I know...this is a fishing site.
But...most avid fishers love to cook. I thought it might be cool to share some cherished family recipes with our fellow fishers.

This should be about whatever you cook for your family or yourself that is one of your favorites. I know I have a bunch of good home cooked meals that my BRide and I enjoy.

Whatcha all think?

Fried cabbage, bacon, and noodles is a favorite in our home.  Just had it this weekend.  Left to my own devices, I'd substitute bacon grease for butter every chance I get.  Particularly on sweet corn and potatoes.

Everything is better with bacon! I make some double dark chocolate brownies with crumbled bacon on top. 👌

Last night we had one of our favorites. We call it "the egg thing". It's sort of a stove top frittata. One of those refrigerator meals that you can make using whatever you have  at hand.

Ours was pork sausage, broccoli, sweet bell pepper, onion and fresh wax beans topped with Munster cheese.

Spray a non stick skillet with cooking spray and brown the meat.
Add the vegetables with a bit of water ( 1/4 cup or so) to deglaze the pan. Cover and steam sautť the veggies with the meat.
Whisk 5 whole eggs with about 1/2 cup of milk adding salt, pepper and fresh parsley (if you have it)

When the veggies are tender, deglaze the pan again if necessary, give them another spritz of cooking spray and toss.

Pour the egg mixture over the veggies and meat, top with your favorite shredded cheese, cover and reduce the heat to low.
Rotate the pan every few minutes to cook evenly until the eggs have set.

A quick yummy meal.

   I couldn't agree more!

Cajun Walleye with chambord buerre blanc;
Pat dry the fillets, let them rest an hour at room temp
In a small sauce pan on medium heat melt a tbsp of butter and a tbsp of xvoo
add 3 finely diced garlic cloves, just browning them
add a sprig of tyme lightly crushed
add 2 cups white wine, I use Chardonnay
add 1/2 cup chambord
add 1/4 of a fresh lemon lightly squeezed
bring to a boil then slow to a low simmer
1 stick salted butter sliced into 1/4"
simmer the reduction down till it begins to get small bubbles, ie the sugars are out.
strain
add back to pan on low heat and SLOWLY fold in the butter stirring constantly to avoid breaking
 
The eyes I give a liberal dusting of Cajun while heating a cast iron pan or skillet, seasoned with bacon grease of course
give the fillets 3-4 mins per side

Once the sauce is done remove from heat immediately
pick your favorite veggie
steam some rice
pour that raspberry lemonade buttery goodness all over everything and enjoy!

Yikes....chef Eddy strikes again! Sounds wonderful and I love making sauce reductions.

In the fridge I have a jar of port wine reduction. It was a reward for turning a mortar and pestle for a good friend. He was a chef for many years. I've used it on beef, pork and chicken with delightful results.

Ever had a Chambord Royal?

For me, slow cooker season is upon us. Allows my family to eat right after work and before dance, gymnastics and other after school activities.

Today's meal is Mexican Pot Roast:

2.5 - 3.5lb boneless chuck roast
1 onion sliced
baby red potatoes
package of taco seasoning
2 TSP cumin
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 14.5oz can roasted diced tomatoes, drained

Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Arrange onion and potatoes in slow cooker. Place beef over vegetables. Sprinkle seasonings.  Pour tomatoes over beef and vegetables.

Cook on Low heat 8 to 9 hours or until beef is tender.

(https://i.postimg.cc/YhdqLmHR/0924191932.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/YhdqLmHR)
The prep work;
1lb baby carrots sliced
1 celery heart sliced
1 large Vidalia onion diced
1 large head of garlic sliced
1lb baby Bella mushrooms sliced
1 tbsp each fresh oregano,tyme, rosemary
4 lbs moose in seasoned flour, I use salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and Cajun

  Now you can use regular carrots and celery or any onion you want, but theres an old saying when it comes to soup, you get out what you put in. These are sweeter and it comes through.
(https://i.postimg.cc/Dmjw8XFg/0924191931.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/Dmjw8XFg)
Carmilize your veggies, add in the garlic. Let that cook for another 3 mins then add 1/2 cup bacon grease. Add your moose and mushrooms browning the meat. Add your herbs and some crushed pepper. I use our dehydrated blend of japs, Hungarian wax, cherry, and this year carolina reaper  :o

(https://i.postimg.cc/mPVXsB7t/0924191936.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/mPVXsB7t)
Deglaze the pan with a beer, darker is better. Add cold water till it's about 2 inches above the rest. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 2 hours.

(https://i.postimg.cc/QBTfW5RW/0924192155.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/QBTfW5RW)
Add 1 lb baby red potatoes.Check your meat for tenderness. While that's going on make a nice dark rue. Once youre satisfied with the meat add a tsp of beef base, I use better than bullion.
Add some frozen peas and bring to a boil stirring regularly. After 20 mins taste, a just if you need too, then stir in the rue and simmer for another 5.
(https://i.postimg.cc/PNYzzT30/0924192223.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/PNYzzT30)the results... ;D

Not really. The filling can be easy or less easy. I prefer home made filling. The recipe isn't all that difficult to accomplish. You can substitute a prepared lemon filling and it comes out just fine. Graham cracker crust is easy as ground up graham crackers, butter and sugar. It can be baked or not. I prefer lightly browned.

The meringue is also easy with a nice kitchenade stand mixer. Simple ingredients, egg whites ( the yolks go into the lemon filling in my recipe)  sugar, vanilla and cream of tartar. My advice is do not substitute or skip the cream of tartar. It does it's work adding acid to bind the egg whites into a firm meringue.

There's a ton of recipes online. I use one from a very old Betty Crocker cook book. They weren't afraid of butter, sugar or eggs when it was produced.

I make one of these a couple times a year. All things in moderation.

Tonight was one of my favs. Black Beans and Rice......my way

(https://i.postimg.cc/68VMV9kP/IMG-2901.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/68VMV9kP)

Red, yellow, orange bell peppers, onions, black beans, turkey kielbasa.

Sometimes I use Rice-a-Roni Long Grain and Wild rice.

Prepare the rice.

While the rice is cooking, brown some turkey kielbasa in some olive oil.

Chop red, yellow and orange bell peppers, onion and add to the kielbasa to sautť till soft.

Drain and rinse a can of seasoned black beans and add to the peppers, onion etc.
Season with Franks red hot, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, cumin  and soy sauce. Add a bit of heat with you're favorite hot pepper shake.( I make my own) cover and simmer till warmed through.

Mix the peppers and such with the rice and serve with shredded parm or asiago cheese.

Seriously delicious!

Tonight it was home made pasta and white clam sauce with shrimp.
In the pan.....( I don't do proportions for this kind of recipe. It just happens)
1 can chopped clams with juice.
Olive oil
Chopped garlic
Black opal Basil flowers
Greek oregano
Salt, pepper
Crushed red pepper
White wine ( I used Pinot Grigio)
Raw, peeled, deveined shrimp.
(https://i.postimg.cc/Ty7t9LRR/IMG-2902.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/Ty7t9LRR)

1 pile of home made pasta. This is thin spaghetti
(https://i.postimg.cc/56BprkxK/IMG-2903.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/56BprkxK)
Sautť the pan ingredients till reduced about half and add the shrimp
(https://i.postimg.cc/hzNMkkz6/IMG-2904.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/hzNMkkz6)
simmer covered till the shrimp are tender
(https://i.postimg.cc/mhFmYgKs/IMG-2905.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/mhFmYgKs)
Serve with fresh shredded asiago or Parmesan and a side of iceberg lettuce with a lite vinaigrette. I like malt vinegar.
(https://i.postimg.cc/xcDttSSb/IMG-2906.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/xcDttSSb)

I make pasta often using the  Kitchenaid pasta rollers and cutters. Takes me about 45 minutes start to finish to produce fresh pasta that blows store bought away.

Well worth the effort.

Tonight it was home made pasta and white clam sauce with shrimp.
In the pan.....( I don't do proportions for this kind of recipe. It just happens)
1 can chopped clams with juice.
Olive oil
Chopped garlic
Black opal Basil flowers
Greek oregano
Salt, pepper
Crushed red pepper
White wine ( I used Pinot Grigio)
Raw, peeled, deveined shrimp.

1 pile of home made pasta. This is thin spaghetti
(https://i.postimg.cc/56BprkxK/IMG-2903.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/56BprkxK)
Sautť the pan ingredients till reduced about half and add the shrimp
(https://i.postimg.cc/hzNMkkz6/IMG-2904.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/hzNMkkz6)
simmer covered till the shrimp are tender
(https://i.postimg.cc/mhFmYgKs/IMG-2905.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/mhFmYgKs)
Serve with fresh shredded asiago or Parmesan and a side of iceberg lettuce with a lite vinaigrette. I like malt vinegar.

