    Recipe Thread?

    I did a search for a recipe thread here, but didnt come up with anything like I'm looking for. Lol Lots of homemade horse stuff, but not so much human stuff. Did I do it wrong?

    At any rate, anyone have any good recipes they would like to share? My husband and I have a pretty limited menu, and it being summer, the same ole stuff on the grill gets kind of old. Anything easy, tasty, and yes, even healthy. Lol

    Yes, I can do a search online for various recipe's but I like to have a person's review also.

    I have a pasta salad recipe. I found it a few years ago and my family and family-in-law love it as well!

    I'll write the recipe because its on Adobe and I have NO idea how to transfer it to here.

    Italian Pasta Salad
    10 oz curly pasta
    3/4 cup 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (i use helman's low fat mayo)
    1/4 cup 1 tablespoon 2% milk (though any kind will do)
    3 1/8 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
    2 tablespoons 1 1/2 teaspoons peeled/chopped onions (i always cut back on the onions as I don't like my food very oniony)
    5/8 teaspoon dried oregano
    1 1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 1/4 garlic clove, crushed (i have used 1 clove of garlic and found it to be fine)
    A dash of ground pepper (add to your liking)

    Cook Pasta according to the directions, drain and transfer to a large serving bowl

    Whisk together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Pour over pasta and toss to mix it. Chill atleast 1 hour.

    I always found that if you make it the day before, it tastes extremely good the next day.

    You could even add some grilled chicken or any other veggies that you want to it.

    Homemade for me is when I buy it from the supermarket and put it on the plate.
    Plus its safer for all those who are eating to know I did not make it.
    Only 2 weeks ago, I was boiling eggs, boiled the put dry and the eggs exploded EVERYWHERE!
    My brother is only 14 and he wants to be a chef, and he cooks fantastic food. I will pass on recipes to him as he likes to try new ones all the time.

    I'm a make it up as I go along sort of cook, so this recipe is wide open to whatever you want to use. The main thing is its a pie with meat in it. Its a good start for shephards pie if you have left over mashed potatoes you could use that as the top crust.
    Its different everytime depending what I have in the pantry. It calls for cream of mushroom soup but if I don't have any I have used Knorr or Lipton onion soup just cut the water added

    The basics-
    Heat oven to 350
    2 pie crusts home made or I use Pillsbury's rolled up pie crusts.
    Place bottom crust in pie pan

    1 lb hamburger.
    2 potatoes chopped
    2-3 carrots chopped
    1 small onion chopped
    1/2 cup water
    1 can cream of whatever soup - I use mushroom or celery whichever I have.
    Adjust with salt and pepper to taste.

    Cook hamburger in skillet till crumbly add small amount of water to keep everything from sticking. Add potatoes carrots onion and any other veggies you care to add. Continue cooking on low for about 5-10 min. Add more water if it gets sticky. Pour in soup and remaining water stir till mixed. Dump into the pie shell, top with other crust and bake for 45 min. Remove from oven and let sit for 5-10 min. That's it.
    Left overs are good with a slice of cheese on top and popped in the microwave.

    Heres one we make when camping a lot. Another you can add whatever you have. I like grapes in it too.

    Camp wraps

    4 flour tortillas (burrito size)

    In large zip lock bag add
    1 large can canned chicken
    Handfull of diced sweet onion
    1 small bag confetti salad- They sell this at most markets its just ready to eat shreaded brocolli and some other vegies. If you can't find it just use any ready to eat salad mix that you like.
    1 apple chopped up
    Handful of any type of nuts
    Shreadded cheese of choice 1 handful
    Ranch dressing to cover. I get those small servings of dressing that don't have to be refridgerated when camping

    Close the zip lock bag and smoosh it all together till mixed
    Place mixture on tortilla roll it up and enjoy.
    All you have to wash is the knife and cutting board.

    Rhubarb pie (you can also use for example surly berries if you haven't rhubarbs).

    4-5 rhubarbs
    1 deciliter sugar
    2 teaspoonful cinnamon
    2 tablespoonful lemon juice

    Mince rhubarbs. Put rhubarbs, sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice a pot and boil them up. Don't add any liquid because rhubarbs give it when becoming hot. But roil frequently, I can say this burn very fast!

    150 gram butter or margarine
    1 deciliter sugar
    1 egg
    4 deciliter wheat flour
    1 teaspoonful baking powder

    Froth butter (or margarine) and sugar. Then add an egg. Whip. Add sugar. Roil wheat flour and baking powder on the other cup. Add them. Whip light but don't kneat!

    Take a baking tin (diameter 15-20 centimeter) and formulate dough like a flat rug. Cover "the rug" with filling (I've ascertained that filling is at its best just boiled and hot). Bake the pie in 200 Celsius about 25-30 minutes.
