Holiday Recipe Blogging

As usual, I'm on the lookout for new recipes to bring to my adopted-for-a-day Thanksgiving dinner with my friend's parents. Last year, the Anchoress and I -- as well as our readers -- mixed it up exchanging recipes.

We're at it again. This year she's sharing Mashed Turnips and Carrots. I'm suggesting something put in comments by our very own Angel Em last year that was YUMM-O:

PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE DIP

8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup (packed) light brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons orange juice
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. cloves

Throw it in a bowl and stir. So easy even this moron can do it. Serve with gingersnaps for dipping during the game. I also like it with a spoon. Or fingers. It's just good, okay?

So what do you got? The Anchoress is always on the lookout for veggie recipes. I'm looking for more things to satisfy my sweet tooth.

As I wrote last year, this is most definitely an opportunity to flame your fellow commenters for having such poor taste as to actually consume the three-bean salad.

Somebody posted a pretty simple cheesy biscuit recipe earlier this week, if you're gonna get your carb on that's the way to do it. I'd throw in some jalepenos, too. And maybe a little sausage or bacon.


mmm, kolaches

3 OK, you've convinced me. I had thought about Anchoress's pumpkin bread pudding, but this one has the wonderful advantage of being easier.

My family, for the record, banned three-bean salad years ago. Negotiations are underway in regards to deviled eggs.

5 This butternut squash recipe I found online the other day turned out pretty well, and was easy to make: http://tiny.cc/wJfZN. Technically avegetable, but tastes like candy. It would probably be even better with sweet potatoes.

10 Here's my recipe for an actual pumpkin cheesecake.

Posted by: physics geek at November 25, 2009 12:43 PM (MT22W)

11 How about this one, a really sweet veggie recipe?

3 sweet potatoes, the orange kind.
1 stick of butter (don't necessarily use is all)
1 cup brown sugar.
salt and pepper.

This takes cooking, but very worthwhile.
Peel the potatoes and slice lengthwise, about 1/4'' thick slices.

In a heavy deep pan over medium heat, melt enough butter to cover bottom of pan.
Then put down a layer of potato slices, dot with more butter, sprinkle generously with sugar and a dash of salt and pepper.

Repeat these layers until you've used up all the potatoes. It's ok if you haven't used up all the butter and sugar, of course feel free to do so.

Cover the pan and cook on medium heat for about half and hour, you will want to check from time to time if the slices are soft. When the bottom layer is, use a spatula and flip the order. Yes, the slices will fall apart, who cares! Once on the plate next to the turkey it doesn't matter how perfect the slices look, it matters that they are incredibly yummy.

Enjoy and a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

18 How timely! Today is "Thanksgivingus" in the Y-not household. Thanksgivingus is akin to Festivus (minus any areligious our anti-religious sentiments).

We have always lived far (or very far) away from our families, so we never got in the habit of traveling for T-day. The two times we did so were unmitigated travel nightmares. This has meant that Thanksgiving, although lacking in the happy feelings associated with seeing family, is blessfully devoid of the annoying and upsetting components of the family get together. (In my family's case, these are considerable.) So when friends and colleagues are telling us with some angst about their travel and dinner plans, we can sit quietly and sympathetically in the knowledge that we won't have all that stress.

In recent years we've added an innovation: we have our turkey on Wednesday. That way I'm not struggling with cooking a big meal while the parade and football games are on. Instead, Thanksgiving-proper is spent in our jim-jams enjoying left overs.

It's bitchin'.

Now I'd love to provide recipes, but unfortunately this year Mr. Y-not foolishly decided to have a check-up last week and being a 40-something desk-jockey, this of course resulted in a finding of high glucose and high triglycerides. So last week we started a diet and today I am trying to modify traditional recipes to make them low fat, low carb, high fiber. Not that fun...

So perhaps a la Seinfeld this year we will add the "airing of the grievances" to Thankgivingus!

;-)

21 In terms of a recipe, this is so simple but perhaps some have not heard of it.

Cut butternut squash (acorn works as well) in half. Remove seeds. Dab in some butter (or, alas for me now, some Benecol Light) and a sprig of fresh rosemary. Wrap tightly in foil. Put on grill at medium-high heat. Roast until tender (15 minutes'ish, depending on size).

Very nice (if you like rosemary).

22 A really good appetizer (not just for Thanksgiving) which due to the ingredients soaks up/goes great with beer is "Romaki" ( unsure of spelling).

Get a package or two of bacon and cut the slices in half. With each half slice, wrap it around (1) a whole water chestnut and/or (2) a large smoked oyster and pin it together with a wooden toothpick. Place them on foil bended up around the edges(because it is messy due to the grease and cleanup is easier), shove in the oven and bake at 375 for a half hour or so until the bacon is well cooked (I like it really crispy). They are killer and company will be impressed.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

27 Yummo. Gimme that vodka! I couldn't think of a veggie recipe anyone wouldn't already know, but I figured those looking for finger foods would enjoy this one:

Ham and chicken cream cheese roll ups

1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon garlic powder or granulated garlic
1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke (mesquite or hickory whatever you likes)
dash ground black pepper to taste
ham, chicken, whatever flavor wafer thin lunch meats or thin sliced deli meats you like (I don't give amounts because it depends on how thin you spread the cream cheese)

Using a mixer, whip the cream cheese until soft, then add the garlic, smoke and pepper and whip until completely mixed.

Spread the cream cheese mixture VERY thin on slices of the ham or chicken, then lightly roll the meat up to make a pencil-thin roll. Continue this process until you run out of cream cheese. Place roll ups on a plate, cover completely, chill and serve.

This recipe sounds really weird, but try it. Make sure the cream cheese mixture is VERY soft when you spread it, allow it to come to room temp if necessary or you'll rip the meats. A bit labor intensive, but worth the effort. They won't last long so you might need to double the recipe.

Oh... and they go VERY well with ripe olives which have been served at the end of your fingertips.

32 This recipe looks great. I will give it a try.

BTW, I bagged my first Hobo last weekend. As I was rifling through its pockets for a souvenir, I came across an authentic Hobo 3 Bean Stew recipe. I might try that too. Recipe follows.

