Lady Di said...

I don't need the subscription: I've got my own already. But... This came from an online freezer meal plan and this goes on top of Beef and Bean Burritos. I was a bit worried, and hubby loved it! I had enough to top the burritos and have a meal that night and another night. I just reheated the chili over low heat until warm. And it's not too spicy - which I like and easily made spicier. Original recipes http://www.uwyo.edu/WINTHEROCKIES_EDUR/FamilyMealtimes.asp

Green Chili

1 pound lean pork
6 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 small onion, diced
1 can (4 oz.) green chilies, chopped
1 can (16 oz.) tomatoes, cut up
4 cups water
1 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

1. Cut up pork and lightly coat with flour; brown in oil.
2. Add onions and brown.
3. Add chilies, tomatoes, water, and seasonings. Simmer
for 1 hour.
4. Cool. Place in gallon freezer bag.
5. Label with date and heating instructions (see Beef and Bean Burritos). Freeze with
pan of burritos.
6. Store unused portion in refrigerator.

My husband's from Cajun Country, so here's our favorite Shrimp Etouffee recipe (sorry, it's going to take up a bit of space).

1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 cup chopped onion
1 green bell pepper, cored, seeded, and chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
8 ounces tomato sauce
1 cup dry white wine
8 ounces clam juice
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce
1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1 1/2 pounds fresh shrimp, peeled and deveined (can also use frozen shrimp)
Hot cooked rice

In a large pot over medium heat, melt butter; stir in flour and cook until bubbly. Stir in green onions, chopped onion, bell pepper, celery, garlic, bay leaf, thyme, and basil. Reduce heat to low and cook, uncovered, stirring often for approximately 20 to 30 minutes or until vegetables are soft.

Increase heat to high and add tomato sauce, wine, clam juice, water, Worcestershire sauce, white pepper, and Tabasco; stirring, bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 45 minutes or until thickened and reduced to 4 1/2 cups. Stir in lemon zest, lemon juice, parsley, and shrimp. Simmer approximately 2 to 3 minutes or until shrimp are cooked. Remove from heat and serve over hot cooked rice.

Lara said...

OOh, I would love this.
Jambalaya is a favourite here. Just saute a cup each of onion, green pepper, and celery for 5 minutes. Add 8 oz of turkey kielbasa. Then add 1 and 1/3 cup of salsa, 2.5 cups chicken broth, 1 cup of rice, a bay leaf and some cajun spice of some kind ( you can also add some oregano and thyme). Bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes. Add shrimp or scallops and cook for 5 more minutes. Stir in some parsley and serve!

Elysa said...

My family ADORE RR and I love her magazine...but I'm always having to search for it at the store. It would be a GINORMOUS blessing to get it delivered to my home sweet home!

Here's a recipe that I adapted from a Southern Living one and gets RAVE reviews. I basically took their recipe that had some unhealthy stuff and converted it into a more natural, more healthy one:

PEACHY PORK PICANTE

2 lbs of boneless pork, cubed (you can also substitute chicken)
Cumin
Chili Powder
Garlic Powder
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1 cup of ALL-FRUIT or JUST FRUIT peach preserves/jam
1 16oz jar mild salsa
Hot cooked rice
Sprinkle the meat generously with the 3 spices. I'd do about equal amounts of chili and cumin and a little less of the garlic.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook. Stir constantly until browned/cooked on all sides.
Stir in preserves and salsa; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Kristi R. said...

Oh, great prize!!!
We go for simple around here and
we love this grilled salmon...

Marinate (about 1 hour) in equal parts olive oil and soy sauce (also add about 15-20 shakes of liquid smoke to marinade).

Before adding salmon to grill coat both sides with mayo - will burn off and prevent sticking. Skin will pretty much just fall off (easily peel off) during grilling.

Thats it! It's so yummy - all my kids love it. We usually serve with Jasmine rice.

One of my very favorite recipes is stuffed peppers!

6 small green peppers
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup cooked rice (well, I do 1 cup cooked rice - I think this should say 1@ cup uncooked rice)
1/2 tsp. salt
dash pepper
1 slightly beaten egg
2 Tbsp. minced onion
1 can tomato soup

Steam peppers in 1 cup boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain. Cut top off pepper and remove the insides.
Brown meat. Drain ft, and rinse.
Add rice, salt, pepper, egg, onion and 1/2 can of soup. Mix well and fill peppers. Add small amount of milk to remaining soup. Pour over peppers and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

We all love it in my house (although, admittedly, the kids leave the pepper as a bowl and do not eat it and the adults do LOL!)

I love Rachael Ray, and so do my three girls. I could really use some more inspiration for cooking and general household stuff!

Here's my easy-peasy favorite party finger food:

Flour Tortillas
Spreadable cream cheese (you choose the flavor)
Thin-sliced ham

Spread each tortilla with cream cheese (I like chives) and then top with a thin layer of ham. Roll up as tightly as possible, wrap with plastic wrap and place in fridge for at least an hour.

When it's time to serve, slice into cute and tasty pinwheels.

Sherry said...

