Title: What's for Dinner... and did you make enough for me
Post by: lise on November 07, 2007, 07:12:42 PM
I'm thinking of making steak salad for dinner, but so far I'm still at work. :( Of course this hasn't stopped me from snacking on the leftover veggie stir fry from lunch.

What about you?

Steak salad sounds good - wish I had some steak.

I'm making Trader Joe's Chicken Teriyaki stir-fry, which is fine, but a little too monotonous for my family who's getting tired of Trader Joe's cookin' and wants some good home cookin'

I love you, lise! :)

I cooked early tonight because I had to come back to campus and otherwise I wouldn't get ot eat with my family.  I made braised chicken thighs with penne tossed in butter and herbs.  It was really scrumptuous!

Hey Oneaprilday...try the Trader Joe's Gnocchi with their turkey meatballs and some steamed broccoli. You can do it all in one big pan and kids love it.  At least mine say they do.

Cool, but you should just make more bread so that you can share it with us... what kind of bread was it?

Plain ol' white bread, but it went over very well with both groups of tasters that were graced with loaves. 

I did not get my french onion soup tonight, I settled for beer.  I don't think I'll make it to the library a early as I hoped.

that sounds good...

I on the other hand went to a seminar and scavenged dinner from the reception after. So I had a little bit of fresh salmon/locks/and a cheese bruschetta thingy, some spinach and chicken and ham and cheese pinwheel puff pastries, a bit of mozzarella, tomato, and basil, and some sushi. Only a couple bits of each thing but now I'm full. Of course I washed it down with a bit of white wine. Sometimes being at a hoity-toity research inst. comes in handy.

We're ordering in from our favorite vegan restaurant in Chinatown.

Spring Rolls
Wonton Soup
Fried "Shrimp" Balls
Scallion Pancakes (many of you may call this "Chinese Pizza")
General Tso's "Chicken"

I'm gonna be a happy boy.

I had some great gnocchi in a restaurant in Vancouver, B.C. -and though I can't remember if it was piping hot, I certainly don't remember it being lukewarm.

I'm am picky about my food being hot, but I'm not really the type to complain. I'm more likely to just never go back to the restaurant. I have a favorite Italian restaurant. I think I'll try their gnocchi and make a temperature comparison.

You made me curious about gnocchi, so I just checked my Silver Spoon cookbook (the Italian Joy of Cooking - only much better!) - every single one of the 18 gnocchi dishes are supposed to be served hot. I think I'd be suspicious of those restaurants you went to.  :)

My sister was in town from Jersey and wanted a nice meal...so I made roasted Tri-tip with fingerling potatoes & carrots,  grilled zuchini and Maui onions.  I also got to use my new favorite cooking utensil.....a Blow Torch!!!  I grated some English Cheddar with caramelized onions on the Tri-tip and then melted that baby something fierce with the torch.  The pyro in me rejoiced.

Low key, but nice. We ate, returned some videos to the store, got some milkshakes and came back and watched Project Runway. He left right after, he had a half hour drive home and work in the morning. We're going to see a Neil LaBute play tomorrow, I think it's called Fat Pig. Should be fun, I've never seen any shows in Greensboro and apparently they're pretty good.

we ended up not making it.  i just couldn't remember all the stuff that the beans cook with and what might be in the fake meat - was pretty sure there was nothing dairy but not positive.  here is the emeril recipe i work off of, striking all the meat and adding some fake sausage of some kind:

1 pound dried red beans, rinsed and sorted over
3 tablespoons bacon grease
1/4 cup chopped tasso, or chopped ham
1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onions
3/4 cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped green bell peppers
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Pinch cayenne
3 bay leaves
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons fresh thyme
1/2 pound smoked sausage, split in half lengthwise and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 pound smoked ham hocks
3 tablespoons chopped garlic
10 cups chicken stock, or water
4 cups cooked white rice
1/4 cup chopped green onions, garnish

Crabmeat stuffed trout with whole wheat couscous and veggies.  Mmmm....

Mmmm indeed!  :) Are you cooking?

Yep, I do a lot of cooking.  I find it relaxing and I like to do it a lot on the weekends when I have time.

I love cooking, too - don't find I have much time these days. Very depressing.

Well, I don't have 2 girls and a teaching job, so don't be too depressed.  I am usually busy during the week, but I try to cook most nights, something quick.  I save the big meals for the weekend.

I wish I had time to develop my cooking skills. When I was off work for a summer I grew my own vegetables and cooked all the time, but since I started working 40+ hours a week, I can't do it. Actually it isn't the cooking I mind, but the grocery shopping and dishes. Plus I find myself starving when I get home and too hungry to put on a production.

I usually do my shopping on the weekends or during lunch, since I am by a Treasure Island and a Trader Joe's.  I then plan my meals for the week so I know what I am cooking on what day.  It's the only way I know that I will cook all week.  Even then, some nights I just don't feel like cooking.

I did try planning meals for the week. You ever find yourself following a recipe that calls for a tablespoon of tomato paste and a 1/4 cup of chicken broth and then having a whole can of tomato paste and chicken broth leftover. Then scouring cookbooks for recipes that call for tomato paste and chicken broth, so as not to waste tomato paste and chicken broth. This is why I gave up on cooking.

You have to get tomato paste that comes in a tube, then you can store it in a fridge, and it lasts forever.

That's when I've generally done my best cooking, too - I'll plan a week in advance and get all my shopping done for that week. I love seeing my frig full of fresh veggies and herbs and meats things - all ready for me to make something delish. But that kind of planning/cooking goes in fits and starts. I'm not in that mode right now. These days, most of the time, I start looking in the frig and cupboards around 5 or 6 and just throw something together.  :(

Love the idea of growing one's own vegetables, winrit.  :) I always try to scrounge off my father-in-law who does a huge, gorgeous garden every summer.

Tomato paste in a tube? Huh, never seen that - that sounds great.

Growing your own vegetables is definitely trial and error. For example, I quit growing squash because squash take up huge amounts of space for about 6 fruits that I could have easily walked down to the farmers' market to buy. However, celery, spinach, and onions can easily be grown in a pot, are impossible to kill, produce lots, and can go in a lot of dishes. One year the squirrels ate all my lettuce, but they have no love for spinach.  :)

The nice thing about gardening is it gives you something to do for years while you're perfecting your techniques.

That does sound like a nice thing.  :)  I like the idea of perfecting something over years - it lends a kind of rhythm and permanency or something to one's life.

As to the spinach and other veggies - we probably have other things that grow best around here. Tomatoes do terribly - potatoes, squash, and cucumbers very well indeed. And we have to deal with lots of slugs - ugh. My mom always had a garden when I was growing up, and I remember picking through slug-chewed spinach  and washing little sluglets off the leaves during dinner prep.  :)

Of course!  That's why it's so good, NZ SB.  We have terrific SB's in Western Australia too, sourced from Margaret River region, south of Perth.  However, most of the wineries are boutique and we don't see the labels in the US.

Value for money:  Try Jacob's Creek Semillon Sauvignon Blanc from Barossa Valley South Australia.  You can get it easily in the US and it is priced lower than we get it here.  Last I heard, it was still under US$5 per bottle...a very good drop.

Yeah, Jacob's Creek is always good, especially for the value.  I had a really good Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon the other day from Stonehaven, found it for $5.99 US.

Extremely hard to beat the South Australian reds, especially if you like the fruit-forward style.  The pricing story is interesting.  Because of NAFTA, Aussie wines are sold to the US through Canadian companies (fronts) thus avoiding tariffs which had killed Australian wine pricing in the US in the past.

I went to a little restaurant in my little town that I had never been to before. I ordered a BLT and french fries shaped like potato chips. The BLT was not very good, and the french fries were unsalted. My guests had persuaded me to order the fries, which came in a soup bowl as if ketchup was meant to be poured over them. Instead, I dumped the fries on my plate, poured salt in the bowl, then dipped each fry in my water before dunking it in the salt, rolling it around, then eating it. They were very good this way.

But there is usually something you can get without injera and every place I've been to with a friend of mine who can't have gluten just gives it to him on the plate with a fork. Have you considered trying without the injera?

