Welcome to the 23rd 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 two - 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.
I would try to remember to get the nectar next time, so I can see the thickness. :)
Another thing nice is not having to drag out the mixer.
I put it in my corning ware dish with the glass lid. I made it on Saturday and we used it up on Monday. It is so moist I didn’t want to risk it going bad.
That’s another thing nice. Sometimes you just want a small cake and not a big one. Someone a few weeks back wanted a good breakfast cake, but I don’t recall who. :(

please don’t add any new recipes on this thread
this week’s post coming up
Cooking thread for May 21st
Yum! I have all this on hand. I think I’ll make it for dinner. I’m so tired of the food I could every month. :o)
These pork chops should be served with the traditional Yucatan onions:
Pickled red onion:
2 red onions, peeled and sliced very thinly
1/2 cup vinegar
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano
salt and pepper
Place onions in a saucepan, add water to cover, bring to a boil and remove from heat. Drain and rinse in cold water to stop cooking. You want them a little crunchy.
Place the onions in a glass container with the remaining ingredients and allow to sit for several hours before serving. They keep up to a week in the refrigerator. Also yummy on tacos.
Please put that yummy looking recipe on this week’s thread too!
I hope I posted it again in the right place. These cooking threads continue to confuse me.
These threads are weekly - when the new week comes up (every Saturday) I recap the recipes on the thread from the Saturday before- post that same recap on this Saturday’s thread so everyone can review and check back if they want to.....
On the old thread (from last Saturday)you’ll see the recap of that week’s recipes at the end of the thread- under that post I’ll link to the next(the current) cooking thread.
Each thread is connected to each other in the beginning post and the end of the thread. (unless people are still commenting back and forth in the old thread- like we are doing right now :>)
Technically you can click all the way back to the first post in December from the pinglist post at the beginning of each thread (or just check my profile page and the links are there for each week’s recap post)
Hope this explanation helps and isn’t more confusing :>)
The reason why I request recipes under the official close of a thread to the current week is because I recap the recipes and post the list on the current week - if a recipe comes in after I do that -the recipe is lost and won’t get recorded on the recap posts.
If people are looking for the recipe or that recipe type - they won’t find it in the recap posts.
I also have all the recipes on an excel sheet- so say if a holiday is coming up - I can list all past recipes and where to find them back in the old threads for that meal (say all appetizers for New Years or Superbowl - as an example)
And, if anyone comments they are looking for a recipe from months ago and give me a hint - I can usually find it pretty quick (if they have no luck in finding it themselves)
“... request recipes under the official close of a thread to the current week ...” Libertarian, please don’t take this as criticism, but statements like this are one of the reasons I have no clue how your system works. I will just trust to your continuing good nature to help me when I get lost again, as I inevitably will. The recipes are super. :)
I’m too wordy - it’s my downfall :>)
Let me try again:
Every Saturday there’s a new cooking thread
Every Saturday I recap recipes from last Saturday’s thread
When people look at the Cooking thread today (May 21st) they can see the recipes from last week - if they want to check them out (like that yummy sounding ‘Spiced Pear Cake’)-they can go to the link under the recap (on comment#2 on the May 21st post) and find it quick.
Your recipe for ‘Picked Red Onions’ was posted after I recapped all the recipes on the May 14th thread- it missed the list that I posted on this Saturday’s thread (But now, your recipe will be in the recap post for May 21st so people months from now can find it)
Oh bummer - I think I just got wordy again:>) sorry, I can’t help it :>)
Yeah! Rillettes! Love them!
Some things, the French do very well!
Couldn’t have said that better myself - when it comes to food, the French really have elevated it to a fine art!
