Best Sandwich Recipe, Hot or Cold.
Posted: 8/5/2009 6:56:22 PM
Good idea, Sanderick! I love water chestnuts in tuna/chicken salads. Good crunch. If you're feeling like something different some time, try the tuna salad with all your ingredients but use cream cheese to bind it. Some grn onions add kick too. It's awfully tasty.

Sounds like you got a good deal on the salmon, Raz? It's soooo versatile and healthy.

AMAZING 6 Cheese Tortellini with prosciutto, mushrooms & bacon.
Posted: 7/30/2009 2:24:55 PM
Clearly, an awesome dish. I'd use drinking wine, too, but wow, this looks like the best artery clogger I've seen in a while. It's very rich though and I imagine you'd only need a SMALL serving to really enjoy it!

Dipping sauces for steak. Anyone have a good one?
Posted: 7/30/2009 1:58:15 PM
.Marc, I have always found that bernaise and beef go very, very well together! Sometimes, just a teaspoon of Dijon blended in adds a nice bite to cut the creaminess of the bernaise.

I think that sounds about right. I was gonna say 30 min at 375-400. Check it now and then and be sure to trust your nose. Once you can smell it keep an eye on it.

Shrimp Scampi???
Posted: 4/9/2009 7:45:41 PM
You and I work it the same way, Carolann...important not to overcook the shrimp.

Only difference, is I marinate them in olive oil, sherry or wine and garlic/parsley for a couple hours before cooking. Pour some of the marinade in a hot skillet, cook the shrimp briefly for a couple minutes on each side and remove. Then add the butter and the rest of the marinade and cook till bubbly. Add the shrimp back in to bathe in the glory for another couple minutes. Depending on my mood, I might add capers.

I like this over pasta. Even though some HATE cheese and seafood, sometimes, I mix the sauce with the pasta, top with scampi and add shredded Parmesan and pop under the broiler for a couple minutes at the end.

Heaven on a plate!

You favorite hot sauce/condiment/dressing?
Posted: 3/11/2009 5:54:52 PM
Well, probably Best Foods/Hellman's Mayo is my go-to condiment, but aside from that, I'm also in the Sriracha club!

Also have Mae Ploy sweet chili/garlic sauce, all kindsa mustards (including honey mustard and Grey Poupon), creamy horseradish, Litehouse Bleu Cheese and Thousand Island, Sugoi's Garlic Sauce, Heinz Ketchup.

Come to think of it, I need to get some liquid smoke. I'm all out!

Flounder Salmon Roulade
Posted: 4/7/2008 3:58:04 PM
Wow, Smiling, love your roulade recipe! Don't think I'd use half and half to poach it, though. Save the calories and do something like maybe 1/2 clam juice or seafood stock and half sherry. Might swap goat cheese for boursin...

Super interesting idea, though. You've opened the hatch to lots of ideas! I love it!

BLT Pizza
Posted: 11/30/2007 6:03:09 PM
Hi GS,

I'm a long time lover of BLT Pizza, thanks to California Pizza Kitchen. They bake the crust with tomato, bacon and cheese and toss the lettuce in mayo. If they don't put mayo on the crust, they certainly should. Then, it's plopped on the pizza. Soo incredibly good. I love the hot and cold contrast along with the chewy/rich and crunchy.

I must say, I would have no problem with an alfredo sauce - even though I'm a mayo lover!

What side dishes do you serve at Thanksgiving Dinner that have become a family tradition
Posted: 11/15/2007 2:59:17 PM
I think it's a GREAT idea to do tater salad and/or deviled eggs for T-day. Personally, even though most people dig it the most, no sweet potatoes or yams for me. No squash or green bean casserole and especially, no lima beans or brussels sprouts.

We tend to take care of the veggies via a relish tray of all mixed stuff. Sour cream cucumbers, marinated mushrooms and asparagus wrapped in prosciutto, olives, stuffed celery (with herbed cream cheese), baby carrots and bread and butter pickles. Naturally, cranberries!

We also do a take on creamed onions but they're "Cheesed Onions". How bad could that possibly be?

I like the simplest stuffing you can imagine. Just bread, butter, celery, onion and S & P. Moistened with the stock made from the turkey neck and innards. People always think it's complicated, but it's SOOO not!

Local regional dishes that others might not be aware of ?
Posted: 10/25/2007 3:09:22 PM
Oh, fries and mayo or really good tartar sauce. Heaven, I tell ya. A little malt vinegar before dipping. Never had poutine but I would certainly be willing to try it! Fries, cheese and gravy? What kinda gravy I wonder? Real gravy from chicken or meat drippings would be dandy fine, I think.

