6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Chicken Pot Pie with Biscuit Top on: March 29, 2009 06:13:11 PM
I made this a month or so ago when it was nice and cold, finally got around to posting it. What I liked was that really you can throw anything in, next time I'll do more veggies for sure. I also like it that there's no crust on the bottom.
Creamed Chicken
4 Tbs. butter
1/2 cup all purpose flour   
2 cups chicken broth   
1-1/2 cups whole milk
3 chicken breast halves, cooked cube   
2 Tbs. sherry   
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
lemon juice   
white pepper

Melt the butter, whisk in flour, brown. Whisk in broth and milk slowly to avoid lumps. Bring to a simmer and allow to cook until thickened. Add rest of ingredients and season to taste.

I baked my chicken with some oil and seasonings.

Butter and flour, I like a slightly darker roue.

Added stock


Shredded chicken

Chicken added

Chicken Pot Pie
2 Tbs. butter
1 medium onion, chopped   
1-1/2 cup carrots, chopped
1/4 cup celery
3/4 cup peas   
3 Tbs. parsley, minced
2-1/2 quarts creamed chicken
2 cups crust dough

Saute onions, add vegetables until about half done (of they'll get too soggy when they bake.) Add to creamed chicken mixture   

Basic Biscuit
2 cups flour   
1 Tbs. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
6 Tbs. butter, cold   
3/4 cup milk
1 egg, beaten   

Mix dry ingredients, cut in butter, add milk, mix, roll out and cut into squares, brush on egg wash, bake at 425F until golden.


7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Cinnamon Buns with no yeast on: March 29, 2009 06:02:56 PM
These were great because I never have any yeast around.

Cinnamon Rolls

1/4 cup plus 1 1/2 teaspoons shortening
3 cups app purpose flour
4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup milk
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1/2 cup raisins (optional)

Vanilla Glaze:
1 1/4 cups sifted powdered sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Mix flour, baking powder and salt.
Cut shortening into flour mixture with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 1 cup milk, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened. Turn dough out onto a floured surface; knead lightly.Roll dough into a 20x14-inch rectangle; spread the softened butter on dough, leaving a border of about 1/2-inch. Combine sugar and cinnamon; mix well, and sprinkle over butter. Top with pecans and raisins, if using. Beginning at long side, roll up jelly roll fashion; press edges and ends together securely. Cut into 1 inch slices; place cut side down in a buttered 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes.Combine powdered sugar and 3 tablespoon milk and vanilla; drizzle over warm rolls. Makes 20 cinnamon rolls.

Mid roll out

Butter, sugar and raisins!

I'm taking another photoshop class (my 3rd one) and for our mid-term we had to make a collage. I'm different than most people so I did mine on corsets, its not too "corset-ie" but I really love it. I was inspired by Alphonse Munch's stuff. I used a lot of brushes that I downloaded.
