Is anyone interested in doing a recipe thread ?
People can even post requests .
Like general yummy stuff,baking ,vegan,vegitarian,gluten free that doesn't taste like cack .
Summer salads,to winter comfort foods ? Ethnic recipes from around the world .

And please,no how to cook snake ,cook human stuff .
Most of us do not eat them . If someone posts ,anyone have a good grasshopper recipe,well skies the limit ,but reasonable stuff please.

This can be a nice reference thread for people who like to try new recipes .

Miss me?

With all due respect, I think FAR more people eat snake than eat other people. :P

Apple Special

When I was a lad and we had no money, my brother and I needed a way to make our food more exciting and last longer so we invented the 'Apple Special'.

Ingredients: 1 apple, water

Instructions: Peel apple (eat skin while peeling), core and dice the apple into small squares. Place pieces of apple in a bowl of cold water and voilà, you have an Apple Special.

Eat with a spoon. Drink the water when apple pieces are finished. This kept us going on many a hungry day. In fact I am going to make one now, I do recommend you try it.

Hopefully other recipes posted will be more filling and challenging to make but I thought it best to start simple then build from there...  :)

I've seen far too many people recipes in here ,to not mention it.
There are snake restaurants in China and Japan .
You pick your snake out of the pit. They catch it,and cook it how you like it.
I myself,do drink Chinese snake wine. Which is brewed using 3 poisonous snakes .would I need a recipe for snake stew though ...Neh .

*stamps tiny foot*
Cmon guys,I'm being serious .

Here,I made this yesterday .

Chickpea salad.

One large can strained chickpeas .
1/4 red onion
2 small carrots
2 small celery stalks
Flat Italian parsley,salt pepper to taste .
Juice of half a lemon,or 1/4cup red wine inegar .,or both ,if you like it tart.
1/4th a cup good olive oil .
A sprinkling of grated parmesean or romano cheeze (optional) .
Two dashes of hot red pepper (optional )

I slice my onion,carrots,and celery,thin,with a mandolin.
You can do a fine chop of them,but the mandolin Is less strain on the hands.
Dump it all in a bowl with the chickpeas.
Dashes of salt ,pepper and hot pepper.
Mix.
Drizzle olive oil over it. I squeeze the half lemon over my hand ,catching the pits.
A splash or two of vinegar .
Chop up parsley,toss in.Mix well.
You can add cheese and a bit of crushed rosemary,to make it more Italian.
Toss again.

Eat with a lovely piece of bread or pita,to dip into the oils at the bottom .

I'll start, Gator nuggets,
Gator tail works best for this.  Cut the gator tail into bit size pieces.  Sprinkle with liberal amounts of garlic power. Put in a bowl of buttermilk. In a bag put in 1 cup of flour, salt, pepper and a 1/2 cup of parmasan cheese.  Put gator in the bag and shake. Put in hot oil to fry. (I haven't made it in a while so I don't remember how long.) Try not to over cook it, it will get tough.  Maybe 3 or 5 mins.  put on papertowel.  I like it with ranch dipping sauce.

“Fried Ice Cream”
(It might look complex or time consuming but my teenagers (sons) would make this so it must be worth it. lol)

Bunuelos (fried sweet puffs):
Heat in saucepan until boiling:
½ cup water
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
Boil uncovered for 2 minutes.

Cool an stir in:
1 egg slightly beaten

In small bowl mix:
2 cups AP flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ t salt
Cut in 2 Tablespoons butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs.

Stir in egg mixture.

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface and knead until elastic, about 5 minutes.
Shape dough into roll 20 inches long. Cover and let rest 1 hour.

Heat oil 1-inch deep to 365 degrees. Cut dough into 1-inch slices. Roll each slice on slightly
floured surface into 5-inch circle OR use tortilla press.
Fry circles until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

Sprinkle each bunuelo with a combination of cinnamon and sugar. Top with 2 scoops vanilla ice cream (sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar if desired) and drizzle with chocolate sauce and honey.

Finish with whipped cream and  more cinnamon/sugar.

It is yummy! Enjoy!

I have a habit of finding recipes, and then changing them to make them my own. This is a pork chop sauce I made for my partner and his brother a couple of days ago (they're my guinea pigs for new recipes- they love it, I haven't made a bad thing yet ;) )


Random sauce for pork chops

For 4 pork chops

3t Butter

3 Shallots, finely chopped

1t garlic, or 2 cloves finely chopped

3/4C chicken stock

1C cream or evaporated milk

2T Dijon mustard

1t Coriander, finely chopped

1. Melt butter in pan, add pork chops and cook until browned, then remove and set aside. Mix cream, mustard and coriander together in a separate bowl

2. Stir butter left in pan, scrape the pork off the bottom of the pan, lightly fry shallots and garlic, then add chicken stock and stir until combined

3. Pour in cream and mustard mixture, and stir until thickened.

4. Remove sauce from pan, and finish cooking the pork chops until cooked through

Serve with vegetables

That's what I made for dinner tonight, it was incredibly tasty. Although I changed breast fillets to thigh fillets.

My friend and I are going to try and get a food blog going

A flexible prawn recipe

Basic ingredients:
6 large prawns per person
olive oil
4 chopped garlic cloves
dry crumbled red chilies
whiskey or cognac (I prefer the first)

-Heat the oil in a pan
-Add chilies then the prawns, stir frequently
-add garlic
-Heat whiskey, set alight & flambé the prawns
At this stage you can stop & serve with fresh crusty bread
OR
add 1 teaspoon concentrated tomato paste, and low fat cream; sprinkle with chopped flat-leaf parsely
Serve with plain white rice

I do not have exact quantities for this recipe, when I cook it I 'judge' quantities by sight :blush: !

I tend to judge by sight as well, and then do it more precise the next time if I like it :P
