Chocolate-Fudge Pudding Cake
When you have a craving for a comforting dessert, try this pudding cake, which forms its own rich-tasting sauce as it bakes. The coffee flavor is subtle, but it adds complex depth to the cake’s flavor……

The Best Vanilla Custard
Calling this “the best” custard recipe may seem like a bold statement, but it’s true. In this healthy dessert recipe, the rich eggy custard is silky-smooth and infused with loads of vanilla, making it worthy of its name……

Sweet Potato Pudding Cake
This cake was inspired by the one of the most popular Jamaican desserts, sweet potato pudding. Traditionally, raw shredded sweet potatoes are used, but we found that sweet potatoes sold in the U.S. don’t provide the same texture as those in Jamaica. Instead, we mix mashed sweet potato with eggs and flour to get a slightly different, but equally delicious, cheesecake-like result……

I came across a Bison Recipe that I’m passing along for everyone, Bison Steak Frites. There’s also a recipe for a Frisse Salad. To make the Bison Steak Frites you’ll be needing 1 Large Sweet Potato, Ground Ginger, Ground Corriander, Ground Cinnamon, Ground Cumin, Ground Black Pepper, Salt, Cloves, Ground Cardamom, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and Bison Ribeye Steaks. Love that Bison! The recipe is from the CooksRecipes website. At the Cooks site you’ll find a huge selection of recipes to please all Tastes, Diets, or Cuisines so be sure to check it out today for any of your recipe needs! Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2020!

Bison Steak Frites
Here’s a healthy twist on a bistro classic—Steak Frites. Bison steak is substituted for the beef steak, and the fries for baked sweet potatoes, served with a frisse salad garnished with blueberries.

Recipe Ingredients:
1 large sweet potato, sliced into 1/4 inch sticks
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground corriander
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
A pinch of cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil.
2 Bison ribeye steaks

Frisse Salad:
2 tablepsoons cider vinegar
2 tablepsoons apple cider
1 1/2 tablepsoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
1/4 cup safflower oil

Cooking Directions:
1 – In a large bowl combine the sweet potato, ginger, corriander, cinnamon, cumin, black pepper, salt, cloves, cardamom, and extra virgin olive oil. Then toss to evenly coat the fries.
2 – Spread them out evenly on a baking sheet and place in a preheated 425°F (220°C) oven. They should take about 30 to 35 minutes to cook.
3 – Brush the ribeye steaks with extra virgin olive oil so they don’t stick to the grill and season with cracked black pepper and salt–make sure you get both sides.
4 – Place the steaks on a preheated grill pan and cook for a total of 7 to 8 minutes, flipping once.
5 – While the steaks rest, assemble the frisse and watercress salad. Add the washed greens to a large bowl and combine with the cider vinegar, apple cider, brown sugar, celery seed, granulated garlic and safflower oil. Toss then season with salt and pepper.
6 – Plate the salad and garnish with fresh blueberries.
7 – When the potatoes are done, slice the steak. Remember when slicing the steak to cut against the grain–this ensures that the meat will stay tender and juicy.
8 – Add the sliced steak on top of the sweet potato and plate the salad.
Makes 2 servings.