HOBO 3 BEAN STEW

3 Beans (Beans sold individually at Whole Foods/Wild Oats type stores)
1 Tablespoon water
Pinch of salt

Throw beans in a spoon. Pour water into spoon. Beans should be covered with water. Simmer over trashcan fire for 10-15 minutes or until beans are tender. Season to taste. Serve.

36 Take your Thanksgiving leftovers (turkey, gravy, stuffing, ect... Be creative!), put them in a piecrust, and top it with the leftover mashed potatoes. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
Kicks ass. I usually use three pie crusts and line a larger baking pan. Be sure to prepare enough leftover potatoes (I know you boiled those potatoes in stock, NOT water,and I'm sure you prepared them with plenty of cream cheese, salt, pepper,and REAL butter, right?).
If your filling mixture is too dry, because your short sighted ass made too little bird gravy, add some Campbells cream of chicken soup.

39 If you have family coming over that annoy the crap oout of you I suggest the following:
10:00 AM 2 shots of Vodka
11:00 AM 2 shots of Vodka
12:00 PM Eat something quick and ad 1 more shot of Vodka
1:00 PM Start making the holiday drinks. Sample heavily!
2:00 PM Appetizers are coming out, have a small plate then have another shot of Vodka.
3:00 PM Consume at least one Holiday drink rapidly and consume everything you can on the dinner table.
By this point they should be looking at you like you are crazy.
4:00 PM Pop a squat in the bathroom, wash your hands and then pour a glass of vodka to go with desert.
5:00 PM Eat the dessert pie without a fork, the family you can't stand will leave.
5:30 PM Your wife will be pissed, not talking to you and you can finish watching the game without interruption
6:30 PM Pass out in your own vomit, not that I do, but whatever works.
Next Morning, tell your wife you had a great time and you can't wait until Christmas

1 full year of no family coming over. AWESOME!

42 I have questions, not a recipe. It's my first time cooking the feast and I have a fridge full of foods thawing and marinating. Now I'm having second thoughts. With potatoes and stuffing and gravy over everything, my gut tells me that string beans steamed to a bright brilliant green are better than that casserole with the french fried onions, plain mashed yams are better those drowned in butter and brown sugar and field greens can live without the smoked pork neckbones. Plus, the six-ounce can of cranberry sauce is sufficient for five people and most of the 16-ounce can would go to waste anyway.

Am I taking too many liberties here? Will this cost me points on the citizenship exams later?

43 My advice is this...unless you are an ubermoron like myself and you make a stck Today, for Tomorrow's cooking...your stock pot will be about the ONLY clean vessel in your kitchen come the 'dishes' portion of tomorrow's feast.
Before you start your dishes, take ALL of your leftover bones and carci from your bird and get a stck rolling on the stovetop. Throw in some Turnips, Carrot, Garlic and Onion along with a Sachet of leftover herbs and a handful of peppercorns. Get it up to a rolling boil and let her simmer through the evening.
Before you go to bed, remove the solids with a tong and drain them through a collander (over a bowl)to save all the liquid/stock that drain while you do this. Next, strain out the small solids using a strainer and cheesecloth. I do this into a seperate and smaller stock pot or pasts pot (To fit under my grill cover - see below).
Then, drop a lid on it and throw it outside on the Barbecue grill and let it cool rapidly. If you are in the Northern tier, and it is under 40 at night, you can leave it over night.
Then next day it will look like a jelly if left outside near freezing, but it will be a super-concentrated super rich Turkey Stock for Jambalaya, Gumbo, Pot Pie, Gravy's, Sauces, etc once reheated. So use, or package and freeze.
That Turkey gave its all for you...give it some respect and get out every ounce of tasty goodness it's got!

Enjoy!

Am I taking too many liberties here?
Kind of think the yams loaded with butter and brown sugar are the way to go, and homemade cranberry sauce (boil cranberries in simple syrup) is way easy. Other than that, the greenbeans are good. Neckbones are for stock to make the gravy.

It's been an unusually warm November here in the Midwest, but my favorite drink on a chilly, brisk Thanksgiving day is hot chocolate:

* 1/4 cup unsweetened, powdered cocoa. (Hershey's is OK, but a good Belgian cocoa is *much* better.)
* 1/2 cup sugar
* A dash of salt (just a little)
* One quart of skimmed milk
* Whipped cream (lots)
* Cinnamon
* Amaretto

Mix the cocoa, sugar, and salt with maybe a quarter-cup of warm warm water, to make a paste, then stir in the skimmed milk and warm slowly. I liked skimmed milk because it makes for a more chocolate-y drink, but use whatever you prefer.

When the chocolate is warmed, pour into cups; be sure to leave plenty of room in each cup. Then add a slug of the Amaretto: its almond flavor complements the chocolate nicely. Finally, heap whipped cream on top, and finish with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Salud!

62 For a Pumpkin Cheesecake filling, add to Gabe's recipe:

1 more 8ox package cream cheese (for a total of 16 oz) @ room temp

3 Eggs

1 Egg Yolk

1/4 cup sour cream

Replace the brown sugar in Gabe's recipe with 1 1/2 cups regular sugar

Blend everything in a bowl using a hand mixer until creamy smooth.

Preheat oven to 350.

CRUST:

1 1/2 cups finely crushed graham crackers

1 tablespoon cinnamon

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

1 stick of butter

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Pour the crust mixture in a 9-inch
springform pan and spread across the bottom and slightly up the sides
using your hands. Wrap the bottom of the pan with aluminum foil tro make sure the butter
in the crust does not leak through and end up on the bottom of your
oven. Now, pour the cheesecake filling into the springform pan. Bake @ 350 for 1 hour. IMPORTANT: When the 1 hour is up, turn off the oven and using a butter
knife, run the knife around the sides of the pan gently to release the
cheesecake from the sides, then CLOSE THE OVEN and let the cheesecake
cool inside for 1 hour. This step will help make sure that the top of
the cheesecake doesn't split when it is cooling.

