This recipe is easy requires 25 minutes preparation time, approximately 45 minutes cooking time, and serves 6. Creamy and cheesy with a crispy Parmesan topping.

Ingredients:

  • 5 ounces goat cheese
  • 1/4 cup goat milk
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 1/2 pounds small Yukon gold potatoes, scrubbed with peels on*
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

 

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a 1 1/2 to 2-quart casserole dish with baking spray. Set aside.
  • With a sharp chef’s knife, slice the potatoes into very thin slices, 1/8-inch-thick or less. Place the potatoes in a   large bowl, drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with the minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Toss to coat the slices    as evenly as you can.
  • Spread 1/3 of the potato slices in the bottom of the prepared dish. Crumble half of the goat cheese over the  top. Repeat with the next 1/3 of the potatoes, then the remaining goat cheese, then finish by layering on the final third of the potatoes. The potatoes may discard some liquid as they rest in the bowl. If this happens,  simply leave the liquid in the bottom bowl and shake the potato slices gently in your hands to remove excess  liquid before layering them in the dish.
  • Pour the milk evenly over the top of the dish, then sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Cover the dish with foil, bake for 30 minutes, then uncover and bake for 15 additional minutes, until the top has browned. Scatter the rosemary over the top. Serve hot.

Milk & Cream

Twice baked souffles were fashionable a while back and recently, a revival as ‘retro food’.

A twice-baked recipe for souffles is ideal as you can make it in advance and then re-bake just before serving, making serving the souffles much easier if you are serving your guest.

Ingredients:

  • 8 fl oz goat milk
  • 3½ oz semi-hard goat cheese, grated
  • 2 eggs, separated
  • ½ onion
  • 12 black peppercorns
  • 1oz butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 1oz plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme leaves
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • watercress to serve

Directions:

    • Preheat the oven to 365 ° F.
    • Place the milk, onion and peppercorns into a pan over a medium heat and bring to scalding point but, do not boil. Strain the milk into a bowl and discard the onion and peppercorns.
    • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a clean pan over a medium heat. Add the flour and stir well for one minute to create a paste.
    • Gradually add the heated milk, a little at a time, waiting for the flour to bubble before adding more milk and stirring between additions. Keep adding to create a smooth sauce.
    • Remove the pan from the heat, then add the egg yolks and thyme and whisk to combine.
    • Add 2½ oz of the goat cheese, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and stir well.
    • Whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form when the whisk is removed.
    • Add a small spoonful of the egg whites to the cheese sauce and mix well.
    • Gradually add generous spoonfuls of the egg whites to the cheese sauce, gently folding the whites into the sauce, until the whites are completely combined with the sauce.
    • Butter and flour for 5 oz. ramekins and divide the cheese mixture among them.
    • If cooking to serve immediately, sprinkle the souffles with the remaining goat cheese; if planning to store and reheat, reserve the cheese for later.
    • Transfer the souffles to an ovenproof dish and add enough water to the dish to come a third of the way up the ramekins.
    • Carefully place into the oven to bake for 15-18 minutes, or until risen.
    • The souffles can be cooled and stored in the fridge, or even frozen, to be cooked later. If reheating, defrost or remove from the fridge, top with the remaining cheese and place into an oven preheated to 365 ° F and bake for 8-10 minutes.
    • To serve, place the souffles onto plates and place a handful of watercress alongside.

“HOW Goat Milk Skin Care Products Benefits the Elderly?”

Milk & Cream

Elderly skin care is a very important health concern for aging adults. While our skin is generally ignored throughout life unless we have a cut, a rash, an itch, or a burn, etc., Skin is our largest and important organ – adults carry some 8 pounds (3.6 kilograms) and 22 square feet (2 square meters) of it,  and the  skin plays a much bigger role than just holding everything together in one package.

Healthy skin keeps infectious agents from entering the body, synthesizes essential vitamin D from sunlight, manufactures vitamin D for converting calcium into healthy bones and provides our sensation of touch through the various nerves running throughout.

