A monster from the vaults...

This one feeds four; adjust quantities up or down...

Take four lamb shanks, and put them in a deep bowl. Also put in a whole head and a half of garlic - just chop that sucker in half, don't peel it - a couple of sprigs of thyme, a few bay leaves and few black peppercorns. Then pour over a bottle of hefty red wine (we use Rioja) and add 2 Tb of sherry vinegar. Leave to marinade for a good few hours, turning the meat occasionally. Overnight is good - the meat goes purple.

Oven at 200C

Take a roasting tin, and add olive oil to cover the base, and stick it over the burners. Take the purple perils from their bath, dust 'em lightly with flour, and brown them in the oil. Set them aside, and then roughly chop four onions (a mix of Spanish and white is good) and add a little more oil. Let them caramelize in the tin, really soft and golden, then put the meat back on top, pour in the marinade, and tent the thing in foil.

After two hours or so, you should have meat that falls off the bone, and a thick oniony slush - season to taste here.

Best served with parsnip mash (with a touch of grain mustard and some creme fraiche stirred in) and another bottle of the hefty red.

There should be plenty of sticky roast garlic floating about - squish it into the mash and onions like civilized folk, or suck it out of the skins. This is not quite finger food - you really need to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in properly.

I love my captain

And here's one from me. My dad's spiral meatloaf.

2 lbs ground beef
½ cup instant potato flakes
½ cup finely chopped onion 1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
¼ cup tomato sauce
2 eggs
2 tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
1 tblsp. A1 steak sauce

1 (15 oz) container ricotta cheese
1 (10 oz) package chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
1 egg
½ cup grated parmesan
1 tblsp. potato flakes
¼ tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper

2 tblsp. brown sugar
¼ cup tomato sauce
1 ½ tsp. dry mustard
2 tblsp. grated parmesan
Feel free to make extra of this if you want to. My dad usually does.

Set oven to 350 degrees.

For meat mixture: In large bowl, combine all ingredients for meatloaf. Mix well (stir, smush with hands, whatever). Shape mixture firmly into ball. Place between sheets of waxed paper. Roll out with rolling pin into 16 x 8 ½ x ½ inch rectangle. Remove top sheet of waxed paper. Set aside.

For filling: Combine all ingredients for filling. Mix well. Spread mixture evenly over meat to within ½ in. of edges. Start at 8 ½ in. side. Roll up meat jelly roll fashion, pulling off waxed paper as you go. Place seam down in 9 x 5 in. loaf pan.

For glaze: Bake for 60 min. Remove pan. Pour off excess liquid and discard. Sprinkle top with parmesan and bake for 15 min. more.
OR…Use half of glaze mixture (if you’ve made extra) Bake for 45 min. Drain excess liquid. Add the rest of the glaze, bake for 30 min. more and forget the parmesan.

This is great meatloaf and the only thing I've ever managed to enjoy that has spinach in it. Hope you all enjoy!


Op: You're fighting a war you've already lost.
Mal: Yeah, well I'm known for that.

I'm saving so many recipies I had to put 'em all on a mass storage device. Thanks MSG.

This is a nice healthy snack you may not have tried. Take an apple and slice it in as many pieces as you like, then take penut butter and break it on both sides of the fruit. Sprinkle a little tiny bit of sugar on it then put it in the microwave for no more then 30 secounds. Take out and let cool for a few secounds, then it. It has a unique tast, not all togeather bad. :) I like it plenty at least.

I know its not like, a real recipe exactly, but its what I got. :)

This is one of my favorite Mexican dishes. Not sure how Mexican it really is, but it's tasty. Measurements are approximate. I tend just to dump stuff in.


In a big pot, place--

4 lbs pork roast. The bone-in kind is best
1 lb pinto beans
2 cans green chilis
2 T cumin
1 T chili powder
1 t salt
1 t pepper
2 cloves garlic

Cover with water. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer and let cook about 4 hours. When meat is tender and pulling away from the bone, defat and shred the meat. Put back in pot and cook another couple hours. This is good served with cornbread and cheese on top.


Thursday, October 19, 2006 10:18 AM


wow another good have to love this recipe thread. I've made myself a cookbook from it. I think with some full color pictures we'd have ourselves a bestseller

Had to put this in. Tried this on the weekend and almost died from the bliss. It's a Rachel Ray

French toast and Bacon

1 pounds applewood smoked bacon
1/2 cup dark brown sugar

8 large eggs
1 cup half-and-half
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 pinches salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, ground or freshly grated
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 cups corn flakes, lightly crushed
1/2 cup sliced almonds, lightly crushed
4 tablespoons butter
12 (1 1/2-inch-thick) slices challah bread or soft "Italian" style bread
Medium or dark amber maple syrup to pass at table
Mint sprigs and edible flowers, suggested plate garnish

Fancy Fruit Topping:
1 large navel orange, peeled and chopped
12 large strawberries, sliced
1/2 pint blueberries
1/2 pint raspberries
1/2 pint blackberries
2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup orange liqueur (recommended: Grand Marnier)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Arrange bacon on slotted broiler pan. Sprinkle with brown sugar and place in oven to bake until crisp, 20 to 22 minutes.

Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.

In a shallow dish, beat together with a wire whisk: eggs, half-and-half, vanilla, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon. In a second shallow dish combine flakes and nuts. Add 2 tablespoons butter to warm skillet. Place a cookie sheet lined with foil (for easy clean-up) near the stove. Coat 4 to 6 slices of bread in egg, depending on the size of your skillet, then coat bread in cornflakes and nuts. Cook slices 2 minutes on each side and transfer toast to cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining slices and transfer toast to oven. Bake 10 minutes, with already cooking bacon.

While bacon and toast are in oven, combine fruit, sugar and liqueur in a serving bowl and reserve.

Remove toast and bacon from oven. Warm syrup in a small pitcher in microwave 15 seconds on high. Serve toast and bacon on plates with optional garnish of mint and edible flowers.

Pass syrup and topping at the table.

Back from FPG in Florida (Emerald Rose had their signing table next to mine so I got to get my copies of "Done The Impossible" DVD and Soundtrack signed--)

I'll get some more recipes for actual comestibles together soon, however, the FPG staff introduced me to the following drink:

Flaming Dr. Pepper

2/3 cup cheap beer
3/4 oz cheap Amaretto
1/4 oz Everclear

Fill cup with beer. fill shot glass 3/4 full with Amaretto. Pour Everclear on top of Amaretto. Ignite with lighter or match. Drop into cup of beer. Chug while your friends are standing around screaming chug chug chug...

Near the end of the drink it actually tastes like Dr. Pepper...

Yeah...Fairly juvenile but that's what happens when you get con/festival staff all in one place trying to entertain the headliners. I should warn you though...Limit heavy drinkers to 3 and lightweights to 1

I am making this chili for a cookoff this weekend, and I thought I would share with everyone. It is for a white chicken chili:


2 lbs chicken breast, boneless and skinless
2 packets McCormick White Chicken Chili seasoning, or equivalent spices
12 oz cherry/grape tomatoes
1 medium jalapeno pepper (optional: fire roasted)
3 cans pinto beans, drained
1 can black beans, drained
1 can whole kernel yellow corn, drained
1 can Ro-Tel diced tomatoes and chilis
2-3 cloves garlic (optional: fire roasted)
½ cup sour cream, plus additional as needed for topping
Salt, as needed
Pepper, as needed
Garlic powder, as needed
Onion powder, as needed
Cumin, as needed
Cayenne pepper, as needed
Hot pepper sauce (ie: Tabasco), as needed
Shredded cheese for topping (cheddar or Monterey Jack work best)


Cook chicken breasts whole in skillet, seasoning with salt, pepper, and garlic & onion powders as desired. Remove chicken and let rest until cool enough to handle. Using serrated knife, shred chicken, placing in large chili pot (crockpot can be substituted for additional simmer time if desired). Add water, seasoning packet, and several tomatoes, quartered. Let simmer for a while (I did 5 hours, but 1 should suffice, unless you have the extra time). Slice jalapeno and mince garlic, adding both to mix, along with all beans, Ro-Tel, and corn. Quarter remaining tomatoes and add. Fold in sour cream, and add additional water to reach desired consistency (I prefer really thick chili, but others like it a little thinner). Add cumin, cayenne pepper, and hot pepper sauce to taste, and allow to simmer for additional 30 minutes – 2 hours, depending on time constraints. Serve warm with optional dollop of sour cream and pinch of shredded cheese. Enjoy!

This is really wierd sounding but comes out quite good.

Main course:
1x Large bottle quality brand katchup (Heinz, etc.)
1x bottle of Coke-a-Cola
Chicken parts (breasts/thighs/etc.

put Katchup in a large pot
add an equal amount of Coke.
Stir well and drop in thawed chicken parts.
Simmer untill chicken is thoroughly cooked.


NOTE: We've trid other cola brands but NOTHING works except Coke. Not sure what the secret ingredient is but any other cola we've tride ends up awefull.

Side dish:
Slice up a small onion very thin (thinner slices carmalize easier) and chop the slices up (pieces no bigger than an inch or so). A little oil and high heat in a pan to cook the onion to where its sort of a clearish brown color (easy to burn it so keep stirring a lot). Dump it in a mixing bowl when done.

Crush a couple cloves of garlic in a pan with some oil. Brown the garlic and add a LITTLE BIT of dried, crushed, red pepper (the stuff poeple put on Pizza). Be carefull, the pepper goes a LONG way in this! Dump in the bowl with the cooked onion.

Cook some thin spagetti noodles and drain. Dump in the bowl and mix thouroughly.


NOTE: leftover noodles will continue to get hotter the longer they sit in the fridge soaking up the pepper from the oil... I generaly can't eat em if I let em sit for more than a day or so.

Another main course:

Take a chicken and stick slices of garlic under the skin at random all over it so the slices are no more than a few inches from each other.

Fill the inside of the chicken with slices/chunks of green apple and onion.

Put the chicken breast upside down in a casserole dish (souround with more apple and onion slices) and cook it. About 10-15 minutes before done, flip the chicken over (breast side up) and final bake it at higher temp to brown the skin.