I make pasta often using the  Kitchenaid pasta rollers and cutters. Takes me about 45 minutes start to finish to produce fresh pasta that blows store bought away.

Well worth the effort.

I'd put up a pic of the lemon meringue, but I don't want Fred to vapor lock.

Tried my first cast iron skillet pizza for dinner.
Got the dough all patted out, ( store bought)
(https://i.postimg.cc/c6H3QMs2/IMG-2911.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/c6H3QMs2)
Preheated the skillet on the stovetop with a good splash of olive oil. Dropped the dough in the skillet and baked it at 500 degrees for about 10 minutes.
(https://i.postimg.cc/XXzCxGqJ/IMG-2912.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/XXzCxGqJ)
Topped it with sauce, sausage, peppers, mushrooms ( all pre cooked), pepperoni and mozzarella. Popped it back in the oven at 500 for about 15 minutes.
(https://i.postimg.cc/0bKJ4kKC/IMG-2913.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/0bKJ4kKC)

Best pizza I've made yet. Next I'll work on my own  dough and sauce. The store bought is a bit sweet for my taste.

Try it.....you'll like it!

Wegmans honey brined turkey breast, give it a good sear at 475 for 20 mins, roll it back to 325 till 160 internal temp. Blanch asperagus, no more than 2 mins at a boil then shock. Render maple bacon, I use Wright's. Remove crispy strips with a slotted spoon, add a tbsp xvoo then diced onion and garlic till translucent, add sliced shrooms and season to taste, add the speragu toss, remove from heat and cover while the breast rests. The sweet taters get a boil till fork tender, then milk, butter, pumpkin pie spice and a table spoon of honey.

Title: Re: Ya Know....We Need Another Cooking Topic!
Post by: rgfixit on Nov 19, 2019, 03:15 AM
My recipe is basically the same as his.
Start with a roux.i like to sautť some diced onions and jalapeŮo peppers in the butter before adding the flour.

I use half and half rather than heavy cream and I prefer extra sharp cheddar, jalapeŮo Jack, shredded Asiago, ,Parmesan and a block of cream cheese for the sauce. Although, I like his idea of adding sour cream and mayo to the mix.

Rotini works better than elbow macaroni. More surface to pick up the cheese sauce.

I top mine with bacon crumbles and seasoned Italian bread crumbs.

Cast iron skillet is definitely the way to go. 

350* for about an hour.

Super delicious but, don't make it too often. It's a heart attack waiting to happen. Malcom looks like he eats it for breakfast every day.

Since they want me on a mostly liquid diet for a couple 2-3 days I find a few ways to enjoy it.

Been sniping tree rats off the bird feeder hoping to get the SOB that is in my attic. I've been looking for different recipes to try and came across this one. Looks good to me.



Hopefully, In a few more days I'll have enough to give it a whirl and report back.


As a side note, after over 50 years of skinning them, I finally found a method of skinning them that eliminates hair on the carcass. Do it under running water in the sink. Soak them down good. Then while under the faucet, cut across the middle of the back about 2" long. Again under running water, put your fingers in the cut pulling in opposite directions and peel the hide off like a sock. The water keeps 99% of the hair off the meat.

Looks good RG. If it isn't a family secret, could you share your pasta recipe. I have my great grandmother's pasta machine. It's been over 50 years since its been used. I would love to try.
Title: Re: Ya Know....We Need Another Cooking Topic!
Post by: rgfixit on Dec 26, 2019, 06:25 PM
The pasta is so simple you won't believe it.

3 whole eggs beaten
2 cups flour.

There's recipes out there that call for Olive Oli. I've tried them...don't like them. Makes the pasta tough.

If the dough seems dry add water a teaspoon at a time

If  the dough seems wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time.

It should be just past sticky.

I use my Kitchenaid with a dough hook.

Eggs in first
Add flour slowly to combine.
When the dough ball starts to form, knead for 5-10 minutes ( about #4 on the machine.) Might have to scrape the bowl a couple times during the process to combine all the flour etc.

By hand:
Place flour on a surface....counter top, cutting board ....whatever
Make a well in the middle and pour in the beaten eggs
Combine the flour with the eggs until there's a workable dough ball
Knead...knead...and knead some more until the dough is shiny and elastic. Could take 20 minutes of work. Knead, fold in the ends....knead some more. Add flour as needed to keep it from sticking.


Wrap the dough ball in plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes to an hour.

 Cut the ball in quarters and work with one piece at a time leaving the others wrapped up in plastic so they won't dry out.

It's really important. Dry dough is a pasta killer.

Work the piece of dough into a sort of rectangle and start running it through the rollers. You're looking for a sort of square sheet here to work with..

From there it's up to you as to what you want to make.

There's a ton of recipes out there for food processors, by hand etc...etc. in the end it's a mix of experience and what you have to mix with.

Flour is your friend! Keeps stuff from sticking...adds to texture...keeps the "Ball Rolling" so to speak.

Just don't over think it. I've been making pasta for a few years since my Daughter bought me the attachments for my Kitchenaid. I can whip up Garlic, Basil Fettuccine in about 30 minutes. It's awesome.

So....go play in the flour!

I should be committed.

During all of this, and because I do the cooking, Iíve lost 45 pounds so far.  My short term goal is another 35 pounds before the cruise in March however it will be really tough.  Iíve only been losing about 1.5-2 pounds a week on average.  But Iím working on it.  And, like the cold temps, it sux.

The pasta is so simple you won't believe it.

3 whole eggs beaten
2 cups flour.

There's recipes out there that call for Olive Oli. I've tried them...don't like them. Makes the pasta tough.

If the dough seems dry add water a teaspoon at a time

If  the dough seems wet, add flour a tablespoon at a time.

It should be just past sticky.

I use my Kitchenaid with a dough hook.

Eggs in first
Add flour slowly to combine.
When the dough ball starts to form, knead for 5-10 minutes ( about #4 on the machine.) Might have to scrape the bowl a couple times during the process to combine all the flour etc.

By hand:
Place flour on a surface....counter top, cutting board ....whatever
Make a well in the middle and pour in the beaten eggs
Combine the flour with the eggs until there's a workable dough ball
Knead...knead...and knead some more until the dough is shiny and elastic. Could take 20 minutes of work. Knead, fold in the ends....knead some more. Add flour as needed to keep it from sticking.


Wrap the dough ball in plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes to an hour.

 Cut the ball in quarters and work with one piece at a time leaving the others wrapped up in plastic so they won't dry out.

It's really important. Dry dough is a pasta killer.

Work the piece of dough into a sort of rectangle and start running it through the rollers. You're looking for a sort of square sheet here to work with..

From there it's up to you as to what you want to make.

There's a ton of recipes out there for food processors, by hand etc...etc. in the end it's a mix of experience and what you have to mix with.

Flour is your friend! Keeps stuff from sticking...adds to texture...keeps the "Ball Rolling" so to speak.

Just don't over think it. I've been making pasta for a few years since my Daughter bought me the attachments for my Kitchenaid. I can whip up Garlic, Basil Fettuccine in about 30 minutes. It's awesome.

So....go play in the flour!

Rg
Thanks, RG. I got busy with the holidays and missed this. It will be fun with the grandkids. My Great grandmother ran a small restaurant/bar in Mentor Ohio till she was in her late 80's. She made fresh pasta every day. I remember turning the crank on the machine when i was maybe 6-7 years old when we would visit.. It will be fun seeing my little ones using it too.
Title: Re: Ya Know....We Need Another Cooking Topic!
Post by: rgfixit on Jan 07, 2020, 02:08 PM
Well, since I posted that recipe I've totally changed how I make pasta dough.

I bumped into an enlightening YouTube video by Helen Rennie. She gives very specific measurements and techniques that take the "Feel" process out of the equation.

By weight:
300 grams all purpose or #00 flour
185 grams of egg consisting of 1 whole egg, 2 yolks and enough water to reach 185 g.
1 tsp table salt or 2 tsp Diamond Crystal salt.

Mix dry ingredients in a food processor
Add eggs/water
Process till a dough ball forms ( less than a minute)
Remove all contents to a floured surface and knead for 8-10 minutes.

Let rest  wrapped in plastic for 30 minutes minimum
Cut into 4 sections and roll out one at a time.

It's well worth watching her video. She's a phenomenal cook and very good at making things clear and simple. I find her dough recipe far better than mine. In fact, I made last night's ribbon pasta from it.

Thought I knew what I was doing.....we all can learn something new about cooking. After watching this video, I went out and bought a food processor and digital scale.

