Thanksgiving side dishes you ABSOLUTELY can not live with out.
Posted: 11/4/2013 1:46:33 PM
Pears are so good right now and cheaper than apples. I'm using them in cakes and so on that I usually make with apples. I wonder if Ms Micki's dish would be good with pears in place of the apples, or a mixture of both?

Creme Fraiche
Posted: 11/2/2013 5:41:33 AM
I doubt you'd hurt pancake mix by using buttermilk instead of water, it might actually taste better.
You also ask about using powdered buttermilk in place of fresh. I like it for baking, lots of bread and cake recipes have buttermilk in them. But, I think in other recipes, like creme fraiche, it doesn't sound so good to me.
But, I'm curious,, how are you planning to use the creme fraiche?

Creme Fraiche
Posted: 11/1/2013 6:46:15 AM
You can buy butter milk in small containers, such as a pint, use the remaining milk for bread or pancakes.
Or instead of buttermilk, use 1/2 cup sour cream mixed with 1 cup heavy cream. Cover and allow to sit at room temp over night or until very thick. Stir well and store covered in refrigerator up to two weeks. Can be whipped till soft peaks form, it you choose.
For the foodie police, yes this came off the net, have no idea what site.

What no deviled eggs thread?
Posted: 10/17/2013 11:23:14 AM
I wonder if it was because they were cold? When we dye Easter eggs I always put them in the frig when we're done so I can make deviled eggs the next day. But, the shells are always hard to remove and the yolks sort of stick to the white, just as you said.

Slow cooker apple butter for canning.

I found a thread with the brittle Molly and bumped it up. It is time for thoughts of fall food and goodie baskets for the holidays. Wish I had a crock pot full of the apple butter, I haven't made anything this year. On my last jar of strawberry freezer jam. :[

sweet
Posted: 8/14/2013 9:59:34 AM
This is also a main ingredient in Banoffee Pie. The pie is made with a cookie crust, graham cracker, short bread are both good. Spread the caramel over the crust, top with sliced bananas, cover bananas with whipped cream. Chill for a couple of hours and serve.
In the area where I live I can find this caramel already prepared, it's by Nestle, comes in a can like sweetened condensed milk. It's usually located in the store where other canned milk products can be found or sometimes in the Mexican food section.
If I were going to make this at home, I'd do several cans at the same time, takes a long time as OP mentioned. It stores okay, so why not... I've also seen directions for doing this with a large roaster in the oven, water to cover cans, cook low for several hours. The advantage I saw to the oven method it less loss of the water covering the cans. It seems important to me to mention that if you let the water get too low on the stovetop,, the cans can explode... Hot milky syrup flying through the air, even if no one is burned,, there's a huge sticky mess to clean up...

Raw Eggs
Posted: 7/8/2013 4:29:18 PM
When I'm going to use uncooked eggs in a recipe I buy pasteurized eggs. Never thought too much about the outside of the shell being an issue, unless they were home raised and still had specks of chicken poo on them.

I have one, hardly ever use it. I leave it in my purse until the battery goes dead, then I'll remember to put it on the charger again. I don't text on it or ever check the voice mail,, so I suppose I would be fine, just like I was before I had one.
I only have it because my family worries about what I'd do if I had a problem with my junky old car while I was out of town.
Actually, I don't even know what the number is..

The best n easiest meatloaf
Posted: 6/4/2013 11:43:00 AM
Meatball Bombs
I saw something on another foodie forum that looked awesome for the grill or campfire. First you peel some onions then cut them in half and remove the inside layers. Next, take your meatloaf mixture and form into big balls,, size based on the size of the onions you are using. Put the meatloaf ball in the center of the onion and press the other half back on. Then wrap each one with heavy foil, sealing well to keep all the juices in and throw them on the grill or into the coals of your campfire. Cook until they're done,, can't give an exact time, depends on the size of the onion bombs and the heat of your fire. They looked delish,,,