I am trying to modify traditional recipes to make them low fat, low carb, high fiber.Well then, what's the point?

I know, I know!

I guess the point is keeping Mr. Y-not away from full-blown diabetes and having him around for another 25 years.

The dieting hasn't been too bad. Fortunately, we were already on a game meat kick and we both like fish and veggies, so our fat intake hasn't been that bad except for all of the exciting traditional style cooking I'd been doing the past several months... a dab of butter here, a splash of cream there. I feel pretty guilty about it.

67 I am allergic to cinnamon which reminds me of a story... for my last birthday, my 10 year old son brings me a apple pie that he and the ex made. I am thinking, apple pie, yummy... except for the cinnamon. Maybe she forgot since it has been about a year since the divorce trial and all. The kid then says there is not that much cinnamon in it so you should be fine. Guess they did not forget.

68 venison carpachio

smoked or raw venison eye roast (don't do a lot, mos people will pass)
sauce #1 - horseradish, dry mustard, pepper, salt, mayo, lemon juice to taste
sauce #2 - brown sugar, hot paprika, cinamon, lemon juice, salt to taste

slice venison into transparently thin slices and bite size peices or strips
serve with sauce, capers, pickled peppers, and pumpernickel bread
trick is cutting the meat so thin, freezing it a little can help, as can a really sharp -flat knife

raw venison, probably on the menu at the first thanksgiving

You're not odd. Mr. Y-not's favorite veg is rutabagas.

He had bad turnips as a kid. 'Not sure what his mom was doing, but he really had an aversion to them until I made some rutabagas without warning. He loved them. So today instead of mashed potatoes, we're having a traditional dish (either Swedish or Eastern European, depending on who you talk to) that is a combo of mashed potatoes, mashed rutabagas, and mashed turnips.

A little lower carb... but should still be good.

Posted by: Barbarian at November 25, 2009 01:27 PM (EL+OC)

83 OK, I'll be the one this year to post this old chestnut that has been floating around the internet since about 1995. Sorry for the length.

-------------------Black Turkey, circa 1963--------------------------

For about a dozen years, at the approach of turkey-eating season, I have been trumpeting to all who would listen, and to a good many who would rather not, that there is only one way to cook a turkey. This turkey is not my turkey. It is the creation of the late Morton Thompson, who wrote "Not as a Stranger" and other books.

This recipe was first contained in the manuscript of a book called "The Naked Countess" which was given to the late Robert Benchley, who had eaten the turkey and was so moved as to write an introduction to the book. Benchley then lost the manuscript. He kept hoping it would turn up-- although not as much, perhaps, as Thompson did, but somehow it vanished, irretrievably. Thompson did not have the heart to write it over. He did, however, later put his turkey rule in another book. Not a cookbook, but a collection of very funny pieces called "Joe, the Wounded Tennis Player".

THE ONLY WAY TO COOK A TURKEY!!!!!!!

This turkey is work... it requires more attention than an average six-month-old baby. There are no shortcuts, as you will see.

Get a HUGE turkey-- I don't mean just a big, big bird, but one that looks as though it gave the farmer a hard time when he did it in. It ought to weigh between 16 and 30 pounds. Have the poultryman, or butcher, cut its head off at the end of the neck, peel back the skin, and remove the neck close to the body, leaving the tube. You will want this for stuffing. Also, he should leave all the fat on the bird.

When you are ready to cook your bird, rub it inside and out with salt and pepper. Give it a friendly pat and set it aside. Chop the heart, gizzard, and liver and put them, with the neck, into a stewpan with a clove of garlic, a large bay leaf, 1/2 tsp coriander, and some salt. I don't know how much salt-- whatever you think. Cover this with about 5 cups of water and put on the stove to simmer. This will be the basting fluid a little later.

About this time I generally have my first drink of the day, usually a Ramos Fizz. I concoct it by taking the whites of four eggs, an equal amount of whipping cream, juice of half a lemon (less 1 tsp.), 1/2 tsp. confectioner's sugar, an appropriate amount of gin, and blending with a few ice cubes. Pour about two tablespoons of club soda in a chimney glass, add the mix, with ice cubes if you prefer. Save your egg yolks, plus 1 tsp. of lemon -- you'll need them later. Have a good sip! Add 1 dash of Orange Flower Water (to the drink, not the egg yolks).

Get a huge bowl. Throw into it one diced apple, one diced orange, a large can of crushed pineapple, the grated rind of a lemon, and three tablespoons of chopped preserved ginger (If you like ginger, double this -REB). Add 2 cans of drained Chinese water chestnuts.

Mix this altogether, and have another sip of your drink. Get a second, somewhat smaller, bowl. Into this, measuring by teaspoons, put:

2 hot dry mustard
2 caraway seed
2 celery seed
2 poppy seed
1 black pepper
2 1/2 oregano
1/2 mace
1/2 turmeric
1/2 marjoram
1/2 savory
3/4 sage
3/4 thyme 1/4 basil
1/2 chili powder

In the same bowl, add:

1 Tbl. poultry seasoning
4 Tbl parsley
1Tbl salt
4 headless crushed cloves
1 well crushed bay leaf
4 large chopped onions
6 good dashes Tabasco
5 crushed garlic cloves
6 large chopped celery

Wipe your brow, refocus your eyes, get yet another drink--and a third bowl. Put in three packages of unseasoned bread crumbs (or two loaves of toast or bread crumbs), 3/4 lb. ground veal, 1/2 lb. ground fresh pork, 1/4 lb. butter, and all the fat you have been able to pull out of the bird.

About now it seems advisable to switch drinks. Martinis or stingers are recommended. Do this at your own risk (we always did! -REB). Get a fourth bowl, an enormous one. Take a sip for a few minutes, wash your hands, and mix the contents of all the other bowls. Mix it well. Stuff the bird and skewer it. Put the leftover stuffing into the neck tube.

