Ranchified Avocado Dip

I am excited to announce that I was selected, as one of Canada's top online influencers to participate in the Hidden Valley Ranch Ranchify Recipe Challenge. We usually like having the Original and Spicy Ranch dressing with our vegetables and salads. I was thinking how I could ranchify the Original Ranch Hidden Valley dressing in a different way by incorporating seasonal ingredients, and experimented it to make this delicious, flavourful dip that my family and I enjoyed. 
To make this dip, I used
1/2 ripe avocado
3 to 4 tbsp ranch dressing
1/4 tsp salt to taste
1/4 tsp pepper to taste
paprika and celery leaves to garnish

I pureed about 3-4 tbsp of ranch dressing with 1/2 ripe avocado, salt and pepper. I piped the dip mixture into individual plates and sprinkled paprika and garnished with celery leaves. This dip tastes fabulous with baked breaded fish, steamed vegetable and bread. 
I think it is easy to incorporate the Ranch dressing into our recipes because they are flavourful and don't have an overwhelming sharp taste. Anyone who likes Ranch dressings will definitely enjoy it with vegetables and fruits such as avocado, tomatoes and more.

Apple Pudding

apple pudding
Cake
2 tart apples
2 tsp lemon juice
4 tsp sugar for the first part
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar for the second part
1 egg beaten
1/2 cup milk

Topping
1 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp cinnamon

Mix the topping ingredients and leave it ready to sprinkle over the top of the batter before baking.

Grease and flour the pan and leave it aside.  Peel and slice the apples and sprinkle it with lemon juice.  Arrange the apple slices over the bottom of the cake pan.  Sprinkle 4 tsp sugar over the apples.

In a bowl cream the butter and sugar.  Then add the beaten egg to the mixture.  Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and add this to the butter mixture, while adding the flour alternate it with the milk.  
Spoon the batter over the apples and gently smooth the top. Sprinkle the topping ingredients and bake for 35 to 40 minutes in a preheated 350F oven.
Update: I used a 8" springform or removable pan, you can use a square pan as well.
My daughter made this apple pudding at summer camp last year. This warm delicious pioneer pudding recipe is wonderful to serve on its own or with vanilla ice cream.

Almond Biscotti

almond biscotti
1 cup whole almonds skinned
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup vanilla flavoured sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs 
4 tbsp unsalted butter melted

Melt the butter in a small pan over low heat until it melts and leave it aside to cool.  

Remove the skin of the almonds by soaking it in warm water for a few minutes and it will come out easily.  Spread the almonds on a baking sheet and bake in a 350F for 5 to 10 minutes until slightly coloured, toss halfway.  Allow the almonds to cool and then chop it coarsely.

Sift the flour with baking powder and salt into a big bowl.  Stir the sugar and chopped almonds into the flour.  In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and melted butter then add it to the flour mixture.  

Use your hands and bring the ingredients together to form a dough. Turn the dough onto a floured work surface and make 2 log shapes each about 8" long.  Place the logs on a baking sheet and bake in the middle rack of a preheated 350F oven for 20 minutes.  

Remove the logs from the oven and cool slightly then transfer it to a cutting board.  Use a serrated knife and then cut the logs diagonally into 1 1/2" to 2" thick slices.  Put the biscotti on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, then flip and bake for another 5 minutes.  

Cool the biscotti on a wire rack to let it harden.  To store keep the biscotti in an airtight container for over a week.

The biscotti can also be frozen, by placing the biscotti on a baking sheet and freeze until it is solid then transfer it to a freezer bag.    

This recipe is from the DK illustrated step-by-step baking book.  I really like this book because of its detailed explanations and photographs. This book gives 80 classic recipes and has about 240 variations for these classics.  We can use the details and step-by-step photographs from the classic recipes to build on different variations.  The book covers a huge range of sweets and savouries such as tarts quiches, pies, breads, cakes, cookies, meringues, souffl├ęs and a variety of party desserts for special occasions.
