Rich Homemade Caramel Popcorn

A homemade caramel popcorn snack idea that shockingly buttery, rich, salty, sweet, and one of the easiest popcorn recipes you can think of. A homemade popcorn that is better than any store-bought snack at a fraction of the price! A delicious afternoon snack that you can serve to your family.

There are a few common mistakes to avoid while making that popcorn you love. Many people want to be efficient when making popcorn. Hence, they tend to dump all of the kernels into one pan and let it pop. This technique causes a problem as it ends up burning the kernels that popped previously. If the recipe calls for 1 cup of corn kernels then, divide the cooking process into 2.

Oil is another essential part of the cooking process. Choosing the right oil is key to successful popcorn. Oils such as olive oil, walnut oil, and other unrefined oils are a no-no for this recipe. High smoking point oils such as almond oil, corn oil, canola oil, grapeseed oil, peanut oil, safflower oil, and vegetable oil are the best to use when making popcorn

You can add different flavors to the caramel mixture. Adding a few cinnamon sticks or a teaspoon of anise seeds to the sugar at the beginning will add a nice kick that will elevate the flavor of the caramel and the popcorn. Lavender lover? Well, throw some dried lavender into the caramel to infuse flavor and aroma. Cardamom pods are also a great addition to the caramel sauce; just make sure to strain it after infusing.

1 cup popping corn kernels
1/2 cup barley
8 tbsp vegetable oil
3 cup sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter
¾ cup water
salt to taste

Delectable Creamy Risotto

This creamy risotto is an excellent savory side dish that you can pair with braised oxtail recipes. This is a rice and cheese recipe with a taste similar to classic risotto, but with a bit more style.

Arborio rice is short-grain rice used primarily in the preparation of risotto. Arborio rice has more starch present since it undergoes less milling than medium grain rice. So, Arborio rice must be cooked slowly with a hot liquid to release its creamy starch content without becoming mushy.

Manchego cheese is made from sheep's milk. It has Spanish origins and is traditionally served with quince paste. It has a nutty, yet salty taste. If you can't find Manchego cheese at your local grocers, you can replace it with the Asiago, Muenster Cheese, or English Cheddar.

If your local grocers doesn't have arborio rice, you can use sushi rice as a substitute. To substitute sushi in this risotto, make sure you don't rinse it first, as keeping the starch in the dish will yield a greater result.

5 tbsp butter
1 (¼ cup) arborio
4 cups chicken broth
4 cups water
2 eggs
1 cup Manchego
4 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp bread crumbs
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Savory Braised Oxtail in Wine

Transform this braised oxtail into something rich and succulent for an incredibly satisfying and delicious meal for the entire family. A flavorful and easy oxtail recipe that you can prepare in just an hour for your next family meal.

Oxtails are an underrated cut of meat. People tend to choose the cuts they are more familiar with. Cuts like oxtails are only used by chefs and other culinarians — who have ample time to develop flavor using time-consuming techniques. Oxtail can sometimes be hard to find except in specialty butcher shops. But, they are worth the effort. These cuts are gelatinous and have a full flavor and texture when cooked right.

Tomato puree would be a perfect addition to this recipe. It adds a depth of flavor that balances the acidity of the wine and the sweetness of the vegetables. If you prefer using the traditional way of cooking the oxtail without the use of a pressure cooker, then you can simmer the oxtail for 3-4 hours until tender.

Adding fresh herbs such as thyme, basil, and parsley would be a perfect addition. Roasting the oxtail for 1 hour before transferring to the pressure cooker, adds another dimension of flavor and creates a nice color on the oxtail's outer layer.

Salisbury Steak Recipe

This homemade salisbury steak recipe is an amazing dinner idea or lunch for the whole family. A delicious homemade salisbury steak with a rich and creamy mushroom sauce. This kid-friendly recipe is a great way to transform humble ground beef into something amazing.

This recipe has a softer and tastier salisbury patty than you might expect. You may also grate the onions rather than mincing them.

Citrusy Fish Escabeche Recipe

This delicious escabeche recipe is a perfect quick and easy weeknight meal. This extraordinary fish recipe is an excellent light meal for dinner.

Escabeche is a dish of Spanish origin in which seared meat or fish is marinated in an acidic marinade. Fish escabeche is similar to ceviche. However, the fish is partially cook.

It works great in quick fish tacos. Just take a basic cheese taco and add a bit of the fish, peppers, and onions. Normally you wouldn't use melted cheddar in a fish taco, but because the cheese cuts through the acidity, it works. You can eat the escabeche a few hours after you prepare it, but it will be better if you let it marinate for half a day. The fish will firm up and have a better texture.

You can add half of the habanero to add a little heat to this citrusy escabeche.
