ah, thanks, i'll edit it before anyone gets ill

here we have fry (frituren) and bake (bakken) -- baking requires a lot less oil/butter while frying only can be done in huge amounts of oil. putting stuff in the oven also is called baking.

quite confusing, huh??

i have tons of nice recipes but no idea how to translate them.. i'll post another and maybe you could check again? yes? please?

^of course!!

Sticklers for gourmet cooking in English might draw a distinction between "fry" and "sauté" -- frying uses much more oil -- but most people use "fry" for both.

ok here's another one:

baked pineapple



ingredients: (serves 4)
1 pineapple
1 tablespoon of honey
200 grams lemon ice cream
2 cinnamon sticks
2 rosemary branches
1 vanilla stick thingy

1. remove skin of pineapple, cut in 4, remove heart.
2. chop rosemary, cinnamon and vanilla
3. poke little holes in pineapple and put rosemary/cinnamon/vanilla mixture in
4. put in baking tray and cover with little bit of honey
5. bake 45 minutes in oven at 160c, turn pineapple every 15 minutes
6. serve with lemon ice cream
7. eat!


if you're a true hero, you put them in a frying pan and set the whole thing on fire with XO cognac after baking it-- but that's a bit dangerous. but very very nice.

"vanilla stick thingy" is much more poetic than "bean"

lime gambas with mango salad

ingredients (serves 4):

40 grams brown sugar
8 gamba prawns (big ones)
10 gr cumin seed
fresh curiander leaves
1 lime (you only need the juice of half a lime but you'll have to buy a lime anyway)
2 mangos
4 fresh mint leaves
1 red chili pepper
40 ml sesame oil
1 onion

1. carve the back of the prawns with a bread knife, stick prawns on sticks
2. chop pepper, juice half a lime.
3. mix one half of the chopped pepper with half of the lime juice, all of the cumin seed and all of the sesame oil.
4. marinate the prawns with this mixture for at least 10 minutes.
5. remove skin of mango, cut the mango into thin slices. chop onion, mint and curiander. mix mango, onion, mint, curiander, other half of the chopped pepper, sugar, other half of lime juice and put on plates
6. grill the prawns and serve on top of mango salad
7. eat & enjoy!

can also be made with grilled chicken on sticks if anyone at the dinner table doesn't like shrimp! takes longer to marinate though.

The only reason I haven't tried this recipe already is that I am so overcome with joy at finding it that I must lie down for a while.

Italian Fried Olives
- 2 cups medium-large green olives, pitted
- about 1/2 cup smoked mozarella bits (about 1/4"x1/2" in size or as big a piece you can fit into the whole of the olive)
- about 1/2 cup flour
- about 1/2 cup milk
- about 1 cup fine breadcrumbs or Panko
- 1 toothpick
- oil for frying

Directions
- Heat oil in a fryer or a large saucepan with about 3 inches of oil to 370 degrees.
- Stuff each olive with a piece of mozarella.
- Place flour, milk and breadcrumbs in 3 seperate small bowls.
- Using a toothpick, coat olive in flour. Tap off the excess flour. Dip olive in the milk. Then, coat olive thoroughly in the breadcrumbs. Set on a plate and repeat for remaining olives.
- Dip a flat sieve in the hot oil so that the breadcrumbs won't stick to it. Transfer about 1/3 of the olives to the hot oil using the sieve and fry for about 30-45 seconds. Drain on a plate covered with a paper towel. Repeat for remaining olives. Serve hot.
- Serves 4.

^ that sounds really good.

I have no official recipe, but I had a homemade Green Tea shortbread cookie today. The girl who made them just said to grind the tea up so it's very fine, and just put some in with a shortbread recipe. Very good. I will try it soon and let you know how it works out.

