Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

The recipe Orange Truffles could satisfy your Southern craving in about 45 minutes. For $1.31 per serving, this recipe covers 5% of your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. One serving contains 392 calories, 3g of protein, and 29g of fat. Head to the store and pick up margarine, milk chocolate chips, whipping cream, and a few other things to make it today. This recipe from Foodista has 1 fans. Not a lot of people really liked this side dish. It is a good option if you're following a gluten free diet. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 14%. This score is rather bad. Similar recipes include Orange Truffles, Orange chocolate truffles, and Chocolate Orange Truffles.

Riesling, Sparkling Wine, and Zinfandel are my top picks for Southern. In general, there are a few rules that will help you pair wine with southern food. Food-friendly riesling or sparkling white wine will work with many fried foods, while zinfandel is great with barbecued fare. You could try Von Winning Winnings Riesling. Reviewers quite like it with a 4 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 20 dollars per bottle.

Von Winning Winnings Riesling

If you loved the 2014 — and if you didn't, we need to send out a search party for your heart — you’ll find this one happy, happy, happy. Stronger than '14, it's also both drier and richer. And that’s as it should be; the pittance of sweetness it contains will rise and fall with the structure of each year's wine, because that's what sensible vintners do. The others just set up a formula and the wine"“has—XY— grams of sugar and zat's zat." Not Winnings Riesling. This will always be teasingly dry and teasingly sweet so you’ll keep changing your mind ("Wait, it's a dry wine, no, it's a sweet wine, no wait, it's a dry wine again….") while the bottle empties faster than you could have imagined.

Instructions

  1. Heat semisweet chocolate in heavy 2-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until melted; remove from heat. Stir in margarine. Stir in whipping cream and orange-flavored liqueur.
  2. Refrigerate 10 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently, just until thick enough to hold a shape. Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto aluminum foil-covered cookie sheet. Shape into balls. (If mixture is too sticky, refrigerate until firm enough to shape.) Freeze 30 minutes.
  3. Heat shortening and chocolate chips over very low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth; remove from heat. Dip truffles, one at a time, into chocolate. Place on aluminum foil-covered cookie sheet. Immediately sprinkle some of the truffles with finely chopped nuts if desired.
  4. Refrigerate truffles about 10 minutes or until coating is set. Drizzle some of the truffles with a mixture of 1/4 cup powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon milk if desired. Refrigerate just until set. Serve at room temperature. Store truffles in airtight container. 15 CANDIES; 165

Tips

Health Tips

  • Make sure your margarine does not contain trans fats! Check the ingredient list for "partially hydrogenated" vegetable oils?these are trans fats. It actually might be better to forgo margarine entirely and stick with butter or olive oil.

  • If you're following a vegan diet (or avoiding dairy), make sure the brand of chocolate chips you buy is suitable for your diet! Always read the labels carefully. If you cannot find chocolate chips free from milk or other dairy in stores near you, look online.

  • If you really want to benefit from chocolate's health benefits, use cacao nibs instead of chocolate chips. They are much less processed than chocolate chips and have no added sugar!