help! never made a ham.
Posted: 4/24/2013 8:12:11 AM
One thing I've not read in regard to the curing [maybe I missed it] is injecting the curing liquid into the meat for more even curing. For Christmas last year I cured and smoked fresh pork butt and one of the things I read before starting them was about injecting the brine. The article said that it would cut back on the time needed for brining, as well as giving a more even cure through the meat. So, I tried it and was happy with the result, the hams we ended up with were very good. We smoked them with wood, it was a lot of work to keep the coals going in the firebox and maintaining a constant temp. I'm not sure I would do this again tho.
A few years ago I had some wild hogs, nasty job dressing those out. Anyway, I cured and smoked all the roasts from them, but didn't do the injection because they were much smaller. Those were the best hams I've ever eaten...

Make your own alfredo!
Posted: 4/11/2013 3:52:58 PM
Please share the name of this "butter" if you don't mind. I am curious about "low fat" butter, because butter is just fat, that's all, just dairy fat.
I have noticed, in regard to the low fat cream compared to regular cream, they remove some grams of fat which are replaced by some type of sugar. So it becomes a trade-off, less fat, more sugar, less fat more sugar.
You can use canned evaporated milk which is lower in fat, to retain the creaminess, but it is still not going to taste the same as full cream.

Posted: 3/30/2013 6:22:59 PM
Precooked means the ham has already been cooked. In that case heat @ 325 15 minutes per pound until internal temp is 140. I would add the water mentioned above to keep it from drying out, tent loosely with foil.
If you want a glaze you can mix pineapple and brown sugar with a squirt of Dijon mustard and coat your ham about 30 minutes before removing from oven, without the foil. You could also finish it off with the broiler, that's probably what I'd do.

Best Pie Crust I've Ever Had!
Posted: 1/17/2013 4:17:05 AM
@M. She's just using the foil to keep from getting flour all over the counter top while rolling the crust. Easier clean-up, just put the foil into the trash when done.
I use clean brown paper bags instead of the foil, for the same reason. But usually, I reuse the paper several times and then put it into the recycling.
I don't make lots of pie crusts, but do make biscuits, rolls and so on that have to be worked in some manner on a floured surface. I remember my Grandmother's kitchen had a pastry board that pulled out of the counter top to use for this sort of thing, anyone else remember seeing those? I think it used to be common in old houses.

homemade salad dressings
Posted: 1/5/2013 6:35:49 AM
Jojo, sounds like it would be great with beef!

Here are a couple of dressings I make, we enjoy them.

Bleu Cheese Dressing
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 c. mayo
1 c. sour cream
2 to 4 cloves garlic, I use a garlic press or grater rather than mincing
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
juice and zest of 1 lemon
6 oz. crumbled bleu cheese
cracked black pepper and sea salt to taste
Combine all ingredients well, pour into a container with tight lid and chill several hours. I use all the garlic, you may not like as much,, to your taste..
Love this on field green and spinach salad

Creamy Italian Dressing
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dry Italian herb mix
1 clove garlic, minced, crushed or grated,, what ever works for you
Combine all ingredients well and chill.
I like this dressing for pasta salads.

So, I have no idea where I got these recipes, or how much I've adjusted the ingredients, I've been using them for a long time.

Slow cooker apple butter for canning.
Posted: 1/3/2013 12:35:54 PM
Molly, last time I made apple butter, at the end of this past summer, I skipped peeling or coring, just washed the apples, cut them in half and started them cooking. When they were nice and soft I ran them through my colander [ the big cone thingy used in canning ] and then returned the sauce to my pot, added spices, sugar and so on and continued to cook it. It was so much easier than all that peeling and less waste, I believe.
I didn't reread the thread so I don't remember any exact recipes, but one thing I did add this year that was new to me was apple cider vinegar when the apples were cooking. Gave it a little extra pop,, try it, if you have the cider vinegar.
I also froze all I made this year, I have lots of freezer space and it didn't change flavor or texture. I just put the jars on a freezer shelf when cooled, without tightening the cap at all, then when frozen screwed on the lids. But if you have plastic food containers those will work well too.

new years day....what ya gonna make?
Posted: 1/1/2013 9:49:03 AM
Chick, for the size roast you have follow Kid's directions and cook 60 to 70 minutes for rare, just a little longer for med rare. As the guys are telling you, it's a crap shoot without the meat thermometer. For what you paid for the roast, I'd have sprung for the price of the thermometer too. Lots of ovens aren't accurate, mine isn't, I have to adjust the temp setting to account for that, so do you know if your oven is accurate? It really matters to know.
Good lock with your dinner, it sounds great.. Just remember, you can't fix overcooked meat.

