H'okay, so, hopefully this will become a thread, or at the very least isn't an affront to dungeon rules. If so, Mr. Fuentes, you know what to do.

Guys, gals, asexual trolls-I like to cook. A LOT. As such, I would love to share some of my favorite recipes with you cool cats 'cuz despite my being pretty absent from the forums over the past few years, this place still fees like a home of sorts. With that line of thinking, I figured maybe we could do some recipe swapping. Anything goes-something you made up on the fly, a treasured family delicacy passed down from Nana, that weird uncle's bootleg brew-whatevs.

Anyway, I already have a request for my mom's waffle recipe, which is in the works-I don't know it myself by heart & I'm not able to ask my mom what exactly it entails at the moment. In the meantime however, here's a favorite of mine, but keep in mind this is a LARGE serving-just cut back where necessary, or save the leftovers, they store pretty well for 3 days or so.

Cheeseburger Soup:

2 lbs. ground beef
3/4 cup onions, diced
3/4 cup carrots, diced
3/4 cup celery, diced
1 ts. dried basil
1 ts. dried parsley
4 tbs. butter, divided
2 cups beef broth, or 2 beef bullion cubes w/ 2 cups water
4 cups diced potatoes (I like to leave the peels on, all up to you)
1/4 cup all purpose flour
10-12 oz. Velveeta (or a little more if you like it cheesy, whatevs, it's all you, baby)
2 cups milk
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup sour cream

Brown beef in sauce pan; drain & set aside. In same pan, saute onions, celery, carrots, basil & parsley in 1 tbs. butter until veggies are tender, around 10 minutes maybe (just look for the onions to start to turn opaque). Add broth, potatoes & beef; bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Cover & simmer for 10-15 minutes, just until potatoes are tender. In a small skillet, melt remaining butter over low-medium heat; add flour, cook & stir for 3-5 minutes. You want a sort of oatmeal consistency, or when it starts to get all bubbly. Add to soup, bring to a boil. Cook at this heat while stirring often for 2 minutes or so, then bring it back down to a low-medium heat. Add cheese, salt, pepper, cooking & stirring like a Shakespeare era witch until your cheese is all melted. Turn off the heat, mix in sour cream, and enjoy. I find it pairs well with cheesy garlic bread actually. Also, I sometimes like to crumble bacon over it.

One last thing- this isn't something I created myself, just something I found a while ago, made & loved. Enjoy, dungies! <3

I love trying out new recipes! :)

Here one of my popular favorites, Anne's Chicken:

Ingredients:

    1 frying chicken, cut up I like using 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or 2 turkey breasts.
    Salt and pepper
    1 can (10 1/2 ounces) cream of mushroom celery soup
    1/2 cup dry of your favorite white wine
    2 tbsp. melted butter
    2 tbsp. dry Italian salad dressing mix (Good Seasons, etc.)
    2 (3 oz.) pkgs. cream cheese, cut in cubes (sometimes I only use one)
    1 1/2 tbsp. powdered onion, chopped
    1/2 tbsp. powdered garlic (or sometimes I use a whole clove instead)

Preparation:
Wash chicken and pat dry. Brush with butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in Crock Pot. Sprinkle with dry salad mix. Cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.
About 3/4 hour before serving, mix soup, cream cheese, wine, and onion in small saucepan. Cook until smooth. Pour over chicken in pot. Cover and cook for 30 minutes on low. Serve with sauce. Serve with rice or noodles. Serves 4 to 6.


This was one of my goto's when I was married and didn't have time to get overly involved with something new. On a side note, I really wish wish I had insisted on keeping the crock pot when I got divorced instead of letting her keep everything. That thing was awesome. Hmmm... Think I'll go buy one this week.


I used to have a whole bunch of recipes in my ex's cookbook-folder-thingy that I got off the net and modified to my liking. I should ask her for copies of them.

Nothing bad about a recipe thread, food is good, oh so very good. That is unless someone is a bad cook, then things can go awry.

Yay! I'm Bloodreign approved!

Alright, I literally just made this recipe, as in it is cooling in my kitchen as we speak & they turned out pretty alright. Instead of the teaspoon drops of the mixture I used more like tablespoons, so of course they're larger & more cake-like in the middle. Fine by me though. Oh, one more thing-I got this off of a bottle of body wash, I shit you not. Love Philosophy brand products!


Chocolate Chip Cookies
----------------------------

For a delicious batch of cookies, gather:
1 c. butter (softened)
3/4 c. light brown sugar
1/4 c. sugar
3.5 oz. instant vanilla pudding mix
2 eggs
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 c. semisweet chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars in large bowl. Gradually add pudding mix, eggs, and extract. Sift flour and baking soda together; add to mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop teaspoonfuls onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375°F for 10 minutes or until desired gooeyness.

A good recipe I've had which my Dad made was called 'Mock apple pie' In other words it's not made with apples but Ritz crackers. I can't remember the story behind it as it was either made during the great depression or the second world war. But it does taste good and does well to copy the apple taste. Now while it doesn't say what type of Ritz crackers to use in the recipe my Dad always used the regular ones.

