These cooking threads are great! Thanks for doing them!
I have a vegetarian recipe. It calls for 2 vegetarians and serves 150 cannibals.
So many recipes - we are 43 weeks in for this year and the wonderful recipes keep coming!
I think on the 52nd week I’ll post a huge listing of all the recipes from the full year....categorized for easy look-up - hopefully the thread will look like a Gigantic Online Free Republic Cook Book.
Here's a good cake recipe for the fall. I have been making Louisiana Yam Cake for over 40 years, and it is still a hit every where I take it.
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 tsp cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups oil
2 cups canned yams ( I use Bruce's)
4 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Sift dry ingredients.
Mash yams for 1hr
In large bowl put sugar and beat in eggs one at a time by hand.
Add oil, Yams and vanilla
Mix pecans in the dry ingredients and add to the sugar, oil and yam mixture.
You can either make 12 jumbo cupcakes, or oil and flour a large bundt pan. Bake the cupcakes for 30 to 35 minutes , the bundt 1hr 15min or until tester comes out clean.
Cool inverted on plate
4oz. cream cheese
1/2 box powdered sugar or until consistory is what you like.
1/2 stick butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Mix together until smooth
Split the bundt cake in half and put the frosting on the bottom half. Top with the crown and sift powdered sugar on top.
I made the cupcakes and sold them last week at a huge town wide yard sale. Sold out both days A sweet hundred in profit.
In the Back from left to right is Smoked Spanish Paprika, clarified butter, 1/3 cup of Jack Daniels, Bacon drippings, and an onion. Up front from left to right is the local short rib Ladder, then the beautiful thick Kobe Beef Short Ribs a couple of stalks of celery and a carrot.
I will only use the butter if the bacon drippings is not enough to brown the Ribs and then saute the veggies.
I will be using the recipe from here Braised Beef Short Ribs
I am adding the Jack Daniels because I like the flavor it adds and will use a zinfandel for the wine. And adjust the recipe to 6 short ribs instead of the 12 called for.
???????? Alarmed! Typo?
OMG! cancell the 1 hour mash.
Oh gosh! *Salivating*
When's supper - I was just thinking I should stop by your house today! *yummy-lol's*
Sliced very cold pork tenderloin into 1-1½" thick strips (chilled meat slices more easily)
Marinated for 1 hour in:
-2Tb corn starch
-3 dried chili peppers
Vegetables (personal preference):
-fresh baby brussel sprouts cleaned & sliced in half (snow peas are great too)
-canned baby corn, rinsed
-fresh sliced mushrooms
Heat peanut oil & chili sesame oil (spice to suit taste) in wok. Cook pork until all pink is gone (about 5 min.)
Remove meat from wok, set aside in a bowl
Cook vegetables until mushrooms are reduced and brussel sprouts are lightly browned (carmelized).
Add meat back into mixture to heat.
Serve over rice.
It’s worth the trouble! not kidding
Great idea! Thank you. I have enjoyed these threads very much.
I came up with this recipe for my family by combing a few of my favorite recipes together. They absolutely love it, and it is a great recipe for vegetarians or meat lovers! I had a small amount of leftover Stir Fry and Fajita mixtures from dinner’s earlier in the week and threw that in with the rice mixture this week, and it was delicious and a great one pot meal.
Brown and Wild Rice Pilaf with Bulgar Wheat
1 cup Wild Rice
1 cup Brown Rice
1 cup Bulgur Wheat
Oil or bacon drippings for sautéing vegetables
1 onion, finely chopped
1 cup celery, finely chopped
1 cup carrot, finely chopped
1 cup, mushrooms, sliced or one or two small cans of sliced mushrooms
1 cup cabbage or spinach, finely chopped (optional)
6 cups of chicken, beef, or vegetable broth or stock
2 tablespoons Fajita Seasoning or your Favorite Seasoning Blend
Sauté vegetables in oil in a large Dutch oven. Add seasonings and stir over low heat to develop the flavor of the spices. Add all the rice and bulgur wheat and the broth. Cook covered in a 375-degree oven for 1-1 ½ hours until the rice has absorbed all the liquid.
For a one-pot meal, add leftover chicken, beef or pork along with the rice.
For added flavor, this recipe is also good with a handful of dried fruit added to it such as Craisins, raisins, or even chopped dried apricots.
Tip: This is a great way to use up leftover fajita or stir-fry by simply throwing it in along with the rice and broth. Any leftover meat or vegegables would be good in this, just make sure anything you add to it is bite size.
Its short circuiting from drool!
OK! This one’s going in the recipe box! Trying it real soon. Sounds delish!
When’s dinner? I’ll be right over!
LOL!!! Good one!