I guess for us here in Hawaii, the regional dish would be pork cooked underground in an imu, known as Kalua Pig. I actually had it cooked on a rotisserie in someone's yard once. The skin was unbelievably crispy and tasty. Soooo bad for you, which is exactly why it's so good!

MINTED LAMB BURGERS
Posted: 9/24/2007 8:13:24 PM
Dang, I just love, love, love lamb. Mint is a fave of mine, too. Esp. in Vietnamese Beef Salad. Heaven.

Old coworker made the BEST lamb kebabs with ground baaaahhh: mint, oregano, rosemary, onion, lots of garlic and yogurt, I think. On the grill, they were a force to be reckoned with! Slapped into a hot pita with lots of tzatziki...miss that.

WW

P.S. Matter of fact, I have some lamb riblets marinating in prep for din-din tonight. Olive oil, rosemary, sherry and garlic.

Yes you can control dreams - and nightmares too.
Posted: 9/21/2007 6:55:45 PM
I agree...

From all that I've read and been told by dream "therapists" and counselors, it IS possible to reprogram your dreams. As mentioned above, it's best done right before you fall asleep. Decide what you are going to dream about. Watch a movie, show, read a book, read a letter or just repeat to yourself over and over what you WILL dream about.

I suffered for 2 years myself...it was hellacious. I had to decide, as well as reprogramming, that I wanted him gone from both my conscious AND subconscious.

You've got some really helpful folks here. Keep talking...!

Is this sauce served with gau gee and crispy won tons? If so, hmmm, probably a plum sauce. Is it really red? I don't care for that partick sweet sauce - guess I'm more of a spicy chicky!

Maybe you should try a super delicious staple that is EVERYWHERE here in Hawaii...it's called Mae Ploy Sweet Chili Sauce. Just a tad spicy and sweet. I have a ginormous bottle in my fridge. Just so nummers!

Great Sandwhich
Posted: 9/10/2007 4:10:29 PM
Hi Jannick,

Look at the description above my post re: Monte Cristos. That's a better description than I could give you.

The Macadamia Nut Factory (old in reference to the fact that it's long gone) was a restaurant in Waikiki, circa 1982, that served a frickin' fanstastic Monte Cristo sandwich. Ham, turk, cheddar and swiss cheese on french bread (not sourdough). They deep fried it and sprinkled powered sugar on top. Served it with some kinda dip, which I don't recall now. Probably Ranch, since Ranch was just coming into it's own here, way back then!

Posted: 9/10/2007 3:40:36 PM
More water than you need (1 gal to 1 lb of pasta is good) + salt + stir, stir, stir as it hits the boiling water = perfection. As RK said, only rinse to shock the pasta out of continued cooking.

Dill pickle and Peanut butter sandwiches...
Posted: 9/10/2007 3:29:28 PM
Oh! Any Witchy? Dunno if I mentioned it before, but Mom and Dad BOTH loved (Mom's still addicted) to PB and mayo sandwiches (and/or) toast with lettuce. Mom loves toast with PB and mayo. Rather thicker than I would like, but hey, if a little thing like that makes you happy, why the heck not?

I confess, I love the PB, mayo and lettuce myself!

'K, so I haven't tried the pickles with the PB...I'm willing, though! Dill would prob. be my preference, as I like the garlicky action there.

What about bread and butter pickle slices? Not too sweet, not too tart - no garlic. Just wondering.

I did try the PB and bacon. No likey. I'm using chunky, though, maybe that's why? Also, I had an Aussie roomie who turned me on to Vegemite sammies. Very good! She toasted whole wheat bread. Spread Vegemite on one side and buttered the other. Then, she put sharp cheddar cheese on both sides and popped it under the broiler again. Must say, it was quite yummy! Veg to me tastes a bit like thickened beef bouillon.

Harley! Oh, yeah, Monte Cristo...I still remember freaking my roommate out (unintentionally). I'd gone to lunch with my BF's parents. I ordered the Monte Cristo at the old Macadamia Nut Factory. It was perfect. However, they did dust the top with powdered sugar.

So, it was gi-normous. I ate half and put the rest in the fridge. Roommie came home pretty soused and grabbed my sammie, thinking it was a donut!!! Hah! Joke was on her when she bit into it. She took a bite and threw it out...Thanks, girl!

She told me the next day...I laughed till I puked. That's what she gets, huh?

Speaking of shrimp and pizza, Zette, the two are an awesome combo!

I buy the frozen 16-20's and soak 'em in o. oil, sherry and garlic, splash lemon. Make a bechamel for the pizza base. Then, cover the pie with shrimp, capers, bell peppers, shrooms, onions, minced garlic and top with swiss cheese. A real heart stopper. You can even drizzle some of the marinade over.

Are you baking your shrimp?