Yeah, I wasn't a big fan of it. It had a nice kick but a pretty unimpressive flavor. I prefer most other Rogue flavors I've had.

Yep, I make it all the time. I do have a maker - a really inexpensive one in fact. However, I've never had a chance to use it (I only got it a few days before I moved and haven't opened it yet). In the summer, I manage fine without a maker. I just heat the milk to 100F and then wait for it to cool to a lukewarm temperature. I then add 2 tbsp of yoghurt to it and keep it closed preferably in a warm spot. I leave it overnight and usually have yoghurt ready in the morning. In my experience, a good starter is key to tasty yoghurt. I originally used a greek yoghurt from trader joes.. unfortunately I can't seem to recall the name right now.

You definitely should. I seem to remember that you get berries from your backyard too, right? I'd love to have homegrown berries to eat with my yoghurt!! I start with about 3 cups of milk usually (that's how much my saucepan can safely hold). Remember to heat the milk at a low temperature and in a heavy-bottomed saucepan.. so as to prevent scalding.

Not right near me, but if we go hiking around this time of year, we always find them, and they are really good. I don't think I've ever picked enough for a pie though. Thimble berries and mountain blue berries are tasty hiking treats, too.

Salad, wild mushroom risotto and a nice bottle of white wine a friend brought back from Australia.

Yum!  That sounds great worm.

I had a ham and smoked gouda panini (as best as I could make at home) and a 3 bean salad.

You can get the meat anywhere, but they have to be having the ROLLS shipped in from Philly, specifically, Amorosos.

Not entirely unrelated:  Man, I wish we had WaWa in Atlanta.

That sounds so good. This is the Bittman recipe bread? It works really well for me although I haven't made it in ages.

I had lentil soup + bread and am eating nectarines now. I feel very lazy compared to all of you.

It's not Bittman's though I do have that one. I don't have a good pot/Dutch oven, so I used a recipe that called for a cookie sheet instead. I was really happy with how it turned out.

whoa - very incorrect. fusion started in california and is a staple of one of the beauties of american cuisine -regionalism - whether it be creole, texmex/southwest, hawiian, california, pacNW, midwest, ect.  then everyone takes these myriad regional cuisines and opens up restaurants in New York!

the traditional french chefs would have a shit fit if you tossed a cream sauce over sashimi.

You are correct about American fusion of which you are speaking, but fusion in cooking was French long before it was American. This is something I have alot of experience with. Check out my favorite restaurants thread (http://www.filmspotting.net/boards/index.php?topic=6319.msg301942#msg301942).

Like I said some of the best chefs working are American, but they almost exclusively work with French cuisine as their base then add other elements like Asian, American etc.

I dont think I was clear enough. My mistake. Some of the first fusion restaurants were in America, but they were not American fusion. In fact, the earliest was French and Chinese fusion (I cant remember the name right now). Those early chefs were European as well, Wolfgang Puck being one of the most famous.

Nice work-- I should really get my aunt's sauce recipe.

Tonight I found a new Mediterranean restaurant opened up near me so I decided to check it out (even if it's not as dirt cheap as Mamoun's (http://www.yelp.com/biz/mamouns-falafel-new-york)).  Got my first shawarma ever.  I normally just go for the falafel.  It was fantastic-- well worth the price.  The veggies in the pita were the best I've had yet.  Also decided to splurge and get a lemonade and it was worth it as well.  It's my new favorite lemonade in the city.  Lemonade packed with lime slices and plenty of fresh mint.  So refreshing.

(From last night)

I just made my first non-sweet item that I'm really proud of. I've made dinners in the past, but this is the first time that I felt like I was in control of the tastes and methods. I felt like I knew what I was doing.

Anyway, it was a very simple chicken piccatta. The sauce is very, very simple: deglazed pan with white wine, butter, lemon juice, a touch of flour, salt, pepper, and some bouillon. My sweetie guided me at certain points, but I was the one saying, "Not enough taste...", "Too lemony...", "There. That's perfect. Maybe a little more taste. And some salt."

Anyway, it was awesome.

Burrito fixings (rice, beans, guacamole, cheese, sour cream, salsa, veggies, peppers, hot sauce) but no tortilla, you just put it in a bowl.

They are both bad, but for different reasons. The KFC is more likely to cause sickness, but still taste great. The Dominos ia fairly safe bet, but the pizza tastes terrible. I say take the risk and go KFC.

Hawker centers are outdoor or semi covered food courts with many stalls, but this one is nice as they let us bring wine and they actually give us glasses and no corkage fee.  Lots of good food and drinks and ends up being cheap, plus we get lots of looks from other people as you would hardly ever see anyone drink wine in these kind of places

Well, since my mother chose not to make any Thanksgiving dinner this year because she and the old man have to take care of someone.

Me and the dog had McDonald's for Thanksgiving.  Me, the 10-piece Chicken McNuggets with medium fries and a McDouble for the dog sans pickles.  All for less than $6.  That's right, the poor man's Thanksgiving dinner. 

And for the record, I think turkey is overrated!

Tonight the gf and I checked out a Cincy restaurant named Cumin.  It was tasty. Sweetbread appetizer. Herb naan on the side. I had roasted pork shoulder cauliflower and brussles sprouts gratin and she had twice braised lamb shank with minted peas and mushroom preserves. Creme brulee with roasted apples for dessert. The portions were surprisingly large for the price, definitely going back next time I'm out here.

Enjoying a glass of pinot noir and listening to Sarah McLachlan with my honey. Life is good.

Chicken cutlets breaded with panko and parmesan cheese, a salad of grape tomatoes, olive oil, garlic and basil, and sweet potato fries.

Haven't decided between chocolate martini or plain old chocolate ice cream for dessert.  Depends on whether I want to watch one more movie tonight, or two.

Did I mention I'm home alone all day and tonight?  Lovin' it!

What's the result. Also, what's a turkey tenderloin?

For tonight, probably really soon, half a pound buffalo chicken triple decker with provolone, American, Swiss, bacon, buttered toast, and an episode of Sonny With A Chance! Ideally this concoction would be made with Pepper Jack, Swiss, and con queso.

Broccoli pad thai, home made.  It turned out okay but there was a pretty low stuff+sauce to noodles ratio.  Will increase stuff/sauce amounts next time.

Homemade chocolate chip cookies for dessert.  Freezing cold temps=chilly house=excellent excuse to bake!

I make these too, but with sun-dried tomatoes added instead of the roasted peppers because husband doesn't like capsicum and I use veal because we're not eating aged beef these days..  Also I can't get sourdough so I use Italian crusty bread which is nice, but I bet the sourdough is better.  You're right...damn tasty.

Last night

Anne Burrell's mushroom risotto last night. With—

Pork with a rosemary demi glaze

Roasted Fennell

Fresh tomato salad

Helpful hint. Don't fall for Omaha Steak's deals. We have yet to have a non-dry piece of meat, even though we know the meat is cooked perfectly, still a shade of pink inside.

Question for any culinary experts out there — Does freezing a piece of meat, even carefully vacuum-sealed, necessarily make it dry? Something about the ice crystals microscopically slicing the membranes in the meat during thaw, making it more porous than fresh meat?

Making a thoughtful meal for friends makes me feel so happy and connected and satisfied with life. I want to cook for everyone! I'd like to buy the world a Coke! I resent Coke for intruding upon my brand-free happiness!

Anyway, I made chicken mole with tortillas, New Orleans rice and beans, and a side of stir-fried orange peppers and pineapple. We created margaritas with frozen limeade (the lazy and awesome way). And I left a friend to make the brownies from a mix, but she forgot the eggs. NB: eggs turn out to be a very important part of the brownie process. But we had fun trying to gnaw through the brownies while watching a few episodes of Coupling.

I hope that you all had lovely nights as well.

Um, that sounds incredible. I've never even heard of Swiss pork stew before.

I'm fixing pork chops with caramelized apples and onions, sautéed spinach, and wheat rolls.

Yelp is the new online mafia:

Quote
Extortion - Unlawful exaction of money or property through intimidation or undue exercise of authority. It may include threats of physical harm, criminal prosecution, or public exposure.