Ritz Mock Apple Pie

The classic pie, featuring Ritz crackers baked in a golden crust,
is perfect for the holidays.

Pastry for two-crust 9-inch pie
36 RITZ Crackers, coarsely broken (about 1 3/4 cups crumbs)
1 3/4 cups water
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Grated peel of one lemon
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1. Roll out half the pastry and line a 9-inch pie plate. Place
cracker crumbs in prepared crust; set aside.

2. Heat water, sugar and cream of tartar to a boil in saucepan
over high heat; simmer for 15 minutes. Add lemon juice and peel;
cool.

3. Pour syrup over cracker crumbs. Dot with margarine or butter;
sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll out remaining pastry; place over pie.
Trim, seal and flute edges. Slit top crust to allow steam to escape.

4. Bake at 425 F for 30 to 35 minutes or until crust is crisp
and golden. Cool completely.

Makes 10 servings

I've heard of mock apple pie. Never tried it though. Sounds interesting. And, good news. My ex-wife decided not to be an evil bitch and actually gave me my old apple rosemary chicken recipe. I'll put it up later. This one's a great alternative to regular old chicken soup.

Sweet, looks like we've got some wicked awesome recipes posted so far. I'm typing this on my smart phone at the moment, or I'd go ahead & post a recipe for chicken soup I did create all by my lonseome. It's a simple, yet hearty meal.

When I was 11 or so, I always imagined adventurerersike the Belmonts going to town on this sort of thing at the local in, makingit part of their preparationsfor storming Castlevania.  lawlz

Damn straight! I remember the old days when it was just me, a large pizza, and the latest Megaman cart during summer break. Now there's no more new Megaman games, but at least I can make a pizza from scratch whenever I want. ;)

Anyway, here's my old recipe my surprisingly-not-so-bitchy-ex-wife texted to me the other day:

Rosemary Apple Chicken Stew for Slowcooker/Crockpot

Ingredients:
2 to 3 apples of your choosing (I like to use 3 different  kinds for a nice blend of flavors)
1 can of cream of Celery soup (I use this a lot for extra veetamins)
4 cups chicken stock, heated
Fresh Rosemary, minced
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
About 2 cups of your favorite rice
Salt & Pepper to taste
Powdered Garlic to taste (my ex was a bad vampire, loved garlic to death. I always had to add it to everything. lol)

Directions:
Slice up your apples and arrange them on the bottom of the pot. Then place your chicken breasts over the apples and season with salt, pepper, & rosemary. Next add the celery soup and the chicken stock and simmer for 2 to 3 hours. 30 minutes before serving add the rice if using white. If using brown rice put it in 45 minutes before serving. If your liquid is running dry add hot water in half cup increments, but be careful not to add too much.

And there you go. A hearty stew with a unique flavor. ;)

I too love to cook. I couldn't tell you any recipes exactly though, cause I just kind of wing it. I always like to try different things too, so whenever I end up making a repeat I just think about the flavor profiles at play and pick something odd or interesting that may match it and just throw it in.

I'm really good at maximizing cheap stuff too. I can eat for 2.75$ a day. Not terribly good, but it can hit all the needed food groups.

Yay for crockpots! They do make extra delicious foods possible.

So yours truly has been pretty occupied lately, but here's that chicken soup recipe I threw together as promised. I hadn't really given it a name, but I think I've finally found one now...


Belmont Wall Chicken Soup
-----------------------------------

3lbs. chicken breast
7 cups chicken stock/ 7 chicken bullion cubes mixed with 7 cups water
1/3 tsp salt
1 1/2 - 2tsp course ground black pepper (I LIKE IT PEPPERY-adjust to your personal tastes)
3 medium bay leaves (or 2 large, whatevs)
1/4 tsp white pepper (forgo this if you're against spicy good peppery-ness)
1/2 tsp garlic powder, or 1 clove garlic, minced
3 stalks celery, chopped
4-5 small-medium potatoes, chopped(I leave the skins on)
3 large carrots, chopped
1-2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms (your call, I love 'shrooms, so I go with 2)


So after you've boiled the chicken until tender & cooked & all that goodness, let cool. Shred with a fork-doesn't have to be super fine of course, chunky is good. Your bare hands do equally well. Set aside.

Now, in a large pot, boil your chicken stock. Add potatoes, carrots, celery & mushrooms. Let sit for about a minute, then add the bay leaves, salt, white pepper, garlic, and half of the black pepper. Let boil for 2-3 minutes, then bring down to a medium-low heat. Cook at medium-low for 10 minutes. Add chicken & remaining black pepper, stirring well. Continue to let cook for 10 more minutes. Consume & feel like a man who is feared by creatures of the night, a shining bastion of raw power & strength who a isn't the least bit afraid of eating chicken found in the wall of a dilapidated demon castle.
Damn. It's as if your life was geared to prevent you from enjoying it. And I'm sure it's not fun either.

Wooh! Just beat that 5 month deadline for revivals! Anyway, let's try this one again. I promise I'll be around more to keep this thing going if anyone's interested. I know Shiroi expressed interest in it & if what I've gleamed from her posts is correct, I think she & I will have a grand old time posting fantastic recipes.