Christmas Gift Baskets from the Kitchen
Posted: 12/22/2012 4:05:39 AM
I've made three batches of Landra's cracker brittle, each one a little different. It's a great recipe! The last batch, I didn't have enough butter, so I used half butter and half margarine, worked just fine, I also used dark brown sugar in some of it, light in the last batch. It was slightly different, but just as good.
Great recipe Landra, thank you.

1 cup pineapple juice
8 cups sugar
Bring to a boil stirring to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to medium and cook 2 to 3 hours until the color and consistency of honey.
Pour into sterile jars, seal and hot water bath 10 min.

Lol @ Rax... Just speaking for myself here, but I drink several cups of coffee in the morning and usually a cup or two at night. But, after about half an hour it doesn't taste fresh to me, then I pour it out and make more. So I am loving one cup at a time, every cup is fresh and it takes less than a minute to brew. Probably not wasting as much coffee either..

I just bought a new coffee maker last week. It's also brews a single cup at a time, choice of two sizes however. It is a Mr Coffee, but uses the Keurig pods or discs, what ever you call them. But cost about $30 or $40 less than the similar K machine sitting on the shelf next to it.
Keurig makes a reusable mesh basket that fits inside a thing which replaces the thingy the pods go in. Confusing you yet??? Anyway, the little thing also fits the Mr Coffee coffee maker,, cost about $17, so I got one.
So, I use the coffee brand I like to drink normally,, grind the beans every morning and get a really good hot cup of coffee, takes about 60 seconds.

HOT DOGS, CONEYS, FOOTLONGS AND SAUSAGES
Posted: 7/13/2012 6:10:31 PM
State Fair Super Dogs [Corn Dogs]

1 cup flour
1/2 cup corn flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar [or honey]
1/4 teaspoon soda, maybe a little more
1 egg
1/2 to 1 cup buttermilk
corn starch
8 to 12 hot dogs
Remove hot dogs from package and dry with paper towels or what ever then insert wooden sticks and coat lightly with corn starch. This helps the batter stick. Round skewers are good, I use flat wooden sticks like an ice cream bar has.
Mix dry ingredients, if you're using sugar add it here.
Beat egg with 1/2 cup buttermilk, if you're using honey instead of sugar, add it here.
Mix dry with wet adding more milk as needed to get a smooth, thick batter.
Coat hot dogs well with batter, I always make a big mess at this point, but then I'm sort of a messy cook anyway.
Then drop into hot oil, about 375 degrees and deep enough to float the dogs , fry one first side lightly and begin turning until light golden brown all around. Remove and drain on paper towels.

Pork and Pineapple Rice
Posted: 7/10/2012 9:43:25 PM
Yeah well, this is how it went for dinner tonight. I was cooking with 5 kids and the basset hound in the front of the house with me, my focus wasn't at %100.
So, couldn't find the ground pork in the freezer ~ maybe it went into a pot of chili, who knows really, but I found a package of pork rib-eyes which I sliced into strips. I went with the soy, garlic, ginger and dried red chili flakes on the pork, added some fresh snow peas with the other veggies, just cause I could.
Anywho, got everything cooked and on the table, but kept feeling like I forgot something. Oh well, we ate and it was really good, then I was back in the kitchen and there was the basil and almonds still on the counter. Yeah, wish I'd remembered, but another time, right?
I'll make this again Blahah, thanks for sharing..
Oh Rax I added some fish sauce too, I also love the way it kicks up the flavor.
