I love red velvet cookies! They are so nice and gooey and tasty. I got the recipe off line, but I modified it a bit to make it my own.

Makes 18-20 large cookies...and probably a lot of mini cookies!

2 cups, minus 2 tblsp cake flour
1 2/2 cup bread flour
2 large room temp. eggs
2 teaspoons red food colouring
2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1 cup + 2tblsp caster or granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups brown sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt (or use 1 teaspoon fleur de sel)
3/4--1 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
chocolate chip spears, bittersweet, Godiva or Nestle Toll House
2 teaspoonsVanilla extract
*Optional, a dash or two of buttermilk*

Sift the cake flour, bread flour, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa and salt
cream together the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar.
add the vanilla extract and then the eggs (one at a time). When that is combined, add the food colouring.
Next, slowly add in the dry ingredients, until the batter is combined (until just moist/wet). (if using the buttermilk, add this before the dry ingredients).
Fold in, don't mix in, your chocolate spears to distribute the chocolate evenly.
Put the dough in the fridge for 24 hours to set. To do this, use cling wrap and press it to the dough in the bowl and put in the fridge.
When ready to use, make sure the dough is at room temperature!!!!! If not, the cookies can dry out quickly for they will have a longer baking time in the oven!
Oven should be set at 177C or 350F
It will take 19 minutes for bigger cookies, and about 12 minutes for smaller cookies!


(I don't know if most people like to use scales whilst measuring ingredients like my family and I do, so I used this measuring system. I believe that it's a bit easier to read universally...let me know if it isn't though...I can convert it easily, Cheers!)

1/2 cup celery, chopped fine

1/4 cup green bell pepper, chopped fine

1/4 cup red bell pepper, chopped fine

Salt and Tabasco, to taste

1 tbs. or more, Cajun seasoning

2 tbs's Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup fresh parsley

1 bunch green onions, chopped, including tops

1 cup warm water

3 cups cooked rice


First, make a light roux.

2 tbls.'s flour

2 tbls.'s vegetable oil


Brown the flour in the oil and stir constantly until it is medium brown, about 10 minutes

Lower heat and add the vegetables and garlic and stir for 5 minutes, adding a little bit of water, if needed, to prevent sticking. Add the beef, pork, and giblets and cook until browned. Add the Worcestershire sauce and warm water, stir and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir in the green onions and parsley and cook for 10 more minutes. Cut heat off and add the cooked rice and gently stir until well blended. Delicious!
