Cabbage can actually taste good! Here is a fast an easy recipe that is sweet and tangy! Hard apple cider is delicious drink by itself, or even better when you drop a shot of whiskey in it! This dish is delicious served both hot and cold, and as a relish for corned beef sandwiches.

1/2 cup hard apple cider
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Heat large saucepan over medium-high heat, with 2 tablespoons oil or butter. Add onion, and sauté until soft, about 3-5 minutes. Add cabbage, and sauté about 5 minutes longer. Reduce temperature to low, add apple cider and vinegar, stir and cover. Cook for 6-10 minutes or until soft; uncovering the last few minutes so liquids can evaporate. Enjoy!

Mariko Laugh

The melt-in-your-mouth goodness of toffee, in just a few steps! Try experimenting with different types of nuts and flavors (add chili, coconut and salt to your almonds for a spicy kick) and the possibilities are endless! Toffee tastes better the next day after the flavors develop - just store in an air tight container until ready to serve!

1 1/2 cups toasted almond (or other nut) chopped
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
4 bars chocolate

Butter pan (like 7×11 or 8×8) and sprinkle 1 cup of almonds evenly over bottom. Melt butter in heavy bottom saucepan, add brown sugar and cook over medium-high heat until gently boiling. Reduce heat to medium, and cook for 12 minutes, stirring constantly (if you have a candy thermometer, this will be about 300 degrees). Carefully pour onto baking sheet over almonds, and smooth with back of spoon. Arrange chocolate bars over top and let sit for a few minutes until melted. Evenly spread chocolate, and sprinkle with remaining almonds. Cool completely, and break into smaller pieces when ready to serve!

Make Your Own Butterfingers! Recipe Of The Day In Four Ingredients!

Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Mariko Pot

Butterfingers used to be my favorite candy …. until I started reading the labels on everything! Here is a delicious recipe for getting that peanut butter and chocolate fix in a matter of minutes! This recipe can also be gluten-free and vegan if you use the right chocolate and candy corn.

1 cup candy corn
1/3 cup peanut butter
3/4 chocolate chips

Line a small baking dish (around 5×5) with parchment paper. Add candy corn to microwave safe bowl, and heat for 30 seconds, or until melted (be careful not to overcook it). Immediately add peanut butter and stir until well mixed; if it begins to harden, microwave for 10 seconds. Pour mixture into baking dish, and smooth out with spoon. Sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over top, and microwave for 5-10 seconds. Spread melted chocolate chips evenly over top of peanut mixture, and put in freezer to chill - about 15 minutes. I like to cut mine in small, fun-size rectangles, and wrap in cute cellophane to serve!

Chocolate And Coconut Cream Bars! Recipe Of The Day In Four Ingredients!

Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Mariko Sink

Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you don't! Here is a recipe for making the classic chocolate coconut candy at home, anyway you like it! Get creative by adding different nuts or flavors (like orange or almond extract) or a sprinkle of pink salt!

3 cups shredded coconut (put aside 3 tablespoons for garnish)
1 14-oz can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups powdered sugar
3 cups chocolate chips

Combine coconut, sweetened condensed milk and powdered sugar in large bowl, and mix until combined. Pour into greased 9×13 baking pan, and freeze until firm enough to cut - about an hour. Cut into small squares. Melt chocolate chips in oven proof bowl (I'll either microwave for a few minutes, stirring every 15 seconds until smooth, or by placing the bowl over a small pot of hot water). Dip the coconut bars in chocolate, place on wax paper to cool, and sprinkle with a dash of remaining coconut, or even chopped nuts. For that picture perfect touch, purchase mini muffin wrappers at the grocery story - they are the perfect size for candies.

FitPerez Present: Recipes Of The Day In 4 Ingredients!

Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Mariko 4 Recipes

Butternut squash is an essential vegetable for a Fit lifestyle: rich in B-complex and A vitamins, Fiber and essential Minerals - it is also low calorie and very filling. Most butternut soup recipes use heavy cream, so this is a light and satisfying recipe without the guilt. It is also perfect for vegan and gluten-free diets: try experimenting with different seasoning such as sage or cinnamon for a different twist.

Butternut Squash Soup

1 butternut squash
2-3 cups vegetable broth
2 shallots or 1/2 onion, sliced
1-3 teaspoons spice (I love curry powder in this recipe)

Cut butternut squash in half, and remove seeds. Place on baking sheet with shallots / onion on top of squash. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until soft. Scrape softened squash and shallots from rind with spoon, and put in blender. Process until smooth (if it has a hard time blending, add a little broth) then add to saucepan with remaining broth and seasoning. Stir over medium heat until hot, season with salt and pepper (to taste) and enjoy!
