Chicken Salad

Apr 22, 2012 by

Chicken salad can really be just about any kind of salad that includes chicken as the primary ingredient. Some very commonly added ingredients can include: Celery, eggs, mayonnaise and different kinds of mustards.

The history of the first chicken salad has been traced back to 1863. In the town of Wakefield, Rhode Island, a man named Liam Gray combined leftover chicken with mayonnaise, tarragon, and grapes and sold it as a salad at his meat market, Town Meats. Today, the meat market is now a delicatessen and still serves the original chicken salad.

In the United States, chicken salad often is comprised of chopped white chicken meat, and salad dressing or mayonnaise. It’s often served as either a salad, or as a sandwich on wheat bread, accompanied by avocados, iceberg lettuce and tomatoes. It’s usually made to use tougher chicken, canned chicken or any leftovers so that they don’t go to waste.

Throughout Asia and most of Europe, chicken salad can be topped by a wide variety of different dressings for flavoring. It can also be accompanied by various vegetables, fresh leaves, pastas, noodles and rice.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup mayonaise
  • 1/3 cup yoghurt
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
  • 1/2 chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup crushed pecans
  • 1/2 cubed apple
  • 1 chicken breast or turkey
  • pepper and salt

Instructions

  1. Boil the chicken or turkey breast for about 20 minutes on simmer. Cut up the apple, crush the pecans and slice up the celery. Combine the mayonnaise with the yoghurt. Add to the same bowl you have the shredded chicken, apple, pecans and the relish. Mix well and add the pepper and salt. Refrigerate at least for an hour.

Atjar Tjampoer (Indonesian)

Apr 21, 2012 by

Atjar Tjampoer is an Indonesian sweet and sour dish. As the word Tjampoer (mixed) already says Atjar Tjampoer is a mixed pickled vegetable dish. The fresh flavor of Atjar is a good combination with spicy dishes. It is delicious with Nasi or Bahmi, satay and Babi Pangang, and as well with other dishes, like a hot dog 😉

In the US they have something similar which is called chow chow. The difference is the seasonings. With chow chow mustard seeds and celery seeds are used.

Ingredients

4 cups shredded cabbage
2 cups shredded carrots
3 cups bean sprouts
3 green onions
1/2 English Cucumber
1/2 Bell Pepper
2 tbsp crushed garlic
2 tsp Sambal Oelek
3 tsp ginger
3 tsp turmeric
1 -1/2 cups white vinegar
1 cup sugar
pinch of salt

Instructions

1.  You can buy the cabbage and carrots already shredded, or shred it yourself. Cut up the green onions and Bell Pepper. Cut the cucumber in half and take the seeds out and cut in small pieces.

2.   Put water in a pot and add a pinch of salt. When the water comes to a boil add the shredded cabbage and carrots. Cook for 5 minutes. Take the cabbage and carrots out and let it drain in the strainer. Add the bean sprouts to the boiling water and boil for 3 minutes. Take them out and add to the strainer. Then add the green vegetables (green onions, bell pepper and the cucumber) to the boiling water also boil for 2 min. Add them on top of all the other vegetables.

3.   Heat the sunflower oil in a pan. Fry the Sambal Oelek, garlic, turmeric and ginger for 2 minutes. Add the vinegar and sugar; stir till the sugar is dissolved. Add all the vegetables boil softly for 2 minutes. Put in a bowl and let cool.

4. You can also preserve the Atjar, the dishwasher is fine for the jars; especially if it has a “sanitize” cycle. I get that going while I’m preparing everything else, so it’s done by the time I’m ready to fill the jars. Put the hot vegetables in sterilized screw-lid jars (metal lids with a ‘dome’ in the middle are handy) Screw the lids on. Place jars upside down until cooled completely the ‘dome’ in the lid will be down, this is to check if the jar closed well. Can be kept for at least a year store in a dark place to avoid having the color goes away.

Pizza Hut Deep Pan

Apr 6, 2012 by

 

This is the best copy cat recipe for a Pizza Hut deep pan pizza. Actually in my opinion this is even better then a Pizza Hut pizza. But hey that is for you to decide. I got this recipe of Tanis who is a good friend of mine. Thanks a lot for this great share 🙂

Ingredients

For the dough:
2 tablespoons of oil
3/4 cup milk plus 2 additional tablespoons, warmed to 110 degrees
1 teaspoons sugar
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 package instant yeast or 2 1/4 teaspoons of rapid rise yeast
1/2 teaspoon table salt

for the topping:
1 8 oz tomato sauce
1 tsp Italian seasonings
mozzarella cheese
pepperoni
breakfast sausage
turkey
ham
mushrooms
purple onion
spinach

Instructions

Turn the oven on to 175F. Warm the milk to 110F, add the sugar and the yeast in a bowl. Let it sit for 5 minutes till frothy. Add olive oil to the yeast mix.
Then add to the flour and salt. Knead with dough hook to form a soft, dough (about 10 minutes).

