    Xtra Holiday Meal: Cheesecake prep



    4 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
    1 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 large eggs
    1 egg yolk
    6 tablespoons sour cream
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    Eli's Cheesecake - Food Service Extranet - Recipes
    NOTE: The crust recipe has a flaw. It should read 1/4 cup butter.

    All ingredients mixed. I was told a key to a great cheesecake is to not over mix it.



    Crust placed in bottom of spring form pan and filled with cheesecake batter.



    Baked!

    Xtra Holiday Meal: Mac & Chz prep

    6 tablespoons butter
    5 1/2 cups half&half
    1/2 cup flour
    2 teaspoons kosher salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    9 ounces colby jack cheese
    9 ounces sliced muenster cheese
    2 cups 4% fat cottage cheese
    1 pound rigatoni

    In a sauce pan make a roux with the butter and flour. Let this cook on low for about 2 minutes. Turn up to medium high.Add milk while whisking. Add spices and continue whisking. As this starts to thicken, add the colby jack. Whisk in, about another 2 minutes. Do not let this get above 160 degrees or the dairy will break from the rest of the ingredients. This will look like it is curdling. Take off heat and cook rigatoni according to directions. One exception, cut the cooking time by 3 minutes. This is going to bake in the oven and finish cooking the pasta. After pasta is cooked add the cottage cheese to the cheese sauce.

    Assembly.



    In a greased 9 x 13 baking dish pour two ladles of the cheese sauce followed by 1/2 of the rigatoni. Top with muenster cheese.



    Place remaining rigatoni and then the remaining cheese sauce. Make sure all of the pasta is covered with cheese sauce.



    Bake @ 325 for 40 minutes

    2011 Holiday Meals: Hits and Misses

    The Miss

    1. ChocoVine - There was something very unnaturally sticky about this. Not good on any level.



    I should have stayed with what I knew was good.

    2011 Holiday Meals: Hits and Misses

    The Hits

    1. Kosher salt crusted prime rib - I liked the results.



    I will age and season differently next year.

    2. Pesto Focaccia Bread - Very tasty! This was the first time I used any kind of pesto in bread dough. Great flavor.



    I even made another batch with a softer dough for sandwiches.



    3. Baked Alabama - I was very happy how this turned out. Every component of this dish could stand on it's own.



    4. Brioche rolls - Applying any condiment to this bread would be gilding the lily. nuff said.



    5. Salad dressings - These are always a hit.
