    Re: The Recipe Thread.

    Actually watching the cooking shows sometimes gives me good ideas. I improvise a lot, and since sometimes I am only cooking for myself, no harm no foul.

    I do make certain things that my husband will eat forever.

    My chili.
    My stuffed peppers.
    My spinach lasagna.
    My navy bean soup.
    My stuffed crescent rolls.
    My fried potatoes.
    My mostaciolli.
    My meatloaf.
    My meatballs.

    You notice a pattern here, of course. The man will also eat fresh salad, and I can throw pretty much any thing in there. Here' the rub.

    I don't care for salad. I like my vegetables cooked.

    My husband tells me the same thing about garlic being good for me.

    Migraines. We are talking migraines are what I get when I get anywhere near the smell or taste of it.

    Time for my lunch. I actually have some great soup that I made the other day from scratch. I have figured out how to make a lot of good things for just one or two people.

    Re: The Recipe Thread.

    My husband grew up on Mexican food, so he likes things spicy. I, on the other hand do not. We go to this restaurant near our house that does some mexican dishes, but they have toned the spices way down. They will offer you, salsa, and sauce on the side, to spice up your food.

    I do make enchiladas, but it is more like a casserole that I layer like lasagna. The layers are tortillias, meat, and cheese, and sometimes mushrooms. I really like mushrooms.

    My husband's step father made the absolute best refried beans, and always was making tortillias from scratch.

    Re: The Recipe Thread.

    its really easy to the rainbow frosting... you add the colors to the frosting bag 1st, then add the frosting to bag, then squeeze and frost away. or mix the colors with frosting in back 1st then frost.. its that easy


    Colorful swirled cupcakes


    and this a neat idea fora little girls party with a cake, a tutu as the cake stand..

    Re: The Recipe Thread.

    Hot Hawaiian Burgers (Spam, Pineapple, Swiss, and Sriracha Mayo)


    Ingredients
    serves serves 4, active time 30 minutes, total time 45 mintues
    24 ounces freshly ground beef chuck
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    4 tablespoons mayonnaise
    1 tablespoon sriracha-style hot sauce
    4 slices Spam
    4 slices fresh pineapple, about the same size as a Spam slice
    8 slices Swiss cheese
    4 English muffins, split


    Procedures


    Divide meat into four even piles and shape into burger patties about 1/2-inch wider than English muffins. Season generously with salt and pepper and set aside.


    Combine mayo and sriracha in a small bowl. Set aside.


    Light one chimney full of charcoal. When all the charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, pour out and spread the coals evenly over half of coal grate. Alternatively, set half the burners of a gas grill to high heat. Set cooking grate in place, cover gill and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil the grilling grate.


    Place burgers directly over hot side of grill and cook, turning occasionally, until well charred and internal temperature registers 125 to 130F on an instant read thermometer for medium-rare, about 5 minutes total, or 135F to 140F for medium, about 6 minutes total. Top each burger patty with 1 slice cheese, then transfer to a large plate and tent with aluminum foil.


    Place spam and pineapple slices on hot side of grill and cook, turning occasionally, until heated through and well charred. Place 1 slice cheese on top of each Spam patty. Transfer Spam and pineapple to cool side of grill.


    Toast English muffins on grill. Place bottom buns on a cutting board. Top with a slice of pineapple. Add burger patty. Top with SPAM. Top with sriracha mayo, then close burger. Serve immediately.
