I like it!!! Not that I find a lot of time for cooking these days...but that doesn’t mean I won’t try some of these. I’d be interested in a ping list, if you have one. Thanks!
One of my favorites
You’re added to the ping list!
Easy to make, but it was a little plain. However, when I went to the website to get the link, I noticed a bunch of variations on the theme, which could improve it.
First off, I could have baked a vegetable right into it, instead of serving them on the side. And I just saw a recipe that suggested bacon. Well, duh! Everything goes better with bacon! (esp. more bacon!)
Since if was beef and cheddar and bread, I suggested we go with salsa, like on taco night, rather than catsup, like on burger night. (Tee-hee, spell-checker doesn't like that spelling. Just wanted to try it.)
Sooooo good to see you! Thanks!
i do most of the cooking and i am rather good at it. here is a quick chicken dish.
1 package boneless skinless chicken breasts (though lately i have been using chicken tenders as they cook faster)
8oz package of mushrooms (my frau loves mushrooms)
roll chicken in flour and seasonings (depending on my mood i could go mexican using cumin, oregano, smoked paprika OR italian using oregano, rosemary, basel)
brown in skillet
dump in mushrooms ( i sometimes add garlic, chopped onions, jalapenos...)
squirt in a bunch of lemon juice
turn down, cover and simmer for 20min (breasts) or less time for tenders.
sometimes i will remove everything from the pan when it is done and add some flour and make a thick sauce.
serve with rice, flavored or white and a veggie.
RED GRAPE SALAD
Clean and Dry Red Grapes Thoroughly.
1..8oz pkg. cream cheese.....room temp.
1/2 cup Splenda or sugar of choice.....sweeten to taste. (the 1/2 cup Splenda is plenty, and I found it more agreeable than regular sugar)
1/2 cup Finely chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped Pecans
Mix.......refrigerate until needed.
I tried making this the day before, I wasn't pleased. Now, I mix & add to the grapes about 2 hours before serving.
P.S.: It only took 1/2 pkg.of the cream cheese for a large bowl of grapes. But, you can make it all, use what is needed, and put left over in Frig., use a as dip for other fruits as wanted.
1 (14.75 ounce) can salmon
1 sleeve Ritz crackers
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
Drain salmon, remove bones and put fish in large mixing bowl
Place crackers into plastic bag and crumble until they are crumbs
Add crumbs to fish
Add 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Add 1 tablespoon parsley
Add 1 diced onion
Mix/knead thoroughly with hands until ingredients are thoroughly combined
Shape into patties about 3-4 inches round
Fry in 1/4" - 1/2" oil about 5-mins each side (I use olive oil)
Makes about 8 patties
Please add me to your ping list. Thanks.
Gosh darn it! You’re making me hungry and dinner isn’t for some hours yet.
That recipe looks delicious. I will have to try it.
Thanks for posting.
Each recipe thread link is on my profile page from the past two years, have fun with them, lots of great recipes.
Thanks, I will take a look at them and see if I have any recipes that haven’t been posted.
GREEK SEASONING / tastes EXACTLY like store bought spice
Attach a label that reads: good tossed w/ chicken, lemon juice, olive oil, then skewered/grilled. Add to vinaigrette poured over Greek salad w/ feta cheese. A good meat seasoning---rubbed on a few hours before roasting. Add to saucer of olive oil to use as bread-dipping appy.
SEASONING: Mix 1 1/2 tea oregano, tea ea dried mint/thyme, 1/2 tea ea dried basil/marjoram/minced onion, 1/4 tea dried minced garlic.
I’m deep frying some pickles (BOGO at Publix). Usually I use bread and butter chips and drain them in a colander for an hour or so.
From there into a little baggie with some flour in it for a shaking then into the egg bath, followed by a good dredging in panko.
I’ve been frying almost everything in a cast iron skillet on my grill so as to not smell up my house, and it works fine for something like this. I fry the pickles in shortening.
Once they’re done - back to the strainer on some paper towels and then into some dipping sauce - usually ranch. Once I start eating them, it’s pretty much all over.
Heat up in some water.
In water? THAT’S what I’ve been doing wrong!
