Here's a Great Recipe for...

#53640 3 years ago
There was so much talk of food last night, it seemed like a good time to start a thread dedicated to recipes. Since food can be both art and poetry, I'm hoping this will fit right in. I know there's a lot of us out there who like to cook, so how about we share some of our favorites on an ongoing basis? Let us know what worked, what didn't and what was so good you're going to make another batch right this minute!
With apologies for posting this for a second time, I'll start it out with something for the gardeners:

Habenero Pepper Sauce:

12 habeneros, chopped after removing stems (wearing gloves suggested)
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cloves minced garlic
1 Tbl vegetable oil
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
1/4 cup lime juice

Saute onion, garlic in oil until soft. Add carrots and a couple tablespoons of water, bring to boil then simmer until soft. Blend veggie mixture with habeneros in blender or processor until smooth. Return to stove and add vinegar and lime juice and simmer for a few more minutes to combine the flavors.

Keeps in refrigerator for a couple of weeks (if you're a canner you can put into sterilized jars).

That sounds yummy. If for some reason I expire from this recipe. You will have instructions sent on where you can pick up my Furthur tickets for Red Rocks.

I'll share a recipe I have for a Gooey Butter Cake. Its a St. Louis trademark LOL It's not my own recipe but I've tried a few different out and this is by far the best!!

For crust:
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/3 cup butter, softened

For filling:
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1 egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar

1. Prepare the crust. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup flour and 3 tablespoons sugar. Cut in 1/3 cup butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs and starts to cling together. Pat into the bottom and sides of a greased 9-by-9-by-2-inch pan.

2. Prepare the filling. In a mixing bowl, beat 1 1/4 cups sugar and 3/4 cup butter until light and fluffy. Mix in egg until combined. A bit at a time, alternately add 1 cup flour and evaporated milk, mixing after each addition. Add corn syrup and vanilla. Mix at medium speed until well blended.

3. Pour filling into crust-lined pan. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until cake is nearly set. DO NOT OVER COOK. Let cool in pan.

If you do make this recipe remember not to over cook it. You want all the ooey gooey goodness!!! I recommend baking for 30 minutes exactly.

Dreams are lies...it's the dreaming that's real!!!!

That haddock sounds great! And Queenie, I often have to feed a hungry band on Friday nights, so I'd love that taco pie recipe and any cheap-chicken-for-a-group recipes. Those would go well with the gooey butter cake that the St. Louis-native drummer will appreciate, thanks to FF67. : )

I cook for the week on Sunday.

Excellent dishes for groups. I learned to cook over a campfire, for hippies, so my meals tend to have few pots, are set to feed lots of people, and have good leftovers. Plenty of rice and beans type stuff.

This weekend I'll try to post what I'm cooking, and get a few pics.
Let us all look kindly on our neighbor.

Pasta Fagglioli (Fazool) is an awesome meal for many at a time.

White canneloni beans
Ditalini pasa
Red sauce

(Meat if you desire) Sausage, pepperoni, prosciutto, etc etc.

the recepie is one can of beans per 2 cans of homemade tomato sauce.

empty beans and juice of beans into sauce pan. fresh garlic, basil, salt pepper. Add one can of water. Simmer until beans soft.

Add tomato sauce, flavor to taste.

Cook ditalini pasta 'al dente' add to beans and sauce. Thin with water if necessary. Should not be pasty but should not also be soupy.

I am making a barrel of this saturday for a few friends.

that gooey desert looks good... never heard of it before....

Here's my contribution from this weekend: Baklava 100% from scratch.... and delish (though not as flaky... next time in the layers I will add a little cold butter in the layers before rolling them out, to help make more flaky layers....) Here's the backstory: latimes.com/features/food/la-fo-ramadan-rec2-20110825,0,820895.story

Recipe: Baklava
August 25, 2011

Total time: 2½ hours

Servings: This makes about 3 dozen pieces

Note: You can substitute prepared puff pastry sheets for homemade dough if desired (1 sheet of puff pastry for each 20-layer sheet of homemade dough); bake at 375 degrees and omit brushing the puff pastry with melted butter before baking. We tested using 4 (9½-inch square) prepared sheets and made 2 baklava using the amount of walnuts and prepared syrup given below.

2 cups sugar

1¾ cups water

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon baking powder

4 cups plus 2½ tablespoons (17.64 ounces) flour

2 eggs

1/2 cup cooking oil

1/2 cup plain yogurt

Cornstarch, for flouring

Scant 4 cups (1 pound, 2 ounces) walnuts, coarsely ground

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, melted

1. Heat the oven to 325 degrees. In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, water and lemon juice. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, then remove from heat and set aside to cool.

2. In a large bowl, sift together the baking powder with the flour. In a separate medium bowl, beat together the eggs, cooking oil and yogurt. Gently stir the liquid ingredients into the dry. Knead to a fairly soft but not sticky dough, adding a little water if necessary.

3. Divide the dough into 40 equal pieces (each will weigh about three-fourths of an ounce and will be about the size of a walnut in its shell). Roll out each one to the size of a small breakfast plate (about 5 inches in diameter), sprinkling with starch to stop the dough from sticking to the counter or pastry board. Stack 20 of the pastry sheets, sprinkling starch in between each layer. Roll out the stacked sheets at once until the dough is about 15½ inches in diameter. (You will need to place it on a large rimmed baking sheet; if you do not have one that's big enough, divide the dough into 80 equal pieces and prepare 2 smaller trays of baklava.)

4. Lay the combined rolled sheets of dough on the baking sheet. Sprinkle the ground walnuts evenly over. Roll out the next 20 sheets of dough in the same way as the first batch and place on top of the walnuts. Using a sharp knife, cut the baklava into parallel slices about 2 inches apart, then rotate the baking sheet by 45 degrees and cut again into parallel slices.

5. Spoon the melted butter over the baklava. Bake until the top of the baklava is golden and crisp, 30 to 45 minutes. Remove and pour over the cooled syrup. Serve hot or cold.
