Union Square Cafe Hot Garlic Potato Chips

2 bags good quality unflavored potato chips, such as Cape Cod or Zapp's brand
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon finely chopped or pressed garlic
Salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Place the potato chips on a sheet pan and place in a preheated 300 degrees oven until hot.

While the chips are warming in the oven, heat butter and garlic in a saucepan without allowing the garlic to brown. Place the hot chips in a bowl large enough to hold them comfortably.

Working quickly, drizzle the garlic butter over the chips and toss them to coat. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and chopped parsley. Toss again to distribute. Serve immediately. Makes 10 to 12 appetizer servings.

Union Oyster House Clam Chowder

Post  justmecookin on Mon Oct 13, 2008 1:16 pm

Union Oyster House Clam Chowder

10 cups clam juice
2 pounds baking potatoes, like russets, peeled and diced
4 pounds fresh or frozen clams, shelled and diced
1/4 pound salt pork, diced
2 small onions, diced
1 cup butter
1 cup flour
2 pints half-and-half
Salt and pepper
Dash hot pepper sauce
Dash Worcestershire sauce

Bring the potatoes and the clam juice to the boil. Cook until the potatoes are tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. Add the clams and any of their liquid. Cook about 5 minutes. Set aside.

Add the pork to a sauté pan and cook over low heat until rendered. Add the onions and cook until transparent. Add the butter and allow it to melt. Add the flour and cook until slightly colored.

Uptown Cafe's Empress Carlotta Cake

Post  justmecookin on Thu Oct 16, 2008 12:00 pm

Uptown Cafe's Empress Carlotta Cake

For Chocolate Genoise:
6 eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
4 ounces cake flour
3 tablespoons cocoa

For Chocolate Mocha Buttercream:
6 tablespoons strong coffee
1 1/2tablespoons instant coffee
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 pound butter, softened
6 egg yolks
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

For Kahlua Cream:
3 cups whipping cream
3/4 cups powdered sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons Kahlua liqueur

For Topping:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups slivered almonds, toasted

To make the chocolate genoise: Whip eggs and sugar on high speed for 3 minutes. (A stand mixer is very useful for this sort of technique.) Place the beaten eggs over a pot of simmering water, being careful not to let the bowl touch the water. Stir eggs constantly until warmed by the steam.

When the egg and sugar mixture feels warm to the touch (a bit over 100 degrees), mix again on high speed until tripled in volume, 5 minutes or more.

Sift together the cake flour and the cocoa. Gently fold dry ingredients into the egg and sugar mixture until thoroughly blended.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 10-inch cake pan. Line with a round of parchment paper, and butter the paper. Dust with flour, and tap out excess. Pour the genoise batter into the cake pan, and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until cake tests done and sides pull slightly away from sides of the pan. Transfer to rack to cool.

To make the mocha buttercream: Stir together the coffee and the instant coffee in a small pot, and bring to a boil. Stir until instant is dissolved. Remove from heat, and stir in chocolate chips until smooth. Cool.

Whip butter until light. Add yolks one at a time, beating until smooth. Slowly add sifted powdered sugar. Then add the mocha mixture. Beat until blended.

To make Kahlua cream: Whip cream until foamy. Gradually add powdered sugar while continuing to whip to stiff peaks. Fold in Kahlua to taste. Chill.

To assemble cake: Carefully slice the genoise into two equal layers. Sprinkle the bottom half with 2 tablespoons Kahlua to moisten the cake. Spread the Kahlua cream filling on the bottom cake half. Sprinkle the cut side of the top half with 2 tablespoons Kahlua and place top layer on cream filling.

Frost top and sides of cake with the mocha buttercream. Sift 1/2 cup powdered sugar over top of cake. Press toasted almonds onto sides of cake. Makes 8 to 10 servings

Underdog Diner Fresh Strawberry Cake

Post  justmecookin on Fri Oct 17, 2008 9:22 am

Underdog Diner Fresh Strawberry Cake

Non-stick vegetable spray, for coating the pans
1 1/2 cups cake flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon lemon extract
3 large eggs
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 pints fresh strawberries
1 recipe whipped cream frosting

Whipped Cream Frosting:
1 teaspoon gelatin
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees with a rack in the middle of the oven. Lightly coat 2 (9-inch) cake pans with nonstick vegetable spray. Line the bottoms with a circle of baking parchment.

