So since we cook everyday, we figured we need to organize our recipes and share the fun while we are at it. It does help that everything we make is pure genius...just sayin! Read up and dig in on some awesome recipes that we've created, learned from the family, or interpreted to suit our needs and likes. Feel free to send us suggestions or ask questions, because this is all about sharing!
This is another one of grandmother's recipe cards (although I don't think I ever saw her make this once....)
Here's what you'll need:
1c Soy Sauce
1/4 c Brown Sugar, packed
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
2 Tbls Lemon Juice
1tsp Fresh Ginger
First start of by peeling the bark (?) off the ginger and mincing it as small as possible. Once you cut the ginger as small as you can, mix everything together. DONE! Its that simple. Allow to sit for a few hours so the flavors can get to know each other, then if needed use as a marinade or dipping sauce!
Looking through my grandmother's recipe cards, I found this card which my grandmother ranted and raved about.
Here's what you'll need
Some Water Chestnuts (chopped up)
1 egg slightly beaten
6 slices of bread
1 tsp salt
1 tbl cornstarch
Start by laying out all of your slices of bread and removing the crust on them. Then, mix everything but the bread and oil together in a mixing bowl. Once the concoction is fully mixed let sit for several minutes while you heat your pan. In a large pan, pour oil into it and to get hot. While its getting hot, take the mixture and spread it over the crust-less pieces of bread. Once the oil is hot enough, place the covered pieces of bread shrimp side down and allow to fry.
Once fully cooked, allow to full cool. It will be hot!! Once cooled enjoy!
Food For Thought: Your wasted food could be a little animal's meal!
Now, I'm not a big fan of wasting foods.. So that bread you cut the crust off? Throw it outside and feed the animals, or nom on it yourself.
Apparently great minds do think a like!! Linzatart and I unknowingly made food last night that was similar in nature
Here's what you'll need:
1 pkg Ground Turkey (or any other type of meat is fine)
1 head O' Lettuce
You can also use Cheese, and Sourcream.
In a medium sized pan, pour a little oil and heat till hot. Add the ground meat to the pan and cook thoroughly with added spices to your taste. Once the meat is fully cooked, remove from heat and allow to sit.
Prepare the salad by cutting up lettuce, and onions. Once finished cutting, create a bed of lettuce so you can top it off with corn chips. Once the meat has cooled a bit place the meat on top of the corn chip / lettuce bed. Top with salsa, and onions; and enjoy.
If you decide to use the sour cream, and cheese, top the salsa with the sour cream and cheese, and enjoy
If you want to add a dressing, a ranch, or blue cheese dressing would have a nice cooling effect if you decide to use a very spicy salsa.
