    So guys, here it is!
    Share all your favorite,tried and tested recipes here!

    For those who try them, please post back as to how it was made and how tasteful it was.

    Enjoy!

    I've posted this earlier too but the topic has been buried under other topics long time ago so I continue this:


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

    Filling:
    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!

    Dough:
    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.

    Lol, bill you are funny!


    Semi-Homemade Chicken Pot Pie
    1 package of refridgerated pie crust
    1 package thawed puff pastry sheets
    4 cups cooked frozen veggies (I use corn, green beans and carrots; you can also use a cooked, cut up potato)
    1 package chicken stock (4 cups)
    1/2 cup flour
    1 medium onion, diced
    1 rotisserie chicken, cubed (need 2 cups of meat)
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 tablespoon non-salted butter
    Salt and pepper to taste
    Egg wash (one egg + dash of water or milk)

    Directions:

    Preheat oven to 400

    Line the bottom of a glass baking dish with the refridgerated pie crust
    Put in preheated oven for 5 minutes
    Add vegetables and chicken, salt and pepper to baking dish - set aside

    In a saucepan, heat oil and butter until melted
    Stir in onions, and cook until transparent
    Add in flour, stirring constantly
    When all of the liquid has been absorbed, add chicken stock
    Stir mixture until thick and bubbly
    Pour over chicken and veggies

    Add sheets of puff pastry until baking dish is covered.
    Brush puff pastry sheets with eggwash
    With a knife, add slits to at least one of the sheets to allow for steam to escape
    Roll the edges of the puff pastry that hang over in, so that there is no pastry hanging over the edge or resting on the glass

    Place baking dish on a cookie sheet, and bake at 400 for 35-40 minutes or until top is golden brown

    ...and enjoy!

    As everyone is sharing their recipes I'd like to share one which I love. Who knows if I meet someone from you lot, you might be able to cook one for me .

    [please note: this is copied from the internet, I don't have a clue what stuff is in there and where to get them and how to cook it. All I know is, its very tasty to eat ]

    Ingredients:

    Chicken = One, cut in 12 pieces
    Oil = Around 3/4 cup (but if you want use less up to you)
    Ginger/ Garlic paste = 1 table spoon each
    Cumin seed powder = 1, 1 1/2 tea spoons (upto you, can put one or more)
    Salt = 3/4 tea spoon is usually enough for one chicken
    Red chili powder = Around 1 tea spoon
    Onions = 2 large
    Yogurt = 3 pao (I think there are four pao in a kg, so that would be 3/4 kg)
    Green chillies = 4-5 nicely chopped

    Recipe:

    As always fry the onions in the oil till they are brown, then put ginger and garlic paste and stir a little, after that add the chicken, cook it until the water of the meat dries and it becomes tender.

    Add salt and red chili powder in the yogurt and put it in the chicken. If you galofied your chicken completely before then you can cook it on high heat to evaporate the yogurt water, otherwise cook on medium. When half the yogurt has dried, put in cumin seed powder.

    Trick part Instead of adding methi dana, saunf kalongi and other achar masalas I take masala from achar(Pickle). Take about 3 tea spoons of Achar masala (from any brand of achar(pickle) bottle) and put it in the chicken when the water from yogurt has dried. This is the time to bhoono fry (I am sure you all know how to do it) When it has been bhonofied add chopped green chillies and a little Garam masala.

    It tastes best with tandoor ki roti (Oven cooked pita bread).

    I am not sure if this will make sense to you all, however as I said it's not mine so don't know what is happening in there but what I do know that it comes out pretty hot and spicy! Hmmm I am already feeling hungry!!

    Regards

    What are surly berries? Do you know how many cups are in a deciliter (??2/3 cup)? Do you know if the temp would be better at 375 F or 400 F?