Into a large bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt together, 3 times. In a small saucepan, bring the milk and butter to a boil. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla and lemon extracts. In separate mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until pale yellow, and fluffy, and doubled in volume.

While still beating, drizzle in the hot milk mixture. Fold in the flour mixture. Spread the batter in the prepared pans and bake for 15 minutes, or until golden, the center springs back when lightly pressed, and a cake tester comes out clean. Set the pans on a rack to cool. Run the tip of a knife around the edges of the cakes to loosen them, and turn them out of the pans.

Whipped Cream Frosting: In a medium bowl, mix together the gelatin and 1/4 cup of the cream. Let rest for 5 minutes to soften, then place the bowl over barely simmering water until the gelatin has completely dissolved.

Remove the bowl from the heat and let cool to tepid. In the meantime, in a mixing bowl, whip the cream until slightly thickened. Add the confectioners' sugar and vanilla and whip to the consistency of shaving cream. Fold 1/2 cup of the whipped cream into the gelatin mixture, then fold in the rest.

Wash and dry the strawberries. Pick out the 12 best. Stem and slice the rest. Lay the sliced berries over 1 cake, then spread a 1/2-inch layer of whipped cream on top. Place the second cake over the first. Frost the entire cake with the remaining whipped cream. Top with the 12 whole berries. Makes 12 servings

1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Vegetable oil for frying
1 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted

In a medium bowl, soft together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add the sugar and stir the dry ingredients with a whisk until combined.

Uno's Deep Pan Pizza

Post  justmecookin on Fri Apr 03, 2009 5:54 pm

Uno's Deep Pan Pizza

1 cup water warm
1 teaspoon yeast, active dry
3 1/2 cups flour, all-purpose
1/2 cup cornmeal coarse, ground
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 pound mozzarella cheese sliced
1 pound sausage removed from the casing, crumbled
16 ounces tomatoes, canned whole tomatos, drained and coarsely crushed
2 cloves garlic minced
3 teaspoons oregano leaves or 5 fresh basil leaves, shredded
4 tablespoons parmesan, parmigiano-reggiano cheese, grated fresh, grated

Pour the warm water into a large mixing bowl and dissolve the yeast with a fork. Add 1 cup of flour, all of the cornmeal, salt, and vegetable oil. Mix well with a spoon. Continue stirring in the rest of the flour 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl. Flour your hands and the work surface and kneed the ball of dough until it is no longer sticky.

Let the dough rise in an oiled bowl, sealed with plastic wrap, for 45 to 60 minutes in a warm place, until it is doubled in bulk. Punch it down and kneed it briefly. Press it into an oiled 15 inch deep dish pizza pan, until it comes 2 inches up the sides and is even on the bottom of the pan. Let the dough rise 15-20 minutes before filling.

Preheat the oven to 500 degrees. While the dough is rising, prepare the filling. Cook the crumbled sausage until it is no longer pink, drain it of it's excess fat. Drain and chop the tomatos. When the dough has finished its second rising, lay the cheese over the dough shell. Then distribute the sausage and garlic over the cheese. Top with the tomatos. Sprinkle on the seasonings and parmesan cheese.

Bake for 15 minutes at 500 degrees. Then lower the temperature to 400 degrees and bake for 25 to 35 minutes longer. Lift up a section of the crust from time to time with a spatula to check on its color. The crust will be golden brown when done. Serve immediately.

Bake crust in oven for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Spread 2 cups cheese on crust, top with 3/4 cup tomato sauce. Sprinkle remaining 2 cups cheese, Romano cheese and oregano on top.

Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, rotating the pizza every 15 minutes. The crust should be golden brown, and the cheese should be bubbling. Remove from oven, cool for 3 minutes. Remove pizza from the pan using a spatula, cut and serve. Serves 6 to 8.
