21  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Old School 1970s Nasty Salad Recipes on: February 10, 2008 02:54:55 PM
Oh, I love this topic. I have a book called Our Favorite Salads: Favorites from Home Economics Teachers (back when home ec teachers were smoking crack, apparently). This is just one gem - in a book that has an entire chapter called "Congealed Salads"!!:

2 3oz. pkg. lime gelatin
2 1/2 c. boiling water
1 c. creamed cottage cheese  Shocked
1 1lb. can pear halves, drained and diced
1/2 c. whipped cream

Basically, you make the gelatin, and then when it starts to thicken, you fold in the other ingredients, chill and serve on lettuce leaves.

The thing about these 70s (or earlier) recipes is that they seem to encase lots of incongruous things in jello and just put weird sweet and savory combinations together. In this book, I've also got a couple of lemon jello salads with rice in them and a recipe called "Mim's Salad" containing marshmallows, pineapple, banana, maraschino cherries (so far so good) topped with a dressing that contains vinegar and mustard.  Tongue

The book also has a lot of 7up and Coke-based gelatin salads, as well as some pretty passable stuff like green salads, dressings and cheese balls.

I've got the hometown of Charleton Heston and the place where Tinker Toys and ice cream sundaes were invented... Hmmmm....  Smiley

I am a beginner, but buying a rotary cutter and cutting mat with measurements was a very good move.

That is absolutely brilliant. The fact that the project they made with the eyes is the Flying Spaghetti Monster makes it even more brilliant!

Yum! That sounds great!! My family loves those Flatout wraps, too.
26  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: What to do with tofu? on: January 17, 2008 06:30:25 PM
A friend of mine used to make a great tofu bolognese spaghetti sauce. It's basically like this recipe(haven't used this particular one, but it's very similar):

Where it says cook the ground meat, instead substitute tofu that has been drained, crumbled and fried up in a little oil until browned and then seasoned with some Italian spices. I omit the milk and use less olive oil than that.

27  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: post a yummy dip recipe! on: January 17, 2008 06:15:17 PM
Just made this today!

It's a remake of Yumm! sauce from Cafe Yumm in Eugene, OR. I modified the recipe from the following Web site:

You can use this as a dip or sauce. The restaurant puts this sauce on Yumm! bowls, which are basically rice and beans (and sometimes vegetables) plus this sauce (and salsa). It's great, and I was glad to find this recipe, because the sauce from the restaurant is not readily available outside of Oregon.

1/3 cup canola oil
1/2 cup almonds
1/3 cup brewers/nutritional yeast (I use Lewis Labs)
1/3 cup garbanzo beans - rinsed and drained
1/2 cup silken tofu
1/2 cup water
Juice of 1 lemon
2 garlic cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp curry powder
4-5 fresh basil leaves (or a small amount of dried basil)

Blend everything in a  blender or food processor until smooth. The result is a sort of hummus-y dip with a really addictive flavor.

Note: The original recipe on the Web used 1/2 c. oil, but I reduced that to 1/3 c.

On that same note, taco bar - black beans, shells, rice, avocado, salsa, cheese, onions, lettuce - you can use just about anything.

Or a nice spinach lasagna? Lots of meat-eaters like lasagna.

This definitely rocks. What a thoughtful gift. It's so neatly and painstakingly done! Really neat.

How did the party go?  Smiley
An idea for next time is roll-ups - spread tortillas or wraps with PB&J, cream cheese, ham & cheese, etc. any filling you want, then cut into pinwheels.
