50750975_2661995193827030_8893054679169105920_n
Ingredients:
1/2lb pork sausage, 1/2lb ground beef, 1/2 chopped onion, can of stewed tomatoes, half of a small can of tomato sauce, half of a small tomato – chopped, chili powder, red pepper, cumin, garlic, black pepper, and salt.
Directions:
brown the meat and onions, add to pot with tomatoes and sauce, add spices to taste, simmer for awhile and let sit for a bit before serving. Add beans, peppers, other spices, whatever you like. Serve with toppings: cheese, chopped onion, crushed nacho cheese tortilla chips, sour cream and/or creme fraisch, etc.


Fried Rice with Minced Beef – Serves 3
Ingredients:
1/2 pound minced beef
iceberg lettuce, shredded
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 spring onions, finely chopped
2 bowls white rice, preferably leftover and reheated
2 tsp light soy sauce
salt, to taste
sugar, to taste

Marinade:
1 Tbsp light soy sauce
1 tsp cornflour
1/4 tsp chicken powder
2/3 tsp sugar
1 tsp water
1/2 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 tsp shaoxing wine
a pinch of pepper

Method:
Marinate minced beef with marinade for 15 minutes.
Heat oil over medium. Cook beef until 80% done. Set aside.
Add some oil again. Stir in beaten egg. Stir constantly until 60% done. Add rice, preferably reheated beforehand as it’d shorter the cooking time. Quickly stir fry evenly. Sprinkle salt and sugar to taste. When the rice is really hot thoroughly, add light soy sauce.
Toss in beef. Continue to cook and combine well. Add shredded lettuce and spring onion until softens. If you’d like to taste the crunchy veggie, then don’t fry too long. Serve hot.

Combination Fried Rice:

First, when it comes to fry rice, we have to use leftover rice because you don’t want any soggy rice. Mixing with all the other vegetables and meat, the rice would be just right, not so dry or soggy.
Second, use as many favorite ingredients as you like. There’s no only one rule to combine ingredients for fried rice. So, be creative and enjoy whatever you like.
Third, the right order is to pan fry eggs, then followed by rice. Many people make the mistake to put in rice first, then pour in whisked eggs. This would make the rice soggy and mushy by absorbing the egg mixture.
Last but not least, don’t stir fry all ingredients with rice in the first place.You have to sauté the meat and vegetables separately. Then combine with the fried rice when it’s nearly done. Simple and easy

Ingredients:
3 bowls (leftover steamed) white rice
1 onion (sliced)
1 sausage (cubed)
1 slice of ham (cubed)
6 mushrooms (sliced)
1/2 cup green peas
3 eggs, whisked

Seasoning:
1 tablespoon (light/reduced sodium) soy sauce
pinch of black pepper (season to taste)
pinch or punch of salt (season to taste)
granulated sugar (season to taste)

Directions:
Blanche the green peas in boiling water for 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Cut the onion, sausage and ham into small cubes. Slice the mushrooms.
Heat 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and sauté onion over medium heat. 
Add mushrooms, cook until tender.
Add green peas and sauté for 2 more minutes. Set the vegetables aside.
Heat pan over medium heat, sauté sausage and ham until light brown. Dish up.
Clean the pan with a kitchen (or paper) towel.
Add 2 tablespoons of oil, pour in whisked eggs. When the egg mixture is half-way cooked through, add in leftover rice. Stir well for about 10 minutes on high heat.
When rice is evenly heated and mixed with the eggs, add the onion, green peas and mix well. Add the sausage and ham. Stir all ingredients together.
Add salt, sugar and black pepper.
Drizzle the soy sauce over the rice and toss. Season to taste.

Tips:
Use whatever greens you like: capsicum, celery.
Add other meats: chicken, shrimp or pork.
Preheat the leftover rice in the microwave before adding, it will shorten the cooking time.
Enjoy the fried rice!

