Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

These can be done with coca-cola in the reicpe to great effect. Experiment with the butter type as well.

Yes - Coke. It adds a nice flavor to sit with the chocolate flavors - makes the intensity of the chocolate a bit milder yet it's not a less flavorful treat.

I never used mine till I found this recipe. Also works really well for making all kinds of dal (Indian lentil soup type things?) and soups of all sorts really. Works well for short ribs too. I've also successfully used it to confit duck at home once.

http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/2012/10/meat-lovers-no-bean-chili-recipe.html

I love beans but can't cook them in the house for various convoluted reasons. This is also good -- and the site it's on is an excellent resource, as well.

http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/hot-fudge-spoon-cake-00420000002836/

The most ludicrously orgasmic cake I have ever made or eaten, though it doesn't keep well (as long as your family has taste buds and stomachs, that should definitely not be an issue). I make this in a smaller round crockpot so I'm not completely sure it'd translate to a larger model, but it is good enough to be worth a try.

I just have a bit of fanatical streak in regards to food being made to look like things, ever since I saw this Spaniard on No Reservations spend like seven hours to turn blended strawberries and gelatin into something that was basically indistinguishable from a strawberry, and then proceed to get the sloppiest onscreen verbal blowjob ever. Carry on though, it's my issue.

Post Re: This Is The Cooking Thread.

So, last night I attempted to make onion soup from scratch for the first time, and it actually came out rather well. I went looking for the simplest recipe on the Internet, due to a conspicuous lack of ingredients/time, but the end product was surprisingly layered:

Quote:
1 medium onion
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon flour
2 cups broth - beef is best but chicken or vegetable will do
1 cup white wine - or water
Salt and pepper to taste


Peel and finely slice the onion into half moons. Slice these in half again. Heat the butter over medium heat, then add the onions. Stir and cook over medium heat until they are slightly caramelized and soft - about 6 or 7 minutes. Don't let them get too dark or the soup will be bitter.

Add the flour and stir until the onions are coated. Add the broth and wine, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer and cover the soup. Let it simmer for another 10 minutes or so, lifting the lid at the end to let it reduce a little. Taste and season. Serve with fresh grated cheese and good bread.

Post Re: This Is The Cooking Thread.

Found a lovely recipe for Farfalle with asparagus and smoked salmon in a light cream sauce. It has a beautiful Italian name I will not attempt to butcher.

Bunch of asparagus
1/2 LB Farfalle
1 package smoked salmon
pinch of nutmeg
3 tbsp butter
1/3 cup of cream
black pepper

tarragon or basil.

I found the tarragon offered a more pungent sort of flavor to offset the lightness of the dish.

Bring pasta to a boil in salted water. When the pasta is halfway to al dante, add the chopped asparagus to the pot. Meanwhile, melt the butter with the cream and bring to a simmer without allowing it to bubble up. Add the nutmeg and black pepper. Drain the pasta and asparagus and stir in the cream sauce. At the last second and off the heat add chopped tarragon and smoked salmon. voila!

It's also pretty good cold. I made a whole lot of it and ate it for two meals, stays fresh.

Yeah, tastespotting has always been a gold mine for me. I use it a lot more now, since investing in this cute little set of measuring cups:

Always used to go by grams before, and ignore any recipes where cups were involved.

Will look through my bookmarks for recipes!

Chicken thighs, lots of cheapish veggies, the biggest expense is prolly sundried tomatoes and they are skippable:

Post Re: This Is The Cooking Thread.

I made these Chard and Saffron Omelettes for dinner tonight. I've generally been cooking quite a few of this guy, Yotam Ottolenghi's recipes of late. This beet, leek and walnut salad has become a staple (although I leave out the walnut oil coz don't have and switch between pomegranate and grapes depending on what I have around). Someone gave me his book, Jerusalem, for Xmas last year and I took it off the shelf a few weeks ago and haven't put it back. I keep finding interesting recipes in it and am yet to be let down. A lot of them are online as well and all the ones I've tried work really well despite eliminations/substitutions.

Cooked a gumbo tonight. Gumbo's one of those dishes that's always fun to put together - because outside of the base (the roux, File powder, I tend to skip on Okra.. don't like the vegetable) it's such an admirably flexible little* dish.

*=of course, by little, I mean enough to feed 6 people with leftovers. :p

Slow cookers/crock pots are pretty much great.

30 minutes of prep, cook it during work, have dinner ready when you get home. Ideal.

We're making: Prime Rib with sour cream horseradish sauce, and red wine jus, garlic mashed potatoes, lemon brussel sprouts, yorkshire pudding, cheesecake with raspberry glaze and vanilla whipped cream for dessert. Oh, and some shrimp and a cheese plate for starters. Fingers crossed it all turns out!
