How To Make Homemade Graham Crackers

To get the printable recipe: http://www.LauraintheKitchen.com Measurements: 2 cups of All Purpose Flour 1 cup of Whole Wheat Flour 1 tsp of Baking Soda 1/4 tsp of Salt 1/4 tsp of Cinnamon 1 cup of Unsalted Butter, softened at room temperature 1/2 cup of Brown Sugar 2 Tbsp of Granulated Sugar 2 Tbsp of Honey 2 tsp of Vanilla Extract 3 to 4 Tbsp of Milk or Water Process: 1) In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, add the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, honey and vanilla, mix for a couple minutes on medium speed until it looks fluffy and creamy. 2) Add all the dry ingredients and start mixing, slowly add a little water at a time until a dough forms and doesn’t feel too dry to the touch. 3) Form the dough into 2 disks, wrap in plastic wrap and pop it in the fridge for about half an hour to an hour or until it feels a little firmer. 4) Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, take two pieces of parchment paper cut to about 17 x 15 inches, place one of the disks on one piece of parchment, place another piece of parchment over the top and roll out the dough so it’s just about the same size as the parchment paper (watch video for clear instructions on this because it’s a little hard to explain). 5) Score the dough into squares, pierce each square with a fork then slide the whole thing onto a baking sheet and pop it in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the edges become a lovely deep golden-brown. Repeat with the other disk of dough. 6) As soon as they come out of the oven, re-score them so they break apart easily when cooled completely.

Dinner at Nonna’s

We captured this moment with the intention of sharing pieces of it throughout recipes here and there, but then realized that it's beautiful on it's own. This is what a typical evening with my nonna looks like, and oh how I wish it wasn't just once a year. When you're in the moment it feels like you've captured everything, but then when I watch it back I wish the camera never stopped. Nonna has appeared on Laura in the Kitchen several times, here are some of her recipes: Nonna's Fruit Tart Recipe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0r8zA-Ukq9A&t=3s Nonna's Stuffed Calamari Recipe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzO_CxtmxuQ Nonna's Stuffed Peppers Recipe: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1B7O4rZX5E Nonna's Spaghetti with Clams: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITAhZxMg5PM Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/mrsvitale Official Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/LauraintheKitchen Contact: Business@LauraintheKitchen.com Twitter: @Lauraskitchen

[EN] Steamed Lamb Head / رأس الخروف مبخر – CookingWithAlia – Episode 738

One of the unique dishes in Moroccan cuisine is "Steamed Lamb Head"... yep. It is! Now, you may like it or you may not, I have 2 thoughts regarding this: 1- This is a sustainable consumption of an animal. If we were to kill an animal for food, then consume the entire animal at least out of respect for this lost life. 2- Respect other cultures. You may not agree with others, and that's fin, but you have to respect the difference. RECIPE: https://www.cookingwithalia.com/738-lamb-head/ INGREDIENTS: 1 lamb head 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1/2 teaspoon cumin 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 tomato, sliced Water To serve: Chili pepper, to taste Cumin, to taste Salt, to taste DIRECTIONS: 1- In a small bowl, combine the vegetable oil, 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, 1/2 teaspoon of coriander powder, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix well. 2- Brush the head of the lamb with the oil spice mixture and set aside. 3- Fill the bottom part of a steamer or couscous pot with water and add a sliced tomato. The tomato will prevent your pot from getting a dark color. 4- Place the head in the top part of the steamer or the couscous cooker, tongue facing down. This will keep the skin in a good shape. 5- Cover with a layer of parchment paper then cover again with a layer of foil paper. Let steam for 1 hour and 30 minutes. 6- Serve with chili pepper, cumin, salt.