Ashley’s Easy Awesome Everyday Fried Chicken

– Figure about one boneless chicken breast per person
– Filet each breast lengthways three time (four for thicker breasts)
– In one large bowl combine milk and about 2 or 3 eggs and wisk until mixed
– For breading use a brownie pan. In the pan combine about 3/4 cup of bisquik per breast along with your choice of seasonings. Use salt, pepper, garlic, ground sage, rosemary and some celery seeds. Add red pepper, cayenne, chili powder, or other spices to taste.
– Dip each filet into the milk and egg mix, then generously coat filet with breading mix and then fry untill golden brown.

For best results fry the chicken in a wok.
This chicken makes great strips that retain their juices.
You can also use the chicken for sandwiches, sliced in a salad, and may other things.

4 sq. unsweetened baking chocolate
2/3 c. butter (NOT margarine!)
4 eggs
2 cups white sugar
1 1/2 c. unbleached flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

Directions:
Use a 13″x9″x2″ pan; make sure to grease the pan well!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Melt butter and chocolate over double-boiler, or on very low flame
(if you use the low flame be sure to check
to make sure the chocolate does not burn as it is melting)
While the butter & chocolate are melting, sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together on a piece of waxed paper (yes, it is still available in most supermarkets).
Once the butter and chocolate are totally melted, remove from heat.
Slowly beat in the 2 cups of sugar.
Once all the sugar has been incorporated, add 2 of the eggs.

Add the other two eggs, then the remainder of the dry ingredients.

Fiesta Ice Pops
icepoprecipecard5


Candied Orange Peel
Strips of orange peel cooked in sugar syrup until they are soft and chewy. 
They can be sugar coated or dipped in chocolate for extra fun.

Ingredients:
3 Oranges – navel or Valencia
2-1/4 Cups Sugar (granulated)
1-1/8 Water
Sugar for coating and/or Chocolate for dipping (optional)

Directions:
Prep and Blanche the Peel:
Rinse  and clean three navel or Valencia oranges.
Cut the top and bottom off each orange. Score the skin into quarters.
Remove the skin (both peel and pith). Cut into strips about ¼” wide.
(eat or save the peeled oranges for other use)
In a medium saucepan, place the strips of peel and cover with cold water.
Blanch the peels: Bring the water to a boil. When the water boils, drain the water from the orange peel strips. Rinse in fresh cold water. Repeat at least two more times.
Blanching removes any bitter flavor in the orange peel. (TIP: Blanch the peels 4-5 times).
Drain the water and place the peels in a bowl. 

Sugar Syrup:
Use the same saucepan, and whisk together 2-¼ cups sugar and 1-⅛ cups water.
Bring the mixture to a simmer over a low heat.
Cook 8-9 minutes at a constant simmer, adjust the heat, and make sure it doesn’t boil.
Add the orange peel. Cook about 45 minutes to 1 hour on medium-low heat, until the white pith is translucent (not white), adjust heat as needed – maintain the simmer, keep from boiling.
Swirl the pan occasionally to make sure that all of the peels get covered with syrup.
DO NOT STIR, this will cause crystallation.
Drain the cooked syrup from the orange peels – (set aside and save for another recipe).
Toss the peels in a bowl of sugar to coat, or dip in melted chocolate and let set. (optional),
Transfer to a drying rack. When they are dry, store them in an airtight container.


Salted Caramel Pretzel Bark

Ingredients:
2 sticks of butter
1 cup of light brown sugar
1 reg. bag of pretzels (you’ll use about 3/4 of the bag)
12 ounce bag of chocolate chips
Sea salt – ( I use our coarse sea salt with our grinder)

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 400.
Line a large bar pan with parchment paper, cover with pretzels
In a medium saucepan melt the butter over medium-low heat. When it begins to bubble add the brown sugar. Stirring occasionally let the butter/sugar mixture meld together and brown. This should take about 3 minutes. Do NOT let it boil, you will have sticky goo that is no good. When you have a nice, brown caramel pour it over the pretzels, slowly and evenly. You can then use a spatula to spread it out, you have to work quickly and gently. It hardens fast so even pouring is the best method.
Bake the sheet for 5 minutes.
Remove the sheet from the oven and sprinkle the whole bag of chocolate chips evenly over the mixture.
Place back in the oven for about 45 seconds. If you let it sit there too long the chocolate will burn.
Remove from the oven and use a silicone spatula to evenly spread the chocolate over the top.
Sprinkle with sea salt and refrigerate for a minimum of 1 hour.

