Conjured Mana Brownie – World of Warcraft

Posted on Updated on

This is a recipe where I wish I had a scratch and sniff blog. My kitchen smelled so wonderful with the brownie and the caramel aromas intermingling. 
Mouthwatering.
I used a brownie mix for this recipe but if you are anti-mix  or just want to make them from scratch. here is a great brownie recipe I use all the time.
To make the Salted Caramel Sauce, you will need:
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
6 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon fine sea salt 

 If you are like me and never have heavy cream, here is how to make it.
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
Combine slowly, whisk.
If the butter clumps in the milk. Don’t fret, just microwave it for 5 or 10 seconds.
It will melt again and combine properly.

 Ta-da! Heavy cream!

 Now back to the caramel glaze.
Add the sugar to a pan.
Add the water.

 Bring to a boil. It will look like the above photo. It is OK if it bubbles.

 You will stare at the bubbling sugar for about 10 minutes. Stir frequently.
When it browns into a light amber color, remove from heat.

 Add butter and stir.
Slowly add heavy cream. It will foam up, don’t be alarmed.
Add salt.
Put aside to let it sit and cool.

 Remove the brownie from the pan and slice in to servings.

Spoon sauce over brownie. Serve.
Yum!

In real life, this would be called Butterscotch Pudding.
You will need:
2 Tablespoons Butter
1 Cup Brown Sugar
12 Ounces Evaporated Milk
2/3 Cup Flour
1/8 teaspoon Salt
3 Egg Yolks
2 Cups Milk
2 Teaspoons Vanilla
Melt butter in sauce pan and add brown sugar. Cook for 2 minutes. 
It will resemble wet sand.
Add 1/4 cup of the evaporated milk; slowly.
Bring to a boil constantly stirring for 30 seconds.
Remove from heat.

Combine remaining evaporated milk, flour, salt and egg yolks in a medium bowl.

Heat milk (non evaporated) in a small sauce pan over medium head until tiny bubbles form around the edges.
Watch the temperature, milk burns easily.

Combine the flour mixture into the brown sugar mixture and stir.
Slowly, add the hot milk to the brown sugar and flour mixture, whisk.
Return to medium heat for 12 minutes – until it thickens to pudding consistency.
Tip: Keep the heat steady, it will be liquid until minute 10 that BAM! thick.
Remove from heat, add vanilla.

Pour into dishes or a pie and let sit to cool for 30 minutes.
Yum!

Root Veggie Stew ~ World of Warcraft

Posted on Updated on

3 large potatoes (cubed or use smaller potatoes)
3 large carrots (sliced)
2 onions (sliced)
2 green peppers (sliced)
French onion soup mix
4 cups water
2 chicken breasts (shredded)

I sliced the carrots, potatoes, onions and green peppers. Tossed them with olive oil or butter and spread out on a cookie sheet and roast them in the oven for 45 minutes.
Don’t skip this step, it takes awhile but oh so delicious!

I baked the chicken in the oven until thoroughly cooked. Let cool. Shred.

Add 4 cups of water with the packet of onion soup mix.
Add chicken, veggies and bring to a boil.
Reduce to simmer for 30 minutes.

I know, adding chicken to beef broth base.
We’re crazy here at The Gamer’s Fridge kitchen.

Yum!

I will roast veggies before I make any soup or stew. This was the most amazing stew.