They were fun to make and delicious.
I'm headed on a mission today to hit a couple of Asian markets in Henrietta. Still on the hunt for a small carbon steel wok. Everything I've seen has been non-stick coated. That's not going to last. May end up buying it online but I hate the hassle of returning stuff if I decide I don't like it. I'd rather be able to look it over first.

Took your advice and bought the same brand only in steel. Bigger that I had wanted but that's ok.

(https://i.postimg.cc/87fpHDwQ/IMG-3053.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/87fpHDwQ)

Gave it e serious seasoning on my propane burner....in the garage. A really smoky business. Came out nice. Did an egg test and could almost flip it. Didn't really stick though. Time to put it to use.

Also picked up a Lodge enameled Dutch oven.

Works perfectly. So simple.

Made it to a couple Asian markets this morning. Picked up some cooking wine, fish sauce, wonton and dumpling wrappers and a nice bamboo wok stirrer. Can't believe how inexpensive things were. One store had tons of fresh everything from pork to seafood. There was even a take out kitchen. I'll be going back there.

Making cooking sauce. This is one of my favorites for any kind of pasta sauce. This sauce is a Marinara of sorts. Slow cooked and reduced to accommodate additional flavoring and elements. I use a 16quart stock pot and only cook on low to medium low heat.

First I caramelize a whole vidilia onion in a half cup of extra virgin olive oil. It takes 30-45 minutes.
(https://i.postimg.cc/3WVWVDZ6/IMG-3068.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/3WVWVDZ6)
The basic ingredients:
2 28oz cans of...tomato sauce, tomato purťe, diced tomatoes, whole Roma tomatoes with juice and 2 large cans of tomato paste. Crush the whole tomatoes and remove any skins you might find. 2 green, and 1 each red, yellow and orange bell peppers chopped (small). Fresh garlic......lots of fresh garlic. I process mine in a small food processor with extra virgin olive oil. Did I say lots of garlic?
(https://i.postimg.cc/TyNTbZ7S/IMG-3067.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/TyNTbZ7S)
 
After the onions are caramelized, add in the  chopped peppers.

(https://i.postimg.cc/jLfCbdgj/IMG-3069.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/jLfCbdgj)
Add the seasonings: sea salt, black pepper, red pepper flakes, parsley, oregano, Basil and thyme. I use mostly what I've grown and saved from last summer. Black opal Basil ( flowers) , Greek Oregano, Curley Italian Parsley.....it makes a difference.

(https://i.postimg.cc/jDQ5D3r0/IMG-3070.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/jDQ5D3r0)

My own garlic too. Hard to believe I harvested this at the end of last June.
(https://i.postimg.cc/MnbFgV1m/IMG-3065.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/MnbFgV1m)

Anyway, simmer...simmer....simmer until it's reduced by 20% or so. Taste...adjust....add....make it your own. Remember that this is a cooking sauce and you'll  be tossing it in a sautť pan to flavor for the dish at hand.

Once it's finished I put it up in dinner sized servings. I freeze mine...it's just easier than any other storage method I've tried.

Enjoy.

I'll be doing a ravioli lasagna in half pans for the potluck. Didn't like the depth of the crockpot and trying to get the raviolis on the plate without destroying them. I'll do one meatless and one meat.

I use a pastry roller or a cookie cutter both work equally well. I don't really like them after they've been frozen. So, a small batch for a meal is best for us. Biggest thing I've found ( especially for cheese raviolis) is that the filling needs to be dry or they come out mushy. Meat ravs are fairly easy. Cook the meat and drain off excess juices and oils. Cheese....Ricotta....has to be dry. I leave mine in a sieve ,in a bowl, in the fridge overnight. A surprising amount of liquid comes out of it. I also bolster it with dry cheeses like Parmesan, Feta or goat cheese. Gives them more body. I also gave up adding egg. Makes it too creamy. Just a little salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Don't forget the nutmeg!

Walleye ravioli sounds really perfect.

I reorganized my chest freezer and discovered a few bags or perch. Thought about making some perch breakfast sausage. But ,I might make some perch raviolis too.  I would do a coarse grind and dry the ground fish as much as possible. I'd probably add an egg and maybe even a small amount of seasoned bread crumbs to bind the mixture.

My Bride wouldn't eat them...she doesn't like fish much. Sounds good to me though! Maybe drizzled with a nice fish stock Veloutť or a cheese Bťchamel. Mmmmmmmmmmm!

The noodles are not bad at all and Carb Quick is WAY better than almond flour.
There's 6 bags of noodles in that order from amazon.
Each bag is easily 2 hearty or 3 decent dinners for two.

The carb quick goes a long way.
If you only made pancakes and waffles with it you would be hard pressed to use it all in a couple months.

Yea, normal noodles and bags of flour are less money, but in the grand scheme of things...ÖÖÖ...

Title: Re: Ya Know....We Need Another Cooking Topic!
Post by: rgfixit on Jan 23, 2020, 04:57 PM
Brachiole got me thinking about a dish I haven't made in quite a while.

Involtini a la Bob! ( it's my own take on an old recipe)
Involtini can be made with many kinds of meats and an infinite number of ingredients. Tonight I used pork filled with mushrooms, asiago, seasoned bread crumbs, garlic, prosciutto and spinach.
I'll skip the particulars ( until you ask)

Basically it's a small version of Brachiole. Spread the filling on the thinned meat and roll up pinning it together with toothpicks. Sautť in olive oil with several cloves of crushed garlic. Brown well and remove. Pull the garlic if it starts to brown. Don't want that bitter garlic taste.
(https://i.postimg.cc/vx6xh63D/IMG-3084.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/vx6xh63D)

(https://i.postimg.cc/F1fSN2Nm/IMG-3085.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/F1fSN2Nm)

After its nicely browned, remove it and set aside.

Toss the olive oil from the pan and add a good pat of butter with an equal amount of olive oil.
Sautť fine chopped onions and garlic for a minute or two. Add enough flour to make a loose roux and simmer a couple minutes to cook the flour. Then add chicken or beef stock ( I make my own) to the roux to form a nice loose sauce. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Return the Involtini to  the sauce....cover and simmer for  10-15 minutes on low heat.

(https://i.postimg.cc/kVF0V1Cg/IMG-3086.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/kVF0V1Cg)

Remove the involtini and add sliced mushrooms and a chiffonade of spinach, add the involtini back in and simmer for a few minutes till the mushrooms are translucent.

(https://i.postimg.cc/tZB8ksY0/IMG-3087.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/tZB8ksY0)

Slice the inovltini.

(https://i.postimg.cc/mt1CTK3C/IMG-3088.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/mt1CTK3C)

Top with the mushroom spinach sauce.
(https://i.postimg.cc/WFS6JrtZ/IMG-3089.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/WFS6JrtZ)


Enjoy! It's a seriously tasty combination of a French Bechamel and an Italian favorite. Savory and rich tasting. But not a heart stopper ( if you know what I mean)

Title: Re: Ya Know....We Need Another Cooking Topic!
Post by: rgfixit on Jan 24, 2020, 03:31 AM
A little on the rich side for sure Mac. But I balance it out. Breakfast is usually some fat free cottage cheese, OJ and maybe some fruit. Lunch is pretty much always a lettuce and tomato salad with a little oil and vinegar. I have no problem with either of those meals. I don't have time to snack during the day ( unless there's pizza at work.....which isn't often).

We eat dinner early. Usually around 4:30. I guess my biggest sinful treats are some dark chocolate and bourbon. I don't eat cake or doughnuts or ice cream or chips. Even when I make a batch of brownies I only have 1. Over all I'm a pretty conservative eater. I used to be able to sit down and pound a whole strip steak or a couple plates of pasta. I just don't do that any more. Smaller portions are fine with me.

As long as I cook the food, I know what's in it and I can control it. That's why we rarely eat out at restaurants. Lord knows what they put in the food.

I'll be 70 in a few weeks and my Dr. isn't complaining about anything.

I do this all the time.
Of course it doesn't get a crust as you would get in an oven but it cooks fine.
Donna's favorite is when I put one in there with sauerkraut over it and a few pierogis on top of the kraut.
The juice from the kraut marinates the pork and steams the pierogi.

Have fun and enjoy.

Thanks Mac. Unfortunately no one else in the family would eat the kraut. Or the juices for that matter.

Decided to break in the new pot by making some chicken stock for Wonton soup with shrimp and scallops.

I've been working up a recipe for Duck Sauce. The first one I tried was from Foodnetwork or Allrecipes I think. It was just awful. I tinkered with a tiny batch this morning with my notepad and my Bride for a critic. (She's an honest critic). Came up with a pretty tasty mix. It's resting in the fridge for a while. If I can get her to approve, most anyone in the universe will enjoy it too.

If it works out I'll post the recipe.

