Hello All,
I don't usually send recipe that I haven't tried but I want to try
this one, maybe over the holidays, and I thought is would be one that
Hallie would especially like as it came from a mystery.

It is not a simple recipe, but actually has 4 parts and is rather long.
I hope some of you like this kind of dessert.Bobbie

Chez Sophia's Torta Milano

Recipe By : Ellen Hart
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
Sponge Cake:
8 eggs -- separated
1 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons orange juice
2 teaspoons orange zest
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups flour
Simple Sugar Syrup:
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light rum
1/4 cup orange liqueur -- (Triple Sec or Cointreau)
Pastry Cream:
2 1/2 cups milk -- divided
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 pinch salt
6 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup finely diced dried apricots
1/2 cup heavy cream
Whipping Cream:
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Sponge Cake: Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the bottom of a 13x9
inch cake pan. Butter the pan, then place the parchment on top of
it. Butter the parchment. Preheat the oven to 325 F.

After separating eggs, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Slowly
add 2 cups of sugar, beating until thick and shiny stiff peaks form

In a separate bowl, beat the egg yolks with 1/4 cup sugar until they
turn pale and the texture becomes ribbonlike. Add the orange juice,
zest and salt and beat well.

Using a rubber spatula, fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg
whites. Sift flour over the mixture and fold in.

Pour the batter into the pan. Bake until the top is golden and the
cake begins to pull away from the sides, about 30 minutes. Remove the
cake and cool at least 20 minutes. Invert the cake onto the platter.
Choose a platter that's a good 2 inches wider than the cake. (A
silver platter is recommended of course.)Cool completely before
removing the parchment paper.

Simple Sugar Syrup: Place water and sugar in saucepan and bring to a
boil over Medium heat. Stir occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Boil
one minute. Remove from heat and cool.
Combine the sugar, water, rum and the orange liqueur.

Pastry Cream: Heat 1 1/2 cup of the milk in a saucepan over Medium
heat until bubbles form around the edges of the pan. In a bowl, whisk
together the 1/2 cup sugar, the cornstarch, salt and the remaining 1
cup of cold milk until the cornstarch is all dissolved. Pour about
half the hot milk into the cold milk, whisking constantly until the
sugar is dissolved. Scrape the mixture in the bowl into the pan and
heat over Medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture comes to
a boil and gets thick, about 2-3 minutes.

Whip the egg yolks together in a bowl until mixed well. Slowly add a
bit (1/3 to 1/2 cup) of the milk mixture, beating the yolks
constantly. Then add the egg mixture slowly to the milk mixture in
the saucepan and return to the heat, stirring constantly until
thickened. Remove immediately and stir in vanilla. At this point it
is a good idea to strain the pastry cream. Then add the diced
apricots. Cool to room temperature covered with plastic wrap directly
on the surface. This prevents a skin from forming on the top. Chill

Whipping Cream: Whip the cream and sugar before assembly.

Assembly: With a long, preferably serrated knife, cut the cake
horizontally into three even layers. Brush the bottom layer with
about 1 third of the syrup. Spread one-third of the pastry cream over
the top. Next spread about 1 cup of the sweetened whipped cream. Top
with the middle layer of the cake. Repeat, one third of the sugar
syrup one-third of the pastry cream and one cup of whipped cream. The
final layer goes on next. Top with the rest of the syrup and pastry
cream and all but 1/2 cup whipped cream. At this point the cake
needs to be refrigerated for 2 hours or up to a day.

To serve, pipe the 1/2 cup reserved whipped cream decoratively around
the top. Serve with fresh blueberries, strawberries, apricots,
raspberries or whatever fresh fruit is available. Arrange the fruit
decoratively around the sides.

Serves 12 or eight pigs

I also normally make my chili in large batches. Like you I also like my
chili straight up. I usually have it with Cornbread and topped with
Sweet onions and a scoop of sour cream. When I make a batch I eat some
right away and pour the extra into 2" deep metal pans and put them in
the freezer until almost hard. I then cut it into one serving blocks and
transfer it to individual freezer bags. I do the same thing with my beef
stew. I always leave it in the refrigerator for at least a day before
going the freezer route. I sometimes use ground meat,but old fashion
chili always uses cubes and never beans. I make different styles for
different uses. With beans and ground meat to go over rice,pasta or
mashed potatoes. All ground meat to go on Hot dogs and Hamburgers. Cubes
for eating straight up.