Turn your oven to 500 degrees F and get out a fifth small bowl. Make a paste consisting of those four egg yolks and lemon juice left from the Ramos Fizz. Add 1 tsp hot dry mustard, a crushed clove of garlic, 1 Tbl onion juice, and enough flour to make a stiff paste. When the oven is red hot, put the bird in, breast down on the rack. Sip on your drink until the bird has begin to brown all over, then take it out and paint the bird all over with paste. Put it back in and turn the oven down to 350 degrees F. Let the paste set, then pull the bird out and paint again. Keep doing this until the paste is used up.

Add a quart of cider or white wine to the stuff that's been simmering on the stove, This is your basting fluid. The turkey must be basted every 15 minutes. Don't argue. Set your timer and keep it up. (When confronted with the choice "do I baste from the juice under the bird or do I baste with the juice from the pot on the stove?" make certain that the juice under the bird neither dries out and burns, nor becomes so thin that gravy is weak. When you run out of baste, use cheap red wine. This critter makes incredible gravy! -REB). The bird should cook about 12 minutes per pound, basting every 15 minutes. Enlist the aid of your friends and family.

As the bird cooks, it will first get a light brown, then a dark brown, then darker and darker. After about 2 hours you will think I'm crazy. The bird will be turning black. (Newcomers to black turkey will think you're demented and drunk off your butt, which, if you've followed instructions, you are - REB) In fact, by the time it is finished, it will look as though we have ruined it. Take a fork and poke at the black cindery crust.

Beneath, the bird will be a gorgeous mahogany, reminding one of those golden-browns found in precious Rembrandts. Stick the fork too deep, and the juice will gush to the ceiling. When you take it out, ready to carve it, you will find that you do not need a knife. A loud sound will cause the bird to fall apart like the walls of that famed biblical city. The moist flesh will drive you crazy, and the stuffing--well, there is nothing like it on this earth. You will make the gravy just like it as always done, adding the giblets and whatever is left of the basting fluid.

Sometime during the meal, use a moment to give thanks to Morton Thompson.
There is seldom, if ever, leftover turkey when this recipe is used. If there is, you'll find that the fowl retains its moisture for a few days. That's all there is to it. It's work, hard work--- but it's worth it.

(What follows is not part of the recipe, but is an ingredients list to aid in shopping for this monster, or for checking your spice cabinet -REB)

salt
garlic

89 Really easy recipe for you sweet tooth, Gabe.

Mandy P.'s Spiced and Toasted Pecans
1/2 stick butter (unsalted), melted
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar (you can use either the light or dark brown, depending on what you like)
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt (omit the salt if you can't find the butter unsalted)
1 lb bag pecan halves

Heat your oven to 250 degrees F. Mix butter, syrup, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl until well combined. Add pecans and toss to coat. Pour the whole concoction onto a large baking sheet or jelly roll pan and spread the nuts into one layer. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes to prevent burning. Let them pecans cool completely (they taste better after they've cooled and sat for an hour or two) and store them in an air-tight container. They will keep on your counter for about two weeks. You can also freeze them and they will keep for about 3 months.

You can use other nuts if you don't like pecans but IMO, they taste the best. I'm a huge fan of pecan pie, but we do Thanksgiving every year at my in-laws' house and no one but me and hubby will eat pecan pie there. So I make these instead, everyone eats them up, and I manage to get a taste of pecan pie (cause they taste very similar to that). Everyone wins!

Posted by: OregonMuse at November 25, 2009 01:30 PM

He's cholesterol is fine, so that's a good sign. So's his blood pressure. He's just put on 30 pounds off of my (outstanding, if I do say so myself) cooking and lack of exercise.

I'm hopeful that starting an exercise regimen (which is the biggest factor in control blood glucose levels), losing 30 pounds, and going to a low carb, low fat diet will stop and/or reverse the pre-diabetes. From what I've read at the Mayo Clinic and various other sites, the exercise and weight loss are more effective than drugs.

The hardest part is that a few numbers from a blood work-up have him completely devastated emotionally. He was ok when it was just the doctor saying he should lose 30 pounds, but as soon as the blood work came back and he had a bonafide 'medical condition' he became very glum.

Mexicans aren't big on ginger, I guess. Stale gingersnaps from Walmart and it was always hard to get ginger ale. Uh, because we lived in a border town that was 60-70 % Mexican, I mean.
Tomorrow I will be baking my famous apple pie...with currents and dried cranberries, in a lemon-nutmeg crust. Always takes a while to bake because we keep opening the oven and snorting the fumes.

122 I'm hopeful that starting an exercise regimen (which is the biggest
factor in control blood glucose levels), losing 30 pounds, and going to
a low carb, low fat diet will stop and/or reverse the pre-diabetes.
From what I've read at the Mayo Clinic and various other sites, the
exercise and weight loss are more effective than drugs.

128


1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups commercial eggnog
1-1/2 squares unsweetened baking chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 baked 9-inch pie shell
1 teaspoon rum extract
2 cups whipping cream, divided
1/4 cup confectioners' sugarSoften gelatin in cold water, and set aside.

Combine sugar, cornstarch and salt in a medium saucepan. Gradually stir in eggnog, and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Cook an additional 2 minutes, and remove from heat. Add gelatin mixture, and stir until dissolved.
Divide the filling in half, and set one half aside to cool. Stir in rum extract.
To the other half, add the melted chocolate and vanilla and stir well. Pour into pie shell and refrigerate until filling is set.
Once the remaining filling has completely cooled, beat 1 cup whipping cream until soft peaks form and fold it into the filling. Spread filling evenly in a second layer over the chilled filling in the pie shell.
Beat remaining 1 cup of whipping cream until foamy. Gradually add confectioners' sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Spread over pie. Dust top of pie with sifted cocoa powder or chocolate curls, if desired.

Well, I can't see doing pecan pie without the sugar (cause of the corn syrup requirement), but you could do a fruit pie or even a pumpkin pie with the Splenda baking blends. My FIL is pre-diabetic and my step-dad is borderline, so we do everything we can with both the white and brown sugar Splenda blends. In fact, I made an apple, pear, cranberry and walnut pie with Splenda about a month ago. Even made my own crust with the Splenda instead of sugar and whole wheat flour instead of white. Came out great. I can give you the recipe, if you'd like.