Ever read what's in that packaged crap Mac? If I can't pronounce it....I generally don't eat it.

We had Wonton soup with shrimp and scallops on rice for dinner. Skipped the egg rolls for tonight. I'll do something tomorrow afternoon for our appetizer.

I'm trying to retrain my Bride's food preferences. Not that she's in bad health or overweight or anything. Just trying to feed her food that will keep her around a long time. I'd be lost without her.

Can't hurt me either👍

Oh...the new sauce pot......⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️! I'm very happy with it.

Duck sauce was terrific.

1 tbsp peach jam
I tsp apricot jam
1/2 tsp plum sauce
1/2 tsp light soy sauce
1/2 tsp rice vinegar
1/4 tsp chili paste.

Mix and refrigerate overnight if possible. It will keep in the fridge for about a month.

Also found out how to make the really authentic, sinus cleansing hot mustard some good Chinese restaurants serve.
It's terribly complicated.
Equal parts dry mustard powder and water......that's it! I guess you can add honey or sugar if you like. I prefer to sneeze a couple times.

I have never had pickled fish of any kind.
Does it taste ďpickledĒ?
You know, like dill or sweet?
Forgive my ignorance.

I may want to try this with Walleye.
We end up with so d**n much Walleye in the freezer every year that Jeff and I always end up doing C&R from about mid to late July on for the rest of the season.

This might mean Iíll have to keep a few more.
Title: Re: Ya Know....We Need Another Cooking Topic!
Post by: rgfixit on Feb 02, 2020, 01:51 PM
It's sort of similar to pickled herring but nowhere near as strong. I've been making this for many years.

It's simple. Brine the fish overnight. Make up the Pickling and jar it up. Keeps in the fridge for about a month I'd guess. Mine doesn't seem to last that long.

The brine is made with kosher or sea salt. Dissolve enough in Luke warm water to float an egg ( a raw egg in the shell).

Chunk up the fish and brine overnight. Some say you should use only distilled water to avoid some sort of mineral taste. I've used that and tap water and can't tell the difference.

Rinse the fish thoroughly and rest in fresh cold water in the fridge while you make the Pickling.

Pickling:
1 c. Cider vinegar
2 c white vinegar
1 c. White wine ( I like Pinot Grigio)
1 c. Sugar
2 tbsp Pickling spices.

Heat the liquids on low and desolve the sugar. Add the Pickling spices and set aside for a couple hours to cool.

Strain the spices.

Layer clean jars with sliced sweet onion and fish. Cover with the Pickling and poke a chopstick or wooden spoon handle into the jar to release the bubbles. Fill the jars to the top , cover and refrigerate. Wait a couple days if you can. I never do.

Oh, only use thoroughly frozen fish to eliminate the extremely slim chance of parasites.

If you've got some walleye in the freezer, try a pint sized jar. The Pickling recipe above will make about 2 1/2 quarts of fish.

The bonus is that the onions are every bit as tasty as the fish.

Don't make he chunks too big or the brines won't penetrate and "cook" the fish properly.

And I do cut the tips off my wings Mac. I either use them for  chicken stock or fry them up separately till they're crunchy.  Sal's Birdland used to do the tips that way. Don't know if they still do.

I do the same thing Bob.
Sometimes I'll collect and save the tips in a plastic bag in my freezer along with backs and other "interesting" parts of the chicken.
I'll collect them until I'm going to make stock or soup and then pull them out of the freezer.

I was only busting about the tips and cutting the wings and drums apart.
It's always easier to do them whole in a smoker or on a grill.
And I know TONS of WNY'ers who leave the tips on to use as a handle for when they are eating them.

Each to their own.
BTW, I prefer Ranch over BC dressing for them.
 :w00t:

And believe what or who you want about the origin of the chicken wing.
I heard they unearthed another tomb in Egypt last year with some pickled fish and chicken wings in it.

Looks fantastic Dom.
How good is it to be able to cook a meal for yourself. I see these stupid commercials for the 20 somethings who can't find their way to the grocery store, buying some internet service that serves them up dinner in a cup.....just pull it from the freezer and toss it in the blender.

Am I wrong... or is this just not right?

Got home this afternoon and made my Bride of 49 years a really nice Valentine's Day meal. Scallops and shrimp with Alfredo and angel hair pasta nests...and a side of asparagus.

all looks good guys
and rg your right on young generation not being able to cook
my boys are 34 29 and 25 but lucky for me they grew up on all homemade food as i was years ago and they caught the cooking "bug" i guess there always sending me pics of there meals they created the oldest has been allover the world for 8 years thanks to our navy and used to tell me all the foods he ate and said his favorite meat he ever ate was horse ! i know frowned on in our country but said over seas they eat every thing and youngest boy would never even use franks red hot when he lived home but he has lived in austin texas about 5 years now and cooks with all kinds of chili peppers even GHOAST chilis ,those are a bit much for me though

Nah...fresh from the can. Gotta make due. Had a terrible tomato crop last year. Had a blight that left us with just enough eating tomatoes. We did buy a peck or two of plum maters for sauce and salsa. Using the last jar for our nacho platter in a while. Sauce is long gone and replaced. At least I know what's in it.

I'll post the recipe. It's really delicious.

My son is a pretty good cook. My Daughter would just as soon never set foot in a kitchen for the rest of her life. Just the opposite of what I expected.

Yea, Donna too Bob.
Zero calories, tons of flavor, very versatile, and best of all little to no sodium if you make it yourself.

Donna goes thru a pint jar like that a week almost.

I have one of these that works great when I want to make scalloped potatoes and ham.
Slices both the ham and potatoes paper thin if I want to.
But yea, it's way better than slicing the taters by hand Bob.

Post by: SizeMatters on Mar 04, 2020, 09:12 AM
It's sort of similar to pickled herring but nowhere near as strong. I've been making this for many years.

It's simple. Brine the fish overnight. Make up the Pickling and jar it up. Keeps in the fridge for about a month I'd guess. Mine doesn't seem to last that long.

The brine is made with kosher or sea salt. Dissolve enough in Luke warm water to float an egg ( a raw egg in the shell).

Chunk up the fish and brine overnight. Some say you should use only distilled water to avoid some sort of mineral taste. I've used that and tap water and can't tell the difference.

Rinse the fish thoroughly and rest in fresh cold water in the fridge while you make the Pickling.

Pickling:
1 c. Cider vinegar
2 c white vinegar
1 c. White wine ( I like Pinot Grigio)
1 c. Sugar
2 tbsp Pickling spices.

Heat the liquids on low and desolve the sugar. Add the Pickling spices and set aside for a couple hours to cool.

Strain the spices.

Layer clean jars with sliced sweet onion and fish. Cover with the Pickling and poke a chopstick or wooden spoon handle into the jar to release the bubbles. Fill the jars to the top , cover and refrigerate. Wait a couple days if you can. I never do.

Oh, only use thoroughly frozen fish to eliminate the extremely slim chance of parasites.

If you've got some walleye in the freezer, try a pint sized jar. The Pickling recipe above will make about 2 1/2 quarts of fish.

The bonus is that the onions are every bit as tasty as the fish.

Rg
Wow!  Pickled a couple pykruls.  Great recipe!!  Do my best to make it a couple of days...... ;D  Will help to get me thru Mud Month and able to drag the boat out.

Makes amazing pizzas. One batch made enough for 6 personal pizzas. 3 in the freezer for another day.

Made ours Greek style with tomato slices marinated in olive oil with onions, garlic, basil
and oregano.

Topped the Naans with some of the marinade, Basil, parsley, oregano, salt and pepper. Then slices of the tomato, onion, chopped garlic, calamata olives, feta cheese, mozzarella and a chiffonade of spinach.

It was a crispy, chewy pile of flavors.

Glad I made an extra for my lunch at "work" tomorrow.

Brave souls...eating in an Asian restaurant.

Italian sausage patties on the Weber today. Picked up a couple nice ribeyes for my Borthday tomorrow and a small point cut corned beef for Tuesday.

Anyone done corned beef on the charcoal grill? I was thinking of doing it in parchment paper with carrots, onions, celery and potatoes.

I do corned beef on the grill all the time Bob.  But boil it to tenderize it first unless you have a smoker that can do it low and long.
I boil it about 4hrs and then finish it on the grill with a favorite barbecue sauce.
Or a home made honey mustard paste.
Toss in some wood chips to add a little smokiness too if you want.
Awesome

I found the recipe on Weber's site. Only tweak I made was to add chicken stock rather that water. Total cook for this 1.5 lb point cut was about 2.5 hrs at between 325 and 350. The winds came up towards the end of the cook so I put it in the oven for another 20 minutes at 350 to finish. Meat was 195 when I took it out. I wasn't especially thrilled with the cabbage done that way. I prefer it steamed through. It lost a lot of its texture. The potatoes and carrots were awesome.

