i am currently making a tomato-basil quiche!

you need:
frozen pie crust, thawed.
onion--sliced
tomato--sliced
three eggs
1/2 cup milk
1.5 cups shredded cheese (colby jack, cheddar, whatever. i used a mexican blend because it's all i have here)

bake a thawed frozen pie crust at 400 for 10 minutes.
sautee a sliced onion in oil on medium until soft. sprinkle tomato slices with flour & dried basil, and sautee a minute per side.
in a bowl, mix 3 eggs and a half cup of milk, and season with salt/pepper.
sprinkle a cup of shredded cheese on bottom of pie crust, cover with onion, cover that with tomato. pour egg mixture over and sprinkle half cup of cheese on top.

bake at 400 for 10 minutes, then at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

i added chopped fresh basil.

it's smelling good, and it was so easy! Very Happy

****

edit: sooooo good. yum!

To get it one step up from Darqcyde's recipe, replace 1/3 cup of [all-purpose] flour with Hershey's cocoa. Use peanut butter chips as the other and you'll have my renowned Chocolate Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Of course, it's not a truly triple c. chip, but that can be remedied with white chocolate chips.

oooh! i can share the delicious recipe we had last week!!

in a crockpot or slow-cooker put:

diced carrot
sliced mushrooms
chopped cooked chicken (i used leftovers from a roast chicken that had been slathered in whipped garlic - i'll post that recipe once i find a new supply of whipped garlic) (i also supplemented it with a can of chicken)
chicken broth (about two boxes or three cans)
3/4 cup of rice

put on high for about 3 hours. about halfway through, i tasted it and it was kinda bland so i put in some Garlic Garni (again, need to find a link for you)

serve with fresh bread and mmmMMMMMmmmm.

gah. i'm hungry now. *wanders off for breakfast that sadly isn't chicken and rice soup*

Almond Bark Cookies aka Those Peanut Butter Glob Things
2 lbs almond bark
2 cups peanut butter
5 cups rice krispies
2 cups mini marshmallows
Optional: you can use crunchy peanut butter instead or you can add a cup of peanuts.

Directions: Melt almond bark in microwave in large bowl (make sure you do this slowly with lots of stirring as written on package). Once all lumps are gone, stir in the other ingredients.

I usually cover an entire table with wax paper and then spoon out globs of the mixture. Size of globs depends on you. Let cool/stand for about 45 minutes and they are ready to go! Simple and yummy especially if you have some peanut butter lovers.

Ooh! When I get a chance, I am totally submitting my Hollandaise sauce!

I taught myself how to make eggs Benedict when I was 8 and omelettes when I was 11. I love making breakfast/brunch (brunch is better, 'cause you can serve alcohol!). Remember that next time there's a Sinfest Con! "SlinkyKat will make the morning feast!"

Beer is a fine and invigorating breakfast drink.

For the longest time I had to have a Dos Equis (lager - the green bottle) and a shot of gold tequila while I ate my huevos Rancheros...then all the years of drinking Pancho Villa (a wretched white tequila sold in plastic bottles and served in Mexican dive bars) caught up with me. Now I have to make do with a tamarind Jarritos soda, or an agua fresca.

buffalo chicken dip

* 2 (10 ounce) cans chunk chicken, drained
* 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
* 1 cup Ranch dressing
* 3/4 cup pepper sauce, such as FranksŪ Red HotŪ
* 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

DIRECTIONS

1. Heat chicken and hot sauce in a skillet over medium heat, until heated through. Stir in cream cheese and ranch dressing. Cook, stirring until well blended and warm. Mix in half of the shredded cheese, and transfer the mixture to a slow cooker. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top, cover, and cook on Low setting until hot and bubbly.

Eat with crackers, chips, bread, whatever you feel like Smile

Also, More easy recipes would be great. I hate cooking complicated things for only one or two people.


I had this a week ago, only with Bleu cheese instead of ranch.

heh...tamarind Jarritos...

I got the tamarind flavor and the malt flavor mixed up once when I was younger. They are totally not the same. Also, I used to look like Pancho Villa before I cut my hair.

Braised short ribs:

1 lb beef short ribs
1 can tomato paste
2 tbs balsamic vinegar
any herbs and spices you see fit to add
salt and pepper

Mix all the flavory stuff together in a big bowl with a whisk. Salt and pepper the ribs and sear in a screaming hot skillet. Toss the seared ribs in the tasty paste to coat. Wrap them in two layers of foil...make sure to seal them up real good. Put the foil packs in a COLD - very important - COLD oven. Set the oven temp to 250F and set a timer for 5 hours. When the timer does the beep, take the packs out. While they're hot, cut the end off and drain the tasty liquid out into a glass measuring cup or other non-plastic tallish device. Stick that tasty in the fridge. Pull the meat out and pull out the bone. Or don't if you want to serve them in gnawable form. Put the meat, covered, in the fridge. Come back the next day and the tasty liquid will have formed a tasty fat puck on top. Grab that off the top and save for later use (it's great for sauteing). Pull out the meat and cut off the remaining connective tissue with kitchen shears. Now you can do all kinds of stuff with it! Make a sauce out of the liquid and heat the meat, serve over rice or noodles. If you added asian spices, make a thick sauce out of the liquid and add to stir fried veggies and the meat....

buuuns

a staple in our bento boxes. yoinked from this page but modified because i'm lazy.

frozen dinner roll dough (i use Rhodes because that's what the store has)
filling:
it varies. i've used
those buckets o' bbq pulled meat (beef, chicken or pork)
chopped meatballs, chopped string cheese and spaghetti sauce
peanut butter and jelly (omg, soooo goood)
chopped lunchmeat and cheddar cheese
leftover beef'n'brocolli


thaw the dough. i used to store the bag in the fridge for a day and then fight to pull the rolls apart, but last time i used the quick defrost (put them on a cookie sheet and in a warm humid oven for 1 1/2 hours -- wow, no fighting with the dough! all thawed and not stuck to each other! yay!)

roll each doughball on slightly floured surface to about 4" round.

put a dollop of your filling in the center. don't overfill, but don't be stingy.

now, imagine the dough is a compass. fold the N and S points together. fold the E and W points together. fold the NE and SW points together. fold the NW and SE points together. the dough should be completely surrounding your dollop of filling and it should be sealed.

place buuun on a slightly greased baking sheet. do the rest of the dough. a 36-roll bag of dough will fill 2 baking sheets. when one sheet is filled, cover with a dishtowel and let rise for 20 minutes. you can work on the second sheet during the first sheet's rising time.

preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

the original site had you brushing the dough with eggwhites and sprinkling sesame seeds on them. i don't do that. just pop the sheet into the oven for 15 minutes or until they're golden brown.

let them cool a little bit. *drool* very yummy.

i store them in the freezer. in the morning, i grab two per bento, microwave them for a minute to get most the frost out, then into the toaster oven to toast, being careful not to burn them. add a fruit, veg, treat and crunchy bits and lunch is ready in less than five minutes.
