1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Seafood Pasta Salad on: August 04, 2010 11:55:16 AM
Super Simple & Super tasty.
Line a strainer with a couple coffee filters or extra thick papertowles. Use this to drain a tub of low fat sour cream.
once drained mix in several tablespoons apple cider vinagar.
While sour cream is drainng cook pasta bowties or twists till al dante.  Make sure to lighly salt the water. Drain pasta & rise well with very cold water. drain very well.
Mix pasta with sour cream mixture & shredded imitation crab legs & diced cocktail shrimp. (can add very well drained, flaked tuna or salmon too.)
Add diced celery & some celery seed. Add sea salt & fresh grated black pepper to taste, won't need much.
Serve very cold. Especially good on a bed of baby spinash dressed with a light oil & lemon.
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Delish Buffalo Wing sauce and Buffalo Style Coleslaw =) on: August 04, 2010 11:34:03 AM
I wanted to come up with a sauce for chicken that would tase similar to Buffalo Wing Sauce, with out the fat. Buffalo Wing Sauce is just Frank's Red Hot Sauce & melted butter.

Simmer 2 cups low salt chicken broth till it reduces down to a little less than half.  Let it cool.
Add Frank's Red Hot Sauce to taste.
Add 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco
Merinate chicken (I prefer skinless thighs & bonelss skinless breasts.) in about half this mixture.  Use the other half to baste chicken with as you are grilling or baking it.

I wanted a salad to go with the meat. When you get Buffalo wings you get celery sticks (sometimes carrot sticks) with creamy blue cheese dressing on the side.
Buffalo Style Coleslaw
Take a tub of low fat sour cream or low fat plain yogurt. put a couple coffee filters or a couple very thick paper towles in a strainer. Let sour cream (or yogurt) drain.
Mix together 1/2 bag coleslaw salad, 5 large carrots shredded , 5 large celery ribs diced.
Add 2 tablespoons mayo
Add drained sour cream (or yogurt), I use less, just like enough to bind salad.
sea salt & fresh ground pepper to taste. Mix all ingredients well.
Sprinkle blue cheese chunks over each serving.
(if you ae not worried about fat you can omit the sour cream & just mix veggies with chunky blue cheese dressing & a bit of mayo.)

Any leftover sour cream is excellent mixed with apple cider or malt vinagar, salt & pepper. add sliced cucumbers or shredded carrot.  =) You will LOVE it!!

I am doing a baked potato bar... what is your favorite topping??  here is what I have so far:

Baked Potatoes , baked sweet potatos  
butter, flavored butters(garlic, lemon pepper, parmasan ) , sour cream
brown sugar, cinnamon (for sweet potatoes)
Cheese: Paramasan cheese, shredded mozzarella, shredded cheddar
Veggies: steamed broccoli, steamed mixed veggies, steamed peas, salsa
dice black olives, dices green olives
homemade chilli with meat & beans , crumbled bacon , shredded cooked chicken , diced ham
also taco chips (so people can make nacho rather than a potato if they wish)
Frank Red Hot Sauce  

I am trying to choose things that work together, so it's not just a mish mash of stuff on the table.