I have used the yelp site for years.  I especially like using it when I'm traveling to find out great places to go.  I read the reviews, pick through all the crappy things people are saying to either hurt a business or are obviously coming out of their inflated egos, and then make a decision to visit some place to make my trip as rewarding as possible.  For the most part, it has worked pretty well.

Now, I own a small business and get weekly calls from Yelp to try to get me to pay them for advertising.  They have also told me that if I choose to use their service and pay them a monthly fee, I will have more control over the reviews for my establishment.

I cannot name a name because he is a fellow business owner who is very reliable.  I was speaking with him about the negative reviews my new business is getting next to all the glowing ones people are leaving.  My friend said very casually, "oh, I know how to deal with that.  We had the same problem when we started.  I agreed to pay them $300/mo. and then every time there was a negative review, I would just call them and they would remove it.  I've been paying them for years and that's how I've maintained a 4.5 star rating."

Background:  I own a cupcake boutique in Philadelphia that is really making a splash in a number of ways.  There have been some very questionable reviews and practices of yelpers which has resulted in lowering our score from a 5 to a 3.5, with the mysterious algorithm taking off quite a few positive reviews from people I know have tried our cupcakes and have become fans.  We have save these under the discussions page on our fan site on facebook.

So, for all you yelpers who think that your reviews positive or negative reviews are respected by yelp, you are basically being used by Yelp as a tool for them to get money out of businesses who are trying to protect their business.  There are number of lawsuits.  I understand you clubs and meetings and friends you've developed, just know that this "free" service you use is done on the backs of businesses that have employees who have families.

For me, I can never rely upon this service again as a legitimate place to find out about a place to eat or any other service.

Vietnamese coffee is quite famous, it is so strong that it needs the sweetened condensed milk to drink.  But the food is great, always a lot of fresh veggies and are either raw or lightly cooked.  And Pho is nice for breakfast after a long night of drinking.

Octopus and mussel stew, onion, fennel, mushrooms, pasata (Italian tomato sauce), dry white wine, garlic, rosemary and a bay leaf. My mouth is watering already.

Dang, yo. Want to feed on this. Priority A+MonkeyHamRadio.

It is a very tasty recipe. Sorry it was a very tasty recipe. Your tuna steak on rice pilaf sounds lovely. Tuna with rice is not weird.

Southwestern Salmon En Croute

It's a frozen entree from Trader Joe's (my favorite grocery store), Salmon with black beans, poblano peppers, and corn, all wrapped up in puff pastry.  It's in the oven now, I have high hopes for this one.

Sounds great! Looking forward to hearing how it is.

For me, Havarti-stuffed chicken and either corn-on-the-cob or spinach sauteed with basil (I'm sure the kids will root for the former!)

It's a bit oily, but the flavors are really good.

Why don't you cut the corn off the cob and mix it in with the spinach and basil?  The best of both worlds!

Nice; I'll have to try it. It's been too long since I've been to Trader Joe's; going there is a bit of a jaunt for me, but it's always worth it!

Just had a finished a piece (with butter). Lot of flavour, very hearty. :)

Here's the recipe if anyone is interested:

2 1/2 C all purpose flour
1c wh wheat flour
4 tbsp. quick cooking oats
4 tbsp bran
2 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 3/4 C buttermilk
optional: 1 tbsp. melted butter
              1/2 tbsp. large rolled oats

In large bowl combine dry ingredients. Pour in buttermilk and mix with 2 knives to make a soft dough ( slightly sticky). Don't overmix. Roughly form into a ball and place on floured surface.Flour hands and knead lightly about 12x's. Form into 7"round x 1" thick loaf. Place on greased cookie sheet or cookie sheet with parchment paper under loaf. Score a deep cross on the top of loaf and dribble with butter and sprinkle with Lrg oats.    Bake 30 min at 400o F. Serve warm.  Freezes well.

The only change  is to form the loaf on the cookie sheet and use parchment paper.

I marinated and grilled some salmon in garlic & a cherry balsamic vinaigrette. Then, I ate it over pasta with pineapple salsa. Seems like a lot of different flavors? But it was yummy? Uh... I have $8 until Friday. I'm just hoping not to run out of food entirely.

Have you decided what to have for dinner.  You could always roast the veggies and dress them with a nice summer viniagrette.  Is that swiss chard I see? The veggies would also make a good soup with the chard. Light vegetable broth with a dollop of pesto on top.

Sorry, ses - didn't see this earlier! Your suggestions sound great - I did end up roasting them with olive oil and fresh herbs. I also made a couple of lamb chops in a herbed balsamic vinegar glaze - made for a nice flavor next to the veggies. And yes, that is Swiss chard - that I sauteed in olive oil and garlic for a few minutes as another side dish.

Never go with Pizza Hut...

Crisis averted! Found a local pizza place. Will report back when I find out how good/bad it is.

It was also attached to a liquor store. Surprisingly good food though.

local pizza can only be judged on taste, never location



mediocre room service - this (french) chardonnay is nearly flavorless.

Homemade fried rice, with prawns, vegetable tofu loaf and avocado (it is just so good at the moment). It is an odd mix (the avocado was not cooked with the rice), but it worked.

Bought this Japanese cookbook a few weeks ago.

Been making this awesome homemade teriyaki sauce. Literally the best I've ever tasted.

One problem is that it requires 1 cup of mirin and a half cup of sake every time. (This book's recipes tend to involve booze).

Here it is:

1/2 cup mirin
1/4 cup sake
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar

Heat mirin and sake in a saucepan for 5 minutes on low to medium heat. Then add soy sauce and sugar, stirring until the sugar is dissolved.

Cook over low heat for 25 minutes.

You can add grated ginger, garlic, honey (to substitute sugar, I believe), green onions, and/or chile paste to create variations.

Yields 1/2 cup sauce.

Thanks, may try it this weekend.  I don't think there is much point to substitute honey for sugar, mirin is already half sugar, what is a little more going to hurt you:)

Took me 3 tries to perfect it - the "25 minutes at low" is a bit vague.

First time, it was too watery. Second time, it was too thick after it cooled off.

It was good - definitely will make again. It did need a bit more time than the 6 hours on low though - the carrots, particularly. I turned it up to high for the last couple of hours, and they still were not quite done. I'd probably be sure to give it 8-10 hours next time.

The one on the right was (from the middle out), cheddar cheese stuffed in a zuchini, surrounded by pepperjack cheese, within a layer of sausage, wrapped in bacon.

The left one was similar but with an Italian blend of ingredients in the center (pictured).

And then slow-cooked in the smoker for three and a half hours.

I was skeptical, but that Italian one is probably the best thing I've eaten this year.

The one on the right was (from the middle out), cheddar cheese stuffed in a zuchini, surrounded by pepperjack cheese, within a layer of sausage, wrapped in bacon.


hmm, Bacon, is there anything it can't do

My wife's friend works in a supermarket as a cashier, and every so often, someone coming through her line purchases something that piques her interest. She tries it out and if she likes it, she'll buy one for my wife and tells her to see what kind of recipe I can come up with for it. This week it was these...

http://alfrescoallnatural.com/FlavorDetails.aspx?ID=9678&nav=mp3 (http://alfrescoallnatural.com/FlavorDetails.aspx?ID=9678&nav=mp3)

If your supermarket carries these, I highly recommend buying them. They were very tender and had a wonderful balance between the garlic, asiago cheese, fresh basil and sundried tomatoes. I simmered them in a chunky, slightly sweet pomodoro sauce with added sauteed garlic and a bit more fresh basil over rigatoni pasta. Had a fruity Italian wine with it and it made it feel like summer.

Might get a picture of this up, but there was some french toast leftover from breakfast (I didn't eat any then) so I subbed it in instead of the normal wheat toast on egg sandwich with cream cheese, with a little syrup as well. The combination of the syrup and tabasco (that I put in with the eggs when I fry them) was quite wonderful.

Homemade pizza is bloody gorgeous. It is all we use the bread maker my mum gave us, for.