Well, that's not so bad. Once he loses 30 pounds and cleans up his diet a bit, I would think he'd be OK.

The danger, of course, is that if this is adult-onset diabetes, it may gradually get worse over time and then he'll have to start the drug regimen. Ugh.

144 Side dish for those who like to make the perfect "bite" (putting together a taste of two or three items on your plate to combine for the perfect depth of flavor!)

Carrots Puree

1-1.5 lbs of carrots, peeled and sliced
6 tablespoons butter
salt
1/2 cup whipping cream
freshly ground Nutmeg

Melt butter in a saucepan and slowly cook the carrots, uncovered, until they are soft. Puree in a food processor until smooth. Add the whipping cream. Season well with the salt and white pepper and grate just a little fresh nutmeg into the carrot puree. Can be made two days ahead of time and reheated in a pan to serve.

Delicious!

170 Really? Not just lowering your weight, but the actual exercise?

Yeah, Mama, it's the actual exercise.

What's amazing is how little guidance he got from his doctor. Fortunately, I have a life science background so I've been able to figure out what to do.

The biggest factor is exercise. It gets your cells to put a demand for glucose uptake.

The next factor is losing 10-15% of your body weight. Especially, apparently, fat around the middle.

Those two alone decrease the chances of getting diabetes by something like 65%.

The next factor is dividing your meals into a number of small ones throughout the day and moving to a low carb, low fat diet. But not Atkins. (This is from both the American Diabetes Association and the Mayo Clinic do not recommend Atkins.)

I have friend who increased her activity by walking briskly for an hour or two a day and she has decreased her blood glucose without drugs.

One of the most outstanding recipe sites (Moron friendly) is www.recipezaar.com. Try Opal's Pumpkin pie. Beats the hell out of that Libby's recipe and it was used at the White House (before B to the O). If you have the ingredients for pumpkin pie all you'll need for this one is whipping (heavy) cream.

189 Mandy P.'s No-Sugar Added Winter Fruit Pie
Pie Crust:
2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp White Splenda baking blend
1/4 cup Crisco, cold and cut into small bits
1 1/2 sticks butter, cold and cut into small bits (you can use a firm margarine if you like)
1/2 cup ice water

In the food processor, pulse flour, salt and Splenda until combined. Add in the Crisco and pulse until well blended. Add in the butter and pulse until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Add water through the shoot, a little at a time, and pulse until it comes together in a ball of dough. * Note if you use white flour, you'll use about 1/4 cup of the water, if you use whole wheat flour, it requires a bit more (likely the whole 1/2 cup) so add it gradually until the dough comes together.

Divide the dough into two equal-sized balls, wrap in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for at least an hour.

Pie Filling (For an apple or pear pie):
3/4 cup Splenda Brown sugar blend
1/4 cup flour (white or wheat)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Nutmeg, a good dash, to taste
4-5 medium-sized apples or firm pears
Lemon juice, to coat fruit

Peel and cut up your fruit into thin slices. Toss with the lemon juice to prevent browning. You can use either just enough to coat or, if you like your pies kind of tart, you can use more to taste. Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well.

Take one ball of dough out of the fridge and roll it out to fit your pie plate. The easiest way to do this is to roll it between 2 pieces of wax paper (waxed sides will be touching the dough), that are well floured. Put the rolled out dough into the pie plate and add the filling. Dot the filling with 3 tbsp butter (or a butter substitute, Bummel and Brown spread is a good one). Roll out the second ball of dough. If you like, you can lattice the top of the pie by cutting the second bit of dough into strips. If not, you can just put the whole thing over the top and make sure to prick it real good with a fork. Go around the side of the pie plate with a sharp knife to trim the edges. Crimp them or not, depending on what you like to do. Take one egg and beat it with about a tbsp of water to make an egg wash. Brush the top of the pie and the edges with the egg wash, then sprinkle with more cinnamon (you can do cinnamon sugar for the top by mixing cinnamon with the Splenda White sugar baking blend and it comes out yummy), to taste.

Bake in a preheated 450 degree F oven for about 45 minutes. Watch the pie at about the 30 minute mark and if it looks like it's browning too quickly, cover the top with foil. Let the pie rest and cool for 20-30 minutes before serving.

I recommend using a mix of tart and sweet apples (for example, 2 Granny Smiths and 2 Red or Golden Delicious). It gives it a nice balanced flavor. If you do a mixture of fruit, do about half pears and half apples. I've also done 2 apples, 2 pears, 1/3 cup dried cranberries and 1/2 cup black walnuts in this pie and it came out excellent.

191 I am definitely taking some of the recipes in this thread. Morons, not only are they viciously sarcastic but apparently they are also good cooks. I should be doing Thanksgiving prep, but I confess I just got out of bed. I feel somewhat shameful of my sloth, but two Excedrin PMs punched my clock.

I ordered my Pumpkin Cheesecake from Juniors in NYC. We are having Apple Pie for dessert as well (sorry AndrewsDad, cinnamon included, but your ex-wife must be a real charmer for doing that /sarc) Still debating if I have the energy for a pecan pie as well.

Im making a mashed potato casserole. Basically you bake 9 yukon gold potatoes and then you skin them and mash them in a mixer with cream cheese and butter and sour cream and spread it in a buttered casserole dish and then slather melted butter on the top. Then you refrigerate until tomorrow when you pull out and bake the whole shebang. It is so damn good.

197 I am totally going to make this Pumpkin Dip. I'm even going to bake some ginger snaps to go with it.

As for pumpkin pie, I have a recipe I call "One."

ONE small sugar pumpkin (baked for ONE hour at 350)
ONE can of sweetened condensed milk
ONE egg
ONE cup of hot water
Spices -- easy on the cloves and ginger, to taste on the cinammon and nutmeg, but no more than 1.5 teaspoons of either
ONE hour at 375

I've got it memorized.

1) Sew neck opening of turkey tightly shut.

2) Stand turkey on its head, fill body cavity with dried rice, add chicken broth until rice is covered, sew bottom end of turkey tightly shut.