Can't wait to make some Ruebens and I found a recipe for corned beef and cabbage egg rolls that we're gonna try this weekend.....if there's any left.

Mot near as much as me Ed! Made a batch of garlic herb Naan flatbreads yesterday.

It's a yeast bread that was mixed, kneaded till smooth and elastic, allowed to rise for a couple hours, then punched down and made into 2" dia. Balls.
(https://i.postimg.cc/njJNNDMX/IMG-3208.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/njJNNDMX)
I let the dough balls rest for a half hour or so then rolled them out into a Naan shaped breads.

(https://i.postimg.cc/y36t8CmB/IMG-3212.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/y36t8CmB)
Topped them with basil, oregano and minced garlic and rolled it in.
(https://i.postimg.cc/0zSWxyTD/IMG-3213.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/0zSWxyTD)
Into the cast iron skillet on medium high with a spritz of cooking spray. Cook till it bubbles up nice.
Flip it over and brown the bubbled side for a couple minutes.
(https://i.postimg.cc/YGrb1fhz/IMG-3214.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/YGrb1fhz)

Let them cool and freeze on a tray or dig in with a curry or red sauce.

They make great flatbread pizzas.

Allergies stink this time of year. Mine kick in with tree pollen. The maples have been popping around here so I've been sniffling. Given the current circumstances, it's not the most socially acceptable condition.

Here goes....Garlic Herb Naan Bread
1 c. Hot water (110*)
2 tsp active yeast
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
3-3 1/2 c. Bread flour

Dissolve yeast and sugar in hot water and set aside till frothy
Mix salt with flour
Add yeast mix to flour and mix to form a "shaggy" dough
Knead in the bowl until the ball picks up all the flour
Turn out onto a floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic. About 10 minutes or so.
*** this is where you need to feel how the dough is coming along. Add water if too dry and flour if too wet
Place dough in a greased bowl and turn to grease all sides. I just use cooking spray.
Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 2-3 hours in a draft free place. I put mine in my microwave or oven.

Remove and punch down.
Pull apart into 2" dia. Balls and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet
Let the dough balls rest ( proof) for 30 minutes or so until doubled in size again
Roll out into a Naan shaped bread.

You can add whatever you like at this point. We like minced garlic and herbs.

Just sprinkle over the top and roll them in with a rolling pin.

I use a cast iron skillet....because I have one. You could use any pan large enough.

A spritz of cooking spray and brown till bubbles form
Flip it over and brown/scorch the bubbles.

Cool and freeze on a sheet pan then bag.

They're really good fresh and warm with a curry or red sauce.

A couple notes ..you can make these as thick or thin as you like. I also make them round for bigger pizza. Lastly, you can use all purpose or bread flour. I don't think I could tell the difference.

In times like these, it's comforting to know we can make good food to feed our families.

Stay safe my friends.

We use these Bob instead of bread and rolls for sammies.
Our mix is a low carb thing Donna bought.
I know it's a mix but it's actually pretty decent and it's easy to use, so we tend to do it more often.
All good stuff guys.

I'll post a pic in a bit of what we use.

Got a pretty decent recipe the family loves.
This is the original mix. I added one ounce each onion and garlic powder to the mix.

8 oz. salt
2 oz. black pepper
1 oz. sage
put in ziploc and shake thoroughly, then use Ĺ oz. per lb. of meat

However, this time, for those that don't have scales, I also dumped the contents of each into appropriate measuring cups and come out with:

ĺ cup salt
Ĺ cup black pepper
Ĺ cup sage
put in ziploc and shake thoroughly, then use 1 tbsp. per pound of meat

You still have to have a pretty good idea of how much pork you have and the measurements are not as exact as weighing the ingredients (how coarse is the pepper ground, same with salt, etc.) but it should be in the ballpark.
Hope this helps!

Thanks 'dacker. The grinder is a 1hp from Cabela's i bought maybe 15 years ago. I gave up on using the grinder to stuff a couple years ago. It worked but was a pain. I got an 11 pound vertical stuffer from waltonsinc.com. Absolutely love it. I can do everything from 18/20mm sheep casings to 5" bologna casings. If you do a lot of sausage, I think it is an important piece of equipment as the grinder.

I get my casings from the Syracuse Casing Co. http://www.makincasing.com/. I love the pre-tubed sheep casings. Blowouts are almost nonexistent. Same with the hotdog and sausage ones too. I twist the links, one forward- one reverse.

Tried cauliflower pizza crust this weekend... Pretty good alternative to real dough, and didnt feel weighed down by tons of carbs like usual after eating pizza. Will be doing it again for sure.

Thanks, Made it from a random recipe found online, but they are all pretty similar... Place steamed cauliflower in the food processor with garlic, Italian herb seasoning, salt/pepper, parmesan cheese and a couple eggs. Form the mix on a pizza stone and bake at 450 for 15 minutes or until golden then top with sauce, cheese and however you like then back into 450 for another 10 minutes or so.
I use that cast iron pizza pan a ton, got it from sportsman guide.

Dom, you and your bride are really creative cooks. Kudos to you. It's what life thrives on......good, home made food.

I see these commercials for the delivered to your home, frozen meal in a cup and I get really angry. What happened? When did parents stop teaching their children how to cook and eat?

At times I'm glad I'm 70. I won't be around to see the  Soylent Green generations.

Thanks Bob . Nothing like you.. But we try..
Our son knows how to cook. Hes still quarantined in his house in long Island..
 We got him Hello Fresh  delivered 4 times a week. Good healthy food he has to cook himself.. Most meals only need a pan on the stove and an oven.  Meals are for 2 people but he hardly has left overs.
 Told him to not go to any stores down there.   He's in ground 0.  Bad thing is he lost his job at the bar and he cant pay his car or rent..  Hes in a borough of NYC on long Island..

Toss me a good bread recipe would ya Bob? Havent made a loaf in years....

3 cups bread flour (or all purpose)
1 tsp active yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 1/2 c. Hot tap water

Mix the dry, add the hot water and combine. It's a really shaggy, sticky, dough
Flour your hands and the bowl and roll the dough around the bowl to form a ball
Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 3-4 hours. I put mine in the oven. No heat obviously.

Sprinkle flour around over the top and around the sides of the bowl as you release the dough and knead gently to punch it down. No need to knead a whole lot. ( no need to knead.....I like that)

I bake mine in a round 3 quart Corning casserole lined with a sheet of parchment paper. Dutch oven or soup pot works just as well, but you'll have to pre heat a Dutch oven. Either way it needs a lid. Just tear off a sheet big enough to completely line the pot and plop the dough in the center. I think it adds some air space around the loaf. It ends up crispy all over.
The lid keeps the moisture in . Works better than a sheet pan with water.

Put the dough in the parchment lined pot , cover and let proof for 20 minutes or so while the oven is coming up to temp.

Bake covered  30 minutes at 400*
Remove the cover and bake 10-15 minutes depending on how crispy you like the crust.

Remove and cool on a rack (if you can stand it)

Super simple and makes a crusty artisan loaf every time. Great for toast, even better for French Toast......which is what we plan to have for supper tonight.

It takes about 5 minutes to make the dough. Even my Daughter ( whom I love dearly) can make this bread and she can't cook a can of chicken noodle soup.

I haven't tried it but I'm thinking this dough would make really good rolls or French Bread. Someday I'm going to pop for a clay Cloche.
Enjoy!

They lowered the upstream water and flooded the downstream side of the lock in town. Everthing is just thick muddy water. I've been skunked for the past 3 days.

Looks great Getem! Hey Bob, lets see how you do your bullheads. My 2 go to's are xvoo, Cajun then grilled and Seasoned flour and fried. Foil wrapped with lemon and butter/veggies is a distant 3rd.

Yesterday I deep fried them. I had oil in the fryer from  egg rolls that was still good. They were double dipped in House Autry Cajun Seafood breading.

I don't normally deep fry fish, but I didn't  want to waste the oil. My favorite is to filet the bullhead and grill them in parchment paper on the Weber. I put a pat of butter under the filets and top them with our home made salsa and Parmesan cheese. It's really tasty.

If you haven't learned the value of parchment paper for meats and veggies on the grill.....you need to. It imparts an awesome roasted flavor to anything you cook. Whatever  you're cooking, just wrap it up tight and cook indirect at 350-400*. I've done everything from asparagus to meat loaf this way. It's pretty much foolproof......not that y'all are fools mind you. But I can be at times. ;)

I make a mean Alfredo as well. But only about 3-4 times a year. My Bride loves scallops and home made pasta with Alfredo. But, it's a heart attack waiting to happen. So I limit our consumption.

