Yes, substitute ground for fresh at a 1:6 ratio. The two tastes are a bit different though, but I do this and it always comes out tasting good.

General Tso's Tofu


Here is an amazing tofu recipe that i found online and unfortunately can\'t find the website where i copied it from. But it makes this (in my opinion) unflavored food taste like heaven.



Ingredients:


For the Tofu:
1 package of tofu
1 tbs arrowroot
3 tbs gluten-free, low-sodium tamari
1 tbs fresh ginger, grated or 1 tsp. ground
1-2 tbs canola or peanut oil


For the Sauce:
1 tbs sesame oil
1/4 cup gluten-free, low-sodium tamari
1 tbs arrowroot
1 tbs fresh ginger, grated or 1 tsp. ground
3 tbs honey
2 tbs hot sauce (optional)
1 tbs canola oil or peanut oil
4-5 scallions, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
Sesame seeds, for garnish


Instructions:
Cut the tofu into cubes. In a shallow bowl, combine the arrowroot, tamari and ginger. Whisk until smooth. Add the tofu and toss to coat.
Let the tofu marinate for at least half an hour, the longer the better.
When the tofu has marinated, heat 1 tbs of canola or peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the tofu to the skillet and cook until golden brown on all sides, about 4 minutes per side. Remove the tofu from the skillet and set aside.
Wipe out the skillet because you’re going to use it again.
In a large measuring cup or bowl, combine the sesame oil, tamari, arrowroot, ginger, honey and hot sauce, if using. Whisk until smooth. Set aside.
Heat the canola oil or peanut oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add the scallions and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes.
Add the sauce to the skillet and let it cook until it thickens a bit. If it gets too thick, add some water.
Add the tofu to the skillet and toss to coat in the sauce and reheat the tofu.
Sprinkle some sesame seeds over the dish when ready to serve.
Bon Apetit!

Homemade pumpkin pie spice mix


Have you ever wanted to make a recipe that calls for "pumpkin pie spice" but don't have it in your pantry? It turns out, pumpkin pie spice in made from things that most people already have so there's no need to go out and spend the money on another spice that's just going to sit on the shelf. Instead, you can make your own with stuff you probably already have lying around your spice rack.

Here is all you need to make your own pumpkin pie spice:
  • 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 3 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 3 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

Take these ingredients and put them in a small mason jar or some tupperware and shake them up good.

You don't need to use exact measurements and can alter to your own taste. My kids hate the taste of ginger so I usually cut it by about half.

On a side note, pumpkin pie spice tastes great sprinkled on your morning coffee or over your late night scoop of vanilla ice cream!

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 quart peanut oil for frying
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 8 (7 inch square) egg roll wrappers
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds (optional)
Adjust Servings recipe yields 8 servings Directions

  2. In another large skillet heat oil to about 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) or medium high heat. While oil is heating, combine flour and water in a bowl until they form a paste. In a separate bowl combine the cabbage, carrots and reserved pork mixture. Mix all together.

Fold left and right corners toward the center and continue to roll. Brush a bit of the flour paste on the final corner to help seal the egg roll.
    1. Place egg rolls into heated oil and fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels or rack. Put on serving plate and top with sesame seeds if desired.

I love ginger and I think it would go really well with drinking chocolate. Anyone know any recipes they can suggest?


Thorntons make really great chocolates and they sell a ginger hot chocolate that looks amazing.

If you want to make your own you can try blending some fresh ginger, orange zest and vanilla extract. Then add cocoa powder and mix with milk in the same way you would normally prepare hot chocolate. Add sugar to taste.

Every time I make a loaf of bread it overflows the pan and pushes the lid up. I have followed the recipe in the book that came with the machine. What am i doing wrong?


You're using a fast-acting type of yeast instead of the standard active dry yeast. It's a very common mistake made even more common by the erroneous bread machine recipe writers.

Here are the rules concerning bread machines and the yeasts they love the most:

Use standard active dry yeast for all your standard-rise bread recipes.

For the fast-bake white bread recipes use only fast-acting dry yeast.

Fast-bake type mode selections are available on most newer models and the custom recipes provided in their instruction manuals are the only ones you should use. You should never experiment with recipe ingredients and their portions when using the fast-bake mode on any breadmaker.

P.S. Always refrigerate your yeast with a close eye on the expiration date.

When using grocery-bought bread mixes always substitute the yeast packet provided with fresh active dry yeast. Tip: A packet (or "sachet") of standard active dry yeast contains 2-1/4 teaspoons.

Hope this helps.

I brought myself a bread machine. I made the "cracked wheat sandwich bread" recipe that was in booklet that came with the bread machine. Well the bread rise up onto the cover. What a mess. It was...


You may have to continue to go through some trial and error. There are many variables like the quantity and freshen of yeast.

Here is a website with many recipes, including a couple for Cracked Wheat Bread; you might compare them to the recipe you have:
