jjhunter: Watercolor purple ruffled monster with mouthful of raw vegetables looks exceedingly self-pleased (veggie monster)

Cheap, easy, stores well, and can be jazzed up with further additions to vary latter servings - this recipe is one of my fallback staples.

ingredients )

Heat oil in heavy-bottomed pot (you'll need a lid later) and saute onion and garlic until translucent. Add ginger, tumeric and curry powder and saute a few minutes longer. (Can add more oil if necessary.) Add rice and saute for a few more minutes to coat the rice. Add the lentils, stock, raisins, and sunflower seeds, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 25 minutes.

Excellent served with yogurt, or with Waldorf salad.

Extras my mom recommends:
Would be good with butternut squash...roasted in chunks (with parsnips perhaps? ) or bake the squash, scoop it out and whip it with a bit of orange juice and nutmeg. Saute some dark greens (chard, spinach) with olive oil, garlic, pinenuts as a second vegetable.

"Recipe" for what I just did:

One Le Creuset 4 qt soup pot
Turn to medium-high heat
2 tablespoons olive oil
Dump in chopped up onion, celery, and carrots (my grocery store sells these in a nice package)
Stir around and let them hang out with the oil for a while (5 minutes? Ish?)
Smoked paprika and mudflats
Add two chicken breasts, chopped small
One 32 ounce thing of turkey broth
One tablespoon chicken better than boullion
Add season salt and lemon pepper
Cover and let cook on medium heat for the next 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, make your gnocchi according to package. (In this gluten-free household, we use CoraBella's gluten free gnocchi. A lot.)

As soon as the gnocchi and the soup are both done, drain the gnocchi and add it to the soup. Mix well, serve.

From start to us finishing up eating, this took less than an hour.

Pikelets are a bit of an Antipodean thing. Growing up, my family took their pikelets very seriously. I don't often make them now, but, if I do, it is definitely serious business. For those of you not from here, you might call pikelets silver dollar pancakes, drop scones or griddle cakes. This is the best recipe I have come across.

I'm going to a potluck tonight, and I am taking these little morsels of delicious. I found them originally at Jelly Toast, but made several changes to the recipe.

I have tested these on [personal profile] rising and [personal profile] tajasel, and they were a hit. Posting partly because [personal profile] rising needs the recipe. Because I have the seasoning mixes already on hand, and I keep bacon grease around as well, this is one of the things I improvised when simultaneously pretty broke and in need of comfort food.

Ingredients (amounts vary by intended number of servings; season to taste):
Baking potatoes
Grease or oil (bacon, by preference)
Montreal steak seasoning
Dill (slightly less optional)
Bacon salt (optional)
Taco seasoning (I used Trader Joe's) (optional)
Condiments (optional)

Preparation time: actually kind of slow, but most of it's waiting for the cooking, and the waiting can be done doing other things.
Serves: depends on how many potatoes you use. 1 potato per person; 2 potatoes per very hungry person.

 Its christmastime in the south, and the heat is afoot. But whether its 20 degrees or 70 (wahoo, Texas) outside, you can always enjoy this family classic: Corn Casserole.

Its about the easiest and most delicious thing you can make, and makes a fabulous side dish to go along with your Christmas Ham... I hear some families make turkey, but in my family, you eat (deep fried) turkey only for Thanksgiving. I'm sure the casserole'd taste awesome with both.

Deliciousness below... )

It's the recipe off the back of the chocolate chip package, but hey, with a few modifications, I made it better! =)

Link to the Milk Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookie recipe


* switched out the butter for butter-flavored Crisco shortening (I like chewier cookies)
* switched out the brown sugar for Splenda brown sugar blend for baking
* switched out the white sugar for Splenda sugar blend for baking
* switched out 1/2 cup of the white flour for whole wheat flour
* left out the damned raisins

I also put the batter into a 9x9 pan to bake that way, rather than dollop 30+ cookies on to sheets - eh, I'm lazy. *g*

However - if you go the method of the 9x9 pan - turn the oven temp down about 25* (to 350* from 375*) (( adjust as necessary for the individual crankiness of your oven )) and bake for 20 mins, check the cookie, then an additional 5 if necessary.

Enjoy!! =)

 So, I'm bored out of my mind for various reasons, and go on a journey of discovery through our less-used cabinets. What do I find? An almost empty, still good bag of cornmeal that I haven't touched in far too long.

Due to lack of cheese to make jalapeno cornbread, I settled for cornmeal pancakes!

Successful experiment below... )

I posted this at my gardening journal, [personal profile] pinepigs_garden and thought I would post it here. It's a scrumptuous recipe and since it's persimmon season here it's perfect! You can probably also use tinned pumpkin if you want too, that would be tasty. If you were really experimental in the kitchen it would probably be nice with a nectarine or peach puree or possibly applesauce.

It's great for eating yourself, but would also be a good Christmas cookie to make for gifts, for fundraising bake sales or just having family/friends over for coffee.

My changes are either in itallics or strikethrough.

Moist Persimmon Cookie
"This is a soft moist spicy cookie. The persimmon fruit lends its sweetness and color to this simple cookie. Any type if nuts may be used for this and you may prefer to leave out the raisins."

So, funny thing - while I'm not actually hosting Christmas this year, I am doing most of the heavy cooking. I was feeling ambitious. Here's the menu:

-Homemade lasagna (which I am NOT posting the recipe for - it's a family secret)
-Whatever vegetables Mom decides to steam/cook/otherwise serve up
-Homemade soda of two varieties - cherry ginger ale and cherry-lemon-lime (I use a brewing kit for those, and the process is a bit too extensive and possibly not appropriate for a post here)
-Peanut Butter Chocolate Ribbon for dessert

Here is the recipe for the Ribbon: )
