Welcome to the 31st installment of the FR Weekly Cooking (Recipes) Thread.
Looking for something new to make or made something new that came out great? Please share a 'tried-and-true' recipe or five - or all of them:)! 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.
Didn’t think a recipe was needed———
Just bake two pizzas......sandwich together with a cooked burger the circumference of the pizza. Cut in wedges.
Make individual ones using the smallish Celeste pizzas as the “burger buns.”
Glad you explained that. I did not realize that was how it was made from the pic. I had to go back up and take another look! lol
I hate you, just so you know.........
Actually I am sooo envious. I tend to be an embodiment of my profession (engineer) and meticulously measure everything.
Just soften it.
Not sure about the vanilla at all; I’ve never coupled it with rhubarb.
I usually stick to a bit of ginger; or maybe some cinnamon & nutmeg, with walnuts; or orange.
I used the zest & extract because I didn’t have fresh orange peel that the recipes I adapted mine from all called for.
SHAME on you! All those precise measurements are totally useless, unless you are also compensating for the changes due to the mixing/slurrying/cooking properties of dry ingredients due to both the current relative humidity, and their age and storage conditions; and changes in cooking temperatures & times due to your current pressure altitude affecting boiling point(s).
You need to apply a set of properly calibrated correction tables to be used in conjunction with an accurate barometer & relative humidity reading, at the very least.
Or do what a lot of us do quite successfully: wing it by experienced eyeball for most things. LOL
My late FIL was an engineer; he was hardly ever allowed in the kitchen, other than for snacks or sandwiches.
I might go with the cinnamon & nutmeg with a touch of ginger. I just checked my recipe for the rhubarb crisp and while is uses cinnamon it didn’t call for vanilla, so I’ll leave it out. Thanks.
LOL! I do 99% of the cooking now that I am retired.....and have a mostly relaxing time doing it. Intense concentration, sure, but mostly relaxed (until I screw up).
That said, my wife knows to stay clear once the knives and pans start flashing: serious business at hand. Mebbe some day I will achieve the nonchalance of the real chef and stop being a kitchen technician...........
4 cups spinach
½ cup pomegranate seeds
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
In a large salad bowl, combine spinach and pomegranate seeds
Drizzle with olive oil and vinegar
Sprinkle with salt and pepper
Toss and serve
You guys are added to the Weekly Ping List
My sons feel the same way you do. They can’t stand it that I am not prepared to just turn over a cook book to them.
When they are home, they follow me around the kitchen and make sure I use measuring units so they can record my recipes.
This works to my advantage because I get them to stay in the kitchen with me and they tell me what to cook based on what they want to carry forward into their experience. They each have their own favorites.
Sweet and Spicy Almonds
1/4 c sugar
1 1/2 t kosher salt
1 t (or more) cayennne
1 T water
1 T honey
1 t olive oil
2-2 1/2 c raw whole almonds
Bake the almonds at 350 on a cookie sheet for about 10 minutes. Watch carefully, they burn easily.
Mix the sugar, salt and cayenne in a mixing bowl.
Add the water, honey and olive oil to a large skillet, heat on medium until bubbling.
Add the almonds and toss to coat.
Add the almonds to the salt/sugar/cayenne mixture to coat.
Cool to room temperature on a cookie sheet.
