Old-Fashioned Baked Custard

4 eggs

1/2 cup of sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups of scalded milk

1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg

Beat eggs lightly with a fork. Stir in sugar, salt and vanilla. Add a little of the hot milk to the egg mixture and stir; add remaining milk and mix well. Strain. Pour into either a 1 quart mold or 8 individual molds; sprinkle with nutmeg. Set mold or molds into a pan containing about 1-inch of hot water. Bake at 350F for 50 60 minutes or until firm.

To test: run a sharp knife through the centre if knife comes out clean, then custard is done. Serve as is or unmould into serving dishes and you can always top the custards with fresh strawberries or other delicious fruits!

And as with all my other recipes here are some variations:

Chocolate custard: Add 1 square of unsweetened chocolate, melted with the vanilla

Fruit custard: Fold in 1 cup of canned or fresh fruits with the vanilla

Old-Fashioned Baked Rice Pudding

This is one of my favourites actually, to be honest, I try not to make it very often, because I love eating it too much! Try it and let me know if you could stay away from it especially when it is still warm ! Yummy!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup of long grain rice
2 cups of milk
1 cup of water
1/2 tablespoon of butter
1/3 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/3 cup of raisins

Directions:

Stir all ingredients (except raisins) together in a buttered 1-1/2 quart casserole.
Bake in a slow oven (300F) for 1 hour without disturbing the rice.
Reduce temperature to 250F and continue baking for 1-1/2 hours more.
Add raisins 1/2 hour before removing from the oven. You can also sprinkle either cinnamon or more nutmeg over the top just before the pudding finishes baking.

Fat from soup and stews can be eliminated by dropping ice cubes into the pot. Then stir and the fat will cling to the ice cubes. Remove the ice cubes after a few seconds.

1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1/4 cup chopped fresh thyme leaves
1/4 cup chopped fresh oregano leaves
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 lb beef tenderloin, trimmed
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard

2 Spray bottom of roasting pan with cooking spray. Place beef in pan; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread mustard evenly over beef; pat parsley mixture over mustard. Insert ovenproof meat thermometer so tip is in center of thickest part of beef.
3 Bake uncovered 35 to 45 minutes or until thermometer reads at least 140F (for medium-rare doneness).
4 Place beef on cutting board. Cover loosely with foil; let stand 15 minutes or until thermometer reads 145F. (Temperature will continue to rise about 5F, and beef will be easier to carve.) Cut beef into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Enjoy !

Cranberry Nut Bread

To make a tart and tasty dessert treat, mix together 2 cups of whole wheat flour, 1 tablespoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of sea salt. Cut 1/4 cup of butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture has the texture of cornmeal.

In the smaller bowl, blend 3/4 cup of orange juice with a well-beaten egg and 1/2 cup of honey. Then pour the liquids all at once into the dry ingredients, and stir the resulting mix only enough to blend everything well before folding in 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts and 1 cup of fresh, chopped cranberries.

Finally, pour the batter into a well-oiled loaf pan, push it up slightly around the sides, and bake it for an hour at 350F. The youngsters may be dubious about the "new" dessert at first ... but after one slice, they'll attack the bread with such enthusiasm that you'll probably have to make another loaf before the holidays are over!