Last night we had what we call "The Egg Thing"
Used turkey kielbasa in this one. You can use any kind of meat, sausage, bacon and any choice of vegetables. It's a "Whatcha Got" kind of dish.

Tonights fixins'...
5 whole eggs
1/2c. 1% milk
Salt and pepper to taste
Chiffonade of spinach
Diced red onion
Broccoli florets
Chopped sweet bell pepper
Grated extra ...extra sharp cheddar
(https://i.postimg.cc/CnDJnC9J/IMG-3280.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/CnDJnC9J)

Sautť the meat on medium low heat
(https://i.postimg.cc/gwkMtZ6k/IMG-3279.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/gwkMtZ6k)
Add the broccoli and onions
(https://i.postimg.cc/ph3qdccp/IMG-3281.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/ph3qdccp)
Cover on low heat to steam sautť the broccoli. You can add a couple tablespoons of water or broth to speed up the process
(https://i.postimg.cc/gnyJTY0t/IMG-3282.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/gnyJTY0t)
Add the peppers when the broccoli is tender and cook covered for a few minutes till the peppers are tender
(https://i.postimg.cc/YvbStbY1/IMG-3283.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/YvbStbY1)
Top with the spinach and cheese, cover and cook on low heat
(https://i.postimg.cc/WdCYQPzC/IMG-3284.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/WdCYQPzC)
Have a piece of fresh bread and butter while you're waiting
(https://i.postimg.cc/JDcTDDxC/IMG-3285.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/JDcTDDxC)
Cook covered on low heat until the egg is completely set about 10 -15 minutes. I just wiggle he fry pan around to see if there's any loose egg on top. You definitely do not want uncooked egg in this dish.
(https://i.postimg.cc/bDxzZT4Y/IMG-3286.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/bDxzZT4Y)
We like ours with a topping of home made salsa
(https://i.postimg.cc/yWhhF3Rk/IMG-3287.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/yWhhF3Rk)

I make enough from this recipe for my Bride and I to have leftovers the next day. It's one of the only things she'll eat as leftovers.

Bon' Appetite!

I had to think about it for a minute when I first looked. Then  my childhood expeditions in search of bullfrogs for frogs legs came to mind. There was a cow field near us with a creek running through it where my brother and I used to go frog giggling. More than once we had to flee the bull. He didn't like us at all and at 10 years old he looked like an Abrams Tank coming our way.

Bet those were really tasty. We're they fresh or frozen?

We were working on a bridge in the back roads in arcade few years back, the creek was loaded with bullfrogs,in my truck I had a 22 with no sight was my old trapping gun from years ago ,got it out and started popping them from bridge ( road was shut down) guy working with me wanted to try and he couldn't hit nothing! Well I look up and a state inspector was coming down bridge and asked us " what the hell you guys doing!" I thought we were gonna get in trouble,he laughed when I told and he asked if he could try!

Tonight was chicken pot pie with pillsbury flakey biscuit topping. Oh my Lord have mercy this was epic

(https://i.postimg.cc/hhzKpg7D/20200409-224945.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/hhzKpg7D)
First I plucked up enough courage to go get a rotisserie chicken from Walmart. Then I picked the meat off and made a stock from the bones. Strain the broth then sautee onions and baby carrots with a stick of butter. Add a half cup of flour and cook for another min or so. Add your stock and a cup of milk. Bring to a boil and add the chicken, pre cooked potatoes, and frozen peas. Use your favorite pie crust for the bottom, add the filling and cook for a half hour. Then later your biscuits on top and cook another 12 to 15 till brown. Let it set for 10 mins .... then get ready to have your mind blown....

That'll depend on the weather. I'm thinking I'll probably roast some boneless thighs in the oven. Or I have some really rich stock I made for a Veloute' a while back. I might even steam sautť the chicken (cubed) in that, add in the veggies and  thicken it with a roux.

Whatcha think?

I like the Steamed Idea, I was gonna do something similar with Chicken breast tenders, but the roasted chicken just gives it so much flavor. It was worth the risk going to Wally World for it. Strange experience there, they are herding customers through the self check out area, only 2 registers with cashiers open. another dozen self check out lanes closed. Seems counter productive to group everyone up like that.....

This thread is such a needed distraction form all the craziness going on out there..... Love to cook and share recipes with all of you. And its a perfect time to try new stuff, that was actually my very first Pot Pie despite my many years in a kitchen as a professional Chef and at home. Happy Good Friday and Whats on the Easter menu ? I got a spiral cut ham and I'll do some scalloped potatos, and 4 lobster tails for the wife and I. We usually do a family style dinner but given the times we will be alone. Much of the day will be spent on the phone and some video chats with family, it's gonna be rough not seeing everyone but it's the safe thing to do so we all agreed to distance.

  Big ham, mashed potatoes and the rest of the fixings.   Gotta have the rasin sauce and some cream corn..  probably a 7 layer salad and who knows what's for dessert.... ;D

I am making car pkgs for all 3 of my kids to stop by and grab off the back porch.
And I want to make split pea soup with the bone as I always do for them too.
(I have some left over rib bones I saved from months back that were in the freezer I will add to the stock)
But this way I can have their pkgs and their soup ready for them to eat tomorrow.
Maybe even a skype Easter dinner???

I'd rather have the mashed potatoes with dinner. We'll have a ham and scalloped potato casserole later in the week. We like to mix in a bunch of veggies with it  and make it a one dish meal.

Made the bottom crust for the pot pie, baked it and did the prep work for the filling. Roux is cooling, veggies are diced, potatoes cooked, chicken is cut up, seasoned a bit and resting in the fridge.

The biscuits are going to be a flakey buttermilk recipe. I'll cook the filling and let that simmer a bit while I whip up the biscuits.  Then put it together and pop it in the oven.

My mouth is watering already.

Anyway....my take on Chicken pot Pie.
Sautťed the chicken thigh cubes for a bit and added the diced celery and carrot and chicken stock and simmered for a while.
(https://i.postimg.cc/K4YhxQ8D/IMG-3293.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/K4YhxQ8D)

After it reduced a bit and the veggies were tender,I added the cooked potato cubes and the cooled roux to thicken the mixture. Oh yeah... and a chiffonade of spinach. We love spinach.
(https://i.postimg.cc/G9Sw2YBw/IMG-3294.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/G9Sw2YBw)
Made some super flakey buttermilk biscuits, filled the pre baked crust and topped with the biscuits
(https://i.postimg.cc/fJt40LX3/IMG-3295.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/fJt40LX3)
Baked at 400* for 15 minutes or so and then removed to baste biscuits with melted butter.

Roux....equal parts butter and liquid be it  milk or broth. Heat  the butter on medium heat until just frothy, then add the flour whisking constantly. You must cook the flour or the roux will taste raw. About 4-5 minutes on medium low heat is good. It can be left as a white sauce or browned for a deeper, more intense flavor for red meat sauces.

Roux is used to thicken a sauce. If the sauce is warm then the roux must be cold. If the sauce is cool then the roux must be warm.

Do some research on the 5 mother sauces. It'll change your life and make dinner time more enjoyable. It's not difficult. Just a learning process.

You are correct Bob, however the Roux may be added before the stock. You simply add the butter and flour to the sauteed veggies before you add the stock. Works gloriously.

What I did with this dish was sautť the chicken then add the stock and raw veggies. Simmering the veggies in the stock with the chicken  added a huge amount of flavor and reduced the stock as well. When I added the cold roux the whole thing just came together into a smooth bubbly mixture.

I'll have to work on a lighter version of this. It was incredibly delicious, but very heavy on calories.

If this stay at home thing doesn't end soon, I'm gonna weigh like a small piano!

 Perfect 🍽
Title: Re: Ya Know....We Need Another Cooking Topic!
Post by: drowndin dots on Apr 12, 2020, 02:49 PM
3 cups bread flour (or all purpose)
1 tsp active yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 1/2 c. Hot tap water

Mix the dry, add the hot water and combine. It's a really shaggy, sticky, dough
Flour your hands and the bowl and roll the dough around the bowl to form a ball
Cover with plastic wrap and let rise for 3-4 hours. I put mine in the oven. No heat obviously.

Sprinkle flour around over the top and around the sides of the bowl as you release the dough and knead gently to punch it down. No need to knead a whole lot. ( no need to knead.....I like that)

I bake mine in a round 3 quart Corning casserole lined with a sheet of parchment paper. Dutch oven or soup pot works just as well, but you'll have to pre heat a Dutch oven. Either way it needs a lid. Just tear off a sheet big enough to completely line the pot and plop the dough in the center. I think it adds some air space around the loaf. It ends up crispy all over.
The lid keeps the moisture in . Works better than a sheet pan with water.