In my upwardly mobile days we used to have a pasta maker. Again homemade fresh pasta is so completely different from dry or packet fresh pasta as to be another thing. Any restaurant that makes a point of advertising that its make its own pasta is onto a winner. A lasagne with homemade sheets is unworldly good.

The pizza shops where I live now are atrocious, so I pretty much make homemade all the time.

It's sad because my old hometown where I grew up had the best pizza shops if you wanted pan, hand tossed or California thin crust pizza. I had three separate shops that I would frequent depending on what kind I wanted.

It's that time of year again, when the weather gets cold enough to break out the GraniteWare roaster, and make a gigantic batch of my infamous AppleJack Baked Beans. Basically, it's a doctored version of Boston Baked Beans, but instead of cooking the beans in water, you use a half gallon of Apple Cider and add Apple Butter along side the molasses and brown sugar. I've been making these for about 10 years now, and I've finally got the recipe perfect. When finished, I have enough to freeze, and eat over the course of the following year.

Baked Stuffed Italian style Acorn Squash.

I've been working this recipe out in my head for about two weeks, and finally decided it was time to give it a try. The stuffing smelled really good when I was putting it on the acorn squash. I hope it tastes as good as it smelled.

I like to do a cornbread stuffing with Italian sausage and veggies when I stuff acorn squash

Tonight was the first time I've ever eaten acorn squash, and I really liked it. Now, I've got all kinds of ideas sprouting in my head about what to do with it next time.

This time, I took an onion, 6 cloves of garlic and sauteed it in olive oil. Added a 14.5 oz. can of low sodium chicken broth and a heaping tablespoon of spaghetti sauce and brought it to a boil. Added 1 cup of white rice and cooked until all broth absorbed.

Then I took slightly more than a half pound of Sweet Italian sausage (which I removed from its casing), 1 egg, and another heaping tablespoon of spaghetti sauce and mixed thoroughly. I then tossed in the cooled rice, along with a 1/4 cup each of shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese. Seasoned with a little salt and pepper and finally added some fresh basil oil that I made at the end of the growing season this year. Mixed it all together well and stuffed the squash halves to rather heaping portions. Sprinkled some fresh bread crumbs on top, and then drizzled with a combination of butter and olive oil. Baked at 350 degrees tented with foil for 90 minutes and then again uncovered for another 45 minutes. I was pleasantly surprised at the overall finished dish. I'll definitely be making it again.

We need pictures man. Sounds lovely but I don't even know what an acorn squash looks like (squash is what you mix with water to make a kids' fruit drink here). O

On that theme, this is what the Christmas Cake looks like on 12th Night. (The discarded Xmas figures are a bathetic touch, I like).

need a few good suggestions for a dinner I will cook on Saturday for about 10 or 12 people and want to try something new since I probably have burned them out on my traditional stand-bys.

One I have decided is mussels in white one sauce.  But I probably will also grill but wondering if anybody as something unusual or different that can be grilled?  So far I think of Portobello mushrooms and asparagus.  Perhaps this looks nice and easy:

http://www.vietworldkitchen.com/blog/2009/04/vietnamese-restaurantstyle-grilled-lemongrass-pork-thit-heo-nuong-xa.html

That recipe looks good, but I'd be wary to use that much fish sauce in the marinade. Nuoc Mam is very salty and very pungent, and is an acquired taste. I love it, but my wife gets freaked out if I use a lot of it. And that amount seems rather potent in proportion to the other ingredients. If you like it as much as I do, then maybe it won't be a problem. But if you're cooking for novices in far east cuisine, I'd cut it back to at least half.

Also, if you want to save yourself a lot of prep work, just use a whole pork tenderloin instead of pork shoulder cutlets. I think it would work out great as long as you marinate it at least 24 hours. But if you choose to do this, then disregard my earlier statement. The fish sauce won't penetrate as far in a whole tenderloin as it would in cutlets.

Something else I just noticed on that page. The author suggests that if you can't find lemongrass to substitute Chinese Five Spice powder. I don't know what the author is smoking, but Five spice is no way a substitute for lemongrass. Two completely different tastes. If you can't find lemongrass, you can use Kaffir lime leaves as they are close to lemongrass in taste and pungency, but do not use five spice powder. If you can't find either, then skip this recipe.

I didn't read it too close, I would have no idea why they would think five spice powder is a proper substitute.  I looked at the pic and it looked good:)  I also looked at a few other lemon-grass pork dishes and they looked similar so I may choose another.

Lemongrass and other Asian ingredients are not an issue, I live in Asia:)

Do you ever use freeze-dried cilantro instead of fresh? Unless it's summer or unless I plan ahead, I don't usually have fresh cilantro on hand.  Used some freeze-dried last night (for a cucumber-lemon relish - to go with a chicken tikki masala) and it was really good.

I've never used freeze dried, but I have used frozen (little cubes) and it is okay in cooked sauces or dishes, but I didn't like it how I would normally use cilantro, to kind of freshen up a dish.

Title: Re: What's for Dinner... and did you make enough for me
Post by: Antares on February 11, 2012, 01:50:42 PM
1 35oz. can San Marzano tomatoes
1 14 oz. can Diced Tomatoes
1 14 oz. can low sodium beef broth
1 14 oz. can low sodium chicken broth
1 small onion
1 stalk celery
1 carrot
1 small green pepper
3 cloves garlic
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. dried Oregano
2 bay leaves
4 - 6 fresh basil leaves
2 tsp. sugar
3 - 4 sun dried tomatoes
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil

Mince the carrot, celery, green pepper and onion and saute in butter and olive oil. When the onion is translucent, add the garlic which you should run through a garlic press. Just as the garlic starts to turn blond, add the two cans of low sodium broth. Cover and gently boil for 20 minutes. Then add remaining ingredients and return to a gentle boil, covered for another 30 minutes. At the end of that time, remove the bay leaves and with an immersible hand blender, puree the soup.

You could also add, after you puree the soup, 1/2 cup heavy cream to enrich the soup if you like. Just make sure you bring it up to temperature so it doesn't break. I'm not big on cream in tomato soups, but a lot of people like the added body and consistency.

Made steak for 4 last night and modified technique a little. It worked out great.

1) buy 2" thick ribeye not trimmed
2) heavily season with kosher salt
3) let sit out for 1.5 hours (a lot of water will be drawn out)
4) rinse steaks and totally dry
5) bring cast iron pan to medium
6) render fat from edges for about 4min per steak
7) cook each side for 2 min
8) take off and rest for 10 min
9) clean pan
10) bring to med-high
11) add liberal amount of butter
12) sear each side for 60 sec continually basting with butter
13) rest for 6 min

Had stuffed potatoes and roasted asparagus with them.

Cajun Shrimp, Rice pilaf and steamed Asparagus.

Asparagus was on sale for .99 cents a pound and I couldn't pass it up.

I found a 7 ingredient Cajun spice recipe twenty years ago, and have spent the last two decades tweaking it. It now has 14 spices in it, and from what my friends have told me, is the best Cajun spice mix around.

If anyone would like the recipe, let me know.

If you find half off sushi, skip it.

Also, feel free to pass on the recipe if it is not a secret.  I make my own cajun shrimp at times but do it pretty much from a magazine with a few variations (more beer...) so would always try yours if I can find the correct ingredients.

When cooking with this mix, coat generously whatever you are making (Shrimp, Chicken or Beef Tenderloin), and pan fry in a heavy black iron skillet with fortified butter.

That Cajun Mix isn't 100 miles from what I would put into a Curry Mix.

You put the cloves into a pan with Cardomum seeds and Bayleaves. Sweetens the onion. Cardomum seeds when you bite into them are an unworldly pleasure, just feels wrong but is so good.

Then other spices would be Cumin, Turmeric, Garam Masala. Extras then are Tamarind Paste, Ginger & Cocunut block.


The rest would be very similar. EXCEPT 2 TBSP of Cayenne! Oh my god!

I've always wanted to try cooking with Cardamom, but have never had the chance. I'll have to rectify that soon. That Curry mix sounds good, but my wife won't eat Curry anything. Shame, because I like it.

