Tried Recipes from POF...Let's hear it :)Page 1 of 1    
I am new on here and have spent a good portion of time copying the recipes that other people have posted on here... What I would like to know, is how many people have tried them and gave a thumbs up...and which recipes were they.

I think it would be neat to let the others know if their recipe was a hit as I have noticed a few different guys on here that share quite the recipes and I think it would be nice to let them know if something did turn out fabulous.

used to be...

there were a lot of scratch cookers on here...

pre-packaged and from mix was not the the kinda recipies that were shared...

I see little less of the regulars on here and I think it recipies like TACOS IN SHELLS...

I would never cook that, and more of the cooking is like that...

so I will to say fare well to one of my favorite fourms...

Hi Saguy

It's a shame that you are leaving...you are one of perhaps the four "men" the I have copied recipes from. Scratch cooking it great no doubt, but in todays times, unfortunately can't always be done due to the time involved. I just happen to love cooking, but for those that don't, scratch cooking certainly won't be a priority..so really its kinda nice to have a balance of both, I would think. Alot of these scratch recipes are coming from chefs and unfortunately I am not one of them.

Anyways, thanks for the recipes that you have provided on here..and good luck :)

HEY!
I've posted a few recipes from scratch.. I think... But sometimes, the quick and easy stuff wins the race too.
Anyway, so far, I've liked a lot of the stuff I've seen up here. All the stuff, aside from the Ice Cream stuff I've tried. I don't like cooking stuff out of the box much unless I'm serious pressed for time. The prep time on stuff usually isn't that long anyway, aside from chopping things up.
I do know I like to keep it simple...
Anyway, I guess you can just search my name to see what's there.

Hey Virtual

lol...I have already pulled some of your recipes that you have posted .... I have the pork shoulder ready to go and dying to try it...question though...I am not a salt lover ...so when you say a handful of rock salt...can I omit it, and is it as salty as normal salt...looks like im going to learn something new today

AWESOME!!
I feel very validated! (excuse the celebration)

Well, Kahlua Pig is supposed to be salty. I think you can do it without the salt or just use a couple pinches (or an Emerill "BAM!"), but I can't guarantee the results. I think this is a lot like Mexican Carnitas which uses a lot less salt. I'd say give it a shot and see how it goes. I don't think the salt is a requirement to say the least.

1930'S STYLE FRIED POTATO SLICES
Posted: 12/4/2005 1:00:01 PM
Here is a recipe I got off of my grandmother many years ago when she was alive, it is a recipe that she got off of a lady she knew during the Great Depression of the 1930's. I'll admit that it can be fattening depending on how many you eat and what you put on them but they are so good to eat! You can put anything you want on them from salad dressing to ketchup to salt and vinegar, whatever you fancy.

Here is the recipe:-

1 cup of flour
1 tablespoon of Magic Baking Powder (whatever brand doesn't matter)
1 teaspoon of salt
1 cup of water
largest potatoes you can find.

1.) First of all get the biggest potatoes you have, you can either peal them or leave the peal on after you have washed them. Then slice them width ways.

2.) Mix the flour, Magic Baking Powder and salt together, add the water to the mixture only until it becomes like batter and then heat up your largest and deepest frying pan or deep fryer after you have filled it with cooking oil.

3.) Dip the potato slices into the batter so that it coats them completely and then place them into the frying pan or fryer, make sure that they are covered in the oil on top and underneath. Fry until golden brown and serve them on plates and enjoy!

This is the kind of recipe that your children might like or you or your family, especially if they or you like french fries. It is an inexpensive way of making a meal and tastes so good at the same time, if you want you can put other things with them to eat but they are filling so you might have to change your mind, depending on how hungry you are and if you are sort of watching your waste line, I leave it up to you, okay?

As far as recipes from Scratch? Well now that i have found this forum I will try and post a new recipe daily from scratch. I will be posting mainly baked products as they are my favorite to prepare.

Today I posted a Cookie recipe that uses 3.25 pounds of chocolate to make 3 dozen cookies and it only uses 4oz of flour....Very Rich and Very Chocolatey. I haven't found too many people that can eat more than 2..if they even finish the 2nd one..lol

Scratch cooking it great no doubt, but in todays times, unfortunately can't always be done due to the time involved.

Scratch cooking is great and cheaper in the long run, especially if you prep your meals all at once.

Chicken breasts ... do bbq'd chicken one night, make chicken cordon bleu and freeze, slice a couple of breasts for stir-fry, place in freezer bag with marinade and you've got 2 meals ready to go.

Ground beef ... make meat loaf or hamburgers for 1 meal, cook and season enough ground beef for tacos and freeze for another night, make 2 lasagna and freeze 1.

Roast beef ... thinly slice a portion of the leftover roast and freeze for hot roast beef sandwiches or cut into bite-size pieces and make a Shepherd's Pie.

Potatoes ... make a batch of mashed potatoes and freeze in individual bags.

Having been raised in an Italian family atmosphere where meals were always cooked each Sunday for the whole week or close to it... All day good talk and good food being prepared... Sure kept the family close
"SIGH" sure wish I had paid more attention to the women cooking back then but I was a little boy who knew no better LOL

One thing I love to do is either bake or deep fry a turkey then use the left overs... Slice for cold sandwiches, cube for soups, stews or salads. Make stock from the bones... So much you can do and roast either pork or beef can go along way also...

Cooking for me is pure joy especially watching when someone enjoys themselves eating

GLAD YOU LIKE IT!!
Posted: 6/23/2006 7:12:26 PM
Onlylivewunce, I am very glad you like my grandmother's recipe that she got off of a friend of her's, during the Great Depression of the 1930's, I am the one that originally posted it in the first place on the recipe segment of the forum on Plentyoffish.com! Of course, I don't see why you can't use the batter part of the recipe on fish, it just might work, so give it a try, okay? As a matter of fact, you could probably use the batter part of the recipe on most types of vegetables that are like potatoes in some way, go ahead and experiment with it, you might create a new recipe that way that others could use, right? Maybe even combine the whole thing in some way, both fish and potatoes if you like, it might be interesting to see what kind of new taste you come up with.

I posted the recipe to try to help others, who might either have children of their own or can't afford too much to stretch their budgets or to experiment with, I think that experimentation is probably how new recipes were created in the first place. You could also try and use different ways of using the original recipe by adding whatever you fancy as a topping or maybe putting something inside the potato slices depending on how thick you make the potato slices when you cut them, etc. Try using your imagination when experimenting with the recipe, everyone who loves to cook probably has a very vivid imagination when they try different ways when making things when they cook using a recipe, I know I do! Then maybe if you want to post it on this part of the forum that way you'll helping others too, I am always looking for recipes to use myself that require only one pan or whatever, instead of using the oven at this time of year, so I'll come back and see what you have done, I'd be extremely grateful for new ideas in cooking and recipes if you would, thanks!