The hallmark of goat milk is its gentleness and nutritive properties in digestion, but those same properties carry over to the skin care products, as well.

Goat milk skin care products are especially suited for caring for the special challenges that aging skin presents.

For cleansing, goat milk soap has the benefits of a lower pH, making it more friendly to the skin’s protective acid mantle, and a high fat content that supplies moisture, while gently removing dirt and dead skin cells.

Goat milk soaps also come in a vast array of combinations that include nourishing herbs and other natural ingredients tailored for specific skincare needs. Read the labels or inquire as to the suitability of particular ingredients for elderly skin care, or for other special skin care needs.

Creams, lotion and body butters made from goat milk are also especially nourishing for elderly skin. The special fat and protein molecules from goat milk, along with an array of vitamins and minerals, are easily absorbed through the skin, providing hydration, a protective moisture barrier, and nourishment for the skin all at the same time.

Isolated rough patches of skin might also benefit from the application of a homemade facial solution containing goat milk yogurt, sour cream or buttermilk. These fermented products contain lactic acid, one of the alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), known for helping to remove dead surface layer skin cells to leave skin smoother.

These goat milk versions of alpha hydroxy acid contain no additional chemicals or preservatives and are not as harsh as commercial products.

Conclusion, it is also vital to nourish skin from the inside out. Proper nutrition is an imperative component in elderly skin care.

As the saying goes, “The proof is in the pudding.”That pudding was made with goat milk, right? Ha Ha Ha!

If you or an elderly loved one suffers from dry, itchy skin, try a cleansing and hydration program based on goat milk. Products are widely available, and come in a range of scents or unscented and added ingredients.

Experiment with different brands and varieties to find one that works best for your special needs.

Of course, homemade products are almost guaranteed to be less irritating and more moisturizing than commercial products, not to mention less expensive!

” HOW TO Make Savory Goat Cheese Souffle? “

Grocery & Gourmet Food

Dairy, Cheese & Eggs

Artisan Cheese

Cottage Cheese

Cream Cheese

Milk & Cream

The savory goat cheese souffle recipe is easy and delicious. The word souffle means “to blow up” or more loosely “puff up”, souffles are an elegant milk and egg based dish that uses beaten egg whites to impart a light, airy texture to a custard base.

Souffles are served hot from the oven, because they lose their puffiness as they start to cool, and will generally fall after 5 or 10 minutes. Sweetened souffles are served as dessert, and savory souffles are served as savory light main dish, or as an accompaniment.

To make a successfully souffle, ensure to beat the egg whites until they form stiff peaks, then carefully fold the custard mix into them.

* Note: The more you stir, the more you are bursting the air bubbles that will give the souffle its lift.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, plus extra for baking dish
  • 3/4 cup goat milk
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. sage
  • 1/4 tsp. rosemary
  • 1/4 cup flour, plus extra for baking dish
  • 6 oz. Chevre goat cheese
  • 3/4 tsp. salt (adjust up or down, depending on the saltiness of the goat cheese)
  • 1/4 tsp. thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. marjoram
  • 1/2 tsp. parsley

Directions

Separate the eggs, placing the egg whites into a medium-large stainless steel or glass mixing bowl. Prepare the baking dish(es) – either 6 individual ramekins, or a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish, by coating with butter and dusting with flour.

Preheat oven to 375° F.

Melt the butter in a saucepan, then whisk in the flour, mixing well. Add the goat cheese, milk, salt, pepper and other spices. Continue whisking for several minutes over medium heat until thickened. Remove from heat, and add the egg yolks, stirring well.

Beat the egg whites for several minutes with an electric mixer until peaks stand without falling over. Using a spatula, fold the custard into the egg whites gently, so as not to destroy the lightness of the mixture.

Pour into the baking dish(es), and sprinkle parsley on top. Bake until the top is lightly browned, about 10-15 minutes for ramekins, and 15-20 minutes for a casserole dish. Serve hot.

This savory goat cheese souffle goes well with chicken, turkey and fish main dishes, or as an entree itself with salad or soup.

With just a little attention to these details, you can successfully make your savory souffle for the first time!