3) Roast in 350 oven until turkey explodes.

4) Call 911 as you spray oven with fire extinguisher.

Double-Trouble Green Bean Casserole
(So easy a moron could make it!)

2 cans (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup (Okay to substitute cream of chicken soup.)

1/4 tsp pepper

1 cup milk

4 cans cut green beans (or 2 bags frozen)

2 large cans of French fried onions (Okay to use Cheese flavored onions if you want.)

In a 9 x 13 pan, mix milk, condensed soup and pepper. Add green beans and 1 can of French friend onions. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Casserole should be bubbling in the center. Scatter the rest of the French fried onions on the the top and bake for 5 minutes more.

You're very welcome! And remember to use the Splenda with anything you would normally use sugar in. Just be sure to buy the bag that has the "cup-for-cup" measurement on it- so you don't have to re-calculate any ingredient quantities- and substitute away. I've yet to come across a recipe where I used Splenda instead of sugar that didn't turn out fine. I even use it to make my sweet tea.

Roast corn till kernels start to turn, slice off kernels and add to grits

The regular canned ones work well, too. I use the buttermilk biscuits, chopped into 1-inch bites. The only thing with using biscuits, instead of making your own dumplings, is that for some reason the sauce doesn't thicken properly and you have to either add in flour or cornstarch to get it to a thick enough consistency for my liking. Whenever I make the home made dumplings, the sauce thickens without adding anything else to it.

If you are on a diet try this, it's good: CORN GRITS
We love shrimp and grits. I usually make it with polenta, same diff, I guess. I'm going to try to figure out a way to use less cream.

A really good polenta recipe that may work with modifications is to use less cream but stir in cream cheese at the end. I've found non-fat cream cheese so maybe that will work.
Anybody have good gator/cayman recipes? I have a package in our freezer. I used to make gator fritters, but I'm thinking it would be better to try to grill them. I haven't found a convincing recipe yet.

Yes, but it can be done with different types of dough. If you like regular flour-based dumplings (which I usually do), then the biscuits work really well. If you like cornmeal dumplings (I do on special occasions) then it's a little different and it's almost more like a fritter batter than a ball of dough.

In beef or chicken stew, a dumpling is basically biscuit dough that cooks in the stew at the last half-hour (like the Bisquick box says). Or it can be a flatter dough cut into strips or squares and cooked in the stew.
Elsewhere, "dumpling" takes on different meanings. Won tons, pot stickers and ravioli are all dumplings. So are gnocchi. So is spaetzle (soft dough squeezed into boiling broth to make random shapes).

OK, this is the best recipe ever. And it's cheap (get pork blade roast, bone-in, when it's about $1 a pound on sale - skip the tenderloin, it's better with the cheaper cut of meat). I make it in an Emile Henry flameware covered casserole (starting on the stove top then moving to the oven at low heat), but if you want to use a slow cooker, just sear the meat in a pan and then transfer it (and as much of the good scrapings from the pan) into your slow cooker. I found it at Kevin Weeks' Seriously Good blog.

I have a really good and simple pot roast recipe I'll try to dig up. Basically, it's just braising pot roast in port with some fresh mushrooms and, I think, some garlic. I used to make my mom's pot roast (which used horseradish and onions) but this is so much better.

I have a chicken recipe that involves braising. The key to it is using these really good rabbit-pork sausages. I'll try to find that one, too.

341 This is a recipe for braising. It's very good. But don't bother with the poussin... just use either game hens or chicken. Actually, I think rabbit would be really good instead of chicken.

Oh, and skip the lemon juice (just use the rind) and substitute the white wine for white dry vermouth. The latter is a trick from Julia Child that really has transformed my cooking.

I believe we got the sausages at an on-line place called Fossil Farms.
Poussin and rabbit sausage with lemon sage sauce
(My own invention)

Sear
poussin halves (dredged in flour seasoned with salt, pepper, and zest
of half a lemon) and sausages in vegetable oil. Set aside.
Drain
oil, add 2 tbsp butter, and saute chopped leeks, diced shallots, and
fresh sage (I used 10 this time, but would increase next time). When
leeks begin to brown, add remaining lemon zest, juice of one lemon (I
would probably eliminate that next time), whole garlic clove (peeled),
and white wine. Return poussin and sausages to the pan. Cover tightly
and braise in a 375 deg oven for at least one hour (I wound up cooking
about 1.5 hours, but the poussin was starting to fall apart). Check
occasionally - add some chicken broth as liquid evaporates to keep the
meat partially covered.
To finish, remove meat and on the stove
top over medium heat vigorously stir sauce (the garlic and leeks should
be very tender at this point and practically dissolve into the sauce)
while adding cream (and chicken broth). Salt to taste.
Strain sauce before serving.

A sauvignon blanc or fume
blanc would go well with this dish.

347 Best thread ever.

A simple appetizer I really like is called somebodyorothers secrets. This combines bacon, sugar, and ketchup, using water chestnuts as a carrier.

Take a bunch of whole water chestnuts (at least 2 cans) and a pound of bacon. Cut the bacon slices in half (not the long way) and wrap the water chestnuts with the strips. Skewer them together with tooth picks.

Bake the skewered water chestnuts for 20 minutes at 350, on a cookie sheet.

Meanwhile, mix 2 cups of sugar with 2 cups of ketchup in a sauce pan, and heat/stir it until it blends together.

Once the chestnut wraps have baked, dip each in the red sauce you just made. Slather it on there good and heavy. Place the now reddened chestnuts back on the cookie sheet. I like to pour a little extra sauce onto them, just in case the calorie layer is not thick enough.

Then put them back in the oven for another 15 20 minutes to carmelize. Then you're done.

Chicken Taco Stew

1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can corn, drained
1 small can tomato sauce
1 small onion, chopped
1 packet taco seasoning
2 cans Rotel tomatoes
1 lb boneless chicken breast

Dump both cans of beans (liquid and all) into the crock pot with corn, tomato sauce, taco seasoning, onion, and tomatoes (juice and all). Mix well. Lay the chicken on top and put the lid on. Cook on low for 8 hours (or high for 4 hours if you're in a hurry). When it's done, pull out the chicken and shred it, then put it back in the pot and mix it up well. Serve hot with shredded cheese or your favorite toppings (like green onions, guacamole, sour cream).