    Stuffed Peppers

    4- Green Peppers
    1- package Knorr beef flavored rice (OK to use other brands, but tastes best with beef flavored rice
    ~1/2 lb ground beef (I use 1 or 2 Sam's pre-formed 97% lean hamburgers)
    1-15 oz can tomato sauce (sometimes I use 2 cans)
    Brown sugar
    Worcestershire sauce (optional)
    Lemon juice (Real Lemon or generic Real Lemon)
    Shredded cheddar cheese

    Remove tops and core peppers. Boil until just done (color changes). Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare rice mixture according to package directions. Brown beef.

    Prepare sauce. Place tomato sauce in saucepan. Add about a handful of brown sugar (~1/2 to 1 cup) to tomato sauce. Add lemon juice to taste (about a tablespoon or 2). Add about 1 -2 teaspoons of W sauce if desired. The sugar helps remove the tomato bitterness. The lemon helps to balance of sweetness. The W sauce just tastes good. Warm in saucepan.

    When beef is browned add about an equal amount of rice to the hamburger. You'll have some rice left over. Since my son doesn't like stuffed peppers he'll eat the rice at our house. Add enough sauce to the beef/rice mixture until it holds it together. I add about 1 to 2 large serving spoons of the sauce to the beef/rice mixture. Add about 1 handful of shredded cheddar to the rice/beef/sauce mixture and stir well.

    Fill peppers with the beef mixture. You may have to stuff mixture down into the peppers. It works well if you place 2 peppers in a loaf pan. Place remaining sauce over the peppers and a good handful of cheese to the top of each pepper. Bake about 30 minutes until the cheese has melted.

    I like this best when the cheese gets a little browned. You could always add more hamburgers and an extra pepper or 2 to use up all the rice.

    These freeze very well if you don't add the sauce to the top. When cooking it later just make the sauce and cheese to the top, I freeze them in a loaf pan so they stand up and then place in ziplock bags in freezer.

    I have such a hard time with recipes because I don't measure anything and most of the time I just make stuff up as I go along. If I can, I'll pay attention to some of specials and add them.
    That chicken pot pie sounds really good, I'll have to try it.

    I have 3..I couldn't pick. Hope you all don't mind :)

    Triple Fudge Brownies

    1 pkg (3.9 oz) instant chocolate pudding mix
    1 pkg chocolate cake mix
    2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

    Prepare the pudding according to the package directions. Whisk in the cake mix. Stir in the chocolate chips. Pour into a greased 15 x 10in. Baking pan. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly touched.


    REALLY good chocolate chip cookies

    cup butter, softened
    cup shortening
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    cup granulated sugar
    teaspoon baking soda
    teaspoon salt
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 12-ounce package (2 cups) semisweet chocolate pieces or miniature candy coated semisweet chocolate pieces.
    1 cups chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

    • Preheat oven to 375*F. In a large mixing bowl beat butter and shortening with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking soda, and salt. Beat until mixture is combined, scraping sides of bowl. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flower as you can with the mixer. Stir in remaining flour. Stir in chocolate pieces and, if desired, walnuts.
    • Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-9 minutes or until edges are light brown. Transfer to a wire rack; cool.


    Oven-Barbecued Chicken

    2 to 3 pounds meaty chicken pieces
    cup chopped onion (1 medium)
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 tablespoon cooking oil
    cup bottled chili sauce
    2 tablespoons honey
    2 tablespoons soy sauce
    1 tablespoon yellow mustard
    teaspoon prepared horseradish
    teaspoon crushed red pepper

    • Skin chicken. Arrange chicken, bone sides up, in a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan. Bake in a 375*F oven for 25 minutes.
    • For sauce, in a saucepan cook onion and garlic in hot oil until tender but not brown. Stir in chili sauce, honey, soy sauce, mustard, horseradish, and crushed red pepper; heat through.
    • Turn chicken bone sides down. Brush half of the sauce over the chicken. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes more or until chicken is no longer pink. .Reheat remaining sauce; pass with the chicken.

    (For this one, we follow the Shake N Bake recipe and use boneless, skinless chicken breasts. 400*F for 20 minutes.)
