(NAPSA) – Even the most time-pressed home chefs can find ways to add a personal touch to the foods they cook and bake.
The key is to look for time-saving, convenient ingredients that quickly add quality, taste and flair to the dishes you make. Add-ins and toppings are recipe enhancers, and the right ones can be combined with batter, cookie dough, pastries, breads, muffins, pies, salads, pastas, stir-fries, vegetable side dishes and more.
The ingredients create a finished product that looks and tastes like it was made from scratch, but it’s much easier.
For instance, a new line of flavorful recipe enhancers called Fisher Culinary Touch Cooking and Baking Add-Ins and Toppings is limited only by the imagination of the cook. Here’s how you can use them:
- Pecan, Cranberry, Orange Blend – Crunchy, toasted pecans are blended with sweet cranberries and orange zest. They’re great for adding a light flavor to baked goods, from cookies to breads.
- Frosted Walnuts – Fresh walnuts are deliciously frosted with a spicy-sweet coating, which makes them ideal for salads, pies and coffee cakes.
- Toasted Pine Nuts – Slowly toasted to perfection, pine nuts add a hearty flavor and crunch to pastas, salads, an array of authentic ethnic dishes and treats.
- Walnut, Apple, Blueberry Blend – Fresh walnuts blended with sweet blueberries and apples create an ideal flavor combination for cakes, muffins, and strudels.
- Toasted Cashews – Slow roasted and rich in flavor, cashews add a golden crunch and roasted flavor to stir-fries, salads and vegetable medleys.