March 26 is National Nougat Day!
Celebrate the soft and chewy or hard and crunchy candy! 
Nougat is made by whipping egg whites with honey or sugar, roasted nuts, and sometimes candied fruit. Traditional nougat is made with almonds and honey and has been a around since ancient Rome. Enjoy it on its own as candy, combine it with chocolate and/or other flavorings.

There are three basic kinds of nougats:
White nougat is made with beaten egg whites and honey
Brown nougat is made without egg whites, has a firmer and often crunchy texture
Viennese or German nougat is made with chocolate and nut praline

In Italy, they call it torrone.
In Spain, nougat is called turrón.
The United States version is made with corn syrup and called divinity.
In the United States, modern candy makers use a different recipe.
They use a mixture of sucrose and corn syrup mixed with egg whites, gelatin, or hydrolyzed soy protein. It is a common and widely used ingredient because it is inexpensive and used as a filler instead of more expensive ingredients.

Jelly Bean Shot

Ingredients:
1/2 oz Blackberry Brandy (or Grenadine)
1/2 oz Anisette (or Sambuca, anise-flavored liqueur)
1/2 oz Southern Comfort

Directions:
Pour Brandy (or Grenadine) into a tall shot glass
Float the Anisette (or Sambuca) on top of the Brandy
Float the Southern Comfort on top of the Anisette
Serve and enjoy

How to “Float” (Bartending 101):
Hold a bar spoon upside down over the drink and rest the spoon’s tip on the inner edge of the glass, just above the top of the liquid. Slowly pour over the back of the bar spoon and onto the top of the previous ingredient. Move the spoon up as the liquor level rises.

The key is in the three layers of liqueurs: poured on top of each other in order with the heaviest on the bottom and the lightest on top. “Float” the liqueurs by pouring them over the back of a bar spoon. This creates a pretty triple-layered shot. The ingredients have specific densities that make the separation easy. The greater the density difference, the more defined their separation. Density is determined by the sugar and alcohol content. Grenadine is one of the heaviest mixers used for cocktails and will almost always sink to the bottom of the glass, even if it is the last ingredient added.
NOTE: The Anisette will give the drink a “black licorice” jelly bean taste.

Jägermeister is a type of liqueur called Kräuterlikör (herbal liqueur).
You can substitute it for the Anisette/Sambuca or just do a shot or two of Jäger!
“Jägermeister is a digestif made with 56 herbs and spices. Developed in 1934 by Wilhelm and Curt Mast, it has an alcohol by volume of 35%. The recipe has not changed since its creation and continues to be served in its signature green glass bottle.” – from wikipedia

FLASHBACKFRIDAY!  August 2017

Wanted to share my good fortune: saw a Craigslist ad for Free Cookbooks and responded to it. A professional chef and food stylist was downsizing and giving away some of her cookbooks… well we went and picked up 6 boxes of truly amazing books (well, we had to box them up first). the entire Time-Life series with all the supplemental recipe books, lots of big hardbound famous chef books, culinary arts, Williams-Sonoma, anthology collections bound into yearly editions, weird foreign cookbooks because she had to learn as she was styling, and much more! And that’s not all because when we got there, there was also a bunch of stuff on the front porch that she didn’t sell at the garage sale and she told us to help ourself. All kinds of kitchenware, glassware, cookware, utensils and a whole box of vintage and antique kitchen items too! Here’s one small box of books:

This Sunbeam T-9 that we cleaned up a little was one of the fantastic pieces:

Yes, and it gets even better:

Cool? You can say that again!

There was also a bunch of “new in the box” glassware, vintage hats, clothes, toys & games, tools, a MCM rolling cart (that is now a side table), a Cosco stool in good condition, vintage golf clubs with bag, and more!