Recipes from bulletin.zefrank.com people that I made and ate since December 21st 2007:

Peef's Pom Salad
Zen's Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip
Sparticle's Nonsweet Yams (as elsewhere acknowledged)
Avalon's Apple Cake
Madasacutsnake's Butter Chicken
Not madasacutsnake's but she pointed me to it Crock Pot Beef Burgundy

Some of these recipes are not available in this thread... but some are! And all of them made me look good.

We make these every Christmas. My mom has the recipe, but here is one that is very close:

1 c. sugar
2 tbsp. shortening
2 eggs, beaten
1 c. molasses
1 c. milk, sweet or sour
4 c. flour
2 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. allspice
1/4 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. raisins (optional)

Cream shortening and sugar. Add beaten eggs, then molasses, then milk. Sift all dry ingredients together and gradually add to first mixture. Add floured raisins last. Drop from spoon on greased cookie sheet. Bake in slow oven, 325-350 degrees, for 10-12 minutes. (These are called Cry Baby because little ones "cry" for more.)

Does anyone have a great casserole recipe? It's for my very pregnant sister. She suggested chicken noodle. I said okay but would leave out the chicken.

^no casserole, sorry.. i'm not that much of a hero in the kitchen


frieda's favorite lazy saturday lunch:

cut 5 small mushrooms and 1 spring onion into bits and sautee in a bit of butter. sprinkle with a bit of garlic powder. or, if you're a little less lazy than i am, press half a clove and use this instead.

shove the sauteed mushrooms and onion on the side, add two small egs in the same pan and fry these. when one side is done, flip the eggs on their other side and cover the eggs with one thin slice of ham.

cover ham with a little bit of cheese (parmesan or emmenthal are best) and fold the eggs (ham and cheese on the inside). now let this fry for a minute to make the cheese melt.

eat on 2 slices of brown wholewheat bread. eat this with a big ripe tomato on the side and you will have all the proper enzymes to digest all of this!


mmmmmMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmm

For casseroles, potato bakes always get eaten and they contain no chicken. I have a new one that I don't want to type out for anyone until it's been tried in my kitchen, but I think Best of Bridge can probably handle the job.

These sound delicious, but I'm not sure I would recommend biting.

The original Nestle Troll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt


1 cup (2 sticks, 1/2 pound) butter, softened

3/4 cup granulated [white] sugar

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 eggs

2 cups (12-ounce package) NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

1 cup chopped nuts



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE in preheated 375-degree [Fahrenheit] oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

PAN COOKIE VARIATION: PREPARE dough as above. Spread into greased 15"x10" jelly-roll pan. Bake in preheated 375-degree [Fahrenheit] oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack.

FOR HIGH ALTITUDE BAKING (>5,200 feet): INCREASE flour to 2 1/2 cups; add 2 teaspoonfuls water with flour; reduce both granulated sugar and brown sugar to 2/3 cup each. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, drop cookies for 8 to 10 minutes and pan cookies for 17 to 19 minutes.

tomato yum yum

necessary:
- box of small, sweet tomatoes (cherry or tasty toms or something)
- fresh tomato sauce, or fresh tomato puree from your favorite chopping kitchen tool
- fresh basil (dried works but fresh is so much better)
- dried oregano
- can of anchovies filets in olive oil
- can of sardines in olive oil
- brown bread or other dark bread with lots of healthy bits.

pre-heat oven at 120c (10 mins)

wash tomatoes and cut them in half, but not completely through. the two halves are supposed to fold open and have to remain attached.

put the tomatoes in an oven dish, the inside facing upwards. fit in as many as you can.

cover every tomato with a layer of sardine stuff. on top of this, curl up an anchovies filet.

cover the fishy tomatoes with tomato puree and sprinkle with oregano.

completely cover all tomatoes with basil leaves.

put oven dish in oven, for about 5-10 minutes, depending on the size of the tomatoes. the skin is supposed to be still skinny, but if you bite one it should explode cherry-tomato-like with warm tomato stuff. eath with bread on the side.

don't overheat, or you'll burn your mouth very very badly!

eet smakelijk!
mmMMMMmmmm