Divide the dough in two. Oil the pans. Roll out the dough and put in the oven for about 10 to 15 min so it will rise a bit.

While the pizza is pre-baking, put the pepperoni on a paper towel and put in the microwave for 30 seconds (depending on your microwave oven) that will remove the excess grease of the pepperoni

Take the pre baked crust out of the oven, put the oven to 400F. Dress the pizza with your toppings of choice. The ones I like a lot was with meat and vegetables. The men in my family seem to like the meat lovers version.

Put the pizza back in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 min at 400F. As the temperature rises this will give the pizza dough oven spring, and allow the dough to rise,creating the deep dish pizza like pizza hut.

Kibbeling

Apr 3, 2012 by

In the Netherlands, in addition to the snackbars, one can also find street stalls selling different fried, smoked and raw fish products called a “viskraam”. Besides the popular raw herring served with chopped onions, these stalls also sell fish products such as smoked mackerel, smoked eel and “kibbeling” (deep fried cod nuggets).

Kibbeling is a snack consisting of pieces of cod in a batter of flour and egg, dipped and then fried.

The high price of cod is now often worked with other species such as pollack, whiting. Kibbeling is often eaten with garlic sauce or remoulade.

“Kibbeling” is a corruption of the word “cod cheeks.” These cheeks are cut separately and were once as “kibbeling” offered. Later the belly pieces of large minnows (cod, pollock, etc.) are also sold as “kibbeling”.

When you make this Kibbeling do not use a deep fryer with a mesh basket. I found out the hard way, the battered fish kept sticking to the basket. So the next time I make it I will use a deep skillet.

Ingredients

For the batter:
1/2 lb cod pp.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1 egg
canola oil

Fish seasoning mix:
1 tbsp basil
1 tbsp dill weed
1 tbsp onion powder
1/2 tbsp garlic
1/2 tsp celery seeds
1/2 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp lemon peel
1/8 tsp black pepper

For the garlic sauce:
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp crushed garlic
1 tsp dill weed

Instructions
Rinse the cod in some water. Mix your fish seasonings. Cut up the cod in bite size pieces then mix the milk, flour and egg. Add your seasoning mix to the cod. In the meantime heat the canola oil in a deep skillet 375F. Dip the cod in the batter and fry the cod in the oil for about 4 min or until brown. For the sauce you mix the mayo, sour cream, garlic and dill weed. Serve the cod with the garlic sauce

Potato Balls

Apr 1, 2012 by

It happens to all of us that we make too much food. I don’t know about you but I hate to throw away food. So what to do with all these mashed potatoes. This is a good recipe for leftover mashed potatoes and not to mention it’s easy to make. Who doesn’t like easy recipes 🙂

Ingredients

  • 3 cups of mashed potatoes
  • 1/3 cup dried onion
  • 3 oz. cream cheese
  • 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup of bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. I am using leftover mashed potatoes for this dish. In a large bowl add 1/3 cup of Parmesan Cheese, cream cheese, and seasonings to the mashed potatoes. Mix the breadcrumbs with 1/3 cup of Parmesan Cheese. Roll the potato balls in Parmesan cheese breadcrumb mixture, until well coated and place on a plate with wax paper. (wax paper is necessary so the balls won’t stick to the plate when you freeze them) Continue making balls until all is gone.Bake in 350F oven for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly browned
  2. Flash freeze these potato balls, by putting them in the freezer for about an hour. Once the balls are frozen you can place them in plastic bags or containers and store in the freezer.
  3. To use the potato balls, remove as many as needed and place in a dish. Bake in 350F oven for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly browned

Mix the breadcrumbs with ⅓ cup of Parmesan Cheese. Roll the potato balls in Parmesan cheese breadcrumb mixture, until well coated and place on a plate with wax paper. (wax paper is necessary so the balls won't stick to the plate when you freeze them) Continue making balls until all is gone.Bake in 350F oven for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly browned
  2. Flash freeze these potato balls, by putting them in the freezer for about an hour. Once the balls are frozen you can place them in plastic bags or containers and store in the freezer.
  3. To use the potato balls, remove as many as needed and place in a dish. Bake in 350F oven for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly browned

Lady Finger Cookies

Mar 27, 2012 by

Lady finger Cookies are light and sweet sponge cakes roughly shaped like a large finger. They are called savoiardi in Italian (meaning “from Savoy”), or in French biscuits à la cuillère or boudoirs. In the UK they may be called sponge-fingers, trifle sponges or boudoir biscuits. In Persian they are called latifeh . In Dutch, they are called lange vingers, literally translating to “long fingers”. In Germany they are called Löffelbiskuit, which translates to “spoon biscuit”.