So I've had this idea mulling around my head for a couple of weeks and decided to give it a try. I wanted to make a meatloaf with ground Turkey, but I wanted it to taste like you were eating turkey dinner at Thanksgiving. I took two pounds of ground Turkey, added 1/4 cup of my concentrated Turkey gravy, 1/2 cup crumbled Corn Bread, 1/4 lb. uncooked Sage Sausage, 1 chopped Onion, Black Pepper, Rosemary, Thyme and Sage, 2 Eggs and 1/4 cup Dried Cranberries and mixed it all together. Baked it, and served it with a warm, sweet and slightly spicy Cranberry, Pomegranate and Mango compote on top.

There is nothing as rewarding in cooking as when you have an idea for a recipe in your head, and it comes exactly as you thought it would. This was absolutely delicious! My wife loved it, and she's usually not into sweet sauces, but the right amount of spiciness in the compote sealed the deal for her. I thought she was going to lick the plate. ;)

The classic Henderson's Relish, but in the colours of Sheffield Wednesday.

Just look at Antares's stove. You know he's pro. :)

When I was having my house built back in 2001, I did a ridiculous amount of research on professional stoves and ovens for the residential home. I wound up having to compromise on what I truly wanted, which was a 6 burner range top and two wall ovens, because of space limitations and budget worries. But then one day, a salesman showed me a Thermador 4 burner stove with a two burner intermittent firing system and a convection oven. I was sold and I have to admit that it was the best thing I've ever purchased. When friends come over and I'm cooking something, they stare at the burners as they intermittently fire what I'm cooking. Ever since I've purchased this, not once have I burnt a simmering sauce or a rice dish. It is the most functional way to cook and I'm surprised more companies don't offer that option.

Post by: Antares on July 13, 2012, 08:56:52 PM
I've never heard of an intermittent firing system stove before.

You have settings on the dial for the two left burners which allow you to fire the gas for 8 seconds out of every minute, with increasing intervals up to 40 seconds of every minute, depending on how long you want it to heat. It comes in handy when I want to slow simmer a pasta sauce and I don't want to stay home all day to watch it. That's when I use the lowest setting, I set it, and come back later and the sauce isn't burned, but is completely cooked. Before I bought this stove, I use to use Crock pots for long, slow simmering meals, but for the last 10 years, that Crock pot has been gathering dust in my cellar.  ;) But I mainly like it because if I've forgotten an ingredient, I can switch it on, and pop on down to the market and not have to stop cooking.

It does kind of look like cornstarch and water, but it isn't, it's rendered pork fat, which I almost exclusively cook with. When I first started living with my wife twenty years ago, she was completely aghast at the various rendered oils that I started keeping in the refrigerator. At any given time, there would be bacon fat, rendered leaf lard, rendered pancetta and rendered salt pork, plus a jar of achiotina (lard with annato seeds) for latino dishes.

My wife has never been big on meat items, especially pork products, but with time, I've taught her the wonders of swine. She now asks me to make dishes with Italian sausage, Spanish chorizo and Portuguese linguica & chourico. I'm not a religious person, in fact I'm an atheist, but if there is a God, then I thank him for creating the pig.

I was going to guess schmaltz.  Have you ever heard of/used that? It's rendered chicken fat, and I've never dared to try it, but my New York Cookbook (by Molly O'Neill) champions it for all kinds of uses, including what you describe but also for "spreading on a slice of fresh rye bread with a sprinkling of salt."  :o

I never knew there was a name for it, but yes, I do use chicken fat and also turkey, duck and goose fat too. When I buy either whole chickens or parts and I'm going to make chicken salad, I skin the chicken and trim as much of the fat off as I can. I then put the skins and trimmings on sizzle platters and broil them on the lowest level of my broiler. As the fat starts to render out of the skin, I drain it into jars and when the skins are golden brown on both sides, and there's no more fat left, I let the cooked skins cool and give my dogs a treat. They go absolutely crazy over it.

I've never had it on bread, but it's one of my secret ingredients in my chicken salad, and everyone who's tasted it, can't figure out why it tastes so good. When I tell them, they give me a strange look, but then accept it because it is so flavorful. Another use is when you want to make an amazing chicken gravy. Instead of making a roux with butter, you use the chicken fat instead, and it adds much richer flavor to the gravy. I do the same thing with my turkey gravy at Thanksgiving. It's become so popular with my family and friends, that I make a quadruple batch and give everyone a pint to take home with them.

But the king of fowl fats is goose and duck. One dish my grandmother use to make and was an absolute favorite of mine was Duck Rillettes (http://thepauperedchef.com/2008/09/duck-rillettes.html). It's made from slow simmered duck meat and duck fat and eaten cold on toast. I would take this to school and the other kids would look at me like I was completely insane. But it was soooooooooooooo good! I could eat duck almost every night and probably never get sick of it.

It's nice to hear from someone who's actually tried it and uses it regularly, especially someone like you, chef that you are. You are talking me into the idea with all your talk of sizzles and richness and flavor! 

I rarely have/cook goose and duck, and it sounds so delicious the way you describe it; it's kind of hard to find in grocery stores here, isn't it? I don't know that I've ever seen it where I shop.

One glaring weakness in my culinary experience is desserts. When I was younger, I had an arrogance that felt that if you were still hungry after my main course, I had failed. Thus, I never really learned or focused on this part of cooking. In the last few years, I have tried to right this wrong, and have been dabbling every so often in the pastry arts. This week, sweet cherries have been on sale here, so I decided to give a fresh cherry pie a go. So far, so good, it looks like it's coming out OK.

Here's the result. Don't know what it tastes like yet, it needs to cool for a while. I can't wait to serve this with some vanilla ice cream.

Decided to utilize some of the herbs in our garden today for dinner. Made Balsamic, Garlic and Herb (Rosemary, Sage, Lemon Thyme & Basil) Chicken Breasts, served with Zucchini (Also from the garden) sauteed in my glorious Garlic butter. I tried to get my wife to plant garlic last autumn, but she never got around to it. This is an oversight that won't happen this fall.

We're slicing into the cherry pie in about 45 minutes for dessert, unfortunately, I never got around to making the vanilla ice cream.  :(

So when I made the dish listed in the previous post, my wife blurted out that mushrooms would have made it even better. I then said to her, to bad you're not into Marsala wine sauce, to which she informed me that it was one of her favorite things to order in Italian restaurants. Which is funny, because I can't really recall her ordering anything with that sauce in the twenty plus years I've been with her. But that being said, it infused me with such fervor that the next day I went to a liquor store and purchased a bottle of Florio Sweet Marsala wine.

So tonight we had Chicken with Mushroom Marsala sauce and the same vegetable as listed above. But what also made this meal fantastic was a bottle of wine, that twenty years ago in my wine snob days, I'd have never touched. About 10 years ago, my wife came home with this New York varietal (http://www.bullyhill.com/wines/downloads/Bottles/White/GoatWhite.jpg), which I looked upon with scorn. But after tasting it, I was hooked. It's a table wine with Riesling sweetness, but also the crispness of a Sauvignon blanc. My old wine snob friends would look upon me with derision for drinking such a pedestrian wine, but screw them, it tastes great! If you can find it, I highly recommend it, and what puts the cherry on top is that it sells for about $9 a bottle. They also make a wonderful, fruit forward table red (http://www.bullyhill.com/wines/downloads/Bottles/Red/LoveMyGoat.jpg) that it it not only fantastic to drink, but cooks well too.

Yes, they plumped up quite nicely and tasted amazing. This pie is not going to be around for very long. It's life expectancy is probably about 2 1/2 days. Unfortunately, my wife doesn't care for rum, so I'm going to be tackling this badboy solo...Oh woe is me!  ;)

I had planned on straining out the residual rum from the soaking jar and making a drink with it, but what little was left had such a wonderful raisin taste to it, that I mixed some cornstarch to it and added it to the filling.

One scoop of Ben & Jerry's Vanilla made it taste like heaven.

We've had sunny, beautifully warm days this September, but the plums are ripe on my tree and the mornings have that crisp bite in the air, so it's an autumnal dinner tonight:

Smoky Beef Stew with Blue Cheese and Chives (http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/smoky-beef-stew-with-blue-cheese-chives-10000001704045/print/), a freshly baked loaf of crusty bread, and  Plum Oatmeal Crisp (http://www.marthastewart.com/313232/plum-oatmeal-crisp) to follow.


