The Recipe Thread
« on: July 24, 2007, 11:59:31 AM »
So I've been having to cook for myself this summer and have been experimenting (with some success, and many failures) with various recipes, most of which I improvised.


I'd appreciate any more recipes, so share!

It's a good starting point, but I'd definitely doctor those recipes up a bit more.  Tons of them are just meat, with no veggies at all.

My pick for easy, quick meals is 30 Minute Meals.  I know everyone likes to hate on Rachael Ray, but her recipes and cookbooks are actually pretty decent (and are usually balanced meals).  You can find recipes at foodnetwork.com, under tv (search for the show).

Yeah, I always change up on recipes, even when I have all the ingredients available. 


While I'm still very much a cooking beginner, I think I know my tastes well enough to know how to change recipes so I like them better (including adding vegetables, etc).

This is one I like:

1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning
16 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup salsa
1/4 cup fat free sour cream

Preparation:

1. Place chicken breasts and taco seasoning in a seal able plastic bag; shake to coat well.
2. Spray casserole dish with Pam.
3. Place breasts in casserole.
4. Bake 30 minutes at 375 degrees.
5. Top with salsa about 5 minutes before breasts are done.
6. Top with sour cream before serving.

This is a good resource for finding recipes by cuisine: http://www.about.com/food/

Also, I have about a year's worth of Cooking Light magazines that I keep on hand.  If you ever see back copies being sold at a library sale or given away on craigslist, you may want to get a couple copies and peruse.

I made this last night and my family loved it:

OVEN RIBS
    * 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    * 3 pounds pork spareribs
    * 1 cup ketchup
    * 1 (12 fluid ounce) can cola-flavored carbonated beverage
    * 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

DIRECTIONS

   1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
   2. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Quickly brown the spareribs on both sides. Remove the ribs, and place in a roasting pan. In a medium bowl, stir together the ketchup, cola, and ginger. Pour over the ribs, and place a lid on the pan, or cover tightly with aluminum foil.
   3. Bake for 2 hours in the preheated oven. Remove the lid during the last 30 minutes.
