Welcome to the 12th installment of the FR Weekly Cooking Thread.
Looking for something new to make or made something new that came out great?
Please share a 'tried-and-true' recipe or two for fellow FReepers to add to their 'go-to' recipe stack of Family favorites?
Here's the place to share and explore your next favorite recipe.
OOOOOOHHH - You have a devilish streak!:>)
Creme De Menthe Fudge!? (I can hear the pounds now!)
Oh No! I found a recipe!....Curses!
Hehe ... then there’s Kahlua in cream puff filling, as well as a little Kahlua stirred into some melted chocolate for the topping — makes a great adult dessert!
That sounds like it was Martin Yan from ‘Yan Can Cook - and so can you’ I loved his programs.
Here’s an Asparagus Soup Recipe I’ve made several times, I bet it would be a straight transfer to use broccoli....and utilize those stems.
Melt 2T butter in pan, incorporate 2T flour, stir until smooth - add 2 cups Milk 1/2t salt and 1/8 t pepper
Take around 3/4lb Asparagus, cut into 1/2” pieces and cook in a small amount of water (to cover) until tender - drain and reserve the cooking liquid
Set aside a few pieces for garnish (or save tips beforehand,etc)
Mash or Blender the Asparagus pieces.
(can put through a sieve for smoother soup)
Add 1 cup reserved juices to white sauce, add Asparagus and heat thoroughly.
(one of those wing-it recipes depending on how much soup you need to make - everything can adjust easily)
Let us know how that fudge turns out! lol
I have printed out the Cheese Cake Tart recipe, and will bring them to the next family get together.
I love your tag line! lol
I’d love for my tag line to be true. ;-)
I absolutely agree with this statement. As for the tabacco thing, I detest smoking, however if an adult wants to make that choice for themself, so be it, as long as they don't expect the government to pay for the repercussions for their choice. If everyone who claimed to take personal responsibility actually did, then we probably wouldn't be having this discussion.
I don't use most premade food products; those that I do, I've checked out to the best of my ability or I'm willing to live with what ever side effects they have.
I have been around the block enough times to know that the government's take on nutrition is lame at best. My third daughter suffers from PCOS and insulin resistance. I appreciate your passion about this; we just deal with it a bit differently.
And for the comment that companies are only interested in making money, I would agree. That's what motivates me in my business; however, to keep making money, I have to keep my customers happy. People pay for what they want; it's the savvy business who sees this and fills the void. Whether or not the business should pander to peoples' baser instincts is another discussion.
My whole point is that business’ should be required to be honest in their labeling. People can’t make informed choices without the facts. They can’t beware without the facts.
I agree as long as it's not the government doing the requiring. Any company that wants to keep your business would be looking at ways to do that. One way to keep your business is by honestly labeling their products. If they don't, you don't buy, they lose money. The free market works to the consumers advantage as long as the government stays out of it.
Shall we do away with the FDA and the USDA then?
Sounds like a good plan to me. I’m all for getting rid of almost all the alphabet agencies.
Freedom comes in many forms. To be able to purchase food for my family, knowing that safety regulations are in place IS freedom. Being at the mercy of corporations where they care only about profit margins and not the consumer, is NOT freedom, that would be corporate tyranny.
Sounds like a good plan to me. Im all for getting rid of almost all the alphabet agencies.
See this one tonight?
EPA Reverses Itself on Fluoride
Reducing the fluoride may be good if they think its ‘possible’ that it might be harming them. As for those eating the toothpaste, one has to wonder where the parent are. But, having said that, a friend of mine ate a whole tube and was fine so who knows.
I got to thinking. In recent years it isn’t uncommon for dentists to suggest purchasing rinses with fluoride. I wonder if they have checked to see if those having problems might be using a rinse with fluoride, giving them too much fluoride.
