This Weekend in Hedonism (Segment 2)

  • Cheryl's Recipe Corner!
  • Magic Dough!
  • Description
    • This is a 2 ingredient dough (made famous by Weight Watchers YEARS ago) that is super versatile!  Use it for your pizza crust, to make bagels, to make Naan, soft pretzels, cinnamon rolls, pop-tarts, biscuits, etc.  It goes together super quick, and it has endless possibilities.  We recently used it as the base for a BBQ chicken pizza... I got 2 thumbs up from Russ, as he was too busy eating to actually say anything!  Check out the show notes for the link to several recipes using it!
  • Ingredients
    • 1 3/4 cups self-rising flour
    • 1 cup Greek
  • Directions
    • Sift your self-rising flour if it is clumpy! In a large mixing bowl, combine your flour with yogurt and mix well. Using your hands, press into the dough and form a ball shape.

  • Raspberry Mojito
  • Description
    • I'm a fan of Mojitos, and this one sounds perfect for summer days!
  • Ingredients
    • 8-10 raspberries
    • 1 lime, chopped into large chunks
    • 2 tsp granulated sugar
    • 2 mint sprigs, leaves picked
    • Ice
    • 4oz white rum
    • Sparkling water, to serve
  • Directions (Cocktail)
    • Divide the raspberries, lime and sugar between two tall glasses and muddle by gently crushing with a muddler or the end of a bar spoon. The fruits should start to release their juices, which will mix with the sugar. Put half the mint leaves in the palm of one of your hands, then clap the other hand on top of the leaves – this bruises them just enough to release their flavour. Drop the bruised mint leaves into one of the glasses, then repeat with the remaining mint, dropping it into the second glass. Add a handful of ice to each glass, followed by the rum. Stir, then top up with sparkling water. Stir briefly until just combined, then serve.
  • Russ's Drink Corner
  • Heaven's Door Straight Bourbon
  • Description
    • Heaven’s Door Straight Bourbon Whiskey is distilled and aged in Tennessee, for a minimum 6 years in new American oak barrels. The sour mash distillation process and non-chill filtered bottling allows this mature whiskey to remain consistent, as well as creating reliable flavor profiles that come from being aged in single story warehouses. The Heaven's Door Bourbon is distilled and aged from a partner distillery in Tennessee. This Whiskey is a true Bourbon, not a Tennessee Whisky, which means this product did not undergo charcoal mellowing, also known as the Lincoln County Process.

    • Peerless Straight Rye Whiskey is well-balanced, bolstered by sweet tones of maple, brown sugar, and light citrus sweetness. Finish with a hint of oak & no burn on the throat.