357 Thanksgiving Sandwich
Ingredients:
A whole bunch of thanksgiving crap other people cooked.
2 slices of cheese.
2 pieces of toast.
Directions:
Put a little bit ofall the crap with some cheese between the toast.
Eat carefully.



Pro Tip: Consider consistency in the structural architecture of the sandwich. Melted cheese in direct contact withrefridgerated cranberry jelly will just go all soupy and run out of your sammich.Mashed potatos, sweet potatos and stuffing can all be used to mortar together layers of loose pieces of broccoli or turkey.

361 These roasted vegetables are the best, and simple:

Preheat oven to 425.

Put asparagus or broccoli/cauliflower mix on no stick pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Salt and Pepper. Roast for 20-25 minutes. If you want an Italian flavor, put some parmesan on top after it cools a little. Add a little more olive oil and serve.

Also Alton Brown's guacamole is the best. I bring it every year because peole love it.

Place roast in crock pot with four scrubbed and quartered baking potatoes - 2 quartered onions and a bag of scrubbedcarrots that are cut in half (no, not lengthwise you moron). Add enough water to half cover the roast and cook on low all day (while you're at work). Remove the meat and veggies and use the broth to make gravy.

I've got a good recipe for bacon that's sort-of similar to your water-chestnut one.

You take a pound of bacon and cut each slice into 3-4 smaller slices (width-wise). Wrap each piece around a Hillshire Farms Little Smokie (All Beef- not the ones with cheese in them) Sausage, and secure with a toothpick. Put them in a baking pan and top with 1 box of light brown sugar. Bake at 350 until the sugar melts.

I make these for parties and never have any left. They're so easy and freaking delicious!

366 My favorite dip (low calorie low fat yeh right)

1 tomato chopped (seeded and peeled if you want)
1 can ortega green chilies diced (I use serrano's or grillejo (or how ever you spell it) which are a little hotter but not jalapeno's which I don't like the taste of.)
1 medium onion diced
1 tablespoon butter or lard
1 8oz cream cheese cubed
1 pint heavy cream

Melt fat in sauce pan cook onions until just starting to turn transparent add diced chilies cook 5 min med low heat. Add diced tomatoes cook 15 minutes. Add cream cheese stirring constantly until melted. Add cream. Serve hot with chips and veggies.

This freezes well so you can make it ahead and then thaw and heat. Don't let it boil or you'll have problems because of the cream and cheese.

I usually make it in triple batches for 4-6 people and never have any left.

My mom is 97 and still makes this family favorite of the past 60 years.

Mom's Peanut Butter Pie

1 tbs oleo
8 tbs flour
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2 egg yokes
1 tsp vanilla
2 tbs powered sugar
2 cups milk
2 egg whites
3 tbs peanut butter
baked pie shell (Crisco recipe the best)

Melt oleo - add flour, salt, sugar, and milk. Cook over hot water bath until it starts to thicken. Temper egg yokes with custard, then return all to custard. Cook additional 10 minutes or until thick. Remove from heat and add vanilla.

Mix peanut butter with 2/3 box powered sugar until it looks like cornmeal. Put 1/2 of mixture into pie shell and pour custard over top. Add balance of peanut butter/powered sugar mixture to top of pie.

Beat egg whites, add 2 tsp of powered sugar and spoon onto pie. Bake at 325 until whites are golden brown.

Butthead relatives will forgo other food so as to consume as much pie as possible. Some of the jerks ask for take out pie, and prove their liberal leanings by making assholes of themselves. Thankfully, only once year.

I first saw wild huckleberries in the Pygmy Forest in Mendocino County. It's a place where the soil is so acid from poor drainage that the pine trees only grow to two feet tall... but the azaleas, rhododendrons and huckleberries thrive. Apparently before the Europeans came, the Indians would periodically set wildfires to spur regrowth of the huckleberries to increase their crop.
Oregon is also huckleberry-rich. Maybe a nursery or seed company there could help.

Cinnamon goes into oatmeal but I don't recommend it in grits. Grits are the best (IMO) well salted with tons of butter. But they're also really good with cheese, crumbled bacon or sausage, red-eye gravy, and even with jalapenos. One of my favorite things to do with grits is to make jalapeno cheese grits, pour them into a rectangular baking dish and let them cool in the fridge overnight. Next day I cut them into small squares, dip them in egg (sometimes egg and cornmeal) and fry them until golden. Delicious!

Works with a beef roast too, I just prefer venison. I do brown all my roasts before putting them in the pot as it seems to help hold in the meats juices somewhat and the roast seems to just look more appetizing too. I like this one 'cause you've got a plate of meat, taters, carrots and onions from one pot. Well, not counting the skillet you browned the roast in.

Apparently, three days:
NEW YORK The Chinese dish known as Drunken Chicken has nothing on a bird that'll be dressing up a New York City tavern's Thanksgiving fare it may require legal ID to eat.
Owner Paul Hurley today is unveiling what he calls the nation's first 100-proof turkey.
A spokesman for the owner of O'Casey's Tavern in Midtown Manhattan says that the bird is infused with fruit-flavored and 100-proof Georgi vodka for three days before being cooked.
The flavors of vodka include peach, raspberry, cherry and apple.
The gravy is also laced with the distilled liquor.
Out of concern for the danger of drinking-and-driving, the tavern is offering a free taxi ride home to anyone who orders the turkey.
It wasn't immediately clear how much it will cost to have some of the boozy bird.

You are spot-on. ANd because of that, I tried.I really did. I've done everything from loading them with onions, to dumping an entire bottle of Lousisiana Hot Sauce on top.I think the problem lies in the fact that I have been in the house WHILE they were being prepared. I'm 31, and I still have nightmares.
I do love neckbones, and I put ham hocks in my beans. yummm.

