1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Favorite Soup Recipe? on: November 28, 2007 09:07:14 AM
Ok, i can't say this is a fav soup, but it is YUMMY. and i made it with leftover thanks giving stuff.
left over turkey chopped
one med onion chopped
several med mushrooms chopped
canned chicken broth
frozen veggies (i used carrots, zuchinne and greenbeans)
leftover rice.
leftover gravy

First i sauted the onion and mushrooms in butter & olive oil, and then added the turkey and let it get kinda crispy. Then i added everything else and let simmer for several hours. it was great, best soup i have ever made with poultry.

haven't tried this yet but saw a recipe the other day and want to try it this weekend.
Breakfast Nachos. bascially saute onions and peppers, and scramble eggs with them, then top tortilla chips with refried bean, egg mixture, cheese and salsa.

i dont have recipes per say, i just kinda make things up as i go, but here are two of my favs.
Veggie Beef Soup

i saute stew beef with onions, garlic, and carrots, in a little olive oil. Once browned add water, and broth (or water and boullion cubes) and canned crushed tomatoes. Simmer till beef is tender, then seperate the larger pieces in to smaller ones. add veggies, i use corn, peas, greenbeans, cubed potatos, and maybe a few other things. Normally i also add a few herbs or spices, what ever sounds good at the time. And just let simmer untill everything is cooked and yummy.

Mexican Veggie Stew

Saute onions, garlic, and carrots. add black beans, hominy, diced potatoes, and crushed tomatoes, and chicken (or veggie) broth, lots of cumin, mexican oregano, pepper sauce, and cracked black pepper. simmer until blended and veggie tender.  serve with cheesey bread or corn bread.

Really?  I would love to see a recipe for Chess pie.
this is one i found online. My mother has one but i haven't check with her for the recipe. There are also chocolate and lemon chess pies. We usually have chocolate.

4 ounces butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon cornmeal
Melt butter; blend with sugars. Add eggs and other ingredients and stir until blended. Do not beat. Bake in unbaked pie shell for one hour at 350

That is so unique! How did you get the marshmellows pink?
I bought 2 bags of mini ones that always come in white and pink mixed.  They are the kind you float on hot chocolate or use in baking.  Only really needed one bag but I wanted more of the pink. 

so you can get pink marshmallows anytime? in the area i live in we can only get white.

we buy this all the time, and it is exactly what they serve here in the mexican resturants. But isn't real mexican food. We usually add hot sauce or salsa...and use it for all kinds of dishes, not just mexican or tex mex.

those butter tarts sound VERY similar to the Chess pie that i mentioned in my last post. I will have to try them out.

i don't know about everyone else in the USA, but the reason i end up cooking for a month or so before Christmas is because of all the parties and gatherings. We have work parties, and church parties, and family get togethers, school functions, and so on and so on. Plus i make goodies to give as gifts, like home made chocolates and truffles, or cookies and breads.
In the south, we have pumpkin pies, chess pies, pecan pies, and coconut pies, but not really fruit pies. We have ham for Christmas dinner, often with pinto beans and cornbread, or cornbread dressing. My mom also makes something called Graham Cracker Cake, which is made with graham cracker crumbs, coconut and pineapple. it is Very rich and moist and just melts in you mouth. Also I make a cheese ball that is rich and spicy, rolled in chopped pecan and served with crackers.
Try as i might i can't think of one item we have every year, or that is a "Tradition". I guess in my family we have always just tried to think of our fav dishes and desserts or ones that we have found and would really like to try. And just make what we feel like having. Some things like the ones above are regulars but not always on the menu.