I never met a chili I didn’t like!  I make chili in a large, 18-quart

containers for the freezer. 

My problem is that “heat” tolerance is pretty low at this house (my wife
and granddaughter) except for my grandson and me.  Others are sort of in
the middle.  So, I have to make it pretty mild and then add spiciness at
the table.  Most of our family like to eat chili on pasta, but I like it
straight up, hot and topped with fresh onions.

I also use corn muffin mix (Jiffy, usually) to thicken the chili.  I get
those small boxes and keep them handy.  I seldom make chili with beef
cubes, but I would like to try this recipe.  And I seldom add water but
I use beer and broth for the liquids. 

There is no chili in the freezer right now and it is about time to make
some.  My jalapenos need picked also.  Maybe next week!


We all have Chili recipes,but this one looked interesting so I tried it.

Chili con Carne

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 6 to 8
Categories : Chili,Mexican

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ -------------- ------------------
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes
2 teaspoons minced chipotle chilies in adobo sauce
4 slices bacon, chopped fine
1 (3 1/2- to 4-pound) boneless beef chuck-eye roast, trimmed and cut
into 1-inch pieces
Salt and pepper
1 onion, chopped fine
1 jalapeño chile, seeded and chopped fine
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 cups water
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons yellow corn muffin mix

Process tomatoes and chipotle in food processor until smooth. Cook
bacon in Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp, about 8 minutes. Transfer
bacon to paper towel-lined plate and reserve 3 tablespoons bacon fat.

Pat beef dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Heat 1
tablespoon reserved bacon fat in empty Dutch oven over medium-high heat
until just smoking. Brown half of beef, about 8 minutes. Transfer to bowl
and repeat with additional tablespoon bacon fat and remaining beef.

Add remaining bacon fat, onion, and jalapeño to empty Dutch oven and cook
until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in chili powder, cumin, oregano, and
garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in water, pureed
tomato mixture, bacon, browned beef, and sugar and bring to boil. Reduce
heat to low and simmer, covered, for 1 hour. Skim fat and continue to simmer
uncovered until meat is tender, 30 to 45 minutes.

Ladle 1 cup chili liquid into medium bowl and stir in muffin mix; cover with
plastic wrap. Microwave until mixture is thickened, about 1 minute. Slowly
whisk mixture into chili and simmer until chili is slightly thickened, 5 to
10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve. (Chili can be refrigerated
for up to 3 days.)

Dave's Note:

I would never thought of using corn muffin mix for the thickening
agent,but it adds just a touch of corn flavor.

PS. Don't substitute ground beef. It won't taste the same.

I know. Not the dreaded Christmas fruit cake.

My Mom and Dad used to make this every year about 6 weeks before

1/4 cup ground flax seed
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Add flour mixture to banana mixture; beat just until blended. Pour batter into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350F for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven; cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack. Remove bread from pan; place on wire rack.

4. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon melted butter, remaining 1 tablespoon cognac, and powdered sugar; stir until well blended. Drizzle over the warm bread.

-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 eggs
1 teaspoon herb salt
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cups mushrooms -- chopped
2 scallions -- trimmed and chopped
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 1/2 cups mild cheddar cheese -- grated
4 tablespoons butter

Beat together eggs, herb salt, Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl.

Mix in mushrooms, finely chopped scallions, bread crumbs and cheese.

Shape into 8 1/2" thick patties

Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Fry patties in
one or two batches until crisp and brown, about 3 minutes per side.

NOTE: I made these the night before because of time constraints and
distance to travel. Not a good idea. They were okay, but would have been much
better if they had been freshly made - the mushrooms yielded all their
juices and made a mess. Should have happened in the pan.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
3/4 cups half and half
1 1/2 cups Fontina cheese, shredded (Can substitute white cheddar)