Cooking it upside down and full of apples and onions makes some of the juciest chicken breast I've ever had.

Another side dish:

Boil some potatoes just long enough to make them easy to cut in 1/4 inch thick slices but not too soft so they mush when you cut them.

At a ratio of about 1 onion for each 2 potatoes, slice up the onions and pre cook them a little to soften them up with some garlick and butter (or oil if you prefer).

layer the semi-cooked potato slices with the onions and lots of butter (or oil again) in a frying pan and fry them untill the potatoes are just a bit brown and crispy around the edges but not burnt.


Mushroom & Meat pastries:

1 lb hamburger
1 can Campbells Cream of Mushroom soup
2 extra large pullsbury crescent roll tube (or 3 small ones)

Brown the hamburger and drain it.
Add the can of soup (don't add any water) and stir well. Add onions, extra mushrooms, garlic, etc to taste.

Allow the hamburger mix to cool. The hotter the mix is, the messier and harder the next step is. Room temp or even a bit lower is best.

Only when everything else is ready, take crescent roll tube out of the fridge and make a flat, pancake sized disk of each crescent roll.

Put a large spoonfull of the meat-mushroom mix in the center, fold up the edges and press em together in the middle. Flip the pastry over and place on a cookie sheet. Again, the warmer everythign is, the harder and messier this part gets.

Cook following the crescent roll package directions.


That's the easy/simple ones I can think of off the top of my head that are also "probably" not in the list above. I didn't read the whole thing... ;)

Chocolate pie...

1 lb hersheys chocolate bar
1 premade 8 inch chocolate grahm cracker pie crust
1 container coolwhip

melt the chocolate (double boiler is best).

dump the coolwhip in a mixing bowl.
pour in the chocolate and mix till it's a smooth, even brown.

spoon the mix into the pie crust and put in the fridge. You can use the back of a spoon to "spike" the top surface of the mix. Just touch the spoon to it and lift up a bunch of times all over it.

Optionaly, throw in chocoalte chips or M&Ms, chopped peanuts, etc when you mix the filling and/or grate a bit of dark chocolate over the top for looks.

Thought I'd bump this back up so we can all share and enjoy...and I thought I'd throw this in for good measure

New York Cheesecake Swirl:
2/3 cup sugar
16 ounces cream cheese
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 whole eggs, room temperature
16 ounces semisweet chocolate morsels

Rich Chocolate Cake:
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups cocoa powder
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
6 whole eggs
2 cups buttermilk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
8 ounces unsalted butter, melted and cooled

Make the New York Cheesecake Swirl:
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla extract on high speed until well combined. Add the eggs and continue to beat on high speed. Make sure to scrape down the sides to ensure incorporation of all the ingredients. Once combined, gently fold in the chocolate morsels. Chill the mixture for approximately 1 hour.

Make the Rich Chocolate Cake:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Lightly grease and flour 3 (9-inch) cake pans and set aside. In a large bowl, sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and baking powder together. Add the sugar and salt and stir to combine well.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla and melted butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients in small increments, gently folding the mixture until well combined.

Pour the mixture into 1 of the prepared cake pans, only filling the pan halfway. Randomly place teaspoon-size dollops of the cream cheese mixture atop the chocolate cake batter. Repeat with the remaining 2 prepared cake pans. Bake for approximately 30 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.

Had to throw this in 'cause we had it at the baby shower last night
1 1/4 cups passion fruit puree
1 1/4 cups orange juice
3/4 cup sugar
Scant 1 tablespoon gelatin dissolved in 2 tablespoons water
3 cups heavy cream, whipped
2 finger bananas
Coarse sugar
1 kiwi, peeled, cut in 1/2 and sliced

In a saucepan, heat the passion fruit puree, orange juice, and sugar until dissolved.

Add the gelatin to the hot juice and stir to melt and combine. Strain the liquid into a bowl and place it over an ice bath. Stir it constantly with a rubber spatula and when it just starts to set, fold in the whipped cream. Pour this into soup plates or dessert bowls and chill. If storing them overnight, cover them with plastic wrap.

To serve the mousse, remove the bowls from the refrigerator. Peel and slice the bananas in half longways and dip their faces in coarse sugar and caramelize them under a broiler or with a blowtorch. Place them on the mousse fanning them then tuck in a few half slices of kiwi.

Ok in honor of spring..and because several have asked for a return of the thread

Lemon Chicken Rice Salad

2 C cooked chicken breast chopped
3-4 cups cooked rice ( still warm)
1 bunch scallions chopped fine
1/4 C lemon juice
zest of one lemon
2 Tbs garlic paste
1 and 1/2 C mayonnaise
6 ribs of celery finely chopped

In a large bowl fold chopped scallions into warm rice. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Stir in chicken, celery, garlic, mayonnaise, and lemon juice. When well mixed re-cover and refrigerate. Just before serving, grate the zest of one lemon over the top. ( I often hollow out tomatos and serve the salad inside with the tomato top as a lid:)

2 chicken breasts
1/2 cup tomato sauce
tabasco sauce
1 tbs butter
1/2 c crumbled blue cheese