428 World's easiest, if not best crock pot "recipe":
Take the frozen chicken out of the freezer.
Put in in the crockpot.
Add one bottle of BBQ sauce.
Cook onlow all day.

Yeh, it's pretty basic, but everyone has days when it comes in handy.
Another yummy favorite, that I don't have a name for, but is kielbasa and would be fine with your favorite sausage:
1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 c brown sugar
1 tablespoon spicey mustard
(vinegar if you want a little)
1 lb kielbasa
Cook in crock or on stove on low for 3-4 hours. May want to add more brown sugar.
Great for parties if you can get it there without spilling it in your car or burning your ankles.

Oh I do the beers along with the brown as well. And you have a good holiday as well.

This has been a funny thread. Some of these entries I have laughed until I had tears coming from my eyes.

But I got to get some stuff done before Beck comes on in a few minutes. So I am going to call it an early day.

So to all the Morons, have a good night and don't get stupid drunk. Have a good holiday tomorrow. I'll be gone most of the day.

431 Super easy carrots vichy:
Some carrots (I don't know how many just make a guess)
Water (maybe a cup or two just depends on how many carrots, you want the water to cover them)
Some sugar (enough to make it sweet but not to sweet maybe half a cup)
little butter (or a lot just depends on your taste)
parsley (rough chop)
Throw everything in a saucier(except the parsley) and let it cook down until the sugar just begins to caramelize. Take it off the heat and throw in the parsley. Make sure to announce that you are serving "carrots vichy" several times so your guests think you are sophisticated.

433 My favorite crock pot cookbook is the Sunset Crockery Cookbook. Other books I'd gotten tend to need 15 different ingredients, which is annoying.

435 This is the absolute shiznit. Folks go crazy for it:

Sausagemeat Stuffing

2 oz butter
2 medium onions
2 medium apples
1 lb sausagemeat
4 oz fresh breadcrumbs
2 oz chopped almonds
4 oz streaky bacon
Half a teaspoon of sage, chopped fine
Pinch nutmeg
Eggs one or more
Salt and pepper

Fry chopped bacon first and set aside. Chop onion quite finely, and apple into 1/2 inch cubes. Fry onion and apple till soft (NOT BROWN). Mix breadcrumbs, flavourings, seasoning, almonds and chopped bacon with the sausagemeat till well blended. Mix in onion and apple and blend in eggs.

Cook in a pre-heated oven at Gas Mark 6, 400F, 200C for 45 mins - 1 hour. I usually cook it separately in a lightly greased/buttered enamel tin or Pyrex dish. Turn it over half way through, to brown both sides.

439 I am back from the liquor store with a box of booze. Since we have to go to a state store to buy alcohol here I always stock up while Im there. Besides, the bourbon felt lonely so it needed some brandy and some vodka and some kahlula and some rum and some butterscotch schnapps to keep it company in the basket. Oh, and a bunch of those adorable little booze bottles that are just right for your purse for visits to relatives.

441 Call it Corn Casserole, call it Corn Pudding, whatever.
This kicks ass, everyone loves it and it's damn easy.

CORN CASSEROLE

1 can corn niblets
1 can creamed corn
1 box JIFFY corn muffin mix
1 c. sour cream
1/2 stick butter

Mix. Bake at 350 for about 1.25 hours or so.

I add chopped green chilis sometimes. (The kind in the little tiny can.)

Posted by: Cathy at November 25, 2009 05:07 PM (OMqu4)

442 My only recipe involves vodka, ice and green olives. Experiment with the proportions until you get something you like.
Thanks in advance, all, for making this one of the best places on the internets. Enjoy the holiday!

451 I'm late as usual to the threads, but I have a good excuse. I have been keeping my two grand daughters entertained as they are out of school this week. My knees are not going to allow me to cook for this holiday so we are eating out tomorrow. It won't be as good but at least everybody will get their turkey and such.

I hope all the old Vets have a good holiday dinner, I'm sure there are many at rest homes or at the soup kitchens that will get food only fit for those who have nothing else. Maybe not, maybe it will taste as good as those choppered in to us on long ago holidays. Maybe they won't have to eat it standing in the rain, or keeping their heads down so they won't be blown off. But the ones on the line today, the Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Coasties and others might not be so lucky as to even have a holiday meal. I missed a few and I'm sure that they will too. But I wish them good luck and that they have what they need, even if they don't get all they want.

God Bless and keep them.

Here is my contribution to the fantastic (and funny) recipes from/for the morons.

Holiday Mashed Pototoes

4-5 pounds potatoes (peeled, cut into chunks)
1 pack 8 oz Cream Cheese
cup Butter or half a stick
1 tbsp garlic powder (not garlic salt)
cup Sour cream
cup Milk
2 eggs -- beaten
1 bag onion soup mix
1 teaspoon Salt
2-3 dashes Pepper

Preheat oven to 350F.
(you can prepare tonight and cook tomorrow)

Cook potatoes in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender, about 25 minutes. Drain almost all the water.
Transfer potatoes to large bowl. Add remaining ingredients. Using electric mixer, beat mixture until smooth as you want,
I like it a little chunky. If too thick add a little milk.

Put in big enough baking pan
Cover with foil; bake 20 minutes.
Uncover, bake about 15 minutes longer.
Remove, cover

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone.

452 The quality of two styles UGG winter boots are not much distinction.
GHD hair styler in the texture and quality, the "metal scutcheon" slightly better than "nylon scutcheon".In fact, UGG boots uk
just classifies products from model and grade basically.It doesn`t
mind. However, judging with years of experience, the metal scutcheon
has never been forged ugg cardy. Even being forged out" similar styles, it is still impossible to match metal scutcheon. ghd styler Cost? Process capability? I am not very clear. As long as I see
"classic cardy"
when I stock, I always will take them without any authentication.
However, it is necessary to pay some attention to the "nylon
scutcheon".

453 Once upon a time, two women created the cutest velour hoodies and matching
drawstring pants. The line was called Christian Louboutin and
every starlet in Tinseltown had to have one. Soon after, so did the rest of the

with clothing, Christian