(Incidentally, anyone have another good recipe that calls for blue cheese? Friend of mine brought me a gorgeous pound of it yesterday - leftover from a gathering associated with the co-op of local organic dairy farmers she's a part of. I made a potato, onion, thyme, blue cheese fritatta last night, and was thinking of doing a variation on this Creamy Stilton Soup (http://www.savourytable.com/2012/04/more-from-midlands-long-clawson-dairys.html) tomorrow, but beyond sprinkling blue cheese on my green salads, my recipe box doesn't have too much in the way of blue cheese.)

It's also really good sprinkled (with minced garlic) over pan-fried zucchini and fire-roasted tomatoes.

It's that time of year again, when the weather gets cold enough to break out the GraniteWare roaster, and make a gigantic batch of my infamous AppleJack Baked Beans. Basically, it's a doctored version of Boston Baked Beans, but instead of cooking the beans in water, you use a half gallon of Apple Cider and add Apple Butter along side the molasses and brown sugar. I've been making these for about 10 years now, and I've finally got the recipe perfect. When finished, I have enough to freeze, and eat over the course of the following year.

Making them a little bit earlier this year as last year's batch ran out last week. It's been cooking for a little over three hours now and the house is starting to get that autumn cooking smell.

What a ridiculous amount of prep work to make this. It was really, really good, but I doubt I'll ever go through another 3 hours of preparation again. Thank God my wife was at work while I was making it, the kitchen was a disaster area. I just finished prepping it and getting it into the oven about 15 minutes before she got home.

Saltimbocca (or saltinbocca, either way is ok apparently) means "jumps in the mouth"- that's such a great name for a dish. Anything against veal? It's made with veal usually, but it makes people squeamish.

We had a similar alternative in a restaurant Pork Ossobuco, gorgeous. Usually ossobuco is a veal dish as well. Memorable meal, I had this German pasta called spätzle with venison for a starter. The thought of the whole thing is making my mouth water right now.

But perhaps that will change. Let us assume I'll be eating here at least two (hopefully three) times. Here is a menu (http://tonyboloneys.com/menu) of this fine establishment. Which three sandwiches should FLY eat? Let me know and I'll report back how great it was. I'll also look for the picture of the ten pound pizza my friends and I ate at this place before.

EDIT: FLY only messes with hot sandwiches.

Not really  big fan of sandwiches and never with onion or any kind of Mayo sauce.  But if I was dragged there 3 times, I would probably go:

Shitfaced: beerbattered bird with stout honey bbq sauce, melted mozz and chedder
Meathead Parm
and maybe the PotPie sandwich

Thanks all, still taking suggestions in to account until Friday so keep them coming!

Man, the Rusty (La)Bouff wasn't even on my radar (aside from the highlighted Shia connections I make each time I see the name), but I'll potentially give it some priority. The Shitfaced is really good, the Shitfaced pizza was the second layer of the ten pound pizza when we all had it and it's potentially even better there. My one friend loves the potato face, I've never had that.

I think I've only had:

Cheesesteak Ole (best cheesesteak hands down. Take that, Philly!)
Shitfaced
Pitney's Fire (so much meat)
Ducktown Melt (toasted garlic bread makes it)
Po' Doc Carver (good, I like the chipotle sauce)
*Crabby Chicken Killer (* - special limited time sandwich thing that had lump crab, old bay, grilled chicken, and homemade mozzarella. Any sandwich with the homemade mozz tends to be great because he does make really incredible mozzarella cheese)

My one friend likes the Heart Stopper and has said the Tio Bastardo and Pot Pie are excellent and newer menu additions. The time I had that Crab/chicken sandwich my one friend got the Chickenhead Parm but the guy who owns the place was there and cooking so he switched around some ingredients and said he was using his grandmother's recipe. Saw a friend who got the regular one and, while he said it was good, the one my other buddy had that night was pretty incredible and cheesy and stuff because I had some of that.

I think the current special sandwich (maybe, if it's still there, was posted to Facebook about a week ago) is Grilled Thai Chicken, coconut (yuck) curry BBQ sauce, and sauteed spinach.

Love this place.

Must visit Atlantic City...

It's a pretty shitty city as a whole, and Vegas is way better for casinos (and clubs, if that's your scene) from what I hear, but going to Tony Boloney's makes each trip more than worth the about 40-50 minute drive for me if we're all going down for a weekend. I wouldn't suggest making a trip around it though, unless you're just going to Philly to take in that city/those sights or something for the trip and take a day drive to AC.

I have returned. Only ended up getting there once, and it was at noon (which, given when we went to sleep and woke up was basically breakfast). As such, I got the Rise & Die since I remembered iKeith! said it had a cool name. Which it does. It was also fantastic. A bunch of scrambled eggs, but also a ton (ten different kinds) of meat and a load of cheese. We also split Boardwalk Fries (six cheeses and bacon), Shitfaced Fries (honey bbq and cheese), and Ole Fries (cheese and ole sauce, I think) between 8 of us. It was fantastic.

I only spent like $50 all weekend between food and gas, so that was okay. Didn't win or lose at the casinos.

Beautiful Antares!

How easy is it to find Goya Sazon con and Azafran Pimenta Moida? Does the rice use similar seasonings?


Oh, and your recipe! You're famous. :)

Title: Re: What's for Dinner... and did you make enough for me
Post by: Antares on February 21, 2013, 08:11:53 PM
The Goya Sazon con Azafran can usually be found in most supermarkets in the ethnic aisle. It's a small boz that looks like this...

(http://pics.mexgrocer.com/images/goya-3784.jpg)

If your market doesn't carry it, you can get it online...

http://www.latinmerchant.com/productdetail.asp?ProductID=SCM0068 (http://www.latinmerchant.com/productdetail.asp?ProductID=SCM0068)

If you wind up buying it online, then also get a box of this too...

(http://www.latinmerchant.com/images/product/1SCM%20(33).jpg)

http://www.latinmerchant.com/productdetail.asp?ProductID=SCM0067 (http://www.latinmerchant.com/productdetail.asp?ProductID=SCM0067)

The con Azafran simulates the flavor of Saffron, while the Coriander and Tomato packet is more robust and adds an amazing flavor to anything you add it to.

The Pimenta Moida, which I recommend very highly, can be purchased online...

http://www.famousfoods.com/anhotchpe16o.html (http://www.famousfoods.com/anhotchpe16o.html)

I recommend getting the six jar deal, because once you've cooked with this stuff, you'll use it in almost everything. One of my favorite ways to use it is to add a teaspoon to scrambled eggs just before I start to cook them. I'd say that I use it in probably 75% of the things I make, it adds such a unique taste and bite.

The rice is very similar to the recipe I gave you earlier in this thread. Instead of the Sofrito and Smoked Paprika, you use the Pimenta Moida and instead of chorizo, you use Portuguese Chourico...

(http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/famousfoods-store_2251_55548984)

http://www.famousfoods.com/f002.html (http://www.famousfoods.com/f002.html)

If you wind up ordering from Famous Foods, then also pick up a box of this...

(http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/famousfoods-store_2250_6163799.jpg)

This is a staple in Southern New England cooking. If you doctor it up, it makes Chow Mein that's better than a restaurant. Here's a true story. In June of 2009, the company that makes this had a fire at their cooking plant, and the place was gutted. They were determined to rebuild, but they predicted that it would be at least 9 months to a year until they reopened. People in the area ran to their local markets and bought up every single box they could lay their hands on. It wound up being close to 15 months before they reopened and when they did, for the first three months, they couldn't keep up with the demand. People had missed it so much, that as soon as it hit the shelves, it would be grabbed up quickly.

How fun! And that chow mein story is very telling of how popular it is in that region. I've never seen it before. I'll start with my grocery store and see what I can find, then go from there. Thanks for compiling all of that.

 I have spent a large part of my professional career studying bison hunting because bison were the primary food source for much of prehistory in my area. I am not however a hunter.