Put the dough in the parchment lined pot , cover and let proof for 20 minutes or so while the oven is coming up to temp.

Bake covered  30 minutes at 400*
Remove the cover and bake 10-15 minutes depending on how crispy you like the crust.

Remove and cool on a rack (if you can stand it)

Super simple and makes a crusty artisan loaf every time. Great for toast, even better for French Toast......which is what we plan to have for supper tonight.

It takes about 5 minutes to make the dough. Even my Daughter ( whom I love dearly) can make this bread and she can't cook a can of chicken noodle soup.

I haven't tried it but I'm thinking this dough would make really good rolls or French Bread. Someday I'm going to pop for a clay Cloche.
Enjoy!

French onion Mashed, lisa agreed with all of you and we decided Scalloped could wait. A nice spiral ham, asparagus, lobster tails, and Bob's bread. It came out amazing I'm struggling not to eat it all at once! Lisa made us an Almond Cranberry pound cake for dessert. Look out couch here I come.

I could eat it again tonight but I'm in the mood for seafood.... So clams and scallops it will be. Or maybe a clam and scallop sauce over Cod.... Wish this weather would break I'd love some fresh fish and the only way to fish when it's snowing is in my Shanty IMO.

Donna couldn't find the traditional green peas at the market.
But they had yellow split peas.
Never used these so we tried them.
They were great.
More of a smoother somewhat buttery taste and texture.
Worked out well.
Gave Kelly and Chris a small container of it.  (Jeff hates split pea - more for the rest of us)
And I had enough for 2 meals and 2 containers for the freezer for future meals.

Not really. Dri them off, a quick dip in egg/ milk, bread with House Autry Cajun/ seasoned bread crumbs. I give them a spritz of some cooking spray and bake at 400* till the temp in the thickest part is 165 or so.

They really are tasty this way. I would have done them on the Weber but it's blowing 25plus and been snowing like heck on and off.

Crazy weather.

Wound up making a clam and scallop scampi, It was devoured before I could snap a pic but it's a pretty simple recipe. 1'st you make a nice scampi butter, I like to use salted butter softened with garlic, lemon juice, cilantro and hot sauce. Then I steam the clams in a nice white wine. As soon as they start to pop add the bay scallops. once they are open remove and de-shell them. Strain out the juice and let it settle for a couple mins. Scoop the clean juice off the top and discard the dirty  stuff. put the juice back in the pan and bring to a simmer, then fold in the butter slowly so it doesn't break. I like to add a corn starch slurry  to thicken it a bit. add the seafood and let it simmer for a min. Try not to over cook the seafood so have your pasta ready and pour it over and eat it while its hot!

Getting ready  for a loaded nacho platter in a while.

When my Daughter lived in Vegas, my Son in law used to have me send him Zwiegles White hots. There was a deli on Buffalo Road that would pack and ship them. There was no such thing as a white hot or a natural casing hot in Vegas.

2 stalks celery
2 potatoes
1/2 onion
1c spinach (chiffonade)
1c pasta ( your choice)
1 48 oz. chicken broth ( low sodium)
2 tsp chicken bullion ( or 3 cubes) for chicken base
1 can diced tomatoes ( I use flavored, like Basil, oregano or such)
Fresh garlic.......lots of fresh garlic......and more fresh garlic
1/2 lb of sausage ( or so)
Parsley, Oregano, Basil , pepper, salt and crushed red pepper to taste. ( go easy on the red pepper...you can always add more but you can't take it out)
2 tbs butter ( secret ingredient!)

Dice the veggies, mince the garlic, chop the spinach and set aside

Brown the sausage in XVOO and remove to drain

Toss all the veggies in to sweat on medium high heat adding broth 1/4 cup or so at a time

Season, Simmer and stir  the veggies  adding broth as it reduces  till they're almost tender

Add in the tomatoes and meat and simmer a few more minutes

Pour in the remaining broth and bring back to a simmer.

Add in the butter, spinach, chicken base and pasta, cover and simmer on low for a couple hours.

Take it off the heat and let it rest for a few hours before heating it up to serve.

Enjoy!

So I did a chicken noodle florentine today, been feeling a bit under the weather, not covid lol side effects from my surgeries still give me fits every once in awhile. Got up and started a stock right off the bat with a quarter split chicken I picked up last night. Couldn't and wouldn't go to multiple stores for a vidalia onion so I grabbed a red instead. Never used red in a soup before or much of anything really, I usually find them too bitter, but as I found out today if you take your time and get a nice caramel color they are, or are least this one is twice as sweet as a vidalia. I was in shock when I tasted the stock.

Home made dough this time. We were pleased with the texture. I think it could have been cooked at a higher temperature. Did it at 450*. Next time 500*

Very tasty anyway.

Eg
I'd 100 percent go to 500. What's the dough recipe?

stuff looking good as usual all :thumbup_smilie:

would like to start making pizza at home. cant wait for the dough recipe.  want to build a "rocket stove" powered heated bench for my fire pit, with pizza oven on top of the barrel.


I fried some dandelion flowers today for lunch.  mixed flour salt pepper and garlic powder, tossed flowers, in it and took them out.  used milk to make batter out of the rest of flour.  dipped them in batter and plopped them in bacon grease in cast iron skillet.  darn tasty snack.  kinda reminded me of fried cauliflower.

hope to have a turkey dish and hunting story soon ;)

She just uses farm fresh eggs and half and half whisked.. saute ham, pepper and onions, mix in eggs pour into a 1/2 preheated pie crust and bake...

White Clam Sauce my way!
The stuff,

(https://i.postimg.cc/MXjKRgNC/IMG-3344.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/MXjKRgNC)

I tin of chopped or minced clams with juice
XXVO
Parsely, basil, oregano, coarse black pepper
Romano, Parmesan or asiago  for grating.
Chopped fresh garlic
Half and half or cream
And ....a nice white wine. I love DaVinci Pinot Grigio. Some for the sauce.....some for the cook.

Heat about 2 tbsp of olive oil to medium heat
Add clams with juice, garlic and seasonings and bring to a good simmer.

Have a glass of wine

Reduce by about half and grate in some cheese.
(https://i.postimg.cc/QH0GwbT8/IMG-3348.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/QH0GwbT8)

Reduce further and add in a good splash of white wine to deglaze the pan

Have another glass of wine

 Continue  reducing and add in the secret ingredient.....about 1/4 c. Half and half. You can grate in some more cheese if you like.

(https://i.postimg.cc/jL5Zd057/IMG-3350.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/jL5Zd057)

When its reduced to a sort of thick sauce, ladle your pasta into the fry pan. Do not drain the pasta. Use a spyder or slotted spoon.  Add a small amount of the pasta water to the pan along with the pasta. The starches in the pasta water help thicken the sauce and the pasta will soak up all that wonderful flavor.

Simmer the pasta with the sauce for a few minutes tossing it to coat.

Garnish and top with a bit more cheese.....Oh....so good!

(https://i.postimg.cc/9wPJkZW5/IMG-3351.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/9wPJkZW5)

(https://i.postimg.cc/d77nYzq9/IMG-3352.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/d77nYzq9)

The leftovers are almost as good. Is it sacrilege to eat italian with chop sticks?

Bob, very similar to how I do mine, and you are 100 percent correct with the pasta water. Ever tried it with fresh Cherrystones? The trick is to pull them as soon as they pop, get em outta the shell and chop them cold. Add them just before the pasta and they wont get too tough.

Fred, you poor guy. How do you ever manage to fish with food like that at home  :whistling: :w00t: :w00t: :thumbup_smilie:

My eyes are open for a good stone as well. I had one but blew it up trying to cook a pizza on the Weber.

Tonight it was a half rack on the Weber.

(https://i.postimg.cc/sB7z8WhS/IMG-3354.jpg) (https://postimg.cc/sB7z8WhS)

1 1/2 hrs rubbed and wrapped in foil at about 275, then another hour at 325 or so with lots of good sauce.

I made use of my Amazin Smoke Tube for the cook with cherry pellets. Gave it a nice light smoke flavor.

Very odd to see a wild bunny out in the daytime. Its pretty big too. One good meal and a pair of glove liners. Nah....i couldn't do that.

yesterday I cooked up the dark meat from my turkey the other day.  most people just breast them and leave the rest.  I did too until I learned to cook it.  I take beef broth, onion, salt, pepper, rosemary and garlic in the pot with thigh n leggs.  ass enough water to cover meat.  put lid on and bring to boil.  boil this adding water as needed for 4 hours or until falling off bone.  if I gave you a piece you would swear it beef roast. everyone else does. lol

Thawed out some red sauce I made a ton of a while back that was a meat base from pork chops.
Served over some of those carb free fettuccini noodles we bought a few months back.
Tried to make a side salad but the lettuce had turned bad.

