.

And it worked! We sat down on a Friday afternoon and passed that jug back and forth and within an hour, we were both acting very stupid. Ahhh… those were the days.

Unfortunately, I wouldn’t drink that stuff now. Almost 30 years later, I have come to enjoy GOOD wine. Wine that costs $35 to $60 a bottle.

You could call me somewhat of a wine connesuier.

About 15 years ago, it came to my attention that it was possible to get the same kind of flavor and consistency by making wine at home. From that moment on, I began experimenting.

This book will show anyone how to get a very good start on making quality wine from home. No need to keep paying huge prices, AND,
you can make all you want…sort of.
The U.S. Government has put a limit on us – 200 Gallons/year. That’s the law. But – that’s 1000 bottles of wine – about 3 bottles a day, plenty for you and me.

Gluten Free Living

It’s Healthier & Easier Than You Think!

GlutenFreeLivingA lifestyle that is healthy and promotes a good quality of life is important. As a parent, it is also one of the best gifts you can give to your children. Food is a necessity for our bodies to thrive but we live in a society were eating habits have moved in the wrong direction.

A lack of time, a lack of information, and the availability of processed foods has resulted in obesity, increased health risks, and reduced lifespan. These negative outcomes can make life difficult due to reduced energy, not being as alert, and an array of potential health problems.

If you are interested in making positive changes for yourself and for your household, consider the gluten free living option. You may be saying you are too busy for gluten free diet programs or that you will be limited in the foods you can buy.

However, this doesn’t have to be the case. There are plenty of recipes and variety that are easy to make. There are more restaurants and grocery stores today that offer gluten free options than in the past. This is a lifestyle change that you will find there is a great deal of support surrounding and that makes it possible to successfully incorporate.

Until now, you may not have paid too much attention to gluten. Yet it is in so many of the foods that the average person eats without thinking twice about doing so. It seems to be everywhere you look now that you are making the effort to exclude it from your diet.

Instead of focusing on that negative fact though, focus on the positive changes you are going to make and the opportunity that you have to improve your overall well-being. As you learn more about gluten free products you can make better choices that help you.

All The Info On Eating For A Healthy Life

EatingHealthy-S-e1445980855765The primary and first to be used energy system is the aerobic system. This system uses oxygen for the function of the muscles and does demand quite a lot from the general body system.

This demand usually increases the rate and depth of breathing and blood supply mainly because of the corresponding increase of the heart rate.

When the body requires more energy which cannot be met due to the elevated need for more oxygen then the body system automatically switched to the anaerobic energy system. This system is able to produce energy without the need to use oxygen.

All this energy is generated through the suitable or correct consumption of foods. The foods consumed dictate the types of energy levels each individual is capable of producing.

Muscle fatigue usually occurs when all the energy sources are exhausted which can be attributed to a variety of reasons; the most compelling one depends very much on the types of foods consumed.
There are several categories of foods that produce various beneficial elements for the human body system and noting the ones that create or enhance the energy generating sources is

definitely useful to know. Therefore this knowledge should help the individual choose the right types of foods.

The aerobic system works by breaking down the carbohydrates, fatty acids and amino acids in the foods consumed while the anaerobic system releases energy from the foods stored in the body, usually during intense activity bouts.

Recipes Bringing Warmth And Joy To Your Family

Gingerbread
CreativeCulinary_PbackSmlThis is a story that somebody’s great-great-grandmother  told a little girl ever so many years ago:There was once a little old man and a little old woman, who lived in a little old house at the edge of a woods. They’d have been a very happy old couple but for one thing — they had no small child and they yearned-for one very much. One day, when the little old woman was baking hot gingerbread, she cut a cake in the shape of a little boy, and put it into the oven.

Before long she went to the oven to see if it was baked. As soon as the oven door was opened up, the little ingerbread boy leapt out, and began to run away as fast as he could go.

He jumps from her oven and takes to the woods. The woman and her husband chase after him but fail to capture him. The gingerbread boy then outruns a lot of farm workers and farm animals while teasing them with the phrase:

I have run away from a little old woman,
A little old man,
And I can run away from you, I can!
In some retellings, The Gingerbread Boy taunts his pursuers with:
Run, run as fast as you can;
You can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man.

Chocolate and Cocoa Recipes and Home Made Candy Recipes

Chocolate_Cocoa (3)The term “Cocoa,” a corruption of “Cacao,” is almost universally used in English-speaking countries to designate the seeds of the small tropical tree known to botanists as THEOBROMA CACAO, from which a great variety of preparations under the name of cocoa and chocolate for eating and drinking are made.

The name  “Chocolatl” is nearly the same in most European languages, and is taken from the Mexican name of the drink, “Chocolate” or “Cacahuatl.”

The Spaniards found chocolate in common use among the Mexicans at the time of the invasion under Cortez in 1519, and it was introduced into Spain immediately after. The Mexicans not only used chocolate as a staple article of food, but they used the seeds of the cacao tree as a medium of exchange…
