alternative title: "Sinfest Cooks!"


Seriously, I'm in need of easy summer recipes. It's getting too hot to stay in the kitchen for any length of time longer than filling up my water glass and grabbing a handful of ice. And fast-food isn't an option anymore.

What are your favorite summer-time recipes?

Papaya Parfait

My girlfriend made this and she's hardly a culinary wiz. It also barely utilizes the stove, which is big plus during the summer.

Chicken stirfry and rice is my favorite all the time recipe.

Put a pot of rice on to cook. Then cut a chicken breast into one inch chunks, and cut up whatever veggies you happen to have on hand, I like bell peppers, onions, and tomatoes, and sometimes carrots. Put a little bit of vegetable oil in a pan on medium-high heat, and toss in the chicken. When it's white on both sides but still a little pink in the middle, start adding veggies. Begin with the firmest produce and work your way down to the tomatoes. When the tomatoes are starting to get soft and kinda run into the other stuff the chicken should be browned around the edges. Put the rice on a plate, pour the chicken and vegetables over it, and smother the whole thing in sweet-chili sauce.

Pair with a beer.

Salads are also quick, easy, and good, but you probably knew that.

You forgot the most important part!

Pair it with beer.

club sandwiches.

unfortunately you'll have to stay in the kitchen for the oven broil or the pan fry of the bacon, but I like them.

when in doubt, large crock pot and stews are always easy and kitchen free, the problem is that stews are really hardy and winteresque foods.

on the other hand, if you have real tapioca pearls you can always make tapioca puddin with the crock pot, just be sure to soak the pearls overnight and be sure to stir the tapioca during the crock cooking, or else they turn into big nasty burnt clomps.

here's alton brown's recipe, since I don't like lemon I just use vanilla extract, still about the same.

I present you all with the recipie for one of the most common dishes in sweden:

Swedish Meatballs and macaroni.

Simple, make the meatballs (skip the mustard in the recepie aboce and go for the fine breadcrumbs-approach), fry them in the pan (not the oven). Boil your pasta. Serve together with ketchup.

Sautee two onions and two pounds of carrots in butter until the onions start turning translucent.

Mix up approx 1/2 the volume of soup you want in chicken or vegetable base.
Add thyme, pepper, and salt to taste.

Add the base and spices to the carrots and onions and cook until the carrots are very soft.

Then either use a hand mixer, or cuisinart to puree the carrot/broth/onion mixture until smooth.

add 1/2 the volume of soup you want in orange juice, as well as some orange zest and bring to a boil,

Remove from heat and chill, serve cold as you can get it.

For the summer heat, get some great tomatoes and basil and eat on good bread, then cut up cantaloupe and eat with prosciutto, then a peach and blueberry smoothie with yoghurt and honey. No cooking, delicious, and if you wink when getting out the honey, more fun may happen later as well.

Very ripe cantalope, cut into wedges, sprinkled with balsamic vinigar and garnished with freshly cracked black pepper...

Or just the melon as is. ^_^

All these recipes are beer deficient.

60% molassas
40% tomato paste

Seasoning suggestions:

Hmmm, anything pasta-y is usually a good way to go.

Me, I like avacado Cannelloni. Buy some Cannelloni shells and stuff em with chopped avacado, cottage cheese, garlic, ricotta, beef, mozzerella....and anything else really, whatever you think tastes good just stuff the cannellonis with it. You can't go wrong.

Then just put the cannelloni in a deep baking dish and fill that with tomato sauce. How much tomato sauce depends on the amout on cannelloni you made, just make sure you fill it up, if the sauce isn't above the noodle then they won't soften up.

The cannelloni box should have cooking instructions, but generally you cover it in foil and put in in the oven at 350 for an hour and a half.

This isn't quick, but you don't have to do anything to it after that, so you won't need to be in the kitchen again until you take it out. Go watch a movie or something and then eat.