Donna is Italian and her family had MANY types of meat for the base at various times.
I think her mom used what was available.
Sometimes I will use seafood.
Not often, maybe once a year.
She enjoys that too.

Beef, pork, lamb, ox, venison, chicken, it's all good to start the base.

Also, I like a lot of veggies.
Green peppers, onions, garlic, spinach, and mushrooms.
Diced, not too small.
Even some zucchini or summer squash at times.

I grew up in an italian neighborhood. Love italian food ......period. Best man at my wedding was Nicolo Ristagno, who became an outstanding italian chef.

I make several kinds of sauce but my staple is what i call my "cooking sauce".  I can make many different dishes using it as a base. Its not cooked to death but left to finish as i like. To me its better than making mass quantities of a particular kind of sauce. With that, its what you get every time.

I like to change it up.

Tonight its grilled or maybe broiled chicken sandwiches......depends on the weather.

That Halibut looks sooooooooo goood!  It all looks good! Rosemary and olive oil eh? How does that work? So you just substitute the oil for the water or add it along with?  Looks like it rose perfectly.

Weather turned really nasty yesterday afternoon so i pan fried some breaded chichen cutlets and made sandwiches with lettuce, tomato and mayo, simple but one of our favorites.

Gotta deliver some of My Bride's peanut butter cookies to a few friends at Lowes who are still working.  Need to get a  pin for the new trailer hitch I installed on my car yesterday. The boat is getting closer to the water every day.

Bob she said she just added 2 table spoons of olive oil and a big tablespoon of rosemary to the mix.  It was good and so was the Halibut... ;)

  And back to the pasta gravy (sauce) nothing better than grilled chicken breasts and or grilled steak  in it.    8)

Done with cornmeal or something.
Here - read about it and then go buy some -

It looks like this when you cook it -

BLT's for dinner tonight. Neither of us were really hungry.

3:45? Thats about normal for me. I'm usually out like a light by 8:00-8:30. Been my sleep,achedule doe 30 years or more.

I was always at work between 5 and 6 am. It gave me a couple hours of quiet to get the day going before chaos took hold.

Mom turned 70 today and she wanted the lobster dinner Lisa and I made a couple weeks back, so what Mom wants Mom gets. Added shrimp this time. Lobster tail, Lobster ravioli, Lobster bisque, Bay scallops, and 16-20 Shrimp. 🤤🤤🤤

Lazy country style ribs on the menu today. Theyíve been sitting in brine since 0800. Will cook them slow and low, not sure if it be in the gas grill or Weber Kettle.

Also talked myself into a noodle salad side, with chunks of pepperoni, pepper jack cheese and cherry tomatoes.

Have some corn on the cob to cook up for a veggie.

Funny how a hot dog can be so regional. At Red Wing stadium  ( if they ever play baseball again) you can get a 1/3 lb Zwiegles dog, char broiled. They make them special for the ball park.

Definitley have to remember our military people. When my son was deployed in Afganistan I sent a bout 10 pounds of venison jerky to him . It was vacuum packed and he said as soon  as he opened a bag people came out from everywhere sniffing and going crazy. My sisters have  also sent LaNova's and Mighty Taco to him.

In my opinion, Charlie the Butcher has gone downhill a bit over the years. Agreed, very expensive.
I work in WNY and have had an apartment in Depew for 20 years. Mac were practically neighbors!!
BarBills is very good! Schwabels is very good too, but very expensive.
My all time favorite is Beef and Barrel in Olean.
Canít wait to get back out that way to get a beef on Weck!!
Title: Re: Ya Know....We Need Another Cooking Topic!
Post by: Mac Attack on May 20, 2020, 09:36 AM
Bar-Bills is becoming a chain.

B&B in Olean has always been really good.

Schwabl's I consider just like Charlie's - very good meat, but not heavy portions, and way over priced.  And the d**n place is really dark inside.  lol


One of the best roast beasts I have had in recent years is at the VFW in Angola on Rt5.
I dare you to finish it, very reasonably priced, and the meat is tasty and tender.

 Cool! Another addict in the making. My two best tips are ...get a chimney and cook indirect unless it's a steak!

Well....three tips.....the only thing you cook in tinfoil is ribs ( to start)  Do your veggies and even things like ham or meat loaf indirect and in parchment paper.  Way better flavor.

Oh yeah....Lowes has 40 lb packs of kingsford  on sale for $16.98. I picked up 2 this morning. It's 2 -20 lb  bags each.

I have only 1 complaint...well actually 2...
The ash pan is a pain in the ASH to get off and back on and the bolts that go through for the lid holder make the grate tricky to get back on when the charcoal is searing your hair off you hands and arms..
Other than that you canít beat those grills...and I can overlook the misses to have a durable charcoal cooking machine. I use mine 4-5 times a week and sometimes 7 days a week.

This is usually a big crowd weekend at our camp. Not so much this year with all the Covid crap. But we are going to eat pretty well!!
Doing some turkey hunting, staining the deck and planting the garden boxes....
I just picked up 3 pounds of Halibut, 4 pounds of flounder and 200 Rhode Island littlenecks. Also Got some chicken in garlic cranberry rub and some smoked wild turkey on the menu...Fresh picked asparagus and who knows what else!
Not sure who invited the black flies, but they are brutal!!
Have a great holiday weekend and please remember our war heroís!!!
Address please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sounds like a feast for certain

does yours have the 2 charcoal baskets on either side, an yes I got the chimney 😜

Yes but I rarely use them any more. I just dump whatever coals I'm using on the back side and cook mostly off direct heat. After all....that's BBQ!

Let us know when you pop for the rotisserie setup. I'll have to take some pics of the modifications I've made to mine.
I can use it for rotisserie or elevated grilling of large batches of foods like wings and ribs.

The thing is a cooking machine!

I started looking at the accessories already lol. Really like the wok, and pizza stone. Do you prefer the briquettes to the lump? I've been using the lump for the last couple years.

Lump is great for hot dogs, sausage , steaks or chops. You can do the same with briquettes and cook your veggies too. Just a little different timing. I use briquettes foe everything.

Lump is a much hotter cook. Tough in a kettle grill. Not good for anything you want to cook in Weber, except quick sear meats.

What is the snake thingy for?

Pile briquettes 4-5 deep around the outer edge of the fire grate . Start 6-8 coals and begin the burn from one end. It burns at a consistent temp for a very long time. I did 3 1/2 hrs at 250 and the ribs were really good. Once burned about half the coals. I shut it down and will be able to use the remaining coals another day.

Perch dinner tonight. My Bride wasn't enthused so she's on her own.

Perch, home made tartar sauce and a hearts of lettuce salad with vinegar and oil.

I'm happy!

Our lilacs did well too Fred. There's a long hedgerow across the road from our house that belongs to a dentists office.  Most of our bird population lives in that hedge.

My lilacs, the flowers are small and much less than usual. Grapes are just budding out. Blueberries look weak, we'll see?

Big T-Bone steak tonight!

Same here!! They donít sting unless provoked, but it seems they are the ones looking for a fight. They do pollinate so I hate to kill them, but they are super annoying.

If you're handy with wood,  YouTube carpenter bee traps. Or depending where you're located I can make you some.  I'm in North Tonawanda

I built a couple traps last year. They work! But that's not a cure. Had  21 in the trap yesterday. I spoke with the landlord a couple days ago and they're going to pull all the gutters and soffits, replace the damaged facia,  install metal soffit and cap the new facia with metal.

These bees are undeterred by any kind of sprays as far as I know unless you're able to spray directly into an already bored nest hole......which you don't want to begin with.

I would say multiple traps and plug any holes they manage to create.

They buzz around close to the ground when my Bride and I are sitting outdoors. I take great pleasure in swatting them with my old Squash raquette. I still have a fair backhand!

 I had an issue with carpenter bees , I bought  a powder and squirted it in the Holes , seem to do the job then plugged the holes in my cedar facia
 Bumbles have never been a problem , my lilacs are full of them , I get wasps and yellow jackets 😡

My son has them swarming at his house. He made traps and put them out, the traps work he catches most of them, but they still come back every year. It seems like there are more than previous year. Can't understand why he gets more when most were killed off, must be they breed before he catches them.

Actually, diatomaceous earth  will work to keep them from using existing holes but, you still have to fill them. They're persistent little buggers.

I have a bee house for my garden bees. There's 5 or 6 different species that nest there. They're solitary bees, don't sting and do a great job pollinating the garden and flowers.

The carpenter bees pay no attention to the house at all.