Nonetheless, I recently got the chance to kill and butcher a bison including field dressing, butchering and processing the animal.

Here are some photos of the kill and butchering. There is one kind of gory image. Mods please feel free to remove if you feel it is too much.

Immediately after the shot.

about to remove the stomach and organs.
(http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f363/clovis8/033.jpg)


We did all this in -25 Celsius (-13 for my American friends). It was so cold the First Nations people we were suppose to meet that morning texted me that "only white men stupid enough to hunt in this weather!" :)

We took it back to a friends cabin and hung it for 10 days then cut it down and butchered it into roasts, steaks, ground meat and jerky.

Total time:

kill and field dressing about 6 hours
butcher about 5 hours
sausage and jerky making about 7 hours

today I cooked my first steak. I used two small tenderloins. You can tell I butchered them as they are not nice and round!

(http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f363/clovis8/017.jpg)

I dressed them with bacon, some oil, garlic, some herbs and salt and pepper.

It was pretty amazing. Even did some of the butchering with stone tools. It gave me serious appreciation for the skills of First Nations people.

I have had many chances to eat buffalo? bison? (don't know which it was), but I didn't choose it.  My husband had the burger and said it was immensely flavorful, but that could have been how it was prepared, not the meat.  I'll try it the next time I'm in Denver.

Technically there are no buffalo in the Americas. They are all bison. Europeans just brought the term buffalo and applied it to similar animals here.

I got out of work early today and the weather was nice, so I went for a walk by the river. Suddenly, I smelled what wikipedia tells me is known in English as "Allium ursinum – (...) ramsons, buckrams, wild garlic, broad-leaved garlic, wood garlic, bear leek or bear's garlic".

(Aside: native to Europe and Asia? Please tell me, American friends, that you know and have tried this divine plant!)

So I picked a sizable bunch, and 15 minutes later I was home, put the pasta pot on the stove, and made myself the yummiest pesto ever. No leftovers.

I'll go back tomorrow to pick more and make more pesto, mix some into butter and to freeze some... Delighted to have found that patch in the middle of town only a 10 minutes' walk from my house!

So I had a couple Braeburn apples, which as it turns out are crap for eating plain. Decided to make a crisp. Don't have butter or plain sugar. Used honey and olive oil with the flour for the crisp part. This should be interesting. I figure you can't totally ruin baked apples covered in sweet and cinnamon.

Right, yeah, that was the first time I saw it in a movie. Heard about it on the Bombcast before that years ago. Brought it up to my friends and they said it sounded gross and crazy, I imagine some people have to eat it that way, right? And for some reason (it tastes good would be their reason, but I want to know the food logic behind what makes it taste good).

Cooked a nice bone in Prime Rib.

Covered it in a paste of olive oil, garlic, kosher salt and pepper. Let sit for 1 hour on counter.

Roasted in oven at 200 degrees, with internal thermometer, until it reached 122. Took it out for 10 min while BBQ heated to 600 degrees. Seared each side for about 1:30. Tented and let site for 20 minutes before cutting. Turned out great imo.

That looks good, Clovis.

I was wondering what happened to Basil, just assumed he was waiting for Behind The Candelabra to finally get on top of that Soderbergh retrospective  :P

That looks good too, oad.

I dehydrated 7 baseball-sized onions, ground them into powder, and it got a half a cup of tasty seasoning out of it.

It's strange stuff. If I let it rest for a just a minute the whole thing turns into a big clump in the jar... but if I shake it hard it breaks right up. It's not like it's not dry... it's like cinnamon.

It's very good though. Sprinkle liberally over a frozen pork loin, bake for 30 min, nom. Two ingredients is my kind of recipe. :)

My girlfriend has made some delicious cake and some delicious pasta, and she's been encouraging me to try cooking.  Now, I've never cooked anything more complicated than an omelet, but tonight I decided to give it a shot.

We all know Olive Garden is mediocre at best, but somehow they have one magically tasty item on their menu: zuppa toscana.  It's a creamy, spicy soup with sausage, kale and potato.  I found a copycat recipe on the web and gave it my best.

Mistakes made:

1) Too much cream.  Or not enough water, I suppose, but adding too much more water would screw up the broth/ingredients ratio.  I think I got my measurements slightly off, but it was definitely creamier than it should have been.

2) I used hot sausage instead of mild sausage.  I blame this on a commenter who recommended it.  The soup is WAY too friggin hot.  Better to use mild sausage and control the heat with red pepper flakes.

3) Didn't chop up my sausage or my kale enough.  The big chunks made it harder to eat.


Other than that, I'm pretty happy with it.  The flavor profile tastes right, just too hot and a little too creamy.  It's still yummy, and quite a satisfying sense of accomplishment.  And I have a healthy amount of leftovers because I didn't realize how much the recipe would make.  Did I make enough for you?  Oh yeah.

Yeah apart from that sweet sauce, I could have put this in the fitness thread. Since my partner had her stroke, we've completely changed how we eat according to the guidelines. Loads of fruit, salad, vegetables, fish. Possibly the nicest thing we have is the simplest; a piece of fish on a bed of tomatoes, leeks, courgettes, peppers, anchovies for taste in some white wine which steams the fish. Absolutely gorgeous. We had swordfish cooked this way; like unlocking your tastebuds.

I decided to meld two Italian recipes that I like, Cod Al forno & Puttanesca sauce and here's the result...

The sauce cooking (Tomatoes, Clam broth, Shrimp broth, Capers, Black & Green Olives, Sweet Italian Green Peppers, Mushrooms, Onions, Anchovies, Roasted Garlic (Two Heads), Balsamic Vinegar, Molasses, Red Wine, Hot Pepper Flakes, EVOO, Fresh Basil and Black Pepper.

(http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/9337/s7pc.jpg)

Add the cod and baked in an iron skillet...

Accompanied with a Riesling, fresh Garden Salad and steamed Asparagus.

(http://img39.imageshack.us/img39/2274/bkko.jpg)

This came out fantastic, and I had plenty of sauce left over to freeze 6 additional portions. The best part was that almost all of the roasted garlic cloves stayed intact and every few bites, you'd get this explosion of Roasted Garlic bliss in your mouth.

Which reminds me, our neighbour (dodgy bloke) once gave us a rabbit curry with the buckshot still in it for added authenticity de la compagne. Buckshot adds nothing to the taste (cooking suggestion).

While up in the Salt Lake City area today, I stopped at the #1 restaurant according to Tripadvisor, Lone Star Taqueria. As I looked at the menu marked on a chalkboard and the specialty items on paper sacks tacked to the wall, and out over the porch with it's rusty mismatched chairs, and at my pie tin lined with tinfoil, I couldn't help think that the high end restaurants must be livid. This hole in the wall is taking away their thunder?! The fun part is that the #2 restaurant may have menus, but it's nearly the same kind of dive. Really good food - price and nice surroundings = very popular.

Hello Filmspotters!
in the last couple of weeks I have not had much time for films nor posting, but today I had time to prepare Neapolitan ¨graffe¨ - it should sound like the name of a famous German female tennis player - it is one of the many variations of the ¨zeppola¨ - who could be familiar to those of you who have Italian-American friends.
It has eggs, wheat flour, potatoes, sugar, butter, sweet liquor - it should be Strega, today it was cherry brandy - yeast, a grated lemon rind, after deep frying they go into a bowl with sugar and cinnamon.
They have been a huge success with my kids and it has been quite a satisfaction for me because they are born and grown up here in Northern Italy so they are unfamiliar with most of the Southern cooking.

It turned out pretty well.  There are so many apples that the cake on the inside is kind of custardy, more like a pie, but it has a nice crisp cinnamon-sugar topping.  It's really easy to make, the hardest part is peeling all the apples.

Since giving up coffee up about eight/nine years ago, I'm an exclusive tea drinker. Twinings have a nice range of teas, but I'm mostly an English Breakfast or Everyday Tea, be that Twinings or Yorkshire Tea. I can easily drink about ten to twelve cups a day.

