Cooking with 12oz

Recommended Posts

Guest Are2

i love to cook..i trained as a sous and saute chef, and spent a couple years as a pastry chef..food is one of the great parts of life..i figured i'd share some of my recipes..

 

eat healthy!!

 

some awesome products have surfaced recently, most notably barilla dried tortelloni..inexpensive, tasty, and it makes a bunch!

 

they also make a no boil lasagna that is the shit!

 

to make a nice size lasagna, just get yourself a package of the no boil lasgana

16 oz ricotta cheese

(mix with about 1 cuop parmasan, and some parsley and a beaten egg)

grated mozzarella

veggies (if desired) for the layers..like red peppers, onions or mushrooms

some delicious pasta sauce (classico and barilla are good)

 

start with the pasta, follow it with some ricotta and mozarella

top with the sauce and veggies, repeat with the layering

top with any leftover cheese

bake for about 45 minutes @ 375 degrees, let it sit for about 15

 

it's better as leftovers..so make a big pan

 

**if you want meat, just brown some ground beef with salt and pepper in a pan, mix with the sauce, prepare as above**

 

 

to make a homemade sauce for the lasagna

16 oz can crushed tomatoes

can of tomato paste

2 cloves garlic

half a small onion

salt pepper (to taste..don't overdo it..you can always add more)

oregano (about a half tsp of each)

basil

parsley

dash sugar

 

heat garlic and onion in a bit of oil until soft and brown..add spices to taste, add crushed tomatoes and the paste..mix well on low heat for a few minutes..taste and alter if needed, add a dash of suger to cut any acidity..cool a bit before using in lasagna if boiling hot

 

 

..so if anyone cares, i'll post a new recipe everyday

tomorrow: veggie sloppy joes, anyone?

I heard about the infamous garlic bread... you might have to hook up the recipe for that. I'd appreciate it if you posted some recipes every other day. I'm tired of spending money on going out to eat every day. I need to learn how to cook (or else no one is gonna marry me) according to my mother....

my sandwiches are just pb and j... very rarely do i buy meat or cheese (why is cheese so expensive nowadays?)

 

and dont sleep on the pancakes.. 1 box can make like 50 full sized pancakes.. plus they're filling, and good.

 

i steal condiments from cafeterias.

I make a mean garlic bread in a very short time.

Real simple too.

I slice fresh italian bread into thirds the long way. (Most people slice it in half, but more surface area equals more butter application potential.)

Butter the tops heavily.

Add fresh pressed garlic, about 1 medium clove per third of a loaf.

Top with oregano and grated parmesan cheese.

Bake at 350 for a couple minutes to melt the butter and warm the bread through.

Then crank it up to broil till the tops start to turn gold.

Eat hearty.

If you have a date that night, he/she must also consume some to equalize the halitosic balance.

Chocolate Mousse is a classic French dessert that always renders applause. This is an ideal dessert for dinner parties, not only because of it's elegance, but also because it can be prepared several hours, or even a day in advance.

 

4 oz. of quality semi-sweet chocolate, or 6 oz. for an extra chocolaty mousse.

4 eggs, room temperature

2 Tbsp. coffee-flavored liqueur

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

mini chocolate chips or chocolate curls for garnish, if desired

sweetened whipped cream for garnish, if desired

 

 

Separate egg whites and yolks into two bowls and set aside. Melt chocolate in a double boiler, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat. Slowly stir in coffee-flavored liqueur until well combined. Beat in egg yolks. Let mixture cool completely.

 

Meanwhile, beat the heavy cream with an electric mixer in a medium-sized bowl or in a food processor until soft peaks form (about 5-6 minutes). In another medium size bowl, with clean beaters, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form (about 3-4 minutes)

 

Gently fold the whipped cream into the cooled chocolate mixture until thoroughly combined. Carefully fold the egg whites into chocolate mixture stirring gently until mixture is well combined. Spoon mixture into dessert dishes. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving. Garnish with chocolate chips or curls and sweetened whipped cream before serving, if desired.

From the books of Po' Cookin'

 

Tuna-Mac

 

Box of Mac n Cheese

Cheap frozen mixed veggies

Can of Tuna

Extra cheese for special occasions

 

Cook the noodles as usual. A few minutes after noodles start add the frozen veggies to the noodles. Cook until noodles are tender. Drain tuna and add to noodles and veggies. Add milk, butter, cheese powder and stir. Add extra cheese to top for garnish.

 

Good, fairly nutritious, and very cheap. Total cost of meal about $1.25 and will easily feed two maybe three people.
