Updating eighties kitchen
Prepare the cranberry-almond filling: Drain the dried fruit from the liqueur and reserve the liqueur for another use.
In a small bowl, combine the drained fruit with remaining filling ingredients. Shape the dough: When dough has doubled in size, punch it down and turn it out onto a lightly floured board, kneading just enough to release any air bubbles. Crumble the filling over the dough to within 1 inch of the edges.
I'm sure there were toys and books, and I vaguely remember something in the early eighties about a sought-after Esprit outfit, but the holiday memories that stick out most in my mind are the meals.
On Christmas Eve, we threw a tamale party, and the Christmas morning tradition was always a big spread of scrambled eggs, bratwurst, Mexican hot chocolate, and a braided Christmas bread from the tattered pages of a 1978 Sunset Magazine. The original bread recipe included a filling that called for teeth-shattering candied red and green cherries.
Blend in the milk, sugar, butter, salt, cardamom, eggs and lemon peel. Dump the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead until smooth, 5 to 10 minutes. Place in a lightly oiled mixing bowl large enough to accommodate dough when doubled in size.
Cover with plastic wrap and let it rise in a warm place until doubled in bulk, about 1 1/2 hours.
The last few years have seen a huge surge in the popularity of farmhouse style, but what about previously popular decorating trends like shabby chic. Shabby chic is defined by layers of worn paint on furniture and simple fabrics like cotton and linen.
There is even a retractable screen covering the entire terrace for year-round comfort. The private dining room for 14-120 guests is in a gorgeous glass wine cellar displaying 2400 bottles of wine.In my recipe redux here, I also upped the amounts of filling and glaze — the "saucing" as my daughter says. My daughter, now eight, will add her hands to the braiding effort and continue this cycle of absorbing holiday food traditions from the generations of cooks before her.When you bake this Holiday Breakfast Wreath, present it to someone you love, still warm, with two hands. Prepare the dough: In a large mixing bowl, dissolve the yeast in the water and let it foam up for a minute or two. Add remaining flour 1/2 cup at a time until you have a soft, workable dough — you might not need to use all the flour.While the wreath is baking, stir together the ingredients for the glaze and set aside.When wreath is done, transfer to a cooling rack by picking up the sides of the parchment and then sliding the parchment out from underneath.