Yield: about six large or twelve miniature muffins

Ingredients;
1/2 c. butter or margarine, softened
1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
3/4 c. applesauce
1 3/4 c. flour
1 Tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

heh - you asked for it!
London Broil au jus

* 4 (6 to 8 oz.) boneless sirloin steaks, about 1-inch thick
* 1 garlic clove, peeled and sliced in half lengthwise
* salt & pepper
* 1 tbls. extra virgin olive oil
* 1-1/4 Tbls. unsalted butter, divided
* 1 Tbls. sliced shallot
* 1/2 c. lower sodium beef broth
* 1-1/2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme

Position oven rack 6-8 inches from broiler. Heat broiler. Pat steaks dry with paper towel and rub well on both sides with cut sides of garlic clove. Discard garlic.

Season both sides with salt and pepper and place in large cast-iron or ovenproof skillet. Drizzle oil over steaks, turning so that both sides are covered with oil.

Broil for 5 minutes, turn and broil an addition 4 - 5 minutes for medium-rare. Remove from oven and transfer steaks to a cutting board, leaving juices in skillet.

Place skillet on stovetop over medium-low heat; add 1/4 Tbls of the butter and shallot and cook until transparent, about 2 minutes. Add broth, increase heat to high and cook until sauce is thickened, about 2 minutes. Whisk in remaining tablespoon of butter and thyme. Slice steaks, spoon sauce over the top and serve.

This was wonderful. I made it first with top sirloin, but actually liked it better with the london broil because the slices were nice & big! This was so good, even my very finicky mom ate it, asked for the recipe and made it when she went home!

We are MAJOR mexican food lovers in my house, so our fave is green chile enchiladas. Here goes:

Combine browned ground beef (I use 3/4 lbs or so), 2 cans cream of mushroom, 1 small can of chopped green chilis, a small white onion, and 2 cans of green chili sauce in a sauce pan and heat until the flavors marry...

Spray a baking dish with some Pam and spread a bit of the mixture on the bottom of the pan.

Fill approx. 12 tortillas with the mixture and pour the rest of the mixture on top of the enchiladas. Top with a bag of mozzarella (or fiesta blend) cheese.

Bake 35 minutes at 374. YUMM-O!

I'm game for this one. Here is a favorite recipe of my Girl Scout troop when we go camping.


HASH BROWN SURPRISE

1 Package Shredded Hash browns
1 Pound of crumbled sausage, bacon, and ham
6 eggs, beaten
8 oz grated cheese (your choice)
1 small onion chopped
1 clove of garlic chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

Grease Dutch oven, skillet or pan. Add hash browns and top with meat. Beat eggs with onion, garlic, salt and pepper; pour over potato/meat mixture and top with cheese. Bake for about 30 minutes. Great with homemade salsa or chili!

Rebecca said...

I love Rachel Ray! Her 30 min meals is my kinda cooking, though she's way better at it than I am. Anyway, here's my recipe for you. Even Rachel could bake this & it only takes 30 min, okay maybe a little over just measure, pour & mix fast.

Butter Cake:
1cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 egg, slightly beaten

Mix ingredients. Place dough in greased & floured round cake pan. Bake at 375* for 30 min. Served warm with fresh fruit or canned & powdered sugar (optional). It's also good with ice-cream or ganosh. Freshly cut strawberries sugared in their own juices is my favorite to top it off with. Enjoy!

Linda SS said...

Thanks for offering a fabulous prize! For a fast lunch I cook a package of cheese tortellini, add 2 cups of frozen baby peas at the bottom of a colander and drain the cooked tortellini over the top of them. Put them both back in the pan and stir with a couple tablespoons of butter & fresh parmesan cheese. Stir together until peas are heated and cheese is melted.

I love Rachel Ray.

michelle said...

I would love a subscription to Rachel Ray. One of my favourite recipes, if you might call it that, is to grill our pizzas on the barbecue. I make the dough using the recipe on Todd English's web site, grill the rounds on one side, flip them over briefly, then remove them and add our toppings. Again, I use the pizza sauce recipe on Todd English's site. The pizzas then go back on the grill (I cook on low so they don't burn, but the cheese has time to melt and the toppings heat through). These are sooooo good. Almost like having a brick oven pizza.

Freezer Chicks are too cool!

In summer I use my slow cooker & microwave almost daily and my favorite recipe is for Summer Stewed Beef.

Cook up a blade steak straight from the freezer (or any small roast, steaks or other beef cuts) in a slow cooker along with 1/2 c. water, a generous splash of cabernet savignon or merlot wine, and a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper. Leave on low overnight and thru the next day.

When you get home from work, sort thru the meat to discard any bones or bits of fat, then whisk in a flour/water mixture until thickened. Salt to taste.

Serve over brown rice (I make huge batches on cool days and then freeze in smaller portions to microwave on hot days).

Side dish of green beans w/sauteed garlic. Garnish with sliced tomato. Or cheat and serve with deli bean salad.

Oh yes, and don't forget to serve up with a glass of that leftover red wine, lightly chilled.

Stay cool & happy summer!