Close to every day.  My parents are British so I grew up with the English style tea when I was young.  Now I usually have 1 or 2 cups of coffee (black, no sugar) a day and 2 or 3 cups of Chinese tea a day.  I'd like to drop the coffee... but.. it is at least not what it use to be like

Yorkshire Tea.

This is what I drink, I love it. I also have become very addicted to Jasmine Dragon Pearls.

I can easily drink about ten to twelve cups a day.

I'd have a stroke if I drank that much.

I'd like to drop the coffee... but.. it is at least not what it use to be like

One of the side effects of my blood pressure meds is acid reflux, and I found that coffee made it worse, so I tried switching to tea and the problem is far less troubling.

This is my cupboard right now.

I don't really have a "go-to" tea, so I end up buying something different every time I'm out, or at least a different brand. One or two of those boxes have been in my cupboard for years though. We all do that right? Bury a tea behind other teas and just never drink it? For me it's that red box.

I tend to stay away from the highly caffinated stuff because I'll drink a pot at a time and that much caffine can make my heart race.

My current favourite is, conveniently, the cheapest thing at the store for some reason. It's those three boxes of Takaokaya green tea. That's the best green tea I've ever had, and I've had a few. It wouldn't surprise me if you told me Takaokaya is the Folgers of green tea though. I'm no connoisseur.

One of the big differences I've noticed since dropping the coffee is less/or no headaches, starting at a computer screen all day doesn't help and sleeping easier at night, all that caffeine doesn't help. I just find tea a more refreshing drink.

My story is similar to Monty's, I dropped coffee in favor of tea about two years ago, mainly for health reasons I suppose. Earl Grey in the mornings and the herbal in the evenings. I also like fruity tea but only occasionally.

This is my cupboard right now.

I don't really have a "go-to" tea, so I end up buying something different every time I'm out, or at least a different brand. One or two of those boxes have been in my cupboard for years though. We all do that right? Bury a tea behind other teas and just never drink it? For me it's that red box.

I tend to stay away from the highly caffinated stuff because I'll drink a pot at a time and that much caffine can make my heart race.

My current favourite is, conveniently, the cheapest thing at the store for some reason. It's those three boxes of Takaokaya green tea. That's the best green tea I've ever had, and I've had a few. It wouldn't surprise me if you told me Takaokaya is the Folgers of green tea though. I'm no connoisseur.

I have something similar, but instead of tea, I have single malt whiskeys.

btw the look you get from the lady of the house if you do something like make a tea collection is a mix of sympathy, fear and pity.

I can't stand tea. Bad incident as a small boy. Too many swallowed tea leaves (my grandad made an epically bad cup of cha)

But the southern geezer's still cooler, even at twice his age. Noel's taking style lessons (see what I did there?)

Yeah I'm the Latte type, but I'm not really English at all. London's it's own world.

Really, I have a similar problem with red wine, so it might be the tannin taste that I don't like. However, I am working EXTREMELY hard to cure myself of the wine issue, by practice, so maybe tea will be next.

Went to a new restaurant in town called Vinyl Taco. Basically it is a hip taco bar that plays actual records. Well, at least that is the appearance, it sounded like it might just be iTunes playing stuff that is era appropriate.

Definitely a good look to the place, and as you can see here, the food presentation is top notch:

(http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n598/Bondo112/IMG_0009.jpg)

Except for the chips, the food was nothing to write home about. The Mexican beers I had were good but overpriced. Not gonna go into my regular rotation.

Bondo, for the uninitiated could you tell me what you've ordered there? the one on the right looks particularly interesting. I'm not sure if I've said this before, but I'm not really a fan of these fast foods places or whatever you want to call them. I think I've been in places like Wimpy's MacDonalds, KFC's etc less than ten time in my entire life!

On the left is a more standard chicken taco with cilantro, pico, cheese and sour cream. On the right is a fish taco...I'm forgetting what all it had, looks like guac and I have no idea what the black bits are but the reddish stuff is sriracha marinated cabbage. This isn't fast food exactly, though it is from the spirit of a taco truck type fast food. It is an excuse for a bar and the prices suggest they know where they are going to get their money.

Prosciutto, a baguette and Wensleydale Cheese made all the difference! I ran out of time at the store to look for pickled onions, but if you look really closely you can see pickled ginger with the sushi. :)

Made these sandwich wraps yesterday and thought they came out pretty well overall, considering this was my first attempt. I overstuffed them though, so they wouldn't close at the ends. I put pesto in those which worked quite well but I'm looking for more variety in the sauce department. Suggestions?

Sorry is there cheese in the sandwiches? We have Branston's Pickle here that goes well with ham or cheese. If it's mainly salad/ lettuce I'd go with Caesar Salad Dressing or even dip it in humous........or all three. :o  I thought that was what sauerkraut was for.

Tequila, those look delicious! Are those kidney beans inside? I would add to the list, simple dressings like Ranch or Italian. I also like rice vinegar and olive oil. (Sorry, can't think of anything fancy at the moment. :) )

I rinse the onion and pat it dry before adding the vinegar mixture.  It helps mellow the harshness of the onion, but if you like a stronger onion flavor, no need to do that.

Tequila, if you like olives you could add an olive tapenade or mixed olive spread.  Capers also add a nice brine-y flavor to sandwiches as well.

Yup, kidney beans. I'll definitely try dressings once I get some tomatoes.

The aforementioned beans aside, it's only green stuff. I put cream cheese on some, mostly to make it stick. Also tried mustard but it's not great without either fish or meat. Is Branston's different from other pickles?
And Sauerkraut is overrated :P

YOU BAKE!!!

Wild Maine Blueberry Pie

Can't wait to cut into this baby after it cools for a few hours. I tasted the overflow on the edge and it has the exact amount of sweetness I was looking for.

I never was much into the baking part of the culinary arts, but as I get older, I'm trying to rectify this shortcoming in my skills. I've warned my wife to be afraid...very afraid, because if I can master this aspect of cooking like I have appetizers, soups and entrees, she's in trouble. She doesn't have much of a sweet tooth, but she still can't refuse it.

Title: Re: What's for Dinner... and did you make enough for me
Post by: don s. on January 21, 2014, 06:01:12 PM
Sandy, I cook the chops (somewhat thick ones) on a rack in the oven at 275°F until they reach an internal temperature of 120°F. Then I stick 'em in a hot pan to brown them (and raise the internal temp to a higher, safer level). (I also used the drippings in the pan to make the mustard sauce you see drizzled over the, yes, polenta: minced shallots cooked in the fat, deglazed with dry vermouth or white wine, dollop of whole grain Dijon mustard, splash of cream).

I was making my way through the market today, when I caught a glance of Baby Back Ribs on sale for $2.99/lb. I haven't seen them that cheap in close to 15 years. So I picked up two full racks, each a little over 2lbs. in weight. Here's the result...

(http://img811.imageshack.us/img811/738/vfvi.jpg)

Sadly, I don't own a smoker, so I had to prep them the blasphemous way...slow simmering in water. But when they were done, I took the broth and reduced it and made the BBQ sauce from scratch, which you see in the bowl. It was a killer sauce, highlighted with Spiracha and Chipotle sauce. Quick flash in the convection oven and voila! The Angry Orchard Hard Cider went well with the meal too.

And finally... I have come to the realization that I'm getting old, because fifteen years ago, I could have polished off both rack of ribs with no problem. I had a hard time finishing a little over 1 rack. But, my two little dachshunds were happy over this dilemma.  ;)

I was going to make Chili con Carne today, but my stomach has been giving me grief the last two weeks, and Chili always kills it. So I changed my mind and made a French Canadian Tourtière and two Meatloafs. Making the Tourtière always reminds me of my mémère, who made the best Tourtière you could only imagine. I'm starting to come close to her recipe, I just need to find a butcher who can get me fresh Leaf Lard.

My wife been with me for the last 3 weeks and been cooking up quite a lot with a few home dinner parties.  Lately she got into making a lot of Italian food and mostly from scratch.  Near to far:

Rocket Salad Pizza: hand made dough, pizza sauce, Rocket Salad and parma ham... this was without cheese for one guest but there was thinly shaved parmesan cheese to put on as well

Mussels in white wine/cream sauce

Home made bread
