Lemonade Cake with Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting (cookiesandcups)

Cake

1 lemon boxed cake mix
4 eggs
1 1/4 c milk
1/3 c vegetable oil
2 T lemonade from concentrate, thawed

Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray 2 8″ round cake pans generously with cooking/baking spray. Set aside. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix cake mix, eggs, milk, vegetable oil and lemonade on low for 30 seconds and then on medium for 2 min, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. Keep the remaining frozen lemonade concentrate in the freezer…you will need it again. Bake for 25 – 30 min or until cake is set and toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cakes cool in pan, approximately 1 hour. Do not remove.

Glaze

2 T lemonade from concentrate, thawed
1 c powdered sugar
1 T water

When the cakes are cooled level them off with a serrated knife, so they are flat on top. If the cakes didn’t dome much and don’t need to be leveled, poke holes with a skewer throughout the top, so the glaze will sink in. In a medium bowl combine powdered sugar, lemonade and water. Stir until smooth and pour equally over the top of the cakes, still in the cake pans. Cover and let sit for at least an hour or overnight in the refrigerator is best.

Frosting

1  8 oz pkg cream cheese, room temp
1/2 c butter, room temp
1/4 c lemonade from concentrate, thawed
1/2 t vanilla
6 c powdered sugar

In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, mix butter and cream cheese together for 2 min on medium speed until combined and creamy. Turn mixer to low and add your lemonade and vanilla. Slowly add in your powdered sugar and then beat on medium for 1 – 2 min until smooth, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. When ready to frost, remove your cakes from the refrigerator. Loosen cake around the edges with a butter knife so they will release easily. Frost as desired.

No Bake Peanut Butter Fudge Swirl Pie (togetherasfamily)

1 prepared Oreo pie crust
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c creamy peanut butter
2 c Cool Whip
1/4 c hot fudge sauce, warmed

Combine cream cheese, sugar, peanut butter and Cool Whip in a large bowl and blend together with a hand-held blender until combined and creamy. Pour into the Oreo crust and smooth the top. Drizzle warmed hot fudge sauce over the peanut butter mix and use a toothpick or wooden skewer to swirl the fudge into the peanut butter. Just gently skim the top, don’t go down into the pie when swirling. Cover and let refrigerate for at least 4 hours. Can also refrigerate overnight. Note: To warm the hot fudge sauce put into a microwave-safe bowl and warm for about 25 – 30 seconds.

Korean Skewered Chicken (Dakkochi) (closetcooking)

1 lb chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
3 cloves garlic, grated

1/2 small onion, grated
1/2 Asian pear, grated
1/4 c soy sauce
1/2 T sesame oil
1 T brown sugar
1 green onion, chopped
1/4 t pepper

Mix everything in a freezer bag and marinate for at least an hour. Skewer the chicken on wet that have been soaked in water about 20 min and set aside. Strain the solids from the marinade and simmer the marinade until it thickens and becomes saucy, about 5 – 10 min. Grill the chicken until cooked, about 5 min per side basting it with the marinade as you go.

Korean Style Steak (leitesculinaria)

3 T sugar
6 T soy sauce
2 T oil & more for the grill rack
2 T toasted sesame oil
1 T grated peeled fresh ginger
3 cloves garlic, grated or minced
1 smallish shallot, minced
Kosher salt or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 lbs hanger steak (can sub skirt steak, sirloin flap steak or flank steak)
handful thinly sliced scallions, for serving
toasted sesame seeds, for serving

In a large shallow bowl stir together sugar, soy sauce, oil, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, shallots and salt and pepper to taste until the sugar has dissolved. Add the steak turn to coat it with the marinade, and let it sit at room temp for 15 min. Preheat a gas or charcoal grill until medium-hot. Lightly brush a paper towel with vegetable oil and using tongs rub the grill rack with the oiled paper towel. Transfer the steak to the grill, discarding the marinade. If desired, season the steak with salt and pepper, keeping in mind the soy sauce in the marinade contains quite a lot of salt. Grill the steak, flipping halfway through until cooked to your liking, 10 – 12 min total for medium-rare, depending on the thickness of your steak. Transfer the steak to a cutting board and let it rest for at least 5 min. Thinly slice the steak at an angle against the grain, transfer to a platter and top with the scallions and sesame seeds.

Kahlua and Cream Cheesecake (chocolatechocolateandmore)

Crust

2 1/4 c Brownie Brittle or other chocolate wafer cookie, crushed
1/2 c melted butter

Put Brownie Brittle into a ziploc bag and crush it with a rolling pin (or food process it until it is crumbs). Put in the bottom of a 10″ springform pan and mix in the melted butter. Press evenly into the bottom of the pan. Pour onto prepared crust. Wrap the pan in 2 layers of aluminum foil and set in a baking dish. Pour water into the baking dish until it is half way up the sides of the springform pan. Bake in a 300° F oven for 2 hours. The top should be golden brown. Let cool. Top cheesecake with Kahlua whipped cream. Note: A half batch of the Kahlua Whipped Cream is enough to top the cake. The full batch gives more volume.

Cheesecake

32 oz cream cheese
2 c sour cream
5 eggs
3/4 c Kahlua
1/2 c sugar
2 T cornstarch
1 1/2 t vanilla paste or vanilla

Put mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for about an hour before making whipped cream. Also, make sure everything else is well chilled before starting. Beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Add Kahlua and gelatin and beat until stiff. If it’s still too liquidy, refrigerate for an hour to give the gelatin time to work and then beat again.

Slow Cooker Beef Brisket (carlsbadcravings)

Slow Cooker

4 – 5 lbs beef brisket, trimmed of excess fat
1 c water
1 T beef bouillon
2 T Worcestershire sauce
1 T reduced sodium soy sauce
1/2 c homemade barbecue sauce (see below)

Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a large baking sheet with sides/jelly roll pan with parchment paper or foil for easy clean up. Set aside. Spray 6 qt (or larger) slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Trim brisket of excess fat and rinse and pat dry. If your brisket is extra long then slice it in half so it will fit in your slow cooker. Rub all remaining Spice Rub evenly all over the meat then place brisket on prepared baking sheet. (You can let sit at room temp for 30 min or refrigerate up to 24 hours if desired). Bake uncovered for 30 min at 425 F to sear meat. Add 1/2 c barbecue sauce to slow cooker along with water, Worcestershire, soy sauce and beef bouillon. Whisk to combine (the bouillon will not be completely dissolved but will dissolve during cooking). Using tongs (so you don’t burn yourself) carefully transfer brisket to slow cooker. It will be large so you will have to squish it in. Not all of it will be under the liquid. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 – 10 hours until brisket is very tender, flipping over half way through cooking. If your brisket is tough, it just needs to cook longer. Remove brisket to a foil lined baking sheet. Brush with barbecue sauce and broil 5 – 10 min until slightly caramelized. Meanwhile, microwave or simmer remaining barbecue sauce until warmed through. Brush brisket again with barbecue sauce and slice across the grain or chop if desired. Serve with remaining barbecue sauce plain or they make delicious sandwiches. Make Ahead: Can cook brisket until tender then remove the removable ceramic insert and refrigerate the brisket in the juices. The next day, skim off all the hardened fat then cook on LOW in the slow cooker for 1 – 2 hours until warmed through and proceed with recipe.