Ladyfingers are a principal ingredient in dessert recipes. Today, their more common usage is in trifles, charlottes, and tiramisu. They are typically soaked in a sugar syrup or liqueur, such as coffee for the tiramisu dessert.

Ladyfingers originated in the late 15th century at the court of the Duchy of Savoy, and were created to mark the occasion of a visit of the King of France.

Later they were given the name Savoiardi and recognised as an “official” court biscuit. They were particularly appreciated by the young members of the court and offered to visitors as a symbol of the local cuisine.

A flour-free version of the ladyfinger is a popular Passover dessert.

Ingredients

1/2 cup (65 grams) cake flour, sifted
3 large egg yolks, room temperature
2 tablespoons (25 grams) granulated white sugar, divided
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 large egg whites, room temperature
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 tablespoons (36 grams) granulated white sugar
Powdered (icing or confectioners) sugar for dusting the tops of the cookies

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C) and line a baking sheets with parchment paper. Separate the egg yolk of the egg white. Beat the egg yolks and 2 tablespoons (25 grams) white sugar on high speed for about 5 minutes, or until the mixture becomes thick and pale yellow. Yes you do need to beat them for at least 5 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract. When you raise the beaters the batter should fall back into the bowl in a slow ribbon.

2. In a clean bowl, whip the egg whites until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and continue to beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add the 3 tablespoons (36 grams) white sugar and whip until stiff peaks form and the whites are glossy. Sift the cake flour over the egg batter but do not fold in. Then add the whipped whites into the egg yolk and flour mixture. Don’t over mix it.

3. Put the batter to the pastry bag, pipe the batter into 3 inch (7.5 cm) long ladyfingers. Place the powdered sugar in a wire strainer, and lightly sift the sugar over the tops of the cookies. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the ladyfingers are firm but barely browned and are still spongy when pressed with a finger. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and slide the parchment paper from the baking sheets onto a wire rack. Let the ladyfingers cool for a few minutes and release them from the parchment paper, with a flat spatula, while they are still warm. If you left them completely cool before removing them from the parchment they stick and hard to remove without breaking. Finish cooling the ladyfingers on the wire rack before using or storing. If you are not using the ladyfingers right away, freeze them. Ladyfingers stale very quickly unless they are soaked in a liquid. To store, place in a plastic bag between layers of wax or parchment paper and freeze up to 2 weeks.

Chocolate Bourbon Cake

Mar 24, 2012 by

Down the street of my work is The Calvary Episcopal Church, located on 102 N. Second St. Downtown Memphis. This Church has a Memphis tradition dating back to 1928. People of different faiths gather during Lent to break bread together in Calvary’s Waffle Shop dining hall.

Last year was the first time I had the pleasure to taste this Chocolate Bourbon Cake. This year they had the same menu again and yes this Chocolate Bourbon Cake was there again. I asked for the recipe on Facebook, and lucky me and you they shared this recipe 🙂

Surprisingly this is one of the easiest cakes to make. If you are lucky you will be able to find the lady finger cookies at your local grocery store. Then it’s a no bake cake. If you are not that fortunate, you have to make your own lady fingers. No worry I have a recipe for that to.

Well this year (2014) the church was selling their cookbooks. Now you know I had to have one of those. I probably will make some other dishes out of their cookbook. But I don’t know about that fish pudding dish…………

Ingredients

1/2 lb (2 sticks) of unsalted butter
2 cups of sugar
6 squares unsweetened chocolate
6 eggs
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 dozen lady fingers
2 oz. Bourbon
1 pint ( 2 cups) heavy cream

Instructions

1. Wet 2 standard loaf pans and line with Saran Wrap. Melt chocolate and cool slightly. Cream butter and sugar. Add melted chocolate and mix well. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.

2. Whip the cream and season with Bourbon.

3. 1st layer: lady fingers that have been halved
2nd layer: 1/4 chocolate mixture per pan
3rd layer: 1/4 cup whipped cream mixture per pan
4th layer: 1/4 chopped pecans per pan
5th layer: lady fingers
6th layer: 1/4 chocolate mixture pan
7th layer: 1/4 whipped cream per pan
8th layer: 1/4 chopped pecans per pan

4. Cover each loaf pan with Saran Wrap and freeze. To serve, slice frozen and put on plates (it does not take long to thaw at room temperature).
