Welcome to the FReeper Recipe Thread for July 2012.
Looking for something new to make or made something new that came out great? Please share a 'tried-and-true' recipe or seven- for fellow FReepers to add to their 'go-to' Recipe Stack of Family Favorites!
Here's the place to share and explore your latest and greatest favorite recipe.
Salsa for a grilled steak or chicken burrito:
One cucumber (seeded)
Two halapeno peppers (seeded)
1/2 large onion
juice of two lemons
1/2 cup of celantro
Mince the veggies and celantro, and toss with lemon juice.
We use Mexican spice rub on the grilled steak, cut it in slices and wrap it up in a burrito shell with lots of salsa. Yum.
That does sound good. There are many ways to make bread pudding. That was one of the things that made it popular. A quick easy snack made from leftovers, much like rice pudding.
I have a Krupp cappuccino maker that I have tried over and over and just don’t like the results. Does anybody have a better recipe or tips on using this thing?
I like the gas station cappuccino but not the homemade, something just not right with this picture.
I don’t know if I posted this before, but had some of this for chinese dinner last night using store bought preseasoned fajita pork. I’ve learned that the preseasoned fajita meats (our store sells this in beef, pork and chicken) works well in chinese dishes. I’ve tweaked the Yang Chow Slippery Shrimp recipe (horrible title) which is a coating for the meat rather than a sauce. You can use any type of meat - beef, chicken, pork, shrimp, catfish or even preseasoned meat. The ingredient amounts aren’t set in stone so can be varied to taste.
Chinese meat coating:
2 lbs. raw meat cut into bite size pieces
2 t garlic powder
1 t powdered ginger
1 t cayenne
4 T ketchup
3 T white vinegar
3 T water
3 T sugar
1/4 C chopped green onion
salt to taste (if using preseasoned meat, omit the salt)
Toss the meat pieces in corn starch to coat. Fry in the veg oil. Set aside.
In a small sauce pan, combine the remaining ingredients and heat through. Pour over cooked meat and stir to coat.
Good one! Indeed he does.
For those who don't know, Dewhurst (RINO)is long time TX Lt. Gov. who was running for R US Senator. Dewhurst ran a nasty lie ad campaign against opponent Cruz (Palin supported). Cruz stayed out of the mud slinging and came out the winner with 57% of the vote this week. That should send a wake up call to Austin and Washington RINOs.
You are a doll, Gabz!! I personally think the best recipes are the ones that aren’t “written out” completely. Your recipe sounds divine and I truly thank you. I also hope you get to feeling better and super soon. Hugs to you, Mom
Well, now this one is finally written out! I really need to start writing some of them down, it always seems my best dishes are the ones that I make up on the fly - and then can’t duplicate them.
Thank you for the well wishes. It is getting a bit better each day - though I don’t imagine eating corn on the cob any time soon! It was something I had to do, but kept putting off - then my brother who I hadn’t seen in nearly 20 years contacted me about going to Florida to surprise our dad on his 75th birthday. The day we finalized our plans (he foot the entire bill for me and my daughter) the check to cover the dental costs arrived in the mail from my father. I made the decision then and there to get it done before I went to Florida - which is a good thing because I probably still would be finding excuses to put it off.

THE IRISH COFFEE STORY / thebuenavista.com
On the night of Nov 10, 1952, then-BV owner Jack Koeppler, challenged intl travel writer Stanton Delaplane to help re-create a highly touted "Irish Coffee" served at Shannon Airport in Ireland.
They began to experiment---stirring and sipping--acknowledging two problems: taste wasn't "quite right," cream would not float. Jack pursued the elusive elixir with religious fervor, even making a pilgrimage to Shannon Airport. Upon his return, experimentation continued.
The problem of the cream was taken to San Franciscos mayor, a prominent dairy owner. It was discovered that when cream was aged 48 hours and frothed to a precise half whipped consistency, it would float as delicately as a swan on the coffee's surface.
Success was theirs and a sparkling clear, six-ounce, heat-treated goblet was chosen for service. Finally, the perfect-tasting Irish whiskey was selected. Soon the Coffee's fame spread throughout the land.
Today, its still the same delicious mixture, in the same clamorous, cosmopolitan Buena Vista. Both
